John Oliver: Putin


Bookmarks on February 18th, 2017


Guten Morgen


Kom­men wir zu unser­er täglichen Com­e­dyshow aus Ameri­ka: Die Lage in den USA ist nach der gestri­gen Pressekon­ferenz von Don­ald Trump so schlimm, dass selb­st Fox News verzweifelt. Bei CNN drückt Jake Tap­per sich etwas sach­lich­er aus — der war gestern schon gut drauf.

Auf CNN unterucht man auch Trump auf Krankheit­saspek­te.

Auch Stephen Col­berts Stand-up-Ein­gang han­delt auss­chließlich von Trump.

Und während ich mir die Frage stelle: Kann man unter dem Trump-Rum­mel poli­tis­chen Schmu durch­winken? hole ich mir erst­mal noch einen Kaf­fee.

  • Ban­non v Kush­n­er pow­er strug­gle makes Fri­days inter­est­ing at W.H. — “A well-placed D.C. source says it’s no coin­ci­dence that Pres­i­dent Trump’s anti-Mus­lim “trav­el ban” broke last Fri­day after senior pres­i­den­tial advis­er Jared Kush­n­er, an obser­vant Jew, had checked out for the day. The sit­u­a­tion is described by our spy as “a pow­er strug­gle between two senior advis­ers” Kush­n­er and for­mer Bre­it­bart chief, Steve Ban­non.
    “Every­one is work­ing 24/7, but Jared, because of his reli­gious views, not only can’t be in the White House, but can’t be on his phone, can’t dri­ve his car, can’t lis­ten to the radio — he can’t be reached,” says our whistle­blow­er. Obser­vant Jews are pro­hib­it­ed from work­ing between sun­set Fri­day and sun­set Sat­ur­day.”
  • For Ger­many, Trump Pos­es a Prob­lem With No Clear Solu­tion — “We still don’t real­ly have a clue who we are in the world and who we want to be,” said Jana Puglierin of the Ger­man Coun­cil on For­eign Rela­tions. That makes it dif­fi­cult to face increas­ing­ly urgent ques­tions, she said, over “what role we should play, who Ger­many is, how dom­i­nant do we want to be.”
