    The problem with political discourse today is that the parties can't even agree on the facts, opines comedian Roy Wood Jr., a longtime correspondent for "The Daily Show."  "Politics is very much like sports...if we can't both agree that it was a fumble, we can't even talk about whether or not it was a good game," Wood said. "You feel like sometimes you're arguing with a bunch of referees when it comes to politics in this country." He talked with CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett for this week's episode of "The Takeout" podcast. Wood also takes issue with the linguistic evolution of the word "woke" and how it's been "weaponized" by figures on the right to represent anything they disagree with. "The word has been generalized now," Wood said. "To me, woke just means someone who cares. Your eyes are open." The word "woke," like the term "cancel culture," has its roots in Black culture, but has been used by many on the right to become a derisive catchall phrase for left-wing ideology. Wood mocked the...

    Rudy Giuliani has revealed that he called New York City police on Sacha Baron Cohen who tried to prank him during an interview earlier this week while wearing a pink bikini.
