A Washington Post photographer captured an image of President Donald Trump‘s handwritten notes during his Rose Garden appearance.
WaPo staff photographer Jabin Botsford took the shot of Trump clutching the white paper where words are visible.
The note, written with what appears to be a Sharpie read, in part: “They want to impeach me over acts that they did” and “Dems have no achomlishments.”
WaPo’s Dan Eggen tweeted out the image.
Stephen Colbert mocked President Donald Trump for turning his Infrastructure Week Rose Garden appearance into a “hissy fit.”
Colbert started off by talking about Trump walking out of a meeting with Democrats — a move Nancy Pelosi called a “temper tantrum” — and then went out to talk to the press.
“Now, Trump walked out the door, straight to the Rose Garden for a nationally televised hissy fit, complete with a podium adorned with a preprinted sign that said, ‘No collusion, no obstruction,'” Colbert said, noting the sign was right over the presidential seal.
The comedian then aired a clip of Trump explaining why the infrastructure meeting was so short.
“I just wanted to let you know that I walked into the room, and I told Senator Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, ‘I want to do infrastructure. I want to do it more than you want to do it. I’d be Continue reading "Colbert Mocks Trump’s Infrastructure Week ‘Hissy Fit’: ‘It’s My Way, Or No Highways’"
President Donald Trump insisted that what happened in his meeting with Democrats earlier today was definitely not a temper tantrum despite what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested.
In fact, according to his version of the events, he was “purposely very polite and calm.”
“In a letter to her House colleagues, Nancy Pelosi said: ‘President Trump had a temper tantrum for us all to see.’ This is not true. I was purposely very polite and calm, much as I was minutes later with the press in the Rose Garden. Can be easily proven. It is all such a lie!” Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday night.
Women for Trump co-founder Amy Kremer is convinced President Donald Trump is going to win in a landslide in 2020.
She also suggested people love him so much that they are showing up with walkers and crutches just to see him.
Speaking on CNN, Kremer said she was just in Pennsylvania — where Trump recently held a rally — and people are not concerned with talk of collusion or impeachment.
“I want to say that I just came from Pennsylvania spending several days there,” she said. “I was outside of that rally on Monday night.”
She added: “Those people aren’t waking up worried about collusion, obstruction, impeachment. They are waking up across America worried about how they’re going to feed families and clothe families. Do they have jobs, can they put a roof over their children’s head.”
Kremer then told the tale of a woman walking miles on Continue reading "CNN Guest Explains Why She Thinks Trump Will Roll in 2020: ‘I Saw a Woman Walk Several Miles on Crutches’ Just to See Him…"
Actor Jamie Foxx sparked a giggling fit among his castmates on Wednesday when he flubbed his lines and then acknowledged it was live TV.
“It’s live … everyone’s sitting at home just [thinking] their TV just messed up,” said Foxx, who is playing George Jefferson in the All in the Family Live redux.
The prompted the studio audience to crack up. The cast quickly followed suit.
Foxx strode around the room, then broke out in laughter once again before continuing his line.
Producer Norman Lear and his Act III Productions are behind the live, star-studded remake of All in the Family — as well as The Jeffersons — airing on ABC.

A Fox News contributor compared abortion to slavery on Wednesday.
Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy started off by suggesting that it was the left that is moving to a far more “radical position’ because they feel up against the wall in the abortion debate.
She then insisted the country was divided since Roe vs. Wade and the only cure was overturning the SCOTUS decision.
Next, turning to slavery she said this: ” I believe in my lifetime the only way this is going to be resolved is Roe V. Wade is going to be overturned. It’s going to go back to the states because this issue is as fundamental as an issue was back in the middle of the 1800s called slavery… This is such a fundamental human rights issue, the pro-choicers know they are losing, the momentum is on the side of the pro-lifers, the scientists, too. The only Continue reading "Fox Contributor Compares Abortion and Slavery: ‘Just as the Victim Was the Slave, the Victim Is the Unborn Child’"
Game of Thrones is over and talk of spinoffs rampant.
Yet, it seems Jimmy Kimmel has some ideas about a new crossover show and it involves the cast of Full House adopting a Game of Thrones character.
Introducing his spoof spinoff Monday night, Kimmel said this: “There are said to be at least three Game of Thrones spinoff shows in the works. HBO has been very secretive on the subject, but last night they released an exclusive first look at one of them which revives a beloved character we thought was gone, giving him new life, and a new TV family.”
The spoof then opens with Full House‘s Joey (Dave Coulier) struggling to open a pickle jar.
“I’m in a bit of a pickle,” he says piling on the sitcom schmaltz.
Danny (Bob Saget) then asks Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in full GOT garb if he would like Continue reading "Jimmy Kimmel Gives Game of Thrones Character a New Full House Family in Spinoff Spoof"
CNN’s S.E. Cupp took to Twitter Monday night to call out Alabama Public Television for refusing to air a kids’ show that features a gay cartoon wedding.
To start off Arthur‘s 22nd season, Mr. Ratburn, the title character’s teacher, gets married to a chocolatier in an episode titled “Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone.”
