A night after late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel laid into Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and his health care proposal, saying Cassidy lied to his face when he said that the bill would pass the “Jimmy Kimmel test,” the comedian took aim at conservatives who spent the day criticizing his previous night’s impassioned monologue. (Snip) And the reason I’m talking about this is because my son had an open heart surgery, has to have two more, and I learned there are kids with no insurance in the same situation. I don’t get anything out of this, Brian, you phony little creep. Oh, I’ll pound you when I see you.” After the audience cheered,
Comments: Talk about a phony creep!! I loathe and hate that filthy hack with every fiber of my being. It´s really something for him to spew his political BS when he knows NOTHING about the plight of every day Americans when he makes millions of dollars a year.. I´m sorry his son has had serious medical issues. My niece went through similar travails. Any sympathy I had for him has greatly diminished. His behavior is rude, disgusting and grossly inappropriate.regarding Killmeade who has been completely honest regarding the disastrous healthcare matters.
Contd. Even if he was forced to apologize we know it would be complete BS. Turning all shows into political orgies is more than outrageous and irritating. Kimmel needs to just shut up and attempt to be funny. Although we know that´s impossible because he isn´t. Johnny Carson had more talent in his little finger than the jerk Kimmel would ever hope to have. I´m sick all these radical leftists and their political lectures!
Hey Kimmel, sorry your kid has a problem, but his biggest problem is you. No, I don´t have to pay for your kid´s problem. I could if you asked nicely, but demanding my taxes to pay for your problem is a non starter. Sorry to say, Kimmel will be producing another child of entitlement who predictably will go bad.
". . . and I learned there are kids with no insurance in the same situation."
That´s so whack! Obamacare made it the law that everybody have insurance (or be penalized) and that no insurer could exclude for pre-existing conditions.
So those kids must be in some other country or here illegally from some other country.
I won´t threaten to ´pound´ you (which sounds like some vaguely homoerotic fantasy of yours, anyway); but I will stop taking your statements at face value, by default. You´re now more in the political demographic than the comedic one.
Kimmel is a millionaire so he can pay for his child´s medical bills on his own. Yet, he wants the American taxpayers to pay for his child´s medical expenses. Typical liberal. Kimmel really went to the dark side. He used to be a smart guy when he was teamed up with Ben Stein on Stein´s quiz program, but then liberalism happened to him.
The Army officer who outed himself as a radical Marxist had been reported back in 2015 for publishing inappropriate and outright anti-American views online, according to a scathing report obtained by The Daily Caller. The report gave exhaustive and damning details on 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone’s disqualifying insubordination at the U.S. Military Academy, extremist political views and out-of-regulations online activity. Still, the Academy’s administration saw fit to allow Rapone to graduate in 2016. Rapone made the news last week for his pro-communism tweets during the #VetsForKaepernick social media craze. West Point’s Public Affairs office quickly released a statement last week
British evolutionary biologist and famed atheist Richard Dawkins sparked outrage on Twitter after he mocked Southern accents and the Second Amendment in the wake of Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas. “Durn tootin’, great shootin’. Cool dude sertin’ he’s 2nd Mendment rahts. Hell yeah!” the 76-year-old tweeted Monday morning. “Every country has its psychopaths. In US they have guns.” The tweet came just hours after a lone gunman opened fire on a crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, killing at least 58 people and injuring more than 515 others attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival. Mr.
