Passenger shamed for using plane air vent to dry ‘sweaty socks’

A passenger’s clammy feet have landed them on the wrong side of social media.

The popular Instagram account Passenger Shaming recently shared a photo of an unidentified passenger holding up their socks to a plane’s air vent.

“The average passenger is really nothing more than a caveman with a smartphone,” one quipped.

“Underwear or socks, which is worse? I can’t decide,” another wrote, along with a sick-face emoji.

“Just threw up a little,” another wrote.

“Seriously…what’s wrong with people???” another pondered.

The Passenger Shaming account routinely anonymously calls out travelers for their antics. Most recently, a video of two people on a plane having an argument over a window shade went viral.

The clip of the bizarre exchange goes on for over two minutes showing the two men disagreeing over whether the window shade should be open or shut.

Hill and Holmes Impeachment Hearings: What We’ve Learned So Far

Westlake Legal Group 21dc-hilights-vid-facebookJumbo Hill and Holmes Impeachment Hearings: What We’ve Learned So Far Ukraine Trump, Donald J Trump-Ukraine Whistle-Blower Complaint and Impeachment Inquiry State Department Sondland, Gordon D (1957- ) Russian Interference in 2016 US Elections and Ties to Trump Associates Russia Republican Party Nunes, Devin G Holmes, David (Diplomat) Hill, Fiona (1965- ) Diplomatic Service, Embassies and Consulates Democratic Party

WASHINGTON — David Holmes, a career diplomat and political counselor to the United States embassy in Ukraine, and Fiona Hill, a former Europe and Russia expert at the White House, schooled lawmakers on Thursday on the United States’ geopolitical relationship with Ukraine and provided some new details about the efforts to pressure Ukraine to announce investigations into President Trump’s political rivals.

They both highlighted their apolitical and nonpartisan expertise and experience in foreign policy, a direct contrast to the witness a day earlier, Gordon D. Sondland, the United States ambassador to the European Union — a wealthy Republican donor with no diplomatic experience before his 2018 appointment to the plum post in Brussels.

Here are some key points from the testimony so far.

Holmes: “This was a very distinctive experience. I’ve never seen anything like this in my foreign service career, someone at a lunch in a restaurant making a call on a cellphone to the president of the United States, being able to hear his voice, very distinctive personality.”

Mr. Holmes provided more details on Thursday about the now infamous lunch he had with Mr. Sondland and two other State Department staffers on July 26 in Kyiv. It was at this lunch that Mr. Holmes overheard a phone call between Mr. Sondland and Mr. Trump — one in which Mr. Trump asked Mr. Sondland if the Ukrainian president planned “to do the investigation.”

Mr. Holmes described a relaxed setting at an outdoor terrace with the weather that day in the upper 70s. Mr. Sondland ordered a bottle of wine, he said, which the four of them shared, and discussed marketing strategies for Mr. Sondland’s boutique hotel business.

The additional details add more credibility to Mr. Holmes’s recollection, which Republicans have tried to diminish. Mr. Sondland on Wednesday told lawmakers that he did not remember all of the details of that conversation with Mr. Trump, but he agreed that a friendly comment recalled by Mr. Holmes — Mr. Sondland telling the president that President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine “loves your ass” — sounded like something he would say.

Mr. Trump on Thursday said that what Mr. Holmes described — a conversation that was not on speaker phone but could still be overheard — was virtually impossible.

Holmes: “Specifically, the three priorities of security, economy, and justice, and our support for Ukrainian democratic resistance to Russian aggression, became overshadowed by a political agenda promoted by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and a cadre of officials operating with a direct channel to the White House.”

Mr. Holmes describes what other witnesses have disclosed — that the sudden involvement of President Trump’s private lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, in foreign policy involving Ukraine was disruptive and damaging to the American goal of helping Ukraine defend itself against Russia. While Mr. Holmes described how the Giuliani-led campaign evolved starting in March, Representative Devin Nunes, Republican of California and the ranking member on the House Intelligence committee, focused on one date — July 25 — when Mr. Trump and Mr. Zelensky spoke to each other by phone. That call was at the center of the whistle-blower complaint that led to the current impeachment inquiry.

Hill: “Based on questions and statements I have heard, some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country — and that perhaps, somehow, for some reason, Ukraine did. This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves.”

Hill: “I would ask that you please not promote politically driven falsehoods that so clearly advance Russian interests.”

Dr. Hill bluntly stated that Russia was behind the 2016 election interference and theft of Democrats’ emails. American intelligence agencies and congressional panels came to the same conclusion years ago. One of the investigations that Mr. Trump sought Ukraine to initiative was one looking into a debunked theory that Ukraine, not Russia, hacked the Democratic National Committee in 2016.

Hill: “I refuse to be part of an effort to legitimize an alternate narrative that the Ukrainian government is a U.S. adversary, and that Ukraine — not Russia — attacked us in 2016.”

One of the Republican defenses for Mr. Trump’s decision to place a hold on nearly $400 million in military aid is that he was always suspicious of Ukraine because of its systemic corruption. This, Republicans say, is why he wanted a commitment from Mr. Zelensky to pursue corruption investigations. Dr. Hill, in her opening remarks, attempted to shut down this and other theories, often promoted by the committee’s top Republican, Mr. Nunes, who described the impeachment hearings as “bizarre” on Thursday.