The director of programming for Alabama Public Television sent out an email saying the show would not air.
“Parents have trusted Alabama Public Television for more than 50 years to provide children’s programs that entertain, educate and inspire,” Mckenzie said in an email obtained by AL.com
The email continued on: “More importantly – although we strongly encourage parents to watch television with their children and talk about what they have learned afterwards – parents trust that their children can watch APT without their supervision. We also know that children who are younger Continue reading "S.E. Cupp Blasts Alabama Public Television for Refusing to Air Arthur Gay Wedding Episode"
Stephen Colbert mockingly apologized to the “self-interested toadies” of the GOP Monday night.
The apology was inspired by Rep. Justin Amash‘s decision to stand up to President Donald Trump and support the idea of impeachment.
Colbert first introduced Amash by noting “a Republican finally read the Mueller report” and stressing he was the first GOPer to say Trump engaged in impeachable conduct.
“So with that, I would like to offer the Republican Party this apology,” Colbert then said, looking directly at the camera with faux-sincerity.
Speaking directly to the GOP, the comedian snarked: “Now, I know I give the GOP a hard time and often imply that you’re a spineless group of self-interested toadies who would rather see the country destroyed than stand up to an out of control narcissistic toddler.”
“I was wrong,” he then quipped, “about one of you.”
The audience cheered.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham did not let Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg‘s swipe at her go unnoticed.
During the Town Hall which aired on Sunday, Buttigieg said this about Fox News’ opinion hosts while on Fox News:
“I get where that’s coming from especially when you see what goes on with some opinion hosts on this network. I mean when you’ve got Tucker Carlson saying that immigrants make America dirty. When you’ve got Laura Ingraham comparing detention centers with children in cages to summer camps.”
Mayor Pete Buttigieg had few kind words for President Donald Trump‘s tweets on Sunday night.
Yet his criticism was not solely of the president. The 2020 hopeful also called out Fox News hosts Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson for not appearing on Fox News in good faith.
During a Fox News Town Hall, the mayor was asked by Chris Wallace how he plans to handle Trump’s insults and tweets.
“Tweets are,” Buttigieg replied, before pausing. “I don’t care.”
His comment drew strong applause.
Wallace then argued that tweets are a very effective way for Trump to reach the nation.
Buttigieg countered that it was a very effective way for Trump to reach the media instead.
“It is an effective way to command the attention of media, we need to make sure we are changing the channel from this show that he’s created,” he said, adding. “I get it, Continue reading "Mayor Pete Buttigieg Slams Fox News Hosts Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham on Fox News"
Mayor Pete Buttigieg‘s comments on abortion and women’s bodies drew strong applause during the Fox News Town Hall Sunday night.
It started when a member of the audience asked the Democratic hopeful if he supported a women’s right to have an abortion regardless of their zip code.
Buttigieg responded: “I believe that the right of a woman to make her own decisions, about her reproductive health and her body is a national right. I was well it is an American freedom, and I believe that should be enjoyed by women everywhere.”
The audience applauded.
Fox News’s Chris Wallace, then asked a follow-up on late-term abortion, a focus of conservative ire and talking points.
“There has been a lot of focus about the states that have voted to restrict women’s rights, but been a movement in other direction, New York State, also this year, passed a new law Continue reading "Mayor Pete Pressed on Late-Term Abortion During Fox News Town Hall: ‘I Trust Women to Draw the Line’"
Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway ripped apart President Donald Trump’s Twitter attack on Rep. Justin Amash on Sunday.
And it can be summed up as simply “LIE LIE LIE!”
On Saturday, Amash made headlines when he — a Republican — made the case for Trump’s impeachment.
“While impeachment should be undertaken only in extraordinary circumstances, the risk we face in an environment of extreme partisanship is not that Congress will employ it as a remedy too often but rather that Congress will employ it so rarely that it cannot deter misconduct,” Amash wrote.
He continued on: “Our system of checks and balances relies on each branch’s [sic] jealously guarding its powers and upholding its duties under our Constitution. When loyalty to a political party or to an individual trumps loyalty to the Constitution, the Rule of Law — the foundation of liberty — crumbles.”
Trump, not one to
President Donald Trump slammed Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Sunday, calling his planned Town Hall with Mayor Pete Buttigieg a waste of time and complaining the anchor of Fox News Sunday speaks better of the Democratic hopeful than he speaks of him.
Trump also kvetched his favored network is moving to the “losing side.”
“Hard to believe that @FoxNews is wasting airtime on Mayor Pete, as Chris Wallace likes to call him. Fox is moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering the Dems,” Trump wrote. “They got dumped from the Democrats boring debates, and they just want in. They forgot the people who got them there.”
He added: “Chris Wallace said, ‘I actually think, whether you like his opinions or not, that Mayor Pete has a lot of substance…fascinating biography.’ Gee, he never speaks well of me – I like Mike Wallace better…and Alfred Continue reading "Trump Blasts Fox News, Chris Wallace in Twitter Thread: Moving to the ‘Losing Side’"
SNL’s Leslie Jones joined Colin Jost and Michael Che for Weekend Update to talk about Alabama passing a near-total abortion ban.