A top legal executive at CBS, Hayley Geftman-Gold, said she “is not even sympathetic” for the victims of the shooting at a country music festival at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas Sunday night. “If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing,” wrote Geftman-Gold on Facebook, perhaps referring to Sandy Hook. “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.” (Snip) CBS has a history of hostility towards Republicans. Shortly after the attack on the GOP congressional baseball team gravely injuring Louisiana Rep.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton weighed in on the deadliest mass shooting in US history, claiming Monday morning that there would have been more deaths if the shooter had a “silencer.” “Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer,” Clinton tweeted on Monday, “which the NRA wants to make easier to get.” (Snip) Clinton also called to “put politics aside” and “stand up to the NRA” in the aftermath of the shooting. Hillary Clinton ? @HillaryClinton Replying to @HillaryClinton The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to
Once The Juice is loose, he’ll put the squeeze on TV networks for millions for rights to an exclusive interview, sources close to O.J. Simpson told The Post. “He’s not talking for free,” a longtime confidant told The Post a few days before Simpson’s expected Monday release from High Desert State Prison near Las Vegas. (Snip) The disgraced gridiron great is expected to ask for $3 million to $5 million to sit down with the likes of NBC’s Matt Lauer, Megyn Kelly or Lester Holt; ABC’s Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan; or CBS’ newest “60 Minutes” correspondent Oprah Winfrey, the
The Massachusetts school librarian who rejected Melania Trump´s book donation, saying Dr. Seuss books are ´steeped in racist propaganda´, dressed up as The Cat in the Hat two years ago. A photo of Cambridgeport Elementary School librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro wearing the famous cat costume resurfaced Friday. The caption from the Cambridgeport School Specialists Twitter account revealed she was celebrating Dr. Seuss´s birthday with a ´Green Eggs and Ham´ breakfast. But in her denouncement of Melania´s book donation on the Horn Book blog website, she linked and cited the book ´Is the Cat in the Hat Racist? Read Across America
GOP Senators Roy Blunt and Jerry Moran have introduced legislation which would outsource another 125,000 white-collar jobs to foreigners each year. The outsourcing bill is being pitched as a pro-technology, pro-entrepreneurship bill even though many young and middle-aged Americans in the two Senators’ home states of Missouri and Kansas are already working with technology or as entrepreneurs. The outsourcing bill is dubbed the “Startup Act,” and it closely models prior bills sought by the high-tech sector, where executives and investors are working to raise profits by further reducing the salaries paid to American college graduates and technology experts. If enacted, the bill would
The West Point mentor of a soldier now under investigation by the Army for engaging in political activity while in uniform is on administrative leave, Breitbart News has learned. The adviser is Rasheed Hosein, a professor of Middle East history, who was in charge of Second Lieutenant Spenser Rapone’s development at West Point. (Snip) At West Point, Hosein had mentored Rapone. The two apparently traveled together to India together in 2014 and maintained a close relationship until Rapone graduated in May 2016. Also during that time, Rapone’s Facebook posts grew increasingly radical and leftist. Rapone’s activities caught the attention of command authorities this
Prince Harry reignited his friendship with former US President Barack Obama today as the pair attended a wheelchair basketball match at the Invictus Games in Toronto together. The 33-year-old royal has met the 56-year-old politician on several occasions previously and struck up a warm friendship with him and wife Michelle. Both men were casually dressed at the Pan Am Centre as they took their seats to watch a fast-paced match between the USA and France, all the while chatting enthusiastically, laughing and joking. Although their arrival was unannounced, the high-profile duo was mobbed by a huge crowd as they walked in and
Ben McAdoo and Odell Beckham Jr. are trying to put the dog-peeing celebration in the past, but the wide receiver’s bank account will take notice. Beckham was fined $12,154 by the league Friday for his touchdown celebration Sunday against the Eagles. It is the standard amount for a first offense of unsportsmanlike conduct. Earlier Friday, McAdoo said Beckham has not been caught up in all the distractions that have come with his act. “He seems dialed in and focused on his preparation,” McAdoo said.
Analysts and conservatives believe a Democrat-led plan to propose a ban on gas-powered cars in California later this year is a pie-in-the-sky scheme that ignores important factors about the state’s auto industry. Assemblyman Phil Ting plans to introduce a bill in January that would ban the sale of gas-powered cars produced after 2040. The Democratic lawmaker said California drivers must adopt electric vehicles if the state is going to reduce greenhouse gas emissions – but some are scoffing at the push. “The market is moving this way. The entire world is moving this way. At some point you need to set a
With every early morning tweet about North Korea, every new scoop related to the Russia scandal and every businessman who gets hired (then fired) from the White House, Barack Obama looks just a little bit better than President Donald Trump. Fifty-two percent of respondents to a Public Policy Polling survey released Thursday said they wished Obama was still leading the U.S., compared to 41 percent who said they preferred having Trump in office. The Obama fandom was dominated by voters who supported Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, but they weren´t alone.
I have never understood the conservative fetish for the Second Amendment. From a law-and-order standpoint, more guns means more murder. “States with higher rates of gun ownership had disproportionately large numbers of deaths from firearm-related homicides,” noted one exhaustive 2013 study in the American Journal of Public Health. From a personal-safety standpoint, more guns means less safety. The F.B.I. counted a total of 268 “justifiable homicides” by private citizens involving firearms in 2015; that is, felons killed in the course of committing a felony. Yet that same year, there were 489 “unintentional firearms deaths” in the United States, according to
Singer Nancy Sinatra on Thursday called for members of the National Rifle Association to be killed by firing squad.Sinatra—the daughter of legendary crooner Frank Sinatra—shared the sentiment on Twitter following the murder of 59 people in Las Vegas by a mass shooter over the weekend. The murderous members of the NRA should face a firing squad. https://t.co/5ceuMvk5Tl — Nancy Sinatra (@NancySinatra) October 3, 2017. In response to criticism, Sinatra clarified that she did not mean all gun owners, just NRA members.

