    ORLANDO, Fla. - A woman said she felt fat-shamed when she was unable to ride Skull Island: Reign of Kong at Universal's Islands of Adventure. Angel Morales said she asked workers if she could ride the ride bench with one fewer person so that she wouldn't make anyone sitting beside her feel uncomfortable. Morales said she felt humiliated when employees declined her request. The theme park doesn't have weight restrictions, so Morales said she didn't know she couldn't go on the ride until she was about to board it. Morales said she bought annual passes to the park last year...

    President Trump admitted he couldn’t help himself but take a shot at filmmaker Michael Moore’s Broadway show, which closed last week. Moore’s one-man show "The Terms of My Surrender" essentially was an opportunity for the Michigan documentarian to take shots at Trump on a nightly basis. It closed after its final performance on Oct. 22. Trump was delighted at its ending. “While not at all presidential I must point out that the Sloppy Michael Moore Show on Broadway was a TOTAL BOMB and was forced to close. Sad!” Trump tweeted. " While not at all presidential I must point out...

    No more backwards hats for Barack Obama. The former president and wife Michelle Obama returned home to their new $4.3 million home in Washington, D.C. on Thursday night after enjoying a post-presidency vacation in Palm Springs and the British Virgin Islands. The former first couple, who spent the past 10 days on Virgin billionaire Richard Bransons private island, flew out from Tortuga island by helicopter on Thursday before boarding Bransons jet headed for Washington. Later, their motorcade was seen pulling up to their nine-bedroom mansion in Washingtons Kalorama neighborhood, where a neighbor had posted a welcome home sign, according to...

    While speaking at the Women's March in Washington, D.C. this morning, liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore addressed the crowd and gave them some advice for what they should do when it comes to the Democratic Party in the future. "We have to take over the Democratic Party," Moore exclaimed. [Snip] The Roger and Me auteur railed against the "old guard" of the Democratic Party and said that the party needed more people of color and those in the LGBT community to run for office and take positions of leadership.

    Donald Trump ripped Rosie ODonnell during the first Republican presidential debate in 2015, saying that she was the only woman about whom he had ever made disparaging comments. Now, with less than 10 days until Trump takes the oath of office, ODonnell says that shed support martial law in order to delay his inauguration. FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW DELAYING THE INAUGURATION UNTIL TRUMP IS CLEARED OF ALL CHARGES, ODonnell wrote in response to a Twitter user who suggested the U.S. military take control of the government until the president-elect can prove he has no financial ties to...

    Come this time of year, its usually the holidays that lead to overeating. But now another event has some people packing on the pounds: the election of Donald Trump. From Massachusetts General Hospitals Weight Center, to a pilates studio in Belmont, to a South End bakery, some Hillary Clinton supporters have taken to stress eating, bigly. The response is similar to what you see after a divorce or a death in the family, said Fatima Cody Stanford, an obesity-medicine physician at MGHs Weight Center. Numb and fearful patients are backsliding into comfort food, she said, adding that its too early...

    Following the win by Donald Trump in the presidential election, Oscar-winning filmmaker Michael Moore has been making the rounds on cable news talking about the shocking result. Speaking with CNN's Don Lemon Thursday night, Moore showed footage he took on his phone while marching with protesters of Trump's win in New York City, and also touched on the low voter turnout in this year's election. "A lot of people have given up," Moore told Lemon.

    Earlier this week, veteran documentarian Michael Moore delivered his own October Surprise. The Oscar-winning documentarian and legendary muckraker suddenly announced the release of a previously unannounced project: Michael Moore in TrumpLand, a new film culled from two one-man shows the director performed earlier this month in the predominantly Republican town of Wilmington, Ohio. Shot, edited and released in less than two weeks, the movie largely avoids haranguing the Republican presidential nominee, with Moore devoting most of the film to Clinton's virtues alongside polemics about the decline of the "angry white male" and need for increased gun control regulations. (The film...

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) A Michigan woman has been sentenced to three to seven years in prison for opening fire at a McDonald's restaurant after workers twice failed to put bacon on her burgers. Authorities say 30-year-old Shaneka Torres became angry in February 2014 when the first burger she ordered at the restaurant's drive-up station was missing bacon. She was offered a free meal, but bacon also wasn't added to a second burger order.

    Republicans arent talking about Chris Christie. The New Jersey governors name has been conspicuously omitted during speeches given by key GOP figures during a Republican National Committee meeting in San Diego this week, a GOP official confirmed to The Daily Caller on Thursday. None of the speeches so far have mentioned Christie, the source said, noting Christie was kept out of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus opening remarks. In Governor Mary Fallins speech last night, the source went on, she rattled off a bunch of governors running for president but left Christie out.

    The tubby dictator has become hooked on Emmental - and appeared on TV with a swollen face and a limp at a recent ceremony in the capital Pyongyang. Portly despot Kim Jong-un is absolutely crackers about Swiss cheese. The tubby North Korean dictator has become hooked on Emmental and has gorged on so much that he has ballooned in size and is now walking with a limp. The 31-year-old fell in love with the holey treat when he was a student in Switzerland. He now imports it for his own consumption, while millions of his citizens starve. A gloomy...

    Michael Moore, the habitual liar, has taken to the New York Times to declare that "Obamacare is awful," yet also a "godsend." Writing an article in the NYT, entitled The Obamacare we deserve," Moore denounced the Presidents signature legislation, then encouraged it. The laws awfulness is the Lefts dirty little secret, Moore says. He continued that, instead of righteously blaming corporations for much of the problems, Democrats instead over-promised and under-delivered. Eventually, Moore reveals the laws fatal flaw: I believe Obamacares rocky start clueless planning, a lousy website, insurance companies raising rates, and the presidents telling people they could...

    Oprah Winfrey's conception of what constitutes racism is strangely egocentric. An assistant at a designer store in Switzerland did not recognize her and ignored her, so Winfrey assumed with her worldwide fame the incident reflected a racist attitude from the clerk. Winfrey related the incident when she spoke to Entertainment Tonight about Paula Deen's recent loss of work following her admission that she had used the N-word. Winfrey said of Deen, whose home she had stayed at when she interviewed her for Oprah's Next Chapter show, "In the very first days I tried to reach her and then I decided...
