Katie Couric is spilling the tea on RBG’s 2016 takes on Colin Kaepernick and kneeling during the national anthem ahead of her new book she’s selling.

A new product that looks like it might not work is being marketed as an anti cocaine spray. In quite possibly the greatest video ever elite North Korean soldiers put on a live display for Kim Jung Un ([00:51:34])
