    President Trump Impeached | The Daily Show

    Impeachment. It’s when America moves its president to the spam folder. After 85 days of inquiries and debates, today was finally the big day. So let’s see how it all went down in another installment of the Magical, Wonderful Road to Impeachment. -(cheering and applause) -SINGERS (singing): It’s probably presidential harassment. Ever since the impeachment inquiry began back in September, there have been many days that have felt historic: the announcement, the testimonies, the day that Trump and Giuliani accidentally switched dentures and talked like each other the whole day. But as historic as those days were, today was the most historic of all. STEPHANOPOULOS: This Wednesday will long be…

    A Crime You Admit To… Is Still a Crime – Between the Scenes | The Daily Show

    – I will say, this is probably one of the more interesting aspects of every single Trump scandal is that unlike most politician’s scandals, Trump’s scandals play out both in like a clandestine way and in a very open way. And that confuses journalists and media I’ve noticed because a lot of people fall into the trap of being like, “Yeah, but he said it in public, “so does that mean it’s wrong?” It’s like, “Yeah.” Just because you say your crime in public doesn’t mean that it’s no longer a crime. That’s not how it works, it’s just we’re used to people who have levels of shame and so…
