Donald Trump spreads a lot of false information thanks to his daily consumption of morning cable news. If only we could sneak some facts into the president’s media diet.

  • 2 years later and nothing has changed... T.D.S. is more rampant than ever, the left is devouring itself alive over who scores the most intersectionality points, and has no cohesive platform on which the party can stand. The good news is sodium chloride is virtually free now due to all the salt from the left. 🤣

  • The far-left media is leading half the sheep herd and the far-right media is leading the other half of the sheep herd on the other side of the pasture... both sides only believe what their choice of news and leaders tell them and they blindly follow like good little sheep without doing any research or knowledge of the disease. Not sure why I find this scenario oddly amusing to watch but I do. It reminds me of two groups of children fighting over who's mommy and daddy is the best... My daddy can do this, well my daddy can do it better, no way mine is better... It is just sad that our leaders on both sides and our media have politicized a fracking pandemic... and the sheep follow on. People need to stop watching and depending on the politicized media fr their source of knowledge. Do your own research, educate yourselves, and make your own decisions... I know, crazy, right? But you can actually think on your own... It' true you really can

Has anyone actually tried it yet?? I believe it could work. Some things said in a joke, should be taken seriously.

  • I love your show and if you can't help me I will still watch it. I need help paying for my service dog's training. I'm not Trump and I'm not kidding. My ESA (Emotional Support Animal) dog for my PTSD died last Oct 11th. His name was Butters and Boxer Pitbull mix. Federal Workman's Comp will pay for a new ESA dog (we paid for Butters and his obedience training (2k) but couldn't afford to pay for Service dog training. Butters died at 4 1/2 after we remortgaged the house to pay his vet bills (close to 10k). It might sound silly but I'm 63 and at 42 I was on a business trip for the Federal Govt and as I walked across a street a pickup ran a red light and hit me and screwed up my upper and lower spine and gave me Tramatic Brain Injury and PTSD. I'm lucky to be alive. Getting Butters made me feel safe to be in stores and outside (not right now because of the Covid-19 and cause he died) I'm on a fixed income and can't afford the cost of Service dog training, a step up from ESA. Service Dogs are allowed by law to be with you everywhere but ESA dogs can be denied access to any place that says they won't allow them in. Kind of defeats the purpose of an ESA. I am looking at a potential new dog this week and Federal Workman's Comp will pay for the dog, obedience training, food and vet bills. I feel I should pay for the food and vet bill up to $500.00 because I don't want to be abusing my Federal Workman's Comp benefits but if they won't pay for Service dog training I can't afford to myself. Even if you can't help me if you know of any other way I can get help getting him trained I would appreciate it. Thank you for your time, you, your family and everyone else don't listen to the orange Me Potato Head we have for president and stay healthy and safe. Thanks Ric Armstrong

    • As an American let me just say that the reason he's talking about this is because he fucking can you dimwit and if I want to talk about politics or life or culture in the country of oh I don't know let's say Belgium then I can because as an American I appreciate something called free speech, and while i I appreciate it for myself I appreciate it for every other person in the world too, regardless of whether it is allowable in their country or not. Hell, I'm an atheist but I speak of Christianity and Islam all the time: and not in a flattering way I might add....and to be sure that my criticism is well rounded in regards to monotheistic religions, let me include my opinion that Isreal should, frankly to put it mildly, check it's domestic policy, and no I'm not Jewish, an Israeli, and I've never been there but I have no problem injecting my two-cents worth and my opinion is not going to be squashed because I'm not an Israeli. Now it may have taken a rather odd route in getting here, but what I'm really trying to say is, and my right to say whatever the fuck I want, just like John Oliver's right to say whatever the fuck he wants, what I'm saying is,and yes I'll get to it now, is that you're a fucking DOLT (and we'll wait while your 2 digit IQ is hopefully enough to allow for you to use a dictionary to look it up.. that's DOLT with a "d" in lower case).
