    People are putting Bernie into any picture they can think of. Some of them are funny.

    which is a bit shit.

    And not just because mocking people with disabilities was something Trump became notorious for. But also shit because of that.

    decent light hearted stuff

    The Personal Life of David Copperfield
    The Guard (Cracking performance from Brendan Gleeson, here because you also said "action films", funny film)
    Spirited Away
    Isle of Dogs (Jeff Goldblum, Bill Murray, Edward Norton and Bryan Cranston as the voices of a pack of stray dogs on a mission)
    The Artist

    Since The Artist is French (although the only bits of spoken dialogue are in English)... if you don't mind subtitles (or have good French), Delicatessen is a gentle-spirited farce, even if the theme is post-apocalyptic, so a black comedy. It's on Amazon Prime. I would also recommend Le Diner de Cons ("The Dinner Game" is a polite translation, "The Dinner for Moronic Cunts" would be more accurate) as one of the funniest French films ever made but I don't think it's streamed anywhere legal now. Oh, tell a lie, it is on Amazon Prime but you have to go to Amazon.com, not .co.uk, to find it.

    Since I've recommended Isle of Dogs, the most accessible film Wes Anderson has ever made and better than Fantastic Mr Fox, cautious recommendation of The Grand Budapest Hotel. Mostly high-paced farce, stand-out performance from Ralph Fiennes, but some people will find it, well, a bit arch. "More accessible than The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" is for some people a low bar that they won't step over.

    I've sat through people doing twenty mins of one liners

    That can be deadly boring, but some people do it well. Tim Vine, for instance. There's an art to building links and themes between the gags and bringing the audience with you.

    That's on my reading list this year. Haven't read any of his stuff since In Viriconium ans Viriconium Nights, years ago.

    Proud Boys abandon Trump, calling him a total failure.

    This... seems entirely out of character for you.

    The moment I saw the picture of Bernie at the inauguration, I thought "change my mind" meme, but nobody seems to have done it. So I did.

    I mean, this was what he was thinking, I'm sure.
