On Friday’s episode of “Real Time,” Bill Maher kicked off the show with a monologue largely focused on the only things anyone can think about right now: The upcoming election, the battle to replace RGB on the Supreme Court, and Trump’s disturbing refusal to commit to accepting the results of the election if he loses.And during the rant, he summed up his opinion of Trump’s likely nominee for the Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett, bluntly: “she’s a f—ing nut.”“It’s 38 days before the election. Feels less like an election and more like a going-out-a-business sale, doesn’t it? It’s like all rules must go in America,” Maher said.Maher was referring to the disturbing moment Donald Trump, when asked during a White House press conference if he would commit to a “peaceful transferal of power,” refused to do so, made false claims that that there is a widespread problem of ballot fraud, and baselessly accused Democrats of being in on that nonexistent fraud.

I mean, even banana republics are like, ‘This is bananas.'”“If you are the president, the only acceptable answer to the question of ‘will you submit to the peaceful transference of power’ is ‘yes.’ Not ‘We’re looking at it strongly.’ Not ‘we’ll see what happens,'” Maher continued. “Are these f—ing people insane, this guy will do anything to steal an election.”“Let me just say this: If you’re a black voter in a red state, you gotta get in line now. Seriously, I mean Trump called mail-in voting today ‘this scam the Democrats are trying to pull.’ He said, ‘this scam will be before the Supreme Court.’ Yes, which we’re currently stealing a seat on,” Maher joked, pretending to represent the GOP point of view. “Because I’m staying and suing, because nothing says democracy like a president who’s a squatter.”That’s when he turned the topic to the supreme court and Barrett: “And you know this, I think he picked the person for the court today, but all week at the rallies all the Trump people have been chanting, ‘Fill that seat! Fill that seat!’ Even the teabaggers are going, that sounds gay. Teabagging was bad, but this,” Maher said, referring to the report Friday that Trump will announce Barrett on Saturday.Also Read: Trump Administration Revoked Award for Female Journalist Who Criticized Him, Says Watchdog“We’ll be saying this name a lot, I’m sure, because she’s a f—ing nut,” he said.“Religion. I was right about that one too,” he continued. “Amy Coney Barrett, Catholic. Really Catholic, I mean really, really Catholic. Like speaking in tongues. Like she doesn’t believe in condoms which she has in common with Trump because he doesn’t either. I remember that from Stormy Daniels.”“So she’s gonna be on the court. RBG’s laying in state. Trump visited RBG’s casket. When he walked in, everybody went ‘boooo’. And of course all the ass kissers around Trump, they told him, ‘No sir, they’re saying ‘coup, coup,'” Maher said. “It’s so funny but we’re losing our country.”Maher also touched on the weird announcement Trump made this week of a health care plan that didn’t appear to be a plan at all, just taking credit for things that already exist and that he is actively trying to destroy, like protections for preexisting conditions. And then he noted the tragic news this week that more than 200,000 people have been killed by COVID-19 as of this week. He then ended his monologue on a joke about a report this week that Trump privately says very racist things.Also Read: Hugh Hefner's Son Claps Back at Kayleigh McEnany for Dig at Playboy's White House Reporter“And the Washington Post this week reported that Trump in unguarded moments says racist stuff about Blacks and Jews. Yeah, I got news for you, Post. It’s not that great in guarded moments either,” Maher said. “Apparently he says things like Blacks are lazy, Jews are greedy, and Slovenian women are never in the mood for sex.”Read original story Bill Maher Says Amy Coney Barrett Is ‘a F—ing Nut’ At TheWrap

