Putin spokesman: Harvey Weinstein accusers are prostitutes

By PATRICK REEVELL Moscow — Mar 30, 2018, 1:21 PM ET

"What is a woman called who sleeps with a man for $10 million? She is called a prostitute."

So said Russian President Vladimir Putin’s chief spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, speaking about the Hollywood actresses who've accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct, adding that they should have spoken up sooner.

Peskov made the comments to a group of students during a panel talk at a Moscow university this week, where he was asked about a high-profile sexual harassment scandal involving Leonid Slutsky, a senior member of Russia’s Parliament who has been accused of forcing himself on multiple female journalists.

Peskov asked why the women had not come forward sooner to accuse Slutsky publicly and suggested they were following a “fashion trend” in making the claims.

“Look, if this poor journalist was assaulted by Slutsky -- where has she been?" Peskov told the students. "If he groped you, if he harassed you -- why did you keep quiet? Why didn’t you go to police? Why did so much time go [by],” said Peskov, whose remarks were filmed on a smartphone at the talk....More at link


The amount of fan mail the Parkland shooter is receiving is unreal

CNN)It's an eerie pile of messages to a killer.

Postmarked from all over the United States and Europe, they are from women, girls and grown men. Some are handwritten, others are typed. They are written on college-ruled notebook paper and in fancy greeting cards with cartoons. Some are stuffed with sexually suggestive photos of women and teens in lingerie.

There's even a handwritten note from a Girl Scout troop in New Jersey, signed by more than a dozen girls. "May God Forgive," they wrote.

All the pieces of mail appear to share one theme: They are sympathetic toward the person to whom they are addressed: Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old who shot and killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida....

Unreal is an understatement

Asshole Steve King mocks Emma Gonzalez's Cuban heritage

Steve King's campaign criticizes Parkland survivor Emma Gonzalez

By Maegan Vazquez, CNN

Updated 7:56 PM ET, Mon March 26, 2018

Washington (CNN)Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King is facing heat after someone managing his campaign's Facebook page posted a meme on Sunday criticizing a Parkland student for donning a patch of the Cuban flag.

"This is how you look when you claim Cuban heritage yet don't speak Spanish and ignore the fact that your ancestors fled the island when the dictatorship turned Cuba into a prison camp, after removing all weapons from its citizens; hence their right to self defense," the meme said alongside an image of Cuban-American Emma Gonazlez, a survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, speaking at the March for Our Lives rally in Washington on Saturday.

So let me get this straight...

if you spank Trump he will stop talking about himself?

Stormy Daniels: Just, I don't think anyone's ever spoken to him like that, especially, you know, a young woman who looked like me. And I said, you know, "Give me that," and I just remember him going, "You wouldn't." "Hand it over." And-- so he did, and I was like, turn around, drop 'em."

Anderson Cooper: You-- you told Donald Trump to turn around and take off his pants.

Stormy Daniels: Yes.

Anderson Cooper: And did he?

Stormy Daniels: Yes. So he turned around and pulled his pants down a little -- you know had underwear on and stuff and I just gave him a couple swats.

Anderson Cooper: This was done in a joking manner.

Stormy Daniels: Yes. and-- from that moment on, he was a completely different person.

Anderson Cooper: How so?

Stormy Daniels: He quit talking about himself and he asked me things and I asked him things and it just became like more appropriate.

So Trump likes to get spanked by people who reminds him of his daughter.lol

Trump and Melania sleep in separate rooms. I don't blame her.

By Jeremy Diamond, Gloria Borger and Pamela Brown, CNN

Updated 6:48 PM ET, Thu March 22, 2018

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump's lead lawyer, John Dowd, has resigned from the President's personal legal team handling the response to the Russia investigation.

As the investigation seems to be intensifying, the President, according to multiple sources, is convinced he needs to take the reins of his own legal strategy and Trump has recently pushed to bring new attorneys onto his team.


*Taking the reins of his own strategy, and helping himself....just like Pete Puma...


*Trump is going to get 'a whole lotta lumps, a whole lotta lumps'

Thanks to my husband for the toon reminder.

Wilbur Ross and James Mattis are next

The White House leaker is Trump.

Breaking:Saudi crown prince: If Iran makes a nuclear bomb, so will we

Mohammed bin Salman returns to Washington this week to kick off his U.S. tour with a series of White House meetings — and a blunt message about his strategy toward his nation's regional rival.

by Vivian Salama / Mar.19.2018 / 1:27 PM ET

WASHINGTON — Saudi Arabia’s crown prince returns to Washington this week with a warning: If more isn’t done to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, his country will pursue its own, “as soon as possible.”

Mohammed bin Salman’s second official visit to Washington, the first of more than half a dozen U.S. cities he plans to visit, kicks off Tuesday with meetings at the White House with President Donald Trump and top members of the administration, including Vice President Mike Pence and national security adviser H.R. McMaster.

The visit comes as senior U.S. officials have grown increasingly worried that the crown prince's aggressive moves in the region may further destabilize the Middle East — and shortly after more than a dozen current and former senior U.S. officials told NBC News that intelligence indicates MBS — as the crown prince is known — has blocked his mother from seeing his father, King Salman, for at least two years, as he has solidified his grip on power.
