Samantha Bee has only one question after Rep. Steve King’s, R-Iowa latest scandal: ‘What does a white dude have to say to get fired?’
‘Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King is facing all kinds of backlash [after writing] that ‘[Dutch presidential candidate Geert] Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny.
We cannot restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies’ the ‘Full Frontal’ host explained.
Naturally white nationalists from David Duke to Richard Spencer applauded King’s statement – while Republican leaders offered mealy-mouthed denouncements or said nothing at all.
The former Exxon CEO – now President Trump’s secretary of state – went by Wayne Tracker during climate change talks.
Stephen Colbert cannot believe that Rex Tillerson’s real name sounds more appropriate for a cowboy than his rugged alias – Wayne Tracker – which he used as CEO of Exxon Mobil to allegedly discuss climate change.
The host of CBS’s ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ dedicated part of his monologue Tuesday night to President Donald Trump’s mysterious secretary of state.‘Wayne Tracker – which actually sounds less like a made-up cowboy than Rex Tillerson.I don’t think he should be allowed two cool-sounding manly names’ Colbert said.‘If you are born Rex Tillerson your alias should be something not manly — like Mel Dampler or Humbert Knucklebutt’.
Tillerson allegedly used the Wayne Tracker alias when he discussed climate change and other ‘important matters’ involving his old oil company – according to New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
Colbert found it strange that Tillerson went through such great lengths to hide his communications.
‘In the Trump administration you can be a sexist or white supremacist but you want to keep your science talk on the D.L.’ Colbert surmised.
The boomer attitude of ‘Me first and damn the consequences’ has been a disaster for the country – author says.
Baby boomers aren’t happy with Bruce Cannon Gibney.
The author’s been getting a lot of angry mail since his new book ‘A Generation of Sociopaths: How the Baby Boomers Betrayed America’ came out earlier this month.
In his book Gibney claims that much of the generation born between 1946 and 1964 is selfish – lacking in empathy and financially irresponsible.
Known as the ‘Me Generation’ the baby boomers have long been described as self-interested but never in such damning terms.’70 million Americans did appear to be sociopaths a few months ago [during the election]’ said Gibney.
‘To summarize it’s ‘Me first and damn the consequences’ he said.
Gibney says a hallmark of the boomer is an inability to plan for the future – financially and otherwise.
‘They really just don’t save and all these personal behaviors translate into international policy.
Climate is another indicator of improvidence and lack of empathy — they don’t care really care about the environment – just about themselves’.
The most stolen book among delinquent teenage literati is in fact The Outsider – by Albert Camus.
The mass media is the center of attention as never before – especially as Donald Trump’s favorite punching bag.
Trump bullies the media as no other president has remotely done.
(While Richard Nixon was paranoid and hated the media he didn’t confront it head on.)
Trump has called the media the ‘enemy of the people’ and attacks journalists and media figures by name – with no grace and usually no facts.
