Fearing Defeat, Hillary Vanishing From Nevada Night Of Caucus

2/19/2016 10:11am EST
Hillary Clinton
Sensing the tide — and polling data — shifting toward Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton plans to be in Texas on Saturday, the night of the Nevada caucus.

“This is a huge story,” MSBNC “Morning Joe” panelist Mike Barnacle said Thursday, referring to news reports that Clinton plans to depart Nevada for Houston Thursday evening for a fundraiser.

"It looks like they're pulling up stakes the night of the caucus, something that always suggests things are not going your way,” host Joe Scarborough said.

Clinton once held a commanding lead in Nevada, but recent polls show she and Sanders locked i...

Donald Trump Versus The Pope

Pope Francis Says Donald Trump Is 'Not Christian', Trump Calls C
Just when you thought Donald Trump's campaign for President couldn't get any more bizarre, he goes and gets into a spat with the Pope.

In Trump's defense, this is one fight he didn't start. Reuters reported that Pope Francis attacked Trump's views on U.S. immigration as "not Christian" on Thursday, which led to the billionaire businessman responding by saying it was "disgraceful" for the Pope to question his faith.

The Pope's comments came as part of a question and answer session with reporters on his flight home following a visit to Mexico, according to CNN. Trump, who is leading nationa...

Donald Trump Entertains Conspiracy Theory That Supreme Court Jus
Another day, another controversy for The Donald.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump appeared to entertain conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia during a radio interview on Tuesday.

While appearing on Michael Savage's program, Trump was asked by the host about the theory that Scalia was killed, according to The Hill.

“Donald, I need to come back to the topic we’ve all been screaming about here, which is Scalia, was he murdered?” Savage asked Trump. “I know it’s pretty brutal to say that, and I’m not wanting to drag you into this, bu...

Johnny Depp Plays Donald Trump In Latest 'Funny Or Die' Spoof
Donald Trump might be America's most popular target for humor right now, so it's not surprising that website Funny or Die has picked the Republican presidential candidate as the subject of their latest fake movie trailer.

Johnny Depp plays Trump in a mock preview for Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal: The Movie, which also features appearances from Alfred Molina (Angie Tribeca), Jack McBrayer (30 Rock), Stephen Merchant (Hello Ladies), Patton Oswalt, and...Alf?

Done in the cheesy style of every terrible movie ever, The Art of the Deal: The Movie is amusingly over the top. We've included ...

Donald Trump Says Iowa Caucus Election Was Rigged

Donald Trump
Donald Trump wants a re-vote in the Iowa Caucus election because he's accusing Ted Cruz of stealing it. On Monday, Trump was relatively gracious in conceding the caucus results by acknowledging he came in second to Cruz.

Trump congratulated Cruz Monday night then tweeted a message Wednesday calling Cruz a fraud. He removed the tweet soon after posting it, Politico reports.

Donald Trump's tweet read: "Ted Cruz didn't win Iowa, he illegally stole it. That is why all of the polls were so wrong any [sic] why he got more votes than anticipated. Bad!"

Donald Trump Isn't Very Likable

Donald Trump: Gallup Poll Confirms Trump Is Most Unlikable Candi
Donald Trump isn't very likable according to a new Gallup Poll. According to UPI, the GOP hopeful has the "highest unfavorable ratings" amongst those who participated in the poll.

"Three out of five Americans -- or 60 percent -- have an unfavorable view of Trump in the latest two-week average of all of the candidates running in the 2016 presidential race. The percentage is the highest of all the candidates and the highest since Gallup began asking the question in 1992."

Although Trump has proven himself to be very outspoken -- and far less P.C. than what the people of the U.S. are use...

Will Trump Show Up At Fox News Debate? Vets Fundraiser Called 'P
Donald Trump claims that he will not take part in the Fox News Republican presidential primary debate on Thursday night. Instead, he has decided to host a fundraising event in Iowa for the Veterans and Wounded Warriors because he's ticked off at Fox.

Trump invited all networks other than Fox to air his event, but there is no confirmation that anyone will be airing the special that is scheduled to take place at Drake University in Iowa at 9 p.m. ET.

It was the childishly written & taunting PR statement by Fox that made me not do the debate, more so than lightweight reporter, @megynkelly...

