Stephen Colbert Isn’t Buying Joe Biden’s Weird Injury Excuse
CBSOn Friday night, The Late Show host Stephen Colbert tried his hand at mocking Joe Biden, focusing on the “recent boo-boo” (a fractured ankle) that the 78-year-old president-elect allegedly suffered while playing with his two-year-old dog, Major.During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Biden tried to explain how it all went down. “What happened was, I got out of the shower. I got a dog—and anybody who’s been around my house knows—little pup dropped a ball in front of me, for me to grab the ball, and I’m walking through this little alleyway to get to the bedroom, and I grabbed the ball like this, and he ran, and I was joking running after him to grab his tail, and what happened was that he slid on a throw rug and I tripped on the rug he slid on. That’s what happened,” Biden maintained. That led Colbert to crack: “This story has everything: intrigue, suspense, an old man washing himself. There’s a lot to unpack in this story. That’s why tonight I’m introducing a new segment: ‘The Late Show’s Joe Biden Broken Foot Breakdown.’” Then, the comedian tried to unpack Biden’s strange explanation bit by bit—first addressing the whole “got out of the shower” portion. “So, Biden’s nude, wet, and vulnerable…” joked Colbert, before asking, “Sir, why does anyone who’s been to your house know that your dog waits for you at the shower door?”Read more at The Daily Beast.

Joe Biden Reveals Why He Questioned the Osama bin Laden Raid
Tim Sloan/AFP/GettyThe raid to take out 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden will forever remain a subject of fascination—owed in part to former President Barack Obama’s refusal to release any footage of the mission or photos of the al Qaeda terrorist’s body, and on a more comical level, the fact that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson somehow knew about it before any other U.S. civilian.“It’s important for us to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence or as a propaganda tool,” Obama explained to 60 Minutes. “That’s not who we are. We don’t trot out this stuff as trophies.’’Here’s what we do know: On May 2, 2011, a covert mission—code-named Operation Neptune Spear—saw SEAL Team Six, the CIA, and “Night Stalker” helicopters work in conjunction to assassinate the al Qaeda founder at his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Then Vice President Joe Biden’s role in the raid, however, has repeatedly come under question, with Trump accusing Biden of opposing the mission during the 2020 U.S. presidential election, and Biden himself offering differing takes as to whether he told President Obama to go after OBL or not. In Obama’s new memoir A Promised Land, the ex-president writes that Biden “weighed in against the raid.” In a new documentary, however, Biden offers a slightly different interpretation.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Brace for an Even Nastier GOP Assault on Voting Rights
Luke Sharrett/GettyPresident Trump shows few signs of backing off his bid to reverse the election results, but he’s increasingly isolated—even within the White House.Still, the president’s weeks-long barrage of false voter fraud claims has done grave long-term damage to the health of our democracy. Less noticed, it also has helped his party lay the groundwork for a much more concrete political goal—a major new assault on voting rights likely to start in earnest next year.Lately, the media has lavished praise on the handful of GOP officials who actually did their jobs—it’s a low bar these days—rather than subvert democracy at Trump’s bidding. But in reality, Republicans are largely united behind the lie at the core of Trump’s effort: that the election revealed a voting system dangerously vulnerable to fraud, underscoring an urgent need for stricter rules.

It's Come to This: Newt & Cruz Are the ‘Sane’ Ones in Georgia
GettyOn Saturday, Donald Trump will travel to Georgia to try and help Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler win their Jan. 5 run-off elections. The real question is which Donald Trump will show up to the rally. Will it be the one who wants to help Republicans (and boost his legacy) or the one who wants to prove that the election was stolen from him (with help from Republicans). Maybe both?Everyone’s nervous. Control of the Senate hangs in the balance. And unless Trump delivers disciplined remarks and a full-throated endorsement (don’t hold your breath), the civil war between Trump supporters who want to hold the Senate and MAGA cult members who want to hold a coup will likely accelerate. The Fight Club features traditional Trump enablers like Ted Cruz, Dan Crenshaw, and Newt Gingrich on the “hold the Senate” side, versus newly-minted MAGA celebs like Lin Wood and Sidney Powell on the side of burning down the house.Wood and Powell, both MAGA true believers, are saying that Georgia Republicans, including Perdue and Loeffler, “have not earned your vote” because they have not done enough to help Trump. They argue this despite the fact that Perdue and Loeffler both called on Georgia’s secretary of state to resign when he had done nothing wrong and was following the law. Read more at The Daily Beast.

