Curt Schilling Defends Milo Before Learning What Actually Happened

1 hour ago

Former baseball star-turned-conservative commentator Curt Schilling is apologizing after a botched attempt to defend disgraced alt-right icon and (for now, at least) Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos on Twitter. Schilling is well-known for ludicrous political commentary, like suggesting journalists should be lynched. But he’s now (voluntarily) eating crow after learning just what it is that has critics so upset with Yiannopoulos.

‘Big Little Lies': Who’s Dead and Who’s the Murderer? (Photos)

4 hours ago

The central plot of HBO’s “Big Little Lies” revolves around someone’s murder, but the show plays coy with the details, including the identities of both the murder and their victim. The series is a fairly straightforward adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s novel, but for those who haven’t read the book, here’s a rundown of the possible scenarios. Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) Why she might be dead: It would be pretty surprising if any of the three main women turned out to be the victim, but Madeline clearly isn’t afraid to make enemies. Who probably killed her: »

Ann Coulter on Milo Meltdown: ‘Pederasty Acceptable Only for Refugees and Illegals’

5 hours ago

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter has made an entire career out of saying shocking, deliberately offensive things in response to public controversies. So she did today when she weighed in on the career meltdown of Breitbart Editor and fellow conservative Milo Yiannopoulos in terms calculated for maximum outrage. Coulter’s tweet comes after video emerged over the weekend in which Yiannopoulos defended pedophiliac behavior at length, referred to people as young as 13 as “sexually mature,” and joked that his own experience as a victim of molestation made him good at oral sex.

Milo and Potus: Trump Threatened to De-Fund Uc Berkeley for Yiannopoulos, But He’s Awfully Quiet Today

5 hours ago

Earlier this month, when Uc Berkeley canceled a planned speech by Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, President Donald Trump quickly responded by threatening to cut Berkeley’s federal funds. But on Monday, after Yiannopoulos’ comments about pedophilia cost him a book deal with Simon & Schuster and a high-profile speaking gig at this week’s Conservative Poliitcal Action Conference, Trump had nothing to say.

How does time travel work? “Travelers” has only slowly dished out information about one key element: Its time travel. It appears that altering the present has changed the future, but the Traveler team doesn’t remember any changes. That seems to suggest they’re from a separate »

Gamblers Think Trump’s a Goner: 75 Percent Bet He Won’t Finish First Term (Exclusive)

8 hours ago

When Las Vegas sets a betting line, the intention is to get half of the money on one side and half on the other.

About 75 percent of the money currently being wagered with the sportsbook is on Trump not lasting a full term as Potus, TheWrap has learned. “Compared to a regular sport, tying up your money for potentially four years is not that appealing to the average bettor,” Kevin Bradley, Bovada.lv Sportsbook manager told TheWrap.

Milo Yiannopoulos Book Dropped by Simon & Schuster

9 hours ago

Conservative firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos’ book “Dangerous” won’t be coming out — at least not via Simon & Schuster. “After careful consideration, Simon & Schuster and its Threshold Editions imprint have canceled publication of ‘Dangerous’ by Milo Yiannopoulos,” a spokeswoman for the publisher told TheWrap on Monday. The decision comes after several controversial comments from the Breitbart editor surfaced over the weekend. The book was to be released next month.

Future of Nick Cannon’s ‘Caught on Camera’ Up in the Air at NBC

9 hours ago

Nick Cannon swears he’s not returning to “America’s Got Talent,” contract be damned, but what about his other NBC show? The future of “Caught on Camera With Nick Cannon” is still undecided at the network level, TheWrap has learned. And even if the multi-hyphenate isn’t currently burning his bridge with NBC executives, the economics of more episodes may not work out. That’s not necessarily because of how much third-year series “Caught on Camera” costs — any first-year Accounting major knows strong revenue can offset some bills. Unfortunately, the plug-and-play series has managed just a 0.7 Nielsen rating among adults 18-49 thus. »

These two made a Hurt Bae video about the most serious type of cheating — eating without each other. The disrespect is just too real.

This pair reenacted the video and showed what was probably a more realistic approach to how things would’ve really went down. They added real captions for effect.
