Chance The Rapper’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Is One Big Name-Drop

Westlake Legal Group 5d9d992a210000c307342b50 Chance The Rapper’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Is One Big Name-Drop

In “The Late Late Show” bit that aired Tuesday night, the Grammy-winning musician spilled the beans to host James Corden on his friendships with former President Barack Obama and fellow rap stars Jay-Z and Kanye West.

Chance revealed how Obama and Jay-Z are a little hard to get hold of on the phone. He does have a direct line to West, however, but admitting to facing a “spiritual battle” when deciding to follow one of his whims.

Corden also served up Chance (who revealed he hates vegetables) a platter of veggies ― while Chance broke down the totally non-confrontational way he deals with receiving an unsatisfactory verse from a collaborator on a song.

Second NBA Cares event canceled in China during Lakers-Nets preseason visit: report

Westlake Legal Group lebron-james Second NBA Cares event canceled in China during Lakers-Nets preseason visit: report fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/sports/nba/los-angeles-lakers fox-news/sports/nba/houston-rockets fox-news/sports/nba/brooklyn-nets fox-news/sports/nba fox-news/politics fox news fnc/sports fnc Dom Calicchio article 61cad9a8-6cd7-5591-89a8-6a6960f13e37

An NBA Cares event scheduled for Wednesday in Shanghai that was supposed to feature players from the Los Angeles Lakers has been canceled, according to reports.

The cancellation comes one day after a similar event featuring the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets was canceled.

The teams remain scheduled to play a pair of preseason games in China, planned for Thursday morning and Saturday morning, Eastern U.S. time, amid speculation that Chinese officials or possibly the NBA might postpone those events as well. At least one U.S. lawmaker, Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., has called on the league to pull out.

NBA-CHINA CONTROVERSY EXPOSED HOW DEPENDENT AMERICAN BASKETBALL IS ON BEIJING, FS1’S JASON WHITLOCK SAYS

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver was heading to Shanghai on Wednesday in an effort to repair the league’s relationship with China, according to the Associated Press. He said he did not expect the Lakers-Nets games to be canceled.

“But if those are the consequences of us adhering to our values, I still feel it’s very, very important to adhere to those values,” Silver said.

Photos posted on social media showed Lakers stars — including LeBron James and Anthony Davis — outside a facility where the team held a practice that was off-limits to the media, according to reports.

NBA Cares is the charity arm of the 30-team league that supports numerous causes, such as education and disaster relief.

But the two teams’ goodwill visit to the country has been overshadowed by a controversy sparked by a now-deleted Twitter message posted by Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, who expressed support for pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong who have been opposing what they view as Chinese interference in the island territory’s autonomy.

The tweet was especially offensive in China because the Rockets were the team of Yao Ming, a Shanghai native who played in the NBA from 2002 to 2011 and is considered the sport’s greatest ambassador in his home country. Several Chinese companies immediately cut ties with the Rockets.

Team star James Harden, who was with the Rockets in Japan, in a separate trip from the Lakers-Nets visit in China, apologized Monday on behalf of the organization.

“We apologize. You know, we love China. We love playing there,” Harden said, according to ESPN. “For both of us individually, we go there once or twice a year. They show us the most important love.”

Hong Kong has been a special administrative region of China since 1997, when Britain relinquished control.

Morey’s tweet also placed the NBA in the position of having to choose between supporting the free-speech values of the United States and pursuing business in China, a communist nation that ranks as the world’s No. 2 economy.

Not long after the tweet appeared, Silver said at a news conference that the league was “apologetic” over the fallout, but was “not apologizing for Daryl exercising his freedom of speech.” Silver added that he “regrets” how so many Chinese people and NBA fans were upset by Morey’s message.

“Daryl Morey, as general manager of the Houston Rockets, enjoys that right as one of our employees,” Silver said, according to the Associated Press. “What I also tried to suggest is that I understand there are consequences from his freedom of speech and we will have to live with those consequences.”

Nevertheless, the league faced bipartisan criticism for its initial response.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., blasted the league as “hypocrites,” saying its players “have no problem speaking out on politics & social issues in America. But they apologize to #China for a pro democracy tweet from an NBA team executive.”

“We’re better than this,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, wrote. “Human rights shouldn’t be for sale & the NBA shouldn’t be assisting Chinese communist censorhip.

On Monday, presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., wrote:

“China is trying to use its market power to silence free speech and criticism of its conduct. In response, the NBA chose its pocketbook over its principles – and our values. We should all be speaking out in support of those protesting for their rights.”

Other critics noted that normally outspoken figures in the NBA – such as Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, and star Lakers player LeBron James, have been largely silent on the controversy.

