Jesse Watters on Trump’s Birtherism: He Was ‘Just Having a Little Fun’ at Obama’s Expense

Hey, did you know that President Donald Trump’s multi-year embrace of birtherism — including his insistence that he had investigators working on the case — was all just a good-natured rib? Well, that’s what Fox News’ Jesse Watters would like you to believe. During last night’s broadcast of Watters’ World, the Fox News personality brought on veteran rocker Todd Rundgren to discuss Rundgren telling Trump supporters not to come to his shows because they “won’t have a good time.” Towards the end of the segment, Rundgren was pressed about his recent song ‘Tin Foil Hat’ and why Trump was wearing a tin foil hat in the video. “Well, he was the original conspiracy theorist, wasn’t he?” Rundgren asked Watters. “He didn’t believe that [Barack] Obama was born in this country and he fomented that pretty much from the time Continue reading "Jesse Watters on Trump’s Birtherism: He Was ‘Just Having a Little Fun’ at Obama’s Expense"

‘I’m Now the 44th-Best President!’: Trump Meets Ghost of Nixon in New Simpsons Short

The Simpsons released a new short Friday in which they lampooned President Donald Trump to commemorate the 125 day mark of his administration. In the sketch, Trump is seen laying on a bed in the White House with assorted books nearby such as; Two Scoops for Me, How to Lose Friends and Piss Off Israel, and I’m Still Fired by Bill O’Reilly. The premise of the sketch is that the President is trying to make nice with former FBI Director James Comey. “Let’s make a deal,” Trump says. “You hand over all your notes, and I’ll erase the tapes.” But he quickly backpedals. “I mean, there are no tapes! NO TAPES!” Then, the ghost of Richard Nixon appears. “I just have one piece of advice,” Nixon says. “If you have tapes, burn ’em.” The ghost adds, “Thanks to you, I’m now the 44th-best president!” Continue reading "‘I’m Now the 44th-Best President!’: Trump Meets Ghost of Nixon in New Simpsons Short"

Movie Theater Adds More Women-Only Wonder Woman Sparking Twitter Outrage

A Brooklyn movie theater caused a stir online yesterday when they announced they were going to be doing special Wonder Woman screenings just for women and female-identifying folks. Is the news that femme fans of super hero comics and movies have waited a long time for this shocking? No. Is it surprising that they might want to experience it together in a group with other women who’ve waited a long time? No. Is it that strange that a theater is trying to help women and girls feel more included in a subculture that is so notoriously exclusionary we have a sister site dedicated to doing the same thing? No. Is the theater banning men from every showing?

Rush Limbaugh Swoons Over ‘Manly, Studly’ Gianforte

rushlimbaugh-650x489 In the wake of the still mind-boggling turn of events involving Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs and Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte, American media and political figures registered almost universal disdain for the GOPer’s conduct. Not one to be silent when a “liberal journalist” catches a beating, Rush Limbaughjoined in to condemn the assault in an uncharacteristic display of journalistic solidarity. Except not really. Speaking about the Bodyslam in Bozeman, Limbaugh said:
“I must join the chorus of people condemning what happened out there. This manly, obviously studly Republican candidate in Montana took the occasion to beat up a pajama-clad journalist, a Pajama Boy journalist out there…And the manly, studly Republican simply didn’t realize that on the big stage you can’t do this kind of stuff and kicked the guy’s ass to the ground. This cannot be accepted. This must be condemned.”
The alleged sex tourist repeated Continue reading "Rush Limbaugh Swoons Over ‘Manly, Studly’ Gianforte"

Watch Comedy Central’s Moshe Kasher Hilariously Troll Noted Troll Mike Cernovich

Mike Cernovich, alt-right wunderkind, ingénue and juicing aficionado, recently appeared on Comedy Central’s Problematic with Moshe Kasher to brag about trolling the show’s host, define what the terms “cuck” and “beta” mean, and explain why he generally doesn’t grant interview requests. Cernovich said:
“I usually say no–I’ve turned down The Daily Show–I’ve turned down everybody…I always say ‘no’ to T.V. because all you people want to do is edit things out of context.”
Kasher then assured Cernovich that Problematic definitely wasn’t that kind of television program. What happened next was just short of beautiful. With Comedy Central’s unmatchable approach to subtle humor that still manages to catch the English-speaking world off-guard day in and day out, the show’s producer’s proceeded to edit Mike Cernovich out of context. When the noted pizza fan was asked about the most “cuck thing” he had ever done, Cernovich said:
“I Continue reading "Watch Comedy Central’s Moshe Kasher Hilariously Troll Noted Troll Mike Cernovich"

Greg Gianforte Blames ‘Liberal Journalist’ Reporter He Body-Slammed For ‘Aggressive Behavior’

The hotly contested Montana congressional race heated up last night, when GOP candidate Greg Gianforte body-slammed Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs and broke his glasses on the eve of the election. The incident — first reported by Jacobs on Twitter — happened the night before Montana’s election, and was disputed by Gianforte’s campaign, in a statement on the incident, claiming Jacobs “aggressively shoved a recorder in Greg’s face and began asking badgering questions.” After asking Jacobs to leave, the statement claims that “liberal journalist” Jacobs grabbed Greg’s wrist, forcing both to the ground. But the “aggressive behavior” described in Gianforte’s statement is contradicted by Jacobs, audio recording of the incident, and multiple witness accounts. In a recording released by the Guardian, Gianforte is not heard asking Jacobs to leave, nor is Jacobs heard acting aggressively. Gianforte asks Continue reading "Greg Gianforte Blames ‘Liberal Journalist’ Reporter He Body-Slammed For ‘Aggressive Behavior’"
