Facebook, a never-ending source of useful information, has been our goto for up-to-the-minute election coverage this past season. As such, it’s probably caused us more anxiety about this election than any one speech, Wikileaks email, or video featuring Billy Bush. Your Facebook wall feeds into your worst fears about the candidates, and Stephen Colbert knows it.

On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, Colbert took a big swig of cough syrup, dusted off his box of Reynolds wrap, and made a new tin foil hat to block the radio signals that the Illuminati uses to read our minds. Colbert is full of great intel about such things as the whereabouts of Chumbawumba, the shadowy industry of upstate New York weddings, and what oysters actually are. By the end of it, you’ll have your cork board up and long strands of yarn connecting seemingly disparate items together to prove your theory that, hey, what if the Chicken McNugget is more nugget than chicken?

Check out the video and prepare to have your mind blown.

Fuller House, the Full House reunion series that you just had to have, premiered a mere nine months ago, and today, Netflix has released the trailer for the follow-up. That's right, Fuller House will be returning for another round of family-friendly high jinks on December 9. 

All your favorites are returning: Stephanie, DJ, Kimmy, and Danny, sporting a new, funky midlife crisis. So if you've been missing the milkman, the paperboy, and/or the evening TV, Fuller House is back because, let's face it, you just had to have this. 

via GIPHY

Just in time for the holidays, Fuller House season two will drop all at once on December 9, so be sure to carve out some time in your busy holiday schedule to binge on what might be Netflix's most popular show. No, seriously, Fuller House season one brought in over 14-million viewers, which is more eyes on the screen than Game of Thrones or Walking Dead. Yup, an estimated 14.4 million people just had to have this thing, and because of that, we're all getting more. 

Just goes to show you, most people just want some light situational comedy, not humans being hacked to death. Go figure.

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.

Muppet Babies premieres on Disney Junior in 2018, but until then, why don't you kickback and get the theme song stuck in your head?

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."

1. Grab that Remote, It's Fall TV Time, beotches!

Time to lace up your Taylor Swift-issue Keds, grab your retro backpack, and queue up your DVR so you don't miss these awesome new Science Fiction and Fantasy Shows on TV This Fall!

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.

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?
