WATCH: ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ asks New Yorkers what sins he died for on Easter and their answers are hilarious

Published

on

Jesus of Nazareth — well okay, a guy dressed up like Jesus of Nazareth — hit the streets of New York City on Saturday to see how much pedestrians knew about the Easter holiday on Sunday.

Turns out, not much. But they knew a lot about giving silly answers, as shown in the resulting Funny or Die video.

Easter, of course, is the holiday in the Christian tradition where Jesus is said to have risen from the dead, not died.

“I’ve never seen The Wire,” one man confessed.

Another man replied, “Butt stuff?”

Another interviewee said he was a Muslim, and riffed off the fact that observant Muslims typically pray five times a day. “But I usually only pray four times a day. Sorry, Jesus.”

Watch the video, as posted by Funny or Die, here:

WATCH: Trump wonders if he should start taking insulin

Published

on

On Tuesday, at a press conference, President Donald Trump mused aloud whether he should start taking insulin.

"I don’t use insulin. Should I be? Huh? I never thought about it," he said.

"But I know a lot of people are very badly affected, right?" he added a second later. "Unbelievable."

Insulin is a crucial hormone the regulates blood sugar. People who are afflicted with Type 1 diabetes are incapable of producing it in their pancreas, and thus must administer it to themselves regularly through injections or pumps.

On CNN Tuesday, Yusef Salaam, one of the members of the Exonerated Five, warned about the implications of recent racist incidents to the state of civil rights in America.

"I want to ask you, in the course of the last couple of days we've covered this story, we've covered the story of a man who died after police put him in a hold with a knee to the neck. Yesterday I spoke with an African-American journalist who covered the Kentucky governor being hung in effigy, with people doing it who didn't seem to understand why that was problematic," said anchor Brianna Keilar. "And I just wonder what that says to you, after all of these decades, about where the country is."

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin slams Twitter’s ‘corporate gibberish’ explanation of why they won’t enforce their rules against Trump

Published

On CNN Tuesday, legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin laid into Twitter for their refusal to take down tweets from President Donald Trump falsely accusing MSNBC host and former Congressman Joe Scarborough of murdering a staffer — despite pleas from the staffer's family to make him stop.

"Twitter says it's deeply sorry about the pain, that they're working on how to figure out how to handle situations like this," said anchor Brianna Keilar. "I wonder if there's any legal recourse that this man has."

"I think frankly it's unlikely that he has any able to sue Twitter or even the president, but you know, Twitter is a private company," said Toobin. "They have rules. Like Greyhound buses have rules. You can't stay on a Greyhound bus if you break the rules. President Trump has broken the rules of Twitter over and over again, and Twitter has done nothing but put out statements of corporate gibberish like the one it did today."
