FAT SHAMING: “James Corden Responds to Bill Maher’s Fat Shaming Take” / The Late Late Show with James Corden ☮

After seeing a segment on “Real Time with Bill Maher” addressing obesity rates in the United States, in which Bill’s thesis is that fat shaming needs to make a comeback, James Corden felt compelled to respond with a different perspective. Simply put, fat shaming hasn’t gone anywhere and is perhaps the worst approach to a complex issue for people across the globe.

INTERVIEW: “George Carlin’s Advice on Dealing with the 2016 Election” / George Carlin ☮

An Excerpt from George Carlin on Charlie Rose: 3-26-1996 To those incensed by the intentional inaccuracy of the title: This is not George Carlin literally speaking about the 2016 election 8.5 years after his death, but his outlook on his life and creativity can be applicable to today’s grueling social divide. Maybe you disagree and I respect that. I’ll admit it’s cynical as fuck. This is also not posthumously assigning Carlin to a modern candidate. He claimed that he didn’t vote and he never publicly supported any politician. This was posted before the election. It’s not intended as a left/right thing, and I didn’t monetize it. I’m not selling anything. I posted it to get your attention in case it could inspire some calm in shaky times.
