Trump Refuses To Apologize After Mocking Disabled Reporter

11/27/2015 2:30am EST
Donald Trump Says He Has 'Tremendous Respect' For The Physically
Just two days after Donald Trump mocked New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, who has a physical disability, the Republican presidential candidate refuses to apologize for his actions. Instead, he claims that he was just imitating a person "groveling" and had no idea that the reporter has arthrogryposis, a joint condition that limits his arm movements.

According to NBC, Trump was at a rally in South Carolina on November 24 and attempted to defend his claim that "thousands of Muslims in New Jersey" celebrated as the World Trade Center collapsed in the September 11 attacks. He tried to ba...

Donald Trump Isn't Opposed To Putting ID Badges On America's Muslims

11/19/2015 7:54pm EST
Donald Trump Won't Rule Out Warrantless Searches, ID Badges For
Almost a week after the terror attacks in Paris, Donald Trump continues to spew ideas about his plans to crack down on radical Islamic terrorism. In addition to bombing "the h**l out of ISIS," Trump stated that he wouldn't rule out having America's Muslims wear a special ID that notes their religion if he wins 2016 presidential election.

On the same day that the House passed a bill that would require stricter checks on refugees admitted into the United States, Trump told Yahoo that he wants to crack down on Muslims who are already in the country. If that means using a database and badges t...

Larry David Heckles Donald Trump On 'SNL'

11/9/2015 9:09am EST
Donald Trump Called 'Racist' By Larry David During 'SNL' Monolog
Donald Trump, businessman and Presidential candidate acted as host, an audience member called him "racist."

That guy was Larry David, who appeared in the episode's cold open as Bernie Sanders.

While Trump was delivering his opening monologue, David shouted "You're a racist" at the millionaire.

When Trump asked why he did that, David replied, "I heard if I yelled that, they'd give me five thousand dollars."

The Latino group, Deport Racism, offered $5,000 to any audience members who heckled Trump.

The group said that it would pay $5,000 to a studio audience member at the live show who sh...

'Saturday Night Live' Season 41, Episode 4 Recap: Donald Trump & Sia

11/8/2015 2:01pm EST
Donald Trump on SNL
Donald Trump might be a bigot, or he might just be shamelessly aping the rhetoric of bigots to win over their support. Which is worse? Either way, one would assume he is a terrible fit to host a comedy show that many believe has the responsibility of holding the powerful accountable.

Thus, the petitions to reverse the Trump booking or calls to disrupt the episode had made for one of the most controversial shows in decades before it even aired.

In a way, Trump’s appearance actually turning out to be a funny episode would be troublesome, because of the fear that it could legitimize a rather...

Is This 'GMA' Co-Host Really Sitting On Donald Trump's Lap?

11/6/2015 9:28am EST
'GMA' Co-Host Lara Spencer Skewered For 'Sitting' On Donald Trum
Don't believe everything you see on the Internet.

Lara Spencer found herself in some hot stew this week when she posted an Instagram of her appearing to be sitting on GOP presidential candidate, Donald Trump's lap. You guessed accurately: a backlash followed over Lara's pic with The Donald, but the brass had a logical explanation for the photograph's depiction.

On Tuesday, Trump appeared on a taping of the show and GMA co-host Lara Spencer greeted the real estate mogul with an embrace. In the picture, Lara smiles at Donald, who returns an affectionate grin, while his arm is draped around...

It's Not The Blues Brothers: Trump Gets Secret Service Protectio
Keep an eye out for the guys in the dark suits and sunglasses when Donald Trump hosts Saturday Night Live on November 7 — it won't be the Blues Brothers. Instead, viewers may spy the Secret Service keeping tabs on "The Donald."

According to CNN, the Secret Service will now be providing protection to both Donald Trump and Ben Carson during the 2016 presidential campaign. They are the first 2016 presidential candidates to receive protection from the government agency. Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton already has a detail because she is a former first lady.

Donald Trump Would Make A Great President -- Here's Why

Trump is for real, and here are all the reasons why he'll be moving from an office in Manhattan into the Oval Office in January 2017...

Donald Trump Needs A New Campaign Song

10/12/2015 11:03pm EDT
Steven Tyler Aerosmith
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler may or may not support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, but he doesn't want "The Donald" to use his song "Dream On" during campaign events.

According to the the Associated Press, Tyler's attorneys fired off a second "cease and desist" letter to Trump's campaign committee last weekend. Trump's team reportedly ignored the first demand letter and kept playing the song at his events.

