The Michigan state legislature held a wild hearing on Wednesday evening as Trump campaign lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis continued their crusade to defy the will of the American people by overturning Joe Biden’s election victory over Trump. And some of the witnesses Giuliani trotted out did indeed make headlines, but not necessarily for the reasons that Trump and friends would have liked.One of the witnesses, a naturalized American citizen from India, served as a Republican poll watcher at the TCF Center in Detroit on election day, and she spoke at length about various interactions she had with others that she thought indicated widespread voter fraud — though it needs to be made clear that she and the other witnesses didn’t provide evidence. One specific complaint she had, which had little to do with what she was there to testify about, was that people can vote without a photo ID.This is a problem, she said, because “all Chinese look alike.”Also Read: Rudy Giuliani Says The Problem With Republicans Is 'We're Too Nice' (Video)One of Rudy Giuliani’s witnesses just said she thinks “all Chinese look alike” while making the argument for a voter ID requirement in Michigan pic.twitter.com/WUCYRTzmgu– philip lewis (@Phil_Lewis_) December 3, 2020 The woman made the comment in response to a question from the Michigan House Oversight Committee chair, who asked what she would do in the future to avoid election fraud.“I come from a country where a lot of things go wrong. Our countries are known for corruption. But when it comes to elections, from what I’ve seen here to what we used to do back in India, it is a lot more organized now because we have an identification system,” the woman said.“And the fact that now, as the other representatives said, you can actually show up and vote without an ID. It’s shocking. How can you allow that to happen?Also Read: Rudy Giuliani Denies He Asked Trump for a Pardon: 'NYT Lies Again'“Like, a lot of people think all Indians look alike. I think all Chinese look alike. So how would you tell? If some Chow shows up, you can be anybody and you can vote. And if somebody with my name — you can’t even tell my name — anybody can vote on my behalf. So ID should be the basic requirement.”The subject of voter ID in the United States is a tricky one, with every state having its own rules — and prices — for obtaining a valid ID. For more on how problematic it would be to require voter ID, here’s a solid rundown of the facts.It’s not clear how, if poll workers are unable to distinguish between various individuals of Chinese heritage, voter ID would help with that. If they couldn’t tell the difference between them in person, then they likely would not be able to tell if the person in the ID photo is the same as the person who presented the ID.Also Read: Here's Why Four Seasons Total Landscaping Was Picked for Trump Campaign Press ConferenceThe curious statements come about two months after Rudy Giuliani was caught on video making a number of racist jokes about Asian people.You can watch the entire hearing, which lasted more than four hours, right here.Read original story Trump Election Fraud Witness Says We Need Voter ID Because ‘All Chinese Look Alike’ (Video) At TheWrap

Citing the rising threat of “a devastating tipping point” in the spread of COVID-19, the city of Los Angeles on Wednesday announced a new stay-at-home order, effective immediately. However, the announcement caused considerable confusion when its tone didn’t quite match the sweeping number of exceptions, and within hours of announcing the order the city confirmed that nothing much had changed.“Our City is now close to a devastating tipping point, beyond which the number of hospitalized patients would start to overwhelm our hospital system, in turn risking needless suffering and death. These unfortunate facts about the spread of COVID-19 in our City mean that we must resume some of the more restrictive measures we instituted in the Spring,” the order, issued by the office of LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, says.The order mandates that all residents of Los Angeles “subject only to the exceptions outlined in this Order” are now “ordered to remain in their homes,” The order expressly forbids “all public and private gatherings of any number of people from more than one household.” In addition, the order prohibits “all travel, including, without limitation, travel on foot, bicycle, scooter, motorcycle, automobile, or public transit.”Also Read: LA County Implements 'Targeted' Safer-at-Home Order Amid COVID SurgeBut fittingly for a year in which Los Angeles city and county officials have often failed to communicate clearly, Garcetti’s office later told ABC News that things are pretty much the same as they were before the announcement. “The mayor’s office tells us nothing new is happening.All they did was update the order from earlier this year to mirror the county’s order from days ago. Nothing new in LA tonight,” ABC’s Alex Stone said.Stone was referring to a “targeted” safer-at-home order enacted by Los Angeles County officials that went into effect on Monday; the primary difference appears to be that the County’s order currently expires on Dec. 20, while the city’s stay-at-home order is, for now, open-ended.For those wondering, the exceptions to the seemingly strict new order are as follows:* All healthcare operations, which, yes, means marijuana dispensaries as well as “hospitals, clinics, dentists, pharmacies, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, medical and scientific research, laboratories, healthcare suppliers, home healthcare services providers, veterinary care and pet day care providers, mental and behavioral health providers and support groups,” among many others.Also Read: Stars Who Have Tested Positive for COVID-19 (Photos)* Business selling food, water, medicines, and “household consumer products necessary to maintain the safety, sanitation and essential operation of residences.” These including liquor stores, grocery stores, food trucks and carts, pet stores and similar businesses, as well as “certified farmers markets” that “are able to obtain written approval from the Bureau of Street Services.”