    Celebrities have opinions they like to share. Sometimes, what they have to say comes and goes without a blink, and other times it dominates a news cycle. In most cases, their thoughts are insignificant and don’t matter. President Trump is attacked on a regular basis by alleged comedians on late night talk shows. Jimmy Kimmel is one of Trump’s most prominent attackers. But has Kimmel become bored with his verbal assaults? Recently, Deadline interviewed Kimmel. He was asked if there was a “barrel full of barbs” for Trump in his upcoming ABC standup routine show. He surprisingly said he only...

    Jerry Seinfeld isn’t interested in Donald Trump jokes. The comedian behind the legendary Seinfeld sitcom sat down with David Letterman for an upcoming episode of the Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. Perhaps hopefully, Letterman wondered, “Do you do Trump stuff when you go out?” Seinfeld shut down this topic by humorously changing the subject: “No, it doesn’t interest me. I do a lot of raisin stuff.” He joked: I just think that it’s interesting that after 80 years, Sun-Maid finally went, 'Hey, why don’t we put some chocolate on it?' Imagine not thinking of that for 80...
  • Is SNL nearing the end of its run?

    Saturday Night Live hasn’t been running for my entire life, but sometimes it feels that way. When the show debuted I was still in high school, as hard as that is to believe today. I’ll definitely confess to being a fan of SNL early on, particularly when Belushi was still with them, though I sort of lost track of the show in the 80s and 90s. But after all these years, is the seemingly eternal Saturday night offering from NBC finally on its last legs?Christian Toto seems to think it’s possible. Not for a lack of advertising revenue or even...

    An old, blind cowboy wanders into an all-girl biker bar by mistake. He finds his way to a bar stool and orders a shot of Jack Daniels. After sitting there for a while, he yells to the bartender, 'Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?' The bar immediately falls absolutely silent… In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says, 'Before you tell that joke, Cowboy, I think it is only fair, Given that you are blind, that you should know five things: 1. The bartender is a blonde girl with a baseball bat. 2. The bouncer...

    Ladies and Gentlemen of the deplorable world, these donkeys hee-hawing, patting each other on the back and slapping their knees with their flimsy paper programmes are what’s being passed off as the fourth Estate! While the fake stars of the mainstream media were all making fools of themselves laughing themselves to hiccup stage at smears pretending to be jokes during Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, guess what their conspicuously absent ’Guest of Honor’ was doing? Putting the run to the Feds in Public Education. That’s what! “The Trump Administration announced today that it will began taking steps to...
  • Watch: The Hannibal Buress Comedy Set that Triggered Bill Cosby’s Downfall

    Standup comic Hannibal Buress, whose 2014 remark about sexual-assault accusations against Bill Cosby went viral, is getting another serious surge of attention. The path to Cosby’s conviction on Thursday on charges he drugged and molested a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home arguably started 3 1/2 years earlier in a Philadelphia comedy club, where Buress during his standup act mocked Cosby’s smug preachiness and called him a rapist. “I’ve done this bit on stage, and people think I’m making it up,” Burress said. “Bill Cosby has a lot of rape allegations. … When you leave here, Google ‘Bill Cosby rape.’”...

    One of the greatest comic minds of the twentieth century, Mel Brooks, said late last year that "stupid political correctness" would be "the death of comedy." "It's not good for comedy," Brooks said in September 2017.  "Comedy has to walk a thin line, take risks.  Comedy is the lecherous little elf whispering in the king's ear, always telling the truth about human behavior." It's safe to say Brooks speaks from a podium of unparalleled wisdom on this matter.  His movie Blazing Saddles remains one of the least politically correct movies Hollywood has ever made.  It's also probably the funniest.  Brooks has said that that "political correctness...

  • I just heard that there might be "Russian Collusion" between Trump and the Russians

    04/05/2018 4:16:29 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 53 replies
    I think Trump has done a splendid job so far as president of the United States. However, I heard just today that there is a possibility that there might be some collusion (col-u-son) between Trump and the Russians. Apparently the Russians wanted Donald Trump to be president just as much as we did and so they did some collusion type things to make sure that Trump won the election. I'm not quite sure what kind of things they were but it could be that Russians were sent over here during the election to dance outside of Trump tower and hold...

"It's not a bluff, trust me."...Another new weapon Putin unveiled during the state-of-the-nation speech, called Avangard, is an intercontinental hypersonic missile that would fly at 20 times the speed of sound and strike its targets "like a meteorite, like a fireball.”

    SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who has been a leading opponent of President Trump on Capitol Hill, told thousands of Democratic activists and officials “to get ready for impeachment.” Speaking at the California Democratic Party’s annual convention in San Diego, Waters said that she believes special counsel Robert Mueller, who’s been helming the investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 election, is “getter closer” to figuring out who colluded with Russia. "I say it is time to get ready for impeachment," Waters said to roaring applause. “I cannot wait and I’m counting on special counsel Mueller to...

    Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we're kids? <>If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about aging that you think in fractions. 'How old are you?' ' I'm four and a half!' You're never thirty-six and a half. You're four and a half, going on five! That's the key. You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead. 'How old are you?' 'I'm gonna be 16!' You could be 13, but hey,...

But his focus was not on the athletes. “The stars of the Olympics so far are the cheerleaders from North Korea,” the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host declared, referring to the cheerleading “army” Kim Jong Un sent as part of the North Korean delegation to the Games.
