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.
Suri Cruise Sports Long Hair While Posing With Flowers & Goofing Off With Friends On 15th Birthday
Suri Cruise looked super sweet while enjoying her 15th birthday in the Big Apple! The teenager showed off her long hair and posed with some flowers as her friend snapped some pics!
Suri Cruise is another year older! The teenage daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise turned 15 years old on April 18, and she looked like she had a total blast on her big day. The newly minted 15-year-old spent her birthday out and about in New York City and was spotted having some low-key birthday fun. Suri and a few of her pals were seen snapping some photos together while posing with a pretty bouquet of pink and white carnations.
The birthday girl also showed off her long, brunette ‘do, and looked like the spitting image of her famous mom, 42. Naturally, Suri followed the necessary safety precautions while celebrating her birthday amid the COVID-19 pandemic. She and her friends wore protective face masks while having fun in the Big Apple. The teens only removed their face masks while smiling for a quick photo, or enjoying some delicious ice cream!
Despite her birthday falling during the middle of a pandemic, Suri truly showed the she was enjoying her day like so many around the world who celebrated their special days during COVID-19, as well. Suri’s mom, Katie, made sure to celebrate her daughter’s birthday by taking to Instagram and sharing a carousel of photos to her social media account. Far more precious than the intimate pics of Suri and her mom, however, was the sweet caption Katie wrote and dedicated to her teen.
“Happy 15th Birthday Sweetheart! I love you,” Katie wrote, adding a string of exclamation points and a number of emojis. “I can’t believe you are already 15!” Katie concluded the post. It’s hard to believe that Suri is already 15 years old. After all, it doesn’t seem like that long ago that she was just a tiny tot being photographed while out with her famous parents.
Over the course of the last few years, though, Suri’s adoring mom has made a concerted effort to offer her daughter as normal an upbringing as possible. Suri’s bond with her mom is so incredibly strong and it’s amazing to see the teen grow up to be her Katie’s mini-me. Fans cannot wait to see what the future holds for the teenager!
Happy 42nd Birthday, Kourtney Kardashian: Look Back At Her Hottest Photos Of All-Time
In honor of Kourtney Kardashian’s 42nd birthday, we’re looking back at some of her hottest outfits ever!
Kourtney Kardashian is celebrating another trip around the sun on April 18! The reality star turns 42 this year, and she has many reasons to celebrate. For the big day, we’re taking a trip down memory lane and looking back at some of the sexiest outfits that Kourtney has ever worn. From little black dresses to short shorts and more, Kourtney definitely knows how to dress to impress.
Black Leather Dress
In December 2019, Kourtney attended the Dior Men’s Fashion Show in Miami. She wore a black leather dress with thin straps, paired with strappy, open-toed heels. Although the dress reached down to Kourt’s knees, it provided a sexy, dominatrix style for her night out. She wore her hair in wet curls, with minimal jewelry and subtle makeup to complete the edgy look.
Purple Slip Dress
When it comes to mini dresses, Kourtney is definitely a pro. She’s even mastered the art of wearing lingerie as clothing! In June 2019, Kourtney enjoyed a night out with some friends, and she wore a purple slip dress for the occasion. The ensemble featured lace detailing on the edges, and could easily be doubled as a nightgown. However, Kourt dressed it up with some heels and it was the perfect mini for a night on the town!
High Slit Dress
Another one of Kourt’s sexiest looks was worn in Feb. 2019. Kourtney attended the amfAR Gala with sister Kim Kardashian and looked absolutely stunning. She rocked a black Versace dress featuring a double scoop neckline and a sexy thigh-high slit. The eldest KarJenner paired her look with pointed toe stilettos and styled her hair into a dramatic high ponytail.
These are just a few of Kourtney’s best looks, though. She’s one of the most fashion-forward celebs we know, so of course there are plenty of other outfits to admire. Luckily, we gathered some of her sexiest ensembles of all-time and put them in the gallery above for your viewing pleasure. Happy clicking – and happy birthday, Kourtney!
