Liberals Now Attack Cracker Barrel Over Their Name, Want Them To Change It Due To Racism
Every four years a Presidential election rolls around and Saturday Night Live fires off some of their best sketches, all of which are inspired by the political circus. Today we’re counting down the absolute best SNL political skits. #5 Capitol Hill In a parody of Schoolhouse Rock, Kenan Thompson plays an anti-immigration bill singing the “I’m Just a Bill” song, hopeful to one day be passed into law by the President. Those dreams are dashed when Jay Pharaoh’s Barack Obama swiftly vetoes the bill with a push down the steps of the Capitol Building. There are a few things about this Capitol Hill sketch that make it stand out. Firstly it highlights the disconnect many Americans have with how they think the government works and how it actually works. Secondly this sketch is one few instances where SNL is critical of Obama and his leadership methods, painting him as a brazen commander-in-chief who utilizes the extent of his powers to bypass political red tape. Even the executive action is surprised that he’s written to grant legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants. #4 George W. Bush’s Axis of Evil People go wild for Will Ferrell’s impression of George Dubya and no sketch better exemplifies why better than the Axis of Evil skit. In parody of Bush’s 2002 state of the union, Ferrell drives home how much Bush loves to use the phrase “Axis of Evil” and how broadly he applies the term. #3 Bill Clinton Goes to McDonalds. This 1992 sketch features the late great Phil Hartman as a charismatic Bill Clinton with an insatiable appetite. Hartman’s Clinton thinly disguises a pit stop at McDonalds as community outreach, forgoing his jog to mingle with everyday Americans and take advantage of their good nature. Although this sketch is pre-Lewinsky era Clinton, it still doesn’t miss the obligatory nod to Bill’s womanizing, almost off-handedly predicting his future scandal. The real art of this sketch however, comes from the thick layers of irony in the scene. Hartman’s Clinton slyly gets away with eating through the entire McDonald’s menu in a demonstration explaining how warlords intercept food and foreign aid sent to starving nations. #2 The Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Town Hall Debate Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin’s second debate as Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will go down as the hallmark sketch of the 2016 election. Based Clinton and Trump’s bizarre Washington University debate amidst Trump’s Access Hollywood scandal, SNL didn’t have to dig far to find comedy gold. Both McKinnon’s and Baldwin’s impressions are iconic. McKinnon plays Hillary as an out-of-touch Politician desperately trying to be relatable, while Baldwin’s Trump uses every dirty hand tactic he can to rattle Hillary’s cage. #1 Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton Address America Back during the 2008 elections, the Republican ticket tried to invigorate their John McCain ticket with wildcard Sarah Palin, and Palin’s unique person certainly did draw attention...and mockery from the SNL great Tina Fey. In this sketch Fey’s Palin and Amy Poehler's Hillary address sexism, despite it affecting them in two different ways. The skit goes on to contrast Clinton’s and Palin's individual bids towards the White House, noting that while Clinton is hardworking, the charismatic Palin is still closer to becoming president than she is. But the real juice to this skit is Tina Fey’s performance ladened with wacky Palin-isms. From believing that global warming is a hug from god to the now ever classic line “I can see Russia from my house!”

Let us know in the comments section below.

Ariana Grande is taking heat and getting praise for one of her latest Instagram posts stating “When you're cute but you're also the hardest working 23 year old human being on earth #cute #butalso #CEO #unf--kwitable #haventsleptinyears.” But is Ari tooting her own horn or is the self compliment valid? Ari has been in rehearsals for her upcoming Dangerous Woman tour, recording the Beauty and the Beast theme song, and maintaining a relationship with Mac Miller. The girl is doing it all right now and yes, she’s cute. But when you are doing your thing and really going for it do you need to exclaim to the world how your working or just get it done. As for title of hardest working 23-yr-olds, let’s see who she’s up against. The list of 23 yr olds include: Sam smith, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Josh Hutcherson and Nick Jonas. It’s possible that ARI takes the prize of hardest working 23 yr old of the moment.

