On Friday night, Hillary Clinton appeared on The Late Show and weighed in on the ongoing confirmation battle of the Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Promoting the paperback edition of her book What Happened, the former Secretary of State began by criticizing Republicans for not allowing President Barack Obama‘s own SCOTUS nominee Judge Merrick Garland to go through the confirmation process, saying it sent “such a terrible message.” She also blasted the GOP of “holding back information” on Kavanaugh that has “always been made available” for other SCOTUS nominees because they’re trying to “rush this through.” She then pivoted to the allegation of sexual assault made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. “I’m hoping that at some point, there will be an agreement to have an investigation,” Clinton told Stephen Colbert. “It would be very easy for the FBI to go back and finish the background Continue reading "Hillary Clinton Calls For FBI Investigation Into Kavanaugh Allegation: It’s a ‘Fair Request’"
Before closing his show Friday night, Bill Maher presented the case why President Donald Trump has “narcissistic personality disorder” in the wake of the latest New York Times bombshell report. It was reported that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made an attempt to organize the cabinet to invoke the 25 Amendment against the president during the fallout of his firing of FBI Director James Comey. Rosenstein had also suggested to secretly record Trump in the process. Well, Maher offered his own analysis: “Now that the 25th Amendment, the one about removing a president who’s incapacitated, keeps popping up in the news, someone has to explain to me if it was written specifically for this guy, then who is it for?” Maher asked his audience. “I know that everyone knows by now that Trump is a narcissist, but we have to stop treating that like it’s an unfortunate personality tick Continue reading "Bill Maher Reacts to NYT Bombshell: The 25th Amendment Was Written For Trump!"
On Friday night, liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore criticized former President Barack Obama for actions he made during the 2016 election. Promoting his new film Fahrenheit 11/9, Moore began by pointing out how Hillary Clinton lost his home state of Michigan by “about two votes per precinct” and that she “never should have lost a blue state.” He added that the people of Flint felt they were “used as props” after it was learned that Clinton received debate questions in advance during the primaries and not Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Moore also noted that more people voted in the April primary in Michigan than did in the general election. He then “sadly” pivoted to President Obama, who he previously noted was the “greatest” president of his lifetime. “In the film, I show something that sadly President Obama did by coming to Flint and telling the people the water Continue reading "Michael Moore Rips Obama, Blames Him For Allowing Trump to Win Michigan in 2016"
Actress Tiffany Haddish appeared on The Late Show and dished about her personal life. Stephen Colbert asked Haddish if she had to “give anything up” in her life since she’s been busy making movies (she has three coming out in the next three months). She responded by saying she’s “kept up with most things” but she hasn’t been dating. “My relationships, my personal relationships haven’t been that good,” Haddish told Colbert. “But I have been keeping up with my weighted blanket and my toys I get off of Groupon.” The audience roared with laughter. “And batteries. Batteries are a girl’s best friend,” she added. “I like how the band lookin’ at me trying to figure out ‘What is she talking about?'” “I’ll add myself to that list,” Colbert joked. The Late Show host then asked the Night School star what a “weighted blanket” is. “A weighted blanket is a Continue reading "Tiffany Haddish Explains to Colbert How ‘Batteries are a Girl’s Best Friend’"
Several Hollywood actresses have come out in support of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford amid the confirmation battle of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Produced by the liberal group MoveOn, women from all walks of life came together and made a video in the format made famous during the 2016 election when several speakers read the same message. The one was a direct message for Dr. Ford. “Dear Professor Ford, we know how difficult it is to stand up to powerful people. We want to thank you for publicly sharing your story of sexual violence. As members of the Senate determine whether Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should serve as a Supreme Court Justice, this context is critical. The behavior you described was wrong and runs directly counter to upholding the law and promoting justice. He should not be confirmed,” the women said to the camera. “We can also imagine how Continue reading "Hollywood Shows Support For Christine Ford in New Video: ‘We Believe You’"
On Wednesday night, actress Jane Fonda was asked about her controversial activism during the Vietnam War. In opposition to the Vietnam War, Fonda visited the capital of Hanoi and during her 1972 visit, she was photographed standing on top of an anti-aircraft gun used to kill American soldiers, causing decades of outrage from her critics, nicknaming the actress “Hanoi Jane.” During her appearance on The Late Show, Stephen Colbert took a moment to address that moment in her life. “Have what we’ve learned about that war in the decades since changed your attitude toward that war or changed your attitude about what you did at the time?” Colbert asked. “No, I have- from the moment that I did the bad thing I did, which was I sat on an anti-aircraft gun in north Vietnam,” Ford responded. “I wasn’t even thinking what I was doing and photographs were Continue reading "Jane Fonda Addresses ‘Hanoi Jane’ Photo: ‘I Will Go To My Grave Regretting That’"
Chevy Chase, a controversial star comic and one of the founding cast members of Saturday Night Live, attacked the current iteration of the NBC comedy show, calling it the “worst fucking humor in the world.” “First of all, between you and me and a lamppost, jeez, I don’t want to put down Lorne or the cast, but I’ll just say, maybe off the record, I’m amazed that Lorne [Michaels] has gone so low,” Chase said in an interview with the Washington Post, which was not off the record. “I had to watch a little of it, and I just couldn’t f—— believe it.” “That means a whole generation of shitheads laughs at the worst f—— humor in the world,” he continued. “You know what I mean?” Chase, who was a member of the famed original Saturday Night Live cast in 1975, concluded his thoughts Continue reading "Chevy Chase Rips SNL: ‘Sh*theads’ Laughing at the ‘Worst F*cking Humor in the World’"
