Stephen A. Smith tore into Colin Kaepernick Saturday in a nearly three-minute rant. The First Take co-host posted a video on Twitter criticizing the quarterback for his handling of an NFL-arranged workout session earlier in the day. Shortly before the session was scheduled to start at the Atlanta Falcons training complex in Flowery Branch, Georgia, Kaepernick’s reps announced it had been moved to a high school field about 60 miles away in Riverdale. They said the change was made to allow the media to cover the session, which the league had closed to journalists at the Falcons facility. Smith suggested the switch was a stunt by Kaepernick and his reps. “Twenty five teams show up in Georgia at the Atlanta Falcons practice facility — state of the art facility, NFL personnel, equipment, video, everything, and what does Colin Kaepernick do,” Smith said, “Colin Kaepernick wants to change the venue.” Related Story Myles Garrett/Mason … [Read more...] about ESPN’s Stephen A.

For anyone who thought this week’s House impeachment hearings were “boring” — as some Republicans complained — Saturday Night Live offered a solution. Up the “pizzazz” by turning the proceedings into a soap opera. After a week-long break, the NBC sketch comedy series returned, and enlisted Mad Men alum Jon Hamm as Ambassador Bill Taylor to help serialize the hearings.

Hamm was joined by Kate McKinnon, who reprised her portrayal of President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani. “Mercury’s in retrograde, so my powers are at an all-time high,” McKinnon joked. Alex Moffatt played Adam Schiff, while Mikey Day served as “cross-examiner with a mysterious brain injury” Jim Jordan. “Let the record show the president is intimidating … [Read more...] about ‘Saturday Night Live’ Turns “Boring” Impeachment Hearings Into Soap Opera Starring Jon Hamm

Several Bollywood celebrities have extended their support to actor Saif Ali Khan, who was recently arrested for assaulting an NRI businessman Iqbal Sharma and later released on bail. On Twitter, stars like Amrita Arora, Farah Ali Khan, Kunal Kohli, Shobhaa De and a few others sympathised with the actor. Amrita Arora, who was present at the location of the tiff, said, “It"s sad that celebs become victims of other people wanting their 15 minutes of fame. Just for the record, if the people concerned were assaulted so badly, how come they were fit enough to be on TV giving interviews all day?" On Twitter, jewellery designer Farah Ali Khan also defended Saif Ali Khan. Farah quipped, “There is something amiss in this incident and I"m sure the facts will come out soon.
