How Do You Pronounce Pete Buttigieg? Here’s A Song To Help You Out

Dark horse Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has been generating buzz on the campaign trail despite one nonpartisan hiccup: his tricky name.  Even TV news hosts have struggled with the name of the South Bend, Indiana mayor: “Most people have trouble pronouncing my name so they just call me ’Mayor Pete,” Buttigieg wrote in a 2016 Medium post, adding that it’s a common surname in Malta, the island-nation where his father was born.  Buttigieg even posted a pronunciation guide on his Twitter bio: BOOT-edge-edge. That led Aaron Nemo, an associate producer on the “Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” to record a song that will help people remember: 

Here’s Who Amy Poehler Thinks Leslie Knope Would Back For President in 2020

Trevor Noah: Beto O’Rourke’s Bid As Surprising As Tucker Carlson’s Racist Remarks

In what may be the biggest non-surprise of the 2020 presidential campaign, Beto O’Rourke announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination, Trevor Noah said Thursday. “Yes, that’s right, Beto O’Rourke is officially in the race,” said “The Daily Show” host. “And it’s about time because he’d been teasing us for months. Yeah, he wouldn’t say he was running. But he was on Oprah. He was on the cover of Vanity Fair. He released a documentary. But whenever we asked him if he was running he’d answer like a coy Southern belle: ‘I might, but a lady never tells.’” “Obviously, we all saw this coming,” Noah added. “This is the least surprising thing to happen since we found out Tucker Carlson said something racist.” Check out the video above to see why Noah thinks O’Rourke’s loss in the 2018 Senate...

Seth Meyers Promises His Vote To A Democrat – On One Condition

Seth Meyers took President Donald Trump to task once again for an apparent lack of understanding that weather and climate are two different things. After Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) announced her candidacy for president over the weekend, Trump posted a tweet mocking her: Well, it happened again. Amy Klobuchar announced that she is running for President, talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures. Bad timing. By the end of her speech she looked like a Snowman(woman)! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 10, 2019 “Why do we have to keep explaining to the president of the United States that weather and climate are two different things,” Meyers asked on “Late Night.” “We live in a country where science teache...

Trevor Noah Ridicules Trump For His Use Of Mind Games With Howard Schultz

When former Starbucks chief executive Howard Schultz announced that he was considering an independent campaign for president, he was greeted with derision by many people, Trevor Noah said. But there was one who seemed elated by the news: Donald Trump. The president even goaded Schultz with a tweet: Howard Schultz doesn’t have the “guts” to run for President! Watched him on @60Minutes last night and I agree with him that he is not the “smartest person.” Besides, America already has that! I only hope that Starbucks is still paying me their rent in Trump Tower! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 28, 2019 And for anyone who was unclear about the intent of Trump’s tweet, the president reiterated his view at a fundraiser on Monday night: Trump told the crowd at the Trump Hotel tonight ...

“I certainly do not. I think he’ll be arrested,” the TV personality, who’s been engaged in a war of words with Trump for more than a decade, told TMZ on Wednesday.  “I believe in America and I believe in our political system, and I believe we will right the wrong of the tyranny of Donald Trump,” she added. She said she also doubted that Trump’s proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border will ever be built.
