The 2017 Emmys Awards ceremony wasted no time getting political during Sunday’s opening segment, as host Stephen Colbert and friends made political jokes within the very first minute — and Colbert quickly accused President Trump of treason. Before his opening song, host Stephen Colbert chatted with Anthony Anderson and Allison Janney, and she complained about the current state of the world. The “Mom” actress mentioned global warming and fighting leaders, and joked that HBO was bringing back “the Confederacy,” a reference to the flap over HBO’s planned new drama series “Confederate.” Moments later, Colbert sang about the virtues of television,
I was loathe to even open the article. The "Emmys" devolved to an unwatchable love fest of brainless LIEberals, patting each other on the back, and trying to be more outlandish than the last, many years ago.
I´ve read that Stephen Colbert is supposed to have a high IQ, but he is so blinded by ideology, he wouldn´t know treason if it bit him in the but...however his constant refrain of Impeach Trump borders on sedition.
Maybe, if someone actually cares enough about him, they could send him the dictionary pages for "treason" and "sedition" along with the portion of the Constitution that delineates our Electoral College and how it works...but most of his audience is just as ignorant of how our government works as he is.
Otherwise, he will just be an ideological idiot spouting inanities for the rest of his worthless life.
Not watching much on TV, but do check in on Lou Dobbs. Books, friends, peace and quiet are my antidote away from the insanity. Thank goodness for Ms. Lucianne and our salon. It is a sane island away from the swamp.
Currently watching a replay of my Bulldawgs thumping of LSU last night. I haven´t watched any of the hollyweird award shows since the days of the Horndog administration. Why would I waste time watching something that insults my intelligence and my political beliefs??
It´s easy, shut off the TV. If half the people in the country did that, the ratings would nosedive and the bigshot liberals who run that industry would have to reassess their offerings before they go bankrupt.
Most people could care less...The cholce of Colbert was a given that his politics would be at the forefront. These so called "award shows" are nothing more than an opportunity for the loaded diaper brigade to pander to their egos, while playing dress up and giving themselves awards for no real reason. Pure waste of time for anyone else..
These people are just destroying their brand, and are not entertaining. No one would ever mistake Colbert with Johnny Carson. You could never tell Carson´s political opinions, but everyone could laugh at his jokes. Colbert is just predictable and boring.
Government lawyers want a federal judge to block the release of memos written by former FBI Director James Comey about his conversations with President Trump, claiming that disclosing the documents would be “detrimental” to an investigation into Russian interference in the presidential campaign as well as an ongoing obstruction of justice probe. The attorneys made the argument in a court filing submitted late Friday in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed for the Comey memos by several news organizations, including The Daily Caller News Foundation, CNN, and USA Today. The lawsuit sought the release of all of
On Friday, Jimmy Kimmel defended his decision not to go after Harvey Weinstein immediately after the scandal broke in an interview with Good Morning America’s Amy Robach, and blamed “gun nuts” for spreading a years-old video of him telling women to grab his crotch, saying it was taken "out of context." Robach interviewed Kimmel after people began calling him out for his alleged hypocrisy for not covering the Weinstein sex scandal on his ABC late night comedy show after having politicized the Las Vegas shooting, and having used his show to speak about the health care debate in recent weeks.
