    MATTEO GUENDOUZI has risked the wrath of Arsenal fans by suggesting his loan side Marseille's stadium has a much better atmosphere than theirs. The 22-year-old joined the Ligue 1 side this summer on loan from the Gunners and has already fallen in love with his new surroundings. 3Guendouzi thinks Marseille's ground is much better than Arsenal'sCredit: Getty And the French ace could be in for a frosty welcome if he does return to Arsenal after saying their ground doesn't compare to Marseille's Stade Velodrome. Although he acknowledged both clubs have massive stadiums, Guendouzi reckons the Gooners don't have the same passion as their French neighbours. Guendouzi explained: "The Marseille fans are incomparable. At Arsenal, there’s a big stadium, but it’s totally different. "The best atmosphere is here. It’s incredible to play in front of a crowd like this…it really lifts the players" The midfielder endured a torrid spell at Arsenal after signing for them in 2018 for around £7million. His time at the Emirates was marred with controversy, which included a bust-up with club boss Mikel Arteta. Most read...
    One of the witnesses to testify on Tuesday at the first U.S. House select committee to investigate the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol recalled supporters of then-President Donald Trump telling him, “Your mother’s a whore.” Daniel Hodges, an officer with the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, said in his opening testimony that, as Trump supporters walked from the Ellipse outside the White House toward the Capitol, he “noticed a commotion about half a block to my east and saw a crowd starting to coalesce around two figures.” “I ran to where they were and found a confrontation at the intersection of tenth and Constitution Avenue northwest. One counter protester, a black man, was backpedaling away from a white man on a Trump-labeled face mask, was closely following him with an outstretched arm,” recalled Hodges, who said that he and a colleague “first arrived and physically separated the two.” As that happened, said Hodges, “a crowd of Donald Trump’s people had gathered, they attempted to bait the counter protester into attacking, shouting insults such as ‘Your...
    JOE Biden has bizarrely denied "sucking the blood out of kids" as he clapped back at a far-fetched QAnon conspiracy theory. When pushed about claims the Democrats want to defund the police, the President hit back by likening the accusation to wild allegations pushed by QAnon supporters that a worldwide network of celebrities and politicians are part of a child sex-trafficking ring. 2Joe Biden hit back a bizarre QAnon conspiracy theory when pressed about his party's stance on defunding the policeCredit: Getty 2QAnon supporters stormed the Capitol back in January and continue to peddle bizarre theoriesCredit: AFP After deplaning from Marine One, Biden stopped to speak with reporters on the South Lawn when he was pushed on his party's stance on police funding and whether Democrats were "anti-police" The President insisted defunding the police is no the Democratic Party's position - despite some members calling for it during race-related riots last year.

    A Christian baker from Colorado has been fined after refusing to make a gender transition cake, as supporters claim he is being targeted by LGBT activists. Jack Phillips violated the state's anti-discrimination law by refusing to make the birthday cake for a transgender woman, the state judge ruled in the case. Phillips famously won a partial victory at the U.S. Supreme Court in 2018 for refusing to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. In Tuesday's ruling, Denver District Judge A. Bruce Jones said Autumn Scardina was denied a cake that was blue on the outside and pink on the inside to celebrate her gender transition on her birthday in violation of the law.  While Phillips said he could not make the cake because of its message, Jones said the case was about a refusal to sell a product, not compelled speech. He pointed out that Phillips testified during a trial in March that he did not think someone could change their gender and he would not celebrate 'somebody who thinks that they can.' 'The anti-discrimination laws are intended...
    Donald Trump has issued a speech vowing to 'take back the Senate, House and White House' ahead of his first speech since February. In a video shared shortly before the former president's appearance at the North Carolina Republican Convention in Greenville Saturday night, Trump said: 'I wanna thank everybody for the tremendous support you've shown.  We're going to take back the Senate, take back the House, we're gonna take back the White House and sooner than you think its going to be really something special.

    Former President Trump will hold two rallies in June as he looks to capitalize on a series of crises engulfing President Joe Biden and lay down a marker for 2024, according to an adviser familiar with planning. Those will be followed by a third event around July 3 and are expected to take the form of the airport rallies that dominated the closing months of last year’s election campaign. His team is in the process of selecting two venues from four possibles. Donald Trump was in New York City at the start of the week after flying north from his winter base in Florida. He is expected to hold two rallies in June as he enters a new phase of his political life “The president is anxious to get back out on the trail and we are getting a lot of offers and invitations from both candidates and political causes in different areas,” said the adviser. The rallies will be his first since he addressed supporters on Jan. 6 before a mob attacked the U.S. Capitol. Trump relocated...