Not that Trump needs a legendary tune to get the crowds going when he speaks, but who can blame him for picking "Dream On" as his campaign song? Rolling Stone ranked...

The Trumps
Donald Trump, his wife, Melania, and their 9-year-old son Barron are sharing a rare afternoon at home (a vast apartment 66 stories above Fifth Avenue with gold walls, marble floors, ornate columns, Versailles-style furniture, enormous crystal chandeliers, frescoes on the ceiling, and panoramic views of Manhattan and beyond) as they pose together for a People photographer.

During the photo session for this week's cover story, both parents are focused on Barron, who smiles for the camera, at one point happily throwing his arms around his dad.

Alone, can Megyn Kelly destroy Donald Trump's campaign for the White House or catapult him to victory among the GOP establishment? Better still, can the fierce Fox News anchor knight him as the candidate of choice ahead of the Republican National Convention?

Donald Trump, once the presumptive nominee for his party, has lost some forward momentum. Although the real estate magnate still leads a crowded list of candidates campaigning for the 2016 Elections, his dominance has slipped.

On July 19, Trump shot to the top of leading presidential polls, besting former Republican forerunner, Jeb ...

Donald Trump Hates Double Dippers & Other Ridiculous Facts About
Love him or hate him, Donald Trump knows how to make headlines. Whether he is calling someone out on Twitter or mocking another candidate during a primary debate, Trump commands attention.

Currently a frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination, Trump has made it loud and clear that he wants everyone to take him seriously. However, with that crazy head of hair, sharp tongue and penchant for all things luxurious, it's hard not to chuckle at his antics.

Politics aside, here are a few fun facts about "The Donald" that make him an amusing pop culture icon who just happens to be run...

Check Out These Awesome 2015 Halloween Costume Ideas!

Hillary Clinton
It's that time of year once again where we all have to decide what we're going to dress up as for Halloween.

While most of the "original" costume ideas usually get all the accolades, current events and pop culture also play a big part in who's dressing up as who (or what).

There's plenty of fodder for coming up with the perfect costume this year thanks to current events like the 2016 presidential race (seriously, most of these people are scary in their own right), the Pope's visit to the U.S. and reality stars.

There's also a handful of animated movie characters that will be popular with...

What Does 'Duck Dynasty' Star Think Of Presidential Candidate Donald Trump?

9/28/2015 5:08pm EDT
Donald Trump and Willie Robertson
Donald Trump is stirring up both support and controversy with his presidential run. Now it seems that "Duck Dynasty" star Willie Robertson has stepped up to lend a bit of support, as he joined Donald briefly on stage at a recent rally. What's the scoop?

As ABC News shared, Trump was holding a rally at the state fairgrounds in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma last Friday night. Willie Robertson was in the crowd and Trump enticed him to hop up on the stage.

Though Robertson has been quite vocal in his support of Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, he did have positive things to say about Trump. The "Du...

NYC Crowd Supports Pope, Bashes Trump

Donald Trump
A crowd made up largely of Hispanic people booed Donald Trump on Thursday while waiting to see Pope Francis in New York City.

The presidential hopeful was spotted leaving the Trump Tower at about 4:30 p.m. when he gave photographers and fans a thumbs up. Although there were some cheers, there were mostly boos from the onlookers, who were eager to catch a glimpse of the Argentinian-born Pope, reported Us magazine.

Earlier in his campaign, Trump made inflammatory remarks about immigrants, particularly those from Mexico, so he is not very popular among Hispanics.

According to the New York...

Trump Continues Jabbing At Sen. Marco Rubio

Trump Slams Rubio For Youth, Hair and Uncontrollable Sweating
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio remains this week as Donald Trump’s punching bag, having replaced former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, though it’s anyone’s guess for how long.

After largely remaining silent following potshots by the notoriously aggressive Trump — he has called Rubio “overly ambitious,” “too young” and even bragged that he had better hair than the 44-year-old junior senator from Florida — Rubio is firing back.

He said Thursday that Trump goes after anyone he views as a threat.

“He had a really bad debate performance last week,” Rubio said Thursday during an interview on...

Trump Sets Crosshairs On Sen. Marco Rubio

Donald Trump - Marco Rubio
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is the latest Republican presidential candidate to land in GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s crosshairs.

