Barbara Bush Will Be Buried Near Her Daughter Robin, Who Predeceased Her by 64 Years

You likely know some of late First Lady Barbara Bush's children already — George W. Bush became the 43rd Potus, following in his father's footsteps, and Jeb Bush was a Florida governor and a presidential candidate. You might even know her and George H.W. Bush's other living children — Neil Bush, Marvin Bush, and Dorothy Bush Koch. But we never got to know their daughter Robin Bush, who predeceased her mother by nearly 65 years. So, how did Barbara and George's daughter die? Read on for more details. Robin was Barbara and George's second child, born on Dec. 20, 1949. She died at age three of leukemia in 1953, the same year she was diagnosed with the disease. "[The doctor] said, 'You don't do anything. She's going to die,'" Barbara — who passed away on April 17 at age 92 — once told granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager in a 2012 Today interview. "She said, 'My advice is, take her home, love her.

‘Acorn and the Firestorm’ Review: A Convincing Look at the Scandal that Sparked the Trump Era

Remember Acorn? Founded in 1970 as a grassroots advocacy group dedicated to supporting low and middle-income Americans in all manner of social issues, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now was only dissolved in 2010, but it might as well have been a million years ago. Of course, that acronym hasn’t lost any of its flavor for the millions of people it helped to defend against the likes of predatory lending and unlivable wages, or for any of the right-wing media types who feverishly smeared and entrapped the consortium as part of their efforts to disenfranchise voters and discredit liberal causes.

If all of this feels like ancient history, that’s probably because it went down prior to the Age of Trump, when something like the Acorn scandal might barely crack the evening news. And yet, Reuben Atlas and Sam Pollard’s convincing but unfocused documentary “Acorn and the Firestorm

Little Big Town To Be Honored At GRAMMYs On The Hill Awards

On April 18, the Recording Academy will celebrate 20 years of advocacy in Washington, D.C., by honoring Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet, and Jimi Westbrook of three-time Grammy winners Little Big Town at the annual GRAMMYs on the Hill Awards.

Little Big Town’s contributions to the music industry align with some of the Recording Academy’s key advocacy and organizational causes, including advocating for music education and supporting MusiCares, a charity founded by the Academy that provides a safety net of support for the music community. The evening will also feature a performance by the band.

Uniting the worlds of music and politics, GRAMMYs on the Hill also recognizes legislators who have improved the environment for music by advocating for music creators’ rights. The 2018 congressional honorees are Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.), a long-time champion of music creators, and Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), author of the songwriter-focused Music Modernization Act (H.

Emmys 2018: Will Michael Stuhlbarg be redeemed after Oscar snub with an Emmy bid for ‘The Looming Tower’?

Emmys 2018: Will Michael Stuhlbarg be redeemed after Oscar snub with an Emmy bid for ‘The Looming Tower’?
Will Michael Stuhlbarg earn his first career Emmy nomination for “The Looming Tower”? He co-stars in the Hulu limited series as Richard Clarke, the real life chief counter-terrorism adviser on the National Security Council in the years leading up to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. This role follows an awards season in which the actor achieved the rare feat of appearing in three Best Picture nominees: “Call Me by Your Name,” “The Post” and the eventual winner “The Shape of Water.” But Stuhlbarg himself wasn’t nominated. Emmy voters may want to make it up to him.

It’s perhaps surprising that Stuhlbarg hasn’t been nominated for an Oscar yet given his roles in numerous Oscar contending films including “A Serious Man” (2009), “Hugo” (2011), “Lincoln” (2012), “Blue Jasmine” (2013) and “Arrival” (2016), in addition to his three nominated films from 2017. But you might say the same thing about the Emmys. Stuhlbarg spent four

Colbert Confronts Omarosa About Her Allegiance to Trump — Watch the Extremely Awkward Interview
Omarosa appeared on Wednesday’s edition of The Late Show, where she opened up to host Stephen Colbert about comments she made regarding President Donald Trump during her time on Celebrity Big Brother.

The reality-tv star, who went on to serve as an aide to the Trump administration, made headlines when she told fellow Bb houseguest Ross Mathews that the country was “not going to be Ok” under the leadership of her former Apprentice boss. Speaking to Colbert, she walked back that sentiment and instead applied it only to Trump’s immigration policy.

Bristol Palin: A Life of Ups and Downs in the Spotlight

Bristol Palin: A Life of Ups and Downs in the Spotlight
With her recent marriage, we’re taking a look back at the ups and downs in the life of Bristol Palin: reality star, mom and daughter of politician Sarah Palin.

August-september 2008

Palin rises to the spotlight when her mother, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, was named as John McCain’s vice presidential pick. However, she received more attention than the average prospective vice presidential child when it was announced, just days after her mother’s addition to the ticket was revealed, that 17-year-old Bristol was pregnant. Her pregnancy sparked controversy due to her mother’s stance on abstinence-only sex education.

Can You Make It Through These Talk Show Moments Without Crying?
We all need a good cry sometimes. The only difference? Most of us can do so in the privacy of our own homes without having our crying faces projected on the small screen for all to see — unlike celebrities.

Through the years, stars like Fergie, Bradley Cooper and Pharrell Williams have choked up during their talk show appearances — and their hosts aren’t immune to tearing up either — causing us to ugly-cry all the way through.

Keep scrolling to view a handful of those moments. Warning: You may want to stock up on tissues before pressing play.

‘Our Cartoon President’ Review: Showtime’s Lame Trump Cartoon Turns Donald Into a Dumb Sitcom Dad

‘Our Cartoon President’ Review: Showtime’s Lame Trump Cartoon Turns Donald Into a Dumb Sitcom Dad
“Our Cartoon President’ is a lie worthy of America’s most dangerous liar, but far less deserving of the comparable attention it’s likely to receive. For one, it’s absolutely part of the same problem it pretends to be above: humanizing a man who tells us all we need to know about him every time he speaks or tweets (freely, rather than reading from a speech). Much like the Cheeto-in-Chief himself, Showtime’s edgeless animated comedy pays lip service to its most troubling issue before dodging the problem in favor of inane gibberish. “Some are worried this show might humanize me,” the animated President Trump says in the opening to Episode 1. “Well, too late, folks. After my recent physical, Dr. Ronny assured me that I am a human being and there’s no cure for that.”

Setting aside the argument that it’s never too late to humanize a dangerous man (if,
