Vietnam is extremely interested in President Obama

8:43 AMI’m still bummed that ABC’s Nashville is coming to a close. Watching tonight is going to feel like being at a wake.

Bill Cosby is going on trial. In Pennsylvania to be exact. After District Judge Elizabeth McHugh made the ruling about the case that first got started 12 years ago, more details of a 2005 deposition became available, and the details were sordid to say the least. The comedian admitted to assaulting Andrea Constand, then apologizing to her family and offering to pay for her graduate school. Sometimes I wonder if Hannibal Buress, an extremely talented and brilliant comic, will ever outlive being the man who brought down Bill Cosby. Certainly hope so. ABC’s Luchina Fisher and Michael Rothman report.

President Barack Obama’s trip to Vietnam has gone swimmingly. First, he announced an end to a trade embargo with the nation we were once at war with. Then, he held a town hall discussion in Ho Chi Minh City that was tremendous. People asked him about smoking weed, which is hilarious. He also fielded questions about his future, which coincidentally will most immediately play out in Washington, D.C. For those of you there, get ready for that. Most importantly though, the president found some time to dine with Anthony Bourdain, something that was probably on both of their bucket lists. Arlette Saenz and Kelly McCarthy have the details.

 

Speaking of the president, remember Jeremiah Wright, the fiery preacher who Obama once held his church home with? People thought that a black man whose pastor was anything short of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. would be doomed at the polls, lest America wasn’t ready to hand over the nation to someone it thought hated white people. Alas, that didn’t happen and Obama won with ease. The Undefeated’s Michael Fletcher sat down with the crew at FiveThirtyEight to explain exactly how that whole episode went down.

Seattle still hasn’t gotten over it. Every time the Oklahoma City Thunder start to go far in the playoffs, we’re forced to remember that the team was once the SuperSonics. It’s understandable. The Sonics were a great franchise and to watch a bunch of people in the American heartland rooting for what could have been yours must be tough. Of course, now that Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant are one step closer to the NBA Finals, it stings a bit more. Some players from the Pacific Northwest took to Twitter last night to talk about it.

Nas’ latest movie

is a tale of Cleveland skaters trying to make it

8:43 AMI’m still bummed that ABC’s Nashville is coming to a close. Watching tonight is going to feel like being at a wake.

Bill Cosby is going on trial. In Pennsylvania to be exact. After District Judge Elizabeth McHugh made the ruling about the case that first got started 12 years ago, more details of a 2005 deposition became available, and the details were sordid to say the least. The comedian admitted to assaulting Andrea Constand, then apologizing to her family and offering to pay for her graduate school. Sometimes I wonder if Hannibal Buress, an extremely talented and brilliant comic, will ever outlive being the man who brought down Bill Cosby. Certainly hope so. ABC’s Luchina Fisher and Michael Rothman report.

President Barack Obama’s trip to Vietnam has gone swimmingly. First, he announced an end to a trade embargo with the nation we were once at war with. Then, he held a town hall discussion in Ho Chi Minh City that was tremendous. People asked him about smoking weed, which is hilarious. He also fielded questions about his future, which coincidentally will most immediately play out in Washington, D.C. For those of you there, get ready for that. Most importantly though, the president found some time to dine with Anthony Bourdain, something that was probably on both of their bucket lists. Arlette Saenz and Kelly McCarthy have the details.

 

Speaking of the president, remember Jeremiah Wright, the fiery preacher who Obama once held his church home with? People thought that a black man whose pastor was anything short of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. would be doomed at the polls, lest America wasn’t ready to hand over the nation to someone it thought hated white people. Alas, that didn’t happen and Obama won with ease. The Undefeated’s Michael Fletcher sat down with the crew at FiveThirtyEight to explain exactly how that whole episode went down.

