Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, isn't about to turn the other cheek when it comes to sticking by her father.


On Sunday, actor Christian Bale didn't hold back his feelings about Dick Cheney as he accepted the Golden Globe award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture โ€“ Musical or Comedy. Bale won for his portrayal of the divisive politician in the film Vice.

In his acceptance speech, the actor joked that he got the part because of his resemblance to Cheney, saying:

"He [director Adam McKay] said, 'I have to find somebody that can be absolutely charisma free and reviled by everybody, so we wanted Christian Bale.'"

Earlier, Bale shared a warning his wife gave him about speeches, saying "less is more".

He told the audience:

"She knows the dumb crap that can come out of my mouth at times. I can sink and ruin a perfectly good movie and so-so career in one speech. So thank you for that advice, my love."

Clearly, though, he didn't listen.

Bale roasted Dick Cheney and took down Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in one fell swoop.

"For all the competition, I will be cornering the market on charisma-free assholes. What do you think, Mitch McConnell next? That could be good, couldn't it? Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration."

You can watch Bale's speech below.

The audience seemed entertained, if slightly nervous, about where this was going. Liz Cheney, however, was not the least bit amused.

A short time after Bale's speech, she tweeted this:

Twitter is sitting back like:

Some felt that if it fits...




Bale might not be a saint but...



And how does Satan feel about this comparison?


There must be some middle ground?

Now that's how a civilized society works out its differences: compromise.

Times change, and if you don't change with them you're likely to get left behind. That simple piece of wisdom applies to pretty much everything - up to and including the job market. It seems like a lot of older didn't get that memo, though.

Reddit user u/GeekyKirby wanted to get something for their boyfriend for his birthday, but he said not to get him anything because it is so close to Christmas, so they decided it was time to get creative.

When asked what they bought him, u/GeekyKirby replied:

I pre-ordered him a game [Kingdom Hearts III], and bought him a shirt and a book he wanted :) ...I also filled up his living room floor with balloons...

It seems minor mischief is a common theme in their relationship:

Thank you. :) At this point, I can't really surprise my boyfriend anymore. And I try lol. Like the time I secretly put googly eyes on everything in his fridge...

Oh, and they made him this Pikachu cake. You know, nbd.

Users were impressed by u/GeekyKirby's piping skills. Also, the hate for fondant icing is real!

Nicely done and without fondant! r/FondantHate - Patiod

Making something for someone is a great way to show them you love them.

The best birthday present I ever got was from a girl who baked me a cake secretly. So thanks for doing that for him, I know I'd feel great about it. - Levitr0n

The fact that Surprised Pikachu is still around in 2019 really speaks to its universal appeal and ease of use. People will surely keep coming up with inventive ways to use the meme.

If there's one thing Christian Bale is known for, aside from a very gravely Batman voice, it's the physical transformations he undergoes for his roles. The actor is known to yo-yo his weight from role to role, in order to better portray his characters.

Now, however, the actor is considering calling it quits on the dangerous transformations. In an interview with The Sunday Times, the actor described his process with playing Dick Cheney in the new film Vice.

Not many people know what it's like to get married that young, but Reese got real about what it was like.
