5. Actual statement made by the so-called leader of the free world while in Japan to the man that is hosting him:
«I don’t know if it’s (Japan’s economy) as good as ours. I think not. OK? We’re going to try to keep it that way. And you’ll be 2nd.»

3. While en route to Asia, during a layover in Hawaii, Trump visited one of his properties, which — again — involves the unethical promotion of his personal business.

In an amusing turn, however, Trump was greeted with signs that read, «Welcome to Kenya.»
Holy crap! 😂😂😂

Trump was so upset about the "Welcome to Kenya" signs that he didn't even want to meet the President of Hawaii.

2. I guess no one told him that the largest Toyota plant in the world is in Kentucky. It employs more people than there are coal miners in West Virginia.

1. From the Japan Times:
Trump questioned Japan’s decision not to shoot down the missiles when he met or spoke by phone with leaders from Southeast Asian countries over recent months to discuss how to respond to the threats from North Korea, the sources said.
The U.S. president said he could not understand why a country of samurai warriors did not shoot down the missiles, the sources said.
Kate del Castillo is an actress who accompanied angry riverbed Sean Penn on his quest to meet and interview internationally infamous drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán. Sean’s reportedly trying to get Kate’s documentary about their trip (The Day I Met El Chapo: The Kate Del Castillo Story) taken off Netflix. The reason why? It might have something to do with Kate’s revelation to People that they were so horny after meeting El Chapo that they allegedly banged. Can you think of a more powerful aphrodisiac? Me neither.
Kate tells People:
“It was never a relationship. It was just business. And sex.”
In the doc, Kate reportedly tells a friend that she “fell” for liberal rage monster Sean Penn during their adventure together. This sounds like a Gloria Monty-era General Hospital plot, but Sean is making it even more dramatic by insinuating that people will be murdered if they learn he put that dusty Slim Jim to her.
The Mystic River star has taken issue with the documentary, which tells her side of the story behind the controversial meeting. The New York Times reported that a lawyer for Penn sent a letter to Netflix saying “that blood will be on their hands if this film causes bodily harm.”
And they didn’t end the drama there. Someone’s being “tawdry and transparent!”
Penn’s spokesman Mark Fabiani told PEOPLE, “This is not about one person’s safety. These producers are propagating false and reckless fabrications for their profit. This is nothing but a cheap, National Enquirer-esque tale spun by a delusional person whose hunger for fame is both tawdry and transparent.”
Sean and Kate met with the escaped El Chapo before his capture in October of 2015. Sean wrote about it for Rolling Stone in January of last year, which prompted a lot of “wait, why is Sean Penn the one meeting with murderous drug lords on the lam?” discussion.
Kate and El Chapo had been in contact since she tweeted about him in a positive way earlier in 2015.
Kate claims that Sean saw the documentary before its release but didn’t express his displeasure until it was too late. What does she want – he was probably busy ruining the reputations of more important actresses.
“He was not happy about it but he had the chance,” she says. “We reached out to him many times and he ignored us. Now he wants to be a part of it and it’s too late. I think he should do his own documentary of himself.”
The next time a former lover starts some static, look at him very plainly and quietly inform him that he “should do his own documentary of himself.” It’s an elegant way of saying “go fuck yourself.”
Girls Trip was the breakout comedy of the Summer — and the hilarious Tiffany Haddish, who plays Dina, was its breakout star. If you missed the movie in theaters (or just want to watch it again and again), now’s your chance to see it. To coincide with the home release, we have an exclusive clip of the blooper reel, which are outtakes of Haddish hilariously going off on Mike Epps in the streets of New Orleans. It’s a must watch, as is the movie, which is now available on Digital HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand.
Ryan Gosling made a hilarious return to Saturday Night Live last weekend when he hosted the season 43 premiere. And on Tuesday, the actor stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about bringing his girlfriend, Eva Mendes, and their two daughters, Amada and Esmeralda, along for the trip. Ryan revealed that after bringing Amada to the window to take in the Big Apple, she saw an unfortunate incident on the street below. «I said, ‘Sweetheart, welcome to New York.’ And two cars went smash,» Ryan said. Watch the video above to find out the hilariously inappropriate thing his little girl witnessed next.
It’s been over a month since
Salmon Slammin’ Sammy Sosa randomly appeared on ESPN and freaked out viewers who were unaware that he had morphed into a Pepto-Bismol Man. Since then, the former Cubs slugger has been MIA, probably trying to avoid more negative press on his ridiculous skin color.
But Slammin’ came out of hiding a couple days ago as he hit OralMed dental in Santo Domingo for a checkup. We’re assuming Sammy’s chompers are looking A-OK considering this pose he struck with the team:
A couple of days after that, White Sammy had a fun boys night with former MLB player Julio Lugo:
Vegas is trying to figure out what to do with esports
And that means Vegas casinos are trying to figure out how to get millennial nerds to blow their money in a resort. The problem is that these nerds don’t gamble. They like to have their heads firmly up the ass of video games.
But he said coming up with ways to attract millennials is a necessity for the casino industry as a whole, adding that esports players could be cultivated to embrace casinos for video game competitions the way their parents and grandparents went there to play slot machines.
Gambling requires discretionary income and free time, things that people starting their careers or families may not have in abundance, said David Schwartz, director of the Center for Gaming Research at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.
“The big question is whether people who are 40 or 20 now will begin to play casino games as they get older,” Schwartz said. “This isn’t a given.”
Bank on giant multi-million dollar tournaments to get these weirdos to drop a thousand or so for an entry fee.

