Hillary Clinton Appears on Jimmy Kimmel Live

After a two-week Olympics hiatus, late night television is finally back! Jimmy Kimmel had the big get on Monday, as Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Jimmy Kimmel doesn’t come up very often in the discussion of political comedy in late night, but he’s sneakily one of the best interviewers of politicians out there. He’s good at walking the line between keeping things light (and making the candidates look fun-loving) and asking some real questions (which they may or may not want to answer).  Continue reading

Seth Meyers on the Bernie or Bust Movement

Sarah Silverman tells Bernie-or-Bust People: ‘You’re Being Ridiculous’

The Democratic National Convention kicked off last night in Philadelphia and it was mostly a well-organized affair. High-ranking politicians and Democratic supporters came out and gave well-prepared speeches that definitely weren’t plagiarized. But there was one major hiccup, which was the way that some Bernie Sanders supporters continually heckled the speakers whenever voting for Hillary Clinton was brought up. The DNC knew that there would be angry Bernie delegates present, and so they made sure to include several Bernie supporters in the opening day’s speaker list, including Bernie himself, Elizabeth Warren, and comedian Sarah Silverman. Sarah Silverman had been a vocal Bernie supporter, but when Hillary won the nomination, she loudly proclaimed (on Twitter) that she would nevertheless support Hillary. Continue reading

Jimmy Fallon Impersonates Donald Trump and Interviews Hillary Clinton

 

Well, here you go. This is the clip from last night’s Tonight Show that everyone is going to be sharing like crazy. If we sound less than enthusiastic about it, it’s just because we think that the quality of Jimmy Fallon’s Donald Trump impression has been a little bit overblown and, honestly, it seems like he’s breaking it out a bit too often these days (or maybe we’re just feeling Trump fatigue). But hey, it’s clearly popular and if there’s one thing Jimmy Fallon does well, it’s giving the people what they want.

We will say this though Continue reading
