Juan Williams is leaving “The Five,” John Cena is “groveling” to China — in Mandarin, no less — Dennis Quaid reveals what got him “kicked out of the hippies” and Harry Reid just wants Americans to know more about UFOs.

The 24-hour news cycle — coupled with thousands of media outlets and a gradual return from pandemic boredom to a somewhat normal life — makes it all but impossible for anyone to truly stay abreast of all the news.

To save our readers the time and aggravation, the Daily Caller has compiled some of the most ridiculous moments from the last week and brought them together in one convenient dispatch.

So here it is, the week that was:

  • Meghan McCain flamed CNN anchor Chris Cuomo for failing to cover the bad news regarding his brother, Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo — even while he was participating in strategy calls over accusations of sexual harassment against the governor.


  • Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis continued his crusade against critical race theory, vowing once again to keep it out of the schools in his state. “You can put lipstick on a pif and it’s still a pig,” he said, arguing that it was “offensive” to suggest that taxpayers fund lesson plans that would teach kids to “hate their country and hate each other.”

  • CNN’s Don Lemon declared the Republican Party obsolete. “The only party now that is operating in reality is the Democratic Party,” Lemon said, also claiming that he too lived in that reality. “I’m a journalist.”

  • CNN weekend anchor Jim Acosta referred to former President Donald Trump as “the Mussolini of Mar-a-Lago,” arguing that GOP leaders were afraid of what a commission to investigate the January 6 riot at the Capitol might unearth.


  • “Ain’t no f**king way!” Charles Barkley says the NBA doesn’t “have the balls to suspend LeBron James.”

  • Secretary of State Antony Blinken won’t say whether he believes Iran is funding Hamas terrorists in their recent attacks on Israel. “Iran is engaged in a number of activities,” Blinken told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”


  • Meghan McCain torched media for running cover for progressives like Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez while blatantly attempting to bury people like Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. McCain, who has made it clear that she cannot stand Greene, argued that the obvious bias in media was “how people get red-pilled.”


  • Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid thinks Americans should know more about UFOs.

  • Former WWE star John Cena apologized to the Chinese government for referring to Taiwan as a country during his press tour for the latest “Fast & Furious” film.

  • Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy says he believes that love is the answer. “But you oughta own a handgun just in case.”‘

  • Fox News host Dana Perino was not impressed with John Cena’s apology. “This is pitiful. And it’s not attractive,” she said, accusing him of “groveling” to the Chinese government.


  • White House senior medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci would not say whether he believed the Chinese Communist Party had undue influence over the World Health Organization.

  • Fox News political analyst Juan Williams announced that he was leaving his regular spot cohosting “The Five.” In the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic, Williams opted to stay in Washington, D.C. — and “The Five” is based in New York City. Williams will remain at Fox as an analyst.


  • And finally, actor Dennis Quaid revealed that his own roommate declared him “kicked out of the hippies” when he admitted he had voted for former President Ronald Reagan in 1980. Quaid took on the role of the actor-turned president in a film set to be released next year.
