All the Times Trump Has Mentioned WikiLeaks, Which He Now Claims to ‘Know Nothing About’

During a press appearance with South Korean president Moon Jae-In on Thursday morning, President Trump responded to a question about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s indictment with a shrug of the shoulders and a comment: “I know nothing about WikiLeaks. It’s not my thing.”

Trump says that now, but he sure seemed to know plenty about Assange’s site during the 2016 campaign, citing and praising its leaks of stolen Democratic emails regularly at events.

In fact, we counted at least 50 times Trump cited WikiLeak, though there are undoubtedly more: Closed captioning transcribers are less-than-consistent in their presentation of the site’s name. Regardless, we’ve compiled a portion of them above. Perhaps it will serve as a helpful reminder to him.

John Oliver Gives Ivanka Trump a Serious Reality Check: You Got Nothing on ‘Merit’

HBO

On Sunday night, John Oliver dedicated the opening portion of Last Week Tonight to the “series of setbacks” for President Trump this week, from his failure of a summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to the congressional testimony of Trump’s former fixer (and ex-RNC deputy finance chair) Michael Cohen.

“Over the course of the hearing, Cohen described several possible crimes by his former boss, from suborning perjury to campaign-finance violations, and yet, the Republicans primarily used their time to attack Cohen’s credibility,” offered Oliver in a brief recap.

But the HBO host was most riled up by the revelation that President Trump is said to have ordered his former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly to grant Jared Kushner top-secret security clearance—despite the protestations of Kelly and national security officials.

Teresa Giudice Thinks There’s Nothing Wrong With Flirting With Other Guys While Hubby Joe Is Still In Prison

While insider reports insist that Teresa and Joe Giudice are not over, it turns out that them still being a married couple does not stop the reality TV star from flirting with hot, younger guys while Joe is serving the rest of his prison sentence. Apparently, the woman loves the attention and sees nothing wrong with her flirtatious ways.

As you may know, Joe has been locked up for almost three years now, so it makes sense that Teresa has been living her life and getting used to the fact that her husband was not in it!

Teresa has been developing a passion for bodybuilding, and the results are definitely showing, which is why she feels so great in her skin these days!

So because of that, the attention from men never fails to come, and she usually likes to flirt right back!

Most notably, Teresa was spotted holding hands with a 26-year-old New Jersey realtor named Blake Schreck not too long ago.

One source tells HollywoodLife that she sees nothing wrong with flirting even though she is a married woman.

‘She is being very flirty with a lot of guys right now. Teresa loves to flirt with and has been seen out around town and on vacation and loves the male attention because she is not getting it elsewhere right now,’ the insider explained.

They went on to dish that ‘She has been going out a lot more and living what appears to be a single life even though she is married and not single. She loves to go out with her friends and to have a good time. Guys come up to her constantly and she sees nothing wrong with talking to them and even flirting back.’

Patty Jenkins and Chris Pine’s I Am the Night Is a Retro Noir Thriller With Nothing New to Say

Notorious cold cases tend to splinter into competing narratives, each containing fragments of an elusive truth—and few have elicited theories as odd as those that surround the lurid 1947 murder of 22-year-old Elizabeth Short, a.k.a. the Black Dahlia, in Los Angeles. Orson Welles, Woody Guthrie, mob boss Bugsy Siegel and LA Times publisher Norman Chandler were all floated as suspects at some point. New books still appear every few years, offering novel takes on the picked-over evidence.

One of the saddest and strangest of these tales, Fauna Hodel’s memoir One Day She’ll Darken, is the inspiration for TNT’s six-episode miniseries I Am the Night, which premieres on Jan. 28. Raised outside Reno, Nev. as Patricia Ann Greenway—a poor, light-skinned biracial girl with a black single mom—Hodel learned as a teen in the mid-1960s that her birth mother was really Tamar Hodel, a young woman from a prominent white Los Angeles family. Writer Sam Sheridan introduces 16-year-old Fauna (India Eisley from The Secret Life of the American Teenager) just before this discovery, when she’s simply trying survive the Civil Rights era as a racial outcast with a strict, alcoholic parent (Girlfriends’ Golden Brooks). We know she’s desperate to fit in because the show’s unsubtle script contrives to let her say so in the opening scene: “I just wanna be normal!”

After stumbling upon her birth certificate and tracking down her grandfather, gynecologist George Hodel (an appropriately creepy Jefferson Mays), Fauna’s search for an identity brings her to L.A. That’s where, following a few episodes’ worth of unnecessary suspense, her quest collides with that of Chris Pine’s hardboiled hero Jay Singletary, a dissipated tabloid crime journalist who got PTSD in Korea after bungling a prestigious LA Times gig in the late ’40s. (“Some stories you can’t tell,” his editor informs a cub reporter, by way of explaining Jay’s downfall. “Some stories will eat you alive.”) That debacle put him on the trail of George, an art connoisseur with friends in high places and possible ties to the Black Dahlia. Like Fauna, Jay is chasing a buried truth that only Tamar can help him unearth. Too bad Tamar is nowhere to be found.

Though it takes place half a century ago, I Am the Night—with its true-crime hook, interest in racial identity and fixation on violence against women—is a story made for the present. And it’s gratifying to see Wonder Woman filmmaker Patty Jenkins, who directed three episodes, reunite with Pine for a TV project that leaves superheroes behind. Every scene looks gorgeous: Jenkins’ neo-noir LA comes alive in neon-lit nightscapes, while the muted hues of Fauna’s hometown recall Norman Rockwell’s less idyllic works. A proto-psychedelic art happening, with bodies writhing behind screens, makes a beguiling set piece. Pine and Brooks have hammy moments, but for the most part, their big performances feel appropriate to the retro context.

If only the writing played to these strengths. True story or not, I Am the Night too often resembles an oversimplified version of the 1974 classic Chinatown, another California noir about abuse of power that parallels family dysfunction with its institutional equivalent. I’ve never been great at predicting plot twists, but I saw many of Sheridan’s coming a few episodes away. And despite dialogue that can be transparent enough to make you suspect someone spiked their coffee with truth serum, the characters are inconsistent. Fauna is steely in one scene and timid in the next. Jay alternates between acts of death-defying heroism and moments of utter helplessness—fluctuations that seem governed more by plot needs than by his past trauma.

The pacing is off, too. Early episodes get bogged down in exposition and digressions. (A lingering flashback to one of George’s bacchanals, paired with a reading from Edgar Allen Poe’s poem “A Dream Within a Dream,” had me groaning out loud.) Later installments move too quickly to devote adequate time to the ideas about race, gender, art and personal morality raised at the beginning. By the finale, the show isn’t depicting George’s fixation on women’s suffering so much as recreating it in gratuitous detail. This shift doesn’t just rob the story of thematic depth; it renders it impossible to draw a line between the exploitation I Am the Night depicts and the exploitation it practices.

Humans, Machines and Markets: Stocks Going Crazy Is Nothing New

The 2018 casualty list is long. Hedge funds. Trillion-dollar price tags on Apple and Amazon. Trading records everywhere. Not even Christmas was spared the wrath of cascading stocks. It feels unprecedented, Armageddon, or maybe the robot apocalypse. It isn’t.

While any 20 percent sell-off hurts, the one happening now is far from unprecedented in terms of depth or velocity. Over the past 100 years, there are almost too many examples to count of stocks tumbling with comparable force.

“It’s an inevitable process,” Marshall Front, founder of Front Barnett Advisers, who began on Wall Street in 1963. “It goes on over and over again.”

Investors have time to reflect on history, now that stocks have avoided a fourth straight down week via the biggest one-day rally since 2009. After coming within a few points of a bear market on Wednesday, the damage in the S&P 500 stands at 15 percent since Sept. 20.

“This is very normal. It unnerves people because we’re all talking about it all the time,” said Nancy Tengler, chief investment strategist at Tengler Wealth Management. “It’s in our face more. We have too much focus on the day-to-day or minute-by-minute or second-by-second movements. Historically, is this normal? Yes.”

A fair amount of complaining has gone on in recent months about the role of high-frequency traders and quantitative funds in the drubbing that reached its peak around Christmas. Perhaps. Those groups are big, and in the search for villains, they make easy targets. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is among the people who have made the connection.

One thing that makes it tough to lay blame for the meltdown on machine-based traders is the many times markets fell just as hard, long before they existed. The Crash of 1929 is one big example. However bad this market is, it’s a walk in the park compared with then.

“The largest percentage changes, except for 1987, were in the ’20s and ’30s,” said Donald Selkin, chief market strategist at Newbridge Securities Corp. “You had dramatic moves then and you didn’t have electronic trading then.”

Dotcom Bust

The dot-com bubble that had been developing since the late 1990s popped in March 2000, when the S&P 500 lost 35 percent over the course of two months. It took the Nasdaq Composite Index, which peaked at 5,040.62 on March 10, about 15 years to get to its old high.

Black Monday of 1987

The S&P 500 rose 36 percent between January and August 1987 in what was set to be the best year in almost three decades. Then the October sell-off pushed the S&P into a 31 percent correction in a matter of 15 days, much of it occurring on that infamous day.

1974 Sell-Off

The worst year since 1937 for the S&P 500 saw the index fall 33 percent in 115 days as a weakening economy, rising unemployment and spiking inflation pushed investors to head for the exits. Stocks subsequently rebounded, surging more than 50 percent between October 1974 and July 1975.

