President Mike Teavee spent “Executive Time” attacking Alec Baldwin again because I guess his schedule is completely free of anything actually important to do

Someone was up early this morning thinking big thoughts about Alec Baldwin!

First of all, it needs to be noted that the tweet above is an edited and spellchecked version of the original tweet which was just fucking hilarious:

To be fair, I’m actually impressed he knows how to spell “mediocre,” especially since he can’t get “dying” right.

So, what is this nonsense all about? No, you didn’t miss an episode of Saturday Night Live. Alec Baldwin is debuting a new talk show on ABC following the Oscars on Sunday, and in advance of it, Baldwin gave an interview to The Hollywood Reporter. I mentioned it in yesterday’s post in reference to the bullshit he had to say about the #MeToo movement, in which he defended his defending of sex predators as being “normal.” Fuck off, Alec Baldwin.

In this same interview, he said portraying Trump is “agony.”

Every time I do it now, it’s like agony. Agony. I can’t. If things don’t go in the right direction for the midterms. … I could go out on the street, stand on any corner and tap 10 people on the shoulder. And all 10 of them, in all likelihood, would be more qualified — ethically, morally, intellectually and spiritually — than Trump. I’ll vote for Mitt Romney. I don’t care. Anybody over this guy. It doesn’t matter. We have to get rid of him. And that’s another project I’m working on. I was the keynote speaker at the Democratic Dinner in Iowa, and I’m gonna go do a couple more of those this year. My wife and I agreed that we’re gonna give it everything we have. And then if, God forbid, he wins again in 2020, I’m wondering can I host a game show in Spain.

And then Fox & Friends got their hands on this story and did a segment on it. This, of course, is how President DVR heard about it because he sure as shit didn’t read the piece itself.

I suppose I should be more generous with President Binge-Watcher: things are dark at the White House for him these days, what with Hope Hicks leaving, Jared and Ivanka in trouble for financial shenanigans and probably on their way out the door, too, nobody liking his tariff announcement, the NRA telling him he doesn’t mean the things he says and believes, and Mueller closing in on him. Maybe I should just let Grampy watch his Fox News and find whatever pleasure he can from yelling at the handsome man who plays a bizarro version of himself. To be honest, it’s far better to have him picking meaningless fights with actors on Twitter than allowing him to actually do his real job.

Meanwhile, somewhere Darrell Hammond is sitting his Trump wig, waiting for the phone to ring.

The cable news wars are becoming as heated as the East Coast/West Coast rivalry back in the 90s. Let’s hope Anderson Cooper and Sean Hannity aren’t the next Tupac and Biggie.

Who’s going to be the next Bachelorette? We’ll find out next week, but I can tell you right now it ain’t gonna be Seinne, Bekah or Kendall, as much as I would like one of those three to be it.

Scott M. Gimple “shan’t even entertain the thought” of losing Lauren Cohan on The Walking Dead. She’s not going anywhere.

Hey, remember how that murdering monster O.J. Simpson wrote that book If I Did It back in 2007? Well, he also gave an interview to the publisher of the book, Judith Regan, at the time, but Fox decided to not air it because gross. However, for reasons that are super unclear, they are suddenly going to air it on Sunday, March 11, which just happens to be the same day that American Idol will debut on ABC.

Speaking of American Idol, they’ve lined up Luis Fonsi, Bebe Rexha, Cam, Toni Braxton, and Pat Monahan to do duets with the finalists. Sucks to be the finalist who gets stuck with Pat Monahan.

Ha, that asshole who wrote that awful piece on Fox News attacking the U.S. Olympic team for being more diverse has “retired.”

Hey, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are going to present the Best Picture Oscar again. What could go wrong?

Oh dear, Tori Spelling is maybe having a nervous breakdown, possibly because she’s hanging out with the likes of Corrine Olympios?

Tammy Sytch, also known as WWE Hall of Famer Sunny, seems like a handful.

#MeToo News

Jimmy Kimmel is definitely going to bring #MeToo into his Oscars monologue, because how could he not? Also, there is going to be a “moment” carved out of the ceremony to acknowledge the movement. 

Aly Raisman is suing the U.S. Olympic Committee. GOOD.

A company that has Bill Maher as a major investor is being sued by a woman who claims she was fired after she tried to organize African-American employees to seek diversity initiatives after Bill Maher used the N-word on Real Time.

Time’s Up has raised $21 million dollars and heard from 1,700 women from all backgrounds in its first 60 days.

Pamela Anderson is claiming that Harvey Weinstein “bullied” her into being in a bad movie, but that she still wants men to be “passionate and aggressive and make the first move.” Ugh, no, stop.

  1. It truly pains me to admit this, but I think I actually agree with the Orange S***man on this one. I don’t particularly like Alec Baldwin’s Trump either.

    Fortunately it is the only time I have ever agreed with Pres. Bad-Hair.
