Today: Stephen Colbert (The Late Show/CBS) hosts comedian Wanda Sykes to promote the new show The Talk Show Game Show which she is executive producing.
Whatever her project is, it sounds kinda stupid, but Wanda herself is anything but. I didn’t know much about Wanda before this appearance but she seems like a cool cat. She talked about how she recently saw Hamilton and was inspired to bring back the duel. She thinks bringing back the duel would fix D.C. and I am 10,000 percent behind that.
Some background on that reference (via Wikipedia):
The Burr–Hamilton duel was fought between prominent American politicians Aaron Burr, the sitting Vice President of the United States, and Alexander Hamilton, the former Secretary of the Treasury, at Weehawken, New Jersey on July 11, 1804. The duel was the culmination of a long and bitter rivalry between the two men.
Can you IMAGINE the hype a duel would bring to our country? With today’s technology, it would be a primetime event with extensive coverage, and today’s guns would make sure it wouldn’t be a dud.
Just imagine the media attention McGregor and Mayweather produced and multiply that by a thousand. This would turn our country on its head for a good 24 if you could buy a pay-per-view of Trump vs. Mueller, McConnell vs. McCain, Conway vs. her shadow. All will be settled based on the result of the duel. My god, every night in America would be Philadelphia after the Super Bowl, and I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.
The talk about her proposition to fix D.C. starts at 6-minute mark:
