Президент США Дональд Трамп выступил с заявлением после того, как Палата представителей объявила ему импичмент.
В своем обращении он заявил, что осуждает насилие, произошедшее на прошлой неделе в Капитолии. Политик подчеркнул, что «жестокости не место» в США.
«Никто из моих истинных сторонников не может быть причастен к политическому насилию, ни один мой истинный сторонник не может поддерживать неуважение к правоохранительным органам или нашему великому американскому флагу, ни один из настоящих моих сторонников не может обижать своих сограждан», — сказал Трамп в видеообращении, которое было опубликовано в Twitter Белого дома.
Он заверил, что участвовавшие в нападении на Капитолий будут привлечены к ответственности.
Dancing On Ice's pro skater Yebin Mok has praised the NHS from her hospital bed.
The post comes after she was stabbed in the leg with an ice skate by her celebrity partner Graham Bell, 55, in a freak accident, leaving her tendons exposed.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Yebin, 34, shared a snap of herself and wrote: '#NHS appreciation post!!! Just massive thank you the staff of Watford hospital!
'Doctors, surgeons, nurses, scrub nurses, operating team, anesthetists, urgent care, recovery care. They were all so kind, so caring and looked after me so well on my overnight on Monday.
'They truly are heroes! So grateful for the care I received. And my leg is feeling so much better already thanks to them.
'Had a glimpse of what @drtom_onice and all of our dr. Family members and friends who works in NHS might go through in their day.
Yebin also posted a video and said: 'Just a little update. I had to come to Watford hospital and get my leg checked out.
'I went into ortho department and they took care of it for me, cleaned it out really good and stitched it up - and I just have to say what an amazing staff at Watford hospital.
'All the doctors, nurses, recovery care, anaesthiologists, surgeons, everyone... scrub nurses, everyone was so wonderful, they were amazing, true true NHS heroes.'
Yebin had said she's 'absolutely gutted' to be missing the first few weeks of the competition after a 'freak accident' in training.
The skater who was set to perform with Olympic skier Bell, lacerated her leg on Monday and is now undergoing physio after having an operation.
Taking to Instagram once again on Wednesday, hugely positive Yebin appeared to be in good spirits as she said she'll be cheering for her partner 'like a nervous mom at the side of the rink' when he competes with her replacement Karina Mantra.
Yebin penned: 'Absolutely gutted I won’t be able to skate on @dancingonice with Graham these couple of weeks.
'Graham and I had a freak accident during our practice on Monday where his blade went into my shin.
'Such unlucky timing but also counting my lucky stars as I cut through the muscles, and not nerves, bone, vessels or tendons! How I didn’t cut any of that they say is a miracle.'
The professional skater continued: 'Just insanely bummed about not being able to showcase Graham’s amazing journey together after such long hard months of training, but I know he’s in great hands with @karinamanta to step in until I can get back on the ice, and I know he’s a fighter so he will do all he can to do his very best!
'Continue to vote for @skigraham and Karina! I’ll just be a nervous mom at the side of the rink with multiple devices to vote for them!'
Turning her attentions to recovery, Yebin added: 'I’ll do my very best to heal and recover as quickly as I can with our physio, Sharon who is the best of the best, and if anyone can get me on the ice, it’s her!
'And I’ll be ready to skate with Graham if the fate allows it, so keep voting for him and here’s to hoping for the best on this unexpected bumpy road.'
Yebin's injury means Graham will make his skating debut next Sunday instead of this weekend with a new partner Karina, and comedian Rufus Hound's first performance will be brought forward to take his place.
Speaking after the injury, Graham told MailOnline: 'I fell when we were training on Monday and Yebin my pro-dance partner fell onto the back of my skate.
'She was cut quite badly on the shin and needed an operation to clean and stitch up the wound. She spent Monday night in Watford hospital and was released yesterday, luckily there was no nerve or tendon damage.
'She has been told two to four weeks before she can skate again, so Dancing on Ice have organised for a replacement, Karina Mantra, to come in for the first few performances.
