That would be Jamie Foxx. He took the name in tribute to Redd Foxx.

First, I'd like to flow chart her ass. Next, the Hag says that she's around Lumpy and not under investigation, but she IS under investigation! Not about Russia (one of the FEW around Lumpy not being investigated for Russian ties) but about her PR firm and insurance peddling.

"I don't think we should pass bills that haven't read that we don't know what they cost. If you rush this thing through before anyone knows what it is, that's not good democracy." -Paul Ryan, on Obamacare. Nowadays, the speaker of the house is singing a very different tune when it comes to the GOP led health care reform bill.
In the latest segment of "A Closer Look," Seth Meyers unpacks Republicans and their defense of the controversial bill, dubbed "Trumpcare," that narrowly passed in the House of Representatives. While it seems some Republicans did not read the bill, at least Ryan's office watched Late Night enough to send Meyers an email in response to the show's bit about the health care bill.
"We genuinely appreciate the engagement and would love to have Ryan on the show," Meyers said, before breaking down points made in the email.
Donald Trump's (R-Corrupt) sudden dismissal of FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday has seen the betting odds of a Trump impeachment skyrocket, bookmaking sites told AFP on Wednesday.
Opposition Democrat lawmakers have ramped up calls for an independent investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow since Trump's surprise firing of the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday.
The shocking news drew immediate comparisons to former President Richard Nixon's dismissal of the independent Watergate investigator Archibald Cox in 1973. Nixon resigned the following year after a congressional panel voted for impeachment.
By Wednesday, the odds for a Trump impeachment during his first term had risen from 2/1 to 4/6, representing a 60 percent chance, according to Lewis Davey, a spokesman for the Irish betting site Paddy Power.
"We can attribute this to the news of Comey's sacking," said Davey, adding that the current four-to-six odds were "the shortest we've been for Trump to be impeached in his first term."
A recent flood of identical comments voicing opposition to the net neutrality rules passed under the Barack Obama administration posted on the Federal Communications Commission's website appear to be the work of a bot, ZDNet reported.
The bot has thus far left about 58,000 comments - about 10 percent of the total 550,000 responses - all of which contain identical wording and appear to use the names and location of people without their permission.
"The unprecedented regulatory power the Obama Administration imposed on the internet is smothering innovation, damaging the American economy and obstructing job creation," the comment reads. "I urge the Federal Communications Commission to end the bureaucratic regulatory overreach of the internet known as Title II and restore the bipartisan light-touch regulatory consensus that enabled the internet to flourish for more than 20 years."
The comment has appeared with thousands of different names, postal addresses and zip codes attached to it - many of which appear to be real people.
It is unclear from where the bot is sourcing the information, but it is cycling through names in alphabetical order as it leaves the comments. One poster on Reddit suggested it was using information from Zillow.
Rhimes has given indications in recent months that she had an end date in mind for the show, which has ranked as one of ABC's most-watched and buzziest dramas for the bulk of its run. The show was among the first to capitalize on Twitter and second-screen social media activity as a means of boosting awareness and viewership of linear telecasts.
"Scandal" turned Kerry Washington into a major star, and its success helped cement Rhimes' status as an uber-showrunner. "Scandal" was the pillar of ABC's "TGIT" strategy of loading up Thursday night with Rhimes-produced sudsers. Of late, however, a resurgent "Grey's Anatomy" has eclipsed the viewership of "Scandal."
Donald Trump (R-Grifter) has hired a legal team to help defend him against allegations over his links with Russia, the White House has announced.
The US leader has asked the unnamed Washington law firm to send a letter to a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee making clear he has no connections to the Kremlin, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said.
The admission came after Senator Lindsey Graham (R-Narnia), who ran against Mr Trump for the Republican presidential nomination, said he wanted to investigate whether the US leader had any commercial dealings with Moscow.
"The President, obviously, was aware of Senator Graham's suggestion after he made it today and he's fine with that", Mr Spicer told reporters. "He has no business in Russia. He has no connections to Russia. So he welcomes that.
"In fact, he has already charged a leading law firm in Washington DC to send a certified letter to Senator Graham to point out that he has no connections to Russia."

