    A tweet written by Vice President Kamala Harris praising Dr. Seuss four years ago resurfaced Tuesday after President Biden failed to mention the children’s author when making his "Read Across America Day" proclamation. Richard Grenell, former acting director of national intelligence under former President Trump, retweeted the post that said: "Happy birthday, #DrSeuss! ‘The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.’" Harris’ tweet was written on March 2, 2017, Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the day chosen to honor his legacy and promote literacy with the annual day.  Biden stoked criticism Tuesday for failing to mention Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Geisel, in his address. Both Trump and former President Obama – Biden’s immediate predecessors – had mentioned Dr. Seuss in their remarks about the day, which was established to honor the author in 1998. Former presidents George W....

The 2021 All-Star starters were announced on TNT on Thursday night, and much to the disdain of Boston Celtics fans worldwide, Jaylen Brown was nowhere to be found.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said Friday morning that the Trump administration’s “lack of candor” and failure to prioritize science regarding the coronavirus “very likely” cost lives. Fauci, who is serving as President Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor, also told CNN’s “New Day” that the previous administration’s rhetoric surrounding the pandemic led to divisiveness and an overall lack of trust among Americans. “You know, it very likely did,” Fauci said when asked if the Trump administration’s “lack of facts” contributed to the death toll. “We’ve had a lot of divisiveness, we’ve had facts that were very, very clear that were questioned, people were not trusting what health officials were saying,” Fauci said. “You can see when you’re starting to go down paths that are not based on any science at all – and we’ve been there before, I don’t want to rehash it – that is not helpful at all.” Fauci, who...
    The Jets are entering the second week of their coaching search. Here are some thoughts on the search so far: Settle in, this could take a while. The Jets promised an extensive search during which they were going to cast a wide net and they have delivered. They interviewed Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus and Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley on Sunday. That brings the list to seven known interviews and they also plan on interviewing Saints secondary coach Aaron Glenn and Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith in the coming days. My sense is the Jets will regroup at midweek and decide whether to add anyone to the initial interview list and who they would like to talk to a second time. There are a few things that will drag out the process this year longer than most years, not just for the Jets but...

    (CNN)"I came, I saw, I conquered," read Zlatan Ibrahimovic's tweet confirming he was leaving MLS at the end of last season. The Swedish soccer star might be confident he conquered North American football, but Ibrahimovic is a notable omission in the MLS' list of its 25 greatest ever players.Reaching its landmark 25th season in 2020, MLS released "The 25 Greatest" on Wednesday to acknowledge the players who, in the words of the league, "achieved the most on the field, drove the narrative off the field and helped lay the foundation or set the course going forward." And with the likes of David Beckham, Clint Dempsey, Landon Donovan and Carlos Valderrama making the cut, Ibrahmovic was squeezed out. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored 52 goals in 56 appearances for LA Galaxy.It was in March 2018 that Ibrahimovic announced himself to American sports fans with a ludicrous long-range volley on his MLS debut as...
    Peter Byrne – WPA Pool/Getty Images The UK will leave the EU’s trading rules in less than five weeks’ time. With or without a trade deal with Brussels, Brexit will inflict a significant hit on the UK economy, the Office for Budget Responsibility said this week. No deal would reduce long-term output by 6%, it said. However, the cost and disruption that awaits the UK didn’t feature in Rishi Sunak’s Spending Review. The Chancellor and the rest of Boris Johnson’s government are reluctant to talk about Brexit due to its associated costs, Theresa May’s former Europe adviser told Business Insider. Experts agreed that the government’s refusal to be upfront about Brexit was hindering preparation. Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

