Tom Brady can chug a beer quicker than you can read this sentence

  
Tom Brady isn't much of a beer drinker, apparently, but he appears to be quite good at throwing the stuff back.

SEE ALSO: Streaming is revolutionizing sports broadcasting from within Although Brady told Colbert he drank beer "rarely," he said he "was a pretty good beer chugger back in the day," when Colbert brought out what appeared to be two beers, three-quarters full. Brady smashed the whole thing in about two seconds.  TONIGHT: Tom Brady doesn't usually drink beer, but when he does... pic.twitter.com/xGWdnlhJOR — The Late Show (@colbertlateshow) March 13, 2018 While the inevitable GOAT gushing ensued on Twitter, some folks raised a quizzical brow at what exactly was in Brady's glass, and whether it was 'beer' as opposed to beer. Others brandished the detail that the glasses weren't full. It's half a beer! "Chug a beer" based off the rules has to be a full beer! — David G. (@Ironman3319) March 13, 2018 Look, whatever. That's some undeniably skilful chugging, beer or not. And it's not the first we've heard of Brady's inhuman chugging ability, with his teammates all singing his praises back in 2014.

Rex Tillerson breaks with White House to say Russia is likely behind UK nerve agent attack

  
US secretary of state Rex Tillerson appeared to veer away from the official White House line last night to declare that Russia was probably behind an attempt to poison a former double agent, adding that the perpetrators should face punishment. "We have full confidence in the UK's investigation and its assessment that Russia was likely responsible for the nerve agent attack that took place in Salisbury last week," Mr Tillerson said. "We agree that those responsible - both those who committed the crime and those who ordered it - must face appropriately serious consequences. We stand in solidarity with our allies in the United Kingdom and will continue to coordinate closely our responses." Sarah Sanders, President Donald Trump's spokeswoman stopped short of blaming Russia when asked repeatedly whether or not the US backs the UK's position on the alleged poisoning. Before issuing his statement, Tillerson called his British counterpart Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to discuss the investigation into last week's attempt to kill former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the southwest of England. How the FSB deals with Russia's enemies with absolute impunity Speaking during a flight back from Africa, Tillerson told reporters that Theresa May's statement that the attackers had used a military-grade nerve agent developed by Russia appeared accurate. "It appears that it clearly came from Russia. Whether it came from Russia with the Russian government's knowledge is not known to me at this point," he said. "But you take a substance like was used, which is an extremely dangerous substance into another country, into a public place, where you know many others are going to be exposed is just - it's almost beyond comprehension that a state, an organized state would do something like that. "But this is a substance that is known to us and does not exist widely. It is only in the hands of a very, very limited number of parties. And I don't want to say anything further than that." Asked whether the apparent attack on a NATO member would trigger an allied response, Mr Tillerson said: "It certainly will trigger a response. I'll leave it that."......

Mike Pompeo, President Donald Trump's pick to replace sacked Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, threatens to bring a hard-line brand of climate change denialism to Foggy Bottom for the first time.
