In case you haven’t seen President Obama’s emotional remarks about the Newtown school shooting.

If you’re going to spend time on TV, Mr. President — and Mr. Romney — do us all a favor and skip Whoopi and The Daily Show and Jay and Dave and the Jimmys and all the celebrity news anchors on the networks. Just speak to us directly, or engage in debates that are real debates which will allow for considered thought and direct questioning of your opponent’s positions.

Ken Tucker thinks presidents (and candidates) should stop appearing on entertainment shows. Do you agree with his argument?

Bristol Palin’s argument against this perceived hypocrisy concludes: “It would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee,” perhaps accidentally referencing a show that spent most of its first season developing a plotline about an unwed teenage mother who expresses herself by dancing to beloved pop standards in ridiculous costumes.

Darren Franich is killing it today.

A lot of people loved watching President Obama slow-jam the news with Jimmy Fallon Tuesday — but not Jon Stewart. Here’s what he had to say about the segment on last night’s Daily Show: “Mr. President, you’re the president. You don’t have to do this s— anymore.”

Do you agree with Stewart? Or were you tickled by Obama’s slow-jamming — even if it made the POTUS look a little less presidential?

Obama was on Jimmy Fallon last night! So, how’d he do?

Um. So this is the anti-Obama painting Sean Hannity paid six figures for. (That paper the president is burning? Oh, you know, just the Constitution.) It’s called “One Nation Under Socialism.”

"I’m a very unconventional artist," McNaughton told EW. "Those in art circles in New York and other in-the-know people really do not like my paintings. They go to great lengths to criticize them, but I think that 100 years from now when people look back on our time in history, some of these paintings are going to resurface as how the right felt about what was happening."

If it was me, I would resign.

President Obama tells Ann Curry how he feels about Anthony Weiner.

“When you get to the point where, because of various personal distractions, you can’t serve as effectively as you need to, at the time when people are worrying about jobs, and their mortgages, and paying the bills — then you should probably step back,’’ Obama continued.

To me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s causing the other forms of terrorism. You know the root cause of terrorists is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.

Uh… okay, Lupe Fiasco.

We should probably talk about this guy.

To me, the message is clear: President Obama is so scared of me and so desperate for attention that he felt the need to hunt down and kill Osama bin Laden right in the middle of my show. Classic Obama move.

[Jimmy Fallon as] Donald Trump. Hee!
