Clinton Accuser Juanita Broaddrick Hits Chelsea Handler Over Roy Moore Slam: ‘You Don’t Want to Go There’

As a wave of sexual misconduct scandals involving powerful men has rocked the media, political, and entertainment worlds, some allegations of the past are being revisited and viewed in a new light. Among them, the 1978 rape accusation levied by Juanita Broaddrick against former President Bill Clinton. (Notably, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes said that Democrats are overdue for “a real reckoning” on the charges against Clinton.) One notable progressive, though, is opting to focus on the present day scandal on the other side of the aisle. And Broaddrick is calling her out for it. In a Tweet on Sunday, comedian Chelsea Handler denounced Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate from Alabama, amid reports claiming he tried to initiate relationships with four teenage women while he was in his 30s.

Mike Pence Defends Power Of Prayer Against Democrats’ Attack

Vice President Mike Pence defended the power of prayer amidst an unprecedented public push-back against such outward declarations of faith after the mass shootings in Texas last week and in Las Vegas last month. Speaking with Shannon Bream on Fox News @ Night Tuesday night, the Indiana Republican said prayer “takes nothing away from our determination to get to the bottom of what happened, to understand the why, to determine whether or not there were errors along the way.” The “errors” Pence referred to were the recent revelations that apparent federal government incompetence caused existing laws and background checks to not effectively be administered and applied when the Texas church murderer, Devin Kelley, illegally purchased the firearm used in last week’s massacre. “I’m a believer. I believe in prayer and I know that at this moment of such heartbreak and loss Continue reading "Mike Pence Defends Power Of Prayer Against Democrats’ Attack"

Watch Tomi Lahren Get Booed for Slamming Obamacare While Admitting She Benefits From It

Tomi Lahren denounced Obamacare during her appearance at Politicon this weekend, but she also admitted that she benefits from one of the core components of the Affordable Care Act. Lahren squared off against Chelsea Handler, and the two discussed the latest failed effort by Congressional Republicans to reform health care. As the two debated limited government and alternatives to the current system, Lahren said she has health insurance though her parents because she’s only 24 years old. “Do you have a health care plan or no?” asked Handler. “Well luckily, I’m 24, so I am still on my parents’ [plan]” Lahren responded. Under Obamacare, Americans are allowed to stay on their parents’ plans until they turn 26. Lahren got quite a few boos after her admission, though Handler told the audience to stop because “she’s being honest.” Lahren said the Affordable Care Act has positive aspects like Continue reading "Watch Tomi Lahren Get Booed for Slamming Obamacare While Admitting She Benefits From It"

It’s ‘Just Criminal’: Jerrod Carmichael Upset Over NBC Pulling Mass Shooting Episode of His Show

Jerrod Carmichael expressed his frustrations over NBC’s decision to pull an episode of The Carmichael Show from the air in the wake of the GOP and the San Francisco shootings that occurred this week. If you aren’t familiar with The Carmichael Show, it’s a multi-camera family sitcom in the middle of its third season that often tackles taboo subjects in the spirit of All in the Family. The episode that was supposed to air Wednesday night, just hours after a political terrorist shot Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and four others, focused on the main character (played by Carmichael) surviving a mass shooting. Carmichael, who is also the executive producer of the show, sat down with Chelsea Handler on Wednesday and discussed how he felt about it all. “I thought that tonight’s episode would have an opportunity to talk about these tragedies in a meaningful way,” he said. Carmichael elaborated, Continue reading "It’s ‘Just Criminal’: Jerrod Carmichael Upset Over NBC Pulling Mass Shooting Episode of His Show"

Don Lemon Says Conway Deserved Anderson Cooper’s Eye Roll: ‘It Was What Everybody Was Thinking’

Last month, you may remember the kerfuffle that developed in the wake of CNN anchor Anderson Cooper’s infamous eye roll during an interview with White House counselor Kellyanne Conway. In the days following Cooper’s gesture, Conway claimed it exhibited “sexism” and anti-Trumpism while Fox News hosts mocked Cooper, saying it looked like he “sprained his face.” More than a month after the fact, Cooper’s colleague Don Lemon was asked about it during an appearance on Netflix’s Chelsea. After host Chelsea Handler played a still frame from the interview, Lemon defended his fellow anchor. “Don’t you think he sort of — it was what everybody was thinking?” Lemon said. Handler jumped in, stating she understood why he rolled his eyes but wondering aloud why Cooper didn’t do that “six months ago.” “You have to have a poker face,” Lemon noted. “Because you know — you know when people Continue reading "Don Lemon Says Conway Deserved Anderson Cooper’s Eye Roll: ‘It Was What Everybody Was Thinking’"

‘Tell That F*cking A**hole!’ Chelsea Handler Rips ‘Puppet’ Ivanka Trump for Lacking Influence With Her Dad

Ivanka Trump was unable to talk her father, President Donald Trump, out of withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord. Chelsea Handler thinks that isn’t just a one-time occurrence, but part of a larger pattern. Speaking with Sarah Silverman and Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, Handler blasted the first daughter for not calling her father out on his handling of women’s rights issues. “I’m like, You need to tell that f*cking a**hole ‘This is an unacceptable way to treat women. We’re moving backwards!'” Handler said. Silverman brought up a direct message she sent to Ivanka, in which she implored the first daughter to exert her influence. But Handler doesn’t seem to think Ivanka has any. “I always say this. Why isn’t she doing more?” Handler said. “And my friends are like, ‘She has no control. She’s just another puppet circling around him.'” Continue reading "‘Tell That F*cking A**hole!’ Chelsea Handler Rips ‘Puppet’ Ivanka Trump for Lacking Influence With Her Dad"