The Washington Post on Friday offered a double dose of creepy as film critic Ann Hornaday called out Harvey Weinstein as a monster, but a monster who made such “important” movies. She also praised a film on the man who created Wonder Woman. It’s a great “love story” about a man, his wife, the other woman and the sex bondage they all loved. To be clear, Hornaday condemned Weinstein for his alleged sexual assaults. But then she went on to praise the man now accused of rape and of exposing himself: “Weinstein’s importance transcended money and power: He allowed an
President Trump delivers the weekly address October 13th with remarks focusing attention on the symbolism of our national flag. (Video) [Transcript] My fellow Americans, Every Fourth of July, we celebrate the day America declared its independence. But this month, let us also remember the day our country won its independence. Next Thursday, October 19, marks the 236th anniversary of the day that George Washington’s Continental Army defeated the British at the Battle of Yorktown in 1781. (Photo) When our young American flag waved that day over the British surrender, it marked more than a victory of American arms. It represented
Erratic winds whipped up flames Saturday, igniting several homes in the town of Sonoma and forcing the evacuations of hundreds of people who, until now, had escaped the terrible wrath of the wildfires that have so far killed 38 people and destroyed 5,700 structures in the Wine Country and beyond. Several homes burned just east of the historic town square in Sonoma as the gusty winds that caused so much havoc earlier this week reappeared before dawn, forcing firefighters to scramble to beat back numerous flare-ups. “There’s a pretty good firefight going on in the field right now,” said Steve
Shocked by the death of a longtime Chicago teacher who was killed by a stray bullet Friday night in Rogers Park, her North Side community looked to honor her memory on Saturday. Cynthia Trevillion, 64, was caught in the crossfire while walking about 6:30 p.m. in the 6900 block of North Glenwood, when someone in a dark-colored SUV opened fire on two juveniles standing on the street near the Morse Red Line CTA station, authorities said. Trevillion was struck in the neck and head, and she died after being taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, according to the Cook
At least 38 people have been killed and hundreds more remain missing as multiple wildfires continue to burn throughout Northern California. Two more people were confirmed dead on Friday as the bodies of 89-year-old Dr. George Chaney and a 79-year-old Edward Stone were recovered from their home in Napa. The Los Angeles Times reported 20 people have died in the Tubbs fire in Sonoma County, eight in Mendocino County, four in Yuba County and six in Napa County. In all, more than 220,000 acres have been scorched since the wildfires broke out on Sunday. (Snip) Adding to the challenge, a
Five hero dogs were honored on Wednesday with medals for their military and law enforcement service. The American Humane Lois Pope K-9 Medal of Courage was presented to five K9s in Washington, D.C., during an awards ceremony that saw members of Congress, media, hill staff, a Marine general, and others come together to show respect for the life-saving work dogs do around the world. The dogs at the ceremony served in the United States Army, Marines, and even the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). They´ve saved lives by uncovering bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as explosives, drugs, and other
Fox and ESPN do not plan to air the national anthem live during this weekend´s and Monday night´s games. The networks don´t usually air the pre-game ritual live except during major events, but began showing it after President Trump lashed out against players who took a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality, CNN reported. Networks did not broadcast the anthem last week, but Vice President Mike Pence pushed the controversy back into the forefront when he left the Indianapolis Colts-San Francisco 49ers game Sunday when several 49ers kneeled during the anthem. Trump has since said he is "proud"
Comic George Lopez was booed off stage at a gala for juvenile diabetes in Denver last week, over an anti-Donald Trump routine that fell flat with the crowd. We’re told the flap began when Trump backer and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei donated $250,000 but requested that Lopez cool it with the anti-Trump jokes at the Carousel Ball. An attendee at the event — where tables sold from $5,000 to $100,000 to benefit the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes — commented on a YouTube video that “George was asked nicely to stop making Trump jokes by a man in front
Robert De Niro is good friends with sexual predator Harvey Weinstein and remained silent after a tsunami of women came forward with rape and sexual abuse accusations towards the producer. De Niro did however, go on a profanity-laced tirade towards President Trump at a charity fundraiser, calling him a low-life. (Photo) New York Daily News reported: “One of my pleasures will be keeping people off my bench who don’t deserve a view of the park like Donald Trump,” he said during a speech. “F–k you, Donald Trump. It’s a horror with this motherf—er.” The “Good Fellas” actor also described the
Chelsea Clinton fled to her car to avoid answering questions from a DailyMail.com reporter on Saturday about whether the Clinton Foundation will return up to $250,000 in donations from accused rapist Harvey Weinstein. The former first daughter, who is a board member of the Clinton Foundation, ran from questions while she was attending a Clinton Global Initiative University event in Northeastern University in Boston. The night before, Clinton Foundation press officials blocked a DailyMail.com reporter attempting to approach Bill Clinton to ask him questions at a public event. (Video/Photo) Bill and Chelsea were at Northeastern University to chair the Clinton
The National Football League announced on Friday that it wants to use its platform to raise awareness for social justice issues and that it does not plan to mandate that players stand for the U.S. national anthem. Commissioner Roger Goodell and the head of the NFL Players Association are expected to meet with team owners this next week in New York, where they will discuss possible solutions on how to end the national anthem protests, Reuters reported. “(Goodell) has a plan that he is going to present to owners about how to use our platform to both raise awareness and
A National Football League (NFL) player says he would rather lose his job than be forced to stand during the national anthem. “No, I will be done playing football,” Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews tweeted Thursday when asked about the issue, according to ESPN. ESPN reported that WSMV producer Matt Parker asked Matthews whether he would stay in the locker room for the song if the NFL created a rule mandating they stand or face punishment. Matthews tweeted out a response before quickly deleting it and hitting the field for the Titans’ Thursday afternoon practice. The player – who is the team’s leading receiver –
Hillary Clinton today falsely called Donald Trump an ´admitted sex assaulter´ and compared him to disgraced alleged sex abuser Harvey Weinstein. The failed Democratic presidential candidate, who received thousands in campaign funding from Weinstein, told the BBC´s Andrew Marr ´we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office.´ (Snip) ´After all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office. ´There has to be a recognition that we must stand against this kind of action that is so sexist and misogynistic.´ And asked about allegations of sexual misconduct levelled at her husband
Porn King Larry Flynt and Hustler Magazine is offering $10 million for information leading to the impeachment of Donald J. Trump as president. Flynt will advertise the offer this weekend in the Washington Post.

