Jon Stewart's Not Sure Donald Trump Is a True New Yorker After Pizza Debacle (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 2nd 2011 5:42AM
'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Jon Stewart may not be Italian, but he brought out the Italian New Yorker inside him to defend his beloved city on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). The offense was virtually everything to do with Donald Trump's lunch with Sarah Palin.

The former Governor of Alaska brought her bus tour to New York City, where Trump decided to treat her and her family to an authentic New York pizza lunch. Only, according to Stewart, he blew it in every sense of the word, from the pizza joint he chose, to the way he ate his pizza.

"It's New York City," he joked. "I hate to use this term this close to Ground Zero, but we're a bit of a Pizza Mecca."

Donald Trump phones it in on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'Donald Trump met with Sarah Palin for some pizza and politics Tuesday in New York City. Today, Trump phoned in to 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) to shed light on his conversation with Palin, Trump's on again/off again aspirations to run for president, and Palin's own plans.

It has been assumed that Palin will seek the Republican nomination for the 2012 election, but she has yet to make any official announcement. Trump said he asked her the question directly. "I don't want to give anything away, but I'm not sure that she knows the answer herself," he said on 'Live.' "She hates what's happening to the country, she hates what's going on with respect to the economy and jobs, and many of the same issues I have."

Regis Philbin asked if a Palin/Trump ticket might be in the offing. Trump said he'd always liked the sound of Trump/Regis, or even Regis/Trump. But Philbin wouldn't have a show to promote come election season once he retires.

Sarah Palin, 'Comedy Central'Sarah Palin has undertaken a bus tour across America with her family, and it seems to have the news organizations in a tizzy trying to figure out what she's up to. Or, as Stephen Colbert put it on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), "Why is this happening?"

He pointed to her website, which said she's promoting "the fundamental restoration of America." More specifically, she's gaining inspiration from this journey, as is her family. And she's blogging about it on her website.

According to Palin, even her youngest daughter Piper is caught up in the spirit of their journey, remarking how impressive it was that George Washington worked so hard to keep his farm running.

Tina Fey & Darrell Hammond, 'Saturday Night Live'Tina Fey returned to the stage that made her famous when she hosted 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC). She hinted about her most famous impression in the opening monologue, and then later she popped on those glasses and Sarah Palin was back!

But Fey didn't return for this 'SNL' take on the recent Republican debate alone. She was joined on stage by impressionist Darrell Hammond doing his classic Donald Trump, as well as the usual cast playing some of the other Republican candidates. But it was Fey and Hammond who stole the show.

"I just hope tonight that the lamestream media won't twist my words by repeating them verbatim," Fey said in character. She took a moment to acknowledge the elimination of one of "the world's great villains," Katie Couric.

"Others want to bring more light to it and demand that Bill Maher apologize or that NOW defend me for something that was said about me -- by the way, I need NOW's defense like a fish needs a bicycle," Palin said.

Bill Maher Finds Another Way to Compare Charlie Sheen to Sarah Palin (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 14th 2011 9:20AM
For the second week in a row, Bill Maher had some fun comparing Charlie Sheen to Sarah Palin on 'Real Time With Bill Maher' (Friday, 10PM ET on HBO.) This time, Maher did so during his "New Rule" segment, which he kicked off by showing a photo from one of Sheen's latest web-rants, in which the actor had been wearing a pair of Ricky Vaughn-like glasses

"New rule: Image isn't everything. It takes more than some clean clothes and a pair of nerd glasses to take an unemployed ego-lunatic and turn them into ... " Maher proclaimed, as the background photo switched from Sheen wearing glasses to one of the always-bespectacled Sarah Palin. "Oh, never mind."

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 9th 2011 10:45PM
Over the weekend, Sarah Palin ripped Kathy Griffin as an "adult bully" for saying that it was her New Year's resolution to "destroy" Palin's 16-year-old daughter, Willow.

On 'The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell' (weekdays, 8PM ET on MSNBC), Griffin explained that she had targeted Willow because Willow had used the word 'f-g' in a Facebook wall posting, a posting that the media had gotten hold of.

"When you're 16, you know, you're really not supposed to use that word," Griffin said. And that's a word you do really tie in with bullying, especially in the LGBT community -- a community I really don't think she really cares about ... Because you can see if you look at the posting, that's not a joke."
