They’re almost too good to be true.

When White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci called New Yorker journalist Ryan Lizza on Wednesday evening, Lizza couldn’t have known the interview would be as entertaining as it was horrifying. As of Friday, Scaramucci has held the new position for exactly one week. In that time, he’s managed to spew some of the most outrageous quotes American politics has ever seen – and that’s saying something in the context of the Trump administration.

By chatting with Lizza, Scaramucci (who refers to himself in the third-person as “the Mooch”) hoped to find out who leaked information about President Trump’s dinner with former Fox News executive Bill Shine and Fox News host Sean Hannity. Despite Lizza politely declining to reveal who leaked the information (because, duh, he’s a journalist), Scaramucci continued to pester him while also threatening to fire the entire White House communications staff, throwing shade at White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and give a graphic mental picture of Trump strategist Steve Bannon in the process.

Naturally, “The Daily Show” turned those quotes into pure gold: motivational posters to last the ages. Check out a few of the best ones below to decide which one should hang next to your Classic Cats wall calendar.

The U.K. is trying to reach its goal of net-zero emissions by 2050, but aviation may become the biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.K. by that same year. A new study commissioned by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) and conducted at the Imperial College London says that in order for the U.K. to reach its target, aviation can only see a 25% increase, and they've got a very specific recommendation on how to fix it: Curb frequent flyer programs.

Currently, air travel accounts for 2% of global greenhouse gas emissions, however that number is projected to increase for several reasons. There's a growing demand for air travel, yet it's harder to decarbonize aviation. Electric cars are becoming more common. Electric planes, not so much. If things keep on going the way they are, flights in the U.K. should increase by 50%.

Nearly every airline in the world has a frequent flyer program. The programs offer perks, including free flights, if customers get a certain amount of points. According to the study, 70% of all flights from the U.K. are taken by 15% of the population, with many people taking additional (and arguably unnecessary) flights to "maintain their privileged traveler status."

The Connors family, two coupes from the United Kingdom, one with a three-month old baby and the other with twin two-year-olds, were on vacation in Canada when the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) turned their holiday into a 12-plus day-long nightmare.

On October 3, the family was driving near the U.S.-Canada border in British Columbia when an animal veered into the road, forcing them to make an unexpected detour.

The family accidentally crossed into the United States where they were detained by ICE officials in what would become "the scariest experience of our lives," according to a complaint filed with the inspector general of the Department of Homeland Security.

The old saying goes something like, "Possessions don't make you happy." A more dire version is, "What you own, ends up owning you."

Are these old adages true or just the empty words of ancient party-poopers challenging you not to buy an iPhone 11? According to a new study of 968 young adults by the University of Arizona, being materialistic only brings us misery.

The study examined how engaging in pro-environmental behaviors affects the well-being of millenials. The study found two ways in which they modify their behaviors to help the environment: they either reduce what they consume or purchase green items.
