EU to mull post-Brexit membership for 'united Ireland': sources
EU leaders are expected at a summit this weekend to back automatic membership for Northern Ireland after Brexit if it ever reunifies with Ireland, sources said on Friday. Ireland will ask the 27 European Union leaders to endorse a text on the issue when they meet on Saturday without Britain to adopt guidelines for Brexit negotiations. While the move could rile London, European sources said it would only "state the obvious" and compared it to integration of the former East Germany into the EU after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Two US soldiers killed in Afghanistan may have been hit with friendly fire, says Pentagon
Two US special operations forces soldiers killed in eastern Afghanistan may have been struck by friendly fire in an operation targeting the emir of Islamic State militants in Afghanistan, the Pentagon has said. Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis told reporters that the military was investigating whether the two troops may have been killed by ground fire, either by American forces or Afghan commandos taking part in the raid, though it appeared to be accidental. ?We are investigating the circumstances of the combat deaths of the two Army Rangers in the beginning of what was an intense three-hour firefight,? Davis said.
Leonardo DiCaprio used a standard, office file folder for his climate march sign, lol
Look, let me start by saying Leonardo DiCaprio has done a lot to combat climate change. He produced a climate change documentary titled Before the Flood that dropped in 2016. He has a foundation "dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earth?s inhabitants." The foundation has given $61 million to causes that align with that mission statement. He talks about climate change all the time. And, also, he was among the ~200,000 people in Washington, D.C. on Saturday to protest a White House that very much does not share his (scientifically valid) concern for the damage people are doing to the climate. SEE ALSO: Trump's big EPA website change should make you furious It's just kind of funny that the man who has done all of the above couldn't get a sign for the protest that was bigger than a piece of computer paper. Like, at what point did DiCaprio realize he wanted a sign? Did he wake up in a hotel and say, "Shit, I forgot people were going to write things on posters and walk around with them at this thing I'm going to today," and then he went to the nearest Staples, a Staples with markers but without posterboard? Did the hotel have a green and a red marker and a file folder somewhere? Does he keep these things in a bag? Anyway, it's just funny.
