Before Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, stepped onto the music scene and was just starting out, she met Luc Carl at a New York City bar in 2005 and they began dating. Not too much is known about their relationship since it happened before she was in the mega spotlight, but they dated on and off over six years and by 2008, it seemed they had called it quits.

In 2010, the lovebirds rekindled their flame but by 2011, they went their separate ways once again. Gaga admitted she had a love for Luc unlike any other in a Rolling Stone interview. “I’ve really never loved anyone like I loved him. Or like I love him,” she said.

Matthew Williams

In 2008, when Gaga released her debut studio album, The Fame, she was linked to Los Angeles designer Matthew “Dada” Williams. He was seen riding in a car with her on her way to the Grammy Awards that year and they were both dressed to impress. Before the year ended, the couple stopped dating and Gaga later spoke out about their connection in an interview with the Evening Standard in 2010.

“Dada is quite brilliant and we were crazy lovers, but I stopped it when we discovered what a strong creative connection we had,” she told the outlet. In addition to being her partner at one time, Matthew actually served as the creative director of Haus of Gaga from 2008 until 2010.

Gaga actually met Taylor Kinney on the set of her music video for the song, “Yoü and I,” which was written about her relationship with Luc, in 2011. He was cast as her love interest and became just that behind the camera as well. During an interview on Watch What Happens Live, Gaga told host Andy Cohen about the magical moment they first worked together.

“We had a good time,” she explained. “I think there was chemistry. We were shooting until 4 or 5 in the morning or something like that. We exchanged information. A few weeks went by and we kept in touch, and then that’s that.”

After years of having a public romance, in Feb. 2015, Taylor proposed to Gaga and she said yes. Their last public appearance together was in March 2016 and by July of that year, they broke up. “Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break,” Gaga wrote in a statement at the time. “We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on. We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.”

In Jan. 2017, Gaga was spotted with Christian Carino for the first time. They were hanging out at a Kings of Leon concert and a month later, he was seen with her at the Super Bowl in Houston, TX. They continued to date throughout the rest of 2017 and into 2018, and after engagement rumors swirled, the lovebirds confirmed them in Oct. 2018. In Jan. 2019, they made their last public appearance together and Gaga seemed to be single once again. During this time, she denied rumors that she was dating her A Star Is Born co-star Bradley Cooper.

Dan Horton

Gaga hinted that she may be dating sound engineer Dan Horton in July 2019 when she shared a photo of a bouquet of flowers and her smelling one in the background and tagged him in it. “Italians cook with love,” she captioned the snapshot along with a red heart emoji. By Oct. 2019, however, Gaga referred to herself as “single.”

Gaga and entrepreneur Michael Polansky were first seen together in Miami, FL and in Jan. 2020, she confirmed their romance with a cozy photo of the two of them on Instagram. They got very close throughout the first half of 2020, including when they quarantined due to the COVID pandemic and a year after they went Instagram official, they showed up to Joe Biden‘s Inauguration in Washington D.C. together.

Shortly after they started dating, a source told us that the talented musician is “serious about” Michael and their future together. “She’s serious about him, this is much more than a fling,” a friend of the singer EXCLUSIVELY shared with HollywoodLife. “She’s already introduced him to her family and they really like him, they approve. She met him through mutual friends and there was an instant attraction between them. It’s more than just physical though, she’s very attracted to his mind, he’s brilliant. He went to Harvard, which is impressive, but what’s even more impressive is that he’s devoted his whole career to philanthropy. That is such a passion of hers, so they’re really aligned there. It’s a great match on many levels.”

As of 2022, Gaga and Michael still appear to be going strong.

The comedian channeled the subject of Netflix’ ‘Inventing Anna,’ who was convicted of grand larceny after she defrauded banks, hotels and friends while posing as a wealthy heiress.

Chloe Fineman has become known for her incredible impersonations, perfectly nailing the voices of such stars as Britney Spears, Reese Witherspoon and Meryl Streep. In a hilarious sketch for the lastest episode of Saturday Night Live, the star proves her chops once again as she took on the odd and ever-changing accent used by actress Julia Garner in portraying Anna Delvey in Netflix’ buzzy drama Inventing Anna.

While chilling in her dressing room at the beginning of the sketch, Chloe suddenly realizes Delvey — who was convicted of grand larceny in 2019 after she defrauded banks, hotels and friends while posing as a wealthy heiress — got what she wanted by simply demanding it in her awkward accent. The notion inspires Chloe to try Delvey’s approach, as she begins barking orders to her fellow cast members while dressed up as the criminal and using a wild voice.

After scolding Andrew Dismukes for having potato chips as snacks instead of sushi from Nobu, Chloe goes on to take a couch from Kyle Mooney, the Joe Biden impersonation from newcomer James Austin Johnson and the Weekend Update anchor job from Michael Che, who celebrates the move and takes off for a vacation. Chloe eventually can’t keep up with all her lies or rising debt, much like Delvey in the series, and is confronted by Kate McKinnon.

“Chloe, I can’t help but notice you’ve been Delvey-ing everyone today,” Kate said to the struggling imposter. “Chloe, you don’t have to do this. The hair, the glasses, the Russian accent that’s also German. You just got to be confident. There’s a real Delvey inside you. It has been all along.”

After Chloe pulls herself together, realizes the mistakes she’s made, and apologizes, she takes off the glasses and exits down the hall. Kate promptly picks up the glasses and puts them on to reveal she is also a version of the insistent, fake heiress. “There can only be one Delvey around here,” Kate fiendishly says into the camera.

SNL didn’t shy away from the political this episode, putting their signature skewer on the political moment with Kate Mckinnon returning as Laura Ingraham.

When Saturday Night Live finally returned from hiatus on Feb. 26, it returned to a world in turmoil. Faced with a shocking and swiftly escalating invasion of Ukraine by Russia, SNL chose a somber and moving cold open highlighting the Ukrainian Chorus Dumka of New York. But this week, with Joe Biden‘s State Of The Union address behind us and new updates overseas, SNL brought their signature satire to the political moment…..and met the mark with a hilarious cold open.

SNL came in hot from the beginning, starting the night off with a cold open featuring Kate McKinnon‘s infamous Laura Ingraham impression, which previously caused the right-wing pundit to call her out. and Alex Moffat as Tucker Carlson, where the pair skewer the right-wing commentators’ support of Russia during the Ukraine invasion. The hilarious opening sketch was even complete with Cecily Strong as Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle singing a rendition of “Shallow” that reveals her real desires to take over Ukraine.

But SNL wasn’t done yet, especially when it came to musical comedy. James Austin Johnson was back with his Donald Trump impression, and this time he had an emotional song dedicated to Russian President Vladimir Putin: “My Funny Valentine.” Hitting home Trump’s close relationship with the controversial president, the strong cold open found a way to skewer the political moment without minimizing the pain and turmoil Ukrainians are facing.

