    Alec Baldwin’s new talk show was abruptly “bumped” from its Sunday night schedule after dismal ratings this week; dropping to Saturday nights in December as ABC struggles to stem the flow of viewers. The Sunday night slot will be filled with repeat episodes of ‘Shark Tank.’ Baldwin made national headlines just days ago when he was arrested in New York City after allegedly assaulting another person.

    Celebrities that are sick of Donald Trump and the GOP have spent the few weeks leading up to today’s midterms crying about the “raving lunatic” President as they stoked their liberal fans to get to the polls to halt the GOP’s “nascent fascism.” Comedian Rosie O’Donnell even called for a coup: “I want to send the military to the White House to get him.” Singer/actress Barbra Streisand confessed to Trump keeping her awake at nights and actress/activist Jane Fonda saw the “parallels” to the Nazis: “If you’ve read anything about the rise of the Third Reich and Adolf Hitler, you...

  • ANOTHER POTENTIAL GOP HOUSE PICKUP

    The Democrats might capture the House this year, but every GOP pickup makes that prospect less likely. Here in Minnesota, we have two very strong pickup opportunities, open seats in the 1st and 8th Congressional districts, both of which went strongly for President Trump in 2016. I am pretty confident that the Republican candidates, Jim Hagedorn and Pete Stauber, will win those races. Until now, hardly anyone has taken seriously the chance that Republican David Hughes can upset longtime Congressman Collin Peterson in Minnesota’s 7th. But, in a stunning move, Real Clear Politics now rates the contest a tossup. Peterson...

    Crenshaw responded to Davidson's comments on Twitter Sunday morning. "Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes," he wrote. Davidson's segment, which he introduced as a look at "gross" candidates during this election, focused primarily on Republicans.

    Pete Davidson is in hot water for some comments he made on “Saturday Night Live” about Dan Crenshaw, a Texas Republican running for Congress who lost an eye while serving in the U.S. military. On Saturday’s episode of the sketch series, Davidson appeared on the “Weekend Update” segment, the 24-year-old comedian gave his “first impressions” of some candidates ahead of Tuesday’s midterm elections. He giggled as an image of former Navy SEAL Crenshaw, who wears an eye-patch on his right eye after being injured by an I.E.D. in Afghanistan, flashed across the screen. “You may be surprised to hear he’s...

    Further proving the late-night comedy show is garbage entertainment for garbage people, Saturday Night Live "comedian" Pete Davidson sparked controversy after he made an ugly joke targeting GOP congressional candidate and former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw. The punchline? Crenshaw wears an eye-patch due to losing his right eye during an IED blast while serving in Afghanistan. That's funny stuff, apparently, to the liberals writing the jokes for SNL. Davidson was participating in a segment called  "The Weekly Rundown" where SNL participants give what is supposed humorous commentary on current events. Davidson remarked he noticed there was an unusual rash of "gross"...

    Since the Vietnam War, liberals have been known for their great disdain for America’s service members, despite their efforts to hide it. During NBC’s latest edition of Saturday Night Live, that disdain poked its ugly head out in the form of supposed comedian Pete Davidson mocking Republican congressional candidate and former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw about the eye he lost to an IED blast while serving in Afghanistan, “or whatever” according to the funny man. The vile attack came during the SNL’s faux news segment “Weekend Update” where Davidson was mocking multiple Republican politicians for their looks. The comedian stated...

    Donald Trump Jr. is torching Alec Baldwin after the actor was arrested following an alleged parking spot dispute on Friday, calling the “Saturday Night Live” performer a “piece of garbage.” President Trump's eldest son weighed in shortly after news of Baldwin’s arrest broke. The actor was taken into custody after allegedly punching a man following a dispute in the West Village, the New York Police Department said. "Is anyone shocked at this piece of garbage anymore?" Trump Jr. tweeted, sharing a link to a news report on Baldwin's arrest. "He’s a lib so he gets chance after chance to be...

    A Republican candidate for the Minnesota House who says he suffered a concussion after being attacked by a man at a St. George Township restaurant last week is pointing the finger at several high-profile Democrats for “driving this behavior.” Shane Mekeland told the Star Tribune that he was “blindsided” Friday night by a man at a restaurant he wouldn’t identify. “While I had never met my assailant, the words he yelled at me before he attacked lead me to believe his actions were politically motivated,” Mr. Mekeland, who is running for the House in District 15B, wrote in a Facebook...

    After entertaining a re-election campaign, Senator Bob Corker confirmed in February that he will retire at the end of his term. The Tennessee Republican will leave after 12 years in office and, if nothing changes, with $6.2 million in unspent campaign funds — the most of any outgoing member of Congress. Corker’s office did not respond to inquiries after two weeks about what will happen to leftover money at the end of the senator’s term. Neither did the offices of Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Ed Royce (R-Calif.), Patrick Meehan (R-Pa.), Al Franken (D-Minn.) or Pat Tiberi (R-Ohio) — who have a...

    This year’s high-stakes midterm elections are fast approaching, and much ink has been spilled about a surge in women candidates running for office. Unfortunately, most of the hype has focused on only one type of woman: anti-Trump, pro-abortion, and angry about it. What about the millions of women and men who are eager to see more protections for unborn children and their mothers – who revere the Constitution and want more fair, impartial judges like Justice Kavanaugh appointed? Who is running to represent folks who not only decline the pink hats and handmaid outfits, but are happy about the direction...

    Hillary Clinton has defended her husband, Bill Clinton, over his affair with Monica Lewinsky by directly contradicting Lewinsky's characterization of what happened. In 1995, when Lewinsky was a 22-year-old White House intern, she had multiple sexual encounters with the then-president, which he later lied under oath about. After the affair became public, Lewinsky was targeted by pundits belonging to both parties and reported feeling bullied to the point of feeling suicidal. Back in March, a few months into the #MeToo movement of women coming forward with allegations of sexual misconduct, mostly against powerful men, Lewinsky wrote that she had been...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Actor Alec Baldwin followed up his latest parody portrayal of President Donald Trump with a serious call Sunday night for voters to use the Nov. 6 midterm elections to peacefully "overthrow" the government. After reprising his role as Trump on "Saturday Night Live," Baldwin flew to New Hampshire, where he was the keynote speaker at the New Hampshire Democratic Party's annual fall fundraising dinner. "The way we implement change in America is through elections. We change governments here at home in an orderly and formal way," he said. "In that orderly and formal way and lawful way,...
