Hits and Misses: President Barack Obama, Donald Trump, One Direction, and more

Posted on November 8, 2012 by

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, President Barack Obama gets re-elected, Donald Trump is a sore loser, and One Direction wear football uniforms.

HIT: President Barack Obama gets re-elected

Let’s see: I’m a Canadian. I like my healthcare. I’m also a woman so I like my rights. I also love seeing people in love get their happy ending, whether they’re straight, gay queer, etc. So obviously, I’m happy that Obama won and those dickwads (a.k.a. Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock) who have absolutely no idea what rape is didn’t. Oh, I might as well mention that a very large group of diverse women (including an Asian-American and an openly gay politician) will be in the senate next year. To quote Tina Fey, “bitches get stuff done.”

MISS: Donald Trump’s Twitter rant post-election results

There was no one more upset than Donald Trump last night after all the news outlets (including Fox News) called the election in favour of Obama. He has since deleted most of the tweets, but it doesn’t matter because, to quote NBC anchor Brian Williams, Trump “has driven well past the last exit to relevance.” Trump is too short-sighted, stubborn and maybe even xenophobic to even contemplate bi-partisanship and it’s people like him who are splitting America apart. He can rant and rave all he wants, but he has to pull a Bill Clinton by backing his claims with facts before I take heed of his garbage.

HIT: One Direction in (American) football Uniforms

Sorry for the political bits. Apparently, the American political world morphes into the entertainment world during the last days of the election (Canadian elections aren’t as entertaining. Interesting, yes, but not entertaining). To apologize, here’s a photo of One Direction in tight American football uniforms. You are welcomed.

MISS: What Cee Lo Green wore on The Voice

Cee Lo Green is the best kind of creative person: he’s so eccentric that he brings his cat to work with him. Though, as much as I respect his “I don’t care what you think” attitude, I have to question what he was wearing on Monday night’s episode of The Voice. It looked like he was wearing a Prince costume. Hey Cee Lo, Halloween was last week.

HIT: Kristen Bell is pregnant

Veronica Mars, I mean, Kristen Bell is pregnant with her first child. She and long-time fiancé Dax Shepard are expecting the baby to arrive around late spring. Will Bell’s baby be a mini-super sleuth or a gossip blogger? Only time will tell!

MISS: Justin Bieber sex doll

After all the smutty hype surrounding 50 Shades of Grey, can you honestly say that you weren’t expecting this? I’m just going to throw a conspiracy theory in here and say the Bieber sex doll is just a Chris Hansen ploy to catch a predator. The makers should just automatically throw anyone who buys it onto the sex offenders list because Bieber’s baby face is just a little too innocent.
