President Donald Trump has promised so many things of his controversial southern border wall.
On the 2016 presidential election campaign trail, Trump vowed that his proposed U.S.-Mexico barrier would be “big, “powerful,” “impenetrable,” “physical” and “beautiful.”
With the due date for contractors to submit prototypes falling Friday, “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert talked to construction experts to find out just what it would take to build the barrier ― if all Trump’s promises were to be met.
Find out how much Colbert estimates the wall would cost and how long it would take to build in the segment above.
Conan O’Brien says he’s got the scoop on how members of President Donald Trump’s administration, his family and his political allies make their money.
In a clip posted online Friday, the late night show host lightheartedly suggested the various ways in which celebrities and key figures in Team Trump ― such as his son Eric Trump, wife Ivanka Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan and White House press secretary Sean Spicer ― earn their dollars.
Here’s what O’Brien thinks makes up the income of Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon, the former chairman of far-right website Breitbart News.
Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt may want to listen to what Stephen Colbert has to say.
On Thursday, Pruitt controversially claimed that carbon dioxide emissions were not principally to blame for global warming ― a theory which goes against the thinking of pretty much all of the scientific community.
So on Friday night’s broadcast of the “Late Show,” Colbert suggested that Pruitt do just one thing — and that was to check his own agency’s website.
Because there, clear to see, it states the exact opposite of what Pruitt believes.
“You really shouldn’t contradict your own website,” said Colbert. “That’s like BuzzFeed saying they don’t believe a quiz can tell you if you’re a Lumière or a Cogsworth.” Colbert then suggested what really could be behind global warming, and it involved Pruitt himself.
The Conners are back and their couch is still hideous.
On Friday, John Goodman and Sara Gilbert reunited as father-daughter duo Dan and Darlene Conner nearly 20 years after the series finale of “Roseanne.”
n a skit for Gilbert’s show, “The Talk,” she breaks it to dear old dad that she’s been making a living as a talk show host, to which Goodman responds:
“Well, as long as you’re happy, me and your mom will support you. You know, for a minute there, I thought you were going to tell me you were gay.”
Gilbert, of course, publicly came out as a lesbian in 2010.
“The Vampire Diaries” showrunner Julie Plec told The Huffington Post that she and co-creator Kevin Williamson wanted the series finale to be both open-ended and set in stone, and after watching the episode unfurl, they accomplished just that.
The finale, titled “I Was Feeling Epic,” was a heartbreaker, as former characters came back to say their final farewells, including Elena (Nina Dobrev), who was finally able to reunite with her one true love, Damon (Ian Somerhalder), after Bonnie figured out how to reverse the curse linking her life to Elena’s.
But the biggest, most devastating blow came when it was revealed that Stefan (Paul Wesley) made the ultimate sacrifice in order for his brother to have that epic reunion with Elena. He gave up a life with his new wife Caroline (Candice King) to give Damon, Elena, and his loved ones happiness.
“We’ve had people die and come back to life, but there’s no coming back [now],” Wesley told HuffPost ahead of the finale. “This is the final episode, so whoever dies here is dead. I think that’s the difference.”
