Say what? Kamala Harris tosses word salad after meeting Jamaican prime minister

 Say what? Kamala Harris tosses word salad after meeting Jamaican prime minister | Washington Examiner

The Republican National Committee tweeted a clip of Harris's comments, which Twitter users promptly deemed gibberish.


"Oh Boy," tweeted Grace Vazquez. "Her term papers in college must have been a blast to read. 'While the effort to assist is essential, our effort in assisting will be of the most essential!'”

"Damn! Poor Jamaica!" tweeted a user under the handle Nithyanand. "After this speech, administration released a caveat that assistance will only be provided if they understood and can explain back what the Vice President said!"

"She has convinced herself that everything she says is deeply profound," wrote MrHoneyStinger under a YouTube posting of the clip by the GOP War Room.

Harris, whose communications team has seen near-constant turnover and who has been plagued by White House whispers that she doesn't prepare for assignments, prompted head-scratching earlier this month with a bizarre ramble in Louisiana.

"We were all doing a tour of the library here and talking about the significance of the passage of time, right?" Harris said while promoting internet access in rural areas. "The significance of the passage of time. So when you think about it, there is great significance to passage of time. There is such great significance to the passage of time when you think of a day in the life of our children."

Slapgate 2022; UPDATED

 Colbert Wants Peter Doocy Slapped For Asking Wrong Questions – PJ Media 

Yes, it has come to this: Leftists are so open now about their authoritarianism and determination to crush dissent that Colbert got applause for saying that the president of the United States should physically assault a reporter for asking him questions he didn’t like.

The Slap Heard Around the World – PJ Media  . . ."We can hope that Will Smith’s slap remains an aberration; a country in which comedians are regularly assaulted for making jokes will soon be a rather humorless place. But unless Americans are willing to reestablish the hard barrier between words and violence, we will become a far more silent and far more violent nation."

Oscars co-host Wanda Sykes slams Academy for allowing Will Smith to stay after slapping Chris Rock | Daily Mail Online She was traumatized by the incident. TRAUMATIZED, I tell you!

UPDATE: Oscars bosses are accused of LYING about asking Will Smith to leave ceremony after he assaulted Chris Rock: Whoopi Goldberg claims there were fears 'manic' star would be filmed 'struggling' with security   
. . ."On Thursday, conflicting accounts emerged of Sunday night's drama. Sources close to the star told TMZ that Oscars producer Will Packer had directly approached Smith and told him 'We do not want you to leave,' after he slapped host Chris Rock for joking about Smith's wife Jada.

"But an official Academy statement claimed that Smith had in fact been asked to leave. And speaking on The View Thursday morning, Goldberg said she knew why no attempt had been made to forcibly remove Smith over the attack.

"Goldberg said Academy bosses feared Smith was having a 'manic' episode and feared that any attempts to forcibly remove him could have resulted in an on-camera struggle. 

"But according to TMZ, Oscars producer Packer told Smith he could remain at around 8pm, about 35 minutes after the slap and just five minutes before the actor won his first Academy Award for his role in King Richard.". . . 

Yet as the gravity of the situation became clear, Smith then posted a public apology to Instagram 24 hours after the ceremony, saying he wanted to say sorry formally to Rock.

He said his behavior was 'unacceptable and inexcusable' and left him 'embarrassed'.

'I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris,' he wrote.

'I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. 

'There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.' 

Kindness? You mean this? 

'Where do I get my reputation back?' Trump celebrates as FEC FINES Hillary Clinton

Republicans, please always be better than these people. There is evil growing in our nation and the Democrat Party is its enabler. TD

 FEC FINES Hillary Clinton and the DNC for paying firm who produced the Steele dossier | Daily Mail Online  "Former Donald Trump on Wednesday accused his 2016 opponent of trying to 'illegally destroy' his campaign after it emerged that regulators had fined Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee of failing to properly disclose spending on the controversial Steele dossier. 

"Trump used the findings to repeat his attacks on a slew of enemies that he listed in a lawsuit last week.  

