Filed under: TV NewsPolitikDonald TrumpSad SadScary!NewsLate Night TVViral: NewsControversy

Every single week that Donald Trump has been President has made for a crazy, unpredictable, off-the-cuff week — but the last few weeks may really may take the cake.

Nuclear war threats with North Korea, a failed response to blatant racism to Charlottesville (and then an explicit show of support for racists), the firing of highly controversial advisor Steve Bannon… Trump's administration is floundering!!!

And so Senator Al Franken (D-MN) didn't hold back in offering a takedown of Trump because of all this on Real Time with host Bill Maher last night!

Wouldn't that be the day…

Rick Perry REFUSES To Give Up White House Podium While Claiming Science Isn't Settled On Climate Change! See The Most Frustrated Reactions!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpTwitterEnvironment

no title

Much like our environment, the Trump administration is getting a ton of heat for pulling American out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

So to help ease our minds, Energy Secretary Rick Perry held a White House press conference on Tuesday encouraging some "intellectual conversation" on the contentious topic of climate change.

But after rambling for 30 minutes and deflecting reporters' questions, it became clear the former Texas governor had little intellectual conversation himself to offer!

After letting Perry yammer on about the administration's "Energy Week" for over half an hour, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders started giving Perry the signal to wrap it up.

But the Dancing with the Stars veteran continued to speak, practically causing reporters to beg for Sanders to pull the plug on the radioactive energizer bunny!

Watch a clip Perry failing to understand a reporter's question (below), along with scathing Twitter reactions!

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Beating Donald Trump For President In Latest 2020 Poll!

no title

Donald Trump only has himself to blame.

The Celebrity Apprentice star and professional bullshitter proved that anyone could be President — even a WWE star. (Yes, our sitting President is in the WWE Hall of Fame.)

Maybe that's what inspired Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to tentatively throw his hat in the ring for 2020. Who knows?

Democrats & Republicans Want Trump's Attorney General To Resign From FBI Investigation After He Allegedly Lied About Meeting With Russian Officials!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpControversy

no title

Donald Trump's new Attorney General should probably look into getting an attorney of his own.

It was revealed on Wednesday night that Jeff Sessions had contact with Russians during the campaign, even though he testified at his Senate confirmation hearing he did no such thing!

According to The Washington Post, the now-Attorney General had personally communicated with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak back in September — and now, government officials want him to step down for being a lying sack of shit.

Since the revelation was made, Democrats and Republican members of Congress have called for Sessions to resign from the FBI investigation into Russia's influencing the election.

Sessions pushed back on the calls to recuse himself from the investigation on Thursday morning, doubling down on his original claims. He told NBC News:

Donald Trump's Secretary Of Education Pick Gets Schooled By Democrats After She Says Classrooms Need Guns To Fend Off Grizzly Bear Attacks…

She's just as smart as the men in the Cabinet! Too bad that's not really saying much…

Donald Trump is about to become the most openly sexist President in the history of the United States in just two days' time — but even he couldn't get away with only hiring men in the White House.

Unfortunately for female politicians (and feminists everywhere, for that matter), one of only TWO women in his 16-person Cabinet may actually be the least qualified pick of the entire bunch!

Secretary of Education nominee Betsy DeVos had her Senate confirmation hearing Tuesday evening, where she somehow managed to overshadow her extremely anti-LGBT attitude on schooling by taking an even more barbaric stance on gun control in classrooms…

In fact, when asked by Sandy Hook rep. Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy about the place of firearms in schools, the Amway heiress literally answered:

Al Franken Warns Big Corporations Are 'Hoping To Destroy' The Internet

Filed under: PolitikTech Talk

Al Franken warns SXSW

This makes us a little nervous.

Minnesota Sen. Al Franken gave a speech to hundreds of attendees at this year's South By Southwest festival on the subject of net neutrality, warning that we may be facing "the First Amendment issue of our time."

Referring to the threat of corporations taking over the internet, the senator said:

"I came here to warn you, the party may be over. They're coming after the Internet hoping to destroy the very thing that makes it such an important [medium] for independent artists and entrepreneurs: its openness and freedom.”

As an opponent of the Comcast acquisition of NBC Universal, Franken singled out the corporate giant.

Alleging that the cable company wants "to put Netflix out of business entirely" due to their streaming video business that could pose as a threat to Comcast's cable franchise, he warned:

"In the end, the American people will end up paying a lot more for worse service."

He encouraged festival attendees to fight the political influence of the big telecom firms, saying:

"Unfortunately one thing these big corporations have that we don't is the ability to purchase favorable political outcomes. Big telecoms have lots of [lobbyists], and good ones, too. … The end of net neutrality would benefit no one but these corporate giants."

He ended his speech by encouraging people to fight to preserve net neutrality to avoid a future in which they're "stuck listening to the Black Eyed Peas and reminiscing about the days before you had to sell out to make it.”

Ha! Now THAT'S a scary thought!

The senator continued:

“Let's not let the government sell us out. Let's fight for net neutrality. Let's keep Austin weird. Let's keep the Internet weird. Let's keep the Internet free."

Well said, sir! We couldn't agree more! After all, this internet thing is kind of our life blood.

Are U afraid of corporations or the government taking over the internet?
