  • Anthony Scaramucci rips Steve Bannon on 'Late Show with Stephen Colbert': 'If it was up to me, he'd be gone'

    Golocal247.com news

    "The Mooch" just fired a shot at Steve Bannon.  Appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday night, Trump's very short-lived communications director Anthony Scaramucci accused chief strategist Steve Bannon of leaking and said he'd have him booted from the White House. SEE ALSO: Anthony Scaramucci is coming back, and if his recent tweets are a hint, it's going to be intense "Well if it was up to me, he would be gone," Scaramucci said. "But it's not up to me."  TONIGHT: Anthony #TheMooch @Scaramucci is here and he's revealing who he would front-stab if he was still in the White House. #LSSC pic.twitter.com/sEljprdlH1 — The Late Show (@colbertlateshow) August 15, 2017 The revelation came following a discussion about Scaramucci's relationship with ex-White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, in which Colbert asked about a less-than-flattering photo of the pair. "That's a rough photo," the former White House communications director said. Colbert then quizzed Scaramucci if his job was to "get to rid of [Priebus] and Sean Spicer." "I don't want to say it that way," Scaramucci replied. But Colbert pressed, and asked him to "say it like the Mooch" and to "give me some Mooch," which is now your new way to demand gossip. "So 'The Mooch' of Long Island would say there's no love lost there, I mean, look at the picture, right?" Scaramucci said.  "The weird thing about my relationship with Reince is that we were actually pretty good friends when I was a political donor writing checks to the RNC, but once I became part of the administration, or whatever reason, it was a little more adversarial." https://t.co/jw2g9274oL It's not where you've been, it's where you are going. pic.twitter.com/BJjZOv5PSh — Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) August 14, 2017 Colbert also asked about Trump's reaction to the deadly events in Charlottesville, which has been criticized for not being damning enough against members of the alt-right, neo-Nazis, and other white supremacists. "I know him as a compassionate person … it’s a super-tough job, he made a step to give up which was a luxurious lifestyle," Scaramucci said.  "Who cares? We're supposed to feel bad for a guy because he gave up his billion-dollar lifestyle to be the most powerful man in the world?" Colbert responded. And somehow, we got to the topic of Colbert asking why "The Mooch" has never attempted to suck his own, well, you know what — in relation to that infamous quote relating to Bannon. "Eddie Murphy said if he could do that, he would never leave the house," he said. "No, I'm not capable of doing it."

  • Scary video shows a bear charging a dog in Alaska

    Golocal247.com news

    A mama black bear was caught on camera charging a Siberian husky at a campground in Alaska.  The recently released clip, from a campground in Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, shows a bear and her three cubs approaching a trailer from the woods on July 5. When the bear spots the dog it delivers a bluff charge, and the bear and husky get into a brief fight off camera. A woman can then be heard yelling at the bear, which returns to its cubs and runs away.  Tom Henderson, who uploaded the video earlier this month, said in an email that his wife is the person heard yelling in the clip. Fortunately, the dog was unharmed in the scuffle, despite its screams. Henderson also said that bear sightings are not uncommon in the camp, though they have not had a problem like this before. Unfortunate interactions between humans and wildlife are unfortunately common in the area. In June a man was mauled after brown bear with a sow got defensive.  Mashable has reached out to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game for additional information.

    A woman who was resigned to never seeing her beautiful engagement ring ever again - and had bought a smaller one as a replacement - was shocked when her daughter-in-law found it on a carrot. The family had harvested some carrots from their farm in Alberta, Canada, for dinner, and one had grown around the engagement ring, which was then pulled from the ground. Mary Grams, 84, had lost her beloved ring in 2004 while she was in the garden, and thought she would never see it again. "I recognized it right away," she said.

  • Creator of Godwin's law: 'It's OK to call Charlottesville white supremacists Nazis'

    Golocal247.com news

    Back in 1990, author Mike Godwin noted that the longer an online conversation went on, the more likely it was that one of the participants would eventually bring up an argument about Hitler. He made the statement before the world wide web changed our lives, but his famous law is still as relevant today as it was 27 years ago . Today, it’s known as Godwin’s Law, which says: “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hitler approaches 1.” Charlottesville far-right protest Godwin’s Law, which can be applied to any discussion - from forums to comment threads - has once again been in the headlines following the violence in Charlottesville. Heather Heyer was killed when a car ploughed into a group of people protesting against white supremacist groups marching in the Virginia city. Following the shocking events, a Facebook user got in contact with Mr Godwin to see if he thought it was OK to call white supremacists Nazis. “Sir, I implore you to post a statement on FB, giving your views on the recent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville,” it said. “Your adage is invoked so very often to shut down discussions about politics and social issues as soon as any comparisons to Nazism and 1930’s Germany are made, but now that videos have surfaced showing the Nazi flag being waved in the Charlottesville parade … Sir would you please make a public statement?” Mr Godwin’s response was emphatic “By all means, compare these s--theads to Nazis. Again and again. I'm with you,” he wrote. He later told Gizmodo: “Like so many people, I have been appalled at what happened in Charlottesville that I haven’t known what to say, or whether to say anything at all. “But she [the Facebook user] asked for something that was easy for me to give.” Meanwhile, Anonymous has shuts down neo-Nazi and KKK websites following the Charlottesville rally.
