Trump, Republicans Savaged on Late Night Over Health Care Vote (See!)

The Senate vote on Obama Care played out like a Seinfeld episode; it was a vote about nothing. Republicans had no idea what they were voting for, yet the bill passed by one vote, opening the door to scathing commentaries on late night television. Stephen Colbert, who has skyrocketed to No. 1 in the ratings on his bitingly hilarious takedowns of President Trump, led the cavalcade.

John Oliver Details How TrumpCare is Shitty Deal for Everyone, Except Rich

John Oliver reveals an eye-opening fact about Paul Ryan’s American Health Care Act: Not even Donald Trump wants his name on it and he’s slapped it on a lot of shitty products over the years, from Trump Vodka to Trump Steaks to his Chinese-made neckties.

President Barack Obama proved that a politician could indeed do Stephen Cobert’s job after he dropped in on the Comedy Central talk show host, who was doing a special program from Washington, D.C. last night (Dec. 8). So how’d the president do? Just as Cobert was warming up to do his regular “The Word” feature, Obama entered from stage right. (Or was that left?) He took over the anchor chair and made a slight change to the presentation.

Suzanne Somers Blasts ObamaCare in WSJ; Corrections Follow

Suzannae Somers, Queen of the Thighmaster and promoter of “scientifically unproven and dangerous” therapies to treat cancer and aging, has become the right-wing celebrity poster girl for anti-ObamaCare zealots. But her op-ed article in the Wall Street Journal, yesterday, left a lot to be desired.
