Spider-Man Fitness Challenge! Superhero Gear Test & Obstacle Course | KIDCITY


three four five what’s up everybody its kids city back
with another spider-man Fitness Gym now that it’s worn up it’s important for
everybody to get outside stretch your legs today the kids are competing in a
obstacle course designed to get them both kids will run two rounds and the
idea is on the second round to better their time so they’re competing against
themselves you guys ready to do it yeah in this obstacle the kids will have
seven different challenges they’ll start at the agility rings move through the
spider-man crawl ropes hop down the bouncer lane
bob and weave through the soccer cones and then successfully make a long soccer
goal before they measure their long jump which will earn them some bonus seconds
on their times now the kids aren’t competing against each other they are
competing against themselves so in round two they’ll have to push themselves just
a little bit harder and try to beat their own times to help them out they’ll
be testing out new lycra spider-man suits that are specifically designed for
athletes we’ll see if that helps them get better times first up is Ava you
wanna do some stretches gymnastics beam she fell all right here
we go round one ready she’s going through the spider-man crawl
to see what kind of time she can get now she’s gonna suit up what’s going on
what OSHA bugs that’s gonna those bugs are messing you up on your time get on
the bouncy ball and get it down girl okay she’s gonna go on to the bounce the
bounce lane see how she does this is this is a she’s doing good and now she’s
gonna move over to the weight training oh she’s picking up Beckett’s weights oh
my goodness one two three okay she just did three there sucker ball she’s got
she’s got that soccer ball she’s got a weave in and out of these cones here I don’t know what’s what the holdup is the
balls getting away from her whoa she’s moving over here
now she’s got to make this kick all the way
no sir doggy get out of the way Mac one more kick or two more kicks where are you going she’s just gonna get
in that goal and now she’s got to do the long jump and jump from the first line
oh and that’s a skip too and she finishes minute 34 a minute 34 but what we’re
doing is we are subtracting the seconds based on the number that they hit on the
long jump so the better they jumped the better their time will be we’re gonna
subtract two seconds and her official time becomes one minute thirty two
seconds do you think you can do better the
second time yeah we’ll see all right for your first round with no spider-man
costume okay no spider-man suit what is your prediction less than a minute it’s
just gold guys less than a minute three two one oh yeah let’s see how clean he
can get these spider cross whoa look at that now this is giving him trouble in
the past this little bouncy ball oh he does it with precision he speaks through
now ten lifts one two three four five six seven eight nine well that was sort
of a half lift on the end there and the dogs getting in the way there and he’s got one shot Oh get that back
get that back here that’s gonna hurt his time a little bit almost it comes right
back to him oh no the dogs trying to block him and play goalie Matt get out
of the way there you go gotta make that long jump okay two and a half and he finishes in a
minute and 22 seconds – two and a half we’ll give him minute 19 one minute 19
good time considering we missed a couple of kicks there what are you doing yeah
I’m that chart it came back I just accidentally just got more far out yeah
a little to the right it looked like hey let’s put on them spider-man costume see
if we get a little bit better wind resistance in round two the kids are
going to be putting on these specialized spider-man costumes that are not just
any costumes from a Halloween store they’re actually costumes made out of
lycra that are designed like athletic wear to give them less wind resistance
in a better chance of a better time on this obstacle course
Iron Man calls this calls his costume like the mark 1 mark – I think we’re
gonna call this the spider-man mark wedgie this is completely form-fitting
this is like a like an ice skater let’s turn this way it’s like an ice skater
suit not like a performance ice skater but like a speed skater some so for
protection we’re gonna add the shoes to this one although does come with feet
and I think that you’ve got a better chance oh look at these it’s got extra
long fingers we don’t know yeah these actually have 3d masks on here you look
like a mini spider-man can you see no yes yes yes nice Oh show us your spider

long jump here maybe one okay we’re gonna subtract one from that and she
actually had almost the same time she finishes with a minute 30 it’ll show us
your muscles oh good job Ava let’s see if spider-man can get this thing done
no that was a weak high five she wants you to do the best oh why did you punch
him in the stomach all right little Spidey your first time was a minute 19

Maya the Bee – Bedtime Story (BedtimeStory.TV)

Maya the Bee – Bedtime Story (BedtimeStory.TV)


