Robert de Niro called President Trump a 'f***ing fool' in an impromptu foul-mouthed rant as he presented Meryl Streep with a best actress award on Tuesday night.
Introducing Streep at the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala in New York, De Niro went off script to call the President a 'f***ing idiot'.
The Oscar-winner also branded Trump the 'baby-in-chief' and 'jerk-off-in-chief' while discussing Streep's new film The Post, which is about the publication of the Pentagon Papers into the Vietnam War.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in credited U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday for helping to spark the first inter-Korean talks in more than two years, and warned that Pyongyang would face stronger sanctions if provocations continued.
The talks were held on Tuesday on the South Korean side of the demilitarized zone, which has divided the two Koreas since 1953, after a prolonged period of tension on the Korean peninsula over the North’s missile and nuclear programs.
North Korea ramped up its missile launches last year and also conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test, resulting in some of the strongest international sanctions yet.
The latest sanctions sought to drastically cut the North’s access to refined petroleum imports and earnings from workers abroad. Pyongyang called the steps an “act of war.”
Seoul and Pyongyang agreed at Tuesday’s talks, the first since December 2015, to resolve all problems between them through dialogue and also to revive military consultations so that accidental conflict could be averted.
“I think President Trump deserves big credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks, I want to show my gratitude,” Moon told reporters at his New Year’s news conference. “It could be a resulting work of the U.S.-led sanctions and pressure.”
Protesters gathered outside of the Archidona migrant detention centre on Monday, to protest against the deportation of around 50 Algerian citizens.
SOT, Ruben Quirante, spokesperson of 'Plataforma Ciudadana Contra el CIE' (Spanish): "577 Algerian immigrants are locked in this prison. The process carried out by the Spanish government has been illegal from the start, beginning by locking them in a jail instead of an internment centre and also their treatment has been illegal. This is like a jungle. There are no schedules on visits. The families come from France and wait for hours behind a door to not be able to hug them, because they communicate through a glass screen, with nothing like a telephone to speak."
SOT, Ruben Quirante, spokesperson of 'Plataforma Ciudadana Contra el CIE' (Spanish): "The death on December 29 of Mohamed Budalbala, who according to the media and Archidona’s judge has been a suicide and we ask for a clear, transparent and serious investigation. We ask that they don’t deport potential witnesses. We ask the government to stop the deportations, but Archidona's court has closed the case, many of the witnesses are already deported in Algeria and now they will not be able to talk about the death of this person."
MSNBC host Chris Matthews on Tuesday compared President Donald Trump's children to Uday and Qusay Hussein, who were the sons of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
The "Hardball" host was interviewing journalist Michael Wolff about his book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House when he made the comparison. Wolff had mentioned that his book’s main source, Steve Bannon, had conflicted with Trump's family during his time as a White House strategist, and Wolff said he became close with then-chief of staff Reince Priebus.
"I mean, Steve Bannon did not speak to Jared Kushner," Wolff said. "These factions in the White House that were absolutely cleaved, but gradually…Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon had an enormous amount of—they were polarized, let's say, in the early months of the administration, and they actually came together."
"I think that they became quite good friends because they understood…this was an entirely anomalous situation that they had found themselves in, and it was coming apart," Wolff added.
"I guess when you're dealing with Uday and Qusay every day, you do find common purposes," Matthews replied about Priebus and Bannon’s relationship to Kushner and, presumably, other members of the family.
Matthews also gave a ringing endorsement to Wolff’s book, which the author has had to defend from numerous charges of inaccuracies.
"Congratulations, Michael Wolff," Matthews said. "Fire and Fury—I don’t have to help this book, but go out and buy it or you're missing out on the big story of this year so far."
It was a long and meandering interview, but toward the beginning, Matthews also discussed Bannon’s conflict with Trump’s children.
Bannon himself left the White House after about seven months, and Trump has denounced him for the comments he made to Wolff. Trump said Wolff's book is "full of lies," and on Tuesday Bannon also lost his job at Breitbart.
An “underage” migrant, who was presented as being in a romantic relationship with an underage girl in a controversial German children’s channel television programme, has admitted he is actually an adult.
The documentary Malvina, Diaa and Love was broadcast in November on the publicly-funded German television channel Kika, which is directed at children aged three to 13, and has been slammed by many as “propaganda” as it favourably presents a largely one-sided relationship between a 16-year-old German girl and an adult Syrian asylum seeker.
The Syrian named Diaa was said to be around the same age as 16-year-old Malvina but later admitted he is actually 19 years old and some have even alleged he could be over 20, Die Welt reports.