    The Weeknd felt the snub coming. The 30-year-old singer lashed out at the Recording Academy Tuesday night after being snubbed in the Grammy nominations earlier in the day. “The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency…” he tweeted. Fans were quick to jump to his defense in Twitter replies, praising the Canadian artist — whose real name is Abel Tesfaye — for being open. Despite his album “After Hours” having two number one hits — “Heartless” followed by “Blinding Lights” — The Weeknd, who is a three-time Grammy winner, was not nominated in any category, let alone the “Big Four” (Best Album, Song, Record and New Artist). Following the live stream announcement of nominees, the Recording Academy’s interim chief Harvey Mason Jr. directly addressed The Weeknd’s omission, pointing to members of the Academy for making the decision. When asked by Variety why his album...
    Country music artists are outraged after the CMA Awards did not include a tribute to late music legend John Prine this week. Grammy-winning singer-songwriters Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires went so far as to return their lifetime membership cards to the Country Music Association, while other artists said the music on the show “sucks.” Critics’ darling Sturgill Simpson reportedly said of the Prine diss in a post that was later deleted: “Don’t get it twisted … Wouldn’t be caught dead at this tacky ass glitter and botox … pony show even if my chair had a morphine drip. I just wanted to see if they would say his name but nope.” Singer Margo Price slammed the show’s lack of diversity, and posted: “Anyone still participating is a socially unconscious pawn … Artists pander woke authenticity when it benefits them and then sit in silence as they collect their plastic...
    Getty Danny Green (foreground) and Avery Bradley For Lakers guard Danny Green, this year’s championship was not necessarily something new. He has done it before, first with San Antonio in 2014, then with the Raptors in 2019. Three NBA rings, three very different teams. Thus he has some familiarity with the way NBA franchises handle giving out rings to players and members of the team staff. Speaking recently on his podcast, “Inside the Green Room,” Green pointed out two players who were not with the Lakers in the NBA restart in Orlando, but who deserve championship rings. Those players were injured center DeMarcus Cousins and Troy Daniels, both of whom were released after the trade deadline. ALL the latest Los Angeles Lakers news straight to your inbox!

    ARSENAL academy chief Per Mertesacker has confirmed Mesut Ozil's continued omission is NOT because of his on-field performances - suggesting it could be 'personal'. The German playmaker, 32, has been completely frozen out by Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta in recent months. 2Mertesacker has suggested personal issues could be hampering Ozil's chances of breaking back into the Arsenal teamCredit: Times Newspapers Ltd Ozil hasn't played for the Gunners since the 1-0 win over West Ham on March 7. The ex-Real Madrid star was left out of the Europa League squad earlier this month. Ozil is also set to be left off the 25-man Premier League group - meaning he will likely not play football again until January at the earliest.

    ARSENE WENGER said his relationship with Joe Mourinho is 'like Kindergarten' as their fallout continues. Wenger's autobiography, My Life in Red and White, was released this month, a little over two years since the 70-year-old left Arsenal after 22 years in charge. 2Arsene Wenger said his relationship with Joe Mourinho is 'like Kindergarten'Credit: REUTERS But the Gunners legend left out any inclusion of rival Mourinho because he wanted it to be a 'positive book’. The former Chelsea and Manchester United manager responded by insisting his omission in Wenger's memoirs was 'because he never beat me'. But Wenger hit back, as he told Canal+: "It doesn't bother me. It is permanent provocation. "I feel like I'm in kindergarten with him. But, that's part of his personality. "It's wrong, we beat him twice. We won, and there were also a lot of draws. And it is not 'you' who...

    Democrats on the Senate Judiciary are asking the Justice Department for answers over a 2006 anti-abortion newspaper ad that was left out of Judge Amy Coney Barrett's materials provided to the committee as part of her Supreme Court nomination.  The 10 Democrats on the panel sent a letter to Assistant Attorney General Beth Williams, saying that the absence of the ad in the materials given to the committee "raises concerns that the process of collecting materials responsive to the SJQ, like the nomination process itself, has been rushed, for no legitimate reason."  "We ask that you explain the omission, confirm whether any other materials have been omitted, and immediately provide those materials for the Committee’s review," they added in the letter, which was led by Sen.

