And the crowd goes wild! So unexpected, so very powerful. Can Trump survive this devastating takedown? Will DeNiro pay the ultimate price for his patriotic and Ciceronian philippic? We’ll just have to wait and see! (What a stupid time to be alive.)
He can’t get an NFL team to hire him, but former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick — whose “take a knee” protest against racism sparked a nationwide movement — was awarded another major human rights prize Saturday, this time from Amnesty International.
The speculation about a potential gubernatorial bid increased after several prominent Democrats in Ohio politics said in May that they had discussed with Springer the possibility of him launching a bid for governor as a Democrat.
The stultification of the mob continues:
An Off-Broadway play that paints an ominous picture of a post-President Trump America is shutting down in New York City after struggling to build an audience in the liberal city.
Building the Wall, written by Tony Award-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan, is closing a month early, the play’s producer Jeffrey Richards told the New York Times.
Schenkkan took to Twitter Friday to announce the play’s “final performances this weekend,” ahead of its original July 9 end date …
Poor, poor Kathy Griffin. She hired lawyer Lisa Bloom in order to defend herself from that mean old Trump family who has been “bullying” her. I mean, all she did was pose with the bloody prop head of Donald Trump? Why on earth would his family get all upset about it?
Lady Gaga asked that we “say a prayer America” and then blew Trump’s mind by standing outside one of his buildings with a sign that said “Love trumps hate.” This is a powerful message because Trump hates love. He was hoping that eventually he could wipe out all the love in America but Gaga was ensuring him that no matter how hard he tried, it would still be there. Where do these people get their views from—Dr. Seuss? He’s not the Lorax, Lady.
‘While it’s unclear if the bees in the Trump supporters’ bonnets were stirring because of the “orange,” “sexual-assaulting,” or “fake-college-starting monster” statements, loud booing from what the paper described as a “small minority of the arena crowd” began when Schumer commenced talking about gun control and politics.’
As Waters performed the Pink Floyd song Pigs (Three Different Ones), Mr Trump’s face appeared on the massive video screen above the stage. Meanwhile, a parade-sized balloon shaped like a pig floated above the audience.
Subsequent on-stage images depicted Mr Trump wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood.
The inflatable pig had Mr Trump’s face painted on the side, along with the words: “Ignorant, lying, racist, sexist pig”.
On the big screen, the message “Trump is a pig” was displayed.
Hardly anything is less likely to keep people reading than to mention an exciting evening in Toronto. But stick with me.
Because last Friday night in Toronto there was a debate (organised by the Munk debates, which can be watched in full here) on the great migration crisis which pitted Louise Arbour and Simon Schama against Nigel Farage and Mark Steyn. Regular readers will know my views of Simon Schama on this matter, so I was looking forward to watching this exchange in the hope of seeing him get what in technical debate-speak is known as his ‘arse handed to him on a plate’. And sure enough it came, courtesy of my fellow free-speecher, Mark Steyn – one of the few people around who knows free speech isn’t just something you talk about, but something you do.
The American comic Toby Muresianu put it best: last night’s Oscars felt like ‘three hours of being told to eat your vegetables’. If there has ever been a more grating gathering of smug, self-important asses keen to educate the TV-watching blob about Serious Stuff, then I’m struggling to remember it. Hollywood has clearly forgotten what its job is: to make us squeal and swoon, not raise our awareness about rape and paedophilia and the heat death of the planet and all the other misanthropic bilge the beautiful people spouted last night.
Jude Law’s security team was attacked and mugged by migrants when the cameras stopped after the Hollywood star left the jungle camp in Calais
So if the “refugees” are so peaceful why did Jude Law need a security team to begin with?
The answer is they wouldn’t be staying in his neighborhood, he lives in a ritzy pad.
But it’s ok for you proles to mix it up with them.
“I swear I am not antisemitic!”
Waters likened Israeli treatment of Palestinians to apartheid South Africa. “The way apartheid South Africa treated its black population, pretending they had some kind of autonomy, was a lie,” he said.
“Just as it is a lie now that there is any possibility under the current status quo of Palestinians achieving self-determination and achieving, at least, a rule of law where they can live and raise their children and start their own industries. This is an ancient, brilliant, artistic and very humane civilisation that is being destroyed in front of our eyes.”
A look at the persistent anti-Americanism of the celebrity who secretly interviewed the world’s biggest drug lord.
Four months ago, actor Sean Penn managed to secretly arrange and conduct an interview for Rolling Stone magazine with the infamous Mexican drug lord Joaquín Guzmán Loera—commonly known as “El Chapo”—who boasted that he traffics “more heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana than anybody else in the world.” The interview took place in a remote location, deep in the Mexican jungle, at a time when Guzmán, who had escaped from Mexico’s most secure prison three months earlier, was running from Mexican and American authorities. In the Rolling Stone article which was based upon that interview, Penn suggests that the United States has been complicit in Guzmán’s crimes: “[A]re we, the American public, not indeed complicit in what we demonize? We are the consumers [of drugs], and as such, we are complicit in every murder, and in every corruption of an institution’s ability to protect the quality of life for citizens of Mexico and the United States that comes as a result of our insatiable appetite for illicit narcotics.”
