In MSNBC Interview, Joe Biden Does Not Rule Out 2020 Presidential Run

Joe Biden, who was President Obama’s vice president for eight years, said Obama used to often ask him during his second term what would motivate him to run for president. Rev. Al Sharpton raised the same question during a lengthy sit-down with Biden that aired this morning on MSNBC’s Politics Nation. “I’m really hoping some other folks step up,” Biden demurred. “I think we have some really good people.” When Sharpton pressed it, though, he clarified that he was not ruling…

‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ Writers Discover the Secret to Surviving Trump’s America: Fist Fights (Video)

‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ Writers Discover the Secret to Surviving Trump’s America: Fist Fights (Video)
Tuesday night on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” we got a new edition of the show’s excellent recurring segment “Point, Counterpoint,” in which the show’s writers Amber Ruffin and Ally Hord appear to discuss a series of current topics.

The joke of the bit is that Hord will discuss the topics at hand in a very serious manner while Ruffin will then take whatever the last thing Hord said as an excuse to go off on a hilarious non-sequitor. And this time, the debate ended in a joyful display of violence in which Hord and Ruffin got to bond over beating down a mannequin dressed like Meyers.

“It seems that every day that someone within Trump’s world resigns or is fired,” Meyers said to start off the bit. “Is this a sign of a house in chaos or that President Trump finally seems to know the kind of team he needs? Ally?”

“You’re giving him too much credit,” Hord replied. “All this turnover isn’t calculated. It’s the tantrums of a man-child. It’s like if a middle school bully tried to run a PTA meeting. Trump is nothing but a big, fat baby.”

And then Ruffin took the whole thing in a completely different direction.

“I love, big, fat babies. you see one and you ask, ‘how did you get so fat if all you eat is milk, little baby?’ But they don’t answer because they’re a baby. And when they’re real fat you get to put your finger on their chin and go ‘Hey, hey, hey, it’s Fat Albert.’ It’s the cutest,” Ruffin said.

For the second topic, Hord said that Trump’s transgender military ban was just another one of “Trump’s distracting stunts,” to which Ruffin replied that she absolutely loves cool stunts in movies. Which led to the climax of the segment.

“After Joe Biden said in a speech he would have beat Trump up in high school, Trump tweeted that if they did fight, Biden would have gone down hard and fast while crying ahead of the midterms. Is this the sort of leadership we need from either party? Ally?” Meyers asked.

“It’s like we’ve completely forgotten how a leader is supposed to act,” Hord said. “This country has gone insane. I’ve lost all hope.”

“I know what would make you feel better,” Ruffin replied

“I’m not giving you a hug,” Hord declared stubbornly

“Oh. Well, then, how about a big stunt sequence?” Ruffin asked. Hord liked the idea, and the two immediately began a dramatic fight on stage that eventually involved Hord smashing a vase over Ruffin’s head, Ruffin kicking Hord through a wall, and the two of them teaming up on a mannequin dressed up like Meyers.

“Take a closer look at this, bitch,” Ruffin said as they threw the mannequin over Meyers’ desk.

The conflict ended with Ruffin pinning Hord’s arm behind her back until she finally agreed to a hug.

The Cast of Parks and Rec Is Roasting the NRA For Using a Leslie Knope Gif

  • BuzzSugar
Parks and Recreation's Leslie Knope is a timeless icon for many reasons, her politics being one. She loves Joe Biden even more than her own husband and works tirelessly through the show's seven seasons to improve the world around her - even when it means butting heads with far-right townsfolk in Pawnee, In, or depriving the town of another gluttonous guilty pleasure like Paunch Burger. All of this is to say Leslie Knope would definitely not be on board with the NRA, a pro-gun organization which has come under fire (yet again) in recent weeks, using her face to promote its agenda. So when the NRA used a Gif of Leslie in a tweet to its followers after a contentious CNN town hall in Parkland, Fl, the cast and crew of Parks and Rec were far from pleased. .@DLoesch thank you for being the voice of over 5 Million #NRA members.

Joe Biden Torches Donald Trump’s Fond Farewell To Ousted Staffer Rob Porter

Joe Biden Claps Back at President Trump's 'Treason' Comments: 'He's a Joke'
Joe Biden called President Trump “a joke” in a new interview with CNN — but the former vice president is not laughing.

On Tuesday, Biden slammed Trump’s recent remarks calling Democrats who didn’t applaud his State of the Union “treasonous,” telling CNN’s Chris Cuomo that he “marvels at some of the things says and does.”

Cuomo noted that the White House has since called the remark tongue-in-cheek. “They say Democrats can’t take a joke,” he told Biden.

“Well, let me tell you, he’s a joke,” the former vice president returned.
