Ivanka Trump leaves Internet baffled after tweeting a ‘Chinese’ proverb


First daughter Ivanka Trump tweeted what she called a “Chinese proverb” to mark President Donald Trump’s recent historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and the Internet was quick to point out it isn’t one. 

“Those who say it can not be done, should not interrupt those doing it,” she wrote on Monday.

Many users of China’s social media site Weibo were baffled but helpful. A number of people offered suggestions for a Chinese equivalent. 

They included, “A true gentleman should keep silent while watching a chess game,” and, “If you can do it, do it; if you can’t, shut up.” 

The Washington Post did some digging into the phrase Ivanka Trump shared and found that “according to the website QuoteInvestigator.com, a version of it may have first been published in the United States more than 100 years ago.”

Bode Miller mourns daughter after pool accident


Bode Miller, former Olympic skiier, has lost his young daughter.

USA Today reports that Bode’s 19-month-old daughter, Emeline Grier Miller, died in a hospital on the evening of Sunday, June 10, 2018. The day before, the child somehow wound up in a swimming pool while her parents, Bode and Morgan, were at a party at a neighbor’s house, as noted by TMZ. Paramedics had reportedly been called and had responded to a house in California’s Coto de Caza neighborhood in an effort to resuscitate Emeline. According to TMZ, paramedics performed CPR on Emeline before transporting her to a hospital. Unfortunately, they were unable to revive her.

The incident is reportedly under investigation.

On Monday, June 11, Bode took to Instagram to share a series of photos of his late daughter. In the caption, he wrote, “We are beyond devastated. Our baby girl, Emmy, passed away yesterday. Never in a million years did we think we would experience a pain like this.”

The Olympic gold medalist continued, “Her love, her light, her spirit will never be forgotten. Our little girl loved life and lived it to [its] fullest everyday. Our family respectfully requests privacy during this painful time.”

Bode’s wife, Morgan, shared the same photos and message on her own Instagram account.

Emeline, who was named after Bode’s grandmother, was the youngest of Bode and Morgan’s four children. Bode and Morgan share 3-year-old son Nash Skan together, while Bode shares 10-year-old daughter Neesyn and 5-year-old son Samuel from a previous relationship (via People).

Bode and Morgan are currently expecting another child. They announced the news on April 1, wishing their followers a happy Easter and posting a photo that showed five Easter egg cookies with their children’s names on them. On one egg, the couple wrote, “Baby Miller coming… October 2018.”

Our thoughts are with Bode, Morgan, and their family during this difficult time.

TrevorLIVE 2018: Rita Ora, Adam Rippon and more stars step out


The 2018 TrevorLIVE New York gala brought together a slew of A-list stars to raise money for The Trevor Project on Monday night at Cipriani Wall Street.

Hosted by Olympians Adam Rippon and Gus Kenworthy, the celebratory evening helped to raise over $2 million for the organization, which is the country’s largest nonprofit crisis intervention and suicide prevention organization focused on LGBTQ youth.

The event honored “The Chi” creator Lena Waithe and “Love, Simon” director Greg Berlanti, among others, who both delivered inspiring speeches that brought the crowd to tears.

“It’s our job to make sure all queer people are human [on screen],” Waithe declared to applause. “They weren’t born to be perfect. They were born to be whole.”

The night ended with a lively medley performance by Rita Ora, who sang hits like “I Will Never Let You Down,” “Anywhere” and her latest single, “Girls,” for which the case of VICELAND’s “My House” joined her onstage. 

Others guests on Monday night included Samira Wiley and wife Lauren Morelli, Derek Blasberg, Natasha Lyonne, the cast of FX’s “Pose” and “Real Housewives of Dallas” cast member D’Andra Simmons.

Jennifer Garner’s amazing church outfit makes us rethink what our Sunday best can be!


Jennifer Garner was chic and polished in her Sunday best as she exited a church in Pacific Palisades, California, over the weekend. 

Teaming a grey knotted skirt by Jason Wu and a fitted white short-sleeve turtleneck, the 46-year-old actress looked stylish for the service. She accessorized the look with matching grey Casadei ankle-strap heels, a roomy black bag and oversized Céline sunglasses. The ensemble was both dressy and on trend, convincing us to trade in our mundane church uniform for more sleek and cool pieces like Jen’s.

“I did a lot of crazy, inverted push-ups and there were some weights involved. There was some boxing involved,” Garner told ET backstage at CinemaCon of how she prepared for the role. “It felt great to be back with a stunt team again.

