Congressman John Lewis crowd surfs on ‘The Late Show

Congressman John Lewis is a civil rights icon who isn’t afraid to get close to the people. We already knew this about him, but Lewis really showed it Wednesday when he ended his appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” by crowd surfing.

“You want to crowd surf?” Colbert asked, to which Lewis hopped up and danced his way over to the audience. The 76-year-old politician, well known for his activism in the civil rights movement, did a little practicing before being hoisted into the crowd and passed overhead from person to person.

The stunt closed out the show. Lewis was there to promote the third installment of his graphic novel “March,” a series about his remarkable place in history. He also discussed June’s sit-in to protest a lack of action on gun control, how he met Dr. Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks, and NFL player Colin Kaepernick’s recent refusal to stand during the national anthem. “This young man, this football player, is acting according to the dictates of his conscience,” Lew

Did Rihanna Get a Tattoo for Drake?

Did Rihanna Get a Tattoo for Drake?

Rihanna will probably never tattoo a man’s name on her body, but new reports are suggesting she did the next best thing to show her affection for her new boo Drake. RiRi got a tattoo while in Miami to commemorate her and Drake’s relationship.

The “Work”singer got inked Wednesday (Aug. 31) with a shark on the front side of her ankle. The shark tattoo is reportedly meant to symbolize an aquarium date the two stars went on earlier this month. Drake rented out Ripley’s Aquarium of Canadain Toronto for an intimate date and gifted Rih a stuffed shark that night. Check out the stealthy pic from the date that Drizzy posted on Instagram earlier this week below.

The tatted-up island girl is no stranger to getting spontaneous ink and the new addition was done by famed tattoo artist Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy. As far as hip-hop couples go, Drake and Rihanna have been dominating headlines as of late.

This past Sunday at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, Drake presented his girl with the night’s top honor, the Video Vanguard Award and professed his love in the process, saying he’s been in love with her since he was 22 years old. The two have been spotted on dates together ever since and just last night (Aug. 31), they kissed onstage during RiRi’s guest performance at Drake’s Summer Sixteen tour in Miami, confirming their long-speculated romance.

Mexican president disputes Trump over border wall payment discussion

Mexican president disputes Trump over border wall payment discussion

Donald Trump flew into a nation he has constantly berated during his campaign to meet President Enrique Peña Nieto and said they discussed a wall Trump has vowed to build on the US southern border, but not his demand that Mexico pay for it — an assertion the Mexican president later disputed. “Who pays for the wall? We didn’t discuss,” Trump had said when asked by a reporter during a news conference following their meeting in Mexico City. “We did discuss the wall. We didn’t discuss payment of the wall. That’ll be for a later date.” But Peña Nieto later claimed the two had discussed the wall and who would pay for it — and he had “made it clear” to Trump it wouldn’t be Mexico. “At the start of the conversation with Donald Trump, I made it clear that Mexico will not pay for the wall,” Peña Nieto tweeted, after their meeting Wednesday.

He added that his conversation with the Republican nominee then moved on to other topics in a respectful fashion. Jason Miller, Trump’s senior communications adviser, called the meeting “the first part of the discussion and a relationship builder” between the two men, after Peña Nieto tweeted. “It was not a negotiation, and that would have been inappropriate. It is unsurprising that they hold two different views on this issue, and we look forward to continuing the conversation,” he said in a statement. In subsequent interviews in Mexico, Peña Nieto reiterated his version of events.

He told CNN affiliate Televisa in an interview late Wednesday some of the positions Trump has taken “are a threat to Mexico.” He also told the outlet he was very clear with Trump about the subject of a wall at the border and insisted Mexico would not pay for it and he made Trump aware that the people of Mexico had been “very insulted.” Peña Nieto, speaking alongside Trump during their joint appearance, twice stressed the “responsibility” he has to defend Mexican people around the world and said Trump has made “assertions that regrettably had hurt and have affected Mexicans.” “The Mexican people have felt hurt by the comments that have been made. But I am sure that his genuine interest is to build a relationship that will give both of our society’s better welfare,” Peña Nieto said. Trump apparently left his tough deal-making persona at home as he received a presidential-style news conference on foreign soil while on a high-risk trip to Mexico on Wednesday. The visit appeared to be an attempt to bolster Trump’s credentials as a potential world leader, following searing attacks on his temperament by his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. The spur-of-the-moment trip also came hours before Trump was due to deliver a speech in Arizona meant to clarify his murky immigration policy amid signs he is softening his prior promise to deport 11 million undocumented migrants.