It’s been a hectic political moment for SNL to meet, as the whole world watches a troubling situation unfold between Ukraine and Russia. At the orders of President Putin, Russian forces first began performing “special military operations” in the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv on Feb. 24. Since then, Russia has begun a full-on invasion leading the United States to perform various sanctions on the nation, Ukrainian civilians to begin taking up arms, and stars across the entertainment world to speak out in support of Ukraine.

Last week, although SNL stayed away from any overt spoofs on the fresh and frightening situation, Colin Jost spoke out about Putin’s actions on Weekend Update, calling them a “colossal mistake.” He further got in shots against former president Donald Trump‘s support of Putin, joking: “Donald Trump praised Putin’s invasion of Ukraine saying, ‘this is genius’ — he also said ‘this is genius’ about his son Eric.”

In a moment of bipartisan unity, President Joe Biden called on Congress to further fund the police with necessary resources to fight crime.

President Joe Biden79, addressed the nation on the pressing issue of defunding the police during his State of the Union on Tuesday March 1. The president received a standing ovation from both Republicans and Democrats, as he called for providing police with further funding necessary to fight crime in their communities.

Police funding has been a hot button issue since Black Lives Matter protests throughout the summer of 2020. Biden highlighted police reforms that have been made, including banning chokeholds and requiring body cameras. “Let’s not abandon our streets or choose between safety and equal justice. Let’s come together and protect our communities, restore trust and hold law enforcement accountable,” he said. “We should all agree the answer is not to defund the police. It’s to fund the police. Fund them!”

As the applause settled down Biden continued, “Fund them with resources and training. Resources and training that they need to protect our communities.” He then moved on to more calls for stricter gun control laws, including stronger background checks.

The State of the Union came after a tumultuous week for the president. Biden imposed further sanctions on Russia in wake of President Vladimir Putin‘s attack on Ukraine on Thursday February 24. The president denounced the attack, and showed support for the Ukrainian people in an impassioned speech on Thursday. “Putin is the aggressor. Putin chose this war, and now he and his country will bare the consequences,” he said, as he laid out the plan for sanctions. “The entire world sees clearly what [Putin] and his Kremlin allies are really all about. This was never about a genuine security concern on their part. It was always about naked aggression, about Putin’s desire for empire by any means necessary.”

In the midst of the continued crisis in Ukraine, Biden also announced his nominee to fill Justice Stephen Breyer’s empty Supreme Court seat on Friday. The president named Ketanji Brown Jackson as his pick for the job, making her the first Black woman to be nominated for the nation’s highest court.

As Biden’s first State of the Union, he has much to reflect on from throughout his first year as president. After being inaugurated, one of the chief issues has been addressing the COVID-19 pandemic and getting a steady vaccine rollout. Biden’s speech came as many states loosened COVID restrictions. Prior to the speech, Biden spoke about loosening restrictions in a February 11 interview with NBC News. “There is a relationship between the number of cases you have in your community, and the need to wear masks,” he said. “I’ve tried to make sure we have all the vaccines needed, all the boosters needed, all the masks needed, all the protection that’s needed.”

Throughout his first year in office, Biden has also addressed other pressing issues in the nation, including calling on the Senate to end the filibuster and pass bills to protect voting rights. He’s also spoken out against former President Donald Trumpand his continued pushing of the Big Lie that the election was stolen. Biden called out his predecessor during a special speech given to commemorate the first anniversary of the January 6 insurrection.

Howard Stern spoke out against Donald Trump on the Monday episode of his SiriusXM show after the former president called Russian president Vladimir Putin’s moves in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine ‘genius.’

Howard Stern, 68, is letting the world know he doesn’t agree with Donald Trump or Vladimir Putin when it comes to Russia’s tragic invasion of Ukraine. The radio host revealed that he strongly disagrees with the former U.S. president after he publicly called Putin’s moves “genius” last week.

“The man [Putin] is a human stain. I don’t care how much power he has. Don’t praise him,” Howard said on Monday’s episode of his SiriusXM radio show when talking about Trump’s praise of Putin. “Don’t say what a genius he is. He’s not a genius. He’s a thug. He’s a bully.”

“I voted for many Republicans. I don’t see how I’ll ever get back to that,” Howard continued. “They’ve just totally disappointed me and their support of Vladimir Putin, the praise they heap on him. Trump’s praise of Vladimir Putin. This guy’s a f*cking animal. I wish he was dead like I wish Hitler was dead.”

Howard also expressed his concern for the Ukrainian people and what they’re going through since Russia’s invasion last week.

“I can’t imagine the horror of the life of the Ukrainian people. They’re living in a country – they decided to have free elections … and this scumbag who has more money than anybody, who has more power than anybody, who enslaves an entire country, who will kill you if you’re a journalist, will kill you if you speak out against him, who’s got everything a man could want if you’re truly a megalomaniac, and he didn’t have enough,” he said.

Howard went on to say he thinks Putin “is an enemy of humanity” and called him “a worthless human being” before adding that he wishes “Republicans and Democrats would get together with that message.”

“It’s time for this country to at least have a unified message about democracy and freedom,” he continued. “I’m sick and tired of the f*cking nightmare that’s going on with people defending Vladimir Putin. I never thought I’d live long enough to see it.”

Howard’s comments come after Trump spoke out about the Russia and Ukraine conflict in an interview with two conservative interviewers. He claimed President Joe Biden had no response to the invasion and went on to make his “genius” comment about Putin.

“I went in yesterday and there was a television screen, and I said, ‘This is genius.’ Putin declares a big portion of the Ukraine – of Ukraine. Putin declares it as independent. Oh, that’s wonderful,” Trump said on Feb. 2,  referring to Moscow’s recognition of two separatist nations in occupied Ukrainian Donbas.

With Saturday Night Live back for the first time in weeks, there’s a lot that’s been happening. Instead of choosing to skewer the current stressful world situation, Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong chose to lead the show with an emotional choral tribute to the people of Ukraine as they face invasion from Russia. The beautiful performance of “A Prayer for Ukraine” felt fitting and thoughtful for the somber moment at hand.

Introducing the Ukranian Chorus Dumka of New York, Kate Mckinnon and Cecily Strong stepped offstage, leaving the chorus, all dressed in traditional garb, to perform their moving ballad. In front of the group of 18 singers, there was a display of candles and flowers in a blazing yellow, the Ukrainian national color. The thoughtful and soulful tribute stood out among SNL’s usual silly, satirical cold opens.

The whole world has been watching as the situation between Russia and Ukraine intensifies, after Russia launched its attack on Vladimir Putin‘s command on Thursday, Feb. 24. Celebrities from Ashton Kutcher to Milla Jovovich to Sean Penn have been expressing their condolences and care for the people of the country. In a joint acceptance speech at the NAACP Image Awards on the same evening, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle emphasized that the Ukrainian people “urgently need our continued support as a global community.”

As the situation intensifies, President Joe Biden recently shared a state-of-the-union address discussing how the U.S. will respond. So far, Biden has hit Putin with additional sanctions for what he called a “premeditated” attack, and even emphasized that Putin holds a “sinister vision of the world.” According to The Independent, Biden also recently approved another $600 million of military aid to Ukraine to try and support their struggling army.

