    Jon Stewart Takes Down Mike Huckabee Without Saying A Word - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

          Jon Stewart is known for his biting satirical wit, but on Monday night's "Daily Show" he managed to bite his tongue when it came to GOP presidential candidate and frequent target Mike Huckabee.  Huckabee had said the nuclear deal with Iran would send Israelis to "the door of the oven," comparing the agreement to the Holocaust.  Rather than tear apart Huckabee's outrageous comments, which have been denounced by numerous Jewish organizations, including several that oppose the deal, Stewart reacted with a series of gestures and sounds.  He also found time to react -- again, wordlessly -- to some of Huckabee's other recent offensive comments, from his verbal attack on Beyonce to his claim that he would've have pretended he was a female so he could shower with girls in high school. Check it out in the clip above. Related on HuffPost: -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Jim Gaffigan at the Greek - Huffington Post 3 hours ago

        Jim Gaffigan / Contagious Tour Some comics are preceded by a big introduction, naming their successes on different media, their drawing power in person or their well known work to excite the crowd. Jim Gaffigan walks to the microphone center stage after only "Ladies and Gentlemen, Jim Gaffigan." The roar from the packed Greek Theater already tells you the affect he's had on his audiences for years, and why he had the most watched comedy special on Comedy Central last year. He has had nine comedy albums and the last two were nominated for Grammy's. His uniquely self effacing style takes self detriment to a whole new level. It would make the early work of Woody Allen seem as if Allen were a braggart. Yet Gaffigan is so bold about his short comings that you're laughing with him, even as you're cringing at his moments of misery. Pale and heavyset, he comes right out of the gate with "Hey, you know what? You don't have to tell fat people they're fat. They already know." He proudly explains he's wearing his shirt tonight because 'it fits." And how he's recently 'fatted out' of some clothes. "That's a milestone moment," he points out, trying to figure out how it happened. "Maybe it's because I'm constantly eating." Gaffigan is comfortable with his uncomfortableness. His continual third person high pitched whispering commentary, however, is not. It's his unique trait and it endlessly berates him. "Is he just going to talk about being fat all night...?" he asks in the high whisper between his fat jokes. "I can't believe he said that about his kids," the voice will say inbetween his family jokes. It's a harsh and brilliant choice that he constantly invalidates his whole act, while performing it. Regardless he bravely plods on as the voice rises in shocked confusion that he's plodding on. Perhaps it's a voice he hears in his head, or one he's afraid he'll hear in the audience. It literally gives color commentary throughout his show. "I can't believe he said that about Jesus..." His comedy is also brazenly clueless, particularly when he warns us: "I know religious jokes make some people uncomfortable. Especially for those of you going to hell." Or when he discusses the environment: "For the record, I'd never eat a dolphin, because I don't eat fish." Or as he talks proudly of his children and how they've ruined his life: "I love my kids. But parenting is unending, exhaustive and thankless. But eventually you die." Comics can take several roads to center stage. They can objectively observe, and make fun of you, like Seinfeld. They can become many people and show their faults and charms, like Crystal or Williams, or they can miraculously make you feel as if they're on stage talking about you. When they are failing at the same things you fear you are, so spectacularly, it makes you feel like there's a little hope for yourself and that you're not alone. Gaffigan has built an audience for himself by pointing out that his simple life seems so terribly hard that he should be asked to stop trying because he's embarrassing everyone else. That's why it's so funny. And that's why there may be hope for the rest of us. Jim Gaffigan's "Contagious" tour continues through December nationwide. More information at www.jimgaffigan.com.

