Bill O'Reilly got fired from Fox News on Wednesday, leading to an extended celebration on the Internet. The news also came out in time for Stephen Colbert, O'Reilly's long time rival, to put together a proper send-off.
On The Late Show Wednesday night, Colbert admitted to the studio audience that it would be inappropriate to gloat over O'Reilly losing his job—so he had the cameras turn away so he could presumably do a touchdown dance or something. Whatever it was, the audience went wild. But for us viewers at home, Colbert planned a very special treat. He brought back 'Stephen Colbert,' the character that shares his name from The Colbert Report.
'Stephen Colbert' was a conservative blowhard who Colbert says was largely based on O'Reilly. Since The Colbert Report ended, he has apparently been living in a cabin with Jon Stewart, and he warmly invited O'Reilly to join him. The whole thing starts at about minute 4, after Colbert gets a few other knocks in:
There are, of course, still plenty of people not celebrating and who seem to think that Bill O'Reilly's troubles are all part of some wacky leftist conspiracy, rather than his own actions:
Are you kidding me? Bill O'Reilley really? These women ruined his career, life, marriage, and for what? All of them need mental health help!— Joni Lewis (@JoniLewis55) April 20, 2017
Yes, much easier to believe many women are crazy than one man is a serial sexual harasser. Plus, as Colbert points out, O'Reilly will probably be fine. Donald Trump is President of the United States, after all! And he loves his job, getting to host the Patriots at the White House and all. Colbert even shared a picture of the event:
Actually, that's Obama hosting Super Bowl winners in the top image, Trump on the bottom. At least the turnout for Trump is consistent.
There are plenty of instances where the United States Justice system screws up royally and totally innocent people end up getting shafted in ways that would give any depressing Oscar-contending film a run for its money. And in moments like that it's easy to shake your head and everyone involved in doling out justice in this country.
From the court system and its corrupt judges, to some cops who abuse children and are generally unfit as agents of "peace keeping," getting down on the way we're policing our citizens isn't difficult.
But make no mistake - there are tons of absolute morons who break the law every single day, and after hearing these stories from probation officers about some of the strangest and straight-up clueless offenders they've ever dealt with, you might start sympathizing with Johnny Law a bit more.
All right, maybe you won't go that far, but you know what I mean.
When I think of vending machines I think of frustration. Of late hours at some government building waiting to get some bureaucratic nonsense taken care of. Or stressful times at a hospital. Unhealthy snacks and feeling gross immediately after I cave into my desire for junk food.
But it doesn't have to be that way. There are plenty of awesome vending machines out there that go above and beyond the stale chips and crusty, white-dust-coated candy bar stereotype.
These are the vending machines of the future, and the future's looking pretty darn good.
Dads. They’re notorious for their senses of humor—whether cheesy or savage, witty or groan-worthy, they never miss an opportunity to try and make us laugh. In fact, dads are such natural comedians they often crack us up without even meaning to. It should come as no surprise then, that when dads learn to text, hilarity ensues.
Here are 21 dads who prove that, in their hands, smartphones are truly a blessing:
