Comedian Russell Brand had a hugely successful video blog “The Trew News” that went on hiatus six months ago, but Tuesday a new short video titled “Trump – Pixar-Hitler or aged-baby?” popped up with Brand doing some stand-up attacking GOP front-runner Donald Trump.
In the video Brand is seen reading things people have said about his opposition to Trump. “Russell Brand says Donald Trump’s hair is the real reason he opposes wind farms,” he said to audience laughter.
Brand told the audience about his ongoing spat and showed the video Trump recorded attacking Brand and rhetorically asking what Katy Perry was thinking.
“I like him cause he’s like a big rich baby,” Brand said with Trump on a screen behind him. “I just want to breastfeed him. Come here you silly c*nt, have a bit of t*t-milk.”
Toward the end of “The Trew News,” Brand began attacking Trump as his rhetoric about women became more toxic. In August, Brand paused his ongoing feud with Fox News, and defended Fox News debate moderator Megyn Kelly saying, “I find Donald Trump objectionable, and I am not menstruating.”
Check out the video below for the full Brand of hilarity:
White House adds 20 percent increase to ‘best case’ projection of coronavirus deaths
The White House is moving the goal posts once again. Instead of taking drastic action, like asking every state's governor to mandate a quarantine to reduce the spread of coronavirus, it is quietly upping its projected death toll, just one day after stunning Americans with a six-digit death rate.
On Sunday President Donald Trump told Americans he thinks if 100,000 Americans die from coronavirus he will have done "a very good job."
On Monday Dr. Deborah Birx announced the White House is projecting 100,000 to 200,000 deaths.
Tuesday evening, the number increased 20 percent.
Olympic athletes in ‘impossible position’ – Canada
Canadian Olympic chiefs said Monday the health and safety of athletes had prompted the country's decision to withdraw its team from the Tokyo Olympics amid the coronavirus pandemic.
A day after Canada became the first team to announce its withdrawal from the July 24-August 9 Games, Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) chief David Shoemaker said athletes had been left in an "impossible position."
With public health authorities urging individuals to stay inside to curb the spread of COVID-19, athletes had been caught between a desire to heed health and safety advice while trying to minimize disruption to training programs.
Vietnamese women strive to clear war-era mines
Inching across a field littered with Vietnam war-era bombs, Ngoc leads an all-women demining team clearing unexploded ordnance that has killed tens of thousands of people -- including her uncle.
"He died in an explosion. I was haunted by memories of him," Le Thi Bich Ngoc tells AFP as she oversees the controlled detonation of a cluster bomb found in a sealed-off site in central Quang Tri province.
More than 6.1 million hectares of land in Vietnam remain blanketed by unexploded munitions -- mainly dropped by US bombers -- decades after the war ended in 1975.
At least 40,000 Vietnamese have since died in related accidents. Victims are often farmers who accidentally trigger explosions, people salvaging scrap metal, or children who mistake bomblets for toys.
