  • Watching clips with Trump in his presidency, have been one of the greatest comedy shows ever! On a serious note, you should get an oscar for your Eric / Biden impressions:D

  • it's a myth that there were no slaves in canada. it was far more rare than in the states, but there were some well-documented white owners of black slaves. in general black people did have a less brutal time in canada than down south though. canada has its own shameful history of genocide and abuse of its Indigenous peoples, so we don't have the moral high ground either way. our medical system is definitely better for our poor than yours though. we have that.

  • sorry but slavery did exist here in Canada. wish I could say it didn't. and don't look to us as models for how to treat First Nations.

  • Just goes to show the Emmys are nothing more than one group of lame no-talent Democrats applauding and awarding Emmys to another group of the same. Isn't a comedy show supposed to be funny? If he is getting applause and cheering instead of laughter, he is doing political commentary not comedy.

  • Canadian here. The $600M was a huge waste because nothing changed. Low voter turnout and the conservatives actually won the popular vote. Btw our Conservative party is similar to moderate/centrist Democrats.

  • Perhaps our Canadian moose didn't own slaves, but our Canadian history tells us that there were Canadians who participated in the slave trade.

  • Stephen: Our democracy is in danger. And by democracy I mean Democrat power and democratic slavery. Pay no attention to what that means. I just want to be friends and have a beer with the president Joke Biden, dance with the elitist Democrat majority leader of the senate Chuck, and kiss elitist Democrat majority leader of the house Nancy.

  • Stephen: I won an Emmy. So now I'm cool now and everything I say is undeniable. Wayne: N O T !!!!

  • Didn't Cuomo also get an Emmy?

  • The dude was so spineless and scared that he couldn't take the L. A real man would have accepted he lost. Only a petulant, pusillanimous child would throw a tantrum like this, cry about something being "unfair", and call the winning side "cheaters".

  • ColberT winning an Emmy is like Congress voting to give itself a raise. He just stirred up so much misguided hatred for one man. Today ColberT is responsible for inflation, Afghanistan, the border crisis, high gasoline prices, high insulin prices and the fact that the currently installed president can barely speak coherently. ColberT is epitome of someone who spreads misinformation.

  • People don't see the truth. You have a guy that isn't a puppet that's the president, and then all of a sudden we have a president that is. Which one do you want? Uhh I want the guy that's not a puppet. Let's face it. People are dumb. People will believe anything they are told. Meaning we are being lied to. I just had my aunt die in the hospital because they put her on a ventilator because of covid. Here's what happens when you put someone on a ventilator...their lungs fill up with fluid and they die of nymonia. That's facts. Then the hospital gets 40k for calling it covid. Don't ever ever put someone on a ventilator. These people need to be exterminated. Talking about the people behind this madness.

  • Canadian elections have plenty of political and procedural games but those are only useful for a couple of months every four years. Canada has long periods of political stability where governance can happen. The USA wastes most of it's democratic capital on politics and power-grabs, leaving only a tiny sliver of resources are for governance. If doing nothing benefits someone, nothing gets done.

  • Well, we don't have "owners" of enslaved people on our bills anymore in Canada - Sir John A MacDonald (first PM of canada) used to be on the $10 bill and his family was involved in the slave trade, but that racist pos was recently replaced by Viola Desmond, who was a Black businesswoman and Civil Rights activist
