Claws OUT! Rose McGowan slams ‘fake 1’ Alyssa Milano for defending Weinstein’s wife (bonus Streep slam)

Sun, 12/10/2017 - 13:39

Mere days after TIME magazine declared #MeToo as their so-called person of the year, Alyssa Milano was interviewed about her friend (and Weinstein’s estranged wife), Georgina Chapman.

From Apple News:

“Georgina is doing very well,” Milano told Today‘s Megyn Kelly on Tuesday. “She’s an amazing mother. She’s an amazing woman, and I think her priority right now is focusing on how to raise those two children to the best of her capacity given the situation.”

Pretty sure Rose McGowan isn’t exactly worried about how Chapman, a woman who many feel enabled Weinstein for years and years, is doing.

You make me want to vomit. You actually gave me a body flashback. Well done, fake one – People https://t.co/XCdTWyp4dd

— rose mcgowan (@rosemcgowan) December 8, 2017

Well done, fake one.

Brutal.

Today @Alyssa_Milano stood in front of a packed house IN TEARS and called you her friend and her costar. Her first #MeToo posting was in support of YOU!! The same way she is supporting her friend @georginachapman THAT IS WHAT FRIENDS DO! I stand in support of my friend Alyssa♥️

— Rena Sofer (@RenaSofer) December 9, 2017

Oh, poor Alyssa.

I'm sorry to inform you, but that is not correct. She stood for nothing and nobody but her generic phony political speech because she is still under his payroll as host of Project Runway Allstars.

— The Morning Spew (@TheMorningSpew) December 9, 2017

Truth hurts.

Leaving @rosemcgowan off the @TIME cover is one of the biggest snubs of all time.

— Lance Cooper (@804StreetMedia) December 8, 2017

If Rose hadn’t come out in the epic fashion she did who knows what may or may not have come out about the predators in Hollywood, the media and in DC.

I'm saying Georgina Champan's company was 100% funded by Weinstein money. No one knew who she was in the fashion world before she married him.
I'm saying Weinstein bullied abused women to wear his wife's clothing line.
I'm saying she knew who and want she married and why.

— KillingMyCareer (@MelaynaLokosky) December 8, 2017

Seems people keep forgetting this tidbit, that not only was Chapman perhaps an enabler but she literally profited from her marriage to Weinstein when he would force women to wear her clothes.

And no matter how many women (and men) were complaining at Rose for calling Alyssa out, we don’t think she’s going to hug it out with the slacktivist anytime soon:

Alyssa, maybe you and Georgina can call up Camille Cosby

Ouch.

Had to google who Camille Cosby is, to get your words. Now I understand your hate. I´m so sorry, Rose. I can´t even imagine your pain.
But I don´t think Alyssa is a bad person – after all, she was the one who triggered the #MeToo movement, she may be naive.

— Visky ile Dean (@_SarahManning__) December 8, 2017

Actually no, Alyssa is not the one who triggered the movement (and these people wonder why Rose is so angry with her):

FAKE NEWS fail! Another CNN Trump ‘bombshell’ explodes in their faces; Updated

Fri, 12/08/2017 - 19:06

CNN reported exclusively that Donald Trump Jr. tweeted about Hillary Clinton and Wikileaks on the same day he supposedly was sent info by Wikileaks, which CNN said was September 4th. CNN had “bombshell” on the brain:

Exclusive: Donald Trump, Trump Jr. and others in the Trump Organization got an email in September 2016 offering a decryption key and link for hacked WikiLeaks documents https://t.co/hEJLhtiYKm pic.twitter.com/DCCMNhtzge

— CNN (@CNN) December 8, 2017

New @CNN Exclusive: Candidate Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr. & others in the Trump Org. received email in Sept. 2016 offering a decryption key & website address for hacked WikiLeaks documents, according to email provided to congressional investigators https://t.co/wps4nnj21d pic.twitter.com/5DDbs9Pvjp

— David Wright (@DavidWright_CNN) December 8, 2017

And the media (and The Resistance) were off and running:

Trump Jr. first tweeted about WikiLeaks on same day he was offered access to hacked WikiLeaks documents https://t.co/vCQ6uD13sl pic.twitter.com/Oq8G2e9gSg