Donald Trump Says Tom Brady's Support Is Helping him

Donald Trump
Tom Brady's support is helping Donald Trump's poll numbers in New England, according to the Donald.

Trump went on Iowa’s KXEL’s On Press Row and explained his relationship with Brady.

“I’m friend of Tom Brady, very good friend and he was so nice to me,” Trump said on Iowa’s KXEL’s On Press Row this week. “‘Cause he said, you saw what he said a couple weeks ago. He called, he said Trump is the greatest winner, when you get that, and then all of sudden in Massachusetts, I saw that cause Tom is New England, Massachusetts, and all of sudden in Massachusetts we got poll numbers that were ...

'Memba Paula Jones, The Woman Who Sued Bill Clinton? She's Back!

Paula Jones Hillary Clinton
Although Bernie Sanders vowed not to use Hillary Clinton's husband's sexual harassment and infidelity controversies as political fodder, Donald Trump has other plans and may have help from an unlikely source: Paula Jones.

You may recall Paula Jones was the woman who was the driving force behind President Bill Clinton's impeachment hearings. Her civil case against Clinton eventually led to the discovery of an affair with White House intern, Monica Lewinsky, according to the National Enquirer.

Jones, 49, was an Arkansas State employee in May of 1991 when a member of Clinton's security det...

Apparently, Donald Trump Tried Putting The Moves On Megyn Kelly

Megyn Kelly Alleges Donald Trump Attempted To 'Woo' Her With 'Cr
Megyn Kelly is pulling out the big guns. The newly anointed face of Fox News has some dirt on Donald Trump. Kelly claims that before The Donald announced his presidential run, he tried to woo her -- with a string of creepy unsolicited contacts.

The public feuding between Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump set the tone for the Republican debate climate and rules of playing nice going forward. The jousting between the Fox News anchor and former Apprentice reality TV star was entertaining and sublime at times -- lacking fervor in others.

Kelly sat down with Vanity Fair recently for an interview....

Donald Trump
Donald Trump has the solution to fixing the New York Jets. What is it, you ask? Well, you guessed it, it's him.

On Monday, the Donald took to Twitter to blame fellow Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush for the Jets missing the playoffs.

Woody Johnson, owner of the NYJets, is @JebBush’s finance chairman. If Woody would’ve been w/me, he would’ve been in the playoffs, at least!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 4, 2016

The Jets missed the playoffs on Sunday, losing 22-17 to former coach Rex Ryan's Buffalo Bills.

The team hasn't made the playoffs in five seasons.

Ivanka Trump And Chelsea Clinton 'Bad Blood?' No, But 'Friendshi
They were close friends before their parents decided to run for the White House. Today, Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton reportedly have a tense relationship. Both pregnant -- and potential future First Daughters -- women don't have bad blood and are not feuding, but things are "on hold" for the moment.

New York Daily News' Confidential sources claim Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump have put distance between one another. At one point, Chelsea and Ivanka had such a close friendship; they exchanged gifts for their newborn babies and often communicated by text message.

Ever Wonder What Donald Trump Looks Like Shedding Tears?

12/31/2015 10:30am EST
Barack Obama
At the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors, President Barack Obama was brought to tears by Aretha Franklin's rendition of "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" in tribute to singer-songwriter, Carole King (video below). Ponder this for a moment: Would Donald Trump have cried over the Queen of Soul's moving song?

According to E! News, the ceremony, which aired on Tuesday, took place earlier this month. The way Franklin performed the song; you'd think she was one of the recipients that included King, George Lucas, Eddie Murphy, Cicely Tyson, and others.

The rendition evoked raw emotion from th...

Donald Trump Admits He's Not A 'Star Wars' Fan, Did His Poll Numbers Just Drop?

Donald Trump Tells Jimmy Kimmel He's Not A 'Star Wars' Fan, Will
Heading out to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens this weekend? Don't expect Donald Trump to be there. The Republican presidential candidate made a shocking revelation on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night — he's not a big fan of the Star Wars franchise.

Will Trump see a drop in his "fantastic" poll numbers now that he's disappointed millions of potential voters who just happen to be Star Wars fans? If he starts to lose ground as a frontrunner in the 2016 Presidential election, he may blame it on the "The Force" not being with him.

Trump quickly realized he didn't win any points for dissi...

Wait! Did Pats QB Tom Brady Say He Supports Trump's Ban On Muslims?

