The sad thing is they don't seem to care. I don't understand how so many people can talk out of both sides of their mouths. So when Democrats do it = bad. When Republicans do it = good. Love it! Now, some of you might want to really start sticking up for WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN, instead of idolizing some politician and following along like SHEEP.
SHEEP walk , hypocrites ride the band wagon .

Its meant to be funny that the whole point of satire but too many ppl let shows like the Daily Show and SNL persuade their views instead of doing the research on subjects.


That is the issue with the masses unfortunately. Self education seems to be absent with most.

TPTB seem to be the ones not very educated or smart for that matter . Hillarys deplorable's comment , not smart .The NFL kneeling ..not smart . Michelle's ,women have a problem comment , not smart . Robert De Niro latest not smart .
With every action there is a reaction . People may not be overly educated but what and how they think matters to them . Celebrity can only exist with a fan base .When that goes away so too does the celebrity . Integrity is easier kept then regained .

Congrats on finding an example of a conservative TV pundit contradicting himself.

Feel free to research the millions of times it occurs on ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN/MSNBC/etc etc etc.

Isn't the irony here that the rest of the press (including Trevor Noah) are guilty of this same hypocrisy?

Sometimes, it is the comedic voices and sources, who have the most impactful insights into how the media works. I think that comes of being counter-intuitive as a part of their job. The sort of absurdity that makes us laugh when it is purely contrived, can also serve to illustrate the weaknesses of certain media structures, governments, positions and policies.

George Carlin, someone that I know an awful lot of people around here appreciate, was a master at this. Bill Hicks was another, and the list could go on for pages and pages, of comics who arguably had a better grasp of what is really going on in the world, than many academics and even political figures did or currently do.

No doubt its this absurdist juxtaposition of totally opposing statements, about the same thing, from the same mouth no less, with one irrelevant difference (that being which President we are talking about), which appealed to the writer/editor of the Daily Show enough, that making this 41 second bit seemed worthwhile, and I would say that indeed, it is worthwhile, necessary even.

While it is a shock to absolutely no one that, once again, Hannity has been shown up for changing his tune depending on who he is talking about, proving that his interest is not in policy but in partisanship, continuing to illustrate that is VITALLY important, now more than ever. While people like Hannity rant away about fake news, and parrot the President of the United States as long as they happen to be bigoted enough to please the talking head in question, we all look on in no small amusement, mixed with a little trepidation, because its plain as day that spouting off about fake news, while having such enormous double standards on the issues, is and should be of great concern to the viewers.

We also know that it is not, because many of his viewers will not accept that saying different things about the same subject, is two faced. They have been programmed, successfully, to ignore media bias that suits their agenda. Whereas people like me, who identify as leftist in their political leanings, refuse to accept crap from people like Tony Blair and Hillary Clinton, because their attitudes and actions do not match their alleged political leanings, making their respective involvements with supposedly left of centre organisations illegitimate at best, and a Trojan Horse at best.

As for Trumps actually talking to Kim... Everyone around here knows that I have an absolute loathing for everything that Donald Trump has ever stood for. He has stiffed hard working people out of their money all his business life, with contractors going unpaid, despite being the only people in his companies who actually, physically WORK for their money, rather than sit about in airconditioned offices doing nothing of any importance. He is, as far as I am concerned, walking sewer dirt, about as complex as a single celled creature, and less pleasant to study close up. But, even I can look at this situation and say "At least they are talking!". I LIKE the fact that Trump is using his words, and not the ones on Twitter, but his actual verbal capacity (albeit childlike, inefficient, slovenly, and disgusting to listen to), to do something which, lo and behold is not objectionable. Do you know why I like this, why I would have liked it no matter who did it? Because the other, easier and more deadly option, is melting the entirety of North Korea with one massive nuclear strike, and its the thing I expected him to do, either that, or simply move onto other matters, having inflamed the situation.

I appreciate that he has followed through, and had a discussion with Kim Jong Un, I really do. If he follows it up with an effective plan to keep the peace, without continuing to degrade the quality of life of the population of North Korea as well, then I will be absolutely over the moon, I genuinely will, regardless of my opinion of Trump himself. But folks like Hannity? They change their tune about POLICY and EVENTS, based on who is involved, not what significance they have, and that is the sort of nonsense that people like me get accused of all the damned time, despite it not being what I do.

I watch the daily show and they did take it easy on Obama. However, it's not their job to inform the public. It's the media, and they are failing terribly (on both sides).

Based on Obama's negotiations with Iran I'd be worried about him talking to NK too. I mean how would he illegally funnel money to them.

Did they “take it easy” on obama or were all the rightwing criticisms fabricated from the start, which is why any issue you could point to had a GOP led congressional committee investigation that found no wrong doing???


Their whole stick is to fabricate some ridiculous conspiracy theory.. they hype the easily propagandized up with promises of accountability. Then they investigate it and find no wrong doing , but still keep touting it like it really exists..


They could get away with it with Dems in charge by claiming they were being protected.. but now the gop owns every branch of government and law enforcement.. so what now?


The daily show did criticize obama for drone strikes and many other issues.. just not for being an African, Muslim , socialist who was actively trying to destroy America.


BenghAzi, acorn, irs scandal, pizzagate, Clinton body bags, Clinton emails, exc. exc. exc..

If he illegally funneled money to Iran.. why isn’t trump doing anything about it???

The gop owns every branch and the Supreme Court...


But more importantly Obama’s Iran deal caused Iranian denuclearization WITH LOTS OF VERIFICATION..

Trumps saying Kim will denuclearize, but no one else including Kim is saying that..

I wasn't for Obama making deals, but I do support Trump making deals.

Obama was obviously a globalist puppet whose deals only benefited corporations and the globalist agenda.

Trump is working on deals for real peace and American prosperity.

Obama bent over backwards to appease anyone, Trump demands respect.

Is it possible that Hannity sees the same thing as I do? Nothing hypocritical here.

a reply to: Southern Guardian You can see this kind of thinking on the right and left. People twist things to believe in the political figures they want to believe in. That's something I've hated about Fox, CNN, MSNBC, etc, for so long. They put this crap out there and idiots believe it. This reminds me of a lot of religious people always twisting things to reaffirm their beliefs instead of questioning when something doesn't fit.

I thought the money that was part of the iran deal was money owned by iran that had been frozen by obama?


Was I wrong? Do you have proof that the money came from the pockets of the american government?
