Hypocrite Lady Gaga: Supporter of Bill and Hillary Clinton is upset by Kavanaugh hearings

Lady Gaga and her Clinton buddies: #BelieveWomen, but only of a certain political persuasion.

Lady Gaga says she was raped at 19 and as a result, suffers from PTSD. In the past, she teamed up with Joe Biden to help sexual assault survivors.

Wonder if this starlet has ever reached out to the sexual assault survivor Juanita Broaddrick? I’m going with NO. What a Hollyweird hypocrite.

From Hollywood Reporter: Lady Gaga stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday night to discuss all things A Star Is Born, as well as share her thoughts on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

When asked if she was willing to talk politics, Gaga said “bring it on.” Of Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault and misconduct by multiple women including Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Gaga, who has been open in the past about her own sexual assault, said the ongoing “debate of Kavanaugh versus Dr. Ford is one of the most upsetting things I have ever witnessed.”

“But I will tell you something,” she continued. “Should we trust that [Dr. Ford] remembered the assault? Yes. And I’ll tell you exactly why. She’s a psychologist, she’s no dummy. And when someone experiences trauma, the brain changes. It takes the trauma and puts it in a box so that we can survive the pain.” A vote to confirm the highly controversial Trump pick to the Supreme Court is set to be held Saturday. Kavanaugh has denied all the claims against him.

Gaga added that she believes Ford was probably “triggered” when she realized Kavanaugh would be nominated and she decided to “protect this country.”

(At this point, the article doesn’t expand on any of her claims about Kavanaugh or Ford, it merely moves on to her latest movie. Because when you’ve got a movie to promote #believewomen can take a back seat.)

The pop star-turned-actress was also on hand to promote her new film A Star Is Born, which she stars in with director and writer Bradley Cooper. The film is the fourth iteration of the classic tale of a young up-and-coming star who falls in love with an older, established one whose career is fading as hers takes off. The project is Cooper’s directorial debut and Gaga’s big screen acting debut, although she previously won a Golden Globe for her role on American Horror Story: Hotel.

Of how she got the part, she said that she sang at a charity event the night before she met with Cooper. After he heard her sing “La Vie en Rose,” he wanted to meet with her, and they had an immediate connection. Of first meeting her future director and co-star, Gaga said, “There’s a lot of fake people in Hollywood but Bradley is not one of them.”

And although Gaga is a Grammy-winning artist, she’s not the only one who has a natural singing ability. She told Colbert that she was blown away by Cooper’s singing voice when she first heard it. “That man, he sings from his gut, from his soul and you can be technically perfect, but with no ability to tell a story, and he tells a story when he sings,” she said, adding, “I was drawn to his passion.”

Her character Ally may be a rising pop star, but Gaga said the similarities between her and her character end there. “My character Ally is very different than I was. I knew I had something to say and I wanted to say it… but she’s not that way,” she said, explaining that, “she’s in her 30s and she’s given up. She’s been told she’s not beautiful enough to make it and truthfully she’s insecure.”

Trump supporter Tim Allen beats TDS-infected Candice Bergen in TV show ratings

Suck it, Murphy Brown.

From USA Today: After the first week of the television season, Tim Allen has bragging rights over Candice Bergen.

The return of Allen’s sitcom Last Man Standingreached 8.1 million viewers on Fox last Friday night. That was more than the 7.5 million people who tuned into the revival of Bergen’s “Murphy Brown on CBS the night before.

CBS heavily promoted the return of “Murphy Brown” after two decades, and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had a cameo in the first episode.

Last Man Standing” had been gone just a year, canceled by ABC in a decision that Allen said left him “stunned and blindsided.” But Fox brought it back, and on its first week it was the network’s most popular entertainment show, particularly impressive considering Friday is one of the least-watched nights on television.

ABC said its decision was strictly business after it decided against airing comedies on Friday, but there were political overtones. Allen supports President Donald Trump and his lead character, Mike Baxter, has been described as Archie Bunker with a college education. Some conservatives said the cancellation was proof that they weren’t valued as customers in liberal Hollywood.

The victory over “Murphy Brown” was “a very big upset,” said Marc Berman, a veteran television analyst who runs the Programming Insider.

Murphy Brown” had the misfortune of competing against real-life politics, since the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh aired the day of its premiere, giving big boosts that evening to Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who together reached nearly 10 million viewers, Nielsen said.

