Twitter Mocks Trump, Paul Ryan After Obamacare Repeal Fails Bigly

50 minutes ago

In an embarrassing setback, House Republicans today abandoned a health care bill that would have repealed and replaced the Affordable Care Act, after Gop Speaker of the House Paul Ryan informed President Trump that he was unable to whip up the number of Republican votes necessary for the bill to pass. The bill’s historic unpopularity (it was polling at 17 percent as of this morning) was bad enough, but the fight to get it passed exposed deep divisions within the Republican party. As a result, unsurprisingly, Twitter is having a field day, mocking both Trump and Ryan for failing utterly. »

Did Us Weekly Just Troll Its New Trump-Friendly Owner?

1 hour ago

Did laid-off Us Weekly staffers go down fighting the magazine’s new Trump-friendly owner? You might draw that conclusion from its latest cover story, which landed the day before mass layoffs at the celebrity magazine. While many journalists say they don’t care what public figures do in their bedrooms, Us Weekly purported to push open Donald and Melania Trump’s bedroom door — or bedroom doors, if Us is to be believed. “Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Keep Separate Bedrooms: ‘They Never Spend the Night Together,'”  blares the cover story of the latest issue, which appeared online Wednesday. »

Patton Oswalt to Mike Huckabee: ‘Go Wipe Your Ass With a Corncob’

1 hour ago

Comedian Patton Oswalt isn’t done taking shots at former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee. After mocking Huckabee’s questionable sense of humor on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday night, Oswalt took a more pointed jab at Huckabee on Friday, telling the politician, “Go wipe your ass with a corncob.” The blunt suggestion came after Oswalt appeared on the ABC late-night show to skewer Huckabee’s joke-telling abilities. During the skit, Oswalt stood in front of a backdrop of a fake comedy club called Yuck Yuckabee’s to repeat three of Huckabee’s jokes. Also Read: Even Patton Oswalt Can't Make Mike Huckabee »

‘Rogue One’ Should Have Been the Dark Rebellion Movie We Need (Commentary)

2 hours ago

Rewatching “Rogue One” for the first time since it was in theaters, it’s impossible not to see the movie it could have been — a dark, nuanced exploration of the central conflict of “Star Wars,” the Rebellion against the Galactic Empire. In fact, “Rogue One” has always felt like it was meant to be that exploration of the gray area between good and evil, before rewrites and reshoots turned it into more of a compendium of plot threads than one coherent story. For evidence of that, look no further than Saw Guerrera, Forest Whitaker’s character — who should have been. »

Richard Jewell. Mark Hughes. And now Abu Izzadeen. The number of people wrongly accused in terror attacks is long, and results from what one falsely accused man says is a failure by the news media to “verify before you vilify.” After London’s horrific terror attack Wednesday, several media outlets rushed to identify Abu Izzadeen as the man behind them. But others said he had a solid alibi: He’s behind bars for an unrelated offense. If he wasn’t involved, Abu Izzadeen will join a long line of people who have been falsely accused. Here are some others. Richard Jewell »
