Lewis Black"I did a lot of hallucinogens to prep for any eventual reality & I never saw this coming"



Amazingly, it’s been 20 years since Stephen Colbert and Lewis Black started working together on The Daily Show. Because of their shared history, it did not take much prompting for Colbert to get Black to share his true feelings about President Donald Trump’s disastrous travel ban Monday night.

“I have seen you angry through four presidential administrations,” Colbert said. “Is there anything unique about your present level of anger with the Trump administration?”

“I did a lot of hallucinogens when I was younger in order to prepare me for any eventual reality, and I never saw this one coming,” Black replied to wild applause from the audience.

On Trump’s decision to follow through on his so-called “Muslim ban,” he added, “The amount of energy it must take for these people to turn bullshit and insanity and meanness and make it look reasonable, how do you do it?” He then suggested that Colbert pixelate his face and disguise his voice because, “I don’t want that big baby yelling at me.”

Trump: "Piss on it"

Vermont's republican governor (gulp) has come out against Trump's immigration edict.

With his announcement Monday night, Scott becomes one of the highest-profile Republicans in the country to join the legal fight against efforts by President Donald Trump to restrict the flow of refugees and other immigrants into the United States.

“I understand public safety is a primary concern of any government. It’s primary concern of mine as well,” Scott told VPR Tuesday morning. “But I believe these executive orders extend beyond that concern. It’s overreach. And we all have a great fear of terrorists … entering our country. But I think this is the wrong way to go about it.”

Alt-Truth: Fact check: White House claims 109 affected by travel ban - it's more like 90,000

https://twitter.com/chicagotribune/status/826295162431234050

"Only 109 people out of 325,000 were detained and held for questioning." - President Donald Trump, tweet, Jan, 30, 2017

---


"Remember we're talking about a universe of 109 people. There were 325,000 people that came into this country over a 24 hour period from another country. 109 of them were stopped for additional screening." - White House press secretary Sean Spicer, press briefing, Jan. 30, 2017



***********

The "109" number is old, and rather dubious. For instance, it does not reflect how many people were prevented from even boarding a plane. According to the Department of Homeland Security, 348 people were denied boarding from the issuance of the executive order on Friday through 6 p.m. on Sunday.
..................

But all of these numbers fail to provide the full picture. The real number is about 90,000.

Here's the breakdown by country:

Iran: 34,819 nonimmigrant visas, 7,179 immigrant visas

Iraq: 13,335 nonimmigrant visas, 2,010 immigrant visas

Syria: 9,770 nonimmigrant visas, 1,901 immigrant visas

Sudan: 5,039 nonimmigrant visas, 1,642 immigrant visas

Yemen: 4,472 nonimmigrant visas, 3,143 immigrant visas

Libya: 3,303 nonimmigrant visa, 272 immigrant visas

Somalia: 399 nonimmigrant visas, 1,078 immigrant visas
