This is so well done.
“British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has a mysterious new show about America on Showtime, and it’s sure to fit in fit in nicely with the current political climate by trolling politicians who hit their apex years ago,” The Week reports.
Sarah Palin revealed in a Facebook post, that like former Vice President Dick Cheney, she had been “duped” by Cohen: “I join a long list of American public personalities who have fallen victim to the evil, exploitive, sick ‘humor’ of the British ‘comedian.'”
“No matter what you do, it always comes with an extra layer of gleeful cruelty and dickishness.”
“As for North Korea, he bragged yesterday that he didn’t prepare for his summit with Kim Jong Un. Didn’t prepare! Of course, when has he ever prepared for anything? This guy didn’t bring a condom to fuck a porn star.”

“Don’t worry, I told them you were openly colluding with Russia but then I ended with ‘so what!’ so it’ll be fine.”
Washington Post: “Ben Stiller, Martin Short, Jimmy Fallon, Scarlett Johansson, Alec Baldwin and Stormy Daniels herself all showed up for one of the more star-studded cold opens in the history of Saturday Night Live, just as the sketch show enters the final stretch of its 43rd season. And they were all there to do one thing: skewer the Trump administration after (yet another) week of shocking revelations through a series of comedic phone calls and crossed lines.”
Michelle Wolf turned in an especially biting performance at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner and went after President Trump “in a routine that swerved from raunchy to downright nasty,” the Washington Post reports.
Robert DeNiro and Ben Stiller appeared on Saturday Night Live as Special Counsel Robert Mueller and President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, for a Meet the Parents-style interrogation.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Fox News that Stephen Colbert’s jokes about him are a “danger” to the nation.
Said Nunes: “This is the danger that we have in this country. The left controls not only the universities in this country, but they also control Hollywood in this country, and the mainstream media, so conservatives in this country are under attack. They attack people who are trying to get to the truth.”
Nunes is referring to the sketch below:
“I said I was going to run this country like a business. That business is a Waffle House at 2 a.m.”
“Donny Q. Trump came in and suddenly I’m looking pretty sweet by comparison.”
“You gotta understand, the guy didn’t leave me a trail of breadcrumbs. He left me full loaves.”
“Even the stuff that’s not true, it’s true.”
“All I need from you is to go to prison for a very, very long time. And in return, I still get to be president, which I hate, but I’m too proud to quit ’cause that’s not fair.”
“Its been a big week, folks. We’re getting rid of everything Obama did — health care, the Iran deal. And we’re ripping out all the vegetables in Michelle’s garden and we’re planting McNuggets. McNuggets. Gotta love the McNuggets.”
