Reaction pours in after summit Members of the political world are reacting to Mr. Trump's summit with Putin after failing to place blame on the Russians for their role in the election. I never thought I would see the day when our American President would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression.
Jeff Flake, R-Arizona tweeted that the president's press conference was "shameful", adding that he never thought he'd see a day when the president "would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression. There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals.
The United States must be focused on holding Russia accountable and putting an end to its vile attacks on democracy," Ryan added. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, called the meeting a "missed opportunity to firmly hold Russia accountable for meddling and deliver a strong warning regarding future elections.
Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska, said in a statement that Mr. Trump's blame of the U. America wants a good relationship with the Russian people but Vladimir Putin and his thugs are responsible for Soviet-style aggression. When the President plays these moral equivalence games, he gives Putin a propaganda win he desperately needs," Sasse added. On the Democratic side, Sen. Bob Mendez of New Jersey called the meeting "disturbing, shameful, jaw-dropping and disgraceful.
I mean, the network enjoys the edginess of their programming and of our show, but then there's these kind of sometimes feel - you know, what feels like silly guidelines that - of certain words that you can't say.
It's such a strange, strange thing when you look at what the boundary of acceptable and not acceptable is on television. You know, we shoot people in the head in just about every episode, you know. You know, we can't get away with saying certain words. So there definitely seems to be some double standards Yeah, an interesting social double standard in a way, yeah.
Jordan, when you met President Obama, which I know you did, did you get some insights into how to perform him? I would say so, yeah. I think I walked out of there a little bit more confident with my impression, and I actually did it for him at one point. He says, you know, I do a pretty good me myself, he said something like that. But, you know, the - he's - he is a close talker. He's a touchy guy. He is a very tactile individual. He will touch you on the shoulder and, you know, kind of, you know, so that big brother or father figure kind of way.
And you really do feel sort of shepherded by him. And he's very funny. So I think I - I think after meeting him I was inclined to turn up the - just the humor of him, that he has a sense of humor. And again, I think that is also something that he, in the beginning of his presidency, he couldn't really explore and couldn't show. You know, he had to be almost a one-dimensional, stoic leader during that first election. Are you going to bring out the anger translator to talk about Obama's anger at the Obamacare website?
Well yeah, I think we - that may happen, and we may - we're planning - we're kind of cooking something up right now that's - I don't even know if it's confidential, but we're cooking something up right now to do about the ACA. He's like who the - I mean, come on. As Luther Who doesn't want health care? Go ahead, break your leg then. I'm gonna come over there and break your leg for you. As Obama All right, Luther. As Obama Keep it together. As Luther People is crazy.
As Obama People is crazy.
As Luther And I'm gonna say it right now, mostly white people, stupid. Young white men, 26, get your act together. As Obama All right, well, let's rope it in. Let's not make it racial. Let's not make anything racial, ever. As Luther I apologize, sir. They have their own sketch comedy show on Comedy Central. A character you do, Keegan, that I really love is the substitute teacher.
And this is a teacher who's taught in an inner-city school for, like, 20 years, and now he's teaching in like a middle-class school that it's like somewhere at approximately percent white.
And I want to play the first of these sketches that you did with the substitute teacher, and then we'll talk about the character some more. But first, just like physically describe how you look in this sketch so we can get an image in our minds. Well, I think what you're dealing with is a guy who has a real kind of military persona about him. He's very rigid and a little haggard yet still aggressive.
He's got a really - his hairline is really far back. He's been balding probably since his 20s. And he has a very kind of tight - like a - this isn't the - the best way to describe is like a high and tight kind of moustache. So he looks like he might have been in the Army or something or an MP.
And he wears a short-sleeved, drab shirt and like a twill tie and just looks - he just looks all business, like he's ready to rumble. OK, so this is the substitute teacher, performed by my guest Keegan-Michael Key. Garvey ph All right, listen up, y'all. I'm y'all's substitute teacher, Mr.
I taught school for 20 years in the inner city, so don't even think about messing with me. OK, let's take roll here. As Jacqueline Do you mean Jacqueline?
Garvey OK, so that's how it's gonna be. I've got my eye on you, Jayquellen. Where is Bellakay at? There's no Bellakay here today? As Blake My name is Blake. Garvey Are you out of your damn mind? Do you want to go to war, Bellakay? Because we could go to war. As character No, no.
Garvey I'm for real. So you better check yourself. I love it's Bellakey phBellakay, he's got two different pronunciations. Jordan, do you want to describe how you end the sketch?
And then yes, at - I believe Garvey says Jo-Nathan phand then Is it Timothee ph? It's Timothee, yes, yes, yes. Maybe at one point it was Jo-Nathan, but It was Jo-Nathan at one point. But yes, he says Timothee, and then, you know, me the first black student we've seen, sort of emerges from behind a white student - Pre-sent. And then it's over. It's a pretty absurd little piece of heightening We went back and forth on pre-sent, too.
