Comedian Seth Meyers isn’t known for being speechless about anything. The “Late Night” host always has a hilarious quip or bit of snark to drop at the end of a long news day. Tonight was different.
Meyers simply paused for a long time and admitted, “I can’t,” and moved on.
Once he reached his “Closer Look” segment, Meyers discussed Trump’s inability to know anything about what’s in his own healthcare law, but he ultimately returned to the tweets attacking MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and called them “vicious and cruel.” He went on, saying, he expected something to come out of an “old-school misogynist.”
Reading Trump’s Tweet, Meyers emphasized Trump’s final line, “I said no.”
“Said no to what? Your f*cking meds?!”
Later, Meyers told the Daily Beast that they decided not to read the full attack on Brzezinski because it might be too hurtful to her. With this something this, Meyers said there’s no real way to “win.”
He now heads out on a two-week vacation, where, hopefully, he can escape some of the Trump news.
Watch Meyers’ commentary on Trump’s foolishness on Trumpcare below:
Lady Antebellum changed their name for racial sensitivity — now they’re suing the Black singer who already used their new name
In June, as the national conversation about racial justice in the wake of the George Floyd killing pushed many groups and organizations to examine the racial connotations of their brands, the country music group Lady Antebellum announced they were changing their name to "Lady A" to remove reference to the slavery period of Southern history.
There was just one problem: an African-American blues singer in Seattle, Anita White, already went by that name. Now, according to Pitchfork, the band is going to court for the right to use the trademark.
American Airlines ordered passengers to stop social distancing — because they hadn’t paid for exit seats
On Wednesday, The New York Times reported that the flight crew on an American Airlines trip ordered two passengers to stop social distancing and move back to their seats.
The reason? The empty row they moved into cost slightly more.
"On a June 30 flight on American Airlines from Dallas to Newark, Joy Gonzalez, an aviation engineer based in Seattle, found herself seated at a window with two older passengers beside her in the middle and aisle seats," reported Elaine Glusac. "In order to gain more social distance, she and the aisle passenger both moved to seats behind them where two rows were empty. But before takeoff, a flight attendant ordered them back to their assigned seats, telling them they had not paid for those exit row seats, which are more expensive."
US artist’s holiday park sculpture fetches millions
A huge sculpture by American artist Alexander Calder sold at auction in Paris on Wednesday for over 4.9 million euros, auctioneers Artcurial said, after nearly six decades on display at a holiday park in southern France.
The influential sculptor is known primarily for his colorful and abstract mobiles, of which he made thousands over the course of his career.
But he also made "stabiles" -- the opposite of mobiles -- one of which remained concealed from the general public in La Colle-sur-Loup village, a few dozen kilometres from the ritzy city Cannes.
The black steel 3,5 meter (11 foot) structure was made by Calder in 1963.
