Proving that there’s nothing too small that the media won’t attack the current administration for, Washington Post gossip columnist Emily Heil bashed the Vice President for his Valentine’s Day gift choice, in an article in today’s Post.
While traditionalists surely looked quizzically at the contemporary portraits that Barack and Michelle Obama commissioned for display in the National Portrait Gallery, one could count on The Washington Post and The New York Times to explain how wonderfully revolutionary the Obamas were to promote African-American painters to overturn the "bland propriety" of white traditions.
Michelle Obama doesn’t want you to think that she has an agenda, in any way, shape, or form. But for all her talk about unity and being “an open-hearted nation,” she can’t resist the typical liberal complaints about the Trump administration. In the same vein, Ellen Degeneres, who denies being political, also cannot avoid slamming conservative politics on her show. When Ellen told Michelle Obama that “I feel like the world is a very scary place right now,” the former First Lady responded, “People are afraid … about the direction of the country.”
An impersonation of former President Barack Obama used during the filming of a sex tape lands the lead character in Showtime’s White Famous in hot water with the black community. The December 3 episode is titled “Scandal.”
This week, the Obamas hosted a two-day summit on leadership in Chicago, complete with a celebrity lineup of speakers and entertainers from Prince Harry to Lin Manuel Miranda. Former First Lady Michelle Obama sat down with poet and family friend Elizabeth Alexander to talk about leadership Wednesday morning, in a live-streamed discussion.
Comedy Central’s Broad City is known for its outrageously inappropriate humor. But Wednesday, October 26th’s episode, “Witches,” went beyond outrageous into extremely bizarre and depraved. One thing is clear after watching this shockingly vulgar episode…Broad City does not care about or welcome conservative viewers.
At an awards ceremony in D.C. Sunday night honoring David Letterman, President Trump was the most talked about person in the room. Liberal celebrities and politicians, including Jimmy Kimmel, Amy Schumer, Michelle Obama and Sen. Al Franken all gathered at the Kennedy Center to honor the former CBS late night host with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, which rewarded Letterman for his “social criticism” and “insightful” humor.
ABC journalist and Obama fan Robin Roberts on Monday’s Nightline gushed over a new book of pictures of the Obamas. Co-host Dan Harris deemed the collection of images “picture perfect.” Talking to former White House photographer Amanda Lucidon, Roberts fawned over a picture of the couple snuggling close to each other: “Didn't the President tweet this photo for Valentine's Day?”
During her show on Tuesday, HLN’s S.E. Cupp unloaded on liberal Hollywood for keeping Harvey Weinstein’s predatory nature an “open secret” throughout the industry while slamming and shaming conservative women as traitors to their gender. “But there's another problem here, and it's why so many women like me are angry that Hollywood protected Weinstein’s horrific treatment of women for so long,” she exclaimed. “That's because Hollywood and Democrats—the combined self-proclaimed arbiters of “what’s good for women”—have for years insisted that I am bad for women.”
At a marketing conference in Boston Wednesday, former First Lady Michelle Obama complained that women who voted against Hillary Clinton, must not have their own voice. In fact, it means they must only follow what they’re told and hate what’s best for women. The condescending comment came during a lengthy spiel Obama gave about transitioning to life outside the White House, and what it meant to be “true to yourself."
ABC’s Good Morning America spent two-and-a-half minutes on Thursday morning whacking HHS Secretary Tom Price’s use of private planes for travel last week, with the apparently horrifying price tag “in the tens of thousands of dollars.” But during the Obama years, GMA had no problem with then-First Lady Michelle Obama spending in excess of $200,000 to travel to Spain for a vacation with her daughters. At the time, commentator Cokie Roberts rationalized: “In the grand scheme of things, what real difference does it make? I would guess that Sasha is probably learning some Spanish. Maybe she learned a little more Spanish on her trip.”
Season Four of Comedy Central’s Broad City opened with an episode titled “Sliding Doors” on September 13th. Themes from last season randomly pop into this flashback-style episode through the eyes of both characters, Abbi Abrams (Abbi Jacobson) and Ilana Wexler (Ilana Glazer) as they relive the day they first met, with a twist.
