Joy Behar Trying To Explain Wearing Blackface Is Simply Ridiculous. Watch Below…

Looks like an old blackface video has finally caught up with liberal host Joy Behar.

The Wrap media editor Jon Levine shared the old video of “The View” from 2016 which showed the co-host trying to explain a Halloween costume she wore when she was younger.

Behar shared the picture of herself when she was 29 during a discussion about curly hair.

After the picture appeared, Raven-Symoné who was a co-host at the time asked her, “Joy, are you black?”

From Fox News:

“I was so cute,” Behar said.

“Joy… are you my auntie, Joy?” Raven-Symoné joked.

Behar explained that the picture was taken at a Halloween party where she dressed up as a “beautiful African woman” and stressed that it was her actual hair.

“Did you have tanning lotion on, Joy?” Raven-Symoné asked.

Behar responded by saying she wore makeup “that was a little bit darker than my skin.”

This comes at a time when a scandal involving wearing blackface has embroiled Democrats in Virginia. Both the Governor and the Attorney General have admitted to wearing blackface at parties in the 1980s.

Comedians like Jimmy Kimmel have worn blackface in the past and faced no pushback for it.

Megyn Kelly spoke about people wearing blackface when she was a child and she was let go after it.

ABC News has not responded about what they think of the Joy Behar incident.

FOX NEWS:

Despite the controversy surrounding Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam dominating the news cycle for days, late-night hosts Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon avoided the subject in their monologues on Monday night.

On Friday, Northam’s yearbook page from the East Virginia Medical school in 1984 went viral because it included an image of someone in blackface and another in a KKK robe. After apologizing and taking responsibility that night, Northam changed course the following morning, claiming he wasn’t either of the two people in the photo. He did, however, admit to wearing blackface when entering a dance competition as Michael Jackson that same year.

While Northam’s racist yearbook page and bizarre press conference led national news and were mocked by several late-night hosts, they were left unmentioned by Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon, both of whom have worn blackface on comedy skits.

Late-night funnymen Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon both ignored the massive controversy created by a photo purportedly showing Gov. Ralph Northam (D-VA) in blackface.

As Fox News points out, the late-night network hosts may have ignored the story due to their own history wearing blackface in past comedy sketches.

Jimmy Kimmel wore it in a Comedy Central sketch years ago, mocking NBA player Karl Malone.

Jimmy Fallon also performed in blackface during a sketch on NBC, impersonating Chris Rock.

Northam has faced a slew of calls to step down after a photo from his medical school yearbook emerged showing a man in blackface alongside a man in a KKK robe. Gov. Northam initially apologized, but later backtracked and claimed he didn’t believe he was one of the men in the photo.

Indeed, though both Kimmel and Fallon are now subservient to the politically correct nature of Hollywood, there was a time where both reveled in some politically incorrect humor — Kimmel especially.

On The Man Show, Kimmel and his co-host Adam Carolla did a number of non-PC skits. In one, they poke fun at Asians for a “limited grasp of English” and call their home countries “hellholes.”

In another, the men set up a trampoline and had women jump on it, while the guys made jokes about the women’s bodies.

Kimmel also used to do a bit where he’d put a mystery object in his pants and told women on the street to put their hands in his pants to figure out what it is.

At one point, he asks a woman how old she is — when she replied that she’s 18, he jokes, “You sure of that? Because Uncle Jimmy doesn’t need to do time.”

When a black-and-white picture that appeared below Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s 1984 medical school yearbook page - of a bowtied man in blackface standing next to a white-robed member of the Ku Klux Klan - starting making the media rounds on Friday, it struck me at first like the most ridiculously cartoonish of fake news. Here was the Democratic governor of Virginia - by all accounts heretofore a good Leftist who openly advocates for every liberal issue under the sun including, of late, borderline infanticide - potentially being caught up in a racial controversy that would make Robert Byrd blush.

It was almost too surreal to be true, too seemingly contrived to not be a made-up meme from the bowels of the right-wing internet. But time told the tale soon enough. Was the picture real? Turns out, it was. Was the picture actually under Northam’s yearbook page? For sure. Was Northam actually in the picture, either in blackface or a KKK robe? Well, that one is a little more up in the air, especially after the Virginia governor’s Saturday press conference denying it. Whether or not Northam’s vehement denials are enough to raise more than a reasonable doubt in the minds of Virginians is yet to be seen, but regardless, the die has been cast. Make no mistake, Ralph Northam’s days as governor of Virginia are quickly coming to an end.

Now at this point, the ‘narrative’ for me as a non-left-wing columnist might typically be to demonstrate the difference between ‘Good Democrat’ Ralph Northam’s situation and that of, well, pretty much anyone right of center, like Iowa Rep. Steve King. Surely, there is a double-standard, right? They’ve obviously existed in the past. But in this case, while a cynic might say liberals have nothing to gain by replacing Northam with the even more liberal Justin Fairfax, the quick response from Democrats and liberals of every stripe, from Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi to Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and the NAACP, suggests at least an increasing willingness to finally police their own.

View Cartoon

So now everyone is being policed, at least when it comes to real or perceived racial sins, no matter how egregious or how far removed from the present. Do you feel safer? I know I do! Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank celebrated this fact in a Saturday column, contending that, while Northam has lived an admirable life of late and likely considers losing it all because of an almost 35-year-old transgression “unfair,” that’s just the way it should be.

“But some things should disqualify people from public service — a Nazi salute, sexual assault, preying on children and, yes, dressing as a Klansman or in blackface — and it doesn’t matter if it happened 35 years ago,” Milbank wrote.

So, a home invader can be the governor of Virginia, but Northam can’t? To be clear, I am not in any way excusing or condoning the use of blackface in any era. It’s insensitive, horrific, and it should be condemned, but if someone honestly doesn’t see a moral difference between preying on children and a politically-incorrect party-gone-WAAAAAY-wrong, one’s morals are, shall we say, highly suspect.

But these are the New Puritans we’re dealing with here, people for whom real or perceived racial sins - and they get to determine what those are - are the worst sins ever, basically the same as raping a woman or preying on a child. And so, Milbank celebrates the fact that Megyn Kelly lost her job at NBC (does Milbank believe Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Sarah Silverman are also equivalent to child predators? Apparently, some of that old double-standard does exist!) for seemingly defending blackface and laments Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ electoral win despite the fact that he simply said the common phrase “monkey this up.”

Then, he blamed it on Trump, because of course he did.

“Some might think this all a witch hunt, to use the president’s term of art, but it is, at least in part, a salutary backlash against what Trump represents,” Milbank wrote. “Appalled by his racism, his vulgarity and his appalling treatment of women, we are reacting by holding public officials (and hopefully ourselves) to a higher standard. We are cleansing ourselves for the sins of Trump.”

“Cleansing ourselves” - a uniquely Puritanical concept. Except, this time ironically coming from a leftist individual who likely eschews most of what would be considered traditional Biblical morality. When every form of perversion becomes acceptable, liberals must signal their ‘virtue’ by righteously condemning what has now become the gravest of sins. And conservatives, fearing the backlash, more often than not join right in. And so the policing of the New Morality becomes even more strict than the old ever was.

Here’s a concept. Even taking into account the Michael Jackson skin darkening episode to which Northam HAS admitted and apologized for - an action Milbank still thinks disqualifies him the same as “sexual assault” and “preying on children” would - what if Ralph Northam is simply someone who made a mistake many years ago and has tried to atone for it, albeit wrong-headedly (because news flash: going liberal is NEVER the way to atone for past racial sins), ever since?

The answer, of course, is it doesn’t matter. Apologies don’t matter. Remorse doesn’t matter. There is no forgiveness. There is no repentance. There is only shaming and punishment, and being driven from whatever job or platform you are in.

It’s a new world the New Puritans have created and, Right or Left, we’re all living in it.