Iran warns North Korea: Trump could cancel deal before getting home


LONDON (Reuters) – Iran warned North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday against trusting U.S. President Donald Trump, saying he could cancel their denuclearization agreement within hours.

Tehran cited its own experience in offering the advice to Kim a month after Washington withdrew from a similar deal with Iran.

Trump and Kim pledged at a meeting in Singapore on Tuesday to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula while Washington committed to provide security guarantees for its old enemy.

“We don’t know what type of person the North Korean leader is negotiating with. It is not clear that he would not cancel the agreement before returning home,” Iranian government spokesman Mohammad Bagher Nobakht was quoted as saying by IRNA new agency.

Nobakht questioned Trump’s credibility. “This man does not represent the American people, and they will surely distance themselves from him at the next elections,” he said.

As well as pulling the United States out of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, Trump disowned on Saturday a joint communique issued by Group of Seven leaders, just hours after he had left their summit for the meeting with Kim.

Trump has said would be open to striking a new nuclear accord with Tehran. However, he says the existing deal negotiated under his predecessor Barack Obama had failed to address Iran’s ballistic missile program.

On top of this, he also cited the terms under which international inspectors can visit suspect Iranian nuclear sites and “sunset” clauses, under which limits on the nuclear program start to expire after 10 years.

Trump has insisted any deal with North Korea should include irreversible and verifiable denuclearization.

An Iranian foreign ministry spokesman also advised North Korean leaders on Monday to “exercise complete vigilance” in their negotiations with the United States.

“We are not optimistic about these talks … The United States, especially Mr Trump, has undermined international agreements and has unilaterally withdrawn from them,” Bahram Qasemi said.

Trump has also decided to pull the United States out of the Paris climate change accord.

Washington will reimpose a wide array of Iran-related sanctions after the expiry of 90- and 180-day wind-down periods, including measures aimed at the oil sector and transactions with its central bank.

Other remaining signatories of the deal – Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia- have criticized the U.S. exit and are still trying to salvage the accord.

Rosie O’Donnell’s pregnant daughter Chelsea files for separation from Nick Alliegro


Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter, Chelsea, has filed for separation from her husband, Nick Alliegro.

According to court documents obtained by ET, the 20-year-old filed for an annulment/legal separation in Marinette County, Wisconsin, on April 19.

The couple tied the knot in 2016 and have a 12-year age gap.

Their split comes following social media posts indicating that Chelsea is pregnant with her boyfriend, Jacob Bourassa.

According to the posts, their child is due in January 2019. Bourassa shared a photo and video of an ultrasound on Facebook, writing that he “can’t wait to meet my little one.”

On Saturday, a rep for O’Donnell, 56, confirmed the baby news to ET, adding that the mother-daughter pair were making amends following a rift.

“Rosie said, yes, she’s pregnant and they reconnected,” the spokesperson said.

It appears this isn’t Chelsea’s first pregnancy, as she told The Daily Mail in 2017 that she was expecting a child with Alliegro.

The interview shed light on her strained relationship with O’Donnell, who adopted Chelsea as a baby with her ex-wife, Kelli Carpenter.

“I’ve always wanted a family and I’m looking forward to it. But Rosie will not be in my child’s life — and no, I do not feel sad about that, to be honest,” Chelsea said during the interview.

However, it seems the estranged pair are now rebuilding their relationship.

Alec Baldwin says he would win ‘hands down’ against Trump in 2020


Alec Baldwin says he’d beat Donald Trump in the 2020 election!

In an interview with Howard Stern, the actor said he could kick the reality star and mogul turned president right out of the White House, saying:

“If I ran for president, I would win. Hands down, I would win,” he said. “It would be the funniest, most exciting, craziest campaign.”

He also told Stern it’s about common sense. He said:

“I’d love to run for that kind of position to just have things be very common sense. There are so many things that this country needs to do that are so obvious.”

This isn’t the first time Baldwin has talked about running for President.

He told a crowd at George Washington University last year that he’d be a great president, saying that he does want to run for office, but isn’t sure if his lifestyle is a good fit for the demands of politics.

Donald Trump has yet to comment.

Trump pitched peace to Kim Jong Un with this Hollywood-style video starring Kim as the leading man


 

  • Donald Trump commissioned a Hollywood-style video hyping peace in Korea to show Kim Jong Un.
  • It was released to the media at a press conference on Tuesday.
  • It features epic shots and frames Kim as a potential “hero of his people” who can “remake history.”
  • Trump said that Kim and his aides “loved” watching it, and hoped they would make it a reality.

Donald Trump played Kim Jong Un a Hollywood-style video hyping the prospect of peace, which cast Kim as its leading man.

