Yesterday, Lady Gaga made an appearance at the One America Appeal concert benefit for victims of recent hurricanes in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. Above is the official portrait, with her fans. The image has gone viral.
President Donald Trump, a soggy Cheeto in a broken toilet bowl, gave a speech at his inauguration that really blew everyone’s socks off as it gushed forcefully from his windbag mouth. Even former President George W. Bush, who is not considered one of the great orators of our time, was disturbed.
I have a head cold and a racist Keebler elf crossbred with a lying troll is still the Attorney General of the United States. HOW’S YOUR WEEK BEEN?
Barbara Pierce Bush, Dubya’s daughter, was on the cusp of adulthood when her father took office. As he was extremely anti-choice for his entire political career, including during the presidency, it’s notable that Barbara has matured into someone who speaks out in support of Planned Parenthood and a woman’s right to…
It didn’t take very much for 43rd President George W. Bush—who hated the media, started the Iraq War and still holds the lowest exit approval ratings of any president ever—to sound reasoned and sensible in comparison to our current esteemed President Donald John Trump.
The other night, while high Googling before bed, I got to thinking about the Bushes, in general, and Barbara Bush, in particular. I told my husband about how I think she cuts quite an intimidating figure and he agreed. So, I wondered, how tall is this woman who bedded down with one former president and birthed…
On July 12th, President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush will join mourners at an interfaith memorial service in Dallas, Texas. Each will speak to honor the memories of the police officers killed last Thursday night.
When he’s not busy making terrible paintings of dogs, former leader of the free world George W. Bush has to find some other ways to fill his days—like keeping up a correspondence with the World Congress of Families, which opposes gay marriage, abortion, and pornography, and which the Southern Poverty Law Center calls…
Jenna Bush Hager and her mother Laura Bush went on The Tonight Show to promote a children’s book they wrote about appreciating nature—an interesting sentiment, considering their family’s ties to the oil industry—and ended up chattin’ about another thing they appreciate: dad’s childlike, nightmarish paintings.
No words needed, really.
George W. Bush is out on the campaign trail stumping for Jeb, a development that definitely does not give us chilling flashbacks and stress diarrhea. Last night they went on Fox News together, where Sean Hannity beamed at them with delight and W. joyfully mangled the English language as though not a single day had…
The Associated Press circulated a video on Monday of former President George W. Bush, also known as That Guy Who Ruined the World, working a room in South Carolina like it’s 2004. I’ve just wet myself in terror, but what a charmer, yeah?
Ha, yes, wow, absolutely the right man at the right time: former President George W. Bush will be campaigning next week for never-going-to-be President Jeb Bush. Because if anybody’s going to turn this thing around, it’s the guy who left office with the lowest approval rating of all time.
Twitter reminds us that today is a special anniversary indeed: It’s the day George W. Bush got a shoe thrown at him by an Iraqi journalist and dodged that thing like a Japanese game show champ. Good god, what a magnificent duck that was:
Jeb Bush wants you to know that he’s different from all those political insiders. He’s just a guy whose father and brother happen to be two former presidents of the United States but, come on—that doesn’t mean anything.
With age, 91-year-old President George H.W. Bush’s attitude toward same-sex marriage has softened, according to a new biography by Jon Meacham.
If you’re a celebrity who hopes for many more magazine covers in her future, there’s one person you probably shouldn’t fuck with, and that’s Anna Wintour.
“So, so, so... euuuggh boy.” These were the first words Jon Stewart said to former New York Times reporter Judith Miller and Wednesday night Daily Show guest, and though they do not complete a sentence, within them there is so much history, resignation, and blame. Then, he came right out with it: “My feeling has…
On Monday, at the White House Easter Egg Roll, President Obama’s reading of Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are was interrupted by bees. The children in attendance screamed, because children and bees are natural enemies. The President urged them to stop screaming, because “bees are good,” and besides, wild…
