I love the moment when the camera cuts to Williams, and he holds the "can you believe the shiat you just heard?" look for just long enough.

He did well in his 30 Rock cameos. Has a Leslie Nielsen vibe with the serious stentorian voice coupled with perfect timing. He seems to understand the importance of performance in humor and worked his way up from there.

FOX News is a steaming pile of shiat.  No thanks.

There's a bit of frustrated actor in Williams, or maybe it's just in the genes. After all, his daughter is an actress:

That's the point.

So...sarcasm?

Sure, let's break out the Bactine for that sick burn but geez get a grip. Other people have done it a whole lot better.

Always considered Williams a blow-dried airhead on TV but at least he's a journalist despite being a college drop out.

It's an MSNBC link, they only use the Fox clip initially for a really bad Heraldo take, which Williams then destroys.

And to think I unblocked Twitter for that!

That'll teach me.

Good job, Brian... well done!
 
2020-11-21 11:59:58 AM  
That was very much like a segment from The Daily Show.

More precisely, it's ironic, but your point still stands.

That was amusing and as brain dead as Trump and his cult are they probably didn't get it and  ran a victory lap.

Trump punked you all biatches. By not doing anything about the virus and encouraging people to let it run wild through our nation he forced the hands of our greatest scientists to develop a vaccine faster than they have ever worked before. Without that motivation they would have never gotten out of their comfy lounge chairs floating in their enormous pools in the backyards of their massive mansions, and as a result a potential vaccine would have been decades away.

You all should be down on your hands and knees praying to our great leader Trump and thanking him for not giving a shiat about you because that is why he is about to save humanity.

This is one of those burns where it starts off as superficial and slowly enters third degree territory.

Well done, Brian.

He's anti "Name the virus after a man who didn't do a god damn thing while a quarter of a million needless deaths happened" you freaking spud head. Time and again you prove the truth in "User name checks out".

Sarcasm is a form of irony, so calling it irony is less precise.  Ironically.

How he did that with that dry deadpan voice I will never understand.

Time for wit and sarcasm to redeem the 30 minute network national news broadcasts?
For the 6:00 news, on any network, that was savage.
