The New York Times is suggesting Hillary Clinton took actions as secretary of state because of financial donations that were made to the Clinton Foundation by Russians pushing for a Canadian uranium company. The Times reported in an explosive piece on Thursday that Canadian records show the chairman of Russian-owned Uranium One gave over $2 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation, which the Clintons’ didn’t disclose. At the same time, Russia pushed for control of a Canadian Uranium company. A Kremlin-connected bank promoting stock in the company also reportedly paid Bill Clinton $500,000 for a speech in Moscow. Eventually, the Russian-Canadian uranium. »

First, he called Silva a moron. Then he »

Hillary Rodham Clinton launched her second presidential campaign on Sunday and heads into the primary free of opponents and with the backing of Hollywood’s biggest Democratic supporters. Andy Spahn, who for years worked with Jeffrey Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg and David Geffen raising money for Democratic candidates, describes entertainment industry support for Clinton’s presidential race as both deep and wide. Built on years of personal friendships and often dating back to Bill Clinton’s years as president, the support for Hillary has grown as she neared a decision on another presidential run. “Jeffrey, Steven, Haim Saban… you can run down the list. »

Ted Cruz has made it his adoration for The Simpsons public, recently citing his two favorite episodes. The Presidential candidate said he loved “‘Round Springfield,” which sparked the post 9/11 French slur “cheese-eating surrender monkeys”, and “Treehouse of Horror VII,” when aliens took over Bill Clinton and Bob Dole’s bodies. Unfortunately for Cruz, the feeling isn’t mutual, as the Simpson’s show runner doesn’t reciprocate the love.

Is Hillary Clinton one of the punniest people on the planet? She might be. The recently announced presidential candidate has created an error page for her website that's so hilarious it might just have you wanting to stumble upon it on purpose. Her site's 404 error page, which pops up if you come across a page that doesn't exist, shows an epic throwback photo of Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton and Hillary posing with Donald Duck. Even better than their poses are their hats! The Clinton family decided to don matching hats with Donald's eyes for the amazing photo op. In addition to the amazing photo, Hillary's error page tells users, "Oops, that link wasn't what it was quacked up to »
“The View” returned from hiatus on Monday and jumped right into the thick of things, discussing Hillary Clinton’s announcement that she will be running for President. While they didn’t all see eye to eye on Clinton’s candidacy, the hosts agreed they love the idea of Bill Clinton as the “First Dude.” “Let’s objectify a man for once and talk about what he wears to the first state dinner,” co-host Nicolle Wallace said.

This weekend, Hillary Clinton came clean about her second attempt to enter the White House as the first female president of the United States. Her announcement video, posted on Facebook, felt like a two-minute ad for the United Colors of Benneton; the generic infomercial music was especially boring. You can do better than that, Hc! Since we know the Clintons have pretty decent taste in music (see the 1993 Fleetwood Mac reunion that Bill Clinton made happen), we’d like to suggest the Clinton machinery spice things up a little bit on the campaign trail with these selections. (Feel free to leave more suggestions in the comments.)"Supermodel," RuPaul Hillary would be crazy not to take advantage of that fact that she’s already received an endorsement from the host of your favorite television show.

After being coy about it last year, Hillary Clinton has announced she will run for president in the 2016 elections, which will mark her second bid. The 67-year-old former New York senator and Democratic party leader, a favorite among members and supporters of the group and wife of former President Bill Clinton, announced the news on her website, hillaryclinton.com, on Sunday amid an ongoing controversy over her use of personal emails while she served as Secretary of State. In a video message posted on her website, Hillary appears in person after several people are shown expressing their hopes and plans for the future. "I'm getting ready to do something too—I'm running »
Hillary Clinton thinks the second time's a charm, because she's in the race to become the second President Clinton. Hillary personally made the announcement in a campaign ad, which clearly is targeting the middle class and taking aim at people at the high end of the financial spectrum. She makes the announcement at 1:34 in the video. Hillary's campaign chairman announced her candidacy minutes before the video was released. Chairman John D. Podesta emailed campaign donors saying, »

Saturday Night Live got hip to the Empire phenomenon early, building an entire sketch around the Fox smash hit back in March and then asking breakout star Taraji P. Henson to host her own show mere weeks later. That's some turnaround time. Still, despite the series' apparent interest in capitalizing on a genuine media dynamo, the Henson-hosted show didn't pack the punch of even the most flaccid of Empire offerings.
Henson's energy remained high throughout – here is a host that, when they say how excited they are to be there, »
Our 25-day national nightmare is over.
Almost four weeks after the end of Empire‘s Season 1 finale, Taraji P. Henson (Aka She Who Absolutely Must Be Nominated for an Emmy in 2015) returned to the small screen to host a decidedly above-average episode of Saturday Night Live.

