Today is a two-for-one post, Friday+Monday segments
More behind the cut
Hot Topic Black Lives Matter
RIP C.T. Vivian and RIP John Lewis.
Cordy Tindell [C.T.] Vivian died at age 95. He was an American minister, author, and close friend and lieutenant of Martin Luther King Jr. during the Civil Rights Movement.
Representative John Lewis (D-GA) died at age 80 from pancreatic cancer. Panel talks about the legacy of Lewis and his Good Trouble life that he led. Panel wants the Pettus Bridge in Selma renamed to Lewis and also the Rights Act passed in his name.
Hot Topic #TrumpLiesAmericansDie
Fox News Chris Wallace interviewed T45 and it was hilarious [and also appalling]. Plays clips. CW fact checked him more than MSM and lol forever at the mental acuity test. He dog-whistled racist tropes, name dropped Sharpton for inexplicable reasons, he `may not` accept election results, he lied, lied, lied some more. He called just released Fox polls as fake news.
More talk about that disastrous interview. CW hit harder than most journos but still held back a little. Meanwhile T45 squirmed haha. There are already opposition ads that are nothing more than unedited clips of that interview.
Hot Topic MD Governor Larry Hogan
He’s promoting his new book Still Standing. I guess he’s preparing for a 2024 run. He talks about his difficulties and disagreements with T45 and how he’s handled covid in NJ. They talk about his decision to purchase test kits from South Korea vs local manufacturer. Sidebar, there’s also an excerpt where he talks about he and his South Korean wife being at an official function where T45 was making blatant racist remarks about South Korea, cringe-worthy stuff.
Then they talk about relying on experience from 2015 Baltimore riots to shape how they handled this year’s BLM protests. Also he calls Sunny ‘Hoda’. Oops. It was contentious when talking about the death of Freddie Gray.
Hot Topic Friday Show Ghislaine Maxwell Did Not Pass Go Did Not Collect $200 Went Directly to Jail
The British socialite and longtime companion of the infamous sex offender Jeffrey Epstein pleaded not guilty to federal sex trafficking charges. When the FBI arrested her, they found she had wrapped her phone in tin foil. Lol. The panel discusses whether her being a woman will affect her case, since she was aiding and abetting Eptein’s behavior. Meghan and Sunny both watched the Netflix docu-series Filthy Rich, they talk about it.
Hot Topic Friday Show ABC Jonathan Karl
First they talk about the T45 press conference that was really a campaign rally where he claimed Biden wanted to ban windows and will eliminate suburbs (yes, really lol). The WH press corps was told it was a press conference about China trade but then he rambled his normal KKK rally nonsense for an hour.
Then they talk about T45 making Dr Fauci the enemy. Basically he never made money off of it, it’s not disappeared like he lied about, he’s bored, and pretending that it doesn’t really exist. [Yesterday with Chris Wallace he said, It is what it is 😲]. Meghan of course brings up crybaby Bari Weiss and they also talk about the Trump grifters promoting Goya brands.
Last they cover Mary Trump book, which must’ve gotten under his skin because he hasn’t been tweeting about it and won’t take questions. WH press secretary Kayleigh Macaroni and why the latest bobble head is just as dangerous and inept as all the previous WH press secretaries. Too politicized, should only be to provide information on the administration.
Hot Topic Hot Friday Show DL Hughley
DL Hughley is promoting his book Surrender White People and talks about how his comedy incorporates a call out to racism, his covid diagnosis plus his son was diagnosed as well, Nick Cannon, Kanye, and other current events. Spoiler alert, he thinks a pretend Kanye WH would be the same as a Trump WH. They’re both narcissistic, amoral, neither reads, and he’s seen both their wives naked. Bloop.