The video, which Trump made public later that day at a press conference, made a dramatic pitch for the benefits of peace between the two nations. You can watch the English version above.

The film, credited to “Destiny Pictures” drew on the “in a world” and “one man, one choice” framing of Hollywood action movies.

It labored the comparison further by including credits for Trump and Kim like Hollywood stars. The dramatic voiceover framed Kim as a potential “hero of his people” with the chance to achieve “prosperity like he has never seen.”

It includes a sweeping orchestral score, epic shots of earth from outer space, and horses galloping along the beach, interspersed with imagery of Kim and Trump.

According to President Trump, Kim “loved” the video, which he played in Korean to the North Korean leader and eight aides on an iPad at their private bilateral meeting.

Here is a transcript of the pivotal part of the video, which offers Kim the chance to “remake history.”

“A new world can begin today. One of friendship, respect and goodwill. Be part of that world, where the doors of opportunity are ready to be open: investment form around the world, where you can have medical breakthroughs, an abundance of resources innovative technology and new discoveries.

“What if? Can history be changed? Will the world embrace this change? And when could this moment in history begin?

“It comes down to a choice. On this day, in this time, in this moment the world will be watching, listening, anticipating, hoping.

“Will this leader choose to advance his country, and be part of a new world? Be the hero of his people? Will he shake the hand of peace and enjoy prosperity like he has never seen?

“A great life, or more isolation? Which path will be chosen?

“Featuring President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un… in a meeting to remake history. To shine in the sun. One moment, one choice. What if? The future remains to be written.”

Trump was asked a question about the video at the press conference, during which he said he commissioned the video as a way to sell peace to Kim.

Trump said:

“I showed it to him today, actually, during in meeting, towards the end of the meeting and I think he loved it. We didn’t have a big screen like you have the luxury of having, we didn’t need it because we had it on a cassette, an iPad, and they played it and about eight of their representatives were watching it and I thought they were fascinated by it.

“I thought it was well done, I showed it to you because that’s the future, I mean, that could very well be the future. The other alternative is just not a very good alternative, it’s just not good.

“But I showed it because I really want him to do something.”

He later said that the video showed a vision of “the highest level of future development,” and that North Korea could also opt for “a much smaller version of this.”

Trump says his summit with Kim Jong Un ‘would not have happened’ without Otto Warmbier


 

  • Otto Warmbier was a US university student who was detained and sentenced to hard labor in North Korea in 2016.
  • He was released home last year after performing 17 months out of his 15-year prison sentence, and died days after his return.
  • Donald Trump told reporters in Singapore after meeting Kim Jong Un that Warmbier “did not die in vain.”

Donald Trump has said that his historic summit with Kim Jong Un would not have happened with Otto Warmbier, the US university student who was detained and tortured in North Korea for 17 months.

In a solo press conference following his meeting with the North Korean leader, Trump said:

“Otto Warmbier is a very special person and he will be for a very long time in my life. His parents are good friends of mine. I think without Otto, this would not have happened.

“Something happened from that day — it was a terrible thing, it was brutal, but a lot of people started to focus on what was going on, including North Korea.

“I really think that Otto is someone who did not die in vain. I told this to his parents: A special young man, and I have to say: Special parents, special people.

“Otto did not die in vain. He had a lot to do with us being here today.”

Trump’s comments came in response to a reporter’s asking why he was “so comfortable” calling Kim “very talented.” See the full exchange below — Trump’s remarks on Warmbier come around the 0:40 mark in the video below.

Otto Warmbier was detained in North Korea in January 2016 after allegedly stealing a propaganda poster at his hotel during his five-day tour of the country.

He served 527 days of a 15-year sentence of hard labor, during which US officials staged a surprise trip to Pyongyang last September and demanded that Pyongyang send him home on “humanitarian grounds.”

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters at the time that “bringing Otto home was a big priority for the president.”

Trump also paid tribute to Warmbier and his parents at his 2018 State of the Union address.

Warmbier was released by the North Korean regime on June 12, 2017, and died one week after aged 22.

It’s not unclear what happened during Warmbier’s year in North Korean custody. According to doctors who examined him, Warmbier had severed a severe neurological injury that most likely happened between March and April 2016.

His parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier, also said their son was rendered “blind” and “deaf,” and that “it looked like someone had taken a pliers and rearranged his bottom teeth.” The Warmbier parents added that North Korea was “not a victim — they are terrorists.”

Trump said he addressed the issue of human rights with Kim at their meeting, but unnamed US officials told NBC News on Monday that the US decided not to do so.
