Stephen Colbert confirms he’s returning to his Late Show office in New York City

After five months of filming episodes of his CBS late-night talk show Late Show from his own home, Stephen Colbert returned to the office on Monday.

The 56-year-old host took to Twitter on Sunday to reveal he’s heading back to the office, along with a photo of some sourdough bread loafs.

It was revealed last week that both Colbert’s Late Show and James Corden‘s The Late Late Show will be filming episodes in their studio homes this week.

‘Back to NYC offices tomorrow after five months. Looking forward to broadcasting again from the Greatest City on Earth,’ Colbert began.

‘And just in time (maybe way past time), I finally cracked that sourdough puzzle,’ he added, showcasing a photo of three sourdough bread loaves he baked.

As for Corden, he did not specify when he will return to his Los Angeles offices to film Late Late Show.

Production halted on Colbert’s Late Show on March 12, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the show returning on March 30 with a newly-titled show called A Late Show With Stephen At Home, a nod to his Twitter handle @StephenAtHome.

While all other late-night shows, and daytime programs as well, filming episodes from the host’s homes, Colbert and Corden, whose shows both air on CBS, will return to their studio homes, according to a Deadline report. 

No audience members will be in attendance for either Colbert or Corden’s shows, which comes after Jimmy Fallon was the first to return to The Tonight Show studio two weeks ago, while Conan O’Brien has filmed Conan from the Largo in Los Angeles.

For the past five months, Colbert has been filming episodes from his home in South Carolina, with the help of his wife Evelyn McGee.

The comedian also sent his first tweet in his return to the office on Monday, and he couldn’t resist throwing in a little office humor.

‘Tonight, after five months, I’m back in my office at the Ed Sullivan Building! Unrelated question: how long does desk drawer egg salad keep?’ he quipped.

Kathy Griffin tweets ‘it wasn’t me’ after shooting near White House during Trump press conference  

Kathy Griffin jokingly tweets ‘it wasn’t me’ after reported shooting near the White House during President Trump’s press conference

President Donald Trump was abruptly taken out of a press conference by security on Monday due to a reported shooting that took place near the White House. 

And Kathy Griffin, a notoriously outspoken critic of Trump, took to Twitter to jokingly assure her 2.1million followers that she had nothing to do with the incident.

‘It wasn’t me,’ tweeted the 59-year-old comedian, minutes after news of the shooting broke.

Though she did not directly mention the incident or tag Trump in her tweet, Griffin’s following knew exactly what she was referring to. 

Minutes after his impromptu evacuation, President Trump, 74, returned to the White House briefing room and revealed the details of the shooting to the press, as reported by CNN.

‘There was a shooting outside of the White House and it seems to be very well under control. I’d like to thank the Secret Service for doing their always quick and very effective work,’ he began.

When asked if the White House had been breached in anyway, the 45th president of the United States replied: ‘I don’t think the person breached anything. I don’t believe anything was breached. I asked that question.’

Trump said that he was ‘taken to the Oval Office’ after being evacuated and that the Secret Service made him ‘feel very safe.’ 

‘They just wanted me to step aside for a little while just to make sure that everything was clear outside,’ he told reporters.

Kathy Griffin has proven over the years that she is no fan of Donald Trump, whether it is clowning the former The Apprentice host on Twitter or posing with a severed  head made to look like him in 2017.

In a recent remote interview with Marco Eagle, the comedian admitted that her 2017 Trump severed head scandal marked the end of her ‘old life,’ in terms of ‘friends and work opportunities. 

But, despite her unrelenting criticism of Trump and other government officials, Kathy is not ‘anti-America.’

‘I love America. Let the newsmakers say [Trump’s] not qualified to have that job. But what I can say is that every time he walks out on camera, he honestly looks like he just left a spa. He looks like he gets five facials a day,’ she joked.

Jake Paul’s home raided by FBI for Arizona mall looting footage

FBI agents who raided YouTube star Jake Paul’s mansion were looking for video evidence of the Arizona mall looting he is linked to, a source close to the influencer told DailyMail.com.

SWAT teams descended on Paul’s $6.9 million Calabasas home and the Las Vegas mansion of his graffiti artist co-star Arman Izadi in a dramatic Wednesday dawn raid.

