What is sadfishing? Are you guilty of it? Everything we need to know about yet another new social media phenomenon that’s affecting young people around the world.
In the wake of the social media post on the @SussexRoyal Instagram account, the orders have increased tenfold.
Since leaving the White House, Barack Obama is still maintaining a high profile as he travels across continents to deliver his views on the state of the world including on the current US administration, and has entered into the entertainment and publishing arenas.
Former national security adviser and ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton isn’t scheduled to testify during House hearings around the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump — and Jim Carrey thinks that is “just another profile in cowardice.”The outspoken actor on Tuesday again used his doodling skills to take on a former member of Trump’s administration. This time, he wrote “BOLTON” down the side along with, “…the tough get going and the weak get silent!”Just another profile in cowardice. pic.twitter.com/iIumZGlRHo– Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) November 20, 2019Also Read: Jim Carrey Busts Donald Trump With NSFW Cartoon About House Impeachment Inquiry VoteBolton isn’t exactly being silent about everything, of course. He stepped down from his position in the administration in September and by early November, the Associated Press was reporting he had signed a book deal with Simon & Schuster worth approximately $2 million.The title, subject and release date of the book are not known and no other details have been made public. With the deal, Bolton will become the third person to parlay a Trump administration job into a lucrative book contract.Other former ambassadors, however, are testifying this month. Wednesday was the fourth day of hearings in Trump’s impeachment inquiry and, in fact, Bolton’s name was mentioned by Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland Wednesday as someone who “knew what we were doing and why” when it came to Trump’s dealings in Ukraine.Read original story Jim Carrey Takes Aim at John Bolton ‘Cowardice’ in Latest Political Artwork At TheWrap
CNN’s media team took on White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham over the weekend, saying that she declines to come on the network’s Sunday show and doesn’t fulfill the “traditional duties” of her role.In a statement to TheWrap Monday, Grisham responded by saying: “This weekend was no different than any other day when it comes to CNN.”Her reaction came after CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy pointed out on Saturday that with Grisham at the helm of President Trump’s communications team, “It’s not like the old days.”Also Read: White House Press Secretary Defends Trump Calling Opponents 'Human Scum': They 'Are Just That'“Back in the old days, we had a White House press secretary,” he said. “Now, it seems like we have someone who’s occupying the office of the White House press secretary.“We have someone who has the title of White House press secretary, but not someone fulfilling the traditional duties of the White House press secretary: Going out every single day in front of the cameras, taking questions from reporters, briefing the American public — because it’s briefing the American public that they’re doing, not just reporters — about what the White House is doing on behalf of them.”Also Read: White House Press Secretary Defends G7 Coming to Trump Property: The Trump Brand Is 'Known'Darcy continued, referencing Grisham’s appearances on Sinclair and Fox News: “Instead, what you have is someone who is going on the president’s favorite shows, the friendliest corners of the world for the president and this administration, and trashing the president’s critics. Stephanie Grisham might have the title of White House press secretary, but she’s really White House press secretary in name only, if you will.”Last week on “Fox & Friends,” Grisham defended the president’s use of the words “human scum” to describe “never-Trump” Republicans. During a previous appearance on Fox News’ morning show, she confirmed daily press briefings will not be coming back. She said at the time some reporters were “getting famous off this presidency.”Also Read: White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham Confirms Televised Briefings Won't Return Soon: Reporters Were 'Getting Famous' From ItDuring that appearance in September, Grisham reiterated her stance that Trump is his own best spokesperson, which she also said during an August appearance on Sinclair’s “America This Week.”CNN’s chief media correspondent Brian Stelter noted during his “Reliable Sources” on Sunday that Grisham “acts more like a propaganda minister than a press secretary.” He highlighted her slamming former White House chief of staff as being “totally unequipped to handle the genius of our great president” and her likening the impeachment inquiry to “a mob-lynching type of situation” as examples.On the show, in a subsequent tweet and, finally, in his nightly newsletter, Stelter posed Grisham a question: “If you are so proud and so confident in the ‘genius’ of ‘our great president,’ why don’t you restore the daily press briefings and tout his accomplishments and take questions?”A spokesperson for CNN declined additional comment, but referred TheWrap to Darcy and Stelter’s statements from the weekend.Also in Stelter’s newsletter: “Every week, the ‘Reliable Sources’ team invites Grisham on the program for an interview. Every week, she declines.”Read original story White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham Dismisses CNN’s Criticism: ‘No Different Than Any Other Day’ At TheWrap
