On this week’s “Saturday Night Live,” host Tom Hanks starred in a skit titled “Black Jeopardy,” in which he popped up as a white, right-wing Trump supporter named Doug sporting a “Make America Great Again” hat on a contestant panel with two black women. Hosted by Kenan Thompson as Darnell Hayes, the ‘SNL’ skit also featured Leslie Jones as “Shanice” and Sasheer Zamata as “Keeley,” exploring exceptionally relevant topics in a way that was both hilarious, and strangely respectful. The skit started and ended powerful, with perfect exchanges between Hanks and Thompson, including a hesitant handshake between Thompson’s host and “Doug”.
The final debate sketch wasn’t the only time Tom Hanks and Saturday Night Live decided to roast Donald Trump. S.N.L. hasn’t exactly been gentle on Trump supporters this election season. Or did you miss that fake ad last year where the show unflinchingly compared them to Nazis? So, knowing some biting political commentary is coming, it’s surprising to see Tom Hanks—who, earlier in the night, leaned into his gentle, “America’s Dad” persona—put on that red “Make America Great Again” cap for a “Black Jeopardy!” sketch. But, either way, it was good to see Hanks behind the old Jeopardy! podium where he made such a splash playing a dumbed down version of himself opposite Will Ferrell’s Alex Trebek back

October 23 at 12:00 AM Dear Miss Manners: One of my girlfriends recently got engaged. I was very happy and excited for her, as she had waited for this proposal for what seemed a long time. When she texted me with a photo of the proposal taking place, I quickly texted back my congratulations. The next day, I then followed up with a phone call to again congratulate the happy couple and find out the details of the proposal. Imagine my dismay when, a few days later, my friend discussed with me how disappointed she was in her friends’ response to her engagement! She proceeded to tell me that it really bothered her that none of her good friends took her out for Champagne to celebrate or for a manicure.
One fan saw something and said something, leading to a very grateful response from an Olympic swimmer. Australian gold medalist Mack Horton posted on social media thanking an anonymous fan for contacting his team doctor about a suspicious mole on his chest. "Shout out to the person that emailed the swim team doctor and told me to get my mole checked out," he wrote. "Good call. Very good call." In the photo, a bandage covers Horton's chest, but he did not specify whether the mole was found to be malignant or not. According to Cancer Council Australia, two in three Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they're 70, almost all due to exposure to the sun. Horton, who is 20, won gold
