Donald Trump Is Dr. Evil On Latest Cover Of New York Daily News

In the past two years, the New York Daily News has portrayed President Donald Trump as nearly every antagonist possible. He has been transformed into the Antichrist, a zombie clown, a pervert, a walking “dead clown,” a “treasonous” Vladimir Putin sympathizer and a regular old clown

So it’s only fitting that the tabloid’s Tuesday cover page recast Trump as the bald-headed epitome of evil from the “Austin Powers” film series.

Dr. Evil, that is.

The latest cover refers to Trump’s attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which was enacted during Barack Obama’s tenure as president.

“President Trump, with his Mini-Mes in Congress, has bald-faced scheme to pass Trumpcare at expense of city taxpayers,” text on the cover reads.

Trump’s plot “to buy votes for troubled health care plan” ― as the tabloid describes it ― was a nod to the changes GOP leaders made on Monday to the Trump-backed American Health Care Act in hopes of obtaining votes from Republicans in upstate New York.

According to The New York Times, the changes to the repeal plan would only affect the state of New York, saving $2.3 billion for local governments upstate, and potentially screwing over New York City.

Struggling Comedian Mike Huckabee Makes Jokes On Twitter, It Doesn’t Go Well

Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas Gov. (R) and two-time GOP presidential candidate, is not good at Twitter. In fact, “not good” is an understatement. He is terrible at it — especially when he’s trying to be funny.

For instance, when CNN reported that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer had to hold back tears due to the mean-spirited nature of President Donald Trump’s executive order that banned Syrian refugees and nationals from several Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S., Huckabee tweeted this transphobic gem:

And when Hillary Clinton said half of Trump’s supporters belong in a “basket of deplorables” during the 2016 presidential campaign, Huckabee busted out this sweet rhyme:

And on Tuesday, while following the hearing for Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, Huckabee decided to tweet a few zingers aimed at those who were questioning the judge:

Then he tweeted this:

And. Twitter. Could. Not. Take. It. Anymore.

People began to roast Huckabee for being hilariously unfunny, and their responses are actually funny:

This Girl Bothering Her Mom In The Bathroom Sums Up Life With A Toddler

Parents who can’t get a moment to themselves even in the bathroom, this video is for you.

Pediatric nurse and mom of two Leah Hazley captured her daughter, Noelle, on video casually chatting with her ― while she was in the bathroom. Hazley told The Huffington Post she recorded the video a couple weeks before Noelle’s third birthday in January. In it, Noelle talks with her mom and then leaves her to finally have some peace and quiet in the bathroom only to open the door seconds later. Their conversation ranges from Noelle telling her mom she has “brown skin” to reminding her that she loves her.

Hazley, who works part time as a pediatric nurse at the Children’s Hospital of Colorado and is also a blogger, said this happens almost daily and that Noelle also does this to her dad when he’s home alone with the kids. The toddler is known to have “full-on conversations” with her parents in the bathroom.

“I usually don’t allow her to be alone with her sister for very long for fear that an accident may happen,” Hazley said. “Plus it’s easier than hearing her yell and scream if I decide to close and lock the door. It’s much more peaceful this way.”

According to her mom, Noelle is a “spunky girl” who loves singing and dancing and has no problem chatting with adults.

“She is Disney-obsessed and can talk adults under a table,” she said. “She is always introducing herself to people and is the subject of a lot of my blog.”

Hazley submitted the funny video to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” for its “Ellen, Take Me Away” contest. The host asked moms to send videos that show how much they need a break and will allow the winner to sit in her “kids-free skybox.” The footage of Noelle was featured on the show, but Hazley hasn’t heard if she’s won yet. 

The video has also racked up more than 14 million views on the NTD Television Facebook page as of Tuesday afternoon.

In what might be the funniest twist about the video, Hazley has received many messages from people who offered compliments about the tile in the bathroom and wanted to know more about the decor.

Hazley described the response to the video as “incredible” and knows that so many parents “can relate” to her daughter’s antics.

Reese Witherspoon Shows What Happens When You Give Your Kid A Hard-To-Spell Name

One of the toughest challenges a preschooler can face is learning to spell his or her name, especially if that name is one adults can’t even get right. 

Reese Witherspoon shared a photo of her youngest child, 4-year-old Tennessee James, Tuesday on Instagram. In the snapshot, little Tennessee holds up a piece of paper with some green scribbles on it. Apparently, he was attempting to write his name. 

Things didn’t exactly work out, but Witherspoon gets the struggle. 

When your name is TENNESSEE, it's a bit tricky to learn how to spell it … #PreSchoolProblems

A post shared by Reese Witherspoon (@reesewitherspoon) on

While the “Big Little Lies” star hasn’t said much publicly about the meaning behind her son’s name (aside from joking that it’s “redneck”), she spent years of her childhood in Nashville, so that probably provided some inspiration.

People Are Really Conflicted About This Nude Claymation Video

Hi, stranger: Prepare to be deeply disturbed, but somehow also oddly soothed. 

Artist Kirsten Lepore uploaded the claymation video “Hi Stranger” (above) to YouTube Monday and reactions have been interesting to say the least.

At first glance, the clip, which features a nude, dead-eyed clay man with a prominent butt uttering sweet-but-creepy nothings to the viewer, is just plain unsettling.

But some viewers, it seems, started to have more complicated feelings.

Feelings of being comforted, of feeling like maybe everything was OK.

Not that the initial feelings of discomfort ever go away.

Bye, stranger. And please, let us know how you feel.

Playful Dog Hilariously Joins World Cup Ski Race

Go dog, go!

Sunday’s World Cup 15-kilometer cross-country ski pursuit in Quebec City resulted in an exciting photo finish. But the most entertaining part of the race might have been when a rambunctious pup chased the leaders.

It happened near the end of the third lap, the Montreal Gazette reported.

“It happens in cycling races, but I’ve never seen it in skiing,” second-place finisher Alex Harvey of Canada said. “It just makes the story even better because luckily no one crashed or got hurt.”

Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo of Norway narrowly defeated Harvey but we all know who the real winner was.

A Bunch Of A-List Celebs Are Putting On A Facebook Telethon For The ACLU

Two months after Donald Trump’s inauguration, fears that the president’s administration will try to curtail U.S. civil rights has led some of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities to do what they can to fight back. 

A large number of A-list stars have signed up to raise money for the American Civil Liberties Union next Friday as part of a modern-day telethon that will be streamed live on Facebook. 

Participating celebrities include Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Tom Hanks, Padma Lakshmi, Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler, among many others.

The event, which is being called Stand for Rights: A Benefit for the ACLU, begins on Friday, March 31, at 7 p.m. ET and will stream live on the Facebook pages of The Huffington Post and Funny Or Die, which will also premiere new videos throughout the event. The stream will additionally be available on the Stand for Rights Facebook page. 

Net proceed will benefit the ACLU. 

“Our work in the courts is essential right now to hold off the worst of the abuses,” ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero said in a statement. “But it is also the collective will and tireless actions of ‘we the people’ that serve as a bulwark against unconstitutional and wrong-headed policies and executive orders. By supporting our work through this telethon, we can fight even harder to defend the rights guaranteed by our Constitution.”

The ACLU has already received millions more in online donations in 2017 than it has in a normal full year, even pulling in $24 million over a single weekend in January. But something tells us they’ll need all the money they can get in the coming years. 

Stand for Rights is being put on by Friend of a Friend Productions in partnership with The Huffington Post, Funny Or Die and Maggie Vision.