The documentary, which portrays Malvina as madly in love with the Syrian, shows Diaa telling his girlfriend to behave more modestly, wear less revealing clothing, and even consider converting to Islam for him.
Watches German police do absolutely nothing as left-wing Antifa terrorists controlled by Nazi collaborator George Soros, the rate and pelt police in Germany with rocks, stones, sticks, as well as any other thing they can get their hands on.
You'll notice the police stand there idly and do absolutely nothing as their berated and threatened with death.
GALVESTON, Texas -- A mother, father and their two young sons were shot to death early Monday at a Southeast Texas beachfront hotel in what police are investigating as a triple killing followed by a suicide in which the woman was the shooter. CBS affiliate KHOU reports Flor de Maria Pineda, husband Mauricio Morales, their 10-year-old son Mauricio, Jr. and 5-year-old son David all died on the eighth floor of the San Luis hotel in Galveston Monday.
Investigators said Flor shot her husband, two sons then turned the gun on herself.
Galveston police Capt. Josh Schirard said the family from Baytown about 35 miles north of Galveston checked in Sunday evening at the San Luis Resort.
Police were summoned to the upscale 250-room hotel on the Gulf of Mexico after a guest in a nearby room on the eighth floor called police about 4:30 a.m. and reported popping sounds. Officers entered the locked room and found the man and two boys in bed with apparent gunshot wounds and the woman on the floor, also with a gunshot wound.
When police arrived at the room, the door was dead-bolted from the inside and they heard "faint moaning," KHOU reports.
A young child was dramatically pulled from the rubble in Eastern Ghouta, Syria. Recent airstrikes aimed at Saqba, a small town just 4 miles east of Damascus, reportedly killed 17 civilians.
A teacher is facing 16 counts of raping two students from an all-boys school more than 20 years ago.
Gaye-Lee McKeown was 27 in 1997 when she allegedly sexually assaulted the students from Birrong Boys High School in Sydney's south-west.
The 47-year-old suspended teacher briefly fronted Bankstown Local Court on Wednesday to face 16 counts of aggravated sexual assault and five indecency charges, adding up to 21 charges, Nine News reported.
Author Michael Wolff admitted he didn’t interview any of President Trump’s Cabinet members for his anti-Trump book Fire & Fury.
Wolff made the admission on Monday in an interview on “CBS This Morning.”
Host Norah O’Donnell asked Wolf, “Did you speak to any members of the president’s Cabinet for this book?”
Wolff responded, “I did not.”
You did not?” O’Donnell repeated.
“I did not,” Wolff confirmed.
She then asked Wolff if he ever interviewed Vice President Mike Pence.
“I did not,” Wolff said again.
O’Donnell also noted Trump denied having ever been interviewed by Wolff.
“The president denies he ever spoke to you for the book, at all,” O’Donnell said.
“I probably think he had no idea he was speaking to me for this book,” Wolff said. “When I would meet the president in the White House we would chat as though we were friends.”
Scientists have grown the first functioning muscles using stem cells created from skin.
The breakthrough holds promise for understanding and treating rare muscular diseases.
Muscles were grown using skin cells that had been “reprogrammed” to an original state, in which they are referred to as pluripotent stem cells.
These cells can then be encouraged to grow into muscle cells by flooding them with a substance called Pax7.
James Kallstrom: There’s no question the Clinton Foundation… is a criminal conspiracy. I mean I investigated the RICO Statute for years, and the FBI. I mean this puts our investigations of organized crime to shame from the standpoint it operated. I mean, its just a giant slushfund. You know…get a bunch of Gulfstream fives, fly around the world, and buy wedding gowns, pay for weddings. I mean the tiny little amount of money that goes to charity, and I even question if those are charities. It’s preposterous why the IRS has not come down upon them earlier is beyond me. But there’s no question that it is beyond a criminal conspiracy and all those other things… the uncovering of names, the Uranium One thing, and all this other stuff.
At least five people were killed and homes were swept from their foundations Tuesday as heavy rain sent mud and boulders sliding down hills stripped of vegetation by a gigantic wildfire that raged in Southern California last month.
Rescue crews used helicopters to lift people to safety because of blocked roads, and firefighters slogged through waist-high mud to pull a muck-covered 14-year-old girl out of the ruins of a home in Montecito, northwest of Los Angeles, where she had been trapped for hours. She was taken away on a stretcher.
Five bodies were found in and around Montecito, Santa Barbara County Fire Department Capt. Dave Zaniboni said.
