Why do they keep saying there is no proof? I guess they don't understand anything about what an investigation is or how it is structured. We will not know the outcome until the investigation has concluded. When folks say there is no proof they are lying or dreaming. You are speculating. Stop pretending you know, because you don't!
7:24. As with many "as seen on TV" products, *you* are not the target audience for these products. You know who is? Disabled people, including the elderly (in this case). People who cannot physically bend over to put on a sock, or maybe are missing a hand/arm so struggle to get a sock on their foot.
You're a dick. Real people with real disabilities depend on these "lazy" products just to do the things you take for granted. Making fun of the disabled, the chronically ill, or the elderly is a disgusting low. Grow the fuck up!
y'know part of me almost wishes they *would* throw Hillary in jail, *just* to see the look on Hannity's face when they say "ok, now that she's done with, nothing to stop us from investigating Trump now"
Do people actually listen to this snakedick and think he's funny or at all humorous? He's a British buffoon who looks like Luke Wilson. Aside from not being the least bit funny, he's an senseless imbecile. That whole part about the allegedly useless products, especially the Sock Slider that they focused particular attention to and seemed to find the most useless... Does this fuckwit have any experience with adversity? Has he never faced any physical hardships or, at least, witnessed someone who has? At least very least, does he have a fucking imagination?
Because, if he had any sense, any experience with disabled people, or the slightest imagination, he'd realize that there are countless people who could not only use these things, but they absolutely NEED them--people such as my elderly mother who has cancer and already had problems with mobility, but then, as if shit wasn't bad enough, she recently broke her hip. Well, guess what? She happens to find her Sock Slider extremely useful. In fact, without it or some other similar gadget, she would require the assistance of me or my father each and every time she puts on her socks.
So while this senseless snakedick laughs it up about these allegedly "useless" or "needless" products, he and his foolish and imbecilic team of writers apparently completely lack the most important tool a writer can have--an imagination. Because, like I said, if you haven't faced physical hardships and disabilities, you MIGHT be able to dismiss such tools, but if you have the slightest bit of sense and an imagination, you just might think to yourself, "Oh, wait a minute... This Sock Slider thing ISN'T just yet another tool for those LAZY American's... It's actually quite useful for the countless disabled and handicapped people around the world who are seeking some semblance of personal sovereignty and the ability to do things for themselves without relying on further assistance from family or caretakers. Further, I guess it would probably be quite useful for people who might be injured, and, actually, come to think of it, the elderly, ESPECIALLY elderly folks with injuries, might find it quite useful and helpful as well!"
But alas, I shouldn't expect that from John Oliver or the people who write his shitty jokes, for he's always been a humorless fuck-o, but I guess this just reminded me that he's also a complete senseless snakedick with no imagination.
Part of me agrees with Vox's article, and that these things like the Sock Slider are needed for people with disabilities, and another part of my brain marvels that no matter how many right wing zealots call John a leftist, SJW whiner, there will always be other people even more sensitive who point him out as insensitive.
This is funny. Between when this video came out and now we have learned so much more. Yet one thing we have not learner about is anything pertaining to Russia. Just corruption throughout our justice and law departments.
I usually like your channel but making fun of those who have bad backs and bending forward enough to put them on causes intense pain or worse. You feel this is funny?? I MUST wear certain slip-on shoes so I don't hurt myself further and so I can actually get shoes on myself. I wish my pain on you and you will never laugh at others in such a cold-hearted way again. You pretend to laugh at the device but are making fun of those who need these things. I didn't know sock sliders existed and I am going to look into getting one because it would be extremely helpful for me. You are a sad little man if you can't see this is not funny. How about you laugh at my mom because she really loves the jar opener I bought her and she can actually buy things in jars and open them herself and be more independent. I thought you were better than such cold comments. I was subscribed but unlike the ignorant, I will not listen or watch this kind of evil crap.
It floors me when Hannity tries to challenge mueller to come on his show, and share evidence. That's not how the legal system works, but don't worry Sean, I'm sure you'll be sitting in front of mueller before too long.
I didnt realize that it was common to use racism to get out of jury duty. Ive gotten out of it twice with that..plus that all men are guilty of what they are accused of. I hope I wont have to come up with another type of excuse. I cant live on ten dollars a day.
No matter what comes of the investigation, they’ll be “right”(Biggest air quotes ever). If the investigation yields nothing, it was a witchhunt, and if it does, it was a conspiracy to take him down. They can’t fucking loose! Grrrrrrr!
You know it all comes down to the fact that people watch the News to understand politics but never really do. So they just believe what"s being said on it, and then make votes and decisions based on what they view as fact.
to all the trumptards out there i just want to ask you to think about this:
if there was evidence of obama getting help from a foreing government to win his elections you wouldnt want someone to investigate to see if its true or false?
now chance obama for trump and if you dont feel the same way than before please shut the fck up and let mueller end his fcking job
you fcking hypocrite
We in Holland maintain a strict zero tolerance policy as far as fucking is concerned.
Married or otherwise.
So in 2008 we were shocked to find out that we as a country had been fucked.
We not only got fucked but were totally screwed on top of that.
Been binging old stories for a couple hours now and I’m legitimately impressed with how consistent you guys have been with getting ‘the Olsen twin’ in there. It’s spanning at least a year. Subtle at times but oh so impressive.
From the relative safety of Sweden (election in just days and far right idiots seem to breed like fucking viral rabbits, so we’ll see...) I want to wish you a speedy recovery from your self imposed difficulties over there.
I'm not a Trump supporter, nor do I believe in any of these conspiracy theories, but to answer the question "if the entire deep state conspired to stop Trump from being President, how did he win?" The answer they could give is that there was so much overwhelming support from the "real" American people, that it was impossible for them to stop Trump.
