    I would love to see Seth moderate an actual Democratic debate.

    Heck, most of the more politically charged hosts could probably do a great job. Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, and Jon Stewart, have all shown when it comes down to it, they can be serious on subject matter as much as any news pundit.

    And I'd take Conan or either Jimmy, over f'n Chuck Todd. I don't mind Chuck so much in a one-on-one interview situation, but he was fucking godawful in the debates, and should not be invited back again.

    "Who is the geopolitical threat to the United States?" should not, and cannot be answered with one word, and is frankly a disservice to the candidates to ask.

    Fuck off, Chuckles. The point of a debate should be to EXPAND the public's knowledge of a candidate's position on complex subjects. Not shrink it. It's hard enough with the stupid debate rules as they are.

    I would take Lindsay Graham as the moderator of a Democratic debate over Chuck Todd.

    Herbert Hoover got 40% of the vote in 1932. Friendly reminder.

    "Police in Utah recently responded to a report of a burglary in progress and instead found a turkey had broken through a window. Which just proves that turkey burglars aren't as good as regular burglars."

    It took me a few seconds but then I started laughing my ass off. Good job to whoever came up with that joke on Seth Meyers.

    Nobody likes me but that's okay. I'm used to it.

    But at the same time he doesn't address at all that the constitution doesn't require the senate to act on articles of impeachment nor does it have an answer for more than 1/3 of the senate being comprised of craven assholes.

    Shit, I was going to run a test and just ran a Google Image Search for "presidential seal" but EVERY result is this situation / comparisons.

    Edit - But yeah maybe someone just GIS'd it prior to this news breaking and put it in the presentation without thinking about it.

    Nope, not what happened. The guy who made the seal said it was definitely on purpose in an AMA on reddit. You can't even find the thing accidentally on your own, s'what he said.

    There’s a correlation though. Trump attracts people that are either like him or sycophants willing to suck up, very few in that circle seem detail oriented IMO.

    I find it mostly humorous that none of the dozens of staff and protection around the President noticed it. I'm willing to bet some of the Secret Service did, but let it slide.

    SCOTUS takes over the Senate when the President is the one facing impeachment. And while John Roberts might be a partisan hack, he's a partisan hack who makes the effort to not look like one.

    So shout outs to Seth Meyers; he had Hunter Schafer on, a trans actor who really has only just gotten started in acting in TV with this show Euphoria (I know nothing about it). He just... interviewed her and had fun. There was no making-a-spectacle of her being trans and such. People still put too much of a focus on that when it comes to trans actors, often to the point that it's all they interview them about, and he didn't do that whatsoever.

    Hey so, prisons in America suck complete and total ass. Specifically prison labor. Boy, Kamala Harris, you sure can fuck right off for chasing to fuel this shit. California is specifically covered in this episode.

    This thread is not an extension of the primary thread. By all means discuss the video, but I don't believe Harris is named in it for her "chasing to fuel this shit", whatever that means, so it kinda feels like you're dragging her into it to rant about her primary campaign.

    I had no idea the Guinness Book of World Records operated as it did. They've been cozying up to authoritarians and corporations to provide promotion via made-up bullshit records in exchange for a fuck-load of money.

    I was going to be okay with Oliver just highlighting a nutjob being nutty but when it became a piece putting GWR on blast it got even better.

    Edit - Oh hey they actually complained about the piece on the internet. Y'know, the biggest mistake any organization can do about a comedy driven show.

    I was about 8 minutes into the segment when I opened this thread, and this post made me go WTF. Especially the following post linking to the video.

    I was not disappointed. well... I was disappointed in Guiness, but I had a grin on my face for the last few minutes.
