100 Naked Women Will Welcome Donald Trump to the Republican National Convention ​

100 Naked Women Will Welcome Donald Trump to the Republican National Convention
​Artist Spencer Tunick discusses his art installation near the Quicken Loans Arena​ in July.

At the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this July, 100 naked women will stand facing the Quicken Loans Arena holding large, round mirrors. They'll be part of artist Spencer Tunick's latest large-scale art installation: "Everything She Says Means Everything.

Tunick says Donald Trump provides the perfect backdrop:

"I could never have imagined there would be such a heightened attention to the male-versus-female dynamic of this Cleveland juggernaut of a convention," Tunick tells Esquire. "But I feel like doing this will sort of calms the senses. It brings it back to the body and to purity."

He’s also making a statement for his daughters:

"I have two daughters—9 and 11—and I want them to grow up in a progressive world with equal rights and equal pay and better treatment for women, and I feel like the 100 women lighting up the sky of Cleveland will send this ray of knowledge onto the cityscape," Tunick says. "I think it will enlighten not only the delegates but set the vibe of the weekend, set a tone."

Tunick announced the project and put out a call for unpaid volunteers this week. To pull it off, he'll work with a location manager, volunteers from local art schools, and his wife. Early in the morning on July 17, the day before the convention, the women will meet across from the arena on private property to get into formation, rain or shine. He estimates the volunteers will be nude for about 15 minutes. Each participant will receive a limited edition print of the project.


He's been arrested five times while attempting to work outdoors in New York, and Cleveland won't be his first brush with Republican politicians. While facing threat of arrest by New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the owners of Grand Central Station closed it down for him to host 400 women for an installation. The case against Tunick went to the Supreme Court. In 2000, the court ruled in favor of the artist.

"I ran into (Ruth Bader)Ginsburg at a museum after that and I thanked her," Tunick says. "She said, 'Just don't do it on the steps of the Supreme Court.'"

Bill O’Reilly Pathetically Defends Trump: ‘Jesus Never Put Out His Tax Returns!’

May 12, 2016 4:34 pm ·
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and Fox Business host Lou Dobbs made a pathetically lame attempt to defend Donald Trump’s hesitance to release his tax returns. In doing so, they made a disgraceful comparison between the presumptive Republican nominee and Jesus Christ.

On O’Reilly’s show, Dobbs came to the business mogul’s defense:

“Why should he turn over his tax returns when he’s being audited? He is facing a hostile national media that no matter how pristine those returns, it’s going to find something to pick at and blow up. And then use it as some shiny object to distract from the issue.”

O’Reilly pointed out that releasing those documents would be a “good move” on Trump’s part, considering that his honesty was “questioned by partisans.” It would not only be a good idea – it would be standard practice. Trump is now the first nominee not to disclose his tax returns since 1976. Even former President Richard Nixon, who was under audit, didn’t hesitate to release his tax returns – a fact that makes Trump’s secrecy look more shady than ever.

Dobbs pushed logic aside and said, “After the first billion, I lose interest.” He also failed to answer O’Reilly when he asked if there was anything that Dobbs hadn’t liked about Trump’s campaign. Dobbs refused to give him a straight answer, “because you’d be just like the rest of those guys in the national media, you just focus on it.”

O’Reilly pushed back and said, “I’m asking you as an analyst. You are not willing to say one thing.” When Dobbs continued to dance around the question, O’Reilly yelled:

“If he is Jesus, how can you analyze him?”

Dobbs said, “How can I analyze him? Because I have a superior mind that competes at least fairly favorably with your own.”

O’Reilly giggled and replied with something truly idiotic:

“Okay. Let’s just recap. According to Dobbs, Donald Trump is Jesus. And Jesus never put out his tax returns! Ever!”

Dobbs completely threw all intelligence out the window when he said, “That’s a line that I can actually agree with.”


It Wasn’t Just the Butler Who Did It

Donald Trump's ex-butler calls for Obama to be killed

Your "anti-establishment" candidate *has a butler*
Just to review: a white nationalist became a Trump delegate, his butler suggested Obama be hanged and David Duke offered to be VP this week

Trump’s Butler Hates ‘Negroes,’ Wanted to ‘Carpet Bomb’ Ferguson, Called ‘Killery’ Clinton a ‘C**t’******************


The former butler of stately Trump Manor is a racist, sexist nutjob who issues lurid Facebook fatwas calling for the death of President Obama for being a foreign-born “muzzy,” refers to black people as “negroes” in the manner of Cliven Bundy, suggests that American cities should be obliterated for ethnic cleansing purposes and calls future president Hillary Clinton a “cunt” who should be summarily lynched.

The fact that the man who used to play Alfred to Trump’s Batman is the distilled essence of the white nationalist element of every Trump rally ever held isn’t important news, apparently. It was reported, but as a sideshow item, as if it revealed nothing more about Trump except how hard it is to get good help these days. The story doesn’t appear above the fold at the moment at CNN, The New York Times or other major media outlets. (Imagine the screaming headlines and calls for congressional hearings that would result if the woman who scrubs Hillary Clinton’s toilets were revealed as a moon landing doubter.)

But let’s not pretend this has nothing to do with Trump. The butler did it, but Colonel Marmalade was seen in the conservatory with the crack pipe. So maybe some enterprising Beltway journalist could get a fucking clue and use this unfortunate butler incident as an opening to revisit the GOP nominee’s birther activities. Heretofore, when asked about birtherism by reporters, Trump says, “I don’t talk about that anymore.” What kind of lame-ass reporter lets an interview subject get away with that? (Cooper, Tapper, Blitzer, et al.)

Imagine if Hillary Clinton tried to deflect a question by airily proclaiming that she doesn’t talk about it anymore. She wouldn’t get away with it. The complaint here isn’t that there’s a double standard; of course there’s a double standard, which is why Trump can babble about Bill Clinton’s 25-year-old horn-dog behavior without having his own piggish history, which includes rape allegations, put under the media microscope. The bygones — they are gone by!