* Farming, livestock, horticultural and fishing operations* “Organizations and businesses that provide food, shelter, and social services, and other necessities of life for economically disadvantaged or otherwise needy individuals — which includes “gang prevention and intervention, domestic violence, and homeless services agencies.”* Media outlets and music, TV, podcast or film studios that comply with LA county health requirements.* Automobile-related services including gas stations, repair shops, dealerships and part supply retailers, and similar services related to bicyles.* “Banks, credit unions, financial institutions and insurance companies, and pawn shops.”* Home improvement and construction related businesses and retailers, including hardware shops, day labor services.Also Read: 'The Voice' Contestant Disqualified for Violating COVID-19 Protocols* Organizations that “provide services to maintain the safety, sanitation, and essential operation to properties and other essential activities discussed in this subsection.” This includes plumbing, electrical and custodial services, funerary services, movers, construction and home repair and instillation services, and property management, among others.* Packaging, shipping and mail related businesses and services.* Educational institutions including university and technical schools.* Laundry service providers and businesses.* “Restaurants and retail food facilities” offering “food to customers via delivery service, to be picked up, via drive thru service,” as well as “entities that typically provide free food services to students or members of the public.” In addition, “cafeterias, commissaries, and restaurants located within hospitals, nursing homes, or other licensed health care facilities may provide dine-in service, as long as Social (Physical) Distancing is practiced.”* Retail goods storage facilities.* Utility companies and other operations that make it possible for essential businesses to operate.* Shipping and delivery related to essential businesses.* “Airlines, taxis, ride sharing services, car rental companies, and other private transportation services providing transportation services necessary for essential activities”* “Home-based care for disabled persons, seniors, adults, or children.”* Residential facilities and shelters for homeless residents, disabled persons, seniors, adults, children and animals.* Certain “office-based businesses” where telecommuting isn’t possible, such as legal or real estate businesses.* Faith-based gatherings.* Childcare services.* “Hotels, motels, shared rental units and similar facilities” that comply with county health requirements.* Military and defense contractors.* Manufacturers of retail goods.* City parks and trails, which will remain open during normal operating hours.* Beaches are open for swimming, running, surfing and walking but not for sunbathing or gatherings of any kind.* Fitness facilities are allowed to maintain outdoor operations only at 50% capacity.* Public libraries may open at 20% indoor capacity.* Breweries and wineries may open at 20% capacity for retail, but must be closed to on site food and beverage services.Read more here.LA County officials reported 5,987 new confirmed COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, 40 new deaths, and 94% spike in hospitalizations over the last 2 weeks.Read original story Los Angeles Issues New Stay-at-Home Order as Covid Cases Rage – But Not Much Actually Changed At TheWrap
During a wild, sometimes humiliating hearing in Michigan on Wednesday — part of the Donald Trump campaign’s antidemocratic attempts to overturn the 2020 election despite the fact that he lost badly to Joe Biden — Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, had some peculiar thoughts about what is going on in the country.Specifically, Giuliani claimed that the people opposed to what he’s doing are being mean, and that as he sees it the Republicans have the opposite problem: “Maybe sometimes we’re too nice. Maybe sometimes we’re too decent.”The quote came after an extended rant in which Giuliani exemplified decency by demanding that Michigan state legislators ignore every single other part of the state government that has repeatedly certified Joe Biden’s victory, and the will of the state’s citizens, and simply declare Trump the winner despite the fact that he lost. Then, the man formerly known as “America’s mayor” just started whining about how mean people are.Also Read: Here's Why Four Seasons Total Landscaping Was Picked for Trump Campaign Press Conference“There’s no way that this wasn’t stolen,” Giuliani falsely claimed before adding that he thinks the people attempting to assist Trump’s efforts to undo Biden’s clear victory have “courage, to stand up to what the Democrats are doing to them.”“And it’s not just the wild and crazy left wing Democrats who do it. They do it as a way of bullying us,” Rudy continued. “You can see their behavior in this hearing. I can see the difference in behavior on two sides. Maybe sometimes we’re too nice. Maybe sometimes we’re too decent. Maybe we shouldn’t change, but one thing we should have is have the ability to defend ourselves, and not let our people get kicked around the way those Republicans were kicked around.”Now, to be clear, literally no violence against Republicans has been reported during this whole election debacle, not even after Trump began his campaign to disregard the clear will of the majority of Americans. And watching the full video of the hearing, it’s difficult to identify any moment where anyone is “bullying” to Giuliani or his witnesses.Also Read: Trump Threatens to Veto Defense Bill in Apparent Tantrum Over Mean Things Said About Him on TwitterBut, something that didn’t get brought up is the fact that many public servants have been subjected to repeated death threats and other threats of physical harm by people supporting Donald Trump. And Trump himself has even started publicly insulting Republican governors who have certified Biden’s victories in their states.Because clearly, he’s too nice.Watch a clip of Rudy’s remarks below, and the full hearing, if you can tolerate it, here.Rudy Giuliani says “maybe sometimes [Republicans] are too nice.

