Trevor Noah: ‘Fox News Is The Real President’




You probably knew that Fox News has a big influence over Donald Trump, but Trevor Noah says evidence suggests the conservative news network is actually the real president.


Noah explained his theory Monday night on “The Daily Show.”
“The reason Fox News is currently the president is because since Trump took office, Fox has been the source of much of the crazy shit he’s said,” Noah said. “If Trump’s lies are the virus, Fox News is the sex monkey that started it all.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

All Your Favorite Accidental Penis News Bloopers In 1 Glorious Video




Journalists on live TV can’t get too cocky. Events can alway conspire to humble you ― such as the drawing of an accidental penis.


Believe it or not, TV news is full of accidental penises, especially during weather reports.

Aitchison was asked to draw a cannon.
It didn’t go so well.

Trevor Noah Sums Up Trump’s Press Conference: ‘What A Putz!’




Like many people, Trevor Noah is still shocked by President Donald Trump’s wacked-out press conference on Thursday.


Not so much for the words that came out of the president’s mouth as for the message implied by his responses.
“You have a president of a democracy who thinks press is only valid when they ask him easy questions,” Noah said Thursday on “The Daily Show.” “Questions that he likes. In fact, in his mind, he deserves it.”
Noah then summed up what millions of people are thinking right now: “What a putz!” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms. It may be used for personal consumption, but may not be distributed on a website.

Marijuana Sasquatch Crashes Meteorologist’s Live Report






A pot shop owner in Springfield, Massachusetts, is getting a big hit of viral buzz after dressing up as a marijuana Sasquatch and crashing a live TV weather report.
Dave Mech runs Potco, a gardening supply store catering to cannabis cultivators. One of his promotional tools is a costumed character named “Potsquatch,” a bud-loving Bigfoot-type creature with marijuana leaves all over him.
When Mech saw WWLP meteorologist Jennifer Pagliei setting up for a live weather report on Thursday, he decided to smoke up some publicity by walking in the background.
“I was in my store waiting for some people from New York and I saw them setting up,” Mech told The Huffington Post. “I saw the bushes behind them and it was just too perfect.”
That’s a matter of opinion Continue reading "Marijuana Sasquatch Crashes Meteorologist’s Live Report"

Drudge Report Uses Jar Jar Binks Photo To Stoke Iranian Missile Fears

Hasn’t Jar Jar Binks suffered enough?
News aggregator Matt Drudge apparently doesn’t think so.
The Drudge Report posted a link Thursday to a Reuters article headlined “Khamenei ally says useless for U.S. to threaten Iran over missile test: Fars.”
The article has Iranian officials vowing not to yield to threats from “an inexperienced person” like President Donald Trump.
To attract attention to the article, Drudge ran the head “Iran Rattles” and included this photo showing ground-launched missiles.

If you look closely at the bottom center left, you can see the image of Jar Jar Binks, the much maligned sidekick in the much maligned “Star Wars: Episode I ― The Phantom Menace.”
Spoiler alert: Jar Jar hasn’t left the Rebel Alliance to join Iranian forces.
His image was inexplicably superimposed on the picture of missiles by the Iranian-based Mehr News Agency (MNA).
The photo dates to 2008, according Continue reading "Drudge Report Uses Jar Jar Binks Photo To Stoke Iranian Missile Fears"

New York Post Sportswriter Claims He Was Fired For Anti-Trump Tweet


A sportswriter for the New York Post claims that he was fired on Friday because of an anti-Trump tweet.
Bart Hubbuch, a columnist and NFL reporter for the paper, posted a new tweet on Monday with his explanation for his sudden termination:

Last Friday, I was fired by the New York Post for tweeting on my own time seven days earlier my personal belief that Donald Trump becoming President of the United States is a national tragedy.






The tweet that led to his dismissal appeared on the day of Trump’s inauguration. It compared that event with two of the worst days in American history: the attacks on Pearl Harbor and the World Trade Center.
Hubbuch has since deleted the tweet, but a screengrab appears below:

Hubbuch later sent out an apology tweet, also since deleted, calling the Continue reading "New York Post Sportswriter Claims He Was Fired For Anti-Trump Tweet"

Donald Trump’s News Conference Is No Joke To Trevor Noah




Trevor Noah’s job is to be a comedian, but he is deadly serious that Donald Trump’s first conference as president-elect sets an ominous tone for the next four years.
During Wednesday’s news conference, Trump refused to take a question from CNN reporter Jim Acosta, calling the network “fake news.”
On Wednesday’s “The Daily Show,” Noah said this is nothing to joke about.
“In America, the press is supposed to be the check on the president, not the other way around,” Noah said. “This is essentially the first step in the ‘Authoritarian Tango.’”
Noah said that if Trump can shut down CNN by calling it fake news, he can do the same to every other news organization.
“Until all it is is, ‘Breaking news! Has President Trump been working out?’” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to Continue reading "Donald Trump’s News Conference Is No Joke To Trevor Noah"
