    Yang Is Out, But Universal Basic Income Still Matters | The Daily Show

    CHIENG: Andrew Yang dropped out of the 2020 presidential race, and I’m a little sad about it. Last year, I met him in person, and there was just something about the guy that made me trust him. Not to mention, I really wanted that free money he was promising. Every American adult at the age of 18 should get $1,000 a month free and clear from the government to do whatever they want. CHIENG: Making it rain! It’s called “UBI,” or “Universal Basic Income.” And although the dream died with Yang’s campaign, a few lucky families did get a thousand dollars a month for a year as a test program,…

    Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Dat Boi – @midnight with Chris Hardwick

    Nowadays, having Internet access is just as important as things like education and free speech. After all, it’s how most of us apply for jobs, do our jobs, tweet things that cause us to lose our jobs. That is why the United Nations Human Rights Council has passed a non-binding resolution condemning countries that disrupt citizens’ Internet access. So now it’s considered a basic human right to say stuff like this. “Y’all know that Atlanta spelled backyards is Atlanta.” (laughter) Mm… I think there are other things that Jay do not got besides that juice. -Uh… -FLEMING: No juice. MANDYAM: Chris, he does not speak for all Jays, all right?…

    Virginia Ratifies the Equal Rights Amendment | The Daily Show

    One of the hardest things to do in America is pass an amendment to the Constitution. It’s harder than shooting a porno on the Amtrak Quiet Car. Because, you see, in order to be added to the Constitution, the amendment needs to pass in the House, needs to pass in the Senate and be ratified by 38 states. And how can you get 38 states to agree on anything? I mean, think about it. You can’t even get states to agree on potato salad. Yeah. I mean, if you show up to an Atlanta cookout with raisins, the only thing getting barbecued is your ass. In fact, it’s so tough…

    Ignoring Your Brother’s Calls from Prison – Kiry Shabazz – Bill Burr Presents: The Ringers

    – My brother’s in prison. (laughing) he just got a cellphone, which was good at first, but now he calls home too much. Its to the point where we started ignoring his calls. And now he’s getting hostile and angry about it. He tried to text me the other day, he was like hey bro I called you, I was like yeah man my bad I was busy. He’s like “doing what?” I was like, “nigga enjoying my freedom?” like what do you mean? (laughing) I went outside to run my fingers through blades of grass. Picked a few daffodils. I helped a baby bird back in it’s nest okay,…

    Can You Love the Constitution If You Can’t Read It?

    LET’S GET STRAIGHT INTO THE HEAD LINES. THE BAD NEWS KEEPS PILING ON FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP. AS YOU KNOW, HE’S IN THE MIDDLE OF AN IMPEACHMENT TRIAL. WELL, NOW A NEW WHITE HOUSE TELL-ALL BOOK DETAILS YET ANOTHER EMBARRASSING INCIDENT. WHILE TAKING PART IN A NEW DOCUMENTARY, TRUMP REPORTEDLY STRUGGLED SO MUCH TO READ A PASSAGE FROM THE CONSTITUTION THAT HE GREW FRUSTRATED AND BLAMED NEARBY STAFF. HE WAS LIKE, “I CAN’T FIND WALDO! WHERE IS WALDO?!” IN TRUMP’S DEFENSE, THE PRESIDENTIAL OATH OF OFFICE SAYS HE WILL “PRESERVE, PROTECT, AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION.” THERE’S NOTHING IN THERE ABOUT BEING ABLE TO READ IT. THIS IS TRUE, AT ONE POINT,…

    Guy Who Can’t Stop Quoting Movies (feat. @Gus Johnson) – Addiction Busters

    – Brad is the most annoying guy in our office, maybe the world. We share a cubicle and mornings are rough. – Good mornin’. And, in case I don’t see ya, good afternoon, good evening and good night. That was the… – Truman Show, got it. – Well, alrighty then. (suspenseful music) – The first time Brad’s dad messaged me on Seeking Arrangements, he told me his son had a problem. I assumed it was a drug problem, but he said no, worse. – I met Brad in a chat room for Shrek fans. I thought it was cool that he knew every line from Shrek, but then, a few…

    Can We Pass the Equal Rights Amendment Already? – Desi Lydic Womansplains | The Daily Show

    – When it comes to gender equality, America’s ranked 49th in the world, just below Peru, which means now all those pictures I took stunting at Machu Picchu just make me sad. So I’m here to do my part by educating Americans about vital gender topics. This is Desi Lydic Womansplains. The ERA stands for the equal rights amendment not to be confused with the ERA in baseball, which I’ve also womansplained. God dammit! So, the equal rights amendment. It was first proposed in the 1920s by the National Woman’s Party. They’re my she-ros. Any time there’s a 1920s themed wedding, I show up dressed as a suffragette. Elizabeth said…
