Poor Michelle Obama – the first lady just couldn’t catch a break as she took to Twitter to answer questions about keeping kids healthy. Her snoozefest question and answer session about healthy eating and daily exercise was overrun with Twitter users bent on asking more pressing questions about foreign policy and the September 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya.
[VIDEO] Funny “Organizing for Access” infomercial slams White House for close relationship with president’s former political action commmitte
The White House has recently been accused of selling access to the president, via President Obama’s political action committee-turned-non-profit, Organizing for Action. That’s all American Crossroads needed to create a video poking fun at the administration in the hilarious style of a late-night infomercial titled, “Organizing for Access.”
There’s no doubt the sexually graphic novel “Fifty Shades of Grey” has permeated all areas of pop culture – the popular “mommy porn” book is a New York Times best seller and the fastest-selling paper back of all time. But the erotic and controversial page-turner isn’t just being sold in stores or made into a movie. It’s being marketed to teen girls.
Icing, a well-known mall jewelry that attracts teen girls, is proudly advertising their new “Fifty Shades of Grey” collection – complete with handcuff earrings and similar bondage-style sexualized jewelry.
Justin Bieber delivers funny, factually-incorrect Black History Month monologue on Saturday Night Live
Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber was last week’s host and musical guest on NBC’s Saturday Night Live and though he may be known for being a multi-platinum recording artist, his comedic timing was right on cue. His opening monologue, a tribute to Valentine’s Day and Black History Month was as equally funny as it was inaccurate.
“Girl you driving me crazy but did you also know that Denzel Washington invented the peanut?” Bieber said to one female audience member as he offered her a rose. He perused the audience looking for a “special girl” to help him celebrate that “special time of year, that romantic time of year… Black History Month,” he said.
In a controversial tweet meant to be a joke, Republican Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has compared Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to a monkey.
“So Ahmadinejad wants to be first Iranian in space – wasn’t he just there last week? ‘Iran launches monkey into space’ news.yahoo.com/iran-launches-…” the tweet read, immediately causing quite a stir online.
The Senator immediately followed up with a tweet asking people to “… lighten up, folks, can’t everyone take a joke?” But at that point, it was too late.
Another day, another celebrity wades flippantly into controversial politics. The tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting brought out fierce opinions about gun control, but one Hollywood actor went so far as to say that certain gun owners’ lives weren’t “worth protecting.”
On Saturday, comedian Jim Carrey tweeted, “Any1 [sic] who would run out to buy an assault rifle after the Newtown massacre has very little left in their body or soul worth protecting. ;^\.” The “Ace Ventura” star’s comment comes almost two months after the horrific event in which a rogue gunman murdered twenty children and six adults in an elementary school in Newtown, CT.
In the most predictable of press conferences, liberal bastion of the Senate Senator Diane Feinstein (D-California) introduced legislation today to ban “military-style assault weapons” and “high capacity magazines.” Surrounded by law enforcement officials, members of the clergy and victims of gun violence, Feinstein stood firm in issuing an assault weapons ban in order to “help end mass shootings.”
“We should be outraged by how easy it is for perpetrators of these horrific crimes to obtain powerful military-style weapons,” Feinstein said in the Dirksen Senate office building accompanied by large poster boards sporting silhouettes of these military-style weapons.
