Last night, James Corden hosted the Grammys, with Bruno Mars and Kendrick Lamar stealing the show, and most of the awards. As part of the show, Corden had celebrities including Cardi B, John Legend, DJ Khaled, Cher, and Snoop Dogg read extracts from Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury.
Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House includes interviews with several people close to President Donald Trump, including former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and Sam Nunberg, a former campaign aide.
Wolff claims that Bannon as calling Donald Trump Jr. “treasonous” and “unpatriotic” for attending a meeting with a Russian lawyer during the campaign. The book also claims that Trump “assured” his wife Melania that he would not win the 2016 election, and that Melaniawas in tears when he did.
You should probably stick around until the end of the video, though. There’s a special guest amongst the celebrities.
You can probably guess how those close to Donald Trump reacted to the segment…
Conservative commentator Alex Jones is at it again.
This time he shared a video that he claims is “final proof that Michelle Obama is a man.” Oh, and he implied that Joan Rivers was killed for revealing this information.
Jones, who has previously suggested that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax and who has cast doubt on 9/11, has long promoted the theory that Michelle Obama was born a man but said the ‘new viral video’ proved that he did not invent the theory himself.
We won’t dignify the video with an embed here, but here’s a taste of Jones’s words on the matter:
“Analyzing the photographs, Michelle appears to have a very large penis in her pants. Her shoulders are wide, her face is very, very, masculine.”
“She looks like a tranny and so you ask yourself, are the children a beard?”
Sean Spicer Just Tried To Blame Hillary Clinton For A Trump Problem, And Nobody’s Having It

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is one of the special treasures to come out of President Donald’s Presidency. It’s not his lies or his hysterical method of delivering half-truths. It’s Spicer’s conviction, his belief that what he’s reporting is factual and everyone is wrong if you think he’s wrong.
Spicey’s most recent farce was, surprisingly,, but rather misspeaking about former acting Attorney General Sally Yates. When asked about Yates’ political ties and preferences during President Donald’s presidency and why she was fired, he said:
[She is] someone who is not exactly a supporter of the president’s agenda. Who, a couple days after this first conversation took place, refused to uphold a lawful order of the president. Who is not exactly someone that was excited about President Trump taking office or his agenda… We did what we were supposed to do. The president made, ultimately, the right decision… [She was] appointed by the Obama administration and a strong supporter of Clinton.
“[She was] appointed by the Obama administration and a strong supporter of Clinton.”
This definitely got Twitter talking.
Sally Yates was a “strong supporter of Clinton,” per Spicer. How does he prove that? She was a senior DOJ official.
While President Obama did appoint Yates to Deputy Attorney General in 2015, before she was a U.S. Attorney General for Georgia, appointed by George W. Bush. Even before that, she had a career with the Justice Department stretching back years.
Sally Yates was hired to US Attorney’s office by conservative Republican Bob Barr under first Bush, later promoted under Clinton, GWB, Obama
But since posting the photograph online, Hillary’s staunchest opponents thought that because she posed with the Secretary of State, she must be some kind of devil-supporting, child-eating, soul-crushing, criminal-supporting monster. And that she’s worthy of receiving death threats for her support of a Clinton presidency.
I’ve been feeling so heartbroken since yesterday’s election and decided what better way to relax than take my girls hiking. So I decided to take them to one of favorite places in Chappaqua. We were the only ones there and it was so beautiful and relaxing. As we were leaving, I heard a bit of rustling coming towards me and as I stepped into the clearing there she was, Hillary Clinton and Bill with their dogs doing exactly the same thing as I was. I got to hug her and talk to her and tell her that one of my most proudest moments as a mother was taking Phoebe with me to vote for her. She hugged me and thanked me and we exchanged some sweet pleasentries and then I let them continue their walk. Now, I’m not one for signs but I think I’ll definitely take this one. So Proud. #Iamstillwithher #lovetrumpshate #keepfighting #lightfollowsdarkness
Trump supporters are claiming the photograph was a staged one, citing the fact that Gerster’s family threw a fundraiser for Clinton years ago as proof.
In an interview with The New York Post, Gerster confirmed that she’s received death threats but doesn’t want to focus on them.
“I don’t want to discuss this anymore. This story needs to go away. It got a lot of positive feedback from a lot of people, but I don’t want this to add on to this (blowback), I don’t want to fuel the fire.”
There’s two words most Americans will probably use to describe this election: fed up. The constant mud slinging, the political attacks, the sophomoric arguments, and the fact that a multiple-failed sexist businessman who owes almost $ 1 billion in unpaid taxes and a career politician with zero enthusiasm except for furthering her own career are our presidential candidates is kind of sickening.
We all just want it to be over.
And Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon, during their final Trump-Clinton debate felt the same way. So they broke character and started running through the streets of New York, embracing ‘random’ people on the street.
But that doesn’t mean they didn’t get a lot of digs at each other before a classic cold open packed full of jokes.
And even though the last bit was part of the sketch, the idea that we just want this crappy race completely devoid of respect to be over will hopefully be a step in the right direction for whoever’s running in the next four years.
As election day nears, we have some critical questions to ponder. Now should be a time for research, reflection, and introspection — a time to really think about who we are as a people and what we want.
…And what better way to engage in this process than by determining which HRC pursuit best fits your personality? Enjoy.