— The Hill (@thehill) December 8, 2017

I'm sure this is just a big coincidence but the day that Trump Jr. was sent a Wikileaks encryption key was the first day he ever tweeted about Wikileaks https://t.co/hhQBUuAjPj pic.twitter.com/YcGobSCiLj

— Judd Legum (@JuddLegum) December 8, 2017

Whoa. If the Trump camp had access to stolen emails in advance and guided Wikileaks' activity last fall, that would amount to a criminal conspiracyhttps://t.co/OI3jZ9D9E8

— Brian Fallon (@brianefallon) December 8, 2017

Just one problem. CNN didn’t have the dates correct, meaning Trump Jr’s tweet was many days before the Wikileaks email:

BREAKING: That WikiLeaks email was actually from Sept. 14, not Sept. 4 — which means it is far less significant https://t.co/kMON9rQT7m

— Aaron Blake (@AaronBlake) December 8, 2017

“Far less significant” to say the least.

So CNN misreported the date of the Wikileaks email that @DonaldJTrumpJr received, meaning that the entire point of the story —
that the campaign might have gotten advance warning of the leaks — is wrong. Wow. https://t.co/oiXngwHZAq

*SNICKER* Iowahawk MOCKS Al Franken’s self-serving resignation speech, and it’s PERFECT

Fri, 12/08/2017 - 18:45

Yesterday, as soon-not-to-be-a Senator Al Franken stood in front of the world and gave a fairly pathetic and absolutely self-serving resignation speech many people took notice of a few things he said … or didn’t say. He didn’t give a timeframe for when he would actually step down, he made a dig (or five) at Trump, and he slammed the women who accused him.

All things considered, it was a fairly lame-ass resignation which was quickly followed by Democrats pretending they have the moral authority when it comes to perverts even though they’ve been protecting some ICONS for decades.

Iowahawk mocked Franken PERFECTLY:

I am angered by these bogus claims of so-called "liquor store truck crashes." The record shows no one has done more for liquor stores than me. So today, I am announcing I will give up my drivers license at some time in the future to be determined.

— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) December 8, 2017

Franken thinks no one has done more for women than he has; sounds a little like Weinstein who started ranting about how he’d take on the NRA when it came out that he was sexually assaulting houseplants all across the country.

You reserve the right to not give up said license if a particular store gets some stock of Balcones single malt.

— John Commodore Barry (@ShrinkGov) December 8, 2017

At some point, he’ll pay the consequences for his actions.

Keep an eye on Franken if Moore gets elected, watch how quickly he decides he shouldn’t resign after all.

Courage.

— Bad Wolf (@ericbjediknight) December 8, 2017

What a hero, right?

The records are blurred and do not show it the way I remember the liquor store pass out

— RG (@rg_real) December 8, 2017

This is not how he remembers running into liquor stores with his truck and he’s sorry those liquor stores remember it differently.

Please tell me that this is not just a running gag, and that you actually ran into a liquor store at some point. You could personally salvage the God awful year that has been 2017 for me.

— Matt Bennett (@mattben10) December 8, 2017

Dude, you never know. Iowahawk is CRAZY that way.

'I regret that certain plate glass windows are apparently disturbed by what were just innocent parking mistakes, to be expected in strip malls and I don't recall combat parking and shattering them, but of course I grieve for their brokenness.'

Justice Dept. launches investigation into Planned Parenthood, sale of fetal tissue

Fox News is reporting that the U.S. Justice Department has launched an investigation into Planned Parenthood and the sale of fetal tissue.

Brooke Singman and Jake Gibson report:

The Justice Department has launched a federal investigation into Planned Parenthood’s practices and the sale of fetal tissue.

In a letter first obtained by Fox News, Justice Department Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Stephen Boyd formally requested unredacted documents from the Senate Judiciary Committee, the same panel that led the congressional probe into the women’s health organization.

The letter, sent to [Committee Chairman Chuck] Grassley and [Ranking Member Dianne] Feinstein on Thursday, is a rare confirmation by the Justice Department of a federal investigation.

Rep. John Lewis refuses to attend civil rights museum opening with President Trump in attendance https://t.co/MIydqTb46R

— TIME (@TIME) December 7, 2017

More:

U.S. Rep John Lewis says he won’t speak at the opening of Mississippi civil rights and history museums, calling it intolerable that President Donald Trump will attend.

Lewis made the announcement Thursday. The Georgia Democrat and civil rights icon helped organize the 1964 Freedom Summer targeting segregation in Mississippi.

