Jimmy Kimmel Gets Donald Trump's Opinion on That Donald Trump Guy in This Chilling Short Film

Slate

Like every other late night host, Jimmy Kimmel found the spectacle of a porn star suing the president irresistible. And as usually happens in this kind of feeding frenzy, Kimmel and his writers landed on some of the same jokes that other hosts did. It's hard to be mad about it, though: When news breaks on the day of a big storm that Stormy Daniels is suing a man with Trump's tastes over a contract where the parties are referred to as "DD" and "PP," you're gonna get some overlap. But Kimmel had a secret weapon: a chilling short film consisting of footage of Donald Trump sarcastically saying bad things about Donald Trump, most of which are true. It doesn't seem like the film was necessarily related to the Stormy Daniels affair when it was conceived and created, and Kimmel doesn't go out of his way to tie it in besides saying, "This is Donald Trump."

Peter Thiel to tap two for Trump transition

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

President-elect Donald Trump has tapped two of Peter Thiel's close associates to advise his transition team, according to a person familiar with the matter. Mark Woolway and Kevin Harrington, who hail from Silicon Valley, have been tasked with easing the transition between administrations by helping identify policies and fill positions in the Commerce Department and the Treasury Department, the person said on the condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak publicly about the appointments. Woolway, acting chief financial officer of start-up Zenefits, who has known Thiel since their days at PayPal, will join the Treasury landing team. Harrington, managing director of Thiel Macro, will join the Commerce landing team. Both worked for long stretches for Thiel's hedge fund Clarium Capital Management.


Trump Has Tweeted About Hillary More than 70 Times Since He Won the Election a Year Ago

Mother Jones

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump looks at Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as she answers a question during the second presidential debate at Washington University in St. Louis, Sunday, Oct. 9, 2016. He just can't quit her. It's been 365 days since Donald Trump won the presidency and Crooked Hillary is still one of his favorite Twitter targets. To be fair, Trump did give former opponent Hillary Clinton a break for a few weeks after November 8, 2016--perhaps he too was in mourning?--but To see just how much the president is not over the election, we've gathered the 70-plus times he's trolled Clinton, at least by name (or nickname), since beating her a year ago.