Maya the Bee Ooo…It’s so bright… Maya was a very young bee, only a few days old. She was cared for by Mrs. Kassandra, together
with a group of other little bees. Maya, please pay attention. This is important. Use your sting only when you really have to… Oh, that looks so yummy! / Maya! Yes? Ha ha. When you go out, make sure you watch out
for spider webs, and don’t get caught… When can I go outside with my sisters? At long last, Maya was allowed to go
out and gather honey with her sisters. Ooo..this is so exciting!!! Stay close Maya, don’t fly too high, Maya! But the world is so magnificent… I want to see everything!!! Ha ha! Wow!!! Look, what’s that? What’s this?…and this? Slow down Maya, one question at a time! But I want to know everything at once…Wow… Listen Maya, all you need to know is
how to find the right flowers. You don’t need to worry about all those trees. They won’t help you make honey.
/ Oh…but…. Just fly along with me…slowly…and hum so I know you’re there. Oh…okay…hey, wait for me!!! Maya tried to do as she was told, but she was distracted by
the sparkling drops of dew on the flowers, and got left behind. Oh, how pretty! Mmmm…. Ouch! Huh? Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t know there was anyone here. Did I wake you? Oh, it’s okay. I was just taking a little nap. Why don’t you come in and take a look around my home? Thanks. What kind of flower is this? This flower is called a rose. A rose! It’s so very pretty! A little while later, Maya found herself flying over a pond. As she looked down, she was astonished to see
another honeybee just like her in the water. Oh, hello! I am Maya. It’s nice to meet you. Ha ha! Don’t bother, child, it’s just a reflection. It’s like a mirror. Huh? What’s a mirror? It’s a thing people use to see themselves But don’t get fooled by a mirror reflection
and try to fly towards it. You’ll just crash into the mirror and hit your head. Oh…I see Maya kept flying until she reached a forest. Help! Does anybody hear me? It was a dung beetle called Kurt, who was in trouble. What is it? / Help…I can’t get up…can you help me out? I’d be happy to. What should I do? Can you flip me over? Ugh…ugh…Oh…I’m not sure I can… Wait…I’ve got it! Here grab hold of this and pull. Hurray! You did it!!! Ha ha ha! Thank you. That was very good of you. My name is Maya. Thank you, Maya. I’m Kurt. You’re welcome, Kurt. Oh…it’s getting dark… maybe I should sleep here tonight. Look at that moon! It reminds me of
the honey bread Kassandra used to make… I wonder what she’s doing now… but I can’t go back yet. There’s still so much to see! What a lovely morning. What adventures will I have today? Oh! Huh? What’s that? Ugh… Ahhh! Help! Help! My wings are trapped in the web! Please help me! Ha ha! Foolish child, This is my web, and you are my prey. I’m a spider! I will paralyze you with my venom,
and then I will drink your blood. Why? It was only then that Maya remembered Kassandra’s warnings. Oh, if only I had listened to her and been more careful. She told me so much about the dangers of the forest. You will stay here and prepare to become my dinner. I am going to look for more victims,
but I will be back! Ha ha! Ohhh…is this end? Is this how I will die? Maya! Is that you, Maya!? Yes it’s me! Kurt! Oh no! You’ve been captured by the spider! It’s my turn to help you now! Here… Yes! I’m flying again! I’m free! Thank you so much!!! Kurt, You’re the best. Well, I owed you one. You helped me out first. But be careful now, and don’t let yourself get caught again. Okay? Oh, I won’t Maya drank some sweet nectar from a daffodil to get her strength back. Oh.. Hello. Yes! I have it now…Ugh! Who are you? Oh! You scared me. I’m Maya the bee. I am Beetle, the great poet. Do you want to hear my new poem? Uhh…okay… A pretty beetle swayed on a petal, swayed on a petal and sang! Well? What do you think? Ummm…it’s good. I don’t know much about poetry, but… From the moment we met, I could tell you
were a great critic who appreciates genuine art! A what? / If you hadn’t understood me,
you see, I probably would have wept. Oh no, please don’t cry… I weep for the unenlightened masses who cannot see the meaning of my art…. I feel a new inspiration coming…farewell! What a strange cloud…is there something inside of it? Ow! Let me go! Ha ha ha! I have a treat for our Queen! Ha ha ha! Let go! Ahhhh!!!! Help! Serve this little honeybee to our Queen for breakfast tomorrow! Yes, sir. Maya was frightened and couldn’t sleep. In the middle of the night, she heard the guards talking outside. Get some sleep. You’ll need your strength when we storm that beehive tomorrow. You’re right. Ha ha ha! We’ll have ourselves a honeybee feast tomorrow! Are they talking about our beehive? Oh, no! Maya knew she had to think of something. I cannot sit back and let this happen! I must warn the queen! Just a little effort…just a little…a little more effort Maya pushed and wiggled until she made a little gap in the bars. Yes! I’m free! Your Majesty! We are in danger!!! What? Who’s in danger? What is it, child? We are all in terrible danger! What is going on? Your Majesty, the wasps mean to attack our beehive tomorrow! Are you sure? The wasps? When Maya finished telling her story, the Queen assembled her council at once. The following morning, an army of wasps approached the beehive. Attack!!! Attack the honeybees!!! Attack! Attack!!! The wasps’ shells were thick and strong, so they didn’t feel the honeybees’ stings. Puny little bees! Do you think you can win!? We are won! The honeybees refused to surrender. Fall back!! Retreat!! Troops, retreat!! We’ve won! Victory!!! Hurray! Hurray! We must remember that we owe our victory to
the courage of this little honeybee. If Maya had not risked her life to warn us, be
would have been crushed by the wasps for sure. Three cheers for Maya!!! Hurray!!! Maya grew up and became the Queen’s valued advisor She helped the queen rule the honeybees and protect their hive from enemies.

5 things ants can teach us about management | BBC Ideas


Ants and human societies
are similar in many ways. They live in communities numbering
from just a few individuals up to many millions. They can build vast empires
that span the world. They conduct diplomacy
with neighbouring settlements. And they can even go
to war with each other. All the ants have just one single
intent on their mind, and that’s the reproductive
success of the colony. Everything that they do is directed
towards that one aim. Most ant colonies consist of just
one reproductive individual – the queen –
and many non-reproductive workers. And the workers
are actually all female. So they’re a vast sisterhood
who does all the work. Now the title ‘queen’ seems to imply
some kind of political authority – that the queen is telling the workers
what to do at any one moment in time, but in fact it’s completely
self-organised. In a colony of ants,
there are no fixed managers. There are no CEOs or presidents. Everyone is working towards
the common goal. If one ant finds a trace of food, that ant will become,
in that moment, a leader, and get everyone else
to come into that food source. But the modern organisation
is obsessed with hierarchy. Obsessed with managers
and where you are up on the scale, which number or paygrade you are. And what happens is
lots of people lower down spend all their time trying to guess
what their manager wants, or their manager’s manager wants, rather than what’s going to work
for the organisation and the people they serve. When an ant encounters a food source,
for example, what it can do
on the way back to the colony is lay a trail using pheromones – and these are just chemicals
that they can lay on the ground so that when others ants come
along and encounter that trail, they know to follow it
all the way to the food. So this simple process
of positive feedback is surprisingly effective
at finding the shortest path. The idea,
borrowing from the ant world, of actually getting the data, making sure you’re capturing it from the very people
who are on the coalface, so to speak, makes tons of sense, because they’re the ones
with the rich qualitative data to be able to feed that back
into the decision-making. We have to be self-organised. We have to allow people to have
their own intelligence and wisdom and organize around a problem
or a project themselves, rather than always waiting for
someone else to tell them what to do, or for a three-year business
planning cycle to take effect. Just as ants respond immediately
to changes in their environment, say the diminishing
of a foraging patch, and adapt really quickly
to that change, organisations must be able
to do the same. If, by looking at ants for instance, it stimulates our thinking about how we might
try to do things differently, then that’s worth it
in and of itself. I just think you probably
want to start experimenting in a quite small and bounded way –
but yeah, why not? Thanks for watching. Don’t forget to subscribe and click the bell to receive notifications for new videos. See you again soon!

