    Former President Donald Trump mocked President Joe Biden, 78, for briefly dozing off on Monday before his speech at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow on Monday.   'Even Biden couldn't stand hearing so much about the Global Warming Hoax, the 7th biggest Hoax in America,' Trump joked in an email, after seeing pictures of the snoozing Biden.  '...followed closely behind by the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, Russia, Russia, Russia, Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2 and, of course, the "No Collusion" finding of the Mueller Report,' Trump added.  'Biden went to Europe saying Global Warming is his highest priority, and then promptly fell asleep, for all the world to see, at the Conference itself. Nobody that has true enthusiasm and belief in a subject will ever fall asleep!'  Trump's comments came after his political team announced that he was holding a virtual rally on the election eve of Virginia's governor race on behalf of Glenn Youngkin, the Republican nominee. Thunberg recently chastised Britain and other nations for 'empty words and promises', accusing them of...
    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie mocked President Joe Biden for folding to the progressive wing of his party during a panel discussion Sunday on ABC's This Week.  'And why should we be surprised? He couldn't stand up to the Taliban,' Christie charged, getting a stern reaction from Democrat Donna Brazile, who was also seated at the table.  Christie, a Republican who could mount another presidential bid in 2024, proclaimed that the Biden of 2020 - who ran as the moderate answer to progressives like Sen. Bernie Sanders - was 'dead and buried.' Former New Jersey Gov.

    Donna Brazile and Chris Christie had a rousing tete-a-tete after the latter accused President Joe Biden of giving in first to the Taliban, then to progressive Democrats. The former DNC chair and the Republican former New Jersey governor were on ABC’s This Week for a panel discussion on Biden’s attempts to get his infrastructure agenda through Congress. Jon Karl, who was subbing in for George Stephanopoulos, started by asking Brazile if Democrats are currently in a “circular firing squad,” given the party’s internal debates about government spending and the reconciliation bill. Brazile rejected the notion that Democrats are in complete disarray with their “robust conversation,” plus she pointed to the fact that Biden and Congress agreed to a short-term spending bill to temporarily avoid a government shutdown. After Brazile touted the Democratic agenda and the panel analyzed the Congressional status quo, Christie eventually got in and pronounced the current squabble “the death of 2020 Joe Biden.” Referring to Biden’s recent meeting with House Democrats to move his agenda along, Christie continued to hammer the president for supposedly submitting to the...

    Two little girls are running a lemonade stand with proceeds for organ donations in memory of their late sister.  Makenzie Madsen of West Jordan, Utah died at age 14 last summer while waiting for a heart transplant. Now, her sisters are celebrating her life and memory by helping others by donating proceeds from the sweet sidewalk business to those in need of organ transplants through DonorConnect, an organization that coordinates and registers donor registries.  Sisters Myleigh Madsen, 9, and Makayla Madsen, 7, build a lemonade stand to raise awareness for organ donations to honor their late sister Makenzie.  (Courtesy of Monica Madsen) "Her little strong personality is still pushing people and helping my girls," Monica Madsen, Makenzie's mother, told FOX News of Makenzie inspiring her younger sisters, Myleigh Madsen, 9, and Makayla Madsen, 7 to build the lemonade stand. Makenzie was born with congenital heart disease and at 1-year-old had to have a heart transplant, Madsen said, adding that her heart became weaker as she got older.  Madsen was taken to the hospital in 2019 when she went...
    (CNN)Crosley Green believes he's free. He's not. There are serious doubts about his 1990 murder conviction, which a federal court vacated in 2018. Citing the overturned conviction and concerns about Covid-19, a judge has released Green from prison while Florida's attorney general challenges the federal court's decision. The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals could rule against Green any day, sending him back to Calhoun Correctional Institution.Green doesn't dwell on it. He's more concerned with the squirrels in his brother-in-law's yard, which Green is forbidden to leave. If he goes to the mailbox outside a 30-minute window in the morning, his ankle monitor goes off, alerting authorities.To Green, this is freedom. He revels in having breakfast, watching the news, taking his coffee outside, lighting a cigarette and feeding the squirrels some almonds, bread or whatever he can find around the Titusville home. He feels a kinship with his furball friends.

