Mindy Kaling brings ‘Late Night’ to Sundance
HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — Mindy Kaling took on President Donald Trump in her Sunday commencement address to Dartmouth College graduates, suggesting he may have "tweeted us into war" with Wakanda, the fictional country from "Black Panther."
"I'll tell you my secret, the one thing that keeps me going, my superpower: delusion," Kaling said in her speech amid laughter. "This is something I share with the president, a fact that is both horrifying and interesting."
HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — Actor, comedian and author Mindy Kaling is delivering the commencement address at Dartmouth College, her alma mater.
Kaling graduated from the Ivy League school in 2001. Kaling created, wrote, produced and starred in the medical-themed comedy series "The Mindy Project," and also played Kelly Kapoor on the American version of "The Office" for many seasons.

NEW YORK (AP) — When Rihanna attended this week's glitzy Met Gala, she was actually returning to the scene of the crime.
The Grammy-winning singer had earlier shot a spinoff of the "Oceans" film franchise that centers on a heist at the annual Met Gala.
The memory was particularly amusing for Rihanna, who attended the real gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday dripping in pearls and crystals in a Maison Margiela by John Galliano mini-dress, ornate robe and beaded papal headgear.
This graduation season, the podium is all hers.
For the first time in at least two decades, the majority of the nation's top colleges are featuring women as their spring commencement speakers, a shift that industry experts credit to the wave of female empowerment that has fueled the #MeToo movement.
Yale is bringing Hillary Clinton. MIT will host Sheryl Sandberg. Vanderbilt landed Amal Clooney, while Dartmouth chose Mindy Kaling.
