Donald Trump Told a Really F**ked Up Lie About President Obama Today

In the grand scheme of things, this is not healthcare, it’s not tax reform, it’s not an assault on the rights of women, POC, or the LBGTQ community, but it still matters. It still matters when the President lies, and it still matters when he tries to make his predecessor look like the lazy, unfeeling, unsympathetic jackass that Donald Trump is himself.

To wit: President Trump has made no public mention of four special-forces soldiers killed in Niger 12 days ago. That matters. He was finally called on it today during a press conference, and here’s the answer he gave:

Listen: That’s a really shitty thing to say. It’s also a lie, and an appalling one, at that:

Trump was called on that lie in real time at the press conference, and sort of backtracked.

And then he lied again, and said that generals told him that lie.

That’s a fucked-up lie. It’s double fucked-up that he would lay the blame for that lie on his own military leaders.

What the hell is wrong with this man?

Kate Winslet Deliberately Didn’t Thank Harvey Weinstein In Her Oscars Acceptance Speech

wenn5254040

While I haven’t done the exact calculations, I believe that the second-most said word at any film awards show (right after a fake-surprised “Wow!“) is the name Harvey Weinstein. Everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to Jennifer Lawrence have thanked Harvey. But in 2009, Kate Winslet won her first Academy Award for The Reader, a film distributed by The Weinstein Company, and tradition states that she should have gushed over Harvey in her acceptance speech, but she didn’t. According to Kate, that was on purpose.

As a refresher, here’s Kate’s acceptance speech (it starts at the 6:40 mark).

After The New York Times published their exposé on Harvey Weinstein two weeks ago, many spoke up to condemn his behavior, including Kate Winslet. Kate applauded all the women coming forward with their stories and said that she heard the stories, but hoped they were just rumors.

Kate spoke with The Los Angeles Times on Sunday about leaving Harvey’s name out of her speech. Harvey’s behavior with Kate wasn’t the awful gross kind that a lot of people have been talking about lately (Kate says she somehow “dodged that bullet“). For her, it was more general asshole-ishness.

“That was deliberate. That was absolutely deliberate. I remember being told, ‘Make sure you thank Harvey if you win.’ And I remember turning around and saying, ‘No I won’t. No I won’t.’ And it was nothing to do with not being grateful. If people aren’t well-behaved, why would I thank him?

The fact that I’m never going to have to deal with Harvey Weinstein again as long as I live is one of the best things that’s ever happened and I’m sure the feeling is universal.”

Kate’s first film, Heavenly Creatures, was distributed by Miramax and that’s something that Harvey made sure to remind her of every chance he got. He was also allegedly a huge prick to her assistant.

“For my whole career, Harvey Weinstein, whenever I’ve bumped into him, he’d grab my arm and say, ‘Don’t forget who gave you your first movie.’ Like I owe him everything. Then later, with The Reader, same thing. ‘I’m gonna get you that Oscar nomination, I’m gonna get you a win, I’m gonna win for you.’

But that’s how he operated. He was bullying and nasty. Going on a business level, he was always very, very hard to deal with – he was rude. He used to call my female agent a [vulgar name for a woman] every time he spoke to her on the telephone.”

Kate adds that production on The Reader was a mess because of Harvey, and it was the last time she worked with him. That was on purpose too.

“I…stand up for myself and I don’t pander to what you’re supposed to do and what you’re not supposed to do. I won’t be pushed around or bullied by anyone. I was bullied as a child. Never again. Certainly not by Harvey Weinstein.”

That’s true, Kate doesn’t pander to what people think you’re supposed to do and not-do. Like proudly working with Woody Allen. But so help Woody if he does cross Kate; then he’s in big, big trouble. Kate doesn’t put up with any directly-related-to-her bullshit, buddy. “I happily ignored those allegations of sexual assault, but this time it’s personal!

