Jimmy Kimmel Calls Out Donald Trump Over Florida School Shooting (watch!)

Jimmy Kimmel goes right to the source of the problem in the Florida school shooting. Simply it’s President Trump, who has failed once again to do anything more than offer condolences after 14 students were murdered and more than 50 wounded by a loner with an assault rifle. While Fox News talking-heads, right-wing propaganda sites and Russian twitter trolls want to turn schools into quasi-prisons, the real bear in the room as always is guns....

Right-Wing Darling Scott Baio, Steve Wynn Drag GOP Into Hollywood Sex Scandals

Right-Wing darling Scott Baio and Casino mogul Steve Wynn have tarred Republicans with the Hollywood sex scandal. Fox News had made hay out of the scandal as a symbol of Democratic hypocrisy because of Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein was a big-bucks supporter of Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, until he was exposed as a serial sexual abuser and harasser. Wynn was an even bigger donor to Republicans and also served as finance chairman for the Republican National Committee. He was forced to resign in disgrace in the wake of dozens of complaints about sexual abuse and harassment....

Jimmy Fallon Emerges From Mist as Donald Trump in Hilarious Skit (see!)

Jimmy Fallon did a hilarious take on Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention last night on the “Tonight Show.” He emerged from the mist on stage just like the Donald, with a little Michael Jackson thrown in. Fallon has been doing spot-on Trump impersonations throughout the campaign. In fact, he’s become the Tina Fey of Trump impersonators. He captures The Donald’s essence as well as Fey’s Sarah Palin. ...

Stephen Colbert Goes Deep Off Grid to Find Jon Stewart for Late Show (see!)

Stephen Colbert traveled deep “off grid” to dig up Jon Stewart last night on the “Late Show.” Colbert was looking for someone to explain how Trump became the Republican presidential nominee. “That guy?” Stewart exclaimed.

Ted Cruz Tries to Show He’s Likeable on Tonight Show; Fails Miserably (see!)

Ted Cruz, the closest thing to a sociopath in high office since President Richard Nixon, did his best to show he’s really a likeable guy on the “Tonight Show” last night. But his smarmy personality got the best of him when Jimmy Fallon revealed he’s been running for president since high school. What kind of a guy lays out a detailed plan to attend Princeton University, earn a law degree from Harvard, enter politics, then run for President of the United States? ...

Donald Trump Too Ungodly for Iowa GOP Voters; Will Ted Cruz Sink Party?

Donald Trump proved to be too ungodly for Iowa’s Republican caucus voters. Evangelicals lined up for Ted Cruz and handed him the victory in the Midwestern state. But Trump’s defeat sends up red flags about the Republican Party’s ability to win the general election. Cruz may play well with conservative and religious Midwestern voters, but among all the Republican candidates, he has the least ability to attract cross-over voters. He’ll need them to win in November....

Donald Trump, the Chief Alienator, Promises to Ease Up on Rivals (watch!)

Jeb Bush, GOP Candidates Launch War Mongering, Anti-ISIS Ads (video)

Jeb Bush and other Republican presidential candidates are following the lead of big money GOP political action committees (PAC). They’ve unleashed a torrent of campaign ads capitalizing on the Paris terror attacks. Will war mongering and anti-ISIS sentiment work? The ads all play off the theme of “leadership” and attack President Obama’s handling of the rise of ISIS in the Middle East. While the ads feature GOP candidates, they are being bankrolled by big-money super PACs....

Donald Trump Still Dogged by Simmering Trump University Scandal

Donald Trump is still on the hook for potentially millions of dollars in damages arising out of a scandal and lawsuit over another of his failed ventures, Trump University. In the latest development, a judge refused to dismiss him as a defendant in a California class action. Trump was seeking a summary judgment dismissing the claims.

Donald Trump Launches Venomous Attack on ‘Pathological’ Ben Carson

Donald Trump slapped Republican presidential rival Ben Carson in one of his most venomous campaign attacks yet, comparing him to a pathological child molester.

Donald Trump Butts Heads With Pope, Now Kisses Off Catholic Vote (video)

Donald Trump has already lost the Hispanic vote and the African-American vote. Now he’s likely kissed off the Catholic vote for butting heads with Pope Francis today (Sept 24) over his call for compassion and action on immigration and global warming.

Donald Trump vs. Stephen Colbert Over Wacky Right Wing Quotes (see!)

Donald Trump went head-to-head against Stephen Colbert’s former “Comedy Central” character to see who said the wackiest things. Of course, Donald is now a real wacky conservative and Colbert just played one. But their quotes were hard to tell apart. Trump made an appearance on the Late Show last night (Sept. 22) faced off in the contest of who said what? “For years I played an over-the-top, like, you know, conservative character,” said Colbert. “Not as long as you did, but for many years....

Donald Trump Lampooned by Latino Comedy Troupe: I Ain’t Voting for You!

Donald Trump vows to win the Latino vote if he wins the Republican nomination for president, but not if a Latino comedy troupe has its way. It released a video today (Aug. 27) lampooning the presidential hopeful for his outrageous comments about Mexico and immigration. Trump caused an uproar when he pronounced during his kickoff speech that illegal immigrants are “bringing drugs … they’re bringing crime … they’re rapists.”...

Jon Stewart Samples GOP’s Fulminous Frothing Over Hillary Clinton Campaign

Jon Stewart, like every other political junkie, was anxious to see the Republican (i.e. Fox News) response to Hillary Clinton’s official announcement that she is running for president in 2016. For the most part, he found it… underwhelming. After all, the GOP, metaphorically speaking, has been soaking a 2×4 in motor oil since 2008, just waiting to whack what they consider an easy target. ...

Obama Political Ad Skewers Mitt Romney Over Jobs (watch!)

President Obama delivered what may be his most effective political ad yet today (July 14), attacking presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney over outsourcing jobs and holding sketchy off-shore bank accounts.