"Payments by the Clinton campaign and the D.N.C. to a law firm, he said, were 'a guise to hire numerous companies, all of whom are now named defendants in my lawsuit, to try and take down and illegally destroy your favorite president, me,' he said in an emailed statement

" 'This was done to create, as I have stated many times, and is now confirmed, a hoax funded by the DNC and the Clinton Campaign. 

" 'This corruption is only beginning to be revealed, is un-American, and must never be allowed to happen again. Where do I go to get my reputation back?'

"Details of the F.E.C. fines emerged on Wednesday, allowing Trump to return to one of his favorite topics: The way he was accused of links to Russia in the 2016, and the start of what he describes as a 'witch hunt.' 

"A letter sent to a conservative group that requested an inquiry, and were first published by the Washington Examiner, showed that the D.N.C. was fined $105,000 and the Clinton campaign was fined $8,000.". . .

FINALLY: Finding Holds DNC and Hillary Clinton Campaign Accountable for Dossier Hoax – RedState  "We may be in uncharted territory here. After everything that the Clintons have done in their lives, there’s finally an official finding that is holding them accountable. I’m not sure that I ever thought I would see the day, but here we are — and it’s a significant finding on behalf of the truth.

"The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has fined the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign for lying about th funding behind the Steele dossier that they used to try to spread the Russia collusion hoax. The dossier was then used to smear Donald Trump and fuel an FBI investigation that surveilled the Trump team. There probably has not been anything in history that has been so wrong and so damaging to the country against a political opponent.". . .

Disney vs. DeSantis


And the common sense award goes to Governor DeSantis - American Thinker   . . ."Yes, common sense, such as keeping seven-year-olds from sexual lectures by perverse teachers.  It makes so much sense that parents support the idea, but the "wokes" call it discrimination.

"We saw parents overthrow a Democrat-led government in Virginia.  School boards are suddenly the hottest thing from coast to coast.

"How many more will be overthrown by parents calling for common sense before the Democrat party locks up the wokes?

"The answer is blowing in the storm coming in November.  In the meantime, the fellow from Florida got lots of applause for signing a law that makes a lot of sense."

New Poll Crushes Democrats’ Dreams of Ousting Ron DeSantis – PJ Media   "Probably nothing would please Democrats more than to end Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s political career before he sets his sights on running for president. DeSantis only narrowly defeated Andrew Gillum in the 2018 midterm-year election but has since become a rising star in the GOP and a political force to be reckoned with due to his stellar leadership during the pandemic and his willingness to take on big issues.

"The media can’t stand DeSantis and have tried aggressively to take him down with bogus attacks. One might think that the constant attacks from the press would have hurt him as he runs for reelection, but a new poll says DeSantis is crushing the competition — and it’s not even close.". . .

According to a poll of Florida residents by the Saint Leo University Polling Institute, DeSantis leads Democrat Nikki Fried, the state’s Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services, 50.6% to 27%, with 22.4% undecided.

 Shut Up, Mickey: Disney Vows to Fight DeSantis in Court While a Fourth-Grade Teacher Is Arrested for Attempted Child Rape – PJ Media   

   Wow. You can almost see those letters in gold, moving vertically over a starfield while a symphonic theme stirs feelings of rebellion against a repressive regime….

There are, however, some problems with that notion.

1) As anyone with brains enough not to watch the Oscars can tell you, Disney is part of the oppressive regime.

2) The “Don’t Say Gay” bill, as leftists and cloistered elites like calling it, literally does not say “gay.”. . .

Kelly added that it's high time parents understood the type of content Disney is gearing up to serve their children and called on them to closely vet what their charges are consuming.

“Don’t put a Disney movie on in front of your kid before you fully come to understand what it’s going to be promoting, who it’s going to be starring, and what agenda they’re pushing," she warned. "They’re no longer the Disney of yesterday."

The Trickle-Down Genius of Ron DeSantis – PJ Media "It’s one very easy thing to tell a pollster that, sure, you approve of the governor who avoided most of the COVID madness and signed popular legislation to prevent grown adults from engaging in frank sex talk with second-graders.

"It’s quite another, more difficult thing, to get registered to vote with a particular party or even change your lifelong party affiliation.

