President Donald Trump declared that House Republicans “applauded and laughed loudly” when he mocked their colleague, Rep. Mark Sanford, in a meeting on Tuesday. It was reported on Tuesday night that the president mocked Sanford, a Republican from South Carolina, for losing the primary race to a candidate Trump endorsed at the last minute. “Is Mark Sanford here? I just want to congratulate him on running a great race,” Trump said, according to Politico’s Jake Sherman, one of the reporters to tweet about the remark. Per Sherman, Trump then called the Congressman “nasty,” prompting boos from lawmakers in the room. Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to claim that he was actually “applauded” for mocking Sanford’s loss. “Had a great meeting with the House GOP last night at the Capitol,” he wrote. “They applauded and laughed loudly when I mentioned my experience with Mark Sanford.” “I have Continue reading "Trump: House Republicans ‘Applauded and Laughed Loudly’ When I Mocked Colleague Rep.

After all the trash talk and hype, the so-called “Blobfish Basketball Classic” has ended with Sen. Ted Cruz emerging victorious, winning over TV host Jimmy Kimmel 11 to 9. But the real winners are these kids, says Sen Cruz.

The game, called the Blobfish Basketball Classic because of the tweet that started it all, was played Saturday night at Texas Southern University’s Arena in Houston, Texas. There was a lot of build-up, and the two men agreed to raise money through the event for the charities of their choice. The two charities are both focused on children. Senator Cruz played for Continue reading "Ted Cruz Whoops Jimmy Kimmel at ‘Blobfish Basketball Classic’, Says Kids Are the Real Winners"
My word, everything has been so serious today. Let’s take a little break and check out this weirdness together. Milos Zeman, president of the Czech Republic, called for a surprise press conference yesterday, and journalists attended without having any idea what it was going to be all about. When everyone gathered at Prague Castle, chancellor Vratislav Mynar brought out a humungous pair of red boxer shorts, and then Zeman had two firemen set the undergarments ablaze in front of the assembly. “I’m sorry to make you look like little idiots,” Zeman told reporters. “You really don’t deserve it.” Confused? I don’t blame you. According to NPR, the stunt was a reference to the art collective Ztohoven, which flew a similar pair of underwear from the flagpole of Prague Castle in 2015. The act was meant to protest Zeman’s anti-immigration rhetoric and friendliness with Russia and China, and Continue reading "WATCH: Czech President Lit Giant Red Underwear on Fire in a Bold Political Stunt Because…It’s Hard to Say"
There must be something in the water this Friday, because everyone’s popping off. In a weirder than usual end of the week in President Donald Trump‘s America, everyone basically decided to say some of the wackiest stuff they’ve ever said – and the stuff they’ve said before has been pretty damn wacky. Let’s start with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who’s already given us some major crazy eyes these past few months. Giuliani went off on Joe Biden, calling him a “moron” and a “mentally deficient idiot” who would never win against Trump in 2020. Jesus, Rudy, you want to tell us how you really feel? No clap back yet from Uncle Joe, but if it comes, you better believe it’ll be a good ‘un. Then, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) used some language unbefitting of a Southern gentleman to address all the people who criticize him for working Continue reading "TGIF: Here’s the Craziest Sh*t People Said Today, From Trump, to Giuliani, to Graham"
Remember when a young Pete Hegseth, just getting his Fox & Friends sea legs, hurled an axe at a target and missed, mauling a West Point drummer? That guy is now suing the Fox News regular. Jeff Prosperie filed a lawsuit this week claiming he was injured in the June 2015 incident after Hegseth “negligently attempted to throw an axe at a ‘target'” on Fox & Friends. Per the lawsuit, Orange County resident Prosperie was performing as a West Point drummer for a Fox & Friends segment on Flag Day when Hegseth threw an axe at a target, which he missed, striking the drummer. The target, according to Prosperie, “was negligently placed in an area which put pedestrians and other individuals, including the Plaintiff, in the path of peril.” What’s more, the suit claims that Hegseth was “negligent, wanton, reckless and carless [sic] in, among other things, throwing Continue reading "Bystander Who Pete Hegseth Mauled With An Axe on Live TV Sues Fox News Host"
Rev up the outrage machine ladies and gentleman, because a columnist wrote a line about grapes and Kimberly Guilfoyle — and her very astute boyfriend Donald Trump Jr. thinks it’s racist. Here’s how we got here: Linda Stasi, a columnist for the New York Daily News, penned an op-ed in which she called out Fox News for the conflict of employing Guilfoyle as a host while she dates Don Jr., the president’s son. It’s important to note that Stasi’s piece rests on the inaccurate premise that Guilfoyle is a reporter — she is expressly a host at Fox News. One very innocuous line caught the attention of John Nolte, Breitbart‘s resident nutcase, who now is apparently a social justice warrior. “Thing is, Guilfoyle is an otherwise brilliant woman. When it comes to picking men, though, she’d be better off picking grapes,” Stasi wrote in her Continue reading "Don Jr. Claims New York Daily News Line About Grapes is Racist Against Girlfriend Kim Guilfoyle"
Moments before President Donald Trump‘s press conference at his Singapore summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, a video was played for the reporters assembled. The four-minute clip, described by perplexed reporters in the room as a cheap Hollywood-style trailer, opens with panoramic shots of vistas, space, and bustling cosmopolitan centers. An iMovie-esque title card reads “A Destiny Pictures Production.” The trailer is heavy on the messaging to the North Korean leader. As footage of Trump and Kim runs alongside some weird shots of a girl frolicking in a field, a narrator doing his best In a World impression declares:
Two men, two leaders, one destiny. A story about a special moment in time, when a man is presented with one chance which may never be repeated. What will he choose? To show vision and leadership? Or not?The trailer even shouts-out the apparent production Continue reading "John Bolton’s National Security Council Confesses it Was Behind Trump’s NoKo Propaganda Trailer"
