SNL actors (kinda) defend Trump, think he's smart and hard-working

2015-02-13-michaelchecolinjostB46A87783hp


Michael Che and Colin Jost were recently interviewed by Politico’s Glenn Thrush for his “Off Message” podcast. They had this to say about Donald Trump:

Michael Che: “Should he be president? No. You know, let’s not pretend that this guy is a mutant and he’s the most evil, racist, mutant piece of crap that ever walked. Listen, there’s probably somebody in your building way worse than Donald Trump, and you buy bagels from him, and it’s fine. You know what I mean?”

Colin Jost:
"It’s strange. [Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump] are both super smart people and super hardworking people."

Michael Che: “And you can’t deny that. That’s what bothers me, when people make it seem like, ‘You know what? I’m smarter than Donald Trump.’ Like no, you’re not, all right?”

More details on the Kardashian robbery attack





  • Kim Kardashian was staying at the Hôtel de Portals when five men dressed as police entered the hotel via the service entrance around 2:30 a.m. Despite the name, the building is not actually a hotel but a portered building which contains nine flats designed for multi-millionaires.

  • The robbers threatened the concierge with a weapon, handcuffed him and forced him to open the private apartment.

  • It is reported that Kim begged for her life and told the masked robbers that she has babies at home. The robbers tied Kim up - both her hands and feet were bound with tape - gagged her, and put her in the bathtub. A source told reporters, "she thought they were for sure going to kill her."

  • The men robbed her of two cellphones and approximately $10 million worth of jewelry, including a $4 million ring.

  • Kim's children, North, 3, and Saint, 9 months, were not involved in the incident.

  • Kourtney and Kendall were also not present (they were partying at a nightclub while the robbery happened). Kim's bodyguard accompanied them.

  • West abruptly ended his headlining set at Meadows Music & Arts Festival in Queens upon hearing the news about the robbery.

  • The ordeal has left Kim "badly shaken but physically unharmed".

  • Kim already gave her statement to the French investigators.

  • Kim, Kendall, Kourtney and Kris were in Paris for the fashion week. The family has since left the city in a private jet.

  • The Daily Fail has speculated that the "Pink Panther gang" might be behind the robbery.

  • The Pink Panthers are a loose network of 200 ex-soldier thieves from the Balkans region who are responsible for over US $500 million in gold and jewellery robberies in Dubai, Switzerland, Japan, France, Liechtenstein, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain and Monaco. They are known for their minimal violence approach and have been active for decades.

  • The gang may have monitored Kim's snapchat to find out what jewellery she was wearing.

  • Kim is now back in the US. She was greeted by her husband at an airport in New York.

  • It is reported that Kim "couldn't wait to leave Paris" and is just happy to be alive. A source said that "she has never been in a more frightening situation. She still can't believe it happened."

Nate Parker Doubles Down on Shittiness on GMA




He's basically complaining about how much he's had to talk about it and shows no self awareness by talking about how his film is about social injustice.





Robin Roberts: This is a very difficult but necessary conversation for a lot of people. Your reaction to those allegations of years ago. They just don't feel the empathy. They don't feel that you have any remorse.
Parker: Who are we talking about?
Roberts: What we're talking about is what happened in 1999 with the woman who is now deceased who took her own life, and her family and others fell that in seeing your comments resurface that -- Do you have any remorse? Apologize for any of what happened?
Nate Parker: Look, I was on 60 Minutes last night. We talked about it. I think the important thing is this isn't about me! You know the story of Nat Turner as an American, to know the story of a man who was erased from history, at some point that's what our focus should be. Especially now. So many things are happening in America especially in the last 72 hours. So the hope is that people get to know the real story of America that has been so shifted aside with revisionist history. This is a film that they should see.

Evan Rachel Wood Defends Westworld's Violent Rape Scenes

westworld_trailer_still



HBO's new scifi show Westworld has come under criticism for its graphic, repeated scenes of rape.

-The show is about a futuristic Wild West theme park like a real-life videogame.

-Evan Rachel Wood's character Dolores is a headstrong woman who loves to paint and daydream, until she sees her family murdered and she is raped. As a character in the game, Dolores is forced to live this reality every day over and over.

-The other female charcter is a prostitute who is also sexually assaulted repeatedly.

-The game robots can't harm humans, but humans can do whatever they want to the robots, including assaulting them.

-HBO's other shows like Game of Thrones show many rape scenes and scenes degrading women



ERJ defended the rape scenes in WW, saying


“You have an obligation as a storyteller to raise awareness and to show the horrors of that so that people aren’t desensitized to it. I don’t think there’s anything titillating about what we’re doing — it’s all horrific, as it should be."

“We don’t actually show sexual violence towards women. You never see a scene of like rape or anything, but you know it’s going to happen.”


How do you feel about this issue in film and media?

ONTD ORIGINAL: Celebrities who believe in conspiracy theories



Kylie Jenner - Chemtrails



What is the conspiracy about?

Chemtrail conspiracy theory is an unproven suspicion that long-lasting trails, so-called "chemtrails", are left in the sky by high-flying aircraft and that they consist of chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed for sinister purposes undisclosed to the general public. Believers in the theory argue that normal contrails dissipate relatively quickly and that contrails that do not dissipate must contain additional substances. Believers in the conspiracy theory also speculate that the purpose of the claimed chemical release may be solar radiation management, psychological manipulation, human population control, weather modification, or biological or chemical warfare and that the trails are causing respiratory illnesses and other health problems.


On May 25, 2015 Kylie Jenner uploaded a meme on her twitter questions chemtrails. Hopefully one day someone will give Kylie an answer to her questions .

Why could Kim Kardashian so easily be robbed in Paris?





  • To recap: Kim Kardashian was staying at the Hôtel de Portals when five men dressed as police entered the hotel via the service entrance around 2:30 a.m. Despite the name, the building is not actually a hotel but a portered building which contains nine flats designed for multi-millionaires.

  • The property is a historic private mansion that was converted into luxury apartments in 2010. The flats are highly popular among A-listers - stars like Madonna, Leonardo DiCaprio and Prince have all stayed there - and are only advertised through a word-of-mouth policy. Even the address has been kept secret for years (which is also why the building is referred to as the 'No Address Hotel').

  • Kanye West has maintained a semi-permanent residence in one of the flats for years.

  • The property is not visible from the street and can only be accessed via a private entrance in a courtyard or a car elevator.

  • The "security" consists of one concierge for the entire building

  • During the robbery, the concierge was threatened with a weapon, handcuffed and forced to open Kim's private apartment.

  • A former guest of the luxury apartments told reporters, "basically you bring your personnel with you, hence her poor security last night. It's basically a flat with one front desk concierge."

  • At the time of the robbery, Kourtney and Kendall were partying at a nightclub. Kim's bodyguard Pascal Duvier accompanied them.

  • Kim has since said that she doesn't blame her bodyguard for the security situation.
