NOTABLE TV MOMENTS IN THE YEAR OF TRUMP

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Justin Theroux in The Leftovers, whose three seasons were the most audaciously imagined, brilliantly written and beautifully acted work Johanna Schneller has ever seen. (BEN KING/HBO) Facebook Login/Register With: Advertisementcenter_img Advertisement Late Night Comedians: By doing astute takedowns of Trump, Stephen Colbert surged ahead, as did Seth Meyers. Trevor Noah found his voice. Samantha Bee stepped fully into her role as avenger of female anger. But the most interesting change, for me, was the politicization of Jimmy Kimmel, as he cited his infant son Billy’s heart problems as a plea to keep the Affordable Care Act. I knew it would be bad, but it is worse than I thought. U.S. President Donald Trump and his gang of thieves are real-life versions of Dr. Evil’s henchmen, sitting in their underground lair, rubbing their hands together as they cackle, “Let’s kill elephants!” and “Let’s make the lowest-income people pay for tax breaks for the highest!”Television in 2017 is arguably the best it’s ever been, but the things I watched that affected me the most all seemed to relate, one way or another, to what was happening in the White House and how that impacted North America’s psyche.Trump Himself: There were a couple of funny moments. Melania slapping Donald’s hand away. The Mooch. Angela Merkel shrugging after the handshake that wasn’t. Anthony Atamanuik’s eerily accurate impression on The President Show, which captures that unfillable maw of need at Trump’s core. Trump slurring “God blesh the Uni-ed Shash,” because he was too vain to take a sip of water. There was even one heartwarming moment: the December night that Alabama did not vote for alleged pedophile Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. But as the year wore on, I felt like my soul was being dragged over broken glass and I lost my sense of humour. There were so many low points, but the lowest had to be Trump’s post-Charlottesville Nazi march news conference. “On many sides” is a phrase that will live in infamy.Jimmy Kimmel is keeping the pressure on U.S. politicians, appearing on his late-night show with son Billy in his arms, writes Johanna Schneller.  (RANDY HOLMES/ABC)   Twitterlast_img read more
