    Michael Moore went on the View and threw around the names of celebrities who he believes could beat Donald Trump in the next presidential election. Moore, who was introduced by Joy Behar as her 'favorite agitator,' shared his ideas on why a celebrity could win the White House for the Democratic party, declaring, 'We need to run a beloved American in 2020.' 'If we ran Al Franken, ran Tom Hanks — who wouldn't vote for Tom Hanks for president of the United States? C'mon! Or Oprah!' Moore exclaimed. Hanks previously joked about running alongside Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson during an...
  • How Did John Steinbeck And An Obama Staffer Get The Bible So Wrong?

    Working for Barack Obama can be a career maker, but Hebrew readers have been puzzled by the explanation for the path that one former staffer took. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Michael Slaby, whom the newspaper described as “among the key tech gurus for Barack Obama’s two presidential campaigns,” has founded a startup called Timshel that helps not-for-profits and activist groups use digital tools to increase their analytic capabilities. Sounds good. But where, exactly, does the name Timshel come from? “It’s a reference to [Steinbeck’s] ‘East of Eden’ — the Hebrew word for “Thou mayest” from the Bible [in the...

    The Oscar-winning actor has been tight-lipped about the luxurious French Polynesian yacht cruise he went on with TV host Winfrey, rock legend Bruce Springsteen and the former U.S. President and First Lady, earlier this month (Apr17). But during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday (28Apr17), Hanks divulged that the trip was better than most people could ever imagine. "That made the news, it was really interesting. Both Oprah and I were really p***ed off," the 60-year-old joked. "Look, imagine what it could've been like it, triple it. It was off the scale, fantastic." Winfrey previously...

    Megyn Kelly grew tired of combative hard news reporting and now wants “to help people the way Oprah did” on her new NBC show, sources tell Page Six. After signing a deal with NBC worth between $12 million and $15 million, Kelly’s plans for her new show have been shrouded in secrecy. NBC brass are interviewing executive producers in the hopes that Kelly will debut in September at either 9 or 10 a.m. in front of a live studio audience. A source told us, “There was a lot of tough news to report on her show at Fox News. A lot of...
  • 2020: Oprah Winfrey vs. Donald Trump?

    Recent news has indicated that Oprah Winfrey might be considering running for President in 2020. In a conversation with David Rubenstein, she smiled when asked if she would “break the glass ceiling” by getting elected for President. The show was actually taped back in December, but aired this morning, which explains the press it has received. Following Oprah’s remarks, people have speculated as to whether or not prior government experience is needed to campaign for office, given the victory of President Donald Trump. The political world is not a foreign arena to Oprah: In 2008, she campaigned for Barack Obama;...

    But … maybe something has happened behind the scenes? Democrats have been whispering about Oprah’s potential as a candidate for awhile. A week after the election, a frustrated Michael Moore said this: “Democrats would be better off if they ran Oprah or Tom Hanks … why don’t we run beloved people?” Moore told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” “We have so many of them,” he said. “The Republicans do this — they run Reagan and the Terminator and other people.” It was a reference to former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well as former President Ronald Reagan....

    The Wrap ^ | January 15, 2017 | Sharon Waxman
    Less than a week before the inauguration, political commentator Van Jones predicted “a horrendous abuse of power” once Donald Trump takes office as president of the United states. The CNN commentator spoke on Sunday night at the home of Netflix chief Ted Sarandos about the documentary “13th,” on a panel with filmmaker Ava DuVernay and media mogul Oprah Winfrey. The film explores the abuses and racial inequities of the prison system, with the title referring to the 13th amendment abolishing slavery. Asked by Winfrey what he expected of the new administration, Jones said, “I think mostly bad things. Both parties...

    Michelle Obama is looking forward to getting her “anonymity” back. The first lady complained in an interview that aired Monday night with Oprah Winfrey on CBS that her biggest sacrifice while Barack Obama served as president was giving up her ability to be anonymous. But soon, she believes, that’ll change. “You know, there’s nowhere I can go in the world and just sit at a table and have a cup of coffee and watch the world,” Obama said in what is expected to be her final sit-down interview. Oprah doubted Obama will get her anonymity back — but the outgoing...

    Mediaite ^ | December 17, 2016 | Justin Baragona
    During an interview with Oprah Winfrey, First Lady Michelle Obama pretty much compared the relationship between her husband and the rest of the country to that of a parent and an injured child. Noting that we’re now feeling what not having hope feels like, Mrs. Obama explained how “hope” was more than a slogan for Barack Obama. “Our children respond to crises the way they see us respond,” Mrs. Obama said. “You know, it’s like the toddler that bumps his head on the table and they look up at you to figure out if it hurts.” She went on to...

    It my have taken eight long years, but the days of high-handed, high-spending activists squatting on the White House are over. The business of ‘Making America Great Again’ is already in full swing Monumentally mouthy Michelle Obama should ditch the pious act in claiming that the election of Donald J. Trump leaves America in a sorry state of “hopelessness”. Like some of her tacky outfits it doesn’t look good on her. Here she is in the closing act of her last holiday on American taxpayers taking advantage of an Oprah she once tried to drive out the White House to...

    Here it is, the Sunday before Christmas already. How does this happen? Every. Year. And I haven’t even wrapped up last week’s news yet so let’s get started.First off, Barry gave the newsers an early Christmas gift by deigning to hold a rare end-of-year press conference in which he delusionally declared his presidency an unmitigated success. In fact he gave himself a very solid A+. That’s up from the solid B+ he gave himself at the end of his first year when he was interviewed by Oprah (December, 2009): In her Christmas in Washington special on ABC last night, Oprah...

    Michelle Obama says the White House needs a “grown-up” and the nation will come to appreciate President Barack Obama. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey set to air Monday night on CBS, the first lady says the election has reinforced her view that her husband’s administration was able to inspire hope “because we feel the difference now.” “Now we’re feeling what not having hope feels like,” she says. “You know? Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept. And Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was just a nice slogan to get votes. I mean, he and...

    Cops grilled the son of Oprah Winfrey’s celebrity jeweler Wednesday after digging up the body of a slain Connecticut man last seen alive at the suspect’s Manhattan home. The bloody corpse of Joseph Comunale, 26, was driven from the East Side to a desolate stretch of the Jersey Shore — and buried in a shallow grave behind a flower shop, the sources told the Daily News. While no arrests have been made, sources said cops were looking at James Rackover — the son of jeweler to the stars Jeffrey Rackover, whose A-list clients include Winfrey, Jennifer Lopez and Denzel Washington.

    As Oprah Winfrey reflected Thursday on this week’s election, she said she was initially in disbelief after learning Donald Trump was elected president of the United States. But the media mogul, who was vocal in her support for Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton, found some comfort in watching President Barack Obama and President-elect Trump meet with each other at the White House on Thursday. In an interview with the Associated Press on Thursday, Winfrey said “hope is still alive” after Obama said he was encouraged by Trump’s willingness to work with his team during the transition of power. The meeting between...
