Most of us know “LBJ” as the droning, jowly Texan who became president when Lee Harvey Oswald trained his gun on John F. Kennedy and quashed America’s Camelot dreams. What you recall from there (if you recall a single thing) depends on your age, your race, your geography … maybe your family ties. But not a day goes by that you aren’t affected by Johnson’s policies, the social-minded core of which is ground zero […]

The 2016 White House Correspondents dinner, taking place April 30 (you can catch live coverage, including arrivals, beginning at 6pm ET on C-SPAN) represents President Barack Obama’s eighth and final appearance at the dinner. During the course of the past eight years, a number of hilarious headliners have hosted the event, from Wanda Sykes and Conan O’Brien to Seth Meyers and Jimmy Kimmel, with Comedy Central’s Larry Wilmore hosting this year.

John Oliver takes a giant Drumpf on Donald Trump in latest “Last Week Tonight” clip

In a much more funny, generally more mature and cerebral take than the approach taken by those who would accuse Donald Trump of peeing his pants, or of basically having a small penis, John Oliver, in his imitable fashion, finally tackled The Donald after purposely avoiding him on his HBO show, Last Week Tonight. In case you didn’t see Oliver’s takedown of the man he compares to a back mole — something you might ignore until it becomes so big, scary-looking and out of control that you must deal with it — last night because you were watching the Oscars, it’s worth […]
