Personally, my favorite Onion outlet are their videos. This one is about how the GOP mainly attracts older men and in turn younger white men who hold the same ideals as them. Is it offensive? Idk, I don’t think so but a friend of mine mentioned how this video was stereotyping….Let me know what you think.
A little teamwork can’t hurt anybody. I’m not into politics, but I found the video interesting. Plus, I can’t get over Hasan’s reaction when he gets interrupted by Trevor Noah. Thoughts?
Another great video in a long line of SNL’s election coverage.
(they deleted the actual video, but here is a slightly blurry version that’s still up!)

When John Oliver did his Trump piece on HBO Sunday night, the nickname “Drumpf” — the family name before a name change — was trending on social media. You can even install a Chrome browser add-on that changes Trump’s name to Drumpf in all instances. But a Washington Post writer suggests that Oliver’s humor employs the same kind of xenophobia that we detest when we spot it in Trump.
What do you think?
Generational faults are usually the most funny when pointed out by people of the same generation. This skit is a little old but I appreciate the culture commentary, and always love comedians who aren’t afraid to make fun of themselves.
Did this work for you?
Its usually a good idea to incorporate an outside voice into our everyday perspective of the news. Especially when that outside voice is a well dressed British man filled with rage.