"But that’s exactly what residents of Ron DeSantis’ Florida are doing — and in numbers too big to ignore.

"A March surge of GOP registrations has widened the party’s lead, first won just last year. A spokesperson for the DeSantis campaign told Fox News this week that the surge in GOP registrations gives Republicans an advantage of over 101,000 voters.

"When DeSantis was first sworn in back in 2019, Democrats led by 255,000. That’s a massive swing. Republican registrations have outpaced Democrats by more than 350,000 in just 29 months.". . .


Disney Exec Admits Implementing ‘Not-at-All-Secret Gay Agenda’ in Children’s Programming

Legal Insurrection   "Can’t we just let kids be kids?

"Instead of teaching children how to be polite, numbers, colors, and singing, Disney wants to push gender theory to the front for young children.

"Why is it so important to these people that 5-year-olds know anything about sex? If you’ve watched the new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse you cannot even tell that Mickey and Minnie are a couple or Daisy and Donald.

"Christopher Rufo posted videos of a Disney employee meeting. They admitted their top priority is gender theory in children’s programming.

"I included transcripts where I could. You don’t need any commentary. Just watch the videos.". . .

From this Mother of the Year:

. . .Burke: “I’m here as a mother of two queer children, actually, one transgender child, and one pansexual child and — and also as a leader. And that was the thing that really got me because I have heard so much from so many of my colleagues over the course of the last couple of weeks, in open forums, and through emails and phone conversations. And I feel a responsibility to speak, not just for myself, but for them. To all of us, we had a — we had an open forum last week at 20th, where, again, the home of really incredible, groundbreaking LGBTQIA stories over the years, where one of our execs stood up and said, ‘You know, we only have a handful of queer leads in our content.’ And I went, ‘What? That can’t be true!’ And I — and I — and I realized, ‘Oh, it actually is true.’ We have many, many, many LGBTQIA characters in our stories, and — and — and yet, we don’t have enough leads and narratives in which gay characters just — just get to be characters and — and not have to be about gay stories. And so that’s been very eye-opening for me.' ”. . .

Pro-Crime Party Nominates a Justice

 Ann Coulter  "Presidents are entitled to nominate Supreme Court justices who represent their party and its values. Using that as our guide, President Joe Biden picked the Democrats’ perfect Supreme Court justice: Ketanji Brown Jackson.

"If you’d given me a thousand bucks to come up with a question that would stump a Supreme Court nominee, I never would have thought of: What’s a woman?

"Democratic values.

"As Sens. Josh Hawley, Tom Cotton, Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham amply demonstrated at the nomination hearings last week, Judge Jackson really likes defendants in child pornography cases. She’s partial to all criminals, but the child porn cases make the point bracingly.

"In seven out of seven child pornography cases that came before Judge Jackson, where the sentencing was up to the judge, she imposed sentences that were a fraction of those recommended under the sentencing guidelines. In all seven cases, her sentences were also far below those requested by the prosecutor.

"Not 2 1/2 years, instead of three — more like three months instead of 10 years. In United States v. Hawkins, the defendant possessed and distributed multiple images of child abuse of kids, including photos of prepubescent boys engaging in oral and anal sex, a video of an 8-year-old boy masturbating, and one of an 11-year-old boy being anally penetrated by an adult man.

"The federal sentencing guidelines recommended eight to 10 years. Judge Jackson sentenced the defendant to three months.

"Yes, yes, he was only 18, and he was remorseful. Good for him!

"But Judge Jackson also dramatically departed downward in sentencing a couple of ripe perverts — one who attempted to travel across state lines to molest a 9-year-old girl (when his thousands of child porn images weren’t enough); and another who’d distributed more than a hundred pornographic photos and videos of his own daughter.". . .

In conclusion: The media have also issued reams of "context," "fact checks" and "debunkings" ... all to prove that KBJ is a virtual Eliot Ness on crime! Don't believe your eyes! Forget everything you know about the Democrats! It's all lies and conspiracy theories!

Dem Nightmare: What If the War Ends Before November?

