Noah, Kimmel, and Maher on January 6th hearings

After featuring Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers on the January 6th Committee hearing, it's time for me to share the viewpoints of other late-night talk show hosts beginning with The Daily Show with Trevor Noah's segment Insurrectionists Experience Consequences As Jan. 6th Hearings Begin.

Insurrectionists find out the hard way that the police are not always their friends as the January 6th hearings begin.
Trevor had exactly the same reaction to Marjorie Taylor Greene's remarks as I did. It's not hard to imagine; it happens all the time in the U.S.

Speaking of Greene, she was the focus of the middle of Jimmy Kimmel's Trump’s Manic Response to January 6th Hearings & Fox News Attempts to Distract Viewers from Watching.

The fans in Boston have a special dislike for Draymond Green, he and his Warrior teammates are upset about the abusive Boston fans, last night was the first night of the January 6th Congressional Hearings, we learned how pre-meditated and coordinated the effort to take control of the White House was, it was revealed that Trump did not call the National Guard to stop the attack, multiple Republican lawmakers asked Trump for pardons, Fox News attempted to bury the hearing by going commercial free for two and half hours during it, Trump responded to the hearing with fourteen manic posts on Truth Social and defended Ivanka for believing Bill Barr when he told her the election wasn’t rigged, Klan Mom Marjorie Taylor Greene continues to kiss Trump’s ass but finished a distant second to a reporter from OAN and we duped a passionate Warriors fan into missing the fourth quarter at an NBA Finals game.
May Kimmel have as much success in his rivalry with Greene as John Oliver did with AT&T.

Now for Bill Maher's Monologue: America's Got Treason.

Bill reacts to the top stories of the week, including the opening night of the January 6th Committee hearings, in his Real Time monologue.
Bill wasn't as sharp as either Noah or Kimmel, as I think he's more incredulous than angry. Fortunately, he and his guests continued examining the subject in "Mike Pence Deserves It".

Kellyanne Conway and Josh Barro join Bill to discuss whether President Trump's words and actions on January 6th should bar him from public office.
I think they should disqualify The Former Guy based on the Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.
No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
Let's see if the January 6th committee presents evidence for that and proposes any action. The only fly in the ointment is that the amendment does not specifically mention President and Vice President, although I would argue that "any office, civil or military, under the United States" would cover both.

The committee hearings resume on Monday. In the meantime, stay tuned for the Sunday entertainment feature.