Rose McGowan Says Lisa Bloom Offered Her Big Bucks To Defend Harvey Weinstein

3rd Annual Amber Rose SlutWalk

Remember that scene in the sixth season of Game Of Thrones when Daenerys becomes queen of the Dothraki by burning the whole fucking Khal house down? The Hollywood equivalent is going down right now with Rose McGowan.

We are all that annoying lady at the Costco exit checking for receipts, and Rose is more than happy to pull out a fistful. As we well know, the dozens of allegations of Harvey Weinstein caused him to run from Hollywood and NYC to rehab in Arizona.  In Hollywood, Harvey is even more loathed than gluten.

In their piece on Harvey, The New York Times alleged that he had settled a sexual harassment case with Rose McGowan for $ 100,000. Rose has since said Harvey raped her, and she’s been opening up more about other creeps in town. She alleged that Ben Affleck is a turd. She also said that Matt Damon was an enabler, and Harvey’s brother, Bob Weinstein, wasn’t in the dark about the whole matter like he has implied in the past. And now Rose has taken to Facebook to discuss the next name on her Kill Bill list: Lisa Bloom.

Lisa was Harvey’s lawyer, and everyone – including her mother Gloria Allred – were all, “Something in the buttermilk ain’t cleansince she usually represents alleged victims of sexual assault. Lisa went from defending Harvey to quitting his ass pretty soon after the article came out, but Rose isn’t buying it. BuzzFeed reports that Rose claims that Lisa wanted her to basically wear a “Team Harvey” t-shirt once the story dropped – and was willing to pay a ton for it:

“You know what is truth, Lisa? I feel like people should know that you’ve been calling my literary agent and saying there’d be money for me if I got on the ‘Harvey’s Changed’ bandwagon? You told her that I should care about HIS reputation. How HE has a family now and how HE has changed. Well, guess what? I’ve always had a family and that didn’t stop him from assaulting me.”

Rose says Lisa started with a $ 1 million offer and eventually went as high as $ 6 million. Rose turned it down. That’s damn impressive considering that I once took a $ 10 Blockbuster gift card in exchange for taking the fall for my brother who broke our mom’s ceramic turtle garden sprinkler. Lisa responded:

“I never called Rose McGowan’s literary agent… I don’t even know who her agent is. I never threatened Rose McGowan, nor offered her money, nor reached out to her. This is completely false. I have withdrawn from my representation of Harvey Weinstein and apologized for being involved in this. I am sorry for the pain Rose McGowan is in. But this is completely false.”

This whole shit is really making an impact on Hollywood. I mean, it’s moved a slew of dudes from the “potentially trashy” column over to the “sure as HAIL trashy” column. AND it’s made it where perennial press conference princess Lisa actually is loathing the attention. The world is seeing some fucked up shit, and I don’t really know how to help since it’s Monday and the world is kind of awful. So I’ll just follow Mieka’s lead and post this picture of a puppy and kitten napping together. See, there is some good out there:

Ravens Fan Caught Browsing Craigslist For Prostitutes During The Game

Just your casual NFL Sunday here for these Ravens fans. They probably woke up super early, got to the parking lot for a few hours of tailgating, got a little drunk, then went into the stadium to watch some football and look for some hookers on Craigslist.

Sounds like a perfect day to me.

We’re not sure what point in the game this was, but it looks like it’s during a TV timeout. That Ravens-Bears game was actually a barnburner that went to OT, so I’m guessing he made sure to time his Craigslist browsing strategically.

Once there’s a break in the action, you pop that phone back open and start looking for some HoT HoT S-e-x-y Sexy BruNeTTe BOMBSHELLs. And since the Ravens lost, you know he needed to blow off some steam afterwards.

Mayim Bialik Wrote A Piece About The Harvey Weinstein Situation And People Got Pissed

People’s Choice Awards 2017 - Press Room

The think pieces about Harvey Weinstein have begun, one of which has come courtesy of Hollywood long-timer and outspoken person Mayim Bialik. Mayim has been working in Hollywood since she was 11 years old, so she decided to come forward with her thoughts on being a feminist in a sexualized culture that benefits people like Harvey. It didn’t go over too well.

