Stevie Wonder Takes a Knee ‘for America’ in Solidarity After Trump’s Colin Kaepernick Tirade

Stevie Wonder took to his knee in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick and other athletes who previously knelt during the national anthem to protest police brutality against African-Americans.

Before performing hits such as “Higher Ground” and “Overjoyed” at Global Citizen Festival in New York City on Saturday, the 67-year-old singer started his headlining set by addressing the controversy reignited by President Donald Trump’s most recent remarks about NFL player who kneel during the national anthem.

“Tonight, I’m taking a knee for America,” Wonder said as he knelt with his son Kwame Morris. “Not just one knee, but I’m taking both knees. Both knees in prayer for our planet, our future, leaders of our world and our globe. Amen.”

He added, “I wanted to say that prayer before I serve you my musical meal.”

During a rally speech in Alabama on Friday, Trump stated, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, say, ‘Get that son of a b–ch off the field right now. Out, you’re fired.’”

He followed this up by pouring more gasoline on the fire with a series of tweets. “If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect…our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem,” he wrote. “If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!”

Numerous celebrities — including Diddy — have also joined in standing behind the players, causing a resurgence of the #TakeAKnee hashtag on social media.

In August 2016, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines for refusing to stand for the national anthem.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick said at the time. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Amandla Stenberg Learned of Trump’s Election Win From Actor in Nazi Uniform: ‘I Started Sobbing’

Amandla Stenberg heard the news of Donald Trump‘s presidency from a shocking source.

The 18-year-old actress is gracing the cover of Teen Vogue‘s Icons Issue. And in the story, she opened to Janelle Monáe about her experiences with racism in and out of Hollywood.

Stenberg was on set of her upcoming movie Where Hands Touch — where she plays a biracial girl growing up during the Holocaust — the night of the election.

“An actor playing a Nazi soldier took out his phone to refresh the news and announced that Trump was president,” Stenberg told Monáe. “I was actually seeing this come out of the mouth out of an actor dressed in a Nazi uniform.”

“Immediately, I excused myself because I felt like I couldn’t breathe anymore,” she added. “I started sobbing. It was shocking. It made me really question how we could reach a point where our country is so divided.”

RELATED VIDEO: Natasha Stoynoff Breaks Silence, Accuses Donald Trump of Sexual Attack

Stenberg recounted how the director of the film, Amma Asante, found her on set and offered words of comfort — telling Stenberg that “progress is like a coil you have to go down in order to circle back up again. That’s how it’s worked throughout history. That’s how it will continue to work.”

The Hunger Games actress also opened up about getting rid of her iPhone to make sure she’s in the right mental state.

“Amid all of the chaos in the world right now, it’s so important that everyone actively works to preserve their mental health so that we’re able to heal and create change,” Stenberg said. “I got rid of my iPhone, and that was essential in preserving my mental health. Now I have a flip phone that I just use to talk to people and hear their actual voices.”

Transparent Pushes Boundaries in Season 4 as Cast Blasts Donald Trump’s ‘Assault on the Transgender Community’

Two days after President Donald Trump announced a controversial ban on transgender people serving in the military, PEOPLE can exclusively share the first trailer for the new season of the Emmy-winning series Transparent, as well as the cast and creators’ response to Trump’s proclamation.

“We are honored to share the trailer for Transparent season 4. We feel very lucky to get to make art inspired by themes of love, home and boundaries, and how they operate in both human beings as well as nations,” the joint statement begins.

“Sharing this work amidst President Trump’s continued assault on the transgender community is painful. We are outraged that he announced in a tweet that transgender people would not be allowed to serve ‘in any capacity’ in the U.S. military. It is reprehensible to deny an estimated 15,000 current trans service members, and 134,000 trans veterans, the dignity, respect and safety that they deserve,” the statement continues.

“At Transparent we believe in the integrity of the trans community, which we know firsthand because we are all either trans or allies to the trans community. It is a revolutionary act for a trans person to simply leave the house and walk down the street. We tap into the incredible history of survival the trans community has achieved against all odds, knowing that our fight is noble and on the side of justice and human rights.”

“To our trans community members serving in the military and to transgender veterans: We work in solidarity with you and will continue fighting and creating art for our community’s well-being and future,” it reads. “We hope that you’ll enjoy the trailer for season 4 because our visibility and our stories are more important than ever.”

The statement concludes, “GLAAD’s Trump Accountability Project is working every day to shine a bright light on all of the anti-LGBTQ actions taken by this administration, please follow them on Twitter @glaad or visit glaad.org/tap for the latest steps you can take to resist.”

RELATED VIDEO: Everything Donald Trump Has Said About the LGBTQ Community as President Announces Trans Military Ban

 

In the trailer for the upcoming season of the Amazon series, the Pfeffermans appear to be dealing better with their family’s dysfunction.

“You can just start again, and you never look back,” Jeffrey Tambor‘s Maura says as the Jesus Christ Superstar tune “Everything’s Alright” plays in the background.

Later in the trailer, son Josh (Jay Duplass) tells his mom (Judith Light) that she’s a “boundary pusher,” to which she replies, “I have no idea what boundaries are.”

And the Pfefferman daughters, Sarah (Amy Landecker) and Alexandra (Gaby Hoffmann), are embroiled in their own messy love lives.

But personal problems seem to be put on hold as the Pfefferman family bonds on their trip to Israel — which Sarah seems to think is like an “Orthodox Jewish Disneyland.”

Transparent returns to Amazon on Sept. 22.

Seth Meyers Rips Trump’s Team For Making Us Question Our Sanity

The president is under investigation. That much we know, right?

Wrong! Sad! You’re the puppet!

Seth Meyers took a confusing trip down the rabbit hole on Monday to try to make sense of the mixed messages coming from the White House about the alleged investigation into Donald Trump’s Russian ties.

First, the president tweeted an investigation was happening; then Jay Sekulow, a member of his legal team, denied it; and then Sekulow apparently confirmed it before immediately denying it again.

Thankfully, Meyers was there sifting through the ashes of our own sanities to break down what’s going on. He also breaks out his Jared Kushner impression, thanks to the Trump senior adviser’s recent reveal of his true voice. So if your head is hurting during this whole ordeal, at least there’s that.

New Moby Video Depicts Donald Trump’s Rise And A Violent Demise

Moby believes that it is “obvious” the world is “a millimeter away from collapse.”

That fearful idea may already be seared into his own mind, but the artist wants to make sure that you too are considering the possibility of existential demise. “We’re slowly building awareness and you just hope that the awareness comes before we end up on a planet that’s uninhabitable,” said Moby in a recent phone conversation about his new album, “More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse.”

But Moby understands that shouting “dire!” is not as newsworthy as “fire!” He expressed frustration that in the “bleeds it leads approach” to media, topical “dramatic” stories win attention over the slow killers, such as antibiotic resistance and climate change. Along with his fear that the world is ending is a fear that nobody cares to notice.

And so the artist isn’t afraid to provide a bit of drama and set a spark to get a point across. 

In Moby’s new music video, “In This Cold Place,” President Donald Trump is depicted as a Nazi-esque leader that takes over the world with a missile-firing machine shaped like a swastika and dollar symbol. By the end of the video, the Trump machine blows up as the oppressed people of the world rise up against him.

English illustrator and animator Steve Cutts ― who Moby worked with before on the viral music video, “Are You Lost In The World Like Me?” ― created the video and the original concept with notes from Moby. “He’d send me a drawing, almost with a little hesitation, saying, ‘Oh, do you think we can get away with this?’” Moby recalled. “And I was like, yeah, why not, just make it, go as far you want.”

Moby further encouraged Cutts “to make it even more dystopian and more extreme.”

Art depicting violence against Trump’s likeness is a trigger for controversy at the moment. Just last month, Kathy Griffin released a photo of her holding a bloodied head that looked like Trump’s. Over the last week, The Public Theater in New York City presented a version of “Julius Caesar” with a Trump-esque character getting stabbed to death by other politicians.

Both garnered protesters and a loss of advertisers, even though the latter presentation was actually a cautionary tale warning against hot-blooded assassinations.

Earlier this year, Snoop Dogg had a music video where he aimed a gun at a clown that looked like Trump. Trump responded to Snoop Dogg’s video on Twitter by suggesting ― with an exclamation point as he is wont to do ― that the artist should be locked up.

“Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama?” wrote the president. “Jail time!”

When HuffPost spoke with Moby in May, only the Snoop Dogg incident had occurred. Still, the artist seemed entirely committed to his artistic decision.

“The criteria that you would use to determine where you draw the line is simply what’s effective and what’s legal,” said Moby.

“And I don’t mean legal in a cowardly way. I mean legal in a way that would lead something to be taken off the internet. Because you can make the best content in the world but if YouTube and Facebook won’t let people see it, then what’s the point of having this great content.”

He explained that in his mind, that’s “the only place for me to draw the line.”

The criteria that you would use to determine where you draw the line is simply what’s effective and what’s legal.
Moby

The video, released under the Moby & The Void Pacific Choir moniker, presents a cautionary tale of trusting capitalist marketing. Satirical takes on the Care Bears and Mickey Mouse distract Americans while rich people suck all the money out of the economy.

Trump’s rise in the video makes a point about how even though he clearly used a violent and dangerous “machine” to take over the country, he simultaneously tried to present himself as a cuddly old man and safe politician – such as when he hosted “Saturday Night Live” or let Jimmy Fallon rumple his hair.

The final act of the music video presents an imagined scenario of the proletariat fighting back and toppling the aristocracy, but all these visuals of destruction are presented as metaphor rather than a direct call-to-arms. The final scene even suggests that this attack on the ruling regime only takes place in the protagonist’s mind.

“I think that we’ve managed [to] be on the legal side of copyright violation,” said Moby. “Like everything in there looks familiar but nothing is a direct rip-off of existing copyright. Or so I am hoping.”

In February, Moby garnered media attention when he claimed, on social media, that he had sources that confirmed to him that Trump is being “blackmailed” by the Russian government.

“Intelligence agencies around the world, and here in the u.s, [sic] are horrified by the incompetence of the trump administration, and are working to present information that will lead to high level firings and, ultimately, impeachment,” Moby wrote. He also stated that the Trump administration might try to use a war with Iran as a distraction.

Although Moby’s claim to have reliable sources seemed questionable at the time, the statement still gained widespread coverage. Variety reported that Moby’s followers drew a line between the resignation of then National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and his prediction.

“I didn’t want as much attention as I got,” Moby explained to HuffPost with a laugh. “I don’t want to be the sort of ad-hoc mouthpiece for disgruntled people who work at intelligence agencies. But I just, felt like I had an audience and [my friends in the intelligence community had] asked me to sort of just draw attention to what the administration was doing to try and drum up an excuse for war.”

For those still deeply curious about this Moby-as-Deep-Throat situation, here’s his full explanation:

Without saying too much, over the years [I have] somehow managed to become friends with people in intelligence services in different countries. And I met up with some of them a few months ago, and they were talking about the Russian dossier and how everyone associated with it is being killed off.

And the thing that kind of scared them the most, was the false pretenses that the Trump administration were drumming up to try to go to war. Specifically at that time they were concerned about, I think it was the USS Cole, was antagonizing Iran. And the Trump administration was hoping that Iran would do something that would justify us going to war with Iran.

So one reason I posted that was in my own way to let the administration know that the intelligence communities ― and I’m not sure the only person doing this ― but there was awareness of what they were doing.

And the other stuff I posted ― like in the post I said look at Michael Flynn ― and a week later he was fired. Just as a way, again I can’t say too much, but just as a way of sort of like, trying to add legitimacy to the other things that I was writing about.

Moby also revealed that his source was a “career intelligence person” that asked him to relay this information ― all of which is unconfirmed. According to Moby though, “the straw that really broke the camel’s back” in terms of Trump’s relationship with the intel community is when immediately after his inauguration, Trump “went to the FBI headquarters and gave a self-promoting speech in front of the wall of fallen heroes.”

“If Trump is impeached or forced to resign, you can kind of trace it back to that moment,” said Moby. “That’s when all the career intelligence officers just decided that Trump is terrible and has to go.”

The premiere of the music video for “In This Cold Place” comes less than a week after Moby surprise released his latest album, “More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse.” The song is the sixth on this new Moby & The Void Pacific Choir album.

“At this point in my life ― maybe I really shouldn’t say this ― but given the way the music business is, when I make a record I don’t really expect too many people, or anyone, to pay attention or buy what I’ve done,” said Moby of making this new album. “So to that end, the joy and satisfaction that I get from making records has to be the act of actually making them.

“Like in the old days,” Moby continued, “You could find satisfaction from selling millions of records, but now the happiness I get is just the act of making them and putting them out into the world. And just sort of seeing what happens.”

Specifically, Moby now believes he can reach his biggest audience through music videos. And in that that medium, he feels he can be more explicit about his political ideas.

“As time has passed, I’ve wanted more and more for my work to somehow reflect my political concerns and my world views and issues that are important to me,” said Moby. “I’ve realized that music videos are just a really good way of trying to do that.” 

At this point in my life — maybe I really shouldn’t say this — but given the way the music business is, when I make a record I don’t really expect too many people, or anyone, to pay attention or buy what I’ve done.
Moby

Moby spends much of the “In This Cold Place” music video characterizing the similarly controversial ills of the food industry. The backlash from claiming meat is murder could certainly rival a backlash from depicting violence against Trump. Even liberals often aren’t receptive to the idea of veganism.

And yet, as a vocal proponent of veganism, Moby doesn’t shy away from including this cause in the work as well.