A rebuttal to that is an incredulous stare.
I'm curious and I'm being 100% serious and not trying to take the piss outta anything: Is there a reporter, commentator or journalist on FOX who is actually fair, decent, professional, unbiased and not an ass kisser to the GOP?
Actually, there is. Check out Shepard Smith. Fox puts him on in the middle of the afternoon, when most of their viewers are taking their naps.
Fox doesn't dare put him on prime time.
Chris Wallace is also good.
well hardly its basically saying all politicians are corrupt in some way. and who would say such a thing i wonder, hillary supports probably. cuz it also works the other way around. its pointing out hypocrisy in that example. calling trump corrupt while waving the hillary flag. its important to consider the whole context at all times.
"black people commit more crimes than white people, statistically"
"but what about systemic problems in black communities like fathers leaving their families, which definitely relate to the topic at hand"
"were not talking about that now, also you said what about so youre wrong anyway"
Let's try this from another angle...
Here's one I know you've seen many times...
Someone says, just as an example, mind you, "Trump is a criminal and should be locked up!" Then someone else responds with, "But, what about Hillary's e-mails?" Those two things are not related. They are two separate things. That's a deflection. It's common tactic.
Richard Darlington it would be deflection if it were an unrelated topic, but it isnt. its not the exact same topic but they clearly relate in the broader picture. while focusing on one specific point can be benefitial, in a complex structure like politics itll leave all the other small things that play into that unaccounted for. bringing them up is not diversion, its considering a wider context
Now which hunts are we uncovering. Conspiracy Money Launering, obstruction? 13 indicatments?, 5 guilty pleas?. Swamp meat du jour? Hunter & his old lady? Collins indictment? Cohen Manifort Pompadopoli? Flynn how bout Gates?
Which Wich is Dumpers pissed at on this fine day?
just because they cant reach their feet doesn't mean they can't pic something up or put it down. It is actually pretty similar to devices used in hospitals and nursing homes to put on anti-embolism socks.
"If the support for the investigation into Russia continues to drop Trump might feel empowered to shut it down"... Doesn't he have the power to shut it down regardless of public opinion? He could shut it down and even pardon himself if he chose.
I had to stop watching this video. I can't watch one more fox news clip. I know this is said a lot, but I feel dumber when watching Fox News. Maybe I just needed a I second to collect myself before I finish the rest of this video.
This Has Become A Bold Face Disrespect to the intellect of the American People. If you believe anything Fox News Said or better yet repeats it as facts. Your more than likely over 50 and we’re all waiting on you to die so the grown ups can run the planet.
the thing is that the people who think that its a witch hunt are the ones who are die hard republicans, which is the problem. Its our tribalistic tendencies to see anyone out side our group as the enemy. If your not on my side your bad, anyone on my side is good. And thats the problem, too many people will just vote for a party not the person on the ballot, we NEED to look at who is on the ballot no matter what side their actually on and determine, is this person going to do a good job and do what is needed, and not just use their public tax payer appointment to make themselves and their friends rich with insider trading, low bid contracts, useless and pointless appointments that serve only to pay them for sitting on a panel and producing a report that is not reviewed by actual professionals but by people who are there to push an agenda.
Hannity got rektd. He is one of the biggest problems in America. He doesnt even considered himself a journalist. Hes a talk show host. So anything that he says is his idea or opinion. And for anyone listening to his shit. Guess what? His idea and opinion could be complete bullshit with no evidence to his claim. And you believe it. That's called a cult.
i still remember when the south park creators said that they couldnt make fun of trump because they couldnt come up with something more absurd and/or ridiculous than what the president can come out on his own
you know sht hit the fan when south park cant make fun of the president because he is doing it all by himself
Whenever Guiliani does that "bug-eyed, look down" face, he looks like Smeagol getting surprise buttsex. Fucking ghoul.
It's like he has a split personality, and His Face can't even believe the shit His Mouth is saying.
Republican Presidencies Have 91X the Convictions Rate of Democratic Presidencies

The fact the mainstream media are hiding that Hillary Clinton and DNC paid the dossier which Steele (a British) collected from Russians says it's a witch hunt. Here's a collusion!
And I still haven't forgotten the fact that this witch hunt is just a distraction from the crimes that were done in the Obama administration, don't forget the spying that went on during the 2016 and 2015 campaign.
Don't watch many fox news but Hannity was right and those were facts!
There was no crime to appoint a special counsel and you need one to order 1.
Again John is not arguing against the facts that hannity showed. Instead John is just trying to humiliate Hannity. For example FBI lovers were in charge for Hillary Clinton "investigation" and cleared her before that that did any investigation. Strozk said he wanted to impeach Trump before this witch hunt began and typed in phone he wanted to stop trump from being president!!!
Why didn't the deep state warn trump about this so called Witch hunt???
Well they didn't bother to warn the democrat senator feinstein that her driver (20 years) was a chines spy!
“Set aside for now how you feel about Trump or politics because the question, ‘did a foreign government interfere in our election’ is something any reasonable person should want answered quickly.”
Oh John, when will you learn that Trumptards aren’t reasonable people? They reject reality itself whenever it doesn’t support their Dear Leader or their worldview.
I bet you would be stone cold silent if Lucifer Clinton was President with vice president being the Anti-Christ, except for laughing about millions of Christians being be-headed for knowing the truth, and refusing to denounce it! You are a very funny man, who, unfortunately, wouldn't know the truth if it kicked your ass!
Please don't make fun of physical aids like the sock gadget you made fun of on the show. Some people legitimately need these devices. The only way they can advertise these as normal devices is by having actors pretend to have the same issues with many people with disabilities have every day. (I understand if you don't agree or listen, but I thought I'd ask. :) It's important to help support persons with disabilities.)