WASP 76b: Hot Jupiter Exoplanet that Rains Iron at Night

WASP 76b: Hot Jupiter Exoplanet that Rains Iron at Night


Hello Space Fans and welcome to another edition
of Space Fan News. In this episode astronomers at the European
Southern Observatory have observed an exoplanet that is tidally locked around it’s star
and because of this has extreme temperatures on the daytime and nighttime side. The temperatures are so hot that on the day
side, iron is a gas and at night that gas condenses into molten iron rain. It seems the more we look for and at exoplanets,
the stranger some of them become. We tend to be really focused on the Earth-like
ones because we like to fantasize that somehow, someday we could live on one of those. But Earth-like planets are elusive compared
to all the others that are out there and this week, astronomers using ESO’s Very large
Telescope and associated instruments have found a really strange exoplanet. The planet is called WASP-76b and it orbits
its star WASP-76 once every 1.81 days. That’s its year folks! The system is located some 640 light years
away in the areas of the sky bounded by the constellation Pisces. WASP-76b itself is what astronomers call a
hot-jupiter, meaning its about the size of jupiter and, well, it’s hot. It’s about1.8 times larger in radius than
Jupiter and is a little less massive (about .9 times the mass of Jupiter). Now a really large planet the size of Jupiter
going around it star once every couple of days is strange enough but because it’s
year is so short, that also means it’s pretty close to the star, which makes it very hot. Being so close also grabs it pretty strongly
to the star. WASP-76 is an F7 star that is about 1.7 times
bigger than our sun and 1.5 times as massive and because of all these factors, WASP-76b
is tidally locked to the star in its orbit around it. Tidally-locked means that the rate at which
the planet rotates matches its orbit around the star making one side of the planet always
facing the star and the other side facing away. So here we have a planet that’s way bigger
and more massive than Jupiter, going around an F7 star – which are known to, among other
things, emit large amounts of UV radiation – going around that star every couple of day
AND it has one side always facing the star and the other facing away… Well that’s a party where you know weird
stuff’s gonna happen. Astronomers looking at this system using ESO’s
VLT and specifically the spectral imager known as ESPRESSO, a fiber optics high resolution
spectrograph, and when they looked at the planet at various spots in the transit (that’s
the part where the planet passes between us and the star), on the day side of the planet
where temperatures were around 2400K, which means the daytime side of this star is comparable
to some of the cooler stars out there. Looking at the spectral images, they were
able to closely follow the neutral iron in the atmosphere as the daytime on the planet
progressed. Because different parts of the planet were
visible to us as the planet went around and correcting for all the motions of the planet
rotation and orbital motion, the team look at what was happening to the iron content
in the atmosphere. They noticed that when they could see more
of the daytime-side disk, they say more Iron and because we’re talking about 2400K, it
had to be gaseous. Then looking at the evening terminator as
it became less visible but was still there, the iron content went down and on the dark
side of the planet and the morning terminator, they couldn’t see any iron. So they concluded that since they could see
neutral iron on the dayside and the evening terminator, but not the nightside and the
morning terminator, the gaseous iron in the atmosphere condensed as it moved to the night
side (or the dark side as I like to say) and since the nighttime temps are still pretty
hot, of around 1600k, that’s still hot enough for iron to be a liquid. And it rains. Iron. Molten Iron. Here’s what they think that would look like. This is iron condensing into rain. This wasn’t in the paper but it makes me
wonder about the oceans on WASP-76b. Would need a helluva boat to sail on molten
seas. Or maybe it’s like a giant version of Mustafar
system in Star Wars. Who knows, we could have just found the birthplace
of Darth Vader. Alright enough of that. I want to thank all Deep Astronomy Patreon
Patrons who keep these episodes coming and I want to thank all of you for watching and
as always Keep Looking Up!

How do we know it rains IRON on WASP-76b?

How do we know it rains IRON on WASP-76b?


I’m sure we’ve all heard of exoplanets
where some pretty bizarre stuff goes on, like evaporating exoplanets, whose orbits have
taken them too close to their parent star. Or a planet orbiting a pulsar, likely to be
composed of crystalline carbon, which would be similar, but denser than diamond. However, a newly discovered exoplanet called
WASP-76b, discovered using ESO’s VLT, has been found to have a very special characteristic:
on this planet, temperatures are so hot that instead of water rain, it rains molten iron. How can this be? And how can researchers know this from an
object 640 light years away? Exoplanets are pretty difficult to detect. Most exoplanets are only observed when the
planet’s orbit is aligned just right so that it transits in front of its parent star
from our perspective. Any whose orbits don’t align with our perspective
are exceptionally hard to discover, so chances are that there’s a lot more out there in
our relatively near vicinity that we don’t know about. Exoplanets that are very close to their stars,
with very small orbits, are the easiest to discover, because we can see a very clear
pattern on the star’s light curve over a short period of time. WASP-76b is one such planet. Plus, it is huge, way bigger than Jupiter,
and combine this with the fact that it only takes 1.8 Earth days to make one orbit, it
made it comparatively easy to detect. But detecting the presence of an exoplanet
is one thing, how do astronomers know anything about its physical characteristics? Interestingly, the first thing astronomers
do is find out the physical characteristics of the parent star, WASP-76. The distance to the star is first determined,
and then the star is classified based on its brightness and colour. Knowing the distance helps us determine how
bright it is, and we measure its colour simply by observing it, which helps us determine
how hot it is. If the star is on the main sequence, then
this chart also helps us know the radius and mass of the star, as they all tend to follow
a pattern. Once we have that information, we can determine
the characteristics of the orbiting planet itself. Knowing the mass and radius of the star means
we can measure the mass of the orbiting planet using some clever equations, based on the
Law of Universal Gravitation. As it happens, WASP-76b is a super-Jupiter,
way bigger than our Jupiter. That means that although it is massive, this
mass is spread out across a large volume, likely making it a gas giant. Orbiting this close to the star means the
planet is probably tidally locked, only one side faces the star at any given time. Also, due to the proximity of the planet,
it orbits within the star’s atmosphere, the physics of which we really don’t understand
yet. However, the star facing side will be extremely
hot, estimated to be around 2,400°c, easily hot enough to vaporise metals. Models go on to suggest the night side is
about 1500°c, still blisteringly hot, but much cooler. To really find out what WASP-76b is made of
though, we need to go back to the light curve of the transit. Scientists look for differences in the light
when the planet passes in front of the star, as light from the star will shine through
the planet’s atmosphere. Certain atoms block certain wavelengths of
light, so any reduced wavelengths help us know what is in the atmosphere. This is known as spectroscopy. For WASP-76b, the biggest surprise that scientists
detected was an abundance of iron in the atmosphere! Based on what we know about the planet so
far, it seems like iron exposed to the day side of the planet is vaporised, where it
is transported through strong wind processes to the terminator line between the day and
the night side of the planet. Here, the temperature is low enough for the
iron the cool and condense, producing iron raindrops which fall deeper into the atmosphere. By the time the wind has reached the “morning”
side of the planet, iron can no longer be detected. This remarkable measurement, taken by the
ESPRESSO instrument on ESO’s VLT, is the first time variations have been spotted like
this on an ultra-hot gas giant. Although it probably won’t be the last time! So, there we have it. How it can rain iron on WASP-76b. I have no doubt we’ll be hearing about more
astonishing exoplanet discoveries in the future, there are a lot of missions that have either
launched or will be launched in the not too distant future, helping us get a better understanding
of the universe around us. So, if you enjoyed this video and want to