Michelle Obama believes the 42 percent of women and 53 percent of white women who voted against Hillary Clinton only did so because someone—presumably our patriarchs—told us to. “Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their [sic] own voice,” the former first lady declared, speaking at a conference in Boston. Believe it or not, the pomposity only got worse from there. “What does it mean for us as women that we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, that guy, he’s better for me, his voice is more true to me,” Obama said.
The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, strongly denounced Donald Trump Tuesday night after the president visited the island, calling him the “miscommunicator in chief” and “insulting.” “He was insulting to the people of Puerto Rico,” Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz said Tuesday night on MSNBC hours after meeting Trump face-to-face at a briefing with Puerto Rican leaders and the president. Beyond the briefing, Trump also toured damaged areas and helped distribute supplies, flicking paper towels into a crowd with the motion of a jump shot in basketball. All of it, Cruz said, was disingenuous. “This was a PR, 17-minute meeting.
In the wake of the horrific tragedy in Las Vegas, celebrities have decided to use death as a stump for their activism. And of course, who better to lead the way than professional protester Michael Moore. Moore is not backing down on Trump. He told anchor Amy Goodman on Democracy Now!, “We have got to get rid of Trump.” Even in the case of war with North Korea, Moore wanted only to “get rid of” Trump. He said, “We are in the French Resistance.” So America is now occupied by Nazis? He continued, “Don’t even stop to think. If Trump
The CBS legal executive who was fired for posting on Facebook that she had no sympathy for Las Vegas shooting victims because they were “country music fans” told the NYPD she’s being harassed online, officers said Wednesday. Hayley Geftman-Gold posted Monday about the massacre a day earlier. “If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Republicans will ever do the right thing,” she wrote. “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.” She told cops that the post went viral shortly after she wrote the words. She then
Hillary Clinton said she’ll “keep speaking out” for gun control Wednesday on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Clinton lamented Congressional inaction on gun control, saying, “I can’t believe that one whole political party in the greatest country on Earth is totally sold to the gun lobby and will do whatever they are ordered to do, despite the loss of life.” The former Democratic presidential candidate criticized the fact that one of President Trump’s first actions on guns was to repeal Barack Obama’s Social Security gun ban and she claimed that the repeal allows people with mental problems to purchase
Interior Department manager Joel Clement figured his new bosses in the Trump administration might disapprove of his climate-change-focused work protecting Alaskan villages from rising seas. But the reassignment slip Clement received in June stunned him. He was not only removed from his post as director of policy analysis, he was deposited into a new job auditing fossil fuel company leases. Approximately 50 such slips went out to the department’s most experienced and highly paid managers. (Snip) It seemed to them that they were getting moved for the sake of getting moved — often to jobs unrelated to their skills.
Tuesday at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women, former first lady Michelle Obama said when she attended the State of the Union address she would notice the Republican side was “all men, all white,” and that was why she argued many people of color “don’t trust politics.” Speaking about diversity, Obama said, “We should be working actively to mix it up, so we’re getting a real broad range of perspectives on every issue. Shoot, I would see that in Congress.” She explained, “At the State of the Union address … when you are in the room what you can see is
Should House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell be repealed and replaced? The argument for their ouster, repeated ad nauseam, is that Republicans now control both houses of Congress, so how come the leaders won’t deliver for their Republican president? But are these attacks reasonable? Why has Mr. Ryan, for instance, come in for such sustained assaults by many on the right when the chamber he controls has delivered on significant fronts for both President Trump and conservatives generally, including — but not limited to — defense, health care, financial regulation and immigration?
Pretty soon, it could be NFL team owners on their knees begging TV viewers to come back. Once again in Week 4 of the 2017 season, as players continued their sitting-kneeling protests against something, former fans silently exercised their right of free speech using TV remotes. Despite the always insightful, candid commentary of Jon Gruden, this week’s Monday Night game on ESPN lost audience again. It was actually a pretty good game, by all accounts. [Snip] This game though drew 13% fewer viewers than last week. And the drop was worse — 16% — in the key demo that ad
