Badaki, who wrote the short, launched the In…

German newspaper Die Welt took a swipe at Mexico today in the name of World Cup soccer, publishing a somewhat inflammatory headline about what Germany would do to them on the pitch by alluding to US President Donald Trump’s plans for a barrier on the border.
By hinting at erecting a wall against Mexican soccer’s advance, perhaps the Die Welt editors forgot the not-so-small matter of the Berlin Wall and the pain it caused their own country. Maybe it was intended to fire up…

The 108th celebration of Father’s Day arrived today, and Hollywood figures (not to mention TV shows) were among those honoring dear old Dad with remembrances, brunch, electronics, ugly ties and some good scotch. A waggish Mark Hamill (who tweeted a pic of Darth Vader’s helmet), Incredibles 2 director Brad Bird and Gwyneth Paltrow (progressively nodding to both ex Chris Martin and current partner Brad Falchuk) were among those socializing about Dad.
The ersatz holiday…
