    Sometimes crossed signals can result in communication that go horribly and, in the case of comedian Chris Rock, hilariously wrong. What made the misunderstanding so funny is that it happened at the final White House party hosted by President Barack Obama. And the person with whom the signals were so horribly/hilariously misunderstood was First Lady Michelle Obama.  Chris Rock revealed what happened on the May 2 Tonight Show while recounting the laugh error to host Jimmy Fallon.

    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,...

    Guests at the first American Black Film Festival Honors are ready for Chris Rock to shake up the Oscars. Don Cheadle, Ice Cube, Adina Porter and Michelle Mitchenor are among the entertainers eager to hear the comedian's take on Hollywood's diversity crisis when he hosts Sunday's Academy Awards. "I think this could be a watershed moment for what he does, and there's nobody better suited to do it, so I hope he goes in," Cheadle said Sunday at the inaugural ABFF awards ceremony, where he accepted the Excellence in the Arts award. "I hope he skewers everybody, which is what...

    upcoming Academy Awards telecast may be caught between Chris Rock and a hard place. The comic actor is facing pressure to bow out as host of the 88th annual Oscars — with less than six weeks to go before the Feb. 28 telecast — over the mounting calls for boycotting the awards in response to the lack of diversity among the Oscar nominees. On Monday’s holiday celebrating Martin Luther King Jr., both Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith announced they would not be attending the Academy Awards to protest a second straight year without a black actor receiving a single...

    Donald Trump says it would be "very interesting" to ask Bill Clinton how he was different from Bill Cosby. Asked on the Howie Carr Show on Monday if there is a difference between Clinton and Cosby, Trump said, "Well, the Cosby thing is a weird deal and he's got himself some big problems, and you almost have to ask Bill Clinton that question. It would be a very interesting question to some day ask him. Certainly he has a lot of strong charges against him and it's pretty bad stuff. And it only got brought up because she said I...

    Having dodged this bullet before and because no Democrat raised this issue when she ran in 2000 Hillary must have figured the MSM would cut off discussion of Bill's record of sexual assault and rape ... and Hillary's role in silencing his victims. It is obvious the Clinton-enabling MSM wants to substitute "marital infidelity" and "consensual blow jobs" for serial rape, serial sexual assault and Hillary's criminal terror campaigns to silence Bills victims . This isn’t about infidelity or consensual sex. It's not about adultery or "pain in the Clinton marriage." It's not about Bill"s girlfriends, mistresses or one-night stands....

    Karl Rove, who served as an adviser to former President George W. Bush, warned Republicans that nominating Donald Trump could be a death wish for the party. In a Wall Street Journal column published Friday, Rove acknowledged Trump's consistently strong standing among Republicans in the polls, and the impressively high percentage of backers -- 46 percent, according to a recent Quinnipiac poll -- who say they won't stray from Trump before the primaries. Hitting Trump for his antics -- citing the Republican presidential candidate's beef with Fox News host Megyn Kelly and insults of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for being...

    Donald Trump might finally have crossed the line. Appearing on Saturday at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, the real estate mogul took his running feud with Arizona Sen. 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. In college, I was a liberal – and proud of it. 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...

    Last week, National Review’s Jim Geraghty published what may be the most insightful essay yet [1] on the difference between the conservative movement and Donald Trump and his followers. Geraghty has noticed a telling reticence on Trump’s part to utter such words as “freedom” or “liberty.” By contrast, Geraghty notes that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker used the word “freedom” six times in the 179-word announcement of his plan to replace ObamaCare, and Ted Cruz used “freedom” twice and “liberty” eleven times in his announcement speech at Liberty University, not counting references to the university itself.The reason for this lack of...

    GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump will never win the White House because he is playing to aging white voters and turning off blacks and Hispanics, U.S. Sen. John McCain said. “I don’t think he could win the White House because we have to attract voters,” McCain said on Herald Radio’s “Morning Meeting” show yesterday. “We have an aging white population in America and a growing Hispanic and African-American population and we have to reach out to them.”