This week he upped his offer to $10 million for information that will impeach Trump. (Photo/Tweet) Class act. (Photo/Tweet)
Despite Chicago’s alarming, if select, murder statistics and routine singling out by President Donald Trump for gun violence, this lakeside metropolis was just ranked one of the safest cities in the world. The Economist Intelligence Unit, a London-based research firm affiliated with the Economist magazine, named Chicago to its 2017 Safe Cities Index, issued Thursday — one of only three US cities to crack the top 20 — largely based on advances in digital security. The annual ranking assesses 60 global cities using four factors: personal safety, health security, digital security and the safety of infrastructure. Chicago, at 19th-safest, narrowly trailed the other
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in talks with Columbia University to take on a formal role at the school. Multiple sources on Thursday told the New York Daily News that Clinton, a two-time failed presidential candidate, is also talking with Columbia about housing her archives at the Ivy League institution, the New York Daily News reported. The former law professor may take on the role of "University Professor," which would allow Clinton to lecture in multiple schools and departments without the requirement of a strict course load, a source told the Daily News. With this vague title, Clinton could potentially
No short-term political victory is worth the long-term cultural degradation the president is guaranteeing the GOP. The vast majority of commentary about Donald Trump’s tweets centers on Trump: What do they say about his state of mind? Do they signal a change in American policy? Will he follow through on his threats? Is he a master media manipulator or just angry? Is he playing nine-dimensional chess or is he simply undisciplined and impulsive? I want to focus on another question entirely: What are Trump’s tweets doing to the political character of his Republican supporters? I focus on his tweets because
Former President Barack Obama’s foundation mission is “to inspire and empower people to change their world.” So who better to fire up his audience for democratic change than a man whose family has headed the British state by divine right for the better part of 1,000 years? Royal heartthrob Prince Harry — fifth in line to the British throne, behind his niece, nephew, brother and father — is coming to Chicago on Oct. 31 to “empower participants with tools to create positive change in their communities,” according to the Obama Foundation, which will host Harry at its inaugural summit. While it’s true that
What the president is doing, it´s violent. His actions are violent. He does violence to what we want to do in health care. He does violence to the national debt by what he is adding to it. He does violence to the world, in terms of nuclear proliferation and the environment and our standing in the world, with his frivolity. What we want him to do is to calm down, get used to the job he has, know that his words weigh a ton, and that he really should know what he´s talking about when he says something.
A successful Dallas businessman pledging to spend in the seven figures out of his own bank account to run for governor in 2018 should be a great get for Texas Democrats. Yet the party doesn´t seem to be getting behind Jeffrey Payne, whose business happens to be a gay bar. Payne, owner of gay leather bar The Dallas Eagle and winner of both the international and Texas Mr. Leather competitions in 2009, officially launched his campaign this week saying, "There´s no reason to think that someone who is gay can´t do a job, and here it´s being governor and representing
The Fox News headline sums up the issue at hand: "No Obama documents in Obama library? Historians puzzled by Chicago center plans." The article continues, "The Obama Foundation is taking an unconventional approach to the presidential center and library being planned in Chicago. It´s opting to host a digital archive of President Barack Obama´s records, but not keep his hard-copy manuscripts and letters and other documents onsite." The Chicago Tribune broke the story that, to this point, has attracted no major media attention. Its headline raises much the same question Fox News did: "Without archives on site, how will Obama Center benefit
In an interview with BBC on Friday, Hillary Clinton had choice words for President Donald J. Trump, while ignoring the sins of her husband.The former Democratic nominee condemned the alleged actions by Democratic Hollywood mega-donor Harvey Weinstein in an interview with Andrew Marr. “This kind of behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it´s in entertainment, politics,” Clinton said. “After all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office.”
