Donald Trump Praises Australia's Universal Health Care System ~Moments~ After The House's Vote To Repeal Obamacare — But… But… Nevermind

| Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald TrumpAnderson CooperHealth

Donald Trump

What an idiot.

Just after the House's vote to repeal ACA (AKA Obamacare) on Thursday, Donald Trump met with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, where he praised Australia's universal healthcare system.

In case you're unaware, Australia's system, known as Medicare, gives citizens free access to doctors and public hospitals paid for by the government. Meanwhile, the GOP's plan allows insurance companies to charge more to people with pre-existing conditions (which includes things like sexual assault and C-sections), temporarily defunds Planned Parenthood, and cuts funding for Medicaid.

So, basically complete opposites.

Ryan Seacrest Tapped As Kelly Ripa's New Live! Cohost!

kelly ripa picks ryan seacrest live cohost

UPDATE 5/1/2017 9:10 A.M. EST: It's official! Ryan was announced as Kelly's new cohost during the show this morning!



We should've seen this casting coming.

As you may've heard, Kelly Ripa is slated to introduce her new Live! cohost today (May 1). And while the pint-sized TV personality has yet to confirm the news herself, CNN reports that her new partner in crime is none other than Ryan Seacrest. Yup, the hosting King is heading to New York in order to fill the big shoes Michael Strahan left behind.

In case you forgot, last year Strahan announced he would be leaving the morning show so that he could take on a full time position at Good Morning America. Nonetheless, Miz Ripa was in no rush to find Michael's replacement as she had a slew of A-list guest cohosts for about a year — including Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen, Jimmy Kimmel, Neil Patrick Harris, Dwyane Wade, and others. We mean, Seacrest was even tapped several times to sit by Ripa's side while she searched for the right copilot. Well, it looks like the hunt is finally over. Phew!

Thankfully, Ryan has plenty of hosting experience on his resume as he hosted American Idol for years, has his own radio show (On Air with Ryan Seacrest), AND is the face of New Year's Rockin' Eve. In fact, we're kind of surprised that he has time to take on Live!. LOLz!

Regardless, we couldn't be happier for Ryan and Kelly on their new professional partnership. Squeeee!

Former Mexican President Tells Donald Trump — On National TV — That 'Mexico Will Never Pay For That Fucking Wall!'

| Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersPolitikDonald TrumpAnderson CooperViral: News

Vicente Fox has had it with this motherfucking talk of this motherfucking wall!

The former Mexican president has been an outspoken critic against Donald Trump's cartoonish plans to build a giant wall on the southern U.S. border, and even more comical declaration that Mexico would pay for it.

Earlier this month, the 74-year-old made it no secret the Mexican government has NO intentions of ever reimbursing the orange POTUS for the offensive barrier, stating loud and clear that U.S. taxpayers would get stuck with the monstrous bill.

And after President Tiny Hands revealed he would be moving forward with construction on his divisive border "as soon as possible," Fox once again reminded us that "Mexico will never pay for that fucking wall!"

In a CNN interview with Anderson Cooper on Wednesday, the former president said the "stupid" wall was a "waste of money," and reiterated Mexico would not be chipping in whatsoever.

Trump has admitted U.S. taxpayers would foot the bill, but insisted Mexico will reimburse us with a complicated payment system — but clearly, they're singing a much different tune down south.

Watch the clip (below) to see Fox tear down the idea of Trump's wall!

Anderson Cooper & Kellyanne Conway Have A Heated Exchange — And They Will NOT Back Down Over Reporting On Russia!

Spinmaster Kellyanne!

If you've been paying attention, you know Donald Trump's been dealing with some MAJOR controversy the past couple days thanks to #GoldenShowerGate and the way in which some news outlets reported the story.

During Trump's first press conference on Wednesday, the President-elect got into a shouting match with CNN's senior White House correspondent, Jim Acosta and called the network "fake news."

Well, Anderson Cooper was NOT okay with the Trump administration's treatment of his employer and luckily he had the senior adviser to the future POTUS, Kellyanne Conway on his show Wednesday night to get to the bottom of it!

Cooper, being the incredibly poised professional he is, did NOT back down as the two clashed over how CNN and other news outlets handled the claims. Kellyanne continually accused CNN of being the first to report the story and Anderson argued that Conway was confusing his network's coverage with BuzzFeed, which published the dossier in full that contained the specific allegations against Donald.

Miz Conway of course did her best to come out swinging at the beginning, saying:

Anderson Cooper Questions Melania Trump's Cyber Bullying Platform: 'Doesn't This Start At Home?'

First The View, and now AC360!

As you may have noticed, Melania Trump redeemed her RNC disaster on Thursday when she picked a platform during a campaign stop outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

In her noticeably not stolen speech, the mother-of-one vowed to tackle cyber bullying as her main duty as FLOTUS… which is questionable, considering her husband, Donald Trump, is arguably the most famous bully alive!

Luckily, Anderson Cooper is just as aware of the irony as we are — so when Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway stopped by CNN on Thursday, she got quite the earful.

While she was just doing her job by defending the racist Republican… Anderson wasn't about to let her off the hook for supporting someone so sexist!

In fact, when Kellyanne tried to downplay Trump's trolling on Twitter once Anderson brought up Melania's stance on cyber bullying, the host shot right back at her, asking:
