President Trump Says Nike’s Colin Kaepernick Ad Sends a ‘Terrible Message’

President Donald Trump said Nike‘s decision to feature Colin Kaepernick as the face of its new “Just Do It” ad campaign sends a “terrible message.”

“I think it’s a terrible message,” Trump told conservative news site The Daily Caller. “Nike is a tenant of mine. They pay a lot of rent.”

Trump was referring to Niketown, Nike’s current flagship store in New York City. The company previously announced plans to close down the location and open a different flagship store in the city.

Trump also added: “In another way, it is what this country is all about, that you have certain freedoms to do things that other people think you shouldn’t do, but I personally am on a different side of it.”

Trump’s comments on Tuesday come after Nike revealed Kaepernick in its new “Just Do It” campaign. Kaepernick, who became the symbol of NFL protests after kneeling during the national anthem two years ago, tweeted an image from the campaign with the slogan, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything,” on Monday.

Kaepernick is not currently signed with any NFL team and has filed a grievance claiming the league’s owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his protests. His kneeling during the National Anthem in protest of police brutality and racial injustice sparked a wave of protests from several other NFL players. Some players have knelt during the anthem, others have held up a first – commonly considered a symbol of black power.

The NFL protests have become a polarizing topic, with Trump repeatedly speaking out against players who kneel during the national anthem, including calling for them to be fired. He has also feuded with Kaepernick, claiming that the NFL’s declining ratings were due to the quarterback’s kneeling protests.

Giant ‘Plant from Hell’ sends 17-year-old to the hospital with third-degree burns

giant hogweed

The Giant Hogweed is a terrible, no-good, dangerous plant. It also happens to be spreading across the United States with shocking speed, and just touching can totally mess you up. A 17-year-old boy from Virginia named Alex Childress learned that in the absolute worst way possible, and now he’s dealing with severe burns and likely a lifetime of significant scarring.

Childress was reportedly doing a bit of summer gardening when he came across one of the large plants and promptly chopped it down, unknowingly getting some of the plant’s dangerous sap on one side of his face as well as his arm. Nothing happened at first — that’s what makes the plant so incredibly brutal — but that would change.

76-year old man sends thank-you letter to Tim Cook after the Apple Watch helped save his life

Apple Watch

Apple may have initially positioned the Apple Watch as something of a fashion accessory, but it’s become apparent in the years since its release that most users are drawn to the device for its fitness and health tracking capabilities. In turn, one of the more interesting aspects of the Apple Watch is that there are a growing number of stories involving Apple’s wearable actually saving lives.

Last October, for example, an Apple Watch wearer named James Green received a notification that his heart rate was abnormal. Upon going to the hospital to get things checked out, doctors discovered a pulmonary embolism, a condition that could have proven to be fatal if James didn’t seek immediate medical attention.

‘The Death of Stalin’ Review: Creator of ‘Veep’ Sends Up Russian History

What is The Death of Stalin?

Set in Moscow in 1953, The Death of Stalin kicks off with the Russian leader falling ill, and revolves around his core team of ministers jockeying for position while also desperately trying to not get killed. And when Stalin himself does indeed die, the search is on for who will take charge of the country and fill his sizeable shoes.

Period Piece That Feels Contemporary

Armando Iannucci is a brilliant satirist, first taking down the media in The Day Today and via Alan Partridge. Then taking on British politics through The Thick of It and In the Loop. And more recently setting his sites on America with Veep. But the stories he has told have largely been contemporary. Or at least about very recent history.

Wth The Death of Stalin, he’s travelling to the past, where gulags, firing squads, and political imprisonment and murder were all the rage. But in spite of this being a period piece, the humour is still very much the same, with Iannucci using dumb misunderstandings, bureaucratic mix-ups, and masterful word-play to make those in power look like clowns.

He’s also assembled a fantastic cast to play the historical figures in question. Steve Buscemi is terrific as Krushchev, Jeffrey Tambor’s Malenkov has much in common with Hank from Larry Sanders, and esteemed stage actor Simon Russell Beale is marvellously unpleasant as Beria, frequently the villain of the piece. Rupert Friend and Andrea Riseborough meanhwhile, play Stalin’s troubled kids as spoilt, unhinged and somewhat terrifying brats; and in doing so raise plenty of laughs.

Rather than attempting Russian accents, the cast speak in their own voices, or something close, which oftentimes adds to the humour. Most notably Adrian McLouchlin’s cockney Joseph Stalin, and Jeremy Isaac’s very northern Georgy Zhukov, the character sounding less like a Russian general and more like legendary football manager Brian Clough (he of The Damned United fame).


In The Death of Stalin, the Russian’s funeral is played for laughs.

Race to the Top

The bulk of the film’s comedy is fuelled by paranoia and fear. Stalin ruled his people with an iron fist, and so when he becomes incapacitated, and his committee is forced to convene, no one wants to take responsibility for any kind of decision, preferring instead to act collectively in hilariously staged meetings.

