Samuel L. Jackson to teach swearing masterclass if enough people vote

Published

on

F–king register to vote, says Samuel L. Jackson.

The swear-happy actor and producer, 71, is offering to teach an epic, multi-language course on the art of cursing if enough people double-check that they’re registered to vote.

“Listen up — if 2,500 of you click a voting action below to make sure you’re #GoodToVote, I will teach you to swear in 15 different languages,” Jackson tweeted Monday along with a clip of him in a sweatshirt and baseball cap while seated in an expensive-looking armchair.

The tweet also includes a link to his page on voter registration website HeadCount, which includes a sultry-looking photo of Jackson along with patriotically colored buttons offering Americans the ability to register to vote, check their registration status and “make your vote plan.”

Jackson is well-known for being among the Hollywood actors with the most prolifically dirty onscreen mouths — although a survey conducted earlier this year found that “The Wolf of Wall Street” star Jonah Hill beat Jackson for the top slot. While Jackson has sworn onscreen 301 times in his career, Hill has sworn 376 — mostly in the record-breakingly swear-heavy Scorsese flick.

In addition to cussing onscreen and using obscenities to encourage Americans to vote, Jackson also gave a profane PSA back in April. “Stay the f–k home,” the “Pulp Fiction” actor said during an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in response to quarantine orders designed to help flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He also riffed on the book “Go the F–k to Sleep” during the appearance, presenting the 2011 kids bedtime story as a public order that people should not leave their homes, including the verse:

Stay the f–k at home
Corona is spreading; this s–t is no joke
It’s no time to work or roam
The way you can fight it is simple, my friends
Just stay the f–k at home

Young Wonder Woman sends heartwarming video message to fan with rare condition

Published

Aspell’s message comes not long after her adult counterpart, Wonder Woman 1984 star Gal Gadot, expressed support for Chillery-Watson’s fundraising effort on social media. Gadot, who once called playing the superhero her dream role, got wind of Chillery-Watson’s challenge after news of it was posted to Twitter.

“My real wonder girl!” Gadot tweeted on September 9. “Wow, this video blew my mind. You’re a true hero. So inspiring and strong. I hope one day we get to meet each other. Until then I’m sending you lots of love and a big big hug!!!”

Since launching her fundraising campaign through JustGiving, Chillery-Watson has raised over $13,000 USD (£10,800). Almost $4,400 was donated by the Wonder Woman and Justice League actress just hours after posting her support on Twitter. That’s near twice the original campaign goal of £6,000 — or $7,646 USD — set by the Chillary-Watson family.

Amid the current global health crisis, many charities have seen donations dip as individuals direct funds towards initiatives and efforts addressing the pandemic. “It has been wonderful to receive this support from the Wonder Woman cast during Chillery-Watson’s challenge,” Woodhead said in a statement.

With just a few days left of the fundraiser, Wonder Woman fans won’t have to wait long to see the final donation of Carmela Chillery-Watson’s month-long campaign, but they will have to wait December 25 to see Wonder Woman 1984 in theaters.

Trump Nominates Amy Coney Barrett to Replace RBG on the Supreme Court

Published

On Saturday, Donald Trump formally nominated Amy Coney Barrett to take the place of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg on the Supreme Court.

Barrett is a conservative 7th Circuit appeals judge from Indiana who has been a federal judge for three years. Early in her career she also served on George W. Bush’s legal team in the Bush v. Gore decision that handed the presidency to Bush despite his popular vote loss in 2000.

In his announcement Saturday, Trump described Barrett as a “towering intellect” who had “unyielding loyalty to the Constitution.”

Her nomination goes directly against Ginsburg’s dying wish, according to her granddaughter, who said Ginsburg, just days before her death last Friday at the age of 87, said: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

The move also comes in stark contrast to Republicans’ successful efforts to block the appointment of President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, to the Supreme Court ahead of the 2016 presidential election after the death of late Supreme Courty Justice Antonin Scalia.

At the time, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had said, “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president” — a statement that now goes against Senate Republicans’ efforts to secure Trump’s Supreme Court nominee within a month of the election.

Other leading contenders for the nomination included Kate Todd, the White House’s deputy counsel; Barbara Lagoa, a federal appeals judge from Florida; and Allison Rushing, a federal judge from North Carolina.
