Jemele Hill Has Nothing But Love For ESPN (Video)

… Yeah, now that she is outta there, and cashing BIG checks!

I will admit to being in my feelings (not in the fun Drake way) about the drama ESPN was giving Jemele before her departure, but it looks like she is doing alright now. Better than alright.

Hugh Jackman Remembers Stan Lee As ‘A Creative Genius’ (Video)

Man. Marvel’s Stan Lee was the man. Coolest ‘old dude’ ever – neck and neck with Hugh Hefner. Both were forever young, even in their 90s. Rest In Peace to one of the greats. Let’s let ‘Wolverine’ speak on it.

‘The Front Runner’ star Hugh Jackman remembers thinking his portrayal of Wolverine would make him the center of attention on the red carpet at Comic-Con. That was until the paparazzi abandoned him for Stan Lee.

Jim Acosta Speaks On His Confrontation With President Trump (Video)

Remember when the question kept coming up during Campaign 2016, “Does Donald Trump have the TEMPERAMENT to be President of the United States?” That part.

Answer… NO, he does not.

Even if he thinks reporters are asking unfair or disrespect questions, this is NOT how the leader of the free world should respond. Point. Blank. Period. That said, the reporters, Jim Acosta included, were just doing their jobs. Not as the ‘enemy’ but they are allies; necessary in keeping us informed about what The President and other officials are doing in our name. But don’t you worry about The President attacking members of the press. They can take care of themselves, especially on CNN.

SNL’s Pete Davidson Apologizes On Air To Lt. Com. Dan Crenshaw (Video)

Appropriate for this time of year, recently celebrating Veterans Day in the U.S., SNL’s apology gets two thumbs up AND a salute! Two things: Both sides can be understanding. Both sides can be civil. Both sides can forgive each other. So, both sides should remember that… and NEVER FORGET!

Pete Davidson stops by Weekend Update to apologize for his comments about Lt. Com. Dan Crenshaw.

Candidate Stacey Abrams Speaks On Her Historic Campaign To Become Governor Of Georgia (Video)

If you have done so already, thank you. But now, and in the future, I gotta keep screaming, “VOTE DAMMIT!” Because it is so important. So beyond the “your ancestors fought and died for the rights you enjoy and have a duty to maintain and fight for” rhetoric. Get in that booth and get into true governance of these United States if you are a citizen. Nothing wrong with ‘making America great’ but if you don’t VOTE then the how, who, and what of that will be determined by those who do and who they elect. Point. Blank. Period.

That said, here’s a lady who wants every Georgia voter to check her box at the polls…

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams discusses her passion for criminal justice reform and her effort to get more people of color registered to vote.

Candidate Andrew Gillum Speaks On Race In The Race To Be Florida’s Governor And In Politics As Usual (Video)

Wow. My elders and peers used to always say, “A hit dog’ll holler,” too!

Democratic nominee Andrew Gillum lays out the role of race in the Florida governor’s race, his plan to help all Floridians and how he’d handle Republican opposition if elected.
– The Daily Show With Trevor Noah

Felt compelled to post something political, progressive, and positive with the big mid-terms coming up. President Obama was stumping for Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams AND for this candidate in Florida’s race, Andrew Gillum.

Dave Chappelle Speaks On Ethics And The Relevance Of What He Did NOT Do (Video)

What was that? You wish there was more Dave Chappelle content posted on here? Well, what a coincidence 😉

In a rare interview, comedian Dave Chappelle tells “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King about why he is connecting with a part of his family history at Allen University in Columbia, South Carolina. His great-grandfather, Bishop William David Chappelle, was a former President at the University.

Trevor Noah Declares Trump’s Creation Of ‘Caravan Hysteria’ To Wield As A Weapon Ahead Of Midterm Elections (Video)

Hey, Fox News. Hey President Trump. Those thousands of people you are stoking fear about are NOT an invasion. They are coming to apply for asylum, as is their legal right and the expectation the U.S. has set worldwide for the “tired… poor… huddled masses, yearning to breathe free.” You know, that part!

