    Pop the corn... Last night during an appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel delivered a question from Bernie Sanders. It’s seems Bernie wanted to know if Trump was willing to attend the now-cancelled debate in which Hillary was too scared to participate. Trump said “yes,” as long as the event generated some money for charity. What exactly constitutes a “nice sum” has not been revealed, but Bernie wasted no time in issuing a response. He’s ready to rumble.

    Donald Trump's tax plan is so friendly to low-income Americans that even Hillary Clinton fans can be tricked into supporting it, comedian Jimmy Kimmel discovered this week. The Jimmy Kimmel Live host decided to punk a group of Hillary voters, walking the streets of Hollywood, by sending out a staffer and having him list off parts of Trump's tax plan – but say it was Clinton's instead. Kimmel's guy ticked off parts of the plan – liberal-friendly items like no taxes for low-income workers, and conservative red meat like killing off the death tax – and received a chorus of...

    .... Unhinged liberals and #NeverTrump Cruz supporters thought that was hilarious. The Hill reported: “ Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Wednesday joked that he would consider backing over rival Donald Trump with his car if chance arose. Appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Cruz was asked by Kimmel whom he disliked more: President Obama or Trump. “I dislike Obama’s policies more. Donald is a unique individual,” he said, trailing off to laughter. “If I were in my car and getting ready to reverse and saw Donald in the backup camera, I’m not confident which pedal I’d push.”Trump last week launched...

    I saw a segment last week of Ted Cruz on the Jimmy Kimmel show. Kimmel asked Cruz about his proposal to monitor Muslim neighborhoods. Cruz answered, and then, not surprisingly, Kimmel asked whether or not monitoring those neighborhoods would just create more terrorists. In the end Kimmel stated that they would have to agree to disagree. While theoretically it is possible that monitoring Muslim neighborhoods could, possibly, maybe, create terrorists from erstwhile peaceful Muslims, in the less theoretical real world Islamist terrorists are killing people and they’re often living in unmonitored Muslim neighborhoods. Indeed, Europe is chock full of no...

    Joe Biden is in Los Angeles this week, but someone ought to tell him that he shouldn’t expect to be recognized by too many of the locals. During his ABC show Monday, late night host Jimmy Kimmel aired a rather funny video of one of his staff asking Angelenos to identify Biden. Not a single one of those interviewed (which, in fairness, was slightly less than the entire population of Los Angeles) knew Biden was the Vice President of the United States. We’re not sure if the segment is a testament to deceptive film-making, the irrelevance of Biden, the stupidity...

    President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama flew to Los Angeles on Thursday for TV appearances but took separate flights, collectively costing taxpayers at least $1 million. The president went to appear live on comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night show on ABC, while the first lady went to Warner Bros.’ studios in nearby Burbank to tape an appearance on Ellen Degeneres’ popular daytime show that is scheduled to air on Monday. Obama traveled on Air Force One, which reportedly costs taxpayers at least $200,000 per flight hour. So the price of his five-hour, coast-to-coast trip will be roughly $1 million. The...

    One gallon of jet fuel burned creates about 19 pounds of C02. A 747 burns about 25,000 pounds of fuel per hour. A round trip from Washington DC to LA would take about 11- 11 1/2 hours. That comes to about 287,000 pounds of fuel. And that results in the production of about 5,462,500 pounds of CO2. A 757 burns about 6,000 pounds of jet fuel per hour. A similar round trip to LA would burn about 69,000 pounds of fuel and create about 1,310,000 pounds of CO2. Barack Obama and Michelle Obama both traveled to Los Angeles on the...

    Jimmy Kimmel, the popular late-night TV host on ABC, has hyped his belief in global warming with an F-bomb-filled video that also makes fun of the new “Climate Hustle” documentary that reveals the fallacies on which the beliefs are based. WND had reported in the runup to the movie’s release on Monday that the public nowadays is hearing fewer and fewer facts about global warming, but more and more about what people “believe.” As in religion. In a one-night nationwide theatrical engagement on Monday, “Climate Hustle,” aimed to pull back the veil on a movement that even some of its...

    In President Me, Adam Carolla takes the pulse of the social contract, a pulse that is slackening. Narcissism is the sapping beast. Carolla sees an insidious minority that has turned out to be “assholes.” Predictably, the trait has infiltrated what is now known anachronistically as “the fabric of society.” The death of God, absent fathers, subversive pop culture, unassimilated immigration, and infantilizing, cradle/grave government all factor as threats to destroy from within America’s exceptionalist sovereignty. Carolla’s admonition is about a stratum of quasi-pathological narcissism breeding within our culture.

    On his Wednesday podcast, comedian Adam Carolla dissected the reactions to last Saturday’s “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. Some of the media reaction that followed suggested the justice system had failed Trayvon Martin, the black 19-year-old shot by Zimmerman in February 2012. Carolla, author of “Not Taco Bell Material,” reacted to those remarks, saying that in some ways skin color and other physical attributes are something that will have to be overcome. “I’m willing to admit there’s a certain amount of racism,” Carolla said. “It’s not nearly — it’s not nearly what the news builds it up...

    The only surprise in the left's new attack on podcast king Adam Carolla is why it took so long to happen. Carolla took on Calif. Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom during a recent podcast, challenging the liberal politician on his assertion that check cashing stores directly harm Blacks and Latinos. Carolla jumped in, asking Newsom why those two groups in particular lacked access to ATMs and checking accounts. The podcaster aggressively questioned Newsom, saying those groups suffer disproportionately from broken families, a condition that leaves them vulnerable to the kind of predatory practices employed by check-cashing outlets. Newsom wouldn't engage in...

    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.