COVID Cops in Europe Will Search Your Car for Evidence of Ski Gear
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyROME—Nothing says winter holidays for many Europeans like hitting the slopes, which just wouldn't be complete without the saunas, après-ski cocktails by the lodge fire and lavish dinners in cozy chalets. But this year, many European governments are calling for bans on ski tourism—especially in Italy, France and Austria—which were where the first superspreader events of the coronavirus pandemic kicked off last winter, long before anyone knew how bad this hellish pandemic would get.Ski tourism is a multi-billion dollar industry for France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria and Switzerland, employing tens of thousands of seasonal workers, and providing traditional winter fun for millions who travel to the alpine regions and feed the local economies. These regions make more than 75 percent of their annual income between December and February most years, meaning even a few weeks less will spell financial trouble down the road.The lifts that shuttle skiers to the top of the mountains are generally state-owned, meaning the governments can unilaterally decide when they will open based on a variety of factors, including snowfall, weather forecasts and COVID-19. The World Health Organization weighed in earlier this week, urging EU governments in countries with ski tourism to think “very, very carefully” whether the slopes should be open over Christmas. “We would ask that all countries look at the ski season and other reasons for mass gatherings and look very, very carefully at the associated risks,” WHO's top emergency expert Mike Ryan said at a news conference.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Trump’s Cruel Joke Was on Us, but He’s Just a Punchline Now
GettyI don’t know about you, but I feel better. For a few days now. At first, I couldn’t figure out why. I was just lighter in my step. Whistling more.Then I figured it out. I’m thinking about him less. He’s taking up far less space in my brain than he has for these past four years, years during which his stupid voice and his pasted-on hair and his orange makeup (historians will marvel that a society ever took seriously a man who pancakes that much orange stuff on his face every morning) and his laughably long ties to “hide” his laughably Brobdingnagian girth, to say nothing of his 25,000 lies and 35,000 assaults on democracy, have pressed down on my brain like some Medieval instrument of torture in the Tower of London. There were times when it honestly hurt.He almost never left. I didn’t say never. There were moments of joy with my daughter, or laughter at a really funny comedy, or tears of nostalgia as I discovered some new-old YouTube video of some rare live performance of a song I loved when I was 20. But most of the time, most waking hours of most days, I would escape into thinking about tax policy or the Battle of Stalingrad or the chords to “Starman,” and then, every 40 seconds or so…Trump, Trump Trump, Trump.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Steven Soderbergh: The Reports of Cinema’s Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated
Franco Origlia/GettySteven Soderbergh remains American cinema’s most exciting pioneer. From his groundbreaking indie debut sex, lies, and videotape, to his Oscar-winning Traffic and Erin Brockovich, to his blockbuster Ocean’s 11 trilogy, to his more unconventional efforts like Kafka, Bubble, The Girlfriend Experience and Unsane—not to mention his forays into TV with Cinemax’s stellar The Knick, and his inventive branching-narrative project Mosaic—the 57-year-old auteur never rests on his laurels, finding new and unexpected ways to push himself and the medium, all while maintaining his signature, electrifying flair and incisiveness.On the heels of last year’s one-two Netflix punch of High Flying Bird and The Laundromat, Soderbergh returns to the streaming world this week (Dec. 10) with Let Them All Talk, a jazzy, semi-improvised drama for HBO Max—with whom he’s signed a wide-ranging production deal—that stars Meryl Streep as a celebrated author who attempts to reconnect with her two college friends (Candice Bergen, Dianne Wiest) by taking them on a New York-to-London cruise aboard the Queen Mary 2 to attend an awards gala. Also featuring Lucas Hedges and Gemma Chan, it’s a simultaneously breezy and profound (as well as intriguingly ambiguous) story about communication, art, and betrayal, and it proves another triumph for the director.With Warner Bros. recently announcing that its entire 2021 movie slate will premiere on HBO Max, Let Them All Talk arrives at a moment of potentially historic industry change, and that was one of the many topics we discussed with Soderbergh during our wide-ranging chat ahead of his latest’s debut—a conversation that also touched on everything from filming on a cruise ship pre-pandemic, to collaborating with Streep, to re-editing some of his earliest gems.Read more at The Daily Beast.
