Jason Sudeikis slammed for preaching on mental health at White House

Jason Sudeikis is coming under fire for preaching about mental health less than a year after publicly humiliating his ex-fiancée Olivia Wilde by having his lawyers serve her custody papers while on stage in front of industry executives. Sudeikis, 47, along with other Ted Lasso cast members, were meeting with President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden to talk about how mental health contributes to overall well-being. The comedian said he wanted to encourage people, even in politically divided Washington DC, to make it a point to check in often with friends, family and co-workers to 'ask how they're doing, and listen, sincerely.

' His caring words appeared directly counter the actions of his own legal team who served Wilde with papers in April 2022 while presenting live on stage at the 2022 CinemaCon. The 38-year-old actress was in the middle of a presentation for 4,100 film industry executives about last year's thriller Don't Worry Darling when she received the legal documents. Wilde called the incident 'an attack on her workplace', but said she was not surprised at it happening because there was a 'reason' she ended her relationship with Sudeikis.

 In court documents obtained by DailyMail. com, she argued that the decision to serve her onstage in front of an audience was a clear bid to 'threaten' and 'embarrass' her.  Sudeikis has since claimed he did not know Wilde would be served the papers in such a public and humiliating way.

Bank failures, bailouts divide Congress on next steps
WASHINGTON (AP) - Bills were filed, hearings were planned and blame was cast as Congress reacted this past week to the abrupt failure of two banks. A look at what lawmakers are saying and planning as the fallout continues from the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank.While President Joe Biden called Monday on Congress to strengthen the rules for banks to prevent future failures, lawmakers are divided on whether any legislation is needed.Some congressional leaders are skeptical that a closely divided Congress will act at all."There’s people who are going to choose bills, but I cannot imagine that, with the hold banks have on Republican members of Congress, that we can pass anything significant," said Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, chairman of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee.Republicans say the laws already in place were sufficient to prevent the bank failures, if only regulators had done their job by spotting obvious problems and directing the banks to take steps that would reduce their risk."If there are ideas out there that people have, you know, at some point, we would be willing to entertain those, but I think it would be premature to start talking about solutions before we fully define the problem and ultimately get answers from the regulators about why they were asleep at the job," said Sen.
