Hillary Clinton Trolls Trump, Reads Fire & Fury at 2018 Grammys

In all likelihood, Donald Trump did not watch the 2018 Grammy Awards last night.

After all, the president kicked off Sunday by firing off a combative tweet at Jay Z in response to the rapper's audacious suggestion that the current administration hasn't exactly been a boon to minorities and other groups specifically targeted by Trump.

So unfortunately, the Donald probably missed out on a ceremony that kicked off with a politically-charged performance from Kendrick Lamar and didn't ease up on the timely commentary throughout. 

It's tough to say what he would have thought of the show.

Trump hates being criticized, sure, but not nearly as much as he hates not being the center of attention.

Perhaps that's why for most of the night, the shade was thrown indirectly, with artists making their feelings about the president clear without ever mentioning him by name.

But there was one moment in which the anti-Trump sentiment was made quite clear with the help of some unexpected A-listers and a controversial bestseller.

Fire and Fury is Michael Wolff's scathing tell-all about the Trump White House that basically reads like an in-depth exploration of the reign of Prince Joffrey.

On last night's Grammys, several stars read excerpts from the book, including John Legend, DJ Khaled, Cardi B … and Hillary Clinton.

Yes, Trump's biggest political rival dropped a savage burn in the pre-recorded segment, reading from a portion in which Wolff reveals that the president eats McDonald's because he fears being poisoned.

All over this great nation, the Happy Meal-starved toddlers of America are jotting down a solid new argument to use on mom.

Watch the clip below and stay tuned for news of a Trump coronary event.

Stacy London Posts About Forgiveness; Did She Unblock Clinton Kelly?

For nine years, Stacy London and Clinton Kelly starred on the fashion reality series, What Not To Wear.

Sometimes, working closely with someone can lead to lifelong friendships. In others, though, it can lead to lifelong feuds. And, last November, Stacy London dramatically blocked Clinton Kelly on Twitter.

But now Stacy London has made a long, vague post about forgiveness. Has she changed her tune about her former costar?

Stacy London and Clinton Kelly spent a decade joined at the hip, because that was their job.

They worked together, traveled together, and made appearances together both on and off of their show.

In his 2017 memoir, I Hate Everyone, Except You, Clinton Kelly wrote of Stacy and of their relationship:

I either adored her or despised her and never anything in between.

That sounds like a lot of sibling relationships. And even like a few marriages.

He also explained why he had always felt that way:

We spent nearly 60 hours a week in captivity, rarely more than an arm’s length away from each other.”

That’ll do it.

“Trust me when I tell you that that is just too much time to spend with any other human being you didn’t choose of your own free will.

That sounds like a fair description.

When Stacy London dramatically blocked Clinton on Twitter, he shared it and suggested that he knew why, writing:

“The tea is old. And I never spell tea unless I’m shook, which I’m not.”

That’s a great line. He also used both tea and shook correctly as slang, which is really refreshing when we’re talking about a somewhat older white guy, though not surprising coming from Clinton Kelly.

Now, in a lengthy post to Instagram, Stacy London wrote:

“Last night, I was thinking about forgiveness. It’s very easy to say but sometimes not easy to do truthfully.”

That’s true. Not everyone believes in forgiveness. Others believe that it’s theologically important, or good for their personal well-being. But it’s not easy, regardless.

“If you’re like me when I’m hurt I can hold a grudge. I know the old adage: being angry or vengeful or hateful to someone because they’ve wronged you is like taking poison expecting the other person to die.”

Many have said that, including the late, great Carrie Fisher.

“Anger is much easier to cope with for me than sadness and pain. Being angry feels pro-active and empowering, like I’m in control of the situation.”

She’s absolutely right.

“But last night (and WHY last night, I’m not sure) it occurred to me that taking action like blocking people in order to feel some sense of control over other’s actions is a waste of my time.”

She continues:

“I can’t stop people from the way they behave. I can’t stop them from being angry with me, hurtful to me, or indifferent to me.”

And she talks about how that, specifically, applies to social media.

“I can block ex-friends and ex-lovers, people I feel wronged by, but to what end? For the most part, these people aren’t even looking at my accounts in the first place and even if they were, why would being able to see this highlight reel of my life matter in the slightest?”

The connections to Clinton Kelly and how she famously blocked him are obvious.