    Former President Donald Trump launched a new communications platform - 'From the Desk of Donald J. Trump' - on Tuesday, as he teased to his supporters that they'll be 'very, very happy' when they hear his decision about running for president again.  The new webpage, www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk, allows supporters to share the statements Trump has been emailing to reporters to their Facebook and Twitter feeds, as the ex-president remains banned from both platforms.    Facebook's Oversight Board is expected to announce Wednesday whether Trump will be permanently banned from Facebook and Instagram.  The webpage is referred to as a 'beacon of freedom' in a time of 'lies and silence' in a promotional video, which shows imagery of Mar-a-Lago, where the former president has been living since leaving the White House.   To further excite supporters, Trump talked to conservative commentator Candace Owens for her Daily Wire talk show and teased a potential 2024 presidential bid.  'The answer is, I'm absolutely enthused.

    Former President Donald Trump appeared on Fox Business Thursday morning to discuss President Joe Biden’s first address of a joint session of Congress, and largely spoke about himself and took credit for the speed in which vaccines for Covid-19 were developed. Maria Bartiromo asked her guest about the FDA’s decision to pause the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after very rare instances of blood clotting raised concerns, which Trump dismissed as a “stupid thing to do.” Trump then pivoted to the set of American citizens who are hesitant to get the vaccine, which polls suggest, is largely comprised of his own base of supporters.  “There’s a big situation with a lot of people don’t want to take the vaccine,” he said, before blaming the J&J vaccine pause for adding to skepticism among those who aren’t eager to get vaccinated. “This played right into their hands and they want me to do public service messages and everything about everybody taking the vaccine,” he said. “And look, I guess in a certain way I’m the father of the vaccine because I was the...
    (CNN) — Former President Donald Trump’s continued promotion of the “big lie” about the 2020 election could still incite his followers to violence, the Justice Department and judges noted repeatedly this week, as courts weigh the future dangerousness of US Capitol riot defendants. Two federal judges this week brought up the disinformation about 2020 from right-wing figures, and even Trump himself, as they considered keeping alleged Capitol rioters in jail before trial. READ MORE: Maryland Resumes Johnson & Johnson COVID Vaccinations After CDC, FDA Lift Pause And prosecutors from the Justice Department are arguing more explicitly that violent threats stemming from Trump-backed conspiracy theories are still alive, and that Trump supporters could be called to act again. “It’s never too late” for pro-Trump extremist groups like the Proud Boys to mobilize, because the right-wing political climate hasn’t shifted much since Trump left office, federal prosecutor Jason McCullough argued at a hearing for one of the accused Proud Boys leaders earlier this week. The comments from prosecutors and judges demonstrate how Trump’s post-presidency lying about 2020 is complicating matters for some...
    DMX's family members and supporters gathered for a prayer vigil on Monday outside of the New York hospital where he remained on life support. The 50-year-old rap legend was admitted to the hospital on Friday, following a heart attack. The crowd outside White Plains Hospital called "DMX! DMX!" and when urged to by the main speaker, crossed their arms in the shape of an X. A woman's sobs reverberated as those in the audience heard a recording of the rapper, whose birth name is Earl Simmons.

    'Morning Joe' co-host Joe Scarborough tore into former President Donald Trump and his 'personality cult' Tuesday morning for being 'stupid' about COVID-19.  'When did the truth stop mattering to you so much that you were willing to put other people's lives at risk?' Scarborough asked of Trump. 'You're going out of your way to kill people.'  Scarborough's rant was prompted by revelations from CNN's documentary 'COVID WAR: The Pandemic Doctors Speak Out,' which aired Sunday night.  'Morning Joe' co-host Joe Scarborough tore into former President Donald Trump and his 'personality cult' Tuesday morning for being 'stupid' about COVID-19 'You're going out of your way to kill people,' Joe Scarborough said of former President Donald Trump (pictured)  Members of Trump's coronavirus taskforce spoke to CNN's Sanjay Gupta, with Dr. Deborah Birx saying that deaths after the first 100,000 were preventable.

    Former President Donald Trump is trying to squeeze money away from three of the most integral fundraising and electoral organizations in Republican politics as he aims to ensure Republican donors' money doesn't go to candidates who are disloyal to him.  The former president over the weekend sent "cease-and-desist" letters to the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) and the Republican National Committee (RNC) demanding that they stop using his name and likeness to raise money, Politico first reported.  The RNC was the first to publicly respond on Monday. RNC Chief Counsel J. Justin Riemer said in a letter to the counsel for Trump's "Save America PAC" that it will not stop using Trump in its fundraising pitches.  "Like President Trump, the NRC remains focused on electing Republican candidates and advancing conservative policies," the letter said. "The RNC, of course, has every right to refer to public figures as it engages in core, First Amendment political speech, and it will continue to do so in pursuit of these common goals."

