Trump’s Border Wall Speech Outdrawn by Democrat Response in Overnight Ratings

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

President Trump’s primetime address from the Oval Office on immigration was bested by the ensuing Democrat response, according to metered market results.

Trump’s speech, which aired during the 9-9:15 p.m. ET timeframe, drew a 28.1 rating in the metered markets, with the response from Democrats, including House speaker Nancy Pelosi and fellow Dem. Senator Chuck Schumer garnering a 29.3 overnight rating during the 9:15-9:30 timeframe, roughly 4 percent higher.

The numbers came courtesy of Michael Mulvihill, Fox Sports’ executive VP of research, who tweeted out the results Wednesday morning. We should caution that these numbers are subject to heavier-than-usual adjustment, and that Trump’s speech and the response didn’t air exactly within those two 15-minute increments, it’s just that its the smallest window Nielsen data can break down into,

Nielsen will put out more official numbers that will break down how the coverage performed network-by-network.

Combined overnight ratings of seven national networks:

9-9:15, including President Trump’s address to the nation: 28.1 rating / 45 share

9:15-9:30, including Pelosi/Schumer response: 29.3 rating / 47 share

Both the speech and the response were aired across seven national networks: ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, CNN, Fox News and NBC. The major news networks differed sharply in how they covered Donald Trump address from the Oval Office on Tuesday to make a case for tough immigration laws and more than $5 billion in funding for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

On Fox News, host Tucker Carlson kept it light with colleague Dana Perino, volleying between joking about recent news coverage and dispassionate assessments of what Trump might and might not say. On the other side of the ideological spectrum, MSNBC hosts Chris Hayes and Rachel Maddow were already pre-fact checking the president, offering corrections to claims they expected him to make and offered liberal-friendly speculation about how the shutdown might end.

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer offered a brief rebuttal after Trump finished speaking.

ABC, NBC and CBS all cut into regularly scheduled primetime programming to air the address. The non-cable channels spent a little time on post-speech analysis before returning to their regularly scheduled programs.

President Trump Trashes ‘Crazy’ Democrats for His ‘Home Alone’ Christmas: ‘I Am All Alone (Poor Me)’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

President Trump, instead of channeling his inner Kevin McAllister and enjoying being “all alone” in the White House on Christmas Eve, is blasting Democrats for refusing to give him the one gift he really wants: a $5-billion border wall.

“I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security,” Trump tweeted on Monday. “At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more money than the Border Wall we are all talking about. Crazy!”

I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security. At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more money than the Border Wall we are all talking about. Crazy!

President Trump and congressional Democrats have been unable to reach a budget agreement, pushing the government into a partial shutdown that reached its third day on Monday. Trump has demanded funding for the border wall — which he said would be both “beautiful” and “totally effective” at blocking illegal migration last week  —  be included in any budget that’s approved.

On a lighter note, the president’s lonely tweet did have a bit of a “Home Alone” vibe to it — a franchise Trump briefly appeared in. You can check out his 1992 cameo in “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York” below:

Trump’s tweet on border security was part of a larger thread on Monday morning, with the president touching on everything from the war in Syria to a report he “lashed out” at acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker. The president also skewered the Federal Reserve, saying it “doesn’t understand” his policies — leading to the recent market downturn. The Dow Jones and S&P 500 both recorded their worst Christmas Eve trading day ever on Monday.

Trevor Noah Almost Has Too Much Fun Talking About Stephen Miller’s Hair (Video)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

On Monday’s “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah had a huge laugh talking about Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller, after Miller went on Sunday’s “Face the Nation” — and faced ridicule from said nation over his hair.

At issue: Miller appeared to have deployed spray-on hair to mask his receding hairline for his appearance on the CBS show to talk about the border wall Trump wants to build. Except he wasn’t remotely subtle about it, and the effect was a stark contrast in the color of different parts of his hair that everyone noticed. Cue a storm of jokes from Noah.

“Miller was back on TV talking about how America has to pay for the wall. Emphasis on ‘to pay,’” Noah said, making it rhyme with “toupee.” Cue a clip in which Miller’s hair is… noticeable.

“Did you catch that? Not the stuff about the Southern border. I’m talking about the new border. Up here,” Noah said, pointing to his head.