Tiffany Haddish is making waves in Hollywood thanks to her role in the raunchy comedy, Girls Trip, and we have a feeling she’s about to blow up. Not only is the 37-year-old incredibly funny and talented, but she’s already made friends with Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. And not only that, but she even has a show coming up with Tracy Morgan. Here are five things you should know about the breakout star.
- She’s of Ethiopian Jewish descent. Her father is Ethiopian, though she didn’t meet him until she was an adult. During a radio appearance on The Breakfast Club in June, she revealed that she found him through her ex-husband, who is a detective, and he was able to walk her down the aisle before he passed away.
- She had a hard time growing up. Tiffany’s childhood was cut short at the age of 9 when her mom tragically passed away in a car accident. As a result, the actress lived in foster homes during her teenage years and was separated from her four siblings. «By the time I was 13 . . . we were split up and put in foster homes,» she wrote in a piece for Origin magazine in 2013. They eventually reunited when they moved to live with their grandmother.
Tiffany was also known for misbehaving in class. «[My] social worker got tired of coming to my school and said, ‘Tiffany, you have two choices this Summer: you can go to the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp or you can go to psychiatric therapy,'» she wrote. «I decided to go to comedy camp. The Laugh Factory gave me a voice and an outlet for my pain. I would not realize how much I needed comedy until many years later.»
- She’s single. While not much is known about her previous relationship, Tiffany was married for five years before she got divorced in 2013. «I gave everything I had. It just felt like I was back to that 9-year-old not being good enough, not being able to do enough,» Tiffany said on The Breakfast Club. «I was not going to allow my dreams to shut down. I was not going to allow no man to shut down this dream I have because it keeps coming to me. God keeps telling me, ‘You got to do this. You gotta share your story. You gotta spread this joy, you gotta spread love.'»
- There’s a good chance you’ve seen her before. While Girls Trip might be her biggest project to date, Tiffany appeared in 2016’s Keanu as Hi-C and has played Nekeisha on The Carmichael Show since 2015. She’s also had smaller roles on shows like Real Housewives of Hollywood, The Game, and Secret Girlfriend.
- She took Will and Jada Pinkett Smith on a Groupon swamp tour. To make matters even better, Tiffany was high the entire time. During a stop on the Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actress talked about their amazing adventure, saying, «They loved it. They were so happy I brought them around regular people.»
- She’s only just getting started. Not only does she have her own stand-up comedy special, Tiffany Haddish: She Ready!, premiering on Showtime on August 18, but she also has a new comedy series coming up on TBS with Tracy Morgan called The Last O.G.
I didn’t know what to expect from Girls Trip going in; I really liked the last two films from Malcolm Lee (sequels to Barbershop and The Best Man), but both were somewhat conservative in their comedic approaches. There’s nothing conservative about Girls Trip, however. It out-raunches the raunchiest of Apatow’s comedies, and it manages in the end to deliver just as much, if not more heart (as the only dude in the audience of my screening, I found myself fighting back tears during the rousing climactic speech).
There’s not anything particularly original or novel about Girl’s Trip — it’s about four long-time friends from college who now have now have disparate lives who get together in for a weekend of debauchery in New Orleans — but there’s so much chemistry between the cast and so much enthusiasm in their approach to the material that they manage to sell a lot of jokes that wouldn’t otherwise work in a typical gross-out comedy. There are a few moments, in fact, that elicit uncontrollable laughter that have nothing to do with the script and everything to do with the performances of these four women who manage to sell nearly every single joke.