“I’ve been a vegan now for 30 years and honestly, the cause of animal rights ―that’s my life’s work,” said Moby. “There’s almost nothing that humans are doing that’s more destructive to our species than using animals for food. And of course we’re destroying the animals ― a couple hundred billion a year ― but in doing [that], we’re also killing ourselves and making the planet uninhabitable.”

He stressed, “if I have a purpose on this planet, it’s simply drawing attention to that.”

The world needs saving, in Moby’s mind, and he’s certainly not wrong. But still, he remains dubious you’ll hear him.

“When it comes to issues, like being a good vegan or animal rights activist, I can’t just scream,” said Moby. “You have to strategically present the information in a way that people might be receptive [and] might respond to it. That’s why I felt like doing it in a cartoonish way in the video would both sort of draw people in and repel them at the same time in equal measure.”

This is an artist who knows what he’s doing.

And in this final millimeter away from a World War III you’ll read about on social media, Moby just wants you to listen.

Stephen Colbert Explains Donald Trump’s Most Frustrating Contradiction

Much of America watched former FBI Director James Comey testify in front of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Thursday. Nielsen Media reported around 19.5 million watched on television, but millions more streamed the testimony online since it took place during the typical work day.

President Donald Trump was among those watching ― and he soon publicly addressed the various accusations Comey leveled against him.

“Comey was pretty rough on the president,” Stephen Colbert said “The Late Show” Friday night. “But right after the testimony, Trump sent his longtime personal lawyer and devil who has a thing he wants you to sign, Marc Kasowitz to respond.”

The host played a clip of the lawyer claiming that Comey’s testimony vindicated Trump, because in Kasowitz’s words, the former FBI director confirmed publicly what he had told Trump privately. This referred to Trump’s insistence that Comey had told him that he was not under investigation by the FBI.

As a quick refresher into this confusing mess: It is true that when Trump asked Comey whether he was personally under investigation, he was not. But Trump associates were under investigation and Comey’s testimony on Thursday indicated that Trump may be facing an investigation into whether the president obstructed justice.

This is where Kasowitz began an extremely frustrating contradiction, as Colbert explained.

But even though, everything Comey said proved Trump wasn’t guilty, he was also a liar?
Stephen Colbert

“But even though, everything Comey said proved Trump wasn’t guilty, he was also a liar?” Colbert said.

He then played another part of the Kasowitz clip where the lawyer detailed the various ways Comey had allegedly lied during the testimony. 

This bizarre argument tracked with what the president later tweeted.

During his testimony, Comey also called Trump a liar on multiple occasions.

It’s a classic he said, he said (American politics still being dominated by men, of course).

Now you’ve got to choose whether to believe the “Twin Peaks” character Agent Dale Cooper incarnate in Comey or… well… the apparent “liar in chief.”

Tim Cook ‘Reveals’ Who Is Really Behind Donald Trump’s Late Night Tweets

Tim Cook used part of his address to graduating students at Massachusetts Institute of Technology on Friday to poke fun at President Donald Trump.

The Apple CEO began by saying he’d never figured out how students at the university in Cambridge pulled off their spectacular course-end pranks ― such as the placing of a propeller atop the campus’ Great Dome.

“Or how you’ve obviously taken over the president’s Twitter account,” Cook added. “I can tell college students are behind it because most of the tweets happen at 3 a.m.”

Cook went on to deliver some serious advice to the class of 2017, and the effect that the online world may have on their lives.

“The internet has enabled so much and empowered so many. But it can also be a place where the basic rules of decency are suspended and pettiness and negativity thrive,” Cook said.

He encouraged students not to let “the noise knock you off course” or to “get caught up on the trivial aspects of life.”

“Don’t listen to the trolls, and for God’s sake don’t become one,” Cook added. “Measure your impact on humanity not in likes, but in the lives you touch. Not in popularity, but in the people you serve.”

Watch Cook’s full speech in the clip below:

Stephen Colbert Imagines Another Batch Of Donald Trump’s Postcards Home

Donald Trump has got the postcard-writing bug. Kind of.

On Friday’s “Late Show,” Stephen Colbert imagined another batch of notes that Trump has been sending back to his family members and allies during his first big trip abroad as president.

“The Pope has a Golden Throne too!” he writes to his son, Donald Trump Jr., in one of his missives, referencing meeting Pope Francis at the Vatican.

“But for some reason, his doesn’t flush,” he adds.

Check out the rest of the postcards in the clip above.

Melania Trumps’ Style Secrets, Decoded With 5 Simple Rules

ESC: Melania TrumpFirst lady fashion changes with each administration, but if Melania Trump’s wardrobe is one thing, it’s consistent.
That’s not to say her style hasn’t…

E! Online (US) – Fashion Police

Special Tip Update!

The Funniest Moment From Trump’s Pope Visit You Didn’t See

Can someone give Donald Trump a hand?

Not applause. Can someone give him any tiny hand to hold?

Given all the attention paid to video clips of Melania Trump swatting away her husband’s attempts at hand-holding, it seems that President Trump is losing the popular vote at home, too. 

Enter: the Pope.

The recent viral photo of a very unimpressed-looking Pope Francis standing alongside Trump seemed like just another PR headache for POTUS. Now, Jimmy Kimmel has revealed it’s even worse than you thought.

Kimmel spent a long segment on Wednesday making fun of Trump’s visit with the Pope. At one point he rolled a clip, saying, “Professional issues aside, on a personal level meeting the Pope was a big deal for Donald Trump, and we’ve seen how things have been going between him and Melania lately, so when Trump reached out, I know he had to be disappointed …”

”The Pope wouldn’t hold his hand, either,” said Kimmel. “Poor guy. He just wants to be loved. He just wants to be touched. That’s all.”

It’s clearly doctored footage, but wow. You gotta hand it to Kimmel. 

“Jimmy Kimmel Live!” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.

Stephen Colbert Imagines Donald Trump’s Postcards Home

President Donald Trump’s (spoof) postcards are something to write home about.

On Monday’s “Late Show,” Stephen Colbert imagined the kind of missives that Trump is sending back to his friends and family in the U.S. during his nine-day jaunt to the Middle East and Western Europe.

“I keep getting ‘Hamas’ and ‘Hummus’ confused,” he pens to National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster.

Check out the rest of the postcards in the clip above.

‘Late Show’ Packs Donald Trump’s Suitcase For His First Foreign Trip

Tic Tacs? Check. Golf balls? Check. Photograph of Russian President Vladimir Putin? Check.

On Friday, “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” imagined just what Donald Trump packed in his suitcase for his first trip overseas as president.

There’s no sign of any steaks, though. Presumably because the caterers preparing his meals in Saudi Arabia have already got that covered. 

Find out what else Trump “packed” in the clip above.

John Oliver Calls ‘Turbo Bulls**t’ On Trump’s Comey Claims

John Oliver isn’t buying it.

The “Last Week Tonight” host doesn’t believe President Donald Trump’s claims that former FBI director James Comey said that Trump himself wasn’t under investigation three times. 

“I call bullshit,” Oliver said on Sunday night. “I call turbo bullshit on that. There is no way those conversations went down in that manner.” 

The president is somehow “both a terrible and an amazing liar, and I don’t know how that’s physically possible,” Oliver said.

Oliver also slammed the “genuinely weird” termination letter as well as the following week of “confusing and contradicting” explanations that were ultimately blown up by Trump’s interview with NBC’s Lester Holt on Thursday. 

That was when Trump admitted he was going to can Comey, no matter what.

“Trump is so desperate to appear dominant he will rush to take the credit for anything no matter how bad it is,” Oliver said, adding:

“If you wanted him to confess to murder, all a lawyer would have to say is ‘Your honor, the killer could not possibly have been Donald Trump. It must have been someone much stronger and smarter with a much hotter daughter,’ and before they finished that sentence, Trump would be yelling, ‘I did it! It was me! Lock me up! Lock me up! Lock me up!’”

Stephen Colbert Explains Why Trump’s Firing Of Comey Isn’t Really Like ‘The Godfather’

President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey has been likened to a classic scene from “The Godfather.”

Following Comey’s dismissal on Tuesday, one senior intelligence official told NBC News that the “thuggish” and “humiliating” way in which his termination was carried out was like a “horse head in the bed.”

It was “designed to send a message,” the official added.

But on Friday’s “Late Show,” host Stephen Colbert explained why the comparison wasn’t actually that accurate ― and it’s all to do with one of Godfather Don Corleone’s favorite personality traits: respect.

Find out the reason in the clip above.

Stephen Colbert Imagines The Initial Drafts Of Donald Trump’s Letter To James Comey

Writing James Comey’s termination letter didn’t come easy for President Donald Trump. Apparently.

On Wednesday, the “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” imagined some of the initial drafts of the final note that Trump sent to the now former FBI director informing him of his firing.

Evolving from single line statements to ones written in Russian, they’re amusingly chronicled in the clip above.

Robert De Niro Rages At Donald Trump’s Arts Defunding

Yes, Mr. President, he’s talking to you.

Robert De Niro took the opportunity while accepting the Chaplin Award in New York City Monday to blast President Donald Trump’s proposal to slash the federal arts budget

The actor told the audience at the Film Society of Lincoln Center event that movies go through a voting process of sorts by critics and filmgoers, before posterity decides if they’re art.

“I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately because of our government’s hostility towards art,” he said.

“The budget proposal, among its other draconian cuts to life-saving and life-enhancing programs, eliminates the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. For their own divisive political purposes, the administration suggests that the money for these all-inclusive programs goes to rich liberal elites,” he continued.

“This is what they now call an ‘alternative fact,’ but I call it bullshit.”

De Niro wasn’t done. “I don’t make movies for ‘rich, liberal elites,’ “ he said.  “I’ve got my restaurants for that. I ― and all of us speaking here tonight — make them for you.”

The Hollywood great, a frequent critic of the president, also worked in a slap at the administration’s immigration policies. He noted that Chaplin was “an immigrant who probably wouldn’t pass today’s ‘extreme vetting.’”

“I hope we’re not keeping out the next Chaplin,” he said.

Rachel Maddow Is ‘Comforted’ By Donald Trump’s ‘Incompetence’

President Donald Trump’s “incompetence” isn’t such a bad thing, according to Rachel Maddow.

On Tuesday’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” the MSNBC host said she was actually “comforted by the fact that [Trump] can’t do anything that he wants to do” ― despite the GOP also controlling both houses of Congress. But Maddow did says she’s “worried that he will figure it out.”

“I mean, it’s weird, it’s like the overall question is: Are you comforted by his incompetence?” she asked. “Would you rather have a competent person trying to do bad things or would you rather have an incompetent person trying to do bad things?”

Maddow also said leading Democrats needed to “re-discover their inner water skier” and allow themselves to be towed along by the boat that is the American people.

“Counting on the Democratic Party and its elected officials to sort of lead an election campaign against Trump, or to lead on policy stuff, or to lead people toward making Democratic choices hasn’t been working,” she said.

Those officials would “be unstoppable” if they took their cues from grassroots activists who have come to the fore in protests during the Trump administration, Maddow said.

Check out the full interview above.

Summing Up Donald Trump’s First 100 Days In A Trump-Like Tweet

WASHINGTON ― Given President Donald Trump’s incessant Twitter usage, HuffPost asked guests at comedian Samantha Bee’s “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner” on Saturday to sum up the president’s first 100 days in a Trump-style tweet.

“You have to tweet from the toilet, obviously,” Bee said. “Whatever it is, it feels like it came from someone sitting on the toilet and shrieking an idea to an assistant nearby.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper theorized about Trump’s preferred tweet formula before thinking about his answer.

“Declarative statement. Declarative statement. Adjective,” he said.

Actress and comedian Retta, star of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” put it simply: “Hot. Mess.”

Watch everyone’s responses in the video above.

Salute This Auto-Tuned Summary Of Donald Trump’s First 100 Days

This is the song of President Donald Trump’s first 100 days.

British satirical website The Poke has given all Trump’s major (and often bizarre) moments an auto-tuned twist in tribute to his time in office.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer, chief strategist Steve Bannon, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and British Prime Minister Theresa May all feature alongside the commander in chief in the clip.

Odds on to be a floor-filler in nightclubs across Moscow this summer,” the website wrote on YouTube. It’s a “medley of highlights” from “the most bizarre presidency in U.S. history,” the site added.

44 Leaders, Legislators And Artists Sum Up Trump’s First 100 Days

In October 2016, before Donald Trump defeated Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, he outlined a plan of all the things he hoped to accomplish during his first 100 days in office.

But in the wake of failure and unfulfilled promises as his 100th day approaches, the president has changed his tune. Last week, he criticized “the ridiculous standard” of the first 100 days, slamming the deadline in one sentence.

To mark the milestone, HuffPost asked lawmakers, activists, lobbyists and influencers to offer their own (roughly) one-sentence takes on Trump’s first 100 days. 

Here are the responses, which have been lightly edited for clarity and style:

Khizr Khan, Gold Star father

“Every action and word of Trump has [a] foul stench of political expediency and self-aggrandizing, total lack of moral compass and leadership.”

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.)

“President Trump has spent his first 100 days lying to the American people about issues both great and small, refusing to disclose his tax returns or address fears about his campaign’s ties to Russia, struggling to advance a coherent foreign policy strategy and failing to guarantee affordable health coverage for all Americans … #sad!”

Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter 

“45 has proven to be one of the most dangerous human beings on the planet; we must resist his regime and build a movement in the millions.”

Cathy Heller, one of the women who accused Trump of sexual misconduct

“[The first 100 days] are as bad as I thought they’d be. I am a bit relieved that some of his efforts — the travel ban, his health care bill — have been stymied so far, but those fights are not over.” 

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)

“Evolving.”

