Trevor Noah: Bernie Sanders Is 'Like A Disillusioned Peter Pan'

(0) Comments | Posted July 27, 2016 | 1:48 AM

Bernie Sanders has quite a task to convince his followers to throw their support behind Hillary Clinton. But Trevor Noah said he admired how the Vermont senator attempted to calm his supporters on the first night of the Democratic National Convention.

On Tuesday’s episode of “The Daily Show,” Noah showed Sanders getting booed by his own backers as he tried to convince them that a vote against Clinton was a vote for Donald Trump.

“You’ve got to love Bernie Sanders,” Noah said. “He spent the last year teaching people to dream the impossible dream ― universal health care, trillions in infrastructure, free college, all paid for with historic tax hikes ― and now, in a room full of the people who love those ideas, he’s coming out like a disillusioned Peter Pan.” 

Noah then did his best Sanders impression: “Clap all you want. Tinker Bell is not coming back. This is real life!”

Noah said he was surprised by the way Sanders supporters were acting.

“[They’re like,] ‘We love you, Bernie! We’ll follow you anywhere!’” Noah said. “[And then when he says] ‘I think we should vote for Hillary,’ [They’re like] ‘Fuck you, old man!’”

103-Year-Old Hillary Clinton Fan Vows To Live Long Enough To Vote For Her

(0) Comments | Posted July 26, 2016 | 5:10 PM

Ruline Steininger says she’s seen many things during her 103 years on earth, including two worldwide depressions, a cure for polio and a man walking on the moon.

But she’s hoping to see another major event soon: The election of the first woman president.

Steininger, a retired schoolteacher from Pleasant Hill, Iowa, was 7 in August 1920, when the 19th Amendment was ratified, giving women the right to vote.

Steininger has voted in every election since 1936, but told CNN that the November ballot represents something she never thought possible, as she plans to cast her vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“I couldn’t imagine a woman. I mean, it’s always been a man and I just assumed it might always be,” she said.

Another woman born before her right to vote existed, Jerry Emmett, 102, presented Arizona’s delegates for Clinton at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night.

Steininger admires Clinton, but admits she’s also considering what might happen to America should GOP nominee Donald Trump be elected.

“I’m shocked. I don’t know what has gotten into people,” she said, according to RawStory.com. “If he’s elected president, it’s going to be a national disaster, which we will likely take years to recover from.”

Because of that, Steininger said she has only one option to ensure Clinton’s election in November.

“I’ve got a big job ahead of me ... I’ve got to live!” she told CNN. “After that, OK, I can die if I want to, but I’m going to live until she’s...

Watch This Guy Dress Up Like A Tree And Seriously Freak Out Pedestrians

(0) Comments | Posted July 26, 2016 | 3:36 PM

Wonder if he plans to branch out.

A 57-year-old man in Venice Beach, California, is hoping to “help people see the forest for the trees” by dressing up as a tree himself.

His official name is Lionel Powell, but he is known to his neighbors as “Treeman,” thanks to the elaborate costume he wears on the streets that includes stilts.

There’s a method to his madness.

“What I’m doing here is called a tree awakening,” he told 60 Second Docs, an online film series. “People are so busy they don’t get to stop and smell the roses.”

Powell has worked as a costume character for more than 20, dressing up as characters like Pluto and Eeyore at amusement parks like Walt Disney World and Universal Studios.

Now he has planted roots in Venice Beach, where he performs street theater in costumes of his own design.

Powell is especially fond of standing very still like a real tree before moving and freaking out passers-by.

“I get many different reactions, but 90 percent of people are awed. Doesn’t matter how big they are,” Powell told ArgonautNews.com. “Mostly what I get is after the surprise [of startling someone] is...

Samantha Bee: 'Indiana Hates Mike Pence As Much As Indiana Jones Hates Snakes'

(0) Comments | Posted July 19, 2016 | 12:47 AM

Samantha Bee is back on air after a three-week hiatus ― and she’s gone full throttle for Donald Trump’s vice-presidential choice, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.

“Indiana voters hate Pence as much as Indiana Jones hates snakes,” the comedian said during her opening monologue on “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” Monday night.

Bee showed footage of people booing Pence being while he threw out the first pitch at an Indiana baseball game, along with negative headlines criticizing him as being out of his league.

“Who is Mike Pence?” Bee asked during the segment. “If you’re a lady Hoosier, you may recognize him as the governor who inspected your reproductive organs every 30 days to make sure you weren’t using them in ways that would make Jesus sad.”

Bee pointed out that Pence signed a law requiring funerals for fetuses after an abortion or miscarriage.

“The law was blocked by a federal judge, but not before Pence had closed down every abortion clinic not equipped with a full complement of funeral bagpipers, you know, for the woman’s safety,” she said. “In that state, having a miscarriage could land you in jail for 20 years, so if you’re driving through Indiana and the contractions start, cross your legs and don’t stop till you’re in Chicago!”

Bee did see a positive in Pence being picked as the presumptive GOP presidential nominee’s Veep.

“Congratulations Indiana! You just got rid of one of the worst governors you’ve ever had,” she said, while offering condolences to the Garden State.

“I’m sorry New Jersey, you were this close,” she said while holding her thumb and forefinger barely...

Wanted Man Caught While Playing Pokemon Go Outside Police Station

(0) Comments | Posted July 18, 2016 | 4:50 PM

A Pokemon Go player who was trying to catch ‘em all ended up getting caught by police.

William Wilcox was arrested Thursday morning for an outstanding arrest warrant after police in Milford, Michigan, saw him playing Pokemon Go outside of the station, which is also a Pokemon gym.

“He made our job much easier for us that day,” Milford Police Chief Thomas Lindberg told Fox2Detroit.com.

Officers said the 24-year-old Wilcox was in pajama pants standing near a flagpole when they recognized him thanks to a rap sheet that includes a 2014 conviction for receiving stolen property, according to The Smoking Gun.

Officials checked records and discovered Wilcox was wanted on a misdemeanor warrant for a failure to appear on a breaking and entering charge.

Wilcox was taken into custody without incident right when he was trying to catch the character at the flagpole. 

“He either forgot that he had a warrant out for his arrest or was just ignoring it thinking nothing will happen,” Lindburg told WXYZ TV. “I think he was more upset that he had to stop playing the game.”

Wilcox was released on his own recognizance and is probably playing Pokemon Go until his next court date later this...
