Mr. President, why don’t you stop talking for a while? That’s MSNBC’s message to No. 45, who posted some nasty things on Twitter Thursday about “Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. “It’s a sad day for America when the president spends his time bullying, lying and spewing petty personal attacks instead of doing his job,” an MSNBC spokesperson told TheWrap.

The Rock Battles Hippos in ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ Trailer (Video)

42 minutes ago

Sony Pictures dropped the first trailer for “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” on Thursday, and apart from CGI rampaging animals, this reboot looks nothing like the original 1995 hit family adventure that starred the late Robin Williams. Joe Johnston’s original was about a board game that opened a portal to an alternate, wild universe. The redo swaps that board game for a classic, ’90s-era video game console that transports a group of misbehaving teens into the game itself where they take on alter-ego avatars played by Dwayne Johnson, Kevin HartJack Black and Karen Gillan. In Johnston’s film, no actor swapping occurred. »

Trump Goes Personal, Accuses ‘Morning Joe’ Host Mika Brzezinski of ‘Bleeding Badly From a Face-Lift’

1 hour ago

President Donald Trump took his attack on mainstream media personalities to a shockingly ad hominem place on Thursday, sending out a pair of tweets about MSNBC morning hosts “Psycho” Joe Scarborough and “low I.Q. Crazy” Mika Brzezinksi. “She was bleeding badly from a face-lift,” he wrote of an encounter with Brzezinski he claims he had in Florida weeks before his inauguration. Trump also slammed the pair for what he described as their “poorly rated” show “Morning Joe,” which he said he no longer watches after years of being a loyal viewer.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Review: Marvel-Fueled Reboot Has a Good Sense of Spidey

1 hour ago

Spider-Man’s powers are strength, heightened senses, web-shooting, wall-climbing, and, apparently, reincarnation. After three successful Raimi-Maguire movies that aren’t as old as you think, and two Webb-Garfield installments that were shiny, glitzy placeholders, the Marvel Universe has, like a thirsty arachnid, pulled one of the brand’s oldest, beloved trademarks back into the interconnected fold with “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” a sixth movie that really wants to be your first and favorite. To that end, it’s packaged like a fast-food menu of the things you love from Marvel movies: suit gags, winking humor, colorful showdowns, an identity crisis, two post-credit scenes (one being the. »

What Happens if the Media Defies White House Camera Ban?

13 hours ago

CNN host Don Lemon suggested this week that the White House press corps defy the White House camera ban, and turn on their cameras during the daily briefings. Reporters could certainly do that, but the White House would be within its rights to kick them out because reporters probably don’t have a First Amendment right to film or even attend the briefings, experts said. “Having a seat at a White House briefing is a privilege, not a right,” Lucy Dalglish, dean of the University of Maryland journalism school, told TheWrap.