Tucker Carlson was at his best on Tuesday as he commented on Democrats’ obsessions against a border wall.

As Carlson noted, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and some of the others have termed the wall “immoral.”

But as he notes there are some walls that receive “indulgences” with which Democrats seem to have no problem.

“Well that couldn’t be clearer. But wait. There’s a caveat. There always is. Some walls aren’t evil at all. Some are necessary and good. So for those of you keeping track of the theology at home, we offer you now a brief tour of walls the Democratic Party has deemed perfectly moral,” Carlson began. “We begin with border barriers in Tunisia and Jordan. Democrats voted to pay for those walls, so obviously they’re okay. Israel has walls too.” [….]

Here in the U.S., it turns out we have plenty of moral walls too. Just this Sunday, Kamala Harris announced her campaign for president. For security, huge swaths of the streets of Oakland, California, were blocked—walled off, you might say. With her own security at stake, Senator Harris had no problem with this. They were moral walls. And there are many more moral walls. Benny Johnson of the The Daily Caller has set out across America to find more of them. And as you might have guessed, a huge number of the most moral walls we have protect the homes of Democratic donors.

Then they showed some of the walls of anti-Trump celebrities like Chelsea Handler, Jimmy Kimmel and Rob Reiner and big donors like George Soros.

There’s really only one immoral wall, Carlson observed, and it’s not in China.

The Chinese are highly moral, ask Dianne Feinstein. The immoral wall is the proposed wall on our southern border, the one that might keep future Democratic voters out. And for that reason alone, it’s immoral.”

Here’s Benny Johnson’s full wall extravaganza:

Attendees at the 90th Academy Awards won’t have rare LA rain to contend with today, but security will be in full force both on the streets around the Dolby Theatre and behind the scenes.

“This is one of the most secure events we do in the city,” LAPD Det. Meghan Aguilar told Deadline of the Oscars and the perimeters and street closures that have gone up around Hollywood and Highland for this evening’s Jimmy Kimmel-hosted ceremony.

With a united command including the LAPD, the LAFD, the Sheriff’s Department, Homeland Security, FBI and the Department of Transportation as well as other local and federal agencies, Sunday’s Oscars are on par with the high deployment levels of last year, law enforcement sources tell us. Inside the Dolby, private security from Tinseltown fave Security Industry Specialists will walk the halls and theatre and keep eyes and ears out for any disturbance.

In total about 500 personnel will be working security for the Academy Awards today within the more than one mile cordoned off zone around the Dolby.

“We’ll have extra officers and resources on site, including the Bomb Squad, air support, the canine unit as well as regular sweeps of the area,” Det. Aguilar added.

Hardly any protests today around the Sunset Boulevard and Hollywood and Highland perimeter. Over at the CNN building on Sunset and Cahuenga Blvds there was a small gathering of people rallying against the U.S. war in North Korea, but nothing unruly.

As is de rigueur, there’s a number of shops closed in the Hollywood and Highland area, including the famed TCL Chinese Theatre and the Red Line train stop in the area. In sum, there’s a mile stretch of Hollywood Boulevard closed between La Brea Avenue and Cahuenga Boulevard as well as Orange Drive leading up to the Roosevelt Hotel and the Hawthorn back street behind Jimmy Kimmel’s theater and the El Capitan. If you’re trying to drive North on Orange to the Magic Castle, good luck.

Los Angeles bills AMPAS for street closures and security during the show, a price that’s reportedly well north of $300K.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi might want to confiscate someone’s selfie stick.

CNN’s Jim Acosta was mocked across social media on Thursday for posting a video that was meant to downplay President Trump's claims of a border crisis -- but ended up supporting his argument that border barriers improve security.

“Here are some of the steel slats that the president’s been talking about,” Acosta said while reporting from the southern border. “But as we’re walking along here, we’re not seeing any kind of imminent danger.”

The CNN reporter added, “There are no migrants trying to rush toward this fence.”

Acosta then declared there was “no sign of the national emergency that the president has been talking about” and it was “tranquil” near him. He captioned the video, “I found some steel slats down on the border. But I don’t see anything resembling a national emergency situation.. at least not in the McAllen TX area of the border where Trump will be today.”

CNN’s chief White House correspondent – who seemingly uploaded the video from a local Burger King – is in Texas awaiting Trump’s border visit. While Acosta often clashes with the president and his aides, pundits suggested he did the president a favor this time.

Media watchdogs were quick to point out that the CNN reporter’s video helps prove Trump’s point that a wall or barrier along the Southern border could help prevent illegal border crossings.

“Jim Acosta just posted one of the biggest self owns ever,” social media strategist Caleb Hull responded. ‘He's walking along the border where there's a wall in place talking about how there's nothing that ‘resembles a national emergency situation’ and ‘there's no migrants trying to rush.’ That's because there's a wall, Jim.”

Others swiping at Acosta included one of his former CNN colleagues Peter Hamby.

Earlier this week, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway scolded Acosta during a press gaggle, referring to him as a "smarta--" unliked by other reporters.

Acosta – who has emerged as a household name for grandstanding when Trump and members of his administration are made available to the press – has been praised by liberal comedians such as Jimmy Kimmel and even appeared in the most recent season of the Netflix political drama “House of Cards.”

Last year, Acosta was briefly banned from the White House after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with Trump during a Nov. 7 press conference. During the now-infamous moment, Acosta refused to pass the microphone to a female White House aide.

Acosta’s press pass was restored on Nov. 19 after CNN argued that keeping him out of the White House violated the network and Acosta’s First and Fifth Amendment rights.

Kellyanne Conway embarrassed CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta during a press gaggle on Tuesday, referring to him as a "smarta--" unliked by other reporters.

Acosta asked Conway if she could promise that President Trump would tell the truth when addressing the nation on Tuesday night.

"Yes, Jim," Conway shot back, "Can you promise that you will? The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God? Am I allowed to mention 'God' to you?"

Acosta – who has emerged as a household name for interruptions when Trump and members of his administration are made available to the press – responded by telling Conway that he doesn’t have an “alternative facts” problem like she does.

"Make sure that goes viral. This is why I’m one of the only people around here who gives you the time of day," Conway said. "You’re such a smarta-- most of the time and I know you want this to go viral."

Conway then told Acosta that “a lot of these people” don’t like him, while pointing to his peers.

“Don't you put it back in my face for all corrections your network needs to issue,” she continued, mocking CNN. “I was on your network 25 or 26 times in 2018. I’m one of the last people here who even bothered to go on, and the disrespect you show to me personally, I’ll look past it.”

Acosta replied, “Ma’am.”

“Don't call me ma'am,” Conway responded.

While the rest of late-night TV was focused on President Donald Trump’s war with the NFL Monday night, Jimmy Kimmel was not going to let himself be distracted from the one topic that has dominated his show for the past week: health care.

The host said he had an “emotional weekend” meeting people in three different cities who just wanted to tell him how important the Affordable Care Act has been for them. “They came up to me and said, ‘Mr. Fallon, thank you for speaking out,’” Kimmel joked.

Kimmel noted that “common sense and decency prevailed” Friday when Sen. John McCain announced that he would not be voting for the Graham-Cassidy bill. As he did on Twitter following that news, the host thanks McCain for “pulling a Red Wedding” on the legislation. “The truth is, John McCain probably saved the Republican Party by doing this,” Kimmel said. “Because if you think Graham-Cassidy is unpopular now, wait until people have to live with it. Or not live with it.”

“This is one of those rare moments where we actually needed Congress to do nothing,” Kimmel said, “which is what they’re really good at, by the way.”

Kimmel then addressed The Daily Beast exclusive that revealed he had been in contact with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for months, discussing his health-care commentary. “All the propaganda outlets got very excited,” Kimmel said, saying they “went absolutely nuts, they called me a pawn and a mouthpiece, they said I was a puppet for the Democrats.”

