As you already know, on Conan last night, Jon Hamm took a swing at Donald Trump’s inability to laugh at himself at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Well, inevitably, Trump — never one to pass up the opportunity to knock anyone who breathes (unless they’ve got knockers) — has gotta swing back, right? Problem: I’ve been trying to think all afternoon about how one could even attempt to insult real-life awesome person Hamm, and I’m coming up completely empty. As EW’s Darren Franich says, Hamm “has the sense of humor of an incredibly ugly stand-up comedian, but he also looks like Superman.” He’s got a bubble! READ FULL STORY

If EW’s grade-A review of Bridesmaids hasn’t convinced you to see the movie, watching Jon Hamm laugh while watching a fresh clip of himself and Kristen Wiig on Conan last night might seal the deal. Watch the nine-minute interview below. They talk about the film at the very end, and Hamm giggles at the mention of his character — the “unrepentant douchebag” who is Wiig’s boyfriend. It’s a genuine laugh that only builds when he talks about their awkward sex scene that opens the picture (good to know, don’t show up late!), and climaxes after the clip is shown of him suggesting Wiig take a nap in his lap while he’s driving.
Seriously, it could be the best he’s ever looked. The entire interview is charming, particularly when Conan does his Jack McBrayer impersonation and Hamm describes himself and EW cover boy Zach Galifianakis sitting at the table behind Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents Dinner and laughing “very loudly” at the president’s Trump jokes while The Apprentice star did not.

In a special three-hour episode of Celebrity Apprentice, three different celebrities left the show, either by their own volition or the firing finger of Donald Trump. The show also featured not one but two Meat Loaf meltdowns, neither of which involved missing paints. My full recap will be up at 2am (UPDATE: Click over to see Dalton’s full Celebrity Apprentice recap now), but if you can’t wait to sound off on all the insanity, then read on for more. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday’s episode of Celebrity Apprentice.] READ FULL STORY
Firings! Hirings! Dudes in red cowboy boots! Meat Loaf spending half the task in the bathroom! It was two-hours of madness on tonight’s Celebrity Apprentice, headed by NeNe’s verbal beat down of Star Jones. But who was sent packing in the end? My full recap will be up at 2am (UPDATE: Click over now to read Dalton’s full Celebrity Apprentice recap), but if you can’t wait to sound off on what went down, then read on for more.

Jon Stewart on yesterday's Obama birther 'non-shell.' Plus, the best explanation of Donald Trump's hair I've ever seen
There are so many nuggets of wisdom in Jon Stewart’s breakdown of what he calls the “non-shell” that was dropped yesterday when President Obama called a press conference to reiterate — more than two years after he took office — that he was, in fact, born in America. Among them? The introduction of the word “non-shell” to my dictionary (and quite possibly a new PopWatch category).
He also created a visual aid for people — like yours truly — who never quite understood what was going on atop Donald Trump’s head. (I knew it was bad news, but never dwelled too much on the matter.) Now, if only Stewart had a diagram for us to explain what was going on inside Trump’s head. READ FULL STORY
Bowing to pressure from “carnival barkers” who stubbornly refused to believe that he was born in the United States, President Obama released a long-form version of his birth certificate, proving again that he was born in Hawaii. While Donald Trump gloated about his role in “getting rid of this issue,” this story is far from over. Those people inclined to doubt Obama’s citizenship aren’t easily persuaded by a quote-unquote legal document. And as director Adam McKay points out in a Huffington Post column, Obama’s disclosure now puts Hawaii on the hot seat. “It’s time Hawaii answer doubters and produce documents proving that it is a state,” writes McKay, who recently launched a website dedicated to protest songs. “What are they hiding? And why haven’t we seen these documents?” READ FULL STORY
Try to imagine, if you will, a world without Donald Trump. Not only would our nation’s comedians surely starve, but we’d never know how to angrily point on book covers or find fun, catchy ways to tell people they are no longer needed at their place of employment.
But, really, wouldn’t America suffer the worst of all? For weeks Trump has been
crusading to have President Barack Obama prove his validity and release his birth certificate to the public. Lest we forget, this is coming from a guy who fought to let Carrie Prejean keep her Miss California crown, despite a nude photo controversy. (Though, to be fair, she was going to represent that state for an entire year.) Still, after weeks months years of scrutiny — and hardly just from Trump — President Obama announced in the White House briefing room on Wednesday morning he would offer up his birth certificate as a means to no longer “get sidetracked by side shows and carnival barkers” and get the nation to focus its attention on bigger issues at hand. (See video of the conference on the White House’s website.) Obama did not mention Trump’s name during his conference with the press, but, the Apprentice star seemed to hear things a little differently. READ FULL STORY
Donald Trump on De Niro's remarks: 'I like his acting ... [but] we're not dealing with Albert Einstein'
Things are getting heated between legendary actor Robert De Niro and Apprentice host/possible presidential candidate/rich person Donald Trump. Over the weekend, the notoriously reserved actor opened up to NBC’s Brian Williams during an interview at the Tribeca Film Festival, revealing some uncharacteristically candid opinions about politics.

The days of scoffing at Donald Trump’s presidential ambitions are over. Everybody is saying he should run for president! Everybody! And he’s not just appealing to the quote-unquote lunatic fringe of birthers who insist the president wasn’t born in this country. No, he’s attracting support from across the reality-television political spectrum. Gary Busey, who was kicked off Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice last week, is already on-board the T.R.U.M.P. train: Taking Redirection Understanding Massive Power. Last night, Busey’s Apprentice nemesis, Meat Loaf, chimed in and also volunteered to help with Trump’s campaign. Watch the grassroots movement grow! READ FULL STORY