Seattle still hasn’t gotten over it. Every time the Oklahoma City Thunder start to go far in the playoffs, we’re forced to remember that the team was once the SuperSonics. It’s understandable. The Sonics were a great franchise and to watch a bunch of people in the American heartland rooting for what could have been yours must be tough. Of course, now that Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant are one step closer to the NBA Finals, it stings a bit more. Some players from the Pacific Northwest took to Twitter last night to talk about it.

You know you’re getting older when …

you realize Fresh Prince’s final episode was 20 years ago

The Undefeated

3:33 PM

Accept it. You’re old. Twenty years ago today, Hillary and Ashley were moving to New York. Carlton was moving east as well to start school at his father’s alma mater, Princeton. Uncle Phil, Aunt Viv and Nicky headed east to be closer to the rest of the family. Geoffrey, everyone’s favorite butler, gladly accepted his one-way ticket back to London.

But Will was still unsure what direction his life was headed in.

If anyone’s been living under a rock the past quarter century and doesn’t recognize the names, Friday marked the 20-year anniversary of the series finale of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Debates have raged for years about the two Aunt Vivs, the best episode or funniest character, but it’s impossible to deny the show’s legacy and staying power.

For what it’s worth, too, Will figured out life pretty quickly after everyone moved out. Less than two months later, he stumbled upon an acting gig in some movie called Independence Day. Sources say it performed marginally decent at the box office.

Most importantly though, the president found some time to dine with Anthony Bourdain, something that was probably on both of their bucket lists. Arlette Saenz and Kelly McCarthy have the details.

 

Speaking of the president, remember Jeremiah Wright, the fiery preacher who Obama once held his church home with? People thought that a black man whose pastor was anything short of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. would be doomed at the polls, lest America wasn’t ready to hand over the nation to someone it thought hated white people. Alas, that didn’t happen and Obama won with ease. The Undefeated’s Michael Fletcher sat down with the crew at FiveThirtyEight to explain exactly how that whole episode went down.

Seattle still hasn’t gotten over it. Every time the Oklahoma City Thunder start to go far in the playoffs, we’re forced to remember that the team was once the SuperSonics. It’s understandable. The Sonics were a great franchise and to watch a bunch of people in the American heartland rooting for what could have been yours must be tough. Of course, now that Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant are one step closer to the NBA Finals, it stings a bit more. Some players from the Pacific Northwest took to Twitter last night to talk about it.

Coffee Break: If someone put Gary Clark Jr., Fantastic Negrito, Benjamin Booker, Leon Bridges, Gallant and Jonny P on one festival bill, I’d pay $1,000 to go see it. And if you don’t know who that last guy is, you’ll want to. The New York City native who now lives in Nashville recently sat down for an interview and he’s got new music coming out this fall.

Snack Time: As far as television shows about slavery, WGN’s Underground is up there on the list of the best. Listen to production designer Meghan C. Rogers discuss what it was like to create sets for the antebellum period.

Dessert: Jay Z has showed up on the mic again. You can be the judge of whether or not that was a good idea.

8:43 AMI’m still bummed that ABC’s Nashville is coming to a close. Watching tonight is going to feel like being at a wake.

Bill Cosby is going on trial. In Pennsylvania to be exact. After District Judge Elizabeth McHugh made the ruling about the case that first got started 12 years ago, more details of a 2005 deposition became available, and the details were sordid to say the least. The comedian admitted to assaulting Andrea Constand, then apologizing to her family and offering to pay for her graduate school. Sometimes I wonder if Hannibal Buress, an extremely talented and brilliant comic, will ever outlive being the man who brought down Bill Cosby. Certainly hope so. ABC’s Luchina Fisher and Michael Rothman report.

President Barack Obama’s trip to Vietnam has gone swimmingly. First, he announced an end to a trade embargo with the nation we were once at war with. Then, he held a town hall discussion in Ho Chi Minh City that was tremendous. People asked him about smoking weed, which is hilarious. He also fielded questions about his future, which coincidentally will most immediately play out in Washington, D.C. For those of you there, get ready for that.
