Anderson Cooper claimed that after Trump’s rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol, they’re going to go dine at Olive Garden to celebrate. The eatery’s fans are now defending the restaurant.
A lot of folks love the Olive Garden. But apparently CNN’s Anderson Cooper thinks the restaurant chain might be a favorite of the rioters from Donald Trump‘s rally who stormed the U.S. Capitol building, occupying offices and terrorizing members of Congress who were evacuated for their own protection. When discussing the D.C. chaos on Jan. 6, Cooper described how after seditiously attempting to pillage the Capitol, the MAGA terrorists were going to go off and eat dinner at an Olive Garden while “high fiving each other.”

“Look at them, they’re high-fiving each other for this deplorable display of completely unpatriotic, completely against law and order, completely unconstitutional behavior, it’s stunning. And they’re going to go back to the Olive Garden and to the Holiday Inn they’re staying at, or the Garden Marriott, and they’re going to have some drinks and talk about the great day they had in Washington. They stood up for nothing other than mayhem,” Cooper explained over video of Trump supporters waving flags and wearing gear with his name on it while occupying the steps of the Capitol building.
As a result ,”Olive Garden” began trending on Twitter, and with it, plenty of folks who love the Italian chain yet aren’t in favor of destroying democracy. The protesters were livid that Vice President Mike Pence said he did not have the power to throw out the electoral votes that would deny Democrat Joe Biden the presidency that he legitimately won. As that was happening, Trump told supporters at a rally near the White house, “If Mike Pence does the right thing we win the election.” When Pence sided with democracy, Trump’s furious MAGA supporters then marched to the Capitol where chaos broke loose.
Countless memes popped up on Twitter showing people looting items from the Capitol building with Olive Garden jokes. One popular meme showed a man in a Trump hat walking away with a congressional microphone podium in the Rotunda with a big smile on his face:

Another user pointed out how wild it was to see “Olive Garden” trending among the dramatic moments of the day:
Sorry but seeing Olive Garden trending amongst everything else is some next level comedic timing pic.twitter.com/nIbBafgOZf