Coronavirus is Not an Excuse to Be Racist | Full Frontal on TBS

Coronavirus is Not an Excuse to Be Racist | Full Frontal on TBS


Tonight, we are going on a weird, wild journey
together, because due to the increasing threat of the coronavirus, we wanted to do the responsible
thing and not have an audience. Okay, we have some people, but they work for
us, and they’re sitting six feet apart as recommended by the CDC. And also because they hate each other. We considered using a laugh track tonight,
but unfortunately the only sound cues we had on hand were the woos from Saved By the Bell
when Zach Morris kissed Kelly Kapowski. We won’t have audience laughter, but we might have my laughter because my writers have added some jokes that I haven’t seen before. Starting now.
I’m Samantha Bee and I am responsible for twenty unsolved murders along the Florida
panhandle— Goddamnit, guys.
I told you that in confidence. Okay fine, the world is ending,
but let’s pretend we’re still gonna have an actual election in November. Who [BLEEP] knows!
Last night, six states voted in the Democratic primary. It was a big night for Joe Biden,
and a weird night for CNN. Bernie Sanders…
Not not not happening right now. Joe Biden Joe Biden is the winner of the Mississippi
primary. Joe Biden carries Mississippi. There we have it right. Ah. Right there. You can
see it. Maybe you can’t see it. Just [BLEEP] make a decision, Deep State! Looks like the crew from CNN is already working
from home. And I don’t blame them. With more than 100,000 cases of coronavirus
worldwide, many leaders are taking extreme but necessary
precautions. Schools in China have been closed for over
a month, Italy is on lockdown, and the governor of New York has ordered a containment zone
in Westchester county, where the state national guard is being deployed
to clean schools and deliver food. It sounds scary, but also like the opening
scene of a very topical porn. It’s where I get all my news. Meanwhile, our president is bravely… denying
anything is wrong. No, I’m not concerned at all. No, I’m not.
We’ve done a great job with it. We’re prepared and we’re doing a great job
with it. It will go away. Just stay calm, it will go
away. Be calm. It’s really working out and a lot
of good things are gonna happen. Anybody that needs a test gets a test. They’re
there. They have the tests. And the tests are beautiful. Rest assured, America: these tests are so
hot, you’ll wanna get them pregnant. That’s not true.
I wish I could knock up a test right now. But there aren’t any.
To date, the U.S. has tested fewer than 5,000 people for COVID-19, which is far behind other
developed countries. The White House is completely mishandling
this very real, very scary pandemic. Last week, the White House overturned the
CDC’s recommendation for seniors to avoid taking flights—a recommendation that would
have benefited a lot of senior citizens, except for my dad, who was this close to making it
into the mile high club. You’ll get there one day, Pops. You’re my hero.
But at least conservatives are… Oh my god. My dad’s gonna die. But at least conservatives are following the president’s terrifying spread of misinformation. And it is this virus which is caused by the Chinese, this Wuhan virus.
The Chinese coronavirus really is Chinese. China did this to the world.
The most encouraging thing is happening out of China who started this whole thing.
Yeah, exactly. The whole thing’s to show that their measures
at containing it have actually worked. Even though they started it and have yet to
apologize. China, we know it’s not your bad, but could
you please send Brian Kilmeade an Edible Arrangement so he’ll shut the [BLEEP] up? Tying coronavirus to China and Chinese people isn’t just a racist dog whistle.
It’s a whole racist orchestra. It’s a mighty mighty racist bosstone.
Which brings me to this important point: the coronavirus is not an excuse to be racist!
I know, I know. Racism is like America’s weighted blanket.
When everything is stressful, nothing makes us feel more secure than treating other people
like trash. At Columbia University, some dillhole wrote
on a blackboard that the library was a “Wuhan virus isolation area.” In Utah, the Shen Yun dance troupe was the victim of a rumor claiming they were carrying
the virus. That’s obviously not true. But if they were, they would carry it beautifully. Good woo! And at a Washington Costco, a worker handing out free samples told an eight-year-old boy
wearing a mask to get away from her because she thought he’d give her the coronavirus.
Are you kidding me? That tray of room-temperature ham samples
probably already has every other disease imaginable after sitting there getting groped by customers
all day. If anything, a little coronavirus might kill
the listeria. Oh right, we also have the sound cue from
growing pains when Boner’s parents kicked him out of the house. Guys, that sucks. Boner died. Sorry. I’m not even laughing. Across the country, fear of the disease is
taking a toll on Asian American-owned businesses. How has coronavirus impacted your business?
Tremendous. Lam says he’s lost 1.5 million dollars and
business is down around 50%. What do you think the reason is? The coronavirus, which is a scare to get infected by Chinese people. Holy shit. That is so stupid. Avoiding Chinese restaurants because you think
every Chinese person has coronavirus? That’s like not going to Ikea because you
think all Swedish people want to burn you alive in a bear suit. Which they do. The media’s use of stereotype-enforcing images can be just as damaging.
Major news outlets have repeatedly misused photos of Asian faces in masks to illustrate
stories about coronavirus, regardless of who or what the story is about.
That’s lazy. Especially because if they dug a little deeper
they’d see that there are dozens of photos of me on Getty wearing face masks that they
could be using. I don’t wear them because they’re effective.
I wear them because I like to try on new chins. Across the country, Asian Americans have been
the victims of racist attacks. In Los Angeles county, a sixteen-year-old
boy was beaten up so badly at school, he had to go to the hospital. In New York, a subway rider verbally harassed and sprayed Febreze on a man he believed to
be Asian. What the [BLEEP]?
The only person you should be afraid of in that situation is the guy who keeps Febreze
on him at all times. Whatever that Febreze is usually for, it is very bad. Businesses are also using fears of coronavirus
to deny service to Asian customers. This week in Plymouth, Indiana, this person
at this Super 8 denied a room to the two Hmong men filming this video. If you’re from China, I need to know. Because of the coronavirus going around. And
anyone from China, I am told, has to be picked up and quarantined for two weeks.
Wyndham hotels, who franchises Super 8, said they’re deeply troubled, and there’s no corporate
policy denying rooms to guests who are Chinese. No one should feel scared to stay there because
they’re Asian. They should feel scared to stay there because
they will probably be eaten out the ass by bed bugs. These aren’t rare, isolated incidents. They’re ubiquitous, dangerous, and so pervasive,
they’ve prompted a CDC official to warn that being Asian is not a risk factor for coronavirus.
Unfortunately, the CDC then had to declare that being Asian is a risk factor for getting
assaulted by racists. COVID-19 is scary, and it’s made even scarier
because our government is mishandling this crisis and conservative media is using Asian
people as scapegoats. The Trump administration is not going to save us. We have to take care of each other. It’s not okay to mistreat people out of fear and panic.
Especially when we’re doing so many other stupid things out of fear and panic. I have spent the last week stockpiling beans and making my own hand sanitizer out of bleach
and lube. Asterisk asterisk. Do not do that.

