    President-elect Donald Trump wasnt the only one who was angry with this past weekends episode of Saturday Night Live, but his voice was loud enough to drown out those of many other dissenters for a few days. During the Weekend Update segment, co-anchor Colin Jost made what may have seemed to many like a routine joke playing off both Tinders recent update and Democrat Hillary Clinton loss in the presidential election. The dating app Tinder announced a new feature this week, which gives users 37 different gender identity options, Jost set up the joke, his permanent smirk on prominent display....
  • Jimmy Kimmel mocks political correctness in Thanksgiving skit

    11/23/2016 11:42:56 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 9 replies
    Jimmy Kimmel poked fun at political correctness in a Thanksgiving skit on his late night show Monday. "Most of us are familiar with the traditional tale of the first Thanksgiving... but this is not 1621 this is 2016 and some of the story is out of date," Kimmel said. "So we thought it might be a good idea to update the story of Thanksgiving to reflect our modern sensitivities." The "Jimmy Kimmel Live" host enlisted the help of a few students from Edward James Olmos Elementary School to help him tell the PC tale. The skit opens with a student...

    Breitbart ^ | 11/22/2016 | Jerome Hudson
    The latest episode of Saturday Night Live saw its ratings drop to a season low with the return of host Kristen Wiig and actor Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump. Saturdays installment of SNL drew 4.7 million overall household viewers and 2.2 million among the oft-coveted 18-49 demographic. Those numbers are down substantially from last weeks overall and 18-49 viewership of 6.2 million and 3.9 million, respectfully. The show featured Baldwin as President-elect Trump, so ignorant of foreign policy that he had to Google the meaning of ISIS. The Weekend Update segment of the show was used to mock Breitbart News...

Baldwin added: "I'm not an impressionist, per se, but if you do any kind of comedy and they ask you to do that, most of the time, there's some degree of appreciation, I think, involving somebody you like. Trump is somebody who, I don't hate Trump, but he's not somebody I admire, so it was more difficult." Us Weekly reached out to NBC, which had no comment.

    A leaked email from the personal account of Capricia Penavic Marshall, who worked under Hillary Clinton at the State Department, shows that the Clinton Foundation was in contact with comedian John Oliver as far back as February 2015. The hacked email, which was unearthed by the DC Leaks outfit, suggests some level of collusion between the Clintons, HBO and the British television host. As presenter of the popular HBO show Last Week Tonight, Oliver has made a name for himself with a series of anti-Donald Trump monologues, including one that made global headlines when he revealed that the Trump family...

He had me write one-liners for his stand-up as well, but used almost none of them. Maybe they weren't funny enough, but he didn't need them. Pryor didn't...

To date, scientists have mostly worried about the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets as dangerous drivers of sea level rise. But the new study, following up on earlier work by the same team, has identified a third major threat to hundreds of millions of people living in coastal areas around the world. "I predict that before the end of the century the great global cities of...

But you laugh at them when they are goose-stepping down the street and it takes away their power," he said. "So I am suggesting that the Senate send in Amy Schumer and Chris Rock and Sacha Baron Cohen, thank you."

    The operating assumption for political observers going into the 2016 election has been that Sen. Ted Cruz doesn't stand a chance to win a general election. But now that the odds have increased of him actually being the Republican nominee, it's worth revisiting that assumption. There are no doubt a number of good arguments as to why Cruz would be too polarizing to win a general election, particularly given how the nation's demographic trends favor Democrats. There's a reason why the smart money would be betting against him. But let's entertain an alternate possibility. To start, of all the Republicans,...

The mood of the photo essay is a strange one: Jackie Gleason’s soon-to-be hit show The Honeymooners was about to hit the airwaves, but the star’s look in the pages of that 1955 issue of LIFE was melancholy. The entertainer, as the magazine explained, had “just become, by financial standards at least, history’s greatest comedian.” He was raking in millions between his weekly Jackie Gleason Show and new contracts with Buick and CBS for The Honeymooners....

I attended his show last year when he came to Scottsdale, Arizona, and have never laughed so hard. Dennis Prager calls him "The funniest man in America."

    Contrary to what some bloggers (many of whom support Donald Trump’s presidential campaign) and the Internet rumor mill have been saying, Sen. Ted Cruz does not support federal regulation of home schooling.The source of the myth is Cruz’s co-sponsorship of S.306, a bill introduced during this session of Congress by Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT). Some form of the bill has been introduced since 2000, but the measure has never been controversial until presidential campaign politics intervened. What the measure does is expand who can use Coverdell education savings accounts by clarifying that for the purpose of Coverdell expenses only, the...
