Daily Show Covers The Interesting Loopholes Politicians Create For Themselves To Have Fun
A short outline of some of the interesting ways politicians in the United States are corrupt using 3 videos from the Daily Show.
DONALD TRUMP PREDICTS A RIGGED ELECTION - AUGUST 8, 2016 - After Donald Trump accuses Democrats of planning to rig the presidential election, Trevor reflects on past instances of electoral fraud in the U.S. (9:59)
1. How Corrupt Politicians Rig Elections Here Using The Name "Gerrymandering";
A short commentary on screenshots;
This isn't news. Paul Ryan & the GOp has been pushing a budget to bankrupt America for a long time (as I have argued before, is basic treason... this was followed by Robert Reich basically agreeing with me - back then).
Paul Ryan’s Fairy-Tale Budget Plan
Paul Ryan's Disastrous Obamacare Interview Shows Republican Ideology is Officially Bankrupt While impossible to predict the nature of the 2016 Presidential election, we can be sure it won't be a battle of ideas. Because one side categorically doesn't have any.
Media doesn't cover it properly (they should have a sign on network news 24/7 saying "the plan to destroy America's economy is still in play with Paul Ryan's budget plan", or something like that on a continuous basis until the American public knows the facts... rather than nothing or a random comment here or there that no one will remember)
The fact that the media would focus on "titties" rather than the GOP's plan to destroy America makes sense. They helped with the Iraq War as well. One thing you can be sure of. If our corrupt political establishment comes up with a plan, any plan, the media will help. A couple of examples of stuff the media does to betray the people;
The Ultimate Collection Of 50 Fox News Lies Exposed By The Daily Show & Backed By Politifact
This guy is a perfect example of a liar;
Gerrymandering and stealing tax dollars to give to their rich corporate buddies has been going on for a long time. Rather than pointing this out Hannity tries to skew the conversation with biased bullshit that is easy to catch for most people (not conservatives... mostly because they think Fox News is telling them the truth and the rest of the media plays along except for occasional comments that can never be remembered i.e. public only remembers an outcry). I have added a Daily Show video (from long ago) that covered mostly the GOP side of the gerrymandering... which is higher I think but both are clearly corrupt;
Another thing media hasn't been covering as they side with Republicans against Trump, i.e. that the GOP have been following a strategy of racism since Nixon.
Trevor Noah reports on the rigging in the political system on the Democrat side;
This is the most important difference between America and any other country on this planet. Here corruption is never called corruption (and that has always been enough!)...
Here Trevor Noah covers some of the racist political strategies of the GOP that they can't hide behind words (which shouldn't work anyways, i.e. in a country with a news media);
2. ALL politicians in America rig elections;
Shutstorm 2013: America Sits on Its Balls - Republican Shutdown - John Oliver explains the electorally invincible strategy behind unpopular Congressional actions. (06:09):
IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU CALL THIS "GERRYMANDERING" OR "RIGGING" ... IT'S STILL PLAIN, OLD FASHIONED, ELECTORAL FRAUD.
CHART from Mother Jones: Americans didn’t intend to elect a Republican majority to the House of Representatives. But thanks to GOP-engineered redistricting, they did.
3. How politicians get paid for their efforts (bribes here are called "high paying jobs");
Here Trevor Noah compares a Brazilian corruption scandal to an American corruption NON-scandal to show how Brazilians need to organize their democracy to be as cool as America! (i.e. learn how to hide thier corruption with high paying jobs rather than upfront cash bribes etc.)
Daily Show: BRAZIL MOVES TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT DILMA ROUSSEFFAPRIL 19, 2016 - After Brazil's Congress votes to impeach President Dilma Rousseff on corruption charges, Trevor explains how to "influence" government without breaking laws. (6:48)
Summing up, sarcastically, Trevor Noah explains the path of Brazilian Corruption VS American Corruption;
Trevor Noah totally humiliated America's political establishment!
