15 Best Jokes From President Obama at His Final Nerd Prom Thumbnail

The 2016 White House Correspondent Dinner (aka Nerd Prom) was bittersweet because it was President Barack Obama’s final one. It’s definitely one event to look forward to every year because he lets loose and roasts the hell outta Washington DC’s finest: the media, Congress, and himself. My only regret in life is that I never got [...]

Turn America Off

It feels like the United States is going through some things right now. Between this election season’s straight buffoonery, spurred on by the GOP cirque du idiots and the Dems ripping each other apart, things are rough around here. It also doesn’t help that state legislatures are obsessed with regulating the bodies of women, instead [...]

The GOP Candidates Debate Entrance Fail is a Gift Thumbnail

All we have in this world of sin and frustrating election season is the ability to laugh at the absurdity of it all. None of this shit makes sense, and at this point, I’m almost convinced that we’re all being Punk’d. But knowing we’re not makes me wanna sit on a stoop and cry like [...]

The Night of the 2016 Iowa Caucus Was Long and Treacherous Thumbnail

Edith Childs SOTU

The 2016 State of the Union Address (and last of the Obama Administration) was full of entertainment. Y’all know I watch some of these shows to be the lady on the stoop roasting everyone. This is why people miss me sometimes when I don’t live-tweet shows and events. You’re basically missing Miss Benita. ANTYWAY, in [...]

So I Watched the Democratic Debate (#DemDebate) Thumbnail

It was the first Democratic candidate debates in what is sure to be a looonngggg, slow and torturous campaign season. The Republicans already showed their asses like twice and they’ve tried to out-offend each other. So this debate was long overdue. To be honest, I didn’t feel like watching TV last night. Like none of [...]

President Obama WHCD Nerd Prom 2015

The White House Correspondents Dinner (aka Nerd Prom) was last night, and as always, President Barack Obama came to roast. He’s fresh out of terms and fresh out of dambs to give too, so he came for everyone who sent for him in his 20 minute set. He even ended it with Luther the Anger [...]

Nigerian Flag

I am forever annoyed by the way stories told about Africa and Africans are framed. We’ve come so far but we’re still acting like the continent is nothing but a giant country of bad news and bad decisions and it is always frustrating to me. History was made yesterday when for the first time ever, [...]