The NBA regular season is scheduled to begin Oct. 22

Marc Thiessen: Joe Biden is a hypocrite on Ukraine

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6093235542001_6093237749001-vs Marc Thiessen: Joe Biden is a hypocrite on Ukraine the washington post Marc Thiessen fox-news/world/world-regions/russia fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/barack-obama fox-news/opinion fnc/opinion fnc article 0d62019b-3661-5113-a697-616d252cd746

Former Vice President Joe Biden has said that in holding up vital military assistance to Ukraine, President Trump “used the power and resources of the United States to pressure a sovereign nation, a partner that is still under direct assault from Russia … to subvert the rule of law in the express hope of extracting a political favor.”

That’s rich. The aid in question is lethal military assistance that the Obama-Biden administration refused to give Ukraine.

In 2014, after Russia annexed Crimea and began arming separatists in eastern Ukraine with tanks, armored vehicles and rocket launchers, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko came to Washington to plead for weapons to defend his country. In an impassioned address to a joint session of Congress — with Biden sitting directly behind him — Poroshenko said his country appreciated the nonlethal assistance he was getting, but declared “one cannot win a war with blankets.”

PETER SCHWEIZER: BIDEN UKRAINE DEALINGS — 7 ESSENTIAL FACTS

The Obama-Biden administration was unmoved. The Wall Street Journal reported at the time that “President Barack Obama stuck to his refusal to provide weapons or other lethal military gear to Ukraine, despite a passionate appeal Thursday for help in fighting pro-Russian rebels by Ukraine’s president.” Why? The administration feared that lethal aid would provoke Moscow.

So what did the administration give him? Instead of RPGs (rocket-propelled grenades), we provided MREs (meals ready to eat) — food rations. As one frustrated former Pentagon official put it at the time, “What kind of message does that send anyway? We are sending MREs while they are being invaded by an aggressor.”

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR OPINION NEWSLETTER

Answer: a message of weakness.

When Trump took office, he delivered a message of strength. In December 2017, the new administration announced that the United States would send the lethal aid to Ukraine that Poroshenko requested and Obama and Biden refused — the sale of $47 million worth of Javelin antitank missiles. In May 2018, after Ukraine tested its new Javelin missiles, Poroshenko exulted on Twitter, “Finally this day has come!” and personally thanked Trump “for supporting Ukraine and adopting a decision to provide Javelin antitank missile systems.”

More from Opinion

For Biden to now attack Trump for a temporary delay in a new round of lethal military aid reeks of hypocrisy. It was on Biden’s watch that the United States refused to deliver military aid at all. Yet the same vice president who sat there impassively while Ukraine’s president begged for weapons now dares to cite the Russian threat to Ukraine in castigating Trump? Talk about chutzpah.

And since Biden raised the Russian threat, let’s recall that the Obama-Biden administration bears much responsibility for the annexation of Crimea that necessitated the delivery of lethal aid to Ukraine in the first place. Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine came in the aftermath of the Obama-Biden administration’s failure to enforce its red line against Bashar Assad’s use of chemical weapons by Syria. In March 2013, Biden declared, “Because we recognize the great danger Assad’s chemical and biological arsenals pose to Israel and the United States, to the whole world, we’ve set a clear red line against the use or the transfer of those weapons.”

Assad responded by using chemical weapons on innocent civilians not once, but 16 times. And yet Obama and Biden did nothing, failing to carry out even “unbelievably small” military strikes — a decision Biden publicly defended. “We can easily say we should have bombed and gone in and taken out their air defense system,” Biden said, “Well, you know, big nations can’t bluff.”

CLICK HERE FOR THE ALL-NEW FOXBUSINESS.COM

Bluff is what Obama and Biden did — and Assad called their bluff. Not only that, they turned to Russia for a face-saving way out, letting Russian President Vladimir Putin broker a phony deal to have Syria disarm. It was one of the most embarrassing foreign policy debacles of the post-Cold War era. So it should come as no surprise that, when Obama threatened to impose costs on Putin if he invaded Ukraine, the Kremlin called his bluff, too. Putin knew Obama and Biden did not have the will to stand up to him in Ukraine. And he was proved right when they refused to give Ukraine lethal aid for fear of further provoking him.

None of this excuses Trump’s delaying a new round of lethal military aid to Ukraine. But if this military assistance was as vital to countering the Russian threat as Biden says, then it’s fair to ask: Why didn’t the United States provide it when Biden was the Obama administration’s point man on Ukraine?

Late Night Hosts Find The Funny In Latest Trump Impeachment Inquiry Twist

Westlake Legal Group 5d9d8043200000d4064fe0ec Late Night Hosts Find The Funny In Latest Trump Impeachment Inquiry Twist

The House impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump continues to provide late night comedians plenty to play with.

Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers and James Corden on Tuesday all riffed on the State Department’s blocking of Gordon Sondland (the U.S. ambassador to the European Union) from giving a deposition before a House panel earlier in the day and the eight-page letter that the White House sent to House leaders saying it will not cooperate with the inquiry.

“Say what you will, Trump is really hitting his stride when it comes to obstructing justice,” joked “The Late Late Show” host Corden, likening it to “when you’re a kid and your brother goes from ‘I didn’t do anything wrong’ and then suddenly he’s like ‘please don’t tell mom.’”

Check out Corden’s take on the events here:

Lara Trump on possible Hillary Clinton presidential run: ‘Let’s do that’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6093301851001_6093297474001-vs Lara Trump on possible Hillary Clinton presidential run: 'Let's do that' Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/the-clintons fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article a4eb67c8-0037-5019-8856-2434b697a6f5

Trump 2020 campaign senior adviser Lara Trump welcomed a possible Hillary Clinton presidential run in 2020, saying she was confident the president would defeat Clinton again.

“First of all, I just want to double down on the president and say if Hillary Clinton would like round two with Donald Trump, please let’s do that,” the wife of the president’s son Eric Trump said Tuesday night on “Hannity.”

“I would love to see a round two between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton because I think we all remember, Sean, not too long ago, all the media said that she was going to be the next president. We see Donald Trump in the White House now.”

“I would love to see a round two between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.”

— Lara trump, Trump 2020 campaign senior adviser

MICHAEL GOODWIN: HILLARY CLINTON NEEDS TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT AGAIN — OR GET OVER IT ALREADY

Clinton had sparked speculation about a possible run after she responded a tweet by the president Monday.

“I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” the president wrote. “Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting ‘C’ Subpoena!”

“Don’t tempt me. Do your job,” Clinton tweeted back.

Lara Trump said if Clinton ran in 2020, the president would win easily.

“It would be so easy to win but I think it’s going to be easy to win with any of these candidates,” she said. “You’re talking about Elizabeth Warren now, who does look to be, I guess, the best hope they have. Maybe that’s why they’re trying to bring Hillary back out because they see how bad all these candidates really are.”

“Donald Trump is going to win because the American people feel the results of the Trump presidency every single day.”

— Lara Trump, Trump 2020 campaign senior adviser

Trump declared that even as Democrats push impeachment, her father-in-law the president would ultimately prevail.

“Donald Trump is going to win because the American people feel the results of the Trump presidency every single day,” she said. “So if it’s Elizabeth Warren, if it’s Hillary Clinton, we’re ready.”

Hannity: Moderate Democrats ‘complicit’ in ‘coup’ if they don’t condemn Trump impeachment inquiry

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6093301846001_6093306085001-vs Hannity: Moderate Democrats 'complicit' in 'coup' if they don't condemn Trump impeachment inquiry Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc d3a6deae-902a-5d85-bda5-2feedafef431 article

Sean Hannity ran down the Trump-Ukraine controversy as he sees it Tuesday, ripping Democrats and warning they may pay for their actions at the polls in 2020.

“Let’s recap ‘non-whistleblower’ whistleblower: Registered Democrat, clear political bias, professional relationship with one of the 2020 Democrats who want to beat Trump,” Hannity said on his television show. “His complaint based on hearsay, not firsthand knowledge, and also media reports. It doesn’t even matter what his complaint claimed. We know now from the transcript what was said and what wasn’t said, don’t we?”

SCHIFF SAYS ‘WE’ DIDN’T TALK TO WHISTLEBLOWER — THEN BACKTRACKS

The White House outlined in a defiant eight-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats on Tuesday why it will not participate in their “illegitimate and unconstitutional” impeachment inquiry, charging that the proceedings have run roughshod over congressional norms and the president’s due-process rights.

Hannity defended President Trump for his Ukraine phone call and labeled Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., liars.

“By the way, the call in question shows no quid pro quo. Nothing,” Hannity added. “But then you’ve got the cowardly Adam Schiff, a known congenital liar. Then you’ve got Nancy Pelosi, another liar who has lost all control over her party in the House.”

The host accused Democrats of wanting to “boot a duly elected president from office.”

Hannity also warned moderate House Democrats representing pro-Trump districts to speak out against the impeachment inquiry or else they would be viewed as “complicit.”

“These so-called moderates — in other words, the Democrats that live in districts that Donald Trump won in 2016 — if they don’t speak out against this unconstitutional attempted coup and witch hunt they would be complicit in … what is an illegal attempt to override the will of the American voter,” Hannity said.

