Hillary Clinton supporters are out in force, cautioning reporters on what words not to use in order to avoid “coded sexism,” according to New York Times reporter Amy Chozick. On Wednesday, she wrote that she was approached by a group called Hrc “super volunteers,” who told her certain words should be off limits. A group called Hrc Super Volunteers just warned me “We will be watching, reading, listening and protesting coded sexism…” (1/2) — Amy Chozick (@amychozick) March 25, 2015 2/2 Sexist words, they say, include “polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, inevitable, entitled, over confident…” — Amy Chozick (@amychozick) March 25, 2015 Also sexist, »

While Jeb Bush and self-proclaimed rock and roll hater Ted Cruz have already positioned themselves for a 2016 Republican presidential run, the Gop's most well-known candidate and frontrunner, 2012 runner-up Mitt Romney, announced that he wouldn't enter the electoral fray this time around. Romney eschewed his oft-criticized robotic nature with a charismatic appearance Wednesday night on The Tonight Show.
For the former Presidential candidate's appearance, Jimmy Fallon resurrected one of his all-time greatest Saturday Night Live-era gags: The man in the mirror routine, which Fallon previously used to imitate Mick Jagger »
This story first appeared in the April 10 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. In the aftermath of the Citizen United court case, the 2016 presidential election is shaping up as potentially the most expensive ever waged. So Hillary Clinton and the other potential candidates should keep their eyes on a new FCC petition that could dramatically reduce the cost of those all-important television ads. Under current law, candidates must be offered a station's lowest price for TV ads, but if another advertiser later offers to pay more for that time, the station can resell it to the higher bidder.

Move over Hillary and friends – the really powerful woman around here is Imogen the bedbug hunter
Television pundits are usually “comedians” you’ve never heard of. “Writers and broadcasters” desperate to become a tiny bit famous, who’ll come and say anything (“The 70s, they were good. Choppers, yay!) for a few quid if they’re lucky. Sometimes I even get asked (I know, imagine!). I say no, otherwise I might have to review myself, which would be ugly.
Hillary Clinton: the Power of Women (BBC2) not only has a much higher level of discussion – what has changed for women and girls in the world during the last 20 years – but also a much classier cast of pundits in three former Us secretaries of state: Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Clinton herself, who of course may be headed higher still.

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 »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
"Game of Thrones" star Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Tuesday night, and one of her videos included a clip from Season 5, which starts in just a couple of weeks on HBO. Maisie started playing Arya when she was 12, which is too young to watch the show, but she watched it with her whole family. They had to get her gran drunk when the boob scenes came on! She trained herself to sword-fight left-handed, since that's how Arya was written and that's what the fans expected. She admitted she hasn't read the GoT books ("A Song of Ice and Fire"), though. The second video shares the »

Michael Mosley focuses on The Wonderful World Of Blood, bedbugs hunted in The Ladykillers: Pest Detectives and Hillary Clinton explores The Power Of Women. Plus: Griff Rhys Jones goes highbrow in The Quizeum, Queen Elizabeth Hurley leads The Royals and age shall not weary them in OAPs Behaving Badly
“In order to understand the pest, you have to think like the pest,” says south London pest controller Imogen, one of four “ladykillers” profiled in this breezy if icky new fly-on-the-wall documentary series. In the battle against bedbugs, Imogen has a secret weapon up her sleeve: Alfie the dog, who is adept at sniffing out the bugs’ pheromones. Elsewhere, a city farm is being plagued with rats and pigeons, which is great news for ladykiller Deborah: “I love rat jobs!” she beams. Ali Catterall

Motherhood sure looks good on Chelsea Clinton! The 35-year-old beauty, who welcomed daughter Charlotte with husband Marc Mezvinsky in late September, stepped out in Los Angeles on Monday, where she was photographed heading to the Jimmy Kimmel Live! studio lot to announce the new "Serve a Year" campaign, which encourages youth to spend a year post-high school or college serving their communities. Bill and Hillary Clinton's only daughter was dressed chicly for the occasion, looking pretty and professional in a fitted black dress, pumps and a printed jacket. The blond stunner wore her hair down and was all smiles as paps snapped pics, appearing happy and content as she attended the »
Still the subject of attention over her use of her personal email as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton joked about her relationship with the press at a journalism awards ceremony Monday. “My relationship with the press has been at times, shall we say, complicated,” Clinton said at a dinner for the award of Syracuse University’s Toner Prize for Excellence in Political Reporting. “So I thought to myself what could possibly go wrong,” she went on to say in front of a slew of reporters.

