    New York Times columnist Frank Bruni moderates a 'Times Talks' discussion between legendary feminist Camille Paglia and 'Watch What Happens Live' host Andy Cohen about life in the Trump era. Paglia says Bruni's newspaper and the Democratic Party still have "soul searching" left to do about why they called 2016 wrong. "It is incumbent upon the defeated party to pull itself together, or else we're going to get the reelection of the present administration," she said. "I didn't take him seriously at all," she said about the early days of the Trump campaign. "And then, shortly after the very first...

    For all the roiling anger and energy at the grass roots, the party still fell short in Georgia and Kansas. And Democratic prospects in upcoming elections aren't promising. As it became clear late Tuesday evening that Jon Ossoff would fall just short of the 50-percent mark in the first round of voting in a suburban Atlanta special election, Democrats back in Washington started leafing through their calendars and asking: When does the winning start? Ossoff’s 'moral victory' — capturing 48 percent of the vote in a conservative-oriented district — was welcome, but after two successive close-but-no-cigar finishes in House special...

    Shia LaBeouf got kicked out of an L.A. bowling alley Wednesday night after freaking out on a bartender, calling him a "f***ing racist." Shia was at Pinz in Studio City and according to one eyewitness, he was there for 3 hours pounding back beers. We're told Shia got rowdy in Jerry's Deli, which is connected to Pinz, and got into a verbal altercation when the staff told him to leave. We've obtained additional video that shows Shia was going off about a bartender refusing to serve him french fries. French fries.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) implied during a Wednesday press conference that President Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, has been "complicit" in her father's actions, which the lawmaker described as "not acting in the interest of the American people." Pelosi's remarks came after she was asked about comments Ivanka Trump made during an interview on "CBS This Morning." CBS host Gayle King had asked Trump to address those who say she is "complicit" in her father's White House. "In an interview today, Ivanka Trump said, ‘I don't know what it means to be complicit' and that ‘not to...
  • Here’s how much Gov. Jerry Brown wants to raise the gas tax to fix crumbling roads (GAG!)

    California’s governor and legislative leaders on Wednesday proposed raising $52 billion to fix the state’s roads through a big gasoline tax increase, higher car registration fees and a charge on emission-free vehicles. The 10-year plan would boost gasoline excise taxes for the first time in more than two decades, raising them 12 cents per gallon — a 43 percent increase. The tax would rise automatically with inflation. For the first time, owners of zero emission vehicles would pay a $100 annual fee because they use public roads but don’t pay gasoline taxes that fund highway maintenance. The plan also includes...

    Dear Donald, We’ve known each other a long time, so I think I can be blunt. You know how you said at campaign rallies that you did not like being identified as a politician? Don’t worry. No one will ever mistake you for a politician. After this past week, they won’t even mistake you for a top-notch negotiator. I was born here. The first image in my memory bank is the Capitol, all lit up at night. And my primary observation about Washington is this: Unless you’re careful, you end up turning into what you started out scorning. And you,...

    She recently attributed her weight loss to Donald Trump's presidency - citing 'soul-crushing pain and devastation and hopelessness' in helping her slim down. And Lena Dunham proved the Trump diet is working a treat as she showcased her incredibly slimline new frame at the opening of mentor Tracy Anderson's studio in New York on Wednesday. The Girls star, 30, looked thrilled to be flaunting her firmer form as she hammed it up with aplomb on the red carpet, at one point showing off her mobile phone after receiving a video call from fellow Anderson disciple Gwyneth Paltrow.

    It’s obvious the financial interests are pouring in money to the R.A.T groups right now in the fight over ObamaCare Repeal and/or Replace. Boy howdy are they all fibbing as they fling their poo at each other. Forget the Democrats in this discussion. For the sake of this analysis we only look at the right side of the UniParty; the Republican side.

    Democrats continue to attack Attorney General Jeff Sessions for a pair of meetings he had with the Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in 2016 while he was a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and an occasional surrogate for the Trump campaign. However, a new report from Fox News is throwing cold water on the idea that the meetings were part of some nefarious plot between the Trump campaign and Russia. Over at FoxNews.com, Hans Von Spakovsky reports that least one of the meetings was actually arranged, in part, by the Obama administration. The first [meeting] came at a conference...

    Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) says that one of his staffers was knocked unconscious during a protest at his Huntington Beach, Calif., office on Tuesday. In a statement, Rohrabacher’s office said that the protesters were part of a nationwide movement calling themselves Indivisible, which has vowed to resist President Donald Trump’s agenda by trying to occupy Republican congressional offices. Kathleen Staunton, 71, who has managed Rohrabacher's office since his first term in 1989, apparently attempted to leave through the front door to go to the bathroom, when “a protester yanked the door open, causing her to fall and hit her head."...

    A rare bacterial disease linked to rats — and normally only seen in animals — has killed one person in the Bronx and left two others fighting for their lives, city officials reported Tuesday. The three cases of leptospirosis were identified within a one-block radius of the Concourse section of the borough over the past two months, the Health Department said. “Human leptospirosis cases are very rare in New York City,” explained Demetre Daskalakis, acting deputy commissioner of the Health Department. “This is the first time a cluster of cases has been identified,” he said. “All three cases had severe...

Matt Drudge, the proprietor of The Drudge Report, the conservative website which played a leading role in the rise of the new president, raised eyebrows with this note: “Republican Party should be sued for fraud. No discussion of tax cuts now. Just lots of crazy. Back to basics, guys!”

    WASHINGTON — Now, stacked on the Trump tower of petrifying things we have to worry about — war with Iran, war with China, war with Mexico, war with Islam, war with koala bears — there is yet another looming disaster. The East Wing is perilously behind in planning for the Easter Egg Roll. Is the White House dropping the ball — or rather, the ovoid? As our omnipresent new president hijacked our reality, the first lady vanished, sparking headlines for nary a glimpse in D.C. since the inaugural. Just as there is a gush of leaks from the resistance in...
