    President Trump mocked "The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon on Twitter Sunday after the comedian expressed regret over how he handled a guest appearance by then-candidate Trump in September 2016. The president said that Fallon is "whimpering to all that he did the famous 'hair show' with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), & that he would have now done it differently because it is said to have 'humanized' me-he is taking heat."

    And on the third day, there was contrition.Roseanne Barr is seeking an opportunity to personally call those she’s insulted on Twitter. No, not all of them — who has that kind of time? — but at least to phone three people she attacked leading up to ABC canceling her sitcom. Namely, George Soros, Valerie Jarrett, and Michelle Wolf. Attempting to also get phone numbers for Jarrett, Michelle and GS to personally apologize to them tho I disagree with their politics. I was still wrong 2 dehumanize them-they r not my enemy, harboring hate & anger is my enemy. I can...

    It started with money, as it so often does in New York. A crisp $100 bill slipped across the smooth surface of the mid-century-inspired concierge desk at 11 Howard, the sleek new boutique hotel in Soho. Looking up, Neffatari Davis, the 25-year-old concierge, who goes by “Neff,” was surprised to see the cash had come from a young woman who seemed to be around her age. She had a heart-shaped face and pouty lips surrounded by a wild tangle of red hair, her eyes framed by incongruously chunky black glasses that Neff, an aspiring cinematographer with an eye for detail,...

    American Airlines is making it very clear: Insects, goats and hedgehogs cannot be brought on planes as emotional support animals. The airline revised its guidelines on Monday for comfort animals on flights. Those who want to bring such an animal on board now have to file paperwork 48 hours before a flight, and there are new restrictions on which types of animals are permitted. "We support the rights of customers, from veterans to people with disabilities, with legitimate needs for a trained service or support animal," American Airlines said in a press release. "Unfortunately, untrained animals can lead to safety...

    Is the Gripen E too good to be true? Hushkit met Richard Smith the Head of Marketing & Sales for the Saab Gripen to find out more. When I interviewed the widely respected aviation journalist Bill Sweetman in 2013, I pointed out the Typhoon, F-22 and F-35 programmes have all received a great deal of criticism, but could he give an example of a well-run military aircraft project? He replied: “Almost anything from the land of blondes, aquavit and IKEA.” In an article Sweetman wrote for Aviation Week he argued that there the case for describing the forthcoming Gripen E/F...

    Photos Suggest that Kim Jong Un Wears Special Shoes to Make Himself Look Taller By Allie Fasanella On the heels (pun intended) of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s historic first meeting, South Korea’s media is calling out Kim for wearing special shoes to make himself appear taller. Chosun Ilbo, a conservative South Korean newspaper, analyzed videos and photographs of the recent landmark summit between the two leaders and spotted a rather high slope on the front of his shoes that seems to suggest the footwear contains insoles that push Kim’s feet upward.

    On ABC’s “Start Here,” podcast, comedian Kathy Griffin said President Donald Trump ordered federal agents to make her life miserable during the investigation resulting from a photo of Griffin holding a bloody head representing Trump. When asked about Trump not attending the White House Correspondents Dinner, Griffin said, “Of course I wish Trump was going. I’ve known this fool off and on for like 20 years. I mean, he’s actually hired me to roast him.” She continued, “I’ll tell you something, there’s something funny to me about Sarah Huckabee Sanders sitting in. Trump is so twisted I have not ruled...

    Kanye West canceled 21 tour dates in 2016 after suffering a “nervous breakdown,” but there are new fears for his health after he abruptly fired manager Scooter Braun and a “friend” claimed West had been addicted to opioids. On Monday, Hot 97 host Ebro Darden told listeners that he had spoken with West this weekend, and West allegedly told him, “Nobody really showed love for me when I was addicted to opioids and in the hospital.” If West had actually canceled the tour due to drug use, it could have legal ramifications. The rapper filed a 2017 $10 million lawsuit...

    By voting no on the Pompeo nomination the vote would have been rescheduled to 11PM when Isakson returned. It would have been a waste of time as Pompeo WILL be SOS. Something tells me the rest of the Rats were ok with it because who wants to work late? That Dr. Suess character from Va. was the only one up in November which he'll probably win. On to the Senate where hopefully toe Rand Pauls and Flakes won't play their games.

    Friendly advice to Chris Cuomo: when mocking President Trump over a spelling mistake, try to avoid making a mistake yourself . . . On CNN this morning, Cuomo went out of his way to note that in a tweet about James Comey, the prez misspelled “shady” as “shadey.” Continued Cuomo: “unless [Trump was] maybe referring to Slim Shadey, the alternate persona of Eminem.” Here’s the problem, Chris: Eminem spells it Slim Shady. Not Slim Shadey. Ruh-roh! Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Adidas would love to add Colin Kaepernick to its list of endorsers . . . but only if Kaepernick lands on an NFL team. So now NFL teams are stopping Kaepernick from collecting a paycheck playing football and stopping him from landing endorsement deals. That's not totally true. Adidas could sign Kaepernick to a deal regardless of whether he lands on a team or not. They have a deep roster of endorsement partners who don't play sports. Of course, those influencers and partners still have a ton of exposure due to being musicians, actors/actresses, and social media followings. In short,...

    For the first time ever, US lawmakers are reportedly going to let a sitting senator bring a child onto the Senate floor while the chamber is in session. Senate leaders are expected to approve a resolution filed by Sen. Tammy Duckworth — the first senator to give birth while in office — that would allow her new baby girl to accompany her for the next few months, according to Politico. The request will ultimately let senators bring children under a year old onto the Senate floor. Duckworth (D-Ill.) told the website before her daughter was born that new mothers couldn’t...
