Donald Trump “Little Adam Schitt” Joke Still Fouling Up President’s Twitter Page
Say this for Donald Trump: He can make a joke as well as he can take one.

Days after calling for decorum in the White House – and with his repeated duckings of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner prompting a no-comedian affair next year – the President of the United States tweeted an insult about Rep. Adam Schiff, calling the Democratic congressman from California “little Adam Schitt.”

Trump’s Sunday morning tweet, in full: “So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-ca) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate, but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!”

Any remote possibility that the sophomoric jibe was some sort of auto-correct blunder faded in direct proportion to the hours the tweet remained live (24 and counting) on the President of the United States’ official Twitter page.

Delbonnel, who shot with the Alexa Studio, invited the Coens to take a sneak peek of “Darkest Hour,” and they admired how he was able to capture light and shadow with digital tools. “But it was hard at the beginning,” he said. “They’re not used to watching dailies

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs Review: Coen Brothers Western Shoots Wide

The Coen Brothers' Western anthology, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, features real gems in its tall tales (as well as some fool's gold).

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” could be a movie. If that seems an odd thing to say at the top of a review for the Coen Brothers’ newest film, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, that is because the “Buster Scruggs” of Buster Scruggs is only a fraction of the overall film. Or to be more precise, it is the first (and best) short film in an anthology of six Western yarns written and directed with real affection by Joel and Ethan Coen. And while among the other five shorts in the piece there are also gems (as well as a few pieces of fool’s gold), the picture never quite overcomes how strong the first short was.
