The affectionate and loving First Family the U.S. had for years has been replaced by a handshaking couple and Jimmy Kimmel can’t stop laughing.
Monday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” had the host poking fun at First Lady Melania Trump during a visit she and President Donald Trump took to visit those at Andrews Air Force Base on Friday. As the Daily Beast quotes, the First Lady seemed a little confused.
“Oh, that’s so beautiful and what is this?” she asked one of the children at the base’s school. “What that means, A.C.?”
“It’s my name!” the child exclaimed.
“Oh! I… know that. I figured it out,” Melania replied. “I just wanted to hear it from you.”
“She knew it! She figured it out! She just wanted to hear it from the kid in case the kid didn’t know what her name was,” Kimmel joked. “Poor Malaria, if her stupid husband hadn’t run for president she’d have been at Bergdorf Goodman buying ankle boots instead of trying to read with children at a table.”
To make matters worse after introducing her husband, Trump shook his wife’s hand and told her to go sit down.
Kimmel called it “the most uncomfortable display of affection between any husband and wife this year.”
“That’s, you know, that’s how it goes when you’re in a relationship. My wife and I shake hands before bed every night. He shut her down like a robot from Westworld,” Kimmel said. “You go sit down. She should’ve walked off that stage and kept walking all the way to Slovenia.”
He then conducted the first ever “Handshake Cam” for those couples in his audience.
Mitch McConnell just gave Democrats a huge gift — by publicly tainting any acquittal of Trump: columnist
It seems all but inevitable that the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump will end with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) mustering the votes to block conviction, no matter what the evidence says and no matter whether Democrats successfully bring in new witnesses and documents.
But McConnell has already handed a victory to Democrats in one key aspect, wrote columnist E. J. Dionne for the Washington Post. His handling of the trial has removed any possibility that impeachment will bolster the president's approval — and emboldened Democrats to take their case to the American people as hard as they can. Indeed, wrote Dionne, Democrats "owe a debt" to McConnell.
Here is how Jason Crow ‘pulled rank’ on John Roberts — and exposed the Chief Justice’s bias
Former Army Ranger Jason Crow repeatedly drew upon his experience serving three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan during his prosecution of President Donald Trump as an impeachment manager.
Crow, who was awarded the Bronze Star and retired as a Captain, attended law school after his military service before successfully winning a seat in Congress during the 2018 midterm elections.
Elie Mystal, a justice correspondent for The Nation magazine, explained how Crow pulled rank on Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.
Mystal broked down how Crow put Roberts in his place with the subtle question of whether senators were getting restless and needed a break.
Rape trial told Harvey Weinstein a ‘seasoned’ predator
Harvey Weinstein was a "seasoned" sexual predator and rapist who abused his power as a movie-producing titan to prey on vulnerable aspiring actresses, prosecutors said Wednesday as his trial heard from its first witness.
Weinstein, wearing a dark suit, shook his head as New York Assistant District Attorney Meghan Hast painted a picture of a 300-pound (140 kilogram) bully who violently raped, humiliated and manipulated several women, leaving them traumatized for years.
His defense team hit back by saying the fallen film producer engaged in consensual relationships with his accusers, including a "loving one" in which the woman called Weinstein "her casual boyfriend."
