Trevor Noah: Michelle Obama’s lack of a poker face ‘most captured the feeling’ Friday

Published

on

Trevor Noah called out former First Lady Michelle Obama on a special episode of “The Daily Show” on Friday. According to Noah, Obama had a complete inability to make the perfect poker face.

“For me the person who most captured the feeling of the day was First Lady Michelle Obama,” Noah said. “It was all over her face.”

Noah showed Obama receiving a Tiffany’s box that Melania Trump brought her and the awkward expression where she didn’t know what to do with it.

“She clearly did not want” it, “Noah joked. “And look at Obama! Look at him! He’s like, ‘Uhhh, just put it anywhere, I’m moving. Just put it anywhere.'”

Noah also revealed the unfortunate gift that was inside of it. “It was just a tiny note from Melania that said, ‘HELP!'”

Noah explained that the whole day showed Mrs. Obama as the “barometer of America’s feelings.” Over and over, Noah showed expressions from Mrs. Obama that he explained represented a perfect “Oh, hell no,” face.

“That face is every emotion rolled into one,” Noah said. “That’s like, ‘Bye, Felicia,’ ‘Boi-bye,’ ‘I’d like to speak to your manager,’ ‘I’m so done,’ all rolled into one.”

Trump’s tax law threatened TurboTax’s profits — so the company started charging the disabled, the unemployed and students

Published

on

The 2017 tax overhaul vastly expanded the number of people who could file simplified tax returns, a boon to millions of Americans.

But the new law directly threatened the lucrative business of Intuit, the maker of TurboTax.

Although the company draws in customers with the promise of a “free” product, its fortunes depend on getting as many customers as possible to pay. It had been regularly charging $100 or more for returns that included itemized deductions for mortgage interest and charitable donations. Under the new law, many wealthier taxpayers would no longer be filing that form, qualifying them to use the company’s free software.

Trump’s packed Supreme Court backs ‘forced arbitration’ that bars workers from taking abusive bosses to court

Published

on

Corporations are rapidly rendering sexual harassment, race and gender discrimination, life-threatening workplaces and wage theft immune to employee legal action.

They achieve this by forcing the vast majority of non-union private-sector workers to sign away their rights to go to court or use class or collective arbitration. Instead many millions of workers are being forced to forgo these efficient legal ways to resolve issues and to file individual arbitration claims.

A new report from the Economic Policy Institute and the Center for Popular Democracy says that by 2024 more than 80% of non-union private-sector workers will find courthouse doors chained shut by forced arbitration clauses that ban lawsuits and collective actions. (EPI is a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank created in 1986 to press the needs of low- and middle-income workers in economic policy discussions.)

Corporations can legally put carcinogens in our food without warning labels — here’s why

Published

on

A recent study by the Environmental Working Group revealed something horrifying: Glyphosate, the active ingredient in the popular weedkiller Roundup, was present in 17 of the 21 oat-based cereal and snack products at levels considered unsafe for children. That includes six different brands of Cheerios, one of the most popular American cereals.

I've written before about the limits of corporate free speech when it comes to public safety, but on that occasion I discussed this insofar as it involved corporate-sponsored climate change denialism. Yet here we have something more tangible, more direct: The safe glyphosate limit for children is 160 parts per billion (ppb), yet Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch has 833 parts per billion and regular Cheerios has 729 ppb. While the potential risks of glyphosate are fiercely debated, many scientists believe that it is linked to cancer.