Yeah, a few skits didn’t quite live up to their promising concepts — I really wanted that Game of Thrones parody to be great… but the jokes played fairly obviously, and it didn’t give Henson much to do. Still, Cookie Lyon’s portrayer performed »
After a slow start to 2015 (anniversary special excluded), the last two weeks of “Saturday Night Live” have been a return to form. Both the Dwayne Johnson and Michael Keaton episodes were excellent, now the show has the chance to complete the trifecta with Taraji P. Henson as host. There’s bound to be at least one “Empire”-centric sketch tonight (probably involving musical guest Mumford & Sons, because why not), but personally? I’m hoping Taran Killam gets to bust out his amazing Brad Pitt impression opposite Henson in a parody of “The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.” (Those banking on a “Person Of Interest" parody might be disappointed.) Still, there’s far more than parodies planned tonight, and as per usual, I’ll be covering them in liveblog form. Follow along starting at 11:30 pm Est, and leave your comments throughout the show as I grade each segment in real time. »

Bill Clinton pushed back on a New York Times piece that suggested he looks frail and wouldn’t play a central role in his wife Hillary Clinton’s second presidential campaign. Politico reported the former president described the recent Times piece that said he looks “older than his 68 years” and wouldn’t play as big a role in his wife’s campaign as “creative writing.” When asked about Clinton’s comments, the former president’s spokesperson noted the Times issued a correction.

It turns out Selina Meyer’s got an advantage over the real U.S. presidents! The V.P.-turned-potus on HBO’s Veep occasionally gets input from actual politicians. At the New York premiere of Veep’s season 4, star Julia Louis-Dreyfus revealed to Us Weekly that former President Bill Clinton has weighed in on her job in the fictional Oval Office. “I had Bill Clinton say to me, ‘You know what the best part of your job is? No term limits. No term limits!’” she said, laughing. “That was pretty cool.” Starring on four [...] »
Nancie Atwell was never particularly fond of teachers growing up. It wasn't until she took over a class herself that she realized her fate. Now, 42 years later, the English teacher from Maine has received the ultimate recognition for all her hard work in education by winning the $1 million Global Teacher Prize. Atwell, 63, beat out 1,300 applicants from 127 countries. And now she plans to donate all the money to the Center for Teaching and Learning, a nonprofit demonstration school she founded in Edgecomb, Maine, in 1990 with the purpose of teaching students and teachers at the same time.

It's Justin Bieber's world and we're just living in it! Between the egging incident of 2014 and that one awkward time Justin declared his disdain for Bill Clinton and peed into a bucket (memories!), there's a lot about this world-famous pop star to make fun of. Nothing was off limits during Comedy Central's Roast of Justin Bieber, where celebrities like Snoop Dogg, Will Ferrell, and Ludacris tore into The Biebs. See 25 of Justin Bieber's wildest photos. Picture this: Justin sitting pretty on stage while an audience watched [...] »
Justin Bieber wants us to know he's changed. He's certainly, most definitely, not who we thought he was. He has spent the past two months on a meticulously planned "I'm a Good Guy" campaign. Carefully spoon-feeding us his new persona as an earnest, self-aware adult who is truly sorry about the mistakes he's made. The person who shared headlines with the word gate—Egggate, Monkeygate—has disappeared. He told former President Bill Clinton to "f--k off." Publically wished Anne Frank had been a Belieber. Spent a night in jail. Was caught scuffling with Orlando Bloom over Miranda Kerr. "Turned a plane into a bong," his words, not ours. And left a never-ending trail of »
William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton is, like most former presidents of the USA, one of the most recognisable and talked-about figures in world politics. Not only is his wife, Hillary, Barack Obama’s former Secretary of State, but Clinton himself was one of the most popular presidents in the history of the Us while he was in office.
Serving as the 42nd President of the United States between January 1993 and January 2001 after beating incumbent George H W Bush in the November 1992 election, Clinton is often described as a “New Democrat” and someone who adopted a new centrist “Third Way” in American politics.
Notable policies attempted during his presidency include the signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement, failure to pass national healthcare reform, welfare reform, and the longest period of peacetime economic expansion in Us history. Yet it is not only Clinton’s policies that make for intriguing reading – because »

Norman Lear was a celebrity producer of television sitcoms decades before the current era of superstar showrunners dawned. His string of Nielsen hits during the early- to mid-1970s — All in the Family, The Jeffersons, Sanford and Son, One Day at a Time, and Maude — made him one of Hollywood’s most powerful creatives. At one point in 1976, nine shows produced under the Lear name were on TV. But beyond his ratings success, Lear became an icon as much (and perhaps more) because of the kinds of comedies he made. His were shows that “employed the power of humor in the service of human understanding,” as President Bill Clinton put it when presenting the producer with the National Medal of Arts in 1999. “He held up a mirror to American society and changed the way we look at it.” While Lear, now 92, hasn’t produced new TV shows in »

Jimmy Kimmel has a lot to learn when it comes to public service. The late-night host had Chelsea Clinton on his show Monday to talk about her “Serve a Year” campaign, in which young people spend a year serving in impoverished schools, health clinics, disaster relief efforts, and other projects. Unfortunately for Clinton, Kimmel had not brushed up on any of this information prior to appearing in a PSA for the program. See Photos: Party Report: President Clinton Softballs with Ump Matt Lauer (Photos) Kimmel immediately took issue with the name of the program, and suggested it be called “National »