    Donald Trump said Sunday he requested 10,000 National Guard troops deployed to Washington, D.C. before January 6 after realizing his rally would be larger than anticipated – but says the request was rejected by congressional leaders. In his latest defense, the former president told Fox News late Sunday evening that he was not actually watching the events unfold in real-time and claimed he reacted immediately when he was alerted to the ongoing attack on the Capitol. His assertion comes after his anticipated return to the political scene on Sunday at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where he delivered a 90-minute keynote address to a crowd of adoring supporters. Trump insisted he wanted the National Guard on standby to deploy to the nation's capital, and told Fox's 'The Next Revolution' host Steve Hilton that he was under the impression the message was conveyed to congressional leaders, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The former president said his understanding is that the request for troops was rejected because leaders in Congress didn't like the optics of 10,000 troops at the Capitol. 'So, you...

    Former President Donald Trump has told friends he has hundreds of millions of dollars in backing for a new social media venture that would give him an online presence and protect conservatives from being shut down online. Two sources familiar with discussions said investors included Silicon Valley figures motivated by fears of censorship and online “cancel culture.” Details emerged as Trump began a new phase of his post-presidency, giving television interviews from his Florida base in the week after his Senate impeachment acquittal. On Wednesday, he boasted about the millions of people who followed him on his now-shuttered Twitter and Facebook accounts and confirmed that he had considered buying a social media company.

    AN audience with Roman Abramovich - it’s the golden ticket for any Chelsea supporter and the rarest of opportunities for football reporters too. So when I stumbled across an impromptu fans’ forum with Chelsea’s secretive billionaire owner in 2007, it was one of the most surreal experiences I’ve ever had. 5Roman Abramovich once led a fans' forum in a Valencia hotel bar to explain why he'd sacked fan favourite Jose MourinhoCredit: Getty Images - Getty 5Abramovich felt the need to explain why he'd sacked fan-favourite Mourinho to supportersCredit: PA:Press Association Literally surreal, in that it was so unlikely, I wondered whether I’d dreamt it.

In the intervening 18 years, he has never spoken to another media outlet... but on a strange night in Valencia, I fluked it. Just a fortnight after Jose Mourinho’s first Stamford Bridge sacking had caused outrage among supporters, Chelsea travelled...
    Rudy Giuliani has admitted that his associate emailed Trump campaign officials requesting he be paid $20,000 per day to dispute the results of the November election.  Giuliani, who is one of Trump's personal lawyers, has previously denied demanding money for his legal services, saying he wanted to help the prove claims of electoral fraud free of charge.  However, in a phone conversation with The New York Times on Friday, the 74-year-old conceded that his associate, Maria Ryan, had sent an email to at least three Trump campaign officials on  November 4 demanding payment. Giuliani told the publication that he was as 'unaware' that the email was sent as he was 'out of town' at the time.  'I never had a single expectation of being paid a penny,' Giuliani told the Times.   'I feel extremely bad that I'm portrayed as some kind of money-grubbing ambulance chaser'.

    Donald Trump promised his supporters “we’ll see you soon” before bidding them farewell in his final speech as President of the United States. Trump held a rally at Joint Base Andrews before leaving Washington, eschewing political tradition by not participating in the peaceful transfer of power to President-elect Joe Biden. As he touted the endeavors of his administration, Trump extended his thanks to Vice President Mike Pence and said “I wish the new administration great luck and great success.” “I think they will have great success,” Trump said. “They have the foundation to do something really spectacular. We put it in a position like it’s never been before.” Trump did not mention his successor by name, nor was there any mention of the mob of his supporters who threatened to kill Pence as they stormed the U.S. Capitol earlier this month. Instead, Trump concluded by telling the crowd “we will be back in some form…Have a good life, we will see you soon.” Trump and First Lady Melania Trump continued to mingle with family and friends in the crowd while...
    MSNBC’s Chuck Todd opened Meet the Press Daily by telling viewers that he would not air President Donald Trump’s first televised comments since his supporters stormed the Capitol. The show opened on Tuesday with Todd informing viewers that Trump spoke to reporters earlier in the day, his first time doing so since he the mob of his supporters attacked the U.S. last week. “We, of course, are not going to play his comments due to concerns that he will be used as a rallying cry for bad acts to support him in his name,” Todd said. “But the president, as you’d expect, was defiant and some might wonder if he was a bit deranged.” Todd proceeded to deliver a breakdown of Trump’s comments before the press. He especially honed in on the president lashing out at the new push for his impeachment, plus his refusal to accept responsibility for ginning up the mob that broke into the Capitol.