Jen Psaki shared that she likes Peppermint Patty and didn’t find Ted Cruz’s comments comparing her to the ‘Charlie Brown’ character as an insult.

Jen Psaki proved she’s unphased by Ted Cruz’s attempt to rouse her as she clapped back at his “Peppermint Patty” diss. During a White House briefing, a reporter asked Joe Biden’s press secretary how she feels about referring to as the Charlie Brown character. “Don’t tell him I like Peppermint Patty. So I’m not gonna take it too offensively,” she said, then turned directly to the cameras. “Senator Cruz, I like Peppermint Patty. I’m a little tougher than that. But there you go.”

Ted Cruz took a moment to diss the press secretary during the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida. “You know Peppermint Patty deserves some love,” he prodded. However, he didn’t get the chuckles he expected as the jab was met with silence. It seems Ted will have to try better if he wants to get a rise out of her.

This isn’t the first time Psaki has been compared to a fictional character. Many Scandal fans have compared her to the character Abby Whelan, a White House press secretary who becomes chief of staff to the fictional President Fitzgerald Grant. It seems many think that Darby Stanchfield is her celebrity look-alike.

Jen also has been known to clap back when needed at a press conference. When asked if President Biden planned on keeping the Space Force instated by Donald Trumpshe had a quip lined up “Wow. Space Force. It’s the plane of today,” Psaki responded, seemingly comparing the question to an earlier one about the color scheme of Air Force One. “It is an interesting question. I am happy to check with our Space Force point of contact. I’m not sure who that is. I will find out and see if we have any update on that.”

After receiving some negative feedback about her response to the Space Force question, she issued a statement that could also be interpreted as equally shady.  “We look forward to the continuing work of Space Force and invite the members of the team to come visit us in the briefing room anytime to share an update on their important work,” she wrote.

Foo Fights frontman Dave Grohl just admitted that he didn’t use protective ear monitors while performing because it ‘removed’ him from the ‘natural atmosphere.’

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, 53, has seemingly rocked too hard. He confessed that he’s basically “deaf” and has been for the past 20 years. “I haven’t had them tested in a long time — I mean, I know what they’re gonna say,” he said of his ears on The Howard Stern Show. “You have hearing damage tinnitus in your left ear, more so than your right ear.”

He then confessed that his hearing is so bad that he struggles to hear people who are sitting right by him. “If you were sitting next to me right here at dinner, I wouldn’t understand a f—ing word you were saying to me, the whole f—ing time. There’s no way,” he told Stern. He had been getting by with lip reading but the emergence of masks due to the coronavirus pandemic has definitely been an obstacle.

“In a crowded restaurant, that’s worse. That’s the worst thing about this pandemic s**t, it’s like, people wearing masks,” he continued. “I’ve been reading lips for like, 20 years… I’m a rock musician. I’m f***ing deaf, I can’t hear what you’re saying.” He admitted that ear monitors could have helped him protect his hearing, but he said he refuses to use them because takes him out of the moment and the “natural atmosphere.” He has certainly proved he’s willing to sacrifice for a good performance after he broke his leg on stage and continued performing.

Fortunately, that hasn’t stopped the rocker from performing. In fact, they recently took the stage for the inauguration of President Joe Biden. They gave a passionate rendition of “Times Like These.” Ahead of the song, he gave a speech about how he had written the song for his mom who was a teacher like Dr. Jill Biden.

He also took the stage when the Foo Fighters was honored as the U.S. recipient of the MTV Global Icon Award. He was joined by Nate Mendel, Taylor Hawkins, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear, and Rami Jaffee to accept the award and rock out in true Foo Fighters fashion. When he’s not performing with the Foo Fighters, he’s being a doting father to his three daughters Violet, Harper, and Ophelia. Ranging from ages seven to 15, the father of three certainly must have his hands full!

The Bidens’ precious new feline, named Willow, is the first cat to reside at the White House since George W. Bush’s presidency over a decade ago.

President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden have expanded their family — their pet family, that is. The couple adopted an adorable cat named Willow, and Jill, 70, debuted the feline on her Instagram page on Friday, January 28. “Meet Willow!💕,” she wrote, alongside three different photos of Willow at the White House.

Michael LaRosa, who is the first lady’s press secretary, told CNN that Willow is a short-haired, two-year-old gray tabby. He also revealed that the pet cat is named after Jill’s hometown: Willow Grove, Pennsylvania.

The Bidens’ were first introduced to Willow while they were on the 2020 presidential election campaign trail. Willow jumped out during a speech that Joe, 79, was giving at a Pennsylvania farm, according to Michael, who said that Jill immediately fell in love with the cat. “Seeing their immediate bond, the owner of the farm knew that Willow belonged with Dr. Biden,” the spokesman said. As reports state, Willow is the first cat to live at the White House since George W. Bush and his wife Laura Bush‘s pet feline, India.

Willow isn’t the only new addition to the Bidens’ pet family. Just days before Christmas, they brought home a German Shepherd named Commander to the White House. The Bidens’ also currently own another German Shepherd, Major, 3, who was temporarily brought to Delaware in March 2021 for a few weeks after he’d bit a security guard and caused a minor injury on March 8. But after training, Major returned home to the White House by the end of the month.

Joe and Jill also had German Shepherd Champ, who they got back in 2008, after President Barack Obama‘s historic election, which Joe Biden was the vice president for. Champ sadly died on June 19 at age 13. “He was our constant, cherished companion during the last 13 years and was adored by the entire Biden family,” the first lady said in a statement announcing Champ’s passing.

Peter Doocy was called ‘a stupid son of a b*tch’ by President Joe Biden after he asked him a question about inflation. Find out more about the gutsy journalist here.

Peter Doocy, 34, unintentionally stepped into the spotlight on Jan. 24 when President Joe Biden, 79, shockingly responded to a question he asked him about inflation by calling him a “stupid son of a b*tch.” It’s unknown if Joe knew his mic was on at the time of his response, but it got the attention of many people shortly after. “Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?” the Fox News reporter asked the politician at a White House event before he answered, “It’s a great asset—more inflation. What a stupid son of a b*tch.”

Peter didn’t hear Biden call him a ‘SOB’ at the time he said it.

He admitted that because of the loud volume in the White House at the time of the exchange, he didn’t hear Biden’s words at the time he said them. When someone eventually told him in the briefing room, he didn’t take it personally and even joked about it in the interview above shortly after.

When a fellow Fox News journalist cheekily suggested that maybe he is “a stupid SOB,” Peter responded with, “Nobody has fact checked him yet and said it’s not true.”

Biden reached out to him ‘within an hour’ of his comment.

“He said ‘It’s nothing personal, pal,’” Peter told Hannity. “And we went back and forth, and we were talking about just kind of moving forward, and I made sure to tell him that I’m always gonna try to ask something different than what everybody else is asking. And he said, ‘You got to.’ And that’s a quote from the president, so I’ll keep doing it.”

When asked if he apologized directly, Peter said he “cleared the air” and he “appreciated it.”

