Sarah Cooper, the viral Trump impersonator, is getting a comedy special on Netflix

Sarah Cooper, the comedian who went viral this year on TikTok and Twitter for her political satire videos impersonating Donald Trump, is getting her own comedy special on Netflix.

While Sarah Cooper has been pursuing comedy full time since 2014 and has published several books, the comedian blew up on social media earlier this year when she began sharing political satire videos of her impersonating Donald Trump by lip-syncing to his speeches.

Cooper’s videos have racked in millions of views across various platforms, including Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and YouTube.

Her first viral video, “How to Medical,” has amassed over 22 million views on Twitter.

In recent years, it’s become common for content creators who go viral on platforms like TikTok and YouTube to go on to ink lucrative deals with big tech and entertainment companies or merch partners.

The Politics of Being Cardi B

Oh, and the presidential election has been whittled down to just two candidates, with “Uncle Bernie,” Cardi’s nickname for Sanders, having conceded to former vice president Joe Biden in April.

Officers sent Palmer to the hospital despite knowing Breonna’s body remained in her home; she told Cardi and the other celebs on the call that the police gave her the runaround for hours when she asked questions about Breonna’s fate.

After participating in a call that gun control advocate Tamika Mallory arranged with Breonna Taylor’s mom, Tamika Palmer, and other celebrities, Cardi became wholly invested in the wrongful death of the 26-year-old Black EMT, who was fatally shot eight times in her home by plainclothes police officers in Louisville, Kentucky.

Whether imploring fellow celebrities and influencers in unprompted Instagram videos to use their platforms to speak out against President Donald Trump’s draconian rule, or expressing her infatuation with the New Deal in a 2018 GQ interview, Cardi never minces words.

It feels like a lifetime ago, given the breakneck pace of the news and the steady erosion of our political system, but it has only been a year since rap lightning rod Cardi B sat down with Democratic presidential hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders in a Detroit nail salon in the summer of 2019.

Hulu will stream Black-ish episode Disney controversially shelved in 2018

Then, a week before the episode were set to air, executives all the way up to then-CEO Bob Iger reportedly expressed concerns over alienating audiences, with Iger speaking to Barris about the “political sensitivities of being a broadcast network in 2018.”

Both Disney executives and Barris’ team were on board with the episode — a high profile production that cost more than $3 million and had talent like Spike Lee attached.

“I cannot wait for everyone to finally see the episode for themselves and, as was the case nearly three years ago, we hope it inspires some much-needed conversation — not only about what we were grappling with then or how it led to where we are now, but conversations about where we want our country to go moving forward and, most importantly, how we get there together,” Barris wrote in his statement.

In November 2017, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote an episode of his Emmy-award winning ABC comedy titled “Please, Baby, Please” that tackled racism in America, ranging from the Charlottesville protests to kneeling in the NFL.

The network suggested Barris and his team make edits to the episode, but “it wasn’t as easy as a nip here or a tuck there, and the sheer tonnage of anti-Trump material rippling through the episode ultimately made the exercise futile,” according to the Reporter.

Analysts Predict PS5 To Outsell Xbox Series X By Twofold - Here's Why

Pokdepinion: I would seriously consider getting an Xbox Series X only if Microsoft made it officially available in Malaysia.

Sony has outsold Microsoft in the gaming console department in every generation thus far, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the PS5 do the same against the Xbox Series X. However, this might just be the fiercest competition we’ve seen yet, and both platforms aren’t even out yet.

The reason for this is that according to their data, there is heavier consumer brand preference for the PlayStation, which Microsoft can’t really do much about with their Xbox gaming brand.

According to games industry research firm DFC Intelligence based on their forecast data until the year 2024, the PS5 will likely outsell the Xbox Series X by roughly twofold.

As many of you may know by now, the PS5 and Xbox Series X will be coming out later this year in Holiday 2020, most likely in November.

Trump end run around Congress raises questions on his claims

By Jonathan Lemire | Associated Press BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — President Donald Trump’s end run around Congress on coronavirus relief is raising questions about whether it would give Americans the economic lifeline he claims and appears certain to face legal challenges.

After negotiations with lawmakers on the next package of pandemic economic assistance hit a wall, Trump used what he said were the inherent powers of the presidency to forge ahead on tax and spending policy that Congress says it is granted by the asserted he had the authority to defer payroll taxes and extend an expired unemployment benefit, although at a lower amount than what the jobless had been getting during the crisis.

But the orders appeared to carry less weight than Trump promoted and cut federal relief spending by shifting more onto the shoulders of struggling states.

Trump’s top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, struggled during a television interview Sunday to clearly explain the specifics of his boss’s order on unemployment aid.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the $100 share from states would come from an earlier pool of federal money and that Trump may waive the requirement about how it can be used.

Here’s why you can’t bet on the outcome of the November election in Nevada

Kornegay said offshore operators have said the U.S. presidential election is “by far” their most popular bet, handling 10 times the amount of wagers as the Super Bowl, which earned Nevada’s 190 books $18.8 million in February.

Kornegay has seen Nevada sports betting regulations ease in recent years — allowing bets on MVP picks, for example — but believes certain rules can be further relaxed.

Sportsbook operators can get permission to offer wagers not laid out in the statutes, but they must be approved by the Nevada Control Board.

Spend from bettors in legal states on illegal bookies dropped 25 percent last year but grew 3 percent for illegal, offshore online sportsbooks, according to a July AGA report.

Kornegay expects to see restrictions loosen up down the road, but Alamo said some of the bets found offshore probably will never make it to legal sportsbooks in Nevada.

5 Major Stars WWE Must Move From Raw To SmackDown

WWE will reportedly host another draft in October, and these five Raw stars must move to SmackDown.

In previous years, the WWE Superstar Shakeup—essentially a lesser version of the draft—had been a big ratings hit for the company, but that didn’t hold true last year when viewership dropped significantly for both Raw and SmackDown.

(Credit: John Palmer/ MediaPunch/IPX) John Palmer/MediaPunch/IPx Brock Lesnar made a brief move to SmackDown last fall for the blue brand’s debut on FOX in what was a clear attempt to ensure a strong rating for the FOX premiere, but within a blink of an eye, “The Beast” was back on Raw permanently.

Perhaps just as important, Lesnar—even as a part-timer—has been a staple of Raw since returning to WWE in 2012, with very few appearances on SmackDown, and is due not only for a change in scenery but for a slate of new potential feuds and storylines.

Tired: Jeff from Community NBC I know the show's not trying to present Jeff as a good guy and that he does improve over the course of the show, but honestly I'm a little tired of the whole "narcissistic dick pursues girl who doesn't want him because he's a narcissistic dick" storyline.

Tired: Jack Lemmon from 30 Rock NBC Well-meaning-yet-sexist boss is already far too much of a trope in real life for it to be entertaining for so many years onscreen.

Wired: Nick from New Girl Fox Now, Nick from the first few seasons is certainly not stable or in any way a role model, but he's still a genuinely good guy.

Dick has also identified at least five other cases where the Williamson County sheriff’s office used excessive force while cameras were rolling for Live PD.