A source close to Izadi told DailyMail.com federal agents took computers and hard drives from the Vegas home and were looking for unreleased footage of Paul and Izadi at a mall looting in Scottsdale, Arizona in May.

The source also revealed that police searched other properties beyond the two mansions in the coordinated raid – though the FBI remained tight-lipped saying the case had been sealed.

Paul, 23, Izadi, 35, and a third YouTuber filmed themselves at a Scottsdale protest over the killing of George Floyd but were arrested and charged with trespassing and unlawful assembly after looters ransacked and vandalized the Scottsdale Fashion Square mall.

As dozens of SWAT officers in armored vehicles hit the influencers’ mansions around 6am Wednesday, Scottsdale Police Department announced the Arizona state charges against the three men had been temporarily dismissed while the case was handed over to federal investigators.

‘It seems they wanted to get their hands on technology to review any footage that may not have been released,’ the source told DailyMail.com. ‘That is what seems to be out of control. Why is it so aggressive for just that?

‘It was a shock to everyone… You just don’t see that every day, these huge SWAT teams.

‘Everybody there was detained while they secured the property.

‘They asked [Izadi] a lot of questions,’ the source added. ‘They were asking him things pertaining to why they were in Arizona.

‘We don’t fully understand how misdemeanor trespassing charges turned into a federal investigation.’

News choppers caught on camera federal officers carrying several rifles confiscated from Paul’s mansion during the Calabasas search, setting social media ablaze with speculation over the reason for the raid.

TIME OF JAKE PAUL’S ARREST AND RESULTING FBI RAID

May 30: Looting at the Scottsdale Fashion Square mall, Arizona

May 31: Paul tried to distance himself from the situation in a statement, saying he was in no way involved in any looting or vandalism

June 4: Scottsdale, Arizona authorities charged the 23-year-old internet star with criminal trespass and unlawful assembly – both misdemeanors 

August 5: Paul’s home in LA and Armani Izadi in Las Vegas are both raided by the FBI 

Charges are dropped against both men by Scottsdale police; they remain the subjects of a federal investigation

Echoing a statement released by Paul in June, the source insisted they were not involved in any looting.

‘This is definitely being trumped up,’ the friend of the YouTube stars said. ‘It was never anyone’s intention to go down there and loot. I know that Mr. Izadi and Jake didn’t loot anything. It’s hard to say what was going on with all of the people around them.

‘There’s plenty of footage out there showing there were ignorant people around them that were encouraging bad behavior. There were people who they knew and didn’t know who were doing things that weren’t intelligent.

‘But of course the only names getting dragged into the media are Jake’s and Izadi’s. That’s always the position. Jake’s insanely famous and Mr. Izadi’s a good friend.’

The FBI said there were no arrests during the searches, and Paul’s lawyer, Richard Schonfeld, said he was out of California at the time.

A staffer who helps run events at Izadi’s house, dubbed Graffiti Mansion, told Fox 5 Las Vegas that officers burst onto the property with flash bang grenades.

‘They got here about 6 am this morning. We opened the gate to let them come in. They woke the staff with a couple of flash bangs which was pretty exciting,’ Richard Ochoa told the TV station.

Izadi later posted on, saying: ‘A lot of people talking trash. A lot of people making up things online today. I’m not going to get into any details other than all they wanted to know about was Arizona.’

In a statement on Wednesday, the Phoenix FBI office said, ‘The FBI is investigating allegations of criminal acts surrounding the incident at Scottsdale Fashion Square in May 2020.

‘This morning the FBI executed federal search warrants in California and Las Vegas, Nevada in connection with this investigation. The search warrant affidavits are sealed and we are, therefore, prohibited from commenting further.’

Scottsdale Police said: ‘Misdemeanor charges for Jake Paul, Arman Izadi and Andrew Leon related to their involvement in the May 30, 2020 Scottsdale Fashion Square riots are being dismissed without prejudice today.

‘It is in the best interest of the community to dismiss misdemeanor charges without prejudice so that a federal criminal investigation can be completed. Scottsdale retains the option to refile charges depending on the outcome of the federal investigation.’

John McAfee claims he’s been arrested in Norway for wearing lacy THONG on his face instead of mask 

Tech tycoon John McAfee has apparently been arrested in Norway because he refused to put a medically-certified face covering over his thong mask. 

