Stephen Colbert calls out Trump allies' attempts to discredit witness to the Ukraine phone call

Image
The Late Show's Stephen Colbert has unpacked the efforts of Donald Trump and his allies, who are seeking to discredit the testimony of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, first-hand witness to the president's phone call with President Zelenskiy of Ukraine. Vindman oversees Ukraine policy at the White House as a member of the National Security Council (NSC), and testified in the impeachment inquiry against Trump, as having heard the call first-hand from the Situation Room on July 25.Trump's allies have not only attacked Vindman's character and questioned his patriotism (even though he's a decorated U.S. lieutenant colonel), but as Colbert pointed out, Vindman's testimony contradicts that of Gordon Sondland, ambassador to the European Union, who told House investigators that "no one had raised concerns" about the president's actions.

Another Kanye West interview, another slew of comments that really haven't gone down well.In the clip above, which was shot between scenes on The Daily Show, Trevor Noah breaks down West's recent remarks on BigBoyTV about Democrats brainwashing black Americans voters. "What is more likely?" asks Noah. "The fact that these people are brainwashed, or the fact that in America, you have to vote for the system that gives you the best chance?"You only have two choices, and that does make it weird.

Ewan McGregor says the 'Doctor Sleep' ending should satisfy both King and Kubrick fans

Image
Movies very rarely please everybody, but it sounds like Doctor Sleep director Mike Flanagan may have come pretty close.As lead actor Ewan McGregor explains in the clip above, Stanley Kubrick's iconic adaptation of The Shining was a movie which Stephen King famously didn't like — but the sequel (which is also based on a book by King) is a different story entirely."Mike managed to make this sequel, and my only concern about it was how are you gonna please both of these camps?" McGregor told Jimmy Kimmel on Tuesday."But he does it very cleverly and very beautifully... he does something brilliant with the ending of our film that will appease the Stephen King fans who were aggrieved with Kubrick."

Stop what you're doing and look at this guy's Pixar lamp Halloween costume

Image
After Josh Sundquist lost his leg to childhood cancer, he went on to do, well... pretty much everything? He became a Paralympic ski racer, a motivational speaker, and a comedian. He also happens to be a top-notch Halloween costume architect. This year, Sundquist dressed up as the thing you usually see right before you're about to watch an animated movie and cry for 90 minutes: The Pixar lamp — perhaps our greatest source of light in this dark, dark world.In a video posted on his YouTube channel, you can see how Sundquist crafted his de-light-ful costume and view a montage of his incredible costumes of years' past, including a partially eaten gingerbread man, a flamingo, an iHop sign, and a Dairy Queen Blizzard.

Rainn Wilson recalls an early scene in 'The Office' that's so funny the cast fully broke

Anyone who's watched The Office knows that it's funny as hell — so funny that sometimes the actors couldn't even make it through a scene without breaking character to laugh.One of those unbearably comical scenes took place in the third episode of the series, titled "Health Care," where viewers find Dunder Mifflin Scranton in utter chaos after Michael asks Dwight to choose a health care plan with fewer benefits for his fellow employees.On the latest episode of the Office Ladies podcast, Jenna Fisher and Angela Kinsey dish on all things "Health Care" and welcome special guest, Rainn Wilson (Dwight K. Schrute,) who reveals three words that the cast couldn't stop laughing over while filming: "Hot dog fingers." Read more...

What will Black Friday 2019 at Walmart look like? Here's what we expect.

Image
What is Black Friday without Walmart? Half of the Black Friday GIFs on Giphy (you know, the ones that let you watch someone get absolutely body checked on a loop) probably take place at Walmart, and that's because its Black Friday sales are some of the best every year. According to a Cyber Week 2019 survey conducted by BlackFriday.com, Walmart's Black Friday ad scan is the second-most anticipated ad scan losing only to Amazon. (Walmart also does free two-day and next-day shipping, BTW.)Despite Walmart crowning itself "America's Best Toy Shop," its Black Friday deals will undoubtedly go far past Paw Patrol and that shark that, surprise, sings Baby Shark.

$70,000 iPhone 11 Pro has a gold-encrusted watch on the back

Image
So you saved some money and are looking for a phone. Good. Here's one that costs $70,000. Coming from Caviar, known for lavish iPhone makeovers, the new iPhone 11 Pro Discovery Solarius is as over-the-top as it gets. Its creation required half a kilogram of gold and 137 diamonds, says Caviar. On the back, nested in the middle of all that bling, is a luxury watch, complete with a tourbillon (one of the most expensive add-ons a timepiece can have). And within the watch face, there's a special, yellow diamond (or sun stone), which I presume is also very expensive. The entire thing is meant to "symbolize the eternal life that Sun gives to our planet," but let's face it, the kind of person who would buy this sort of thing probably isn't interested in the symbolism.  Read more...
