Team Trump Isn't Even Hiding Its Support for QAnon Kooks Anymore
The Trump campaign and a top House Republican group are rallying around a QAnon conspiracy theorist expected to win a seat in the House this November, even attacking a GOP lawmaker who criticized the conspiracy theory that the FBI considers a domestic terrorism threat. QAnon believer Marjorie Taylor Greene won a Republican primary run-off in Georgia's 14th Congressional District on Tuesday. Because Greene's district is heavily Republican, her primary win all but guarantees that a QAnon supporter will take a spot in Congress in November.Until now, leading Republicans have typically avoided openly embracing the party's QAnon supporters, who follow a series of internet clues that have been posted by a mysterious figure called "Q" since October 2017. QAnon believers embrace a theory of the world that imagines Trump is engaged in a secret war against a pedophile-cannibal "cabal" in the Democratic Party, Hollywood, and other institutions. The Shocking Secret Past of One of QAnon's Most Toxic StarsQAnon believers are obsessed with a moment called "The Storm," the much-awaited day they believe Trump will order mass-arrests of his political opponents and either imprison them in Guantanamo Bay or subject them to military execution. The FBI considers QAnon a potential domestic terror threat, and QAnon believers have allegedly committed two murders, a terrorist incident, and plotted two child abductions, among other crimes. Top GOP leaders have embraced Greene now that she has won the nomination. Donald Trump praised her in a tw

Mike Pence ‘Can't Wait' for Kamala Harris Showdown: ‘It's On,' He Says, Grimacing
Vice President Mike Pence cannot contain his excitement (or dread?) about facing off against Kamala Harris on the debate stage. In an interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday night, half grimacing and half apparently swallowing back a little sob, the former Indiana governor told the Fox News host he "can't wait" to take on Harris during the vice presidential debate in Utah on Oct. 7. "I just have to tell you, I like the matchup. It's on, Sean," he said with a pained expression. After claiming the Democratic ticket had been "overtaken by the radical left," Pence spent most of the interview regurgitating Trump campaign talking points and gushing over the president, who he said is a sure bet to win the Nov. 3 election. "I can't wait to get back out there. I'll be in Iowa tomorrow telling the story of what this president has done, how we made this country stronger, more prosperous in our first three years, how President Trump has seen us through the worst pandemic in 100 years ..." "I think the American people are going to vote for four more years of President Donald Trump in the White House," he said, citing recent unrest in Chicago and Portland as a reason for voters to avoid "radical" Harris and Biden.  Asked about Harris' infamous takedown of Biden during the Democratic debates, Pence told Hannity the former California attorney general's ruthless prosecutorial skills are no match for Trump's dazzling track record: "I think she is a skilled debater, but I can't wait to get to Salt

For new book, Bob Woodward obtained 'extraordinary' letters between Trump and Kim Jong Un
Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Bob Woodward's new book about President Trump now has a name: Rage.Rage is scheduled for release on Sept. 15, and people familiar with the book's contents told CNN it goes into detail about how Trump makes decisions and his thoughts on the coronavirus pandemic, national security, and the Black Lives Matter protests.Rage will be published by Simon & Schuster, the same company behind recent tell-alls by former National Security Adviser John Bolton and the president's niece, Mary Trump. CEO Jonathan Karp told CNN Rage is "the most important book Simon & Schuster will publish this year. Every voter should read it before Nov. 3."In January, Trump announced that he sat down with Woodward for the book; he ignored earlier interview requests from Woodward when the author was working on his 2018 tome, Fear, and criticized the book after it was published. CNN reports that Woodward recorded hundreds of hours of interviews with Trump and other people close to him and the White House, and also obtained "notes, emails, diaries, calendars, and confidential documents," including 25 personal letters between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.A person familiar with the letters called them "extraordinary," and Simon & Schuster revealed that in one of them, "Kim describes the bond between the two leaders as out of a 'fantasy film.'"More stories from The case against American truck bloat Trump's pay

'The Crown': Jonathan Pryce Cast as Prince Phillip for Final Two Seasons
"The Crown" has found its Prince Phillip (again) to play opposite Imelda Staunton's Queen Elizabeth for the Netflix drama's final two seasons.Jonathan Pryce will take over the role from Tobias Menzies, who plays Elizabeth's husband in Season 3 and 4, the latter of which debuts later this year. Matt Smith played the young Prince Phillip during the show's first two seasons opposite Claire Foy. The fifth and sixth seasons of the Netflix drama will be the show's last.Pryce joins Staunton and Lesley Manville, who will play Princess Margaret.Also Read: 'The Crown' Season 5 Won't Premiere Until 2022Netflix had initially planned to end the show after the fifth season, before deciding to extend it to six. That means that each version of the cast will have gotten to serve two seasons on the historical drama. "As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons," Creator Peter Morgan said. "To be clear, Series 6 will not bring us any closer to present day - it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail."Pryce is known his roles as the High Sparrow in "Game of Thrones," along with a slew of other films including "Tomorrow Never Dies," "Glengarry Glen Ross" and "Pirates of the Caribbean." Most recently, he received an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Pope Francis i

Our Cartoon President: Season One with World Class Amenities
When political times are bad, humor is often the only remedy. Stephen Colbert tries to help here with an animated parody of President Donald Trump, his family and staff- first seen in small segments on his "Late Show" but expanded to a half-hour series for Showtime (where there's much less content restriction.) Everyone, on both political sides, is depicted here as caricatures as you'd see in newspaper political cartoons- Trump with an orange face and obviously fake hair, his wife Melania looking and talking a bit like "Natasha" from Rocky and Bullwinkle, daughter Ivanka as a stereotypical "valley girl" and (now-former) Attorney General Jeff Sessions oddly as a small gnome-like being, to name just a few. Each episode is given a loose plot that seems to exist mainly just to support the jokes the wri...Read the entire review
