Stephen Colbert took aim at Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) for resigning from Congress to lead a new media company owned by former President Donald Trump.

“Speaking of catastrophes,” Colbert said on Tuesday’s Late Show, teeing up his take on the Republican. “There’s news about California representative and goldfish who watches you have sex — Devin Nunes.

The host earned a round of applause from viewers as he shared news of Nunes’ impending departure from Congress, going on to assure them that the Republican will not be out of a job.

“Nunes has been named the CEO of the former president’s new media company despite having ‘no apparent prior experience working in the tech industry or as an executive,’” Colbert said. “Instead, Nunes is a former dairy farmer.”

Colbert then really took the joke home, cracking that Nunes’ past experience makes him the “perfect guy to make money off the old president, because he has experience milking things with leathery skin.”

The host went on to remind viewers that Nunes’ past life as a dairy farmer is not his only connection to cattle, as he sued Twitter for $250 million over a parody account pretending to be his cow.

“The case was of course dismissed and we still don’t know who was behind the cow Twitter account,” he said. “All we know is that it’s someone smarter than Devin Nunes, so probably a cow.”

Colbert went on to say that the president normally has “good reason” to appoint someone “who is grossly incompetent to an important position.”

“They’re related to him,” he joked. “That means the only reason Nunes got this gig is because [Jared Kushner], Don Jr., and Eric all turned it down.”

“Sorry, Dad, no can do. That job is beneath me! But I’d still like to be considered for the role of chief executive hug-receiver,” Colbert added, whipping out his Eric Trump impression.

Inside the self-driving truck operation hauling one million pounds of beer over 220 miles in huge autonomous test

A MASSIVE self-driving truck operation has successfully hauled over one million pounds of Modelo and Corona beer over 220 miles a day in a new pilot program.

Waymo, Alphabet Inc started the test in April in an effort to bring state-of-the-art self-driving technology to the trucking world.

The company's driveless-vehicle unit partnered with C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc to deliver the freight to Houston from Dallas.

The two groups are using Class 8 trucks with self-driving software and a safety driver behind the wheel to transport the goods.

"We saw really good maturity and performance from the system," said Charlie Jatt, head of commercialization for trucking at Waymo.

"There were no harsh brakes or swerving events."

C.H. Robinson, a trucking company with more than $23billion in revenue, is seeking long-term solutions to the current truck driver shortage.

In February 2022, C.H. Robinson announced that it entered a strategic partnership with autonomous driving tech company Waymo to find practical solutions that address supply chain issues.

Jatt explained that the Dallas-Houston transportation line was a good opportunity to test the limits of the technology as the roads have fog, rain, and other issues that could interfere with the system's sensors, Bloomberg reported.

While this latest run was a success, the company has not released a specific date when they plan to run the trucks without a test driver.

"It's not super far away," Jatt said.

"It's something we're working toward with urgency and expect to be ready in the coming years."

Waymo is part of Alphabet, Google’s parent company, and leads the way in the race to level 5 autonomy (self-driving) with its extensive computer-simulated and real-world testing, Jalopnik reports.

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) formed a ranking system for automation capabilities within self-driving cars in 2014.

These autonomous rankings are leveled from 0 to 5.

Any vehicle with a Level 5 self-driving designation is fully autonomous.

Level 5 self-driving cars can travel through bad weather and aren’t limited to operations within specific geographical designations.

IHS Markit published a report in 2016 predicting that 21million Level 5 autonomous vehicles will be on the road by 2035.