The New York Times published an op-ed piece written by Mayim on Friday titled: Being a Feminist in Harvey Weinstein’s World. Mayim talked about arriving in Hollywood as a “prominent-nosed, awkward, geeky, Jewish 11-year-old” and realizing from a young age that the industry sort-of ran on pretty. On top of being awkward, she also claims she dressed modestly and her mom told her to stay away from  gross grown men. As such, she claims she never really dealt with the Harveys of Hollywood.

“As a proud feminist with little desire to diet, get plastic surgery or hire a personal trainer, I have almost no personal experience with men asking me to meetings in their hotel rooms. Those of us in Hollywood who don’t represent an impossible standard of beauty have the ‘luxury’ of being overlooked and, in many cases, ignored by men in power unless we can make them money.”

Mayim further stressed that people can’t be “naïve” about the culture we live in (ie. one in which sex sells or books you gigs). She ended by saying that people who aren’t a “perfect 10” like herself can rest assured that someone out there finds them stunning, irresistible, and worthy of attention. She could have ended there, but unfortunately she steered the train into problematic junction by adding: “The best part is you don’t have to go to a hotel room or a casting couch to find them.

The Washington Post pointed out that Mayim’s op-ed got a lot of bad feedback. Some people accused Blossom of victim-blaming, and suggesting women have the responsibility in not getting sexually assaulted or harassed. Mayim didn’t understand why people were so pissed off, and she addressed all criticism on Twitter. Mayim swears her intention wasn’t to victim blame.

As she said, Mayim did a Facebook live event this morning. Mayim, who claims she was staying off social media, said it had been brought to her attention that people thought she was implying that you could protect yourself from sexual assault by the clothing you wear or behavior you exhibit. She says she’s sorry for that. Again, not her intention. She says she was speaking to her experience and not trying to make a broad generalization about sexual assault.

“I’m a human being, and there’s a lot that I’ve chosen not to share, but absolutely I am deeply, deeply hurt if any women who has been assaulted – or man – thinks that in any way I was victim-blaming.

What I’m talking about specifically, is the culture of Hollywood, the way that women are encouraged to present themselves, and the way that men encourage women to present themselves. For me, I feel protected in my industry more when I keep parts of me private than if I did not do that.

That may not be true for all women. I’m not saying that makes me immune to abuse or assault. I’m not saying that the way any woman dresses holds them responsible for being assaulted.”

Oh Mayim, of course you can only speak to your own experiences. But in Harvey Weinstein’s case, I don’t know if specific clothing choices would have mattered. What am I saying? Of course clothing wouldn’t have mattered. Modest, immodest, whatever. Harvey Weinstein probably would have taken a meeting with someone dressed in the Phillie Phanatic costume if he had even the most remote suspicion that there were boobs somewhere underneath.

Brett Hundley’s Wife is Dawnielle Baucham

You know things aren’t going well in Packerland when we’re writing up a post on the backup quarterback’s wife, but here we are. Aaron Rodgers might be done for the season with a broken collarbone, and it appears that it will be Brett Hundley’s show at quarterback much to the dismay of Kaepernick fans.


Hundley, of course, played three seasons at UCLA before getting drafted in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He played pretty well in the preseason but obviously had some issues on Sunday getting thrown into the fire against a stout Vikings defense. The UCLA product should find more success in Week 7 against the Saints.

As for Hundley’s personal life, he’s happily married to Dawnielle Baucham, who also attended UCLA and graduated with a major in Philosophy. She’s now an aspiring singer under the name Dionne Anylahdetails from her site:

Dionne sets goals and believes in turning dreams into reality. Her dreams are set out to be a singer, songwriter, performer, and humanitarian/philanthropist. She has spoken into existence that she will become just that through hardwork and dedication.

