In a tweet on July 26, Greene referenced an Instagram post made by the Argosy restaurant, a bar and burger joint located in the East Atlanta Village area of Georgia.

But Michigan couple Katelyn and Corey Love's May 31 wedding had a slightly more dramatic faux pas, thanks to their wedding photographer.  The couple's photographer accidentally called Katelyn "Taylor," which is Corey's ex-girlfriend's name, as she was taking pictures of them — twice.  Their videographer, John Pattyson Videography, captured the awkward incident and shared it on TikTok, where it's garnered over three million views since it was posted on July 6.  In the video, Katelyn and Corey pose with their bridal party on either side of...

    NBA player LeBron James and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in Los Angeles, California.Chelsea Lauren | FilmMagic | Getty Images The longtime white advisor to Black NBA superstar LeBron James was caught on tape telling a white ESPN reporter, "I'm exhausted. Between Me Too and Black Lives Matter, I got nothing left," a report revealed Sunday. The blunt comments by powerhouse communications maven Adam Mendelsohn — which referenced catchphrases used respectively for the movements seeking to reduce sexual violence against women, and police killings and brutality against Black people — came during a recorded phone call he had last summer with ESPN's NBA reporter Rachel Nichols, The New York Times reported. Nichols, who is white, had griped to Mendelsohn during that call about a Black reporter, Maria Taylor, getting the hosting spot for NBA finals pre- and postgame shows from their sports cable TV network, a spot that Nichols had expected would be hers, The Times reported. Nichols on that tape suggested Taylor was awarded that gig to Nichols' disadvantage because Taylor is Black — and because ESPN was under...
    Patrick Willis’ once-troublesome big toes are “not bad.” His memories are vivid about the exciting first and mercifully last times he wore the No. 52 jersey. He’s six years removed from a decorated 49ers career, and he’s grateful for all who’ve helped him get there. Willis, a day after the 49ers named him and John Taylor to their hall of fame, regaled reporters Thursday in a video conference that touched not only on his life but the current 49ers. Here are the highlights: 1. How is his health? Now 36, Willis revealed more than he perhaps ever has about the foot issues that prompted his 2015 retirement and ended an eight-year career. “People would say, ‘It’s just feet, it’s just a freaking toe, get it better.’ But that wasn’t the case. It was almost equivalent to an ACL (tear),” Willis said. “Anyone who’s had a bunion on their big toes, you know how bad it can feel. That’s everything I push off of. “After I had my surgery, it was bad. I did...
    Nearly 40 House Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, wrote to House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday and asked him to address Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's 'dangerous' behavior. The letter was spearheaded by Rep. Pramila Jayapal and said that she and her fellow lawmakers were concerned about 'dangerous, concerning, and unacceptable behavior' from the Georgia Republican. 'The Congresswoman’s harassment of her colleagues has reached an unacceptable level,' the letter states. 'We respectfully request that you work with her to address these issues and ensure that this type of behavior no longer continues.' The letter comes after repeated incidents between Greene and Democratic lawmakers.  She and Ocasio-Cortez, in particular, have argued in the hallways of Congress and on the House floor. After a May confrontation on the House floor, where Greene verbally confronted Ocasio-Cortez and then followed her out to the hallway to continue yelling, the New York Democrat considered getting a restraining order against Greene.  Nearly 40 House Democrats wrote to House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy and asked him to address Rep.

    (CNN)Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, who is under fire for likening vaccine requirements to the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany, once harshly condemned comparisons of migrant detention camps to the Holocaust as an "embarrassment to our country" that "should be shamed by everyone." The comments, made in a since-deleted Facebook live from summer 2019 that was saved by CNN's KFile, were in response to remarks made by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York in which she compared migrant detention facilities to concentration camps. "She should be shamed by everyone. That she's actually using those terms and making that comparison," Greene said. "And I think it's an embarrassment to our country, that we actually have a congresswoman that would do such a thing. And I'm calling her out big time. "I think everyone should call her out. She should never ever make that comparison. It's insulting, extremely insulting to the families who have family members that were murdered or survived concentration camps. And that just shows you a lot about who she is as a person. And...
    Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said she wouldn’t take down a statue of Adolf Hitler because of his historical significance in a newly unearthed video from 2020. Greene, who was then a candidate for Congress, appeared to argue there was a slippery slope for removing statues. “We’re seeing situations where Christopher Columbus, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, all kinds of statues are being attacked, and it seems to be just an effort to take down history,” Greene said, noting she supports keeping “all of our monuments.” “Whether I see a statue that may be something that I would fully disagree with, like Adolf Hitler, maybe a statue of Satan himself, I would not want to say ‘take it down.’ But again, it’s so that I can tell my children and teach others about who these people are, what they did, and what they may be about.” In 2020, @mtgreenee spoke in opposition to tearing down monuments, arguing that statues can be used to teach others about “what they did.” “Whether I see a statue that may be something that I...

