Bill Taylor’s Jaw-Dropping Ukraine Testimony Expected to ‘Accelerate’ Impeachment

Audible gasps are said to have rippled across the room as Bill Taylor, the United States’ top diplomat in Ukraine, delivered a 15-page opening statement to House impeachment investigators on Tuesday. Taylor described in detail, with the help of contemporaneous notes, extensive efforts to leverage hundreds of millions of dollars of foreign assistance and a White House meeting in exchange for investigations into a 2020 rival and a debunked theory about 2016 election interference.

He also illustrated the stakes of Trump’s capricious decision to withhold security assistance, recounting a visit to northern Donbas,

Nonsense Ellen DeGeneres Question Derails an Otherwise Substantive Democratic Debate (Column)

  • Variety
The fourth Democratic debate was dangerously close to being substantive. For almost three (3!) hours, the twelve (12!) candidates onstage tackled questions on foreign policy, reproductive rights, health care, gun control, big tech, and the opioid crisis. While the other debates — and indeed, the entire 2016 presidential campaign — have been marked by meme-able moments and gaffes, the one co-hosted tonight by CNN and “The New York Times” largely featured candidates who know where they stand and what they wanted to say in order to distinguish themselves from the crowd. For every confusing diversion or stumble, there were far more answers with some actual meat to them. It was, to be frank, a surprising deviation from the norm, which has so often seen moderators and candidates alike fighting to create the splashiest moments possible.

And then, with 15 minutes to go, co-moderator Anderson Cooper turned to the final, most ridiculous question of the evening: “Last week,

Democratic Debate #4 Review: Elizabeth Warren Holds Court On Night Of Missed Opportunity On CNN As More Of The Same Old Same Old Endures

  • Deadline
If there are two things that we learned tonight from the fourth Democratic debate of this primary season, it is that Sen. Elizabeth Warren is the front-runner now and these double-digit candidates and multi-hour yak fests make the Academy Awards look like the Indianapolis 500.

The former may be a true upturning of conventional wisdom, but the latter is becoming mind-numbingly irrelevant.

Yes, a thankful Sen. Bernie Sanders may be “feeling great” in his return to the campaign trail after suffering a heart attack two weeks ago today, but most of the rest of the contenders right now look like they are slow walking themselves to potential cabinet gigs in a Warren or Joe Biden cabinet.

By the last half hour of the three-hour affair Tuesday night, the debate co-hosted by CNN and the New York Times seemed to exhaust the participants, the moderators and the relatively quiet audience – which is

Ellen DeGeneres Kisses Howard Stern To Make Everyone Forget About That George W. Bush Photo
Howard Stern is on a mission to make headlines with Ellen DeGeneres. Following criticism for sitting next to former president George W. Bush at a football game, DeGeneres was pitched a, er, unique idea from Stern to help bump the topic from the news cycle. "People were giving you grief about this George Bush picture," Stern said on Monday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "But listen, you know, I'm always with you. I'm on your side. The problem is—and this is a brilliant booking on your part, having me on the show—people have this picture in their mind of you and George Bush.

David Harbour on ‘SNL’: 3 Sketches You Have to See
Ending its initial three-week run, Saturday Night Live closed with another strong episode that solidified this as one of the most promising seasons in several years. While more front-loaded than the first two episodes, this David Harbour-led installment reinforced its early patterns: celebrity-centric cold opens, a heaping help of Kate McKinnon, and plenty of space for the show’s newest cast members to stretch their legs. Bowen Yang and Chloe Fineman both got far more screen time than SNL stalwarts such as Kenan Thompson and Mikey Day this week,

Hulk Actor Mark Ruffalo Calls Out Ellen DeGeneres Over George W. Bush Comments

You don’t want to make Mark Ruffalo angry as you won’t like him when he’s angry.

The outspoken Hulk actor took to Twitter recently to call out television host Ellen DeGeneres regarding her controversial comments surrounding her interaction this past Sunday at the Dallas Cowboys game with George W.

“Just because I don’t agree with someone on everything doesn’t mean that I’m not gonna be friends with them… When I say, ‘Be kind to one another’ I don’t mean only the people that think the same way that you do.

Donald Trump Says The Late Cokie Roberts “Never Treated Me Nicely”; Presidents Express Respect

  • Deadline
Four U.S. presidents paid their respects to ABC News’ longtime correspondent Cokie Roberts today, but only one also whined about the late reporter’s treatment of him. Any guesses?

“I never met her,” President Donald Trump told pool reporters aboard Air Force One today. “She never treated me nicely. But I would like to wish her family well. She was a professional, and I respect professionals. I respect you guys a lot, you people a lot. She was a real professional. Never treated me well, but I certainly respect her as a professional.”

Roberts died today due to complications from breast cancer.

The pool report noted that Trump’s 50-minute conversation with journalists during the Albuquerque-to-Mountain View flight mostly was off the record, but the president did allow the Roberts comments, among others, to be on the record.

The former commanders in chief, presented here in chronological order, were

‘Adam’ Review: Cis Teen Learns a Lesson About Trans Acceptance in Sweetly Progressive Comedy

In “Adam,” a teenager pretends to be trans, and his journey provides a bittersweet gateway to the young man’s sexual awakening. Naturally that arc leads to a whole lot of questions, some of which the movie controls better than others. Some have argued that the very premise of “Adam” yields troubling transphobic implications, going so far as to launch a boycott of the movie well in advance of its release, and those allegations deserve serious attention. But the abject dismissal of the movie on the basis of its premise alone negates the actual mechanics of a narrative that hovers inside a cis male gaze, and charts a path toward its redemption.

“Adam” certainly stimulates a complex dialogue about the biases of its anti-hero and his twisted act of deception. But the thorny representational issue surrounding “Adam” belie its sweet, amiable tone, and there’s much to be appreciated about