Ever since Rubio began rising in the polls following his performance during last week’s Republican debate — at which he knocked Trump, saying the next president “needs to show a stronger grasp of foreign-policy,” according to the Wall Street Journal — the blustery billionaire has unleashed a verbal pummeling.

During an appearance Wednesday in Charleston, South Carolina, Trump derided the 44-year-old Sunshine State junior senator as “overly ambitious” and “too youn...

Donald Trump Bans Two Reporters From Campaign Events

donald trump
At least two reporters have had their press credentials denied by Donald Trump's campaign staffers within the last week. There is speculation that Trump ordered the move because two major news outlets have been publishing stories about his presidential campaign in the entertainment section instead of under political news.

According to CNN, Huffington Post reporter Samantha-Jo Roth and Jason Noble of the Des Moines Register were told that they would not get credentials for Trump events "from now on," but they would be able to attend as part of the general public.

MSNBC Hosts Say Hillary Clinton Tried To Smear Obama As Muslim I
MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ host Joe Scarborough called it “rich” that Hillary Clinton is denouncing Donald Trump for staying silent when a supporter at a recent rally claimed President Barack Obama is a Muslim when Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign circulated a photo of then Sen. Obama wearing a turban in Kenya.

“For Hillary Clinton to come out and criticize anybody for spreading the rumors about Barack Obama, when it all started with her and her campaign passing things around in the Democratic primary, rich,” Scarborough said. “Now, the Republicans are wrong for doing what they’re doing. T...

Why Did Trump Blast NBC On The ‘Today' Show?

Donald Trump Blasts NBC During Live 'Today' Show Interview
Donald Trump put NBC’s “Today” show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie on the defensive Monday during a live telephone interview when he called the network out for promoting a CNN poll over an NBC poll because the billionaire had a smaller margin in the CNN survey.

The exchange occurs at minute 4:36 of the 5:35-minute interview.

“The only poll you didn't put up was the NBC poll where I'm way at the top, I’m much more than double,” said Trump. “I don't understand why NBC is using a CNN poll, which was also a good poll, I'm leading by a lot.

Is Donald Trump Racist? Andy Samberg Stirs The Pot During Emmys
Donald Trump probably won't be getting Andy Samberg's vote in the 2016 presidential election. The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star, who hosted Sunday night's Emmy Awards, slammed "The Donald" in his opening monologue and it's likely Trump won't find it humorous.

Trump wasn't the only politician Samberg dissed during the Emmys, but what he said about the real estate mogul and former Celebrity Apprentice host was one of the most controversial comments he made on Sunday night.

Hillary's Trump Impersonation On 'Fallon' May Win You Over As A
Hillary Clinton is known for a lot of things, but bringing the funny is not one of them. However, the presidential hopeful's impersonation of Donald Trump during her appearance on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show just may earn your vote in the 2016 Elections -- or not.

After CNN's Republican debate, where candidates squared off for a second time -- Fox hosted the first -- Clinton got things popping with Fallon. The presumptive Democratic nominee for the White House took part in a comical sketch with the funnyman host, who pretended to be Trump.

He called Fallon a "total lightweight" and said h...

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is being lauded for her performance in Wednesday night’s GOP debate — her biting retorts to Donald Trump slamming her looks and her 2005 ouster from the global tech firm — but her moving revelation about the tragic loss of her stepdaughter to drug addiction is being heralded as a watershed moment for the presidential hopeful.

A la Trump Tower, Trump International Golf Club and Trump Entertainment Resorts, the U.S. healthcare system could become Donaldcare, a namesake nod to the billionaire real estate tycoon.

Following a speech Tuesday on the decommissioned battleship USS Iowa in California, Trump told Breitbart News that if elected, he plans to scrap Obamacare for his own version of national healthcare, though he did not expound on the details.

“We’re going to have privatization,” he said. “It’s going to end up being absolutely great.

Donald Trump Says Speaking His Mind Has Impacted His Wallet
Running for president — and indelicately voicing opinions that many find noxious —is costing Donald Trump hundreds of millions of dollars, but the blustery billionaire says it’s worth it in order to restore American greatness, the Washington Post reports.

During a campaign rally at the American Airlines Center in Dallas on Monday, Trump talked dollars and cents with the crowd of some 17,000 people.

I made $213 million, can you believe it, from a television show?” the famously braggadocio real estate baron told the crowd.

“Even for me, it’s a lot of money. That’s pretty good, right, consi...
