    Subway Coronavirus Precautions, Dinosaur DNA, and Twitter’s Fleets Feature | The Daily Show

    The coronavirus. The disease is now officially in 85 countries, and it has over 95,000 confirmed cases. And it’s the reason even white people have switched to the fist bump. “And explode.” Now, here in New York, because the city is so crowded, the risk of coronavirus is especially dangerous. Because, you see, if corona can make it here, it can make it anywhere. (laughter) And that’s why city officials are taking action. NEWSWOMAN: The MTA stepping up its cleaning efforts to prevent the spread of the coronavirus on public transit.

Her favorite position is the one where she’s on top, -and he’s not in the room. -(laughter) Now, you might be wondering how would a country full of brown people react to a visit from Donald Trump?

    Trump Goes Full Psycho On Twitter Over The Weekend

    Donald Trump was hit with a barrage of really, really bad news this past weekend, further implicating him in criminal activity, and in case you thought Donald Trump was handling it all in stride, might I basically direct you to Donald Trump’s Twitter feed. On Sunday, the president appeared to lose what little bit of his mind he had left attacking everyone and every thing that he could possibly think of. One of the first tweets he sent out that day was apparently a threat against representative Adam Schiff. When Donald Trump tweeted out shifty, Adam Schiff is a corrupt politician and probably a very sick man. He has not…

    Republican Billionaire Wants To Oust Twitter CEO After Buying Large Part Of The Company

    Last week, a group called Elliott Management bought a huge share of Twitter. Elliott Management, hedge fund, came in, spent a lot of money investing into Twitter so that they could gain almost a controlling share of the shares of Twitter. And part of the reason they did this is because they want to oust the CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey. So, who is Elliot Management hedge fund? Well that’s the hedge fund owned by billionaire Republican donor, Paul Singer and Mr. Singer and his group want to get rid of Jack Dorsey who only owns 2% of his own company now. So it’s kind of troubling, right? It looks…

    Trump Family Short-Circuits on Twitter Over Impeachment Trial

    So we talked about the impeachment news, the house sending impeachment articles to the Senate. They’ve approved seven impeachment managers who will be effectively serving as prosecutors during the impeachment trial. I believe with a 99% degree of confidence that an acquittal for Donald Trump is what is awaiting us at the end of this trial. This has made Donald Trump short circuit. He immediately blew a gasket and started tweeting nonsense yesterday. Let’s look at what happened as he learned that Democrats were indeed moving forward and sending articles of impeachment to the Senate, which remember, he claimed to want initially when he was impeached in the house, and…
