President Donald Trump has wrongly claimed that his State of the Union speech was watched by a record number of people. Thank you for all of the nice compliments and reviews on the State of the Union speech. 45.6 million people watched, the highest number in history. @FoxNews beat every other Network, for the first time ever, with 11.7 million people tuning in. Delivered from the heart! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwSAzM5nfZ8 45.6 million tune in to watch the speech, however– it was untrue to say it was the most watched State of Union address ever. The president addresses Congress and the nation each…

Rep. Joseph Kennedy III (D-Mass.) responded to the President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech, calling for a policies that can support all Americans. Kennedy denounced the Trump administration’s policies for “turning American life into a zero-sum game” in which the well-being of some Americans must come at the expense of others. He described the proposition Trump has offered the country as one in which “we can guarantee America’s safety if we slash our safety net” and “we can take care of sick kids if we sacrifice Dreamers.” “As if the mechanic in Pittsburgh and the teacher in Tulsa…

When we thought that we have heard it all from Stormy Daniels about her alleged affair with President Donald Trump, she is saying opposite things.  After she had an interview with Inside Edition, it was clear that there was something between the two. While, she is out to say something else, maybe, she has since read her non-disclosure agreement and realizes she needs to lie a little better. Earlier in January, the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump paid Daniels $130,000 in hush money to keep quiet about their relationship. Unfortunately for Trump, she already went public in a 2011…

Michelle Obama will be celebrating with Ellen DeGeneres on her 60th birthday on the show. This will be her first TV interview since leaving the White House. The audience for the first of two birthday-themed shows will be “filled with people who are paying it forward” and have participated in DeGeneres’s #OneMillionActsofGood campaign, according to the daytime talk program. Obama has kept a decidedly lower profile since exiting the executive mansion last January, but was a frequent guest on DeGeneres’s show as first lady. She co-hosted DeGeneres’s eponymous chatfest back in 2016. In 2012, she went head-to-head against DeGeneres in…

In the wake of the Stormy Daniels revelations, CNN Reporter Randi Kaye sat down with six female Trump supporters from Texas to ask them whether the fact that Trump allegedly had an affair with the porn star just weeks after Melania gave birth to their son mattered to them. Their responses are telling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6PbPFBPs3k “We care about jobs, we care about the economy, safety, that’s what we care about,” one woman said. They seem to be able to forgive the man his sins because they believe he was “ordained by God.” The women extol the virtues of Trump’s “conservative beliefs,”…

It has many months and still counting that the Republicans have attempted to discredit the FBI with private text messages. Even Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson  ended up as a joker when he claimed that they had proof of FBI agents “holding secret meetings off-site.” Now, Republicans seem to have a  microscope turned on them, leading to Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC). Gowdy is the man who tried to pin Benghazi on Hillary Clinton, but failed woefully. In an interview on Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace criticized Republicans for their “secret society” lie. “Don’t republicans hurt their…

Republican State Senator Steve West has responded within hours that a 15-year-old student shot and killed two classmates in a Kentucky high school.  He has filed a bill that will make sure that this type of tragedy will not happen again. His proposed legislation would allow local districts hire armed marshals to patrol public schools, make citizen’s arrest, and protect students, teachers, staff, and visitors from “imminent death or serious physical injury.” These Marshalls wouldn’t have to be actual law enforcement officers, but just employees with good records who have licenses to carry concealed weapons. That should end well. “I’m…

Saturday Night Live host Will Ferrell resurrected his impression of George W. Bush in this week’s opening monologue. “It is I, George W. Bush, and you might remember that the ‘W’ stands for, ‘Whazzaaap?!’” began Ferrell’s Bush, who was addressing the nation from his Texas home where he built an Oval Office set for those times when he wants to pretend he’s still the commander-in-chief. He recapped what he has been doing since he left the White House, and also addressed the fact that his approval ratings are at an all-time high since Trump took on the presidency. “The point…

President Donald Trump has taken credit for the decrease in the African-American unemployment rate again.  He has taken a swipe at rapper Jay-Z following his comments on CNN Saturday night. “Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!” Trump tweeted Sunday morning. The latest unemployment rate for African-Americans is 6.8%, while the rate is 3.7% percent for white people. Both the African-American rate and the overall rate have declined steadily since 2010. The President’s tweet follows Jay-Z’s remarks on the premiere of CNN’s “The Van…

Politically active actor, Mark Ruffalo  is one of more than a dozen stars slated to participate in the People’s State of the Union on Monday, a star-studded public alternative to President Trump’s State of the Union speech the following evening. The event will unite activists, artists and other leaders of the resistance movement who have vowed to defeat Trump’s agenda in 2018 by turning out the vote and helping Democrats win back Congress. “In essence,” Ruffalo tells PEOPLE of the event, “it’s a better reflection of our state of the union based on a more populist point of view, based…