Philip Ellender, president of government and public affairs at Koch Industries

“We’re encouraged by the administration’s work to rein in burdensome and unnecessary regulatory overreach that has stifled innovation and has added unnecessary costs to goods and services that Americans rely on every day.”

Michael Mann, climate scientist

“Back in October, I wrote that Donald Trump is a threat to the planet, and what we have seen in his first 100 days of office — denying the threat of climate change, hiring climate deniers and fossil fuel industry lobbyists to fill key administrative roles, and issuing executive orders aimed at dismantling the progress of the past eight years — reaffirms that.” 

Aasif Mandvi, actor

“It’s been 100 days. I can’t believe it’s only been 100 days. I thought he was going to take a year to start showing signs of demagoguery.”

Fr. James Martin, editor-at-large of America magazine and consultant to the Vatican’s Secretariat for Communication

“I hope that the president might consider the needs of those he used to call ‘losers’ ― in this case, those who have lost out at the hands of the economy: the poor, the homeless, the unemployed, the sick and the uninsured.”

Sheryl Crow, singer-songwriter

“There’s been an arc of betrayal, chaos, manipulation and ignorance.”

Richard Cohen, president of the Southern Poverty Law Center

“President Trump has proven in his first 100 days that the economic populism of his campaign was fake, but that the racism and xenophobia were very real. His support for the health care bill showed his indifference to the fate of those trying to make ends meet. At the same time, he’s pressed a far-right agenda targeting immigrants, Muslims, the LGBT community and others who are vulnerable.”

Tom Perriello, Democratic candidate for governor of Virginia

“It is hard to decide whether his supporters, whom I meet with often on the trail, are more disheartened by President Trump’s sheer incompetence, his ties to Russia, or his failure to focus on jobs, but this toxic trifecta means about the most positive review I hear is, ‘Give him a bit more time.’”

April Reign, activist who created #OscarsSoWhite

“Trump’s first 100 days have been harrowing and bear witness that we must challenge him and his administration at every turn by continuing to fight for justice and equity for all marginalized communities.”

Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.)

“About as bad as could be expected from a team of misogynist, climate-change denying, anti-immigration, billionaire civil rights opponents, but we better be ready for even worse to come.”

Ben Cohen, activist and co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s

“It’s clear now that ‘Drain the Swamp’ really meant ‘Suck up all the morally bankrupt billionaires, Wall Street executives, and special-interest pond scum, and then pump them into the White House with a fire hose.’”

Raed Saleh, leader of Syrian rescue group the White Helmets

“After President Obama failed to uphold his ‘red line’ and let [Syrian President Bashar Assad] put Syria into a six-year spiral of horror and destruction, Syrians have found hope in President Trump’s resolve to reassert the international community’s intolerance towards the use of chemical weapons. We now wait to see if he will lead the international effort to help protect Syrians from other brutal regime tactics, and to help build a democratic alternative to the brutality and extremism of both Assad and ISIS.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.)

“Promises to working families: either broken or unfulfilled.”

Former Rep. John Tierney (D-Mass.), executive director at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation

“To date, President Trump’s nuclear policy can only be described as consistently inconsistent. After 100 days with the nuclear codes, it’s still not clear that the president understands the complexity of the nuclear threats facing the United States or that these threats cannot be mitigated through tweeting.”

Kathy Griffin, comedian

“During the first 100 days, there’s been never a better time to be a standup comic and never a scarier time to be a human on the planet of Earth.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)

“President Trump’s first 100 days have been a disastrous parade of broken promises to working people, handouts to wealthy special interests, and deep damage to the health and economic security of America’s families.”

Rob Delaney, comedian and co-creator of Amazon’s “Catastrophe”

“Seen from space, Trump’s first 100 days has been a muddled but steady effort to lay the groundwork to redistribute the nation’s wealth from the bottom 99 percent to the top 1 percent, with him and his grotesque family astride the foul summit (with a side order of bigotry).”

Raffi Freedman-Gurspan, director of external relations for the National Center for Transgender Equality

“The Trump administration has taken malicious and harmful actions against several minority groups over the last 100 days, including attacking one of the nation’s most vulnerable populations by rescinding Title IX guidance that clarified how to create safe and affirming environments for transgender children.”

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.)

“Bad for children, mothers, workers, immigrants, women’s health, LGBTQ rights and national security, just to name a few.”

Peter Neffenger, former administrator of the Transportation Security Administration

“Although a new administrator has not yet been nominated, I’m glad to see that the transformative changes we began continue to move forward, particularly with respect to partnering with the private sector to develop and deploy new security technologies through the TSA Innovation Task Force, coupled with continued focus and coordination on public area security.”

Chuck Jones, president of United Steelworkers Local 1999

“Donald Trump’s delusional.”

Al Madrigal, comedian and former correspondent on “The Daily Show”

“It’s been a shockingly horrible disaster ― he’s gone back on so many promises that I can’t believe the people in his base that put him in office can continue to support him, considering that he hasn’t done a thing that he’s promised to do. But what do I know? I’m just some idiot comedian.”

Jonathan Gruber, economics professor at MIT

“Trump’s first 100 days showed that democracy still functions as long as there are truth-telling organizations out there like the CBO ― and highlighted the key dependence of our government on those institutions.”

Richard Carmona, U.S. surgeon general from 2002-2006

“A perception of unpredictable entropy, chaos, confusion and alternate facts have so far infected the beltway. America is better than this, let’s show the world who we really are!”

Tamika Mallory, national co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington

“We need to continue to use our voices to push back on the harmful policies and rhetoric of this administration, because the imminent threat that communities are up against is something too great to ignore.”

Andy Slavitt, former acting administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services under President Barack Obama

“Trump’s relationship to the presidency so far seems like my relationship with dieting ― he wants the results without doing the hard work.” 

Melissa Etheridge, singer-songwriter

“It has solidified and brought to the surface even more the importance of diversity and how diversity is challenging and fearful to some. Being on the other side of diversity — being the diverse part of diversity — that means it is my job to take that freedom, to take that responsibility and to respect and love myself and to stand in my truth with it and show that the only way to get out of this mess is by understanding and believing that diversity is what makes us stronger.”

Tom Colicchio, “Top Chef” host and co-founder of FoodPolicyAction.org

“The first hundred days of any presidency comes with a steep learning curve … unfortunately, this instance has been a classic example of ‘You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.’”

Neil Gaiman, author of American Gods

“I think it’s making things more urgent. I don’t know if we’re getting better art, I don’t know if we’re getting more art. But the art we are getting feels more urgent.”

Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD

“100 days of Trump translates into 100 days of erasure for the LGBTQ community ― from the census exclusion, to rescinding Obama’s guidance for trans youth in schools, and lack of any LGBTQ mentions on the White House website, he has spent the early days of his administration trying to remove us from the very fabric of this country, and we must resist.”

Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.)

“Major issue: Supreme Court nominee is approved. It’s one of the reasons why he got elected.”

Tom Toro, New Yorker cartoonist

“Despite countless pathetic failures during his first 100 days in office, Trump can point to one great accomplishment: He has inspired a record number of people to become politically engaged artists. The spontaneous creativity of the Resistance, led by ordinary citizens expressing themselves with extraordinary imagination, has grown day by day to become the most powerful cultural force of the century, and it ― not Trump’s vacuous, vain avarice ― will shape the future of our nation.”

Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.)

“With regards to marijuana policy, we need the Trump administration to stop sending mixed messages filled with backtracks and flat out flip-flops. We need to take the marijuana sector out of a grey zone and into a legitimate one.”

Kelly Garvy, founder of Protecting Progress in Durham

“Trump lies and embarrasses himself and the country on a daily basis, but for the past 100 days, I have forged new relationships and friendships with wonderful people in my community ― and we are ready for 2018.”

María Teresa Kumar, founding president and CEO of Voto Latino

“From immigration to health care, the president’s agenda is the antithesis of a forward-looking nation, with the potential to take us back to our country’s darkest days.”

Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.)

“Two words: Neil Gorsuch.”

Joycelyn Elders, U.S. surgeon general from 1993 to 1994

“While the POTUS may be a genius, he would greatly benefit by listening to the informed ideas of authorities in health care, education and human rights in order to bring motivation and hope to all.”

Ian Kerner, relationship counselor and sex therapist

“Whereas in the Obama era, ‘sexual cliteracy’ was on the rise and the ‘orgasm gap’ between men and women had been closing, I am now seeing a rise in sexual complaints from women about men who are woefully ill-cliterate. Sadly, the ‘Viva La Vulva’ years are over.” 

Heems, rapper

“It’s been really rough. I can say from a community perspective a lot of South Asians are much more worried about their reality.”

Lewis Black, comedian

“It feels like two and a half years. Two and a half years is what it feels like.”

Elizabeth Warren: Donald Trump’s Presidency ‘Feels Like Dog Years’

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) outlined her priorities for fighting President Donald Trump’s administration as she stopped by the “Tonight Show” to promote her new book

“We need to keep a focus on what he actually does, what he is doing to working families across this country,” Warren said on Tuesday’s show. “He’s been there for 100 days. I swear, it feels like dog years. You know? Like he’s been there forever!”

Warren’s new book is called This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle To Save America’s Middle Class, and battles were a regular topic during her interview with Jimmy Fallon.

The senator also discussed her experience demonstrating in the Women’s March on Washington this year, and how seeing a young girl on top of a man’s shoulders had a big impact on her.

Ivanka Trump’s Clothing Sales Increased In 2016

Perhaps Ivanka Trump didn’t need that glowing endorsement from Kellyanne Conway to help boost profits.  

Trump’s businesses are mentioned virtually every time she is, and those mentions came fast and furious over the past year she helped her father become president. There were also headlines over boycotts of Trump products, stores that dropped her lines, accusations of copying designs, retweets from the official White House Twitter account and the hypocrisy of importing goods made in China as her father insisted he’d rebuild the country with American labor

It all combined for a hefty increase in sales in 2016. 

G-III Apparel Group, Ltd., which licenses Trump’s clothing collection (her shoe line is licensed through Marc Fisher), reported a “$ 17.9 million increase in net sales of Ivanka Trump licensed products” for the year ending January 31. The company credits the brand with helping bring up its gross profits as a whole, according to a new annual report released April 3.  

There were observed drops in sales over the period ― at Nordstrom, for example ― and while sales of G-III-licensed merchandise continued to increase, they did so at a significantly slower pace. Forbes reported the brand did $ 100 million in revenue with G-III during the 2015 fiscal year, when it saw net sales increase by $ 24.9 million over 2014. 

Trump’s brand declined to comment, and G-III did not return a request for comment by the time of publication. A spokesperson did tell Refinery 29 off-record Monday that “while Ivanka Trump might have been one of its faster growing brands last year, it is not one of the larger brands that the company operates.” The Calvin Klein label, for example, saw twice as much growth for G-III, garnering an increase in sales of $ 43.7 million.

The news adds fuel to the fire engulfing the Trump family’s numerous conflicts of interest. While Trump announced she was stepping down from her company in January and prohibited the brand from using her likeness in March, she still receives financial reports and profits from the company, even after becoming an official White House employee. An ethics expert told The Huffington Post last month that the only way Trump can truly avoid a conflict of interest is to sell the company or decline a job in the White House. 

The only things that seem certain is that Trump’s brand, like her position in the White House, will continue to be a point of contention during her father’s presidency ― and that any publicity really is good publicity.

Your Fave Comedians Are Helping To Raise Money To Fight Trump’s Policies

“I’m going to venture a guess: For the past two months, the news out of Washington has left you scowling — and maybe even growling — more than laughing,” Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) president Rhea Suh recently wrote to supporters of the environment-focused non-profit she heads. “Well, we have something that might help.” 

Suh just announced the lineup of comedians who will be featured at the group’s April 25 event, “Stand Up! for the Planet: An Evening of Comedy Benefiting NRDC’s Litigation Fund.” This night of comedy will take place in Los Angeles and raise money for legal battles against Donald Trump’s administration concerning his climate change agenda (or lack thereof).

The comedians announced so far are Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Larry David, Martin Short, Tig Notaro, Jerrod Carmichael, JB Smoove, Tony Hale and Pete Davidson. 

“I am honored to be a part of such an amazing cause, especially during this critical time for NRDC,” Louis-Dreyfus told the Los Angeles Times. “Now more than ever, it’s important for us to join together and push back against the threats the new administration already poses to decades of environmental progress.”

Comedian Larry David memorably shouted “Trump’s a racist!” during the then-presidential candidate’s opening monologue at “Saturday Night Live” in 2015. He also told The New York Times before the election that thinking about Trump winning the presidency was “like contemplating your own death.”

But as Trump’s presidency is now a reality, the fate of the world may actually need saving by unlikely supergroups such as the NRDC, teamed with a few of Earth’s best comedians. David would certainly be an intriguing Captain Planet.

Celebrities Call For Compassion After Trump’s Missile Strike On Syria

Celebrities took to social media to voice their opinions following President Donald Trump’s decision to launch a direct attack on the Syrian government Thursday night.

According to Trump, the missile strikes were ordered in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack on civilians that left at least 100 people dead earlier this week.

“It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons,” Trump said Thursday from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Everyone from Rosie O’Donnell to Kerry Washington to Patton Oswalt to Lena Dunham weighed in on the military action. Many of them noted the apparent hypocrisy in bombing a country in one stroke and refusing to come to the aid of its refugees in another.

“If you support bombing Syria because they attacked with chemical weapons, but [you] supported banning Syrian refugees, [you’re] a f**kin hypocrite,” actor D.L. Hughley tweeted, referencing Trump’s attempts to enact a travel ban targeting Muslim-majority nations, including Syria.

