John Oliver Blasts Cable News Coverage Of Donald Trump’s “Children In Cages” Immigration Strategy And Walk Back
After opening Last Week Tonight with a quick nod to Melania Trump's cheap "I Really Don’t Care Do U?" Jacket, aka "Coatus FLOTUS," John Oliver immediately dove into a look at her husband, President Donald Trump, aka “the abusive father America will be talking about in therapy for the next 40 years.”
This week we saw continued outrage over his zero tolerance policy causing children to be separated from their children at the border.
A policy Trump insisted repeatedly last… Read

“A recession is a survivable event,” Maher said. “What Trump is doing to this country is not. Democracy is… Read
Michelle Wolf Blasts TV News’ Staged-Outrage Coverage Of Donald Trump’s Washington
Michelle Wolf, chastised by White House correspondents for her appearance at their annual dinner gala, continues punching back, on Sunday’s new edition of her Netflix show The Break.
TV News used to be so lame. It used to be just Walter Cronkite saying boring things like ‘The President has been shot.”
“Thankfully that's not news any more. News got a sexy glow-up” and now has “all the drama and substance and Botox of a Real Housewives wine fight,” she said.
Among examples… Read

Paul McCartney Redefines ‘Carpool Karaoke’ With James Corden In Liverpool
Late Late Show's Carpool Karaoke snagged Paul McCartney for this year’s London visit. It’s not so much karaoke and, technically, not so much “carpool” either with lots of trips down Beatles Liverpool Memory Lane, or Penny Lane to be more precise.
Beginning their Liverpool "road trip" to “Drive My Car,” of course, host James Corden asks McCartney how old he was when he wrote his first song.
He was 14 and it was called “I Lost My Little Girl”:
I woke up late this morning,
John Oliver Censored In China After Scathing Winnie The Pooh Segment
Donald Trump famously sued HBO’s Bill Maher when the Real Time host suggested the orange- and-thin-skinned future president was the offspring of an orangutan, and now John Oliver, host of HBO’s Last Week Tonight, has gotten himself in dutch with a world leader for bear comparisons.
Well, not just any foreign leader: China’s President Xi Jinping. And not just any bear: Winnie the Pooh. Whether it was the Pooh jokes or other parts of a biting segment Sunday about XJ, Oliver… Read
Stephen Colbert: Corey Lewandowski Hung Out To Dry By Donald Trump’s “Sudden Ethical Backpedal”
Stephen Colbert thinks Corey Lewandowski might be Donald Trump’s most immoral campaign manager, which is saying a lot given that the club includes Paul Manafort and Steve Bannon.
Earlier this week, Lewandowski was on air to discuss POTUS’s controversial policy of separating children from parents trying to cross the southern border illegally. In that appearance, Lewandowski interrupted a Dem commentator, making the sad-trombone sound “wah-wahhh” – or “womp-womp” according… Read
James Corden Addresses “Human Decency Issue” In United States During ‘Late Late Show’ From London
James Corden, who has taken Late Late Show to London for a week, took a moment to talk about the 2,300 children forcibly removed from their parents by the government of the United States.
“Part of my job on a daily show is…I will come out and we will talk about the news. But at the moment the news is pretty tough to talk about,” Corden began – the sort of somber late-night TV moment typically reserved to address a terror attack or mass shooting.
“Being away from… 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
Josh Brolin Delivers Trump Tweets In Thanos Voice On ‘Late Show’
It’s all in the delivery. Josh Brolin, channeling his most evil Thanos from Avengers: Infinity War, stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Tuesday and, at his host’s urging, read some presidential tweets in the voice of mean, mean Thanos.
You haven’t heard “witch hunt,” “a very stable genius at that,” and “MAGA” until you’ve heard this in these sinister tones.
Brolin was on the show to plug his upcoming action thriller Sicario: Day of the Soldado (in theaters June… Read
Stephen Colbert Bashes Sarah Sanders’ Border Questions Dodge: Trump “Owns Locking Kids in Cages”
UPDATED with video: Once again, the big story of the day was Donald Trump’s policy of taking immigrant children from their parents at the border. Tough on comics who do topical late-night shows.
“There are two ways to look at the story,” Stephen Colbert argued. “You can be horrified – or work for Donald Trump.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared to want to do both.
On Monday, DHS Secy “and Stepmom Flushing Pictures of Your Real Mom Down the Toilet Kirstjen Nielsen” defended… Read
Jimmy Fallon Talks Parkland Mass Shooting With Survivors David And Lauren Hogg
David Hogg, stopping by Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show with his sister Lauren Hogg to promote their book #Never Again, had a $1.05 pricetag pinned to his lapel.
Fallon asked, and the Parkland, Florida, school mass shooting survivor explained it marks the amount of money his state’s Sen.
