Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum is known primarily for two things: his two failed runs for president and being the butt of an ass joke. So naturally, CNN gave him a job as a commentator, and today on State of the Union, he used that platform to spit up his particularly dumb opinion about yesterday’s March For…
President Donald Trump didn’t have much to say to rapper Eminem,
who has been excoriating him on wax (wait—do people even say “wax” anymore?) who has been ethering him in the cloud for a minute, but, again, Trump hasn’t responded.
Welcome to Barf Bag, a daily politics roundup to help you sort through the chaotic Trumpian news cycle.
Thomas Jefferson was looking for someone to write a hit piece. It was July 1793, just months after the U.S. declared neutrality in a war between Britain and France. The then-Secretary of State wanted a writer—or better yet, an entire publication—to criticize the government’s decision and respond to the colleague who…
One of the more amusing things about cable news—and contemporary media in general—is its insatiable appetite for branding major (and occasionally minor) news events as overly designed cross-platform content packages. These are most often seen during moments of extreme tragedy (terrorist attacks, war) or extreme…
Anthony “the Mooch” Scaramucci is not even a week into his new job as White House communications director and he’s already entered into an extremely public and very stupid fight with chief of staff Reince Priebus, tweeting last night, in response to a Politico story about his financial conflicts: “In light of the leak…
On Monday night, Page Six published a story about recently separated CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s new life on the dating scene. Their headline revealed that he was not just living the single life, but loving it.
When a large portion of pundits on cable news are actively benefiting from a corrupt and moronic administration, it’s especially gratifying to meet one who isn’t afraid to call them out on their bullshit.
Here’s a question: if you had an acquaintance who routinely came over to your house, squatted on your rug, took a lengthy, luxuriating shit on it, then looked you in the eye and insisted “There’s no shit on that rug,” would you keep having them over? Yes? Good Lord. You must be in cable news.
“Hysterical,” is how CNN pundit Jason Miller described Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Tuesday night.
On the heels of their break with Kathy Griffin, CNN has severed ties with Believer host Reza Aslan—and also, seemingly, for Trump-related reasons. Aslan recently referred to Donald Trump as a “piece of shit” on Twitter. Who among us, truly?
CNN is reporting that in March, the Trump administration blocked the network from sharing the intelligence that Trump last week shared with two Russian officials, arguing that it was highly classified:
I went to New York to interview for a job on HLN’s Nancy Grace in September of 2008, fewer than 48 hours after my mother’s funeral. When I tell people that, they always widen their eyes. I can tell what they want to ask me: “So your mom’s funeral wasn’t even the worst day of that week?”
On Monday, Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks joined Jake Tapper on CNN to promote “Trumpcare,” the new proposed replacement for the Affordable Care Act. And in so doing, he touted one aspect of the plan in candidly selfish terms: those who are healthy will no longer be burdened by the medical needs of the sick.
Four days after Bill O’Reilly was fired from Fox News for sexual harassment, former Fox News reporter and weekend anchor Alisyn Camerota said in an interview on Sunday with CNN’S Brian Stelter that former Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes sexually harassed her. Camerota said she was inspired by the O’Reilly…
President Donald Trump, a moldy sponge that smells faintly of vomit, is not a big fan of the media. Thank god his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner is there to whisper his displeasure to the people in power.
Donald Trump, a used wet nap, was inaugurated less than a month ago. For many, it feels like hundreds of years, but the toll those days have taken on Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway is increasingly visible.
Though every day in 2017 feels like a week, it has only been four days since Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump’s flaxen-haired special adviser, showed her ass on national television by fabricating the “Bowling Green Massacre,” an event that did not happen, in order to justify the president’s Muslim ban. And now, she…
Senators Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz, two people the country wanted as their president even less than the two options we ended up with, will waste everyone’s time and whittle away at the precious supply of sanity we have left with a televised debated about the future of Obamacare.
