Not even the first time a cop mistook their firearm for their taser.

https://www.kare11.com/article/news/i​n​vestigations/a-prior-gun-and-taser-pol​ice-shooting-mistake-in-minnesota/89-f​7a23699-f574-4243-ae75-d18cf6bc5131

After struggling to handcuff the man, one of the officers pulled his Glock handgun and fired a bullet into Atak's back.

The officer later claimed he mistook his Glock for his Taser.

"Until they can't get away with it. They're gonna keep not caring..."

/In a nutshell
 
2021-04-13 2:17:47 AM  
I mean... I'm sorry, but Trevor Noah for so many reasons... just sucks.

He's not funny. He's not original. He's not even American, and although he comes from a place with QUITE OBVIOUSLY a racist history, it's a DIFFERENT history and present.

And he's not Jon. He doesn't even LOOK like he cares.
 
2021-04-13 2:28:29 AM  
Jon is my generation too. At first I was meh about Trevor, and my schedule changed so I didn't catch it too often and he was finding his own.
Then COVID hit and the show had to change. This format suits him. I still don't catch him as often as I should, but I'm not his target audience.
He's doing just fine.

Trevor Noah > Bill Maher
John Oliver > Trevor Noah

Lewis Black > John Stewart

Bill Maher is not cool and I wish him nothing but misfortune for that comment about "woke girlfriends" I really hope he experiences trauma to his penis and his penis gets ruined forever, because he's advocating for women to let themselves get maimed and just shut up about it. Friendship is wasted on Bill Maher and other trash like him.

Everyone else on the list could steal and use my weed and I'd forgive them.

I was a religious Stewart and Colbert watcher until they left their shows.  I never developed  the same connection with Noah but he's pretty f$cking brilliant/funny and only getting better.  Stewart took time to develop also.

I find it funny that people get upset about Maher not being politically correct enough when he makes jokes about people being to overly sensitive about political incorrectness.

Oh God, Bill... Like, if Trevor literally murdered Bill on TV my attitude would totally change.

Bill Maher is what my mom's liberalism likes. She was basically shunned from her religion so she became a hippy.

My biggest problem with Maher is that he thinks he's Bill Hicks too often.

He actually can do okay, even attacking the left. But he's not funny or original enough to get away with the BAD jokes, and quite honestly some of them he seems to mean.
 
2021-04-13 2:58:15 AM  
I know I am being pedantic, but look at mainstream tv. It's not funny. And it's unoriginal.

Bill Maher is like the New Atheist movement from the mid-2000s, where he sounded smart so long as he was dunking on conservatives and young earth creationists... But the moment he has to about anything else, you find out that he's a clueless privileged idiot.
 
2021-04-13 3:00:32 AM  
Anyway, I'm sorry that people don't find Trevor Noah's commentary on the recurring issue of police brutality in our nation particularly entertaining.

Humor can be disarming or set people on edge. I'd rather write a curse filled joke instead of deliberately shooting Maher in the crotch and then claiming I only meant to tase him with the kinky taser but got confused and used a gun which I had because I thought it was my lighter when I left the house. Anti-Woke Maher would surely just laugh off the little mix up and all's forgiven. Right?

Weird things happen at the LA sex club he frequents.

That's scary, because around Gamer Gate, a lot of those New Atheist people veered alt-lite and rebranded their channels into almost exclusively complaining about women.

I feel like you don't need to be a citizen to talk shiat about this country, hell I run out of breath talking shiat about China, Russia, and Israel.

Also, respectively, no. .

Lewis is stronger as a comedian. A style which may be more offputting but it hits.

Jon gets shiat done. He's a comedian who can transcend comedy, yet sadly still doesn't embrace it. His failure is not embracing the power he may have had.

I had the same reaction. It took 2-3 years for him to find his vibe. He has it now. I don't watch every night, but he does good stufff, and is funny most of the time, IMHO.

Purple_Urkle: If anything, Trevor Noah and John Oliver can totally call America out for "false advertising".


It cracks me up when Americans get all prickly because a comedian with a funny accent is talking shiat about us.
Like, who are you defending if that makes you angry? The policies of Dolt 45? America is a farked up nation, it's not even "the best farked up nation out there" it's just not.   We are a bunch of death cult worshiping, science hating, racists who refuse to ask the right questions or demand to see the evidence.  We worship AR15s more than life and deify monsters.

Of course we should be mocked and laughed at.  So what if it comes from across the pond.

Larry Wilmore was better at writing about 2010 events in 1993 than Trevor Noah in 2018.

It wasn't a funny bit because there's no humour to be found in this situation, and he wasn't going to do it the disservice of turning it into a joke just because the farked up reality behind this subject is uncomfortable for certain members of his audience.

My opinion has been the same for years. "Meh". Taking an audience away doesn't change the fact that he wasn't the best alternative to Jon. Hell if anything this has shown how.many people can be entertaining and talented AND EDUCATIONAL beyond network tv.

Calling me salty is acceptable. Disagreeing is fine.
