This is the December 19, 2018 FULL EPISODE of VICE News Tonight on HBO.

2:17 Wednesday marks 20 years since President Clinton was impeached. VICE News sat down with former special counsel Ken Starr and discussed the Mueller probe (and Starr’s book).

9:24 Elon Musk's Boring Company is opening its first test Tunnel to the press and public on Tuesday. Although there has been a lot of press and fanfare about this debut, it's not clear what this means in terms of actually creating something that will be a part of Los Angeles' transit system. The city government offered a rare exemption from environmental review for this 1.7 mile tunnel, but did not allow that for other planned tunnels on the West Side. We'll visit with an engineer explaining past mass transit efforts in L.A. and ride along in the new tunnel when it opens.

13:09 VICE News sits down with Senator Dick Durbin to talk about the First Step Act which Senate leaders passed last night. Durbin, who originally opposed the bill, says essentially that Democrats should take what they can get. He says this a minor step in addressing criminal justice reform.

16:55 Under the GOP’s tax overhaul, divorce agreements finalized after Jan 1, 2019 will no longer be eligible for a 75-year old tax deduction for alimony payments. But splits inked before the new year will be grandfathered in under the old rules, for the life of their agreements, which is sending some divorce lawyers into a December divorce overdrive.

22:35 Anderson Paak is back to review new music this week.

Bill Clinton raped people.

I think he's the best President of my lifetime, but he's NOT a good person in any respect.
Miguel Bruguera
Go Elon
Paul Kojack
This guy is a literal rocket scientist who has been more succesful in a decade than NASA has in 50+ years. We praise rappers for rapping about how much money they got from rapping, and try to poke holes in everything that would actually make a difference in the world. Personally i think the tunnel idea is a boondoggle, ecpecially considering only rich people with teslas would be using it, but certainly alot better than anything anyone associated with Vice could ever concieve of. The mans a genius regardless of whether this particular idea pans out. Tesla alone put him above this kind of scrutiny not to mention Spacex. Ever since he smoked a blunt with Joe Rogan people feel more free to take pot shots at him, but please realize you are on a whole lower plane of existence than someone like Musk.
Blake Vollbrecht
So, when people think about trying new ideas, it's bad? Applying the template of a tragedy (i.e. because you like to make stories instead of reports) doesn't really capture the mood or truth of the situation in the engineering world that you're supposed to be reporting on.

If you want to also talk about the downsides of new technology ventures, don't pretend like anybody is trying to cover up the risks. Just because you don't have a clue doesn't mean that competent investors are being misled. Elon is clear, publicly, that he cares more about achieving non-monetary goals, so investors are just along for the ride if they see any upshot to that. These aren't blue chip companies; their existence is barely even possible
Rob Valenzuela
It seems really obvious that these political dinosaurs are very unnecessary
SPARTAN-B301
Why you guys keep building in LA knowing the san Andreas rim will blow anytime?
Darth Insidius
vice are a bunch of lefty homos.
Pablo Yong
Every single thing humans have ever done is "economically impossible"... until someone figures out a way to make it possible.
Elena
Elon Musk is a liar and his projects fail. At least Vice news is not blind and see that.
zackAttacks69
Can we get a 3rd
Newman Newmanz
VICE is just FAR LEFTS PROPAGANDA TOOL.
Cayla Strudel
goodshit vice keep it up!
jordinio la
probably the worst thing i've watched all year
thais leekim
Seems literally everyone is angry about criticism of Musk. No one or no idea is sacrosanct. Elon Musk has had quite a few bs ideas in the past that just can't work and has acted like an fool at times along the way.
EdBabb
What sunglasses are Paak wearing?
JbassPlayer28
So much butthurt fanbois in these comments
J C
Was all a cover up/distraction for Clinton giving away shipping ports to his tail-hook friends and COSCO, closing bases, etc. Oh, and the Clinton murder allegations.
Hunter Flugge
I can't stand divorce lawyes. The whole principle of the profession makes me pissed. They thrive off of marriage failing
Ae Norist
Don´t go down there, bunch of Musk Fanboys full of magical thinking.
Seriously, the fact that you are approaching this as a matter of faith disqualifies you from being a worthwhile human.
Steve Gram
There is no reason Musk's idea wouldn't work, just look at what they are doing on the waterfront in Seattle. But it would require a huge investment to pull it off. And ken star can suck a fart out of my ass.

America First | VICE News Elon's Boring Tunnel & Race 2 days ago   45:04

VICE News Tonight presents America First, an in-depth look at President Trump’s unprecedented first year in office, focusing on his two biggest campaign promises: restoring manufacturing jobs and building the border wall.

Correspondents Michael Moynihan and Isobel Yeung travel across the country — and south of the border — to chart the progress of key campaign promises, and meet the voters who rallied behind Trump’s political revolution.

The documentary special features insights from Trump surrogates including political consultant Roger Stone and conservative commentator Ann Coulter. We also hear from key opposition players including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Undergirding it all is a focus group of Trump voters led by Republican Strategist Frank Luntz. Almost all of the people who voted for Trump in 2016 say he’d still get their vote today. “My biggest surprise in the last year is that many, many Trump voters are as mad at the GOP as they are at the Democrats. It’s Trump versus the world.”