The Saturday ceremony marks Mississippi’s bicentennial of admission into the union. But what was intended as a moment of racial unity and atonement in the state with the largest share of African-Americans is descending into racial and partisan strife after Republican Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant invited fellow Republican Trump to attend.

Civil rights legend @RepJohnLewis declines to attend the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum due to Trump's presence, calling it "an insult to the people portrayed in this civil rights museum."

Weak AF: Hampshire College canceled gun advocate Antonia Okafor’s speech just HOURS before event

Thu, 12/07/2017 - 19:12

Gun activist, and Conservative badass, Antonia Okafor was all set to speak at Hampshire College when the event was magically canceled just hours before her speech was scheduled to begin.

"Although the group hosting the event had previously received email approval, an administrator waited until the day of the event to deny a "contract request form," saying the Second Amendment "is a very controversial subject." #HampshireHatesFreedom https://t.co/GYP68erk2C

— Antonia Okafor (@antonia_okafor) December 7, 2017

From Campus Reform:

Rahim Hirani, president of Junoon, received approval to host the event on Monday, according to an email thread obtained by Campus Reform. But at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, as Okafor was already on her way to campus, the school reversed course.

“The Contract Request Form that was submitted was denied because it did not have complete information about the presenter,” Carolyn Strycharz, director of campus leadership, informed Hirani by email, going on to call the very nature of the event “controversial.”

Of course, the application was filled out but that didn’t stop them from releasing this lame apology:

Hampshire College sincerely apologizes to @antonia_okafor for canceling your speech tonight that was to have been held on our campus. Here is our full public apology and statement: https://t.co/0Gygr0SQPN

— Hampshire College (@hampshirecolg) December 7, 2017

Ummm, wow.

Seems the President of Hampshire College then contacted Antonia to take full responsibility for the cancellation and stated it shouldn’t have happened.

CORRECTION: The President of Hampshire College just called me directly and told me that they take "full responsibility" for the mistake and should NOT have canceled. I told them they must send out another apology where they rescind their blame of the student involved. They have.

— Antonia Okafor (@antonia_okafor) December 7, 2017

Hampshire College's NEW apology. An actual one. Not one that blames the student for an error he did not make. https://t.co/0XdmqcI9kw

— Antonia Okafor (@antonia_okafor) December 7, 2017

Took ’em long enough.

Why on Earth would any college find a strong, black, Conservative female and gun advocate to be controversial?

Wait, don’t answer that.

When the 1st Amendment is denied to a black female Conservative who promotes the 2nd Amendment. https://t.co/VuBTLCrTwC@antonia_okafor

WATCH: Resigning Al Franken takes parting swipe at Trump on way out door

Thu, 12/07/2017 - 17:39

As Twitchy has reported, Sen. Al Franken took to the Senate floor today to announce that he’d be resigning in a matter of weeks. Dozens of Democrats had called for his resignation, but Franken sounded defiant in regards to the accusations against him:

Sen. Al Franken: "Some of the allegations against me are simply not true. Others I remember differently." https://t.co/jqRcUgBJsV pic.twitter.com/IOK1S1NRFZ

Franken managed to use the opportunity of his own resignation after several harassment allegations to slam both President Trump and GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore:

Girl POWER! Jennifer Lawrence brags she’ll throw a drink in Trump’s face, trips over THIS pic

Thu, 12/07/2017 - 17:19

Seems Jennifer Lawrence is all set to throw a martini in the face of the president because of girl power and stuff.

Jennifer Lawrence: If I meet Trump, it'll end with "a martini to the face" https://t.co/oLw19PQaWF pic.twitter.com/VOKr2fD6Wg

— The Hill (@thehill) December 6, 2017

Hey, don’t look at us, we just work here man.

From The Hill:

Lawrence said in 2015 that a Trump presidency would be “the end of the world.” But earlier this year, she preached unity, telling Vogue that the country needs to come together because “we can’t continue this divide and anger.”

While the 27-year-old Oscar winner says she’s never come face-to-face with Trump, she told Winfrey she’d “definitely” be prepared if the opportunity presented itself.

“I’ve got a pretty good speech,” Lawrence said, adding with a laugh that “it ends with a martini to the face.”

So tough.

