    Kathy Griffin accused President Donald Trump and his family of launching a campaign to destroy her life in response to the image she posted earlier this week in which she appeared to be holding the commander-in-chief's severed head. The comedian broke down in tears as she detailed the torrent of abuse she has been receiving online, and the constant death threats which she described as detailed and specific. She stated however that she will not back down from this fight, saying: 'I am not afraid of Donald Trump. He is a bully.' Later in the interview Griffin said that her...

    Pop superstar Katy Perry opened up about her religious upbringing during the Human Rights Campaign’s annual gala dinner in Los Angles Saturday night, explaining that she felt “curious” abut her sexuality while attending Christian youth groups as a child. While accepting the evening’s National Equality Award, the 32-year-old “Roar” singer — who was raised by two pastors and began her singing career in churches — said that she had spent her childhood attempting to “pray the gay away at Jesus camps.” Perry added that the lyrics to her 2008 breakout single “I Kissed a Girl” were just a tease of...

    “We forgot to talk to people,” said Tom Perez, who was secretary of labor until last month and a finalist to be Clinton’s running-mate last summer. “I’m a big believer in data analytics, but data analytics cannot supplant good old fashioned door knocking. . . . We didn’t communicate our values to people. When Donald Trump says, ‘I’m going to bring the coal jobs back,’ we know that’s a lie. But people understand that he feels their pain. And our response was: ‘Vote for us because he’s crazy.’ I’ll stipulate to that, but that’s not a message.” Many Democratic leaders...

    According to Branson, “Barack started learning to kitesurf on the beach on Necker for two days solid, picking up the basics and flying a kite as if going back to being a child again.” “Then he went into the water, standing up and getting a feel for the kite,” he told The Sun. “Finally, he put the board at his feet and gave it a go.” “Being the former president of America, there was lots of security around, but Barack was able to really relax and get into it.”
  • Social Media Thinks the Obamas Are Never Coming Back Because of Their Outfits

    On Tuesday night, Huffington Post editor Philip Lewis shared a video on Twitter of Barack and Michelle Obama on vacation on Richard Branson’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands. And the Internet wasted no time in reading between the lines of their casual beachside style. The former president was sporting a backward hat, while Michelle was rocking denim cutoffs and toting a woven beach bag. “Obama’s on vacation with the hat backwards. He’s never coming back,” the tweet that started the speculation reads. And the Twitterverse quickly agreed. Others turned their attention to the former first lady, whose signature...

    Former President Barack Obama’s office released a statement Monday supporting the protests going on around the country, and speaking out against discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion, saying “American values are at stake.” Kevin Lewis, spokesman for Obama in his post-presidency, said that Obama — who has been threading the balance between the tradition of presidents deferring to their successors and coming out against President Donald Trump on specific issues he considered core values — “is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country.” It is Obama's first statement since leaving the...

    When Jon Stewart left The Daily Show last year he left a major void in the late night television landscape. Not only was Stewart considered one of the most sharp political satirists on television, but he also hates Donald Trump. The two have a long-standing rivalry.... “Look I don’t even know if Donald Trump is eligible to be President — that’s not a birther thing,” Stewart said. “I’m not a constitutional scholar so I can’t necessarily say, but are you eligible to run if you are a man-baby or a baby man?”

    Rick Santorum won primaries and caucuses in 11 states in 2012, coming in a respectable second in the GOP presidential primary season. And Republicans have a history of bestowing their nomination on the next guy in line, usually an also-ran from the last contest. Yet the former senator from Pennsylvania is rarely mentioned in the already feverish pre-game 2016 chatter among the political commentariat and the donor class. That’s just the way he likes it. Or so he says. “America loves an underdog. We’re definitely the underdog in this race,” he said in an interview Tuesday. Santorum added that being...