Rugby player takes metaphor to extreme with bizarre interview about getting back in saddle

An English rugby player took sports clichés to an entirely different level Wednesday when talking about his next match in a bizarre interview which has now gone viral.

Joe Marler, who plays for London-based Harlequins in the Gallagher Premiership, was previewing the club’s next match against Bath and essentially said his team needed to get back in the saddle.

ISRAEL FOLAU CLAIMS AUSTRALIA WILDFIRES RESULT OF COUNTRY LEGALIZING SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, ABORTION

Out of the gate, Marler explained his team’s disappointment following a 53-21 loss to French side Clermont Auvergne.

“I wasn’t hurting as much as the lads who were out there, but I definitely felt it and I know how hard the boys have taken that. They will be disappointed with the account that we put out,” Marler said, a fairly standard response for a sportsman after a bad defeat.

But we have got another week to get back on the horse, you know, and take that horse to the water. And you can ask that horse, you can say ‘hey, horsey, do you want to have a drink, or do you want to swim?’ It’s up to that horse to then realize what he wants to do in his life.

— Joe Marler

US RUGBY TEAM RECEIVES SUPPORT FROM PATRIOTS’ TOM BRADY, NATE EBNER BEFORE WORLD CUP MATCH

The interview then took a bizarre turn, however, when Marler added: “But we have got another week to get back on the horse, you know, and take that horse to the water. And you can ask that horse, you can say ‘hey, horsey, do you want to have a drink, or do you want to swim?’ It’s up to that horse to then realize what he wants to do in his life.”

He goes onto do an impression of an Irish talking horse that wants to greet fans at the club’s home stadium.

“That horse, at the moment, wants to go out on Saturday, he wants to clippity-clop all the way to The Stoop [the stadium] and he wants to say ‘Hello’ to those fans.

“And he goes ‘I’m sorry about the result last week, but I’m going to give a better performance here at home against Bath.’ He’s a slightly Irish horse. So we are looking forward, like I say, to getting back on that horse.”

Just to be clear, Marler said there’s no way he’s riding that horse.

“I don’t like horses. I can’t ride,” he said.

The 29-year-old prop has been with the Harlequins since 2009 and has made 193 appearances with the club. He’s also appeared in 62 matches for England’s national team.

Andy Cohen is thrilled by Adam Schiff comparison, calls him a ‘patriot’ after Stephen Colbert jab

Andy Cohen says he is thrilled to be compared to Rep. Adam Schiff, whom he described as “a patriot.”

The “Watch What Happens Live” host made his comments after learning that he was name-dropped by “Late Show” host, Stephen Colbert, in a lengthy monologue earlier this week titled “Don and the Giant Impeach,” about the ongoing public impeachment hearings against President Trump.

Schiff, as chair of the Intelligence Committee, is one of the lead investigators in the impeachment inquiry.

‘WATCH WHAT HAPPENS LIVE’ HOST ANDY COHEN ANNOUNCES BIRTH OF SON

Specifically, Colbert highlighted the moment in which Schiff read tweets from Trump attacking former Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, in real time during the hearings.

“Wow, he’s reading Trump’s nasty comment right to her on live TV. It’s like he’s the Andy Cohen of Congress,” Colbert said before launching into a lighthearted impression of Cohen.

“No, you’re kidding!” Cohen exclaimed when made aware of the clip by Yahoo Lifestyle. “I love it!”

ANDY COHEN ACCUSES KATHY GRIFFIN OF LYING ABOUT HIM AFTER ‘DOG’ COMMENT: ‘I HOPE SHE FINDS SOME PEACE’

“It’s great. Adam Schiff is a patriot, and so am I,” he continued. “I’m flattered to be in the same sentence as Adam Schiff. And Stephen Colbert.”

It seems the Bravo host isn’t offended by Colbert’s impression one bit. In fact, the conversation got him to talk about how he handles criticism and negative press attention, especially in the wake of recent backlash he caught over a photo with his infant son.

“I posted a picture of me with Ben on a boat in front of the Statue of Liberty and I was holding him up and everyone’s like, ‘He doesn’t have a life jacket on!’ And I was like, ‘Oh that’s funny,’” he said. “People will always pick something to criticize you on, and so I know myself, and I know the reality of every situation, and so I just ignore it. It’s stupid.”

Michael Moore says Democrats’ ‘Job One’ is removing Trump from ‘our White House’

Filmmaker Michael Moore said that Democrats’ first job is to remove Donald Trump from “our White House” before the 2020 election while commenting on the fifth Democratic primary debate.

The “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 11/9” moviemaker appeared on MSNBC Wednesday to comment on how the Democratic hopefuls for the 2020 nomination performed in the debate. He was asked by Brian Williams where the candidates’ focus should be following the explosive public impeachment hearings earlier in the day.

“Well, yes, of course, Job One is beating — actually, Job One is convicting and removing Donald Trump sometime in the next couple of months,” he said.

