#LAUGH-IN: Donald Trump says the UN General Assembly was laughing with him, not at him.

#SENATE COMMITTEE: Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford claims that he laughed as he allegedly assaulted her at a party in 1982. Kavanaugh later vigorously denied all of her claims.


Fota Wildlife Park has announced the birth of an infant agile gibbon to parents 18-year-old Chloe and 28-year-old Conor, and it’s looking for names.

However the gender of the child is as yet unknown as Chloe is keeping her new charge under close wraps.

So, what would you call him/her?
