Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s personal trainer Bryant Johnson does pushups before her casket at the U.S. Capitol in Washington DC (Sept. 25, 2020)

*The longtime personal trainer to late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg honored her in his own special way on Friday as she lay in state at the U.S. Capitol.

Bryant Johnson, who was famously captured in the documentary “RBG” during one of his morning workouts with the famed Justice, dropped down and did three pushups in front of her flag-draped casket.

Watch below:

Ginsburg became well known for her rigorous exercise routine consisting of squats, curls, planks and 20 full push-ups. Johnson wrote a book about it in 2017, “The RBG Workout: How She Stays Strong…And You Can Too!”

Johnson began training Ginsburg in 1999 after her first battle with cancer – that time in her colon – when her husband expressed concern about how frail she appeared. She worked out with Johnson twice a week at 7 p.m. from then on with few exceptions, most notably Johnson’s deployment to Kuwait as an Army reservist and equal opportunity adviser from 2004-2007, and when Ginsburg had serious health issues such as her 2009 bout with pancreatic cancer and a 2014 heart stent implant.  In Oct. 2019, Ginsburg said she continued her workout even after receiving radiation treatment that summer.

Below, Stephen Colbert crashes Johnson’s workout with Ginsburg for a 2018 “Late Show” segment.

Lanee Higgins and Davon Ford

*Baltimore couple Lanee Higgins and Davon Ford have created a game that offers a modern take of The Dozens.

“Winsults,” a card game in which you win by insulting your competitors, was birthed on Valentine’s Day in 2019. “Davon was roasting me. As he was laughing, he started saying this should be a game,” Higgins recalled to The Baltimore Times. He began thinking of rules, and the game Winsults was born.

The couple knew they had a hit after hosting a play-test event.

“We had just received the prototype and were ready to play. We had invited friends from all different circles to try out the game we created,” Higgins said. “It’s crazy how Winsults connected everyone in the room. Some of these people who had never met before were laughing together like they’d known each other for years.”

Here’s how the game works. In a Winsults deck, there are 26 alphabet cards, nine warp cards, and an instruction booklet that comes with a disclaimer. Higgins and Ford said Winsults is best played with loved ones and those we are most comfortable with because the game captures the feeling of home.

“Imagine you’re at a party, and you bring Winsults,” the couple noted. “You’re playing against your significant other who you’ve only been dating for two weeks. It’s your turn. You get the letter ’B.’ There are many insults that start with B— bum, bad, busted, big, burly— you go through them one at a time a five letter one that’s particularly chaotic. Forty seconds gone, only five seconds left to win the round. You can’t think of any other B insults. Do you unleash the chaos? That’s for you to decide.”

The couple wants everyone to understand that Winsults is “more than just a product.”

“We’re tired of game companies trying to sell you something just to upsell you later,” Higgins said. “We want you to buy Winsults once and only once so you can enjoy it for years to come.”

The landlord of a trailer park in Fort Morgan allegedly sent a note to residents warning rent would most likely double in price if Joe Biden becomes president.

*The landlord of a trailer park in Colorado got creative with his attempt at voter intimidation by threatening to double the rent collected from his tenants if Democratic nominee Joe Biden wins the presidential election.

The Washington Post reports that the short note was allegedly sent to residents by the owner of a Fort Morgan, Colo., trailer park on Monday, claiming that a Democratic victory would lead to “more in taxes, utilities, gasoline, groceries, new permits, fees and regulations … everything!”

“This also means YOUR RENT will be increased to cover these expenses,” the note continued. “Most likely, rent would DOUBLE in price!”

The stark letter, which residents shared with KUSA, irritated tenants and outraged some Colorado Democrats who on Thursday called the note “fearmongering” and a “scare tactic.” The Colorado secretary of state’s office has forwarded complaints about the letter to the state attorney general, KUSA reported.

“We can’t control how this whole election goes,” Cindy Marquez, one of the trailer park’s residents, told KUSA. “We can’t control what everyone else does, you know, we can’t control the results.”

Colorado state Sen. Julie Gonzales (D) said in a tweet Thursday that several tenants had reached out to her about whether the letter was legal. Although she did not weigh in on the legal question, Gonzales said the letter was unacceptable.

H.E.R., Adele and Kate McKinnon film “Saturday Night Live” promo for Oct. 24, 2020 broadcast

*”Saturday Night Live” released the two promos filmed by this weekend’s guest host Adele and musical guest H.E.R.

The two powerhouses appeared with cast member Kate McKinnon in the spots, and all were masked up.

“Hi, I’m Adele and I’m hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’ this week with musical guest H.E.R.,” the “Hello” singer announced in the clip, to which McKinnon seems confused.

“Wait, her or her?” the comedian asks, pointing to both singers. After a bit of back and forth, McKinnon declares, “Yes, me. It is I who will be musical guest this week.”

“Or maybe me?” H.E.R. clarifies as the three nudge to get some screen time.

In the second spot, Adele has a bit of fun with her American accent.

Watch both promos below, and catch both Adele and H.E.R. on “SNL” this weekend (Oct. 24) at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
