Samantha Bee Revisits Trump’s Family Separation “Policy Not A Policy”
As you remember, Samantha Bee was one of the first — if not the first person — to publicly call out Donald Trump’s administration about the family separation policy (remember the “feckless c*nt” comment thrown at Ivanka Trump?) In any matter, Bee did a reprise of her song as she addressed Trump signing the executive order that stopped the separation of children from their parents at the Southern border. All is good, right? Well, not really.
In her Full Frontal opening… Read
Fox News Throws Jabs At Other Networks For Not Airing Trump Rally

In addition to the jabs thrown at other… Read
Seth Meyers Blasts Corey Lewandowski: “I Thought When You Showed A D*ck On TV You Had To Blur It”
Donald Trump has always been a shameless liar, but took it to a new level this week with his administration’s defenses of his cruel family separation policy, Seth Meyers said.
Trump’s only political skill is his total and complete lack of shame. “His malignant narcissism allows him to confidently and brazenly lie in a way that most other politicians would be too embarrassed to even try,” Meyers explained. Like this week when he claimed he had cut more regulations than any… Read

As More Showrunners Speak Up Against Fox News, 20th TV Faces A Short-Term Problem, FBC – A Long-Term One
It’s been an extraordinary confluence of events. Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s Saturday tweet slamming Fox News for their “fringe” appeals to viewers to not believe any other news organizations was quickly magnified by the conservative news channel’s coverage of the immigrant child separation crisis.
As the network’s hosts and talking heads continued to largely support the policy against growing public outrage over it, more and more current and former Fox… Read
