Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check - Sep 28, 2016
September 28, 2016
Broadway star LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA of "Hamilton" fame will be hosting the Oct 08 edition of"Saturday Night Live" along with musical guest TWENTY ONE PILOTS. The group has not one, but two hits currently in the Billboardmagazine Hot 100 --"Ride," from their multi-platinum studio album "Blurryface," and "Heathens," from "Suicide Squad: The Album."
Political Racket /Dirty Tricks:
Former DNC boss HOWARD DEAN doubled down yesterday on his insinuation that DONALD TRUMP's debate-night sniffles were related to cocaine use. Appearing on MSNBC, he said, "That is actually a signature of people who use cocaine."
Dean added, "I'm not suggesting that Trump does, but I'm suggesting we think about it, because here's the interesting constellation --he sniffs during the presentation, which is something that users do. He also has grandiosity, which is something that accompanies that problem.... It's something I think it'd be interesting to ask him and see if he ever had a problem with that." (Pacelli)
Former New York City Mayor RUDY GIULIANI --a DONALD TRUMP surrogate-- says HILLARY CLINTON is too stupid to be the president because she stayed with her husband, former President BILL CLINTON. Politico reports that after the Monday debate, Giuliani said, "The president of the United States, her husband, disgraced this country with what he did in the Oval Office, and she didn't just stand by him, she attacked MONICA LEWINSKY.
"And after being married to Bill Clinton for 20 years, if you didn't know the moment Monica Lewinsky said that Bill Clinton violated her that she was telling the truth, then you're too stupid to be president." (Pacelli)
Sucking the life out of the wire services:
We have more proof that being the class clown can really pay off. Forbesmagazine just named KEVIN HART the highest-paid comedian from June of 2015-June of 2016 after he raked in a whopping $87.5-million-dollars thanks to roles in "Central Intelligence," "The Secret Life of Pets," "Ride Along 2" and his popular "What Now?" tour. JERRY SEINFELD is sitting pretty with a cool $43.5-million to take second place, third went to TERRY FATOR. AMY SCHUMER is the only female to ever make the cut with $17-million to take spot number four and the JEFF DUNHAM rounds out the top five with $13-million. (Lee)
An elementary school in Portland, Oregon, has a new afterschool program: Satanic Bible Study.
The local Satanic Temple has been given approval to start the program October 19th at Sacramento Elementary School. Satanic leader FINN REZZ says the study focuses on "science and rational thinking" and promotes "benevolence and empathy for everybody." The Satanic Temple has been targeting schools that already have a "Good News Club" in place, which is run by a Christian group known as the Child Evangelism Fellowship. (Still)