 Ann Coulter   

"Great news for Joe Biden. After months of abysmal public approval numbers, President Biden’s favorability among registered voters has soared by 2 points to 45%! And all he had to do was bring us to the brink of World War III.

'The media are thrilled with the possibility of nuclear war with Russia. Catastrophes are terrific for ratings, and flood-the-zone coverage of a war between two faraway countries that has almost zero effect on the lives of most Americans allows journalists to act like deep-think, geopolitical strategists (after having quickly looked up “Ukraine” on Wikipedia).

"They dragged out the COVID panic porn for two straight years. By now, the only people still interested in pandemic updates are hysterical liberal women in Manhattan claiming to have “long-haul COVID.”

"The national pastime has segued seamlessly from watching TV anchors cry on TV about the coronavirus to watching TV anchors cry on TV about the fate of Ukrainian children.

"Of course, when American kids are murdered expressly as a result of our own government’s policies, the journalism protocol is: No crying, no coverage.

"There will be no tears for the 5-year-old Florida girl killed in October when an illegal alien from Guatemala, Ernesto Lopez Morales, tanked up on six 32-ounce beers, then plowed into the little girl and her mother as he was driving to get more beer.

"Nor for Texas teenager Adrienne Sophia Exum, killed instantly one Sunday afternoon in 2020 when Heriberto Fuerte-Padilla, an illegal alien from Mexico, smashed into the car she was driving, then fled the scene. There’s even some news: The Biden administration announced that Fuerte-Padilla will not be deported.

"And there will be no weeping for the still-unidentified mother and daughter, aged 59 and 22, killed last December when a human smuggler (a “U.S. citizen,” aka “anchor baby”) carrying six illegals across the border into Texas, sped through a stop sign and T-boned the pair.". . .

Ron DeSantis Shows Disney No Mercy as War of Words Over Parents’ Rights Bill Escalates

Disney as many of us knew it in our days of being children

Watch: Ron DeSantis Shows Disney No Mercy as War of Words Over Parents’ Rights Bill Escalates – RedState

"We reported Monday on how Gov. Ron DeSantis signed the unfairly maligned Florida parental rights bill into law, which prompted the Usual Suspects on the left and in the media to once again howl with manufactured outrage that DeSantis had “banned” saying “gay” in public school classrooms (he hasn’t).

"One of the more noteworthy examples of a prominent DeSantis critic weighing in came from Disney, which promptly proclaimed that they would be on the frontlines of supporting efforts by dark money/billionaire-funded radical leftist groups to get the law, which among other things prevents instruction of gender identity and sexual orientation topics in grades K-3, repealed or struck down by the courts. For those who missed “woke” Disney’s response, read below:

"It was a helluva eye-opening statement for Disney to make considering their decades of making oodles of money on grounds that they are a “family-friendly” organization dedicated to providing wholesome entertainment and rides that young and old alike can enjoy.

"That’s a point that DeSantis has also made in the past, but in fresh comments made Tuesday, DeSantis took it a step further, going off not just on the media’s continued bias over the law, but also on Disney for “crossing a line” in trying to dictate what Florida law should be.

"In his remarks, DeSantis put Disney on notice, telling them that not only will he not be bullied, but also that the state is “governed by the interests of the people” and not woke corporations like Disney. Further, he noted that it was interesting that as the bill was floating through the Florida House, Republican leaders didn’t hear one word from Disney opposing it. Lastly, he reminded people of Disney’s close ties to China, pointing out that their reaction would be very different had the bill banned discussion of “the oppression of the Uyghurs in China”:. . .

Collins to back Jackson for Supreme Court, calls confirmation process ‘broken’

What about Kinsinger, Romney and other RINOS?

 Portland Press Herald

Collins is so far the only Republican who plans to vote to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

"Sen. Susan Collins will vote to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court, her office announced Wednesday morning, making her the first Republican to commit to doing so and all but assuring Jackson’s confirmation.

"Collins – who met a second time with Jackson after last week’s confirmation hearings — said she had reviewed the nominee’s record and believed “she possesses the experience, qualifications and integrity” to serve on the nation’s highest court.