    Post-riot accounts from last Wednesday reveal that not only did President Trump egg on supporters who wreaked havoc in the Capitol – but he was glued to the television as the events unfolded, incapable of responding to desperate pleas to use influence to stop it and enjoying seeing it unfold. There were two major areas where the president fell dramatically short of what was being asked of him: using his personal popularity with his followers to urge them to vacate the Capitol immediately; and using the vast powers of his office to try to speed a federal response.  But when key current and former aides and family members tried to reach him, he was 'busy enjoying the spectacle,' according to a Washington Post account. President Donald Trump called his pre-riot remarks 'totally appropriate' President Donald Trump was glued to the television at the White House as his supporters ransacked the Capitol As the historic mob invasion of the U.S. seat of legislative government unfolded, a variety of people with influence over Trump sought to get to him to...
    Arnold Schwarzenegger reacted to the violent mob of Trump supporters storming the Capitol with a video Sunday that drew a very clear parallel to Kristallnacht. “I grew up in Austria. I’m very aware of Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass. It was a night of rampage against the Jews carried out in 1938 by the Nazi equivalent of the Proud Boys,” the former California governor said. “Wednesday was the Day of Broken Glass right here in the United States.” He got very personal talking about the physical and emotional pain he witnessed from “broken men” when he was growing up who were riddled with guilt “over their participation in the most evil regime in history,” even his own father. Schwarzenegger said Trump is a failed leader who would “go down in history as the worst president ever” because of his attempts to overturn the results of an election… by misleading people with lies.” But he also called out Republicans who “enabled his lies and his treachery” and said their “spinelessness” makes them complicit. At one point he even...
    Donald Trump announced Friday he won't be going to Joe Biden's inauguration ceremony on January 20th, while his remaining aides and allies have described him as a 'total monster' and 'mad King George' as his presidency marches to a close. Trump has isolated himself his staff and the Republican Party, holed up in the Oval Office with a bunker mentality as aides pleaded with him to send a message of healing to the country in the aftermath of the MAGA mob storming Capitol Hill.  He's returned to Twitter after the social media network locked his account in the wake of his lackluster response to the riots in the Capitol. He launched an tweet containing ALL CAPS to thank his supporters, calling them 'great American Patriots.' 'The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!,' he wrote. And he announced, in an unprecedented break with historical tradition, that he will snub his...
    Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night called out President Donald Trump after he 'recklessly encouraged' his supporters to invade the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday sparking violence that has resulted in five fatalities. Carlson, a Trump ally who has spent the majority of his presidential term praising and protecting him, claimed that the president has now reached the end of his 'shelf life' and it was 'not healthy' for the nation to continue being 'focused on a single man'. The Fox host added that Trump has now reached his 'expiration date' and questioned whether the president is 'worth all of this time and attention'. However, Carlson did continue to defend the actions of Trump's loyalists, despite Wednesday's violent scenes, as he blasted the Republican party for not caring about the president's base and taunted them for having spent too long defending the 'personal reputations of its leaders'.

'Today's violent assault on our Capitol, an effort to subjugate American democracy by mob rule, was fomented by Mr. Trump,' Mattis said in a statement following Wednesday's insurrection on Capitol Hill.  'His use of the Presidency to destroy trust in our election and to poison our respect for fellow citizens has been enabled by pseudo political leaders whose names will live in infamy as profiles in cowardice.'  Mattis, a retired Marine general who served at Trump's secretary of defense for two years, went on to say that the country will 'come together' to 'overcome' the shocking events of January 6.  Former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis has issued an excoriating rebuke of President Donald Trump, saying he 'fomented' the attack on the U.S. Capitol 'His use of the Presidency to destroy trust in our election and to poison our respect for fellow citizens has...

Congressman Mike Gallagher posted a video to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon saying: 'Right now I am sheltered in place in my office because we have protesters who have stormed the Capitol – clashing with Capitol Police, forcing their way into Statutory Hall.

Davidson kicked off the segment by mentioning Mac's Public House, a Staten Island restaurant where owners have declared it a Covid-19 restriction 'autonomous zone' and repeatedly flouted state guidelines.

    Reuters November 14, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump’s supporters will take to the streets on Saturday to back his unsubstantiated claims of election fraud as he pushes ahead with a flurry of longshot legal challenges to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. Trump has made little headway in the courts with his lawsuits and for the first time on Friday he began to sound doubtful about his prospects, telling reporters “time will tell” who occupies the White House from Jan. 20. There have been other pro-Trump protests around the country since Biden was projected the winner on Nov. 7, but they have been small and unfolded with few incidents. The pro-Trump demonstrations in Washington and other cities are scheduled to feature a mix of the president’s backers, far-right personalities and members of the Oath Keepers militia and Proud Boys in a public display of support for his effort to stay in power. Organizers have given the rallies various names, including the Million MAGA March, the March for Trump and Stop the Steal. MAGA is an acronym for the Trump...
