News Reporter Completely Loses It Over Black Friday Live On TV–And We Feel For Him

Joshua Short has waited his entire journalistic career to cover a Black Friday live on the air. Don’t judge — we all have different goals. He finally got his chance this year, but the broadcast didn’t exactly go as planned. Josh and his news station expected long lines and the usual chaos that accompany Black Friday, but it appears 2017 was the year that residents of Chicago and the surrounding suburbs got it together.

There was no Black Friday crowd for Josh to report on.

Josh, who obviously isn’t a fan of “fake news,” decided to give one seriously honest report. The show’s anchor, Alex Wilcox, did his introduction and finally asked, “Josh, how are things going?”

Josh let him know exactlyhow things were going in this now-viral rant:

Alex caught that proverbial pass expertly with a smile and a chuckle. He then commented to Josh that he may be on the wrong side of the mall and there may be people at another entrance.

Check out the sweet screen-blur from Josh making his emotional exit:

Alex awkwardly ended the segment by stammering “Uh, Josh is gone, we lost Josh.” Always ready with a sense of humor, Joshua Short has embraced his moment of too-much-honesty and talked about it on social media.

He even posted the video with a bit of commentary:

And just like that, Josh won the hearts and minds of the world:

It didn’t take long before other reporters declared themselves #TeamJosh:

Someone should start a petition for Josh to report all the news from now on.

Kim Kardashian Just Completely Destroyed Donald Trump

Although Kim K. hasn’t really been outspoken about Trump’s presidency thus far, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t hold some strong opinions on the man. I mean, the Kardashian name isn’t exactly synonymous with incisive political commentary

Ouch. That wasn’t all though.

Kardashian also talked about the escalation of violence as a defining characteristic of Trump’s current term:

Kim also commented on how seriously she takes commenting on political issues and explains why she doesn’t do it often.

When asked if she follows Trump on Twitter, Kim simply responded that she does not, but added, “I follow Obama though.”

Barack Obama Is Completely Destroying President Trump On Twitter

If he isn’t tweeting “official policy,” he’s mocking his political adversaries or crying “fake news,” and eliciting hundreds of thousands of likes in the process.

But if he thought he had the title of “Most Popular Twitter Celebrity” all wrapped up, he just got a rude awakening.

Former President Barack Obama responded to the Charlottesville protest with a tweet that quickly went viral,  amassing more likes than any tweet in history:

Apparently, Obama has six of the ten most-liked tweets of all time. Trump isn’t even on the list. Other top tweeters include Ariana Grande, Ellen DeGeneres, Linkin Park, and Hillary Clinton.

Obama is also way ahead of Trump in terms of followers, with nearly 94 million, compared to about 36 million for Trump.

In a breakdown of followers, according to TwitterAudit.com, a vast majority of Trump’s followers are bots:

This Reporter Completely Cornered Sean Spicer, And People Are Rooting Her On

Sean Spicer’s day took an ugly turn after an NBC News reporter took him to task during a White House Press briefing.

NBC News’ Hallie Jackson grilled Spicer during Monday’s press briefing over the existence of audio recordings President Donald Trump may be keeping of his conversations with other officials.

Trump, if you recall, tweeted this (now infamous) message last week after firing FBI Director James Comey, who was leading an investigation into whether Trump and his associates colluded with Russian operatives to win last year’s presidential election.

Spicer deflected Jackson’s questions––as expected. Jackson was having none of it.

“Why won’t you just explain whether or not there are recordings of the president’s conversations?” she asked.

“The president has made it clear what his position is,” the embattled press secretary responded. (Spicer did not elaborate as to what he meant by this; he did say last week that he spoke to Trump about the tweet, but that Trump had nothing else to say about the Twitter tantrum.)

Jackson pressed on: “That’s not my question. It’s why won’t you explain it.”

Spicer responded, “I understand that because that’s what the president’s position is.”

But she persisted.

“So given that you refuse to confirm or deny any of this, how is any senior official supposed to feel comfortable having a private conversation with the president?” she asked.

“As I’ve said Hallie, the president has made it clear what his position is,” Spicer said, by rote.

“Even with these Congressional lawmakers calling to see if they exist?”

“Hallie, I’ve asked the … Hallie, I answered the question over and over again the same way,” said the weary Spicer.

But Hallie Jackson is far from the only person in Washington demanding answers, even if Spicer refuses to give them.

A host of lawmakers have issued calls for Trump to turn over any tapes of conversations with Comey. The controversy could also fuel a boycott led by the Democrats of whoever Trump nominates as Comey’s replacement.

“You can’t be cute about tapes. If there are any tapes of this conversation, they need to be turned over,” said Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who has often voiced his grievances with the administration and his colleagues.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said Trump must immediately provide Congress with any existing tapes he might have, adding that Democrats will refuse to vote on Comey’s replacement until a special prosecutor is named in charge of the Russia probe.

“To have that special prosecutor, people would breathe a sigh of relief because then there would be a real independent person overlooking the FBI director,” Schumer said on CNN’s State of the Union.
