Trump and Phil Robertson Freak Out About "Socialism": A Closer Look- Late Night with Seth Meyers

Late Night with Seth Meyers

  • I'm confused. The US Military is an example of socialism in action - affordable housing and food, tuition assistance, and universal healthcare are just a few examples of what the armed forces provide...paid for by taxpayers and formed for the good of the nation. What am I missing?

  • Capitalist freedom, particularly under Trump, is hardly free. Your company chooses your healthcare, or you go I to medical debt. You stay employed, or you go I to medical debt. You go into medical debt, or you die. It's not freedom, if your very survival, perpetually puts you in debt, and as such, controlled by the system.

Hey bible thumper...Jesus told us to SELL ALL THAT WE HAVE and give it to the poor...and you are worth how much? If you are not following the bible, don't try preaching it! That is what your chosen one, the grand wizard tRump does.

They rate highest in happiness in the world according to United Nations. Bernie Sanders 2020 it's time to go for broke. Enough really is enough.

  • I'm somewhat disappointed that Fox didn't say when you are raised from the dead it is not for celebration relaxation eternal peace. But it is to make up for all the wasted time and energy you neglected throughout your life. In layman's terms if life is not free why the hell would death be any cheaper? Get ready for double the work less than half of the pay in the worst conditions that is possible Amen let's go.

  • The prayer at breakfast should go something like this blessed this plate and food let my wife be in the mood. Then after everybody's has prayed finished eating. The question should be then how do we pray for a person that is a sexual failure asexual criminal? What if you are a combination of those two? And then you look at Donald Trump and understand why so many are spiritually sexually suppressed internally and externally for all eternity throughout existence case closed mercy forgiveness spiritual welfare death are not changing these facts.

  • Tbh, charging for bread in a restaurant it's kinda retard. The price of the meal should always include bread in any average/general restaurant. In my country a high-quality, big-size bun (we don't make the traditional bread sweet, and they're quite big), is something as insignificant as 0,25 cents a piece. And because bread is thousands and thousands and thousands of years old, we do consider it almost the same as breathing air or drinking water. If you're portuguese you should expect for the bread to be included or diluted in the price of your restaurant meal, if you don't expect it or get annoyed by being charged for it... well, then you're probably just another big baby that never really learned to enjoy food including veggies. Grow the f... up!

  • Love all the people saying "Oh right wingers don't know what socialism is,socialism is roads and fire departments and schools" no thats capitalism within a society that knows having a stable infostructure and a good level of health and education is good for the economy,what socialism is is "a political and economic theory of social organisation which advoctates that the means of production ,distribution and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole" which also happens to have been tried out loads of times and every time it has collapsed in chaos.Try selling the truth of no private ownership instead of hiding behind the successes of capitalism.

    • Socialism is being used as a scare word by Republicans working towards a new Robber-Baron Era/American Oligarchy. The deficit was more than $1 trillion for fiscal 2019 alone because of an irresponsible and unnecessary tax cut given to the wealthy. The deficit/national debt should go DOWN with a strong economy.

      Doc HolidayDoc Holiday2 months ago
    • @Doc Holiday I am happy that you understand socialism. I have lived in a social democratic country for most of my working life and all of these are counties that have a welfare system that covers those who are at the bottom ofthe heap, reguardles of reasons why. Too many in the US equate socialism with communism. The propagander has worked real well.

      grumpy sodgrumpy sod2 months ago
    • @grumpy sod Technically you are correct. I used the word Socialism for dramatic effect. That is why I included the word "Welfare", which is completely accurate. We give Billionaires and their companies subsidies when they don't need them. That is welfare for the rich. We give them tax breaks when they don't need them. That means the people that do need them get neglected and often die. Billionaires cause poverty and death by buying politicians and rigging the system in their favor. They shouldn't exist and after Judgment Day, they won't. Thank God!! By the way, since you appear to be a walking dictionary who is a self appointed truth police, do you know what Socialism is? It is the public library, public streets, public parks. It is the fire department, police department and military. It is food stamps Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security, disability and disaster aide. If you get a check because of the Corona virus that is Socialism too. It isn't Communism, Fascism or Plutocracy, which is what our current form of government is. I hope that information brightens your day, Grumpy. 😊🙏❤️🇺🇸

Anybody who would grow a disgusting, nasty, lice infested beard like theirs should be tied up, beat to a pulp and shaved from head to toe! Their opinion is nothing to anyone but the trumpty dumpty sycophants who are delusional. Socialism is already prevalent in this country! The rich, corporations and the oil industries already control EVERYTHING, EVEN THE GOVERNMENT! It's incredible you give credits are even give the opportunity to this Robinson freak to give his opinion when nobody gives a flying flip ass f**k! And dumbty is a lying, corrupt, herpes laden piece of crap who probably has syphilis! That's why he's insane and getting worse every day! He wants power like Putinspawn!

  • What's wrong with Medicare for All? It works Let's look at what's NOT working. Overdose death rate in red states that have refused medicare is 30 per 100,000; 10nper 100,000 in states with inadequately funded medicare Medicare for All would get it down to 2 per 100,000. But that would be bad for business. Just ask Mr. B.. He was in Afghanistan.

  • Two cretins, Trump and Phil Robertson are such thick illiterate unintelligent scum that neither of them (unfortunately like most Americans) understand what a capitalist society that enjoys the very best democratic socialist policies looks like. TRY EVERY MODERN DEMOCRACY AROUND THE WORLD.........EXCEPT THE USA. The USA is so backward and the population have been lied to about the benefits of socialist policies for 80 years. That is why the US public's standard of living has fallen to 30th in the world and is still falling. 29 COUNTRIES HAVE A BETTER STANDARD OF LIVING THAN AMERICANS!!!!! Bernie wants the USA to catch up and improve it's standard of living so Americans are much better off. Cunts like Trump and Robertson are far too greedy and unintelligent to want that to happen.

  • The reason the US is so scared of socialist ideas is based on fear, as most of the issues in the USA are. The USSR named itself socialist, but only a few plans came from Marx. The eventual system they ended up with was authoritarian first. Socialism is merely a society that strives for equality for all its people, for the people of the world. The weak thing about socialism is that for socialism, people need to be agreeing with it and want to share with one another. In effect, socialism believes in a system where people help each other, and the government helps everybody. The people however, seem to be the malign influence that try to use ANY system to enrich themselves at the cost of the other. Cheers !
