The footage, unearthed by The Cut, shows Matthews preparing to interview Clinton during the presidential campaign in late 2016. “Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” he innocently jokes, before diving in. “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?” The footage ends with Matthews looking pleased with the witticism he unleashed on his staff.

‘Don’t Talk Over Me!’ Gloria Allred Doesn’t Realize Don Lemon Is Trying To Help Her Out

All week long, CNN anchor has seemingly had at least one segment every night go off the rails, leading to him either fighting with a guest, shouting at the White House, or lecturing his panel to behave lest he stop the discussion right then and there. Well, on Thursday night, we got another askew segment. And, once again, it featured Lemon battling with a guest as the conversation careened off course. However, in this instance, the anchor was merely trying to assist his panelist as she made her point. And she just wasn’t catching on. Famed attorney Gloria Allred showed up to talk about the Bill Cosby mistrial. After a back-and-forth with CNN legal analyst Mark Geragos over the jury pool and potential re-trial, Allred began talking about the judge’s instructions to the jury about publicly discussing deliberations. As she went on, Lemon attempted to interject so he Continue reading "‘Don’t Talk Over Me!’ Gloria Allred Doesn’t Realize Don Lemon Is Trying To Help Her Out"

‘Every American Would Have to Share One Pharmacist — Bill Cosby!’ Trevor Noah Lampoons Trumpcare

On Tuesday night, Trevor Noah gave Democrats some pointers on how to scare people into rejecting the GOP’s health care bill that’s currently in the works. He started off by telling Sen. Jeff Merkeley (D-OR) not to call Trumpcare the “vampire bill” because now vampires are “sparkly and cool” and that people “don’t want to run from them; they want to f–k them.” The Daily Show host suggested that Democrats only need a “flashlight” and some “alternative facts” to sway public opinion on Trumpcare. “You’ve got a horror story on your hands,” he added. Noah then demonstrated what Democrats should do on the floor by telling “the tale of Trumpcare” which would “make it mandatory for everyone to wear a catheter.” “And scariest of all, under Trumpcare, every American would have to share one pharmacist; Bill Cosby!” He concluded his horror story by saying, “This might just Continue reading "‘Every American Would Have to Share One Pharmacist — Bill Cosby!’ Trevor Noah Lampoons Trumpcare"
