After Donald Trump compared Spicer's ratings to a daytime drama, Colbert reimagined Spicer in a hilarious new CBS daytime drama. The clip begins with a voiceover saying, "In response to whether he would fire Sean Spicer, President Trump likened him to a daytime soap opera, noting proudly that his press secretary… »
Moran died on Saturday at the age of 56. Officials tell Et that her death was likely due to complications from Stage 4 cancer.
However, before the actress' cause of death had been announced, Baio appeared on The Bernie & Sid Show, where he insinuated that the actress died as a result of past substance abuse issues.
"For me, you do drugs or drink, you're gonna die," Baio said during the radio interview. "I'm sorry if that's cold, but God gave you a brain, gave you the will to live and thrive and you gotta take care of yourself."
Baio immediately took heat for his comments, especially after the news of Moran's cancer battle came to light.
Ted Cruz has the perfect solution on how to pay for Donald Trump's border wall ... pass a law to use El Chapo's billions and loot from other lords to underwrite construction. The Texas senator introduced a new bill Tuesday called the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act -- aka the El Chapo Act ... which does just that. The bill would allow the U.S. to use all cash forfeited by »

[[tmz:video id="0_86h4dvne"]] Scott Baio thinks much of the backlash he's gotten for his comments about Erin Moran's drug issues is driven by his ties to Donald Trump. Scott told us liberals have been attacking him for linking his former co-star's death to a drug overdose during a radio interview -- but says his haters' political biases are seeping through. The attacks don't appear to faze him though. Although it turns out Erin died from cancer -- »

Many Americans feel the media industry suffers from liberal bias and a new Politico study might have determined why, as most working members of the media live in areas that voted for Hillary Clinton. Politico’s Tucker Doherty examined labor statistics and cross-referenced them against voting patterns and Census data. The study was designed to figure out what the American media landscape looks like, and how much it has changed in recent years. The results prove that 72 percent of new jobs in media are in counties that Clinton won on Election Day. When Donald Trump upset Clinton on Election Day, »

When it comes to big displays to stop the passage of a bill, the filibuster is often the go-to for many politicians.
But to protest a Texas House bill targeting sanctuary cities, Texas State Representative Victoria Neave is trying something different: a hunger strike.
Neave, a Democrat who represents areas in Dallas, Mesquite and Garland, Texas, hasn’t eaten since she received Holy Communion while attending Mass this past Sunday at Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Dallas. Her decision to go on a four-day hunger strike came in a moment of desperation, as she sought comfort — and »

Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert zeroed in on President Trump’s first 100 days in office last night in late-night. "The first 100 days are traditionally a time to reflect on accomplishments of a president, and Trump hasn't got a lot of those," Colbert said. "He still hasn't filled his cabinet; he didn't repeal Obamacare; there are still Muslims." On Late Night, Meyers’ take was, "If this were a movie, it would be called 100 Dayz and Confused." Let’s just say, in academic… »
Following criticism over ethical concerns, a State Department website has removed a blog post that trumpets President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. The blog post, initially posted on ShareAmerica, a State Department platform used for sharing what it describes as “compelling stories,” detailed the history of Trump’s “Winter White House” ahead of Trump’s April 6 meeting there with Chinese President Xi Jinping. The State Department issued a statement Monday apologizing for “any misperception.” “The intention of the article was to inform the public about where the President has been hosting world leaders,” the web page now reads. “We regret any misperception and. »

On a frigid February day in Toronto, the parka-clad crew of “The Handmaid’s Tale” is trying to keep the flowers from dying.
The outwardly demure Handmaid Offred (Elisabeth Moss), clad in her red robe and white hat, is visiting an outdoor market. The wind is knocking down parts of the set and the frosty environment is threatening to kill off the lilies, which are periodically sheltered in a warm van.
Moss, who is number one on the call sheet of the Hulu drama, has bought donuts for the cast and crew in an effort to lift spirits on this chilly Monday.
“I learned from Jon [Hamm] on ‘Mad Men’ that you do have a responsibility as number one to not only be professional, but to be as positive as you can,” Moss says. Hence the treats for the crew, most of whom had also worked all day Sunday.
It’s a big commitment to take on the »

