Wait…Penis Pumps Are Covered By Medicare?! So Why Are Republicans Outraged By Birth Control Being Included?! Watch The Daily Show’s Report!

samantha bee daily show penis pump doodle

Here’s something we bet you didn’t know…

Over the last five years, Medicare has spent more than $172 million on penis pumps for men with erectile dysfunction.

That’s right. Your tax dollars are being spent on making sure your grandpa can get a boner!

So why then aren't conservatives in Congress up in arms about giving out these free dick-hardening devices?

After all, they’ve been arguing for months now over the Affordable Healthcare Act’s contraceptive mandate that would provide birth control to women!

Leave it to the Daily Show to break down this double standard!

Correspondent Samantha Bee investigated why Washington lawmakers are all for penis pumps but don’t think the government should foot the bill for women’s BC.

Oh that’s right, because the vast majority of them are old men!

A gender injustice that sucks harder than the contraption stuck on Sam’s face!

Press PLAY (below) to watch her report that will have you both laughing and crying at the state of American politics!

Really, Michele Bachmann?!? Congresswoman Says “Gay Community Bullied American People!"

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitik

michele bachmann gay bullying cpac interview wenn doodle

Honestly. How is she STILL in Congress??

Minnesota Republican Representative Michele Bachmann said this week that she’s tired of being bullied by the gays!

Um…is today opposite day or something? Because that statement makes zero sense.

According to her, Arizona’s “right-to-discriminate” bill got shut down by the deceitful LGBT community, who tried to pass off the would-be law as anti-gay, when the real reasoning behind the bill was about same-sex marriage!

Again…sweetie, you’re making absolutely no sense here. You think a bill that allows businesses to deny service to gay people ISN’T a gay rights issue?

See if you can follow Michele’s logic. She explained in an interview while attending CPAC:

Ben Affleck Testifies Before Congress On Violence In Africa! See Batman Try To Save Gotham, Err, The Congo HERE!

Filed under: Ben AffleckPolitikInspirationViolence

Jennifer Garner's gorgeous husband just went to Washington and you'll never believe why!!

Batman vs. Superman star Ben Affleck visited Capitol Hill on Wednesday and testified before the Senate's Committee on Foreign Relations!

No, seriously!!!

The A-list actor is an expert on the travesties occuring in the Congo and he advised a whole room full of senators, including former Presidential candidate John McCain, who were genuinely grateful for his expertise!!

Curious what Ben had to offer? Ch-ch-check out his whole testimony (above)!

Is he the world's best samaritan or if this is still just part of Ben's continued penance for starring in Gigli? We'll probably never know, but we're nevertheless grateful for his contribution because the problems in that region of the world are SERIOUS!

Over five million people have been killed there since civil war broke out in the late '90s and Ben's non-profit advocacy group, the Eastern Congo Initiative, attempts to curb some of that violence.

Keep up the inspirational work, Mr. Affleck!

Seth Rogen Testifies In Front Of Congress! Watch The Video That’ll Make You Laugh, Cry, Then Laugh Again!

Filed under: PolitikSeth RogenTwitterHealthMental HealthFamilyHIGHlariousFunny

History was made this week in Washington as for the first time ever, the phrase “knocked up” was used during an official Congressional hearing!

LOLz!

Seth Rogen sat in front of a microphone on Capitol Hill yesterday to speak about an issue that is very near and dear to his heart.

No, not legalizing marijuana, shockingly enough.

Seth was there to talk about Alzheimer’s research.

His mother-in-law suffers from the disease, and he and his wife have seen her slip away before their eyes - forgetting how to speak, eat, or even get to the bathroom on her own.

Seth opened up about how hard his experiences have been and how having Alzheimer’s in his family lead him to start his own charity, Hilarity for Charity.

Srsly, we went back and forth from cracking up to crying our eyes out while watching his testimony!

Unfortunately, the funny man only had TWO Senators show up to hear him speak!

Bluuuugh! Why are we not surprised that members of Congress suck at doing their jobs?

Seth voiced his disappointment on Twitter afterwards, tweeting:

Congress is tired of having to hide their pot in cookie jars and stuff, so they're finally pushing for President Obama to reclassify the drug that should've have been classified so poorly to begin with!

And when we say Congress, we totally don't mean all of them — but 18 of them at least!

Oh, and they're all Democrats. Whatevs! They're asking the President to put his money where his mouth is after his latest mention of the sticky icky and how it's no worse than alcohol!

Specifically, they want him to

It was rumored that this former American Idol runner-up was going to make his political dreams a reality - and today's announcement absolutely confirms it!

Clay Aiken has officially entered his bid for congress, y'all!

On Wednesday, Clay announced his Democratic plans to unseat second-term Rep. Renee Ellmers in a predominantly Republican district in North Carolina.

This is way harder to snag than AI's ticket to Hollywood, people!

In the video revealing his campaign launch, Clay candidly explained his tough childhood - and expressed how he can relate to people during this difficult economic time:

"For most Americans, there are no golden tickets — at least not like the kind you see on TV. More folks are struggling today than at any time in our history, and here in North Carolina, we've got more than our share of pain."

We can't wait to see how he uses this political platform!

Ch-ch-check out the heartfelt vid that announces his bid…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
