SNL Gives Joe Biden Sensitivity Training: ‘Let’s Hug It Out, America!’

SNL Gives Joe Biden Sensitivity Training: ‘Let’s Hug It Out, America!’Saturday Night Live gave Donald Trump a break this week and instead put Joe Biden through the ringer. Jason Sudeikis busted back onto the show in a cold open sketch that found the former vice president undergoing sensitivity training following a week in which he was repeatedly accused of inappropriate behavior with women over the years and awkwardly tried to dismiss those allegations with a series of jokes. “You guys know that I’m a tactile politician, right?” Sudeikis’ Biden asked his campaign staffers. “I’m a hugger, I’m a kisser, and I’m a little bit of a sniffer. The last thing I ever want to do is offend anyone.” With that in mind, they brought in a consultant played by Kate McKinnon to school him on how to behave, and Biden immediately started nuzzling her head and rubbing her arms. “Yeah, so this is exactly the kind of thing I’m here to prevent.” “Wait, I think nose to nose is going to be OK,” Biden replied. “Because look, I did the 23andme thing, like Lizzie, what’s her name, Warren, right? It turns out that I’m 1-percent Eskimo, so I’m allowed to do the kissing.” When she told him he shouldn’t be hugging or kissing any women he meets, he protested. “That’s a human connection. That’s my whole thing,” he said. “That’s like telling Mario Batali to take his Crocs off.” Later, they presented some female voters so Biden could practice and when he was told one was looking for someone who could beat Donald Trump, he asked, “You mean the guy who actually bragged about assault on tape?”“Yes, but unlike his voters, your voters actually care,” his staffer replied. Ultimately, Biden admitted he didn’t really learn anything from the experience. “But the important thing, I think, is that I’m listening, I hear you, I feel you,” Biden said. “So let’s hug it out, America, what do you say? Biden and some woman in 2020, right? We can do this!” Read more at The Daily Beast.

One year after it was shot into space, let’s check in on Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster

One year after it was shot into space, let’s check in on Elon Musk’s Tesla RoadsterIt's hard to believe it's already been a year, but exactly 12 months ago today was the first launch of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy. The rocket launch was a huge success and while SpaceX hasn't launched Heavy again in the time since, it was still a very big deal for the company.Falcon Heavy, which has since been usurped by new SpaceX projects including Starship and Super Heavy, flew skyward one year ago and took Elon Musk's own Tesla Roadster along for the ride. The pricey payload, with its Starman mannequin seated behind the wheel, has been flying through space ever since.Let's check on its progress, shall we?Figuring out exactly where the Roadster and its Starman passenger are at any given point is incredibly easy thanks to the handy website whereisroadster.com, which tracks the progress of the vehicle every moment of every day.Going by the site's statistics, the Roadster is currently around 226 million miles from Earth and 163 million miles from Mars, and it got to its current position by traveling at a speed of approximately 5,149 miles per hour. That's an incredibly speedy vehicle, and it won't be slowing down any time soon.As far as total distance traveled, the car has cruised for a whopping 473.3 million miles as of this writing. It'll take approximately 557 days for the Roadster to make a full orbit around the Sun, and it's projected to continue to travel through space for a long, long time to come.As LiveScience notes, scientists believe the Roadster will eventually crash into either Earth or Venus. However, it could take many millions of years for that to happen, and the odds of it slamming into either planet in the next million years are significantly less than ten percent.It's worth noting that by the time the Roadster meets its end, it will likely look a whole lot different than it did when it initially took off. Telsa vehicles might look nice and shiny here on Earth, but the harsh conditions of space are likely to wreak havoc on the exterior as well as Starman himself.

The Constitution Lets Roger Stone Speak . . . at His Own Risk

The Constitution Lets Roger Stone Speak . . . at His Own RiskIf I were the prosecutor on Roger Stone’s case, I’d be delighted that he continues to speak out publicly. Capitol Hill has finally started to take notice of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s brass-knuckles investigative tactics: Rather than call defense counsel to arrange Stone’s surrender on charges of misleading Congress that have been expected for months, Mueller had dozens of well-armed agents swarm Stone’s home as if it were Osama bin Laden’s compound. In his latest rant, Stone deduces that “Russian collusion” is Mueller’s pretext not just to nail to him, but to impeach both President Trump and Vice President Pence, then install Speaker Nancy Pelosi and, finally, Hillary Clinton as president.

Supreme Court lets mystery company file appeal under seal

Supreme Court lets mystery company file appeal under sealThe case has remained a high-profile mystery, with the Supreme Court and lower courts declining to identify the company, the country that owns it or the purpose of the subpoena. More details about the company’s legal arguments were revealed in redacted court papers made public after the nine justices permitted it to move forward with its appeal to the high court under seal, a process that keeps many facts about the matter secret. The company is facing a daily fine of $ 50,000 imposed by a U.S. federal judge in Washington for refusing to comply with a subpoena issued in the unidentified investigation.
