Kanye West, fresh off a Fourth of July presidential run announcement, gave a wide-ranging interview to Forbes where he renounced his support for President Donald Trump and said he is running on the “Birthday Party” ticket.“I am taking the red hat off, with this interview,” said the rapper, who has famously supported Trump and met with him at Trump Tower and in the Oval Office.The interview dropped in the early hours of Wednesday, and by daylight, other elements of West’s chat with the magazine were trending on Twitter, particularly “Birthday Party.”Also Read: Kanye West's Presidential Bid Hurts Joe Biden's Odds to Win, According to Betting SiteThe reason why he calls his political party — for which he is receiving guidance from Elon Musk — the Birthday Party is simple: “Because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday.”West’s presidential bid has slightly dinged Democratic presumptive Joe Biden’s odds to win the 2020 election, according to one of the largest online sportsbooks, so maybe it isn’t Biden’s birthday after all.According to Bet Online, political betting markets opened Sunday with West added at +10000 (100/1) odds to win the 2020 election. Those are the same odds 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has, though she is not in the race and has thrown her support behind Biden.From Saturday to Sunday, Biden — the outright favorite — moved from -180 (5/9) to -160 (5/8) odds, according to Bet Online. Republican and incumbent Trump’s odds to win improved with West’s weekend announcement, moving from +150 (3/2) to +130 (13/10).Read original story Kanye West Renounces Trump Support, Declares Own Political Party the ‘Birthday Party’ At TheWrap

Mary Kay Letourneau, a Seattle-area middle school teacher who became infamous in 1997 after raping one of her students, serving a lengthy prison sentence, and then marrying the student after her release from prison, died Monday following a battle with cancer. She was 58.Her attorney told Seattle NBC affiliate King 5 that Letourneau had stage 4 cancer and was diagnosed in 2019. The nature of her cancer was not provided.In 1996, Letourneau, then age 34, was a sixth-grade teacher in Burien, Washington. In June of that year, she was found alone in her car with one of her students, 12-year-old Vili Fualaau. After first attempting to lie about their names and the circumstances under which she was in the car with Fualaau, Letourneau was taken into custody and Fualaau’s mother was contacted. Letourneau denied that anything sexual had occurred however, and Fualaau’s mother — who later said police did not inform her of the circumstances — allowed him to remain in Letourneau’s company.Also Read: Woman Accuses Ghislaine Maxwell of Raping Her '20-30 Times' as a Teen, Willing to TestifyNine months later, in March 1997, Letourneau was reported to police by a relative of her husband and arrested. It then came out that she had repeatedly raped Fualaau and was now pregnant. She pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree child rape and prosecutors sought a 6-year sentence. But she initially avoided a prison sentence via a plea deal which included three years of sex offender treatment and three months in county jail. She gave birth to a daughter while awaiting sentencing.In February 1998, shortly after being released from jail, she was arrested after being discovered having sex in her car with Fualaau, who was 14 at the time. Her plea deal was then revoked and she was ordered to serve the full sentence. She gave birth to her second child with Fualaau later that year while in prison.After she was released from prison in 2004 Fualaau, at that point age 21, convinced a court to rescind the restraining order preventing them from being in contact, and they married the next year. They divorced in 2019. During their marriage, Fualaa defended their relationship but after their split People magazine reported that he now considers the relationship “unhealthy.”Read original story Mary Kay Letourneau, Teacher Convicted of Raping Her Student, Dies at 58 At TheWrap

Donald Trump cheated on his SATs, once referred to his niece’s breasts as being “stacked” and didn’t visit his dying brother at the hospital, according to excerpts from Mary Trump’s upcoming tell-all book that were reported upon on Tuesday.Mary Trump, the president’s niece, is scheduled to release “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” next Tuesday. According to promotional material from her publisher, Simon & Schuster, Mary Trump’s “explosive” book will show how the president “acquired twisted behaviors and values” like, “Financial worth is the same as self-worth; humans are only valued in monetary terms,” “a ‘killer’ instinct is revered, while qualities like empathy, kindness, and expertise are punished,” “taking responsibility for your failures is discouraged” and “cheating as a way of life.”According to the New York Times, which reviewed a manuscript of Mary Trump’s book, Donald Trump paid someone to take the SATs for him, and the “high score” helped him get into the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton business school. The Times also reported that Mary Trump recalls how no one went with Fred Trump Jr., Donald’s eldest brother who died from a heart attack, to the hospital on the night of his death; instead, Donald Trump went to the movies.Also Read: Kellyanne Conway Blames Media for Airing Out 'Family Matters' Detailed in Mary Trump's New Book (Video)The Daily Beast, which obtained a copy of the book, reported that Mary Trump recounts an incident when Donald Trump commented on her breasts when she was wearing a bathing suit and shorts during a trip to Mar-a-Lago when she was 29.“Holy s—, Mary. You’re stacked,” Donald Trump said to Mary Trump, according to the Daily Beast.The book also shares conversations that Mary Trump said she had with Maryanne Trump Barry, in which Donald Trump’s sister called him a “clown” and pushed back after white evangelicals started endorsing him for president.“The only time Donald went to church was when the cameras were there. It’s mind boggling. He has no principles. None!” Mary Trump recalls Maryanne saying, according to the Daily Beast.Read original story Mary Trump’s Tell-All Book: President Cheated on SATs, Commented on Niece’s Breasts, Abandoned Brother on Deathbed At TheWrap