Fox News’ Gregg Re and John Roberts contributed to this report.

Meghan McCain on husband Ben Domenech: ‘Conservative men have better family values’

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Meghan McCain on husband Ben Domenech: 'Conservative men have better family values'

“The View” co-host, 34, revealed in an op-ed for the New York Times Friday that she lost a pregnancy weeks ago. USA TODAY

Meghan McCain is opening up about her marriage. 

The “View” co-host praised the family values of her conservative pundit husband Ben Domenech during an appearance on “The Ben Shapiro Show Sunday Special” over the weekend. 

“When we went out the first time, I was like, this is a totally different vibe and it’s way better. I tell women: Conservative men have better family values, and they take dating and family and marriage more seriously,” McCain told Shapiro.

She continued: “I think if you’re serious, which I was when I met my husband, about getting married and having kids and wanting to go to the next phase, I just found … finally dating a conservative man was the one. He took it seriously.”

Meghan McCain speaks her mind:7 times ‘The View’ host has been blunt about her opinions

McCain tied the knot to Domenech in November 2017 at her family’s ranch in Sedona, Arizona. 

Their relationship came as a surprise to many, including McCain herself, after Domenech publicly slammed the idea of dating her on Twitter in 2012. 

“Nobody is more surprised by the man I ended up marrying than me,” McCain said. “I say that with supreme love and respect. I’m deeply in love and he’s the best decision I’ve ever made, but he’s the most conservative man I’ve ever met.”

McCain said Domenech was a huge support system during “the worst year of my life between August of 2018 and August of 2019,” referring to her recent miscarriage and the death of her father, Arizona Sen. John McCain. 

“My husband has been the most incredible (man),” she shared. “I hope every woman has the kind of husband I have. I say that as someone who dated every (expletive) in West Hollywood possible before I met my husband.”

Great white shark bites into scuba diver’s kayak, leaves 2 teeth behind

A great white shark apparently lost a couple of teeth when it chomped into a scuba diver’s kayak off Catalina Island in Southern California last weekend.

Danny McDaniel told The Los Angeles Times he felt something move his kayak on Saturday. At first, he thought it was his friend in another kayak, bumping into him, but then he realized it was the shark’s head.

“I saw the snout of the shark over the back of the kayak,” he said. “Then I followed the snout up and there’s a giant, immense body off to the right side of the boat.”

“I saw the snout of the shark over the back of the kayak. Then I followed the snout up and there’s a giant, immense body off to the right side of the boat.”

— Danny McDaniel , scuba diver

The shark turned the kayak 180 degrees, bit into it and swam away, he said.

The teeth are each two inches long, which suggests the shark was about 19 feet long, The Times reported.

McDaniel, a veteran diver, said he has swum with sharks before but has never encountered one this big.

There were about 12 great white shark sightings in the area last summer and this specific shark has been seen several times in the last two weeks, Chris Lowe, director of the Shark Lab at Cal State Long Beach, said.

“This is the new normal. We have to share the ocean with them,” he told The Times. “We should always be thinking there may be sharks here — but that doesn’t necessarily mean we should be scared.”

Lowe said great whites are typically shy but will come closer when they’re curious.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani blasted U.S. Sen. Cory Booker on Tuesday night, after the New Jersey Democrat attacked him as “despicable” for his work as President Trump’s personal attorney.

“The guy was a terrible mayor,” Giuliani said, noting Booker was formerly mayor of Newark, the crime- and poverty-ridden largest city in the Garden State.

“I was the mayor of a city and I turned it around,” Giuliani said. “He was a mayor of a city and they had more crime when he left than when he came in.”

During the same appearance on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” Giuliani also dismissed Booker’s apparent eagerness to question him at any potential Senate hearing regarding Trump administration actions.

In a recent CNN interview, Booker told “AC360” host Anderson Cooper he would “savor the opportunity” to interrogate Giuliani.

“I would — and especially if it’s done publicly,” he said.

“I know Rudy Giuliani is from New York — very close to Broadway — he loves the theatrics. His behavior has been despicable, and the lies and half-truths and the deception that he’s been doing at the direction of this president and beyond is unbecoming.”

On “The Ingraham Angle,” Giuliani scoffed at the idea he should be anxious to have Booker question him.

“Gee, I don’t know if I can handle it — he’s a really tough guy — he really scares me,” Giuliani said sarcastically. “Newark is doing fabulous.”

Earlier in the interview, Giuliani also responded to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham considering inviting him to testify before that committee to detail his allegations about former Vice President Joe Biden and his dealings with Ukraine.

Giuliani said he has to “weigh” the decision with Trump and other people involved.

“It’s not a unitary decision,” he said.
