    Not fair! Only liberals are allowed to make fun of conservatives. That's the way it has always been so when someone like Donald Trump  jokes about liberals it is absolutely intolerable. Not only is it offensive but dangerous since jokes won the election for Trump. That pretty much sums up the attitude of New Yorker television critic, Emily Nussbaum, in her January 23 article. Somehow it is just not right that liberals are mocked. Nussbaum is so upset by this cultural turnaround that she even attributes it to making Trump's victory possible as you can see in the title of...

    Poynter’s James Warren (a former Chicago Tribune managing editor) has turned to the next press horror under President Trump: “What will the White House correspondents’ dinner look like under President Trump?” Warren admitted “It seems way off — April 29, 2017 — but the election of Donald Trump is already raising questions and some fears among [White House Correspondents] association members.” "This is unchartered [sic] territory," said a former WHCA board member who's discussed the matter with board members. "We've never had a businessman-reality TV star as president, somebody who understands the importance of this particular event." That sounds a...

    Newly announced Saturday Night Live cast member Melissa Villaseñor — the first Latina cast member in the show’s four-decade history — has come under fire for apparently deleting thousands of tweets from her social media account that critics have deemed racist. The tweets from the 28-year-old Mexican-American comedian — who joined the cast of NBC’s long-running sketch show earlier this month — were first noticed by Grist writer Aura Bogado, who pointed them out on Twitter.

    A Michigan rodeo clown is out of a job after he joked about gender identity at the Calhoun County Fair last week. “You’re either a boy or a girl, y’all understand,” “Rockin’ Robbie Hodges told the audience Thursday. “If you’re confused, then you need help, OK?” Some audience members appeared to laugh at the joke, but an attendee who recorded the skit said many people left out of protest, a local NBC News affiliate reported. Megan Harvey, the executive director for the Calhoun County Fair, said she was disappointed by the comments. “I was very disappointed, because we do not...

    Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres defended herself on Tuesday after some claimed that a humorous Usain Bolt tweet sent out from her social media accounts a day earlier was racist. “I am highly aware of the racism that exists in our country,” @TheEllenShow tweeted. “It is the furthest thing from who I am.” DeGeneres’ popular Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts often feature funny images that have been altered to include her. On Monday, her accounts sent out a picture of her riding on Bolt’s back during Sunday’s 100 meter semifinal with the suggestion she’d like to use the Jamaican sprinter’s...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: It's amazing. There is a joint party meltdown going on over Trump's press conference, particularly one tongue-in-cheek comment. One tongue-in-cheek comment, which has served the purpose of refocusing everybody's attention on Hillary's emails, is causing a multiple-party and multiple-movement meltdown, both on cable news and on social media. Again, just to restate -- and I have not forgotten that I sent you out to round up a bunch of Millennial women to hear. We're improv here, and we'll get to it when I get to it. I intended to be done with it by now, but things...

    I've already written about the Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume before, but that was before we got a chance to see the actual costume! For just a moment, look at what the LGBT reaction shows about the radical Left. After educating us that men can "feel" like a woman at any time in their lives you would think they would support such an effort on Halloween. Think of it as a one-night trial run! But liberals are incensed even by the very description of the product: The Jenner costume comes with a white padded top, matching shorts, a brunette wig,...

    In an interview with Yahoo News surrounding the 40th anniversary of his comedic masterpiece "Blazing Saddles," co-writer/director Mel Brooks blasted present-day political correctness and says he was "lucky" to have made the film in the days when he still could: "They can't make that movie today because everybody's so politically correct. You know, the NAACP would stop a great movie that would do such a great service to black people because of the N-word," says Brooks. "You've got to really examine these things and see what's right and what's wrong. Politically correct is absolutely wrong. Because it inhibits the freedom...

    TUCUMCARI, N.M. - Most Presidential libraries are constructed after the President completes his term. However, according to KOAT-ABC, a New Mexico man has determined the location for President Obama's library and has marked it with a sign that is sparking controversy in one small town. The sign rests on top of an outhouse. It reads: Obama's Presidential Library. Some in town view the sign as bad taste while others are supportive. One man told a local reporter that folks are treating it as a tourist destination and that it is frequently photographed. The man responsible for the sign would not...

    Missouri officials say they will look into whether school district employees engaged in "offensive conduct or remarks" in a controversial state fair rodeo skit. Missouri State Fair officials have banned a rodeo clown for life from the fair for the skit in which he wore a Barack Obama mask and taunted a bull. The state fair commission apologized Sunday for the clown's performance at the taxpayer-funded state fair in Sedalia. Mark Ficken resigned Tuesday as president of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association after fair officials fired the clown for what it called "disrespectful" treatment of the president. Ficken, who was...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri State Fair on Monday imposed a lifetime ban on a rodeo clown whose depiction of President Barack Obama getting charged by a bull was widely criticized by Democratic and Republican officials alike. The rodeo clown won't be allowed to participate or perform at the fair again. Fair officials say they're also reviewing whether to take any action against the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, the contractor responsible for Saturday's event. The entertainment during the bull riding contest featured a clown wearing a mask of Obama with an upside down broomstick attached to his backside....

    HUNTSVILLE, Utah — A parade entry portraying President Barack Obama and using the term “Obamanation” has made some angry, and others upset at the negative attention. It happened in the city’s annual Fourth of July parade. The float showed a person dressed as President Obama with one sign that read “Huntsville Welcomes Obama’s Farewell Tour?” On the back, another sign said, “Ask about our assault gun plan. Call Eric Holder.” On one side of the issue, people are saying the float was disrespectful and had no place in a patriotic parade. The other side says it was all in good...

    Richard Grenell, a new foreign policy and national security spokesman for the Mitt Romney campaign, has embarked on quite the deleting spree over the weekend. Almost 1,000 of his tweets? Gone. His personal website? Gone. Why? Probably something to do with the fact that a lot of his tweets have been controversial. He tells Politico: my tweets were written to be tongue-in-cheek and humorous but I can now see how they can also be hurtful. I didn’t mean them that way and will remove them from twitter. I apologize for any hurt they caused. Some of his favorite targets: Various...

    Oh brother. Would someone please tell this guy to stop trying to be just one of the guys. It’s an unforced error my little mobsters. but is it as bad as the young president laughing at the stimulus failure? The comment came at some kind of coffee shop in Tampa, Florida as Mitt continues to pile up the endorsements, the cash, and the poll numbers. So generally when you’re leading the pack it’s best just to keep plugging away on your plan and the President’s failures. But instead some staffer must’ve said, “Gov, you need to loosen up.” Well Governor...
