Samantha Bee Recalls Interviewing Kellyanne Conway on The Daily Show: Even Back Then, She Was ‘Thirsty’

On Thursday night, Samantha Bee appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and was presented with an old clip of herself interviewing Kellyanne Conway on The Daily Show. The clip, which Bee guessed was from 2007-2008, showed her having a conversation with Conway about the “packaging” of the GOP. “It’s like the Republican Party is a s**t sandwich, how do you get Americans to eat the sandwich?” Bee asked. “Well, you dip it in chocolate and you say it has no calories,” Conway responded. Bee told Jimmy Kimmel that her interactions with Conway were “quite pleasant” and that she was “really lovely.” “She was on The Daily show many, many times in the years that I was there,” Bee said. “And it got to the point where people were like — producers were like, ‘Uh, should we call Kellyanne? She’ll say anything that we want her to.’ And they Continue reading "Samantha Bee Recalls Interviewing Kellyanne Conway on The Daily Show: Even Back Then, She Was ‘Thirsty’"

Kimmel on Cancelled North Korea Summit: Maybe Those Coins Will Be The ‘Currency of The Apocalypse’

On Thursday night, Jimmy Kimmel mocked President Trump for canceling the scheduled summit with North Korea. Kimmel began by weighing in on Trump’s televised announcement of his decision. And he only had one question: “Is he rubbing deodorants directly into his eye sockets now?” Kimmel asked. “What is going on?… Anyway, I digress.” He called Trump’s canceling of the summit the “nuclear nonproliferation equivalent of ‘You break up with me? I break up with you!'” Kimmel then dissected the letter Trump wrote to North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un, which he said wasn’t “Lincoln-esq.” He specifically read the part where he said to the dictator, “You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used” and later “I felt a wonderful dialogue was building up between you and me.

Seth Meyers Blasts Trump For Canceled North Korea Summit: ‘He Had No Idea What He Was Doing’

Seth Meyers mocked President Trump over his cancellation of the North Korea summit that was scheduled to take place next month. Meyers began by telling his audience that he was “so excited” about the peace talks between Trump and North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un that he bought one of those commemorative coins from the White House website because he “wanted to be a part of history.” After expressing good wishes for the president, “breaking news” interrupted saying that he had cancelled the June 12 summit. “Damn it!” Meyers exclaimed as he chucked the coin away. “Although, it’s my fault. I should have learned my lesson after I bought my commemorative coins for the Completed Border Wall, Biggest Inauguration Ever, Anthony Scaramucci‘s First 100 Days On The Job, Cleared of All Charges, and People‘s Sexiest Man Alive.” The Late Night host insisted that Trump “made Continue reading "Seth Meyers Blasts Trump For Canceled North Korea Summit: ‘He Had No Idea What He Was Doing’"

Cringeworthy Videos Released of Morgan Freeman Making Creepy Passes At Women: ‘Boy, Do I Wish I Was There’

A couple of videos released by HLN and Chicago’s WGN-TV have shed more light on the allegations against actor Morgan Freeman. HLN reports that Tyra Martin, an entertainment producer at WGN-TV in Chicago, sat down with Freeman over half a dozen times over the course of a decade to discuss his films, and thereby became accustomed to his mannerisms. He allegedly repeatedly made comments about her appearance and, in one video produced by WGN, he appeared to be flirting with her. But Martin told CNN that she was “in on the joke” until one incident where Freeman went too far. “When I stood up, I pulled my skirt part of my dress down and he did say, ‘Oh, don’t pull it down now.'” Martin said. “That gave me pause but I never felt uncomfortable.” Meanwhile, CNN entertainment reporter Chloe Melas felt very uncomfortable after an encounter she Continue reading "Cringeworthy Videos Released of Morgan Freeman Making Creepy Passes At Women: ‘Boy, Do I Wish I Was There’"
