    Celebrities have opinions they like to share. Sometimes, what they have to say comes and goes without a blink, and other times it dominates a news cycle. In most cases, their thoughts are insignificant and don’t matter. President Trump is attacked on a regular basis by alleged comedians on late night talk shows. Jimmy Kimmel is one of Trump’s most prominent attackers. But has Kimmel become bored with his verbal assaults? Recently, Deadline interviewed Kimmel. He was asked if there was a “barrel full of barbs” for Trump in his upcoming ABC standup routine show. He surprisingly said he only...

    Jerry Seinfeld isn’t interested in Donald Trump jokes. The comedian behind the legendary Seinfeld sitcom sat down with David Letterman for an upcoming episode of the Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. Perhaps hopefully, Letterman wondered, “Do you do Trump stuff when you go out?” Seinfeld shut down this topic by humorously changing the subject: “No, it doesn’t interest me. I do a lot of raisin stuff.” He joked: I just think that it’s interesting that after 80 years, Sun-Maid finally went, 'Hey, why don’t we put some chocolate on it?' Imagine not thinking of that for 80...

    The saying goes, "Never say never," and despite saying never in the past, it seems Jerry Seinfeld may be changing his tune about a Seinfeld reboot/revival. When Seinfeld stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss Comedians in Cards Getting Coffee, which will feature Ellen DeGeneres, the talk show host asked Seinfeld about the recent uptake in sitcom revivals. "All these sitcoms are having a resurgence," DeGeneres says. "Roseanne is doing it, I heard Murphy Brown—is that really true, Murphy Brown is doing it?" "Murphy Brown? And Candice Bergen is coming back?" Seinfeld asks. "I think I know where you're...

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that . . . Let’s take a break from the MSM’s non-stop Rob Porter coverage and note an amusing CNN moment. Chris Cuomo was interviewing GOP Rep. Jim Jordan this morning. Jordan began by wishing Cuomo a Happy Valentine’s Day. There was a problem with Cuomo’s earpiece, and as they were checking it, Jordan repeated the greeting twice more. When they finally got the problem straightened out, Jordan said: “Chris, first time I’ve ever told a guy Happy Valentine’s three times in one day.” Get the rest of the story and view the video...

    Fat people have less than thin people. Older people have less than younger people. Men have less than younger women. It is brown fat, actually brown in color, and its great appeal is that it burns calories like a furnace... --snip-- The brown fat also kept its subjects warm. The more brown fat a man had, the colder he could get before he started to shiver. Brown fat, Dr. Carpentier and Jan Nedergaard, Dr. Cannon’s husband, wrote in an accompanying editorial, “is on fire.” On average, Dr. Carpentier said, the brown fat burned about 250 calories over three hours. But...

Her illness is not related to the decision to make the upcoming seventh season of Veep its last, which was made weeks earlier. Veep‘s writing team will...

    The New York soup company which inspired the Soup Nazi character on the hit comedy Seinfeld has filed for bankruptcy. Soupman Inc is based in Staten Island and sells soups made from the recipes of Al Yeganeh, who opened his store in Manhattan in 1984. He and his New York soup stand were the inspiration for the Seinfeld character, played by actor Larry Thomas, who would make his would-be customers follow strict rules to order or otherwise refuse to serve them, barking his repeated catchphrase: 'No soup for you!'

    No tax for you! The chief financial officer for the Staten Island-based Soupman Inc. — made famous by the iconic “Soup Nazi” episode of “Seinfeld” — was busted Tuesday for not paying half a million dollars in taxes over the course of four years, authorities announced. Robert Bertrand, 62, allegedly avoided paying Medicare, Social Security and federal income taxes to the tune of more than $593,000 by not reporting cash earnings or the fact that Soupman employees were compensated on the side with stock awards, the US Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn said. The saucy scheme lasted from 2010 to 2014...

Rich Haydon, superintendent at San Onofre State Beach, said Tuesday that officials are deciding whether to attempt towing the carcass by boat out to sea or chop it up and load the pieces onto trucks for removal

    (CNN)The national spokesman for Ted Cruz's presidential campaign is calling the Donald Trump campaign "the Seinfeld candidacy," because as he puts it, "The whole campaign is about nothing." Rick Tyler told CNN's Erin Burnett that Trump says "nothing about immigration, nothing about job creation, nothing about what's going on in North Korea, nothing about ISIS. I mean this is amazing." Tyler said Cruz is running a campaign about conservative issues and that Trump fails to discuss the issues because he isn't a true conservative. Both Trump and Cruz are eying key primaries in southern states starting with South Carolina, which...

  • Barack Obama to appear on Jerry Seinfeld's 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee'

    The president can be heard — but not seen — supposedly answering a White House phone in a YouTube trailer posted Monday, but a Crackle press release photo appears to show Obama sharing a laugh with Seinfeld. Astute fans of Seinfeld's conversational series will note that, unlike previous "Coffee" installments that feature the host doubling as a chauffeur, the photo relating to the Obama episode shows both the host and guest as passengers in a vehicle emblazoned with a presidential seal. However, they took turns taking the wheel of a different vehicle at another point of their conversation. "The episode...

    How Seinfeld became a bad joke: The threat of a hyper-vigilant left-wing outrage machine has been greatly exaggerated Jerry Seinfeld is the latest brave middle-aged white man to weigh in on the “creepy” ascendance of humorless p.c. SJW anti-free-speech scolds. We know the drill now–we’ve heard it from comedians like Seinfeld and Patton Oswalt and, to a lesser degree, Louis C.K. and Chris Rock. We’ve heard it packaged in a different format from Very Serious media commentators like Jonathan Chait, Laura Kipnis and, most recently, an anonymous white male adjunct professor whose left-wing students “terrify” him. It’s a familiar, tired...

    The culture of political correctness has gotten so bad at college campuses that even bleeding heart liberal comics like Jerry Seinfeld feel out of place. The venerable comedian told ESPN’s Colin Cowherd last week that he avoids performing on college campuses, and has been advised by those who have to stay away. From Entertainment Tonight: Seinfeld says teens and college-aged kids don’t understand what it means to throw around certain politically-correct terms. “They just want to use these words: ‘That’s racist;’ ‘That’s sexist;’ ‘That’s prejudice,’” he said. “They don’t know what the hell they’re talking about.” Tuesday, the Huffington Post published...

    Like Chris Rock and Larry the Cable Guy, Jerry Seinfeld avoids doing shows on college campuses. And while talking with ESPN’s Colin Cowherd on Thursday, the comedian revealed why: College kids today are too politically correct. “I hear that all the time,” Seinfeld said on The Herd with Colin Cowherd. “I don’t play colleges, but I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges. They’re so PC.’” Seinfeld says teens and college-aged kids don’t understand what it means to throw around certain politically-correct terms. “They just want to use these words: ‘That’s racist;’ ‘That’s sexist;’ ‘That’s prejudice,’”...