In response to criticism from Fox & Friends Weekend host Pete Hegseth, Kimmel said, “Thank you man with a pony keg full of gel in his hair.”

With that, Kimmel said he needed to make a “confession” about something. “Here’s what happened,” he began. “My wife and I were worried about health care. We didn’t like what the Republicans were doing, so we decided to have a baby with congenital heart defects. And then once we had that going for us, I went on TV, I spoke out, and we may have stopped Cassidy-Graham. I still can’t believe we pulled it off, but we did!”

Finally, Kimmel applauded Sen. Susan Collins for coming out against the bill on Monday, meaning that it’s “almost certainly dead” in the Senate. “Or at the very least it’s on life support, which isn’t covered,” he joked.

“The best news is now I can go back to talking about the Kardashians,” Kimmel said. “You guys, Kylie’s pregnant!”

Modal Trigger

With the 2019 Golden Globe Awards now upon us, only one thing is for sure: Not a lot of people are going to watch. Ratings for the event last year fell 5 percent from their 2017 numbers and have fallen three out of the last four years. Oscars and Emmys? Even worse, with the 2018 shows declining 20 percent and 10 percent respectively from their 2017 ratings numbers.

Reversing this moribund picture calls for more than just tinkering along the edges. How can the creative class convince millions of Americans who have tuned out to give them a second chance? To answer that, I have two words.

James Woods.

Woods, notable for roles in movies like “Casino,” “Videodrome” and “Once Upon a Time in America” with two Emmy awards, a Golden Globe and two Oscar nominations under his belt, is also a Trump-loving conservative who has called the billionaire’s presidency a “once-in-a-century miracle.” Woods would give viewers a lot to chew on.

He regularly inveighs against liberal sacred cows to his nearly 2 million Twitter followers. When Congresswoman Frederica Wilson criticized Trump, for example, Woods called her a “#ParasiteRodeoClown” — a nod to her distinctive cowboy hat.

He has developed a passionate cult following among the same audience that briefly powered Roseanne Barr to the No. 1 show on television. That audience is still out there, still looking for someone who can be their ambassador to the cultural elite.

Plus, the actor knows how to improvise and can get laughs from liberals. His 2010 salute to Martin Scorsese at the AFI Life Achievement Awards — and a story about overly starched bell-bottom denim jeans — had the director in stitches.

“Marty actually has the oldest pair of denim bell-bottom jeans in history,” Woods said. “He has them done at like a sheet-metal place. I mean if you tripped over the guy you would get a gash in your ankle.”

Yes, there would be “outrage.” Hollywood’s Jacobins of propriety would express their horror. Screenshots of trollish old tweets (and there have been many) would make the rounds. Words like “racist” and “sexist” would fly a mile a minute. But those costs would be a pittance compared to the millions of new viewers he’d bring in (along with the old viewers who’d be excited to see something different for a change).

The current crop of awards shows are not working. They have become celebrations of rich and beautiful people basking in their own glory. From the stage, righteous political sermons are delivered, alienating huge swaths of a potential audience. This year’s Golden Globe hosts, Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, seem like nice, perfectly wholesome people — and that’s precisely the point.

Anyone who might offend is out. Kevin Hart’s tweets from 2011, which joked about homosexuality, led to a controversy that forced him to quit this year’s Oscars hosting gig, though he’s recently said he is “evaluating” whether or not to return. If he decides against it, the Oscars will struggle to find a replacement. Jimmy Kimmel, who has hosted the last two Oscars and the 2012 Emmys has, in the past, donned blackface for his comedy routines. And I also seem to remember a “chicks with d—s” joke from Jon Stewart, another Academy Awards veteran, that would likely be disqualifying today.

It’s hard to think of any comic in history who would escape today’s censors. Joan Rivers’ fashion police? I doubt it. Don Rickles’ insult comedy? Probably not. Even Jerry Seinfeld is now too hot for college campuses. Nobody who’s any fun can go through life without ruffling a feather or two.

So, in that spirit, why not go full bore with James Woods? Embracing the offensive and learning to laugh at ourselves should be things that bring us together.

An impromptu appearance by Woods at the 2017 Writers Guild Awards was proof of that. There was politics and a bit of tension — and it worked.

“Donald Trump I want to be very careful making jokes about, one, because I don’t want to be kicked to death by James Woods backstage,” Patton Oswalt said from the podium.

“Buy a pair of shoes,” Woods shot back, mounting the stage, ripping off one of Oswalt’s sneakers and brandishing it to the audience. “This is an awards show!”

The audience ate it up. For all this and more, you can mark me down as #TeamWoods. He may not be the host you want, but for struggling awards shows, he’s what America needs.

Millions of people in this country want the wall. Every Trump voter sent a message back in 2016 that building the wall is a top priority for many in this country. Democrats tell us that the American people don’t want a wall. That’s nonsense. If you aren’t convinced, check out the GoFundMe that triple amputee and Iraq War veteran Brian Kolfage put together to fund the wall. It has raised a staggering amount of money in a very short amount of time.

The campaign was launched on Sunday night December 16th.

The GoFundMe page passed $17 million in ten days.

That’s big league.

How have liberals treated Kolfage? Jimmy Kimmel mocked him and called him “dopey”

Apparently, that has caused unhinged liberals to send death threats to Kolfage and his young children.

As we previously reported, Kolfage is seeking to use the GoFundMe platform to collect a record-breaking $1 billion of publicly-raised money, all in the name of border security.

“The government has accepted large private donations before, most recently a billionaire donated $7.5 Million to fund half of the Washington Monument repairs in 2012; this is no different,” the veteran wrote on the donation page’s description.

According to the description, Kolfage is looking to help fulfill the will of the American people who elected President Trump and support his agenda: “Like a majority of those American citizens who voted to elect President Donald J Trump, we voted for him to Make America Great Again. President Trump’s main campaign promise was to BUILD THE WALL. And as he’s followed through on just about every promise so far, this wall project needs to be completed still.”

Kolfage said he is “deeply invested” to the United States after he sacrificed three limbs and more defending the country overseas. Now, the veteran is bringing his same fighting spirit to raise funds for a southern border wall.

More than 280,000 people have contributed to the fund over the past nine days.

As the Epoch Times reports, Kolfage has received hate mail and even death threats over his fundraising effort.

“After Alyssa Milano and Jimmy Kimmel took it upon themselves to personally attack me it blew up in their faces. The left-wingers took that as their dog whistle and began attacking me, my wife and our children,” the triple-amputee said to the Gateway Pundit per the report.

Check it out:

Last week, Kimmel called the hundreds of thousands of people who donated to the GoFundMe, which stands at about $16.5 million, “dopey people” and said they are “dipping into their meth money.”

Milano had tweeted: “Let’s #GoFundTheWall while not taking care of our veterans. Cool. Cool. Cool.” Actor James Woods responded: “Uh, this effort was initiated by a veteran, who not incidentally is a triple amputee. Just FYI…”

Kolfage sent over alleged hate mail screenshots to the Gateway Pundit. Many of the messages referenced his military service and amputated limbs.

One man, named Carlos Lopez, said the loss of Kolfage’s limbs was “pre-karma,” adding that “you are no patriot,” according to a screenshot. Another person said, “I hope u lose both of your arms as well (sic).”

As Congress has yet to accept or reject a proposal providing $5 billion to fund a wall along the U.S. southern border, people have decided to take matters into their own hands with different crowdfunding campaigns in support of and against the border wall.

Brian Kolfage, a triple-amputee military veteran and Purple Heart recipient, started a GoFundMe campaign on December 16 called “We the People Will Fund the Wall,” to convince the federal government to allocate $1 billion to secure the border.