Porn star Olivia Nova has died aged 20, her agent confirmed.
LA Direct Models said they were "beyond shocked by the sudden death."
In a statement they said: "While only represented by Direct Models for a short period of time, we came to know Olivia as a beautiful girl with a very sweet and gentle personality.
"Another one, way too young, we are beyond shocked and most certainly, it was completely out of the blue. Rest in peace, sweet angel."
The cause of death is not yet known.
THOUSANDS of flying foxes died in an Australian heatwave so severe it has melted tarmac.
The animals fell from the trees as they were boiled alive in temperatures exceeding 40C in Campbelltown in New South Wales.
A local animal charity posted these pictures of the dead flying foxes
Animal welfare volunteers battled to save the lives of the hundreds of babies and some adults in distress but the death toll is believed to be in the thousands.
A spokesman from the charity Help Save the Wildlife and Bushlands in Campbelltown said: "The efforts of our volunteers yesterday was both heroic and heartbreaking.
"In extremely trying conditions they worked tirelessly to provide sub-cutaneous fluids to the pups that could be reached and many lives were saved.
"But sadly many lives were lost too.
"Hundreds of mainly young flying-foxes were lost to the heat yesterday and the final count could run to thousands."
“I don’t know about that,” Warren responded. “I’m just glad to see her using her voice out there. She is a strong and powerful woman who has a lot to say.”
As Meryl Streep and other women attending the Golden Globes stage a silent protest against sexual harassment in Hollywood on Sunday, Donald Trump Jr. sent out a tweet condemning the actress for her “sickening hypocrisy” when it comes to her friendships with men accused of abuse, namely Roman Polanski and Harvey Weinstein.
“Not only did Meryl Streep call Harvey a god but she gave a standing ovation to child rapist roman Polanski at the Oscars,” Trump Jr. tweeted. “She tries to be a moral compas [sic] for others… No thanks.”
The president’s son attached a Snopes article posted last year after Streep gave an impassioned speech against Trump at the Golden Globes. The article highlighted a video from the 2003 Oscars, when Roman Polanski won Best Director for “The Pianist.” After Harrison Ford announced Polanski’s victory, a shot of the crowd showed Streep giving him a standing ovation. Polanski was not in attendance to receive the award, as he fled the U.S. in 1978 just before he was to be sentenced after pleading guilty to statutory rape.
Sickening hypocrisy. Not only did Meryl Streep call Harvey a god but she gave a standing ovation to child rapist roman Polanski at the Oscars. She tries to be a moral compas for others… No thanks.
Thailand's Prime Minister has evaded journalists' questions by bringing out a life-sized cardboard cut-out of himself and telling reporters to quiz it instead of him.
Prayuth Chan-ocha then turned around and walked off, leaving the mock-up behind, to bemused looks and awkward laughter from the Government House press pack.
The Prime Minister had briefly spoken to the media after attending an event promoting upcoming Children's Day, but deployed his cut-out before anyone could ask him about a number of pressing political issues.
President Donald Trump's appearance at the College Football Playoff championship has apparently drawn the ire of some of its attendants — including a key member of the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Ahead of Alabama's matchup against Georgia in the title game, running back Bo Scarbrough could be seen (and heard) yelling "F— Trump" while the Tide walked off the field after pregame warmups.
It will be interesting to see what ramifications — if any — Scarbrough faces for his comments. For his part, Bo denies making that specific comment; he insists he said 'F— Georgia.'
Garbage is piling up on city streets across all five boroughs after Thursday’s winter storm, and many residents complain their trash hasn’t been picked up since Christmas.
As CBS2’s Lisa Rozner reported, the Department of Sanitation says around 40,000 tons of garbage has gone uncollected in the last week.
Monday’s trash sat on the curb, adding to mounds of bombogenesis snow and even more garbage dating back to the holidays.
“It’s grungy and it’s dirty and it stinks,” Murray Hill resident Dan Kaufman said, “just like this administration.”
“It’s horrible, this is disgusting,” another Murray Hill resident told WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond. “This seems like it’s gotten completely out of control.”
Last year, Eminem released his ninth studio album, Revival, featuring tracks with Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran, and Alicia Keys.
Despite the celebrated guests, the majority of critics were particularly harsh about the rapper’s Trump-bashing effort.
Marshall Mathers has seemingly taken the criticism to heart, posting a remix of Revival tack “Chloraseptic,” featuring some stinging barbs aimed at those who disliked the album and the Beyoncé-featuring track and lead single ‘Walk on Water’.
