The Daily Show: Supercut Of Fox News’ COVID-19 Coverage

Remember when COVID-19 was declared a “Democratic hoax” by Donald Trump?

Remember when all of Fox News fell over itself to announce we had practically “nothing to fear” from the virus?

Pete Hegseth on Fox & Friends: “The more I learn about coronavirus, the less concerned I am.”

Man, how I’d love to hear what they think about their dumb AF comments today. But, come to think of it, they probably still believe them.

From The Daily Show with Trevor Noah:

Hannity. Rush. Dobbs. Ingraham. Pirro. Nunes. Tammy. Geraldo. Doocy. Hegseth. Schlapp. Siegel. Watters. Dr. Drew. Henry. Ainsley. Gaetz. Inhofe. Pence. Kudlow. Conway. Trump.

Today, we salute the Heroes of the Pandumbic.

Donald Trump Once To Students: ‘Go Through A Concrete Wall’ And ‘Never Give Up’





The Daily Show found video footage of Donald Trump telling graduates back in 2004 to ‘never give up,’ even if there’s a ‘concrete wall in front of you.’

“Never, ever give up. Don’t give up. Don’t allow it to happen. If there’s a concrete wall in front of you, go through it, go over it, go around it. But get to the other side of that wall.”

Hmmm…

The Daily Show Presents “Sean Spicer’s Greatest Hits”

Sean Spicer during White House press briefing

Wow, that was fast.

Take a look at this compilation by The Daily Show of former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicers “greatest hits” following his resignation today.

The clips include his assertions that Trump’s inauguration had the largest number of viewers, and that Hitler never used chemical weapons.

For his part, Spicer tweeted out this after his resignation:

The Daily Show Punks North Carolina – Food Truck Refuses To Serve Gays

The Daily Show thought North Carolina might understand the impact of the state’s anti-LGBT law, HB2, through the use of some interactive learning.

The Raleigh News & Observer recaps:

Comedy Central’s The Daily Show came to Raleigh recently to poke fun at House Bill 2 by operating a food truck that refused to serve gay people. The show parked a fake barbecue business called Bone Bros. Flamin’ BBQ outside Trophy Brewing on Maywood Avenue and the Ruby Deluxe bar on Salisbury Street earlier this month.

“I wanted to show North Carolinians what HB2 would look like in action, so I rented a food truck … and set out to refuse service to people by telling them they’re gay,” Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr. says at the beginning of the segment, which aired Thursday. “HB2 says I can do this Jim Crow-level (expletive), and nobody can stop me.”

For the record, HB2 doesn’t explicitly state that businesses can refuse service to LGBT people. But it did repeal local nondiscrimination ordinances that included LGBT protections and replaced them with a statewide nondiscrimination law.

That law bans “places of public accommodation” such as restaurants, stores and hotels from discriminating on the basis of “race, religion, color, national origin, or biological sex.” But it leaves two categories unprotected: Sexual orientation and gender identity.

Obama To Jon Stewart: “I Can’t Believe You’re Leaving Before Me”

Making his last appearance on The Daily Show, President Obama joked with Jon Stewart, “I can’t believe you’re leaving before me. I’m going to issue an executive order: Jon Stewart cannot leave the show. It’s being challenged in the courts.”

The two then moved on to talk on several topics including the nuclear proposal with Iran, Donald Trump and more. Obama indicated he still plans to address fuel-energy standards and climate change in his remaining time in office.

Rep. Aaron Schock Gets The Daily Show Treatment

So, a few weeks ago an innocuous “style” piece for the Washington Post brought to light the latest decor choices made by (totally not gay) Congressman Aaron Schock of Illinois.

Not exactly the kind of attention he was looking for probably, and it ended with his communications guy resigning (albeit for reasons in addition to handling the story badly).

But the story launched a look into his spending habits – spending money other than his own. And so, now there is a congressional inquiry/possible audit into some expenses that have been covered with inappropriate funds. Word comes now that he’s lawyered up to handle the allegations.

With all that happening, it was inevitable that Jon Stewart would have to bring the handsome young congressman into focus on The Daily Show.
