In last night’s Republican debate, questions were ignored, data were fudged, lies were lied. No lie was more compellingly told, however, than Carly Fiorina’s applause line that she had met Russian president Vladimir Putin in a private meeting—not a green room.
On Monday night, Republican presidential hopefuls Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, respectively, but only one arose victorious. Let’s compare the chats, shall we?
Russia, a country with absolutely nothing else to worry about, has decided to double down on being a human-rights-violating monstrosity of a place for anyone who isn’t straight or pretending to be: The country’s ruling class—to be clear, not a fringe group, but Putin allies Russia United—has unveiled a new flag…
Russian President and hairless, scowling badger Vladimir Putin has reappeared in public, after a 10-day absence and a string of public appearance cancellations. During his mysterious unannounced sabbatical, rumors swirled that he was sick, or dead, or attending the birth of another secret baby with his very-not-secret…
In a new video called "I Can't Breathe," the Russian punk group Pussy Riot make a statement about Eric Garner, the Black Lives Matter movement and their own struggles with Russian President Vladimir Putin's leadership.
Let me ask you something: What would you do if suddenly, unexpectedly, you found the arms of terrifying gun-toting, chest-bearing Russian president Vladimir Putin wrapping a shawl around your shoulders? Think fast! Because that's the position Chinese first lady Peng Liyuan recently found herself in.
Shade court is back in session and I'm feeling especially judge-y today. This week we welcome into our shade chambers a mouthy six-year-old (a youth after my own heart), some classic southern lady shade and a special bonus ruling that I had to hand down to keep the republic in order.
Merkel don't play.
Over the weekend, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), appearing on CNN's State of the Union, remarked that Russian president Vladimir Putin needed to "man up." What Feinstein meant, of course, is that Putin needs to grow up because manning up is the last thing that this bear-wrestling, gun-shooting shirtless horse…
Another day, another wise statement from brilliant mind Vladimir Putin. The Russian President took time away from his busy schedule of silencing other people's voices by adding one of his own, weighing in on the value of former Secretary of State, Senator and First Lady Hillary Clinton.
Congratulations, society. Dr. Phil has once again solved all of your problems, this time by getting two of the biggest world leaders to talk their problems out.
I feel like nobody cares about Girl Meets World—the long-awaited Boy Meets World spin-off—as much as I do, but I'm going to MAKE YOU PEOPLE CARE if it's the last thing I do. The show, which premieres this summer, will chronicle the life of Cory and Topanga's daughter as she bops around her middle school and,…
Graphic designer Fernando Sosa has created the most interesting sex toy prototype yet, a 3D-printed Vladimir Putin butt plug that's not quite ready for prime-time use but is an intriguing piece of protest art just the same.
After one week of US-Russian diplomatic arguments over whether Chobani yogurt could cross into Vladimir Putin's playground, Mother Russia has officially said no.
So far, the Sochi Olympics have been Russia as fuck. Last night, Bob Costas apologetically explained that he was wearing glasses because when he arrived in Sochi he contracted a mysterious eye infection. Then, he was forced to say "Pussy Riot," which was hilarious. But today, toward the end of the Games' opening…
Normally, the Olympics, with their feel good pageantry, would provide valuable respite from seasonal ennui. But this year, the Olympics are just making things worse.
Now that Vladimir Putin has banned all the pesky "homosexual propaganda," Broadway shows in Russia will have to make some serious revisions or go on permanent vacation (to Siberia, forevsies). Sounds like a great opportunity for Broadway stars like Michael Urie, Andrew Rannells, Laura Benanti, and Jonathan Groffto…
Sound the alarm because Pussy Riot is coming to America and shit. just. got. real.
Vladimir Putin should probably stop talking about gay people. In an interview today, the Russian president aimed to downplay fears that gay men and women will be in danger during the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi, but instead he might have done the opposite.