As of Monday afternoon, more than 272,000 people have raised over $16.5 million out of its $1 billion goal.

“As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today. Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society,” Kolfage wrote on the page.

“I have grandparents who immigrated to America legally, they did it the correct way and it’s time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT! It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling,” he continued.

Kolfage’s campaign created a stir among leftists, inspiring one left-wing to create a competing GoFundMe campaign to raise money for the migrants attempting to illegally cross the border.

Left-wing activist and transgender military veteran Charlotte Clymer to start a competing GoFundMe campaign on December 19 called “Ladders to Get Over Trump’s Wall” to raise money for illegal aliens trying to seek asylum in the U.S.

Clymer wrote:

We saw some folks are raising money for a border wall to keep out our migrant siblings and fellow human beings, who are fleeing violence and persecution and whose tragically-underpaid labor is essential to the U.S. economy. Seems like a bad idea on countless levels for everyone involved. Maybe we should focus on human rights and creating a community that reflects our supposed values.

Clymer’s campaign raised more than $142,000 out of $100 million from nearly 6,500 donors as of Monday afternoon—a much smaller sum than Kolfage’s initial campaign.

Kolfage’s viral campaign has also caught the attention of reporters and late night talk show hosts who have tried to disparage his campaign.

Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel attacked the donors of Kolfage’s campaign as “dopey people…dipping into their meth money,” and a Washington Post reporter tried and failed to shut down Kolfage’s fundraiser because he claimed the fundraiser discriminated against Latinos.

Jimmy Kimmel used his show to trash the nearly 250,000 people who have donated to a GoFundMe for a border wall, calling them “dopey people” and saying that they are “dipping into their meth money.”

The attack on conservatives who want to secure on borders came during his show on Thursday evening.

The fundraiser has raised nearly $15 million in less than a week.

Kimmel began his segment by trashing President Donald Trump over the government shutdown, saying “basically, Trump is taking paychecks from federal employees at Christmas time to punish Congress for not paying for a wall he swore 500 times Mexico would be paying for. So Feliz Navidad, everyone. But here’s the twist. The twist is the President might not need Mexico or Congress to pay for the wall at all because there are some very dopey people ready to pay for it themselves.”

Kimmel then went on to insult nearly a quarter of a million people, and taking aim at the GoFundMe creator, Brian Kolfage, an Iraq War veteran and three-time amputee.

“This Trump supporter, a guy named Brian Kolfage, started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $1 billion for the wall. He launched it on Sunday. It’s already up to almost $9 million,” Kimmel began.

“People, this is what people do with their disposable income when they don’t have loans from college to pay off. Donating money for a wall that will never exist. It’s like starting a college fund for Harry Potter. It’s a, it’s a waste. A more useful thing to do with your money would be to go outside and feed it to a bird but you do have to admire the sacrifice they’re making. I mean, a lot of these people are dipping into their meth money for this,” Kimmel asserted.

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel peddled a list of fake news stories to his audience on Friday, one of which was the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

But just how much fake news is in this video bit? Turns out a lot.

Kimmel took his Jimmy Kimmel Live cameras out on the street in California to ask folks on the street what they felt about stories in the news this year in a segment he called “Lie Witness News.”

For instance, the woman behind the microphone asked passersby what they thought of “this year’s deaths” of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and President Andrew Jackson — each of whom died in 1791 and 1845 respectively.

The folks were also asked about other false stories such as what they thought of President Trump’s nuclear annihilation of North Korea, the Supreme Court’s ruling that men could marry a smartphone, and the time scientists “brought back” a saber-toothed tiger.

Kimmel’s fake news purveyor also asked one fellow how he felt when Donald Trump was impeached and sent to jail.

Each of the people on the video seemed to think all the fake news stories they were told were real. At least, that is what Kimmel’s audience was supposed to think.

But, while it might seem fun to laugh at the idiots on the street, it appears that there is more being faked than it appears. In fact, according to Mashable’s Brian Koerber, not only are the news stories “fake,” but the people on the screen are also “fake,” at least to the extent that they are already in on the joke and are not actually reacting as if they believed the fake news being presented to them.

Some sources allege the whole video is a “bit” from front to back. The news is fake and so are the reactions of the “people on the street.”

One woman who appeared in one of Kimmel’s past “Lie Witness News” bits admitted that she was in on the joke and trolled Kimmel right back.

“It is fake, but it’s all in good fun! The people being interviewed know that the camera person is kidding,” said Colleen McEachern, who appeared in one of Kimmel’s Super Bowl-themed “Lie Witness News” videos.

“I don’t know if you can see it, but when I get asked the question, you can see that I’m trying to figure out what they want me to answer with. I knew that the Super Bowl was a week from that day, but I wanted to get on TV so I said something else,” she added.

McEachern also noted that she watched as fan after fan was filmed giving proper, truthful answers and not one of them made it to the final reel.

Koerber also found a person who appeared in a different “Lie Witness News” video who said that Kimme’s post-production team edited her replies to make her look clueless. Indeed, this person even told Koerber that she was coached by Kimmel’s film crew so that she would give them what they wanted for the bit.

“It was fake. They replaced some of the band names in post and also used my description of other groups/bands as answers to other questions,” the woman said. She also told Mashable that crew members told participants to “play along.”

She knew it was all fake from the word go, she said. “I figured, “Why not?” she said admitting that she just wanted to be on TV.

Koerber asked Kimmel’s people about these claims, but they flatly denied all allegations that the people on their “Lie Witness News” bits were coached.

This latest prank video comes on the tail of an entire year of Jimmy Kimmel complaining about “fake news.”

ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel attacked supporters of the border wall crowd fund effort in a rant Thursday, accusing them of being “very dopey people” who are donating their “meth money.”

“The president might not need Mexico or Congress to pay for the wall at all, because there’s some very dopey people ready to pay for it themselves,” Jimmy Kimmel joked.

“This Trump supporter, Brian Kolfage, started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $1 billion for the wall. He launched it on Sunday, it’s already up to almost $9 million. This is what people do with their disposable income when they don’t have loans from college to pay off.”

But, you do have to admire the sacrifice they’re making — I mean, a lot of these people are dipping into their meth money for this.”

Kimmel wasn’t the only Hollywood leftist to respond to the effort to crowd fund the border wall with mockery and scorn.

Celebrity activist Alyssa Milano attacked the efforts of founder Brian Kolfage, who is a triple amputee and Iraq veteran, saying that the money being used is “not taking care of our veterans.”

Uh, this effort was initiated by a veteran, who not incidentally is a triple amputee. Just FYI… https://t.co/fJN0hT10eV

On the GoFundMe page, Kolfage urges people to donate, warning about the effects of illegal immigration on the United States.

“As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today. Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society,” he said.

Kimmel has been on a roll this week, making headlines for a skit in which God and Satan argue over who has to have Ted Cruz in the afterlife. In the skit, “God” says that he doesn’t want to look at “that face for eternity,” in reference to Cruz.

The Gateway Pundit

Deranged leftists have been sending triple-amputee veteran Brian Kolfage mountains of abuse after he was trashed by the Daily Beast, Jimmy Kimmel, Alyssa Milano and other high-profile liberals.

The hate mail provided to the Gateway Pundit contains appalling statements such as people asking if his brain was “amputated too,” calling him a “handicapped bitch,” telling him to commit suicide, wishing harm upon his children and mocking him for having lost his limbs while fighting for this nation.

“After Alyssa Milano and Jimmy Kimmel took it upon themselves to personally attack me it blew up in their faces. The left wingers took that as their dog whistle and began attacking me, my wife and our children,” Kolfage told The Gateway Pundit.

On Thursday, Kimmel used his show to trash the nearly 260,000 people who have donated nearly $16 million to the GoFundMe in less than a week, calling them “dopey people” and saying that they are “dipping into their meth money.”

