    Adam Schiff’s 2020 challenger filed an ethics complaint against the California congressman for his willingness to accept dirt on President Trump in an international prank call. Schiff’s Republican challenger, Jon Hollis, filed the complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics, citing his competitor's willingness to accept “compromising material” against the president from international agents as the basis of the complaint. At the time, Schiff believed he was speaking to a Ukrainian politician, but the call ended up being a bogus prank, which was recorded and posted online. In the call, Schiff discussed obtaining nude photographs of Trump from the foreign...

    A pair of Russians pretending to be the defense minister of Turkey tricked Sen. Lindsey Graham into two calls where he discussed President Donald Trump and US policy on Turkey, according to reports released Thursday. The call was actually from Alexey Stolyarov and Vladimir Kuznetsov, who made a name for themselves making prank calls to high profile Americans and Europeans according to Politico, which shared recordings of the calls. The pair go by nicknames Lexus and Vovan, and some people suspect they could have ties to the Kremlin and Russian intelligence services, Politico reports. Graham spokesman Kevin Bishop confirmed the...

    At first glance, there was nothing unusual about President Trump’s introduction Tuesday at Turning Point USA’s student summit. In many ways, it mirrored the production style that has become synonymous with Trump’s campaign rallies. Following a 12-minute video illustrating Trump’s rise to the presidency, music blared as the president’s name flashed across a giant screen in a bold shade of red. Trump took the stage and soaked in the raucous cheers from hundreds of young supporters packed inside the Marriott Marquis in Washington. Charlie Kirk, Turning Point’s outspoken founder and executive director, was on his left. But the image on...

    Two men have been arrested on charges they set a 27-year-old friend on fire while he was asleep on a couch in what police described as a “prank that went terribly, terribly wrong." Brandon Perez, 23, of Hammonton, and David Sult, 24, of Mays Landing, face charges of aggravated arson, aggravated assault and conspiracy, police in Hamilton, Atlantic County said Wednesday. The Brigantine man was sleeping at Sult’s home on the 2900 block of Cologne Avenue in the Mays Landing section of Hamilton on March 15 when Sult and Perez intentionally lit him on fire, police said.

    In 1999, Roberto Bui, Giovanni Cattabriga, Federico Guglielmi, and Luca Di Meo, writing under the name “Luther Blissett,” published an Italian novel called Q. Luther Blissett was a name regularly adopted in the ’90s by leftists, anarchists, and general troublemakers in Italy. It was used for staging all kinds of pranks. The Luther Blissetts in different cities would occasionally communicate by phone, but for the most part the project just spread organically. Think of it like an analogue Guy Fawkes Anonymous mask. That flowed from the original Q and was entirely in keeping with its leftist-anarchist context. ..the authors believe...

    The Wrap ^ | July 23, 2018 | Tony Maglio |
    Rep. Jason Spencer just made it way too easy for Sacha Baron Cohen. The Georgia state representative’s episode of “Who Is America?” premiered on Sunday, and it is pretty easy to see why Spencer threatened to sue Showtime to stop his “training film” from airing. First, Baron Cohen’s character Cpt. Erran Morad, who is an anti-terror expert who definitely did not spend 13 years in Israeli intelligence agency Mossad, has Spencer try to convince a person wearing a burka that he is a Chinese tourist. The exercise is pitched as a way for Spencer to inconspicuously take what is generally...

    IHOP is officially back to its original identity as the International House of Pancakes. On Monday, the chain announced on social media that its time as IHOb — the International House of Burgers — had come to an end. "We're giving away 60¢ short stacks on July 17 from 7a-7p for IHOP's 60th birthday. That's right, IHOP! We'd never turn our back on pancakes (except for that time we faked it to promote our new burgers)," the chain posted on Facebook.

