Friday 0n MSNBC’s “Deadline,” guest host John Heilemann played a clip from his Showtime show “The Circus” of an interview with comedian Dave Chappelle. When asked about President Donald Trump’s job performance, Chappelle said, “Apparently he is having a terrible go of it. I don’t think that he is living up to his part of the bargain, and I’m troubled by politicians that only speak to people that they believe will vote for them. And it is sad because, you know, he’s got the bully pulpit. It’s the highest office in our land. Hopefully, we can either hold him to task or get someone in there that will think about all of us.” He added, “I want the country to survive this guy, and I’m sure it will. But I think that there will be a hangover after this presidency, unlike anything that I’ve ever lived through. I think that we’ve gone far rhetorically. And I think that we just got a little mending...

Comedian Dave Chappelle shared that he does not watch football and what happened to Colin Kaepernick may be the reason. After telling TMZ Sports Sunday that he does not watch football, he went down to a knee like former San Francisco 49ers quarterback when he protested the National Anthem. TMZ Sports noted that Chappelle touched on the anthem issue in one of his stand-up acts. “Took us 400 years to figure out as a people that white people’s weakness the whole time was kneeling during their National Anthem,” Chappelle joked. “That’s a brittle spirit.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Comics undertake journalism. The news becomes a joke. Trump is making rubes of the media, and it’s playing along A fleeting moment within the teaser for Axios’s interview with Donald Trump, the centerpiece of Sunday's “Axios on HBO,” tells all you need to know about how the president truly feels about his relationship to the media.Moments after Jim VandeHei admits to Trump that his “enemy of the people” rhetoric scares the hell out of him, the reporter (and co-founder of the media site) tells the president, “You are, like, the most powerful man in the world.”Reflexively Trump looks off-camera and grins, briefly, his face flush with what appears to be self-satisfaction. There was concentrated smugness in that expression, tinged with a pugilist’s cruelty.In that scene, VandeHei points out the extreme irresponsibility of any leader of the free world using his position and platform to vilify an entire class of people, and using that rhetoric to stoke the emotions...

"They are personally wounded and offended by this man," Stewart said of the media. "He baits them." Former "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart distilled President Donald Trump's ability to control the political news cycle in an interview on Tuesday evening, explaining that the president has often succeeded in distracting the corporate news media from his damaging policies by launching direct attacks on the press itself.Speaking with CNN's Christiane Amanpour along with fellow comedian Dave Chappelle, Stewart argued that journalists feel personally "wounded" by Trump's victory in 2016 and the hateful rhetoric he employs at his rallies, particularly his comments attacking the press."I think that journalists have taken it personally," Stewart said. "They are personally wounded and offended by this man. He baits them."Watch:President Trump has been able to appeal to journalists’ “own narcissism” by attacking them, says Jon Stewart. “They take it personally, a...

In the Trump Era, the American political climate has become increasingly toxic. No sooner was a fanatical Donald Trump supporter in Florida arrested on suspicion of carrying out a terrorist mail bomb campaign against prominent Democrats than a mass shooting occurred at a synagogue in Pittsburgh—and this is on top of the random killing of two older African-Americans at a supermarket in Louisville, Kentucky on October 25. White nationalism is out of control in the U.S., asserting itself not only with acts ofdomestic terrorism, but also, with everything from the intimidation of non-white early voters in Texas to the harassment of black politicians. In the Trump Era, the American political climate has become increasingly toxic—and even when white nationalists aren’t actually resorting to violence, they are finding ways to intimidate, harass and bully people of color.Here six five recent manifestations of white nationalist violence, intimidation, harassment or bullying in the Tr...

There is speculation Trump's attack on birthright citizenship might have been the last straw for him. On Tuesday, rapper and record producer Kanye West tweeted that he was done with politics and that he feels "used".My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!— ye (@kanyewest) October 30, 2018West has been a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump over the past few months, and has used his unique position as a Black supporter of the president to urge people of color to sign onto the Trump agenda — something the president desperately needs as his approval rating among African-Americans is dismally low and, by some polls, in single digits.But West's pleas for the Black community to warm up to Trump have often been confusing. At one point, West tweeted that under Trump, we would "abolish the 13th Amendment," the amendment that made slav...

"I don’t understand how people can put out his signs knowing the comments that he’s made.” Here's something you don't see every day: A political candidate's daughter speaking out against her father's election.“I think it’s just insane that people are putting out his signs,” Emily West, daughter of GOP candidate Steve West running for Missouri General Assembly, told the Kansas City Star. “You see his signs everywhere. I don’t understand how people can put out his signs knowing the comments that he’s made.”Steve West was already under fire for previously promoting bigoted and anti-Semitic ideas. As the Kansas City Star had previously documented, he said in a radio interview in 2017: "Looking back in history, unfortunately, Hitler was right about what was taking place in Germany. And who was behind it."As Emily West makes clear, this wasn't some erroneous mistake or misunderstanding.“A lot of his views are just very out there,” she said. “He’s mad...

Butch Otter was one of Obamacare's biggest opponents. Now he is asking Idahoans to embrace one of its key provisions. On Tuesday, Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter urged voters to approve Proposition 2 — a measure that would enact Medicaid expansion in Idaho under the Affordable Care Act."Allowing the healthcare coverage gap to persist any longer is not an option," Otter in a press release from Idahoans for Healthcare, a group supporting the measure. "We cannot continue to let hardworking Idahoans go without healthcare." He added that Medicaid expansion would cover 62,000 people, return $400 million in federal tax dollars to the state, and protect rural hospitals and clinics.Otter and his wife also starred in an advertisement promoting Proposition 2:This is a shocking reversal for Otter, who is not running for re-election this year, as during his two terms in office he was one of the nation's most vehemently anti-Obamacare governors.After the Supreme Court decreed states could...

The responsibility for the state of our politics lies with the voters, says Chappelle. This week, comedian Dave Chappelle sat for an interview on CNN at the Royal Albert Hall in London alongside Jon Stewart to discuss his thoughts on the Trump presidency, nearly two years since his election.One of his key points: we should not blame Trump, or Russia, or anything else for the deep-seated racism that — at the end of the day — drove many people to vote the way they did."Even when they say that Russia influenced the election, it's kind of like, is Russia making us racist? Is that who's doing it?" said Chappelle. "Oh OK, oh my God, thank goodness — I thought it was us.""If they killed the country that way then we're the murder weapon," Chappelle added. Trump, he said, gets "too much credit" for the hate in American politics. "He's not making the wave, he's surfing it."Watch below:Dave Chappelle: Russia didn't make us racists https://t.co/WtonXUgv85 pic.twitter.com/ejevTunpM2—...
