WATCH: Colbert shames Bush

Jeb Bush thought he could fund raise off of Stephen Colbert without asking first. Colbert’s not letting him get away with it.

Scott Walker wants a border wall… between the US and Canada

Scott Walker

Scott Walker must be jealous of all the attention Donald Trump gets when Trump says stupid shit. Because today, Scott Walker wants a border wall… between the US and Canada.

Maybe it’s to keep Americans from crossing the border to get affordable health care.

WASHINGTON — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), a staunch advocate of beefing up security on the southern border, said Sunday he is open to building a wall on the U.S. border with Canada as well.

The Republican presidential candidate said the idea of building a northern wall was brought up to him during a recent town hall in New Hampshire.

“That is a legitimate issue for us to look at,” Walker said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Republicans typically take a tough approach on securing the southern border, but few have said a wall should also be built along the U.S.-Canada border.

Become friends with Jesus on Facebook or we push the thorns in harder.

I saw this Facebook meme that’s a “friend request” from Jesus, and he’s staring at me while wearing his big crown of thorns. I guess that’s supposed to make me feel guilty, but I’m thinking, “Dude! Get the fuck off Facebook and go to the hospital! You’ve got thorns stuck in your skull!”

Of course Trump’s not in it for the money.

They keep saying “Well, Donald Trump’s not in it for the money,” as if that proves he’s a good guy.

No, of course he’s not in it for the money. He’s in it for the POWER, just like the rest of them. None of them are ever in it for the money. Please stop saying stupid things.

Biden has the highest favorability rating of ANY candidate so far, Democrat or Republican.

In a new Quinnipiac University poll, Vice President Joe Biden handily beats anyone in the GOP field by a wider margin than Hillary Clinton. Of course, that’s not the headline in the media, which is solely focused on Donald Trump, who continues beating the rest of the Republican lineup, but continues to lose against Hillary and Joe.

If you dig deeper into Trump’s numbers, however, there are very troubling signs. Among Republicans, he’s got some severe problems on some pretty important issues, issues which could sink him in a general election and may keep him from winning the GOP nomination, despite how high his popularity numbers are.

But the real headline here, the one the media is missing, is that Joe Biden’s possible entrance into the race shows he’s stronger than Clinton in a general election, and this has got to be raising eyebrows among Democratic party power brokers. Biden has higher favorability ratings than ANY candidate so far, Democrat or Republican.

More from CNN:

Vice President Joe Biden fares better against top GOP candidates in hypothetical general election match-ups than Hillary Clinton, according to a new national survey.

The Quinnipiac University poll, released Thursday, also shows Donald Trump smashing the GOP presidential competition garnering 28% support from registered Republican voters in the 17-member field. The real estate mogul’s closest competitor is retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who tallies 12%.

[…} And Trump certainly isn’t loved by everyone, the survey shows. About 1-in-4 GOP voters say they would never vote for Trump, topping the field. Bush comes in second with 18%.

Clinton still leads the Democratic race at 45% support from registered Democrats, followed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at 22% and Biden — who is currently mulling a 2016 bid — at 18%.

But Biden, currently sporting the highest favorability rating among any 2016 candidates polled of either party, tops Trump 48% to 40%, compared to Clinton, who beats Trump 45% to 41%. Biden also beats Bush, 45% to 39%, compared to Clinton, who beats Bush 42% to 40%.

No, we’re not going to do a damn thing about gun violence this time, either.

Hillary Clinton said today that we’ve got to do something about gun violence.

Oh, shut up.

We say this EVERY F—ING TIME.

It should be clear by now that WE’RE NOT GOING TO DO A DAMN THING ABOUT GUN VIOLENCE. If we haven’t done anything before, we’re not going to do anything now, and we’re not going to do anything the next time.

We lack the intelligence, the courage and the will to do anything about gun violence. All we can manage is to tsk tsk and shake our heads, and then forget.

The piles of dead bodies will NEVER be high enough for this horrid, brutal, brutish, unfeeling, uncaring, brainless, soulless country to ever do anything about gun violence. Face it, America, and let’s all admit it to ourselves: WE DON’T GIVE A SHIT HOW MANY PEOPLE DIE OR HOW MANY TIMES IT HAPPENS.

All we care about are our reality shows. That’s why we love Donald Trump.

This is America, where you can be shot and killed at any time.

This is America, where you can be shot and killed at any time, while doing anything, by anyone for any reason, just like two TV employees simply doing their jobs this morning.

Thank you, you fucking gun nuts, for turning this into that kind of country. Fuck you all. Fuck you forever.