We're like should he say - is that too silly? Is pre-sent too silly? Everybody knows - but we just decided to go with it anyway. We had here, heray phheree, pre-sent and just good old-fashioned present.
But somehow it works. Somehow it works, yeah. So when you were in school, did you have - were there a lot of students in your classes that had names that their parents had obviously creatively made up from scratch? Oh yeah, oh yeah. Keegan's from Detroit, and I'm from New York, and So the answer to that question is yes. What were some of your real favorites, like of the real names? There were literally in my neighborhood, there were two kids - now this is kind of an urban legend.
Jordan and I both know this legend. Everybody knows this legend in kind of African-American lore. There's always somebody in your neighborhood named Orangejello or Lemonjello. So, you know, that's - and then Right, which - I mean, if you really, you know, dig deep into it, you know, especially when talking about African-American culture, it's got, you know, names have such a deep history, you know, just from being - having our names taken away in the first place.
Since we were renamed, and, you know, now it feels like, you know, it feels like 80 percent of African-American population have, you know, has - named Washington or Jefferson or some, you know, some president or slave owner's name.
And, you know, I almost wonder is this, like, is this part of a way of taking back the principle of naming your - I might be going too far into this, but naming your kids something of your choice.
How did you feel about your names, Keegan and Jordan? No, I like my name. You know, when I meet other kids in the world named Keegan, and they're usually younger than I am, I'll say hey mom, I met a Keegan today. But you didn't meet a Keegan-Michael. You're the only one in the whole world. So my - my little white farmer mom from Northern Illinois, she did the same thing, you know, did the same thing. Yeah, no, I love my name.
I mean, I know my mother wanted to name me something possibly biblical, something water-related for some reason. So she went with Jordan. Tell Terry your middle name. Which is, yeah, kind of like a comedian butler. But then the other interesting true story about my name is my name was almost going to be Noah, you know, another water-related biblical name.
But of course my realized I would have been Noah Peele. That would have been so funny. Yeah, I mean, that would have been maybe even more amazing stage name. It's like a great - that name is like having - that's like Rip Torn. You know, that would be an amazing name. And this sketch is really funny. It's the same group of students as we heard in the one where he's taking attendance, and everybody has an - and he's mispronouncing everybody's names because he's used to unusual names.
So this sketch starts with one of the students asking a question to the teacher. Garvey What is it, A-aron? As Aaron Some of us need to leave a few minutes early today. Garvey Oh, oh is that so? And what, pray tell, is the reason for this premature exodus? As Aaron Yearbook photos. We have to leave 15 minutes early to meet up with our clubs.
Garvey All right, you know what? That might work with other substitute teachers, but I taught in the inner city for over 20 years. Now y'all want to leave my class early so y'all can go meet up at the club. Ain't none of y'all old enough to go to the damn club, ridiculous. Garvey Son of a bitch.
As Aaron Just then? Garvey I'm gonna throw you out that damn window. Garvey, we're telling the truth. We have clubs at this school. We have clubs for special interests. Garvey OK, what the hell club are you in, Jayquellen? As Jacqueline Future Leaders of America. How would you know if you gonna be a leader in the future?
Is there a stargate in your bedroom? Can you travel through time, Jayquellen? Garvey Then sit the flip down. That's Keegan-Michael Key as a substitute teacher, and Jordan Peele, do you want to explain how you end the sketch? I believe Timothee raises his name, and Mr. Garvey says, you know, he calls on Timothee, you know, what club do you have to go.
And Timothee says, you know, I've got to go pick up my daughter. So I'm wondering, Keegan, did you model that on a teacher that you had?
Trump defends Putin from claims of election interference
Actually, he is modeled on a guidance counselor that I had in grade school. And I went to a predominately black grade school, Catholic grade school in Detroit, and so that kind of aggression came from this particular guidance counselor because, you know, we had really fantastic kids at my school and super-smart kids at my school and a lot of kind of roughhouse kids at my school.
And he was - it's that same energy, and Jordan really honed in on this energy when the sketch was being written, which was the one thing that never leaves him is he's always ever-vigilant. He's hyper-vigilant about the misbehaving. And, you know, there's lots of perhaps social underpinnings as to why he believes every student behaves that way, blah, blah, blah.
But yeah, he was based on this one guy who the attitude of him, the tone of him is based on this one guy. Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will be back in the second half of the show. The show is in its third season. Key and Peele are both biracial and often deal with race in their comedy. They each started out doing improv and they worked together as cast members on "Madtv. Was it ever an issue of like which group you were going to fit into - if you're going to identify with the white students or the black students?
