  • 11 Stars Who Imagined Violence Against Donald Trump, From Kathy Griffin to Johnny Depp

    Mickey Rourke said he would "love 30 seconds in a room with the little bitch." Rourke has also expressed a desire to "give [Trump] a Louisville slugger." Larry Wilmore In late February 2016, the host of Comedy Central's now-canceled "The Nightly Show" joked about then-candidate Donald Trump: “I don’t want to give him any more oxygen. That’s not a euphemism, by the way. I mean it literally. Somebody get me the pillow they used to kill [Supreme Court Justice Antonin] Scalia and I’ll do it — I’ll do it!" George Lopez During the Republican primaries in March 2016, the Mexican...

    NEW DELHI (AP) -- India has reported three cases of the Zika virus for the first time, including two pregnant women who delivered healthy babies. Health Ministry officials said Sunday that the three patients in western Gujarat state had recovered. "There is no need to panic," Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, a top health ministry official, told reporters. The World Health Organization said in a statement released Friday that the three cases that India reported to the WHO on May 15 were detected through routine blood surveillance in a hospital in Ahmadabad, Gujarat's capital. Two cases were detected in February and November...

    Zbigniew Brzezinski, the hawkish strategic theorist who was national security adviser to President Jimmy Carter in the tumultuous years of the Iran hostage crisis and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in the late 1970s, died on Friday at a hospital in Virginia. He was 89. His death, at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, was announced on Friday by his daughter, Mika Brzezinski, a co-host of the MSNBC program “Morning Joe.” Like his predecessor Henry A. Kissinger, Mr. Brzezinski was a foreign-born scholar (he in Poland, Mr. Kissinger in Germany) with considerable influence in global affairs, both before and long...

    Report: Cash-strapped UN health agency spends about $200 million a year on travel LONDON -- The World Health Organization routinely spends about $200 million a year on travel -- far more than what it doles out to fight some of the biggest problems in public health including AIDS, tuberculosis or malaria, according to internal documents obtained by The Associated Press. As the cash-strapped U.N. health agency pleads for more money to fund its responses to health crises worldwide, it has also been struggling to get its own travel costs under control. Despite introducing new rules to try to curb its...

    More than a decade ago, actress Allison Janney played White House press secretary C.J. Cregg on the NBC drama The West Wing. So it's not shocking that Samantha Bee borrowed that character for the opening skit of her "Not the Correspondents' Dinner" special on TBS on Saturday night. In this skit, Janney ripped into a cartoonish right-wing media full of urine-drinkers, teenage Breitbart staffers, and redneck uncle bloggers. JANNEY: Yes? You're 18 in your father's suit, obviously from Breitbart. TEENAGER: Yeah. Doesn't having a female host for this dinner demonstrate a clear anti-white male bias? [Fist-bumps another white guy.] JANNEY:...

    Mathematical model of a 'TARDIS' takes the 'fiction' out of science fiction Summary: After some serious number crunching, a researcher says that he has come up with a mathematical model for a viable time machine: a Traversable Acausal Retrograde Domain in Space-time (TARDIS). He describes it as a bubble of space-time geometry which carries its contents backward and forwards through space and time as it tours a large circular path. The bubble moves through space-time at speeds greater than the speed of light at times, allowing it to move backward in time.

    Actress Patricia Arquette, an outspoken critic of President Trump, says climate change is the one issue really keeping her up at night. It's "something we can't turn back the clock on," Arquette said Monday night in Washington, D.C. “Dismantling the [Environmental Protection Agency] and rolling back all these climate regulations … we’re going to pay a huge price for that." “I’m concerned with legislation, but I at least hope we can change that again. But as far as climate change, there’s no negotiating the devastating effects of disregard and destruction at that level,” she added. Arquette was one of four...

