Comedy Central is breaking new ground by hiring a little known South African comedian to replace Jon Stewart, the burned-out host of the wildly popular “Daily Show”.
The debate rages on over the ‘Catcalls’ race-baiting video featuring an average looking woman who took a walk on the wild side of New York City wearing tight clothing — and then complained about the attention she received from black and Latino men. Comedy troupe Funny Or Die filmed a parody video in response to the self-centered, attention-seeking woman in the ‘catcalls’ video.
Hilarity ensues after the break:
After the break, Lil Meatball takes on the NCAA champions UConn Huskies men’s basketball team. The Huskies defeated the hapless University of Kentucky 60-54 last night.
NBC’s Saturday Night Live parodied the Obama administration’s
desperate attempts to sign up healthy young people for ObamaCare in advance of Monday’s deadline. SNL’s Obama was urged to wear Pharrell’s goofy hat; pose for a social media photo op with Kim Kardashian and Batkid; dance with the Pope; and kiss Justin Bieber (played by a female actress) on the lips.
Watch the hilarious video after the break.
President Obama’s approval ratings hit a low of 41% this week. His lowest approval rating ever was 38% in 2011. But not to be deterred by the public’s growing distrust of him, Obama appeared on an Internet show called Funny or Die hosted by actor/comedian Zach Galifinakis (“Hangover”).
Wearing his usual deadpan expression, Obama cracked jokes about his lame duck health care reform, ObamaCare. Apparently, the president thinks 4 million Americans losing their health insurance is funny.
First Lady Michelle Obama interrupted a White House interview between Miami Heat players Dwyane Wade, left, Ray Allen, center, and coach Eric Spoelstra by dunking on LeBron James. According to Global Grind, this skit on the post-game interview bomb made famous by Heat players was planned and executed by LeBron and the first lady to promote her staying fit and anti-obesity campaign. She got game! Can President Obama do that?
A new NYPD program is stirring more controversy than the policy that it was designed to replace. The New York Police Department’s “Stop-and-Kiss” program is an effort to tamp down the complaints of the NYPD’s controversial Stop-and-frisk program that critics say targets black and Hispanic men.
Critics are calling the NYPD’s Stop-and-Kiss program a violation of privacy. Thousands took to the streets earlier this week to protest the new program. The new policy allows officers to kiss anyone who they believe looks suspicious.
New Yorkers who complain that they have been stopped and kissed say the new policy is even more intrusive than the Stop-and-frisk policy.
