Rowling.   It began on February 11th when Morgan tweeted to Rowling that he’d never read her “drivel” after Rowling initially tweeted to him “If only you’d read Harry Potter, you’d know the downside of sucking up to

11 February 2017 1:23 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

From the studio that brought you “The Monster” and “The Witch,” comes an even scarier horror film than any other: “Breitbart.”

A24 released a fake trailer for its new “avant-garde horror thriller,” which actually is a video that pokes fun at the disastrous White House interview between Breitbart News journalist Charlie Spiering and Trump press secretary Sean Spicer about Trump’s travel ban.

The video begins with the two suited men sitting awkwardly at a table and waiting for the cameras to start rolling. Then the cringe-worthy interview begins with Spiering introducing Spicer, who looks less-than-thrilled to be there.

The trailer includes the unforgettable moment of awkward silence, the strange camera angles and adds spooky sound effects to give this painful interview an entertaining twist. Check it out below.

Watch Jim Jefferies Blast Piers Morgan for Defending Trump on ‘Real Time’: ‘F— Off’

Australian comedian Jim Jefferies flipped Piers Morgan the bird and told him to “f— off” on Friday’s episode of Bill Maher’s “Real Time.” The topic of conversation was, of course, President Donald Trump.

The conversation started with Maher posing a pointed question: “The people who said, during the campaign, that Hillary Clinton was the lesser of two evils — could we get the apology right now?”

“Why?” Morgan asked. Maher responded by listing his reasons, among them, Trump’s infamous executive order on immigration.

“There is no Muslim ban,” Morgan said resolutely, which got Jefferies worked up.

“Oh, f— off,” Jefferies said. “Hitler didn’t kill the Jews on the first day. He worked up to it.”

Morgan responded, “That is the exact ridiculous, hysterical, over-the-top nonsense… He’s not the new Hitler.”

Jefferies then took a shot at Morgan, who won Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2008. “You just like that you won ‘The Apprentice’ and »

11 February 2017 2:43 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Things got a little heated on Real Time with Bill Maher last night.  So heated in fact that even Bill Maher was silent for the testy exchange.   The subject that was brought up was of course Donald Trump.   Australian comedian Jim Jefferies blasted Piers Morgan for championing President Donald Trump and needless to say it got a little uncomfortable.  Jefferies used explicit terms after the British TV personality took issue with Trump’s controversial travel ban being called “a Muslim ban.” Piers Morgan responded by accusing Jefferies of overreacting and continuing to whip up hysteria.  But Jefferies didn’t let it go.