His health declines thanks to all the qualified doctors being locked up, and then he dies, precipitating outpourings of grief from the members of his Government. None of it even remotely real.

But with the position at the top becoming open, proceedings take a more serious turn, as committee members jockey, double-cross, and stab each other in the back to replace Stalin as the Russian leader. Rumours, whispers and lies echo around Moscow. And here Buscemi comes to the fore, his Kruschev transforming from something of an idiot (just check out those pyjamas, or his body-slam with Beria) into a bona fide dictator. It’s a subtle but very effective performance.

Michael Palin is also worthy of mention, playing Vyacheslav Molotov with a combination of innocence, confusion, and raw ambition. It’s one of his finest comedic turns since the days of Monty Python. And it comes in a film that’s clearly influenced by the likes of Holy Grail and Life of Brian, taking real and sometimes dark historical truths, and finding the blackest of humour in them. So you’ll be shaking your head as you laugh at the awful things that are being said and done. But you’ll be laughing nevertheless.


The cast is a brilliant ensemble that combines comedians with dramatic actors.

Is The Death of Stalin Good?

They say that comedy is tragedy plus time, and that’s certainly the case when it comes to The Death of Stalin. Armando Iannucci is brilliant at this form of satire, his film attacking the corrupting influence of power, while at the same time poking fun at it.

That combination harks back to the best of Mel Brooks, with a little of Woody Allen’s historical comedies thrown in for good measure. It also calls to mind Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove, most obviously when the committee is together and making terrible decisions for all the wrong reasons.

The script that Iannucci and collaborators David Schnieder, Ian Martin and Peter Fellows have written — itself based on the comic books of the same name by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin — is beautifully crafted, working as both farce AND history lesson. And the bizarre combination of actors and accents onscreen really make the material sing, resulting in one of the funniest films of the year; about a subject that seems anything but.

The Death of Stalin screened at Fantastic Fest and will hit UK screens on October 20.

Anna Faris sends a heartfelt message to fans following her split from Chris Pratt

And it’s pretty emotional.

chris pratt anna faris

It was announced last week that Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are separating, with the couple confirming their divorce after eight years of marriage.

The actors, who share a four-year-old son together, took to their social media pages last week to issue a joint statement, breaking the news to their fans and followers.

‘We are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed.’

The statement continued: ‘Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward.’

Rex

Both Chris and Anna have remained quiet since the news broke, keeping relatively low profiles, but with one of the 40-year-old actress’ podcast episodes airing today, Anna took the opportunity to speak out to her fans.

While the podcast episodes are pre-taped, with this episode featuring Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, Anna added a recording to the start of this week’s episode to thank her fans and friends for their support and love.

‘Hey dear listeners, I just want to thank you all so much for all the love I’ve been receiving,’ she opened the podcast. ‘I truly love you.’

This week also saw Chris Pratt speak out publicly for the first time since the split, attending the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday and accepting the Sci-Fi Movie Actor award for his role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. 

‘Wow, thank you! I love you too,’ he announced to the crowd after being presented the award by Stranger Things actress Mille Bobby Brown. ‘Thank you.’

Joe Biden Sends Adorable National Teacher’s Day Tweet About Jill Biden

Former Vice President Joe Biden is a national treasure and his Twitter presence only solidifies that fact.

In a Tuesday afternoon tweet, Biden sent out a message about National Teacher’s Day and dedicated it to someone who “inspires [him] every day” ― his wife, Dr. Jill Biden.

Dr. Jill Biden is an educator with a massive range of accomplishments. Those include teaching English to adolescents at a psychiatric hospital, being a professor of English at Northern Virginia Community College, and earning two master’s degrees as well as a doctorate in education from the University of Delaware.

Outside of her husband’s endorsement, proof that Dr. Biden is a passionate teacher can be found in the knowledge that when Joe Biden entered the White House as Vice President, she insisted on keeping her job as an educator.

Joe and Jill Biden will celebrate their forty year-anniversary together next month.

Sean Spicer Sends Distress Signal To America With Upside-Down Flag Pin

During Friday’s White House press conference, Sean Spicer sent Twitter into a frenzy when he wore his American flag pin upside down. Though Spicer’s unfortunate move was likely accidental, an upside-down American flag is an officially recognized sign of distress.

Almost immediately, everyone on Twitter began making the same joke about what kind of signal Spicer was trying to send. 

The upside-down flag was recently used in a promotion for the next season of “House of Cards,” so of course the Netflix show tweeted about Spicer’s mishap: 

Spicer’s error was flagged down during the press conference and he quickly fixed it. According to Yahoo White House correspondent Hunter Walker, Omarosa Manigault reportedly passed Spicer a note about the error. 

We know Melissa McCarthy and the “Saturday Night Live” writers are just loving this new material.
