    Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Oprah Winfrey and Jimmy Kimmel will be in their element. ABC, NBC, CBS and several other international networks are planning to broadcast the event, organized by the WHO and Lady Gaga. Taylor Swift, Elton John, Billie Eilish, Idris Elba and other pop music icons have already signed on to the extravaganza, which is expected to consist of several virtual performances, or remote appearances. Donations to the WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund will be solicited. Lady Gaga has managed to raise US$35 million for the fund so far, and at this rate the Saturday show might go a long way to offset the freeze on U.S. contributions to the WHO that Trump announced on Tuesday.

    In the middle of a pandemic, Hollywood is funding the propaganda arm of China that was intentionally putting out fake info on the virus.

    I don't think I even know who Idris Elba is.
    I just hope they wear their masks to contain the noise spewing from propaganda emitters!

    And any Glock Talker who doesn't post a few times during the concert will be assumed to be watching it and categorized as the same.

    I don't think it's got anything to do with race. He was pretty solid in Thor, I thought.

    They wanted him as Bond, solely because they wanted a black Bond.

    It won't 'turn into' .... that's what it is, that's what it's for. Never let a crisis go to waste.
