SNL with nothing on Weinstein?
Gutless.

Ali @ali
SNL is trash. Gives Harvey Weinstein a pass.
We've found our Goliath. Grab your sling.

Inna desilva @InnaDesilva
Even SNL does not mention Harvey Weinstein sex scandal . Hmm.

Jordan @awake283
Not a single mention of Harvey Weinstein on #SNL . Ridiculous. Spineless.

Dr. Schadenfreude @PoliticsOfFear
Tonight’s Weekend Update brought to you by Harvey Weinstein. #SNL

Chet Cannon ✔@Chet_Cannon
Zero mention of Harvey Weinstein on SNL/Weekend Update. ZERO. Cowards
Women accused Trump of sexual harassment and you punished him with your vote.

Your post rings so badly hollow lol.

It does seem like the newest group of late-night hosts (Kimmel, Myers, etc.) is a LOT more left-leaning liberal than those we've had in the past. And just more political, period.
Craig Ferguson ... you're missed!!! Come back! And you were the funniest.

So, explain to me, if they are 'Americans', why they have a separate taxing authority, separate tax collections, and are considered 'foreign debt'?

Racism?

Easy... Puerto Rico is a Territory, not a State. But every one of the people living there are Americans. Just like you. If they move to the states. They don't have to get a green card or anything. They would just be an american, living in a new location. Same as if you moved to Puerto Rico. You would be just like every other American living there.

Question for those that like to Trot out the picture of San Juan's Mayor waist deep in water. What exactly is she doing and how is it helping? Seriously?

I'm going to help!!! I'm going to go wading in the water. Look at me I'm helping!!!

They have dual citizenship, as of March of this year. They refer to themselves as Puerto Ricans, not Americans.

If people ask me I am an Idahoan. I used to be a Floridian, then a Texan. For the sake of conversation, people don't often refer to themselves as American unless specifically asked what country they are from.
Virginia is a commonwealth-still American.

Some new England state does a lot of things by town hall meeting-still American.

‘SNL’ creator Lorne Michaels reveals why his show ignored Harvey Weinstein scandal – TheBlaze

Quote:
Lorne Michaels, creator of “Saturday Night Live,” revealed Sunday the reason his show ignored a major news story from last week.

The comedians on “Saturday Night Live” almost always satirically cover the major stories of the week. But over the weekend, one of the biggest recent news stories went noticeably uncovered: the sexual harassment scandal surrounding Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein.

Upon leaving the show’s after party early Sunday morning, a reporter from the Daily Mail asked Michaels why the show ignored the Weinstein story. Michaels essentially confirmed everyone’s suspicions.

“It’s a New York thing,” Michaels said, likely referring to the fact that Weinstein is a New York liberal.

it is hypocritical of a trump supporter to go on about sexual harassment, grasshopper

he was fired from his own company and many actresses have said how horrible this revelation is. some news commenters mentioned it today ; their news has been filled with nursing home ready trump