'It's going to be really tough learning our routines again with someone new, but Yebin will be on hand to coach us both. It is now a massive incentive for me to stay in the show so that I can get Yebin back on the ice!'
Dancing On Ice hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield made the announcement during Wednesday's This Morning.
Holly said: 'This week Graham Bell and his partner Yebin had a freak accident which resulted in her having a laceration on her leg.'
The presenting duo added that they had a Zoom meeting with Yebin following the accident and got a glimpse of the nasty injury, which they couldn't show on air.
Holly confessed she couldn't even look at the injury, and squirmed as Phillip described the details.
He said: 'We had a Zoom meeting yesterday with the team and they showed us a picture that we can not show you on TV.
'Holly couldn't even look at it, she had to look away - and it was a very nasty stab wound from an ice blade. You could see the tendons, it's a very dangerous show.'
It was then announced that due to the accident Graham would not take part in the first live show, which was set to see the first six couples make their skating debut.
Instead Rufus and his professional partner Robin Johnstone will perform during the live launch show on Sunday, and Graham will skate the following week with Karina.
Phillip added that Yebin will be out of the show for 'quite a few weeks' while she recovers.
ITV later confirmed that Yebin received 'immediate medical attention' and is now recovering at home.
The news comes just days before the new series of Dancing On Ice is set to begin, with Jason Donavon, Joe Warren-Plant, Denise Van Outen, Rebekah Vardy and Lady Leshurr joining Rufus making their skating debut.
It also comes just hours after it was reported that bosses were tightening restrictions after learning five crew members had tested positive for COVID-19.
According to reports, show bosses are set to introduce stricter restrictions on set as a result of the outbreak so that the show can open as planned on Sunday night.
It was also claimed that crew members behind the scenes are concerned about others contracting COVID-19, but they are taking every precaution to ensure this doesn't happen.
A source speaking to The Sun claimed: 'More than five members of production are isolating because of Covid right now — it's become a nightmare.'
The insider went on to say that stars have been urged to remain cautious after the virus hit several members of production, as they added: 'They're now enforcing even stricter regulations.
'But while there are concerns about further people having to isolate, bosses are confident they have put all the precautions in place to safely be able to get the show on air.'
A spokesperson for the show told MailOnline: 'The welfare of everyone who works on Dancing On Ice is our first priority.
'We have had a robust set of measures in place ever since work on the series commenced in order to operate safely within Covid-19 guidelines and to ensure the wellbeing of everyone connected with the production.'
The new series of Dancing On Ice will see the judges protected by perspex screens and no studio audience amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Images of the ITV show's studios revealed large screens have been placed in front of the judges chairs to shield Ashley Banjo, John Barrowman, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.
For the first time in its history the studio at Bovingdon Airfield in Hertfordshire will have no audience, a move mirroring that of Strictly Come Dancing.
The skating celebrities will also watch each other perform from socially-distanced tables to keep everyone safe from COVID-19.
Blithe Spirit (12A)
Verdict: Shallow but fun
Ham On Rye
Verdict: Weird coming-of-age satire
When Noel Coward, whose play Blithe Spirit had been a smash hit in the West End, saw David Lean’s film version in 1945, he crushed Lean by saying — and I paraphrase only slightly — ‘You’ve just mucked up the best thing I ever wrote.’
Blithe Spirit is about spiritualism, about raising the dead, and I fear that were Coward’s own ghost to see Edward Hall’s remake, his silk cravat might levitate from his neck and tighten around Hall’s.
It is a jolly film and the Art Deco backdrops are truly ravishing, but it is played as broad knockabout comedy in a way that obliterates the cleverness of the original concept.
The charge against Lean, whose film starring Rex Harrison and Margaret Rutherford was subtle by comparison, was that he was a wholly serious man of cinema, lacking the deft comic touch required to do proper justice to Coward’s play.
Hall, by contrast, is a theatre director of considerable pedigree but he doesn’t quite work it out, either. On stage, Blithe Spirit is a farce — but a smart one.
Here, it more often feels like Rentaghost, the children’s TV series of blessed memory, for grown-ups.
