Thursday Throwdown: Hillary Clinton & Condoleeza Rice Lie with Jon Stewart
Thursday Throwdown is FREE on Thanksgiving
This Thanksgiving, Thursday Throwdown (your dose of midweek media madness) is free to all, but don’t worry, it’s just as terrible as ever. Secretaries of state Hillary Clinton and Condoleeza Rice went on The Problem with Jon Stewart to continue their lies of the wars, destruction, slave trade, and terrorism they helped sponsor.
And it’s safe to say we now have a problem with Jon Stewart.
After a career of calling out the US war machine for its lies and illegal invasions, Stewart suddenly chooses not to challenge any claims made by Clinton or Rice, instead giving them a new platform to prop up the military industrial complex, only further enriching themselves.
We watch (too much of, perhaps?) the hero-tanking interview and, as Useful Idiots do best, mock them as much as humanly possible.
And speaking of trailblazing women, MSNBC salutes feminist icon Nancy Pelosi by talking only about her clothes and superficial actions. We make fun of them too.
It’s our Thursday mini-episode. Let us know in the comments what corporate media monologues, interviews, or anything else you want to see on the next Thursday Throwdown.
Enjoy this free edition, and tune back to substack tomorrow for part 2 of the Norman Finkelstein interview.
