Paul Rudd, Jimmy Fallon And James Corden Are The Mean Girls Of NATO On ‘SNL’

Westlake Legal Group 5ded0cf0240000e0035a2a60 Paul Rudd, Jimmy Fallon And James Corden Are The Mean Girls Of NATO On ‘SNL’

The “cool kids” of NATO had a message for President Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend: You can’t sit with us.

Trump’s humiliation at the NATO summit last week provided fodder for the late-night sketch show’s cold open, which turned the hot mic clip featuring Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appearing to mock the president, into a “Mean Girls”-style cafeteria face-off. 

Since the limit does not exist for Alec Baldwin appearances on “SNL,” he was back to play Trump. Jimmy Fallon appeared as Trudeau, while Paul Rudd and James Corden played French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, respectively, who were also seen discussing Trump in the viral video. 

“Did you see him speak for 45 minutes the other day?” a heavily accented Rudd asks in the sketch. “It was just supposed to be for a photo.”

“Well, if I looked like him, I’d try to distract the photographer, too,” Fallon’s Trudeau jokes. 

When Baldwin’s Trump enters the room with a stack of hamburgers on his lunch tray, the trio shuns him from its table because the three don’t want to see him “talk and chew at the same time.”

They proceed to make fun of him behind his back ― and then stick an “Impeach Me!” sign directly on it ― as Trump resigns himself to eating with the decidedly not cool leader of Latvia. 

“Oh, my God, I’m at the loser table!” Baldwin’s Trump realizes. “I can’t believe they made me sit with the foreign kid.”

Kate McKinnon also appears as an Obama-loving German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who equally delights in Trump’s continued embarrassment. 

But before the teasing gets too out of hand, Cecily Strong’s Melania Trump cuts in with an anti-bullying PSA as part of her “Be Best” initiative. 

“Bullying is a serious problem … especially against President Trump,” an always-game Strong says. 

“I’d like to tell you about Peleton. Are you a scared woman trapped inside a mansion?” she continues, referencing the much-derided holiday ad. “Why not imagine biking away from it all on Peloton?”

Westlake Legal Group  43 Dead In 'Extremely Horrific' Fire At New Delhi Factory

A fire that swept through a factory where laborers were sleeping on Sunday morning, killing at least 43 people. Relatives of the victims gathered outside a hospital mortuary in the city on Sunday.

A fire broke out at a factory in India’s capital New Delhi early on Sunday morning. At least 43 people have been reported dead.

Many of the victims were asleep in beds in the factory, resting between shifts, when the fire began.

Investigators say the blaze was sparked by an electrical short circuit. Most of the deaths were caused by people inhaling poisonous gases in the cramped factory, The Associated Press reports.

One man who lives in the area, Mohammed Naushad, told the AP that he had awoken to see the flames shooting from a fourth-floor window of the building. He went into the building, and on the third floor he saw 20 or 25 people lying on the floor.

“I don’t know if they were dead or unconscious, but they were not moving,” Naushad said. He carried out at least 10 people on his shoulders.

The fire broke out in a crowded quarter known for large wholesale markets.

Most of the victims were Muslim migrant workers who came from the Eastern state of Bihar, the AP reports, earning as little as $2.10 a day making a variety of garments. The BBC reports that about 100 people were sleeping in the factory when the fire broke out.

The area is so narrow that firetrucks couldn’t reach the factory, and had to shoot water from 100 yards away.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi called the fire “extremely horrific” and said his thoughts were with those who lost loved ones or were injured. His office promised financial assistance from the national relief fund to those seriously injured in the fire, and the families of those who died.

Deadly fires are a regular occurrence in India, as zoning laws and safety regulations are often ignored. A local fire chief told the BBC that the building was operating illegally as a factory and lacked a fire license.

Local residents told the AP the building was full of raw plastic material.

Babar Ali, 32, rescued his sister-in-law from the fire. He told the AP that the lives of migrant workers was “a bigger tragedy than their death,” as they struggle to earn a living while working long shifts in unsafe conditions.

“Their only fault was they were poor,” Ali said. “Why else would someone work and sleep in such a congested place?”

Rapper Juice WRLD Dies At 21

Westlake Legal Group 5ded18ba240000e0035a2a66 Rapper Juice WRLD Dies At 21

Chicago rapper Juice WRLD, 21, died Sunday, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed to HuffPost.

A spokeswoman said an autopsy has not been performed at this time and declined to comment further.

Juice WRLD, whose real name is Jarad Anthony Higgins, suffered a seizure in Chicago Midway International Airport after a flight from California early Sunday morning, TMZ first reported. Higgins died after being rushed to the hospital, according to the outlet.

Perhaps best known for his song “Lucid Dreams” ― a dreary love ballad interpolating Sting’s “Shape of My Heart” ― Juice WRLD was among a burgeoning class of popular rappers whose lyrical content focused heavily on his haunting experiences with mental illness and the self-injurious ways he coped with it. His style, which deployed his gravelly whine over dark-sounding instrumentals, was classified by some as “emo rap.”

Juice WRLD’s debut album, “Goodbye & Good Riddance,” was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America in 2018 and peaked at No. 6 on Billboard’s most popular albums for that year. His list of collaborations spanned genres, as he worked with artists including Future and Panic at the Disco.

An Instagram post on Juice WRLD’s account said the artist was celebrating his birthday last week.

Southwest Airlines passenger says flight attendant complained about ‘Muslim woman’ for ‘making people uncomfortable’

Westlake Legal Group Southwest-airlines Southwest Airlines passenger says flight attendant complained about 'Muslim woman' for 'making people uncomfortable' Michael Hollan fox-news/travel/general/airlines fox news fnc/travel fnc d72b242d-2750-54fb-810f-dc5e9658d688 article

A man traveling on Southwest Airlines says his wife was called out by a flight attendant for making other passengers “uncomfortable.”