Don’t Mess With Texas: The Lone Star State’s Tussle with Trump’s Border Wall | Full Frontal on TBS

Don’t Mess With Texas: The Lone Star State’s Tussle with Trump’s Border Wall | Full Frontal on TBS


Welcome to the peaceful Rio Grande valley, located on the tip of Texas’s pendulous dong. Home to quiet border communities, pristine natural beauty, and a good ol’ fashioned Texas shit show! Where Trump’s diverting billions of
dollars from the military to build a 30-foot wall, crushin’ critters and grabbin’ private
property along the way! Yeehaw! Alright, let’s just get to it. Mexico is not paying for it,
but the wall is happening. This is ACLU lawyer David Donatti, whom I met in a wall with a giant hole in it. Look, it’s a freakin’ metaphor, people! Priority number one is construction
in the Rio Grande Valley. But in Texas, the vast majority of our border
lands is owned by private citizens. So Congress has empowered the administration
to do something called a quick take where they take the land,
they build the wall, and they can figure out just compensation later. That’s right, with a quick take— they just take your land, then tell you what they’ll pay for it. So how are Texans taking to government
workers showing up and saying their land’s being
quick tookened? Texas law gives me the right to shoot these people. This is Nayda Alvarez, peaceful border resident, spirited driver, and wannabee Banksy. So how did you end up graffitiing your own roof? You know, after Trump said
we’re building this wall, he comes over to the valley. And I say he’s gonna fly by, and he’s gonna see this. You know he can’t read, right? I just didn’t have a chance to put
my middle finger up there. Just for reference, that would
look something like this. Nayda’s been told that her backyard is
about to get an exciting new addition. The wall’s supposed to go a few feet from us. Just like right here? Yeah. The government has informed
Nayda that her property— which has been in her family for generations— is now condemned. And they’ve sent more than just letters. We had a pervert show up through there. Someone hired by the government. A government pervert? There’s a little camera over there that caught them. Very quickly— Nayda’s camera captured a posse
of trespassing surveyors. One of them spotted the camera
and began a strip-tease, and then… They claim that you threatened to shoot them. I never threatened to shoot anybody. What did you say? I told them I was going to beat
the shit out of them. Oh, okay. Those are two different things! But not everyone can defend
themselves as well as Nayda. That’s because some of them are butterflies. So tell me where we are. You’re at the National Butterfly Center in Mission, Texas. We’re a 100-acre botanical garden planted with host and nectar
plants for butterflies. Butterflies? Surely the Trump administration would want
to protect innocent little butterfl— Actually, no. The government sent contractors here. I found five workmen cutting down our trees. We had no notice. We had given no permission. And I said, you must not understand the three F’s. If you’re not feeding me, fucking me,
and financing me, I don’t listen to you. What if I’m f-interviewing you? You got five minutes. Wow, Texas ladies are tough. So why piss them off? Why take this land to begin with? Because in this part of Texas,
the border is the river, which is made up of a substance
scientists call water. So… What they’re actually doing is they have
to go about a mile inland. And a lot of the United States is actually
going to be behind the border wall. So to wall out foreigners, we just have
to wall out our own citizens. That’s exactly what’s happening. The position of Trump’s wall
will create a no man’s land. In Spanish they call this “tierra de nadie,” or, roughly translated, “we just gave land back to Mexico!” To speed the process, the Trump
administration has ignored dozens of environment regulations. They’re violating the Rivers and Harbors Act, the Clean Water Act, the Solid Waste Disposal Act, the Native American Graves Protection
and Repatriation Act. I’m sorry—they’re building it on
a Native American burial ground? All of this area was once inhabited
by our indigenous peoples, and their remains are throughout the region. On the bright side, it can’t get any worse! I’m kidding. Of course it can! The government’s border wall isn’t the only threat. In November, they started building a private wall
on the banks of the Rio Grande River. A team of Tinder swipe-lefts— yes, that’s Steve Bannon there— raised $20 million on a Go Fund Me, then joined forces with a pro-Trump contractor
to build their own privately funded wall. It’s illegal and stupid to build it
right on the flood plain, so they decided to build it
right on the flood plain. Behold, the private wall! All in here, in this bend in the river, there was hundreds of acres of just
natural riverbank habitat like that. Just wild habitat. Father Roy Snipes is a local priest with
property right next to the private wall. He took me on his boat to
show me what happens when racism meets industrial-
scale arts and crafts. We always thought, well, you couldn’t just bulldoze miles and miles of beautiful riverbank. You couldn’t do that. But they did it. What do you think Jesus would feel about this? That’s a good question. The real moral issue would be demonizing people
who are poor and just struggling to survive. I think you just captured
the entire GOP platform. So, one last question: how will this private wall then connect
to the government wall? Oh, it won’t. It will be a freestanding sculpture. Yep. The private wall will be walled
off by the wall wall, which will also wall off
U.S. territory and citizens, none of whom can really fight back. There’s no invasion. There’s no crisis. It’s just a big shit show that people believe up north. And Nayda would like to confront the emcee
of this shit show, Donald Trump. I would like to see him in the face. I’m telling you, you wouldn’t. I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t want to be alone
with me in the same room. Now that I would like to see. I bet you he’d run out like a chicken. I see an incredibly lucrative pay-per-view
opportunity in the future.

ALL of Spider-Man’s Girlfriends!

ALL of Spider-Man’s Girlfriends!


