Mitt Romney is now happy to accept 'phony' Donald Trump's endorsement

Mashable - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 16:55

Can any Republican maintain opposition to Trump? Seems like Mitt Romney sure can't. 

Last week, the former Republican presidential candidate and former governor of Massachusetts announced his plan to run for a Senate seat in Utah. 

The prevailing wisdom was that Romney — who would replace retiring Senator Orrin Hatch — could serve as a stalwart Republican barricade against the president. I mean, less than two years ago, Mittens called Trump "phony" and "a fraud."

Trump had endorsed Romney during the 2012 election, but in 2016, Mitt regretted accepting it.

If Trump had said 4 years ago the things he says today about the KKK, Muslims, Mexicans, disabled, I would NOT have accepted his endorsement

Mashable - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 15:22

In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, all those wailing porg squeals are just chickens processed through what amounts to an Alvin and the Chipmunks filter.

A new ABC News documentary covering the sound design in The Last Jedi takes an up-close look at the efforts of the foley crew. They're the reason that porgs, rolling droids like BB-8, or even something as simple as footsteps all sound like distinct, natural extensions of the images on screen.
