This is so heartbreaking.

Stephen Hillenburg, creator of SpongeBob SquarePants, revealed he has been diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disease ALS.

Hillenburg noted he was grateful for all the support he's been getting from fans and loved ones, writing in the statement:

"I wanted people to hear directly from me that I have been diagnosed with ALS.

Twitter Reacts To The CBO's Prediction That Donald Trump's Health Care Plan Will Leave 14 Million More People Uninsured Next Year

no title

Donald Trump isn't gonna like this!

The Congressional Budget Office (a resource Drumpf has cited before when criticizing Barack Obama) just released its report on the American Health Care Act — and the numbers are quite frightening.

According to the CBO, an estimated 14 million more people will be "uninsured under the legislation than under current law" in 2018 if Trump's plan becomes law. That's NEXT YEAR, in case you forgot.

Further, that number is expected to climb to 24 million by 2026:

"In 2026, an estimated 52 million people would be uninsured, compared with 28 million who would lack insurance that year under current law."

Great — we continue to move backwards!

This May Be The Most Important 18 Minutes You Spend All Week!

Filed under: TV NewsDonald TrumpBusiness BlitzHealthFunnyJohn Oliver

Let's be honest. We aren't going to read the text of the American Health Care Act. No one is. The thing is MASSIVE! It looks like a civics textbook started mainlining HGH (and turned into a real asshole).

So how can we be sure Donald Trump's replacement for Obamacare is terrible?? Well, for one, it's from Paul Ryan and the being-poor-is-a-sin-against-god singers.

As we previously reported, the 49-year-old was rushed to the hospital on Friday evening after he lost consciousness during his Las Vegas show, Mindfreak Live!. The stunt?? Well, Angel was trying to escape from a straitjacket while hanging upside-down. So scary!

But the famed magician wasn't badly injured as he was released from the medical center after only a handful of hours.

In fact, it seems as though Criss was determined to pull off the trick, as on Saturday he returned to his Sin City stage and performed the escape without any hiccups. And fans certainly took notice of Angel's bravery as they took to Twitter to sing his praises (below)!
