‘The Dude abides’ at Philly’s third annual Lebowski Fest

Published

on

“I fucking love this city,” Lebowski Fest Founding Dude Scott Schufitt told WPHL-TV, outside Philadelphia’s Theatre of the Living Arts. It was Shufitt’s third Philadelphia-based Lebowski Fest, which he helped found in Louisville, Kentucky in 2002.

“We were going to go in costume, but that would have required some effort,” one attendee said. “And that would have been very un-Dude,” added his friend.

‘Wackadoodle’ Trump is ‘seriously worried about losing’: CNN legal analyst

Published

on

On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin discussed President Donald Trump's bizarre claim that Google "manipulated" millions of votes for Hillary Clinton.

"And there is another conspiracy theory, Jeffrey, that he's on to," said anchor Brianna Keilar. "He took to Twitter today to accuse Google of manipulating votes. He said 'Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought!"

‘Did Newt buy his degree from Trump University?’: Republican destroyed for recession claims on Fox News

Published

on

Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA) was ridiculed on Twitter for claiming every single Democratic presidential candidate is hoping for a recession.

"I think every left-wing reporter in the country and every Democratic presidential candidate is desperate for a recession," Gingrich claimed on Fox News.

He added, "so far at least, we're probably the healthiest economy on the planet and we're more likely to avoid a recession than any other major country in the world."

The internet was less than impressed. Journalists, in particular, were outraged considering the mass layoffs that occurred during the last recession.

On CNN's "The Situation Room" on Monday, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) laid into President Donald Trump, calling him a "paranoid, delusional individual" who is steering America into the ground with his personal demons.

Americans, Cohen said, need to come "to grips with the fact that we have a leader who is not capable of leading this country. The economy is in danger because the president has no clue. He doesn't have an economist. He's got a TV commentator. They don't know what to do."

"I've been with some of the leaders around the world in the last several months, and they are pretty much the folks I've been with, and top financial people concerned about the United States going it alone with the tariffs on China that they think will harm the world economy, rather than acting in concert with our allies, and they have no faith in Trump, and I have no faith in Trump."