Dozens of examples of the vitriol and threats were provided to the Gateway Pundit, some of which we are now publishing — unedited.

“Liberals are showing their true colors again. When they don’t agree with something they go low… real low. And it’s because this generation has become weak immature brats who can’t handle a normal debate without being triggered by use of wrong pronouns or a white male; welcome to the real world where safe spaces don’t exist,” Kolfage said.

The treatment of Kolfage for simply attempting to raise money for a cause he believes in is astonishing.

“We saw this stuff with Justice Kavanaugh, and now my family faces it,” Kolfage added.

One man, Carlos Lopez, told the veteran that he believes the loss of his limbs while fighting for this country was “pre-karma.”

Multiple people have urged the veteran to commit suicide.

According to the latest report, 16.8 veterans and 3.8 active-duty servicemembers, guardsmen or reservists kill themselves every day.

Others wished for the deaths of Kolfage’s wife and young children.

“God forbid a veteran who gave 3 limbs for this nation have a public opinion about politics. I’m truly embarrassed for them. Maybe their parents didn’t give them enough love growing up or they were neglected; they have so much hate inside. I just feel sorry for them that they live like this. Maybe they are just jealous that a triple amputee is more successful than them?” Kolfage pondered. “I lost 3 limbs and overcame it. I live an incredible life and I wouldn’t take anything back. I built a very successful company called Military Grade Coffee with my best friends and I have the most beautiful family. I may have no legs but I’m living the American dream!”

He concluded that, “I hope these people find peace and get the psychological help they do truly. Americans support the border wall and they need to get over it. Welcome to the real world.”

It isn’t just Kolfage that is under threat, Twitter accounts have also been doxing donors to the GoFundMe using their Facebook accounts. Other weirdo activists have also been crowdfunding ladders to help illegal aliens get over the wall if it is funded (the funds will likely go to an organization that does legal work for illegal aliens).

Additionally, activist reporters have been trying to get the fundraiser kicked off of the platform.

Luckily, it hasn’t been all bad. There have been some extremely positive and encouraging messages in the mix as well.

Following Kevin Hart’s Oscars departure, many names have surfaced as possible replacements, but let me save the Academy time.

U.S.

Published  4 months ago

(Reuters) - Comedian Kevin Hart stepped down on Thursday from hosting the 2019 Oscar ceremony after “insensitive words” about gays he tweeted in the past resurfaced online.

The 39-year-old comedian and “Ride Along” actor had announced on Tuesday that he would host the Academy Awards, the film industry’s highest honors.

“I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscar’s ... this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists,” Hart said in a tweet late on Thursday.

“I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past,” he tweeted.

In one of the old tweets, Hart described an actor’s picture as a “gay billboard for AIDS”. In another he said if his son were playing with a doll’s house, he would break it over his head and tell him to stop being gay.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which organizes the Oscars, was not immediately available for comment.

Chad Griffin, the president of the Washington DC-based LGBTQ advocacy group, The Human Rights Campaign, responded to Hart on Twitter late Thursday.

“You have a rare opportunity to take responsibility, teach people in this moment, & send a message to LBGTQ youth that they matter & deserve dignity & respect,” Griffin wrote.

Hart, who also starred in the 2017 film “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”, would have followed talk show host Jimmy Kimmel who hosted the Oscars in 2018 and 2017.

Hart, writing on his Instagram page this week, called the gig “the opportunity of a lifetime”.

“I am so happy to say that the day has finally come for me to host the Oscars,” he said.

The Academy responded on Twitter: “Welcome to the family.”

Hosting the Oscars is one of the most prestigious and difficult jobs in show business, navigating the expectations of the A-list audience in the theater and millions of people watching on television, with a combination of topical and insider jokes.

Hart, who is African-American, would have been one of just a handful of black Oscar hosts over the past 90 years, including Chris Rock, Whoopi Goldberg and Sammy Davis Jr.

Oscar nominations will be announced on Jan. 22, with the 2019 televised ceremony taking place in Hollywood on Feb. 24.

Daily Wire

Published  5 months ago

Now that NBC has handed Megyn Kelly her walking papers for her remarks about Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps, who was called racist for darkening her skin to dress as Diana Ross, it should be noted that America's major news networks seem to be rather inconsistent about the darkening of skin for comedic purposes. Back in 2000, Jimmy Kimmel notoriously appeared in blackface to pretend he was NBA Hall of Famer Karl Malone on Comedy Central's "The Man Show."

Kelly, speaking of Lesseps, stated, “And people said that that was racist. And I don’t know! I thought like, who doesn’t love Diana Ross? She wants to look like Diana Ross for one day, and I don’t know how that got racist on Halloween.”

That got her fired.

Kimmel, on the other hand, had this to say as he mimicked Malone: (note the broken English)

Sometime at night, Karl Malone look up at sky and say, “What the hell goin’ on up there? Do UFO live on other planet, phonin’ home like E.T.?’ Karl Malone read on TV about white people gettin’ deducted (sic) by alien, speakin’ all kind of hell up they butt. And that’s a damn thing. Now, Karl Malone never seen no flyin’ saucer itself, but if he do, that goin’ to be a spooky time. That’s why Karl Malone say, ‘Government got to step up and give 102% to keepin’ them little green men of this here earth, ‘cause the day them dudes sticks somethin’ up Karl Malone butt, well, that ain’t gonna be no good time for nobody, especially Karl Malone butt. Listen up, E.T.’ you better stay the hell back. Nanoo, nanoo. Until next time, this here Karl Malone.

As The Daily Wire noted after Kelly was fired:

NBC News played up her comments, featuring them on Lester Holt’s nightly news show; the head of NBC News, Andy Lack, blasted Kelly on Wednesday, stating, “There is no other way to put this: I condemn those remarks; there is no place on our air or in this workplace for them.”

But Kimmel? He not only wore blackface, he mocked Malone as being unable to speak articulate English. Where is ABC on this crucial issue?

This couldn’t have anything to do with ratings, could it? As The Wrap reported of Kelly’s ratings:

From September 2017 to September 2018, Kelly’s 9 a.m. ET show fell 13 percent overall from its predecessor (2.8 million vs. 2.4 million), which was just a third hour of the “Today” show, hosted by Tamron Hall and Al Roker. The decline versus Septembers 2016-2017 was twice as bad on a percentage basis among adults 25-54, the key demographic for news programming.

“Megyn Kelly Today” also shed 26 percent of its viewers ages 18-49, and it was actually off two points more than that among young women ...

Here are her total-viewer drops per quarter when compared with the final year of the previous format:

Q4 2017: -19.49%

Q1 2018: -17.16%

Q2 2018: -9.88%

Q3 2018: -4.79%

Megyn Kelly lost her job at NBC within 48 hours of saying it was considered okay when she was a child for white people to put on “blackface” as long as they “were dressing up as a character.” Three popular anti-Trump comedians did much more than simply talk about it — and they are all still employed.

Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman actually dressed in “blackface” themselves at some point during their career.

Kimmel, while the host of Comedy Central’s “The Man Show,” dressed up more than once in blackface makeup, a bald cap and a body suit to portray former Utah Jazz basketball star Karl Malone as an inarticulate, dim-witted person who had difficulty pronouncing words correctly.

While Jimmy Fallon was hosting the Golden Globes in 2017 his Chris Rock impression reminded the producers of the below video of one he did while at Saturday Night Live in 2000 – in blackface.

In 2007, comedian Sarah Silverman donned “the most racist blackface” in a comedy sketch on “The Sarah Silverman Program,” a move she later said she regrets.

