Brian Williams Notices Jimmy Fallon Has 'A Little Political 'Tude Coming Out' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 23rd 2011 2:58AM
Brian Williams, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Jimmy Fallon has a lot on his mind these days, and he decided to unload a bit of it on guest Brian Williams on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:35AM ET on NBC). After all, the 'NBC Nightly News' anchor is well-versed in politics and the happenings of the world. It is kind of his job.

So Jimmy decided to talk about the political climate right now. "It feels like President Obama is playing soccer in Rio with kids and Hillary Clinton seems to be weirdly stepping up, almost like she's being very presidential," he said.

He couldn't understand why Obama was in South America with everything that's been going on the past week or so.

'The Daily Show': Is Hillary Clinton Embarrassed by the Latest WikiLeaks? (VIDEO)

'The Daily Show': Is Hillary Clinton Embarrassed by the Latest WikiLeaks?WikiLeaks! They're like ordinary leaks, but with a geekier name. No, but what are they, really? Well, "WikiLeaks" itself is an international website; the site illegally leaks secret info from government sources.

So far, the WikiLeakers have exposed human rights violations in the Iraq War, and civilian deaths caused by U.S. troops in Afghanistan; the site's latest news "dump" gave details about the bad behavior of American diplomats. Of course, these revelations can make government officials look pretty bad.

'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) weighed in on the impact of the latest leaks, riffing on footage from a press conference with Secretary of State (and head American diplomat) Hillary Clinton. One of the reporters asked Clinton if she was "embarrassed" by the leaks.

Christine O'Donnell Hopes Hillary Clinton Runs For President in 2012 (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 30th 2010 1:15PM
Appearing on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7 AM ET on ABC), Christine O'Donnell told George Stephanopoulos that she was so impressed with the way Hillary Clinton responded to the Wikileaks scandal that she hopes the current Secretary of State runs for President in 2012.

"I hope she runs for president," O'Donnell said. "I would love to see her take out Obama in the primary. I would even be tempted to change my registration so that I could vote for her in the Democratic primary."

O'Donnell then added that while she would ultimately vote for the candidate the Republicans nominate for president in 2012, her primary vote for Hillary wouldn't be because she would be easier for the GOP to beat, but because O'Donnell believes Clinton would be a better president for the country than Barack Obama.

With this endorsement from the most prominent member of our nation's not-a-witch community in her pocket, we can only imagine that Hillary is now seriously considering a 2012 run.

Stephen Colbert Joins Dan Savage's 'It Gets Better Project' to Help Gay Teens (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Nov 30th 2010 2:40AM
Stephen Colbert Joins Dan Savage's 'It Gets Better Project' to Help Gay TeensDan Savage is a syndicated advice columnist who writes about sex and relationships. This past year, when an Indiana teenager committed suicide, Mr. Savage decided to take action. Fifteen-year-old Billy Lucas killed himself after classmates taunted him for being gay. At around this same time, many other gay teens committed suicide due to bullying.

Following these deaths, Dan realized that most gay teens in America had no one to talk to. He felt that if he had met Billy Lucas "for just five minutes," he could have helped him.

Savage wished he could have told Billy that things would "get better." This thought inspired Savage to start the "It Gets Better Project." On 'The Colbert Report' (weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central), Dan explained the project -- and asked Stephen if he would join it.

James Carville Won't Take Back Quip About Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Testicles (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 19th 2010 7:30PM
At a recent breakfast event with reporters, James Carville responded to an inquiry about President Barack Obama's toughness by saying "If Hillary (Clinton) gave up one of her balls and gave it to Obama, he'd have two."

Appearing on 'John King USA' (weekdays, 7PM ET on CNN), Carville refused to back away from the "joke."

"If I offended anybody I'm not sorry, and I don't apologize," a snickering Carville told King. " It was the repeating of a joke, and, apparently, people laughed at it."

So far, neither Obama nor Clinton has commented on this most unconventional of junk touching.

Hillary Clinton Might Really Want Joe Biden's Job, Says Body Language Expert (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 14th 2010 3:52PM
Lately, there's been a lot of talk that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden may switch jobs in 2012. So much so that Biden felt the need to affirm his position on Obama's 2012 ticket at a recent event.

Hillary has also denied a switch is in the cards. However, body language expert Tonya Reiman, appearing on 'The O'Reilly Factor,' (weekdays, 8 PM on Fox News) analyzed some recent footage of Secretary Clinton talking about Biden and came to a different conclusion.

"I think the Vice President is doing a wonderful job," Clinton says in the clip that Reiman analyzed for O'Reilly. "We have a great relationship. . . . and I think both of us are very happy doing what we are doing."

"When she says we're doing a great job, she's doing the head negation, which tells me she's not really sure he's doing a good job," Reiman told O'Reilly.

Reiman then added that the shoulder shrugs Clinton was rather noticeably doing throughout her statement directly contradicted her words.

The fact Hillary might really pine for Biden's post, and all the controversy and hoopla which would go with that potential switch, was music to O'Reilly's ears.

Joy Behar invents a new word -- "testicularity" -- to explain a rumor that a job swap between Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could in the works for 2012, completely confounding actor Patrick Stewart who appears as a guest later on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated).

