    President Trump lashed out at Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe,’ for using a homophobic slur to describe Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Brzezinski, in a discussion about Pompeo’s recent interview with ‘Fox & Friends,’said on Wednesday: “I understand that Donald Trump doesn’t care…But why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now? Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard when he appeared on Fox and Friends, is that a patriot speaking, or a wannabe dictator’s buttboy?” Trump reacted via Twitter on Thursday: “If it was a Conservative that said what ‘crazed’ Mika Brzezinski stated on her show yesterday, using...

  • Tim Allen: Liberals have little sense of humor about themselves, 'so I love poking at it'

    Tim Allen thinks nothing is more effective at pissing people off than a "very funny conservative." "I like pissing people off, and I said there’s nothing, especially in this area, that pisses people off more than a very funny conservative, a smart, funny conservative that takes shots and is certainly self-effacing," Allen said in an interview with IndieWire about his show "Last Man Standing," in which he plays a conservative-leaning character. "The left-wing point of view is so pervasive that they don’t even realize it’s a point of view. It is just a point of view," he said. "I think...

    The administration is drawing up rules for White House reporters' behavior, and the president said if journalists don't follow them, 'we'll end up back in court, and we'll win.' CNN and Jim Acosta may have won their battle with the White House in court on Friday, but President Donald Trump has found a new weapon in his long war against the media. After a judge ruled that the White House violated the CNN correspondent’s right to due process by stripping him of his press badge, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declared that the administration was drawing up new rules to...

    President Trump on Wednesday expressed hope the White House would defeat CNN in a lawsuit over his decision to suspend the press credentials of reporter Jim Acosta, whom he called “bad for the country.” In an interview with The Daily Caller, Trump railed against Acosta, calling him a “rude” person whose “grandstanding” is unfair to the broader White House press corps. “I really think that when you have guys like Acosta, I think they’re bad for the country,” Trump told the conservative website. “He’s just an average guy who’s a grandstander who’s got the guts to stand up and shout.”...

    Lawyers suing President Donald Trump over his decision to end special protections shielding certain immigrants from deportation are seeking unaired footage from his reality TV show “The Apprentice” to try to bolster their case alleging the move was racially motivated, the attorneys said Wednesday. Lawyers for Civil Rights, which sued Trump in February , has issued subpoenas to MGM Holdings Inc. and Trump Productions LLC demanding any footage shot during the production of the show in which Trump “uses racial and/or ethnic slurs” or “makes remarks concerning race, nationality and/or ethnic background.” Former White House staffer and fellow reality-TV star...

    Just over an hour after CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta had his White House credentials suspended in light of his latest act of showboating, AC360 gave him a hero’s welcome while CNN argued in a statement that “this unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy” while Acosta asserted that “they’re trying to — to shut us down.” Host Anderson Cooper welcomed Acosta on as the two sat inside CNN’s D.C. bureau and so Acosta first gave his account of when he tried to return to the White House grounds for a live shot slated for this same...

Every cell of their being explodes with celestial energy, transforming their entire being. It’s probably for the best though, considering that if every Time Lord kept a bit of their past self, they’d look like the nightmare above.

    Sixteen-year-old Treasure is African-American and says she aligns herself with a group of people who are “perfect” just like her: Caucasians. “I’m white. I’m a Caucasian because everything about me is different from an African-American,” the teen says, explaining that she has naturally straight hair that doesn’t require a weave, that her nose is small, and that her lips are the perfect size. “When it comes to black people, I think they’re all ugly, and I have nothing in common with them.” Treasure continues, explaining why she believes she is white – and better than black people. “I believe that...

    MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace said that she had previously told then-presidential candidate Jeb Bush that “he should have punched” President Donald Trump “in the face” after one of the primary debates in 2016. During an episode of Wallace’s show “Deadline: White House” on MSNBC on Thursday, she was discussing Bush’s feud with Trump. Bush and Trump used to have heated debates in 2015 and 2016 before the former governor of Florida dropped out of the race. Former Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele was discussing one instance when Bush called out Trump during a Republican debate. "Let me tell you,...

    ‘The Conners’ minus fired Roseanne Barr is one risky prospect. We’ve got details on how ABC execs are afraid the show will fail without its longtime lead character. Thanks to what Roseanne Barr calls a “misunderstood tweet” in May, she quickly was fired by ABC and the wildly successful revival of her 1990s sitcom was cancelled. The network thought her tweet about Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrettwas racist and within hours Roseanne was out of a job. Now the show is going on without her and the rest of the cast is coming back for The Conners. ABC execs are...

Stephanie Grisham tweeted Friday: “Day 2 of attacks from @TheView. @YNB check your facts before you accuse someone of being a mistress.

    Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski envision possibly four more years of Trump in 2020 — just not Donald Trump. “Ivanka Trump Is going to run for president,” Brzezinski declared during an on-stage conversation with editor David Remnick on opening night of the New Yorker Festival. Remnick did a double-take, asking them to explain the theory. “He’s got this obsession with positioning her,” Brzezinski said. “You can pull up her Instagram and she’s got these carefully composed sizzle reels, ,,, She’s going to all of the companies–” Scarborough interjected, “Giving speeches in front of the presidential seal.” He...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh attracted more interest from television viewers during last week's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing than Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accuses him of sexual misconduct. The audience during the peak hour of Kavanaugh's testimony last week was 35 percent bigger than for Ford's on the three top broadcasters and three cable news networks. Ford's audience was 18.76 million in the 11 a.m. hour, while 25.34 million watched at 5 p.m., the Nielsen company said. Kavanaugh's audience was bigger on all of the networks, although the discrepancy was largest on Fox News...

    The mantra for the current NFL champions in Philadelphia may be “fly Eagles, fly,” but last night on Sunday Night Football it was Super Bowl XLVII winners the Baltimore Ravens who hit high notes in tearing the Pittsburgh Steelers apart. In a 26-14 win on SNF, the Ravens are now 3-1 this season and the Keystone State team is near the bottom of the AFC North. The game in Pittsburgh on Sunday also saw another type of bottoming out in the ratings for the league and the NFL, as the primetime Week 4 matchup drew a 12.3/21 in metered-market results...

    When Mike Fleiss, the creator of “The Bachelor” and “Who Wants to Marry a Multimillionaire?” helped pioneer reality television in the early 2000s, he quickly realized that for any show to work, the audience needed to feel invested. “Whenever you’re developing one of these shows, you have to find stakes — true love or a million dollars,” Mr. Fleiss said. These days, Mr. Fleiss does what American TV viewers are doing in record numbers — he sits glued to cable news, watching a panel of experts discuss the latest developments in the sprawling, intricate, unpredictable 24/7 show that is Donald...