    The new series of Doctor Who will see the Time Lord joined by his first openly gay companion. Bill Potts's sexuality will be revealed pretty much straightaway in her second line of dialogue when the show returns to BBC One on 15 April. "It shouldn't be a big deal in the 21st Century. It's about time isn't it?" Pearl Mackie, who plays Bill, told the BBC. "That representation is important, especially on a mainstream show." She added: "It's important to say people are gay, people are black - there are also aliens in the world as well so watch out...

    Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren is not coming back to The Blaze, where she hosted a daily show on the conservative website's network. The decision, outlined in a published report, to permanently pull her comes less than a week after The Blaze suspended her without providing a reason. Lahren ignited anger from some conservatives for saying on "The View" that she believes in abortion rights and calling conservatives hypocrites.

    Just in time to go get his next NFL contract, Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest is done. On Thursday morning, according to ESPN, Kaepernick, who spent all of last season kneeling during the national anthem in a polarizing and impactful protest of police brutality and minority oppression, is suddenly done kneeling. "Kaepernick no longer wants the past method of protest to detract from the positive change that he believes has been created, per sources," ESPN's Adam Schefter wrote.

    If there’s any doubt left that we live in divisive political times, know this: Some fans of Harry Potter are burning their copies of the books to protest author J.K. Rowling’s views of the U.S. president. And she’s fighting back on Twitter, insulting those very fans. That’s right, one of the most beloved series of books in modern history has now become a political prop. Is nothing safe? (TWEETS-AT-LINK) Rowling has been vocal about her feelings concerning President Trump for some time. She has mostly used Trump’s favorite platform, Twitter, to share her criticisms....

    About 40 potential vaccines for the Zika virus are being tested, but none are likely to be available for women of childbearing age before 2020, the World Health Organization said on Wednesday. WHO director Margaret Chan said the virus, linked to deformations in babies’ heads and brains, remained “firmly entrenched” in large parts of the world. Although progress toward effective prevention has been made, with some drugs now in clinical trials, “a vaccine judged safe enough for use in women of childbearing age may not be fully licensed before 2020,” Chan said. …

    Denmark’s development minister, Ulla Tørnæs, has expressed her disappointment in the Trump administration’s decision to reinstate a ban on US funding to health groups around the world that provide information about abortion. Following Trump’s move to reinstate what is formally known as the “Mexico City Policy” but more popularly described as the “global gag rule”, Tørnæs said that Denmark will not waver in its commitment to women’s rights and the belief that women should be allowed to choose what they do with their own bodies.

    Syrian state TV showed footage of ambulances and a long line of green buses leaving eastern Aleppo. BBC producer Riam Dalati says the first convoy has now arrived at a "handover point" in rebel-held areas to the west. Russia's defence ministry has said buses are taking the injured, civilians and rebel fighters to the neighbouring province of Idlib, most of which is controlled by a powerful rebel alliance that includes the jihadist group Jabhat Fateh al-Sham. The chief of the Russian military's General Staff, Gen Valery Gerasimov, told a news briefing: "A humanitarian corridor has been created for the evacuation...

    Single men and women without medical issues will be classed as “infertile” if they do not have children but want to become a parent, the World Health Organisation is to announce. In a move which dramatically changes the definition of infertility, the WHO will declare that it should no longer be regarded as simply a medical condition. The authors of the new global standards said the revised definition gave every individual “the right to reproduce”.

    There is grumbling in progressive circles over polls showing that Orthodox Jews will vote for Trump. Among non-Orthodox Jews, Hillary beats Trump by 66 to 23 percent. Among the Orthodox, Trump beats her 66 to 22 percent. In New York, Hillary scores 61 to 19 percent among Jews, but among Orthodox Jews, Trump wins 50% of the vote while Hillary lags at 21%. It’s no wonder then that Jewish Democrats for Trump is largely targeting Orthodox Jewish voters. Why Orthodox Jews? It might be tempting to attribute this support to Trump’s daughter having converted to Orthodox Judaism, but these same...
