Saturday Night Live kicked off their show tonight with John Goodman doing an impersonation of Rex Tillerson, who was clearly broken up about being fired as Secretary of State this week. Alex Moffat brought back his impression of CNN’s Anderson Cooper in order to ask Kate McKinnon‘s Jeff Sessions to explain the Department of Justice’s decision to fire Andrew McCabe last night. Sessions tried to sidestep the issue, but he did say at one point “Trump made me do it,” and Robert Mueller would be toast if he gets fired too. From there, Cooper turned to “Tillerson,” who was obviously not okay as he talked about all the details surrounding his humiliating dismissal. He continued to stew throughout the panel interview, though at one point, the former secretary more or less confirmed the old rumors by shouting “Trump is a moron!” Tonight’s guest host and returning SNL Continue reading "John Goodman Lampoons Rex Tillerson on SNL: ‘Trump is a Moron!’"

Two comedians are speaking out against Saturday Night Live for not hiring openly gay men as cast members. James Adomian, who is best known for his Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) impersonation during the 2016 election, auditioned for SNL 13 years ago and was openly gay at the time. And he told The Daily Beast that it’s “about time” the sketch comedy show hired gay men to be in front of the camera. “It would be nice if they put a gay man on camera on that show,” Adomian said. “I’ve been out of the closet the whole time since I auditioned 13 years ago. You would think that they would have tried to put someone else on that was a gay man. It’s about time.” As The Daily Beast pointed out, SNL has only had one openly gay male cast member in its entire 43 year history Continue reading "Comedians Call Out SNL for Not Casting Openly Gay Men: ‘They’re Bigoted’"
On Thursday night, Jimmy Kimmel addressed the sad news that Toys’R’Us will be closing all of its locations in the near future. “Toys’R’Us is closing all 735 of their stores and they’re putting Babies’R’Us up for adoption,” Kimmel joked. “I’ll tell ya, I’ll always remember Toys’R’Us as the store where my children had a complete and total meltdown every time we went there. I guess people don’t enjoy that anymore, they buy toys online now.” Kimmel added that Amazon “will not rest” until every other store is an “abandoned warehouse teeming with raccoons.” But then an unexpected visitor stopped by the show. It was Geoffrey the Giraffe, the Toys’R’Us mascot. “I have a question for everyone here,” Geoffrey the Giraffe said. “Do you guys like toys? Well, I don’t have any because we’re bankrupt!” Geoffrey the Giraffe began sobbing. Kimmel attempted to comfort the mascot, telling him Continue reading "Kimmel Attempts to Comfort Drunken Toys’R’Us Mascot Geoffrey the Giraffe Over Store Closings"
Trevor Noah took a moment on his Thursday show to slam Fox News host Tucker Carlson for remarks he made about the anti-gun student activists who staged walkouts across the country earlier this week. He began by telling his audience that he loved “watching all the short-circuiting” that occurred on Fox News and specifically singled out Carlson, who had a heated debate with a gun control activist Wednesday night over the young protestors, asking why “people who don’t have the right to buy guns have the right to make [his] gun laws.” But when the activist defended their right to protest as citizens, Carlson said the following:
“They’re not citizens. They’re children. They’re not at 18.”“Wow, now American kids aren’t even citizens?” Noah reacted. “So I guess in Tucker’s mind you’re Mexican until you turn 18, is that how it works? And then you smash a Continue reading "Trevor Noah Blasts Tucker Carlson For Saying Anti-Gun Students Aren’t ‘Citizens’: ‘Get The F**k Outta Here’"
Back in the day (read: not even two years ago), many people threatened to leave the country if President Donald Trump was elected. Now, one of Hollywood’s most prominent names is actually doing it. Matt Damon is moving his family to Australia, in part because he’s had enough of Trump, Page Six reports. According to The Daily Telegraph, Damon recently purchased property in Byron Bay, New South Wales, right next door to his friend Chris Hemsworth, of Thor fame. “Matt’s saying the move will not impact his work — as he will travel to wherever his projects are shooting. He’s also telling friends he wants to have a safe place to raise his kids,” a source told Page Six. Meanwhile, Damon has some other reasons to get out of dodge: He recently took a huge amount of flak from #MeToo supporters when he suggested that sexual assault allegations Continue reading "Matt Damon is Reportedly Moving His Family to Australia to Get Away From Trump"
Snapchat, what in the world were you thinking? On Thursday, pop superstar Rihanna responded to a horribly offensive Snapchat ad asking whether you would rather “slap Rihanna” or “punch Chris Brown.” “I’m just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess!” Rihanna said on Snapchat. “I’d love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain’t that dumb!” In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade and don’t understand why this is particularly heinous, it’s because of the people involved: Chris Brown became public enemy number one in 2009 when it was revealed that he brutally beat Rihanna, who was his girlfriend at the time. “You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV Continue reading "Rihanna Bites Back After Snapchat Runs Super Insensitive ‘Would You Rather’ Game About Her and Chris Brown"
