  1. Jon Stewart breaks down the response to Trump’s guilty verdict from Joe Biden and the media, as well as the GOP’s vow for revenge and hypocritical complaint about Democrats pursuing “political prosecutions.” Plus, Jon pleads with the media to act a little more like the court system and examine evidence and reach conclusions, instead of wildly speculating on future realities.

    Stephen recaps the drama that followed the jury’s verdict in Donald Trump’s election interference trial, the former president claimed he never used the phrase “lock her up” in reference to Hillary Clinton, and former Fox chairman Rupert Murdoch has tied the knot with his fifth wife.

    Jury selection has begun in the trial of Hunter Biden who faces three felony gun charges, Trump was interviewed by the weekend gang at Fox & Friends talking about everything from declassifying files to Global Warming, he claims that he never said “Lock Her Up” about Hillary Clinton, Trump is now officially on TikTok but doesn’t follow Don Jr., Marjorie Taylor Greene spent the day spewing nonsense at Dr. Fauci, and to celebrate the start of Pride Month we took Hollywood Blvd to ask people if they have a gay friend.


  3. Claudia Sheinbaum swept to victory in Mexico’s presidential election Sunday, June 2, giving the country of more than 120 million a woman leader and a Jewish leader for the first time. Sheinbaum’s election makes Mexico by far the largest country to have a Jewish head of state. Only Israel (9.5 million) and Ukraine (38 million) currently have Jewish leaders. Sheinbaum’s Jewish ties are centered mostly on her family story – her grandparents came to Mexico after fleeing persecution in Europe – and local Jews say she is not involved in Mexico’s Jewish community today. Still, her election marks a departure in a country where the overwhelming majority of people identify as Catholic. She faced some antisemitism on the campaign trail when her detractors characterized her as not fully Mexican. A climate scientist and former mayor of Mexico City, Sheinbaum, 61, campaigned on a promise to continue the liberal policies of her political mentor, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, Mexico’s popular outgoing president. The preliminary vote total showed her winning nearly 60% of votes, more than twice as much as the first runner-up, who conceded.“For the first time in 200 years of the republic, I will become the first female president of Mexico,” Sheinbaum said in a speech delivered early Monday, June 3, in Mexico City. “And as I have said on other occasions, I do not arrive alone. We all arrived, with our heroines who gave us our homeland, with our ancestors, our mothers, our daughters and our granddaughters.” 


  4. kudos to Messrs. Wenker, Nix and Klinger and to Ms Donna R for courageously standing up for democracy.  that takes guts in today’s magat infestation for anybody (even more for a republican) to go so public against the cult with name and photo on a billboard. too bad the elected Rs in critterville who took an oath to uphold the constitution can’t muster the same courage.


  5. for example things like this happen:

     Anthony Fauci says Marjorie Taylor Greene drove death threats against him | Anthony Fauci | The Guardian

    After Anthony Fauci appeared at a contentious US House hearing on Monday, the former top public health official who led the nation’s response to Covid-19 singled out the far-right congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and Fox News as drivers of the “credible death threats” that he described to lawmakers.
    “Whether it’s … news media – you know Fox News does it a lot – or it’s somebody in the Congress who gets up and makes a public statement that … the deaths of X number of people [were] because of policies or some crazy idea that I created, immediately, it’s like clockwork: the death threats go way up,” Fauci said in an interview with CNN.
    The ex-director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases then alluded to how Georgia’s conspiracy theorist Republican congresswoman assailed him during his testimony on Monday, telling the CNN host Kaitlan Collins: “When you have performances like that unusual performance by Marjorie Taylor Greene in today’s hearing, those are the kinds of things that drive up the death threats because there are a segment of the population out there that believe that kind of nonsense.”
    Fauci had earlier told a subcommittee of the US House’s oversight and accountability committee that he, his wife and three daughters had been harassed via emails, texts and mailed letters for his role in recommending activity restrictions aimed at halting the spread of Covid-19, especially at the height of the pandemic in the spring of 2020.
    Two people had been arrested in connection with “credible death threats”, said Fauci, who described needing round-the-clock security protection for him and his family. And the harassment continued until the present day despite his retirement in 2022.
    “Someone … clearly was on their way to kill me,” Fauci added during his testimony. “It is very troublesome to me. It is much more trouble because they’ve involved my wife and my three daughters at these moments.”

  6. Ken Buck was Jon Stewart’s guest last night on The Daily Show. I didn’t get much in the way of coherent narrative or plausible explanations about anything. Not sure what was the point of his being there. To be fair, Jon hardly gave him any chance to speak. Bottom line, maggers gotta mag and nothing their elected representatives can do about it except capitulate, or quit and go home. 

  7. buck/stewart interview from the hill

    Ken Buck (R-Colo.) reflected on his time in Congress and ultimate decision to resign earlier this year in an interview Monday, saying there’s more to life than “arguing.”
    “There’s a lot of life out there besides arguing about nothing and telling lies, and so I made a choice to go enjoy what I’ve got left,” Buck said during an appearance on “The Daily Show” with host Jon Stewart.
    Buck, who announced his retirement from the House in March, explained that he wouldn’t follow suit with many of his former colleagues who have pushed President Trump’s unsubstantiated claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.
    “I left because I couldn’t tell the lie,” Buck said, when asked by Stewart if he missed Congress or felt as if he’d left anything undone. “[The] 2020 election wasn’t stolen. The Jan. 6 defendants aren’t political prisoners.”

  8. “I left because I couldn’t tell the lie,” Buck said…

    I was looking for a better explanation on why he didn’t complete his full term. He could’ve stuck it out and continued his truth-telling for many more months. 

  9. Main reason people run away instead of standing up and telling the truth is cowardice.   

  10. I think overt threats of harm to one’s family can also be a persuader. Stock-in-trade for The Felon and his familiars. 

  11. A parody of an old Mexican folk song about the cockroach. At this point what could be more appropriate and accurate than that. The lyrics were written by The Freedom Toast and the parody was performed by Don Caron. Video production by Parody Project. Executive Producers Don Caron and Jerry Pender

  12. Why is the Nazi-era Brownshirts haircut back in style? I noticed that’s what the Fox Weekend guy in Jon Stewart’s clip was sporting on his little pointy-ish head. 

  13. And what about the Maga-females hair? Aren’t they all very bored with the long lanky horse-mane signature looks?

  14. hyper-masculinity is in right now, it sells a lot of big-ticket product

    Hey congrats to Mexico for electing the first female
    president of a failed state 🎉

  15. https://newrepublic.com/post/182166/report-reveals-team-trump-reward-key-trial-witnesses

    “Donald Trump’s campaign and the Trump Organization paid off nine witnesses called to testify in criminal cases against Trump, an explosive new report from ProPublica reveals. Witnesses who testified in defense of Trump for his numerous criminal cases received massive raises, new jobs, cushy severance packages, and more, all conveniently coinciding with being called to testify or after providing testimony favorable to Trump—and the excuses from Team Trump couldn’t be weaker.”
    “Barbara McQuade, a former U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, told ProPublica witness tampering is often difficult to prove because the gimmick is often not done explicitly. But the trend could assist prosecutors in their efforts to call into question the credibility of witnesses testifying in Trump’s defense for his innumerable legal battles.”

  16. I hope Jill’s presence affects the jury. People like her, right?  Just look how Melania’s presence affected the NYC jury. Oh, wait …
