Neil deGrasse Tyson With Some “Astrophysics for People in a Hurry” And A Word For Climate Science Deniers (Video)

Great talk. Plus: Neil deGrasse Tyson with the booooom statement of, like, the decade or something! To all the climate change deniers: How was it that we made all kinds of plans, and reacted with all kinds and fervor and enthusiasm, to the Eclipse [Across America] – a phenomenon predicted by science – but NOT even flinch or flitter at the very real, very scientifically-founded warnings of pending planet-wide doom due to climate change (global warming, whatever you wanna call it)? Is it because beach chairs will become useless for the beachfront after the ocean level rises? Maybe because you’ll need good galoshes to go anywhere downtown in NYC? C’mon son!

Neil deGrasse Tyson weighs in on why climate change is subject to political debate and examines the privilege of wondering about space in “Astrophysics for People in a Hurry.”

Okay, they are probably not reading this post or watching The Daily Show on Comedy Central… So if you know a denier, please share this.

(Or share with the like-minded. I don’t mind having an ‘amen corner’ on this.)

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.

Trevor Noah Talks Tomi Lahren, Donald Trump, Racism In America & More (Video)

I have observed the online musings of many who think Charlamagne Tha God & Trevor Noah made the stupid Donkey (e.g. ‘dumb azz’) move when they gave shine to unapologetic Conservative mouthpiece Tomi Lahren recently. Noah even brought her on ‘The Daily Show’ as a guest. Which is where I think we saw evidence of effort in trying to bridge gaps, perhaps; or at least bold media strategy.

Hear me out.

Everybody who has or might follow Trevor Noah knows who he is, shares most of his views, etc. Same can be assumed of Tomi Lahren’s fanbase. Is it such a bad gamble to think that those followers of Tomi who just ‘know’ they hate that Trevor Noah (say it with a drawl in your head, I can give you permission since I speak drawl y’all)… and his lefty ‘Daily’ comrades… and all the dummies who tune in whenever he spews his nonsense… Okay, you get it… But might those Tomi followers tune in at least long enough to ogle Tomi, amen what she says, and listen to see what there is about Trevor to hate? Maybe a scant few might see that, Liberal as he is, he was at least cordial, actively engaged, and respectful.

Donald Trump is President Elect folks. That’s reality for America The World. We’ve gotta start somewhere. Listening, and REALLY trying to understand, to the other side express WHY… just as good a place as any.

See Trevor’s talk on paths to understanding, his book, and more during his Breakfast Club interview.

Host Trevor Noah Has An Intense Discussion With Outspoken Internet Conservative Tomi Lahren On ‘The Daily Show’ (Video)

Taking a different angle for the noon hour today. Tomi Lahren is cute. No doubt. But her views, well, we may not see eye-to-eye a lot. And though I play the horndog on here, I care about what people say…even the beautiful people I ogle. To be clear, all views matter. We have to listen and try to understand. We cannot even have a good argument if we are not understanding who and what we are fighting. And eventually, we are going to have to find a way to get along.

Trevor Noah gets at her in the clip above, but not in an angry way. Tomi talks about her views, not too angry either. In the end, the convo comes out about the same as when Jon Stewart was running ‘The Daily Show’ and would have uber-Conservative frienemy Bill O’Reilly on there. Give it to Trevor: He won with that ‘Why so angry, Tomi?’ approach. Take a look/listen.

(Tomi Lahren. Her name makes me think of Jim Lehrer from PBS NewsHour back in the day. Maybe it’s because I want to her to move at least a bit closer to center.)

Jidenna – “Long Live The Chief” (Live Performance On ‘The Daily Show’) [Video]

Dope! Dope! DOPE! I knew Jidenna could deliver the goods on the pop music tip, with an alt twist, but before the BET Cypher did you know he could spit (not even distracted by super-fine lyricist 3D Na’Tee)? Well, after this performance of “Long Live The Chief” there is no doubt. Jidenna earns the emcee stamp.

‘The Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah Makes Fun Of His Very Serious Emergency Room Experience (Video)

So, the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, had to have an emergency appendectomy just days ago. See his comical recount of what was a f#cked up emergency room experience. Besides the ‘waiting room’ shot, this was my fav quip from the above clip: Asked for more info to fill out endless forms while in excruciating (near blackout) pain, Trevor responds,

“What more information do you need, other than the fact that I’m dying?”

Ever a political hot topic in the U.S., many always bring up the fact the MANY nations abroad provide free/better healthcare than America’s. But you may have wondered if folks from other countries say U.S. healthcare is better somehow. Well, let’s hear from someone who has now experienced both.

Play the clip. Laugh through the pain. Welcome back, Noah. Get better soon.

The Daily Show’s Senior International Correspondent ‘Trevor Noah’ Reports On Boko Haram…Because Somebody Should! (Video)

Watching our posts from The Daily Show, you are probably familiar with the way Jon Stewart and his people dance along the fine line political satire – the one that separates comedy and tragedy. Trevor Noah (repeat ‘contributing reporter’) files this report on happenings in Boko Haram – with an all but in-your-face jab at the West’s lack of media coverage of such.

“Africa Is The Vegas of Islamic Terror: What Happens In Africa Stays In Africa”

That’s the punchline of the night, but you can tell that the audience was struggling to find it’s funny bone. Is it that we are that under-informed… or insensitive… or desensitized… or suffering that much from an attention deficit disorder, being crippled by news media currently chasing down leads on ‘deflated balls’ in the NFL or…

Yes… yes… okay dammit… YES!

Watch this report. We have to get our political and current affairs news from somewhere… even if Comedy Central is in the lead reporting it… AGAIN!
