Stephen Colbert rips into Jared Kushner's attempt to spin 1 million coronavirus cases as 'a great story'

The U.S. recorded its millionth case of coronavirus on Tuesday, yet the Trump administration is trying to claim that as a victory. Speaking to Fox & Friends that same day, the president’s son-in-law and waxen face of the White House’s disastrous coronavirus response Jared Kushner claimed the current numbers are actually a “great story.” Said numbers include 60,000 recorded deaths in the U.S. from the virus.

Trump has handled widespread criticism of his coronavirus response with all the patience and grace of a cranky toddler. Having ignored the many, many warnings about the looming pandemic in daily briefings, the U.S. president has since repeatedly refused to take responsibility for his inaction or reckless public statementsRead more…

Everyone can pull off thigh-high boots thanks to the sexy legs meme

A sexy pair of legs in thigh-high leather boots has gone viral on Twitter, though not only because they are incredibly sexy. Users are exploiting the way Twitter displays uploaded images to match the enviable pins with unlikely pop culture icons, creating a confusingly attractive meme.