Girls Trip centers on Ryan Pierce (Regina Hall), a self-help guru who — along with her husband, Stewart (Mike Colter) — «has it all,» the perfect marriage and the successful career. Ahead of an announcement that Ryan and Stewart are about to get their own talk show, Ryan decides to get her old friends together for a big weekend in New Orleans. There’s Lisa (Jada Pinkett Smith), a Type A mom with control issues; Sasha (Queen Latifah), a journalist struggling to keep her gossip website afloat; and Dina (Tiffany Haddish), a career screw-up whose primarily role in life seems to playing the life of the party. Of course, Ryan’s marriage isn’t as perfect as the public thinks; her husband is cheating on her with an Instagram model, and she has to keep the perception of her perfect life intact even as her marriage has transformed into a business partnership. That’s where her friends come in to provide support and alcohol.
It’s a fairly basic set up, but Dear God, the way these characters fill in the spaces is ungodly funny. Jada Pinkett Smith is a huge surprise here, if only because her character is so at odds with what we think of Pinkett-Smith. She gets involved with a guy half her age with a giant dick and extracts more laughs out of that scenario that you might imagine. There’s also a scene where she straight-up urinates all over a New Orleans’ crowd from a zip line that will put audiences in stitches.
The MVP of Girls Trip, however, is Tiffany Haddish (who went viral last week with a story she told about Will and Jade on Jimmy Kimmell). This should be a huge break-out role for her, and she is so insanely funny that she’ll send you into a rabbit hole of YouTube videos from her stand-up routines after the movie. If there’s any justice in this world, she should be the next Jennifer Lawrence or Amy Schumer, and she and Deon Cole should be the new faces of romantic comedies.
There’s have been have been a couple of high-profile comedic failures from female casts in 2017 (Rough Night and Snatched), but both of those films thought they could succeed merely by hiring funny women and putting them in the same room. I mean, I love Kate McKinnon, but there’s no actress that’s called upon more right now to manufacture comedy out of nothing that McKinnon, as if the director is saying, «Do a funny accent and just be funny» without providing her with proper material to support her performances. Girls Trip puts the cast in situations ripe for comedy — a 10-minute sequence involving absinthe, hallucinations, and Queen Latifah fucking a lamp is the funniest sequence of 2017 — and they take full advantage, elevating material with hilarious (and often filthy) performances without needing to manufacture it from thin air. Girls Night is wild, and wildly fun, and while all the character tropes are familiar, Hall, Pinkett-Smith, Queen Latifah and Tiffany Haddish manage through chemistry and will to make them feel new and fresh and in the end, still sell a heart-warming and crowd-pleasing finale that makes it the funniest, raunchiest comedy I’ve seen in a very long time.
THE QUEEN was in Scotland this week and on her itinerary was a little kiki with Canadian panty creamer extraordinaire Justin Trudeau as well as a visit to Stirling Castle. My guess is that THE QUEEN visited Stirling Castle first and I’m only saying that because she wouldn’t be able to visit any castle if she had met up with Trudeau beforehand. She’d be unable to walk due to being laid out on a velvet settee with a serious case of the vapors.
While sashaying into Stirling Castle, THE QUEEN was met by an uncouth Shetland pony (“More like Shitland pony.” – THE QUEEN, probably) who shamelessly tried to steal her flowers. The common thief, we’ll call Lindsay LoPony, nibbled on THE QUEEN’s bouquet (that sounded wrong) and she hit that crook back with some sass. She pulled her flowers back and told the pony to go away and then she pet the pony’s nose. And I’m sure that she also whispered to one of her minions, “Send that pony to the worst glue factory in Scotland!”
And honestly, that pony is probably a Morrissey fan. Look at that hair. That pony’s totally emo.
