Nicole talk with UK Progressive's Dennis Campbell and his partner on the Three Muckrakers Podcast, Phil Parry, about the US presidential elections, the correlations with Brexit and other global crises. And journalist Sarah Jaffe returns to the show to discuss her first book, Necessary Trouble: Americans in Revolt. She'll be appearing at the Miami International Book Fair on Sunday Nov 20.
Geeking out over Elizabeth Warren again. Plus the Senator knows how to lay out the truth in a Mark Twainish manner. Everything to love. From the New York Times. Senator Elizabeth Warren Tells Trump: ‘Nasty Women Vote’ By MATT FLEGENHEIMER In introducing Hillary Clinton, the senator said, “We nasty women are going to march our nasty feet to cast our nasty votes” against Donald Trump. 'Well behaved women rarely make history' is one of the all-time shining common wisdom phrases that culturally scored and stuck. Every time I see some prime Warren barnstorming on the [...]
Yes, it’s time to steal a few more jokes from my father-in-law (F.I.L.). His blog posts range from political comedy to humorous commentary on pop culture. For those of you who might be new here, he used to write for Alan King, Milton Berle and Jonathan Winters, just to name a few. And all those Dean Martin Roasts, too: Don Rickles, Red Buttons, Phyllis Diller, Sammy Davis, Jr., etc. A tiny respite from all the frustrating events of the day: Last week "TRUMP vs. CLINTON 3," was held in Las Vegas. More than 71 million people watched and screamed at [...]
. Bless those that turn SNL into an easy access run at 3 a.m. when you've been a low energy hippie ... Anyone else who thinks this crew equals the 1970's classic casts, leave a nod. I'm feeling like it's progressives' happy reward at the end of a hard-slogged week in ye olde Trumpian Grade muck. . . . The pointed Jeff Danziger via Vermont's The Rutland Herald. Now. Because we can. The Cold Open. Tom Hanks?!?! Primo. Sitting Ovations. You forget what an incredible actor Tom Hanks truly is … [...]
(via www.cartoonistgroup.com) When I opened my Los Angeles Times today, I spotted a letter written by someone I knew when I was a teeny tiny kid. He grew up to be awfully smart, as you'll see below. Trump has made much of how "voter fraud" (which is virtually non-existent) will hand the ("rigged!!!") presidential election over to Hillary because... everyone, but everyone, is conspiring against Don-Don. Everyone. In the whole wide world. (Reality check: Voter suppression is a much bigger problem than voter fraud.) As so many do, my very informed, very cool childhood friend set the Ignoramus in Chief straight. Here [...]
Tomorrow is Media Bias Sunday! Or as I like to call it, Librul Media My Ass Sunday. Previously I kept a running tally of all things unfair, unbalanced for years via the infamous TPC Media Bias Sunday Talk scoreboard. Now the series is a regular feature at NicoleSandler.com. No matter who’s in the White House or runs Congress, the corporate media nearly always has more GOP guests appearing on Sunday talk shows than Democratic guests. We're coming down to the election day wire. Don-Don Trump was his usual infantile, nasty, lying, ignorant, bigoted self while Hillary Clinton was still dealing with pesky email issues while pulling [...]
Apologies for the titillating title, so to speak, but if you watched the Al Smith Dinner last night, you couldn't miss them. Now that that's out of the way... Jason Leopold was my guest today on the show. He's been making me as proud as ever to be his friend as I read and watch his work as an investigative correspondent for Vice News and the new nightly HBO show Vice News Tonight. Today, we discussed his being labeled a "FOIA Terrorist" by the government because of his expert use of the Freedom of Information Act to access information otherwise [...]
Nicole Sandler lets the candidates do the talking as one did well and the other continues to scorch the earth at the annual Al Smith Dinner in this edition of "What's News?"
What a night last night, huh? Keith Olbermann and I had the same thought at the same moment... that Donald Trump's campaign ended the moment he said he wouldn't commit to accepting the official election returns. Last night: subverts our elections. Today: jokes about it. My message to @realDonaldTrump: Burn In Hell. pic.twitter.com/q2gvPzYOLf — Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) October 20, 2016 Just don't get cocky or complacent about it as we still have to go out and vote. But, as Howie Klein said on the show today, he saw that moment in the debate last night as the opening for the [...]
