Trevor Noah is getting better. In this clip he marvels at how the President could tweet lies about the hearings that are about his lying about the alleged Obama wiretapping. Come almost laughs answering a question about it. See also Trevor’s interview with Donna Brazil, who is smart and entirely charming as she deflects a question about her leaking of CNN questions to the Clinton campaign.
Seth Meyers, using some of the same clips from the Comey testimony, throws in some hysterical exchanges using sports analogies where Mike Conaway from Texas gets lost in his own questioning. Watch the whole thing. Really funny. On these clips we also see NSA head Mike Rogers laughing about interventionist tweets from Trump.
It’s been awhile since the Betsy DeVoss hearing and confirmation debacle, but we just have to include these laugh-out-louds from Trevor Noah and Seth Meyers. Then there is Jimmy Fallon’s rendition of her stupidity. Pretty good. Andy Borowitz takes some good shots too. Trevor Noah has also commented seriously on the meaning of the DeVoss confirmation as a clear threat to public education’ contribution to equal opportunity. In the end it’s a pretty pathetic picture.
“What does he mean when he says words?” says John Oliver, picking up on a reporter’s comment on what it’s like to cover Trump. The lying theme is almost tiring by now, but it’s still good for a laugh.
We’re getting more fond of John Oliver because of his serious, but funny, focus on real issues. Take this episode on Putin, for example. It covers everything from the “Flynn debacle” to a popular Russian song, “A man Like Putin.”
Regarding Borowitz, both of these — one on Sean Spicer’s derangement and the other on Barak Obama’s likely reaction to the charge that he wiretapped Trump’s phone — are even funnier today than when they were Written.
