The airline, now best known for forcibly removing and bloodying a paying passenger to make room for some of its employees, is a longtime cosponsor of the annual film festival in New York, and the official. »

12 hours ago

John F. Kennedy had “Camelot.” Barack H. Obama had “Hamilton.” Only 100 days into his presidency, Donald J. Trump already has his own Broadway musical. “Anastasia” opened Monday at the Broadhurst Theatre, and it’s a show that pays homage to the kleptocracy that was the Romanovs of Russia.  How could our president not be thrilled? Early in the show, a Jared Kushner lookalike sings of the glories of his pre-Communist nation in the song “My Petersburg,” even though the place has been renamed Leningrad. Later, the Ivanka Trump-like heroine shows her royal privilege by insisting that a fellow traveler ask. »

If you’re not having them by 16, there’s something wrong with you.” His narration then took a decidedly personal turn. Also Read: Infowars' Alex Jones Claims He's a Fake 'Character'. »