Others tweeted out how the Olive Garden didn’t deserve to be brought up into the day’s chaotic activity. @AngryBlackLady
noted, “All Olive Garden ever wanted to do was provide unlimited salad and breadsticks to the people. They don’t deserve to be dragged like this,” while @rosedommu defended the chain, tweeting, “Anderson Cooper just said on CNN that the terrorists are gonna go to Olive Garden after they leave the capitol…not on my watch.” User @shaynizzl tweeted, “there is a literal coup happening and somehow y’all have still found the time to drag Olive Garden.” So far the Italian restaurant chain has not responded via Twitter to Anderson’s diss about the Trump rioters heading to celebrate at their restaurants.
Christie Brinkley, 66, Goes ‘Swimming In The Rain’ In Black Swimsuit On Turks & Caicos Vacation — Watch
Christie Brinkley is living her best life! The former model shared a clip of herself singing in the ocean, while rocking snorkeling gear.
Christie Brinkley has never looked happier! The 66-year-old took to Instagram on January 16 to share a clip of herself singing in the rain, offering her take on the classic 1952 Gene Kelly song. “I’m Swimming in the Rain,” she captioned the video adding, “[I] hope this gives you a laugh.” In the clip, Christie rocked a black one piece swimsuit, blue flippers, and snorkeling gear as she waded about in the crystal blue waters. The former Sports Illustrated covergirl is certainly living her best life while on vacation in Turks and Caicos.
“This made my day!!” one fan commented, while another wrote, “Fun and joyful!!! You are sunshine in the rain!!!” Of course, this wasn’t the first time Christie has proved she’s completely ageless. Most recently, she kicked off the new year with a gorgeous snap of herself posing beside the crystal blue ocean. “Cliffhanger,” she captioned her January 9 pic, in which she rocked an aqua blue bikini top and black, high-waisted bike shorts. Christie also stayed protected in a wide-brim straw hat, as she accessorized with a silver watch and a gold ring.
She doesn’t only look chic while relaxing on the beach, Christie also proved she can look glam while gardening. The former model posted a series of pics of herself on Instagram on January 11, which showed her watering some plants along the entrance to a seemingly private beach. She rocked a strapless red swimsuit, along with a large floral wrap which she wore as a skirt. The blonde beauty used the snap as an opportunity to discuss the state of America amid the Capitol riots on January 6. “It hurts my heart so much to hear all the terrible news,” she wrote in the photo’s caption. “We need to cultivate peace, calm and understanding. We need to grow love and mutual respect.” We can’t wait to see what Christie gets up to in 2021!
Lisa Rinna Fans Think She Looks Like A Kardashian With New Blonde Highlights Makeover
Lisa Rinna has debuted a new longer hairstyle and perfect makeup showing off her plump pout. Fans are remarking how the ‘RHOBH’ star looks like she could be a Kardashian sister.
Well hello Lisa Kardashian! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna is celebrating her new lipstick line, and released several glam photos of her wearing one of the products on her pillowy pout. In one snapshot she shared via Instagram on Jan. 15, fans said Lisa looked like she could be Kim Kardashian‘s twin! The 57-year-old ditched her iconic short shag for a long and perfectly styled hairpiece by celebrity wig and hair stylist Clyde Haygood, who just so happens to have worked on Kim’s tresses as well!
Lisa’s brunette locks featured blonde highlights, and the hair was pulled back with long extensions coming from a slight bouffant lift at the back of her head. The Bravo star’s skin looked extra bronzed in the photo, and she wore a rosy eye with super long and full lashes, perfectly contoured brows and dark liner that made her eyes look similar to the shape of Kim’s.
The mother of two’s famous oversized pout also resembled that of the SKIMS founder’s pillowy puckers. Lisa’s already large lips looked gorgeous in a shimmery pink shade from her new beauty line called “Rose All Day.” Add chunky hoop earrings and fans were doing a double take in the comments that Lisa bore such a striking resemblance the 40-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.
User @sanapapix commented, “Could pass for Kim K with this pic,” along with a hearts for eyes smiling emoji. @mettel74 told Lisa, “You look like Kim Kardashian…” to which @maryehorsman43 agreed, saying, “I said the same.” User @mellimoo21 marveled, “It is Kim Kardashian.” Fan @pamulafloyd told Lisa, “You have some @kimkardashian going on there.”
Other fans were completely wowed by Lisa’s long hairstyle, as she’s worn her short shag cut for nearly her entire career. Thus any time Lisa changes things up with her tresses, her IG followers notice. Fan @mez_mo_rizing told her “So love the hair on you…let your hair grow…it looks amazing on you,” while @alexeichamberland said, “Make this permanent.” User @dustin_barks commented, “Your hair is everything!!! Beautiful!” Fan @angela.marie.frangione gushed, “Wow you look like you went back in time! You look half your age! Beautiful!” This really is one of Lisa’s best looks, as her hair and makeup are absolute perfection.
‘WandaVision’ Recap: The Key ‘Ultron’ Connection You May Have Missed & What It Could Mean
‘WandaVision’ made its grand debut on Jan. 15. Wanda and Vision seem to be living the perfect sitcom life, but nothing is what it seems. There was one particular moment that hints at trouble ahead.
The first two episodes of WandaVision launched on its premiere day, and the second episode began to set the stage for the unraveling of what’s really going on. Wanda and Vision are still living out their black and white sitcom life without a care in the world. Wanda goes to a get-together in honor of the upcoming talent show with the other ladies of the neighborhood, including Agnes and Geraldine (a.k.a. Monica Rambeau). Wanda also meets the leader of the pack, Dottie. After everyone leaves, Dottie tells Wanda that she’s “heard things” about Wanda and Vision.
Wanda is caught off guard and assures Dottie that she doesn’t mean anyone “any harm.” Dottie replies, “I don’t believe you.” Suddenly the radio turns on and someone calls to Wanda. “Can you read me?” the mystery man asks. Dottie asks Wanda who is on the radio before turning to Wanda and saying, “Who are you?”
The voice continues to call out to Wanda. “Who’s doing this to you, Wanda?” the man asks. Wanda is in complete shock. A few moments later, the radio and the glass in Dottie’s hand explodes. When Dottie starts bleeding, it’s in color.
The next scene is a commercial for a Strucker watch. A close-up of the watch is shown, and there are some very telling clues about what’s at the heart of this story. The watch bears the HYDRA symbol and “HYDRA” is written in plain sight. The Strucker watch is a clear nod to Wolfgang von Strucker, one of the leaders of HYDRA. HYDRA has been one of the MCU’s biggest threats since Captain America, and it appears HYDRA may be far from extinct.
Strucker, Wanda, and Wanda’s brother Pietro were first introduced in a credits scene following Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Strucker showed List where the Scepter was and introduced him to Wanda and Pietro, who were being held prisoner in separate cells. This led right to Avengers: Age of Ultron. Strucker was eventually arrested by the Avengers and later killed by Ultron.
The reasons behind Wanda’s alternate reality are not explained in the first two episodes. If HYDRA is making a comeback, then it will be met with full force by S.W.O.R.D., the subdivision of S.H.I.E.L.D. that stands for Sentient World Observation and Response Department. The S.W.O.R.D. symbol is seen on the toy helicopter Wanda found in her yard and on the back of the Beekeeper’s suit at the end of the second episode.
