    Well this is news to millions of fans of the beloved PBS franchise. Then again, maybe not. The topic of Bert and Ernie’s homosexuality has been a subtle joke over the years. Saltzman recalled a comical story from the San Francisco Chronicle awhile back that mentioned how one progressive child picked up on the not-so-subtle clues. He stated, “a preschooler in the city turned to mom and asked, ‘Are Bert and Ernie lovers?’ “That coming from a preschooler was fun, and that got passed around,” he mentioned

    Tom Arnold is on a gonzo mission to save the world from Donald Trump. On Sunday night, this two-year odyssey took a violent turn when Arnold got into a scrap with Mark Burnett, the TV mogul and longtime friend of the U.S. president. As Arnold tweeted just after midnight: “Mark Burnett just went apes--t & choked me at this huge Emmy party then he ran away with his torn Pink shirt & missing gold chain. I’m waiting for LAPD.” According to Variety, the scuffle happened as both men entered the Evening Before Emmy party. Although details remain fuzzy, Arnold’s lawyer,...

    Paul Feig, director of 2016’s female-led Ghostbusters reboot, says the movie was caught in the same misogynistic “vortex” as then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. “I have been dying for somebody to look at Hillary Clinton’s campaign and us, because we were caught in the exact same vortex,” Feig told The Telegraph when speaking about new Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively mystery-thriller A Simple Favor. “It was shocking. I still think about it a lot, honestly — sometimes I’m like, ‘OK, stop thinking about it.’ Because I’m really proud of the movie, and while people still send me mean things, overwhelmingly more...

    Kirstie Alley has said she would have been “cordial unless provoked otherwise” if Stormy Daniels had entered the Celebrity Big Brother house. The adult film star, who shot to fame after claiming she had an affair with Donald Trump, was due to appear on the reality show but pulled out at the last minute. The Cheers actress, who has been vocal in her support of the US president, said it was for the best that Daniels did not end up on the show. She said: “I would have figured out how to deal with it, I was glad she didn’t...

    "Black-ish" creator Kenya Barris is the latest public figure refusing to be owned by our current political climate. Like Colin Kaepernick, he will not sacrifice his voice to conform to a system that caters to President Donald Trump and his supposedly profitable fan base. Barris recently told The Hollywood Reporter he is departing ABC, a network the magazine describes as led by executives "forthright about their desire for more red-state programming since Trump's win," for Netflix. Barris revealed that his last straw with ABC was the network's shelving -- and as the magazine adds, all but erasing from existence, with...

    BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — Outspoken ESPN personality Jemele Hill announced Friday that she is leaving the company after 12 years as a commentator, anchor, reporter and writer. Hill attracted attention last year and was briefly suspended for opinionated messages on social media, including a tweet that referenced President Donald Trump as a "white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists." She also targeted Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones after he stated that players who disrespect the flag would not play for his team. Her suspension came after she tweeted that fans who disagree with Jones should target...

    CNN’s John Avlon agrees with The Washington Post that Trump is “complicit” in the storm. •Why? Because he’s not a global warming alarmist and opposes Obama-era climate policies. •One climate scientist touted the “irony” of a storm coming while Trump is deregulating. President Donald Trump’s critics are not only trying to implicate him in the potentially catastrophic damage of Hurricane Florence, but some seem to be touting the “irony” of a storm coming amid the administration’s deregulatory efforts. CNN political analyst John Avlon agreed with The Washington Post’s editorial board that Trump was “complicit” in the hurricane headed for the...

    Comedian even suggests altering Michelle Obama's advice — 'When they go low, we should go lower' ABC’s “The View” co-host and comedian Joy Behar belittled first lady Melania Trump on CNN’s “Van Jones Show,” saying on Saturday that before she met now-husband president Donald Trump, she was “in Slovenia doing nothing.” Host Van Jones, greeting Behar with kisses on the cheek and clearly thrilled to have her, called Behar “amazing” and an “icon.” Behar told Jones that when she worked at HLN, Melania Trump had come on her show “to hawk her jewelry.” She referred to that show as “famous”...
  • Trump will win by landslide in 2020. Liberals are the ones saying this, & that explains everything.

    09/10/2018 4:03:31 AM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 30 replies
    The bombshell admission came last week on MSNBC. New York uber-liberal Donny Deutsch said, “Trump will be re-elected in 2020 by a landslide.” That—while amazing—is not the bomb. It’s what he said next: “That’s why Trump must be removed from office now.” As Wayne Allyn Root put it: “Donny revealed what liberals are all thinking, deep down. Trump is a lock for re-election by a wide margin. As Deutsch admitted, that’s why he must be stopped now. Crazed liberals scream for his removal … impeachment … even assassination. Because they know Trump is succeeding. He is effective, he is erasing...

    Media bias seems to get worse by the week. Even a work week shortened by Labor Day delivered on that depressing trend. Journalists cheered protests at the Supreme Court nomination hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh and swallowed a silly Internet hoax. Then there was the anonymous New York Times op-ed defending a “steady state” rebellion against President Trump. It was a new low for journalists devoted to overturning a democratic election. Call it the pièce de résistance. The New York Times trumped opposition leaders at CNN and The Washington Post. The three battle daily for liberal attention and journalistic kudos...
  • Flowerboys and the appeal of 'soft masculinity' in South Korea

    A man wearing make-up on the street may elicit unwelcome glares, questions about his masculinity and even his sexuality. But in South Korea, ideas about how to look good as a man are changing attitudes and influencing the world, as the BBC's Saira Asher reports. When the BBC posted a video about the make-up routine of a 16-year-old YouTuber in Seoul on Facebook, the reactions ranged from intrigued to downright vitriolic. Some assumed this meant he was gay, while others admonished him for his choice saying "real men don't wear make-up". There were, of course, those that argued for his...

    Aide Stephanie Grisham calls the hosts “disrespectful” after they accuse the first lady of hypocrisy for her “birther” support. Melania Trump’s spokeswoman lashed out Friday at ABC’s “The View” after the panelists mocked the first lady’s statement condemning the anonymous op-ed in The New York Times written by a senior White House official. Host Sunny Hostin focused on the first lady’s line that “words are important” and “accusations can lead to severe consequences” in the statement she released Thursday criticizing the op-ed that claimed people around President Donald Trump have been attempting to contain his “bad decisions.” Melania Trump called...

    It a complete disgrace that an American movie refuses to recognize such an American triumph, but, instead, has sacrificed it on the altar of political correctness and globalism On October 12, a new movie, First Man, will debut in theaters across the United States. Already it is highly anticipated, and some critics believe it will be a contender for a variety of Oscar nominations. It received very positive reviews from attendees at the Venice Film Festival. Unfortunately, the much-ballyhooed movie is not historically accurate.
