    I hate to lead on a negative note. But Steven has no skills whatsoever. Slamming political opponents should not be a score. I grew up in the 80s and 90s when late night was actually funny. This dude is full of nothing but negative slams. Too bad for CBS. How dare he even say y’all. This man and a flannel represents nothing of America and he has nothing funny to amusing to say.

    for the love of God, just put Part 1 on the videos titles.. it is so annoying having to open blindly the videos in order to get the full interview. When there is 3 videos or more is hell.

    I’m not sure why you they all act so surprised by Republicans’ actions. I’m not American but it’s still seems pretty clear why they are doing this. It’s because of how American politics work. And laziness and selfishness. It’s not really about what’s good for the Party in the battleground seats but what is happening in the firmly Republican ones because there Trump holds enough of the voting block to dictate the rules.

    It’s true most of those Republicans are in the safely Republican districts where Democrats are never going to win. But that doesn’t mean they seats of those guys are safe. Only the party is. The individual politicians can be unseated during primary by anyone saying they are Republican. And since the sane people who have lives tend to not vote in primaries the voices who do skew towards those angry enough to get out and vote – and right now that’s Trump supporters. It’s please them or be replaced by QAnnons. And in main election the district is going to vote Republican anyway no matter how crazy the candidate is.

    Sure they could try to go and convince the moderates to come vote in primaries but it would require a Stacy Abrams-like tactics. And that’s a lot of work. It’s easier to just lie and swallow whatever humiliation Trump demands.

    Of course this is not just Republican thing. The Democrats who want more safety net changes did the same thing in very blue areas which is why AOC is in Congress and it pushed the party left. It’s a one way you can make your voice heard in the crazy American voting system. But for Republican it means detachment from reality, lies and racism are the only options to make it. They are never going to admit the truth unless they plan to retire.

    Seriously thinking Documentary Now should do an episode just on the Cyber Ninja story and the Arizona #fraudit, and play it completely straight. I have a feeling nobody would know that the whole thing was completely real instead of hilariously fake. This whole thing seems suspiciously like some kind of mockumentary or a Borat-style prank!

    It’s so funny (and frustrating) to watch these seemingly rationale adults discussing how the public won’t vote for the GQP candidates. It doesn’t matter, people! They are DONE with democracy. Everything is projection with the GQP. They’re screaming about election fraud because they’re doing it and planning to rig more. They don’t give a 💩 about votes. They don’t need them to “win”.

    I agree with Jake – there is no reason whatsoever to have guests who actively support the election fraud lie or the whitewashing of the 1/6 insurrection riot. If they’ll lie about these essential facts in our democracy, *what won’t they lie about?* Reminds me of the days when Kellyanne Conway was a regular – I always wondered why she was such a frequent guest on legitimate media outlets. Hosts are finally accepting that it only makes the problem worse to give air-time to these scumbags.

    I don’t think this is about Trump – much. The GOP is a minority party that needs to suppress votes to hold onto power, and the Big Lie is giving them a great excuse to do that. That’s the long game. Sure, keeping Trump happy MIGHT be good short term.

    Gee, 80% of the active mob in DC were active military, police and federal officers. That is the WHOPPER of the media SECRET! – Supporters of Reality Winner, a National Security Agency whistleblower who leaked classified information about Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, petitioned Donald Trump on Monday for her early release from prison. Alison Grinter, an attorney representing the former US air force intelligence specialist, announced at a press conference in Dallas that she had submitted 4,500 letters of support to the federal office of the pardon attorney, the division of the Department of Justice that advises the US president on executive clemency decisions. Winner was sentenced to five years and three months in August 2018 after admitting breaching the espionage act by passing top secret documents to an investigative news website about the Russian hacking of voting software and its efforts to disrupt dozens of local election systems ahead of the 2016 election.

    “Our country was attacked by a hostile foreign power,” The Intercept quoted Grinter as saying at the press conference.

    “Our national healing process cannot begin until we forgive our truth tellers and begin the job of rebuilding what was taken from us: election security, accountability for those who endeavor to undermine our democracy; and safeguarding the American right to government by and for the people. None of this can begin in earnest while we are still punishing those who tell us the truth.”

    The petition states of Winner, 28: “Her continued incarceration is costly, unnecessary to protect the public, burdensome to her health and wellbeing, and not commensurate with the severity of her offense.”

    Trump called Winner’s sentence “unfair” in an August 2018 tweet attacking then-attorney general Jeff Sessions, describing her actions as “small potatoes” compared to what he alleged his 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton had done with classified information while she was secretary of state during the administration of Barack Obama.

    A three-year state department investigation cleared Clinton of any wrongdoing in October 2019.

    Winner said of Trump in a phone interview with CBS News from Georgia’s Lincoln county jail in 2018 that she “can’t thank him enough” for the tweet, which she said confirmed her lawyers’ view that the sentence was unfair.

    The Department of Justice did not immediately return a request for comment from the Guardian on Monday.
