Samantha Bee's Full Frontal released the extended version of Will Ferrell's riotous speech as former President George W. Bush from their "Not the White House Correspondents Dinner" special, which aired last month.
In the extended version, Ferrell's Dubya talks up his presidency's rosy new tint in light of President Trump's already disastrous tenure. "I needed eight years, a catastrophic flood, a war built on a lie, an economic disaster – the new guy needed 100 days," "Bush" drawled. "He's now widely considered the worst president of all time; I come in second. »

As if summoned by “Saturday Night Live,” Kellyanne Conway is back in the spotlight. The counselor to President Donald Trump was caught up in a viral moment when Anderson Cooper let slip an exasperated eye roll in response to one of Conway’s comments while discussing Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” Tuesday evening.
Conway seized the moment on Thursday morning’s “Fox & Friends,” and came with a monologue prepared to explain why, to her, Cooper’s actions were sexist.
“[Cooper] had me sit through a bunch of tapes showing then candidate Trump commending Jim Comey about Hillary Clinton’s emails, talking about him etc. And the fact is that they showed all these clips and it showed candidate Trump in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and I said ‘Hey, thanks for the trip down memory lane and talked about winning Michigan,’ and »

This time last year, President Obama joked about the election, bid the Washington press adieu, and finally dropped the mic at his last White House Correspondents Dinner in office. Too bad nothing of major political significance has gone down since then and nobody will have anything to talk about this year, right?
Just kidding! American politics are utter chaos right now! That can be distressing to a lot of people on a day-to-day basis, but this weekend, there’s an opportunity for you to try to just enjoy it: The annual mutual roasting of the Washington media and the politicians »

Embattled Fox News was hit with lawsuits over alleged racial discrimination on Tuesday, including a class action suit in which former “Fox and Friends” co-host Kelly Wright was among the plaintiffs, according to documents obtained by TheWrap. Wright was one of 11 former or current Fox News employees attached to a class action suit filed in Bronx Supreme Court accusing the leading cable news network of fostering an environment in which top-down racial harassment occurred, joining three other former Fox News staffers who filed a separate racial discrimination complaint. “When it comes to racial discrimination, 21st Century Fox has been operating as if. »

When Gretchen Carlson makes her way through the streets of Manhattan, she notices flickers of recognition. But many New Yorkers don’t want a selfie or an autograph — they simply want to express their gratitude. “Even if I’m on the phone, they’ll just say ‘Thank you,’” Carlson says, on a recent afternoon, mouthing those two words. “A lot of people who have come up to me at restaurants — men — and have said, ‘I want to shake your hand, because I have daughters.’”
Carlson, a former anchor at Fox News, became the center of a media firestorm in July when she filed a bombshell sexual-harassment lawsuit against her boss, Roger Ailes, after he fired her. “I jumped off a cliff by myself,” Carlson says, describing the moment when everything changed. “And I had no expectations or idea what would happen.”
In the chaotic days that followed, Fox News talent quickly banded together to discredit Carlson, including »

To all you ladies and men out there who are about to get into the spring cleaning swing of things, I have a question to ask of both of you. For all the women out there, when you are thinking about all the spring cleaning you have to do, do you imagine yourself cleaning while wearing a tight dress, being completely made up, and wearing heels? No, I didn’t think so. Men, while you’re out there cleaning up all of the remnants of winter, are you doing this while wearing a suit, tie, and super uncomfortable dress shoes? Didn’t think

President Trump is skipping this year’s White House Correspondents Association dinner because he feels mistreated by the media. That’s what the Commander-in-Chief told Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning in a sit-down interview at the White House in advance of his 9 p.m. Et address to Congress tonight.
“I am not a hypocrite. I haven’t been treated properly,” Trump said of media coverage of the first few weeks of his presidency. Trump will be the first sitting President to miss the annual dinner since Ronald Reagan in 1981 when he was recuperating after being shot by John Hinckley Jr.
“In light of the fact of fake news and all of the other things we’re talking about, I thought it would be inappropriate,” Trump told the anchor trio of Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade. “I have great respect for the press. I have great respect for reporters and the profession. I »

“Do you stand with them or with House Leader Nancy Pelosi who believes impeachment talk is premature?” she asked.
Ellison replied that the president “has already done a number »

In what I would assume an attempt to deflect any attention off of the fact that your former National Security Council head was in kahootz with Russia, Donald Trump has taken the low road by calling news networks MSNBC and CNN “unwatchable.” He also says that “Fox and Friends” is great. Again folks, I wish I were making this stuff up but I’m not. I’m truly not. We have a President who acts exactly like my 4-year-old son when he’s watching cartoons. If I turn off said cartoon, no matter what’s on TV he says he doesn’t like it. Why?