<Brett and Dawnielle celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary this past July:

You’ll Totally Relate to the Way Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas First Met

Joe Jonas popped the question to Sophie Turner over the weekend, and their engagement has sparked renewed interest in their love story, specifically how they met. While most of us are probably thinking their first meeting was some extravagant, romantic affair, Sophie and Joe actually met through mutual friends. While not much else is known about how they were introduced, Sophie told Marie Claire earlier this month that she and Joe have already hit another important milestone: meeting each other’s parents. Sophie revealed that Joe met her parents at a pub in London, while she met Joe’s family during a ski trip.

Sophie and Joe first got together in 2016, and the two have shared several sweet moments together since then. The only question left is: which Game of Thrones star will walk down the aisle first? Sophie or Kit Harington? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Urban Meyer’s Wife Gives Some Thoughts On Colin Kaepernick, Says She’d Rather Have Tebow

Instagram Photo

These days you can’t go two seconds without hearing somebody’s opinion on Collin Kaepernick — but you all know that. It’s exhausting, we’ve been discussing this issue for over a year and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon, especially now that Kaep has filed a grievance against the NFL for collusion.

The joke we always make is “don’t go to Facebook if you’re trying to avoid hearing your old high school classmates opining on social issues”, but we’ve gotten to the point now where we can say the same about Twitter. Everybody is talking about this shit, and that includes Urban Meyer’s wife, Shelley, for some reason.

She chimed in the on the newest Kaepernick report yesterday with this tweet. Nothing crazy, just her opinion.

But here’s the best part. Somebody else then chimed in saying they’d rather have Tim Tebow and she agreed! In case you forgot, he plays baseball now.

Now I just have to see an NFL team sign Tebow before Kaepernick because I want to watch the world burn.

Michael Assbender And Alicia Vikander Got Married In Ibiza

wenn29461644

Over the weekend, the Spanish coastguard got reports of an albino Loch Ness Monster in the Mediterranean Sea, and that could mean only one of two things. Jon Hamm was swimming in the Mediterranean Sea this past weekend, or Michael Fassbender was. It was the second one, but Assbender wasn’t only in Ibiza to take his white crotch Nessie for a dip in the sea, he was also there to become a husband for the first time.

It’s been rumored for weeks that 40-year-old Michael Fassbender and 29-year-old Alicia Vikander were going to get married in Ibiza sometime in October after being together for around 3 years. Both People and E! News says the wedding happened on Saturday in front of family and friends, including Steve McQueen (the director of Shame, not the actor who died in 1980). Because they got married in Ibiza, you’d think that their wedding clothes were made of foam, and instead of exchanging vows, they dropped molly as David Guetta blew a party horn while shouting, “Let me hear you people screeeeeam!” But apparently, they got married at the La Granja farmstead resort. Or if you ask a hardcore Fassbender fan on Tumblr, they signed their relationship contract at the La Granja farmstead resort.

The Daily Mail posted pictures from Sunday of Alicia and Assbender (who is either on molly, or doing a Jim Carrey impersonation, or both) wearing rings on their married fingers while hanging out with friends and family.

Reps for Assbender and Alicia haven’t said anything about their wedding, and they’ll probably never confirm. Only thirsty bottom shelf celeb whores who are desperate for attention release statements about their wedding. Real movie stars don’t need the attention and so they don’t release shit. Instead, they give paparazzi the exact GPS coordinates of where they’ll casually “flash” their new wedding rings.

Meet Clippers Spirit Dancer Courtney Watts

The buzz for the Lakers and Lonzo Ball is out of control, but it’s worth reminding everyone LA’s other basketball franchise has some things going for them.

No. The Clippers probably won’t make it out of the second round this year, but all signs point towards a pretty fun season. Milos Teodosic is a passing god who’s revitalized Lob City, Blake Griffin looks healthy (for now), and they finally have a wing in Danillo Gallinari. The Clippers will easily be worth the discounted post-Chris Paul price of admission.

And if the players aren’t enough go ahead and meet Courtney Watts, who will be entering her second season with the Clippers Spirit dance team. She’s from Australia and cheered for a number of rugby teams before making the big move to LA last year:
