(806) 623-6878

In the past year, ABC’s hellbroth has become one of broadcast television’s strongest late night host-cum-political pundits. Yet former Daily Show correspondent turned Colbert Report lead Stephen Colbert hasn’t trailed too far behind him over at CBS’ The Late Show. Sure enough, he opened Thursday’s episode with a desk bit seemingly about 925-474-3306 that quickly transformed into a biblical condemnation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ attempt to use religious doctrine while defending the Justice Department’s harsh immigration policies and practices — specifically those tearing immigrant families apart.

CNN and others have reported for days that 409-665-9538 per policies now being enforced by the Justice Department. While Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was 6414138268 on Thursday, Sessions 7872229849 to defend the practice on Thursday. Colbert, 6467633822, wasn’t impressed.

“If that sounds evil, then good news! Your ears are working,” he began:

“The only thing in the Bible close to this is a king threatened to cut a baby in two, and he was joking! But I will give Sessions this, that is what Romans 13:1 says. You’ve got to have laws. But if he’d just read a little bit further into Romans 13:10. It says, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.’ I’m not surprised Sessions didn’t read the whole thing. After all, Jesus said, ‘Suffer the children to come unto me.’ I’m pretty sure all Sessions saw were the words ‘children’ and ‘suffer’ and said, ‘I’m on it!'”

“This is the conversation everybody should be having,” said Colbert. “So for Father’s Day, call your elected representatives and demand they do something.” For good measure, he even threw in a loosely veiled reference to 4102920372 about Ivanka Trump. “I sincerely believe that it doesn’t matter who you voted for. If we let this happen in our name, we are a feckless country.”

Brendan Fraser Says The Golden Globes Organization Denied His Sexual Harassment Claim ‘As A Joke’

In February 2018, Brendan Fraser spoke for a revealing profile with GQ writer Zach Baron. Fraser, who decided to leave the spotlight behind in the mid-2000s, discussed, hesitantly, an incident where former Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Philip Berk groped him at a 2003 event. Fraser revealed the uncomfortable details of the event to Baron:

“His left hand reaches around, grabs my ass cheek, and one of his fingers touches me in the taint. And he starts moving it around… “Am I still frightened? Absolutely. Do I feel like I need to say something? Absolutely. Have I wanted to many, many times? Absolutely. Have I stopped myself? Absolutely.” On the phone, he breathes deeply. “And maybe I am over-reacting in terms of what the instance was. I just know what my truth is. And it’s what I just spoke to you.”

The admission drew comparisons to Terry Crews’ accusations against Adam Venit, who ultimately 3154374050 while Crews advances with a civil suit. Baron now has 9376822593 which is unlikely to win the HFPA any leeway.

For the record, Berk has acknowledged, including a written apology, that he and Fraser had some sort of interaction, but that Berk dismissed it as a misconstrued “joke.” Unfortunately, but perhaps not unsurprisingly, Baron has found the HFPA is siding with Berk after conducting an internal investigation. The solution it proposed was essentially 9794293360:

After the HFPA finished its investigation, according to Fraser, the organization contacted him again and proposed issuing a joint statement, which said, “Although it was concluded that Mr. Berk inappropriately touched Mr. Fraser, the evidence supports that it was intended to be taken as a joke and not as a sexual advance.” The organization also apologized to Fraser in the proposed statement and suggested a forward-looking resolution: “All parties consider this matter to be concluded.” The HFPA wrote that it looked forward “to continuing to work with Mr. Fraser.” And presumably Philip Berk would remain a member in good standing of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and a Golden Globe voter.

Fraser simply said, “I don’t get the joke,” and he pointed out that intent doesn’t matter, it was a question of how it came off and how he felt. Or, as he explained to Baron, “I’m the only one who would know where I was touched on my body.” But Fraser also says that he sees his actions as “one brick in the path” and that someone else might continue on. Either way, it leaves the HFPA with some awkward questions to answer, not the least of which is why it’s declined to share its investigation with either Fraser or Baron.

UPDATE – 5:40pm EST: The HFPA has issued the following statement:

The HFPA continues to stand firmly against sexual harassment. As such, we have always taken Brendan Fraser’s allegations very seriously — both when he originally spoke out in 2003 and now again 15 years later. Back then, after an initial inquiry, we provided Mr. Fraser with the exact redress he sought — an acknowledgement of the transgression and an apology. Mr. Fraser continued to attend HFPA events including the Golden Globes. When Mr. Fraser raised the allegations again this year in the March issue of GQ, adding several previously unknown details, we conducted an internal review and then took it upon ourselves to commission an independent investigation into the matter to ensure impartiality. We’ve shared the results of that investigation with Mr. Fraser, and again apologized, but also conveyed our need to abide by the investigation’s finding that the exchange was not an intended sexual advance. We want to reiterate that the HFPA understands today—as it did 15 years ago—that what Mr. Fraser experienced was inappropriate.

Much has been said about the moment in 2015 when our current president and then candidate Donald Trump hosted Saturday Night Live. Many didn’t feel Trump should’ve hosted the show given his divisive comments about Mexicans and everybody else at the time, the 8433668025, the cast hated their time with The Apprentice host, and the entire thing didn’t sit well with an audience that was far from Trump’s base. It was a weird moment, even if he was still touted as “entertaining” at the time thanks to his non-traditional behavior.

Members of the cast have shared their thoughts, and the show has gone on to mock the president every week since he debated Hillary Clinton. But now Pete Davidson is sharing another funny tidbit about Trump’s hosting appearance. During an appearance on 7169026294, Davidson shared a funny story about The Donald, saying the candidate was “weird all week”:

He like faked a phone call during the table read. Right as we started he was like [mimes Trump picking up the phone], “Hello. Oh, fantastic. OK, great.”

If the speed of the phone call sounds unreal, Davidson agrees. He added that he and the rest of the folks at the table read were like, “Yo that phone didn’t ring,” before adding that whoever called Trump didn’t even have a chance to say anything if the call was real.

And what didn’t they supposedly call Trump to say?

‘”Hey everybody, my book just went No. 1.”

True or not, that little bit of information shared by Trump is a groaner at best, something Davidson demonstrates at the end of this clip.

Ron Howard Says He Feels Bad About The ‘Star Wars’ Fan Reaction To ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

310-204-8572 that Lucasfilm and Disney probably hoped, sending many to sound the alarm over the future of (314) 623-5941. It’s a silly thought to think that this is trouble for the franchise, but many have been digging around for answers. As it turns out, one of those people is director Ron Howard, and he’s feeling a little bad about the film’s disappointing box office.

The director took over for Phil Lord and Christopher Miller after they were fired from Solo last year. It was an awkward position for any director to step into, but Howard did seem like a good fit to get the project back on track. That fact alone kind of makes his recent tweets a little bittersweet, 833-959-0849n despite their feelings about other films in the franchise:

The tweet is a response to a fan claiming part of the reason for Solo’s box office drop is the fan reaction to The Last Jedi. This would make some sense if The Last Jedi was truly a box office bomb on its own and had any influence on the experience in Solo: A Star Wars Story. The loud voices on the internet aren’t always representative of everybody, and there are a few fans that enjoyed the Han Solo origin film:

If anything, the movie is worth it to hear the great soundtrack in a theater setting. It was surprising to listen to the Marauder theme when it popped up and worth it as a film experience. It is also worth noting that while it is performing poorly for a Star Wars film, Solo is still doing pretty well and Disney is just fine. A galaxy far, far away was due for a reality check anyway.