“I don’t need anybody to apologize to me. He can call me whatever he wants as long as it gets him talking!” he added. “I think that’s enough. That’s enough. So we can move on. We can now move forward. There will be years- three to seven years of opportunities to ask him about different stuff.”

Peter studied Political Science in college.

A post shared by Peter Doocy (@pdoocy)

He attended Villanova University in 2009 and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in the subject. While he was still attending the school, he started off his journalism career by contributing to Fox News as a Palestra.net reporter.

One of his biggest interviews was with the former Navy SEAL who claims he killed Osama bin Laden.

Robert O’Neill told Peter about the shot he fired that apparently took the life of the al-Qaeda founder in an exclusive TV interview on Fox News in 2014. It reportedly had the highest ratings of any documentary in Fox News history.

Biden isn’t the first politician to call him out.

Peter also had a shocking interaction with the late Senator John McCain in 2017, which can be seen above, and it led to a question he asked being labeled as “dumb.”

“Has your relationship with the president frayed to the point that you’re not going to support anything that he comes to you and asks for?” Peter asked before McCain responded with, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb, heh? … That’s a dumb question.”

Betty White was ‘radiant,’ ‘beautiful’ and ‘as happy as ever’ in her last days as evidenced in a picture taken 11 days before her death.

Betty White’s assistant blessed the Internet with never-before-seen pictures of the actress that were taken just days before she passed away at 99 years old. The picture was uploaded on Monday, January 17, the day that would’ve been Betty’s 100th birthday. The assistant used the late Golden Girls actress’ Facebook account to share an adorable photo of her wearing a green patterned silk blouse and light green top with white pants. Betty wore her iconic red lipstick as she beamed at the camera.

The picture of Betty 11 days before she died comes with a sweet message from her assistant. “Hello Everyone! It’s Kiersten. Betty’s Assistant. On this special day, I wanted to share this photo of Betty. It was taken on 12/20/21,” she wrote. “I believe it’s one of the last photos of her. She was radiant and beautiful and as happy as ever. Thanks to all of you who are doing kind things today and every day to make the world a better place ❤️”

What’s even sweeter than one of the last pictures taken of Betty was her last word. Betty’s assistant was also by her side as she passed away and told Carol Burnett what the comedian uttered just before she died. Carol texted Vicki Lawrence who told Page Six what those last words were. “I texted Carol and said, ‘This just sucks. I hate this. It’s just horrible to see the people you love so much go away,’” she shared. “Carol wrote back and said, ‘I know, I know. I spoke to Betty’s assistant, who was with her when she passed, and she said the very last word out of her mouth was ‘Allen [Ludden].’” Allen was the name of her late husband.

Betty is continuing to make an impact on the world even in her death. The Hot in Cleveland actress was a passionate animal rights activist. So when she passed, her fans decided to honor her by donating at least $5 to local and national animal shelters for her birthday in what has been dubbed the #BettyWhiteChallenge. The challenge seems to be a hit as it’s trending on Twitter for her 100th birthday.

James Austin Johnson’s Joe Biden urged Americans to ‘stop seeing Spider-Man’ to prevent the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

James Austin Johnson’s Joe Biden had one goal during the cold open on Saturday Night Live: stop seeing Spider-Man: No Way Home to prevent the spread of Omicron. Johnson’s Biden was convinced that the hit film — which stars Tom Holland and Zendaya — was responsible for the massive spread of the virus. “Think about it,” he said on the January 15 episode. “When did Spider-Man come out? December 17th. When did every single person get Omicron? The week after December 17th. Stop seeing Spider-Man,” he urged.

And now, a message from President Joe Biden. pic.twitter.com/Q8TglFNBlF

The variant was spreading rapidly in mid-December, so perhaps Johnson’s Biden had a point. In fact, SNL was also majorly affected by COVID on the final episode of 2021, forcing the series to cancel its live sketches and audience (Tom Hanks was a last minute addition to the Paul Rudd hosted episode, alongside Tina Fey who filled in for Colin Jost). Johnson’s Biden went on to make some additional suggestions to reporters and Americans. “See anything else,” he added. “I saw the first half hour of House of Gucci. That’s more than enough movie for anyone,” referencing Lady Gaga and Adam Driver‘s film.

A reporter then suggested that perhaps there was another version of Biden in the “multi-verse” that “wants people” to see the movie. In the MCU, a multi-verse concept exists — which is how previous Spider-Man actors like Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were able to appear in the latest film with Tom Holland.

“Finally, a good question!” Johnson’s Joe explained. It turns out the concept had crossed his mind “I’ve actually thought about this a lot. I’ve consulted with Dr. Fauci and Dr. Strange [played by Benedict Cumberbatch in the films]. As far as I can tell there are at least three Joe Bidens. One of them is me,” he added.

“One of them is a Joe Biden that lost to [former president Donald] Trump. That Biden hosts a show on CNBC called ‘T-birds, Tacos and Trains.’ And then there’s a third Joe Biden that was the greatest president in history. My approval ratings are sky high, I’m actually supported by my own party, and I understand the show Euphoria,” he went on. Turns out one of the Joe’s was Pete Davidson from the “real universe” with a message for Johnson’s: that his universe was going to be destroyed!

“Everyone on Earth is better off in the real world except one man named Pete Davidson,” Pete’s Joe, rocking futuristic sunglasses and a blazer with nothing underneath, urged. “This world is maybe more fun for him,” Pete added.

Sen. Rand Paul came after Dr. Anthony Fauci during a hearing, but Dr. Fauci fired back by accusing the Republican of using the pandemic for ‘political gain’ while ‘lying about me’ and putting his family at risk.

Dr. Anthony Fauci seemingly had enough of Senator Rand Paul on Tuesday (Jan. 11). “What happens when he [Paul] gets out and accuses me of things that are completely untrue?” Dr. Fauci, 81, asked while testifying at a Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions hearing. Paul, 59, had accused the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of “destroy[ing] the reputations of other scientists who disagree with him,” referring to three conservative academics who opposed lockdown measures in 2020, per the Washington Post. The emails that the Kentucky senator used as proof showed Fauci sending colleagues a link to a Wired article debunking claims about “herd immunity,” and Fauci fired back at Paul. “That’s not what went on. There you go again. You do the same thing every hearing.”

— CBS News (@CBSNews) January 11, 2022

“So the last time we had a committee or the time before, he was accusing me of being responsible for the death of 4 to 5 million people, which is irresponsible,” Dr. Fauci said, per The Daily Beast. Why is he doing that? … The first is, it distracts from what we’re all trying to do here today, [which] is get our arms around the epidemic and pandemic we’re dealing with, not something imaginary. Number two, what happens when he gets out and accuses me of things that are completely untrue? [It]s that all of a sudden, that kindles the crazies out there and I have threats upon my life, harassment of my family, and my children, with obscene phone calls because people are lying about me.”

