LYRICS:
Franken says if he was still in the Senate, he'd press Kavanaugh in two key areas
I bet he would. Thanks, Ed.


Our top story tonight: The President's tweeting
We'll dispel the silly notion we're deliberately misleading
Plus, people are outraged at Starbucks holiday cup
More on the fiery backlash as the program picks up


Huh. Who's outraged? The world is embittered!
No, really, who's outraged? Two people on Twitter…
Look, we want to disprove the president's tweets
Maybe no holiday cups? I see what you mean…


Again, our top story: Enemy of the people?
Trump's ridiculous claims that we view you as sheeple
Plus, people are outraged at Starbucks unity cups
The latest on the angry backlash and why some are fed up


If 72 percent of people think what we do's misleading
Isn't playing up an outrage just a bit self-defeating?
I know that we've honed in on what's good for ratings
But enough with the cups! I won't keep them waiting


Deadly protests in Nicaragua with Ortega in charge
What the latest crackdown means for the region at large
Plus, people are outraged at Starbucks new mug
The furious backlash of this frightful jug


And, of course, our top story: A White House deranged?
CNN's Jim Acosta in a testy exchange
And so we don't lose your trust, we'll sit silent, alone
And go straight to an eyewitness live on the phone


Well Jim Acosta asked a question right at the start
It was a great question, astutely stated, really quite smart
As a journalist we love the truth declared to imposters
And your name for the record? Jim Acosta


Finally tonight, we leave on a note that is somber
As noun verb outraged preposition—someone put the template in the prompter…
Preposition Starbucks adjective noun
Preposition verb backlash pronoun…

    I am OUTRAGED that this FAKE VIDEO would dare suggest that my OUTRAGE is not justified.

  • Cynical Asshole||

    I'm OUTRAGED that you would be OUTRAGED at a Remy video. THAT MAN IS A NATIONAL TREASURE! /sarc (but about the last part - Remy is awesome)

  • Scarecrow Repair & Chippering||

    Yes he is. But I won't admit that publicly, because I am OUTRAGED that you would admit it publicly even though you are OUTRAGED than I am OUTRAGED.

  • ||

    Well done.

    Jim Acosta. Lol. He's well captured here.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Rage out!

  • Diane Reynolds (Paul.)||

    Remy goes alt-right by making fun of using Twitter as a source.

    Twitter is the sourciest source that's ever been a source.

  • Scarecrow Repair & Chippering||

    Use the source, Luke!

    May the Source be with you.

  • Paulpemb||

    You have the ring, and I can see your Source is as big as mine! Now let's see how well you handle it.

  • Colossal Douchebag||

    In Sourcetown.

    With an electronic sourcing machine.

    While the "Been There" Colorado Starbucks mug creates a blue-and-green mountainous scene with trees, a river, kayakers and wildlife, one symbol does exactly the opposite, a few Coloradans have said on Twitter.

    That symbol is an oil rig, also called an oil drill, and it appears on the mug three times.

    And, appropriately, the thing actually depicted on the mug three times is an oil derrick or pumpjack, not a rig or a drill.

  • Cynical Asshole||

    Surely you're not suggesting that people are OUTRAGED on Twitter over something that they know nothing about and haven't even done the minimal amount of research into whatever's pushing their OUTRAGE button today? I'm OUTRAGED that you would even suggest such a thing! It's OUTRAGEous! I CAN'T EVEN WITH YOU RIGHT NOW! /sarc

  • Scarecrow Repair & Chippering||

    And now I am more OUTRAGED than I was before. This is simply OUTRAGEOUS! But my capslock key is threatening to break, so I will have to limit my OUTRAGE.

  • Chipper Morning Baculum||

    Very nice. I like it when Remy raps. I wish it was a bit longer. But great job nonetheless.

  • ||

    I wish it was a bit longer.

    I'm of a split mind. I agree that it should be longer but it's essentially a 3rd installment of "You're watching CNN." Not to put Remy down, he's still funnier, more relevant, and possibly even more musically talented than Weird Al ever was but eventually he's either going to run out of material (on CNN) or it's just going to stop being funny.

  • Scarecrow Repair & Chippering||

    Where is OUTRAGE when it is needed?!?!??

  • Dillinger||

    >>I wish it was a bit longer.

    paging Michael Scott

  • Dillinger||

    very funny.

  • Quo Usque Tandem||

    I'm outraged with all of you, so cave in already and accommodate my outrage.

    More tomorrow.

  • ||

    Spot on as always. Long live Remy.

    As Saddam Hussein might put it, the Mother of all Outrages will come when Mueller and Trump have their HIGH NOON AT THE OK CORRAL VALENTINE'S DAY MASSACRE TO THE Nth. POWER moment.

    Listening to Rush Limbaugh's monologue today, I realized how a Republican consensus might soon be reached that concludes that, yes, the Mueller Russia probe was a farce, a hoax, and a completely partisan political witch hunt right out of the gate. As such it is crap, Flush it.

    The special prosecutor was basically appointed by Rob Rosenstein to be the avenging angel of a deeply angry Democrat Party once Hillary lost. The reason Rosenstein redacts the blue blazes out of all documents that relate to the egregious abuse of the FISA court process and the concurrent policy choice that Republicans and Trump associates ONLY should be targeted for rigorous investigation most nasty is because Rosenstein knows this attempted seditious coup was his personal doing. He therefore intends to treat all the facts relating to it as his personal information.

    The Democrat media near-monopoly will defend Rosenstein, Mueller, Comey, Strzok, Clapper, Brennan and the rest to the last barricade. We will see astonishing pinnacles of propaganda artfulness and misdirection achieved, and then surpassed.

    Rush also speculated that the infamous Steele memo was not Russian in origin after all, but an in-house FBI product from Nellie Ohr and her lover.

  • Rockabilly||

    Fuckin' A Remy. !!!

    You're the fucking best !!!

  • jdgalt1||

    I'll be outraged when this video vanishes because Youtube hates libertarians. Please switch to BitChute.

  • dchang0||

    Amen to that. Dump Twitter too. They suspended a few libertarians and anti-war voices this past two weeks.

    I'm hoping the free open-source community comes up with a truly decentralized alternative to each of these platforms. It can't be for-profit and can't even have a single web page (like minds.com) because the FBI has taken down domains before and the gov't has repeatedly put financial pressure on for-profit companies to get things censored.

    It has to be truly, completely, absolutely decentralized.

  • 10mm||

    Ok, here's a mildly serious question: have any of you actually been "offended" at something?

    For instance, you found something said or printed so emotionally difficult your life couldn't move on?

    Let me restate, are any of you so mentally weak that you must submit your will to sound vibrations in air or rgb dots on a monitor screen?


    ... me neither, so can we ruthlessly mock any of those that use that worthless adjective??

  • Fooseven||

    There's nothing wrong with taking offense...I think the divergence is where some feel the rest of the country / world / internet must adopt and enforce new measures to reflect your personal views.

  • vek||

    I wouldn't be so outraged all the time if the world were still a sane place... I'm 99% sure that the world has moved farther and farther away from objective reality and objectively better policies, positions, social norms, etc over the last several decades. How is someone NOT supposed to be outraged when parents are arrested for letting their kids walk a few blocks to a park? Or they're told they're literally Hitler for not knowing they were supposed to refer to a woman with a short haircut as a he? Etc. The world has gone mad! Mad I say!
