Hasan Minhaj (Of The Daily Show) Gives An Roast Epic Speech At The White House Correspondents’ Dinner (Video)

Ohhhhhh shhhheeeeeeeiiiit! I wanted to categorize this as comedy, but this is more. This is even more biting than mere satire; plenty of BITE. Don Rickles (RIP) level roasting of an entire room AND of The President… you know, at the WHITE HOUSE Correspondents’ event that they have EVERY year.

Daily Show correspondent Hasan Minhaj took full advantage of Donald Trump’s absence by taking aim at The President and his administration during his monologue at the White House Correspondents’ dinner.

I’m sure it was on his calendar. But hell, I cannot blame him. Some of this sh!t BURNED, but it seems like everyone took it in stride. And I do mean everyone, because ‘The Daily Show’ Correspondent Hasan Minhaj gave a taste to EVERYONE: Not just the POTUS, but key officials in his Administration, with shots for Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, even C-SPAN (who broadcasts the event annually)!

You HAVE to watch, but strap up and sack up. Hasan is hella funny, but his speech hits hella HARD! Whew.

Trevor Noah On Bill O’Reilly Getting Fired From Fox News (Video)

Comedy Central’s ‘Fake News’ with some real talk on the now former head of the real news fakers. Yeah, marinate on that as you watch this. Plus, remember a few days back, in that interview during which Ludacris mentioned ‘troubles’ that Bill O’Reilly was going through? Well, not to pile on, but…

Trevor celebrates Bill O’Reilly’s ouster at Fox News by looking back at some of “The O’Reilly Factor” host’s most racist moments.
– The Daily Show

Technically, this is likely the start of the end of all the hubbub for Bill. Career-wise, at least.

Shots Fired: Rush Limbaugh Disses #BringBackOurGirls And Jon Stewart Slams Him For It (Video)

President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria, pressured into action by ‘hashtag activism’ on Twitter recently, now has help from several nations to save more than 200 schoolgirls held hostage by Boko Haram terrorists. #BringBackOurGirls our girls has been trending worldwide, bringing and maintaining attention on the issue. Good, right? I mean, the terrorists are the bad guys; but you MUST be a genuine azzjack of a bad guy to hate on the movement, right?

Enter Rush Limbaugh, azzjack. On his radio show, the conservative host ripped the effort, even calling a photo of First Lady Michelle Obama with a #BringBackOurGirls sign “pathetic.”

Oh…my…damn! Did Limbaugh just slam a humanitarian movement AND diss our beloved First Lady? Sure did. But don’t worry. Jon Stewart got him; as you’ll see in the Comedy Central ‘Daily Show’ clip above. In fact, by the show’s end, Stewart had set off a Twitter trend of his own – a message for Limbaugh: #F*@KYOURUSH.

(Even more important, Jon had some heartfelt words for the real G’s caught up in this horror story; the captive Nigerian girls who knowingly risked life and everything daily to get educated and empowered.)

Comedy: ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ on ‘Fair Play’ in the NCAA (Video)

Aasif Mandvi (staff ‘reporter’ on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) sticks it to the NCAA… in a comical way, of course. Jon Stewart’s show is about comedy first; but a lot of what’s funny on the show is true… REALLY true! Especially on this episode clip. C’mon now. You don’t think the NCAA really cares about the athletes, do you? Sure, they care about the athletes’… ability to put butts in seats, to put eyes on tubes, to put video games in kids’ XBox console… to make dollar$$$! But not about the athletes themselves. Not for real. Just watch the vid. Get ’em Aasif!

Economist Dambisa Moyo Says China Beating the U.S. By Investing In Emerging Markets on ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ (Video)

Damn, I HAVE SUCH A CRUSH on Dr. Dambisa Moyo, International Economist from The Gambia (Africa). Don’t tell me intelligence isn’t SEXY. Whew! Maaannn, I would have listed her as Eye Candy (because she is); but I want you to focus on what she is saying first. Among other points made: The way in which China (as the world’s largest remaining Communist power) is engaging emerging economies is MORE POPULAR and MORE EFFECTIVE than that of the Western World (e.g. of the United States). We must listen and learn; or to quote a favorite artist of mine, “Get right or Get Left!” (Shout out to Anderson Scott of The 5ive.)
