Jon Stewart Tries To Hold It Together About Eric Garner. He Really Tries.

That word he ends with — is there really any other word for when a grand jury decides that what a coroner calls "homicide" shouldn't even go to *trial*?

In case you can't watch the video (but do watch it if you can), here is the breakdown:

Jon Stewart announces the grand jury's decision not to send Eric Garner's killer to trial and observes how hot on the heels it is on the injustice in Ferguson.


He goes on to explain to those of us who just don't understand.

But surely the cops must have some reasonable benefit of the doubt due in this case, right?

No? Even the medical examiner ruled Eric Garner's death a homicide, and still no trial? Well, then.

For the first time in its 56-year history, Sports Illustrated will feature a transgender model on its glossy cover. 23-year-old Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio will appear in the July issue, which hits stands early next week. Sampaio wrote on Instagram that she was "excited and honored" to be part of such an iconic issue, adding: "The team at SI has created yet another groundbreaking issue by bringing together a diverse set of multitalented, beautiful women in a creative and dignified way."

A native of Fortaleza, a city in northeastern Brazil, Sampaio has been making history in the fashion world in recent years. She was already the first trans model to make the 2017 cover of Vogue Paris. Scouted while she was a young teen, she quickly made her way onto key runways in her home country. She managed to make an impression in a short time— launching her career at 18 years old—as L'Oréal Paris's first trans model. She hit another milestone last year, when she was the face of Victoria's Secret campaign, breaking barriers as the first trans woman working with the brand.