Kelly was fired for the following statement made Tuesday:

“What is racist?” said Kelly. “You do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface for Halloween or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween. Like back when I was a kid it was okay if you were dressing up as a character.” (RELATED: MEGYN KELLY REPORTEDLY OUT AT NBC AFTER ‘BLACKFACE’ COMMENTS)

ABC late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel took the stage on Tuesday and jokingly suggested that his “compromise” to the battle of Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination is to chop off the judge’s “pesky penis,” should he be confirmed.

Kimmel launched into the Kavanaugh rancor midway through his monologue, noting a New Yorker article published over the weekend in which Deborah Ramirez alleged that as a drunken Yale University freshman, Brett Kavanaugh “exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party.” Ramirez claimed she had “significant gaps in her memories” regarding the alleged encounter. Ramirez’s college best friend also told the paper she “never heard of” the incident in question.

Jimmy Kimmel cut to a clip of Judge Kavanaugh and his wife’s Fox News interview on Monday, in which the Supreme Court nominee called allegations from Christine Blasey Ford false and explained that he was a virgin in high school and college.

“Thank you for admitting that,” Kimmel said in response to the Kavanaugh clip. “He was a virgin until many years after. So if he doesn’t get to be on the Supreme Court, maybe he’ll be The Bachelor.”

Kavanaugh has reportedly produced calendars from 1982, which purportedly prove he was out of town during the time in which Ford says he attempted to grope her at a house party.

“What 17-year-old keeps calendars of his social engagements?” Kimmel asked. “No wonder he was a virgin.”

Kimmel concluded his Kavanaugh monologue with a gruesome suggestion.

“Hear me out on this,” Kimmel began “So Kavanaugh gets confirmed to the Supreme Court, OK? Well, in return we get to cut that pesky penis of his off in front of everyone.”

Jimmy Kimmel employed age-old homophobic tactics Thursday night to attack a Christian cake artist for refusing to bake a transgender-themed cake.

Like a gay-baiting schoolboy, Kimmel taunted Jack Phillips — the Colorado cake artist who just won a Supreme Court case protecting his religious freedom and freedom from compelled speech — as a closeted gay man.

Using homosexuality as a pejorative, which is the very definition of homophobia, Kimmel not only accused Phillips of being gay, but mocked him for looking like a woman.

“It’s funny because this is a guy who spends all day, every day, meticulously designing flowers out of icing — his whole life is gay, okay?” Kimmel said.

“I don’t know if he’s worried the wrong cake might bring that to life or what.” Kimmel taunted, because ha ha you might be gay.

What’s next? Will Kimmel taunt people because they might be Jewish or black?

Kimmel was far from done.

“And I will add, this is Jack Phillips, the totally straight cake baker — you would think that someone who looks like the Reba McEntire version of Colonel Sanders would be more sympathetic to gender identity issues.”

Interestingly enough, Phillips has said he would never denigrate homosexuals like Kimmel did Thursday night.

Back in June, on top of cakes that slander America or racial groups, Phillips told the Today Show, he would never design a cake that “would disparage anyone who identifies as LGBT.”

Kimmel, however, is more than willing to disparage those who identify as LGBT — and is doing so on network television by using their identity as an insult.

Something else Kimmel fails to grasp is the slippery slope that would come with giving the government the power to intimidate artists into creating art, into participating in behavior that violates their consciences.

If the government can force a cake artist to make a certain kind of art, why not late-night comedians? What would stop the government from telling Kimmel or Colbert or Fallon that they must tell jokes that mock leftists or abortion or same-sex marriage or transgenderism?

Leftists like Kimmel are now so blinded by ideology they are not only no longer standing up for artistic freedom, they are revealing a latent homophobia to express their seething anti-Christian bigotry.

Kanye West sat down with Jimmy Kimmel and discussed politics and his support for President Donald Trump.

Before probing West’s ideology, Kimmel began by asking the rapper if had any interest in designing the suits for Space Force if the president ever asks him.

“I’m into designing,” West chuckled.

West told Kimmel how passionate his wife Kim Kardashian was when helping Alice Johnson be granted clemency after been sentenced for life for a first-time drug offense with her visit to the White House.

“Were you ever concerned about her being alone in the Oval Office with President Trump?” Kimmel asked.

“Well, he is a player,” West smirked.

On the backlash he faced for expressing support for Trump, he began by comparing Trump to his cousin who is locked up for murder and that he still loves him even though he did a bad thing.

“Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me. And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over,” Kanye West told Kimmel. “I’d get kicked out of the black community because blacks- we’re supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only like, we can only be Democrats and all. So, even when I said it right before I went to the hospital and I expressed myself, and when I came out I had lost my confidence. So I didn’t have the confidence to take on the world and the possible backlash and it took me a year and a half have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat no matter what the consequences were. And what it represented to me is not about policies because I’m not a politician like that, but it represented overcoming fear and doing what you felt, no matter what anyone said, in saying, you can’t bully me. Liberals can’t bully me, news can’t bully me, the hip-hop community, they can’t bully me. Because at that point, if I’m afraid to be me, I’m no longer Ye. That’s what makes Ye.

He added that he “enjoys” when people are mad at him.

The full statement provided to The Gateway Pundit by the artists reads as follows:

In Donald Trump’s “The Art of the Deal” the President instructs that if someone fucks you over, you have to fuck them back twice as hard. Because we Russian bots are learning machines, though, we may have taken it to the extreme. Rip up the President’s Walk Of Fame star or try to have it removed – like you’re the Mayor of West Hollywood or something — and thirty more will pop up. “Strike me down and I will become more powerful than you could ever imagine” Trump tapped into his typewriter when he wrote Star Wars. We are seeing his prophetic words play out as we speak. Or did you SpaceForce deniers think that movie was fiction? When are you going to realize that you’ve sided with the Empire? Keep it up, “Resistors”. We’re going to ride your baby-tantrum tactics all the way to victory in 2020 and beyond. Keep it up, “Resistors”. And your bathroom will be tiled with Trump Stars by the time he boards Marine One on January 20, 2025. The idiots pick-axing Trump’s star on the Walk of Fame are the same as the Whining Acostas and High-Pitch Stelters of the fake media. They don’t understand that the Real Trump has infected America with winning fever, and like his star has infected the Walk of Fame — literally massing around and isolating cancerous stars like Blubbering Rob Reiner and Crying Jimmy Kimmel — the fever is spreading.

The artists also provided TGP with additional photos of the art.

It is rumored that Milo Yiannopolous funded the stars, but neither camp would confirm or deny the speculation. The speculation continued to gain steam after the controversial author and journalist posted a photo of the stars to his Instagram — vowing to make more. The effort cost roughly $1,000.

Though they are extremely durable, it seems that they have already been peeled off as local businesses were worried about another maniac coming by with a pick ax.

Rapper Kanye West doubled down on his support for President Donald Trump on Thursday, telling liberal talk show host Jimmy Kimmel that “liberals can’t bully me.”

During an interview on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” West was asked almost immediately about his support for the president. Without any hesitation, the rapper stared down Kimmel and said he wasn’t going to change his opinion on something because extreme leftists tried to bully him.

West attempted to describe his support for Trump by comparing the situation to his cousin who he said is in jail. West said even though his cousin did something bad, he still loves him. The rapper explained that even though Trump does and says things he may not agree with, he loves him for all of the good things that he has done and said.

West noted that people who are against Trump, like Kimmel, try tried to shame and pressure him every time he voices support for Trump.

Here’s how West described it:

“Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me. And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over. I’d get kicked out of the black community because blacks — we’re supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only, like, we can only be Democrats and all.”

West said it took him more than a year to have the “confidence to stand up” and publicly admit that he supported the president.

“I didn’t have the confidence to take on the world and the possible backlash and it took me a year and a half to have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat no matter what the consequences were. And what it represented to me is not about policies — because I’m not a politician like that.”