This Is What Trump’s White House Correspondents Dinner Would Look Like

Donald Trump will be the first president in 36 years to be absent at the White House Correspondents Association dinner ― an annual tradition where media figures, politicians and celebrities schmooze for a night.

And while he and his staff likely turned down their invitations because of the president’s deep hatred for the media and so-called “fake news,” the folks over at “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” have figured out how to get Trump to attend: Invite the Russians.

What would that dinner look like? In Trump’s mind (or “The Late Show’s” version of Trump’s mind), it would probably include a Russian man like “Boris Yacanovich” riffing on journalists.

It would feature jokes like:

A journalist criticized the administration. And he was shot dead in the street. In broad daylight.

And other knee-slappers, including:

Another journalist expressed dissent. And he was dropped out of window. Kaboom.

Fingers crossed that the actual WHCA dinner never ends up looking like this.

J. K. Rowling Trolls Donald Trump’s Family With Hogwarts House Revelation

J. K. Rowling has suggested that there’s no need for the Hogwarts sorting hat when it comes to President Donald Trump’s family.

The Harry Potter author fired back in typically fierce style on Monday after journalist Oliver Willis sarcastically tweeted that Trump’s sons, Eric and Donald Jr., and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, would all be Slytherin alumni.

“You’ve got to get the letter before you put on the hat, Oliver,” Rowling wrote. 

The tweet seemed to imply that the trio would not follow in the footsteps of dark wizard Lord Voldemort by becoming Slytherins ― because they wouldn’t even be invited to the school of witchcraft and wizardry in the first place.

Perhaps Rowling’s previous claim that Donald Trump is actually worse than “He Who Shall Not Be Named” has something to do with it. Twitter users thought her subtle trolling of the Trumps was pure magic.

Ivanka Trump’s New Perfume Ad On ‘SNL’ Describes Her Perfectly

As the daughter of the president of the United States, Ivanka Trump is an influential force in the White House. And “Saturday Night Live” is holding her accountable for her father’s actions.

Scarlett Johansson plays the first daughter in a glamorous “SNL” ad for a fragrance it says is named after Ivanka’s influence on Donald Trump: Complicit. “For the woman who could stop all this ― but won’t.”

The skit unfolds like a typical advertisement for a high-end perfume, except this dreamy, Champagne-filled montage jabs at Ivanka’s self-proclaimed feminism and her ignorance over her father’s misogyny

“She’s a woman who knows what she wants. And knows what she’s doing,” a seductive voice-over says.

In the past, Ivanka Trump has advocated for working women and paid family leave, but has appeared to stay quiet as her father continues to back policies that trample women’s rights.

“A feminist, an advocate, a champion for women,” the commercial asks. “But, like, how?”

“SNL” has mocked Ivanka Trump in the past, but this is the first time the sketch show is casting a more critical spotlight on the first daughter. This time, it’s attacking her feminist advocacy without reservation.

“She’s loyal. Devoted,” the voice-over says, “but probably should’ve bounced after that whole ‘Access Hollywood’ bus thing.”

Stephen Colbert Does The Real Math On Donald Trump’s Promised Border Wall

President Donald Trump has promised so many things of his controversial southern border wall.

On the 2016 presidential election campaign trail, Trump vowed that his proposed U.S.-Mexico barrier would be “big, “powerful,” “impenetrable,” “physical” and “beautiful.”

With the due date for contractors to submit prototypes falling Friday, “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert talked to construction experts to find out just what it would take to build the barrier ― if all Trump’s promises were to be met.

Find out how much Colbert estimates the wall would cost and how long it would take to build in the segment above.

James Corden Reveals He Once Spanked Donald Trump’s Ass

James Corden says he once gave President Donald Trump a bit of a spanking. Literally.

On Tuesday, the “Late Late Show” host recounted to his guests Kerry Washington and Alec Baldwin how he smacked the current president’s derrière during a play he was performing in New York City in 2012.

“There used to be a part of the play and I’d bring someone up on stage, and I brought him up to move some set,” Corden told the actors. “I was spanking his ass, he bent over, I was spanking him.”

Corden also revealed that following Trump’s impromptu performance, the-then reality TV personality walked off into the wings and greeted everyone with handshakes.

The display was enough for Corden’s stage manager to suggest that Trump “thought he was the president of the United States.”

Corden’s revelation prompted Baldwin, who’s portrayed Trump on “Saturday Night Live” to great effect in recent months, to reveal he thought the president would loosen up a little following his election win.

“He used to be very playful and funny. I don’t know what’s with him now,” Baldwin said.

“When he won, I thought he’d relax and be more generous and it seems like he won but he acts like he lost. He’s very bitter now.” 

While Corden did not name the play he was starring in when he spanked Trump, it was likely to be the Broadway hit “One Man, Two Guvnors” in which he starred in 2012 and for which he won a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play.

Stephen Colbert Takes Aim At Donald Trump’s Nuclear Arsenal Ambitions

Stephen Colbert picked apart President Donald Trump’s desire to ramp up America’s nuclear arsenal on Friday.

The “Late Show” host first poked fun at the way in which the commander in chief said Thursday that he wanted to make the U.S. the “top of the pack” when it came to nukes.

“Not sure if he means top dog or leader of the pack,” quipped Colbert, “but either way, he is not the sharpest knife on the Christmas tree.”

Taking on a more serious tone, Colbert called a new proliferation of nuclear weapons a “terrifying prospect” — coming as it did following years of “careful” decommissioning.

“It’s like the Cold War all over again,” the host said. “But this time everyone’s on Russia’s side.”

John Oliver Perfectly Explains Trump’s ‘Weird’ Relationship With Putin

President Donald Trump has repeatedly shown admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin, even as his campaign’s alleged ties to Russia have come under scrutiny. 

“There is no hard proof yet of direct links between Trump himself and Russia,” John Oliver pointed out on HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” on Sunday. “But he does have a noticeably soft spot for both the country and its leader.”

Oliver then played a montage of clips showing Trump saying how good it would be to get along with Russia.

“It’s a bit weird,” Oliver said. “You’ve been objectively nicer to Vladimir Putin than you have to Meryl Streep.”

Oliver spent much of the segment looking at how Putin treats his enemies, launched a vigorous defense of the United States and then created a warning for Trump ― in the form of a techno song.

Seth Meyers Addresses That Time Jimmy Fallon Rubbed Trump’s Head

It was the hair tousle heard ‘round the world.

Last year, Jimmy Fallon had then-presidential candidate Donald Trump on his show, and rather than ask meaningful questions, the “Tonight Show” host messed up Trump’s hair.

People were infuriated, reportedly “justifiably infuriated.” Some even said Fallon humanizing the candidate got Trump elected.

Seth Meyers and Fallon addressed the controversy on Wednesday’s “Tonight Show.” 

After discussing Meyers’ contentious history with President Trump (the “Late Night” host continually calls out Trump in his “Closer Look” segment, he ripped The Donald apart during the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and the pair even played a quarrelsome father and son in a 2004 “SNL” sketch), Fallon brought up Tousle-Gate.

“We had him on the show, and I messed his hair up,” said Fallon.

“No, I didn’t hear about that,” joked Meyers.

Meyers then went on to say he was “insulted” by the reaction and mad that people claimed Fallon was the reason Trump won.

“I am the reason he won,” Meyers said. “I made fun of him in 2011. That’s the night he decided to run. I kicked the hornet’s nest. You just rubbed a hornet’s head.”

He continued, “Look, it’s not the outcome I wanted, but it’s history. I got a man elected president. I want my points.”

This weekend, Meyers is being honored at the 2017 HRC Greater New York Gala for bringing attention to “discriminatory legislation targeting LGBTQ people across the country.”

It’s an HRC Equality Award, not “points.” But it’ll have to do.

”The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.

Kellyanne Conway Defends Trump’s Attack Against Nordstrom — By Advertising Ivanka’s Products

White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway defended President Donald Trump attacking Nordstrom for dropping his daughter’s fashion line, telling Americans on Thursday to “go buy Ivanka’s stuff.”

Trump had gone after Nordstrom the day before, complaining that the store had stopped selling his daughter’s merchandise and that she “has been treated so unfairly.” His tweet about the subject, which was soon retweeted by the official White House Twitter account, immediately raised further ethical concerns about Trump’s presidency and his family’s businesses.

Conway essentially turned her Thursday morning appearance on Fox News into an infomercial, defending Ivanka Trump as “an incredibly creative, talented woman” and talking about buying the brand’s products. 

“I do find it ironic that you have got some executives all over the internet bragging about what they have done to her and her line, and yet, they are using the most prominent woman in Donald Trump’s, you know, most prominent his daughter, using her, who has been a champion for women empowerment of women in the workplace, to get to him,” Conway said. “I think people could see through that. Go buy Ivanka’s stuff! I hate shopping, and I will go get some myself today.”

“It is just a wonderful line. I own some of it,” she added. “I fully, I’m going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online.”

In doing so, Conway may have violated a rule stating that federal officials cannot use public office to sell products.

“An employee shall not use or permit the use of his Government position or title or any authority associated with his public office to endorse any product, service or enterprise,” the law states

The Trump administration has refused to address the numerous conflicts of interest that create the appearance that the president and his family could profit from his position.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Wednesday sidestepped questions about the ethics of Trump’s statement, claiming it was justified because Nordstrom’s decision to pull Ivanka Trump’s merchandise was “a direct attack on his policies in her name” and that the president “has every right to stand up for his family.”

Nordstrom has said that the decision to drop the fashion line was related to low sales, not in protest of the Trump administration’s policies.

Stephen Colbert Calls ‘Bulls–t’ On Trump’s Continued Voter Fraud Claims

If it smells like a turd and looks like a turd, it might just be President Donald Trump’s voter fraud claims.

In his recent interview with Bill O’Reilly, President Trump continued expressing his belief in rampant voter fraud despite an alarming lack of evidence. While that seems so perplexing that it’d be hard for many to put into words, Stephen Colbert did his best.

“This kind of accusation is called ― and I don’t want to get too technical here ― bullshit,” Colbert said.

The “Late Show” host went on to say that “the largest investigation of voter impersonation ever found just 31 incidents out of a billion ballots cast,” referring to a 2014 Washington Post report that looked at U.S. elections since 2000.

So what do we make of Trump’s claim that 3 million people voted for Hillary Clinton illegally? Colbert crunched the numbers and has an answer for that, too …

Bruce Springsteen Takes Powerful Stance Amid Trump’s Immigration Ban

Bruce Springsteen didn’t shy away from sending a political message at his concert in Adelaide, Australia, on Monday, just days after President Donald Trump unveiled the administration’s controversial immigration ban.

On Friday, Trump announced an executive order barring citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the United States for three months. The move erupted in protests at airports and elsewhere over the weekend, and not surprisingly, caught the interest of The Boss.

“America is a land of immigrants,” he said during the concert. “This is fundamentally un-American. This is a song about immigrants.” Springsteen then went straight into the song, “American Land,” with the crowd exploding in cheers, according to Australia’s Herald Sun.

The song features the lyrics: 

I docked at Ellis Island in the city of light and spire
I wandered to the valley of red-hot steel and fire
We made the steel that built the cities with the sweat of our two hands
We made our home in the American land

That wasn’t the only political mention of the night. While singing “Land of Hope and Dreams,” Springsteen changed the lyrics to include: “This train carries immigrants.”

The New Jersey rocker’s latest comments come on the heels of remarks he made about the Women’s March on Washington at another concert in Australia. 

His words also came at the same time as the SAG Awards, where many celebrities spoke up about the ban both on the red carpet and in speeches.

Trump’s Visa Ban May Keep Nominated Iranian Director From Attending Oscars

Asghar Farhadi, whose film “The Salesman” is vying for a best foreign-language film Academy Award, may not be able to enter the United States for the Feb. 26 ceremony.

Academy Calls Possible Effect Of Trump’s Ban On Foreign Nominees ‘Extremely Troubling’

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, responding on Saturday to reports that filmmaker Asghar Farhadi could miss the the 89th Academy Awards due to President Donald Trump’s executive order blocking millions of people from several majority-Muslim countries, called Farhadi’s possible absence “extremely troubling.”

Farhadi, who won an Oscar in 2012 for his film “A Separation,” was born and lives in Iran, one of seven nations from which Trump has barred immigrants and visitors to the U.S. for at least 90 days. The Academy Awards air Feb. 26. 

In a statement provided to The Huffington Post on Saturday, an Academy spokesperson said that the group stands for the “human rights of all people” regardless of borders or religion. Farhadi, meanwhile, has yet to comment on the matter.

“The Academy celebrates achievement in the art of filmmaking, which seeks to transcend borders and speak to audiences around the world, regardless of national, ethnic, or religious differences,” the statement reads. “As supporters of filmmakers ― and the human rights of all people ― around the globe, we find it extremely troubling that Asghar Farhadi, the director of the Oscar-winning film from Iran ‘A Separation,’ along with the cast and crew of this year’s Oscar-nominated film ‘The Salesman,’ could be barred from entering the country because of their religion or country of origin.”

Farhadi is nominated again this year in the best foreign language film category for “The Salesman,” which follows an Iranian couple starring in a local production of Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman.”

Trita Parsi, the president of the National Iranian American Council, a nonprofit that promotes diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Iran, was the first to speak out on Farhadi’s possible banning. The Tribeca Film Festival, which awarded Farhadi Best Narrative Feature in 2009 for his film “About Elly,” issued a similar statement, calling the situation “heartbreaking and unacceptable.”

One of the stars of “The Salesman,” Iranian actress Taraneh Alidoosti, spoke out earlier this week in anticipation of Trump’s executive order about boycotting this year’s ceremony.

