    Actor John Lithgow wrote an op-ed that appeared in Thursday's New York Times that comes off more like atherapy session of a very angry patient giving vent to his extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome. The surprising thing is that the Times editors seemed to have done nothing to tone down Lithgow's embarrassing rants. The result is the reader is put in the position of a therapist listening to the ranting of an Anger Management patient. His apparent expertise, according to the Times, is as author of the forthcoming poetry book Dumpty: The Age of Trump in Verse. Lithgow's overflowing contempt is...

    The Duke of Sussex gave an impassioned speech backing teenage activist Greta Thunberg today as he declared the world was in a state of 'emergency' and 'losing' the battle against climate change. Harry arrived by the banks of Botswana's Chobe River in the north of the country this morning to take part in a tree-planting project - straining with dozens of people to get a huge sapling into the ground. The Duke stressed saving the environment was a race against time, adding: 'Led by Greta, the world's children are striking.' He said he could not understand why anyone - 'you,...

    Rob Reiner doubled down on his impeachment rhetoric today after the president urged Israel to deny entry to Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. Calling the president “an ignoramus” for “suggesting two duly elected members of Congress be refused entry to Israel,” Reiner claims it’s time to impeach. Well, that’s when he got smacked down by patriotic Americans. You’ll love this. Poor Rob Reiner. The former “All in the Family” star who played the role of “Meathead” gambled and lost big time on his campaign to out President Donald Trump as a Russian asset and spy beholden to Vladimir Putin....

    To the Editor: As a Representative in New Hampshires legislature, I hear from my neighbors every day about the challenges their families face. The time for us to elect a new president is fast approaching, and with this in mind, I believe no candidate is better qualified to address the concerns of the nation and New Hampshire than Elizabeth Warren. I am endorsing Elizabeth for many reasons, but especially because of her Universal Child Care plan. Child care and education have always been important to me, and I know firsthand that the scarcity and cost of high-quality child care is...

    As we told you earlier this week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attempted to dunk on Republicans with a tweet about the GOP posing an older male member of the party next to a cardboard cutout of her. However, AOCs dunk attempt turned into an epic faceplant after it was noticed the Republican in the photo was actually her Democrat colleague, Rep. John Yarmuth. After that, AOC couldnt reach the delete key fast enough. But the MSM being the MSM, ABC News took a Republicans pounce angle to the story, and theyre not alone, as evidenced by USA Today:

    Cindy McCain hit back at conservative blogger and commentator Michelle Malkin on Twitter after Malkin attacked her late husband, Sen. John McCain, Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference. You never knew @SenJohnMcCain . You should be so lucky, the late senators widow tweeted. McCain, an Arizona Republican, supported increased border security but also advocated for compromise. He died in August, and attendees from both sides of the political spectrum gathered to pay their respects as he laid in state in both the Arizona Capitol and the U.S. Capitol Rotunda and for his funeral. The former prisoner of war and...

    Friday on NBCs Today Show, NBC and MSNBC host Chuck Todd boasted about the significance of a Buzzfeed story reporting President Donald Trump directed his then-legal counsel Michael Cohen to lie about a real estate project in Russia. Todd told NBCs Savannah Guthrie that one couldnt overstate the significance of the report. In the Trump era we have a hard time sometimes under-calibrating and everybody is like, Oh my God, oh my God this is it, this is it,' Todd said. You cant overstate how significant this development is, with the caveat of if true. I mean, a...

    As the Prince of Wales accompanied Meghan towards the altar, where Harry was waiting, Handels Eternal Source Of Light Divine played. The spell-binding cantata was sung in Windsor Castles St Georges Chapel by Welsh soprano Elin Manahan and featured David Blackadder as the trumpet soloist. The Duke of Sussex has revealed he picked the poignant music his wife walked down the aisle to. Harry, speaking in the audio commentary notes for a new Windsor Castle exhibition about his wedding, said: I was looking for something completely different and ended up stumbling across this piece of music. Something that epitomises the...

    In many ways Austin, Texas, was the last place Beto ORourke should have been with just over a month left until a pivotal U.S. Senate election. The deep-blue city, smack dab in the middle of a deep-red state, likely doesnt have many of the undecided voters the Democrat, whose aggressive challenge to GOP Sen. Ted Cruz has become somewhat of a national fascination, needs to win this November. So in front of a crowd estimated at 55,000 people, a truly impressive number for a U.S. Senate race, with the Austin skyline behind him, ORourke fired up the crowd with an...

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters alleged Sunday that President Donald Trump is "racist" because he questioned her IQ level. On Saturday night, President Trump addressed the annual Gridiron Club Dinner, an event that is known for its humor. Trump took jabs at his own administration and many of his rivals, and at one point joked that Rep. Waters should "immediately take an IQ test." [Snip] The California Democrat did not think the joke was funny and questioned Trumps own mental agility before accusing him of racism.

    Some of you may find it disturbing that one of Trumps chief apologists was basically saying that he talks policy like a drunk at happy hour. Some of you may hear Trump constantly contradicting today what he said yesterday and decide hes an idiot. From now on Im going to try to think of him as a little bit like my dog, Frieda. Frieda is extremely intelligent, but her memory is only good for about 90 seconds. When you listen to Trumps Inaugural Address, or his first State of the Union, keep reminding yourself that hes reserving the right to...

Dr. Ward said in the statement: The fearmongering has failed, and the will of the British people has prevailed against elite opinion, causing heartburn for Americas ultimate establishment insider, John McCain. Just this week, John has voted to allow the federal government to prowl through our internet browsing histories without a court warrant and to deny self-defense rights based on secret lists without any judicial approval or oversight as required by...

    June 20, 2002 A Scholar Recants on His 'Shakespeare' Discovery By WILLIAM S. NIEDERKORN n 1995 Donald Foster, a professor of English at Vassar College, made a startling case for Shakespeare's being the author of an obscure 578-line poem called "A Funeral Elegy." After a front-page article about his methods of computer analysis in The New York Times and after his reputation was further burnished by unmasking Joe Klein as the author of "Primary Colors" the poem was added to three major editions of Shakespeare's works. Now, in a stunning development that has set the world of Shakespeare...

    I'm feeling bad for Jeb Bush. I've never been a supporter of a third Bush presidency-having endured the highs and lows of the second up close-but I can't help but think about this coming Easter or Thanksgiving, or the next event when the whole Bush family is gathered around in one place. The Bushes may come across as kindly, low-key aristocrats. But have no doubt: They are ruthless competitors. When I worked for President George W. Bush, he was racing Karl Rove to see who could read the most books in a calendar year. His father used to challenge people...

    Tom Cruise has never been shy about expressing his beliefs, and in a recent deposition, the actor said he believed acting was as hard as fighting a war. Cruise sat with lawyers to be deposed for his case against Bauer Publishing for stories two of its publications printed following his divorce from Katie Holmes, articles that stated he had "abandoned" his daughter Suri. During the deposition, a lawyer questioned Cruise about remarks his camp had made equating his work and inability to see daughter Suri to fighting in Afghanistan. "That's what it feels like. And certainly on this last movie,...

    This is in some respects a political show, and we are in the throes of hands-down the most insane presidential race in history. What do you make of it, and more specifically, of the rise of Donald Trump? It seems to me that, given the relentless 24-hour news cycle, it was only a matter of time before we had a media-savvy reality star ascend to this perch. Man, I don't know! Trump leaves me speechless. When he came down that escalator to announce that he was going to run for president, I thought to myself that it was a smart...
