30 Mildly Interesting Photos Taken At Exactly The Right Time

While we definitely have respect for those photographers that think out every shot and aspect of composition, there’s something to be said about having time on your side where photos are concerned. Most of these happy (and unhappy) accidents seem to have had serendipity on their side. That’s something that you really can’t duplicate, no matter how hard you try.

Katie Couric Says Media-Hater Denzel Washington Went After Her During an Interview, Left Her “Shaken”  

Katie Couric has interviewed tons of people during her time as a television host, but there’s is one celebrity interview that continues to stand out in her mind years later for all the wrong reasons.

During an interview with the “Everything Iconic with Danny Pellegrino” podcast this week, Couric recalled interviewing Hollywood A-list star Denzel Washington for his 2004 movie The Manchurian Candidate. The “Dateline NBC” interview quickly went off the rails when Couric asked Washington if “Hollywood folks should stick to acting.”

Denzel doesn’t like the media. He thinks they twist things and spread fake news – so if Katie had done her research, she’d have known that ahead of time.

“I don’t know what Hollywood folks are, first of all,” Washington fired back at the time, according to Fox News. “Hollywood is a town that has some stars on the sidewalk. I don’t know anybody from there. So, I don’t — that’s like saying — calling you a ‘type’ of folks. I’m not a Hollywood folk. I don’t know who they are.”

Couric began to rephrase the question by saying, “Are you one of those people that –” but Washington interrupted her.

“Ah, there you go. Am I one of those people? Hmmm, isn’t that interesting?” he interjected, at which point Couric said, “Oh, stop, stop, stop.”

“No, don’t stop. I heard what you just said. ‘Am I one of those people?’ No, I’m not,” Washington replied.

“No, are you an actor who would rather not –” Couric said, trying to rephrase her question again, but she was interrupted for a second time.

“No, I’m not that either. I’m a human being. My job is acting,” Washington said.

While appearing on the podcast, Couric opened up about how “uncomfortable” the interview made her feel.

“I think he totally misconstrued a question I asked and kind of jumped all over me,” she explained. “It was so uncomfortable because he was doing it with Meryl Streep…”

Couric remembered thinking at the time, “I don’t think I said anything wrong… I don’t know what happened.”

“I think he must have been having a really bad day because he later wrote a really big check to my colon cancer organization, which I thought was super sweet,” she added. “I love him, I admire him so much. He’s one of my favorite actors, but I remember walking out and feeling really kind of shaken that he had kind of gone after me in a way that was completely, weirdly uncalled for.”

I don’t know about you, but I love that Denzel did this.

These reports should start feeling “shaken” and scared to ask dumb questions.

20+ Times Memers Had A Problem With The Names Of Things

English is a weird thing to speak. Different accents, dialects and influences from several other different languages make it way more complicated than it needs to be, although that doesn’t mean it has no entertainment value.

The ‘Mfs Really Named This’ meme points out the ludicrousness of words, and how we often seem to name things in the stupidest way possible. Whether they’re mentioning a U.S. state or a mathematical concept, the setup is extremely dumb; at the same time, it’s hard to argue with the logic. They might not make you start calling an underground room the Based Ment, but you’ve still got to admit that this meme is pretty good at pointing out how there are some funny sounding words out there.

Queen Just Fired a “Warning Shot” At Meghan And Harry and They’re Now “Rattled”

Queen Elizabeth has reportedly ditched her famous “never complain, never explain” mantra in the wake of a series of claims being made by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

It’s so serious, apparently, that Royal experts are now warning Harry to stop speaking out against the Royal Family.

When asked if Harry was nervous over his 95-year-old Grandmother’s “warning shot,” royal expert Charlotte Griffiths said, “How can he not be? When the Queen lays down the law you’ve got to be a bit rattled.”

When asked about how Royal life works, Griffiths said that Harry knows all the ins and outs. “Meghan maybe didn’t and he should have explained it to her.” Griffiths continued, according to The Express. “He’s been here for many years…he knows how the game works better than anyone.”

“It’s been a couple of years now and they still don’t seem to get but they just don’t, they’re just so American about everything,” she added. “It’s a different ball game, they’re going to have to learn.”

Royal expert Robert Jobson said that now, after everything Harry and Meghan have said, that the Queen is game to speak out to fight any inaccurate claims that are made about her.

“The situation is born out of the Meghan and Harry situation with all those statements that were made,” Jobson said. “Many of them turned out not to be true where the Archbishop of Canterbury having to correct some of the statements made on that Oprah interview.”

“I think because they’re on the outside and they’ve got their lawyers and spokespeople, the palace really has to come out,” he added. “If they are saying things that are wrong and getting things wrong and misrepresenting the Queen, they want to make sure that isn’t the case.”

This comes after controversy over whether Harry and Meghan asked the Queen for permission to name their daughter Lilibet after her. While they claim that they did indeed ask, the Queen has fired back by saying that they did not.

“Palace source tells BBC that the Queen was not asked by Meghan and Harry over the use of her childhood nickname; reports suggested Harry had sought permission from Queen to call the newborn ‘Lilibet’; but Palace source says the Queen was ‘never asked,’” tweeted BBC royal correspondent Jonny Dymond.