Jon Stewart Talks Sarah Palin, Iran on 'The O'Reilly Factor' (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly on 'The O'Reilly Factor'Another Jon Stewart segment aired on 'The O'Reilly Factor' (weeknights, 8PM ET on FNC) (check out last night's), and the talk turned to Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton, Iran, and the possibility of Bill O'Reilly running for President with Stewart as his Vice-Presidential running mate.

That's hard to wrap your head around, and no doubt some folks would rather have Stewart as President. Either way, both of these guys can be somewhat annoying. There, we've said it. How about a smackdown in the squared circle? A little 'Wrestlemania' action between these two would be awesome!

Watch the videos after the jump.

Conan O'Brien uncovers President Obama's sexist agenda

by Kona Gallagher, posted Oct 27th 2009 5:33PM
"Girls need to shop for clothes. Period." Words of wisdom from our president. The crack editing staff at The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien has created an amazing clip of President Obama putting women in their place. They took an interview Obama recently gave to NBC news and edited it so it's just a full minute filled with random, nonsensical sexist remarks.

In addition to the quote I mentioned above, he alludes to a nefarious-sounding "strategy" that the men have in place, while a graphic of female politicians, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, hovers ominously. The clip is amazingly well-edited, to the point that if you didn't know what it was, you would swear it was real. In fact, I give it a day before the clip, or at least the quotes, start making the media rounds as fact. Ah, behold the power of late night.

What You Missed Last Night: Clinton solves the Conan/Newark feud

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 9th 2009 2:33PM
At first I thought it was kinda lame that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was going to solve the Tonight Show feud with Newark, NJ mayor Cory Booker via video instead of in person, but it actually worked out better this way (plus she's probably busy with, you know, world stuff).

She was able to intervene in the dispute but at the same time make it clear that she didn't even know what it was about and didn't want Conan to ever bother her again.

What You Missed Last Night: Jon Stewart on Miss Crankypants Suit

You've probably seen video of Hillary Clinton's response to a question at a press conference in the Congo. Someone asked her what President Clinton thought about something. She, well, didn't like that question at all.

I don't quite understand the end though, when the audience "oooos" about the CNN anchors saying the person who asked the question might have been talking about President Obama and made a mistake.

Is the Clinton/Blair relationship really the Clinton movie people want to see?

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 25th 2009 6:00PM
Bill Clinton & Tony BlairWe all have tremendous respect for you, Frost/Nixon writer Peter Morgan (yes, that is what I call him when we're hanging out drinking espressos and doing the crosswords), but do you really think the Clinton story America is just dying to see dramatized is the relationship between former president Bill and former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair? Unless "The Special Relationship," as they're calling it, involves a special blue suit Mr. Blair kept for no explainable reason without cleaning it, I think there's better Clinton dramatics to be had.

Even if you don't go with the most sensational stories, there is a certain historic Presidential campaign. Hell, tell both stories from her perspective, that should be fun. Casting, should HBO greenlight the film, has Dennis Quaid playing Bill, Julianne Moore taking on the current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Michael Sheen (who played Frost in the aforementioned Frost/Nixon) playing Tony Blair. This would be his third film appearance as Blair, which makes you wonder if more people think Blair looks like Sheen than Blair.

Top TV Stories of 2008: The election - VIDEOS

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 2nd 2009 2:00PM
MSNBC Decision 2008
What was the top TV story of the year? The choice was obvious to all of us, and probably all of you, too: The election. The 2008 race for the White House was not only historic, it was dramatic and played out more on TV with recognizable star personas than any election in recent memory.

And like a great TV show, it was a season-long run of highs and lows, tension and release, defeat and victory. Along the way, Americans made a choice about who will run the country for the next four years, but they were also entertained by a near constant barrage of media coverage in the form of maximum cable news, thousands of commercials, daily political commentary both serious and comic, a plethora of debates, and -- naturally -- Saturday Night Live's take on it all.

It all started about a year ago in the cold of Iowa and New Hampshire...

The NY senator, a nanny named Fran? - VIDEO

Fran DEveryone who has been laughing at the idea of Fran Drescher taking over Hillary Clinton's Senate seat for the state of New York, you can stop laughing now. It's not that wild an idea, not when you consider that Fred Grandy -- Gopher from The Love Boat -- was a Congressman from Iowa, and pro wrestler Jesse Ventura was the Governor of Minnesota, and there's a really good chance that Saturday Night Live alum Al Franken (remember Stuart Smalley?) has won the Senate seat for Minnesota, too. (They're still recounting the votes!)

Oh, and let's not forget the Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger from the great state of California. In other words, why not Senator Fran Drescher!

Will Obama be on Saturday Night Live before the election?

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 22nd 2008 12:04PM
ObRemember back at the beginning of the season when Senator Barack Obama was going to be on the premiere of Saturday Night Live but had to bow out because of Hurricane Ike? At the time, we were told that the Democratic presidential candidate would be on later in the year. Well, rumors are flying that Obama will appear on SNL a week from this Saturday, November 1 -- just three days before the election.

NBC has denied the rumors, much like they did all those rumors before Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin appeared last weekend. However, SNL boss Lorne Michaels always holds his cards close to his vest when it comes to big name appearances. Even after gossips reported that Sarah was definitely going to be on the show, NBC and SNL didn't confirm it till the last minute.