“Don’t get me wrong: truly hateful, sexist, misogynistic, xenophobic, homophobic, racist comments are simply not permitted on my accounts.”

That is a very good boundary to set, and good advice for anyone to follow.

“@luvvie taught me that social media is NOT a democracy, it’s a dictatorship only in the sense that if you write on MY page l have every right to delete or block you. Go write nasty shit on your own page.”

But she makes it clear that (though she’s still not naming him) she’s not accusing Clinton Kelly of anything of the sort.

“Those are not the people I’m talking about. I’m talking about those I’ve had trouble forgiving for one reason or another.”

Still vague.

“The problem is the more I hold on to my anger, the more I hurt, not them. And while feeling pain and sadness sucks, it’s necessary, NOT damaging.”

You gotta look out for your own health, folks.

“Forgiveness is something you give yourself to move on, to find peace, to let go. So I unblocked a bunch of people today. If this resonates, maybe you can too.”

It’s not clear if Clinton Kelly has actually been unblocked. (Unlike who’s following whom, list of who has blocked whom are not readily visible).

But … it sure sounds like she may have taken him off of her social media no-fly list. That’s progress.

Hillary Clinton Slammed After “Ignorant” Tweets Following Las Vegas Shooting

Criticizing Hillary Clinton has been a regular pastime for a large swathe of America for the past two or three decades, and that doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon.

Not even following the horrific Mandalay Bay massacre in Las Vegas that killed 58 and injured more than 500.

Critics claim that Hillary’s tweet following the massacre was overly political and displayed “ignorance” of firearms. Did it?

Those who were still up on Sunday night and those waking up to terrible news on Monday morning expressed their reactions to the absolute horror of the shooting in Las Vegas.

Everyone on Twitter, from big-name celebrities to friends to coworkers to that one guest star you thirst-followed three years ago, was speaking out.

Those who couldn’t find the words themselves retweeted those who could.

Hillary Clinton, the 2016 candidate preferred by the majority of American voters and regarded by many as America’s monarch-in-exile, tweeted appropriately.

“Las Vegas, we are grieving with you — the victims, those who lost loved ones, the responders, & all affected by this cold-blooded massacre.”

We all saw the horrifying videos and heard the unmistakable sounds of gunfire. Hillary did, too, and followed up her tweet with this:

“The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get.”

We’ll talk about that bill, don’t you worry.

“Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.”

Obviously, this was the cue to everyone who’s ever read a Cracked article to try to make themselves sound like an expert on firearms.

Hillary was referring to H.R.367, the almost absurdly named Hearing Protection Act of 2017.

Despite it’s name, it’s not a proposed law about noise pollution or public nuisances or hearing aids.

It’s an NRA-backed bill that would make it easier to get silencers for guns by removing restrictions on silencers so that they are regulated just like regular ol’ guns.

As you may have guessed, Hillary’s critics mocked her by pointing out that silencers don’t actually make guns silent; they just muffle the noise somewhat.

An NRA spokeswoman tweeted:

“Suppressors only reduce by a few decibels, still same decibel level as a jack hammer.”

A radio host tweeted:

“Appallingly stupid, and entirely irrelevant, Mrs Clinton She knows nothing about firearms, and even worse, she doesn’t care.”

Though Hillary’s tweet doesn’t immediately convey whether or not she’s aware that silencers do not make guns literally silent, let’s remember two things:

One, Hillary Clinton is an almost frighteningly intelligent person. That’s based on basically every interaction that she’s ever had.

Two, if gunshots are quieter, even just a little bit, that means that fewer people will be aware of them.

Have you ever been to a concert? There are absolutely concerts at which “a few decibels” could make the difference between a gunshot being audible and it going unnoticed save to those who get shot.

Countless public voices have called out for the US to actually, for once, do something to prevent future mass shootings.

Ariana Grande called for gun control, and she is obviously no stranger to terrorist attacks at concerts.

Politicians who rely upon NRA endorsements and funding continue to turn a blind eye to common-sense solutions that have been proven to work in other countries — most notably in Australia.

There are those who characterize the NRA as the greatest ally of domestic terrorists. At this point, that is getting harder and harder to dispute.

But it’s much easier for the pro-gun lobby to criticize people calling for common sense gun regulations than it is for them to explain why, exactly, massacres in which hundreds and hundreds of people are hospitalized are becoming a staple of American existence.
