Lib Senator Al Franken Cancels Bill Maher Appearance Amid “House Ni&&er” Comment Controversy


Following the Bill Maher “house ni**er” comment controversy from HBO’s “Real Time” show, Sen. Al Franken has now canceled his appearance..  It wasn’t too long ago that Sen. Franken (D-MN) said he would stand behind liberal comedian Kathy Griffin and appear with her after her ill-fate Trump decapitated head stunt. Guess what, Franken flip-flopped on his words and has since canceled his appearance with Griffin too. This is kind of interesting seeing that Franken got his fame in life from being a former SNL cast member. If there is anyone who would have stood behind fellow comedians, one would have thought it would have been Stuart Smalley. Maher has since apologized for using the term. But the damage has been dome. Because a liberal politician pandering and schilling a book has no room for context of words.

It is rather interesting to see libs attack their own. I guess its a good think Richard Pryor is no longer able to do his act, or Eddie Murphy for that fact. Who finds it fascinating that the Democrat party had no problem electing for year, Sen. Robert Byrd from West Virginia, a former member of the KKK and Exalted Cyclops, yet what Maher said is just completely wrong?

A spokesperson for Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) confirmed to HuffPost that the senator is canceling his appearance on the upcoming episode of “Real Time” in the wake of host Bill Maher’s use of a racial slur on-air.

“Senator Franken believes that what Bill Maher said was inappropriate and offensive, which is why he made the decision not to appear on the next episode of ‘Real Time,’” the spokesperson said in an emailed statement. “He was glad to see Bill, who the Senator considers to be a good friend, apologize and express sincere regret for his comment.”

Last Friday, Maher joked that he was a “house n****r” while in conversation with Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), who invited Maher to “work in the fields” of his represented state. Maher later called his use of the term “offensive.”

The backlash was strong enough for Maher to apologize ? something he’s known for rarely doing ? and for HBO to confirm that the network currently has no plans to fire him.

Sen. Franken (D-MN) Backtracks & Cancels Event with Toxic Comedian Kathy Griffin After Henious Trump Photo Controversy


It would appear that Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) is all talk, as he has flip-flopped and canceled even with disgraced uber-Left comedian Kathy Griffin. The big-mouthed Democratic senator had said on Wednesday that he would still hold an event with Griffin on July 7 in California after she was fired by CNN for her disgraceful and vile photo shoot with a beheaded, bloody mask of President Donald Trump. It would appear the out-of-touch Democrat senator got an earful from his Minnesota constituents. Actions have consequences and Griffin is about to get a life lesson in that what goes around comes around.

Can you imagine that individuals actually find the below picture offensive?

Sen. Al Franken has reversed himself and decided “it would be best” for Kathy Griffin not to attend an event that the Minnesota senator had scheduled with the comedian for July.

The Democratic senator had said on Wednesday that he would still hold an event with Griffin on July 7 in California, even after publicly distancing himself from an image showing Griffin with a faux beheaded President Donald Trump.

But Franken said on Thursday evening that he’d changed his mind regarding the event promoting his new book, “Giant of the Senate.”

“I believe what Kathy Griffin did was inappropriate and not something that should be anywhere in our national discourse. I consider her a friend and I’m glad she realized she crossed the line and apologized,” Franken said.

He added, “After hearing from many Minnesotans who were rightfully offended, I’ve come to the conclusion that it would be best for her not to participate in the event we had previously scheduled. I understand why Minnesotans were upset by this, and I take that very seriously.”

Believe it or not, we can see that Kathy Griffin was hardly sorry in were crocodile tear apology. As per The Daily Caller, Griffin is holding a press conference to whine about the “bullying from the Trump family that she has endured.” WOW, she was bullied? Actions have consequences and you can say adios to your career.

All she did was behead the President of the United States in effigy and make his youngest son cry, and now everybody’s being mean to her. She’s standing up for herself. (Plus, she’s finally getting the attention she’s craved her whole life, and she’s not giving it up without a fight.)

But beyond this “bullying” she’s suffering, and the professional consequences of her decision — she’s been dropped by a company that facilitates defecation, but enough about CNN — I think what’s really tormenting her right now is the shaming by her peers. When even Keith Olbermann thinks you’ve gone too far

Moonbat Comedian Kathy Griffin Beheads President Trump in Photo Shoot … This is Humor?


