Samantha Bee's latest video is dedicated to figuring out what the hell Ivanka Trump will be doing these next four years. Ivanka was recently given an official government position — Assistant to the President — and an office in the West Wing. So, what exactly does "Assistant to the President" entail? According to MSNBC, "Ivanka will be the eyes and ears in the White House," to which Bee responds, "If Ivanka's supposed to be her dad's eyes, she'll be spending a lot of time staring at her own boobies." But...
At last weekend’s PaleyFest, Cuba Gooding Jr. took it upon himself to play the annoying kid on the playground and lift up his co-star Sarah Paulson’s dress. Like most women who are forced to “laugh it off” and “not make such a big deal” out of similar behavior, Paulson appeared to take his violation of her privacy and space in stride. Still, the Twittersphere was quick to wonder why a grown man in 2017 thought pulling such a stale move would be cute. While others have...
Dave Chappelle can be described as a polarizing figure. He is funny, he is very intelligent, and he has a sense of humor that has resonated with diverse audiences. I am generally a fan, but I was sincerely disappointed — and later, pissed — after watching part one of his new Netflix special. I should preface this by saying I was not only pissed off by the content, but I was also pissed because as a freelancer, I barely get the opportunity to watch TV!...
“Hers is a story we tell ourselves about America—a founding mother who still defines us.” Most American children grow up watching Disney’s Pocahontas and associate Pocahontas with the love story depicted between her and John Smith. This fictionalized story has captivated our collective imagination since the very founding of this country — her saving of John Smith is quite literally depicted in a frieze inside the dome of the Capitol Rotunda, the very heart of American democracy. But who was she really and why do we put...
Some people trade baseball cards, and others obsess over The Bachelor. There are people losing their shit over March Madness right now, and some who spend the rest of the year playing fantasy football. Then there are people who prefer a different kind of spectator sport — something more performative. And gay. RuPaul’s Drag Race has come a long way since its debut on Logo TV in 2009, now freshly into its ninth season the show moved to Friday nights and is airing on VH1 for...
As if there were anything that could make us more excited about Hulu’s new series The Handmaid’s Tale, the full trailer was just released and it is bone chillingly good. Based on Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel, the series takes place in a future where women are subject to brutal oppression under a strict religious regime. The trailer consists of a series of flashbacks that give context as to how things got so bad. The main character Offred, played by Elizabeth Moss, explains how she was “asleep...
When she’s not playing hilarious businesswoman Brianna Hanson on Netflix’s Grace and Frankie, June Diane Raphael is focused on activism, creating art about outrageous, incredible women, and fostering an empowering community for women at her local JCC. Last week, I talked to Raphael about Brianna’s upcoming arc in Grace and Frankie, her new movie The Disaster Artist, and actions she’s taken as an intersectional feminist post-election. You play Grace’s daughter, Brianna, on Netflix’s Grace and Frankie. What draws you to her? You know, I really love that...
Julia may take a while to respond, and probably won’t make eye contact, but as Sesame Street fairy Abby Cadabby would say, “That’s just Julia being Julia.” In its 47th season, the veteran PBS show will introduce its first muppet with autism, a redhead 4-year-old named Julia. She carries her favorite stuffed rabbit with her and likes to draw, sing and play with her friends Abby, Elmo and Big Bird.    This follows her appearance in print and digital materials as part of the “See Amazing in All...
Samantha Bee typically dedicates the majority of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee to unloading on the Trump administration, breaking down new policies while simultaneously (and comically) pointing out each and every flaw. However, in a segment of her latest episode, Bee turns her finger towards a new group: Democrats. She has a bone to pick with Democrats over the low, low percentage of voter turnout. While the #resistance is bringing awareness to the issues, it’s important that it moves beyond protests and marches. The only way...
“Tell your friends, tell your enemies, tell your families,” Issa Rae, the badass co-creator and star of the HBO show Insecure, just tweeted a video announcing the date of Insecure’s Season 2 [remiere. Psst, it’s July 23rd. Rae wouldn’t comment on the relationship status of Issa (Issa Rae) or Molly (Yvonne Orji), but she did say “it’s about to get hot this summer” and that the already dope show is about to get “doper than ever!” "When does season 2 of #InsecureHBO premiere," you ask? pic.twitter.com/PtyKm2QHNw — Issa...
