Bill Maher wants to build bridges. The “ Real Time ” host was a vocal critic of president-elect Donald Trump throughout his campaign and has since urged Democrats to “ stop being so nice ” in a bid to regain power ― but he’s now also called on the country to come together in the wake of the Republican candidate’s election victory. “ Like it or not, we’re living with Trump now ,” the comedian said on Friday, before stating that currently “half the country literally wants nothing to do with the other half.” Maher said it simply wasn’t a sustainable way to live, likening it to a version of roommate hell

Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach Mike Munchak has absolutely no chill.  Towards the end of the first quarter of the Steelers’ Wild Card matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night, Munchak yanked a handful of Bengals safety Reggie Nelson’s dreadlocks.  Nelson barrelled into the Steelers’ sidelines after pushing running back Jordan Todman out-of-bounds. Munchak may have felt like Nelson unnecessarily shoved his running back into the sideline — Todman was nearly out-out-bounds when Nelson hit him, and the extra push sent Todman crashing into the bench. Todman should have been the star of the play for his darting run, but one of his coaches overreacted to a bit of chippiness on Nelson’s part.

Some 1,500 Israelis and Palestinians attended a rally for coexistence and equality in downtown Jerusalem Saturday night. The demonstrators called for an end to the ongoing Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, which they believe is a root cause of the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian violence that reignited earlier this month. Many held signs saying “Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies” and chanted peace slogans that rhyme in Hebrew, such as “Money for the neighborhoods / Not for the settlements.”  Noa Levy, 30, a human rights lawyer and activist with Hadash , a radical Jewish-Arab political party, came from the Israeli city of Jaffa to attend the event.

The United Nations has confirmed a typhoid outbreak in Yarmouk , Syria’s embattled Palestinian refugee camp. It’s the latest hardship for a community that’s suffered heavy bombing , an Islamic State takeover and devastating food shortages.  U.N. spokesman Chris Gunness  said that six people were diagnosed with typhoid fever Tuesday in a statement shared with The Huffington Post.  “The vulnerability of civilians in Yarmouk remains of the highest severity,” he said.  “Our concern is that these typhoid cases only represent the tip of the iceberg,  because the erosion of health services and appalling public health standards create a massive, massive risk of diseases breaking out,” Gunness told the Thomas Reuters Foundation.  The U.N.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady took the fight over his “Deflategate” suspension to social media and federal court on Wednesday, and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft backed the three-time Super Bowl MVP, saying “I was wrong to put my faith in the league.” One day after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell rejected Brady’s appeal, the star quarterback posted a 507-word statement on Facebook with his firmest denial yet, writing: “I did nothing wrong.” Kraft followed with an unscheduled address to the media gathered at Gillette Stadium for the opening of training camp and the team’s defense of its fourth Super Bowl championship.    “It is completely incomprehensible to me that the league continues to take steps to disparage one of its all-time great players, and a man for whom I have the utmost respect,” the Patriots owner said

During a press conference Thursday morning, Patriots coach Bill Belichick denied having any knowledge of his team playing with intentionally deflated footballs last Sunday against the Colts. But that message may have been overshadowed by a bright red hashtag reading “#Flexball,” which appeared all over the digital billboard behind the coach as he addressed the media. The team stands accused of having let air out of their game balls, making them more flexible and therefore easier to play with.
