Watch late night take on Trump’s stupid and hateful and POINTLESS transgender rules

HEY.

And even fellow Republican, Caitlyn Jenner, has a “HEY!” for Donald Trump.

In other late night bits, Seth Meyers takes on the Vacationer-In-Chief’s golf habit and those contentious town halls.

In the war on the First Amendment news

CPAC, the conservative conference that has been happening this week (and where, hilariously, Trump supporters have been waving tiny Russian flags), has been the administration’s favorite new place to attack the media.

First, Steve Bannon said that Trump’s war on the media is “not only not going to get better, it’s going to get worse — every day,” and that, “Every day it is going to be a fight.” He called the media the “opposition party” again, and he suggested that somehow “The Media” had taken the country away from the conservatives as if 1. that’s a thing that is possible and 2. the country fucking belongs to any one group.

Then Trump spoke at CPAC today where he spent the first fifteen minutes of his speech railing against the free press, and calling them the “enemy of the people” again, adding:

They are because they have no sources. They make them up when there are none. ‘Nine people have confirmed’ one report says. I said ‘Give me a break.’ They make up sources. They are very dishonest people.

They shouldn’t be allowed to cite sources unless they use somebody’s name. Let their name be put out there. Let them say it to my face. Let there be no more sources. There are some great reporters around, who are honest. But there are some terrible dishonest reporters who do a great disservice to our people. They should put names in the stories.

You look at CBS, ABC, NBC. These polls are so bad and inaccurate. It creates a false narrative. We have to fight it. They are very smart, cunning and dishonest. It’s a sensitive topic. They get upset when we expose their false stories. They always bring up the First Amendment. No one loves it better than me. Who uses it more than I do? But it gives it to all Americans to speak freely. It gives me the right to criticize fake news strongly.

The media has an obligation to report honestly, but the ‘fake news’ doesn’t tell the truth. I say that the ‘fake news’ doesn’t represent the people, and it never will.

“Pres. Trump concluded his remarks about the news media by saying ‘we must do something about it.’”

“We must do something about it.” So, those are the most chilling words on this issue yet! Can’t wait to see what next week brings on this super-fun-not-at-all-terrifying front!

Update: CNN, The New York Times, Politico, Buzzfeed and the Los Angeles Times has been banned from today’s White House Press Briefing. HOLY SHIT THIS IS NOT OK. Time and the AP boycotted in protest.

Hey remember those incriminating CNN tapes James O’Keefe released yesterday? Here’s what we learned from them: CNN believes in science and climate change and not in creationism; they think Fox News is “unbearable”; they believe the fundamental role of a journalist is to “tell what’s going on”; and they don’t think that Rasmussen polls are not worth the toilet paper they’re printed on. SCANDAL!!!!

CNN might not go to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. GEE, WHY.

Hey, Bill Maher? I wouldn’t be trying so hard to take credit for the downfall of Milo if I were you, pal.
