Stephen Colbert  has poked fun at President-elect  Donald Trump’s reported friendship with Russian leader  Vladimir Putin . The “ Late Show ” host conducted a spoof interview with Trump Monday, in which the Republican “revealed” what the Russian president had sent him as an election victory gift ―  a beautiful, yuuuge, tremendous, enormous wooden horse. “ Have you thought about looking inside the horse to see if there is anything in it before you open the gates and bring it into America?” Colbert asked Trump ― in reference to the ancient tale of how Greeks concealed themselves in a wooden horse in order to enter the city of Troy

Set to the tune of the 1984 Wham! hit “ Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go ,” the song’s chorus includes the line: “Donald Trump, you have to go go ― you’re a bigot, racist and homophobe.”  “A lot of people have been watching Trump’s presidential bid going ‘ nah, nah, this won’t happen ,’” Fitzgerald told News.com.au. “But as the election got closer we just felt we had to do something and get involved.” Check it out above

Zaki’s Review: American Ultra

21Ago

American Ultra posits a mildly amusing premise — what if a stoned-out slacker found out he was Jason Bourne? — and turns it into ninety or so minutes of filmmaking that are probably a lot more engaging than they have any right to be.