Lily Rose Depp is a muse of Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld. But it was lily taking style inspiration from the man himself when she attended the Chaumet's Cocktail Party and Dinner for Cesar's Revelations in Paris, France, on Monday night. The beauty looked incredible in a smart black suit worn with white shirt and loose fitting black tie as she made her way to the venue. However, she added her own spin to the look, wearing a pair of pink satin heels, which drew the eye. Lily is the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, a French model actress and artist. Vanessa was at one time the spokesperson for Chanel and her daughter Lilly is following her mother’s footsteps as closely as possible. Lilly has walked the Chanel runway show and will be starring in 3 films this year one as Kate Barlow in Planetarium, a fantasy drama alongside Natalie Portman where two sisters are believed to posses the ability to connect with spirits. She also played the protégé and rival Isadora Duncan in The Dancer, a biographical, musical drama about her character's complex relationship with another.

Margot Robbie is one of our favorite actresses. She took the world by storm when she made her big screen debut in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ charmed us in ‘Focus,’ and had us obsessed in ‘Suicide Squad’ as Harley Quinn. But its her next role that has us talking. New photos have hit the web of the stunning beauty in character as the 90s ice skating champion Tonya Harding, for the upcoming film ‘I Tonya.’ Definitely a new look for Margot and for us! ‘I Tonya’ is about competitive ice skater, Tonya Harding, who rises among the ranks at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, but her future in the sport is thrown into doubt, when her boyfriend intervenes. She and her boyfriend were up to no good. We don’t want to spoil it but a lot of us know what happened!
Has there been anything else to talk about recently except the Weeknd and Selena? Well a source close to him is spilling the tea about just how Justin really feels about Selena dating the Weeknd and it turns out that Justin thinks that Selena is using the the Weeknd! The source goes on to say that Weeknd and Selena are working on some music together and as history would have it, leads Justin to believe she is up to her usual ways. Lets bring it back. It was rumored last year that Zedd and Selena’s relationship was for promotional purposes. They linked up in the studio for the first time to work on ‘I Want You To Know’ and “started dating”. . . Zedd said they literally met for the first time when both were coming and going to the bathroom. Then after the sizzle of the single ran its course, and Diplo called them out for a fake relationship, the couple split. Nick Jonas put out a song called ‘Area Code’ which had everyone talking because he potentially mentions his ex Selena in the lyrics “You say I never been good for you / You can’t deny I gave it good to you.” Was ‘good for you’ for Nick..or Justin? Justin even has claimed Selena used him for her music promotion. Is the Weeknd next in this line or is this fling the real deal? Now In the Weeknds new single Party Monster the lyrics go “Ass like Selena” which we all thought were about Selena Gomez right!? But apparently it’s about Selena Quintanilla the 90s singer, but who knows? Apparently Selena G is his type so you don’t know. Selena Gomez is actually named after her. Is the Weeknd next in this line or is this fling the real deal? Let us know in the comments below.

Mark this down as one of the comfiest birthday parties ever. Jessica Alba threw hubby Cash Warren a Pajama themed birthday party this past weekend. The Honest Co. founder posted a video of her kissing Cash in his birthday pajama suit and captioned it: “Love you babe! Last Night’s pajama jammy jam was a blast!” The alcohol was flowing, good times were definitely rolling and Alba even tried her hand at beer pong. Her long list of A-list friends who attended the party include Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Kourtney Kardashian, Nicole Richie to name a few. Cash and Jessica will celebrate their ninth wedding anniversary this May and they have two daughters together.