McAfee, who made millions with the anti-virus software bearing his name, took to Twitter on Monday morning to report that he had been detained by Norwegian authorities who weren’t impressed by the mask he made out of ladies underwear.

His wife, Janice McAfee, took over his Twitter page a few hours later and confirmed that he had been placed under arrest while she was merely detained. 

The couple also shared several photos showing off the offending mask – a black lace thong. 

‘I am insisting it is the safest available and I’m refusing to wear anything else – for my health’s sake,’ John McAfee, 74, declared.

McAfee first confirmed his detention in a tweet announcing that he would have to push back the meeting time for his group called the Red Scarf Society. 

‘Trivial issue but waiting for high level beaurocrats [sic] to arrive. Slow bastards, as you know,’ he wrote. 

Soon after he posted another tweet canceling the meeting, alongside a photo of himself laughing alongside a detention officer.  

Janice began tweeting from the account minutes later, writing: ‘I’ll manage John’s account until he escapes (usual method), bribes someone (very quick – might be out in a few hours), retains the right lawyer (will be a few days) or becomes warden of the jail, in which case we will have to force him out.’

She then shared a message of support for her husband and his choice of facial covering. 

‘His thong mask: It doesn’t recycle his exhaled carbon dioxide, like over the ear masks. (Breathing impaired people are exempt from wearing masks because masks impair respiration),’ she wrote.

‘Masks stop bacteria. Not viruses people! He was arrested for what he believes. Thank you my love.’

Janice said she had also refused to put a medically-certified mask over her thong mask, but authorities opted not to arrest her.

About five hours later Janice posted a video of herself in a waiting room at the detention center, where she had somehow managed to get her hands on a couple bottles of champagne. 

‘John is the only person I know that can get you champagne while being detained!’ she wrote. 

Soon after Janice offered another update in a Twitter video from the couple’s private plane as it took off for Munich, where they live.  

‘Hello everybody, I’m here on our private jet,’ she said with a wave. 

‘I received instructions from John through a private connection that he wanted me to go home and wait for his arrival. 

‘So, hopefully – you know him, he got this, so you’ll be hearing from him soon, in a few hours I’m sure.

‘In the meantime I’m headed home with our bodyguards and hopefully we’ll be hearing from him in a few hours. Take care!’

About five hours after McAfee announced his arrest, Janice offered an update in a Twitter video, saying that her husband had told her to take their private jet home to Munich

McAfee, who was born in 1945 at a US military base on British territory, has a long history of brushes with law enforcement in various countries. 

He made headlines in 2012 after authorities announced that he was wanted as a ‘person of interest’ in the murder of his neighbor in Belize.  

The eccentric millionaire was later tracked down in Guatemala, where he claimed he was seeking political asylum. He was subsequently arrested for entering the country illegally and was eventually deported back to the US. 

Officials in Belize never brought any charges against McAfee in the investigation into his neighbor’s murder.  

Last summer McAfee and his wife were arrested by police in the Dominican Republic who accused them of sailing into the island with a boat-load of firearms. 

He soon fled to Lithuania, where he shared a photo of himself hiding out in an ‘ultra-secure facility’. 

McAfee is currently seeking the Libertarian Party’s nomination for US president this fall – after another failed bid back in 2016.

 The rapper has been active on social media as she also defended Kylie’s surprise appearance in the WAP music video.

‘Why did I put Kylie on my music video? She treated my sister [Hennessy] and daughter [Kulture] so lovely at her kid [Stormi’s] bday party,’ wrote the 27-year-old rapper in a since deleted tweet.

She added that Kylie’s baby daddy Travis Scott, 29, and her husband Offset, 28, ‘are real close’ and Kylie’s mom Kris Jenner ‘[has] been giving [her] advice on certain things [she] ask for.’ 

Cardi, 27, and Megan, 25, sent fans into a meltdown Friday with the release of their collaboration, along with a music video in which they stunned in a number of barely-there outfits.

Cardi’s tweet was in reply to one fan who was bothered by the fact that Kylie ‘walked down the hall and opened a door’ in the video,’ while singer Normani, 24, performed a technical dance routine. 

‘If that’s not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most and white women do the bare minimum to get somewhere, I don’t know what is,’ concluded the fan, who insinuated that there was an underlying racial bias.
