    Donald Trump’s private meeting Thursday with Senate Republicans — designed to foster greater party unity ahead of the national convention in Cleveland — grew combative as the presumptive presidential nominee admonished three senators who have been critical of his candidacy and predicted they would lose their reelection bids, according to two Republican officials with direct knowledge of the exchanges. Trump’s most tense exchange was with Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has been vocal in his concerns about the business mogul’s candidacy, especially his rhetoric and policies on immigration that the senator argues alienate many Latino voters and others in Arizona....

    Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton praised Fox News’s Megyn Kelly as she bashed GOP frontrunner Donald Trump during an appearance on The View Tuesday morning. “The way he treated Megyn Kelly, who is a superb journalist. Right?” Clinton ridiculed, referencing Trump’s treatment of “so many women.” “I just don’t understand what he thinks is the role of somebody who is running for president,” she added, after saying Trump has attacked Mexicans and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 37% , who Clinton said is “a friend of mine.” “He started on his very first day saying all Mexican immigrants are rapists and criminals,...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Comedian Chris Rock launched his return stint as Oscar host on Sunday by immediately and unabashedly confronting the racially charged elephant in the room - the furor over the all-white field of performers nominated for Hollywood's highest honors. In an opening monologue peppered with biting commentary about what he described as "sorority"-style discrimination pervading the film industry, Rock set the stage for a night of running gags that repeatedly returned to themes of racial politics. In doing so, he transformed a glittering awards show long known for self-reverential pomp into a 3 1/2-hour live ABC telecast...

    Comedian Chris Rock gave what has to be both the most monotonous and racially-charged Academy Award monologue in its entire history — it was 10 minutes of nothing but one #OscarsSoWhite joke after another. Then for the cherry on top, he shouted out “Black lives matter!” at the end. Rock hit the audience right out of the starting gate. “Man, I counted at least 15 black people on that montage,” he said. “Hey, well, I’m here at the Academy Awards, otherwise known as the white People’s Choice Awards. You realize if they nominated hosts, I wouldn’t even get this job....

    Chris Rock came out swinging in one of the best opening monologues in years and took on the diversity controversy from the get-go at the 88th Academy Awards. Last night also saw Brie Lawson win Best Actress, Leonardo DiCaprio snag Best Actor in his fifth nomination, Alejandro G. Ińárritu was named Best Director and Spotlight won Best Picture. With all that, the Oscars themselves had a not such a great night with a 23.1/37 in metered market results. That’s down 6% from the 24.6/39 that the ceremony got last year in early results from the 56 markets across the country....

    LOS ANGELES - Despite repeated protests about its lack of diversity over the years, Hollywood does a fine job of engaging in repetitive amnesia about its pervasive and longstanding biases. Chris Rock, in other words, was in a target-rich environment on Sunday, and he didn't waste the opportunity. Rock's scathing and generally well-crafted monologue at Sunday's Academy Awards recalled the episode of "Black-ish" that aired on the same network just a few days ago. Rock's opening minutes were entertaining, but they made an array of serious points. "Is Hollywood racist?" he asked at the mid-point of his withering monologue,...

John McCain to a new level. “He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.” The remarks, which came after days of back-and-forth between McCain and Trump, were met with scattered boos.

    I grew up in a blue-collar family in a working class neighborhood (the South Bronx) where just about everybody (if not literally everybody) voted Democratic.

The big issue was civil rights and liberals were on the right side of that one while conservatives – yes, mostly Democrats from the South – were on both the wrong side of history and the wrong side of decency. When the issue of women’s rights came along, I was on board with that too. I didn’t think much about taxes, mainly because I...

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton on Friday was on the last of seven challenges to the 2010 law. The section she upheld allows police in Arizona to check the immigration status of anyone they stop. Bolton ruled that immigration rights activists failed to show that police would enforce the law differently for Hispanics than other people. …

What is it about Donald Trump that allows him to survive any occurrence that no conventional political candidate could? And, not only that, but to use these instances to further galvanize his base of supporters, while growing it? This summer, we have seen example after example of this.

From the moment it was reported that Trump said he wasn't impressed with McCain because he's not impressed with people that get captured,...

    A triumphant and unrepentant Donald Trump launched a barrage of personal attacks and name-calling on his campaign rivals Tuesday, most notably calling South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham an “idiot” handing out Graham’s cell phone number to the whole world He dismissed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush as “weak on immigration,” and mocked Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s glasses and Hillary Clinton’s hand wave. “What a stiff, what a stiff, Lindsey Graham. By the way he has registered zero in the polls,” Trump said, at an appearance in Bluffton, S.C. “A total lightweight. In the private sector, he couldn’t get a job.”...