Nevertheless, it couldn’t look more sumptuous and it stars Dame Judi Dench in the old Rutherford role as nutty medium Madame Arcati, so there are at least two sound reasons for seeing it.
Moreover, Dan Stevens, while no Rex Harrison, has successfully exorcised the flickering spirit of Downton Abbey’s dull old Matthew Crawley to become an adroit light comedian.
Now Hugh Grant has moved on to play murderous fiends, there’s a vacancy for a devilishly handsome, frightfully English matinee-idol type with sharp comic timing. Stevens might well be the anointed one.
Here he plays Charles Condomine, a novelist whose desperate dose of writer’s block has — nudge, nudge — also stopped him producing exclamation marks in the bedroom. Both his career and his five-year marriage to Ruth (Isla Fisher) are in a slump.
When he invites famous spiritualist Madame Arcati to preside over a séance at his home, he is looking only for literary inspiration.
Instead, she accidentally raises the ghost of his dead wife Elvira (Leslie Mann), who, jealous of his relationship with Ruth, begins to cause all sorts of mischief, not least by reminding Charles how much fun she was, and how sexy, before her untimely demise (breaking her neck, while riding in a point-to-point).
Wisely, Hall and his screen- writers have retained the story’s period setting, enabling the designers to have an Art Deco field day.
Less wisely, they do too much recycling of the one-note gag that only Charles can see Elvira, so when he talks to her he appears to be addressing someone else, leading to repeated misunderstandings.
Also, Fisher is miscast. Ruth is at least as pretty (and almost as flighty) as Elvira, which isn’t the idea at all.
But if you accept this version of Blithe Spirit as a shallow, rather hammy romp, then it will reward the investment of time, which after all is one commodity many of us currently have in abundance.
On which note, while Lean’s film three-quarters of a century ago was well received, on the whole, Coward wasn’t the only person who disliked it.
Others felt it was disrespectful to treat death with levity at a time of war. Maybe the same applies while a pandemic rages, but it could be just the sort of undemanding escapism you’re looking for.
There is nothing undemanding about Ham On Rye, which as it happens offers decidedly less ham than Blithe Spirit.
On the contrary, writer-director Tyler Taormina’s debut feature requires an awful lot of patient commitment on its audience’s part.
That said, Taormina gives a bold and ingenious twist to a cinematic staple: the U.S. coming-of-age movie.
You can think back to Richard Linklater’s Dazed And Confused (1993), or to George Lucas’s American Graffiti 20 years earlier, and imagine them in the hands of David Lynch or even Stanley Kubrick.
Alternatively, you can watch Ham On Rye for yourself and either fully embrace its faintly surreal air of menace or quickly recognise that it’s going nowhere, even at a concise 85 minutes.
It takes place on the night of a dance at a diner called Monty’s, a kind of prom marking the last day of high school, for which the unnamed town’s teenagers dress up and pair off in a ritual as rigid as in any Jane Austen adaptation. Insofar as the story has a centrepiece, that’s it . . . insofar as there’s any story at all.
Otherwise, the camera just flits from group to group, parodying more conventional coming-of-age movies and having a contemptuous cackle, too, at the clichés of middle-class American suburbia. It’s extremely strange but also strangely compelling.
Blithe Spirit is available on Sky Cinema from today. Ham On Rye is on the streaming platform Mubi.
How the FBI tried to kill King's dream
Verdict: A fine documentary
Verdict: Handsome by turgid
This fascinating documentary, releasing in the last full week of Donald Trump’s presidency, could hardly be more timely.
Martin Luther King’s 1963 ‘I have a dream’ speech to the adoring multitudes in Washington DC remains as revered in the history books as Trump’s 2021 version will, it seems, be reviled.
But two days after King’s address, an internal FBI memo called him ‘the most dangerous Negro in the future of this nation’.
J. Edgar Hoover, whose tenure as head of the FBI lasted, astonishingly, from 1924 to 1972, resolved to do all he could to undermine America’s best-known civil-rights leader.