Tom Brady Finally Speaks Out About Trump's Muslim Ban And Proves
Patriots QB Tom Brady has been trying to dodge questions about his friend Donald Trump's vow to ban Muslims from entering the U.S., but finally broke his silence just hours before Tuesday night's Presidential debate.

During an interview on WEEI's Dennis & Callahan show on Tuesday, Brady proved that he's a bit of a politician himself. When asked point blank what he thinks about Trump's proposed ban, Tom said that he supports all of his friends "in everything they do."

Although he didn't say "yes," it's hard not to read into his response. If Brady supports everything his friends do, then it...

Bald Eagle Attacks Donald Trump: Is There A Hidden Message Here?

Donald Trump Bald Eagle Attack
Well, whaddya know; Donald Trump is getting a taste of his own medicine: from a bird that perhaps, foreshadowed what America already knew. A video of Trump being attacked by a bald eagle named -- wait for it -- Uncle Sam surfaced and many think it's proper, given the outrage created by his anti-Muslim rhetoric.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, footage of an eagle attacking Donald Trump months ago is priceless. BuzzFeed published a whimsical piece that suggested that not even America's mascot thinks Trump is fit to become the next President of the United States.

Harrison Ford Doesn't Like Trump

Harrison Ford Slams Donald Trump After Presidential Candidate Pr
Donald Trump may be fan of Harrison Ford, but it's not the other way around. Last week the presidential candidate told the New York Times he liked films that featured heroic presidents, specifically "Air Force One."

Ford starred in the 1997 film, which centered on POTUS fighting off a group of Russian terrorists after hijacking the presidential plane. One of the movie's famous lines is Ford, as U.S. President James Marshall, saying, "Get off my plane."

Trump said of the flick, "My favorite was Harrison Ford on the plane," adding, "I love Harrison Ford -- and not just because he rents my p...

Donald Trump Claims Patriots QB Tom Brady Is Helping Him Get Votes

Patriots Tom Brady Helping Donald Trump Get Votes, Says Trump Is
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady thinks Donald Trump is "the greatest" — and those are Trump's words, not Brady's.

During an interview with The Washington Post, the Republican presidential candidate boasted that he is at "48 percent" in the state of Massachusetts and credits Tom Brady for the support he's getting from voters in the Bay State.

"My whole life is about winning," Trump tells the Post. "In Massachusetts, I’m at 48 percent. You know why? Tom Brady said 'Trump’s the greatest.' He says it to anyone who asks him."

However, according to current polls, Trump doesn't have 48 percen...

Muhammad Ali 'Knocks Out' Trump In Statement After Anti-Muslim Remarks

Muhammad Ali Jabs Back: 'The Greatest' Reportedly Responds To Tr
Retired Heavyweight boxing champion, Muhammad Ali, formerly Cassius Clay, has some tough love for presidential candidates who denounce Muslim faith. Ali issued a statement -- presumably, aimed at Donald Trump -- in the wake of controversial remarks from the GOP frontrunner for the 2016 Elections. Muhammad defended Islam and blasted Trump's talk of a Muslim ban on refugees.

According to an NBC News report, Muhammad Ali, 73, shot back at political talking heads and terrorists who use Islam to advance their personal and misguided agendas. Ali did not directly name Donald Trump, but it was ob...

Donald Trump is not happy that he wasn't named 2015 TIME Person of the Year and whined about it on Twitter when the announcement was made on Wednesday.

Even Trump's friend and former Celebrity Apprentice contestant, Piers Morgan thought the honor should go to the outspoken Republican presidential candidate, but TIME thought otherwise, putting him in third place behind the winner German Chancellor Angela Merkel and runner-up ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Not Even Trump's Ex-Wife Gets Preferential Treatment At This Restaurant

Ivana Trump
Ivana Trump is used to the finer things in life; that's for sure. But has Donald Trump's ex-wife lost her clout? Reportedly, the eccentric socialite was forced to wait for a table at a popular Miami eatery recently. Spies said Ivana was none too pleased.

According to a Page Six report, Ivana Trump, 66, got a rude awakening recently when she dined at the Miami Beach Mr. Chow in the W Hotel. Sources say Trump's ex-wife arrived early for her reservation but was told she could not be sat until every member of her party arrived.

Although it's a standard practice at the restaurant -- and at m...

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

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'

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...

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.
