Politico’s Co-Founder Calls Breitbart ‘Very Smart,’ Says He Doesn’t Endorse Them

screen-shot-2017-01-09-at-12-31-51-pmMike Allen is often described as one of the most powerful journalists in D.C., so it makes sense that Breitbart News is hyping up a compliment he gave them. Here’s a headline that’s currently featured on their site: “Mike Allen: ‘Very Smart’ Breitbart News Sees Business, Tech, Media, Politics ‘Colliding and Converging’.” The site is extremely controversial, though, which is why other journalists and news consumers are so shocked that Allen praised it. Recently, they’ve been lambasted by the police for making up a story about Muslims attacking a German church and were penalized by Kellogg’s with ad revocation because the ideology featured on the site wasn’t “aligned with [their] values as a company.” Breitbart is commonly thought of as a broadcasting hub for the leaders of the alt-right. Here is what Allen said during an appearance on the site’s SiriusXM show to promote his forthcoming project, Axios:

Chris Crocker Reprises Iconic ‘Leave Britney Alone’ Performance in Honor of Trump

screen-shot-2017-01-09-at-10-28-29-amAn Internet icon has reprised the role the made him famous, all in the name of ridiculing the President-elect. When you expand President-elect Donald Trump‘s tweets, you’ll usually see a few names near the top of the replies that you are familiar with. There are people on Twitter who have dedicated themselves to responding to him with lightning speed. It’s their whole schtick. One of the names, however, might be a little more recognizable than others, but maybe you can’t quite remember where you’ve heard it. That name is Chris Crocker and while he’s known today as a Trump agitator on Twitter, he rose to prominence in 2007 when his tearfully-vlogged plea for the American public and press to “leave Britney [Spears] alone!” made him an overnight sensation. Remember that? The tagline has been a popular refrain in pop culture for nearly a full decade now.

Meryl Streep Gets Backlash From MMA Fans Over Swipe at Sport During Globes Speech

Meryl Streep MMA (HFPA/Shutterstock)As you might expect, there’s been a strong conservative backlash to Meryl Streep‘s Golden Globes speech on Sunday night, in which she strongly criticized President-elect Donald Trump without naming him. But the newly-minted Cecil B. DeMille award winner also upset another constituency in her speech: mixed martial arts fans. Followers of the sport took umbrage with a line in Streep’s address which they felt was a dig. “Hollywood is crawling with foreigners,” Streep said. “So if you kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts.” MMA fans and fighters took to Twitter to express their outrage.

FLASHBACK: Trump Awkwardly Sings ‘Green Acres’ at the Emmys… in Denim Overalls

Note: This post has been republished from 08/12/15. — —
A “polymath” is a person who’s really, really smart about a wide variety of subjects. Donald Trump, however, is an example of what happens when you switch the “a” to an “e.” At least that’s one possibility, given the crazy sh*t the 2016 GOP presidential contender and incessant whiner has been videotaped doing throughout his prolonged career as a… whatever he is. Luckily, most of it has been uploaded online for all the world to see. From a hilariously awkward sketch in which Trump creepily makes out with Rudy Giuliani in drag, to his “Trump Steaks” commercial for the now-bankrupt Sharper Image, it’s all there. You’re welcome. Trump: The Game

Back in July, we reported on the 1989 board game, Trump: The Game — Donald’s attempt to out-Monopoly Monopoly. The original commercial’s popularity surged Continue reading "FLASHBACK: Trump Awkwardly Sings ‘Green Acres’ at the Emmys… in Denim Overalls"

Tomi Lahren Goes on Tweetstorm Against Meryl Streep, Promises ‘Final Thoughts’ on Golden Globes

The Blaze‘s Tomi Lahren is now so well known for her fast-paced, no-holds-barred “Final Thoughts” segment that she’s started leveling it ominously at people or situations she isn’t a fan of. Last night, when Meryl Streep tore into Donald Trump at the Golden Globes, Lahren tweeted this warning that the famous actress was heading for a “Final Thoughts” clip all her own: She didn’t stop there. After making it clear that today’s “Final Thoughts” will be Hollywood-centric, she went on:

Conway Asks: Why Do You Believe What Trump Says ‘Rather Than What’s in His Heart’?

Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway faced a grueling interview today where she was confronted by one of the mogul’s most enduring and controversial political moments. During Meryl Streep‘s fiery speech against the president-elect at the Golden Globes, she brought up the moment in the 2016 election where Trump seemed to crudely mock the disability of New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski. Conway was asked about this by CNN’s Chris Cuomo, where he pressed her to explain why Trump couldn’t just admit to what he did, apologize for it, and move on. “That is not what he did,” Conway said when asked if what Trump did was wrong. Cuomo brought up how Trump can deny mocking Kovaleski’s arthrogryposis as much as Continue reading "Conway Asks: Why Do You Believe What Trump Says ‘Rather Than What’s in His Heart’?"

Meryl Streep’s Takedown of Donald Trump Was a Little Bit of Everything

screen-shot-2017-01-09-at-8-11-23-amOne of the most confounding aspects of the Donald Trump era is that he radically alters most of the old rules and upends the majority of the traditional alliances within our political warfare. There’s no better example of how true that really is than Meryl Streep’s controversial acceptance speech at the Golden Globes in which she torched Trump while urging vigilance among the press to stand up to him and his coming presidency. In the “olden” days (2015), when a member of the Hollywood elite would inappropriately take time from a live televised speech, which had nothing to do with politics, to attack a prominent Republican, we would pretty much all know exactly which battle station to report to and it would be highly predictable how the ensuing culture war would go down. But now, at least for me, there is no strong sense of clarity as to how Continue reading "Meryl Streep’s Takedown of Donald Trump Was a Little Bit of Everything"
