Colbert breaks down the Uranium One/Mueller conspiracy insanity

Louie Gohmert wants to get Mueller fired because he thinks he's in cahoots with Clinton and Uranium One. It's amazing the lunacy that happens when ideology trumps reality.

Maher interviews Chelsea Handler

She's on a mission to get women elected through Emily's List and she's succeeding. The panel then discusses the larger issue of a culture that supports white male dominance, and one that has destroyed the ability to think critically and contextually. Also with the Frankin/Moore issue, Dems need to defend Franken by putting their behavioral differences in context instead of just caving and kicking him out of the Senate for some misguided sense of fairness.

The true meaning of the season

Maher's new rule on what this holiday season is all about. You know it's not the conventional meaning. Maher then plays the ghost of Christmas past to confront Dump with who he used to be, and who he is now.

Maher's monologue

Topics include Roy Moore and Al Franken, and the false equivalence drawn between them. Maher wants to start a #metoo campaign for those who can tell the difference.

Mueller issues subpoena to Dump campaign

According to Bloomberg, the subpoena is to more than a dozen Dump campaign officials for documents related to links with Russia. The noose tightens by the day.

Texas woman says Fu*k Dump and those who voted for him

On the back of her truck! And a sheriff thinks she's violating the law but the ACLU cited a Supreme Corp decision "that protects using vulgar language in public." So I wholeheartedly agree with this sentiment in its own terms.

Jordan Peterson: the stupid man's smart person

Some excerpts from this article giving some perspective on Peterson and his fans.

"There is no polite way to put this [] I’m just going to say it: Spend half an hour on his website, sit through a few of his interminable videos, and you realize that what he has going for him [...] is that Jordan Peterson is the stupid man’s smart person."

"It’s easy to assume Peterson is deserving of respect. A lot of what he says sounds, on the surface, like serious thought. It’s easy to laugh at him: after all, most of what he says is, after fifteen seconds’ consideration, completely inane. But in between his long rambling pseudo-academic takes on common self-help advice and his weird fixation on Disney movies, is a dreadfully serious message.

"What he’s telling you is that certain people—most of them women and minorities—are trying to destroy not only our freedom to spite nonbinary university students for kicks, but all of Western civilization and the idea of objective truth itself. He’s telling you that when someone tells you racism is still a problem and that something should be done about it, they are, at best, a dupe and, at worst, part of a Marxist conspiracy to destroy your way of life."

Some details of the Repugnantan tax plan

See this, which uses Congress' Joint Committee on Taxation for the projections. In the next decade households earning $75,000-$100,000 will no longer get any tax cut. Those under $75,000 will get tax increases. While those over $100,000 get bigger tax breaks commensurate with greater income.

Should Hillary Clinton be impeached?

The Kimmel team interviews people on the street with this question. The ones they showed didn't even know the meaning of impeachment, yet they hated Clinton so much they wanted it done to her. This is a sad comment on our country that this level of idiocy decides elections.

Colbert: Senator Frankin leads into more on Moore

Now it's Frankin's turn. Which is just a lead in to more about Roy Moore.