From TMZ comes the following hideous story where uber-lib comedian Kathy Griffin did a photo shoot with a mask of President Donald Trump’s head, severed and detached from his body. ARE YOU FRIGGING KIDDING ME!!! This is supposed to be humor? Good luck discussing that with the Secret Service. If I didn’t know better, this looks similar to ISIS videos, doesn’t it? As one of the better tweets from Twitchy apply opined, “When they go low, we go ISIS video.” Welcome to the moonbat Left and what is driving it.

Talk about a double standard and hypocrisy. Can you imagine if anyone did this to former President Barack Obama? They would lose their job and be hounded into hiding. According to the poll at TMZ, 23% of individuals actually think this is fair game. Welcome to today’s Democrat party. But of course it would be different if Trump’s head was replaced with Obama’s.

Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin wants Donald Trump’s head … but she wants it bloody and detached from his body.

The comedian posed for the gory shot during a photo session with famed photog Tyler Shields, who’s known for edgy, shocking pics. We got the pic before the release.

During the photo shoot, Kathy joked that she and Tyler would need to move to Mexico once the pics got released, for fear they’d be thrown in prison.


UPDATE I: Kathy Griffin makes lame apology after her hideous photo shoot …  ‘I beg for your forgiveness’.

Apology not accepted. You knew damn well what you were doing as seen in the TMZ video. This fool should get the same treatment as the rodeo clown. Screw you and your apology. You now need to lose your job and your endorsements. You made your bed. CNN needs to cut ties with her now and do so vocally.

An apologetic Kathy Griffin took to Instagram to issue a mea culpa for participating in a photo shoot that featured her holding up a bloody head resembling President Donald Trump.

“I’m a comic,” she said. “I cross the line. I move the line, then I cross it. I went way too far. The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn’t funny. I get it.”

She said she is asking celebrity photographer Tyler Shields to take down the photo.

“I beg for your forgiveness. I went too far,” she said in the post on Tuesday. “I made a mistake and I was wrong.”

Earlier Tuesday, Shields, who is known for his provocative images, released photos he did with Griffin that immediately came under fire from people on Twitter.
The president’s son, Donald Trump Jr, called the imagery “disgusting but not surprising.”

Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Trump’s one-time campaign rival Hillary Clinton, called the photo “vile and wrong.”
“It is never funny to joke about killing a president,” she wrote on Twitter.

UPDATE II: President Trump Calls Out Kathy Griffin On Twitter: ‘Should Be Ashamed.

Jimmy Kimmel: Hillary Clinton Conspiracy Theories Would Be Harder to Believe If They Didn’t Actually Come True (VIDEO)

Kimmel: Clinton Conspiracy Theories Would Be Harder to Believe If They Didn’t Actually Come True ...

As I have always said, humor is truly funny when there is truth to it. As Kimmel opined, hard to call it a conspiracy theory when it actually happens. He went on to joke that “maybe Hillary Clinton had a few too many shots of Trump Vodka the night before.” Folks, the slurred speech is not alcohol, its when she is over-medicated for what ever the neurological disorder is that she is keeping from the American people.

As reported by William Teach at RWN, the American people are not buying Hillary’s latest lie of pneumonia.

RCP: From Kimmel’s monologue on the Monday night broadcast of Jimmy Kimmel Live:

JIMMY KIMMEL: Hillary Clinton was supposed to be in California today… but she had to cancel the trip because of illness. You probably know Hillary was coughing a lot in public last week and then yesterday she was forced to leave a 9/11 memorial because she was feeling faint. Turns out on Friday Clinton’s doctor had diagnosed her with pneumonia but they kept it secret until this happened and they were forced to admit it. You know, these conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton’s health would be a lot harder to believe if they didn’t actually come true.

Or maybe, just maybe, there’s another story here. Let’s run the video where she had to be helped into the van. You probably saw this on the news… We see she’s being kind of supported by one of her handlers there. And then she stumbles a little bit and then Secret Service has to kind of put her into the van.They even get between her and the news cameras. But I tell you, maybe Hillary Clinton doesn’t have pneumonia, maybe Hillary Clinton had a few too many shots of Trump Vodka the night before.

It is kind of funny that the people who don’t think Hillary Clinton is fit and healthy enough to be president are so worried that Hillary Clinton is fit and healthy enough to be president.