“Trump’s visa ban for Iranians and others is a racist move and unacceptable,” she wrote on social media in Arabic and English. “Whether this will include a cultural event or not, I won’t attend the #AcademyAwards 2017 in protest.”

In his 2012 Oscar acceptance speech for “A Separation,” Farhadi emphasized that the divide between the U.S. and Iran is fueled by politicians, not the people. He spoke about what the Academy’s recognition meant to Iranians watching at home. 

“At this time, many Iranians all over the world are watching us and I imagine them to be very happy,” he said. “They are happy not just because of an important award or a film or a filmmaker, but because at the time when talk of war, intimidation and aggression is exchanged between politicians, the name of their country Iran is spoken here through her glorious culture, a rich and ancient culture that has been hidden under the heavy dust of politics.”

“I proudly offer this award to the people of my country,” he went on, “a people who respect all cultures and civilizations despite hostility and resentment.”

In response to Trump’s executive order, the Iranian Foreign Ministry released a statement on Saturday that prohibits U.S. citizens from entering the country. Calling Trump’s ban an “open affront against the Muslim world and the Iranian nation in particular,” the action signals a further deterioration of ties between the two nations. 

The Huffington Post has reached out to Farhadi’s representatives and will update this post accordingly.

‘Spinal Tap’ Spoof Of Donald Trump’s ABC Interview Turns It Up To 11

Donald Trump’s first television interview as president has received a glorious “Spinal Tap” makeover.

BuzzFeed editor Jesse McLaren dubbed audio from the satirical 1984 rockumentary’s iconic “Eleven” scene over Wednesday’s footage of Trump discussing the size of the crowds at his inauguration with ABC News anchor David Muir.

And the resulting clip, which McLaren posted to Twitter on Thursday, is hilarious:

McLaren said the inspiration for the parody came from filmmaker BenDavid Grabinski, who posted a joke on the same theme to Twitter.

Watch the clip above, and see the scene from the original movie below:

One Of Iran’s Biggest Movie Stars Is Boycotting The Oscars Over Trump’s Visa Ban

Iranian actress Taraneh Alidoosti, star of the Oscar-nominated film “The Salesman,” announced Thursday morning that she had decided to boycott the 89th Academy Awards next month due to President Trump’s “racist” ban on Iranian visas

“Trump’s visa ban for Iranians and others is a racist move and unacceptable,” she wrote on multiple social media channels. “Whether this will include a cultural event or not, I won’t attend the #AcademyAwards 2017 in protest.”

Alidoosti’s announcement comes one day after reports surfaced that the Trump administration planned to stop all visa applications for a month from seven countries in Africa and the Middle East, one of which is Iran. The news caused a near-immediate uproar among many in the Iranian-American community. 

Donald Trump is making good on the most shameful and discriminatory promises he made on the campaign trail,” the National Iranian American Council, a Washington-based non-profit, said in a statement on Wednesday. “He called for a Muslim ban and is now taking the first steps to implement one. This will not stand. The American people are better than this.”

Sometimes referred to as the “Natalie Portman of Iran,” Alidoosti, 33, is widely considered one of the best actresses in the country. Her film “The Salesman,” which was directed by Oscar-winning director Asghar Farhadi, follows the deteriorating relationship of a couple as they rehearse Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman.” It took home two awards at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival last May before it was nominated this week for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars.

Alidoosti faced a small controversy shortly after the Cannes Film Festival when she revealed a small tattoo on her arm that was some combination of the female Venus symbol and a raised fist. The actress later confirmed that the tattoo was a “woman power” symbol and that she considered herself a feminist.

Watching Al Gore’s New Climate Change Doc Before Trump’s Inauguration Was Eerie

When I first realized Donald Trump’s inauguration would occur on the second day of the Sundance Film Festival, I felt relief. Instead of being glued to the inevitable Twitter meltdown as our nation plunges into an alarming new era, I could embrace toasty theaters at an event where art prevails. Phew. 

Upon arriving in snowy Park City on Thursday, the rose-color glasses I’d donned felt a bit more pallid. Reality had sunk in, and suddenly I wondered whether it was even appropriate to spend the weekend seeing movies while a new political order emerges in real time. Then I sat down for my first screening, “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” and those glasses lost their focus altogether. 

“An Inconvenient Sequel” is Al Gore’s follow-up to “An Inconvenient Truth,” the Oscar-winning documentary that in 2006 electrified the debate surrounding climate change. “Truth,” a showcase for Gore’s PowerPoint lectures about the horrors of global warming, was an exercise in apprehension. “Fix this now, or we are doomed,” the movie screamed. Many, thankfully, listened. So many, in fact, that “An Inconvenient Sequel” is brimming with hope, sort of.

Now, listen. I’m a movie journalist. I can’t pretend to write this as a climate-change sage of any kind. But, as science-y as these documentaries are, they are surprisingly easy to understand, especially in tone. (Credit this time around is owed to directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, whose film reveals more about Gore than Davis Guggenheim managed in “An Inconvenient Truth.”) Yes, weather-related catastrophes have continued at frightening rates; just look at the recent floodings in Florida and Louisiana, or the shrinking Manhattan coastline predicted in “Truth.” But the sequel praises the world’s remarkable strides over the past 11 years, chiefly 2015’s United Nations conference in Paris, which resulted in a wide-ranging agreement to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and prevent Earth’s temperatures from continuing to rise.

A sense of achievement pervades the movie ― and then, right as promise for the health of our planet swells, Trump gets elected. In the final scene, Gore sits at his laptop, watching the president-elect call climate change an “expensive hoax” and vow to withdraw from the Paris accord

When I checked my phone after “An Inconvenient Sequel” ended, another New York Times push notification about Trump’s links to Russian president Vladimir Putin had come though. More of the same. The next morning, after the former reality TV star was inaugurated, Twitter informed me that the Obama administration’s climate-change page had been removed from the White House website.

Suddenly the outcomes Gore and his allies had effected seemed lost to what we call the “transition of power.” What a way to begin Sundance, usually a joyful occasion about celebrating creativity.

At Thursday night’s premiere of the aptly titled Netflix dark comedy “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore,” Park City mayor Jack Thomas spoke of his town’s own efforts to combat climate change. Watching Thomas speak, it was hard to believe so much of the world beyond this little festival bubble would aggressively protest. 

On Friday morning, as journalists poured out of a press screening of “The Incredible Jessica James,” talk turned to Trump. I congregated outside the theater with a cabal of journalists, many of whom adored the movie (myself included), particularly because it offered comforting counter-programming to the inaugural speech we’d just avoided.

Starring Jessica Williams, “Jessica James” borrows familiar post-breakup romantic-comedy beats, but its voice is distinctly modern. Fictional Jessica is an aspiring New York playwright with a progressive worldview that implicitly opposes much of Trump’s rhetoric. At her younger sister’s baby shower, for example, the titular marriage-averse millennial gifts a self-illustrated picture book called Subverting the ABCs of the Patriarchal Paradigm.

The movie provided a charming 85-minute reminder of the inclusive landscape we assume Hillary Clinton’s presidency would have fostered. And then, as we stragglers went our separate ways, it was back to reality. The bubble had burst. Trump was our president. (Jessica Williams 2020.)

Less than 24 hours after the festival’s start, Sundance is in a weird mood. Yet, just like most of this fearful country, those of us in Park City must decide how to move forward. In “An Inconvenient Sequel,” Gore recalls having to do the same when the Supreme Court decided George W. Bush would be our president, and look how much progress Gore encouraged in the years since. If there’s relief from the chaos in these Utah mountains, maybe that’s OK. 

“An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” opens in theaters June 28. “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore” hits Netflix on Feb. 24. “The Incredible Jessica James” is hoping to secure theatrical distribution at Sundance.

WATCH: Donald Trump’s Inauguration Is Streaming Live on PEOPLE

Donald Trump, the business mogul turned reality star who defied the odds to win the 2016 election, will be inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States on Friday.

PEOPLE is offer a live stream of the day’s events.

An estimated 800,00 people are expected to be in or around the Capitol for the swearing in of Trump and Vice President Mike Pence by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

Trump, 70, will place his hand on two copies of the Bible — one once owned by President Abraham Lincoln and the other a gift from his mother  — to take the oath of office before giving his inauguration speech.

The president-elect told reporters that his inaugural address will take a similar tone to his election night victory speech, and focus on joining the nation.

“They will be talking about uniting America, bringing American together. We are now in the post-politics, post-campaign season and that’s the messaging around this inaugural,” Boris Epshteyn, a spokesman for Trump’s inauguration committee, told CNN. “I’m expecting a great address … that talks to Americans about dreaming big, about making sure that we are a city on a hill one more time.”

Jackie Evancho, a 16-year-old classical singer who gained fame on America’s Got Talent in 2010, will sing the National Anthem at the ceremony. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the Missouri State University Chorale and the United States Marine Band will be also be performing.

Trump’s Inaugural Poem, Take Two

Tired of misogynist doggerel being passed off as inaugural poetry? Not ready to “come out for the Domhnall, the best of MacLeod”? Have we got the poem for you…

Drop trou for the Douchebag, ye white men and yobs,
Bend over for Trump, who promised ye jobs!
With bluster and lies he came down from his tower
To give this poor country a golden hot shower.

Now the cry has gone up with a cheer from the Klan:
“Hurrah for the Douchebag that walks like a man!”
When pussies run riot and none dare approach ’em,
Snatch-grabber-in-chief will step forward and grope ’em

We’ll don our white sheets and flash a bright smile,
At the man whom America will flash a “Sieg hell!
For, he’ll never forget us, we men of white pride,
Who think equal rights will bring white genocide.

When access to health care threatened our nation,
And Planned Parenthood gave free sex education,
As Muslims from Kenya crossed our fair waters,
While Mexican rapists assaulted our daughters

The flyover rednecks with expressions so sour
Entrusted a con man with ultimate power!
The Douchebag’s a rapist while others just leer,
Mere cucks who neglect their male rights out of fear.

2017-01-17-1484688030-8405083-donaldtrumpdouchebag.jpg

A buyer of buildings, never paying his men,
He bankrupts his business and starts up again.
The racists rise up and cheer for his cause,
Laughing with glee while he scoffs still more laws.

No friend to the migrant from both far and near,
He slanders the worthy, and revels in fear,
No melanin darker than whitebread is welcome,
They’re Muslim or Arab — no need to help ’em!

The Stormfront is ready with lots of fake news
To wrest our fair country from Kenyans and Jews!
No college for us, what need of book learnin’
With so many crosses out there that need burnin’?

We’ll get rid of tenure, shut down lefty classes,
Make history just for the blessed white masses
Now we closed of mind shall all pledge our belief,
In the might of the Douchebag, our Fuhrer in chief!

The black men, gunned down by cops year by year,
The poor men, the sick men, the trans and the queer,
Those people, the ones with the pussies and tits,
You know, they’re nasty, they pee when they sit?

What’s they’re name? I forget. What’re the odds?
Oh, right, it’s the babes, it’s the chicks, it’s the broads!
The Douchebag respects them, defends them with might!
If only they’d shut up and vote for Alt-Right!

In short, he will save us from all that we fear.
He’ll nuke ’em and bomb ’em right into next year!
So merry Trumpmas to all, and to all a good night!
When you’re done with America, please turn out the light…

As long as Donald Trump and Republicans appear to be without the replacement part of their plan to “repeal and replace” Obamacare, “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert figures they should go one step further. That’s right, don’t bother with coverage at all.

As a graphic popped up that read “Avoidable Care Act,” Colbert said Monday, “Just make it illegal for your doctor to tell you your diagnosis. That way, you’ll never need insurance as far as you know.”

Wait, Stephen, the GOP has tried how many times to vote away the healthcare system that happens to treat millions of Trump supporters?

‘I Won’t Apologize’: Toby Keith Defends His Decision to Perform at Donald Trump’s Inauguration

“I don’t apologize for performing for our country or military,” Keith said in a statement to EW. “I performed at events for previous presidents Bush and Obama and over 200 shows in Iraq and Afghanistan for the USO.”

Keith’s performance at a concert at the Lincoln Memorial on Jan. 19 was announced Friday; he will be joined at the “Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration” by 3 Doors Down, Lee Greenwood, Jennifer Holliday, The Piano Guys, and the Frontmen of Country.

It Looks Like Andrea Bocelli Won’t Perform At Trump’s Inauguration

Just when you thought it was time to break your Andrea Bocelli CDs in two, the opera singer is reportedly not performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony, despite earlier reports. 

Whether Bocelli was ever officially slated to perform is unclear.

According to Page Six, the singer bowed to backlash from fans and is backing out of the gig.

“Bocelli said there was no way he’d take the gig . . . he was ‘getting too much heat’ and he said no,” a source told the outlet.

In response to reports, Presidential Inaugural Committee chairman Tom Barrack told CNBC Tuesday morning that the president-elect had not asked the opera singer to perform at the Jan. 20 ceremony. Barrack claims that Bocelli and his wife, who are “friends” with Trump, offered to consider performing “if it would be helpful.”

Last week it was announced that Jackie Evancho, a 16-year-old singer best known for appearing on “America’s Got Talent” at age 10, would perform the national anthem at the inauguration.

Shortly after the announcement, Evancho’s mother told TMZ that Bocelli would also perform. Later, TMZ clarified that she’d “jumped the gun” on the announcement, as the 58-year-old singer had not formally committed to the engagement. 

In November, Elton John also had to deny rumors that he was performing at Trump’s inauguration. The president-elect often played the singer’s music on the campaign trail without the British singer’s approval. 

“I’ve met Donald Trump, he was very nice to me, it’s nothing personal, his political views are his own, mine are very different, I’m not a Republican in a million years,” he said in an interview with the Guardian in February. “Why not ask Ted fucking Nugent? Or one of those fucking country stars? They’ll do it for you.” 