Fauci: Why would a Senator want to do this? Go to Rand Paul’s website and you see fire Dr. Fauci with a little box that says contribute here. So you are making catastrophic epidemic for your political gain pic.twitter.com/8dvxZ5ELxp

Dr. Fauci hinted at Kuachua Brillion Xiong, 25, a California man arrested during a traffic stop in Iowa in December. Xiong had an AR-15 and multiple magazines of ammunition in his car. He had a “hit list” that included former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, and potentially President Joe Biden. Dr. Fauci’s name wasn’t included in the federal complaint against Xiong, and his attorney indicated in court that the man intends to plead insanity.

That wasn’t the only accusation Dr. Fauci lobbed at his rival. He brought up how Sen. Paul’s reelection website has a “Fire Dr. Fauci” section and includes “a little box that says contribute here. You can do five dollars. Ten dollars. Twenty dollars, a hundred dollars,” Fauci said. “So you are making a catastrophic epidemic for your political gain.” Rand Paul dismissed the criticism by saying it was “disappointing” for Dr. Fauci to “suggest that people who dare to question you are responsible somehow for violent threats.”

President Joe Biden and his wife took a stroll with their adorable new puppy, Commander, on the beach in his home state of Delaware.

President Joe Biden, 79, and First Lady Jill Biden, 70, were accompanied by their furry new friend while on a walk during their holiday vacation to Delaware. The couple and Commander, the adorable new puppy they adopted just days before Christmas, were pictured taking a stroll on December 28 on the Rehoboth Beach. The little German Shepherd appeared to be enjoying the open area of the president’s home state to walk and run around.

The Bidens dressed casually to take Commander out for a walk. Joe wore a black jacket, denim jeans, and black sneakers. He also had on a black hat and a protective face mask, amidst a surge of COVID-19 cases due to the Omicron variant. The 46th president walked Commander on a leash, though at one point he let the dog go free to roam around the beach and play fetch with a tennis ball.

As for Jill, she wore a black jacket, blue jeans, gray Nike sneakers, and a protective face mask for the outing. She walked at a distance from her husband, and held onto the tennis ball until it was time to play fetch with Commander. The couple were reportedly joined by the Secret Service, though they didn’t come close to Joe and Jill. No other people were on the beach, aside from the paparazzi who snapped the photos of the Bidens and Commander.

The Bidens officially welcomed Commander into their family on December 20. Commander was a gift from the president’s family, according to CNN, and the canine is the first new puppy to join the Bidens in the White House. His arrival came six months after the Bidens’ German Shepherd Champ died on June 19 at age 13. The president and first lady got Champ back in 2008, after President Barack Obama‘s historic election, which Joe Biden was the vice president for.

Aside from Commander, the Bidens are also proud dog owners of another German Shepherd, Major, 3. They had Major since 2018, though he was temporarily brought to Delaware in March 2021 for a few weeks after he’d bit a security guard and caused a minor injury on March 8. After the training, Major returned to the White House later that month.

‘RHOC’ alum Meghan King has now confirmed her split from husband Cuffe Owens after only two months of marriage. ‘The situation is profoundly devastating,’ she said.

Meghan King and husband Cuffe Owens are already calling it quits. Just two months after the Real Housewives of Orange County alum tied the knot with President Joe Biden‘s nephew, the whirlwind romance has come to an end and Meghan’s opening up about the “devastating” split.

“I am rattled. This situation is profoundly devastating,” Meghan, 37, wrote in a statement shared in her Instagram Story on Monday, December 27. “This is obviously not what I imagined when I made my vows — and I’m shocked and saddened by the way things turned out. I am moving forward with my children as we privately process our pain and begin to let go of shattered dreams.”

“At this time I ask for your grace and gentle kindness as I navigate this labyrinth of grief with my family,” she continued. It’s not yet clear why Meghan and Cuffe broke up, but after just two months of marriage, their split was first reported by Page Six on Friday, Dec. 24.

Meghan and Cuffe secretly got married on October 11 at his parents’ Pennsylvania estate after just three weeks of dating.

“Our wedding was about two things for us,” Meghan told Brides after the romantic ceremony, which was attended by President Biden, 79, and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden. “Our love for and commitment to each other, and our family — each of our families, and the new very large and very tight family that we were bonding together by getting married. That’s it.”

When Meghan shared their wedding photos on Instagram, she said that she and Cuffe “just knew” they were meant to be after meeting on the dating app Raya.

Meghan, who shares Aspen, 5, and twins Hayes and Hart, both 3, with ex-husband Jim Edmonds, was previously married to the retired MLB player from 2014 to 2021.

Kamala Harris defended Joe Biden during a heated exchange with Charlamagne after he questioned whether Biden or Senator Joe Manchin was running the country.

Vice President Kamala Harris defended President Joe Biden after Charlamagne tha God questioned if Biden or Democratic Senator Joe Manchin was running the country. During a heated exchange on Charlamagne’s Comedy Central show Tha God’s Honest Truth on December 17, the host pressed Harris about calling Manchin out for his continued opposition to Democratic legislation. After questioning if Manchin was a “problem” for their administration, Charlamagne went so far as to ask, “I want to know who the real president of this country is — is it Joe Biden, or Joe Manchin?”

Harris quickly shot back, definitively answering that Biden was in charge and that she found Charlamagne’s line of questioning out of hand. “C’mon, Charlamagne,” she said with a disappointed tone. “No, no, no, no, it’s Joe Biden. And don’t start talking like a Republican, about asking whether or not he’s president. It’s Joe Biden, it’s Joe Biden and I’m vice president and my name is Kamala Harris.”

Charlamagne argued that Manchin, whose vote is essential in passing the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Act, is “stopping progress”. “He’s ruining democracy,” he added. “‘Cause what scares me is if the voting rights don’t pass, the Build Back Better doesn’t pass, or police reform doesn’t pass, I doubt you’re gonna get Black people to go out there and vote in 2022 and 2024.”

“I hear the frustration,” Harris replied. “But let’s not deny the impact that we’ve had, and agree also that there is a whole lot more work to be done. And it is not easy to do, but we will not give up. And I will not give up.”

With the tension between the pair dying down, Charlamagne interjected how he was impressed with Harris’ passion and push back. “I just want you to know, that Madame Vice President, that Kamala Harris, that’s the one I like,” Charlamagne explained.. “That’s the one that was putting the pressure on people in Senate hearings. That’s the one I’d like to see more often out here in these streets.”

The Jonas Brothers stopped by the White House for a special TikTok-esque team-up with President Joe Biden to encourage citizens to get vaccinated.

The Jonas Brothers came to the White House on Friday for a special visit as they teamed up with President Joe Biden for their hilarious take on a recent viral TikTok video where people are discussing president “Byron” and getting vaccinated. The funny video starts with Joe Jonas going “bing bong!” before Nick mouths, “Are you vaccinated?” Then, Kevin pops out of a box and says, “Yes sir!”

The clip then returns to Nick who asks, “Who’s the president, man? Who’s the president?” to which Joe replies, “Byron!” before Kevin, repeats, “Byron!”