    The White House has launched an internal investigation into how a comedian's prank call earlier this week was connected to President Trump. ABC News reported on Saturday that the Trump administration confirmed the claim that comedian John Melendez was connected to the president. The White House said it is now reviewing how the call occurred. Melendez said last week that he tricked Trump into believing he was New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez (D). In audio uploaded to “The Stuttering John Podcast,” Melendez converses with Trump, bringing up immigration concerns and Trump's executive order to stop separating migrant families at the...

    It’s a yearbook controversy, which has a Valley charter school issuing an apology to parents Monday night. Parents who just received the yearbook from Sonoran Science Academy were in disbelief after seeing a page in which a student with a Muslim first name was voted “most likely to bomb the U.S.” Bree Brown has an 11-year-old daughter at the school and said her daughter showed her the post over the weekend and appeared disturbed by it. “I looked down and read, most likely to bomb the U.S. and I just sat there for a second and thought, no way.

    STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) – The sound of gunfire and someone shouting “Everybody down, everybody” shocked moviegoers sitting in the lobby of the Bow Tie Majestic 6 movie theaters Sunday night, but the incident appears to have been a juvenile prank. Five children ranging in ages from 10 to 16 were arrested and face both criminal charges and potential school disciplinary action after police say they used toy cap guns to stage the mock attack in Stamford, reports CBS2’s Tony Aiello. Police say three members of the group had noisy toy guns and fired them in the theater while shouting “everyone...

    A Twitter user by the name of “Hotep Jesus” walked into a Starbucks store and received a FREE cup of coffee simply because he said “I heard y’all was racist”. Starbucks has taken major heat over the last few days after a viral video showed two black men being taken away by police after causing a scene at a Starbucks because they weren’t allowed to use the restroom. In response to this incident, Starbucks announced that they will close 8,000 stores for one day in May for an afternoon for race-bias training. Bryan Sharpe, who goes by “Hotep Jesus” on...

    British firefighters were "seriously unimpressed" when they were called out to rescue a YouTube prankster whose head was cemented inside a microwave. A video posted to YouTube by 22-year-old prankster TGFbro shows his head being cemented inside a microwave with Pollyfilla with a plastic bag protecting his face and a tube feeding him air. The prankster tells his friends that, despite the precautions, he is having trouble breathing, and they attempt to free his head -- without success. The West Midlands Fire Department was summoned to the scene and firefighters spent about an hour freeing the man's head. "We're seriously...

    It’s getting to be that time of year again: when jack-o’-lanterns glow and mummies and witches roam the streets. But there is one Halloween tradition that really gives me the chills: Jimmy Kimmel’s annual candy prank. Every Halloween for the past six years, ABC’s late-night talk show host has encouraged viewers to tell their children, on the morning after the holiday, that they have eaten the kids’ entire candy stash. Parents record their children’s reactions and send the videos to Kimmel, who broadcasts some of the clips on his show.

    A British "prankster" has said editors at right-wing news website Breitbart replied to spoof emails purporting to come from Trump adviser Steve Bannon. The prankster shared emails in which staff discussed doing "dirty work" against US President Trump's daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner. Mr Bannon has returned to Breitbart after being fired from the White House. "I don't much care for the Trump administration or Breitbart," the prankster told the BBC. One of the emails purporting to be from Mr Bannon said the former White House chief strategist would be "bringing forth my wrath on Ivanka and Jared"....

    A schoolgirl prank gone gruesomely wrong left an 11-year-old Bronx girl hospitalized with severe facial burns — and her rage-filled mom bent on revenge. Relatives of hospitalized Jamoneisha Merritt called Thursday for arrests in the scalding of the girl at her friend’s Bronx apartment. The victim’s mother Ebony Merritt appeared outside the home of Shernett Panton and her 12-year-old daughter Aniya Grant Stuart, spewing obscenities and threats. “I’m going to cut your face, you f---ing b---h!” Merritt screamed at Panton. “I’m going to burn your f---ing house down! You let this happen to my daughter!”
