By Jaclyn Cashman | PUBLISHED: March 18, 2019 at 4:38 pm | UPDATED: March 19, 2019 at 5:54 am President Trump may get the last laugh in his ongoing spat with “Saturday Night Live.” They mock him on a weekly basis and he’s sick of it. This is supposed to be a comedy TV program, but it increasingly looks like a Democratic hit squad — roughing Republicans like Trump and George W. Bush while going easy on Barack Obama. “It’s truly incredible that shows like Saturday Night Live, not funny/no talent, can spend all of their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without so much of a mention of ‘the other side.’ Like an advertisement without consequences. Same with Late Night Shows,” Trump wrote on Twitter. So the question has become if this really is a political propaganda program tying up the public airwaves, and not a comedy show, should it offer equal time to both parties? Satire is protected free speech, but has SNL … [Read more...] about Trump should sic FCC on ‘Saturday Night Live’

NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland—It’s 4 p.m. on Wednesday, the first day of the 2019 Conservative Political Action Conference—not exactly a prime speaking slot—but a standing room-only crowd has gathered to hear from freshman Congressman Dan Crenshaw. While we wait for the 34-year-old Texan, who is running late due to a vote in the House, the first person I talk to at the back of the Eastern Shore meeting room is Jacob Foster, an 18-year-old high-school student at Gann Academy outside Boston, who is attending CPAC for the third time in his young life. Foster is something of an endangered species at the conference: a conservative who likes a lot of the policies advanced by President Donald Trump yet doesn’t intend to vote for him in 2020 because of Trump’s character. But Crenshaw gives Foster hope. “The glaring difference is he’s not facing accusations of sexual assault, he hasn’t had three marriages, he didn’t dodge the Vietnam … [Read more...] about Is Dan Crenshaw the Future of the GOP?

'No part of her life should be anyone's clickbait': Tabloid's Malia Obama report draws rebukes on social media 1 / 34 Back to Gallery The Daily Mail might as well have just copied and pasted Malia Obama's Facebook account and hit publish. The British tabloid's Monday story led with a picture she shared on Facebook showing Post-it notes that described President Donald Trump as "evil." It ended with the … [Read more...] about ‘No part of her life should be anyone’s clickbait’: Tabloid’s Malia Obama report draws rebukes on social media
By Michael Graham | PUBLISHED: February 17, 2019 at 10:20 pm | UPDATED: February 18, 2019 at 4:07 am Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion! — President Trump, via Twitter. You’re right, Mr. President, Saturday Night Live isn’t funny. Tell us something we don’t know. SNL isn’t funny, Elizabeth Warren isn’t an Indian and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can’t do math. You call this “collusion.” The rest of us call it “obvious.” In fact, if you pledged not to tweet again until Alec Baldwin landed a funny line on NBC, you could throw away your smartphone right now. And your poll numbers would jump 10 points before Easter. My complaint isn’t about SNL’s blatant partisanship, it’s about … [Read more...] about SNL no laughing matter anymore
Steve Martin was the most recent alumni of "Saturday Night Live" to return to the stage for the cold open. Martin appeared as the recently-indicted Trump adviser Roger Stone during the Jan. 27 episode, which was hosted by rookie James McAvoy with a musical performance from Philly's own Meek Mill. The cold open was a parody of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" hosted by Carlson (Alex Moffat) with special segments on the government shutdown, Wilbur Ross (Kate McKinnon) and on Stone's recent arrest by special counsel Robert Mueller. Stone's Friday arrest could be the most direct evidence unearthed regarding the supposed alliance between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks in an effort to slander Hillary Clinton's presidential run, according to the New York Times.Martin parodied Stone's somewhat bizarre love of Richard Nixon, evident in his dramatic display on Federal District Court steps after his arrest where he held up Nixon's signature 'Victory' hand signs and declared his … [Read more...] about Steve Martin came back to ‘SNL’ as Roger Stone in this week’s cold open
