Billy Bush has been taking time away from the spotlight ever since an audio recording of him and Donald Trump engaging in “locker room talk” — or essentially boasting about sexually assaulting women — leaked online during the 2016 presidential election. Now that Trump is heading to the White House, does that mean Bush will resume his work in television?

Barry hasn’t embraced his future — he hasn’t even embraced his own name. The flight lands. He gets on the subway. He gets lost in … read more

Now we’re … read more

President Barack Obama is the antithesis of a lame duck!
On Wednesday, the outgoing POTUS finalized a regulation which would protect federal funding for women’s health care and organizations like Planned Parenthood. The big move comes about a month before Donald Trump and his anti-Planned Parenthood administration will take office.
