Last fall, Donald Trump did not lash out at the FBI when James Comey decided to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails mere weeks before the election. However, he’s terribly angry about a Thursday CNN report about how the FBI refused to bury Russia stories that did not present a good look for his administration (following a request from White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus). Even worse (in Trump’s eyes), the story about this refusal came from his least favorite cable news network, which Trump regularly accuses of being “fake news.” The story itself was a leak, which makes Trump even more upset, but god only knows who leaked it.
On Friday morning, Trump’s predictable angry tweet storm arrived. He called the FBI “totally unable” to stop “leakers” within the government. He says this will be “devastating” to the country, and he added “FIND NOW.”
This isn’t the first time Trump has trashed U.S. intelligence over Russia. Last time, he accused them of manufacturing stories about Russia, and now it’s all about leaks in Trump’s mind. Last week, Trump said (during his combative press conference), “The leaks are real, but the news is fake.”
The CNN story also drew upon Priebus’s complaints about the press on Fox News Sunday last week. He insisted the reports of U.S. intelligence intercepting calls between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence were false, and he refused to name his sources. This prompted Chris Wallace to tell Preibus to sit down: “You don’t get to tell us what to do.” And the FBI’s response sent the same message.
For what it’s worth, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer denies the CNN story and claims, “We didn’t try to knock the story down. We asked them to tell the truth.” Spicer also claimed that the FBI told the White House that the press was reporting inaccurate Russia stories, and he says that’s why the White House made the request. However, Spicer’s not known for possessing truth-telling skills, so nothing has been solved here.
Meanwhile, the FBI shall continue its probe into the Trump-Russia mess.

The NBA is better than every other sport at everything, including Twitter fights in the middle of the night involving a current player and a Hall of Famer that currently works for TNT. You don’t get that anywhere. Jay Cutler will never be up at 3 a.m. tweeting at Terry Bradshaw. Never happened.
But it was Javale McGee and Shaquille O’Neal — again — in the early hours of Friday being mad online.
Like any good beef, it started offline. On Thursday night’s edition of NBA on TNT, Shaq fronted a Dr. Strange parody that featured McGee missing dunks, falling down, and Shaq starring in the clip.
So you can see how this may upset someone. It did.
McGee responded at 2:25 a.m. (not even 11:30 p.m. his time, so it’s still early) requesting that Shaq… well, you see.
If you’d like to know what EAD stands for, it’s “Eat A Dick”.
Shaq got around to responding at 3:57 a.m. ET, which is very likely his time zone since the TNT show is shot in Atlanta.
Shaq closed the argument with a photoshop he had.
Shaq scored good with the photoshop. It’s interesting to see what happens in the future. Who knows, maybe they’ll work it out.

“I will sing again, as #ariel #thelittlemermaid,” Lohan wrote on Instagram Saturday, alongside a side-by-side pic of her and the animated mermaid princess. “@disney approve that “#billcondon directs it along with my sister @alianamusic singing the theme song for the soundtrack.”
“Also @kgrahamsfb plays Ursula,” the actress continued. “Simply because, she is the best. Take one. @disneystudios.”
Disney has not commented on the film and has not responded to Lohan’s post.
In summer 2016, it was reported Disney execs were in talks about a possible live-action Little Mermaid movie. That November, Broadway’s Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda told Vulture that he was in “super-early talks” to take part in the film, following reports he had teamed up with the 1989 animated movie’s composer Alan Menken to pen its songs. Miranda had recently starred and written music for Disney’s Moana.
“I literally don’t have a title for what my job on The Little Mermaid is yet,” Lin-Manuel said. “Right now, it’s the guy who wears the ‘don’t mess it up’ hat. If I could sign a contract with that job title on it, that would be great! But that’s sort of where we are.”
According to Soulja Boy (who isn’t very reliable) that’s because Chris Brown backed out of the planned boxing match.

In addition to the Tweets, Soulja posted a video in which Wack 100 explains that everyone has signed off on the fight but Chris Brown.
