Dating website matches Trump supporters

One California man wants to "make dating great again" with a Trump-themed dating website.

Trump Singles is a not-quite-new, but suddenly ignore-at-your-own-peril dating site is aimed squarely at supporters of the president-elect.

Founder David Goss launched the site in May 2016 for "like minded" people with the same political views.

"Sometimes it's tough to date when you're a Trump supporter, so we're making it easier to find each other," Goss said on Fox & Friends in June 2016. "The Trump Single is just a fun-loving person. We just have our views and when we stick to them and we're proud of them and we're not willing to give up on them just to date somebody."

On Friday, Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States.

According to TMZ, the cost of membership at TrumpSingles.com has skyrocketed from $5 to $19.95 per month.

A quick perusal of the registration portion of TrumpSingles.com turns up pretty much the usual dating site questions related to looks, interests and smoking and drinking habits. Nothing specifically Trump-related, although the site's motto is "Making Dating Great Again." So you kind of know what you're getting into right from the start.

That's way better than we can say for most fixups.

Ewan McGregor went on Graham Norton’s show and demonstrated his mastery of “Star Wars” lightsaber sound effects

As the actor who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in “Star Wars” Episodes I through III (and was the shining light of those, uh, controversial films), Ewan McGregor knows his way around a lightsaber better than anyone. When he went on “The Graham Norton Show” with Chris O’Dowd in 2011, McGregor got to show off his skills for the first time in several years. He didn’t seem rusty, but maybe Norton and O’Dowd weren’t worthy opponents.

While the show didn’t provide lightsaber sound effects, McGregor was ready with his own — what a professional.

McGregor’s demonstration wasn’t as high-flying and risky as any Obi-Wan gave in the movie, but given that O’Dowd had some trouble finding the switch to turn his saber on, it’s probably better that the weapons they were using weren’t actually super-hot laser swords.

McGregor even got the opportunity to show off his laser deflections, though they were a little more baseball-like than in the movies.

You never forget how to swing a lightsaber. It’s just like riding a bike.

This girl pranked her Tinder match by conversing entirely in quotes from “The Office”

yesterday i convinced a boy that i am a beet farmer by using quotes from the office pic.twitter.com/3xzSEJGVfz — caroline (@caro_bearo) January 15, 2017

Dwight Schrute, a character made famous by “The Office,” knows what it takes to succeed in life, and apparently, he also knows what it takes to succeed in getting Tinder dates, as one woman found out recently.

RELATED: These guys had way too much fun pranking their Tinder matches, because dating isn’t hard enough

Having matched with a well-meaning guy named Nathan, Caroline decided to have a little bit of fun by communicating entirely in Dwight quotes for the length of the conversation. Either Nathan isn’t a fan of “The Office” or he found the idea of a girl who ran a beet farm too good to pass up, even as a joke. After all, entrepreneurship is an appealing quality in a partner. No one can say Dwight wasn’t a go-getter.

Good luck to all of you lonely hearts out there just trying to find the right beet-farmer for you.

Funny or Die made the perfect video for everyone sick of celebrity PSAs about politics

The election season is always filled with celebrity endorsements and the biggest names in music and movies throwing their weight behind their candidate. The 2016 election cycle was particularly bogged down with celebrity PSAs, with almost all of them endorsing Hillary Clinton.

Watch the video

It seemed like every week a gaggle of stars put together a video backing Clinton and talking about the issues that they cared about. Unfortunately for them, that didn’t really help, and sharing a post on Facebook is a lot different (and infinitely less effective) actually showing up and voting. And the team over at Funny or Die, a group of humorists headed by Will Ferrell, is pretty tired of celebrity endorsements and keyboard warriors — so tired, in fact, that they’ve made a video about it.

Michael Strahan and Jimmy Fallon brought the laughs in their game of Pyramid

Former NFL phenom and current morning show host Michael Strahan stopped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to play a game of Pyramid with Fallon, Questlove, and actress Bryce Dallas Howard. The game was essentially a spin-off of Catchphrase, an old Fallon favorite.

Fallon and Questlove showed that they have a great rapport — unsurprising, as they have worked together for a couple years now. Strahan and Howard had a bit of a struggle and, in an almost unfair twist, there was a music category.

9 Nacho Recipes to Make Game Day (Just a Tad) Healthier

Football is entertaining to watch, but let's be real... the best thing about the season is the food. Spicy wings, loaded pizza, and bar bites galore—all paired with an ice-cold beer and team camaraderie. Sounds like the perfect Sunday, no? If you're trying to avoid total gut-bombs, fortunately there are plenty of ways to enjoy healthyish game-day grub. The best part: There’s no need to skimp on flavor. These nine nacho-average recipes are proof.

