Lin-Manuel Miranda to do some supercalifragilistic rapping in Mary Poppins Returns

Lin-Manuel Miranda is good at everything, whether it’s writing songs for Moana, making a cameo on How I Met Your Mother, or getting into a duel with Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm, but the one thing everybody wants to see from him is—altogether now!—raps about history.

Hamilton creator and one of the last pure, good things left in this world Lin-Manuel Miranda stopped by The Late Show on Tuesday.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, Weird Al, and Jimmy Fallon geek out over "The Hamilton Polka" on The Tonight Show

For all their individual achievements and talents, there aren’t three bigger goofballs than Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jimmy Fallon, and “Weird Al” Yankovic, as shown on Friday’s Tonight Show.

Trump is just so damn sick of those whiny babies in Puerto Rico and their stupid humanitarian crisis

After a couple of days in which his responses to the crisis in Puerto Rico somehow managed to lurch themselves over the increasingly low bar labeled “presidential behavior,” Donald Trump apparently looked at the standards of basic human decency this morning and said, “Fuck it, let’s do limbo instead.” Taking time out…