The Huffington Post has reached out to reps for Trump and Bocelli and will update this post accordingly.

Sylvester Stallone ‘Flattered’ But Not Interested In Trump’s Chairman Offer

Sylvester Stallone revealed Sunday that he would turn down a position in Donald Trump’s cabinet. 

The president-elect was reportedly considering the actor for chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency tasked with funding artistic endeavors that was founded by Congress in 1965.

“I am incredibly flattered to have been suggested to be involved with the National Endowment of the Arts,” Stallone said in a statement to People. “However I believe I could be more effective by bringing national attention to returning military personnel in an effort to find gainful employment, suitable housing and financial assistance these heroes respectfully deserve.”

The statement leaves room for the suggestion that Stallone might be willing to work with Trump’s administration if there were a suitable position for the 70-year-old actor. However, in an interview with Variety in January, the actor ― who denied identifying as a Republican ― voiced concerns about Trump’s leadership skills. 

“I love Donald Trump,” the actor said. “He’s a great Dickensian character. You know what I mean? There are certain people like Arnold, Babe Ruth, that are bigger than life. But I don’t know how that translates [laughs] to running the world.”

Trump’s Chief Strategist Steve Bannon Is Making Millions Off ‘Seinfeld’

As if Donald Trump’s upset presidential victory wasn’t a bitter enough pill to swallow, he’s also officially tainted America’s favorite sitcom “Seinfeld” by appointing Steve Bannon — executive chairman of Breitbart News, a site that traffics in white nationalism — as his new White House chief strategist

Bannon has had his hands in many different business ventures over the years, but one of his most lucrative deals was helping broker an agreement between the company that produced “Seinfeld,” Rob Reiner’s Castle Rock Entertainment, and Ted Turner. 

In order to compete with rival film studios, Reiner and company made a deal with Westinghouse Electric in 1989 for around $ 48 million in exchange for 15 percent of the company. Years later, when Castle Rock was sold to Turner, Westinghouse hired Bannon’s company, Bannon & Co., to advise on how to proceed with their share of Castle Rock. 

“Part of the deal was that Westinghouse could either sell or hold on to whatever TV series we had,” Reiner told The Daily Beast in a recent interview. “At the time we had eight pilots, and one of them was ‘Seinfeld.’ We didn’t know if it was going to be successful or not. But as payment, Bannon advised them to stay in and hold on to their profit participation in the series, and Westinghouse said, ‘Well, if you think it’s so good, why don’t you take a piece of this instead of us giving you a fee?’ And apparently that’s what Bannon did, and he wound up with a small piece of Seinfeld that he’s had forever.”

 

At the time of the deal, “Seinfeld” was only in its relatively low-rated third season, so no one expected the sitcom to become the cultural phenomenon we know today. But when the series was sold into syndication and nabbed the top spot in the Nielsen ratings, all involved, including Bannon, struck gold. 

As The Wrap notes, if Bannon owned even 1 percent of the estimated 3.1 billion “Seinfeld” accrues in reruns, according to The Financial Times, then Bannon & Co. has probably earned around $ 31 million since the series was cancelled in 1998. 

Bannon has reportedly since used these royalties to fund a bevy of endeavors like films such as “Fire from the Heartland: The Awakening of the Conservative Woman” and the ironically titled Sarah Palin documentary, “The Undefeated,” as well as Clinton Cash, a book indicting the Clinton Foundation for corrupt practices.

“It’s crazy,” Reiner said. “When I first heard about it, it made me sick. It makes me sick. Because I had no idea. I didn’t know who he was, or that he was representing Westinghouse. So there you have it. I think The Huffington Post had the headline right: ‘Trump Hires a White Supremacist.’”

Stephen Colbert Drops The Mic On Trump’s List Of Enemies

He’s making a list, checking it twice, gonna find out who’s a nasty woman or nice.

In another lengthy segment on Donald Trump, “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert addressed the Trump campaign’s supposed list of enemies on Thursday.

“They went from zero to Nixon in no time flat,” said Colbert.

After playing a clip of the campaign’s director of African-American outreach, Omarosa Manigault, saying, “Every critic, every detractor will have to bow down to President Trump,” bow is exactly what Colbert did.

“It was Sam Bee and Seth Meyers! They’re the ones who said all those horrible things about you. I was just joking the whole time. All hail our glorious leader! Giant hands! You’ve got giant hands! You’re gonna be great!” said Colbert before adding, “Is what a pussy would say.”

The audience lost it and started chanting Colbert’s name. Though, they were probably just relieved he wasn’t actually saying those things. If he were, a certain someone might just try to grab him.

Friday Talking Points — Trump’s Immigration Roundup

Another week has gone by, and Donald Trump remains the Republican frontrunner in the presidential nomination race. We’ve noticed that all the inside-the-Beltway pundits who so confidently predicted Trump’s imminent and inevitable downfall are now slowly starting to revisit their predictions. This is making them extremely nervous, of course. Some are still finding solace in the “Trump’s going to say something any day now that will sink him like a stone” way of thinking, but their numbers are getting smaller as time goes by and Trump defies political gravity once again.

Last weekend, Trump released his very first policy paper. It was, naturally, on immigration (Trump’s signature issue). Reduced to tweet-length, this policy could be summed up as: “Build a big wall. Repeal birthright citizenship and 14th amendment. Round them all up and send them home.” Of course, it was immediately popular with all of Trump’s supporters.

The rest of the Republican presidential field, once again, was caught scrambling to respond. All of the other Republicans running for the highest office in the land routinely quake in their boots whenever Trump opens his mouth, because nobody’s yet come up with any great ideas as to how to respond. Take Trump on directly? That hasn’t worked out so well for the three notable candidates who have tried it (Rand Paul, Rick Perry, and Lindsey Graham), who are all polling below five percent. Agree with Trump no matter what comes out of his mouth (in the hopes of picking up all his supporters if he stumbles)? That’s working pretty well for Ted Cruz, which is why Scott Walker is now giving it a try. Ignore him completely? That’s what Jeb! Bush would really like to do, but again this hasn’t worked out so well for him (as he watched his own poll numbers sink into single digits).

So far, most of the candidates have at least tentatively supported parts of Trump’s immigration plan. More and more of them are just throwing up their hands and saying “OK, let’s build a giant wall, what the heck.” This week, at least half of the Republican field has expressed support for overturning birthright citizenship, which would require an amendment to the United States Constitution (since it’s expressly part of the Constitution, in the Fourteenth Amendment). This is now the default Republican position, in fact. I guess conservatives only revere certain parts of the Constitution, even though they all carry a copy around with them in their pocket, as a talisman.

Jeb! Bush once again proved he is just as clumsy at being a politician as his brother, in response to Trump. Jeb! was trying to distance himself from Trump’s position on birthright citizenship, but then he royally stepped in it by using the phrase “anchor babies.” When called on the offensiveness of the term, Bush doubled down and tried to defend it, while he tried to channel some sort of weak-tea version of Trump taking on political correctness. “Anchor babies,” Bush said, is a term Democrats use, to beat up on Republicans. He didn’t explain how Democrats can only do so after Republicans use the term, of course. But watching him flounder around answering all the questions must be painful for all those folks who have already tossed over $ 100 million into Bush’s campaign chest. This is really the guy who is going to vanquish Trump? Hey, good luck with that, Establishment Republicans!

Outside the presidential race, the rabid Republicans on the airwaves are pushing the issue even harder than Trump (hard as that is to even imagine). One radio host is essentially calling not just for repealing the Fourteenth Amendment, but also that pesky Thirteenth Amendment as well — you know, the one that outlaws slavery. Seriously. His position is to give all undocumented immigrants a 60-day warning, and then round them up and stick them in concentration camps. They would then “become property of the state,” after which the state would “start to extort or exploit or indenture” their labor. When a caller pointed out that it “sounds an awful lot like slavery,” the host responded: “Well, what’s wrong with slavery?”

Yes, this is the state of the Republican Party today, brought to you by none other than Donald Trump. Mitt Romney winning 27 percent of the Latino vote may turn out to be a high point for the party, which could put the White House out of Republicans’ reach for the foreseeable future, at least until they purge this sort of nativist nonsense from their ranks. Which doesn’t seem likely any time soon, of course. Things are probably going to get a lot worse before they get any better.

In other amusing news from the Republican campaign trail, Bobby Jindal has apparently been reduced to showing Planned Parenthood videos to crowds on his lawn (no, really), and Marco Rubio hit a kid in the face with a football (which was, of course, caught on camera for everyone’s amusement).

We’re going to skip over the Democratic campaign trail news for the moment, because we are going to address it all in the awards sections.

President Obama is spending his summer whipping (and counting) congressional votes for his Iran nuclear deal. When Congress returns from their excessive six-week summer vacation, they’ll be voting whether to disapprove the deal or not. If they put such a disapproval on Obama’s desk, he’ll need to defeat a veto override in at least one house of Congress for the deal to go through. Most Washington wonks think he’ll be able to clear this bar, but there is even one interesting possibility few have yet noticed: Obama may not even have to veto anything, because Republicans may not be able to pass it in the Senate. There are currently 54 Republicans in the Senate, plus two Democrats who have said they’ll vote their disapproval of the deal. But 60 votes will be needed, meaning Republicans still need four more Democrats. As of right now, there are 13 Democratic senators who have not indicated either their support for the deal or their disapproval. If 10 of them ultimately vote to support Obama, then the disapproval bill will die in the Senate, and no veto will even be necessary. It’s a fairly long shot at the moment, but the possibility does exist. As we get closer to the vote, we’ll be paying a lot more attention to the whip counts, pro and con.

And finally, in amusing marijuana news, Novak Djokovic — ranked number one in the world of tennis — had to complain to the umpire in not just one but two recent matches in Montreal. His problem? The clouds of pot smoke drifting over the court. From the story:


“Somebody’s getting high,” he says to a smiling umpire. “No, honestly… The whole stadium smells.”

Djokovic later makes a toking gesture as if he were holding a joint.

Who knew Canadian tennis fans were such stoners? C’mon, guys — bring a brownie to the match instead, eh?

 

Most Impressive Democrat of the Week

We’ve got two Honorable Mention awards to hand out before we get to the main event. Both of these go to Democratic presidential candidates, for different reasons.

First up, we have Martin O’Malley, who deserves credit for his plan to expand Social Security, rather than cut it or raise the retirement age. His plan might be called a timid version of the “scrap the cap” idea, since he would impose Social Security payroll taxes on incomes above $ 250,000 for the first time — which would go a long way towards ending the regressive nature of this tax (which I detailed, with charts, a few years ago). O’Malley is to be applauded for being so specific in his plan, and for beginning to address the problem of the income cap on the payroll tax. However, his plan leaves a “doughnut hole” between roughly $ 120,000 of income and $ 250,000. So someone making $ 10 million a year would pay roughly the same tax rate as a nurse or a firefighter, but someone making $ 250,000 a year would pay less than half that rate. There’s no real mathematical reason for this regressive doughnut hole, but there is a political one — the portion of Americans making between $ 100,000 and $ 250,000 a year is one of the biggest groups who donate money to politicians. That’s really the only reason for leaving such a hole in what by all rights should be — at the very least — a flat tax rate on all income. Still, O’Malley’s plan goes further than other candidates have committed to, so he does deserve some applause.

I wrote about this earlier in the week, but Hillary Clinton deserves at least an Honorable Mention for how she answered the Black Lives Matter protesters (the video of their meeting was publicly released this week). Clinton pretty much agrees with the group in principle and goes out of her way to validate their positions, but she also challenges them to come up with some solid policy proposals that Democratic politicians can get behind. Clinton did an excellent job being both respectful and pragmatic, at least in our opinion.

Which brings us to the winner of the Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week. We’re not entirely sure this is within the boundaries of our own rules (since they don’t exactly claim party membership), but rules are made to be bent at times. But the Black Lives Matter folks have finally come up with a very solid and reasonable policy platform (call it an “agenda” or a “list of demands” or whatever else, if you’d like).

The policy agenda is called Campaign Zero and includes such things as requiring body cameras on all police, better police training, and much stronger community oversight of all police. The list is an excellent one, and the policies should be embraced by all Democratic candidates for president as well as all progressive voters.

The Black Lives Matter movement has been controversial on the campaign trail, notably for disrupting Democratic presidential candidates by taking over speeches. They’ve always had a brilliant tactic, in the world of political theater. After all, they’re protesting police violence against black people, so what are Democrats supposed to do — call in the cops to physically remove Black Lives Matter from their speeches? That would reinforce the point the activists are making, and it would make the candidate look bad. It’s a “Catch-22” sort of tactic, because neither siccing the cops on them nor allowing them to completely hijack a campaign event is a very good outcome.

But what they’ve been missing, even with such a brilliant tactic, is any sort of overall strategy. Sure, you can grab the microphone and address the crowd, but if all you do after being given the microphone is to insult your audience and the candidate, then you’re not going to gain much support. Many people (I am one of them, for the record) have called on Black Lives Matter to come up with an agenda so that their natural allies — Democratic politicians and the Democratic base — can support the movement in a concrete way, instead of just being annoyed by their tactics.

This is precisely the point Hillary Clinton was making in the video, and we are glad to see Black Lives Matter respond in such a constructive and forward-looking fashion. This is part of what killed Occupy Wall Street — not being able to agree on much of any plan for change — and we firmly believe that the Black Lives Movement will find that their movement will in no way be limited by having a clear agenda, but in fact that it will grow as more and more people agree with and openly support the items listed by Campaign Zero.

So, whether they identify as Democrats or not, the leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement who put together Campaign Zero are more than worthy of this week’s Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week award.

