The sudden departure of Anthony Scaramucci from the White House staff threw America for a loop — perhaps no one more so than conservative commentary site The Federalist, which just published an opinion piece by senior contributor David Marcus titled, “Why Anthony Scaramucci Is The Man Trump And America Need.” The post went up roughly six hours before the White House communications director was fired after holding the position for only ten days, following Sean Spicer’s exit. In the article, Marcus argued that Scaramucci’s hire was a crushing blow against establishment Republicans, like Newt Gingrich and recently-ousted Wh Chief of Staff. »

President Donald Trump voiced his support for Republican candidate Karen Handel in the Georgia special election — but he couldn’t get a handle on how to spell her name.
Trump, 70, took to Twitter Monday to encourage voters to elect Handel in the race for the Georgia 6th Congressional District.
“Karen Handle’s opponent in #GA06 can’t even vote in the district he wants to represent….” the commander-in-chief wrote, incorrectly spelling the candidate’s surname.
Minutes later, he deleted the tweet and posted a new one with the correct spelling.

The mass incarceration crisis for people of color. The revolution in understanding gender identity.
DuVernay earned an Oscar nomination and a slew of other plaudits for her study of discrimination in criminal justice and prisons in “13th,” which premiered on Netflix in September. Couric offered a sensitive and revealing look at the new thinking about gender identity in National Geographic TV’s “Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric,” which bowed in February and will be expanded to a multi-part series.
DuVernay and Couric sat down with Variety to talk about the determination and the curiosity that led them to tackle their respective docs, the craftsmanship that goes into exploring complicated subjects and the public’s new-found interest in heady non-fiction storytelling.
“Gender Revolution” and “13th” both take on very far-reaching subjects. How »

Jimmy Kimmel thanked fans and donors for their outpouring of support after making an emotional defense of the pre-ahca health care system following his newborn son's open heart surgery. He also addressed his many detractors quipping, "I would like to apologize for saying that children in America should have health care, it was insensitive. It was offensive and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me."
Kimmel had some sharp words for critics like Newt Gingrich and happily showcased the backlash against Republican congressmen, like Raúl Labrador, »
Kimmel, of course, recently made headlines for his emotional May 1 monologue, in which he detailed his son’s congenital heart condition and made a plea for bipartisan collaboration on health care — a speech that wasn’t well-received by some conservatives.
“I cannot count the number of times I’ve been called an out-of-touch, Hollywood elitist creep this week, »
Upon his return from paternity leave caring for newborn son Billy, Jimmy Kimmel had a lot to say Monday night — and not all of it was nice. Along with calling out critics in the media who had dubbed him “an out of touch Hollywood elitist creep,” the ABC late-night host targeted Newt Gingrich for criticizing his healthcare plea in the wake of his son’s emergency heart surgery. “There are some very sick and sad people out there,” Kimmel said. “Here’s one of them — his name is Newt Gingrich. He’s the former Speaker of the House.” Also Read: »

During his first show back from paternity leave, Jimmy Kimmel fired back at a few politicians (namely, Newt Gingrich) regarding his emotional monologue about his newborn son Billy‘s open heart surgery and the Gop’s recent healthcare repeal.
“One week ago tonight, I made an emotional speech -– that was seen by millions -– and as a result of my powerful words, Republicans in Congress had second thoughts about repeal and replace, they realized that what is right is right -– and I saved health insurance in America!” Kimmel, 49, said during Monday’s opening monologue. “Oh, I didn’t? »

A week after making headlines with an impassioned healthcare argument, invoking his newborn son who recently underwent open-heart surgery, Jimmy Kimmel returned to his show Monday night, providing an update on his family and commenting on the Gop’s recent healthcare vote.
“One week ago tonight, I made an emotional speech -– that was seen by millions -– and as a result of my powerful words, Republicans in Congress had second thoughts about repeal and replace, they realized that what is right is right -– and I saved health insurance in America!
“Oh, I didn’t? They voted against it anyway? I really need to pay more attention to the news,” he said, according to a transcript obtained by Variety.
Kimmel took time to say that his son, Billy, is “doing very well,” eating, sleeping, and getting bigger. He also thanked those who made donations to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles since his speech, but »

Betsy DeVos‘ appointment as education secretary was a controversial one, with the wealthy Gop donor confirmed to the position by the Senate on Tuesday in a 51-50 vote — pushed in her favor by Vice President Mike Pence, who cast the historic, tie-breaking ballot.
But despite outrage from celebrities and Democratic politicians, DeVos is ready to get to work.
The 59-year-old mother of four tweeted a photo of herself in her office late Tuesday night, writing, “Day 1 on the job is done, but we’re only getting started.”
“Now where do I find the pencils?” she added, with a smile face. »

The reaction to Betsy DeVos‘ confirmation as education secretary on Tuesday was fast and mostly furious, with celebrities and Democratic politicians unleashing outrage on social media, and a sprinkling of supporters — including President Donald Trump and Jeb Bush — congratulating DeVos on her narrow win.
Despite a rare, all-night protest by Senate Democrats on Monday night that carried into Tuesday morning, DeVos was confirmed by Senate in a 51-50 vote, with Vice President Mike Pence casting a historic, tie-breaking ballot.
DeVos, a wealthy Gop donor, has been widely criticized for weeks for her multiple conflicts of interest and her apparent lack knowledge of basic education policy. »

Ava DuVernay’s latest film, the Oscar-nominated documentary “13th,” was always meant to be readily available to a large section of movie lovers, thanks to the filmmaker’s free-wheeling production and distribution deal with streaming giant Netflix. Billed as something as a “secret” film, the Netflix deal allowed the “Selma” helmer to make her feature-length look at the American prison system with minimal intrusion over the course of nearly two years.
The documentary, which succinctly explains the links between systematic racism and America’s swelling prison system, was kept mostly under wraps until it was announced as the opening night film at the 2016 New York Film Festival, making it the first documentary to ever earn the distinction.
Just three months after that splashy bow, “13th” is an Oscar nominee for best documentary feature and, yes, is currently streaming on Netflix. But DuVernay and Netflix’s unique partnership has not stopped there, »