You are NOT fooling me. You are NOT fooling thoughtful people who will go to the polls next Tuesday (and even now, with early voting) and letting you and your ilk know that we are not your ‘fools.’ #TurnOffFoxNews #TuneOutTrump #VoteThemAllOutTuesday

As the midterm elections near, Trump and Fox News dial up the migrant caravan hysteria as the administration orders 5,200 active duty troops to the southern border to stop a non-threat.
– The Daily Show With Trevor Noah

And that closing with Shepard Smith (longtime Fox News reporter, by the way) was a perfect ‘Moment Of Zen’ way to close this ‘The Daily Show’ (live from Miami) clip.

Journalist Bob Woodward Speaks President Trump’s Relationship With The Media And His Comments On Recent Tragedies (Video)

When it comes to having a seat at the table in political discussions, Bob Woodard’s place is saved permanently (see “Watergate,” because we would not have seen it, or President Nixon resigning because of it, without his reporting)! Maybe he is just echoing what is already constantly said about President Trump, but I will ALWAYS lean in when this guy is speaking on something. Perspectives like his are NEEDED in our world today.

Comedians Dave Chappelle And Jon Stewart Speak On The Era Of President Trump And Their Comedy (Video)

Two of the most brilliantly funny and thoughtful comedians ever – Dave Chappelle and Jon Stewart – sit down with one of the best news commentators today, Christiane Amanpour. Score for CNN… and for us all.

(And Dave says we should NOT consider this the ‘Trump Era’ as he is not worthy and we don’t deserve that. Point taken. Good one.)

FOX’s New Show, “The Passage” (Trailer)

Of course, this triggers me. I’m from Tuskegee, Alabama, where the government carried out the syphilis study (medical research). Sure, this is science fiction, right? No way this could happen in real life. Right. Folks this kind of stuff has happened over and over. My vision ain’t blurry. And that’s not even my third eye seeing… that’s just history… readily available for anyone to read. Just Google “Tuskegee Experiment.”

Bitterness aside, I am still watching this. Fox’s “Gifted” is a good series, and this has a similar feel.

You WANT these two at your dance party. You NEED these two at your dance party. Hahahaaa! But hold up: Did Tiff throw in a li’l crumping into that James Brown shuffle at the end?

Jimmy faces off against Tiffany Haddish in an intense lip sync-off to songs like Post Malone’s “Psycho” and James Brown’s “Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine.”

Wu-Tang Clan – “Protect Ya Neck” / “C.R.E.A.M.” (Live Performance) [Video]

Yooo! I’m mad because NOBODY told me that Kimmel had on the Wu-Tang, WU-TANG, WU-TAAAAANG! And they did the classics LIVE? And who is that doing the ODB (RIP) part of “Protect Ya Neck” though?

(Nope. I’m not going to spoil it. Let me give y’all a hint though…YDB!)

Hit the jump for the “C.R.E.A.M.” performance.

Comedy: Deon Cole Admits To Having To ‘Manage His Blackness’ In Public (Video)

Shhhhh… Deon Cole. C’mon son! You telling ’em all the keys to the Culture. Facts though, especially in DC, where even though there are lots of Black folk we cannot always be ‘Black folk’ (yanadameen?). And Deon pointing out that thickness ’round town and in the crowd is 100% factual, too. Bet both pockets that memes like ‘Thicker Than Cold Peanut Butter’ are out there now if not soon, too (haha)!

Comedy: When ‘Cosby’ Is Your Cellmate (Video)

Hey, you don’t come in this cell with all the filth and foul. Understand that, and share your Jello with your new cellmate, newbie. This is actually hilarious if you can set aside the real-life challenges of Bill Cosby’s incarceration.

(For the record, that fight is not over… because APPEALS process… just saying.)
