People magazine’s “ Sexiest Man Alive ” made an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Tuesday where he couldn’t help but gush about his daughters, 11-month old Jasmine and 15-year-old Simone. “It’s the greatest blessing just being a dad,” he told host Ellen DeGeneres, who then showed a video of baby Jasmine “ drumming on daddy’s head .” “It seems like you’re encouraging it by putting your head there all the time,” DeGeneres joked, to which Johnson adorably responded, “That’s what good daddies do!” The actor also talked about his dog, a French bulldog named Hobbs . “I have a house full of women and that’s my guy,” he said, as cute photos of the pup in the gym flashed by on the screen.

It’s essential that the Demo cratic Party becomes more of a grassroots organization, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) believes.
Megan Kelly gained national attention when she moderated the first Republican primary debate last August, where she faced off with then-Republican candidate Donald Trump.

John Oliver summed up many people’s feelings on Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight” when he named 2016 “the fucking worst,” and tried to make sense of Donald Trump ’s victory. All roads led back to the same important question: “What the fuck do we do now?” “We’re going to need to stay here and fight, and not just politically in four years when he’s up for reelection, but constantly, monitoring legislation as it moves through Congress, and fucking voting when your legislators come up for reelection in two years,” Oliver said.

In powerful, sometimes violent waves, six women faced off Friday during the World Surf League’s first big-wave surfing competition for women at Jaws, a famed surf break on the Hawaiian island of Maui.

It’s been a rough couple of days for some Hillary Clinton supporters, but a young mother’s story of her walk on Thursday will likely help disappointed voters get back on track.
