Adam Ruins Everything: Why a Wall Won't Stop Immigration

Yeah, he's got one of those faces you want to slap when he disses a favorite sacred cow, here he is telling morons why building a border wall won't do squat about undocumented immigrants. Mentions deportation, too.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

Heavy on the budget and hilariously infuriating!

About that terrorist infested hell hole known as Sweden

Swedish police featured in Fox News segment: Filmmaker is a madman

Why were you interviewed?

”It was supposed to be about crime in high risk areas. Areas with high crime rates. There wasn’t any focus on migration or immigration”.

How did you react to the news segment?

”We don’t stand behind it. It shocked us. He has edited the answers. We were answering completely different questions in the interview. This is bad journalism.”Anders Göranzon continues: ”It feels like hell. The real questions should be shown along with our answers. We don’t own the rights to the film, but the end result is that we don’t want to talk to journalists after this. We can’t trust each other.”

Have you done anything to stop the news segment?

”We just saw it. What can we do? One thing is talking to you. The excerpt they showed doesn’t say anything, we answered a different question. We don’t stand behind what he says. He is a madman.”


Toilet Training the Cat

Stuart McLean has died and the Vinyl Cafe is now closed, but here is one of my favorite bits of his:

"Dave Cooks a Turkey" is also great.

RIP, Stuart and thanks for the laughs.

The guys at Cracked.com take on the Twit's Tweets

and rips him to silly shreds within 5 minutes. It's worse than we thought:

A man was arrested and "the situation is now contained", police said.

The incident happened at the Bourke St Mall, a busy shopping area, just before 14:00 (03:00 GMT).

Mr Bateson told reporters that police believe the driver "deliberately drove into the crowd".

For your delight and edification, with a PSA at the end

From the files of "gee, it sounded like a great idea,"

Because history repeats itself, I offer a look back at the last time

the world went completely bonkers from our friends at the BBC as a way to warn people who might not remember this bullshit a look at what we're likely in for: no talent music, wankers from Wharton making seven figure salaries on Wall Street and shoving their superiority into our faces, pretentiousness, bad hair, and probably a few riots here and there.

(Oh well, at least we missed Spit the Dog and Roland Rat)

David Cay Johnston Q&A on CSPAN

Note: Johnston is a Republican and thinks a lot of silly things, but his insights into Trump are spot on. Not on YouTube yet, so I can't link directly to the video. Here it is on CSPAN and it's well worth watching:


ETA: for those who don't know, he wrote "The Making of Donald Trump," which came out last summer and was not nice to Trump.