Most Disappointing Democrat of the Week

Hillary Clinton had a rough week. Perhaps we’re guilty of piling on, but we’re going to add a Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week to her problems.

Much like Donald Trump, the Hillary Clinton email server scandal is not going away any time soon. We’ve still got months of drip, drip, drip, as each new group of emails is released to the media and each development with the server itself plays out. The F.B.I. now has Hillary’s server as well as the backup her lawyer had been holding onto for her. As many have pointed out, “F.B.I. investigation” is not something any political candidate wants to see in the headlines, while running for office.

Clinton, so far, hasn’t done a very good job of addressing the issue, either. She held a very brief presser, got into a spat with a Fox News reporter, tried a silly joke to brush the whole thing off, and then left after about five minutes. The Washington Post has a rundown of five mistakes Clinton made during this appearance, but they missed one big one. You might call it “orange is the new orange.”

Now, we realize (before we even explain that) that politicians shouldn’t really be criticized on how they look in the first place, and in the second place, female politicians especially shouldn’t be subject to snark about what they’re wearing. Hillary Clinton has faced this time and time again. Still, whose idea was it to have Hillary Clinton appear in front of the press to answer questions about an F.B.I. investigation wearing the same shade of orange as prison jumpsuits? That is just breathtaking sartorial stupidity.

Hillary Clinton needs to take a few days off from campaigning. She needs to go on a retreat with her husband, in fact. During this time, Bill should coach Hillary relentlessly on how to successfully brush a political issue aside. There’s a reason why Barack Obama joked at the 2012 Democratic National Convention that he should appoint Bill Clinton “Secretary of Explainin’ Stuff.” He is a master at it, in fact — the best America has seen since Ronald Reagan. And Hillary — obviously — needs a little coaching from Bill on how to handle these things.

Start by laying out your viewpoint of the situation, in as simple terms as you can manage. Explain the motivations of those making claims of scandal. Then end with a rhetorical flourish in an attempt to lay the issue to rest. Hillary tried to do so, with her “wipe it down with a cloth” joke, but it fell awfully flat. She needs a lot of practice with Bill, and her campaign should devote a few days to it. Lock them both in a cabin in the woods, and let Bill school Hillary on how to deal with scandal and crisis. At this point, it couldn’t hurt.

There are many Democrats — even some Bernie Sanders supporters — who feel deep down that Clinton will likely be the Democratic nominee and has a clear path to the White House next year. They just wish she was campaigning for it better, that’s all. Team Clinton has got to learn to shift gears smoother and how to respond quicker. Clinton proved she’s got a long way to go this week, which is why she’s getting the Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week award.

[Hillary Clinton is a private citizen, and we have a longstanding policy of not linking to campaign websites, so you’ll have to search her contact page on your own to let her know what you think, sorry.]

 

Friday Talking Points

Volume 358 (8/21/15)

The talking points this week were influenced, once again, by Donald Trumps magical mystery campaign, which sooner or later we’re just going to stop apologizing for. Hey, he is the Republican frontrunner!

We’ve got a few others mixed in, and two hilarious ones at the end, because we thought everybody could use a laugh after the past week of presidential politics.

 

1
   I support Campaign Zero

This one’s easy, for both Democratic candidates and voters.

“I strongly support the positive and constructive agenda Black Lives Matter has laid out, which they’re calling Campaign Zero. Their list has many excellent policy ideas which should be enacted at both the state and federal level. All police should have body cameras, because seeing is believing when it comes to what actually happens in confrontations. Police should be required to get much better training for conflict resolution, so the most violent response at their disposal isn’t always their first choice. There are many such ideas contained in the Campaign Zero platform, and I call on all Democrats to not only endorse this agenda but also to immediately begin working as hard as possible on enacting these changes across the United States.”

 

2
   Anchor babies!

To her credit, Hillary Clinton led in pushing back against Bush’s slip of the tongue.

“I’m sorry, but Jeb Bush was supposed to be some sort of moderate guy on both immigration and Latino issues. He’s married to a Mexican-American, after all, and speaks fluent Spanish. Previously, he has called for Republicans to avoid being intentionally offensive and to speak of immigrants in non-inflammatory terms. He used to be a voice of reason in a crowd of extremists. I guess now that his poll numbers are sinking like a rock, he’s decided that offending Latinos is the way to go. If Jeb’s not sure whether the term ‘anchor babies’ is offensive or not, I would suggest he ask a few members of his own family what they think about it.”

 

3
   Selective constitutional worship

This, from politicians who swear up and down their fealty to the Constitution?

“In the entire history of the United States, we have only ever amended the Constitution to restrict rights a single time — and Prohibition eventually had to be repealed by another amendment. Now Donald Trump and most of the rest of the Republicans running for president have come out in favor of overturning the Fourteenth Amendment because they don’t like one phrase in it. This amendment was passed because racists were insisting that people born in the United States — ex-slaves — were not citizens and therefore could never vote. Republicans today want to make it impossible for undocumented immigrants ever to be eligible for citizenship for the exact same reason — they never want these people to ever have a vote. And now they’re attacking the Constitution itself to ensure that only those children born on American soil whom they deem acceptable can be citizens. To do so, we’d have to pass only the second amendment to the Constitution to ever deny rights rather than expand them. This is just a bad idea all around.”

 

4
   Round them up? Really?

Pro-big government rears its ugly head in Republicanland, once again.

“So I see that Donald Trump is in favor of the biggest expansion of federal power ever, because his ’round them up and ship them home’ plan to deal with undocumented immigrants would change American society forever. We’d have to create an enormous federal police force who would then go around knocking on every door in American and demand to see ‘your papers, please.’ Those without proof of citizenship would be forcibly rounded up and shipped out. Experts estimate this effort — should any Congress be stupid enough to enact it — would take hundreds of billions of dollars and have to last at least two decades. So Trump is in favor of spending an enormous amount of money to pay for jack-booted federal agents to round everyone up and ship them off, by knocking on every door in the country. Sounds like an explosion of ‘big government’ and creating an enormous federal army to be used for domestic purposes to me. Funny, I always thought Republicans were against those things, on ideological grounds.”

 

5
   Rapists’ baby support

At times, we are accused of creating talking points that are nothing short of hyperbole. Last week, we ran one that might have fit into that category (scroll down to talking point number five). We’re going to repeat this talking point this week, with the addition of Mike Huckabee’s name, since he has now openly admitted exactly the attitude the talking point was referring to.

“An 11-year-old girl just gave birth in Paraguay. She was 10 when she was raped by her stepfather, but the government denied her mother’s request she be allowed an abortion. These are the real-world consequences of the position taken by many Republican presidential candidates, including Mike Huckabee. They want to outlaw abortion even in the case of rape and incest. That leads directly to 11-year-olds having to bear their stepfather’s child after being raped. Mike Huckabee openly admitted that he wants to see that sort of thing here. He actually said: ‘Let nobody be misled, a 10-year-old girl being raped is horrible, but does it solve a problem by taking the life of an innocent child?’ Yes, 11-year-old mothers forced to deal with their rapist’s baby for the rest of their lives is exactly what we can expect if Huckabee ever got his way on outlawing all abortion. No rape victim should ever be forced to bear her rapist’s baby. No 10-year-old should have to carry a baby to term against her will. Yet that is exactly what happens when abortion is outlawed.”

 

6
   Deez Nuts for president!

We normally wrap these up with one amusing final talking point. This week, we’re going to do two instead, just because.

“Have you seen the recent polling? A fake candidate named ‘Deez Nuts’ is polling at a surprisingly high level among voters. For some unfathomable reason a few state-level polls included ‘Deez Nuts’ in a few of the questions they asked poll respondents about, and he’s now getting nine percent in North Carolina, eight percent in Minnesota, and seven percent in Iowa! As the candidate explains: ‘I am a 15-year-old who filled out a form, had the campaign catch on fire, and am now putting up the best third-party numbers since Ross Perot.’ Right now his poll numbers are better than most of the Republican field, in fact. In a year when Donald Trump is the frontrunner, somehow it seems entirely appropriate that ‘Deez Nuts’ should be approaching second place in the race, don’t you think?”

 

7
   Limberbutt McCubbins for president!

And finally, one from the Democratic side.

“Deez Nuts isn’t the only amusing candidate out there. A self-proclaimed ‘Demo-cat’ feline candidate has also thrown his furry hat into the ring. That’s right, Limberbutt McCubbins is running for president, on a platform that includes legalizing both catnip and gay cat marriages. His campaign website and Facebook page boast some catchy campaign slogans, including ‘Meow is the time’ and ‘Together we cat.’ His owner states the main reason Limberbutt entered the race: ‘Me and my friends have begun to realize how easy it is to run for office, and have learned about the way the F.E.C. and campaign finance work. Not that we don’t want anyone to run, but I personally don’t think that if I’m applying to run for the most important position in the U.S.A., that I should be able to do it in 20 minutes. Or less.’ I don’t know about that, but I do know that if it came down to Limberbutt McCubbins in the general election, I’d certainly vote for Limberbutt over a lot of the hairballs running on the other side.”

Donald Trump’s Red Plastic Cups Are Ready For Your Next House Party

For Donald Trump, campaign buttons and yard signage just don’t cut it (though, worry not, he’s monetizing those, too). The 2016 Republican presidential hopeful is getting into crucial housewares, selling “campaign party cups” in his online store. The 16-ounce vessels closely resemble Solo cups, the plastic classics that college kids around the country use for drinking games like beer pong and flip cup. One can’t help but to think a fratty demographic may be the product’s main target.

While any house party host can pick up a 50-pack of Solo cups at Walmart for less than $ 8, a three-pack of Trump’s slogan-stamped cups cost $ 3.  

According to the product page, Trump’s cups are “proudly made in USA,” presumably in line with the candidate’s promise to “make America great again!” 

For supportive sippers who prefer drinking straight from the can, Trump is also selling American-made koozies to keep beverages cool while screaming his name. A 6-pack of these goes for $ 20.

Trump is not the only 2016 hopeful making the most of the Foodie Generation, offering culinary accessories with which supporters can decorate their kitchens or guzzle beer. Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has “Chillary” koozies available on her campaign site, as well as cookie cutters, pint glasses, coffee mugs and the “Grillary Clinton Spatula.” 

GOP candidate Jeb Bush, too, has turned to the kitchen to earn support. His $ 75 guacamole bowl – er, “Guaca Bowle” — looks like it will last for years to come, no matter who wins this race.

The Real Donald: Excerpts From Trump’s Books On Women, Marriage, Sex And More

Before he jumped into the presidential race and the media frenzy that comes with it, real estate mogul Donald Trump preferred to communicate with the American people via a more intimate medium — the simple written word.

The Huffington Post has reviewed nearly a dozen books by and/or about Trump, including one by John O’Donnell, a former executive in Trump’s business empire, and one by Tim O’Brien, a longtime journalist and former HuffPost editor. Reading through these works, which go back a full 25 years, one gets a better sense of the businessman’s macho persona, his taste for extravagance, his views about women and his rise to the top of the New York City social scene. All quotes are Trump’s words except where noted otherwise.


On marriage

“A good marriage is like negotiating an important deal: You have to consider all the factors, thoughtfully and thoroughly. If you were investing a large part of yourself and your fortune into a venture, believe me, you’d make sure you thought about it for a long time first. That’s how I see marriage. It’s serious, and it’s important. I don’t approach it any more haphazardly than I do a very important deal. In fact, considering the amount of deals I’ve made compared to the number of marriages I’ve had, I’d say I’m quite cautious about marriage. You should be, too.” (Think Like A Billionaire, Donald Trump with Meredith McIver, 2005)

*

“For a man to be successful he needs support at home, just like my father had from my mother, not someone who is always griping and bitching. When a man has to endure a woman who is not supportive and complains constantly about his not being home enough or not being attentive enough, he will not be very successful unless he is unable to cut the cord.” (The Art of the Comeback, Donald Trump with Kate Bohner, 1997)

“If he doesn’t lose the ballbreaker, his career will go nowhere.” (The Art of the Comeback


On prenuptial agreements

“There are basically three types of women and reactions. One is the good woman who very much loves her future husband, solely for himself, but refuses to sign the agreement on principle. I fully understand this, but the man should take a pass anyway and find someone else.” (The Art of the Comeback)

On women

“I was always of the opinion that aggression, sex drive, and everything that goes along with it was on the man’s part of the table, not the woman’s. As I grew older and witnessed life firsthand from a front-row seat at the great clubs, social events, and parties of the world — I have seen just about everything — I began to realize that women are far stronger than men. Their sex drive makes us look like babies. Some women try to portray themselves as being of the weaker sex, but don’t believe it for a minute.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“I remember attending a magnificent dinner being given by one of the most admired people in the world. I was seated next to a lady of great social pedigree and wealth. Her husband was sitting on the other side of the table, and we were having a very nice but extremely straight conversation. All of a sudden I felt her hand on my knee, then on my leg. She started petting me in all different ways. I looked at her and asked, ‘Is everything alright?’ I didn’t want to make a scene in a ballroom full of five hundred VIPs. The amazing part about her was who she was — one of the biggest of the big. She then asked me to dance, and I accepted. While we were dancing she became very aggressive, and I said, ‘Look, we have a problem. Your husband is sitting at that table, and so is my wife.’

‘Donald,’ she said, ‘I don’t care. I just don’t care. I have to have you, and I have to have you now.’ I told her that I’d call her, but she had to stop the behavior immediately. She made me promise, and I did. When I called I just called to say hello, and that was the end of that. But the level of aggression was unbelievable.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“One woman, who was socially prominent, was getting married, and I had bumped into her on Fifth Avenue while she was exchanging wedding gifts. I had my limousine nearby, and she asked if I could give her a ride back to her apartment on Park Avenue. I said absolutely, not even suspecting that within five seconds after the door closed she would be jumping on top of me wanting to get screwed. I said, ‘You’re getting married next week, and I’m going to your wedding.’

