donald trump impersonator hires bodyguards

What do you do when the reality-TV game show host you impersonate wins the presidency? The same thing that happens when you win the presidency, you hire the Secret Service… sort of.

John Di Domenico, who spent the last 12 years impersonating Donald Trump, says that now that the president-elect has inspired so much rage and ire from some American citizens, he fears for his safety. So Di Domenico did what any other sane, rational Trump impersonator would do: He hired bodyguards.

Remember kids: Impersonating Donald Trump can have some unintended consequences, like being mistaken for Donald Trump.

However, even though he’s booked through the end of the year, Di Domenico’s appearances, which range from $3,500 to $10,000, have started to drop off. Apparently, now that Trump’s in the White House, people aren’t so eager to see him.

“It was really off the charts on the run up but now that he’s elected it’s like, okay, he’s not going anywhere,” Di Domenico told the New York Post. “There was this frenzy to book me, especially these last few months. A lot people thought he wasn’t going to become president.”

Will Trump promise to bring those jobs back, too? Only time will tell.

kanye west says he supports trump crowd boos kanye

In one of the strangest moments of the strangest year ever, Kanye West decided to tell a crowd of people that he didn’t vote, but if he had, it would’ve been for Trump. Kanye West also announced that he’s running for president, because, hey, if that guy can pull it off than, jeez, who’s to say Kanye can’t.

The consummate showman, West went on to tell his audience, “To black people, stop focusing on racism. We live in a racist country —that is a fact.” Classic rule in showbiz: When you’re losing your audience, double down on the thing they don’t like.

That’s when things started to get even crazier, and people started throwing things at Kanye, presumably tomatoes, like in a 1930s Popeye cartoon because that’s just more fun.

At this point, it definitely felt like even Kanye recognized that he was losing them — honestly, it was probably all the objects being hurled in his general direction that clued him in — so he went on to make more confusing statements.

All in all, I think people got what they paid for, which is a great time, listening to some great music.

This isn't the first time Kanye hasn't recieved some real-time feedback. Last year, the crowd at a Golden State Warriors booed the rapper for just being at the game. They did, however, show some love for George Lopez, so again, everything is the weirdest always.

The challenge is barely funny. It’s more just a thing to look at, nod your head, and say, “Yeah, that sounds about right.”

president donald trump name removed from his building

President-elect Trump loves his name. Who wouldn’t? It’s a name. It’s a verb. It’s one syllable. It looks great in front of a bad steak. But on a building, ehhhhhhh, some aren’t so sure.

This afternoon, workers began removing the name “Trump” from one of three luxury apartment buildings, which, look, is the biggest, most luxurious apartment building, but maybe bring up a couple uncomfortable feelings, like xenophobia, fear, political resentment, and divisiveness. Not exactly the type of thing you want for your domicile.

“Our goal was we have no interest in having any political position on anything,” said Sam Zell, the building’s owner. “Once Mr. Trump made the decision that he was going to enter the political scene, we looked at it and said, 'We just want to be neutral. We don't want to have an opinion.’”

According to The New York Times, hundreds of tenants petitioned to “Dump the TRUMP name.” 

This is the most actively neutral name removal we've seen since Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place became just Two Guys and a Girl. Now, that’s a reference everyone can get behind.

Have you noticed that our president elect has funny hair? Nature has!

This golden pheasant at Hangzhou Safari Park in Zhejiang province in China looks a lot like that billionaire, reality gameshow host the U.S. elected to the presidency last week.

Nature has a sick sense of humor, and Twitter is having a field day with it.

While most of the media was convinced that Trump could never be elected president, John Oliver was on TV telling us not to let that happen. Most listened, as Hillary Clinton went on to win the popular vote, but still here we are.

Last night Last Week Tonight, John Oliver devoted his show to looking back at what enabled Trump’s victory, such as the media, social media, and the spread of fiction posing as fact, and what we should do next.

All half hour of the Last Week Tonight's season finale is now available on YouTube. Come for his election coverage, stay for his tribute to this terrible, terrible year.

As America comes to terms with its decision to give a billionaire gameshow host the most powerful job in the world, people from around the world have voiced their opinions. One such person is Mexican cartel kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

In response to the Trump victory, “El Chapo” turned to Twitter, where he previously threatened President-elect Trump. Before quoting Martin Luther King, Jr., El Chapo tweeted:

Currently being held in Mexican prison, El Chapo awaits US extradition. The NY Daily News says they were unable to verify the twitter account @ElChap0Guzman; “though it is believed by some to be run by those close to the imprisoned 61-year-old gangster.”

In the past El Chapo has used to Twitter to threaten Trump, after Trump made disparaging remarks about the Mexican people, claiming that they were “rapists” and “drug dealers.”

“Keep f--king around, and I’ll make you eat all of your godd—n words, f—king whitey f—t @realDonaldTrump,” replied El Chapo.

In response to that, Donald Trump contacted the FBI becuase that's really scary.
