For all that the Democrats talk about feminism and equality for women, they sure have a knack for linking themselves to Hollywood sex scandals.

 



The 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards aired January 21 on TNT and it was all about the ladies, from First Lady Melania Trump, to the #MeToo women.

Men were relegated to second class status, only helping to present the nominations of ensemble awards.



An alliance of far-leftists and Never-Trumpers has formed a group called the "Committee to Investigate Russia." In a video posted on Monday, octogenarian actor Morgan Freeman contended that the United States is "at war" with Russia. On Thursday, Fox News's Tucker Carlson interviewed actor and director Rob Reiner, a member of that group's advisory board. Despite Reiner's outwardly cool demeanor, Carlson's lines of questioning seemed to catch the guy who is still perhaps best known for having played "Meathead" back in the 1970s on CBS's All in the Family utterly off-guard.

The Sunday newspaper supplement Parade Magazine carried an interview Sunday with Tea Leoni, star of the new CBS series Madam Secretary, who confirmed that the infamous “What difference does it make?” testimony of Hillary Clinton on Benghazi inspired the new show.

With Miley Cyrus’s raunchy performance at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday, it is a metaphysical certitude Americans will now be bombarded with pictures and discussions about twerking.

Doing his part Wednesday was guest HLN Morning Express co-host Morgan Freeman with a report on the Oxford Dictionary adding twerking as an official word (video follows with transcript and commentary):



With all the stink caused by CNN and NBC's planned programs about Hillary Clinton, you'd think other networks might shy away from such projects.

Not CBS who according to The Wrap is developing a new series about a - wait for it! - female secretary of state executive produced by the perilously liberal Morgan Freeman.



Barack Obama is considered to be one of the least accessible presidents in decades.

Despite this, Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman told NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno that he can get the President on the phone if he wants to (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