On last night’s Scandal, Lena Dunham played Hannah Horvath, only a version of Hannah Horvath that lived in Washington D.C., had sex with the most powerful men in the U.S. government and wrote a memoir about it. She had a really bad wig, but she fit right in with the cast — particularly when it comes to reciting one of Shonda Rhimes’ trademark monologues. Salute to you, Lena, for making it do what it do.
Ok, now for the rest of the people on this show.
1. Aren’t we glad that Abby and Olivia are friends again so we can watch Liv judge Abby’s dating tastes like the good ole days?
It was nice to see Oliva fight off making a face upon discovering that Abby and Leo have been boning for months now. Granted, Olivia is in no position to judge anyone’s taste in men or sexual activity, »
With Robin Wright's stylist Kemal Harris pulling double-duty as her costume designer on the third season of House of Cards, first lady Claire Underwood is getting the Jackie O treatment. Wright's wardrobe still is extremely fitted and tailored but with a shock of color (after two seasons of monochromatic tones) and that much-talked-about Ralph Lauren silver gown. When it comes to giving presumed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton styling advice, however, Harris demurs: "I don't want to change her wardrobe. I want her to change the world!" Still, she offers up a few ideas: Harris recommends a rally-

On Fox News Sunday yesterday, Chair of the House Select Committee on Benghazi Trey Gowdy (R-sc) told host Chris Wallace that his investigation was not a Hillary Clinton oppo research effort in disguise, and suggested anybody -- say, next guest Representative Adam Schiff (D-ca), for instance -- who felt the committee was unfairly focusing on Clinton should address their complaints to Hillary@clintonemail.com. »

Where once it was very unlikely that a sitting president would appear on a latenight talk show, Obama has made it a given, not just to sit with a host and do a breezy interview, but to also engage in a comedy skit.
When Obama made his first appearance since taking office on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” in 2009, pundits wondered whether it was too unpresidential; those criticisms have abated. Now the question is what can draw attention and get people listening.
Presidential contenders have made a point of visiting latenight talk shows ever since candidate Bill Clinton went on “The Arsenio Hall Show” in 1992, playing the saxophone and helping boost his likability.

‘Kenyan-born Muslim socialist president’ holds his own against comedy host but strikes serious note about ‘criminals’ who shot police in Ferguson
It was a long interview – the better part of 40 minutes, with three commercial breaks – and the president delivered the goods, rapping about Area 51, Hillary Clinton’s email, dentistry, midnight snacking in the White House, Kanye West and the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High, which stars, of course, the guest who followed Obama, Sean Penn.
Hey @RWSurferGirl did you know Obama read one of your Tweets on Jimmy Kimmel? hahaha https://t.co/KVWK27NhFL

Right now Hilary Clinton is hogging the media with her email-gate scandal, but there’s plenty of mean Tweets out there for Potus, who completely cacked up Los Angeles traffic again today in what was dubbed “Obamageddon”. All for fun too, as President Obama was here to appear on Jimmy Kimmel’s Late Night Show.It’s important to remember that Presidents are people too. From time to time, Jimmy Kimmel gives celebrities a chance to read some of the mean things people tweet about them. And tonight, he extended that same courtesy to our Commander in Chief. Please enjoy the all President Obama […] »

Making his first appearance on the show since he became president, Obama did a version of Kimmel’s segment where guests read mean Tweets about themselves (video below). According to a pool report, Obama said that the Tweets were not as mean as “what the Senate says about me.”
In joke about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account, Obama refused to give Kimmel her email address.
As he has done before, Obama joked about birthers, or the belief that he was born in Kenya even though the White House long ago produced a birth certificate to refute it.
When Kimmel asked Obama if he could drive, Obama responded, “I can’t drive. I mean I can, but…”

Enough about the email scandal! We have to talk about Hillary Clinton's latest piece of work making news. Old video of the former Secretary of State has surfaced online from when she appeared as Hillary Gump at the 1995 Gridiron Club Dinner, an annual event held by a prestigious Washington journalist organization. During the light-hearted evening, the then-First Lady appeared in a skit with her husband Bill Clinton where they put a spin on the classic film Forrest Gump. What comes next may just leave you speechless! "The White House is like a box of chocolates," she shared while sitting on the famous bench. "It's pretty on the outside but inside, it's full of »
