Well… this was something no one expected. Ahead of his 50th birthday, Jimmy Kimmel documented his first colonoscopy. However, he told his audience that TV anchor Katie Couric had asked if she could join him, which he thought was an “unusual request.” “You’re about to watch a camera go where no camera has… ever gone before,” Kimmel warned viewers. The colonoscopy prep began last Thursday after his show’s taping and Couric prepped Kimmel a pre-colonscopy “cocktail” of sorts, which he chugged in a matter of seconds. “That was impressive!” Couric reacted. “How was it?” “Vile,” Kimmel responded. Couric picked up Kimmel at 5:30 the next morning and drove him to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. And while Kimmel was getting ready, Couric informed viewers that colon cancer is the second-leading cancer killer for men and women combined in the U.S. and that Kimmel was “pretty psyched.” Continue reading "Watch Jimmy Kimmel Get a Colonoscopy With Katie Couric (Yes, You Read Correctly)"
On Tuesday night, Fox News anchor Shannon Bream spoke with Stormy Daniels‘ lawyer, his first appearance on the network. Bream began by pressing Michael Avenatti on the allegation he made last week that his client was physically threatened, but he instead plugged the upcoming 60 Minutes interview in which he alleges viewers will “learn in detail” about those threats among other things surrounding her alleged affair with Donald Trump. She then invoked Avenatti’s past by pulling an excerpt from his website that read the following:
“While in college an later in law school, Michael worked at a political opposition research and media firm run by Rahm Emanuel (who later became White House Chief of Staff and is presently the Mayor of Chicago). During his time there, Michael worked on over 150 campaigns in 42 states, including multiple gubernatorial and congressional campaigns (i.e. Joe Biden‘s U.S. Senate Continue reading "Fox News’ Shannon Bream Presses Stormy Daniels Lawyer: ‘Is Any of This Political in Nature For You?’"
Laura Ingraham defended President Trump‘s congratulatory call to newly “re-elected” Russian President Vladimir Putin. “This is how easy it is for President Trump to make the swamp-dwellers lose their collective minds,” Ingraham began. “All he did was mention in passing that he congratulated Russian President Putin on his reelection… and they all went thermonuclear. Never mind that his main point was pressing Putin on Syria, North Korea, Ukraine, and the nuclear arms race. The mainstream media and their allies went into a full-fledged tizzy.” She then played numerous clips from CNN and MSNBC as well as invoked the sharp rebuke from Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who said that “an American president does not lead the free world by congratulating dictators on winning sham elections.” “Well wait a second, Sen. McCain. You mean like when President Obama congratulated the Islamic Brotherhood candidate on winning Egypt’s presidential election Continue reading "Laura Ingraham Blasts The ‘Swamp-Dwellers’ Who Went ‘Thermonuclear’ Over Trump’s Call to Putin"
During his monologue Tuesday night, Sean Hannity took a moment to investigate the top Russia investigator, Robert Mueller. “If we want law and order to rein in this country, if we want to be a constitutional republic, we’ve got to investigate the investigators,” Hannity began. “We’ve literally got to drain the swamp and sewer.” The Fox News host then posed the question, “Who is Robert Mueller?” “Everybody says, ‘He’s the greatest guy in the whole wide world. Just trust us!'” Hannity mocked Mueller’s defenders. “Well members of Congress, the mainstream media, they’ve been trying to convince you the special counsel – ‘he is beyond reproach.’ Sort of like climate change. ‘Oh, noobody disagrees with us. No scientist does.’ That’s not true either! ‘Mueller is the utmost man of integrity.’ Well, we’ve been doing some digging and we found some things you need to know about.

Geraldo Rivera reported live from Austin, Texas, Tuesday night just as another bomb exploded at a Goodwill earlier in the evening. Rivera spoke with two locals, one who lived near the Goodwill and works five minutes away from another bomb sighting. “We were at my daughter’s school at a cheer meeting tonight when they announced the bombing and let us leave,” one woman told Rivera. “It’s getting way too close to home and to work and to everyday life for everybody.” Her 15-year-old daughter said to Rivera that things have been “scary” between these bombings and the recent school shootings and that “you don’t even know if you’re walking to school.” When asked what she’d do if a FedEx truck arrives at their house, she responded by saying that she had packages that she ordered and that she wished she never ordered them. “They’ve told us to call Continue reading "Geraldo Rivera Sounds Off On Bombings While Reporting in Austin, TX: ‘This is Terrorism’"

Former City Council Speaker and CNN commentator Christine Quinn walked backed remarks she made towards actress/activist and now gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon. Quinn, who is openly gay, blasted the Sex in the City star for not endorsing her in 2013 in a mayoral race against Bill de Blasio and said the following to the New York Post:
“Cynthia Nixon was opposed to having a qualified lesbian become mayor of New York City. Now she wants to be an unqualified lesbian to be the governor of New York.