    There are plenty of changes between HBO’s Game of Thrones series and George R.R. Martin’s original A Song of Ice and Fire books — at least the ones that have been released so far. But even with all the changes, Lady Stoneheart garnered so much fan attention and was talked up so relentlessly by book-readers that even the most casual Game of Thrones watcher had questions about whether or not she would appear. Since the revenant never actually made an appearance in the series, fans have always had a few outstanding questions about why she was cut. Thankfully, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have finally provided some answers. [Ed Note: This post contains spoilers for the entire Game of Thrones series.] The showrunners’ Lady Stoneheart info comes from the upcoming book “Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon,” James Hibbard’s behind-the-scenes look at the making of HBO’s Game of...
    Team Meghan and Harry are fired up. On Tuesday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Queen and Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall shared photos on social media to mark Prince Harry’s 36th birthday. All of the snaps featured the ginger-haired royal but not his much-maligned wife, Meghan. The omission had Meghan, 39, fans up in arms and they quickly voiced their disapproval in the comments section. “The shade of them using this pic rather than one including his wife ☕️,” wrote one person alongside a photo of William, 38, Harry and Kate, 38, taking part in a 2017 race, while another noted, “Interesting photo selection! No Meghan… ????” “There must have been hundreds of photos you could have picked, but you chose to post one of Harry, William and Kate. I’m sure not including Meghan wasn’t unintentional,” another person commented. The intriguing photo choice, which is sure...
    JACK GREALISH aimed a thinly veiled dig at Gareth Southgate as he was left out of the England squad. Aston Villa ace Grealish hoped to make the 24-man Three Lions party after saving his Midlands club from  relegation. 2Jack Grealish aimed a dig at Gareth Southgate after failing to make his latest England squadCredit: Getty Images - Getty But uncapped Grealish did not take it well, ‘liking’ a Twitter post comparing his stats to Leeds’ star Kalvin Phillips, who made the  squad despite no Prem experience. The ‘like’ was deleted but Grealish had made his point. Boss Southgate left him out  due to the  sensational  form of Manchester United’s 18-year-old Mason Greenwood. Southgate said: “With Jack, the simple answer is Mason Greenwood. “He’s competing with Greenwood, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Raheem Sterling.” 2 Yet it is clear Southgate does not fancy Grealish, 24, seeing him only as an attacker, not a...
    Conservative talk show radio host Rush Limbaugh noted on Tuesday that during the first night of Democratic National Convention, there was not one mention of the dozens of violent riots that have popped up in blue cities across the nation, which Limbaugh argued reveals that the Democrat Party “aligns” themselves with far-Left radical activist groups Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Referencing former first lady Michelle Obama’s Monday night speech at the convention that emphasized “empathy,” the conservative host questioned why the riots were not addressed. “Ask African-Americans how much the Democrats have cared about ’em in 50 years, how much it’s meant to their lives improving. Answer is zip, zero, nada,” the host said. “But if you want to give a speech and you want to talk about empathy, how in the world do you not mention the victims of the riots and the violent criminals? How in the world, if you’re...
    The Angel Guardian Home may soon have its very own guardian angel; the adjacent convent building, however, doesn’t appear to be as lucky. Only the main structure has been recommended by the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission for designation as a landmark, which would protect it from demolition or out-of-character alterations. Numerous members of the public who spoke at Tuesday’s public hearing on the issue bemoaned the fact that, so far, the Commission has overlooked the smaller building, which is likely to be demolished unless it receives the same protections. In 2018, the Sisters of Mercy received $37.5 million from developer Scott Barone for the property, which occupies the square block bounded by 12th and 13th avenues, and 63rd and 64th streets in Dyker Heights. Barone subsequently sold the 13th Avenue side of the property to the city’s School Construction Authority, which will be building a school on the site, and...
    The coverage of Attorney General William Barr's Tuesday hearing before the House Judiciary Committee further proved that biased actors in the mainstream media are mirroring the attitude and actions of anti-Trump Democratic lawmakers, The Hill's Joe Concha said Wednesday. In an interview on "Fox & Friends," the media reporter agreed that Barr seemed like a "bystander" during portions of the hearing due to Democrats' aggressive demeanor. WASHINGTON POST, PBS REPORTERS ACCUSED OF 'CHEERLEADING' FOR DEMS DURING BARR HEARING "And look, the coverage is much like the way Democrats treated Barr, which is to take the exact opposite position of the president in terms of the protests, for instance, right?" he asked. Concha said that the liberal media is trying to cover for Democrats amid nationwide demonstrations, noting that "Bill Barr was right" to point out that they "are violent." According to the New York Post, rioters in New York City have caused nearly $1 million in damages to New York Police Department (NYPD) vehicles since...