Journalist Mehdi Hasan shared his story on Twitter, where he says a flight attendant confronted his wife after she asked to switch seats with another passenger so she could sit with her family. According to Hasan, the flight attendant “complained about the Muslim woman” to ground staff.

The flight, which occurred over the Thanksgiving holiday, was operating on an “open-seating policy,” which meant that passengers didn’t have assigned locations and seats were picked as passengers boarded on a first-come, first-served basis, The Sun reports.

On his Twitter account, Hasan posted, “Hey Southwest Air: not a good look for your flight attendant on SW5539 to DC last night to loudly tell a brown woman in a headscarf she’ll be ‘escorted off the plane’ for making people feel ‘uncomfortable’ — because she wanted to sit with her husband & kids!”

Hasan continued his story, explaining how the flight attendant seemingly escalated the situation. “The flight attendant called ground staff onto the plane,” he continued, “complained about the Muslim woman — my wife! — to them, & escalated rather than de-escalated the situation — simply because my wife politely asked a guy if he’d give up his seat for our family (which he was fine with!).”

The Twitter thread also explained that other passengers and airline employees wondered why the flight attendant “wouldn’t shut up and let things go so we could take off.”

Later on, Hasan posted an update saying that Southwest Airlines had apologized to him “privately,” but refused to do so publicly.

In a statement obtained by The Sun, a spokesperson for Southwest Airlines said, “From our initial discussions, we understand that some Passengers on Flight 5539 were involved in a disagreement over seat selection near the end of boarding. The Family was able to sit together and the flight arrived safely in Washington, D.C. on Sunday night. We remain in communication with the customer who sent the tweet and are working to address his concerns directly.”

The company later replied to the original Twitter thread, where it posted, “I can only empathize with the depths of you and your family’s feelings on this matter, and I’m sorry that we don’t have another resolution to offer. You have my assurances that the events as you have described them were carefully documented.”

Fox News reached out to Southwest Airlines for comment, but they did not immediately reply.

Paul Batura: This is one shortage Americans may not want to face

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6074404853001_6074407656001-vs Paul Batura: This is one shortage Americans may not want to face Paul Batura fox-news/opinion fox-news/food-drink/food fox-news/food-drink fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 20d69651-cd58-58d4-9c6d-06c9c7da05b4

From wartime rationing of aluminum and electricity in the 1940s to long gas lines during the energy crisis of the 1970s, America has faced its share of serious and consequential shortages over the years.

But now french fries?

Cold and wet weather across the heartland has resulted in a depressed potato crop this year, a fact that threatens and complicates restauranteurs’ ability to serve America’s favorite side dish of sliced and fried strips of potato.

FRENCH FRIES SHORTAGE POSSIBLY LOOMING AFTER POTATO CROPS DAMAGED BY WEATHER

Say it ain’t so!

According to the U.S. Agriculture Department, the average person eats over 115 pounds of potatoes a year — and more than two-thirds of them in the form of a processed potato product, with fries leading the way.

Potato shortages can be no laughing matter, of course. Ireland’s “Great Potato Famine” between 1845 and 1849 not only caused over one million deaths but also forever changed the country’s demography and culture — and the world’s, for that matter.

More from Opinion

If you think about it, millions of us who enjoy an Irish heritage can trace our very existence and American citizenship back to the shortage of potatoes. Faced with a bleak future on “The Emerald Isle,” my mother’s great grandmother emigrated to New York in the 1860s. Over a half-million joined her.

The upside of misfortune — the silver lining of a dark cloud — is almost never appreciated in the midst of the turmoil. It’s only after the fact when we’re able to connect the dots, that we’re able to see how good things often come from bad.

I feel bad for America’s farmers who are struggling, not just over a bad spud crop this season, but who are constantly battling the elements and weathering the storms in order that we may enjoy fine and affordable food.

It’s fair to say that we take our nation’s agricultural workers for granted. Often working long hours, and in very challenging weather, they’re heroes in my book. Techniques and traditions have changed, but President Dwight Eisenhower, who hailed from Kansas, was right when he said, “Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you’re a thousand miles from the cornfield.”

Our nation’s love affair with the french fry goes back to our founding. Historians will tell you that Thomas Jefferson’s White House table included “potatoes served in the French manner.” But it wasn’t until the explosion of fast-food restaurants in the middle of the 20th century that fries became an accompanying staple with such favorites as hamburgers, chicken and hot dogs.

Our nation’s love affair with the french fry goes back to our founding. Historians will tell you that Thomas Jefferson’s White House table included “potatoes served in the French manner.”

Growing up, french fries were hands down my favorite vegetable. My first memory of them dates back to being 4 or 5 years old. Nunley’s was a classic old amusement park located just a block away from our house in Baldwin on Long Island. Opened in 1940, the centerpiece of the park was an ornate carousel, a magnificent ride that first operated on Brooklyn’s waterfront.

But it was the snack bar beside the high-dome ceilinged room that drew my greatest attention and affection. Behind a long counter stood two or three burly men in white outfits who were hunched over sizzling, stainless steel fry cookers. They used to serve fries in white paper sacks and the hot grease always threatened to break through the bottom of the bag.

If you’re a fan of the french fry, you likely have your favorite cut — thin or thick, waffle or curly, seasoned or plain. I prefer thin and extra crispy. Just before my mom died, we stopped at Sonic one day and introduced her to tater tots. She said she couldn’t believe she had survived almost 80 years without them.

Because this is the 21st century and smart people solve all kinds of problems far more complex than too few American potatoes, I’m sure none of us will go for want of french fries this coming year.

But even if we did, like those of us who enjoy American citizenship because of a previous potato shortage, we’d probably be better off in the long run