1. Mini Nacho Pizzas Photo: Lunch Box Bunch The toughest problem to tackle when it comes to eating nachos is that once we start, we can’t stop. These mini pizzas throw a Hail Mary pass by providing pure satisfaction in just one serving. Made with whole-wheat English muffins, vegan cheese, beans, and tons of veggie toppings, they’re sure to keep you full through halftime. 2. Grilled Zucchini Nachos Photo: Two Peas and Their Pod Zucchinis are making a comeback. They first stole the stage as low-carb noodle substitutes, and now they’re stepping in for the beloved tortilla chip. Top with melted cheddar cheese, black beans, and the usual nacho fixings. You won’t even miss that corn chip crunch. 3. Chicken and Black Bean Nachos Photo: The Baker Mama Sometimes the smallest changes yield the biggest results. That’s the case with this recipe, which keeps traditional ingredients such as cheese, corn, and pico de gallo, and makes small adjustments (like using black beans and grilled chicken for extra protein) to create a similar flavor with way more health benefits. 4. Grilled Sweet Potato Nachos Photo: Pinch of Yum Made with multigrain tortilla chips and sweet potato wedges, this spicy spin on nachos is enough to fuel you through a full marathon (running or movie, we’re down for both). It also comes with a side of cheese sauce to drizzle on top or dip in. Need we say more? 5. Vegan Cheesecake Dessert Nachos Photo: Abbey's Kitchen Dessert is best when shared, and this sweet plate is definitely good enough for a group. Make your own base with multigrain flatbreads: Cut two into triangles, sprinkle with cinnamon and coconut sugar, and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Then top with a cashew-based cheesecake drizzle, and pick a few toppings, such as fresh berries, cacao nibs, or toasted coconut. This one takes a little more work than the others, but it’s worth the effort, especially for vegan or dairy-free eaters. 6. Greek Goddess Pita Chip Nachos Photo: Vegetarian Ventures Sick of the same old melted cheese and ground meat combo? Try these Greek-inspired nachos instead for a fresher take on the bar-food favorite. They’re made with pita chips instead of tortilla, and are loaded with feta cheese, chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, olives, and a tahini dressing. 7. Apple Nachos With Peanut Butter and Chocolate Photo: Trial and Eater You can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate (though this recipe would taste great with almond or cashew butter too). Simply melt your nut butter of choice, drizzle it over small slices of juicy apples, and top with dark chocolate chips. Yum. 8. Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Nachos Photo: The Roasted Root Sunny-side up eggs are a great addition to basically any savory dish, and these nachos are no exception. Add them on top of blue corn chips, sweet potato slices, black beans, and cheese, then throw on some diced tomatoes, onions, and avocado (duh). These hearty nachos are definitely filling enough to be a meal, and with the runny eggs, your best bet is to eat them with a fork. 9. Buffalo Chicken Mini Pepper Nachos Photo: Smile Sandwich For those who want to cut back on carbs but don’t love zucchini, there’s still hope. Bell peppers make the perfect vehicle for nacho toppings, and unlike chips, the sturdy peppers won’t crumble when loaded. Spice up your night (and life) with this buffalo chicken version, which requires just five ingredients (plus mini peppers, of course): shredded chicken, buffalo sauce, blue cheese crumbles, green onion, and shredded white American cheese.

Stephen Colbert wonders how Donald Trump spent his MLK weekend

Stephen Colbert has made it known that he’s not a big fan of the incoming president. During Monday night’s monologue, he didn’t stray from that point of view.

It certainly didn’t help Donald Trump that he shot off a tweet blasting civil rights leader John Lewis.

Colbert opened his monologue by wishing a happy Martin Luther King Day to his audience, then wasted no time poking fun at Trump, making light of the fact that the president-elect cancelled his visit to the brand new African-American museum in Washington, D.C.

The late-night host then lapsed into his go-to Trump voice to read the soon-to-be commander-in-chief’s tweet. The audience, unsurprisingly, loved it. And John Baptiste offered his warm and hearty laughter.

Colbert mentioned that members of Trump’s transition team said they will remove the press from the White House; he branded them the “opposition party.” The comedian joked that this puts the free press in company with “intelligence agencies, civil rights leaders, Meryl Streep, and non-absorbent hotel mattresses.”

Child killed, another injured in pit bull attack

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution contributed to this story.

A boy has died, and a girl was seriously injured after a pit bull attack in southwest Atlanta.

>> Read more trending stories 

The attack happened around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday while the children were walking to F.L. Stanton Elementary School.

Three children were present during the attack, but only two were mauled by the dogs, WSB-TV reported.

A 6-year-old boy was sent to Grady Memorial Hospital, and a girl was taken to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. The injured girl was listed in stable condition at a local hospital. The boy died at Grady Hospital's trauma unit.

A neighbor detailed the graphic moment neighbors rushed to save three children, during the attack.

"I (ran) up on the girl. She had been mauled very badly. The dog just ripped into her," neighbor Angie Smith told WSB-TV. "I ran to the baby, and when I looked down at her, I knew there was nothing that I could do." 

The scene showed clothing and other items strewn outside the home.

Animal control was sent to the scene, where officers contained two dogs. Sgt. Warren Pickard said a third dog was shot by officers.

"Our officers couldn't get control of it in a manner that he felt safe," Atlanta police Sgt. Warren Pickard said, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "So our policies and procedures allow us to act in that capacity."

The owner of the dogs, Cameron Tucker, was taken into custody, but police did not go into detail about any criminal charges.

"We're still trying to evaluate to figure out what really happened," Pickard told the AJC.

Shamonta Clayton, a neighbor to both children injured, said he woke up this morning to screams and ran outside. He found a little girl badly mauled.

"As I get to the end of the street, I see the child's unconscious body laying in the middle of the street," Clayton said.

He noticed another dog and followed it, finding children pinned on a porch on the backside of an abandoned house.

"So I chased the dog away from the kids, and I noticed the second child, a little boy, his unconscious body laying down in the grass," Clayton said.

The dog circled back to the child, and Clayton said he chased the dog off with his gun.

"I picked the child's body up because his mom couldn't do nothing but sit there and just cry," Clayton said.

Pickard said some children "ran back to the scene to try to pull the dogs off the children that were injured."

F.L. Stanton Elementary released a statement regarding their students:

"Atlanta Public Schools can confirm that two F.L. Stanton Elementary students walking to the bus stop were attacked by pitbulls. Both students were transported to Egleston Hospital. One student was transported back to Grady Hospital's trauma unit and later passed away.  The female student at Egleston is in stable condition. Atlanta Public Schools sent a crisis team to F.L. Stanton this morning to provide grief counseling for students and staff. Our deepest condolences go out to the family."