“In my meetings with Judge Jackson, we discussed in depth several issues that were raised in her hearing,” Collins said in her statement. “Sometimes I agreed with her; sometimes I did not. And just as I have disagreed with some of her decisions to date, I have no doubt that, if Judge Jackson is confirmed, I will not agree with every vote that she casts as a Justice. That alone, however, is not disqualifying.”

"Collins was not available for an interview Wednesday, but she told the New York Times her unusual second meeting with Jackson Tuesday reassured her the nominee – who would be the first Black woman to serve on the court – would not be “bending the law to meet a personal preference.”. . .

The Embarrassment Of Being A Democrat Isn’t Improving, It’s Getting Worse

 The Embarrassment Of Being A Democrat Isn't Improving, It's Getting Worse - The Blue State Conservative

"About a year ago I wrote an article about my Democrat friends.  We were barely 2 months into the Harris/Biden administration and they were getting a bit embarrassed about the leadership they had helped foist on the country.  My naïve friends had bought into the propaganda that all of the turmoil in Washington was because of Donald Trump.  They voted for a return to normalcy.  Only two months into this administration, they were embarrassed to see that they had been hoodwinked big time.

"The Dems were now in charge of everything, yet the turmoil was greater than ever.  Within 2 months of Joe’s inauguration, they could see that a return to normalcy meant a war on oil and gas, transsexuals embraced (figuratively and literally) in the military, and CRT being pushed nationwide.  The federal government was officially in the social engineering business.  The administration was even working with the social media oligarchs to control the messaging.  But what’s a little suppression of free speech to achieve “social justice”?

"I predicted that the embarrassment being suffered by a great many (alas, not all) Biden voters would turn to anger in time for the midterm elections.  I was way off.  In fact, my predictions were so wrong that I owe my readers a heartfelt mea culpa.

"I knew that Biden was going to be a disaster, but honestly, I thought it would take more than one year for him to reach a Carteresque level of failure.  How wrong I was.  Carter was a train wreck.  But Joe accomplished all of Carter’s failures, and more, in only one year.  One could objectively argue that Carter was four times better at being president than Biden.

"Gas prices are now at an all-time high, breaking the record set during the Obama administration.  Everybody knows the prices haven’t peaked yet.  Biden’s recommendation?  Buy an electric car.

"Women’s bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms are now open to men with gender confusion or malice – and the administration doesn’t much care which.  In fact, USA Today’s Woman of the Year is Admiral Rachel Levine, a man who dresses as a woman, even while in uniform.  China must be terrified.  Sports Illustrated did a feature on Lia Thomas, a man who wears a woman’s speedo to compete in women’s swimming.  I guess we should be thankful they didn’t feature him in their swimsuit edition.". . .

Biden jokes; Biden, Biden, Biden; The Human Gaffe Machine


Google’s censorship of jokes about Biden (Anything by Stephen Colbert is just fine)

"Someone had shared their grandma’s funny joke about Joe Biden, and after passing it along, a friend asked me to “find me another”.

"A Google search for “Biden jokes” results in many pages of “Biden jokes about this or that in recent presser” type headlines. Pretty much no jokes “about” Biden."

. . .

"Doing a search for “Biden jokes” on DuckDuckGo provided a wonderful assortment of jokes about Biden, as well as about Trump.

"It appears that this whole censorship and steering opinion thing runs much deeper and more subtly than most people, including myself, would likely have thought.

"The joke, by the way, was “Did you hear that Joe Biden had to visit the gastro specialist?... He couldn’t stop Putin.' ”

Biden, the gaffe machine - American Thinker  
The present dilemma over the use of language now stems from the recent utterances of the leader of the world’s superpower. It is recognized in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere, that President Joe Biden has a tendency on occasions to misstate his ideas and policies. Officials in the White House have had to clarify his injudicious statements on a number of issues: on U.S.  troops based in Poland going into Ukraine; the suggestion that a “minor incursion” by Russia  into Ukrainian territory might be acceptable, a suggestion refuted by  President Zelensky  there are no minor incursions; the nature of  U.S. responses “in kind” to the use of chemical weapons by Russia; uncertain  relations with NATO; and now on regime change in Moscow. 