“Bit of a ‘migration’ happening, by the way… It’s like someone said ‘who here hates immigrants?’ and his hair was like ‘this guy,’” Noah joked, motioning as if hair was pointing down.

“Although, I don’t think we should be going after Miller,” Noah continued. “I think we should be going after his barber, Sherwin Williams.”

“It barely even looks like hair. Who let him leave the house like that,” Noah continued. “It looks like he got head-butted by Stephen Segal and it stuck.”

There’s plenty more, and it’s pretty funny, so we’ll let you watch for yourself in the clip below:

HBO Picks Up ‘Icebox’ Feature About 12-Year-Old Honduran Seeking Asylum in US

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

HBO Films announced on Thursday that it has acquired the worldwide rights to director-writer Daniel Sawka’s feature film debut “Icebox.”

The film stars Anthony Gonzalez (“Coco”) as Oscar, a 12-year-old Honduran boy who is forced to flee his home and seek asylum in the U.S., only to find himself trapped in the U.S. immigration system.

As Oscar attempts to reach his uncle in Arizona, he is apprehended by Border Patrol and placed in “the icebox,” a detention facility where he joins scores of other migrant children being held without their families. Faced with a seemingly impenetrable immigration system, Oscar struggles to navigate a path to freedom, with a journalist and his uncle, himself a recent immigrant, as his only lifelines.

The drama will debut on HBO on Friday, Dec. 7.

“I have seldom seen a movie so of the moment – it’s almost reportage,” said HBO Film president Len Amato in a statement. “‘ICEBOX’ gives viewers not only an opportunity to witness what it’s like inside these migrant detention centers, but also to feel the emotions of the children, revealing a world that many journalists and citizens have not yet been able to sufficiently penetrate.”

“Icebox” was produced by Oscar-winner James Brooks’ Gracie Films and co-financed with Endeavor Content. Richard Sakai, Julie Ansell and David Greathouse also serve as producers.

Brooks and his production company, Gracie Films, partnered with Sawka to expand the project from a master’s thesis short into a feature-length film. “Icebox” premiered in the Discovery section at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Endeavor Content co-financed the production and handled the worldwide sale.

The film also stars Omar Leyva, Johnny Ortiz, Matthew Moreno, Jessica Juarez and Genesis Rodriguez.

“The narrative and characters in ‘Icebox’ are inspired by so many personal stories that were told to me through years of research and outreach – stories that unfortunately have become all too prevalent in today’s world,” Sawka said in a statement. “I can’t think of a better partner than HBO Films with which to present this incredibly timely issue.”

Filmed on location in New Mexico, the film was shot primarily in Spanish with English subtitles. Sawka originally wrote and directed “Icebox” as a short film for his 2016 American Film Institute MFA thesis project. The short was shortlisted for the 2018 Academy Awards, won the Grand Jury Award at AFI Fest and screened at Telluride Film Festival.

Associated Press Deletes Tweet Calling Migrant Caravan an ‘Army’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

The Associated Press deleted a tweet Sunday evening that called a large caravan of migrants from Central America a ragged “army.” The decision from the wire service came just hours after the tweet was posted and sustained heavy criticism online.

“We have deleted a tweet about the migrant caravan moving through Central America and Mexico because it lacked context. A new tweet will be posted shortly,” the AP said.

“They have said they are fleeing widespread violence, poverty and corruption in Honduras. The growing caravan of migrants has resumed its journey to the U.S,” read the corrected version moments later.

Reps for the AP did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.

The organization came under fire Sunday evening for the tweet. Critics immediately pounded on the wire service for using the term, saying it was wrong to characterize the migrants as an invading force.

Though the tweet was later deleted, multiple screenshots of it were captured.

“Words matter. Is it @AP style to call migrants an “army”–above a photo of mothers tending to their infants and toddlers, no less?,” said Rolling Stone senior writer Jamil Smith in a tweet Sunday. “This is not only incorrect, but it enables a racist narrative sold by this @POTUS and his supporters. Armies invade. These people are running away.”

The migrants, most of whom are from Honduras and are still thousands of miles from the U.S. border, have become a potent campaign issue. President Trump has vowed to prevent their entry into the country and has even threatened to deploy the military if need be. The scene from the caravan has been chaotic. On Friday, CNN reporter Bill Weir was pelted with tear gas and rocks as the caravan attempted to gain entry into Mexico.