The F.B.I. report detailing the perceived BIE threat specifically discusses the shooting of Dallas police officers in July 2016. The document was prepared by the F.B.I Domestic Terrorism Analysis Unit, and has shown an effort to “criminalize” political organizers with progressive and revolutionary ethics. The Trump administration and prior Presidents have made their desire to derail black revolutionaries through declarations and actions crystal clear. Our struggle as change agents is to instruct and liberate the masses with revolutionary discourse, and we will continue to do so.
“Operation CAT (Community Anti Terrorism) 4/2/2016 BAIR vs South Dallas was the birth of Geronimo Tactical and it’s operations. A group of dedicated Men and Women from HPNGC decided that they wanted to take militancy and readiness to the next level with actual weekly training and preparation. Geronimo Tactical want to raise the bar of left wing militants ability to protect themselves and community by fostering a culture of elite training. Geronimo Tactical will and still maintains its solidarity with HPNGC and all RBG/ Revolutionary Formations and looks forward to continue to provide support in the near future. This group is for social media organization and psychological preparation. This project is labeled HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL. We are the only people allow in this group.”
In a 2013 BBC interview with Will Gompertz to discuss her move The Butler, Oprah said in order to achieve racial progress, there is an entire generation of prejudiced people who “just have to die”.
“Of course the problem is not solved. As long as people can be judged by the color of their skin, the problem is not solved. As long as there are people who still-and there’s a whole generation-I said this for apartheid in South Africa, I said this for my own community in the South. There’s still generations of people, old people who are born bred and marinated in it and that prejudice and racism and they just have to die.”
Teacher Deyshia Hargrave was questioning the school board how they can vote to give the superintendent a raise when school employees have not gotten a raise in years. Security officer from the parish Marshal’s Office told her to leave the room and he would soon arrest her in the hall and call the city police and put her in a patrol unit.
Republican-led House and Senate committees are investigating whether leaders of the Russia counterintelligence investigation had contacts with the news media that resulted in improper leaks, prompted in part by text messages amongst senior FBI officials mentioning specific reporters, news organizations and articles.
In one exchange, FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page engaged in a series of texts shortly before Election Day 2016 suggesting they knew in advance about an article in The Wall Street Journal and would need to feign stumbling onto the story so it could be shared with colleagues.
“Article is out, but hidden behind paywall so can’t read it,” Page texted Strzok on Oct. 24, 2016.
“Wsj? Boy that was fast,” Strzok texted back, using the initials of the famed financial newspaper. “Should I ‘find’ it and tell the team?”
The text messages, which were reviewed by The Hill, show the two FBI agents discussed how they might make it appear they innocently discovered the article, such as through Google News alerts.
“I can get it like I do every other article that hits any Google News alerts, seriously,” Strzok wrote, adding he didn’t want his team hearing about the article “from someone else.”
Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz sounded off on claims the 25th Amendment should be used to remove President Trump over his mental capacity.
Dershowitz, a Democrat who supported Hillary Clinton, said calls for removal are "very dangerous."
"There’s only one thing worse than trying to criminalize political differences and that’s trying to psychiatrize them," he said. "These psychiatrists who are trying to diagnose without having even met the man. That’s what they did in Russia."
Yale University psychiatrist Dr. Brandy X. Lee told the "Washington Examiner" that several Democratic senators and one Republican senator met with her after she published analysis questioning Trump's mental health.
However, Lee's statements have been found to violate the "Goldwater Rule" -- an ethical standard set forth by the American Psychiatric Association regarding evaluating politicians or people they have not met.
Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his two sons and a militia member will not face a retrial on charges that they led an armed rebellion against federal agents in 2014.
A federal judge on Monday said the federal prosecutors' conduct was "outrageous" and "violated due process rights" of the defendants.
U.S. District Court Judge Gloria Navarro dismissed the charges against the four men "with prejudice," meaning they cannot face trial again. She said a new trial would not be sufficient to address the problems in the case and would provide the prosecution with an unfair advantage going forward.
The judge criticized both the prosecution and the FBI for not providing evidence to the defense as required under court rules. "The court finds that the universal sense of justice has been violated," Navarro said.
Navarro said it was clear the FBI was involved in the prosecution of the case, and that it was not a coincidence that most of the withheld evidence came from the FBI.
She said the prosecution's reliance on the FBI and failure to look beyond the documents the FBI provided represented an "intentional abdication of its responsibility." Essentially, she said the prosecution decided not to follow up because the evidence would have worked in the Bundys' favor.