Column: The Unanimously Liberal Tilt of the 'Fact Checkers'

 Column: The Unanimously Liberal Tilt of the 'Fact Checkers' | Newsbusters   "Now that the Ketanji Brown Jackson hearings are complete, we have collected another fascinating exhibit of the leftist tilt of “independent fact checkers.” Just try and find a single fact check on anything Judge Jackson said. Try and find a single evaluation of any statement by a Democratic politician touting Jackson – from Biden and Dick Durbin on down.

"Checking liberals and Democrats is apparently not listed among their job duties.

On March 28, White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates addressed Judge Jackson’s qualifications. Bates claimed what speaks to the strength of her public record “is the multitude of fact-checks from the press, from retired judges, and from former prosecutors who have dismantled attacks brought by a small group of GOP senators.”

" 'Dismantling” Republican critiques is the job of the Fact Check community? That’s what it looks like.

"Bates applauded the nation’s largest Democrat rags for their efforts. He touted the Washington Post Fact Checker article by Glenn Kessler titled “These Trump Judges Failed Hawley’s Sentencing Test for Jackson.” He also cited New York Times fact-checker Linda Qiu’s article, titled “Critics of Jackson’s Child Sex Abuse Sentences Backed Judges with Similar Records.”

"The Biden press aide correctly noted “This was all on top of a raft of other fact checks already establishing that the basis of these criticisms was dishonest.” Democrats can float on a raft of “fact checks” attempting to censor or downgrade the reach of Republicans.

"The targeting tilt was unanimous.". . .

Can Trump Win His Lawsuit Against Hillary Clinton And The DNC For Their Russia Collusion Lies?

 The Federalist

Former President Trump’s lawyers allege a total of 16 separate counts, ranging from racketeering claims to state tort claims.


"Last week, former President Donald Trump filed a sprawling lawsuit against Hillary Clinton and the other main players responsible for the Russia collusion hoax. Here’s your lawsplainer for Trump v. Clinton, et. al.

First, the Facts

"The 103-page complaint filed in a Florida federal court on Thursday begins with a synopsis of the Democratic plot to frame Trump as a Russian asset, spurring the Crossfire Hurricane investigation into his presidential campaign and later his administration. Among other things, the lawsuit highlights the Clinton campaign’s hiring of Perkins Coie, alleging the law firm “was tasked with spearheading the scheme to find — or fabricate — proof of a sinister link between Donald J. Trump and Russia.”

"According to the lawsuit, Perkins Coie lawyers Marc Elias and Michael Sussmann enlisted others, including the investigative firm of Fusion GPS and its co-founders, Peter Fritsch and Glenn Simpson, and “Neustar, Inc., an information technology company, and one of its top executives, Rodney Joffe.” The complaint then detailed Fusion GPS’s hiring of Christopher Steele, the principal and founder of Orbis Ltd., and Steele’s use of Igor Danchenko as a primary sub-source for the fraudulent Steele dossier that the defendants fed to the FBI and the media to craft the Russia-collusion narrative.". . .

Sadly, though, Trump may in the end join Svetlana Lokhova and Alfa Bank as victims of Spygate for whom the legal system provided no relief. There is still hope for justice for Carter Page, though.

Hollywood Slapstick has whole 'nuther meaning now

 Was The Slap Staged? Does It Matter? (  "Social media won’t let The Slap, Will Smith’s scowl-inducing violent outburst over comedian Chris Rock’s joke about Smith’s wife’s shaved head, slough off into the memory hole.

"And for good reason. The Slap wasn’t just a notable pop culture moment, one which got America talking about the Oscars after years and years of declining interest and audiences. It was a cultural moment as well, one which said volumes about the current state of marriage and masculinity in America.

"There is a great deal of speculation out there indicating that the flagging viability of the Oscars and other celebrity awards shows in the public eye was a key motivator for The Slap being a staged event. Here’s how that theory plays out… 

. . ."It remains to be seen whether any damage was done to Smith’s career. The smart money says “of course not.” He’s likely more bankable now than he was before.