The brothers then end the video with Joe asking, “What do you want to tell Joe Biden right now?” Kevin and Nick then do their take on the viral reply: “What’s up baby! Take me out to dinner.” After they finish imitating the original video, Kevin breaks character and asks, “Did we get it?” and the camera then pans to the president, who was “taping” the video, as he says, “We got it!”
What’s more, POTUS himself commented on Nick’s Instagram share of the video, writing, “It’s pronounced Biden guys — thanks for stopping by!”

The move is part of a concerted effort on behalf of the White House to get more people vaccinated as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage on — perhaps now more intensely due to the Omicron variant. Over the summer, the White House brought teen superstar Olivia Rodrigo to help encourage young people to get vaccinated. The “Drivers License” singer looked stunning in a pink-and-black-patterned tweed skirt and jacket and helped spread a very important message in the prevention of the coronavirus.

During her visit, Olivia spoke at a press conference about the importance of vaccines, also thanking the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki and reporters for helping her get the word out. “I’m beyond honored and humbled to be here today to help spread the message about the importance of youth vaccination. I’m in awe of the work President Biden and Dr. Fauci have done, and was happy to help lend my support to this important initiative,” she said. “It’s important to have conversations with friends and family members, encouraging all communities to get vaccinated and actually get to a vaccination site, which you can do more easily than ever before, given how many sites we have and how easy it is to find them at vaccines.gov.”

President Joe Biden revealed he and his wife Jill Biden make their own ‘eggs’ and ‘pour’ their ‘own cereal’ after waking up in the mornings, during his first appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.’

President Joe Biden, 79, wants the world to know he and First Lady Jill Biden, 70, are still humble beings despite living in the most famous house in America. The leader of the free world appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Dec. 10  and revealed that they asked the White House kitchen staff to let them cook their own breakfasts despite the fact that everything could be made for them.

Jill and I, we come from middle class backgrounds. We both are college graduates who worked like hell … anyway, the end result was that we’re not used to people waiting on us,” Joe explained to Jimmy in his first appearance on the show. “And so in the White House, there’s somebody to make your breakfast or someone to pack your clothes or someone to carry your bag.”

“We now have a deal. And they’re great,” he continued. “The guys who run the kitchen on the second floor, we don’t have them come in to do breakfast works, because there’s no need for them to have to do breakfast, whereas we can make our own eggs or pour a bowl of cereal.”

After Jimmy responded and asked if Joe makes his own eggs, he hilariously admitted Jill is the one who does it since his culinary skills are limited. “My daughter was being interviewed when she was about, I don’t know, 9, 10 years old. And [they] said, ‘Can your daddy cook for you?’ She said, ‘My daddy can’t do much, he can boil water and make “sketti.” But he can’t do much else,’” Joe lightheartedly recalled when further elaborating on his lack of cooking habits. “And guess what, she’s right.”

In addition to Joe talking about breakfast and cooking on the Tonight Show, Jill previously told PEOPLE how she and Joe had been settling into their new home, which they moved into after the inauguration in Jan. “The residence staff has been so great, trying to make it feel like home for us,” she shared with the outlet back in Feb. “We have family pictures all around, our books, some furniture we brought from home.”

Vice President Kamala Harris also attended the event with her husband, the Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff. Like Jill, Kamala also opted for red with a bow tie blouse underneath a black blazer and coat. Doug also opted for a wool layer over his black suit, staying practical in the 42 degree weather.

Once the couple returned to the White House after having Thanksgiving in Nantucket, Jill went into full-on holiday mode and debuted the White House Christmas decorations right after the weekend on Monday November 29. She tweeted out photos of the White House looking cozy for Christmas, complete with tinsel, trees, wreaths, and present-themed decor. She tweeted that she wanted the decor to inspire positive virtues for the yuletide season. “Inspired by the acts of kindness and experiences that lifted our spirits this year, decorated rooms in the White House reflect the Gifts from the Heart that unite us all: faith, family, friendship, the arts, learning, nature, gratitude, service, community, peace, and unity,” she wrote.

Of course, Christmas isn’t the only holiday happening during the winter season. The president also wished all who celebrate a joyous Hannukah on the first night of the “festival of lights,” as it started on November 28. “Jill and I send our warmest wishes to everyone celebrating Hanukkah in the United States and around the world. May this festival of lights bring blessings upon you and your loved ones for happiness and health. Happy Hanukkah!” he wrote in a tweet.

While Biden sent out Hannukah well-wishes, Harris and Emhoff made history by being the first family to hang mezuzah—a piece of parchment with Hebrew verses from the Torah—in the vice presidential residence. “One of my favorite memories was when our family visited and together we hung a mezuzah on the front door of the Vice President’s Residence,” the second gentleman wrote in a November 18 tweet.

In the video, she spoke about what causes she’s been dedicated to since her last gubernatorial run. “If our Georgia is going to move to its next and greatest chapter, we’re going to need leadership,” she said in a voiceover. “Leadership that knows how to do the job. Leadership that doesn’t take credit without also taking responsibility. Leadership that understands the true pain folks are feeling and has real plans. That’s the job of governor to fight for one Georgia. Our Georgia, and now, it’s time to get the job done.”

— Stacey Abrams (@staceyabrams) December 1, 2021

The activist previously ran in 2018, losing to the Republican nominee and current Governor Brian Kemp. After her loss, she was a chair for the voting organization Fair Fight 2020, and she campaigned for Democratic candidates, like President Joe Biden and now-Senators Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.

Original: She narrowly lost the 2018 gubernatorial race in Georgia, but Stacey Abrams still came out on top. The Georgia politician, lawyer, author and activist helped mobilize voters in unprecedented numbers during the 2020 election, and many believe her efforts helped turn Georgia blue. Here’s what you need to know about Abrams, one of the most significant voices in United States politics right now:

1. She mobilized voters across the country in 2020, particularly in Georgia

Abrams has worked tirelessly, especially over the last year, to elect Democrats in the United States — including President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Now, the 2020 Senate runoff race in Georgia looks like it will go to Democrats, with Rev. Raphael Warnock already elected, and Jon Ossoff in the lead. But Abrams work as an organizer spans a decade. A former Georgia House of Representatives minority leader, Abrams began strengthening the Democratic party’s base in the state.

She’s the leader of two voting rights groups. New Georgia Project, founded in 2014, focuses on people of color, 18 to 29 year olds, and unmarried women as a key voting base. She describes them as the “New American Majority.” Fair Fight, founded in 2018, “promotes fair elections in Georgia and around the country, encourage voter participation in elections, and educate voters about elections and their voting rights.”

2. She ran for Governor in Georgia and lost by less than 55,000 votes

Abrams’ loss to Georgia’s secretary of state, Brian Kemp, was one of the biggest upsets of the 2018 midterm elections. Abrams refused to concede victory after rampant allegations throughout the state of voter suppression; voters reported widespread discrepancies with their polling places, missing ballots, broken machine, and being told that they weren’t registered to vote at all. She later acknowledged that Kemp won, but challenged the results in court.

