Seth Meyers: Jim Jordan and Republicans ‘Embarrassed Themselves’ at Cohen Hearing

Nine hours of testimony from Michael Cohen meant an extra long “A Closer Look” from Seth Meyers Wednesday night. The Late Night host spent more than 15 minutes going deep on the hearing, beginning with GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz’s blatant threats against Cohen the night before.

“I didn’t think anyone could out-sleaze Donald Trump, but you did it, my friend,” Meyers told Gaetz. “You are trying to intimidate a witness on Twitter. What’s next, are you going to Instagram a picture of a brick with the caption, ‘About to throw this through your window?’”

Moving on to Cohen’s testimony itself, Meyers played a highlight reel from the former Trump fixer’s opening statement before noting, “Damn, he just listed off a bunch of alleged crimes committed by the president on national TV. You know it’s so ironic, Trump finally went to Vietnam and he’s getting killed back home.”

Butterflies look for themselves when picking partners

Love is a strange thing. Everyone can come up with at least a brief list of things they find attractive in a mate, but sometimes we find ourselves drawn to people for totally unexplainable reasons.

Butterflies know exactly what they’re looking for in a partner: Themselves

law of attraction

Love is a strange thing. Everyone can come up with at least a brief list of things they find attractive in a mate, but sometimes we find ourselves drawn to people for totally explainable reasons. But the same isn’t necessarily true for other members of the animal kingdom, and butterflies, for example, seem to have streamlined things quite a bit.

Authors of a new research paper published in PLOS took a close look at Colombian butterflies in order to get a better idea of how they choose who to reproduce with. What they found was that when it comes to the search for a mate, butterflies are really just looking for themselves.

EMPLOYMENT SEARCH UPDATE:

South Korean cabbies are lighting themselves on fire in protest of a ride-sharing app

Taxi protest

It’s no surprise that taxi drivers aren’t exactly the world’s biggest fans of ride-sharing apps that offer customers cheap fares and the convenience of hailing a ride with just a few taps of a screen — services that have gone on to eat a big chunk out of the industry as a whole around the world. Still, every now and then the intensity of opposition from the taxi industry can surprise you — and, in the case of recent protests in South Korea, downright shock you with the extreme measures that some cabbies are taking to let their feelings be known.

Tens of thousands of taxi drivers in the capital city of Seoul have been protesting for months now against the launch of the ride-sharing service Kakao T Carpool, an Uber-like app the drivers say would exacerbate their already meager standard of living. Some protesters are even taking things so far that they’re committing suicide, by setting themselves on fire.

Mindy Kaling says people have trouble with “women who don’t hate themselves,” and it’s a sad truth

Mindy Kaling says people have trouble with “women who don’t hate themselves,” and it’s a sad truth


Mindy Kaling says people have trouble with “women who don’t hate themselves,” and it’s a sad truth

There’s no denying that Mindy Kaling is goals—she’s a show runner, actress, and best-selling author, and she seems to genuinely love the skin she’s in. Which—as she noted in a recent speech—isn’t always easy, or even encouraged, among women. During Glamour’s 2018 Women of the Year Summit on November 11th, the Mindy Project star noted that some people are “turned off” by her confidence.

“It’s not that I’m into myself,” she said. “It’s that I don’t hate myself. In my career, a lot of people have a problem with being around women who don’t hate themselves. Never hate yourself.”

We are so here for Kaling’s observation. Women are still socialized to downplay their accomplishments, to apologize before contributing in meetings, and to generally take up as little space in a room or situation as possible. And when they don’t? They’re hit with labels like “conceited,” “arrogant,” and, yes, “bitchy.” And it has got to stop.

Kaling’s advice for women looking to build their confidence and make their dreams come true is to always feel prepared. “I always just did the legwork, and it meant I never came to anything unprepared. The only reason I was able to be confident was because I literally couldn’t not be confident with the amount of research and preparation I did.”

Thank you for your wisdom, Mindy. We’re taking note.
