Obama Was Briefed on UFOs But Won’t Say What’s Up

Obama cleverly deflects with an observation about conspiracy theories, so no clear answer. He was quick to answer — yes. Obama knows UFOs are real

Something Went Wrong

Absolutely

No, Ridiculous

I believe in UFOs

Something Went Wrong

Yep

Nope

Then again, Obama could be clowning everyone … After all, the Roswell mystery has survived for decades, so presidents are all looped in. So SC asked the obvious followup … that there’s something in the air. after all, he’s played his share of poker, but Colbert thinks the Prez betrayed his poker face and gave an answer loud and clear. 12/1/2020 5:37 AM PT

Selena Gomez Kidney Jokes Removed from ‘Saved By The Bell’ Reboot

“does selena gomez even have a kidney?” are you serious? 11/30/2020 4:31 PM PT

Selena Gomez is no longer the butt of a couple jokes from the new “Saved By The Bell” cast — after tons of backlash, the show’s removing the kidney jokes. The new Peacock series scrubbed all references to Selena’s kidney transplant after the outrage started pouring in Saturday … The first reference was cavalier … 2 high school classmates loudly discussing Selena’s kidney transplant in the middle of a hallway. the girl went through a life threatening surgery. this is so disgusting. Selena almost lost her life, jokes about her kidney transplant is NOT FUNNY. pic.twitter.com/c8AZbsU1m0— Selena Charts (@selenachartsbr) November 28, 2020

As we reported … Selena’s remained silent, but Peacock apologized for the jokes pretty quickly, saying it was not their intention to make light of her health, and promising to make a donation to her charity. A wall in the background of a scene had graffiti or paint that read in big bold lettering, “DOES SELENA GOMEZ EVEN HAVE KIDNEYS?”

Lots of folks called the jokes disgusting and said Selena’s life-or-death transplant was nothing to joke about. Respect Selena Gomez. but an edited version is already streaming. Saved by the Bell, that's disgusting. in no way is this funny. eagle-eyed Selena fans noticed 2 references in the reboot to the pop star’s 2017 surgery, and they started raising hell on social media over the weekend and even got “RESPECT SELENA GOMEZ” to trend online. @peacockTV RESPECT SELENA GOMEZ pic.twitter.com/ufY7wKmb6C— ame (@corneliasrare) November 28, 2020

COVID was absolutely the last thing on anyone’s mind as hundreds of people partied their hearts out … the pandemic’s more important. tell us officials are actively looking into ways to punish Jake. Ironically, it’s actually because of Jake and other influencers and celebs in the area that Calabasas adopted new COVID restrictions this past summer pertaining to parties like this, including a $100 fine for folks not wearing masks in public. If you peeped Jake’s social media Saturday night — or that of his brother, Logan, or any of his YouTube buddies — you probably saw they had a massive bash at what appeared to be his Calabasas crib … Mayor Weintraub notes she’s aware he was celebrating a massive victory — but frankly, she says that doesn’t matter … Our city sources say they’re also looking at linking up with his HOA to shut down future gatherings. My God 😱😱The way Nate Robinson landed on the canvas. which was packed, and mostly maskless. We’re told it’s tricky since he wasn’t caught violating their ordinances on the spot, but they still might able to ding him — possibly with a fine, or other methods.

On this specific case … Mayor Weintraub says neither her office nor the authorities were notified of Jake’s blowout as it was happening, which she finds strange considering neighbors have flagged authorities about other Calabasas parties. She’s condemning the party, telling TMZ … it’s a little hazy, but it doesn’t bode well for Jake. the gathering Jake hosted this weekend was no doubt a super-spreader event just waiting to happen, and that he should be ashamed of himself for allowing it when so many are suffering from the virus.
