TwitterFacebook

As we know, the internet loves hot people. And the latest hot person to capture its attention is South Korean president Moon Jae-in’s new bodyguard.

To be fair, he is very handsome. Also, since he is a bodyguard, he is never photographed smiling, which makes him seem mysterious. Cool!

Fired FBI director James Comey gets cookie delivery to take away the pain

TwitterFacebook

The firestorm of political outrage and intrigue following President Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey has led some to call for increased scrutiny and perhaps even official action regarding the move. But in Comey’s own neighborhood, the response has been a lot more warm and fuzzy thanks to a local caring mom.

With great influence comes great accountability.

Mark Geragos, the Los Angeles-based power attorney behind the leading class action suit against organizers of the infamous Fyre Festival, now says his firm is investigating whether social media “influencers” who hyped the disastrous event could be dragged into the ever-expanding web of lawsuits.

“One of the things we’re toying with is going after social influencers who didn’t comply with [Federal Trade Commission] stuff so, that may be the next wave,” Geragos said late last week on The Adam Carolla Show, where he’s a regular guest. Read more…

Trump finally tweets (and promptly deletes) a unifying message

TwitterFacebook

President Donald Trump is all about togetherness this weekend.

POTUS woke up, skipped his usual vicious Saturday morning tweetstorm, and instead, waited until the afternoon to tweet a simple, yet powerfully unifying two letters in the form of the word: “We.”

Now, we’re assuming this was an accidental tweet — which Trump, along with his Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, are very familiar with — because the message was promptly deleted.

President Trump has already proven to be truly just so horrible at using the social media platform that this comes as no surprise, but the tweet spoke volumes to Trump’s Twitter followers. Read more…

TwitterFacebook

It’s such an obvious idea, but it took a professional artist to think of it: use the FaceApp to give old world art portraits the smiles they deserve.

The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport also realizes this, so they’ve enlisted the help of Seven Oaks Farm — a non-profit organization in southwest Ohio— to bring miniature therapy horses to the airport to cheer up travelers.

A place for pro athletes to share the selves that fans never see

TwitterFacebook

It can seem like everyone has a podcast these days, but a new series from former NBA player Etan Thomas has been a long time coming — it taps into a concept that got lodged in his brain back during a decade-long NBA career that ended in 2011. 

“A lot of the time, people think they know athletes, but they don’t really know them,” Thomas explains. “Or maybe people know one part of them, but not who they really are. Sometimes the media gets it wrong. I’ve wanted to give them a chance to retell their stories — a rematch, so to speak.”
