Donald Trump Jr. Tells Sean Hannity That The Dow Exonerates His Dad

THE HUFFINGTON POST After James Comey’s Senate hearing Thursday, Donald Trump Jr. told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that the stock market’s rise amid the proceedings cleared the president’s name. “When the Dow hits another all-time record right during the testimony, you know that he’s been exonerated,” President Donald Trump’s eldest child said. “The markets basically said this has been nonsense.” Watch the latest video at The market did indeed peak toward the end of the testimony, CNN reported, but Wall Street’s reaction doesn’t exactly constitute a judge and jury. Following an earlier Twitter rant, the president’s elder son had more to say to...

Melissa Etheridge Doesn’t Want To Be Judged For Smoking Pot With Her Kids

THE HUFFINGTON POST Grammy winner Melissa Etheridge seems to believe it’s high time she defended her choice to sometimes smoke pot with her kids. The “Come To My Window” singer caused a stir recently when she said she lit up with her 18-year-old son Beckett and 20-year-old daughter Bailey.  “People will judge my mothering or whatever,” the 55-year-old performer said Wednesday on “Access Hollywood.” “My kids grew up in Southern California. It’s not a crazy thing. It was a decision. It’s not something I do a lot, at all, hardly.” “It was an experience that was kind of family and sacred,” she...

Chris O’Donnell Recalls That Time Donald Trump Demanded A Part In ‘Scent Of A Woman’

Chris O’Donnell told host Conan O’Brien on his show Wednesday that Trump arranged a bit part in the classic movie “Scent of a Woman.” O’Donnell said that Trump had a deal in which he would appear in movies shot on location at the Plaza Hotel in New York City ― which he owned at the time.

Here’s Why Donald Trump Won’t Be Watching The Oscars

President Donald Trump likely won’t be watching the Academy Awards on Sunday night because, duh. But we’ll let White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer share the official reason why: I think Hollywood is known for being rather far to the left in its opinions, and I’ve got to be honest with you, I think the president will be hosting the Governors’ Ball that night. Mrs. Trump looks forward to putting on a phenomenal event. And the first lady’s put a lot of time into this event, in welcoming our nation’s governors to the capital, and I have a feeling that’s where the president and first lady are going to be focused on Sunday night. MARK RALSTON via Getty ImagesDonald Trump and his wife Melania are shown attending the 2011 Academy Awards, but the president apparenlty won’t be tuning in this time around. The former reality star has fired up feuds with the likes of Meryl Streep (who’s nominated) and has also gotten roasted at previous award shows, so he probably isn’t feeling chummy with show business right about now. Plus, given the anti-administration yuks that will likely spill forth at the Oscars, perhaps Trump wants to spare his ego. While he may not tune in, we have a sneaking suspicion that the commander-in-chief won’t tune out what transpires on Oscar night. Got that, Twitter? He apparently hasn’t been such a fan...