She does realize that throwing a drink in the president’s face would probably end up with her being arrested, right?

Oh and there’s this:

So sad. So much beauty and talent. Apparently there is a problem with the magnetic field in Hollywood that screws up her moral compass.

Of course, they’d have to have a moral compass in the first place for it to be screwed up but fair point.

Brave! Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand still ‘very troubled’ about Al Franken, but won’t say he should resign

Tue, 12/05/2017 - 21:29

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is a self-styled champion of women, and yet she gets it wrong so much of the time.

At the Women in the World Conference in 2015, she was asked about rape hoaxes like the story that was published and then retracted by Rolling Stone magazine. She answered, “Well, I hope it’s just putting more of a spotlight on the problem” — not the problem of hoaxes, you see, but of sexual assault. Sure, some young men’s lives might have been destroyed by a false accusation of rape, but the real concern for Gillibrand was the sexual assault that never actually happened.

So it’s not surprising that Gillibrand, questioned about Sen. Al Franken at Politico’s “Women Rule” event, would punt on the question if she’d ask him to resign. Check out this convoluted answer which isn’t an answer at all, though she’s still troubled by the allegations.

Would @SenGillibrand ask @SenFranken to resign? "I am not going to say that today. But it is something I’m very troubled about" #WomenRule pic.twitter.com/PYUMJlOUQ2

— POLITICO Live (@POLITICOLive) December 5, 2017

Gillibrand even draws a line, saying that all sexual misconduct, from assault to groping, is unacceptable. And yet, she can’t answer when asked about Franken, photographed groping a sleeping woman.

Tue, 12/05/2017 - 20:57

Well, this should come as a shock to … absolutely no one:

NEW YORK (AP) — Former employees of top editor for the National Enquirer, Us Weekly and other major gossip publications say he openly described his sexual partners in the newsroom, discussed female employees' sex lives and forced women to watch or listen to pornographic material.

— Meg Kinnard (@MegKinnardAP) December 5, 2017

MORE: 12 former employees told AP the behavior by Dylan Howard, currently the chief content officer of American Media Inc., occurred while he was running the company's Los Angeles office. Howard's alleged conduct led to an internal inquiry in 2012 by an outside consultant.

Some of Howard’s alleged greatest hits, from the AP:

“The behavior that Dylan displayed and the way he was and the way the company dealt with it — I just think that it has to be made public because it’s completely unacceptable,” said Maxine “Max” Page, a former senior editor at RadarOnline. She complained to the human resources department about Howard’s behavior on behalf of two female reporters.

Howard made inappropriate comments to and about one of those women, Page and six other ex-employees said. Howard told employees in the newsroom he wanted to create a Facebook account on behalf of the woman’s vagina, commented on her sex life and forced her and other female employees to either watch or listen to graphic recordings of sex involving celebrities despite there being no professional rationale for doing so, they said.

A former senior editor recalled Howard wrongly claimed during a newsroom meeting that the woman had had sex with a journalism source and praised her for it, saying she needed to “do what you need” to get a story.

Well, gosh.

Jake Tapper dings MSM for congratulating selves on ‘ridding our newsrooms of high profile sexual predators’

Tue, 12/05/2017 - 20:05

This is a good mini-thread from CNN’s Jake Tapper dinging the MSM for its collective coverage of sexual predators in their midst:

Thread: i don’t think news media should pat ourselves too hard on the back for ridding our newsrooms of high profile sexual predators. With few exceptions (@NPR most notably) the reporting that felled the accused was by different outlets. Big scoops in our midsts — ignored. 1/

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) December 5, 2017

2/ NYT reported on O’Reilly — not Fox. @gabrielsherman and @GretchenCarlson brought down Ailes — not Fox. WaPo reported on Charlie Rose — not CBS. CNN’s @oliverdarcy reported on Halperin — not NBC or ABC. NYT and Variety were working on pieces about Lauer before NBC took action.

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) December 5, 2017

3/ that there has been a “reckoning” (copyright @NorahODonnell) in our industry perhaps more so than any other is great. But most of the offenders were fired only after rival outlets reported on them. #realkeeping

-fin-

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) December 5, 2017

And actually, it was the Washington Post that first exposed NPR:

It was @washingtonpost that broke @NPR story. But one thing @NPR did was interview CEO. @WNYC is currently interviewing their CEO on air. Other news orgs should do the same – audience deserves it.

