At a sporting event in Kuwait, the coordinators accidentally played a fake version of the Kazakh national anthem from the film Borat. They just can't seem to get it right, can they?

Eric Trump Sends Out Electoral Map of Men-Only Election Hinting 'Momentum Is on Their Side' and Receives Prompt Mocking from the Internet

If only Nate Silver could've known that his electoral map tweets would inspire the latest hilarious meme movement. Silver was attempting to illustrate how the election would turn out if only men, or only women turned out to vote based on a polls-only forecast. The blue map showed Hillary winning big time, while the red shows Trump with the easy victory. Shortly after all this, Eric Trump pushed the men-only electoral map as a 'hint' momentum was on their side. Let the hilarity ensue.

Rick Santorum may have said some pretty crazy stuff in the past, but that’s nothing compared to this woman.

Santorum was taking questions at the South Carolina National Security Action Summit last weekend, when a lady stepped up to the microphone and went off on the most insane rant ever.

Did you know President Obama the “Communist dictator” once tried to nuke Charleston? Yup, according this retired school teacher it’s totally true.

“He’s trying to destroy the United States,” she says. “The Congress knows this. What kind of games is the Congress of the United States playing with the citizens of the United States?”

She doesn’t seem to ever really get to the meat of her question and eventually they cut her off. But it takes a while, and Santorum just stands there pretending to listen.

“I’m not a sitting member of the Senate,” he says afterwards. “So I’m not taking blame for any of that stuff.”

Oof. Somebody can't be happy about the recent turn of events. Also, the removal of all of those stickers will completely destroy the Blue Book value of that perfectly mediocre vehicle.

Specifically, Colbert dives in on a little rant about how he thinks that Trump thinks Presidents get the weekends off--or least that big celebration that'll follow Inauguration Day on Friday.

Meet Julie Bishop, Minister for Foreign Affairs and human emoji.

During an interview with Bishop on the Today show in Australia this week, host Karl Stefanovic brought up news that Governor-General Peter Cosgrove’s staff wanted a $2000 Thermomix for their kitchen.

He then asked Bishop if she knew what a Thermomix was. (It’s an expensive device that both heats and mixes food at the same time.)

“I’m going to answer in emoji,” she said, going on to make a weird face.

Well played. But which emoji was she impersonating?

Though the shirt has been removed from their site (or sold out), Urban Outfitters got into hot water this weekend for this stained and damaged "vintage" Kent State sweater. The historically-minded among you will recognize Kent State as the site of a Vietnam War protest in 1970 that ended with the police shooting of four student protesters.

Urban Outfitters claims that the item's appearance is due to aging, stains, and miscoloration, though obviously it looks more than a little like the violent aftermath of the protest itself. Their official statement on the sweater doesn't help their case much:



TL;DR: Company known for ripping off art designs, pandering to bratty youths, and doing attention-grabbing things to gain publicity among other attention-grabbing bratty youths acts according to form. Carry on.