Okay, look. Spider-Man has dated around a whole lot and
I decided to take it upon myself to look through about six decades of comic books in order
to decode the massive web that is Peter Parker’s love life. Oh god. So in order to make this video not like an
hour long, we’re going to need to set up some ground rules because yeah, I’ve read
all of those same lists online and they are really not that good. It seems like they were written by some people
that read a few Wiki articles and called it a day. So here’s what we’ve have on the table. As always with this channel, I am ONLY going
to be talking about the mainstream Earth-616 continuity. Additionally, this is strictly going to focus
on women that Peter has had significant romances with in the comics, not just one off dates
or hookups. This means that no, I am not counting the
time that Peter went on a date with Carol Danvers or the time that he went on a date
with Sue Storm WHILE HE WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL. This also doesn’t include women that Peter
shared a single kiss with or women that just have crushes on him. So that means no Liz Allen, Officer DeWolfe,
or Silver Sable. Finally, even if Peter and his partner don’t
explicitly call each other boyfriend and girlfriend, I’m counting it if they spent a significant
amount of time together. I also reserve the right to mention love interests
that I just think are interesting because you know what? It’s my video. I THINK this covers all of my bases so people
won’t go in my comments saying “Um actually!”, but who am I kidding? People are going to anyway. But before we get too far into things, I want
to give a big thank you to our sponsor for today’s video, Manscaped, and yeah, I can
probably go into detail about The Lawn Mower 2.0 or The Plow or their other amazing products. However, I really want to say that the Crop
Preserver ball deodorant is amazing because at the time of this recording, it is summer
in Texas and this has saved my nether regions on more than one occasion. I think that it maybe might not be much of
a coincidence that last time I promoted these guys, I had a girlfriend and now I have a
fiancée. So if you want to get in on this for yourself
go ahead and go to Manscaped.com and make sure you use the code COMICD20 at checkout
for 20% off. The Perfect Package 2.0 includes everything
that you saw here and it is definitely worth the investment. I am a big fan of these products and you’re
going to be hearing about them a lot more in the future on this channel, but anyway. Back to the video. Peter’s first girlfriend was Betty Brant,
a secretary at the Daily Bugle. They hit it off when Peter checked in on her
after the Vulture attacked the office and just LOOK at Peter’s swag here. The two dated for a good while, but Betty
started to get jealous of Liz Allen, Peter’s former crush who started to actually develop
feelings of her own for Parker. Despite Peter having moved on from his obsession
with Liz and repeatedly explaining to Betty that he wasn’t interested in her, Betty’s
jealousy ended up being too much and she broke up with Peter to start dating a Daily Bugle
reporter named Ned Leeds who she would eventually marry. Fun fact, Peter and Mary Jane (who I will
of course be talking about later in the video) were best man and maid of honor respectively
at Betty and Ned’s wedding. Anyway, it’s probably for the best that
Peter and Betty didn’t keep dating considering that Brant was really looking for a steady
guy who worked a good, non dangerous job. If they stayed together then Peter would never
be able to tell her that he was Spider-Man and keeping a secret that big is SUPER unhealthy
for a relationship. Yet, they stayed close friends well into adulthood. With Betty out of the picture, Peter was free
to date once again and now that he had moved on to college, this would be the perfect opportunity. On his first day of school, Peter’s Aunt
May got sick and was hospitalized. He was completely oblivious to the world around
him and his new classmates thought that he was stuck up as a result. This included a beautiful woman named Gwen
Stacy. However, Gwen saw this cold shoulder as a
challenge and frequently flopped between fawning over Peter and hating him. Now ever since high school, Aunt May kept
trying to set Peter up with their neighbor’s niece, Mary Jane Watson, but Peter kept avoiding
the meetup. For years, Mary Jane was a punchline in the
comics. She was just this unseen background character
until she finally showed up and delivered that iconic line. “Face it, tiger. You just hit the jackpot.” From here, Gwen and MJ would both casually
date Peter and his best friend / roommate, Harry Osborn, but over time, Mary Jane ended
up getting more serious with Harry and Parker did the same with Gwen. Sadly, Gwen’s father was killed after saving
a kid from rubble that fell during a fight between Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus and
she briefly moved to London while she was in mourning. Now here’s where things get a little bit
tricky. In 2004, there was an infamous storyline called
Sins Past which added some really… weird stuff to this situation. See, it turns out that before leaving for
London, Gwen had actually hooked up with Harry Osborn’s father, Norman A.K.A. the Green
Goblin all while in the middle of dating Parker. Peter and Gwen specifically didn’t do the
deed, but yep, she and Gobby definitely did, with the act resulting in Gwen becoming pregnant
with twins that also had an accelerated growth rate due to Norman’s mutated genetics. Because comics. Gwen had the children while she lived abroad
and they were stolen by Norman, but the rest of that story is probably better saved for
another video. With all of that out of the way, Gwen moved
back to New York and resumed her relationship with Peter until she was tragically kidnapped
by Norman, now retconned to be after her because of the threat that she posed to him regarding
their children. This led to one of the most important moments
in all of Spider-Man’s history with Green Goblin tossing Gwen off of a bridge and Spidey
trying to save her, but because of a miscalculation, the sudden jolt of Gwen being grabbed by Spider-Man’s
webbing resulted in her neck being snapped. This tragedy stuck with Peter, but he grew
closer with Mary Jane who was there to comfort him during this trying time. Also going through a rough time was MJ’s
boyfriend, Harry, due to his father seemingly being killed during the same confrontation
with Spider-Man. Because of this, Harry became obsessed with
killing Spider-Man and as a result, pushed Mary Jane away which only brought her closer
to Peter. They finally got serious and Pete actually
proposed to her which she rejected. Yeah, the two of them have been pretty on
and off for years, especially since MJ couldn’t always handle Parker’s life as Spider-Man
which she had known about since before they even met so of course, we will be back. In between flings with Mary Jane, Peter dated
a woman named Cissy Ironwood who I’m sure you’ve never never heard of and for good
reason. She pretty much only existed to be some random
girl that Peter casually went out with only to get attacked by Doctor Strange who was
a werewolf at the time. Because comics. She showed up just a little bit more only
to ditch Parker in order to hit on The Beast who was visiting campus. Then there’s Debra Whitman, a secretary at
the university when Peter was a teacher’s assistant. She was instantly into Peter, but he was too
busy to really notice her. They did end up casually dating later, but
Peter was like the worst to her. He was constantly bailing on Deb because of
Spider-Man related activities, he wouldn’t use his newspaper contacts in order to help
her uncle who was being threatened, and Peter instantly forgot about her when he saw that
his new neighbor was hot. I mean look at this. “Oh, yeah. Got a date with Debbie. Deborah what’s-her-name. Whitman.” Dude, Deb was so good to Peter that he once
dropped by her apartment completely unannounced when he was in pain after a fight. Naturally, Debra let Peter stick around, nursed
him back to health, and even made him a big ass breakfast. Did Peter say thank you or even EAT the breakfast? NO! When Parker finally started to take notice
of Debra, it was too late because she was dating a jock named Biff Rifkin, a man with
the most jock sounding name imaginable. Even while she was dating Biff, Debra was
still super into Peter, but things got a bit complicated when she started to figure out
that he was Spider-Man, but her therapist wrote it off as schizophrenia. In an unusual approach, the therapist sought
out Peter and asked him to pretend to be Spider-Man so that he could reveal his identity to Debra,
hoping that this unorthodox shock therapy would snap her out of her “delusion”. Although Parker initially refused, he came
around to the idea which… actually worked. This was also the push that Debra needed to
leave town and finally divorce her abusive husband back home, which yeah, it turns out
was also a thing that was going on in her life. We didn’t see much more of Debra until Civil
War when Peter publicly revealed his identity, prompting her to write a book called “Two
Faced: How Peter Parker Ruined My Life”. Little harsh, but considering that the publisher
(owned by the Daily Bugle because of course it is) had her embellish the truth, but part
of me feels like canceling Peter is at least a LITTLE justified considering just how he
treated Deb. But hey, at least he never hit her like he
