As the wave of nostalgia continues to plague our culture, yet another beloved property is getting the old reboot: Jim Henson's Muppet Babies. This ain't your father's Muppet Babies, though. Muppet Babies will feature a new, 100% computer-generated look for Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzy, and the rest. No word yet as to whether or not Nanny and her infamous green and white stripped stockings will be 100% computer generated.
Oh, also, the characters look absolutely terrifying.
Have you been up at 3am tweet-shaming President Obama recently? Well, watch out, he sees you.
Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, President Barack Obama took out an iPhone and participated in Kimmel's much-beloved Mean Tweets segment, fielding insult after insult on everything, from some bad shampoo to his choice of jeans. You think dealing with Putin's tough? Try sleeping after being called both the Nickelback of Presidents and the Sharknado of Presidents. Cold blooded.
The final insult of the night came from, you guessed it, Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump. Under the guise of his @realDonaldTrump handle, Trump lobbed 140 characters of fury at the commander-in-chief.
To which Obama replied, "At least I will go down as a President."

2. Hunger Games IRL at the Olympics
During the men's marathon on Sunday, Ethiopian long-distance runner Feyisa Lilesa pulled a Hunger Games moment and showed his support for the Oromo Protests in his home country by making a specific motion with his arms:
Showing the sign is highly political though, so when he spoke a press conference after the marathon he said what he risked with the gesture, "If I go back to Ethiopia maybe they will kill me," he said, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
"If I am not killed maybe they will put me in prison. [If ] they [do] not put me in prison they will block me at airport. I have got a decision. Maybe I move to another country."
Like the Hunger Games, let's hope the people can rise above this oppression.
2. Donald Trump Breaks the Lie Barrier
Fact Check says Trump's First Ad Averages 1 Lie Every 4 Seconds. I can hear Hillary's slow golf-clap from here. Let's hope his next ad doesn't disappoint us either.
3. But Did You See the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team on the Beach in Rio?
I'm just saying, I didn't know it was possible to get an 8-pack:
We here at The Daily What LOOOVE a good conspiracy theory.
Today's fun features oft-hated political commentator, hero of the working class, and millionaire, Michael Moore,
theorizing that the Donald was never an actual candidate for President, but was annoyed he wasn't being paid enough by NBC officials for his hit NBS TV shows, "The Apprentice" and "The Celebrity Apprentice," so he ran for office as a stunt to get better ratings and demand a higher paycheck.
According to Moore, Trump "cannot and WILL NOT suffer through being officially and legally declared a loser—LOSER!—on the night of November 8."
Moore continues that Trump "would rather invite the Clintons and the Obamas to his next wedding than have that scarlet letter L branded on his forehead seconds after the last polls have closed on that night."
So what do you think? Think Trump's in it for the money? Rumor has it he may drop out soon, so maybe he thinks he's got a giant TV paycheck coming?