Oh snap! Looks like someone isn't exactly happy her ex has moved on to another woman. Rihanna just threw some major shade at Drake. Now, we already knew that Rihanna isn't keen on the Dra - Lo romance, but this new cheap shot is a whole new level of shade. See, Drake's literally been all up on J-Lo on social media, and vice versa. These two are inseparable! We've noticed, and so has RiRi and her crew. Rihann's best friend Melissa Forde posted a cryptic jab on social media that many fans thought was directed at Drake. “Your Man Crush Monday be knocking over girls in the VIP to stand next to rappers.” Rihanna pretty much confirmed this post was about Drake by leaving this comment. “And Athletes, LMAO.” Ok, so let's back it up and explain why this IS a knock on Drake. The rapper has actually been accused of being a male groupie - he's always hanging out with athletes and posting paparazzi shots of them together. Plus, once upon a time Drake's roommate was Odell Beckham Jr., which fueled the fire that Drake's out for athlete bromances. So yeah… Rihanna's little comment was absolutely shade towards her ex. We think it's safe to say the singer's anger towards Drake is related to his newfound relationship with Jennifer Lopez. Sources told Hollywood life that Rihanna feels betrayed by Drake because he moved on so quickly. “Everything Drake's done since their split has been cold-hearted,” the insider said. “Rihanna and Drake always had an up and down relationship but Rihanna really thought he would still at least be considerate of her feelings. She added she was very hurt by J-Lo too, considering they used to be friends.” But hey, at least we're getting some good shade from all this relationship drama! What do you think? Was Rihanna's jab justified, or does she need to get over the breakup? Let us know in the comment section below.
The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge is back, but the challenge this time around is figuring out whether or not she got her lips reduced! Kylie Jenner is famous for her puffy pout. She did build her own empire off of lip-kits, after all. Now it’s no secret that her lips are not natural, she admitted on an episode of KUWTK to getting her lips filled, which we all knew was the case. But in recent photos of her walking the carpet for a Golden Globes after-party with big sis Kendall, her lips seemed to be a little less voluptuous than usual. So now she’s got the rumor mill buzzing that she’s scaled back on her lip fillers. Seriously, when aren’t the Kar-Jenners making headlines? If you take a look at these photos side by side, the one on the left is from two weeks ago, and the one on the right is the Globes pic everyone is scrutinizing. In the left picture her lips do look noticeably fuller, but is the Kylie’s way of doing an amazing job at her makeup? Is she leading us to believe she got her lips taken back, when in fact she’s just a magician with makeup? Among her many talents, makeup is clearly one of them. Kylie has posted videos on her social media accounts of her doing amazing eye makeup on her friends and she did get Kendall in some hot water over her lips last year during a Live Q&A. I have to admit it did look like she got some work done. But low key, Kylie fooled us all into thinking Kendall got her lips done when in reality, Kylie is just really amazing with lip liner and lipstick! Kylie is the queen of lip kits, so it makes sense that she is able to enhance, reduce, and shape-shift her lips! The verdict is still out on whether or not Kylie got her lips reduced, but I want to hear your thoughts on this. Let us know what you’re thinking in the comments section below.
Justin Bieber is a man of few words these days. He avoids adoring fans asking for pics, he’s not a fan of making small talk with the paps… and he REALLY doesn’t like commenting about his ex, Selena Gomez. Saturday night paparazzi got the “Sorry” singer leaving CATCH LA with new BFF Patrick Schwarzenegger. They bum rushed him with the question that’s on everyone’s mind … “What do you think about Selena and The Weeknd hooking up?” His response… absolutely nada! Yep, he stayed tight-lipped about the new “it” couple in Hollywood, but we have an inkling that he’s feeling the heat to hook up with a new hottie. The Biebs books it into and out of the restaurant, steering clear, or TRYING to steer clear of the paparazzi and their damned questions. Selena and the weeknd went very public with their PDA last week. Selena was hanging all over him, giving him kisses on his cheeks and of course they played some tonsil hockey. The couple, who both are rather private about their lives, didn’t waste anytime admitting to being a couple and shoving it in everyone’s face. But let’s be real, we aren’t mad about it. Bella Hadid responded to the relationship by un-following Selena on social