Or were there groups within the schools you went to that were multicultural enough that you didn't have to worry about like choosing a team? Yeah, for me the, I think the reason I went into theater, ultimately, was because that was one of those multicultural groups. Because you identify with other people that share similar passions to you, so it didn't matter how much melanin was in their skin. You have a passion for theater, you have a passion for theater and I have a passion for theater.
And so you find yourself, that clan is born out of love and passion as opposed to born out of some sense of obligation to belong to a certain group. So for me, that's was - that's kind of - that's what salvaged my life, I think, in high school for the most part.
It's such a loaded question I think for both of us. But I really do feel like, growing up, you know, I was lucky enough to be in, you know, a great town and great schools that had a certain amount of diversity. And so, you know, this is all, all of this goes into our work. And I think both, you know, like Keegan was saying, I think the reason both of us became actors is because we did, you know, a little, a fair amount of code switching growing up, and still do.
You know, we will, if Keegan and I are just hanging out with each other, it's funny, we'll, all of a sudden we will go into a more casual black dialect. A more urban space, in a way. You know, that's kind of our comfort zone with each other when we're making each other laugh. It's, and yeah, I mean it's fascinating. One of the few African-Americans there when he was growing up. What do you know about the racial background of your birth parents?
YOUR THOROUGH AND DEFINITIVE GUIDE
I don't know if you know them at all or know who they are. Oh, yeah, I do. I know my biological mother quite well and we have a wonderful, wonderful relationship. And I, it's the exact same demographic. So my father has passed away. He was African-American, my mother is white. And so I was adopted by a couple that was of a similar dynamic as my biological parents. And is that part of the reason why they adopted you, because they were an interracial couple?
At that time, you know, right at the turn of the '70s - the '60s and '70s, was when I was born. So right at that time they were OK with giving this biracial child to a mixed couple, when typically I think 10 years after that it's more typical to have a biracial child - a biracial child of my makeup - go to an African-American couple. But they were a mixed couple, I was a mixed baby, and everybody thought it might be a good match, so that's how that went.
So just curious, this is kind of off-topic from your comedy, but what's it like to have a close relationship with the biological mother who put you up for adoption? I'd say it's been like, it's been like 16 years of some kind of constant healing, is how I feel about it. Because I, you - like every human, you, you know, Jordan said earlier, we have to categorize ourselves, so you kind of start to build a mythos because I had no information about her.
So you have to build a mythos around yourself, and so my mythos included me not being wanted or me being a wretched person, which is just great fertilizer for comedy. It's just - it could turn you into an exquisite comedian. Ask Richard Pryor's ghost. So but I didn't have any idea of what my life was and then so I had this kind of sense about who I was.
And, of course, my adoptive mother tirelessly worked most of her life to build up my self-esteem. So what happened was finding her started to shed light and destroy my mythos. So for the first year of knowing her, my mom kind of actually literally visited me in Detroit and kind of gave me a tour of my life - where I was conceived, where I was born, where she found out she was pregnant.
It was amazing, Terry, and very emotional. But what it did is, you hold precious what you create for yourself in your life that makes you comfortable and everything she was saying was shattering all of that.
So, oh my gosh, there is this worthwhile human in the world who somebody did want to keep. And it's a long, very personal story, but, you know, it was - it's been, it's been a really wonderful, revelatory story.
Jordan, do you know your father? I - my father passed away in I knew him up until about six years old, and that would've been, you know, my going to his place of work once a month, once every couple of months, until he was sort of out of the picture without any real concrete explanation as to why he was out of the picture. Now, you know, I've since learned that, you know, he's got many kids across the country and other countries. You know, he was definitely a rolling stone, and had kids before me and kids after me.
So it was definitely part of his MO to procreate and move on. But yeah, I mean to answer your question, no. So you hardly knew your father and he was like totally out of your life by the time he was six. But since you have dark skin, a lot of people just automatically identify you as African-American. But the person who was African-American in your family, your father, was gone and your mother is white. And the part of your extended family that you've been most in touch with is your mother's side, which again is white.
So I can imagine a sense of disconnect, of being, you know, externally identified as African-American because of your skin color but at the same time feeling like everybody in, you know, all of your like blood family that you know that's still is in your life is white.
Not sure what the question is. But it just seems like it must be a very disconnected feeling in some ways. It's, I mean you really summed it up very well, and that's exactly how I would phrase it. There is these identity questions and, you know, all I can say is I, my mother was very good in that she helped me feel like I was a special person, like I, you know, I didn't need to go any farther than, you know, who I was and what I liked in order to find my identity.
But yeah, clearly there has been, you know, a huge imprint that it's made on my personality and my art and my craft. And I think the most trying part it is, involves how I speak. I think that's always been the part that I felt most insecure about. What do you mean? Is that the world has wanted me to speak differently than I speak. You know, I speak like my mom; I speak like, you know, like the whitest white dude; I speak like a Def Comedy Jam comedian doing an impression of a white guy.
That's how I've, you know, sort of grown up.
