The Clinton camp surely fired that staffer after this kid botched the softball question he was supposed to lob up for Hillary.

That's Iowa Republican State Representative Ross Paustian, enjoying what he claims was a "gag gift" while totally paying attention to his political duties.

Australia's prime minister,Malcolm Turnbull, just came up with a new campaign premise that 'Veep' fans will be a little too familiar with. He talks about keeping continuity... but also changing, something that Julia Louise-Dreyfus's character on 'Veep' also promised. 

You can see him explain it right here:



Actors and creators involved on the show, 'Veep', commented on how surprised they were that this turned into a real political talking point.  Maybe they were too good at parodying politics?

As Inauguration Day looms heavy on the horizon (this Friday), and Trump's Twitter game only seems to ramp up in its unpresidented ridiculousness, it's only right that we have someone like the Jimmy Kimmel take to the streets to interview the citizenry, and hold a microscope up over something remotely similar to a Bubonic Plague of Ignorance. Oh a quick by the way here: this madness happened before:



Yes, in case anyone out there is watching this video wondering to themselves what the hell the big deal is with these answers...it's this: they are the same damn thing. The Affordable Care Act, and Obamacare = The same. Could we at least have had one person answer correctly. Nah dawg, we gotta stir the pot of stress-ridden hysteria on a regular basis.

Meet Julie Bishop, Minister for Foreign Affairs and human emoji.

During an interview with Bishop on the Today show in Australia this week, host Karl Stefanovic brought up news that Governor-General Peter Cosgrove’s staff wanted a $2000 Thermomix for their kitchen.

He then asked Bishop if she knew what a Thermomix was. (It’s an expensive device that both heats and mixes food at the same time.)

“I’m going to answer in emoji,” she said, going on to make a weird face.

Well played. But which emoji was she impersonating?

Eric Trump Sends Out Electoral Map of Men-Only Election Hinting 'Momentum Is on Their Side' and Receives Prompt Mocking from the Internet

If only Nate Silver could've known that his electoral map tweets would inspire the latest hilarious meme movement. Silver was attempting to illustrate how the election would turn out if only men, or only women turned out to vote based on a polls-only forecast. The blue map showed Hillary winning big time, while the red shows Trump with the easy victory. Shortly after all this, Eric Trump pushed the men-only electoral map as a 'hint' momentum was on their side. Let the hilarity ensue.