"Because standards are nonexistent in Hollywood. In Hollywood, pedophiles make movies for children, the casting couch applies to both sexes, Chinese Communist Party and Mexican drug cartel money bankrolls woke, anti-American films and the freedom of expression is met with cancellation and, now, violence.

"The Slap was shocking. It wasn’t surprising. Staged or not, it’s the logical terminal after a long flight from the cultural greatness Hollywood used to represent to the moral fiasco it surely is now."

The Will Smith–Chris Rock Spectacle and the Sad State of American Comedy - The American Spectator

Jimmy Kimmel Nails Will Smith for Laughing at Chris Rock’s Joke Before Smacking Him (  . . .“Even Kanye was like, you went on stage and did WHAT at an award show?” Kimmel joked. The “weirdest part,” he explained, was that Smith could be seen laughing at Rock’s joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s lack of hair and only decided he’d “better do something” when he looked over and realized she “wasn’t amused.”

“ 'Nobody could have predicted that the most controversial movie of 2022 would be G.I. Jane, but it was,” he added. Kimmel went on to praise Rock for not even flinching after Smith hit him, joking, “I would have been crying so hard.' ”. . .


Out of that list of the previous shows, the only one I’d be interest in seeing host again is Rock, and I would have said the same before the incident last night. I imagine they don’t want NBC stars but SNL usually has people I wouldn’t mind tuning it for, but other than that, I can’t think of any reason I’ll ever watch again. Not having Smith leave last night after hitting someone on stage is a miraculous failure on the Academy’s part. Everyone on the board should resign.

Audience Applauds as Colbert Says Fox News’ Peter Doocy Should Be Slapped

As previously stated in the TW, I have long considered Colbert a weasel. May I assume he and the ladies of "The View" have an applause sign for the audience? TD

Breitbart  "Liberal pundit Stephen Colbert, who also hosts a comedy show, joked on Tuesday night that Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy should be slapped the way actor Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock at the Oscars.

WATCH: Colbert Suggests Fox Reporter Get Slapped For Asking Biden About Chemical Weapons | The Daily Wire  . . ."On Tuesday night, apparently referencing Will Smith’s slap of Chris Rock at the Oscars Sunday night, late night host Stephen Colbert, in his usual snide fashion, mocked Fox News reporter Peter Doocy and suggested he be slapped for simply asking President Biden what he meant when he said that the U.S. would respond “in kind” to any use of chemical weapons by Russia in Ukraine.

Colbert started by mocking Doocy as resembling a high school kid “who wears a suit to gym class,” as he sniped, “Yesterday, President Biden held a press conference. And he was asked a ridiculous question by a ridiculous man, Fox News reporter and that one kid in high school who wears a suit to gym class, Peter Doocy.”

He instructed that the video be played in what he believed was a suave manner: “Jimmy, drop the deuce. “

The video ahowed Doocy asking, “You said that chemical weapon use by Russia would trigger a response in kind.”. . .

Colbert: Biden Should Slap Peter Doocy Like Will Smith Slapped Chris Rock   "CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert (D-N.Y.) certainly knows his audience. On Tuesday's show, he mocked Fox's Peter Doocy for asking President Biden a question, and suggested that he would like Biden to slap Doocy in the face, like Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars. The crowd loved it. No one expects Jim Acosta to suggest that will lead to violence and even death of reporters."  
"As our Briefing Expert Curtis Houck noted, Doocy was one of many White House reporters to ask Biden about his walked-back remarks about Putin being removed from power and other gaffes. Doocy here was obviously suggesting to Biden that telling Putin he would respond "in kind" to a chemical attack sounds like he would respond with a chemical counter-attack.

Colbert mocked Doocy as wanting all of our national-security secrets: "Uh, Peter Doocy, Fox News. I've got two more questions. First, what are the exact locations of all of America's troops? And can you give me the nuclear launch codes? Just tell me, is one of them a four?". . . 

. . ."Colbert makes his show for Democrats, so naturally back in 2018, Colbert welcomed CNN yeller Jim Acosta on his show to honor him for being a brave member of the "enemies of the people.' ". . .
