‘Phony Little Creep!’ Kimmel Threatens to ‘Pound’ Brian Kilmeade For Ripping His Health Care Monologue

A night after late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel laid into Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and his health care proposal, saying Cassidy lied to his face when he said that the bill would pass the “Jimmy Kimmel test,” the comedian took aim at conservatives who spent the day criticizing his previous night’s impassioned monologue. After addressing Cassidy saying that he didn’t “understand” the bill, pointing out that numerous medical organizations have come out against it, Kimmel then went after others who publicly called him out over his remarks. And he pulled no punches when it came to Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade, who labeled Kimmel as part of the Hollywood elite while dismissing his opinion. “The reason I found this comment to be particularly annoying is because this is a guy, Brian Kilmeade, who whenever I see him kisses my ass like a little boy meeting Batman,” the late-night host said. “Oh, Continue reading "‘Phony Little Creep!’ Kimmel Threatens to ‘Pound’ Brian Kilmeade For Ripping His Health Care Monologue"

Kimmel Responds to Trump: Will Sen. Bill Cassidy ‘Vote Against the Horrible Bill He Wrote?’

Last night, late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel lit up Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) over the Republican lawmaker’s health care bill that is being pitched in the Senate as a way to repeal Obamacare. With Cassidy having previously said that any health bill he proposed would have to pass the “Jimmy Kimmel test,” referencing Kimmel’s emotional recounting of his infant son’s struggles with a heart condition, the comedian straight up called Cassidy a liar while tearing apart the senator’s bill. This evening, President Donald Trump inserted himself into the situation when he tweeted out a defense of Cassidy, stating that the Louisiana Republican cares about people and “doesn’t lie.” This was after the president praised the Graham-Cassidy bill and said that it has a very good chance of passing. After Trump sent out his tweet, Kimmel directly responded with one of his own:

Anderson Cooper Rips Ed Martin in Heated Russia Debate: ‘What You’re Talking About is Gobbledygook’

Anderson Cooper and President Donald Trump surrogate Ed Martin got into a heated debate over the Russia probe during Wednesday’s Anderson Cooper: 360 At issue was the report that special counsel Robert Mueller is requesting information relating to controversial actions of Trump’s since taking office — including a meeting with Russian officials the day after FBI Director James Comey was fired. Cooper quizzed Martin on the reported 13 specific aspects of the investigation — and wanted Martin to admit that Trump himself is now under investigation. “Assuming it is true, and this information has been requested, and the special counsel is looking for 13 separate tracks on this, does that not indicate to you that the president is under investigation?” Martin dodged. “Assuming it’s true that Trump won the election –” Martin said. Cooper promptly interjected. “What you’re talking about is gobbledygook,” Cooper said. “You’re just not answering my Continue reading "Anderson Cooper Rips Ed Martin in Heated Russia Debate: ‘What You’re Talking About is Gobbledygook’"

Curt Schilling: Conservatives at ESPN ‘Were Afraid to Be Found Out’

Politics and ESPN has been a hot topic since SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill‘s tweet last week in which she called President Donald Trump a white supremacist. Curt Schilling has not been shy about weighing in on the issue since. The former Red Sox pitcher and current Breitbart host, though, claims that politics — at least conservative politics — were taboo while he was working at the Worldwide Leader. Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight Wednesday, the former ESPN analyst — who was fired after sharing an anti-transgender post on Facebook — said he was part of a secret society of sorts at the network. “We were like one of those secret Hogwarts clubs in ESPN,” Schilling said. “Behind-the-scenes, people would walk up to me — in my ear and say, ‘Listen, I’m with you on your politics.’ You were afraid to be found out.” Schilling went on to Continue reading "Curt Schilling: Conservatives at ESPN ‘Were Afraid to Be Found Out’"
