Merry Christmas! How did you celebrate your Christmas Eve? Well, the good folks at Fox News spent theirs by sneaking in a gloriously overstuffed "Christmas Special" chock full of lots of reminders that CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT JESUS GODDAMMIT. And I sat through it, just because I love you, OK? So I hope you're ready, because we're firing up the cannons in the War On Christmas. It's Fox And Friends Christmas Special time, baby.

This is a show filmed in a giant room full of people who don't think Phil Robertson said anything bad. This isn't a Christmas special. It's a Branch Davidian recruitment film. The general crux of this special seems to be about reminding everyone that Christmas is about Jesus, OK? Fox and Friends will have none of your … [Read more...] about I Watched The

VATICAN CITY—Recalling that he hid it somewhere among the dozens of sarcophagi underneath St. Peter’s Basilica, Pope Francis was reportedly scouring the papal tombs Thursday in search of the final egg from the Vatican Easter Egg Hunt. “If I can’t find this egg, the catacombs will totally reek,” said the frustrated bishop of Rome while rifling through the final resting place of holy pontiffs, crawling on his hands and knees on the crypt floor to peek under the reliquary of Saint Peter. “I found all the eggs tucked away in the Pietà, the tabernacle, and confessional, and the one I hid in the hands of the embalmed body of Pope John XXIII, so the last Easter egg has got to be down here somewhere.” At press time, Pope Francis was reportedly filled with disgust after rolling up the sleeves of his cassock, reaching into Leo X’s coffin, and touching the putrefied remains of an egg from 2016. … [Read more...] about Pope Francis Scouring Papal Tombs For Final Easter Egg Of Vatican Hunt
Just days after legendary Broadway star Jennifer Holliday was named a performer in Donald Trump’s pre-inauguration concert, the Tony and Grammy Award winner announced she will no longer be participating after hearing from “heartbroken” fans. In an open letter published by The Wrap, the “Dreamgirls” star called her initial decision to perform a “lapse of judgement,” and explained how an article by The Daily Beast, which was headlined “Jennifer Holliday Will Perform at Trump’s Inauguration, Which Is Heartbreaking to Gay Fans,” convinced her to distance herself from the January 19 event, dubbed the Make America Great Again!

British singer Charlotte Church has become the latest musician to turn down a request to perform at President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration—and Church's refusal is one of the shortest and bluntest yet. The classical singer responded to Trump using his favorite form of communication: Twitter. Her message was very, very clear. A lengthy list of legendary musicians have joined Church in saying no, including Elton John, Celine Dion, KISS, and David Foster. On Tuesday, singer Rebecca Ferguson released a statement saying that she had declined to perform for Trump after his team told her she couldn't sing iconic anti-lynching protest song "Strange Fruit." So far, the administration has been able to book America's Got Talent star Jackie Evancho, The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and The Rockettes. Some Rockettes have repeatedly spoken out against the decision. Tahirah Hairston is a style writer from Detroit who likes Susan Miller, … [Read more...] about This singer was asked to perform at Trump’s inauguration. Her response was incredible.
