Tucker Carlson (Probably) Jokes About Trump Staring at Sun: ‘Most Impressive Thing Any President Has Ever Done’ (Video)
Tucker Carlson is known for being a Trump cheerleader, like many pundits on Fox News. But after Donald Trump boldly stared directly at today’s solar eclipse for seemingly no reason, Carlson demonstrated that today’s punditry is so ridiculous that jokes are now impossible to judge. On his show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the Fox News host did a quick segment about the total solar eclipse over the United States, the first in 38 years. He noted that people all over the country had stopped what they were doing to view the rare celestial event, in which the moon moved between the. »

He died Sunday of natural causes in Las Vegas at age 91.
Fudenberg says coroner deputies had been told Lewis died of ischemic cardiomyopathy.

Trump Says Nothing in Big Speech on Afghanistan
Donald Trump’s primetime address to the nation, his first since taking office, was supposed to lay out his future plan to resolve the 16-year-old conflict in Afghanistan. But as The New York Times concluded, “he failed to specify either the number of troops that would be committed, or the conditions by which he would judge the success of their mission there.” In short, it was a nothing-burger… which led to some pretty hilarious tweets.

Locarno Film Review: ‘The Poetess’
For a Western audience, there are several arresting elements to Stefanie Brockhaus and Andreas Wolff’s engaging, accessible documentary “The Poetess”: The first is that although we come to know its subject, Saudi writer Hissa Hilal, very well, and though she’s in almost every shot, we never see her face. The second is that the reason for her fame is a TV show called “Million’s Poet” which airs across the Arab world to regular audiences in excess of 70 million people, and yet it’s likely that those from outside that region will not have heard of it.
In format and layout, “Million’s Poet” is similar to any number of Western-style reality contests, from the flashy neon color scheme, bombastic music and dramatic spotlights, to the telegenic, glassy-eyed hosts, the panel of poker-faced judges and the noisy, participative studio audience. It’s “American Idol” by way of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” and »

White Supremacists Say ‘No Way’ When They Learn They’re Not All-White
Remember that “Chappelle’s Show” sketch about the Kkk leader who didn’t realize he was African-American? It turns out real-life white supremacists also tend to discount evidence that they aren’t all white. When confronted with genetic ancestry tests that might reveal Jewish or African roots, white supremacists try to discredit the “bad news,” according to a new study by UCLA sociology professors Aaron Panofsky and Joan Donovan. “They don’t say after the test results, ‘I was a racist jerk and now I’m enlightened,'” Panofsky told TheWrap. “No one ever said, ‘I’m 5 percent African, and »

How Steve Bannon Mined ‘Intense Young Men,’ From ‘World of Warcraft’ to the White House
Years before Steve Bannon made Breitbart.com one of the preeminent names in online politics and led the final months of Donald Trump’s astonishing presidential upset, he was just a guy helping dudes cheat at video games. His experience helping players navigate made-up realities, where all the news is fake and all the facts are alternative, helped him create a campaign that upended and rewrote reality. But Bannon’s run to the White House wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for the lessons he learned as vice chairman of International Gaming Entertainment, according to Joshua Green in »
