Chance the Rapper chugs milk and fails to make it through 'Hot Ones'
Grammy-winning artist Chance the Rapper took the Hot Ones challenge this week, munching on an array of increasingly spicy hot wings while fielding questions from host Sean Evans.  The two talked Chance's Netflix competition series Rhythm + Flow, baseball, and being a fan of your own work. The rapper had a hard time coping with the spice, visibly struggling only about halfway through when he almost drained his glass of milk and then took Evans' without a second thought. "I'm a real fuckin' man, but that shit is insane," he said to Evans. "Gimme your milk."  After draining the milk, Chance moved on the ice cream he had brought in himself, which appeared to do little to stop the sweating. And that was before the show's most notorious sauce, Da Bomb. Read more...More about Chance The Rapper, Hot Ones, Da Bomb, Culture, and Celebrities

Hill says John Bolton warned officials that Rudy Giuliani was a "hand grenade"
National Security Council expert Fiona Hill testified on Thursday that former National Security Advisor John Bolton warned top officials, including herself, that President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani would cause trouble for the administration. Hill said Bolton described Giuliani as a "hand grenade that was going to blow everyone up." At the time of this conversation, Hill said, Giuliani was regularly appearing on TV. "(Giuliani) was clearly pushing forward issues and ideas that would probably come back to haunt us," Hill said. "In fact I think that's where we are today."

The Guardian view on George Eliot: a novelist for now | Editorial
It is 200 years since the birth of George Eliot, and her artistic virtues – humanity, honesty, seriousness – are more necessary than everVirginia Woolf famously called Middlemarch “one of the few novels written for grown-up people”. George Eliot, its author (Mary Ann Evans until she chose her pen name), was born in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, 200 years ago, on 22 November 1819. For her, the work of the writer – of everyone – was to understand individuals despite their flaws. And not in isolation, but as part of a web of intertwined lives that together form society itself.Middlemarch, perhaps her masterpiece, has two central characters who make particular claims on the reader, the idealistic Dorothea Brooke and the talented doctor Tertius Lydgate. The novel’s grown-upness lies partly in the way that Eliot calmly offers the reader not fairytale endings but marriages beset by compromise and dissatisfaction, by talents left unfulfilled. This serious realism swerves earnestness through a skilled deployment of sly wit. Eliot’s first description of Dorothea – pious, verging on priggish, but brimming with an unacknowledged sexuality – is simply perfect. “Riding was an indulgence which she allowed herself in spite of conscientious qualms; she felt that she enjoyed it in a pagan sensuous way, and always looked forward to renouncing it.” Continue reading...

Prince Andrew’s behaviour has put the very future of the monarchy in doubt | Gaby Hinsliff
The Queen has been a point of stability in a precarious world, but the prince’s misjudgments over Jeffrey Epstein have refocused scrutiny on the institution that produced himThe institution of the monarchy, said Boris Johnson, is beyond reproach. It was such an odd response to the scandal engulfing Prince Andrew – so stiff, so forelock-tugging, so initially lacking in sympathy towards the teenage girls abused by the prince’s late friend Jeffrey Epstein – that it stuck in the mind long after the televised leaders’ debate ended. Perhaps, I thought, he was simply afraid of offending the Queen any further after dragging her into a shabby, unlawful prorogation of parliament.Yet now one wonders if Johnson had an inkling of what was coming, when he chose to defend not Prince Andrew personally but the institution from which the prince has essentially resigned. For it is the institution itself that is now in danger. Continue reading...

