Trump In Talks To Make ‘The Apprentice: White House’ – REPORT – Perez Hilton

One of the most enduring conspiracy theories about the Donald Trump presidency is that the Unindicted-Co-Conspirator-In-Chief never actually wanted to be president in the first place. Essentially, the plot goes Trump makes a ton of waves running for office, boasting nonstop about how he has secret ways to fix everything (without ever actually giving anyone firm descriptions of policies). He complains the “rigged” Washington system will never let him win, so when he loses he can blame the swamp and continue to rail against whoever’s in the White House — maybe even with his own Fox News-like 24 hour news network called Trump TV. Video: Trump Jr’s Embarrassing Appearance On ‘The View’ According to this theory the problem was actually that he won, …

Watergate to Ukraine: how TV will dictate Trump’s impeachment fate

As public hearings loom, one Nixon biographer remembers a time the system worked but few are sure it will again We are beginning these hearings today in an atmosphere of the utmost gravity a mood of incredulity has prevailed among our populace, and it is the constitutional duty of this committee to act expeditiously to allay the fears being expressed by the citizenry, and to establish the factual bases upon which these fears have been founded. Those were the begin public impeachment hearings regarding Donald Trump and his attempt to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political rivals. Televised hearings will be an opportunity for the American people to evaluate the witnesses for themselves, Adam Schiff, chairman of the House intelligence …

Lurching and rambling, Boris Johnson is in charge. But hes lost control | Marina Hyde

Its been a taboo-busting start to the Tories election campaign. But the spectacle of Boris Johnson is the most grotesque of all, says Guardian columnist Marina Hyde The spectacle of Boris Johnson in a suit is increasingly disconcerting. Everything the prime minister says would make much more sense if he was wearing just his pants and a three-day-old dressing gown, and slurring, I promise you Ill CHANGE at one of the mothers of his children. It goes without saying that he might win a majority. Then again, he might not. Its certainly been quite a taboo-busting start to the Conservatives election campaign, featuring monstrous rape trials, and the blithe suggestion that Jeremy Corbyn might literally The Aristocrats! Either way, it …

Does America need another billionaire in the 2020 race? Bloomberg thinks so | Cas Mudde

Bloomberg is worried that no one in the current crop of Democratic candidates is well positioned to defeat Donald Trump. But is he? There is nothing bigger than the ego of a rich, old, white man. And thus, yet another billionaire without popular support is about to enter the 2020 presidential race. After Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg, a former Republican who is allegedly worth $52bn, is worried that no one in the current crop of Democratic candidates is well positioned to defeat Donald Trump. While this might be true, there is no reason to assume Bloomberg himself is either. Of course, his candidacy does not come as a surprise. Since 2008 there has not been a presidential election without speculation of …

Emma Watson: Star failing to be normal in a fantasy world

The actor wants to use her fame for good. But her controversial comments about self-partnering may not have helped her A year after filming wrapped on the final instalment of Harry Potter, the actress Helen McCrory, who played the dark witch Narcissa Malfoy, said that so often when you meet child actors theyre weird, theyre freaks.

Trump Rips California Governor For ‘Terrible’ Forest Management As Wildfires Rage

Donald Trump on Sunday slammed California Gov. wildfires and appeared to threaten to cut federal funding as firefighters battled blazes on several fronts. The correct term is firebreak: a gap in vegetation that serves as a barrier against the spread of flames. In a statement sent to HuffPost, Newsom took aim at Trump’s refusals to take action against global warming, which the governor cited as a cause for the blazes. As of Sunday, 11 fires continued to burn in California, though most were more than 70% contained,  One of the latest blazes broke out Thursday night in Ventura County as Santa Ana winds whipped through the state’s southern region. As of Sunday morning, it had burned through more than 9,400 acres …

Facebook Rebrands to FACEBOOK to Appear Less Toxic | Betches

It would seem the company has decided to give themselves this face-lift because of all the negative press it’s been receiving since, you know, ruining an election. The fact that Mark Zuckerberg is standing firm in his conviction that politicians should be able to purchase the right to lie to voters (aka allow lies in political ads) also likely prompted the change.  Perhaps because of the toxicity associated with “Facebook,” the name change seems designed to differentiate Facebook the platform from Facebook the company — a company that’s already made up of smaller parts (Instagram, What’sApp) — and signal to candidates threatening to break it up that it is, already, broken up. The company stated in a press release yesterday: …

An Oscars ban for a Nigerian film shows the Academy still doesnt get it on race | Afua Hirsch

Excluding Lionheart for using English shows Africans are still expected to satisfy American ideas of authenticity, says Guardian columnist Afua Hirsch The penny about the USs worldview dropped for me when I recently interviewed a highly educated, accomplished, politically and racially literate American. I mentioned something about the British empire and he looked at me blankly. What is that exactly? he asked. This isnt a criticism of individual Americans; many British people themselves dont know their own imperial history. Its a feature of what is taught in schools and purveyed in the media, which is myopic. But news about the 2020 Oscars this week did bring that particular exchange back to mind. The Academy was considering a Nollywood film industry …

If the government tracks womens periods, why not track male ejaculation, too? | Arwa Mahdawi

Missouri is so concerned about womens health it keeps spreadsheets of dates of Planned Parenthood patients periods Sign up for The week in patriarchy, a newsletter on feminism and sexism sent every Saturday. openly testified about them on Tuesday. Meanwhile Planned Parenthood and the doctors at the clinic had no idea these spreadsheets existed and were being used in this manner. Outrage rightly ensued.

The health department noted in a statement, the spreadsheet controversy shadows cut a same-sex love scene as well as the word lesbian from its in-flight version of the movie Booksmart. It also reportedly sponsored …

Twitters political ads ban is a distraction from the real problem with platforms

Sometimes it feels as if Internet platforms are turning everything upside down, from politics to publishing, culture to commerce, and of course swapping truth for lies. This week’s bizarro reversal was the vista of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, a tech CEO famed for being entirely behind the moral curve of understanding what his product is platforming (i.e. nazis), providing an impromptu ‘tweet storm’ in political speech ethics. Actually he was schooling Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg — another techbro renowned for his special disconnect with the real world, despite running a massive free propaganda empire with vast power to influence other people’s lives — in taking a stand for the good of democracy and society. So not exactly a full reverse then. In …

Don’t Hold Your Breath By Madhuri Sathish Nov 1, 2019 On Oct. 31, the House of Representatives voted to formalize its impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Lawmakers have a long road ahead of them before they can actually impeach the president. The Oct. 31 House vote was not an impeachment vote. Instead, it was the first formal vote in the impeachment process — a vote on how the rest of the process would function. Moving …
