Meyers, Kimmel, and 'The Daily Show' take closer looks at Santos being expelled

I closed 'Bankrupt - Ruby Tuesday' by Bright Sun Films, a tale of the Retail Apocalypse by telling my readers "Stay tuned for comedy tomorrow, when I expect 'Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, and especially Jimmy Kimmel will run a victory lap as they dunk on his departure while mourning the loss of a great subject for comedy.'" I got two-thirds of my wish, as both Meyers and Kimmel featured George Santos in their sketches and monologues, while Colbert is at home recovering from a ruptured appendix. Get well soon, Stephen! Your fans miss you!

Seth Meyers kicks off the farewells with Trump Says He'll "Redo" 2020 Election, George Santos Flees Capitol in Shame: A Closer Look.

Seth takes a closer look at GOP front-runner and four-time indictee Donald Trump claiming in an unhinged and incoherent rant that he will somehow "redo" the 2020 election and would win in a landslide if Jesus was the scorekeeper.
That made for an interesting comparison and contrast between Trump and Santos. Based on indictments, The Former Guy is the bigger criminal, but Santos is the one whose peers punished him. Even so, I have confidence that "the wheels of justice are grinding slowly in this case, but I expect they will indeed grind exceedingly fine" regarding TFG.

It took longer for Kimmel to say his good-bye to Santos in George Santos Kicked Out of Congress, Trump Ate “Too Much” After Jan 6th & a Very MAGA Christmas, saving his farewell until the finale of his monologue.

We are four nights into The Elf on the Shelf and we are providing a service to all the Moms and Dads out there who are doing it, Taylor Swift was in Green Bay for Sunday Night Football between Green Bay and Kansas City, Donald Trump was up late last night typing out a rebuttal to a story in Liz Cheney’s new book, he was in Cedar Rapids on Saturday floating out what might be his most nonsensical election notion yet, he has a lot of stuff for sale on his website in anticipation of Christmas, and George Santos was officially expelled from Congress.
That was a fitting send-off for Santos. Good riddance!

I close with The Daily Show's Congress Votes Santos Out & DeSantis & Newsom Throw Down in place of Colbert.

Charlamagne Tha God tackles Congress voting George Santos out and Felicity Huffman discussing her college admissions scandal. Plus, Ronny Chieng, Desi Lydic, and Michael Kosta weigh in on Gavin Newsom and Ron DeSantis's fiery debate.
I think that Charlamagne Tha God is onto something when he said that Santos's sexual orientation played an unspoken role in his expulsion, at least among Republicans. The Democrats didn't care about that; being a scandalous accused crook was enough.

Finally, I'm glad someone paid attention to the Fox News debate between Ron DeSantis and Gavin Newsom. Newsom attacked DeSantis’ awful record on COVID, which I reinforced in a Twitter thread. That first tweet is my most viewed and liked so far this month. Here's to hoping it convinced some people.