— Madhulika Sikka (@madhulikasikka) December 5, 2017

Which actually helps Tapper’s argument:

I stand corrected — am told WaPo originally broke first NPR story. which proves my point even further! but kudos to NPR for covering it as thoroughly as they have — https://t.co/bIq2JpXcyH

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) December 5, 2017

Bonus — It was Vox that outed the NYT’s Glenn Thrush:

This is a good point and shows reporters can't be too sanctimonious about this stuff. Also @voxdotcom broke Thrush. https://t.co/XFSXfJOqZ6

ALL YOUR FAULT! Samantha Bee writer TIRADES at ‘white people’ who voted 3rd party over Hillary

Tue, 12/05/2017 - 19:18

Nice headline, The Hill.

House GOP education bill would tie funding for historically black schools to graduation rate https://t.co/IHHyh2CG86 pic.twitter.com/b3yY5t6RmT

— The Hill (@thehill) December 4, 2017

They knew their readers would see this headline and FLIP THEIR SHIZNIT; add a picture of blue-eyed, white boy Paul Ryan and someone was bound to go full crazy about the funding being tied to graduation.

From The Hill:

The House Republican version of the updated Higher Education Act would tie funding for minority-serving institutions to graduation or transfer rates.

The bill would require minority-serving institutions, such as historically black colleges and universities, to graduate or transfer at least 25 percent of students to maintain their funding.

Not that this isn’t typical of funding for all schools but we digress … and why wouldn’t government ask for results when funding these public schools hand over fist?

Eh, the headline got a writer for Samantha Bee all sorts of riled up.

White people will never be able to apologize enough for voting third party or not at all to make up for this shit right here.

But enjoy your schools that will continue to be funded withou hoops to jump through along with everything else. https://t.co/Oo8Uco8z4t

Putting Sam Seder in context: Everyone was tweeting about Roman Polanski on Sept. 29, 2009

Tue, 12/05/2017 - 18:59

As we told you, Twitter erupted over the news that MSNBC will not renew the contract of liberal political contributor Sam Seder, reportedly over this now-deleted tweet about Roman Polanski from Sept. 29, 2009:

According to Seder, “the tweet was satirical and was intended to show his disgust with liberals at the time who were attempting to apologize for Polanksi’s past behavior.”

Seder made a second reference to Polanski on the 29th sounds satirical as well:

I've been reviewing Polanski's IMDB.com page- cannot believe "they" want to hold him accountable for raping a 13 yr old.

— Sam Seder (@SamSeder) October 1, 2009

Keep in mind, September 29, 2009, was one of those days on Twitter where everyone was tweeting about the same topic, which in this case was Roman Polanski.

For starters, Whoopi Goldberg had said on “The View” on September 28 that Polanski didn’t “rape-rape” the 13-year-old victim:

Thank god I didn't watch "The View." Pro-Polanski is untenable. RT @Awl Rape-Rape Is The REALLY Bad One, Right? http://www.theawl.com/13903

— Kate Aurthur (@KateAurthur) September 28, 2009

Whoopi Goldberg says Roman Polanski's drug/alcohol fueled rape of a 13 yr old wasn't "rape-rape." Disgusting. NOW…where are u?

— Rory Cooper (@rorycooper) September 29, 2009

Which certainly set conservatives off:

"Rape rape." Yay feminism! http://bit.ly/3FPITv

What's the difference between *rape* and *rape rape* Whoopi? Is that a legal distinction?

— Jim "Jim" Jamitis (@anthropocon) September 29, 2009

They say conservatives are woman-haters and libs progressive, but it's the liberals who excuse Polanski for rape.

RT @JTlol Maybe Hollywood would be okay with Roman Polanski's arrest if we told them he's against ObamaCare. #iamthemob

— Caleb Howe (@CalebHowe) September 29, 2009

And on September 29, Twitter was talking about Hollywood scumbags like Woody Allen and Harvey Weinstein who were defending the child rapist:

woody allen defending roman polanski? PERVERT SHARK JUMP NOW IN PROGRESS

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) September 29, 2009

Polanski should go to jail bc his crime is horrific & because our gov can't allow people to think they can just run away from convictions.

And on that same day, 100+ celebrities signed a petition urging Swiss authorities to release Polanski from custody (the director was arrested earlier in the week):
