    Just got around to watching Monday’s episode of Outnumbered.

    All I can say is hallelujah. It was four to one (Andrea) panelists who don’t support Trump.

    I guess I need to stop my whining on Twitter — at least temporarily.

    • Cecelia

      It is a great day, indeed…

    • KirkG

      I had stopped watching for the same reason (Andrea’s making excuses for Trump)

  • Re: “Video: Shep strikes back at NBC, announces Foxified winter storm names”: And Simpsonized. I loved it.

  • Larry Kelly

    I’m of the old school where “homophobic” means “afraid of homosexuals”. Q

    • Cecelia

      That’s a ridiculous article and let’s hope that it’s sheer liberal fantasy feel-goodism to say that Pres. Obama chose SC Justices like someone might chose a therapist.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        Freud would diagnose Obama as ,,eine kranke Welpen” (one sick puppy).

  • sparty

    Such wonderful news about Ainsley. It shows you can work your way up from the overnight shift into one of the prime jobs on cable TV. Ainsley will be terrific.

    • KirkG

      I am also very happy for Ainsley. Does anyone know when she will be back from maternity leave?

      • Joe Concha

        Certainly earned it.

        • Hey, Happy Birthday you Mediaite writer you.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            And may you have many more.

          • Joe Concha

            32 years young, according to Facebook.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            You half my age.

          • Michael T

            Facebook?

            I’m still waiting for a Wikipedia page so the world can recognize you as the fine athlete you are — Beer-Pong 2x champ!

            It’s such as shame this is not more widely known.

        • Michael T

          I was kinda rooting for Chicago Bears fan and Illinois native Heather Nauert.

          But my bias is showing. My mom’s from Illinois and I love a woman who can talk NFL football. 😊

          I’m sure Ainsley will do just fine.

          Oh BTW, Happy Birthday!

      • Feb 29 is her debut on F&F. Possibly she’ll show up before that on other shows to promote the debut.

        • Cecelia

          Where does that leave Anna Koolman?

          • Mitch Alan

            She is updating her resume right now.

          • I assume she will keep weekends. At least I hope so. I was hoping she would get the weekday slot but the odds were against her.

          • Cecelia

            Well, she’s very athletic and better for all that stuff they do outdoors on F&F weekends.

  • sky303

    Woo congrats to Ainsley moving on up…

  • sky303

    MSNBC trump hall : the only problem I have with the article is calling Joe a Poodle, that’s not nice to poodles

  • Cecelia

    I agree with the way Chris Hayes framed his apology in which he does not apologize for rhe conclusion he drew from Pres. Clinton’s remarks, but for not airing them entirely so listeners have all the info in reaching their own pov.

    I agree that Clinton went off message, and agree too with Hayes’ suggestion that Clinton was doing Pres. Obama no favors is such a back-handed, damning with faint praise compliment/defense.

    Bill Clinton is a bit of a mixed bag when comes to helping his wife, and you get the feeling that there’s a boatload of passive aggressiveness directed in several directions, including his best and dearest…

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      He might’ve been beaned by her with lamps, ashtrays and so forth once too often.

  • Mitch Alan

    Darn, I was hoping that Omarosa would get the morning F&F gig. She is incredible.

    • Cecelia

      That would be a ball. She’d make Mika look like a paragon of self-restraint.