media, and posting a very sexy boomerang video to her Instagram account. Did somebody say revenge?? Also, her caption says, “goodnight, love and light to you all.” Just curious, who wears a one-piece swimsuit to bed? Is this a new body-sculpting trend? Anyways, Bella Hadid seems to be doing fine post ‘Welena,’ or whatever their new couple nickname is, and Bieber well he and Schwarzenegger are probably sharing crazy stories of girlfriends past. Schwarzenegger briefly dated T-Swift when he was 18 years old and you know Justin and Selena were Hollywood sweethearts. Oh, to be a fly on that restaurant wall! What do you guys think of Justin’s lack of words about Selena and the Weeknd? Is he really bothered by it, or could he care less? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
Some old flames just don’t burn out, and now we’ve got ourselves asking… are Justin and Kourtney Kardashian back to hooking up??? The friends with benefits were spotted partying together at the same nightclub on Saturday night. Kourtney hit up Jessica Alba’s hubby’s pajama party birthday bash beforehand with best buds Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, who by the way are absolute goals! She was later seen going into The Peppermint Club in West Hollywood wearing a sexy and see through body suit. Justin and Kourt didn’t arrive together, but photos caught them leaving around the same time! This is scandalous news, because Kourtney is back with her babies daddy, Scott Disick. The couple got back together in September after a steamy trip to Miami. Just two weeks ago, Kourtney uploaded photos of her and Scott together on their annual skiing trip to Colorado. It seemed like everything was great between them, they were getting goofy and dancing together on the wing of a jet. BUT the oldest Kardashian sister got our heads turning when she tweeted last week about having trust issues. We don’t know if this directly about Scott or not, but their track record isn’t the greatest. KUWTK documented their crazy up and down relationship throughout the years and we know Scott can definitely not be trusted… with alcohol or women. Now back to Justin and Kourtney… those two reportedly started hooking up in 2015 and were getting together, in THAT WAY, on and off for months! Kourt and The Biebs were spotted together on numerous occasions when word got out they first started hooking up, she even attended his Purpose World Tour in L.A. Kourtney has been known to let her hair down when she’s off mom-duty and the girl can party until the early morning, so it works perfectly with Beiber’s schedule. To add more drama to it all, not that we need it, Biebs has gone on record saying the reality star was just “using him” during their fling. I’m sorry, but Justin uses women like he uses socks… on the daily!! Obviously this is all hearsay, and we can’t confirm whether or not Kourtney is done with Scott and back with Bieber, but if she’s single again, she is certainly free to mingle. Let us your thoughts about Kourtney and Bieber possibly getting back together!
And the hits just keep on coming for Bella Hadid. Yep, another day another drama between Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez. As you know by now or should know, Bella Hadid is pissed Selena Gomez and The Weeknd are dating. Pics of the couple getting awfully kissy with each other surfaced last week after they were caught leaving dinner together. Bella unfollowed Selena on Instagram immediately after she got wind of it, and that’s pretty much a big “F U” to Selena. But Selena isn’t bothered by Bella’s move, because she says they weren’t even that close to begin with. Who Selena IS close with is Bella’s older sister, Gigi Hadid. The two are very close friends and part of “The Squad” aka Taylor Swifts crew of A-List friends. Gigi is reportedly still friends with Selena, but will always have Bella’s back. Sisters before misters am I right? TMZ reports, “if Selena felt guilty for dating The Weeknd and wanted to let Bella know, she would have… but she didn’t because she and Bella aren’t close friends. Gigi is trying to play the role of peacemaker between the two, because she knows Selena is a good person, and Bella is blood… so yeah, Gigi is definitely in between a rock and a hard place. Sources told The Hollywoodlife, “Gigi will always be Team Bella, but she’s also in a tough spot because she really likes Selena. She’s 100% supporting Bella and has told her she’ll do whatever she thinks is best. But down the road, when feelings have cooled off, Gigi does hope they can all sit down and talk this out.” Gigi should try her best to stay out of the middle. That’s one road you do not want to venture down. This drama is just way too much, so how are you guys handling all this Bella, Selena, Gigi, Weeknd web of nonsense? Let us know in the comments below.
