After Nykea Aldridge died in the crossfire of a Chicago gun fight on August 26, Trump tweeted: “Dwayne Wade's cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!”
Women's magazines are notorious for their undying devotion to Hillary; but sometimes, they go a bit too far. Hopefully, if you don't get sick, this slideshow will spark some chortles and eye-rolls.
Jimmy Fallon’s back at his Trump act. But this time, the Tonight Show host was joined on stage by avid Hillz supporter Barbra Streisand for an evening of musical Trump bashing. Parodying the Annie Get Your Gun song “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better,” Fallon crooned: “Any wall you can build, I can build taller.” Later, he sang “I can build casinos and deport Latinos,” to which Streisand parried: “I can vote for Hillary … she’s going to win, and she’s going to win HUUUGE.”
One of the liberal media’s favorite Hollywood actors, Leonardo DiCaprio, intended to host a fundraiser in his home for Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton.
However, he backed out and the fundraiser was moved to Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s house, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Here’s a shocker: Parker Sawyers — who portrays Barack Obama in Southside with You — actually grew up in a Republican household. In an interview with The Daily Beast’s Matt Wilstein, Sawyers discussed the new film about the Obamas’ first date, while also revealing details of his own Indiana childhood. “My parents were really good people,” he said, adding, “And I’m not saying Republicans aren’t. It wasn’t like we were like Republicans are today.”
Ben-Hur: when missing a golden opportunity for a gay love twist hurts worse than losing a chariot race.
Turns out not everyone is pleased with the platonic relationship between Ben-Hur and Messala in Timur Bekmambetov’s upcoming remake of the epic classic.

Did we miss something, or did the media just admit Hollywood’s double standard on guns?
It was a pleasant surprise this morning to discover that USA Today entertainment writer Andrea Mandell thoroughly addressed the issue in a lengthy article entitled “Guns, Politics and Hollywood Collide.”
According to Tomasky, Democrats shouldn’t feel lucky that they haven’t dealt with a loose-cannon celebrity candidate à la Donald Trump. Rather, they should be proud that their party wouldn’t come close to nominating anyone like that in the first place. “I feel for conservative pundits and thinkers to some extent, I really do,” wrote Tomasky in a Monday column. “I’ve wondered many times what I would do if the situation were reversed. But here’s the thing: The situation is not reversed. And it would never be reversed. The idea that the Democrats would nominate Sean Penn or, I don’t know, Alan Grayson...or Charlie Sheen or Susan Sarandon or whomever is totally insane.”
Hollywood deserves to be criticized, but not because it is, in any way, a bastion of conservatism. Actor Jared Leto disagrees. In a recent interview with GQ Style for his movie Suicide Squad, the Oscar winner was asked if America was ready to accept a gay leading actor. Leto’s response was that in Hollywood, “I definitely don’t think a gay leading man would have the same opportunities as a straight leading man.”
Now that he’s is the official Republican nominee, the Trump bashing is soaring to new heights. On Wednesday night’s episode of The Late Late Show, host James Corden teamed up with comedian Denis Leary to sing a new song: “Trump’s An A*sshole.”
NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt disputed the notion that his network was responsible for Donald Trump nabbing the republican presidential nomination. "There's really not that much of a correlation between one and the other," Greenblatt said in reference to Trump’s appearance on television and his success as a presidential candidate.