did Mary Jane that one time which YEAH, that actually happened. Now much more importantly of Parker’s relationships
is Felecia Hardy A.K.A. Black Cat. She’s a cat burglar who flirted and made out
with Spider-Man a bit, but not much else. However, after tussling a couple of times,
she promised to go straight, albeit after one last job. When that didn’t work out, she decided to
be extra extra and exclaimed that she would rather die than go to jail. Bye, Felecia. Of course, this didn’t stick and when Black
Cat finally came back around, she and Spider-Man started dating proper and even became crime
fighting partners. While all of this was going well, Felecia
made it very clear that she was attracted to Spider-Man and not Peter Parker. This was a big reversal of the normal problems
that his relationships brought, but it did end up being an issue though and the two broke
up as a result. Of course, Peter and Mary Jane are definitely
soulmates so they ended up getting back together, Peter proposed a second time, they got married,
almost had a kid when Mary Jane got pregnant, was poisoned, and had a stillbirth. Wow… that got really dark. Oh, but just you wait. It gets darker. See, MJ was seemingly killed in a plane explosion,
but in all actually, she was kidnapped by a stalker. Yep. Now during this time of apparent death, Peter
had another love interest. As Gwenpool would say “Remember that time
you dated Gwen Stacy’s cousin? Because I do! I remember all of that.” Jill Stacy moved to New York and became friends
with Peter and MJ, getting so close that she ended up actually becoming Mary Jane’s BEST
friend. Oh, and she canonically looks like Gwen Stacy,
but with black hair. There were some romantic hints with Peter,
but that was it. However, following MJ’s apparent death,
Jill started getting uncomfortably close with Peter, making some pretty obvious moves. Let me make this very clear. Jill Stacy started catching Peter, the ex-boyfriend
of her dead cousin, on the rebound when his wife seemingly died who also happened to be
her best friend. Now that is some soap opera level nonsense! Things never got too serious between them
since Peter was wrapped up with mourning his dead wife because yeah, of course, but once
Peter rescued MJ from her stalker, Jill basically vanished from comics as a whole, even though
Peter and Mary Jane separated immediately afterwards. Peter and Mary Jane’s relationship was all
over the place with it ultimately ending when they made a literal deal with the devil and
sold their marriage to the demon, Mephisto, in order to save a dying Aunt May in the infamous
storyline “One More Day”. Instantly following this new timeline, Peter
met a forensic scientist named Carlie Cooper, the best friend of Harry Osborn’s new girlfriend,
but as he was distracted by his newly ex-girlfriend via demon, Mary Jane, who was also at the
party, this didn’t go anywhere. I swear to god, this is going to be important
later since they do end up dating, but first, we need to take a really weird and complicated
detour. Okay so one of my favorite comic writers,
Jason Aaron, wrote this mini series about Spider-Man and Wolverine being hurled through
time after a group of bad guys were robbing Time Diamonds from a bank. Because comics. As a part of this, a woman named Sara Bailey,
one of the bank’s tellers, got mixed up in the time travel shenanigans as well. It’s not really dived into much since most
of the book revolves around Spidey and Wolverine’s dynamic, but when the three of them got trapped
in the old west, Peter and Sara ended up having a serious relationship, complete with that
classic act of carving their initials into a tree. Peter was actually going to propose to Sarah
with an inert Time Diamond, but it reactivated and sent everyone back to the beginning of
this whole time nonsense at the bank. After stopping the robbers, Peter wanted to
resume his relationship with Sara, but she didn’t remember anything that happened,
just Peter and Logan. Cut to a sad shot of Peter sitting against
the tree that he had carved into which was miraculously still standing years later and…
that’s all we heard about things. Kind of underwhelming, but this is still canon. Okay, back to Carlie. She and Peter officially start dating when
he asked her out… at a Halloween party while she was dressed as his ex-girlfriend, the
Black Cat. Honestly, their dynamic was really cute. She’s into roller derby and tries to teach
Peter, but because he needs to pretend to not have super powers, he intentionally fails
in a spectacular fashion. Oh, she also got drunk one time and got a
Spider-Man tattoo. During an event called Spider-Island, Carlie
ended up getting spider powers along with most of Manhattan and Peter even pretended
like he just got them as well. However, Carlie noticed that he was suspiciously
really good at using these powers and started to put two and two together. After everything went back to normal, Carlie
confronted Peter with this revelation and broke up with him on the spot for having lied
to her this entire time. Considering that his double life as Spider-Man
is why they broke up, that tattoo must be REALLY awkward. Yeah, so after this, Peter’s love life was
practically non-existent. Not like he’d have much time to date anyway
since he and his long time enemy, Doctor Octopus, swapped bodies. So yeah, this next relationship doesn’t
REALLY count since it wasn’t Peter’s consciousness, but people would get mad at me in the comments
if I didn’t at least blaze through it super quick. Anna-Maria Marconi is a brilliant scientist
that Otto started dating when he enrolled back in college since he was pissed that Peter
had never gotten his doctorate. The two hit it off and had an obnoxiously
cute relationship to the point where Ock actually intended to propose to her. Of course, Peter eventually got his body back
and was immediately really bad at keeping his alter-ego a secret from Anna-Maria. Parker did come clean both about being Spider-Man
and the entire body swap thing so naturally, their relationship had to end since Anna-Maria
literally fell in love with a different person. To make things more complicated, Peter released
a woman named Cindy Moon from a bunker almost immediately after getting his body back. She was bitten by the same radioactive spider
as Peter and is a special Spider-Totem called “The Bride”. As a part of this, she and Peter have a compulsive
need to hook up whenever they’re in the vicinity of each other which obviously made things
really awkward for Anna-Maria who was still living with Peter. Cindy ended up getting her own super persona,
Silk, and grew into a solid character in her solo books which basically had her strike
out on her own away from Peter and really, outside of being a spider character, she has
nothing to do with the Spider-Man series as a whole. Moving on, when Doc Ock was in charge of Peter’s
body, he created a company called Parker Industries. Well this ended up getting insanely successful
and the company went international. For a time, Peter was dating Lian Tang, an
engineer from Parker Industries Shanghai who helped design a super high tech Spider-Mobile. This was great and all until it was revealed
that Lian was also working for the terrorist organization, Zodiac, and was feeding them
information in exchange for cancer medication for her dying mother. When she was found out, Parker gave her a
second chance at the company, but obviously their relationship ended as quickly as it
started. Also working with Parker Industries was Bobbi
Morse A.K.A. Mockingbird who was the company’s liaison
to S.H.I.E.L.D. Peter eventually asked her out with ZERO game,
leading to Aunt May of all people having to step in. It’s crazy that throughout all of his history,
Mockingbird is like the only superhero that Spidey ever dated and it was actually pretty
cool that they occasionally fought crime together. When Parker Industries eventually shut down,
Bobbi let Peter crash at her place and even sleep in her infamous “Ask me about my feminist
agenda” shirt. Eventually though, Peter being a complete
loser got on Bobbi’s nerves and they broke up after realizing that they really had nothing
in common. Finally, I know this is kind of a low note
to end on, but this brings us to Rebecca London, a comedian that Spidey rescued who asked him
out by throwing her business card at him. Easily the best part of this is when Spider-Man
showed up to their date in his costume, but like with a suit jacket over it. There’s really not really much more to this
considering that Peter was busy with superhero stuff and Rebecca got a boyfriend in the meantime,
but I wanted you to see the double spider suit so you’re welcome. At the time of this recording, Peter and Mary
Jane are back to the status quo and are happily together and I REALLY hope that it sticks
because I do not want to have to make this video again after the literal weeks that I
have spent researching all of this nonsense. But if you liked this video then why not consider
subscribing, or even watching another one? And if you want to know about Peter’s web-shooters
(the actual ones, not a euphemism) then check out the video that I did all about them. I gave the same level of obsessive detail
in that as I did on this one. And also, I do want to give a big thank you
to the voice cast that I had on this video. It’s a lot better than me trying to pretend
to be multiple characters, especially ones that are different genders from me. I went ahead and gave all their credits down
there in the description below. But anyway, I hope you learned at least a
little something new, and hopefully, I’ll see you next time.