Moore continued, “So, it’s like if you really want to go to No. 1.  After what we heard today, he shouldn’t be there in that White House, in our White House, another single day. Somebody said earlier on one of the shows here that — that in the — in the old days, there would be a delegation of Republicans going up to the White House today to say, ‘You know what? That’s it.’”

The 65-year-old went on to suggest that Democrats across the board should not only be focused on removing Trump from office, but his enablers on the right as well.

“So, that’s Job One. Job One for the election next year is to make sure that we not only get rid of Trump or Trump’s replacement, but we get rid of that which gave us Trump. That’s really what the real issue should be.”

Moore, who previously gave his endorsement to Bernie Sanders, noted that he and the candidate share similar views on the working class in America.

“I said, the majority of the working class actually — are women, people of color and young people — are paid the least. So, when we say working class, it’s always, we’re always evoking this image of lunch bucket Joe. The actual working class of 2019 is a 30-year-old black woman. That’s really the working class. And when you say working class, I want everybody to always think, now, that’s a 30-year-old black woman, because that is what the working class is.”

Senate Approves Short-Term Spending Bill to Avoid a Shutdown

Westlake Legal Group 00dc-spending-facebookJumbo Senate Approves Short-Term Spending Bill to Avoid a Shutdown United States Politics and Government Senate McConnell, Mitch Federal Budget (US)

WASHINGTON — Congress gave final approval on Thursday to a stopgap spending bill that would punt the threat of a government shutdown to just before Christmas, setting up a potential clash over federal spending just as the House could be weighing whether to impeach President Trump.

Hours before funding was set to lapse on Thursday, the Senate voted to postpone the spending fight, approving a measure to extend funding through Dec. 20 for all federal government departments and agencies, as well as a number of health care and community programs. That deadline sets up a potentially climactic series of votes in late December, when lawmakers could be considering impeachment articles against Mr. Trump while racing to avert a holiday season government shutdown.

Lawmakers remain divided over funding Mr. Trump’s signature promise to build a wall at the southern border — the same issue that led to the pre-Christmas government shutdown nearly a year ago, which stretched into January and became the nation’s longest. By a vote of 74 to 20, the Senate agreed to the temporary measure, haunted by the consequences of the 35-day shutdown that lasted into January. The measure having received a slim bipartisan majority in the House earlier this week. It will now go to the president, who was expected to sign it later Thursday.

“These are things we must do,” said Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, lamenting the lack of a full-year spending package as well as other legislative priorities at a news conference on Tuesday.

“There are plenty of optional things that aren’t being done because we can’t philosophically agree on them,” he said, “But government spending, the defense bill we passed each year since 1961, the trade agreement with Mexico and Canada sitting there un-acted upon? Really, this is outrageous and needs to come to a stop.”

Lawmakers now have four weeks to resolve the dozen spending bills that have to pass to ensure the government is funded for the remainder of the fiscal year, which began on Oct. 1. The process so far has been muddied by a partisan divide over funding Mr. Trump’s border wall and replacing money that he has unilaterally reallocated to the construction of the wall.

“I’m optimistic that the passage of the continuing resolution today is something Congress can build from,” Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of New York and the minority leader, said of the spending bill on the Senate floor Thursday, “a sign that appropriators from both sides of the aisle are ready to work together to settle government funding by the end of the calendar year.”

Dad punishes teen daughter with now-viral social media takeover

One Texas teenager has likely learned her lesson after her parents took over her Instagram, Snapchat and Tik Tok accounts for two weeks as a punishment.

The girl’s dad has since shot to social media stardom after posting hilarious videos and silly selfies online – though his daughter reportedly says the end of the two-week penalty can’t come quickly enough.

Tawyna Ford and Larry Sumpter of Denton were not thrilled to learn that their daughter Madelynn, 15, recently helped sneak boys into a sleepover party, and carefully deliberated over the best course of discipline. The couple decided to let their high school sophomore choose between going one month without her cell phone, or, alternatively, two weeks without the device and relinquishing control of her various social media pages to her parents, Today reports.

Madelynn confidently elected to go two weeks without her phone – though her mom admits that the teen has lived to regret the decision.

Since the takeover began on Nov. 11, Sumpter has gotten creative with TikTok videos, receiving over 26,000 views via Facebook of one must-see lip sync clip in which he danced around in a cropped tank, bare belly, jean shorts and cowboy boots. Ford and the couple’s young son also made an appearance in a rap video, captioned with clever hashtags “#MakeBetterChoices” and “#Parenting Win.”

Sumpter has similarly taken to Instagram to share entertaining photos, like a shot of an embarrassed-looking Maddi, and playful selfies with captions like “I wonder what Maddi is doing without her phone[?]”

According to Ford, Madelynn is more than ready for the stunt to be over and done with.

“After the first day, Madelynn was like, ‘I changed my mind, I choose the one month. Larry told her, ‘No. I’m too invested.’ I have too many ideas. We’re sticking with the two weeks,’” Ford recalled. “He’s loving it. I think he’s going to make his own TikTok account when this over.

“We’re always down to embarrass our kids!” the mom joked.
