Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg met with members of the European Parliament today (May 22) in what was billed as a “meeting” but ended up being more of an awkward hearing, in which the executive took a public lashing but was also let off the hook from many tough, detailed questions.
In one particularly uncomfortable moment for Zuckerberg, Nigel Farage, the well-known euro-skeptic and far-right leader, said that without social media, Trump and Brexit wouldn’t have happened, since these causes were able to circumvent traditional media to get their message to the public. “Perhaps you’re horrified by this creation of yours and what it’s led to,” he said to the 34-year-old, who looked a bit flabbergasted.
At the very end of the hearing, when it had gone over its scheduled time, there were several strained minutes, during which Zuckerberg clearly wanted to stop talking in order to avoid answering some of the more uncomfortable questions. Since no one stopped him, he said he wanted to “be sensitive to time” and ignored questions that some of the more insistent politicians kept repeating, like whether Facebook would allow users to avoid targeted advertising. He said he’d give the other answers in writing, which only sparked more quibbling among the members.

Wednesday will be declared Stormy Daniels Day in West Hollywood in honor of the Trump accuser's "courage" in "speaking truth," the city stated.
Daniels, described by the city as a leader in the #RESIST movement against the Trump administration, will be presented with a city proclamation declaring May 23, 2018 as Stormy Daniels Day. She will also be awarded the key to the city by West Hollywood Mayor John J. Duran.
“In these politically tumultuous times, Daniels has proven herself to be a profile in courage by speaking truth to power even under threats to her safety and extreme intimidation,” a city news release stated.
Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, has filed a lawsuit against the president’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, over the legality of a 2016 hush agreement in which she was paid to keep quiet about an alleged affair with Trump.
The president has denied any sexual encounter between the two.
In April, a composite sketch was released of a man the adult film star said threatened her over the alleged affair. Trump responded to the sketch by calling it “a total con job” on Twitter.
Wednesday's ceremony will take place about 4 p.m. at Chi Chi La Rue’s erotic apparel shop at 8861 Santa Monica Boulevard.
HUCKABEE: "I think it’s a wonderful idea. They will create a whole series of fictional content based on all the things that President Obama did to earn the Nobel Peace Prize. So it is going to be an extensive series of fiction that he will be able to tout the things that justified his getting a Nobel Peace Prize two weeks into his presidency, because it was based on all the things he was going to do. And since he didn’t do those things, now we’re going to be able to see this series. It will be bigger than 'House of Cards.'"
