    Conservative commentator Mark Levin lashed out against the Democrats in the aftermath of special counsel Robert Mueller submitting his final report to the Justice Department. During his Fox News show Sunday, the nationally syndicated radio host blamed former President Barack Obama's government for seeding a Russian collusion frenzy and called for an investigation into their role in peddling the narrative. "The Democratic Party is not a pro-America party. They act like a third-world party because they want to destroy this presidency," Levin said. "It is time to focus on the Democrats in the House. It is time to focus on...

    New York State (New York City in particular) can be a really expensive place to live. That’s why it’s particularly tough for many people to make ends meet if they’re earning minimum wage… or even less. That generally only applies to tipped employees like restaurant wait staff and bartenders. But never fear, ladies and gentlemen. There are powerful politicians and famous Hollywood stars out there fighting on your behalf. One of them from the latter category is actress and comedian Amy Schumer. She has connections to powerful politicians (like her Uncle Chuck) and the media alike, and she’s been...

    For more than a year, a group of Hollywood actresses waving the banner of the Time’s Up movement have been pressing Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to apply New York’s minimum wage to workers who earn tips, arguing that it would make waitresses less vulnerable to sexual harassment. Among the celebrities weighing in are Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Williams, Amy Poehler and Amy Schumer. Not surprisingly, the restaurant industry is pushing back, saying the proposed change would spell doom for many businesses. But it has also created an unexpected divide: Waitresses and other servers are resisting the proposal, saying they can...

    Several Hollywood celebrities are pushing New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to eliminate the wage difference between hourly employees and tipped workers like waitresses and bartenders. Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Williams, Amy Poehler and Amy Schumer are among the more prominent actresses pushing the proposal. But, not suprisingly the waitresses have written a letter to the celebrities, telling them "no thanks." New York Times: Waitresses and other servers are resisting the proposal, saying they can make more money from tips and do not need celebrities to help protect them from harassment. Harassment is a real concern, they say, but so...

    Comedian Amy Schumer said her starring role in “I Feel Pretty” should have gone to a minority actress with a “harder” life story. [snip] “It’s not about an ugly, vile troll getting beautiful,” the actress said in response to critics of the movie’s premise. “It’s about a girl who really struggles with self-esteem, which is something we can all relate to. So, it just made me excited for people to see the movie. But also, I think it is fair to say that, you know, that it’s a lot harder for other people … and I recognize that I am...

    Amy Schumer’s highly anticipated stand-up special for Netflix is getting overwhelmingly negative reviews from users who are tuning in and rating it. “Amy Schumer: The Leather Special” hit Netflix last week, and as the streaming service’s subscribers are starting to watching it, less-than-stellar reviews have been pouring in. “I made it 10 minutes into this and shut it off,” one viewer review read. The user gave the special one-star out of five. Another viewer added, “SO BAD!! I did stay and watch the whole show in hopes that it would get better, and it didn’t.” Yet another one-star user review...

    Amy Schumer‘s new movie Trainwreck draws heavily from her own life, but there’s one embarrassing incident that didn’t make it to the big screen: her arrest for grand larceny shoplifting! Schumer has previously admitted that she had sticky fingers well into her adult years. “It was just all from, like, department stores,” she told Rolling Stone last year. “I guess the impressive part was that I would return it for cash, and the most that I’d ever made was probably around $1,000. But I did it a lot.” When she was 21, however, her bad habit caught up to her,...

    Amy Schumer said she was just joking when she said she’d leave the country if Donald Trump was elected president. Schumer, a distant cousin of Senator Chuck Schumer, told BBC Newsnight in September she would move to Spain should Trump win. “My act will change because I will need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain or somewhere,” she said. “It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s too crazy.” However, Wednesday morning she took to Instagram to inform fans she was staying in America. Schumer noted she had also said she would move to London....

    TAMPA - About 200 people walked out of Amy Schumer's comedy show at the Amalie Arena in Tampa Sunday when she mocked Donald Trump as, among other things, an "orange, sexual-assaulting, fake- college-starting monster." (Read Jay Cridlin's review of the show). Loud booing from a vocal, but small minority of the arena crowd started about halfway through the show, when Schumer's raunchy humor veered into more topical matters, including gun control and the presidential election. She has been a vocal advocate for stricter gun laws since a man opened fire during a showing of her movie Train Wreck last year,...

    Amy Schumer’s book, “The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo” — despite being No. 1 on the best-seller list for two weeks — is a disappointment, sources say. Although it sold 36,000 hardcover copies in its first week, Simon & Schuster paid $9 million for the funny memoir. “The publishers are hugely disappointed. They are going to lose a ton of money,” an industry insider told the New York Post.