    Tom Cruise And Jimmy Fallon Reenact 'Top Gun' During Lip Sync Battle - Huffington Post 5 hours ago

          Sorry, Goose. Tom Cruise just found a new wingman. Cruise and Jimmy Fallon brought it to their "Tonight Show" lip sync battle on Monday, with the "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" star performing to The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face" and Meat Loaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" while Fallon broke out "Undercover of the Night" by The Rolling Stones. That was all great, but the highlight of the night came when Fallon enlisted Cruise's help for the Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Loving Feeling," and the pair went into the danger zone, reenacting the famous "Top Gun" scene by lip-serenading an audience member. It was a "Lip Sync Battle" for the history books, and definitely a close second to Cruise's "Risky Business" dance, which the star even teased at one point. (The pants stayed on this time, though.) "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC. Also on HuffPost: To subscribe to our HuffPost Entertainment WhatsApp account: 1. Download WhatsApp on your phone. 2.

    Donald Trump's Attorney Defends Him Against Ex-Wife's Rape Allegation - Huffington Post NEW!

        Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump may have raped his ex-wife Ivana Trump, according to a 1993 biography of the real estate mogul uncovered by The Daily Beast. Trump's attorney on Monday denied the allegation, claiming “you cannot rape your spouse.” “You’re talking about the front-runner for the GOP, presidential candidate, as well as private individual, who never raped anybody," Michael Cohen, the Trump Organization’s special counsel, told The Daily Beast. "And, of course, understand that by the very definition, you can’t rape your spouse.”  The biography, Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump, by Harry Hurt III, details a 1989 incident in which Trump reportedly confronted his then-wife Ivana, pulling out clumps of her hair and sexually assaulting her. She characterized the incident as rape during the couple’s divorce proceedings in the early 1990s and said she felt “violated,” according to legal documents cited by The Daily Beast. Hurt's book includes a "Notice to Reader" pasted on the flyleaf -- a statement by Ivana Trump saying she didn't mean it when she testified Trump had raped her. "I do not want the press or media to misconstrue any of the facts," she wrote. The couple divorced in 1992. Trump denied the allegation when the biography was released, calling the author “a guy without much talent. He is a guy that is an unattractive guy who is a vindictive and jealous person.”  Cohen said Monday that Ivana Trump was not raped “in its literal sense.” “She felt raped emotionally,” he said. “She was not referring to it [as] a criminal matter, and not in its literal sense, though there’s many literal senses to the word.” Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), who has been outspoken against sexual assault in the military and on college campuses, quickly weighed in on Twitter, criticizing Trump's lawyer for not knowing "that rape is rape." Trump, a real estate mogul, has made numerous offensive comments about rape, most notably when he kicked off his presidential campaign last month and alleged that undocumented Mexican immigrants are “rapists.” Read the whole story at The Daily Beast.   -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Putting touch has deserted me, says Poulter - Yahoo Sports 1 hour ago

        By Tony Jimenez WOBURN, England (Reuters) - Less than three years after his magical putter inspired a 'miracle' Ryder Cup victory for Europe, Ian Poulter says his touch on the greens has temporarily deserted him. "I'm not disappointed how I played because I thought I played good but I'm disappointed I didn't hole my fair share of putts," Poulter told Reuters in an interview. "Some weeks you just can't see the right lines, you can't visualize the ball going in the hole, and that puts the rest of your game under pressure to hit it close." Poulter showed nerves of steel when he sank five birdie putts in as many holes on the penultimate day to haul Europe out of trouble before the team went on to secure their 'Miracle of Medinah' triumph over the United States in 2012.

    Car and pedestrian collision? There'll soon be an app for that - PC World NEW!

        A safety system that ties cars and smartphones together to stop those heart-stopping near misses between cars and pedestrians could be standardized by the end of this year.The technology involves smartphones broadcasting data over a short-range radio channel to nearby cars, so the cars can determine if a collision is likely. Unlike today’s radar-based systems, this has the ability to warn around blind corners and can alert both the driver and pedestrian.It’s being developed by engineers at Honda and was demonstrated last week at the company’s new research and development center in Mountain View, in the heart of Silicon Valley.In the demonstration that took place in a parking lot, a car was slowly cruising a row looking for a space. Ahead, and unseen to the driver, a pedestrian was walking between a car and SUV while listening to music, and about to step into the path of the oncoming vehicle.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