Why Isn’t a Rape Allegation Worth an Impeachment Inquiry?
To watch the public impeachment hearings of Donald Trump is to experience a very particular form of whiplash. The House inquiry has featured a series of small collisions, between Democrats and Republicans, yes, but also between accountability and its opposite. Here is a proceeding partly led by lawmakers who have, when it comes to the president, repeatedly prioritized fealty over facts. And here is the key question at hand—did Donald Trump extort a U.S. ally for his own political gain?—chafing against all the other questionable matters not being addressed in the hearing: the reported frauds, the well-documented lies, the atmospheric fact of Trump’s bigotries. The procedural precision guiding the House inquiry—bribery, high crimes and misdemeanors—is constitutionally mandated; it is a proportional response. Watching it play out, however, is a little like watching Hannibal Lecter getting tried for tax evasion.Here is another matter left largely unaccounted for in the proceedings: Donald Trump, currently accused of bribery, has also been accused of rape. He has been accused of other forms of sexual misconduct as well, by more than 20 women, their allegations ranging from kissing to groping and grabbing, all against their will. If you include allegations of nonphysical forms of sexual harassment, the number of accusers grows even larger. The president has, in reply to these claims, issued a blanket denial: Each person making an accusation against him, he has said, is lying. (That list includes, ostensibly, Donald Trump himself, who has made his own claims about assaulting women: “It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait … Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.”)[Read: The real meaning of Trump’s ‘she’s not my type’ defense]It is easy, in the impeachment hearings’ tumult—the staid testimonies of career diplomats, the history made in real time—to ignore those accusations. They are not, after all, a direct element of the inquiry. They are not the alleged crimes that the House of Representatives has determined to be impeachable. A constellation of reasons, constitutional and political and cultural, explains why the impeachment inquiry is unfolding as it is—at this moment, rooted in this one particular incident of alleged abuse of power. It is nonetheless a sobering thing, to watch the hearings for the one alleged crime play out while the other alleged crimes are, effectively, ignored.One function of presidential impeachment hearings, my colleague Yoni Appelbaum wrote in a rich and prescient essay earlier this year, is their ability to convene public attention. Americans are constitutionally distractible; the Constitution, it turns out, offers a way to mitigate that. Impeachment, on top of everything else, is a way of cutting through the noise of rumors and conspiracy theories, putting the truths of a president’s actions to the test and determining what, in presidential leadership, ultimately matters. There is a flip side to that power, though. When the question at hand is whether Trump engaged in an abuse of power with Ukraine, his alleged abuse of power with women becomes less relevant. All the other facts of unfitness—the families seeking refuge, torn apart at the American border; Trump’s insistence that the tragedies of Charlottesville, Virginia, featured “very fine people on both sides”; the bigotry; the cruelty; the offenses both casual and sweeping—get consigned to the background.That is by design. Impeachment is a process of specificity. But the effect it has on the assault allegations in particular is to tidily replicate what has already happened in the American political environment more broadly: They have hovered over Donald Trump without meaningfully affecting the political fortunes of Donald Trump. The sitting president has been insulated by a party that often seems to care more about tribal loyalty than anything else. He has been protected not only by limitations, but also by a culture that still insists that victims of sexual violence bear blame for the crime done to them—by an attitude that insists, still, that boys will be boys and that, as a corollary, Trump will be Trump, and that it is useless to question the inevitable.[Read: The cruel paradox at the heart of E. Jean Carroll’s allegation against Trump]This summer, Jeffrey Goldberg, The Atlantic’s editor in chief, interviewed Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey and a onetime Trump adviser. Goldberg asked Christie about Carroll’s allegation of rape, as one more instance of a woman making an accusation of sexual misconduct against Trump; he asked whether, as a politician, Christie would call for an investigation of the claims. “No,” Christie replied. “Because as a practical matter, the statute of limitations on all of them is gone.” Isn’t the allegation also, Goldberg followed up, a moral matter? Yes, Christie allowed; that doesn’t mean, he continued, that the matter can be satisfactorily adjudicated. “What’s this comprehensive investigation?” Christie asked. “Who’s doing it?” Later, he added something else: When it came to Carroll’s allegation, he said, “I don’t believe we’re ever going to know the truth.”Christie is a former prosecutor. His point was that the law is narrow, by design—that it is better, in matters of justice, to live in uncertainty than to live in error. But his resignation about Carroll’s claim was making another point as well: The government, thus far, has not meaningfully investigated the assault allegations against Trump. Instead, a sense of apathy has set in. The allegations have been metabolized as a collection of known unknowns, lingering in the American ether. Carroll recently filed a civil suit against Trump—she is suing him for defamation, claiming that he lied about her when he denied her assertion—and that claim, too, was making a point: She said he raped her. The best chance she had to get her allegation heard was to say he had wounded her reputation.[Read: Why the assault allegations against Trump don’t stick]It is a familiar compromise. American public life is teeming with stories of women who were heard but not listened to. Justice can be so hard to find that even the illusion of it can seem like progress. When Christine Blasey Ford made her allegation against Brett Kavanaugh, she was met, in part, with a show trial. The FBI promised an investigation into her claims and others’ that barely materialized—nullified, apparently, by the rushed Senate vote that installed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by a margin of two. But: The Senate Judiciary Committee also conducted hearings, and aired them to the public. It gave Ford the barest measure of respect. For all their perversities, the hearings’ existence alone sent a message: The world is no longer a place in which a claim like Ford’s could be tolerably ignored.Except, the latest hearings suggest: It is. Still. In spite of it all. The institutional silence that has greeted the assault allegations against Trump has its own cold eloquence. The inquiry, in what it reveals, takes the measure of Donald Trump; in what it ignores, it also takes the measure of the rest of us.Yesterday, Gordon Sondland, the American ambassador to the European Union, gave his much-anticipated testimony to the House Intelligence Committee. “Everyone was in the loop,” Sondland said in his opening statement, regarding Trump’s alleged attempt at state-sanctioned extortion. The claim was widely characterized as a “bombshell” and a “blockbuster”—a moment of plot-twisting, potentially game-changing drama. “Everybody knew.” That fact alone was damning.Donald Trump has been credibly accused of rape. Many, many women have come forward to say that he harassed and assaulted them. Those allegations are another thing that everybody knows. And yet.

