Trevor Noah Calls Out ‘Hypocrite’ Democratic Politicians for Breaking COVID Rules
Comedy CentralOn Thursday night, The Daily Show host Trevor Noah took aim at an unlikely target: Democratic politicians.You see, a number of Dem politicians of late have been caught telling their constituents to stay inside and avoid large gatherings while ignoring those rules themselves. Among the offending Dems were San Francisco Mayor London Breed, who attended a group dinner at the swanky restaurant French Laundry; California Governor Gavin Newsom, who was among a group of 12 people dining at French Laundry; and Austin Mayor Steve Adler, who made a video cautioning his fellow Austinites to “stay inside”—but recorded it from a vacation timeshare in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.“Oh man, come on! What is it with these Democrats?” asked Noah, before mimicking Adler’s message to the public: “This is your mayor here, telling you to stay home, and stay safe. Do the right thing… All my boys in the pool know what I’m talking about! Say what’s up, everybody!”Read more at The Daily Beast.

Jimmy Kimmel Brutally Mocks Rudy Giuliani’s Star ‘Witness’ Melissa Carone
ABCTwitter spent most of the day on Thursday trying to predict which Saturday Night Live cast member would portray the latest unbelievable election “witness” to emerge from Rudy Giuliani’s “hearings.” The consensus seemed to be Kate McKinnon, but she would likely have trouble playing both Giuliani and Melissa Carone.Either way, it was Jimmy Kimmel who got the first late-night crack at Carone during his monologue Thursday night.“Cousin Rudy is at it again,” the host said. “There is some crazy stuff going on right now that most people probably aren’t even aware of. The nuttiest of the nutty Trump nuts are showing up to what they’re calling ‘election hearings’ and all the looneys are coming out of the bin.”Read more at The Daily Beast.

Ex-Presidents Can Get Intel Briefings. Trump Shouldn’t.
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyAs a courtesy, former presidents are typically assured continued access to the country’s secrets when they request it. But Donald Trump’s personal debt ($400 million) and his proclivity to share secrets with foreign adversaries make him a security risk. As a private citizen, he could never qualify for the security clearance that was conferred upon him as president.The decision to pull the plug falls to the new president. Biden shouldn’t hesitate to cut him off in a New York minute. The guy is a charlatan and a con man, and he’ll monetize every morsel of information he can get his hands on, national security be damned.Under the statutes governing national security, the former president would have no legal course to challenge the decision of Joe Biden or any future president should they decide to withhold intelligence, says Dakota Rudesill, associate professor at Ohio State University’s College of Law. “The powers of the president depart completely from former presidents when they leave office,” Rudesill says. “Access to classified information is a privilege, not a right.”Read more at The Daily Beast.