Things took a serious turn fast.
The comedian first appeared in a Handmaid’s Tale outfit and announced “we are all” Handmaid’s now.
“Leslie, I don’t think society is quite there yet,” Jost said.
“No? You would think that, right? You would really think that, but this is how it starts,” she said, ripping into the ban. “I’m not living my life when I see on the news a bunch of states are trying to ban abortion, and then tell me what I can and can’t do with my body.”
She added: “Next thing you know, I’m in Starbucks, and they won’t take my credit card because I’m a woman instead of the regular reason, which is I don’t have no money on it. What made me Continue reading "SNL’s Leslie Jones Rips Into Abortion Ban: ‘You Can’t Tell Me What to Do With My Body’"
Late Saturday night, President Donald Trump issued a series of tweets declaring he was strongly pro-life except in the cases of “rape, incest and protecting the life of the mother.”
He added that his position was the same as Ronald Reagan‘s.
“As most people know, and for those who would like to know, I am strongly Pro-Life, with the three exceptions – Rape, Incest and protecting the Life of the mother – the same position taken by Ronald Reagan,” Trump wrote.
He continued on: “We have come very far in the last two years with 105 wonderful new Federal Judges (many more to come), two great new Supreme Court Justices, the Mexico City Policy, and a whole new & positive attitude about the Right to Life.”
Trump further wrote: “The Radical Left, with late-term abortion (and worse), is imploding on this issue. We must stick together and Continue reading "Trump Declares He’s ‘Strongly Pro-Life’ Except in Cases of ‘Rape, Incest and Protecting Life of the Mother’"
Alec Baldwin returned to Saturday Night Live for the season finale to play a songster Trump joined by a chorus of his cronies, staffers, and briefly “son and Eric” to sing a musical number.
“So I’m on cruise control to a second term and there’s nothing the Democrats in Congress can do about it,” Baldwin’s Trump said before breaking into song. “So sit back and enjoy the ride, America, because…I’m going to have myself a real good time.”
Baldwin as Trump was then joined by his chorus which included including Melania Trump (Cecily Strong), Sarah Sanders (Aidy Bryant) and Mike Pence (Beck Bennett) for a Trumpian rendition of “Don’t Start Me Now” by Queen.
At one point, the song turned to the abortion controversy.
“Get the Supreme Court ready for a fight on abortion we got the most now,” they sang. “Women are Continue reading "Alec Baldwin’s Trump Sings ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ in SNL Cold Open"
Fox News host Jesse Watters sat down with longshot perennial presidential candidate Vermin Supreme on Saturday night.
The interview was at times downright bizarre.
Supreme –wearing his trademark boot on his head — started off by insisting he saw Joe Biden working for the TSA.
“Unfortunately, he fell asleep while he was sniffing my wife’s hair,” Supreme joked.
“Sleepy Joe!” Watters laughed.
He later said that to run for president you have to prove your a “regular guy.”
“Gotta prove you’re a regular guy and you do regular things all the time,” he said, just after making odd noises on live TV. “I’m just a regular guy…I got a haircut once, look at that.”
At one point spinning in his chair and looking away from Watters, Supreme also offered this insight: “Gingivitis has been eroding the gum line of this great nation of ours for long enough Continue reading "Man With Boot on His Head Vermin Supreme Goes on Watters World to Talk 2020, Mock Joe Biden"
Herman Cain does not approve of New York mayor Bill de Blasio‘s decision to run for president. In fact, he has a name for the mayor’s line of thinking: “New York-itis.”
During a panel discussion on Watters’ World with host Jesse Watters and Mike Huckabee on Saturday, Cain laid out his reasons for why people don’t like de Blasio.
“I believe that Mayor de Blasio will avoid Iowa. He will get crucified if he tries to go to Iowa talking about his Meatless Mondays,” Cain said. “And worse, killing babies after they are born.”
Then he said this: “Here is what I believe Mayor de Blasio suffers from: New York-itis. New York-itis is where they believe that they are the center of the universe and that everybody agrees with them. As Governor Huckabee said, he has succeeded at uniting the rest of the nation because the rest Continue reading "Herman Cain Diagnoses Bill de Blasio With ‘New York-itis’: He Thinks He’s ‘the Center of the Universe’"
In an email sent to supporters, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg defended his decision to appear on Fox News for a Town Hall.
His email also rebuked other Democrats — including Sen. Elizabeth Warren — who have declined the invitation to go on Fox News.
Mayor Pete started off by making it clear that he does not agree with the “voices on Fox.”
“I strongly condemn the voices on Fox and the media that uncritically amplify hate and the divisive sort of politics that gave rise to the presidency. Their goal is spread fear and lies, not serve as honest brokers with the American people,” the statement read.
The presidential candidate then noted that Fox News viewers should not be ignored.
“If we ignore the viewers of Fox News and every news platform that doesn’t share our worldview, we will surrender our ability to speak directly to millions of Continue reading "Mayor Pete Defends Fox News Town Hall: We ‘Surrender’ Ability to Speak to Millions By Ignoring Viewers"