The Trump administration revoked an International Women of Courage Award for Finnish journalist Jessikka Aro after she criticized the president, according to a new report from the Office of the Inspector General.The report also says State Department officials gave a false explanation for why it rescinded the award.The inspector general’s office obtained meeting notes that showed senior U.S. officials saying Aro’s invitation to the State Department’s International Women of Courage Awards should be withdrawn. The acting director of the Office of Global Women’s Issues noted that Aro had made social media posts criticizing Trump and the “media could highlight the tweets and Facebook posts during the ceremony.”Also Read: Trump Lashes Out at Fox News After Poll Shows Him Down in Key StatesThe reasoning was that if the posts were highlighted, it would embarrass the department, as well as first lady Melania Trump, who was involved with the awards.The press highlighted the posts anyway: Foreign Policy reported last year that Aro’s award had been canceled due to her criticism.A State Department spokesperson said in an email to Foreign Policy at the time that Aro was “incorrectly notified” that she would be getting the award, calling it a mistake caused by “a lack of coordination in communications with candidates and our embassies.”The IG report found that Aro’s work on Russian propaganda had been selected, but, as Foreign Policy reported in 2019, she was booted from the list after her social media posts were discovered.Aro told Foreign Policy that the withdrawal left her feeling “appalled and surprised.”“The reality in which political decisions or presidential pettiness directs top U.S. diplomats’ choices over whose human rights work is mentioned in the public sphere and whose is not is a really scary reality,” she said at the time.Read original story Trump Administration Revoked Award for Female Journalist Who Criticized Him, Says Watchdog At TheWrap
President Donald Trump lashed out once again at Fox News after the network’s latest poll showed him losing to Democratic nominee Joe Biden in key states like Pennsylvania and Ohio.“One of the worst polls in 2016 was the @FoxNews Poll. They were so ridiculously wrong. Fox said they were going to change pollsters, but they didn’t. They totally over sample Democrats to a point that a child could see what is going on. Rasmussen, which was accurate, at 52%,” wrote the president on Twitter.The new poll, released Thursday, shows Biden at 52% in Nevada while Trump is at 41%. In Ohio, Biden had 50% and Trump and 45%. Pennsylvania earned Biden 51% and Trump 44%. A majority of respondents in each state were displeased with Trump’s handling of the coronavirus and indicated they’d prefer Biden to make the next Supreme Court nominee.Also Read: Trump Faces Boos, 'Vote Him Out' Chants at Ruth Bader Ginsburg Memorial (Video)The president regularly chastizes Fox News and its polling unit when he dislikes the findings of a poll, and while Fox News doesn’t respond to direct attacks, the network has been consistent in defending its polling unit.Earlier this month, the president falsely claimed that he was actually leading in battleground states, but the “fake news” wouldn’t report it.“I must tell you that Fox has among the worst pollsters of all. I think they’re terrible,” Trump told Fox News Sean Hannity Sept. 9, while calling into his show.Read original story Trump Lashes Out at Fox News After Poll Shows Him Down in Key States At TheWrap

Kevin Tsujihara denies that his past extramarital relationship with actress Charlotte Kirk, which led to his ouster as the CEO of Warner Bros. in March 2019, was anything but consensual, following a report on Thursday that Kirk had accused him of engaging “in non-consensual intercourse.”In a story published Thursday by The Hollywood Reporter, citing sealed legal documents, Kirk said on Sept. 26, 2013, she met Tsujihara and mogul James Packer at the Hotel Bel-Air. Kirk said that she initially refused to have sex with Tsujihara but was pressured by Packer to do so. THR reported that Kirk said in legal documents, “Fearing for her personal safety, being blacklisted and the destruction of her career before it ever began, she complied with Mr. [Packer’s] demands and engaged in non-consensual intercourse with Mr. [Tsujihara] under duress.”“The recently published Hollywood Reporter story is comprised of lies and twisted facts, and is outright wrong in many respects,” Bert H. Deixler, Tsujihara’s personal attorney, told TheWrap. “Despite being provided with evidence to refute several purported claims, The Hollywood Reporter recklessly included these blatant falsehoods. Any claims made against Kevin Tsujihara related to Ms. Kirk are legally and factually baseless, manufactured many years after their brief consensual relationship to unjustly seek the payment of money. The relationship was pursued by Ms. Kirk and at all times understood by Kevin to be entirely consensual. While Kevin continues to regret the relationship and the impact it had on his family, he will pursue all legal remedies available to protect himself from extortionate claims and prevent false accusations against him.”Also Read: Who Is Charlotte Kirk, the Actress at Center of Ron Meyer's OusterAccording to THR, Kirk is currently suing her former lawyers and is battling with Marty Singer (who represents Packer, Brett Ratner and Avi Lerner) over an injunction which keeps her from pursuing legal action against any of the parties involved.Singer, in a lengthy statement to TheWrap, said in part, “My clients are the victims of a multi-million-dollar civil extortion plot perpetrated by Charlotte Kirk, her former boyfriend Joshua Newton and her latest paramour Neil Marshall. After years of ever-evolving and wildly untrue allegations of misconduct in an increasingly outlandish hunt for money, this past Spring, they threatened to smear my clients and they collectively demanded a mindboggling $335 million.”He continued, “To be clear, these latest allegations are ludicrous, offensive and entirely false. James Packer never behaved in the manner alleged, and, as Kirk herself repeatedly said in multiple television and print interviews that she voluntarily gave, all of her interactions with my clients were fully consensual at all times … Enough is enough. My clients are done with these scheming opportunists and their malicious, defamatory smears – and look forward to putting an end to this menacing plot once and for all.”In March 2019, Kevin Tsujihara stepped down as chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Entertainment amid an ongoing investigation into his past relationship with Kirk, an aspiring actress who was later cast in two Warner Bros. movies. Tsujihara worked at the studio for two decades and served as chairman for six years.Read original story Former Warner Bros.