Gene Wilder, Star of ‘Willy Wonka’ & ‘Yound Frankenstein’ Dies at 83


Gene Wilder has passed away at the age of 83  from complications from Alzheimer’s and we are a sadder world because of it. He was one of my all-time favorites. Wilder brought us so many laughs from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory to Young Frankenstein to Blazing Saddles to Stir Crazy to one of his lesser known buy hysterical hits, The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes’ Smarter Brother. In the 1970′s and 1980′s there was no one any funnier. Put together director Mel Brooks, Gene Wilder, Richard Prior and Marty Feldman and you get comedic genius. Our loss is Heavens gain as Gene Wilder can now be reunited with for Gilda Radner

Gene Wilder, who regularly stole the show in such comedic gems as “The Producers,” “Blazing Saddles,” “Young Frankenstein,” “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” and “Stir Crazy,” died Monday at his home in Stamford, Conn. His nephew Jordan Walker-Pearlman said he died of complications from Alzheimer’s disease. He was 83.

His nephew said in a statement, “We understand for all the emotional and physical challenges this situation presented we have been among the lucky ones — this illness-pirate, unlike in so many cases, never stole his ability to recognize those that were closest to him, nor took command of his central-gentle-life affirming core personality. The decision to wait until this time to disclose his condition wasn’t vanity, but more so that the countless young children that would smile or call out to him “there’s Willy Wonka,” would not have to be then exposed to an adult referencing illness or trouble and causing delight to travel to worry, disappointment or confusion. He simply couldn’t bear the idea of one less smile in the world.

Quotes from Young Frankenstein that i still use to this day:

[Froederick and Igor are exhuming a dead criminal]
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: What a filthy job.
Igor: Could be worse.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: How?
Igor: Could be raining.
[it starts to pour]

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [to Igor] Now that brain that you gave me. Was it Hans Delbruck’s?
Igor: [pause, then] No.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Ah! Very good. Would you mind telling me whose brain I DID put in?
Igor: Then you won’t be angry?
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: I will NOT be angry.
Igor: Abby someone.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [pause, then] Abby someone. Abby who?
Igor: Abby… Normal.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [pause, then] Abby Normal?
Igor: I’m almost sure that was the name.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [chuckles, then] Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven and a half foot long, fifty-four inch wide GORILLA?
[grabs Igor and starts throttling him]
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Is that what you’re telling me?

Gene Wilder & Gilda Radner – Reunited again

New York Times Obit: Gene Wilder Dies at 83; Star of ‘Willy Wonka’ and ‘Young Frankenstein’.

 Mr. Wilder’s rule for comedy was simple: Don’t try to make it funny; try to make it real. “I’m an actor, not a clown,” he said more than once.

With his haunted blue eyes and an empathy born of his own history of psychic distress, he aspired to touch audiences much as Charlie Chaplin had. The Chaplin film “City Lights,” he said, had “made the biggest impression on me as an actor; it was funny, then sad, then both at the same time.”

Mr. Wilder was an accomplished stage actor as well as a screenwriter, a novelist and the director of four movies in which he starred. (He directed, he once said, “in order to protect what I wrote, which I wrote in order to act.”) But he was best known for playing roles on the big screen that might have been ripped from the pages of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

He was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance as the wizardly title character in “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” (1971). The film was a box-office disappointment, partly because of parental concern that the moral of Roald Dahl’s story — that greedy, gluttonous children should not go unpunished — was too dark in the telling. But it went on to gain a devoted following, and Willy Wonka remains one of the roles with which Mr. Wilder is most closely identified.

In “Blazing Saddles,” a raunchy, no-holds-barred spoof of Hollywood westerns, Mr. Wilder had the relatively quiet role of the Waco Kid, a boozy ex-gunfighter who helps an improbable black sheriff (Cleavon Little) save a town from railroad barons and venal politicians. The film’s once-daring humor may have lost some of its edge over the years, but Mr. Wilder’s next Brooks film, “Young Frankenstein,” has never grown old.

Mr. Wilder himself hatched the idea, envisioning a black-and-white film faithful to the look of the Boris Karloff “Frankenstein,” down to the laboratory equipment, but played for laughs rather than for horror. He would portray an American man of science, the grandson of the infamous Dr. Frankenstein, who tries to turn his back on his heritage (“that’s Frahn-kahn-STEEN”) but finds himself irresistibly drawn to Transylvania to duplicate his grandfather’s creation of a monster in a spooky mountaintop laboratory.
