Like most of us, Anderson Cooper is fed up with Donald Trump.

After being subjected to Trump's ineffective role in the Oval Office and listening to his repetitive bellyaching over his witch hunt, Cooper focused on another of Trump's odd idiosyncrasies.

During his "The RidicuList" segment, the CNN host commented on Trump's "unusual tics" in his speaking style.

"I'm not talking about his screaming or cursing or mimicking a dog chocking to death," said Cooper.


Cooper mocked Trump by speaking in third person, which is something the president has a tendency of doing.

"What Anderson Cooper is talking is his habit of referring to himself in the third person."

You can watch the full segment in the YouTube clip, below.

Anderson Cooper: No president should speak like Elmo www.youtube.com

The program showed examples of the "the third-person-in-chief" speaking in his "bizarre vernacular," and said that the president is not supposed to talk like Elmo – the lovable red monster from Sesame Street who speaks in a high falsetto.

A clip of Elmo talking in the third person rounded out the segment. But Cooper pointed out that this is not a new affectation for Trump.

"Speaking in the third person was a habit for president Trump long before he moved into 1600 Sesame Street."

He referred to Trump's November 6, 2012, tweet as proof. The then-citizen Trump bragged about his number one show, The Apprentice and congratulated himself.


Even then, his manner of speech raised eyebrows.


I guess we missed an early warning.



Sesame Street fans want to keep politics out of their neighborhood.







Others reveled in another one of Cooper's savage burn against Trump.






Some users gave shade by referring to themselves in third person.



Elmo is now considering speech therapy.

Warning: There may be spoilers if you have not watched the series finale of Game of Thrones.

Emilia Clarke wanted to ensure Daenerys Targaryen would nail that war-mongering scene in the final episode of Game of Thrones.

The 32-year-old actress – who portrays Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, the Mother of Dragons, the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, the Breaker of Chains (that's one character) – did what was necessary to convincingly portray the chilling moment as she spoke in Dothraki and Valyrian.

Who was her inspiration? Dictators like Adolf Hitler, of course.

Speaking with Variety, Clarke said she had to learn many fake languages for her speeches, but Daenerys's final address for her troops was by far the most challenging.

Halsey has paid off a fan’s speeding ticket after the woman claimed she was driving too fast because she was enjoying her new single "Nightmare".

Twitter user Francesca claimed she was driving home from Pennsylvania State University when she was stopped for speeding.

“I got pulled over… for the first time ever and when asked why I was going 99 in a 70 I was dangerously close to admitting I was bangin out to Halsey’s new song Nightmare,” she said on social media.

“What’s your Venmo. I’ll pay your ticket. Drive safely please!” Halsey said on Twitter.

The singer’s music video for Nightmare, starring Debbie Harry and Cara Delevingne, was released on May 16, and has already reached over 15.5 million views on YouTube.

The original tweet was liked over 4,000 times, and caught the attention of Halsey herself, who transferred Francesca 250 US dollars for the ticket.


Needless to say the interaction has gotten quite a lot of attention. We all stan a queen that supports her fans as much as they support her.



Once the receipt had been paid, Francesca said she “will never forget your kindness and will continue blasting your music forever (just at a safer speed). I’ve never been more grateful or felt less deserving.”

A woman in New York has been praised by police for alerting them to a possible suicide attempt after she mistook a closed umbrella for a person wearing a "Handmaid's Tale" costume. Casey McCormick tweeted she thought she saw “a woman dressed as a handmaid about to jump from a building” and called 911.

The sighting turned out to be a table umbrella which, from a distance, looked much like a handmaid from the seminal Margaret Atwood novel "The Handmaid’s Tale".

The New York Police Department’s news account made it clear on Twitter that McCormick had done the right thing in alerting the authorities.

“Blessed be the umbrella. Thank you Casey and the @POPSUGAR team for alerting us to this crime, glad we could save the day,” they tweeted. “Jokes aside, if you’re ever hesitant about calling 911 – don’t be! We take all calls seriously, and worse case we get to go home with a great story.”

“Better safe than sorry!” one Twitter user replied.
