Hillary Clinton is taking her beef with Donald Trump international, most recently with an appearance on Britain’s Channel 4 news, where she claimed the president is endangering world peace in dealings with Iran and North Korea.
Clinton – who spent the months since her humiliating defeat last November promoting her new book “What Happened?” – also continued her new campaign to offer excuses for her loss to Trump, and attempted to explain away her ties to disgraced Hollywood producer and major campaign donor Harvey Weinstein.
Channel 4’s Matt Frei offered Clinton the perfect venue to air her grievances.
“You called him during the campaign, and you said this in the book as well, that he was a clear and present danger to the United States and indeed the world,” he told Clinton.
Jane Fonda, actress, activist, friend of the Viet Cong and leotard-clad purveyor of countless fitness tapes, actually blamed “male entitlement” for the disgusting behavior of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
Fonda was talking about what people have to do to curtail the kind of behavior Weinstein is accused of when she revealed that she knew about it for a year beforehand. She made the comments during a CNN interview on Thursday with Christiane Amanpour.
President Trump didn’t mince words about the state of America’s inner cities during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity Wednesday, when he discussed places like Chicago, “where things are just out of control.”
While many A-list celebrities and high-profile politicians are claiming they had no knowledge of famed producer Harvey Weinstein’s lurid behavior with his female stars, a 2013 clip from a press conference for the Academy Awards makes it clear his antics were an open joke in Hollywood for years.
“The 2012 nominees for best performance by an actress in a supporting role are Sally Field in Lincoln, Anne Hathaway in Les Miserables, Jacki Weaver in Silver Linings Playbook, Helen Hunt in The Sessions, and Amy Adams in The Master,” Seth MacFarlane said at the event.
Lithonia, Georgia mom Octavia Parks was left dumbfounded after discovering her 12 year old daughter’s health class homework.
The sixth grade student from Lithonia Middle School in Lithonia, Georgia was given an assignment last week asking students to name sexual identity terms — such as gay, lesbian and transgender — based on their definitions.
The “Identity Definitions” assignment defined the terms as follows:
A woman who is attracted to women [answer: lesbian]
A man who is attracted to men [answer: gay]
A person who is attracted to men and women [answer: bisexual]
When the person’s gender identity doesn’t match the sex (male or female) the doctor said they were when they were born [answer: transgender]
“We’re talking about a sixth-grader who still watches Nickelodeon,” Parks told FOX 5 Atlanta WAGA-TV. “Why are they teaching that in school? What does that have to do with life?”
Parks told WAGA she opted her daughter out of the health class.
“I’m not ready to explain what these words are nor what they mean,” continued Ms. Parks.
NBC appears to be more interested in protecting it’s leftward leaning political bias than they are in uncovering the truth.
Journalist Ronan Farrow had been investigating the long history of allegations of sexual misconduct by Harvey Weinstein as recently as August. According to multiple sources, he presented a final copy of his investigation to NBC executives at that time.
Farrow, an NBCcontributor and investigative reporter, had already obtained damning audio of an encounter that Weinstein had in 2015. In the audio file, Weinstein blatantly admits to having groped an unnamed woman.
However, instead of running with the story, NBC claims it had “concerns” related to the story’s sourcing. It’s unclear exactly what thoses concerns were. Nonetheless, they allowed Farrow to take his story to The New Yorker, which Farrow promptly did.
In the story, several women spoke on the record about their encounters with Weinstein. Among them were Oscar winning actress Mira Sorvino and filmmaker Asia Argento, the latter of whom said Weinstein raped her.
When pressed for an explanation as to why NBC chose not to run with Farrow’s story, the network declined to comment.
Meanwhile Curtis Houck, managing editor of NewsBusters, was among those raising questions about the NBC decision. He and Rachel Maddow discussed this on MSNBC on Tuesday.
Some House Democrats are raising the specter of withholding support for must-pass spending legislation later this year in response to President Trump’s hard-line immigration proposals — meaning the fate of roughly 690,000 younger undocumented immigrants could become a major factor in negotiations to keep the government open after December.
“What the White House put forward is a complete non-starter,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in an interview, blaming Trump’s senior policy aides for advancing “un-American” ideas on how to deal with immigration.
“There’s nothing in it to negotiate because it does not have shared values of who we are as Americans,” she told the paper.
Fiscal Times columnist Liz Peek told Fox Business that Trump has offered a number of proposals to cut down on illegal immigration.
Congressional Democrats think it’s time to ditch aging leaders like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to make room for new blood.
Fox & Friends aired a clip of California Rep. Linda Sanchez calling for change in Democratic leadership, and asked Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, who most recently challenged Pelosi for House Speaker, about his take on the party’s future.
When you’re a conservative speaking on a liberal college campus, it’s amazing how many things can go wrong all at once.
Texas state Rep. Briscoe Cain (R) was removed Monday from the Texas Southern University campus during a scheduled speech at the school’s chapter of The Federalist Society. He was to share some of his experiences working in the Texas legislature. However, before he was allowed to begin, students affiliated with Black Lives Matter disrupted the event.
The protestors began accusing him of being a racist and carrying signs with slogans like “Briscoe You Forgot Your Hood,” an obvious KKK insinuation. There is no evidence that Rep. Cain has had any ties whatsoever with the KKK.
It’s Day 5 and still no word from the self-proclaimed champion of women’s rights, the candidate that lectured America about the victims’ right “to be heard, to be believed.”
The list of people flabbergasted by the silence from Hillary Clinton regarding the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment allegations seems to be growing longer by the minute.
In perhaps the most amazing turn of events yet in this unfolding drama, Clinton’s own Vice Presidential nominee took the time to criticize her silence today during an appearance on CNN’s “New Day” morning show.
It turns out he had quite a bit to say to his former running mate.
Sen. Tim Kaine began by falsely insinuating that the campaign can’t return the money that was raised. He attempted to dismiss the notion by saying “well, the campaign is over.”
What about her promise that victims have the right to be heard, or a right to be believed? Apparently her answer, by way of her deafening silence, is, to borrow a term from the movie Minions, “Meh.”
After the New York Times revealed on Friday that Harvey Weinstein allegedly had been victimizing women for over 30 years, one would think Hillary would be overcome with grief and screeching out cries for justice.
After all, during her 2016 presidential campaign, one of Hillary’s own campaign ad’s entitled “Hillary’s Message to Survivors of Sexual Assault” told us to not “let anyone silence your voice.”
“You have a right to be heard,” she claimed. You have a right to be believed. We’re with you.”