At first that meant trying to tarnish him as a communist sympathiser, but when wiretaps and hotel bugs revealed that King was unfaithful to his wife Coretta, the focus shifted to portraying him as a ‘moral degenerate’.
The story of the FBI’s campaign to discredit King has been told before on screen, and a fair amount of this material will be familiar to anyone interested in U.S. politics of that period.
But enough of it is new, lifted from freshly declassified files, to make Sam Pollard’s film well worth watching.
It also features an interview with James Comey, the former FBI chief, dismissed by Trump in 2017.
Comey declares himself ‘sick to my stomach’ over revelations from ‘the darkest part of the bureau’s history’, which include details of a letter sent to King, clearly from someone at the FBI purporting to be a well-wisher, in which he was invited to ‘do the right thing’.
The letter arrived with a tape recording of King allegedly having sex with other women. ‘The right thing’ to do, it was implied, was to kill himself — although soon enough an assassin’s bullet did the job anyway.
n FROM the past to the future, Archive is a good-looking but rather turgid sci-fi thriller, a first-time feature from British writer-director Gavin Rothery.
Theo James stars as a lonely American scientist in a remote Japanese base who is trying to bring his dead wife (Stacy Martin) back to life in robot form.
Alex Garland’s 2014 film Ex Machina covered strikingly similar territory much more grippingly.
MLK/FBI is available on digital download now, Archive from Monday.
Jeffree Star has made it clear that he has nothing to do with Kanye West after ridiculous rumors about the pair circulated on social media last week.
But that doesn't mean the makeup guru isn't getting attention from the Yeezus artist's rap peers.
Though Jeffree, 35, laughed off the lurid lies about West, 43, once more on Twitter Wednesday, he revealed how a 'wild' amount of other rappers have slid into his DMs.
'I'm definitely NOT sleeping with Kanye,' he reiterated. 'But the amount of rappers in my DM's is wilddddd b****.'
Then Star said he was off, adding: 'Time to make a hit song in bed.'
Last week rumors that the husband of Kim Kardashian was sleeping with the veteran social media personality emerged after a TikToker said she had info about West and his relationship with a 'very famous male beauty guru.'
Neither Jeffree nor any other makeup pros were mentioned.
Star quickly set the record straight, taking to his beloved YouTube last Thursday to call the unfounded gossip 'weird' and 'stupid' while adding that the pair 'never hung out.'
In the clip, titled Addressing The Kanye Situation, the cosmetics guru said: 'I'm single ... I'm not sleeping with anyone.'
'This is so weird … this is so stupid. Let me just say this one time … I like very tall men.'
Star continued: 'Me and Kanye have never hung out, and this whole thing is really funny. I get why people are really laughing about this. In an old song of mine from 2009 called B**** Please, I say a line about Kanye.
'But it was very like Eminem. I mentioned like 50 celebrities.'
The makeup artist captioned the clip, 'Hi 2021, let’s relax. Addressing this Kanye West and Jeffree Star situation and the truth about why I moved to the state of Wyoming.'
A source close to the Kardashian family said to E! News that 'there is absolutely no truth to Jeffree and Kanye rumors.'
Still, Star had a little fun with the fiction taking to Instagram last weekend to share an ultra-glam selfie which he captioned: 'Ready for Sunday Service.'
Meanwhile, Kanye's relationship with Kim is still said to be on the rocks, with many insiders claiming divorce is imminent.
A family insider for the weekly said: 'Kim and Kanye's marriage is beyond repair.
'Kim is over Kanye's chaos, and at this point she just wants to focus on the kids and her own life.'
Kim and Kanye married in Florence, Italy, back in May 2014 and share daughters North, seven, Chicago, two, and sons Saint five, and Psalm, one.
The divorce reports follow a rocky year which saw the couple pictured in tearful 'crisis talks' after the rapper's series of explosive Twitter posts in the grips of a bipolar episode during a bizarre presidential run.
A source for People said: 'If I had to say the final straw, I believe it was a combination of the Presidential run and his Twitter rants.
'It created havoc at home. And though Kim is well aware of his issues, and tried to help him, she realized it was futile.'
