Biden roasts Trump, GOP, himself at correspondents’ dinner - https://www.cnbc.com/2022/05/01/biden-roasts-trump-gop-himself-at-correspondents-dinner.html
"The White House press corps’ annual gala returned Saturday night along with the roasting of Washington, the journalists who cover it and the man at the helm: President Joe Biden.
The White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, sidelined by the pandemic in 2020 and 2021, featured Biden as the first president in six years to accept an invitation. Donald Trump shunned the event while in office.
“Just imagine if my predecessor came to this dinner this year,” Biden told an audience of 2,600, among them journalists, government officials and celebrities. “Now that would really have been a real coup.”"

The Damage Report: May 2, 2022

A Karen in Sephora freaks out and throws products then slaps the security guard which led to a brawl in the store. John Iadarola and Francesca Fiorentini break it down on The Damage Report. Read more here: What exactly is a 'Karen' and where did the meme come from? - https://www.bbc.com/news/world-53588201 "To give some examples, "Karen" is associated with the kind of person who demands to "speak to the manager" in order to belittle service industry workers, is anti-vaccination, and carries out racist micro-aggressions, such as asking to touch black people's hair. But a predominant feature of the "Karen" stereotype is that they weaponise their relative privilege against people of colour - for example, when making police complaints against black people for minor or even - in numerous cases - fictitious infringements."

Former secretary of defense for Donald Trump, Mark Esper, reveals Trump's calls for violence against Black Lives Matter protests in his new memoir. John Iadarola and Francesca Fiorentini break it down on The Damage Report.

In the spring of 2020, as protests over the brutal police murder of George Floyd convulsed the country, Mr Esper says the former president grew increasingly furious at the demonstrators flooding the streets of the capital.“Can’t you just shoot them? Just shoot them in the legs or something?” Mr Trump allegedly asked, according to an excerpt obtained by Axios."

Donald Trump tries to hype up the Ohio candidate he endorsed and has appeared with multiple times, J.D. Vance, but instead mixes him up with his competitor, Josh Mandel. John Iadarola and Francesca Fiorentini break it down on The Damage Report. Read more here: Trump Praises Imaginary Ohio Senate Candidate ‘J.D. Mandel’ - https://www.thedailybeast.com/donald-trump-crows-over-endorsement-of-jd-mandel-confusing-ohio-senate-candidates-jd-vance-josh-mandel?ref=home "No one appears to be more surprised by Donald Trump’s endorsement of J.D. Vance for the Ohio Senate than the former president himself, who on Sunday appeared not to know the former Never-Trumper’s name. Speaking at a “Save America” rally in Nebraska in support of Charles Herbster, a Republican gubernatorial candidate accused of sexually assaulting eight women, Trump crowed to a crowd: “You know, we’ve endorsed Dr. Oz. We’ve endorsed—J.P., right? J.D. Mandel, and he’s doing great. They’re all doing good.” Trump appeared to be confusing the names of Ohio Republican primary candidates Josh Mandel, whom he hasn’t endorsed, and J.D. Vance, whom he (reluctantly) has. Mandel, a former Ohio State treasurer running on a pro-Trump platform, was long presumed the front-runner in a crowded primary field until the former president issued his endorsement of Vance last month. “In the Great State of Ohio, the candidate most qualified and ready to win in November is J.D. Vance,” Trump’s April 15 statement said. “We cannot play games. It is all about winning!” With the primary coming up on May 3, Trump may want to brush up with a rousing round of “Guess Who: Ohio Senate Edition.”" Watch Francesca on The Bitchuation Room Sundays at 5/8EST http://www.youtube.com/franifio Follow Francesca: http://www.twitter.com/franifio Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Donald Trump endorsed candidate, Charles Herbster, speaks at the Save America rally to promote himself for governor of Nebraska and has others defend him after eight women have accused him of sexual misconduct. John Iadarola and Francesca Fiorentini break it down on The Damage Report. Read more here: Second woman publicly accuses Trump-backed candidate of sexual misconduct - https://thehill.com/news/campaign/3472790-second-woman-publicly-accuses-trump-backed-candidate-of-sexual-misconduct/ "A second woman is publicly accusing Trump-endorsed Nebraska gubernatorial candidate Charles Herbster (R) of sexual misconduct after a Republican state senator alleged earlier this month that she had been touched inappropriately by Herbster. Elizabeth Todsen, in a statement provided through her attorney, alleged that she had been sexually groped by Herbster in 2019 and said her experience had been “thoroughly described” in previous reporting by the Nebraska Examiner. “For years I have struggled with an experience I had with Charles W. Herbster. At a political event in 2019, Herbster sexually groped me while greeting my table. This was the same night that Herbster aggressively grabbed Senator Julie Slama,” Todsen said."

Newsmax hosts can't always control their guests and sometimes that means the interview gets cut early, especially if they are talking with Mike Lindell.

In a Monday-morning segment about the billionaire Elon Musk hosting "Saturday Night Live," the guest brought on to discuss the subject had other plans in mind. "I did not watch 'Saturday Night Live.' I watched the clips. The show is on too late. Quite frankly, I don't think it's that funny anymore," Newsmax's Rob Finnerty said at the beginning of the segment. Finnerty also complimented former President Donald Trump on the ratings he received when he hosted the show back in 2015."
