Americans obviously think Canada is little more than a novelty hovering above them, and so unworthy of respect that talk-show hosts like Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest think it is perfectly okay to prod our prime minister to take off his shirt. Many saying it was not Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s finest hour after his appearance on Kelly & Ryan in Niagara Falls. Kelly Ripa introducing Trudeau as the “sexiest” politician in the world. Chatting how he is not treated as a world leader but as a vacuum-brained celebrity. Many critics saying it was impolite and ill-mannered of the hosts but that if the Prime Minister’s Office didn’t know the line of questioning, someone needs to be fired. If they did know in advance, and allowed it, it only makes it worse.
Batman is the superhero but Wonder Woman sent a signal over the weekend that even Hollywood couldn’t miss. Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” grossed $103.3 million in North America over its debut weekend, a figure that easily surpassed industry expectations, set a new record for a film directed by a woman and bested all previous stand-alone female superhero movies put together.
Ariana Grande has managed to win over a critic — in the form of British T-V host Piers Morgan. The former C-N-N talking head went off on Grande on Twitter after the terrorist attack on her concert two weeks ago. Morgan blasted Grande for returning home to the U-S, instead of visiting attack victims. Now, Morgan is singing a different tune, now that Grande has not only returned to Manchester to visit some of those injured — but also to do a concert that raised millions for victims. That prompted Morgan to tweet during the Sunday show that he was sorry he misjudged Grande — and now says she’s “an admirable young woman.”