Coca-Cola Diversity Policy Risks Violating Anti-Discrimination Laws, Shareholders Warn

A group of Coca-Cola shareholders are warning that the company’s recent diversity policy would actually require contracted law firms to violate anti-discrimination laws. In a letter dated June 11, the American Civil Rights Project (ACRP) noted that on Jan. 28, the general counsel of Coca-Cola demanded law firms seeking to keep the company as a client must commit that at least 30 percent of billed time would be from “diverse attorneys,” and at least half of that time would be from black attorneys. The ACRP, speaking on behalf of “a set of concerned Coca-Cola Company shareholders,” demanded that the soft drink company either “publicly retract the discriminatory outside-counsel policies” or otherwise “provide access to the corporate records related to the decision of Coca-Cola’s officers and directors to adopt and retain those illegal policies.” Coca-Cola’s race-specific contracting policy, according to the ACRP, has exposed the corporation and its shareholders to “material risk …

15 Times People Roasted Themselves With Self-Deprecating Precision

We’re all a bit hard on ourselves sometimes, but some have a gift for totally roasting themselves with spicy deep cuts. But hey, at least these poets of self-deprecation are good at something. We’ve got a bunch of hilariously sad instances of people cleverly owning themselves in the comments. These self-hating internet comedians deserve a little respect.

Chaotic Posts From The Alternate Universe Of UK Facebook

There aren’t many countries whose ego outmatches their size, yet somehow the United Kingdom manages it. It may no longer rule the waves (or much else for that matter), but its idiosyncratic society remains one of the most recognizable in the world.

Nowhere is this more apparent than on social media. The internet is regularly blessed with the delights of Scottish Twitter, and it’s not hard to find memes at the expense of the Bri’ish people. However, it is Facebook that truly uncovers the inanity and insanity of Great British culture. No Context UK Facebook collects the nation’s wackiest posts on the site. All in all, it paints a picture of a very strange country.

One of Obama’s Top Advisors Arrested For Stealing a Boat Load of Money From Needy Kids

Seth Andrew, a former top White House advisor to Barack Obama, was arrested recently on charges related to him allegedly stealing $218,005 from a charter school network he founded.

TIRED OF THE ADS? BECOME A PREMIUM USER TODAY!!

U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York stated that Andrew has been charged with wire fraud, money laundering, and giving false statements to a financial institution, according to CNBC. Andrew, who is due to appear in court later today, helped create Democracy Prep Public Schools, which operated schools in Harlem in New York City, and in Camden, New Jersey.

“As alleged, Seth Andrew abused his position as a founder of a charter school network to steal from the very same schools he helped create,” U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said in a statement. “Andrew is not only alleged to have stolen the schools’ money but also to have used the stolen funds to obtain a savings on a mortgage for a multimillion-dollar Manhattan apartment.”

The New York Post reported that Andrew previously worked as an advisor in the Obama White House in the Office of Educational Technology after taking a job at the start of Obama’s second term in 2013. He is married to CBS News anchor Lana Zak, who has not been charged in this case.

Prosecutors claim that in 2019, over two years after he severed ties with Democracy Prep, Andrew looted a series of escrow accounts he had previously set up for individual schools within the network of schools that encapsulate Democracy Prep. He then allegedly used the money to open a business account in the name of one of the schools at a bank.

Prosecutors released a surveillance photo from the bank that they say shows Andrew closing one of the schools’ escrow account there in October 2019. He can be seen in the image wearing a yellow hat, which an FBI agent noted in the complaint “is essentially Andrew’s ‘calling card,’” as it signifies a connection to Democracy Prep “and his leadership of it.”

At the time of his arrest, Andrew was working as a CEO of Democracy Builders, which bills itself as a “social sector studio that has launched more than $1b in enterprises that are changing the face of education, democracy, and technology around the world.

Really odd that the mainstream media isn’t reporting on this, right?

Give me a break…

If he was a Trump advisor it’d be all over the news 24/7 for a week or two, but because it’s Obama, all we hear are crickets.

[VIDEO] This Happens In Chicago, While Mayor Lightfoot Declares “Racism” a Public Health Crisis

Democrats love to float around fancy words and phrases.

They don’t care about facts or reality…as long as the words fit their narrative.

MORE NEWS: [VIDEO] Dems Jan. 6th Plot Hit a Big Snag So They Sent Out Mad Max to Push This New Whopper Lie

And right now the left is feverishly pushing “racism,” like it’s a fire sale or something.

There’s a reason for that – they need to keep the county completely and totally divided if they have any hope of keeping their voters politically engaged.

Right now, the Dems have this sleepy, Alzheimer’s patient pretending to run the country, and his sidekick has the likeability of Hillary Clinton, so they need to whip up a lot of extra “angst” in order to keep the political fires burning.

>>FOLLOW US ON GAB<<<

And that’s why radicals like Chicago’s Mayor Lightfoot are stoking the fires of “division” in her city by declaring “racism” a public health crisis.

Meanwhile, her gun-controlled city is a bloodbath, and she’s pretending “white supremacy” is the problem.

It’s insanity. 

And while Lori is “celebrating” all the diversity in her city, by tweeting about the “Puerto Rican People’s Day Parade…”

Radical communists like Lori Lightfoot and Bill de Blasio love to use “racism” and “white supremacy” to distract from their own failures.

It’s so much better for them to have everyone hatting white people than actually looking at what’s really destroying their cities: failed politicians who are more worried about power and money than properly and respectfully serving the people of their cities.
