    Actor and performance artist Shia LaBeouf is back with his latest art installation — a four-year-long live-stream set up at a New York City museum at which Americans concerned by Donald Trump’s presidency can film themselves speaking out in protest. The 30-year-old Transformers star unveiled his latest project Friday morning — hours before Trump swore the oath of office to become America’s 45th President — at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The installation consists of a camera set up on a wall, with the phrase “He Will Not Divide Us” scrawled on...

    Actress Kristen Stewart is really excited about her next project and she swears it’s “going to kick ass.” But given the topic matter, it’s bound to be a flop. While promoting her new movie Come Swim at the Sundance film festival, the Twilight star, on Friday, told The Hollywood Reporter: “My next thing is going to kick ass. It’s about gun control.” Before she starts shooting this anti-gun flick, Stewart might want to ask her fellow thespian Jessica Chastain about well her gun control movie Miss Sloane did. According to The Washington Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski, that anti-gun screed had...

    Donald Trump’s “running war” on the media is continuing into his presidency, with statements over the weekend calling into question the extent to which information from the White House can be trusted. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Monday will hold his first daily press briefing at which he could face questions about a statement Saturday night that included demonstrably false assertions about the crowd size at Friday’s inauguration and a promise by the new administration that “we’re going to hold the press accountable.” Some Trump supporters will no doubt cheer the continued antagonism toward the media that was...

"One of the things I think this administration hasn’t figured out yet is that there’s only one television network that is seen in Beijing, Moscow, Seoul, Tokyo, Pyongyang, Baghdad, Tehran and Damascus — and that’s CNN," Zucker said. "The perception of Donald Trump in capitals around the world is shaped, in many ways, by CNN. Continuing to have an adversarial relationship with that network is a mistake."

The exclusive video shows an animal trainer forcing a terrified German shepherd dog into a pool of raging water, while the animal tries desperately to escape. It’s a chilling behind-the-scenes look at the filmmakers’ attempt to recreate a scene from the book, in which a police K-9 named Ellie rescues someone from a rushing river.

    This week we saw a few perfect examples of why liberal coastal elites are so resentful of middle America: It’s because the supposed rubes and rednecks aren’t more resentful of the elites — or, more specifically, the elites’ “success.” They don’t aspire to be like their self-appointed betters. Some Americans just don’t need much; they don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting to have a 1,500-square-foot house, watch football and go to church on Sunday. They don’t want to leave their hometowns to come to Silicon Valley or Washington, DC, or Manhattan. They place great value on community and living...

[…] “Take the challenge of climate change,” Obama said. “In just eight years, we’ve halved our dependence on foreign oil; we’ve doubled our renewable energy; we’ve led the world to an agreement that has the promise to save this planet....

Bill decides enough is enough, and he is going to shoot up the town. As a youngster, the creators of the movie have set...
