They should change the name of the show to AWKWARD! With Kelly and Michael!

If there's one thing you can trust Donald Trump to do, it's stick to his guns.
In fact, even when saying things off the top of his head that are completely ignorant and don't make any sense — like implying that John McCain is less of a war hero because he was a POW — he never backs down.
Of course, when even fellow Republican candidates Jeb Bush and Scott Walker condemned what he said, we're guessing Trump tried to change the conversation.
On Monday morning's Today show, Matt Lauer held the Presidential hopeful's feet to the fire over his remarks, and all The Donald wanted to do was attack McCain's political record.
He also argued that he said McCain is a war hero. See what happens when Lauer reads his own words back to him (below)!
Well, a broken clock is still right twice a day!
Donald Trump is no stranger to controversy — and controversy nabbed him several times this week, like when he made awful statements about John McCain not being a war hero, or when he put his foot in his mouth over escaped Mexican drug kingpin El Chapo Guzman.
On The Rita Cosby Show (nope, no relation) that aired this morning in New York City, Trump discussed Cosby's alleged history of sexual assault and put a pretty fine point on it:
Oh, Donald Trump. When will you learn?!
Apparently not this week, because The Donald walked into another firestorm of controversy after making questionable statements about former presidential candidate and veteran John McCain.
The statements were widely panned by other politicians, but Twitter also spoke their mind — as they tend to do — about Trump's brash tongue.
Ch-ch-check out some of the funny and telling tweets (below):
Donald Trump strikes again!
It seems as though the presidential candidate didn't think he burned enough bridges after his comments about Mexican immigrants sparked tons of outrage. On Saturday, the former Apprentice host called out a revered member of the Republican Party.
The Donald was speaking in front of a bunch of religious conservatives at the annual Family Leadership Summit, when he was pressed about his recent description of Senator John McCain as "a dummy."
Moderator Frank Luntz described the 2008 presidential nominee as "a war hero." McCain's plane was shot down while serving in Vietnam, and he spent over five years as a prisoner of war. But Trump thought of it this way:
Just when there was an ounce of hope!
Fox News has announced that it is not going to renew their contract with Sarah Palin.
It won't be a messy split; the network and the former vice-presidential candidate have apparently split on amicable terms, which means that she is still expected to make guest appearances on both Fox and Fox Business.
It's not like we'd REALLY get rid of her though as the former Alaska governor still has a show on the Sportsman Channel. Apparently, she also has big news right around the corner too as she's going
John McCain is complaining about the TV again- too many darn channels!
Only this time the Arizona Senator is complaining on the Senate floor! He's introducing a bill called the TV Consumer Freedom Act of 2013.
The bill would force cable providers to sell packages of "à la carte" channels- in other words, custom packages designed by the consumer! He says:
In fact, he also proved that he's a pretty impressive actor, as seen during his appearance in a parody video of Steven Spielberg discussing his cinematic 'follow-up' to Lincoln, chronicling our current President's life and starring notorious method-actor Daniel Day-Lewis in the title role!
That's right, folks! Get ready to watch Barack Obama playing Daniel Day-Lewis playing Barack Obama (above)!
And the LOLz didn't stop there!
