Seth Meyers Blasts Mulvaney and Pompeo's Disastrous Sunday-Show Spin
NBCSeth Meyers had a lot of news to catch up on when he returned from vacation on Monday. And much of it had to do with the Trump administration's failed attempts to clean up its multiple calamities on the Sunday shows over the weekend. The Late Night host began with Trump's "acting" Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, who went on Fox News Sunday to explain why the president announced that he would be holding the G7 conference at his Miami Doral resort in Florida and then reversed his decision after loud protests from both sides of the political aisle. It's Not Just Ronan Farrow: NBC News Killed My Rape-Allegation Story TooStephen Colbert Mocks Mitt Romney's ‘Embarrassing' Secret Twitter Account"He was honestly surprised at the level of pushback," Mulvaney said, adding, "At the end of the day, you know, he still considers himself to be in the hospitality business." "OK, first of all, he's not in the hospitality business, he's the president," Meyers said. "And second, Trump was never in the hospitality business. Hospitality is when you show warmth and compassion to guests and strangers. Trump was in the ruthless-real-estate-asshole-who-stands-like-a-baboon-on-his-hind-legs business." Later, Meyers turned to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who appeared on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos and repeatedly refused to acknowledge Mulvaney's confession that there had, in fact, been a "quid pro quo" with Ukraine. "You could see his brain short-circuit in real time," Meyers said before playing the now

Shark tears Frenchwoman's hands off in attack off Polynesian paradise island
AFrench tourist has lost both her hands in a rare shark attack in the Pacific islands of Polynesia, say emergency services. The 35-year-old woman was swimming during a whale-watching trip on Monday off the island of Mo'orea - a honeymoon destination in the French overseas territory - when the oceanic whitetip shark bit into her chest and arms. "Luckily for her, there were two nurses on the scene who could deliver first aid," firefighter Jean-Jacques Riveta told AFP. "When we got to the hotel jetty, she was conscious but in a critical condition. She had lost a lot of blood and both her hands had been cut off at the forearm," along with part of her chest, he said. She was airlifted to the nearby island of Tahiti, some 11 miles northeast. Her condition is reportedly stable. The conservationist and oceanographic researcher Jacques Cousteau described the oceanic whitetip as "the most dangerous of all sharks", notorious for picking off survivors of shipwrecks or downed aircraft. However, attacks near land are uncommon as it prefers off-shore, deep-ocean areas and rarely approaches the coast. The French tourist was attacked by an oceanic whitetip Credit: Jacek Dybowski/Mercury Press Experts said the sharks, dubbed locally "parata", are known to follow dolphin pods. Pierrick Seybald, president of the Ma'O shark protection foundation and local whale-watching guide, said they can be approached as long as "you always keep eye contact with the shark and adopt appropriate body language with gui

If Stephen Colbert were Trump, he'd be upset with Mick Mulvaney, too
In a long, televised Cabinet meeting Monday, President Trump tried to defend himself from criticism of his aborted decision to host next year's G7 summit at his own golf resort outside Miami, though "of course it wouldn't be a Trump meeting if it didn't go off on some rambling tangent about his rally crowd size," Stephen Colbert said on Monday's Late Show. But "Trump's not the only one defending his right to blow off the Constitution." So is acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, iffily.Mulvaney told Fox News Sunday that Trump still thinks he's in the "hospitality business," Colbert said. "But admitting that the president still thinks he's running a for-profit business isn't even Mulvaney's biggest gaffe of that interview." He backed up a bit to explain how, in Trump's eyes, Mulvaney messed up. "Throughout this impeachment inquiry, the company line from the administration has been there was no 'quid pro quo' between Trump and Ukraine," Colbert said. "First of all, you don't need 'quid pro quo,' it's super illegal anyway. And second, yeah, 'quid pro quo,' and on Thursday, Mulvaney admitted it.""Admitting the thing that Trump is being impeached for turned out to be slightly problematic," so on Fox News Sunday, Mulvaney "unveiled his bulletproof defense: He never actually said 'quid pro quo,'" Colbert said. "He does realize you don't have to say the crime to be guilty of the crime, right? To be convicted of homicide, you don't have to stab somebody while saying, 'Murder, murder, murder, murder.'"Yeah, Trump probably reversed course on the G7 because "it is a bad idea to commit an impeachable offense when you're already being impeached," Seth Meyers said on Late Nigh