UN climate negotiators in Bonn were left frustrated Tuesday as the White House postponed a meeting to determine whether the US will stay in the 196-nation Paris Agreement to curb planet-harming fossil fuel.
As uncertainty mounted over the hard-fought pact's future under Donald Trump (R-Crooked), China's leader Xi Jinping came to its defence.
China and France "should protect the achievements of global governance, including the Paris Agreement," the foreign ministry in Beijing quoted Xi as telling his newly-elected counterpart Emmanuel Macron in a phone call.
Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, who alongside Xi was instrumental in the agreement's birth in 2015, also entered the fray on Tuesday.
Trump, who has described climate change as a "hoax" perpetrated by China, has yet to announce whether he intends keeping a campaign promise to withdraw Washington from the Paris Agreement.
Almost one in three newly approved drugs in the United States turns out to have a safety issue after it is allowed on the market, US researchers said Tuesday.
While these issues are rarely serious enough to get the drug pulled from the marketplace, researchers said new drugs should be monitored for years after they are released to the public.
Cutting-edge therapies known as biologics, psychiatric drugs, and medicines that were fast-tracked by the US Food and Drug Administration were most likely to require additional safety warnings after approval, said the report in Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
For the study, Yale University researchers analyzed 222 new drugs approved between 2001 and 2010, and followed up on them through 2017.
A total of 32 percent of new drugs (71 in all) were flagged for a safety issue after approval, the study said.

Barely two days into crafting a new bill to roll back Obamacare, U.S. Senate Republicans were already on the defensive on Tuesday over the absence of any women in their core working group.
After a meeting of the Senate healthcare group, lawmakers were bombarded with questions as to why no women were named to the 13-man panel. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Weasel) tried to explain.
"The working group that counts is all 52 of us," McConnell told reporters, referring to all 52 Republican senators in the 100-member chamber. "Nobody is being excluded based upon gender ... Everybody's at the table. Everybody."
Democrats pounced. Republican men are negotiating "a secret healthcare plan, which I really hope is not happening in the men's locker room," said Senator Patty Murray, a member of the Democratic leadership from Washington state.
If the criticism was any sign of what lies ahead as senators try to improve on a rollback bill passed on Thursday by House of Representatives Republicans, it could be a long road ahead.
Paleontologists from Canada's Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) discovered the remains of a new species of dinosaur in the Judith River Formation of northern Montana, an ankylosaur that resembles the fictional monster Zuul from the 1984 movie, "Ghostbusters."
Researchers who discovered it have chosen to name it after the monster, calling it Zuul crurivastator. The second part of its name means "destroyer of shins" and is a nod to the dinosaur's sledgehammer-like tail. The powerful tail clubs and bony armour were features common to ankylosaurids, a group of ankylosaurs that were bulky quadrupeds with short limbs and mainly herbivorous.
The new-found ankylosaur skeleton had four horns on the skull, one behind and one under each eye. It had large nostrils and elaborate ornamentation across the snout," which helped identify the species as different from previously known members of the group, all of which had bony spikes, called osteoderms.
Zuul lived about 75 million years ago in the Cretaceous Period. Its powerful tail "could inflict serious damage on opponents, such as predatory theropods or maybe even other ankylosaurs competing for mates or territory," according to a ROM statement explaining the tails. It called them "an amazing biological weapon and one of the weirdest and most recognisable features of ankylosaurs. The back half of the tail was stiff, and the tip of the tail was covered with large bony plates - together, these formed a sledgehammer or axe-like weapon. Zuul has a long tail with sharp, pointed spikes along the sides and a large tail club."
An adult Zuul was about 6 meters (20 feet) long and weighed over 2.5 tonnes.
Parks was born in April, 1940 in Corona, Calif., and grew up as the son of a baseball player. His first screen roles included playing a nephew named Tom in 1961 in the ABC sitcom The Real McCoys and the role of Park in a 1962 Gunsmoke episode.
Parks' movie credits included Ben Affleck's Argo, the horror/crime hybrid From Dusk Till Dawn, and dual roles in the Kill Bill franchise of Texan Ranger Earl McGraw in the first film and Esteban Vihaio in the sequel. And he played a villain in Smith's horror films Red State and Tusk.
