Obama addresses 'radical Islamic terrorism' omission - Business Insider

President Barack Obama sparred with CNN host Jake Tapper on Wednesday night in a tense exchange over Obama's refusal to use the phrase "radical Islamic terrorism."

During a CNN town-hall event focusing on the US military, Gold Star mother Tina Houchins asked Obama why he wouldn't use the term.

Some critics, including Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, have argued that Obama's insistence not to use the term to refer to terrorist attacks committed in the name of groups like the Islamic State or Al Qaeda shows that he isn't well-equipped to fight terrorism.

Donald Trump threatens to 'tell the real story' about Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski

Donald Trump took his escalating feud with "Morning Joe" to a new level on Monday, threatening to "tell the real story" of the relationship between hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.

In a series of tweets on Monday, the Republican presidential nominee slammed the MSNBC hosts over their criticism of his brash campaign style.

Trump claimed that he would share information about the personal relationship between the two hosts — the subject of much speculation.

"Tried watching low-rated @Morning_Joe this morning, unwatchable! @morningmika is off the wall, a neurotic and not very bright mess!" Trump wrote.

'Game of Thrones' season 6 premiere recap: A whole new woman

Spoiler alert! The following contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season 6 episode 1, “The Red Woman.” To read our recap of last season’s finale, click here.

Nice to meet the real you, Melisandre.

Maybe it feels odd that a season premiere coming off of last season’s epic battles and assassinations (don’t worry, I’m going to talk about Jon Snow below) would end on an old, naked woman going to sleep. It’s such a quiet, reflective note on a show that often preempts the quiet for the bombastic.

But Game of Thrones has always been a show that thrived on subverting expectations and appearances and how a traditional story is supposed to go. Ned Stark was never the protagonist of this story. No one is safe in this world, not your heroes (like Robb) or your villains (like Joffrey). The undead can wage war and a shadow can kill a king. A young, powerful, confident woman can actually be an old, shriveled, sad magician who has lost her faith.

Courteney Cox Revealed Favorite "Friends" Moments

Courteney Cox and the rest of the Friends gang, except Matthew Perry, reunited recently for the special celebrating James Burrows' 1000th directed episode of television.

Fans of the show loved seeing Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow and Matt LeBlanc (Monica, Ross, Rachel, Phoebe and Joey) on the same couch after so many years of them getting on with their own seperate careers.

However, some might describe the "reunion" a bit underwhelming. The segment only lasted about nine minutes and not much can be squeezed from nine minutes.

They did manage to get Courteney Cox and the rest of the "friends" to reveal their favorite episodes from the show's 10 seasons.