(Warning: This post contains spoilers for the Season 4 premiere of “SEAL Team.”)After suffering “40 fall brothers, a broken marriage, a broken body and a broken head,” Jason Hayes (David Boreanaz) told Bravo Team at the end of the two-hour “SEAL Team” Season 4 premiere that he’s out.“Leading Bravo Team has been the greatest honor of my life. But war has been my refuge for too long,” Bravo One told his teammates. “And I’m done. It’s time for Bravo One to take a step back from operating and find a life for Jason Hayes.”And star Boreanaz tells TheWrap Jason is not messing around here.Also Read: Winter TV 2021: All the Premiere Dates for New and Returning Shows - So Far (Photos)“For Jason, it’s a time of trying to figure out what life is like outside of the team. And I will say that that doesn’t go too well, it doesn’t bode too well for him,” he said. “I think one of the saddest things for all of these veterans that come back is that they don’t have that sense of unity or community that they sacrificed so much, and how they get treated. So we’ll examine a lot of that and ultimately learn about the character and how his plight is and whether or not he decides to rejoin or maybe just leaves the show.”Yes, Boreanaz might actually leave “SEAL Team” — but nothing has been decided yet.“It’s more about Jason and where his story has gone and where it’s going. I think what’s exciting about this character and the intense, realistic approach to them is that we’ve decided to pile it on that the character are open for being able to leave, be replaced, whatever that is. I mean, we don’t like to sugarcoat it. It’s tough, because we’re on a network show and part of it’s entertainment but we also want to be true to the storyline of what these guys really go through. And if that’s the case, then we can’t really split that up. We can examine it and look at it. But these are all probabilities and I won’t say there is anything written definitely in stone, it’s just there. And we’ll see how that unfolds.”Also Read: Here Are the Premiere Dates for Broadcast TV's New and Returning Winter Shows (Updating)Jason’s decision to leave Bravo Team this season came after his dear friend and team member Mandy Ellis (Jessica Paré) told him earlier in the “SEAL Team” fourth-season premiere she was leaving her life of service. But Mandy’s exit is more permanent than Jason’s — at least for now — as Paré is actually stepping away from the show.“There’s a lot of characters leaving, but then trying to find light in other areas for their careers for their characters,” Boreanaz said, referring to both Paré’s Mandy and Lt. Commander Eric Blackburn (played by Judd Lormand, who is now a recurring guest star on “SEAL Team” versus a series regular).“What’s great about Season 4 is we’re allowed and we’ve earned the right to really get underneath their skin and see where their head is,” Boreanaz added. “And they’re all not there. I mean, they’re going to lose a lot. When you sacrifice, you lose a lot. And in losing a lot, you see more doors open for them. And some will be good that the audience will like and some the audience won’t like. But it’s a continuous revolving door that we can’t shy away from.”“SEAL Team” airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on CBS.Read original story ‘SEAL Team’ Star David Boreanaz Says Jason’s Life-Changing Decision Won’t ‘Go Too Well’ This Season At TheWrap
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for the Season 4 premiere of “SEAL Team.”)Toward the end of the two-hour Season 4 premiere of CBS’ “SEAL Team,” Mandy Ellis (Jessica Paré) tells her dear friend and teammate Jason Hayes (David Boreanaz) that she’s made the difficult decision to leave her life of service. And with Mandy’s exit from the Navy SEALs team comes Paré’s departure from “SEAL Team.”Following Wednesday’s premiere, CBS revealed Paré will no longer be a series regular on the drama, but will return later in the season to make her directorial debut with an upcoming episode.“Our show strives to be as authentic as possible to the experiences of our service members, and similar to real life, SEAL Team units change and evolve so in our show some of the characters move on as well,” showrunner Spencer Hudnut said in a statement. “Over the last 3 seasons, we’ve seen how war takes a toll not just physically but mentally and emotionally. In this new 4th season, many of our characters will be at a crossroads and confronting tough decisions in their careers. For Mandy’s story arc, it was finally time for her to retire and leave this life of service, but this does not mean we won’t potentially see her again later.”Also Read: Winter TV 2021: All the Premiere Dates for New and Returning Shows - So Far (Photos)Hudnut continued, “On a personal level, we love Jessica and she has and will always be an integral part of the SEAL Team family. And we are excited to announce that she will actually be coming back behind the camera as a director for an upcoming episode this season, and this will be her directorial debut.”Paré has been with “SEAL Team” since the series premiered in 2017. Along with Boreanaz, the show’s other series regulars include Max Thieriot, Neil Brown Jr., AJ Buckley and Toni Trucks.“SEAL Team” airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on CBS.Read original story Jessica Pare Exits ‘SEAL Team’ Following Season 4 Premiere, But Will Return to Direct At TheWrap