“But it represented overcoming fear and doing what you felt, no matter what anyone said, in saying, you can’t bully me. Liberals can’t bully me, news can’t bully me, the hip-hop community — they can’t bully me.“

Watch below:

The liberal media lost its mind in May when West and President Donald Trump shared admiration for one another on Twitter.

Kanye tweeted: “You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”

You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.

Trump responded a few hours later, writing: “Thank you Kanye, very cool!”

Thank you Kanye, very cool! https://t.co/vRIC87M21X

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 25, 2018

Just before Trump responded to West, the rapper tweeted a picture of himself wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

The reaction to Trump and West praising one another was mostly predictable, with conservatives applauding the relationship and liberals losing their mind and claiming West needs to be committed to a mental institution.

But West’s interview with Kimmel shows that the rapper is brave enough to voice an opinion that differs from the one shared by almost all of Hollywood.

With President Trump tipping a higher mark than his predecessor in recent polling; actually topping the 50 % mark in a recent Rasmussen Report, this next poll will sure get the media in a frenzy.

A brand new poll just released has the President’s support among black voters up a whopping 14%!

Rasmussen’s daily Presidential Tracking Poll released late Thursday shows a significant spike in support from the black community, nearly doubling President Trump’s support among that demographic from numbers polled 1 year ago:

Today’s @realDonaldTrump approval ratings among black voters: 29%

This time last year: 15%https://t.co/mazBCWoIMy @POTUS @realDonaldTrump pic.twitter.com/83OduvXDdf

— Rasmussen Reports (@Rasmussen_Poll) August 2, 2018

At this time last year, he was at 15% and now he is at 29% – amazing!

These numbers coupled with the recent public support Rapper Kanye West has shown for President Trump, the media’s ability to cope may surpass the denial stage of grief.

The media and leading Democrats have for some time attempted to paint The President as a racist. A narrative in which many see right through, however some who are zombified by the Mainstream Media have adopted the narrative and gone to deep lengths to carry it’s message even farther.

Recently and following Kanye’s public support of President Trump, Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian took to the late show with Jimmy Kimmel and reaffirmed her husband’s support for President Trump and added that she had nothing bad to say about the President.

Kim Kardashian West declined to join with President Trump’s many celebrity critics in an appearance with late-night host Jimmy Kimmel:

With The President’s support among Black voters reaching 29%, one can only assume that the 180 degree turn Democrats have made on illegal immigration may surely have something to do with a new TARGET demographic they may be seeking..

Do you think there is a correlation between the Democrats support for Illegal Immigrants and their right to vote and the increasing number of black and minority voters that have began to support the President?

Kim Kardashian West declined to join with President Trump's many celebrity critics in an appearance with late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.

In the interview on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Kardashian discussed her visit to the Oval Office, where she successfully convinced Trump to commute the prison sentence of Alice Johnson, a nonviolent drug offender.

"I'm hopeful that more good things are going to come out of our conversations," she said, telling Kimmel she has a list compiled of other incarcerated individuals.

She said she receives a "stack of letters" every day and recently visited a women's detention center.

Kimmel jokingly asked her if first lady Melania Trump was on the list of "prisoners" who may be released.

The reality TV mega-star revealed she was naked when Trump called a few months ago to notify her of Johnson's clemency and she had to quickly put on a robe. Kardashian said she immediately broke the news to Johnson and both cried over the phone.

"That's really great," said Kimmel, asking if Kardashian's husband, Kanye West, still supports Trump.

She said West may not agree with many of Trump's policies, but he respects the way Trump became president when nobody believed he could do it.

Kardashian said she doesn't agree with all of the president's policies either, but has "nothing bad to say about the president."

Comedian Roseanne Barr on Friday released a video accusing ABC of firing her because she voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

In the 1:06-long clip published on YouTube, Barr touches on a handful of topics, including her racially charged tweet in which she compared former senior Obama aide Valerie Jarrett to an ape and why she believes ABC fired her from massively successful Roseanne reboot.

“Hi, this is Roseanne Barr and I’d like to welcome you to my own studio, where I’m able to speak for myself to my fellow and sister Americans without the filter of the biased media,” Barr began. “This was my statement from the very beginning, and it will continue to be forever because it is the truth.

“When ABC called and asked me to explain my ‘egregious and unforgivable tweet,’ I told them I thought Valerie Jarrett was white. And I also said I am willing to go on The View, Jimmy Kimmel, or whatever other show you want me to go on and explain that to my audience,” the comedian continued.

Barr lamented Hollywood’s notorious double standard against conservative actors and actresses, noting ABC promptly canceled Roseanne before one sponsor bailed on the program because she supports Donald Trump. “Now, instead what happened was about 40 minutes after that my show was canceled before even one advertiser pulled out and I was labeled a racist,” she explained. Why, you ask? Well, the answer is simple. It’s because I voted for Donald Trump and that is not allowed in Hollywood,” Barr explained.

The 65-year-old later apologized for the inflammatory tweet about Jarrett, claiming that it was a “bad joke” and“in bad taste.” “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks,” Barr said. “I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.”

ABC in June announced it ordered 10 episodes of a Conner family sitcom without Roseanne Barr scheduled to air this fall. In a statement issued by the show’s producer, Barr said she agreed to the settlement to save the jobs of 200 cast and crew members.

“The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago,” ABC said in a statement. “We all came back last season because we wanted to tell stories about the challenges facing a working-class family today. We are so happy to have the opportunity to return with the cast and crew to continue to share those stories through love and laughter.”

Roseanne ended its rebooted season with a strong 2.4 rating with a /11 share with roughly 10.3 million viewers watching the Conners family discuss hot-button issue of illegal immigration.

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday deleted a video clip from Twitter and YouTube that falsely informed viewers that a proposed Federal Communications Commission rule would force them to pay hundreds of dollars to complain to the FCC.

“The FCC is considering a plan that would require U.S. citizens to pay $225 to make a complaint. So, if you’re mad about how high your cable bill is, soon you can pay the government $225 to complain about it,” the host of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” told his viewers Wednesday night.

“Boy, they really have the fingers on the pulse of us, don’t they? It’s shameless, really. Time and time again this administration, they side with the big corporations over people,” the comedian riffed. He then acted out a skit in which a coffee shop customer had to pay $225 to complain about a barista spitting in his drink.

But Kimmel appears to have botched the facts.

Americans aren’t charged to file informal complaints through the FCC Consumer Complaint Center, a fact that won’t change under any rule being considered by the FCC.

It also already costs $225 for consumers to file a formal complaint — a process the FCC describes as similar to a court proceeding — and the proposed language change wouldn’t have affected that, either.

Kimmel blamed the current FCC for pre-existing policies while misrepresenting how those policies work.

His critique was similar to Democratic talking points about the rule change — talking points that The Washington Post found clashed with the facts. (The Post also noted Thursday that the FCC appears to be backing off the change for now.)

Kimmel tweeted out a video of the segment on Thursday but later deleted it from Twitter following complaints about the segment’s inaccuracy. Kimmel’s show also removed the clip from its official YouTube channel.

An ABC spokesperson did not return a request for comment regarding Kimmel’s misinformation and the deleted videos.

“The actual FCC item itself isn’t that interesting; it doesn’t actually change the informal complaint process. The firestorm around it is based on a misunderstanding that started with the letter from some Congressional Dems to the FCC,” Joe Kane, a technology policy fellow with the R Street Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Lots of news sites (starting with the now-updated Verge piece, I think) seized on that letter’s misunderstanding that consumers would have to pay $225 for a complaint. It basically just became a thing for reporters who already don’t like the Chairman to paint him as anti-consumer. But again, that’s really not what’s happening,” Kane said.

