[News] Satirical News Show Clips

I decided to just put a John Oliver clip in this thread and change the name and scope rather than start a separate thread for Oliver's stuff.

So just put any video stuff in here; Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Seth Green, etc.

I did exactly the same thing. The world has gone mad, i expect to start talking to floating cats any moment.

Are we talking Wonderland or Nightvale floating cats?

This is important.

Well my initial thought was Wonderland, but thanks to you I'm changing my answer. I want one of Khoshekh's kittens.

Not political so I moved it to Everything but gaming.

I think I'm gonna pick up his new book.

Looks like a grounding read.

Because it's Jimmy Fallon?

Not a clip but I thought this was funny enough to share.

Seriously. Nobody.

Is this a sweeping generalization? Sure. In fact, there’s probably somebody out there in this crazy world who would enjoy access to your penis (albeit as more of a means to an end than actually sitting back and admiring it like a Renoir or something) from time to time. However, in this particular context, with regard to the position of power that you now occupy, it’s in your best interest (as well as that of literally everyone who works with you) to go ahead and operate under the assumption that nobody in the whole wide world wants to see your stupid ****.

From October 2016, but I only saw it yesterday. It felt very on point to a pinko commie foreigner like me, for highlighting the many things working class whites and blacks have in common while still exposing "Doug's" racism. Also, I LOL'ed.

edit: just rewatched it, semi-transphobic joke warning

Couldn't make it more than halfway through that video. The music made me feel like someone was jamming ice picks in my ears.

I'm sad that I ever watched Charles in Charge.

Well that was kind of in your face.

Of course trumpists will just say that shows how snowflakes are to weak to handle a real leader.

Thanks, farley3k, for the combo breaker. I was feeling awkward about the quadrupedal post even though it was spread over a few weeks. Anyway, does everyone remember the good ol' days when Dubya Bush was president? Will Farrell does:

Should this thread be renamed to Satirical Videos that Tscott Likes?

Anyway, I thought this was a powerful performance:

I love that Piers Morgan took objection to the image they used in that clip and thought it'd be a good idea to complain about it on Twitter with the image attached for reference. Thereby causing even more people to see and be amused/horrified by it.

I had a hard time taking it seriously when looking at the video (it's Fallon, for those who haven't checked), but when I tabbed away, it was really great.

The Mash Report is my new favorite thing.