What A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood Understands About Mister Rogers
The public’s reverence for the children’s entertainer Fred Rogers has only increased since the release of the documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor? last year, and yet the many tributes to his saintliness leave something out. That’s not to argue that Mister Rogers had some hidden dark side—he was simply human like the rest of us, fallible, subject to mood swings. He didn’t magically exude decency; he worked at being decent. Marielle Heller’s new film, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, foregrounds that effort. Though it’s not a straightforward portrait of Rogers (played by Tom Hanks), casting him as a supporting character in another man’s story, the film is firmly focused on the TV host’s tangible kindness rather than his celebrity.Three films into her directorial career, Heller is displaying a skill for unconventional biopics. The Diary of a Teenage Girl (2015) incorporated animation into a vibrant live-action rendering of the artist Phoebe Gloeckner’s semiautobiographical graphic novel of sex and adolescence. Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) was a darkly sympathetic portrayal of the author Lee Israel and her unconventional life of crime. Now A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood approaches a legendary cultural figure from an unlikely angle, adapting a 1998 Esquire article by Tom Junod that recounted how the author’s initial skepticism of Rogers developed into a close friendship. The film finds Rogers near the end of his life, considering his legacy in an entertainment world that largely dismayed him, which might be perfectly suitable material for a movie about the man. Instead, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood shows Rogers as a counselor and friend whose angelic aura is generated by his actual behavior.Junod is given a new name, Lloyd Vogel, and a slightly grimmer backstory, but the broad strokes of his article are here. Vogel (Matthew Rhys), a jaded, sharp-elbowed journalist with a penchant for irritating his bosses, is assigned a profile of Rogers for Esquire’s “heroes” issue. He comes into Rogers’s cheerful Pittsburgh PBS studio looking for flaws he can use to build his feel-good story into something major. But the children’s entertainer takes an immediate interest in Vogel, who has never forgiven his philandering father, Jerry (Chris Cooper), for neglecting him as a child. What should be a simple assignment for Vogel becomes a gauntlet of character building, as Rogers strives to help the journalist with his inner pain.[Tom Junod: My friend Mister Rogers has never been more revered—or more misunderstood]It is no spoiler to reveal that Rogers does not, in fact, havescandals buried under his floorboards. The genius of casting Hanks, a generational everyman for Hollywood whose rare cheerful reputation in the business matches that of Rogers himself, is that he brings real movie-star energy to the role. Rhys, who does wonderfully nervy, raw work as Vogel, communicates a sort of involuntary awe when he actually meets the man he’s profiling—the last thing a hard-nosed reporter would want to project.Hanks doesn’t just convey the otherworldly charm of a celebrity, though. He also portrays Rogers as a person: sometimes cloying, folksy to the point of satire (he travels around with the animal puppets he uses on set), and yet deeply insightful. Rogers gazes at Vogel with laser-focused empathy, gently demanding that he open up. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is framed as a surreal faux episode of Rogers’s show, in which the host promises to teach the audience about anger by talking about Vogel. This re-creation of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood is sweet and a little strange, which is exactly the mix of moods Heller tries to summon anytime Rogers is on-screen.Heller’s deft touch is what makes the movie succeed. The script, by Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster, is lovely but modest—a tale of Vogel’s personal redemption and self-improvement that could easily come off with the sappiness of a Hallmark special. But Heller has never been afraid to emphasize the melancholy that can underlie a joyful moment, and Vogel is an ideal hero for her to take on: He has a comfortable life with a newborn child and a supportive wife, Andrea (Susan Kelechi Watson), but can’t stop picking at the grimmer details of the world. Heller demonstrates that Rogers is teaching Vogel not how to be happy, but how to understand sadness—a message about embracing emotion that was crucial to the show. That nuance makes A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood a much more rewarding watch than it could have been. It’s a sincere, measured, and clever homage to its subject, a work of storytelling that would have made Mister Rogers proud.
