In a political landscape dominated by class warfare, 2019 was the year movies ate the rich
Neon/CJ Entertainment/STX Entertainment Warning: This piece contains spoilers for "Parasite," as well as other movies for which spoilers don't matter nearly as much. Proceed with caution! Movies like "Parasite" and "Hustlers" exemplified the same visceral fury directed toward the wealthy that has also animated this year's presidential primaries. What makes this year's crop of films particularly effective is the directors themselves — neither Bong Joon-Ho nor Lorene Scafaria come from the big, money-hungry Hollywood machine. Kevin O'Keeffe is a writer, host, and "RuPaul's Drag Race" herstorian living in Los Angeles.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Warning: Spoilers ahead for "Parasite." Park Dong-ik is as posh as you can imagine. The only members of the working class the South Korean CEO regularly encounters are his driver, housekeeper, and two tutors for his kids.

PopSockets made an AirPods grip, and it is godawful
There are some objects that spit in the face of god, either in their design or their intended use, and another such product has just entered our reality. PopSocket — the makers of the now-ubiquitous, carpal tunnel-saving doohickeys that adorn the backs many smartphones — has now made a PopGrip (its term) that is an AirPods case. It looks like a tumorous growth out of the back of your phone, but hey, you probably won’t lose your AirPods again — only your dignity. Like the other PopGrips, the PopGrip AirPods Holder can be swapped out for other grips. It’s detachable, and it works with wireless charging. It comes in a variety of colors. It retails for $20, and you can buy it directly from PopGrip online. The only question to ask yourself... Continue reading…

6 times the US military totally screwed up on Twitter
US Strategic Command The military has codified the rules for managing these official accounts. But sometimes these social-media pros flub it. The screw-ups range from the Pentagon's threat to bomb millenials converging near Area 51 to a "KnowYourMil" post about military systems that got it wrong. Every day, scores of US military commands reach millions with posts aimed to inform and inspire: videos of valor, motivational photos, and, yes, puppy pics. The military has codified the rules for managing these official accounts. But sometimes these social-media pros flub it — even the four-star command responsible for the US's nuclear weapons. Here's a blooper reel of some of the military's most embarrassing and dumb social-media mistakes since 2016.#KnowYourMil Spc. Kyler Chatman/US Army The Department of Defense's official twitter account shared this stunning image of an armored vehicle firing at a training exercise with the tag, #KnowYourMil. The only problem — they named the wrong armored vehicle. That's a Stryker armored vehicle firing its 105mm gun, not a Paladin self-propelled howitzer as the DoD tweet identified it. One easy way to tell them apart is that the Paladin is a tracked vehicle like a tank, unlike the eight wheels on a Stryker. 'The last thing #Millennials will see if they attempt the #area51 raid today' U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Jordan Castelan On Sept. 20, 2019, the Pentagon's Defense Visual Information Distribution Service (DVIDS) tweeted out a warning to millennials planning to attend the "Storm Area 51" event that day, suggesting it was going to bomb them. "The last thing #Millennials will see if they attempt the #area51 raid today," the tweet read. The accompanying image was a B-2 Spirit bomber, a highly-capable stealth aircraft built to slip past enemy defenses and devastate targets with nuclear and conventional munitions. The tweet prompted some backlash online, and the next day, DVIDS deleted the offending tweet and sent out a new one explaining that "last night, a DVIDSHUB employee posted a tweet that in NO WAY supports the stance of the Department of Defense." Read more: The Department of Defense had to apologize after a tweet suggested the US military was going to bomb millennials into oblivion if they tried to raid Area 51 '#Ready to drop something much, much bigger' US Strategic Command US Strategic Command, which oversees the US's nuclear arsenal, ringed in 2019 with a reminder that they're ready, at any time, to start a nuclear war. Playing off the image of the ball dropping in New York City's Times Square, STRATCOM's official account posted a tweet that included a clip of a B-2 dropping bombs. The command apologized for the message.

How People's Vote collapsed after Roland Rudd's boardroom coup
The second referendum pressure group suffered after dismissals of two key figuresThe plan was for People’s Vote to become one of the most influential voices in the election campaign. But an extraordinary three-week long row pitting some of Labour’s best known names against a multimillionaire PR specialist has led to the total collapse of the second referendum pressure group.With over 500,000 supporters, and two successful mass marches in London behind it, the group was raising £100,000 a week in small donations and planned to run a tactical vote campaign in a hundred seats in support of Labour, the Liberal Democrats and a few former Conservatives, such as Dominic Grieve and David Gauke.

Report: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo planning to quit because Trump is making him look bad
Time Magazine reports that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, freshly embarrassed in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, is planning to quit. Trump is making him look bad. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has told three prominent Republicans in recent weeks that he plans to resign from the Trump Administration to run for the U.S. Senate from Kansas in next year’s elections. The problem: how to get out in one piece. Pompeo’s plan had been to remain at the State Department until early spring next year, the three Republicans tell TIME, but recent developments, including the House impeachment inquiry, are hurting him politically and straining his relationship with Trump. Earlier today, Ambassador Gordon Sondland's testified to the House that "everyone was in the loop" for Trump's "quid pro quo"—refusing to release aid to Ukraine unless it announced an investigation into Trump's political rivals.
