Politically, if you're reading this, you probably thought President George W. Bush was one of the worst Presidents ever. Or, you think he was the greatest thing to ever happen to this country. You're likely indifferent to his father President George H.W. Bush.

Politics aside, if you're a regular human, you probably took a real liking to both Georges after they left office. How could you not? H.W. is always rockin' those socks and W. started painting. They're the sweetest.

H.W. was recently hospitalized for the second time this year, but this photo of Bush 41 and Bush 43 has us feeling all the feelings.

Don't read either caption until you're completely ready.

I'm here to talk about impressions, the one issue that really matters. I don't know or care what you think about President Trump. I don't know or care what you think of Bill O'Reilly. Don't tell me what you think. I don't care. This is about Alec Baldwin and his impressions.

Welcome to the no-spin zone.

Alec Baldwin, special-recurring-non-cast-non-host-SNL-guest, has upped his game by doing two impersonations simultaneously. Say what you will about Baldwin (and there is a lot you could say), but agree that this is a feat. It's an easy trick to prerecord one impersonation then perform the other live, but really hard to pull off. Cheers.

But are the impressions good? Honestly, I never loved the pouty Trump. Any impression worth it's salt takes a quirk and turns it into a personality, i.e. Dana Carvey's George H.W. Bush. The toddler-about-to-cry doesn't quite land. But Trump, instead of rising above a liberal late night comedy show, hates it and cries about it like a toddler, so here we are.

Baldwin nails O'Reilly: the over enthusiastic smile, his voice ramping up the first half of a sentence only to mumble his way through the second half. the book peddling...it's all there. Even if you are a Factor Faithful-- I assume that is what his fans area called- you can admit he does a good job. The thing is, O'Reilly can laugh about something like this, so it will be short-lived.

We'll have to settle for the lesser of the two Baldwin impressions. C'est la vie...

You can watch both impressions here, but A WARNING FIRST: IF YOU LIKE EITHER REAL PERSON, DON'T WATCH IT. IF SNL MAKES YOU ANGRY WITH IT'S SEXUAL INNUENDO AND DRUG REFERENCES, DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND DON'T WATCH IT. IF YOU ALREADY WANT TO RANT ON FACEBOOK ABOUT THIS DO NOT WATCH THIS! For the rest of you, knock yourself out.


Just when you thought 2017 couldn't get any weirder, The Times of Israel is reporting that the Labor party is pushing back a primary vote because of Britney Spears' first ever concert in the country.

Ballots for party chairperson were set to be cast in Tel Aviv on July 3, the same day that Spears is slated to perform in Hayarkon Park.

Fearing the heavy traffic likely to congest that part of the city, the party's elections committee decided to move the primaries to July 4.

A Labor Party spokesperson told The Times of Israel that the decision would "make it easier for people to reach polling stations."

He added that there had also been "a difficulty in recruiting security guards" for the originally scheduled day.

Not sure that's what it means to "rock the vote," Brit.

First, let's address the irony-- a Twitter rant towards someone who rants on Twitter.

Second, well, there isn't really a second point. But, Natalie Maines is at it again with the politics, this time aimed at President Donald Trump.

The last times Maines went off this brashly against our now President was during campaign season when the Dixie Chicks used a photo of Trump with horns and a goatee resembling the devil on their tour.





Kid Rock is tired of seeing "Made in China" on products, so he's doing something about it.

Kid Rock recently introduced the American Badass Grill, "We are proud to introduce the American Badass Charcoal Grill, made 100% in America, down to the very last screw. Because if it's not made in America, it's not American Badass.
Join Kid Rock in the movement to bring jobs home. And grill up some badass food, while you're at it."




To introduce the grill to consumers, Kid Rock shared a video with facts about US manufacturing and then, also, videos of him blowing up grills not made in America.

Kid Rock also boasts that the grill is:

  • Made in the USA -- by American workers for American workers.
  • Tough. Hardworking. Built to last.
  • Full-throttle grill in a portable size. Large enough to fit 12 burgers, small enough to take the party on the road.
  • Gets the job done. Dual damper system cooks to perfection – hot & fast or low & slow.

Garth Brooks has always been about promoting love and acceptance. And the song that reflects that the most in his catalog was and will always be "We Shall Be Free." Originally released in 1992, Brooks shot an anniversary video for the tune in 2002, but never released it.

Brooks wrote the song after seeing video from the Los Angeles riots.

"I didn't think it would be controversial but when this song first came out, it was not welcomed with opened arms. I guess I'm always surprised because, I guess, I'm just one of those ignorant guys who thinks that everybody kinda feels the same and, man, we don't," Brooks shared.

The anniversary video features appearances from Jay Leno, Vice President Al Gore, Alex Rodriguez, John Travolta, Trisha Yearwood, Michael J. Fox, Dakota Fanning and Trisha Yearwood.

"People have been requesting 'We Shall Be Free' a lot more recently," said Brooks. "Any time there is turmoil, any time there is division, we are looking for a safe place. This song is telling us, 'We've all got our differences, but instead of letting it separate it, let's revel in those differences and use them to our advantage as one.' I truly think that 25 years later, the message has reached its mark.


Justin Timberlake took home the Song of the Year for "CAN'T STOP THE FEELING!" at the 2017 IHeartRadio Music Awards. While his speech included the normal thank yous -- including a special shout out to one of his radio reps -- he took time to speak directly to any of his fans who may be feeling persecuted at this time.

"If you're, Black, Brown, Gay, Lesbian or Trans ... or a sissy singing boy from Tennessee," addressed Justin, who was obviously referring to himself with the latter statement. "Anyone who is treating you unkindly is because they are afraid or they've been taught to be afraid of how important you are."

And then he ended with what has become the quote of the night: "Being different means you make the difference, so f--- 'em."

You may recall that during President Donald Trump's Inauguration, it rained. So, all of the dignitaries in the audience were handed ponchos if they needed one.

One of those people who needed a poncho was President George W. Bush. Finally, a month after the event, Ellen DeGeneres asked President Bush all about it on the "Ellen Show." Hilariously, she even brought up that his mother, former First Lady Barbara Bush also had a bad run-in with a poncho once.



President Bush told Ellen it wasn't the first time he had ever try to wear a poncho, "it just looked like it."
