Herald-Mail Media, “Unbelievably, 26 years of age, and passed away yesterday. It’s inconceivable that someone so young, and with so much talent, could do that. And I just would like to pass all of our love and best wishes to his loved ones, his family, his friends. And Mac, wherever you are, I hope you’re happy now.” Rapper Mac Miller died on September 7 in California from an apparent drug overdose. Watch John’s tribute above [image via screengrab]
On Saturday, Serena Williams did not exactly take kindly to a rule violation during the second set of the U.S. Open women’s singles final on Saturday. And the resulting confrontation with the chair umpire turned into one of the wildest moments in tennis history. Williams was playing Naomi Osaka when the chair umpire said she received illegal coaching. Williams was assessed a code violation and given a warning. Moments later, Williams smashed her racket — resulting in a second violation, which resulted in the automatic loss of a point. “I don’t cheat to win, I’d rather lose. I’m just letting you know,” snapped back at the umpire. After being docked a game, Williams said: “That’s not right. That’s not right. You know my character.” Williams then called the umpire, Carlos Ramos of Portugal, a “thief” for penalizing her a point. After this remark — the chair ump took the unfathomable Continue reading "WATCH: Serena Williams Has Explosive Confrontation With Umpire at US Open, Twitter Melts Down"
MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace made an offer on the air that Trump’s closest backers are sure to refuse. She suggested they come on MSNBC to take a polygraph to prove they think President Donald Trump is fit for office. The whole thing came up during a conversation with Evan McMullin, a former CIA agent and independent presidential candidate. “I think they should put everyone on a polygraph and ask them if they think Donald Trump is fit for the office of the president,” Wallace said. Then she even offered on-air time to anyone who is willing to come forward and answer questions about Trump’s fitness while hooked up to a lie detector. “John Kelly, Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner, let’s hook them up to a polygraph,” she continued on, stressing, “It’s a serious offer.” Then she said this: “If Continue reading "Nicolle Wallace Offers to Hook Trump’s Inner Circle Up to Polygraphs to See if They Really Think He’s Fit for Office"
On Thursday, President Donald Trump held a rally in Montana where talk, not surprisingly, turned to the New York Times op-ed railing against his presidency and fitness for office. “The so-called resistance is angry because their horrible ideas have been rejected by the American people and it is driving them crazy,” Trump said. He then added: “They are the ones, honestly, that have been driven crazy.” Yet things went a bit awry when he tried to say “anonymous.” “The latest active resistance is the op-ed published in the failing New York Times by an anom-oni-ss, really an anom-in-iss gutless coward,” he said slurring the word “anonymous.” Moving on, the president then suggested that the op-ed author may be a woman because they say he’s a man.

In a special Labor Day weekend edition of Justice with Judge Jeanine, host Jeanine Pirro told Attorney General Jeff Sessions he should “resign immediately” or “put on his big boy pants.” Pirro devoted her entire opening monologue to a scathing scolding of Sessions where she questioned his dignity and repeatedly told him it was time for him to go. “Why would you stay in a job where you are not wanted, a job you took under false pretenses, knowing you wouldn’t be able to do the complete job…. No one elected you, Jeff,” Pirro began. “You groveled and begged for the job and out of loyalty he gave it to you. You are so clueless, you don’t even know you are being used. You don’t even know you are nothing but a shill.” Then, a little bit later she stressed even his friends think he should quit. “Even Continue reading "Jeanine Pirro to Jeff Sessions: ‘Put on Your Big Boy Pants’ or Resign"
Former president Bill Clinton paid tribute to Aretha Franklin during her star-studded funeral Friday at Detroit’s Greater Grace Temple. Addressing an audience filled with musicians, actors, religious leaders, politicians and other family and friends, Clinton stressed that Franklin lived not only with courage, but faith and power as well. “She lived with faith, not without failure, but overcoming her failures. She lived with power, not without weakness, but overcoming her weaknesses,” Clinton said. “I just loved her.” After calling himself a “groupie” he continued on: “I said, oh my God, this woman who has sung for America, when Dr. King was killed, all these political conventions, including mine… So I figured out, I think, that the secret to her greatness was she took this massive talent and this perfect culture that raised her and decided to be the composer of her own life’s song.” Talking about the impact Continue reading "Bill Clinton Pays Moving Tribute to Aretha Franklin: ‘She Has Sung for America’"
During the lone primary campaign debate between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and challenger Cynthia Nixon on Wednesday, talk turned to the New York City subways. And it got heated fast. It all started over whether or not the candidates would delay the fare hike on the subways. “Yes, I think it’s unconscionable that we’re thinking of — Governor Cuomo is thinking about raising fares on a system that is working so poorly. as someone who is on the subway literally every day, I know firsthand how delays have tripled under Andrew Cuomo,” the actress turned politician replied. At one point, moderator Marcia Kramer told Nixon her time was up. She continued on: “He stole hundreds of millions from the MTA budget for his pet projects that have nothing to do with it.” Kramer reminded Nixon again her time was up. “He used the MTA like an ATM and we see Continue reading "Andrew Cuomo Battles Cynthia Nixon Over NY Subways in Fiery Gov Debate: She ‘Lives in the World of Fiction’"
