Cheers and Jeers: Rum and Resistance FRIDAY!


Late Night Snark: Oh, He Stepped In It Now edition

Israel was the source of the intelligence Trump gave to the Russians. And oopsa shalom—Trump is scheduled to visit Israel next week. That is really going to be one awkward state dinner. ‘Mr. President, can you please pass the hummus, or would you prefer to pass it directly to Russia?'”

—Stephen Colbert

“A new Gallup poll finds that President Trump’s approval rating has dropped to 38 percent. You know it’s bad when your approval ratings reach the numbers where you get concerned your phone is going to die.”

—Seth Meyers

“After the Comey [firing] news was made public, White House press secretary Sean Spicer tried to evade reporters by ducking into some bushes. Which is weird because diving into bushes without warning is usually his boss’s thing.”

—Colin Jost

“This president has wiped his ass with the Constitution so many times the National Archives started leaving passive-aggressive notes asking him to chip in for toilet paper.”

—Samantha Bee

“It’s honestly incredible to watch a man [Paul Ryan] who spends 90 minutes every morning working out refuse to show any strength whatsoever. Apparently no part of P-90X targets the backbone.”

—John Oliver

And three years ago this week:

“A British ice cream maker has created a new flavor of ice cream that mixes champagne and Viagra. Perfect for anyone who wants to eat something that tastes like Donald Trump’s burps.”

—SNL’s Cecily Strong