    Back in 2008 during a HBO comedy special, Comedian Chris Rock, who had never served in the military but supported then Senator Barack Obama made disrespectful comments about Senator John McCain and the GOP establishment never attacked Chris Rock or called on Obama to denounce Rock for his comments about John McCain but they definitely went after Donald Trump. Liberal voters laughed out their seats! Liberal news websites didn’t even report the comedy as news or call out Rock for his act…it just “went away,” until now: “He a war hero. He a war hero,” Rock said of then-GOP presidential...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) said Monday that real-estate developer Donald Trump should apologize for comments he made over the weekend — but not to him. "I think he may owe an apology to the families of those who have sacrificed in conflict and those who have undergone the prison experience in serving our country," McCain said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." McCain was responding to Trump, a GOP presidential candidate who panned his war record over the weekend. Trump ignited a media firestorm by saying McCain was a war hero only because he was captured during the Vietnam War. "He's not...
  • Al Franken 2000 on McCain: I don’t buy the war hero thing. Anybody can be captured

    So the media, liberal hacks and so called Republicans have been bashing Donald Trump all day for speaking the truth about songbird John McCain, the often referred to ‘war-hero.’ Funny, Al Franken, a far left liberal Democrat said something very similar about McCain when he first ran for president in 2000. I doubt I could cross the line and vote Republican. I have tremendous respect for McCain but I don’t buy the war hero thing. Anybody can be captured. I thought the idea was to capture them. As far as I’m concerned he sat out the war. That’s actually worse...

    <p>The line originated in Obama-supporting comedian Chris Rock’s HBO special during the 2008 election.</p> <p>“He a war hero. He a war hero,” Rock said of McCain. “He a war hero that got CAPTURED. There’s a lot of guys in jail that got captured. I don’t want to vote for nobody that got captured.

    If you’ve ever played the shell game – one ball and three half coconuts – then you understand the entire charade behind this so-called economic recovery: deception. Let me introduce you to subtraction, addition’s tricky friend! According to astute celebrities like Chris Rock, only in America could a black President lower the unemployment rate to less than 6%, reduce the price of gas to $2.50 a gallon, end two wars – despite accounting for 75% of all casualties and using the exact same timetable as George Bush – and still somehow be considered a failure. Hmm, well that depends on...

    How Seinfeld became a bad joke: The threat of a hyper-vigilant left-wing outrage machine has been greatly exaggerated Jerry Seinfeld is the latest brave middle-aged white man to weigh in on the “creepy” ascendance of humorless p.c. SJW anti-free-speech scolds. We know the drill now–we’ve heard it from comedians like Seinfeld and Patton Oswalt and, to a lesser degree, Louis C.K. and Chris Rock. We’ve heard it packaged in a different format from Very Serious media commentators like Jonathan Chait, Laura Kipnis and, most recently, an anonymous white male adjunct professor whose left-wing students “terrify” him. It’s a familiar, tired...

    Like Chris Rock and Larry the Cable Guy, Jerry Seinfeld avoids doing shows on college campuses. And while talking with ESPN’s Colin Cowherd on Thursday, the comedian revealed why: College kids today are too politically correct. “I hear that all the time,” Seinfeld said on The Herd with Colin Cowherd. “I don’t play colleges, but I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges. They’re so PC.’” Seinfeld says teens and college-aged kids don’t understand what it means to throw around certain politically-correct terms. “They just want to use these words: ‘That’s racist;’ ‘That’s sexist;’ ‘That’s prejudice,’”...

    Big Surprise Guests Spotted Entering Ed Sullivan Theater for Final Letterman Show When CBS announced the guests for David Letterman’s final run of shows as host of the Late Show, they conspicuously left out any names for the last episode, set to air tonight.

    White Sox Hall of Famer Frank Thomas responded to Rock’s commentary Thursday on Fox Sports 1’s “America’s Pregame.” He believes Major League Baseball has a responsibility to get young African-American players back into the game. “Major League Baseball has got to take initiative and put academies in the inner cities across America,” Thomas said. “(They) do it in the Dominican Republic, (they) do it in Venezuela and as soon as Cuba is open, they’re going to do it in Cuba because those kids play baseball 24/7.