Dancing With the Stars’ Peta Murgatroyd is getting real about her body after giving birth. The new mom wants other moms to know, you don't bounce back right away. Peta and her fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy welcomed their baby boy, Shai Aleksander a little more than a week ago and while we've only seen the smallest glimpse of the newborn - Peta is showing off her post baby body. The new mom got real on Instagram when she shared a mirror selfie. “Real life,” she wrote. “I took this photo 8 days post birth. I left the hospital looking 5 months pregnant. Many people think a woman should shrink right back to her pre birth weight immediately. That is just not the truth for most.” Peta then gave her fans a little inspiration, especially the new mothers just like her. “The female body is incredible and resilient,” she continued. “But healing and strengthening takes time. Now it's time for patience and hard work. Lots of love to all the new mamas out there on the journey.”

The internet was set ablaze after it was revealed that Selena Gomez was spotted kissing R&B artist The Weeknd. This is certainly the most adult relationship for the 24-year-old singer and actress to this point. Let's take a look back at some other romances that have entered Selena's life over the years. Who do you think was or would be the perfect boyfriend for Selena Gomez? Let us know in the comments below.
Kylie Jenner and Selena Gomez both just got dramatic new looks, and may have just started the first beauty trend of 2017. First off, Kylie posted a photo on Instagram showing off new platinum blond hair and a super short bob. I think Kylie looks stunning but let’s be real she’s basically unrecognizable! Looks like Kylie took the whole “new year, new me” thing very seriously. But this isn’t really out of the ordinary for Kylie. We’ve seen her rock pretty much every hair cut, color, and style imaginable. And I’m starting to wonder if she has some sort of hair style bucket list? Seriously, is there a look she hasn’t tried? And then there’s queen Selena who is usually less likely to take style risks, but can virtually pull off any look ever. Unlike Kylie, Selena kept her natural hair color but just revealed a much shorter do, when her beauty team posted a behind-the-scenes photo literally an hour after Kylie. Her makeup artist even teased the photo saying it was for a “secret” project. Perhaps it’s the same project that was behind this recent shot of Selena. But just when you thought this was it for celebs debuting this particular new look, think again! Because Shay Mitchell also just rocked this shorter look. Do you guys think this a hair trend that’s going to last? And so far, who wore it best? Kylie or Selena? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
We hear it all the time from stars- "that’s a rumor," "tabloid trash," "complete lie." Sometimes the rumors are actually true and celebrities don’t want anyone to know. But other times, these ridiculous claims are totally wrong. Poor Kylie Jenner has to deal with this a lot, but that’s the price you have to pay for being a celebrity. Here’s our countdown of the top 5 false rumors about Kylie Jenner.
Taylor Swift is basically queen of making cute posts for her friends on their birthdays. Her whole feed is basically one big birthday card. No seriously, have you guys ever noticed? But yesterday, Taylor posted maybe, probably, definitely the best birthday wish she’s ever posted. And while it was sweet, it was more like a gift for all us. Here take a look. In her latest post, she wished Zayn Malik a very happy 24th birthday with what looks to be a teaser of their new music video for “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”. The track, of course, is from the new Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack and in true Taylor fashion, made it way to the top of the charts as soon as it dropped. Taylor captioned what looks to be dramatic still of a video saying "happy Z day.” Last month, Zayn talked about his collaboration with Taylor and said it was thanks, in part, to his girlfriend Gigi Hadid's friendship with the singer. Who we all know by now is a key player in Taylor’s girl squad. Speaking of Gigi, she also took to Instagram to wish her boy a happy birthday, posting a shot with the caption “happy birthday my handsome! So lucky to know and love a soul like yours. Wishing you the best year ever!” Rumors were spinning that Gigi may also make a cameo in their music video because she was also spotted in London at the same time the video was being shot. This wouldn’t be the first time Gigi was in a music video with Zayn, and it wouldn’t be a first for her and Taylor as well. Gigi starred in Zayn’s ‘Pillowtalk’ music video and Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ video. The new Fifty Shades movie is just weeks away, so we don’t think we’ll have to “wait” much longer to see the full video and find out if this prediction is true!