    Nurse practitioner Stephanie Lundblad (left) and Del Shea Perry, mother of Hardel Sherrell, (right) detail horrifying jail conditions Sherrell allegedly endured before his death. It took more than two years of a Black mother’s repeated and public questioning for Minnesota officials to take seriously an investigation into her son's death. But Del Shea Perry’s work, bolstered by a nurse practitioner’s gripping account in letters and on NBC-affiliated KARE 11 News, is finally beginning to inform legislative reform in Minnesota that would among other things improve requirements for jails to report neglect. Perry’s 27-year-old son, Hardel Sherrell, was all but left to die at the Beltrami County Jail, and even after nurse practitioner Stephanie Lundblad’s advocacy for the man, he died on Sept. 2, 2018. Jail staffers had accused him of faking paralysis, Lundblad said in her first public interview, held last week with KARE News.  She is a central witness in an FBI investigation of the Beltrami County Jail, and the level of neglect she described is simply unconscionable. “Felt like I had witnessed a murder,” she told KARE News. Warning: The videos in this story contain disturbing jail...
    More On: danny masterson Danny Masterson pushes for delay in rape trial, blames Leah Remini ‘That ‘70s Show’ actor Danny Masterson pleads not guilty to rape Lawsuits against Danny Masterson must go through Scientology mediation Rape case against ‘That 70s Show’ actor to move forward One of actor Danny Masterson’s accusers delivered tearful testimony this week in a California court, claiming she was drifting in and out of consciousness on a night 18 years ago when she said she found him raping her. “When I came to, he was on top of me,” the woman, who identified herself as Jen B, said Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court. “The first thing I recall is grabbing his hair to pull him off.” Jen B. took the stand for a preliminary hearing where a judge will rule whether there’s probable cause to call for a trial for the “That ’70s Show” actor, who is accused of raping three women nearly two decades ago. The woman — who describes herself as a second-generation Scientologist — testified that she and Masterson were part...
    New York Times journalists launched a crusade against Donald Trump during his presidency because he didn't give them the respect and regard they were used to, a former Washington correspondent for the paper claims in a new memoir.  Robert M. Smith says Times reporters engaged in 'spasms of adolescent pouting' with their 'biased' coverage of the Trump administration because they couldn't stand being challenged by the former president.  Smith takes a 'critical look' at his former employer and how he believes it 'lost its impartiality' when reporting on Trump, in his new memoir, Suppressed: Confessions of a Former New York Times Washington Correspondent, published May 14.   'The suppression of news is alive and well even at the New York Times,' Smith writes.  The media's reaction to Trump's contempt, he says, was like the 'impotent anger of the little boy or girl whose weekly hot fudge sundae is denied, or whose cherished doll has been taken away.'  He also accuses Times reporters of being out of touch with working class people and blind to the appeal of the Republican president.  Ironically one...
    Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall famously have tension. HBO On-screen chemistry between fictional best friends doesn't always lead to friendship off-screen. For every success story, there's a heated feud between actors who pretend they like each other. Now, with the official "SATC" revival, the beef between SJP and Kim Cattrall is back in headlines. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Acting is a unique profession in which you can find yourself sequestered with your co-workers for 15 hours a day, seven days a week. So it makes sense that personalities clash and drama ensues. But it's always sad to find out that your BFF goals couldn't actually stand being in a room together, like Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi, who played dynamic duo Alicia and Kalinda on "The Good Wife." And what hasn't been said about the legendary falling out of Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall on "Sex and the City"? Here are 16 on-screen besties who reportedly couldn't stand each other off-screen.
    SACRAMENTO —  “Happy Days Are Here Again.” For decades, that was the unofficial theme song of the Democratic Party. A band played the song at the 1932 Democratic National Convention that nominated Franklin Delano Roosevelt for president. Then FDR made it his campaign song. As a young man I loved the song — until the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago. Starting then, I abhorred it for 52 years. I was a newspaper reporter, sitting in the convention hall during the joyless meeting’s final night when the band struck up “Happy Days.” Outside, the cops were beating up thousands of kids who were protesting the Vietnam War. Inside, pro-war and antiwar factions had ripped apart the party. Delegates nominated Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey for president. Millions considered him a stooge of the war-pushing President Lyndon B. Johnson. With Democrats fractured, Republican Richard Nixon was elected in November. That year, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. were assassinated. There were very few happy days for Democrats — or for America — in 1968. The song was...
