Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, visited the Howard Stern Show where he resoundingly shut down the rumors that he is running for U.S. Senate. Ritchie fueled those fires earlier this year, even giving a stump speech during one of his shows. But when Stern asked if he was angling to be a politician, Rock replied, "F--- no, I'm not running for Senate. Are you f---ing kidding me? Who couldn't figure that out?"
This Photo of the Bush Twins on Halloween in 1988 With President George H. W. Bush is Seriously the Weirdest Photo of All-Time
I love American history, politics and the "Today Show," so obviously, I read Jenna and Barbara Bush's book "Sisters First" in about 3 hours. The book was a very vivid, personal account of what it was like to grow up the granddaughter and daughter of a President.
And of course, the book was full of old family photos that the Twins probably wish didn't exist, even though they were taken by a professional photographer and very well done.
One photo in particular is of the girls on Halloween in 1988 days before the presidential election with their grandfather George H.W. Bush. Their dad shared the photo on Instagram a few years ago, but seeing it in the book reminded me of how super weird it is and how no presidential children could ever get away with costumes like this in 2017.
Mainly, it's Barbara. I mean, look at little Barbara Bush. Ol' Barbs is supposed to be a vampire, but she looks a little more like Gene Simmons. Obviously, today every headline would be "First Daughter Dresses as Gene Simmons for Halloween."
Reese Witherspoon Says President Donald Trump is Probably "Just a Big Fan" of "Legally Blonde," So That's How That Speech Thing Happened
Reese Witherspoon has delivered some pretty iconic film lines over the years.
"Look at you! You have a baby. In a bar."
"What like it's hard?"
"Whoever said orange is the new pink was seriously disturbed."
"Baby, baby, baby..."
Of course, more than one of her most memorable lines came from the now iconic, "Legally Blonde." So iconic that earlier this year it seems like President Donald Trump used an Elle Woods speech as his own.
When asked about this on the "Graham Norton Show," Reese responded, "He's probably just a really big fan."
In all honesty, who doesn't love "Legally Blonde"?
Meghan Linsey has received a lot of attention in the wake of kneeling while singing the National Anthem before an NFL game between the Tennessee Titans and the Seattle Seahawks.
Some have applauded her action, others have have respectfully disagreed with the symbolic gesture. But a third group has gone far beyond what is acceptable. In a recent article Linsey wrote for the Washington Post, Linsey revealed that she has received death threats.
Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama are Currently Involved in the World's Most Historical Bromance
On November 4, 1991 President George H.W. Bush joined Presidents Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford and Richard Nixon at the opening of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. It was the first time five living Presidents gathered together at one time.
On May 1, 2013, in Dallas, Texas, President Barack Obama joined Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter at the opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. It was the second time in history five living Presidents gathered together at one time.
But, forget all that proper stuff, because now Presidents just pal around together at golf tournaments like college frat buddies at a reunion weekend.
Andy Samberg recently told Jimmy Kimmel that unlike a lot of people, he's not taking sides in the Taylor Swift-Katy Perry feud. Most recently, Andy worked with Taylor on some spots for AT&T, but he worked with both superstars when he was on "Saturday Night Live."
Since Andy's not taking sides, he's got Jared Kushner working on peace talks between the two, telling Jimmy, "it's right after the Middle East for him."
Actually, one of Taylor's besties, Karlie Kloss, dates Jared's brother Josh. This could really be a thing. Anything to get Katy to stop talking about Taylor's "journey," right?
Tim Allen on "Last Man Standing" Cancellation-- "There's Nothing More Dangerous Than a Likeable Conservative"
Earlier this summer ABC abruptly canceled the Tim Allen led comedy, "Last Man Standing." Allen had a lot to say about it then and he still has a lot to say.
Allen's reaction to the cancellation immediately sparked speculation that his personal politics played a part in the show ending. The issue became so heated that ABC felt compelled to release a statement on it, saying, "We have actors on our shows who have all sorts of different political views. Tim Allen is a valuable part of the Disney/ABC family. He has been for a very, very long time. But Tim Allen's personal politics had nothing whatsoever to do with it."
Uh, I don't really know where to begin with Kid Rock. He is generally irrelevant as a musician but is making a run at the Senate. Yes, the federal legislative body that helps run the country. He hasn't announced an official campaign but is making campaign speeches at concerts and is already under investigation for illegal campaign finance practices. While performing a concert in Grand Rapids, Kid pulled out a podium bearing a modified presidential seal and gave a rhyming rocking stump speech that got his crowd going.
Nothing says "I'm a United States Senator," like a Facebook post that tells a group of concerned citizens to F off. Right? Right, if you're Kid Rock.
