The Explosive New Sexual Harassment Allegations Against Bill O’Reilly, Detailed


After complaining, a former Fox News host was banned from his show.

Commencing in February 2016, Bill O’Reilly (“O’Reilly”), whom Tantaros had considered to be a good friend and a person from whom she sought career guidance, started sexually harassing her by, inter alia, (a) asking her to come to stay with him on Long Island where it would be “very private,” and (b) telling her on more than one occasion that he could “see (her] as a wild girl,” and that he believed that she had a “wild side.” Fox News did take one action: plainly because of O’Reilly’s rumored prior sexual harassment issues and in recognition of Tantaros’s complaints, Brandi informed Cane that Tantaros would no longer be appearing on O’Reilly’s Fox News show, The O’Reilly Factor.

Trump crowd chants “lock her up!” “No,” Giuliani says. “Beat her. Beat her. Beat her. Beat her.

Rudy Giuliani, then New York City mayor, considered a run for a U.S. Senate seat in 2000 against Hillary Clinton. He did not run, and Clinton won a tough race against Rick Lazio. Now Giuliani is finally waging the New York–style "brutish bout under a white-hot spotlight" he'd envisioned 16 years ago, only this time on behalf of longtime friend and alter-ego Donald Trump, say Philip Rucker and Robert Costa at The Washington Post, and both Trump and Giuliani are "carrying personal grudges and considering no attack out of bounds."

Giuliani spoke at Trump's Republican National Convention, and he introduces Trump at private fundraisers and campaign rallies. Warming up for Trump at a rally in Akron, Ohio, on Monday, for example, Giuliani lashed out at Clinton for the situation in Libya and specifically the 2012 attack in Benghazi, accusing her of being "grossly negligent as secretary of state with the lives of our citizens." Rucker and Costa note what happened next:

As the crowd chanted, "Lock her up! Lock her up!," Giuliani waved his hands dismissively. "No," he shouted. "Beat her! Beat her! Beat her! Beat her! Beat her!"


Giuliani's supporters say that the former mayor and prosecutor is a big asset to Trump, especially as other big-name Republicans keep Trump at arm's length. One-time GOP New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino, for example, calls Giuliani "a respected litigator and leader" who can persuade "uninformed or low-informed people on how to vote." When The Washington Post noted Giuliani's insinuations about Clinton's health, Paladino replied: "What’s wrong with that? I think he's doing an excellent job in pointing out things about Hillary. How devious does a woman have to get?" You can read more on Giuliani's joyous grudge match against Clinton at The Washington Post. Peter Weber

Clinton to Kimmel re: debates "planning on drawing off my experiences from elementary school"


Clinton called the Republican nominee's health attack a "wacky strategy" and chalked it up to the "crazy things," said by Trump and his allies.

"It absolutely makes no sense," Clinton said. "I don’t go around questioning Donald Trump's health. I mean as far as I can tell, he’s as healthy as a horse."

At one point during the interview, Kimmel asked Clinton to open a jar of pickles to prove how healthy she is.



The two also discussed how the former former first lady was preparing to debate the billionaire businessman.

Clinton told the late-night host "I’m planning on drawing off my experiences from elementary school.”

A 12-year-old is running a Trump campaign office in Colorado:

"Ailes is a genius when it comes to TV, when it comes to communicating with people, but so is Trump"



By saying Ailes has no role with the campaign, Conway was threading a needle. Ailes is giving advice to Trump directly, according to reports from multiple outlets, including CNN, but not giving advice to the campaign.

The distinction is significant because Ailes is a subject of controversy. The former Fox News chief is a legend of television producing and Republican political campaigning. But he was forced out of his role last month amid a sexual harassment scandal. One former Fox News anchor, Gretchen Carlson, is suing him, and other women have come forward to accuse him of harassing behavior. He has denied the allegations.


CNNMoney reported that Ailes and Trump were together at Trump's golf course in New Jersey last weekend.
And The New York Times reported on Saturday that Ailes reviewed several potential Trump ads for the candidate.
Conway said Sunday that the two men are "old friends."

"Roger Ailes is a genius when it comes to television, when it comes to communicating with people, but so is Donald Trump," she said.

Former Trump Supporters DESTROY Him In Focus Group And It’s Brutal (VIDEO)



Donald Trump’s behavior over the last few months is turning off even those voters who backed him before, based on the results of a focus group aired on CBS this Sunday. While it seemed for a long time that Trump’s antics never shook the support he experienced during the Republican primary, the people interviewed by CBS seem to have killed that campaign myth.

snippets:

“He was my first choice. But just along the way, he has — I guess you can say he’s lost me,” one participant said in the focus group, which aired Sunday as a segment on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “I’m not saying there’s no chance of turning but he’s become outrageous. I mean, we all have thoughts, but I think he speaks without thinking.”


“When he initially began to run, he gave voice to a lot of the frustrations that I was feeling about how government is working or more to the point not working,” one man, Michael R., said. “But since then, he’s been running as a 12 year old and changes his positions every news cycle, so you don’t even know where he stands on the issues.”

"We only tip citizens"

https://img.washingtonpost.com/wp-apps/imrs.php?src=&w=1484

A couple dining at Jess' Lunch in Harrisonburg, Virginia, stiffed their waitress, 18-year-old Sadie Elledge, because she is Latina. Elledge, who was born in America and is a citizen, showed the receipt to her grandfather who posted it on Facebook. From there, it went viral.

"I was born here but I'm Mexican and Honduran," Elledge told WHSV, but the cheapskate couple never even spoke with Elledge. "They wouldn't talk to me. They would just nod their heads," she said.

It's ironic. Anti-immigrant voters are always whining about how people come here illegally to steal jobs and government benefits from citizens. Meanwhile, they're the ones greedily stiffing a hardworking citizen.

God bless America.
