    [Video] Donald Trump recently came out with his proposal for a new tax plan. Every politician comes out with his own plans and proposals, but Jimmy wondered if voters pay any attention to the specifics. So we went out on the street and found people who claimed to support Hillary Clinton and asked those people about her tax plan. What they didn’t

    Ever sit around wondering what Donald Trump's best tweets would sound like sung aloud by award-winning singer-songwriter Josh Groban? Well snap out of it and get up, because that's exactly what you'll hear if you watch the video above.

    ...The dentist, Walter Palmer, has been in hiding since word of the kill was reported in the media last week. Nugent, appearing Sunday on "The Rita Cosby Show" on WABC in New York, said he is dubious of media reports that the lion was lured out of a sanctuary because of the number of untrue statements the media has made about him in the past. If he could talk to Palmer, Nugent said, "I would say I'm sorry that our society has become so dumbed down and so soul-less, as to threaten you and your family's lives, because you killed...

    Splice Today ^ | July 30, 2015 | Todd Seavey
    I think there’s something odd—maybe even phony or at least self-deluding—about people going berserk over that dentist shooting a lion. Even many of the animal-welfare activists themselves are quick to note that while Twitter heaps death threats on the dentist, chickens and cows go on dying by the millions. I am not so inhuman in my utilitarianism as to think people’s outrage and empathy should be turned into an abstract, fine-tuned calculator, divorced from the spectacles immediately before their eyes, but sometimes the contrast between their moments of empathy and their moments of callousness is jarring and strange.

    Left-wing comedian Bill Maher ripped into his own liberal “tribe” in the wake of Wednesday’s Islamist massacre in Paris, accusing them of turning America into a “pussy nation” through their refusal to highlight Islam’s illiberalism. Maher appeared Wednesday night on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss the slaughter, which saw twelve Parisians killed in a revenge attack on satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo after it ran cartoons mocking the Islamic prophet Mohammed. “We have to not avoid who did this,” Maher began. “Who did this, Jimmy?” “Well, we presume —” Kimmel said uncomfortably. “No, it’s not a presume!” Maher said. “It’s...

    It’s not what he’s saying that’s novel — he’s made this point before, and seems to be making it more often lately — but the forum in which he’s saying it. I wonder if there was anyone else featured across the four broadcast networks’ news/current events programming yesterday to raise the point that the “tiny minority of extremists” isn’t so tiny when you consider the raw numbers. Kimmel is uncomfortable from the start, partly because Maher went out there with a point to make rather than engage in the usual dreary late-night banter and partly because he’s violating a...

Whereupon the driver subdues him with a few swings from his handy bat. When the bus finally stops, the police are there to greet the miscreant and lead him away. When Jimmy Kimmel played the clip on his show, the audience reacted with cheers. But when Morning Joe aired it today, Mika declared herself "disturbed." When Mika asked why the clip...

Kimmel posed this question to four kids: "America owes China a lot of money, $1.3 trillion. How should we pay them back" he asked. Right away, one child suggests "killing everyone in China." Kimmel laughed off the comment, joking "that's an interesting idea." He returned to the point later asking "should we allow the Chinese to live?" The boy who had suggested all the Chinese be killed in the...

    In most polls, a majority of Americans say they oppose “Obamacare.” But a number of recent polls suggest that many of those same people are more supportive of the Affordable Care Act. There’s just one problem: They’re the same thing. A recent CNBC poll found 46 percent of respondents said they are opposed to Obamacare. But only 37 percent of the same people taking part in the poll say they oppose the Affordable Care Act. So, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel decided to take the seeming contradiction to the next level by filming a video in which he asked people to...
