From the “failing” New York Times:
Mr. Trump also criticized media outlets, including The New York Times, for failing to adequately cover the Rice controversy — while singling out Fox News and the host Bill O’Reilly for praise, despite a Times report of several women who have accused Mr. O’Reilly of harassment. The president then went on to defend Mr. O’Reilly, who has hosted him frequently over the years.
“I think he’s a person I know well — he is a good person,” said Mr. Trump, who during the interview was surrounded at his desk by a half-dozen of his highest-ranking aides, including the economic adviser Gary Cohn and the chief of staff, Reince Priebus, along with Vice President Mike Pence.
“I think he shouldn’t have settled; personally I think he shouldn’t have settled,” said Mr. Trump. “Because you should have taken it all the way. I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.”
Well, five women have 13 million items that prove Bilge O did something wrong.
She grabbed him by the pussy. No kidding (via TMZ):
Scott Baio has filed a police report claiming the wife of the Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer went nuts on him at a function with their elementary school kids … physically attacking him over his support of Donald Trump.
Law enforcement tells TMZ, Baio says he was at an event with his daughter Saturday in Thousand Oaks, CA, when Nancy Mack confronted him. Mack, who’s married to drummer Chad Smith, is a vocal anti-Trump supporter … who has called the Prez-elect racist … began berating and cursing Baio, one of Trump’s strongest celebrity supporters.
We’re told Baio told cops he asked her to quiet down because kids were present, but Mack was undeterred, asking him how he could support a man who said, “Grab ’em by the pussy.” Baio claims she repeatedly screamed, “Grab ’em by the pussy.”
Baio asked Nancy to stop, but he claims she kept repeating the comment because she felt everyone needed to hear it, cause Trump used it. Baio told cops at that point Mack attacked him, grabbing him under his arms and then shaking and pushing him.
Sources close to Mack say she was merely trying to show Baio how Trump hugs women and denies any intentional physical aggression.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Dept. is investigating the incident and Mack is listed as a battery suspect.
OK, I thought this was a fake news item, because of course a manly pump truppet would spray his manliness around a room and liberals would quake in fear (because that’s what truppets expect to happen).
But this comes from TMZ, which, we all know can be a sleazy gossip site, but it does cover Hollywood craziness better than any other media outlet in the world. And if you go to Baio’s Twitter account, you see his wife has verified the incident.
What Mrs. Baio doesn’t realize is that these days, everything is sane.
According to this, the population of the world in the 11th century was less than the current population of the United States.
A comprehensive chart from Information Is Beautiful that links illness to ethnicity and gender:
That’s what Donald Trump meant right? That Little Marco Rubio (wouldn’t that be Marcolito?) had implied that because Trump had small hands, something else on him was small, which obviously must be a reference to his brain?
Small side note: I remember watching “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” years ago (because I was in my 30s and extremely immature), and Cowboy Curtis made a similar observation about body parts.
OK, let’s get past the fact that Lawrence Fishburn is Cowboy Curtis, because this is long before Morpheus and “The Matrix.” But as I parse this, I guess the small hands/small mind construct is too abstract. By the rules of “Pee-wee’s Playhouse,” Marcolito’s reference to Trump’s small hands meant that Trump also had small gloves.
Because if it meant anything other than that, this Trump dig, after Mitt Romney blasted him a couple of days ago, could mean something to horrible to imagine:
Trump: “Mitt, drop to your knees. You know I don’t have small hands.”
After all, what else could that mean?
Is this really what happens when strangers meet?