Marjorie Taylor Greene says she's meeting with Trump 'soon' in Florida MORE (R-Ga.) said in a 2020 video that she would not take down a statue of Adolf Hitler or “Satan himself."  The comment comes amid a flurry of backlash after Greene repeated claims comparing mask policies to the holocaust.  In a newly discovered video of the then-candidate in 2020, Greene argues that she would disagree with removing a statue of Hitler, despite the Nazi leader and others representing “something I would fully disagree with.” “We're seeing situations where Christopher Columbus, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, all kinds of statues are being attacked, and it seems to be just an effort to take down history.

    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) doubled down on her controversial comments comparing Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to the Nazis because of her mask rules for the House, telling a local Arizona reporter that she had said nothing wrong, and “any rational Jewish person should also oppose “what’s happening with overbearing mask mandates.” On a Thursday Newsmax appearance, Greene criticized Pelosi for “running a tyrannical, oppressive workplace,” and then made the Nazi comparison: This woman is mentally ill. You know, we can look back in a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star and they were definitely treated like second class citizens, so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany. And this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about. Bianca Buono, a reporter with Arizona’s 12 News, spoke to Greene after the event she held in Mesa, Az. with Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), and asked her if she stood by her comments “comparing mask mandates to the Holocaust.” “No one should be...

ATLANTA (AP) — Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene, who expressed racist views and support for QAnon conspiracy theories in a series of online videos, has won a U.S. House seat representing northwest Georgia.

    Miles Taylor, a former Department of Homeland Security official, revealed himself to be "Anonymous," the self-described senior Trump administration official who claimed to be a part of the "resistance" despite a previous public denial. Taylor served as chief of staff to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and was also a counterterrorism adviser to then-White House chief of staff John Kelly. On Aug. 21, he explicitly said he was not "Anonymous" during an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper. He already came out against President Trump at that time, and he became a network contributor weeks later. Cooper asked him if he was aware of the identity of “Anonymous,” and Taylor answered, “I’m not. Look, that was a parlor game that happened in Washington, D.C. You have a lot of folks trying to think of who that might be. I’ve got my own thoughts about who that might be.” The anchor then said, “You’re not Anonymous,” to which the former Trump official responded, “I wear a mask for two things, Anderson: Halloweens and pandemics. So, no.” Taylor wrote the op-ed for...

    A lawyer for Breonna Taylor's family is calling for the public release of evidence presented to the grand jury that declined to indict three officers for her shooting death, but instead, brought charges against one fired officer for endangering Taylor's neighbors.

    Former Trump DHS official Miles Taylor unloaded on President Donald Trump, particularly on immigration policy, in a new interview. Taylor has been very vocal in the past few weeks about what he witnessed under President Donald Trump and how he’s supporting Joe Biden even though he’s a Republican. On the Daily Beast podcast The New Abnormal, Taylor laughed with Rick Wilson and Molly Jong-Fast about the RNC convention and lamented the direction the GOP has gone overall under Trump. Following a joke about MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, Taylor claimed that in a number of meetings with the president, they would be talking about an issue like border security and then suddenly Trump would say, “You know who’s just my favorite guy? The MyPillow guy. Do any of you have those pillows?” “These are my early exposures to the president, and I’m like, ‘What the actual fuck is happening right now?'” he added. Taylor claimed that with the exception of “a handful of sycophants,” most people in the administration understand that he’s “truly unfit for office” and it was a...
