That 'Game of Thrones' Stark family reunion had the internet   
Yahoo News - 7 months
Spoilers follow for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode four. So don't act like you haven't been warned, dummy.  Finally, (most of) the Starks are back together.  With winter falling all around Winterfell, it was only fitting that the Starks have a family reunion for almost everyone who's still alive.  This episode saw the triumphant return of Arya. Though two dullards tried to keep her out of her own home, there's no stopping a girl who is no one and it led to a very emotional reunion with Sansa over their father's grave. Things were only made more weepy when Bran joined them by the weirwood (even though he's v creepy now and wtf is he).  SEE ALSO: 'Game of Thrones' has become so self-referential it causes me physical pain Jon Snow is still in Dragonstone, undertaking his new mining operation, trying to Make Westeros Great Again, so he unfortunately couldn't join his surviving 'siblings' in Winterfell. But all the same, it was extremely touching to see these disparate survivors who h...

Seth Meyers Zings Donald Trump With DJ Khaled's Famous Catchphrase
Huffington Post - 8 months
Bless up! Seth Meyers used a DJ Khaled quote to poke fun at President Donald Trump on Thursday. The “Late Night” host noted in his “A Closer Look” segment the irony of how Trump has reportedly ended up under investigation for possible obstruction of justice. Meyers explained how former FBI Director James Comey had assured Trump he was not personally under investigation as part of any probe into potential Russian interference with the 2016 election. But when Comey refused to repeat his assurance publicly, Trump fired him. That led to him reportedly being placed under investigation, a move the president described as a “witch-hunt.” Meyers described the whole situation as “one of the greatest self-owns in political history.” “I want to get rid of this boomerang,” he said, imitating Trump’s voice. “Oh, I know, I’ll throw it.” He then used the “immortal words” of DJ Khaled to sum it all up.