On Sunday, Trump reiterated that he would fight the “onslaught.”

“Full efforts are being made to stop the onslaught of illegal aliens from crossing our Souther Border,” he said in a tweet. “People have to apply for asylum in Mexico first, and if they fail to do that, the U.S. will turn them away. The courts are asking the U.S. to do things that are not doable!”

“Superstore” star America Ferrera, “Hamilton’s” Lin-Manuel Miranda and R&B star Alicia Keys were among the big-name stars who joined the thousands of protesters who gathered on Saturday to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policy

In dozens of cities across the country, protesters gathered at various “Families Belong Together” marches to protest the administration’s zero-tolerance policy to detain and separate unauthorized migrant parents from their children attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border.

“I am here not only as a brand new mother, as the proud child of Honduran immigrants and not only an American who sees it as her duty to be here defending justice,” Ferrera said at the gathering in Washington D.C. “I am here as a human being with a beating heart, who can feel pain, who understands compassion and who can easily imagine what it must feel like to struggle the way families are struggling right now.”

Keys also delivered a speech at the rally, accompanied by her 7-year-old son. “Our democracy is at stake. Our humanity is at stake. We are out here to save the soul of our nation,” she said.

Miranda sang a lullaby rendition of the “Hamilton” song “Dear Theodosia,” which he dedicated to the children who were separated from their parents and detained after crossing into the U.S.

Jim Carrey Rips ‘Mammonite Fundamentalist’ Trump in New Artwork

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Actor/artist Jim Carrey went after Donald Trump again on Thursday with his latest artwork, bringing a religious spin to his latest dig at the president.

In a message accompanying his latest work, which was posted to his Twitter account, Carrey called out Trump as a “Mammonite Fundamentalist” and demanded, “Release your 2,000 child hostages!!”

We’ll spare you the trouble of a Google search, and note that YourDictionary.com defines “Mammonite” as “One devoted to the acquisition of wealth, or the service of Mammon.”

Also Read: Jim Carrey Stomps on Trump With ‘Fixed’ Version of Time’s Toddler Cover

The message was an apparent reference to the immigrant children who have reportedly been separated from their families — and, given the Ayatollah-ish facial hair and headwear that Trump is sporting in the artwork, a call-back to the Iran hostage crisis of the late ’70s and early ’80s.

Check out Carrey’s latest below.

Trevor Noah Compares Mike Pence’s Brazil Immigration Speech to a Movie Villain (Video)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Vice President Mike Pence made a speech this week in Brazil, directed at immigrants coming to the United States, that Trevor Noah said on Wednesday’s “The Daily Show” sounds something a supervillain would say in an action movie.

“To the people of Central America, I have a message for you, straight from my heart, and straight the heart of the American people,” Pence said in the speech. “Don’t risk your lives or the lives of your children by trying to come to the United States on a road run by drug smugglers and human traffickers. If you can’t come legally, don’t come at all.”

Also Read: Fallon Claps Back at Trump on ‘Tonight Show’: ‘Shouldn’t He Have More Important Things to Do?’

The segment cut back to Noah, who looked deeply disturbed.

“Goddamn,” Noah said. “That’s from his heart? Gee, what does he say when he hates you? That was so intense, as well: ‘If you can’t come legally, don’t come at all.’ Incidentally, that’s also his rule for sex.”

Noah then dunked on Pence’s choice of venue for the speech: Brazil, which isn’t in Central America, and isn’t where migrants are coming from.

Also Read: Michelle Wolf: ‘Trump Doesn’t Want to Be Allies With Anyone Who’s Good-Looking’

“You realize that Florida is closer to Central America than Brazil,” he said. “Like, there’s no issue with immigrants coming from Brazil illegally. Brazilians don’t even speak Spanish; like Brazil’s just kind of similar to them. What does that mean? It’s like going to a ‘Star Trek’ convention and going, ‘I’ve got a message for Chewbacca!’ But I guess for Pence it’s close enough?”

It was the intensity of the speech that really got to Noah, though.

“The way Pence delivered that speech was no joke,” he said. “He sounded like — you know those movies where a villain is showing up on every single TV screen around the world?”