‘I don’t really care,’ she said. ‘ I never liked him that much anyway, and you know that.’ I was really in a quandary, because she is a truly great-looking and sexy woman.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“Women have one of the great acts of all time. The smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers. The person who came up with the expression ‘the weaker sex’ was either very naive or had to be kidding. I have seen women manipulate men with just a twitch of their eye — or perhaps another body part.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“There’s nothing I love more than women, but they’re really a lot different than portrayed. They are far worse than men, far more aggressive, and boy, can they be smart.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“I don’t know why, but I seem to bring out either the best or worst in women.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“I love women. They’ve come into my life. They’ve gone out of my life. Even those who have exited somewhat ungracefully still have a place in my heart.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“She’s just a woman. She can’t take the business.” (As quoted in Trumped!, John R. O’Donnell with James Rutherford, 1991)

*

“I don’t need this, some woman crying. I need somebody strong in here to take care of this place.” (Trumped!)

*

“She is really something else. God, what a body she has!… She’s a beautiful girl. Just a beautiful girl. Fucking gorgeous. An incredible body, just an incredible body. The girl is so physically fit. Beautiful face. A beautiful, beautiful girl.” (Trumped!)

*

“It’s all about the hunt and once you get it, it loses some of its energy. I think competitive, successful men feel that way about women.” (As quoted in TrumpNation, Timothy L. O’Brien, 2005)

“Sam Jackson should have gotten the Oscar for [‘Pulp Fiction’], not Travolta,” Donald mused. “My favorite part is when Sam has his gun out in the diner and he tells the guy to tell his girlfriend to shut up: ‘Tell that bitch to be cool! Say: “Bitch be cool!”’ I love those lines.” (O’Brien, writing in TrumpNation)

*

“I think that putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing. There was a great softness to Ivana, and she still has that softness, but during this period of time, she became an executive, not a wife… You know, I don’t want to sound too much like a chauvinist, but when I come home and dinner’s not ready, I’ll go through the roof, okay?” (TrumpNation)

*

“You know, it really doesn’t matter what they write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.” (TrumpNation)


On beauty pageants

“Nobody cares about the talent. There’s only one talent you care about, and that’s the look talent. You don’t give a shit if a girl can play a violin like the greatest violinist in the world. You want to know what does she look like.” (TrumpNation

On publicity

“Publicity is important because it creates interest in my hotels, residential buildings, and other projects. But sometimes it gets out of hand, and my every move is scrutinized by the press to the point of absurdity… The Trump Organization is in some ways like the Disney Company: Image means a great deal to me. If people don’t associate my name with quality and success, I’ve got serious problems.” (Surviving at the Top, Donald Trump with Charles Leerhsen, 1990)


On his youth

“I was especially carefree. I had a comfortable little studio apartment on Third Avenue in the city, and I maintained a lifestyle that was fairly commonplace then but that now, in an age when people are worried about dying from sex, is hard even to imagine. I didn’t drink or take drugs, as far as stimulants go, I’ve yet to have my first cup of coffee. But I was out four or five nights a week, usually with a different woman each time, and I was enjoying myself immensely.

Wild things happened all the time back then, and nobody thought very much of it. For instance, one day a friend called me at the office and said he needed to set up a date for a certain well-known married woman. This woman was visiting from out of town and was, he said — using a typical swinging-seventies expression — ‘really hot.’

I had a girlfriend at that time, and so did he, but I knew a guy named Ben who was very worldly-wise. Ben, I was sure, could serve as this woman’s escort and be discreet about it… She turned out to be the wife of a man who was then the prime minister of a major country. I’d heard stories about this lady, but I never thought much of them until that night. We met at the house of the friend who’d phoned me. After we’d all chatted for a while in the living room, the four of us who already knew each other drifted out to the kitchen, leaving Ben and Madame X in the living room to get better acquainted. Which they did. In fact, when we drifted back in, about ten minutes later, she and Ben were involved in an incredibly torrid scene on the couch. I remember standing there and thinking to myself, ‘Well, Donald, you’re not in Queens anymore.'” (Surviving at the Top)


On Michael Jackson’s sex life

“Somehow, Michael feels comfortable with me. I asked him how he was doing, and we started talking about his life, including his sex life. I was somewhat surprised when Michael told me he had a new girlfriend. I congratulated him and asked, ‘Who is it?’ He was very shy and looked down into his napkin, then put the napkin over his face and said, ‘Trump, Trump, I don’t want to talk about it, I’m so embarrassed.’ I chided him. ‘Come on, Michael,’ I said, ‘tell me who your new girlfriend is.’ When he finally looked up, he said that it was a girl named Lisa Marie.” (The Art of the Comeback)


On onerous litigation

“Litigation in the United States has gotten totally out of control. It has actually become an accepted business practice for people to use the court’s time, money, and energy in order to effect deals, break up deals, and receive money unjustly. I know people who virtually can’t function without starting a lawsuit, thinking that this will give them the upper hand in even the most simple of negotiations. Politicians ought to be ashamed of themselves for perpetuating this ridiculous situation. Court systems have become backlogged for years with superfluous cases.” (The Art of the Comeback)


On germaphobia

“I happen to be a clean-hands freak. I feel much better after I thoroughly wash my hands, which I do as often as possible. Recent medical reports have come out saying that colds and various other ailments are spread through the act of shaking hands. I have no doubt about this.

Almost nothing bothers me more than sitting down for dinner at a beautiful restaurant and having a man you’ve just seen leaving the men’s room, perhaps not even having washed his hands, spot you and run over to your table with a warm and friendly face, hand outstretched. You have a decision to make. Do you shake this total stranger’s hand, or do you insult him by saying that you would rather not? I have done both, and nothing works. If you shake his hand, you then get up to rewash your hands and inevitably somebody else comes over to you to shake hands. If you don’t shake his hand, he walks away with a long face, totally insulted, and bemoans for the rest of his life how that bastard Donald Trump would not shake his hand.” (The Art of the Comeback)

On his fear of AIDS

“It was painfully obvious how ill at ease he was in public situations. In part, I think it was really beyond his control. He was preoccupied by a fear of communicable disease, especially AIDS. Sometimes he’d joke about it, but he went so far as to warn a high-ranking Trump’s Castle publicist to avoid the Jacuzzi in the luxury health spa there because he considered it a potential breeding ground for the deadly virus.” (O’Donnell, writing in Trumped!)

*

“What went on in Studio 54 will never, ever happen again. First of all, you didn’t have AIDS. You didn’t have the problems you have now. I saw things happening there that to this day I have never seen again. I would watch supermodels getting screwed, well-known supermodels getting screwed on a bench in the middle of the room. There were seven of them and each one was getting screwed by a different guy. This was in the middle of the room. Stuff that couldn’t happen today because of problems of death.” (TrumpNation)


On his “tremendous fear of baldness”

“For Donald, image and reality were always in conflict. The Windsor knot in his tie was always pulled tight to his throat. At the same time, he let his sand-colored hair dip down to his eyes and curl over his ears and collar, and he plastered it on the sides with a greasy gel that he believed fostered hair growth. He had a tremendous fear of baldness. He swept his hair across the front of his head like a man trying to hide a thinning patch. He once observed to Mark that he considered baldness a sign of weakness. He gave a tube of the gel he used to Mark, warning him, ‘The worst thing a man can do is go bald. Never let yourself go bald,’ as if nature could be circumvented through sheer force of will.” (O’Donnell, writing in Trumped!)


On boxer Mike Tyson

“Tyson sat down in Donald’s corner office hundreds of feet above Fifth Avenue and the two men chatted for about fifteen minutes before the boxer got to the point. Donald recalled their conversation in detail.

‘Mr. Trump, could I ask you a question?’ Tyson asked.

‘Whatever you want, Mike,’ Donald responded.

‘Are you fucking my wife?’

‘What?’

‘Are you fucking my wife? Everyone’s telling me that you’re fucking my wife.’

Tyson then pulled out a copy of a Vogue magazine that featured a picture of Ms. [Robin] Givens wearing a Trump Princess hat from Donald’s yacht.

‘Everyone’s telling me that you’re fucking my wife and I think you’re fucking my wife,’ Tyson said.

‘Mike, let me tell you something: I never ever even thought about it. And I heard those rumors and they’re disgusting. In fact, I called you a couple of times to tell you that I heard those rumors and it pisses me off. And I never, ever even thought about it. She’s your wife, she’s with you, she’s loyal to you, and it’s total bullshit.’” (O’Brien, writing in TrumpNation)


On dealing with setbacks

“Finally, the ceiling was installed. One Saturday, Donald went up to have a look, accompanied by Steve, some of our hotel executives and a group of contractors. Donald looked up at the ceiling as if it was the first time he had seen it; then he looked at Steve. ‘What the fuck is this?’ he said. ‘Who said to make this ceiling so low?’

‘You knew about this, Donald,’ Steve replied. ‘We talked about it, if you remember, and the plans –‘

Suddenly Donald leaped up and punched his fist through the tile. Then he turned on Steve in a rage. ‘You cocksucker! Motherfucker! Where the fuck were you? Where was your fucking head?'” (O’Donnell, writing in Trumped!)

*

“’Where’s my wife? Get Ivana down here,’ he said. When she arrived, Donald turned on her fiercely. ‘How could you close one of my tables on the busiest fucking night of the year!’ he shouted. ‘I can’t believe you could be so stupid. Do you know how much money I’m losing here? Stupid! You’re costing me a fortune! This is the stupidest fucking thing I’ve ever seen!’” (O’Donnell, writing in Trumped!)

Palin’s Shameful Silence on Trump’s Misogyny

Alaska’s quitter governor and the Tea Party’s queen diva Sarah Palin uses her Facebook page to comment on all things political, including touting Donald Trump’s candidacy for the presidency. But when it comes to Trump’s outrageously sexist comments about her former colleague at Fox News, Megyn Kelly, Palin has remained shamefully silent about El Donaldo’s latest round of misogyny.

So much for Mama Grizzly solidarity with conservative women like Kelly, with whom Palin once declared: “We are the women’s movement!”

2015-08-09-1439160938-2930558-Palinangry.jpg

When Trump recently assaulted John McCain — who plucked Palin from obscurity in August of 2008 to join him on the Republican ticket — it was an entirely different matter. Palin immediately came to Trump’s defense, calling him a hero and blaming the scuffle on the media. It was an act of betrayal directed at McCain — and yet another instance of her blatant duplicity — that only Palin could pull off.

Trump, of course, has been nothing more than a serial sexist when it comes to his constant attacks on women: He has called women “ugly,” “fat,” “dogs,” “slobs,” “bimbos,” “extremely unattractive,” ad infinitum, all leading up to his allegation this weekend that Kelly was menstruating during the Republican presidential primary debate Thursday tonight.

I guess in Palin World, that all makes you a “hero.” So be it. But as virtually every major player in the current Republican line-up for president has called Trump on his latest remarks, Palin still hasn’t brought herself to take the high road. Just before the Presidential debate last week, Palin gave yet another bizarre interview in which she said that she advised Trump [3:11]:

I’ve already told him. I said: Keep it up! America appreciates that you’re calling it like you see it. He’s telling a lot of truth. And really helping educate and lead the other candidates because they’re going to have to step up their game and quit sounding like politicians.

I wonder what “truth” she thinks he’s now telling?

In addition to being beholden to Trump — he’s the only current candidate, with the possible exception of Ted Cruz, who would ever utter her name publicly — I’ve been told that there’s some inside back-story to Palin’s glaring lack of solidarity with Kelly. According to a source once in Palin’s inner-circle in Southcentral Alaska, Palin was livid at Kelley two years ago when the latter interrupted Palin in an interview in which Palin went into what seemed like a crack-addled rant about Obama and the American economy.

No one holds a grudge like Palin. In June, Palin was overtly critical of Kelly for interviewing Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald on her Fox News program. Two weeks later it was announced that Palin had been dumped from her position at Fox News.

That Palin is an exceedingly dull blade goes without saying, but even she must have noted the timing of Fox’s decision.

Trump just blew some seriously needed oxygen into Palin’s sinking political platform by indicating that Palin would serve in a cabinet-level capacity in his administration–which only someone with Palin’s crazy could view as a possibility — and for a brief moment it appeared that Palin’s stock, depressed as it is, might yet have another bump in it.

Not so. The descending numbers from her political action committee and her utter disappearance from the national Republican debate fully indicate that Palin’s political half-life has long since passed. She’s been reduced to a laugh-line and an afterthought.

As I noted in my critical biography of her, The Lies of Sarah Palin: The Untold Story Behind her Relentless Quest for Power, there is really no low to which Palin will not stoop to advance her own political and monetary interests. Her silence on the Kelly-Trump affair is par for the Palin course. When it comes to political courage and integrity, she has none.

Panama Also Drops Out Of Donald Trump’s Miss Universe Pageant

PANAMA CITY (AP) — Panama is joining several other Latin American nations in dropping out of the Miss Universe pageant in protest over Donald Trump’s comments about immigrants.

The Miss Panama Organization and the Telemetro television channel say that this year they won’t participate in or broadcast the Miss Universe contest partly owned by Trump.

They say the move is “a message of solidarity” to Mexicans offended by Trump’s recent description of Mexican migrants as rapists and as people who bring drugs and crime to the United States.

Panama hosted the pageant in 1986 and 2003. Contest organizers and broadcasters in Costa Rica and Mexico also have pulled out of the event.