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough's story of asking Donald Trump to his face if he could read sounded different this week than it did in 2015 when he told it to columnist Peggy Noonan.
While Scarborough recounted the story jovially in 2015 and complimented Trump's "gut instinct and strength," he told it with a more sinister vibe with different details in 2018.
Scarborough penned an op-ed for the Washington Post this week recounting the time he spoke with Trump after the second Republican presidential debate in September of 2015 and quizzed on him on whether he read:
Mika Brzezinski and I had a tense meeting with Trump following what I considered to be a bumbling debate performance in September 2015. I asked the candidate a blunt question.
"Can you read?"
"I’m serious, Donald. Do you read?" I continued. "If someone wrote you a one-page paper on a policy, could you read it?"
Taken aback, Trump quietly responded that he could while holding up a Bible given to him by his mother. He then joked that he read it all the time.
Just a few years ago as massive protests rocked Iran things like this video would not be seen in public fearing execution by the oppressive terrorist sponsoring regime of Iran.
This was mainly due to the fact that the United States completely turned its back on the people of Iran and instead supported the regime that is now on the way out. This due to the Obama administration's unwavering in signing the now defunct nuclear deal that cost the United States nearly half a trillion dollars!
Today, the Trump administration does with the Obama administration should have, support the protesters! Which is led to massive protests in the streets and moments like this where even children chant against the oppressive regime in hopes for freedom.
In 2005, Oprah Winfrey accused luxury store Hermes in Paris of turning her away when she stopped in to purchase an expensive watch for singer Tina Turner. A spokesperson for the TV personality later referred to the incident as her “crash moment.”
“Crash” was a 2004 film that centered around the damaging effects of racism. The phrase “crash moment” refers to “situations where a party feels discriminated against on the basis of skin color,” CNN reported in 2005.
The claim is extremely similar to Oprah’s recent claim of discrimination she supposedly experienced at a high-end boutique in Zurich, Switzerland. In that case, she says a sales assistant refused to show her a $38,000 handbag because it was too expensive for her. The sales assistant and the store manager have both strongly denied the allegations.
As it turned out, Oprah and her team arrived at Hermes at around 6:45 p.m. on June 14, 2005, which was about 15 minutes after the store had closed and was setting up a private PR event. A store spokesperson said a security guard informed the star that the store was closed. Oprah was given a card and told to come back the next day.
Surveillance footage of the exchange backed up the store’s account. Oprah apparently wanted the store to allow her to make a quick purchase, but was denied.
Oprah used to be highly respected. Millions watched her on TV. Some even claimed to love the woman. But now, her real self is coming to light.
In recent months, Oprah was quoted saying the only reason people do not like Barack Obama (whose real name is Barry Soetoro) is because he is black. Actually, he ISN’T black. He is HALF black.
That statement by Oprah is both racist and enormously ignorant.
Barack Obama, whose real name is Barry Soetoro, has a history of lies, cover-ups, insults to Christianity, assaults on the U.S. Constitution, an “apology” tour around the world following his first successful election, and surrounded by controversy like the still questionable birth certificate, his uncle who was here illegally and who Obama lied about knowing, his attendance in a church where the “minister” screamed “God damn America!”. There is MUCH about Obama which gives substantial reasons NOT to like him.
His half this and half that breeding has NOTHING to do with why a majority of U.S. citizens have had enough of him. He’s done plenty to warrant the disgust of citizens.
Back to Oprah.
I am surprised she would join other African-Americans in pulling the race card. I guess when black babies are born, they get more than a birth certificate. They are also given a race card.
NOW, it is reported (see link below) Oprah told the BBC during an interview:
“There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism,” Oprah said, “and they just have to die.”
That’s right, according to Oprah, when everyone who ever had a racist ancestor dies, America will be set free from all of its problems.
Oh, my God! I now see how racist, how hateful, and how damn ignorant Oprah Winfrey really is.
In spite of all her money, she has proven she is nothing more than a deeply racist woman with a huge bank account.
Three people were injured Monday after a fire broke out on the roof of Trump Tower in New York City, authorities said.
The Fire Department of New York said the fire was in the building's heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit and is now under control.
The injuries were to a firefighter who was hurt when debris fell on him, an engineer who attempted to put out the fire with an extinguisher and inhaled smoke, and another civilian whose injuries were not immediately disclosed, the FDNY said.
None of the injuries were life-threatening. The two civilians were treated at the scene and refused further medical aid, the FDNY said.
