Here we go again. If you think the manure-spreaders of sensationalism who masquerade as ethical practitioners of journalism learned anything from last week's MAGA-bashing Covington Catholic High School hoax, I have three words for you: Ha, ha, ha. On Tuesday morning, uncorroborated claims by actor Jussie Smollett that he was the victim of a “brutal” hate crime by Trump supporters in Chicago went viral across social media.
A couple days after Gladys Knight said she's returning home to Atlanta to restore the national anthem in the Feb. 3rd Super Bowl, Rev. Al Sharpton, of MSNBC, tells TMZ Sports an African-American entertainer is failing to fight Jim Crow at the Super Bowl. The halftime program, now a regular blight on the culture, has become a big political football with supporters of Colin Kaepernick boycotting in protest to his unemployment.
If someone could manufacture a celebrity specifically to send the left into convulsions, Latino comedian Paul Rodriguez would be that celebrity. Not only is his humor acclaimed throughout both Latin America and the USA, but his celebrity activism goes far beyond the petty Twitter spats of Bette Midler and Debra Messing: He heads up a water rights coalition in California and fights for better access.
When monitoring celebrity tweets in the age of Trump, It’s best to have drawerfuls of asterisks handy. Hollywood liberals tend to have as much control of their profanity as they do their hatred. So what has our President done this week to earn the bitter words and salty tears of glitterati? According to Newsweek, Parks and Recreation star Billy Eichner’s TMZ interview revealed that he is not a fan of a Trump Administration idea to restore the federal definition of sex to an individual’s biological sex at birth.
Clifford Harris, who bears the moniker T.I. in the rap world, saw his last chart success almost five years ago. But he’s been getting notoriety lately for his political musings, such as the belief that white politicians who plan to legalize marijuana are “Righteous Decent White People” who use “their privilege to make a difference.”
Famous race-baiter Al Sharpton has been reflecting on Aretha Franklin since her passing yesterday. Apparently he found that the best way to honor her legacy was using it against his political opponents like President Donald Trump. As Sharpton took a daytime stroll through the streets of Manhattan, TMZ reporters approached the pastor and asked him about how he felt regarding the death of the “Queen of Soul.”
For those of you worried that Tom Arnold has fallen by the wayside in the wake of his epic meltdown last month during his CNN interview with Poppy Harlow in which he flitted in and out (mostly out) of reality, we bring you good news. Tom is now hot on the trail of the Trump Elevator Tape. The only problem is that tape seems to be even more elusive than the Holy Grail. In fact, it is the Holy Grail, despite nobody knowing its contents, for liberal reporters who have given up hope that Special Counsel Robert Mueller can bring down President Donald Trump.
How’s this for a career enhancing PR stunt? Stand up comedian Maria Bamford says she’s really unsettled by the Trump Administration’s foreign policy as of late, so much so that she has filed a restraining order against the president himself.
In vino veritas.
And with failed actor, Shia LaBeouf, we learned that a lot of vino led to a lot of veritas when he was arrested for drunken and disorderly conduct in Savannah, Georgia on July 8. The leftwing LaBeouf, while heavily under the influence of his alcoholic truth serum, revealed himself as the worst stereotype of the one percent rich folks when he drunkenly boasted of his "millionaire lawyers." It is unknown at this writing what his sentence will be but his worst punishment is that the highly embarrassing police bodycam footage obtained by TMZ will follow him around to haunt him for the rest of his life unto the end of time.
In a photo shoot leaked on Tuesday afternoon by TMZ, far-left lewd comedian Kathy Griffin posed with a bloodied, fake severed head of President Donald Trump in the same vein ISIS fighters would in videos showing the beheading of their prisoners.
On Thursday afternoon, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell was outraged by the report from TMZ that multiple sources in the NBC circle said the network “top network execs knew about the video long before they publicly said they did, but wanted to hold it because it was too early in the election” and instead “roll out the tape 48 hours before the debate so it would dominate the news cycle leading up to the face-off.”
NBC executives had planned to use video of the vulgar discussion between Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and Billy Bush to influence the election.
TMZ reported on Oct. 12, that NBC executives knew of the existence of this taped conversation before the The Washington Post released it to the public — although they’ve claimed to only know about it for about a week. The actual incident dates back to 2005.