    New Edition wore their own clothes for their breakthrough “Candy Girl” music video back in 1983. “We did not have a wardrobe budget, so those clothes that you see in that video, that’s what we were walking around in,” the R&B group’s lead singer, Ralph Tresvant, told Page Six Style. “When we first started making money, everybody was doing the nameplate chains and rings. It was all about Adidas, Jordache jeans with the Lacoste shirt and the Gazelle glasses back in the day, it was that vibe.” Thanks to New Edition’s success, Tresvant, now 52, was able to purchase a Porsche with pink leather seats and burgundy trim at the age of just 17 — but he doesn’t remember all of his early splurges quite as fondly. “I just started getting things people got when they were fly, but the thing I couldn’t stand was this waterbed,” he recalled. “That would have to be my worst purchase I ever made. Every time you got on it, it had to rock five minutes before it got to settle. You...
    Actor Saqib Saleem admits he is not a great writer. He says he has been trying to write a secret set for stand-up comedy over the past five years but has never been able to complete it. “For the last five years, I have been trying to write my secret set for stand-up comedy, which I have never been able to complete. It also has to do with the fact that I am not a great writer,” Saqib said. 83: Saqib Saleem Opens Up About Playing Cricket Legend Mohinder Amarnath in Kabir Khan’s Sports Drama The actor’s interest in stand-up comedy has increased lately because of his upcoming role in “Comedy Couple”, a rom-com co-starring Shweta Basu Prasad that is based in Gurgaon against the backdrop of the burgeoning stand-up comedy scene in the city. “Over the past six months, I have been watching a lot of stand-up comedy. First I was watching it in general but then I started watching it for the film and I really enjoy it,” he said. He hopes one day he will have a...
    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump likes to make the false assertion that, perhaps save for Abraham Lincoln, "nobody has ever done for the Black community" what Trump has done. But what he said -- or rather, what he didn't say -- during the first 2020 presidential debate on Tuesday illustrated anew just how repellent he is on matters of race."Are you willing, tonight, to condemn White supremacists and militia groups and to say they need to stand down?" the moderator, "Fox News Sunday" anchor Chris Wallace, asked Trump.Shrugging, the President equivocated."Sure, I'm willing to do that. But I would say almost everything I see is from the left wing, not from the right wing," he said.When Wallace and Biden pressed Trump to be specific in his condemnation, tossing out "White supremacists" and the "Proud Boys" as suggestions, Trump obfuscated.Read More"Proud Boys, stand back and stand by. But I'll tell you what. I'll tell you what. Somebody's got to do something about antifa and the left, because this is not a right-wing problem," he said, seemingly giving orders to, instead of disavowing,...
    The Constitution, for now, is pretty much dead. Swish that around in your mouth a little bit. Taste it before you simply spit it out as too bitter to be possible. Because if we're being honest, our governing document simply doesn't govern anymore. It is ignored. It is manipulated. It is mocked. Yeah, it's more than possible. In fact, it simply is what it is. And like Dr. Strange once said, “I'm here to protect your reality, d-bag." When Ben Franklin warned he and the rest of those hetero-normative fascists once known as the Founding Fathers were giving us a "republic if we can keep it" they weren't kidding. It turns out, we couldn't keep it. We grew complacent, and just a little cowardly if we're being honest. Content to think that just voting for a bunch of Republicans who hate us at least as much as the Democrats do (albeit for different reasons) was the stuff of Lexington and Concord. As a result, our civic bedrock has been blown asunder. Sure,...
    Donald Trump struck out at his niece Mary and former National Security Advisor John Bolton Friday over their tell-all memoirs about the president.  In a Twitter tirade, Trump claimed that he is the 'ultimate member of The Book of the Month Club' because of the recent string of scathing stories told about him in new blockbuster books.  The president launched into Bolton calling him a 'lowlife dummy' and a 'war mongering fool' before accusing him of breaking the law.  He then rounded on niece Mary Trump who he called a 'mess' and claimed that his parents couldn't stand her while also accusing her of breaking the law.   President Donald Trump struck out at his niece May and former National Security Advisor John Bolton on Twitter Friday evening over their tell-all memoirs about the president Trump accused them both of breaking the law calling his niece a 'mess' and Bolton a 'fool' 'I am the ultimate member of The Book of the Month Club,' Trump began Friday evening.  'First I have lowlife dummy John Bolton,...