He continued:

“The issue in question is footnote 14 of the report and order that talks about the change in the FCC’s complain process. There is currently a process for informal complaints which, even before this change, were basically just forwarded to the company you have a complaint about. If the company obviously resolves it, then the matter is done. If they don’t, then you move to the formal complaint process. The old language says that the escalation to formal complaint can happen if the person making the complaint is unhappy with how the company or the Commission has resolved the issue. The change is to cut the language about the Commission resolving the issue because the FCC doesn’t do the resolving of informal complaints.”

“The long and short of it is both the old and new rules say you can file an informal complaint, and if you don’t like how it turns out, you can file a formal complaint. Nothing that substantive is changing,” Kane concluded.

“There might be good reason for the FCC to clarify their footnote and the language in the updated reg to resolve some of this confusion, but it definitely doesn’t warrant the outcry that some people are making about it.”

Actor Samuel L. Jackson took to Twitter on Friday and posted a tweet dedicated to President Donald Trump’s birthday, but several social media users accused the Avengers star of sending an anti-gay slur.

“Must have been a party at The White House, Mitch, Paul, Rudy & others were spotted wearing knee pads & carrying these lined up outside. Happy Birthday,” Jackson captioned his tweet, which included an image of “After Dick Mints” with the tagline “going down?”

Must have been a party at The White House, Mitch, Paul, Rudy & others were spotted wearing knee pads & carrying these lined up outside. Happy Birthday? pic.twitter.com/VzTokZoUjg

The mints and the mention of knee pads left many to assume Jackson was suggesting that President Trump was receiving birthday oral sex from the aforementioned Republican lawmakers.

“Did you and Joy Reid get hacked by the same person?” one Twitter user asked Jackson, a reference to embattle MSNBC host Joy Reid whose come under heavy fire for having several homophobic posts published on her blog and later claimed that her site was hacked.

“Gay shaming?” actor Adam Baldwin asked Jackson.

“Homophobic as fuck [sic] Sam,” another user said.

One Twitter user tweeted at Capital One, asking if the major credit card company endorses this language from one of its national spokesmen.

The backlash was intense and was punctuated by one user saying, “Homophobic Comments like this are causing shrinkage of the Democrat Party base.”

Nearly two years after telling late-night host Jimmy Kimmel he’d move to South Africa if Trump won the election, Samuel L. Jackson is still living in the U.S. bashing the president.

It was the Thunderdome from “Mad Max” or the coliseum from “Spartacus,” if either Max or Sparty were two, middle-aged American men playing a slow-motion car-crash of half-court basketball for charity and political one upsmanship.

Conservative Texas Sen. Ted Cruz triumphed over liberal ABC late-night host/comedian Jimmy Kimmel with a hard-won 11-9 victory in the first Blobfish Basketball Classic at Texas Southern University’s Health and Physical Education Arena Saturday. The event, which turned out to be a Coachella festival of air balls, missed shots and footwork that would make a sloth look like Usain Bolt, was sparked by Twitter trash-talk that started after Cruz posted a picture of himself supporting the Houston Rockets over the Golden State Warriors during Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals. Kimmel joked that Cruz resembled a blobfish, a not particularly attractive creature that dwells at the bottom of the ocean.

Cruz responded with the idea of a b-ball challenge. Kimmel took him up on it and the two agreed the proceeds from their $5,000 wager would be donated to two local charities, the non-profit Generation One and Texas Children’s Hospital. Parts of the game will be televised on Kimmel’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” show Monday at 10:35 p.m.

The crowd in the 8,100-capacity venue — though half of the seats were blocked off because it was not a full-court game — was enthusiastic, even if the level of play often was not. While most of the fans seemed to be on Kimmel’s side in terms of sport and politics — there were enough T-shirts proclaiming support for Democratic senatorial candidate (and Cruz political opponent) Beto O’Rourke to make it seem like a Beto convention. But Cruz, wearing a Houston Strong shirt, had a lot of support in the town he calls home, too.

Houston resident Randall Haynie was there in a Trump shirt and MAGA hat. “These events don't usually happen when a senator or someone calls out someone. That person [usually] backs down,” he said before the game. “So you can see why there are so many people are here. Another reason is to see my senator … I hope Cruz wins.”

On the other side of the fence was Houstonian Rodrigo Ortiz. “We came to support Jimmy Kimmel in a basketball game against versus Ted Cruz because we really believe that everything that Ted Cruz is supporting is against everything that we support and think this country should be supporting,” he said. “I would say that most of the people watching Jimmy Kimmel show are people that would not support the things that Cruz believes.”

Margaret Junious drove from Beaumont to show her love for Kimmel. “I like his political views,” she said. “I’m just a fan, an all-around fan.”

The nearly two-hour contest — which featured the voice of Houston Rockets announcer Matt Thomas — would have gone on even longer if the rules hadn’t been changed mid-game. Originally, the winner would be the first to reach 15 points (each basket was worth one point) and win by two. As the game looked like it might go on as long as a rave in an abandoned warehouse, it was announced that the winner would be the first to reach 11 with a two-point lead, much to the joy of anyone wanting to get home before sunrise. (As it was, lots of people were streaming out of there early.)

GAME STAKES: Cruz-Kimmel basketball challenge another battle in the culture war

If the Blobfish was an epic fail as an athletic competition — though it did improve near the end when both Cruz and Kimmel got last-minute jolts of energy — it wasn’t much better as political theater. While Kimmel stopped play a couple of times to try to engage Cruz in a discussions about detentions and family separations along the southern border as well as health coverage of those with pre-existing conditions, Cruz’s responses were drowned out by crowd noise with many shouting “play ball!” That prompted Kimmel to yell, “That’s as close as we’re going to get to a town hall,” a probable reference to the charge that Cruz doesn’t hold enough of them.

Even though Kimmel lost, he may still keep clowning Cruz on social media. “Well, I don't think that has anything with who wins or loses the game,” Kimmel said. “I take the shots as they come.”

Cruz was not available for pre-game interviews (though he did tweet out a photo of himself with star Duke player Grayson Allen Saturday afternoon), it’s safe to say, for one night at least, he got the last laugh.

Probably everyone, including the players, agrees that the big loser of the night was basketball itself. Summed up Kimmel near the end of the match, “We apologize to the game of basketball.”

Some people might want Donald Trump‘s Hollywood Walk of Fame star scrubbed entirely — but others want more of the same … and made it happen.

Tons of fake Donald Trump stars popped up all over Hollywood Blvd. Thursday up and down the Walk of Fame. It’s unclear whether these are stickers or what … but they’ve flooded the boulevard, flanking A-listers’ like Rob Reiner.

Considering the wave of violent reactions Trump’s star has ignited, we’ll view this a much-needed lighthearted effort. No word yet on who the latest “vandal” might be … but there are endless possibilities taking into account the myriad of stunts pulled on the street.

Ralph Northam has a ‘Reconciliation Tour’ planned where he travels around the state and tells black people he’s sorry for dressing up like Michael Jackson or something.

I don’t really get it.

Anyway – students at a historically black college had made it clear they DON’T WANT HIM THERE.

Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam was asked to cancel an appearance at a historically black college as part of his “reconciliation tour” after the university’s student government asked him to stay away in a Monday letter.

Northam was set to appear at an event, “Faith, Identity and Social Justice” at Virginia Union University (VUU) Thursday, where the Richmond 34 would be commemorated. The Richmond 34 was a group of VUU students who were arrested for protesting segregated lunch counters at a department store in 1960.

Question. I recently wrote about Hollywood leftist sweethearts who have all done blackface themselves. If darling-of-the-left Jimmy Kimmel were to want to visit this school, would they turn HIM down, too? Because he’s done blackface WAAYYYY more recently than Ralph Northam has… and no one seems to care one bit.

Anyway… Northam responded by saying he will “abide by the students’ wishes.”

The guy’s kind of a sad sack, sooo yeah. This is expected.