Deepest State | Full Frontal with Samantha Bee | TBS


[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
– Hi. I’m Samantha Bee. Welcome to “Full Frontal.” Ever since voters invited
a bunch of state-smashing, wall-building, America
first, Breitbart afficionados to slither out of their
swamp and run the country for a while, we’ve been
introduced to so much of their subculture’s
fascinating slang, one angry, insomniac rage tweet at a time. This week we learned yet
another cool, new phrase. See if you can spot it. We’ve been warning you about
the deep state, Obama holdover government bureaucrats, who
are hell bent on destroying this president. We’re talking about
the intelligence community deep state. The deep state bureaucracy
and the deep state media. REPORTER: –left-wing
deep state forces. Deep state conspiracy. The deep state
that we talk about– they’re out for blood. The deep state is so deeply
buried in its deep-y deepness, Sean Hannity had to pull it
from the depths of his ass. [LAUGHTER] Just to be clear, that was
the nation’s number one cable “news station,” mainstreaming
one of the far right and far left’s favorite
conspiracy fever dreams straight into our president’s
gullible eye holes. PAUL SPERRY: His main
concern right now is Obama. I mean, the guy set up a
bunker just down the street from the White House. He’s got a mansion. He’s got offices. He’s got the shadow White House,
JUST within two miles of Trump. Obama could spark something on
the order of a civil war here. God, you guys get
so upset every time a black guy moves into
the wrong neighborhood. [LAUGHTER] The deep state is like polio. It exists, just not
in America right now. The deep state, the term,
comes from Turkey and Egypt. It’s from authoritarian
context, and it usually refers to groups that perform
false flag operations, assassinate people. The deep state is an alt-right
term, which is misapplied. It’s a security apparatus
that actually runs the state, and the democracy
is just a fig leaf. Trump is trying to
blame any of his failures on this sort of
shadowy bureaucracy. It’s a very dark
view of what are, effectively, career bureaucrats. Career bureaucrats
who are thrilled to finally have something
interesting to put on their JDate profiles. Turkey and Egypt have
shadowy government assassins. America’s sinister junta
is an insubordinate park ranger tweeting that
climate change is real. Traitor! Purge her! When asked if the White House
really sees this deep state as a threat, Sean
Spicer took a break from slowly disintegrating
before our eyes to share his deep thoughts. I don’t think it should
come as any surprise that there are people that
burrowed into government during eight years of
the last administration and may have believed
in that agenda, and want to continue to seek it. “Burrowed into government.” He wants you to believe
that these rogue, deep state infiltrators are poison-blooded
mole people, and not just bland paper pushers who lucked into
a government job with benefits. But contrary to a President
Trump’s unofficial security briefings, the
federal bureaucracy is not a left wing shadow
government run from the Obamas’ kitchen in Kalorama. Federal employees
are almost evenly split between Republicans
and Democrats. The other 16%, of course,
are area 51 employees, who have different political
parties on their home planet. Wake up, sheeple. If federal employees
are chatting on signal more than usual,
it’s because they’re terrified. Think of them as passengers on
a bus that’s now being driven by a feral, paranoid monkey. They’re not trying to kick
him out of the driver’s seat. They know we chose the
monkey to be the bus driver because Hillary Clinton
used email and was a woman, and they respect that. They’re just trying to
turn the wheel slightly, while the monkey
is masturbating, so we don’t run over a cliff. And frankly, even the monkey
should be in favor of that. By the way, some experts
say that the problem isn’t necessarily that
the state is so deep. It’s that Trump’s talent
pool is so shallow. Well, the cool thing
about the government is, it gives you an option, if
you’re the new administration, for putting your
stamp on the agencies, which is to put your
people in the agencies– to appoint a Secretary,
an Undersecretary, a Deputy Undersecretary. President Trump’s
administration, largely, has not done that. You can’t really blame these
agencies for resisting you, or blame a deep
state, if you haven’t put your own people in to
actually run the agencies, yet. There are, what,
about 2,000 jobs, political appointees, that
have still not been filled. Look, those jobs
will get filled. Just as soon as Mike
Flynn and Rudy Giuliani get busy cranking
out some more sons. Until then, there’s
nobody running the shop. The intelligence agencies are
leaking like Nana’s depends after three pots of
Sanka, and it’s driving team Trump clinically insane. Donald Trump is the victim. His campaign is the victim. His transition
team is the victim. His surrogates are the victim. Yeah. Why can’t a white male
billionaire with an army ever catch a fucking break? [LAUGHTER] Panicked hyperbole aside,
I agree that things are not going awesome. It’s not healthy for
a country’s president and intelligence
apparatus to be fighting like the Real Housewives. But perhaps we should
consider these leaks the phlegm of democracy. [COUGH] They’re a sign that
something is very wrong, yes, but also that your
system is fighting it, just the way it’s supposed to. What’s more troubling
is that the deep state can be whatever the person
in power wants it to be. The deep state is Barack Obama
wire-tapping Trump’s microwave, and it’s the agencies who can’t
find evidence of the tapping. It’s anyone who ruins Donald
Trump’s perfect presidency by sabotaging him in the press. It’s the analysts whose
facts disagree with his. It could even be
the universities that churn out operatives
for the secret state within a state. OK, confession. I, myself, am a
proud alumna of Deep State, where I
majored in Un-American Activities and Spanish. I even lettered in
date rape self-defense. Still got my jacket. Go Fighting Moles! [SHOUTING AND CHEERING] [APPLAUSE] There’s my Deep Staters. There they are. [WHOOPING] What do you say, fellas? We gonna beat Electoral
College this year? [GRUNTING] Clear eyes, dark
arts, can’t lose. We’ll be right back. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] [MUSIC PLAYING]
