    S06.E09: Mueller Report

    If this becomes a pay-per-view event, I'm forkin' over my hard earned cash to watch! As for impeaching Drumpf, the Democrats are in a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't situation. It's like they're playing Plinko from The Price Is Right. They may think they're lined up to land on impeachment, only to have the disc bounce around crazily and it lands on four more years for Drumpf. But I'm reading comments from some left leaning sites that are demanding Nancy Pelosi take up the case for impeachment, IMMEDIATLY! OR ELSE! Pelosi's in a bind right now, but I trust her savvy and acumen will carry the day.

    TDS 3.0: Season Four Talk

    OK, what the actual fuck was that with Ronny's hair? I was too distracted by that to notice anything else. I kept thinking it was going to jump off of his head. You know Trev, it's seems less of a Jussie Smolet type hoax and more likely the typical weapons grade stupid that is Louie Gohmert.

    Small Talk: Where Political Junkies Convene

    Not that I doubt that, it does sound like something Bill would do. But is there any proof, recorded or otherwise of him saying that?
  4. If Bill wants to be taken seriously by liberals and progressives alike, he needs to realize that there's many things that matter to the left, and that he needs to quit being a cherry picking asshole and stop shaming and browbeating them over issues he doesn't give a fuck about, like transgender rights (or, issues he cares about but they don't, like comic book fans and the culture of it). You'd think he'd be a little bit understanding about George Clooney's boycott attempts directed towards the sultan of Brunei. Hell, it's an Islamic nation with two thirds the populace practicing it, you'd think it would be a slam dunk for him to be pissed about executing people for being gay because of religion. Trevor Noah commended Clooney's efforts last night on The Daily Show. And if Bill can't bring himself up to do that, then he should go back on the road and stick to comedy.
  5. I watched wrestling a lot in the mid to late 80s. Hogan, Piper, Savage were among the big stars of that era. Gawd, the Intercontinental title match at Wrestlemania 3, between Randy Savage and Ricky Steamboat, went down as one of the greatest matches in pro wrestling history. I stopped watching it in the early 90s, but found myself drawn back into it with WWF's "Attitude" era with Austin, the Rock, and Foley. The Hell in a Cell match at 1998 King of the Ring, between the Undertaker and Mick Foley, has to be seen to be believed. But by the early aughts, I stopped watching it again and have never looked back. And through it all, Vince McMahon has been controlling the WWF/WWE, ruling it with an iron fist. I always found him to be a sleazy, arrogant asshole, even when I first remembered him as the play by play announcer alongside the likes of Bruno Sammartino and Jesse Ventura. I give him credit, as was mentioned above, for taking on the role of corporate heel boss, against the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin. and putting himself through all kinds of abuse and humiliation from his wrestlers. Of course, that was done in order to keep his empire afloat as it was on the brink of collapsing late in 1997, a lot of it his own doing (google "Montreal Screwjob" to see why Brett Hart was so pissed with McMahon). But he is, has been, and always will be a sleazy arrogant asshole. And Ollie's piece on his empire shows us why. Will anything change because of it? I wouldn't hold my breath. It's been shown wrestlers can be replaced and interchanged with someone more hungry and more determined. That's why they're afraid to take time off. That's why there's been no effort to unionize them. That's why they technically can be called "independent contractors".
  6. Wouldn't surprise me the least if the entire episode was dedicated to the Mueller Report Barr Memo and the implications surrounding it.
  7. And, with all that is going on right now, Bill brought up and slammed George Clooney's attempts to boycott hotels operated by the sultan of Brunei because the sultan wants to execute gay people in his country. Why? Why is this so far up his ass? Is he trying to impress Sullivan and Cupp on his panel? Does he even realize he's sounding more and more like a right wing whiner everyday? Like pretty much everything on last night's show, Bill looked his usual bad. The word "socialism" has always been considered a four letter word used in America since most of its beginning. While people enjoy the benefits of socialism, from Social Security to driving on paved roads, for many, the word makes most people feel rather uneasy to becoming completely enraged. Opponents of socialism will continue to beat this drum - that socialism is bad - because its effects on the populace work, no matter how hard the likes of Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez try and convince them otherwise. Just look at the Affordable Care Act. people love the ACA but hate Obamacare, even though they're both the same thing.

    Kinda odd to see Trevor take a bagel and put it through hell like that. I doubt Jon would have done something like that. In fact, Trevor's treatment of that bagel was like Drumpf eating a pizza with a knife and fork. And we all know what Jon thought of THAT!

    And the way they presented that, with Roy in some form of panic mode trying to console himself, makes them look like idiots who haven't been paying close attention to the story and its details.

    TDS 3.0: Season Four Talk

    So basically, two years worth of work by Robert Mueller is handed over to new Attorney General William Barr, a guy who thinks going after a sitting president is ridiculous and was given the job by Drumpf because of it, then reduces it all down to a four page summary that says he sees NOOOOTHING, and Trevor just shrugs his shoulders and sighs and apologizes? FUCKING LAME ON YOUR PART, TREV!
  11. Bill's New Rules sermon shows us he's becoming more and more of a grumpy old man.

    And I'm with her. Running far away from it as humanly possible.

    S06.E05: Public Shaming

    And he'll definitely say something about the recent mass shootings in New Zealand, especially given how he likes to talk a lot about the country on his show.
  14. Sorry, but I don't have children of my own either, but I would never tell my sister how to raise her two boys. Bill talking about child raising is a lot like him talking about women's issues. He knows fuck all about it and comes out looking like an asshole.
  15. Because who knows better about how to raise kids than a misanthropic bachelor who doesn't want to get married or have children of his own. Someone on the panel really needs to tell Bill to Shut The Fuck Up about child rearing until he's experienced real parenting himself. Of course, Bill would probably make Bing Crosby look like a saint by comparison.
