Sacha Baron Cohen may be reviving his long-standing feud with Donald Trump. On the 4th of July (because when else?) Cohen teased a new project that seems to take a dig at the president in a Twitter video titled “A Message from Donald J. Trump.”

Michael Moore has made quite the controversial career for himself as a liberal documentary filmmaker who focuses on the hot topics plaguing our society and making headlines. And since the man doing both of those things everyday is none other than President Donald Trump, it should come as no surprise that Moore has a new documentary focusing on the reality TV host turned leader of the free world.
Michael Moore’s new documentary is called Fahrenheit 11/9, taking a cue from the filmmaker’s previous George W. Bush skewering title Fahrenheit 9/11. In this case, the numbers in the title refer to the night that Donald Trump was elected President of the United States of America. But what specifically will the documentary focus on? Michael Moore discusses below. Read More »
The HBO adaptation of Fire and Fury, Michael Wolff‘s best-selling book about the utter chaos and ineptitude inherent within the Trump White House, has found its director. Jay Roach, who helmed HBO’s political drama Game Change, has been tasked with turning Wolff’s book into a TV series.

Since every single day is a waking nightmare thanks to the actions of Donald Trump and his bumbling administration, some good old fashioned satire is exactly what we need to help us get through the next three years.
Showtime has teamed with Stephen Colbert to deliver an animated series called Our Cartoon President, providing us with a comedic take on the Donald Trump presidency. Since the administration itself is already laughable, mocking them satirically has proven to be a bit of a challenge (as evidenced by Saturday Night Live‘s hit or miss sketches on the matter), but this show looks to be wacky enough to bring some levity to the situation in Washington D.C.
And you can watch the pilot episode for free right now, even if you don’t subscribe to Showtime. Read More »

In a story that can only be published in the Year of Our Lord 2017, Donald Trump reportedly threatened to sue the producers of Sharknado 3 for casting Mark Cuban as their president instead of him. Yeah, you read that right.
It makes me wonder that if Trump had achieved his dream and been cast as president in SyFy’s schlocky disaster series, would that have put his presidential ambitions to rest? Is this his art school? Or would we just have gotten Mark Cuban running in 2016 instead? Who knows. But at least we were saved from one more Trump movie cameo in the process.

Back in the spring, while Saturday Night Live was still in the middle of its 42nd season, Alec Baldwin indicated that he might not keep playing Donald Trump much longer on the late night sketch series. Though his portrayal of the unqualified President of the United States of America resulted in some of the most consistently high ratings SNL had received in recent years, Baldwin said:
“I think the maliciousness of this White House has people very worried, which is why I might not do it much longer, by the way, that whole impersonation. I don’t know how much more people can take it.”
Because the reality of any given situation at the White House can be too hard to swallow and thus difficult to effectively parody, the actor was right to question whether it was something he could viably keep doing. But it turns out he either feels a responsibility to keep pissing off reality-show-host-in-chief, or he’s getting paid handsomely to keep playing the role, because we’ll keep seeing Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live this fall.

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, and opinionated about something that makes us very happy…or fills us with indescribable rage. In this edition: how should Saturday Night Live deal with Donald Trump if Alex Baldwin leaves the part?)
Saturday Night Live has garnered plenty of attention lately thanks to their skewering of Donald Trump and his incompetent administration in the White House. During the campaign season last year, when it was almost inconceivable that the former reality TV show host could win the presidency, SNL brought in Alec Baldwin to play the president, an inspired piece of stunt casting. Surely Lorne Michaels wasn’t anticipating that they would have to bring back Alec Baldwin once Trump actually won, but here we are. However, that might not last much longer.
In a recent interview, Alec Baldwin made an off the cuff remark indicating that he might not be playing Donald Trump for Saturday Night Live much longer. Let’s talk about what that could mean for the show. Read More »