1962 Rout

Investors of a certain age may recall 1962, when the S&P 500 Index lost a quarter of its value between March and June 1962. The rout known as the Kennedy Slide came after the S&P 500 advanced 79 percent in the prior four years. The S&P 500 was essentially flat over the next two decades.

Not So Fat ’57

A dive in car sales and slowing housing construction pushed stocks into a 20 percent correction in a matter of 99 days in 1957. This preceded a recession that saw the U.S. gross domestic product contract 10 percent in a matter of three months in 1958.

‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ Will Test the Franchise Like Nothing Before

Star Trek fans were surprised last week when it was announced that Rick and Morty head writer Mike McMahon will be creating a new show for the franchise. Titled Star Trek: Lower Decks, the show will focus on “the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships”. In a first for Star Trek, the show will be a half-hour comedy.

The nature of its premise will almost certainly make Lower Decks the most polarizing production in Star Trek history. More than that, it will test the limits of what the franchise can support — and what fans will accept — unlike anything that has come before it. Let’s take a look at why, and what it means for the future of Trek.

Star Trek Has Never Broken the Mould Like This Before


The reboots were bold, but they were still familiar.

It is true that there is a great deal of difference between the various incarnations of Star Trek. But it is also true that for all that difference, they are all essentially variations on the same themes and formats. Deep Space Nine is a little darker. Voyager and Enterprise are more action-heavy. The Next Generation is more cerebral. However, they all fit within the same mould. Even Star Trek’s previous foray into animation, way back in the 1970s, was an adventure series that bore great tonal similarities to the swashbuckling character of the original show.


‘The Animated Series’ was basically ‘TOS’ Season 4, not a comedy.

A pivot to comedy, then, is a first. Not because the franchise has never had funny moments, but because comedy has never been the defining characteristic of an entire corner of the franchise. If that isn’t enough, the premise is said to follow unimportant background characters — McMahon is quoted as saying he wants to make “a show about the people who put the yellow cartridge in the food replicator so a banana can come out the other end”. It will be the first time Star Trek has prioritized lower-ranking characters over captains and a bridge crew.

Incorporating a show that wildly diverges from the audience’s conception of Star Trek is a risky move. Imagine a sitcom released as part of the Law and Order franchise, or as a spinoff from The Walking Dead or Game of Thrones. That’s the gamble Star Trek is undertaking. It will demand more open-mindedness from the audience than anything before. And comedy brings with it some unique challenges.

Star Trek Usually Does One Kind of Comedy


Kirk and Spock
Kirk and Spock in “A Piece of the Action”.

Star Trek is replete with comedic episodes. TOS gave us “The Trouble with Tribbles” and “A Piece of the Action“. TNG, DS9, and Voyager gave us hilarious adventures on the holodeck. Enterprise had Trip get pregnant. Characters like Barclay, Rom, Neelix, Keenser, and Tilly often filled the role of “comic relief”. And, of course, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is a comedy through-and-through.

What that unites all of these examples is the nature of the comedy. Specifically, it’s humour that comes from taking something established as serious and subverting expectations. “The Trouble with Tribbles” is a serious story about politics, espionage, and a cold war. It is rendered hilarious because the plot is driven by cooing balls of fur. Holodeck adventures like “Our Man Bashir” are funny because the characters act nothing like themselves in a campy situation. In each case, there is a contrasting effect between the drama we normally see and the comedy we get in certain special cases.

Lower Decks, presumably, won’t be able to take the same approach, because it is first and foremost a comedy as opposed to a drama. You can’t subvert serious subject matter if the subject is not first and foremost treated as serious. Likewise, we can only hope that the show avoids the lazy route of simply parodying established Trek tropes, since, between Galaxy Quest and The Orville, enough of that already exists. Instead, Lower Decks will need to completely reimagine Star Trek through a comedic lens.

If This Works, Star Trek Will Never Be The Same


Star Trek Beyond

If audiences accept Lower Decks, the implications for the future are massive. Not all franchises have the flexibility to fit something as dark as Deep Space Nine or Discovery in alongside a pure comedy. If it works, Star Trek can conceivably tell any kind of story, in any kind of format, without losing its essence. It will transcend its previous status as a sci-fi action-drama and become, in some ways, a genre all its own.

Will every fan accept Lower Decks? No. There is no perfect consensus among Star Trek fans, and this project will probably be the most divisive one yet. But for the past ten years, Star Trek has courted controversy in both its films and TV, mostly successfully. The fact that Lower Decks has been greenlit only a year after the return to TV speaks volumes about Trek’s capacity to evolve and go where it has never gone before.

Star Trek: Lower Decks is currently in development at CBS All Access. Season Two of Star Trek: Discovery begins streaming January 17th, 2019.