3. She delivered the 2019 State of the Union

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer explained to press that Democrats selected Abrams because,”She is just a great spokesperson. She’s an incredible leader. She has led the charge for voting rights, which is at the root of just about everything else.” President Donald Trump‘s State of the Union address was supposed to happen on January 29, but was postponed at House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi‘s request due to the 35-day government shutdown. The shutdown, which Trump spearheaded because he wanted $5.7 billion for his border wall, officially ended on January 25, 2019. He delivered the address on February 5 with Abrams responding afterward.

4. She would have been the first Black female governor in United States history

It was about more than being Georgia’s first Democratic governor in 15 years. Yes, a Black woman has never been a United States governor. Twenty-two states have never had a female governor at all. “I’m very aware that as an African-American woman, I will be doing something no one else has done,” Abrams told CNN at the time.

5. A distressing incident in 1991 inspired her to enter politics

In 1991, a young Abrams excitedly traveled to the Georgia Governor’s Mansion by bus with her parents so the high school valedictorian could be honored as one of the top students in the state. But a security guard refused to let them inside. “I distinctly remember him looking at the MARTA bus, looking at my parents and making a decision. The security guard refused to allow us inside. He said it was a private event,” Abrams recalled during an October 2017 forum.

While they were ultimately let inside after pointing out that her name was first on the guest list, the incident still disturbed the teenager. While she doesn’t know if it was because of her race, she said that the way she felt about it fueled her drive.“In front of the most powerful place in Georgia, telling me I don’t belong there, that’s resonated for me for the last 20 years. The reality is having a right to be places does not always mean that you’ll gain admission,” she said.

VP Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff made history by hanging a mezuzah, which is an important parchment in Judaism, on the doorway of their D.C. home ahead of the holiday season.

In January 2021, Kamala Harris made history when she became the first woman, as well as the first woman of color, to become vice president of the United States. Her husband Doug Emhoff is the country’s first second gentleman, and also the first Jewish person to live in the vice presidential residence at Number One Observatory Circle in Washington D.C. Ahead of Hanukkah, which starts on the evening on November 28, Kamala and Doug, both 57, made history once again by being the first couple to hang a mezuzah — a piece of parchment contained in a decorative case and inspired with Hebrew verses from the Torah — on the doorway of an executive home.

Rabbi Peter Berg of Hebrew Benevolent Congregation in Atlanta, Georgia, lent the mezuzah to Kamala and Doug, and he performed the private ceremony at the Naval Observatory in October, according to CNN. “It’s an extraordinary moment in United States history,” Peter told CNN. “And it was one of the great honors of my lifetime to be able to stand there with the second family as they placed that mezuzah on their home for the very first time.” Peter also said that when he “started talking” during the ceremony, “we all teared up because of the significance and the history.”

Doug marked the historic moment on Nov. 20 by sharing photos on Twitter of he and Kamala, as well Doug’s parents Michael and Barbara Emhoff, hanging the mezuzah up at their home. “For us, and for everyone, Thanksgiving is a time for reflection on the past year,” he said. “One of my favorite memories was when our family visited and together we hung a mezuzah on the front door of the Vice President’s Residence.”

The mezuzah ceremony is the latest instance that Kamala and Doug have honored Judaism since Inauguration Day. In March, Doug led the White House’s first-ever Passover event that was live-streamed for the whole country to watch, according to CNN. The virtual event also included pre-recorded remarks from President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden. “This year, as we dip our greens in salt water and pour out our ceremonial wine and eat our bitter herbs, let us commit, once again, to repairing the world,” Kamala said at the ceremony.

Clinton was hospitalized at facility in Irvine, California on October 14 for an infection. He was released a few days later and was seen leaving the hospital with his wife, former First Lady Hillary ClintonThe former first lady and 2016 presidential candidate did attend the funeral service. Shortly after the news of Powell’s death came out, Clinton tweeted a short remembrance of him. “Colin Powell was a courageous soldier, a skilled commander, a dedicated diplomat, and a good and decent man. My condolences to Alma, the entire Powell family, and all the people whose lives he touched through his service and example,” he wrote.

Besides Clinton, former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Donald Trump also skipped the funeral service. Carter turned 97-years-old in October.

Olivia Rodrigo recalled details of her ‘crazy’ trip to the White House over the summer — and revealed the ‘strange’ gift President Joe Biden gave her.

Olivia Rodrigo’s trip to the White House over the summer was far from sour. The 18-year-old pop sensation shared details of her “crazy” visit while on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday, Oct. 26, revealing that President Joe Biden had gifted her some items during her visit in July. Among them? A shoehorn with the presidential emblem on it.

The “Deja Vu” singer paid a visit to the president and Dr. Anthony Fauci on July 14 to help encourage young people to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Olivia told host Jimmy Kimmel that it was an “honor” to receive an invitation and help champion a cause she cares about. “Just so crazy,” she said of the visit. “It was such an honor to go and especially support such an important cause that I feel passionately about. That was amazing.”

The star revealed that she was able to keep the Ray-Ban sunglasses she wore during that infamous photo op she had with President Biden. “He gave them to me actually,” she said of the sunglasses. “He gave me a few gifts. He gave me those, he gave me some M&Ms, and he gave me a shoehorn, which was strange. It had the presidential emblem on it. I’m serious. It’s in my house.”

Elsewhere, Olivia spoke of her fear of accidentally breaking the priceless artifacts at the White House. “The White House is just the coolest place,” she told Jimmy. “I was so nervous to go but I walked in there and there’s like, all these plates that George Washington used to eat his dinner on and all of this crazy stuff,” she said. “And I was scared I was gonna sneeze and break such a priceless artifact. It was crazy but I walked out and didn’t break anything.”

During her visit, Olivia wore a memorable pink two-piece skirt and blazer set from Chanel, evoking the likes of Jackie Kennedy and Cher Horowitz. The singer filmed videos to promote vaccines during her visit, but not before addressing press at a briefing and speaking on why vaccines are good 4 u. “I am beyond honored and humbled to be here today to help spread the message about the importance of youth vaccination,” she said from the briefing room.

“I’m in awe of the work President Biden and Dr. Fauci have done and was happy to help lend my support to this important initiative,” she continued. “It’s important to have conversations with friends and family members encouraging all communities to get vaccinated, and actually get to a vaccination site, which you can do more easily than ever before, given how many sites we have and how easy it is to find them at vaccines.gov.”

Meghan McCain called Katie Couric a ‘hypocritical’ journalist in a shocking column she wrote on Oct. 15. Find out how the entire feud unfolded and get details on their rocky history here.

Meghan McCain, 37, didn’t hold back about her feelings on Katie Couric, 64, in a column for Daily Mail, which was published on Oct. 15, and it’s bringing their headline-making feud to the forefront of everyone’s minds. The former co-host of The View fearlessly called the broadcast legend “a hypocrite” and criticized her journalism when Katie admitted to leaving out certain comments from the late Ruth Bader Ginsberg after a 2016 interview she had with her. Although she claimed she took out some of her words as a way to “protect” her, Meghan wasn’t having it and even seemingly called Katie’s behavior “toxic.”

