Jimmy Kimmel on Trump: 'No president has ever lost one election so many times'
Late-night hosts return from Thanksgiving to newly certified election results in Arizona and Wisconsin, and a lame-duck Trump presidency
The president’s days in office are waning; on Monday,a win for Joe Biden, as Wisconsin wrapped up its recount that cost the Trump campaign $3m. The result? Biden picked up 87 more votes. “Money well spent,” Kimmel joked. “No president has ever lost one election so many times.”
Stephen ColbertStephen Colbertserved an extra helping of his interview with Barack Obama, with outtakes that didn’t air with the original package last week. In the multi-part sit-down, the 44th president and the Late Show host discussed, among many topics, what’s next for Joe Biden, the drone program under his administration, and the reflections woven into his memoir, A Promised Land.
The highly anticipated book, released last month, has already drawn unprecedented first-day sales crucial for independent booksellers decimated by the pandemic’s economic downturn. “How many times does this man need to save the economy?” joked Colbert. “He propped up the auto industry, now publishing, and next week he’s bringing back America’s shopping malls by getting his ears pierced at Claire’s.” headtopics.com
During the interview, asked by Colbert if there were aspects of the job (such as wearing a tie) that he’s glad to have left behind, Obama fondly remembered the wonk-ish parts of the presidency. “I found the work fascinating,” he said. “Even on my worst days, I found puzzling out these big, complicated, difficult issues, especially if you’re working with some great people, to be professionally really satisfying.”
“We found out from your successor that there’s a whole bunch of stuff you don’t actually have to do,” Colbert added. “Who knew?” said Obama.The former president, 59, also looked forward to a younger generation — that of his and Colbert’s children — in power. “They’re smarter than we were, they’re more sophisticated, they’re kinder, they’re environmentally more conscious,” he said. “They believed in stuff, as I write in the preface, that maybe we gave lip service to but didn’t always want to live out because it required some sacrifice. You see them living out their commitments in really powerful ways. But we have to be willing to give them the chance to remake institutions and change old habits.
“They make me optimistic, I just want to make sure that we don’t screw things up so bad that by the time they’re in charge it becomes that much harder.”Trevor Noah Read more: The Guardian »

Biggest loser ever realDonaldTrump TrumpLoser LMAO Its written in history, thats horrible Jimmy Kimmel is horrible “Never seen anything like it!” Is Melania's other Nan Grinchetta? Who hates Christmas trees? Or rose bushes?
realDonaldTrump Donald Trump is a back sore that never goes away. He is the boil on the ass of humanity. He is giving Hitler a run for his money. Trump apparently likes to see Loeffler and Perdue win, but his concern is his ego, his rejection of electoral realities, his sense of betrayal from those whom he expects to cheat on his behalf, and his eagerness to capitalize on his scam. If that depresses turnout, so be it.
Biden has lost his marbles he spent so long lying you should take note you journalists in the guardian After 4 years of the Obama's smooth transition, its remarkable peoples ability to be comfortable with their hypocritical self, not long ago being a hypocrite was something too bad to be, now its the upside down lefts comfort zone, ensuring that mental health is the next pandemic
Is Hunter in GITMO yet? A coward dies a thousand deaths Martial Law soon ;) What *will* these unfunny talk show hosts have to talk about when Trump is gone? If rich celebrities, athletes, talk show hosts, mainstream media, big tech, and virtue signaling corporations want your candidate to win, you are NOT the resistance.
No talk show host has ever lost their audience so many times.
