“Farting up a storm”: “The View” airs out rumors that Trump is letting it rip in court

“Farting up a storm”: “The View” airs out rumors that Trump is letting it rip in court

[ad_1] In a recent segment of “The View,” cohost Sunny Hostin ripped Donald Trump for rumors that he’s been passing gas in court during his hush-money trial.  “He’s just losing it. He’s farting up a storm in the courtroom. Everyone’s writing about that,” Hostin said. “He’s probably just horrified about that. He’s sitting there falling asleep. He’s now Sleepy Don. There’s no Sleepy Joe anymore.” “They need to get him some Imodium,” Joy Behar chimed in. Cohost Sara Haines, who called Trump “crazy,” said that the image of the former president sitting peacefully in court may help his image. “But he’s sitting in a courtroom farting,” Hostin rebutted. This isn’t the first time that “The View” took up the issue of passing gas, previously installing coasters after an incident involving a fart-like sound interrupted a broadcast. “We get blamed for dropping gas, when in fact it’s a cup,” Whoopi Goldberg said in 2023, after Haines placed her cup down and made a distinctive sound. Discussing Trump’s candidacy, Hostin had harsh words for the Republican party’s …

The Art of Putting on Airs

The Art of Putting on Airs

[ad_1] The paintings in Dickie Greenleaf’s studio are bad. Hilariously bad, so much so that the set dressers on Ripley, the Netflix adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s The Talented Mr. Ripley, must have let out a real cackle when they were commissioned. Dickie, the Ivy-educated dilettante son of a New York ship-building titan who has moved to seaside Italy to fritter away his inheritance, claims, about his work, “I happen to be pretty good at it.” But he can’t see what the audience can: the droopy Modigliani knockoffs and derivative Cubist faces that would make Picasso wince. When Tom Ripley, who will soon focus his affection and envy and rage at Dickie, first looks at the paintings, he practically laughs into his sleeve. As he quickly comes to realize, it doesn’t matter that the paintings are tripe—Dickie himself is a piece of art worth copying. The Ripley canon, which includes Highsmith’s quick-twisting 1955 novel, the sun-drenched 1999 Anthony Minghella film, and the new television series from Steven Zaillian, has always been about American reinvention. Not only …

New iPads and MacBook Airs are coming this week, report claims

New iPads and MacBook Airs are coming this week, report claims

[ad_1] Apple is planning to launch numerous new products soon, but don’t expect it to happen at a dedicated launch event. According to MacRumors, which cites a source familiar with the matter, the company will launch new iPad Pro, iPad Air, and MacBook Air models, as well as several new accessories, this week. In particular, we should see two new iPad Pro models, with an M3 chip and OLED display. There will be changes on the outside too: The new iPad Pros should be thinner and have a landscape-oriented front camera (our biggest pet peeve with the last model), as well as a redesigned camera bump on the back, and – maybe – MagSafe wireless charging. Apple will also reportedly launch two new iPad Air models, with an M2 chip inside. One of these will have a 12.9-inch display, a first for the iPad Air. There will be new accessories for the iPads as well, including a new Apple Pencil, a new, redesigned Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro with a larger trackpad and a …