Find out the details of the feud, how it unfolded, and past issues they’ve had below.

Before Their Latest Feud, Meghan Called Out Katie In Jan. 2021.

The Republican called Katie’s comments “out of bounds” after she spoke to Bill Maher over how she feels people should view former President Donald Trump‘s supporters. “I also think some of them are believing the garbage that they are being fed 24/7 on the internet, by their constituents, and they bought into this big lie,” Katie said. “And the question is how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump.”

Meghan, who has been known to also criticize Trump, responded to Katie’s words by saying she thought that after Joe Biden‘s presidential win in Nov. 2020, Democrats would be calling for unity. “Instead we’re hearing a lot of language from people like Katie Couric talking about Republicans like me need to be deprogramed, that we’re brainwashed — that 74 million Americans are basically irredeemable people, that we don’t need to communicate with or in any way have anything to do with,” she said shortly after Katie’s interview. “I think it’s horribly dangerous for the country and I also think it’s horribly dangerous for Democrats. … Honestly, they can go to hell because I don’t need to be deprogrammed.”

Their Latest Feud All Started With Katie’s Memoir.

Katie’s new book, Going There, which has a release date of Oct. 26, 2021, reveals intimate details about her life and the struggles she went through, such as a battle with bulimia as a teen, but it also includes her opinions and actions as a journalist, which is what Meghan had a problem with. She admitted to leaving a portion of her interview with Ruth out because she criticized NFL players like Colin Kaepernick for kneeling in protest during the national anthem during football games.

Katie explained that the former Supreme Court Justice described the players kneeling as having “contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.” She went on to claim that a public affairs official for the Supreme Court asked her to remove the comments about the NFL players the next day because they said she had “misspoken.”

Katie Admitted Removing Ruth’s Comments Wasn’t An Easy Decision.

In the book, Katie also says she “lost a lot of sleep” while thinking about how to proceed with the request to remove the comments. She was also receiving conflicting opinions about whether or not to go along with it, but she ultimately decided to make the cut.

After Advanced Copies Of Katie’s Book Were Sent Out, Meghan Wrote The Column That Called Her Out.

Meghan quit The View and teamed up with the Daily Mail to work as a columnist in Sept. 2021. She released a statement that said she was excited about the job because it would allow her to share her opinions without the fear of censorship and in her column about Katie, that’s exactly what she did. It was released on Oct. 15, 2021 and talked about Katie’s practices as a journalist as well as toxicity in the workplace.

“How can there be any expectation of trust between anyone with an opinion to the right of Ruth Bader Ginsburg if interviewers and their networks believe editing out commentary they believe would hurt a progressive icon is an ethical thing to do?” Meghan questioned in the column, before adding, “…Katie Couric would have afforded no conservative woman any such mercy.”

She went on to say that “the generations before mine have created, fostered and enabled a long line of toxic behavior towards the generations of women coming up behind them,” before calling Katie’s memoir, “nothing short of a kamikaze mission to destroy what is left of the carcass of her career.”

Meghan also said she “hated” Katie’s book during her Oct. 20, 2021 appearance on Watch What Happens Live, which can be seen above.

Meghan Admitted She Hasn’t Liked Katie Since Her 2008 Interview With Sarah Palin.

Katie’s infamous interview with former Alaska Governor and then-vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in 2008, received a lot of criticism, and Meghan admitted it was that moment that caused her not to like the former Today anchor. “I don’t like Katie Couric, I haven’t liked Katie Couric since she interviewed Sarah Palin,” Meghan wrote before describing the interview as “a trainwreck” in which Sarah performed poorly.

“But she was being interviewed by an infamous mean girl who has now admitted to leaving out a ‘damaging’ part of an interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg where the former Supreme Court justice and left-wing icon admits to not liking those who kneel before rather than salute our American flag,” she continued.

Meghan brought up both interviews, with Sarah and Ruth, to point out that she didn’t trust Katie for not tweaking her final interviews to make liberals look good and conservatives look bad. “If we now know for a fact that if Katie Couric edited her interviews to make famous liberals look good, one can only imagine and speculate about what she might possibly have done to make conservatives look bad,” she explained before using that as an example of why people shouldn’t trust media. “How many other interviews did she rig or manipulate during her long, storied career? And why did her network allow it to air in such a fashion?”

Katie Hasn’t Responded To Meghan.

As of Oct. 24, 2021, Katie hadn’t responded to Meghan’s comments about her memoir, but since she’s often in the spotlight and dishing details during her book tour and other appearances, we’d suspect the topic could come up sometime in the future.

Jason Sudeikis made his first ‘SNL’ appearance in years! The actor was a long-running cast member on the series before departing in 2013.

Jason Sudeikis, 45, is back! The actor appeared on  Saturday Night Live for his first-ever hosting gig on Saturday, Oct. 23 — and reprised his role as Joe Biden! New comer James Austin Johnson opened with his new take on the current president in an Oval Office set. Seemingly exhausted, he pondered — what happened to his old self?

In come Jason’s Biden, who he hasn’t portrayed since 2013! “I’m you! I’m you from 8 years ago. The ghost from Biden’s past — boo!” Jason hilariously quipped, visibly casual in a bomber jacket and baseball hat (Johnson’s Biden, however, was in a full suit and tie).

“Yeah, partner, where I’m from — we’re still VP. Easiest job in the world. We’re like America’s wacky neighbor…we pop in with ice cream, shake a few hands, rub a few shoulders,” Jason’s Biden explained to his future self, played by James’ version, who tried to fill his past self in on the last eight years (including Donald Trump).

“The last president ruined everything! Ordering McDonald’s to the White House, hanging out with strippers,” he began, as Jason’s Biden quipped the “only mansion I care about is the Playboy Mansion — that’s classic 2K-13 Biden!”

SNL cast member Alex Moffatt — who played Biden once in 2013 — also joined the fun. “Who the hell are you?” Jason’s Biden asked. “I’m Joe Biden?” Alex’s Biden replied to a confused Jason and James were clearly confused. “From When?” Jason’s Biden then inquired. “March 2021?” Alex replied, as the two dismissed him.

“I should just mosey back on 2013, I just got tickets to a concert,” Jason suggested, before giving James some advice. “We may be from different eras — at the end of the day, we’re both Joe-freaking-Biden.”

Jason’s career has exploded since his long-running tenure at SNL, which began as a writer before becoming a cast member in 2005 (he left in 2013 after a decade). Most recently, the actor has starred in arguably the biggest hit on Apple TV+, Ted Lasso. The Fairfax, Virginia native plays the title character in the series, which follows the story an American college football coach who led the Wichita State Shockers to a Division II NCAA championship.

The popular show even led to Jason’s first-ever Emmy in Sept. 2021, where SNL showrunner Lorne Michaels teased the former cast member’s return. “Jason Sudeikis will be coming back soon,” the Canadian-born producer said to press, declining to offer more details. Jason was later confirmed alongside Owen Wilson, Kim Kardashian and Rami Malek as one of the first four hosts to kick off season 47.
