Sarah Silverman got laughs when she told Bernie or Bust supporters that they were "being ridiculous" at the Democratic National Convention, but there was one joke that never made it on stage.
She tells the New York Times, "At the very beginning, when Al said, 'I'm Al Franken, and this past year I've been hashtag-I'm With Her' … I was going to say, 'And I'm Sarah Silverman, and this past year I've been with the possibly agnostic Jew' but they were like, no. And they are right but I get so indignant. At least I'm aware, and awareness brings change, so maybe I'll be less obnoxious."
Remember when everyone was doing the "Ice Bucket Challenge" in 2014? It was considered a breakthrough in fundraising, and now the money raised has lead to a breakthrough in the fight against ALS.
One million dollars raised from the challenge was given to Project MinE. The U.S. division of the project was able to use the money to identify a gene, NEK1, that is linked to ALS. That could help provide clues to possibly treat the disease! That's pretty freakin' awesome. And now I feel bad for getting sick of seeing it on social media after a while.
I'm sure you're waiting to see who the Kardashians endorse for President right? Sounds like Khloe definitely won't be voting for Donald Trump.
She was on Chelsea Handler's Netflix show this week and was asked about being on Celebrity Apprentice.
"It wasn't for me," she said. "My mom made me do it, of course, so I did it and hated every minute of it. I was stressing myself out and then dealing with him and being fired…I wanted to say '**** you, I don't want to do this!"
Chelsea asked Khloe if she though her mom Kris Jenner believed that her former boss Donald would be a good president. "I don't think so, no," she said, and added, "I don't think he would make a good president."
Elizabeth Banks, Mandy Moore, and numerous other celebrities sang an acapella cover of Rachel Platten's "Fight Song." No matter your politics, this is pretty impressive. Plus there's a mini-rap breakdown at the 2:15 mark:
I'm sure there were faces you didn't know, but how many did you recognize? -Mike Draup
"Apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time." Jimmy Kimmel would look into the camera and close his show the same way every night. The joke was about his lack of A-list celebrity guests. That was then, this is now.
This week Jimmy and Matt sat down for some couples therapy to work through their issues...
It's a revelation that makes you go - huh? From the WikiLeaks release of hacked DNC emails: Ariana Grande lost out on a White House gig thanks to her doughnut-licking incident.
Last summer she was caught on tape licking doughnuts at a doughnut shop saying she hated America. When she was suggested for a White House gig, the vetting committee denied it based on her doughnut-licking.
All was eventually forgiven because she was asked to perform at the DNC this week but declined due to scheduling conflicts.