I have sympathy for anyone in a floundering, long-lead industry - whose desperation to improve matters is kept at actionable arm's length by the exigencies of the production cycle. But did Marvel Comics seriously look at the election of Donald Trump and think to itself, gee, I guess we'd better get his 46% reading our comics, too? Marvel spent the better part of the last five years demonstrating in no uncertain terms that diversity and representation in comics could drive great storytelling and great sales. It added new characters to the pantheon (Ms. Marvel), refreshed old ones with blockbuster results (Black Panther), and transformed others into new incarnations that deserve to set the standard for those franchises going forward (Thor). But the fiasco, last fall,...

News came out yesterday that Donald Trump is the least popular President of all-time through his first 100 days in office. That’s right, of all-time. Naturally Donald Trump was fuming at this news and made a zillion excuses as usual about the “fake news.” But rather than harp on the “unpopular” stuff let’s try and focus on exactly what Donald Trump has in fact accomplished in his first 100 days with the new administration. Luckily Stephen Colbert was there to assist us with many of the facts. Don’t worry, I’m sure that John Oliver is going to tear it up

Talk about strange bedfellows. In a rare show of unity with President Donald Trump, the American Civil Liberties Union agrees with the chief executive’s argument that he had a First Amendment right to yell “Get ‘em out of here!” at his campaign rallies last year even if protesters ended up “manhandled by the crowd.” “There is no question that Trump’s decision to use his bully pulpit to actually bully protesters and to rile up his crowds against them is morally despicable,” Lee Rowland, senior staff attorney at the Aclu’s Speech, Privacy and Technology Project, wrote in her »

No matter what, Ivanka Trump always maintains her poise. During her first international trip as an official representative of the United States in Berlin Tuesday, she fielded a series of tough questions. Miriam Meckel first asked her to define her role in President Donald Trump's administration, then to defend his feelings towards women. Miriam, editor-in-chief of WirtschaftsWoche, moderated a panel discussion during the W20 Summit. Ivanka sat on stage next to Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund; Queen Maxima of the Netherlands also participated. At the beginning of the Q&A, Miriam asked Ivanka about her position. "You're the first daughter of the United »
President Donald Trump, who has himself faced several charges of anti-Semitic intent, vowed to “confront anti-Semitism” and “stamp out prejudice” in his keynote address at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Days of Remembrance ceremony on Tuesday morning.
“This is my pledge to you: We will confront anti-Semitism,” Trump told Holocaust survivors and others in attendance at the memorial event on Capitol Hill. “We will stamp out prejudice, we will condemn hatred, we will bear witness and we will act.”
“Those who deny the Holocaust are an accomplice to this horrible evil, and we’ll never be silent. We just won’t, »

The State Department has removed an article on its website that promoted President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Florida.
A blog post on Share America, a website run by the U.S. Department of State, referred to the resort as “the winter White House.” The post delved into the history of the site and highlights Trump’s presidential activity at the estate.
But the post was removed Monday after members of the public questioned why the government department was promoting Trump’s business ventures. A statement issued by the State Department apologized for “any misperception.”

“The Tonight Show” still hasn’t reclaimed the total-viewer crown that Jimmy Fallon previously wore for so long, but NBC’s late-night program just delivered its largest key demo TV ratings win since before President Trump’s inauguration last November. The 11:35 p.m. late-night show topped its CBS competition among adults 18-49 by 42 percent last week, with a 0.64 versus Stephen Colbert’s 0.45 average. That margin is the biggest in Fallon’s favor since the week of January 9-13. Older-skewing CBS might counter that they focus more on the 25-54 demo, but “Tonight” won that one too. It also cleaned up among millennials, »

“The first 100 days are traditionally a time to reflect on accomplishments of a president, and Trump hasn’t got a lot of those,” Colbert said on CBS' Late Show. “He still hasn’t filled his Cabinet; he didn’t repeal Obamacare; there are still Muslims.”