How original: "Murphy Brown" gets a re-boot at CBS

candice bergen
As soon as I saw this headline I KNEW the reason why this was happening: President Trump.
Remember this story I did about Candice Bergen last year and her wearing a “free Melania” shirt? Like most in Hollyweird, she has a serious case of TDS.
Another show I won’t be watching.
From NY Post: Another beloved comedy series is coming back for a new installment on its original network. CBS has given a 13-episode series order to “Murphy Brown,” a revival of the 1988 sitcom with its creator Diane English and star Candice Bergen both set to return. Warner Bros. TV, which was behind the original series, is the sole studio.
Bergen will reprise her role as the famous investigative journalist and TV anchor at the FYI network, as “Murphy Brown” returns to a world of cable news, social media, fake news and a very different political and cultural climate.
The multi-camera revival will come on the 30th anniversary of the original series, which aired on CBS for 10 seasons, from 1988-1998, with English leaving after Season 4. The show was known for its political satire and for reflecting current events, regularly weaving in real-life political headlines. It was famously referenced by Vice President Dan Quayle in a speech during the 1992 presidential campaign.
In 2012, English said that she was having conversations with CBS about bringing “Murphy Brown” back for a few episodes during the election year. Chatter about a “Murphy Brown” revival restarted a year ago, around the time of Donald Trump’s inauguration, with rumors about English mulling an updated version to take on the new political climate and holding informal meetings with Bergen and some of the show’s former writers to brainstorm ideas. At that time, the revival was just a notion. It was a slow process, but the project finally came together, with deals closing in early January.

Sexgate: CBS & PBS fired Charlie Rose after 8 women accused him of sexual misconduct, incl. walking around naked

I knew it!
Years ago, when I first saw Charlie Rose on PBS, before he became CBS This Morning‘s anchor, I took an instant visceral dislike of him, not because of his political ideology (of which I knew little), but because I found his faux sincerity creepy.

Yesterday, The Washington Post reports that eight women told the newspaper that Charlie Rose had made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, and groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas.
The women, who ranged in age from 21 to 27 at the time of Rose’s lewd behaviors, were either employees or aspired to work for Rose at PBS’s Charlie Rose show. The incidents took place from the late 1990s to as recently as 2011. Rose is 75, which means he was 69 years old in 2011.
According to the Washington Post, “rumors about Rose’s behavior have circulated for years.
Jeremy Derard reports for Deadline (via MSN), Nov. 20, 2017:

There are striking commonalities in the accounts of the women, each of whom described their interactions with Rose in multiple interviews with The Post. For all of the women, reporters interviewed friends, colleagues or family members who said the women had confided in them about aspects of the incidents. Three of the eight spoke on the record.”

Below is Rose’s statement in response to the women’s accusations:

“In my 45 years in journalism, I have prided myself on being an advocate for the careers of the women with whom I have worked. Nevertheless, in the past few days, claims have been made about my behavior toward some former female colleagues.
It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.
I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will too. All of us, including me, are coming to a newer and deeper recognition of the pain caused by conduct in the past, and have come to a profound new respect for women and their lives.”

Update:

CBS News has fired Charlie Rose; PBS also parted ways with Rose shortly after the CBS decision.
Today, Nov. 21, CBS News executives sent staffers an email memo, which was obtained by Fox News. The memo says:

“A short time ago we terminated Charlie Rose’s employment with CBS News, effective immediately.
This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior said to have revolved around his PBS program.
Despite Charlie’s important journalistic contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace — a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work. We need to be such a place….
CBS News has reported on extraordinary revelations at other media companies this year and last. Our credibility in that reporting requires credibility managing basic standards of behavior. That is why we have taken these actions….”

CBS lawyer: No sympathy for Vegas victims, "probably Republicans"

hayley geftman gold

Hayley Geftman-Gold: Evil and heartless demorat/Twitter photo

Remember folks, #LoveTrumpsHate!
From Fox News: A top lawyer for CBS said she is “not even sympathetic” to victims of the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans often are Republican,” when discussing the tragic mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas late Sunday night. 
Hayley Geftman-Gold, the network’s vice president and senior counsel, took to Facebook after a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, killing at least 58 people and sending more than 500 others to hospitals.
“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs [sic] will ever do the right thing,” Geftman-Gold wrote in a now-deleted message that was first reported and captured by The Daily Caller.
Geftman-Gold continued: “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc [sic] country music fans often are Republican gun toters [sic].”
Geftman-Gold is presumably referring to Sandy Hook, which occurred in Newtown, Connecticut back in 2012. A 20-year-old gunman, Adam Lanza, killed 20 children and six adults during the tragic event that sparked intense political debates regarding gun control.
Geftman-Gold does not work directly with the network’s news division. According to her LinkedIn bio, Geftman-Gold has worked at CBS since September 2016 and graduated from Columbia University law school in 2000.
“CBS is looking into the matter,” a company spokeswoman told Fox News.
Feel free to contact CBS here.
Wait, never mind. CBS fired her.

Suck it Hollyweird: 2017 Emmy ratings reach new low

Colbert: Setting new records for CBS


From Yahoo: Praise, wee — CBS’ broadcast of the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards delivered all-time lows.
The Stephen Colbert-hosted ceremony drew 9.6 million total viewers (others are reporting the final number was 11.4 million) and a 2.2 rating in the fast nationals, dropping a handful of eyeballs and down 12 percent in the demo from what ABC and Jimmy Kimmel woke up to a year ago. (In Nielsen finals, the 2016 kudoscast went on to post 11.3 million total viewers and a 2.8 demo rating, which at the time marked all-time lows.)
Read the rest of the story here.
Gee, I wonder why the Trump-bashing show didn’t draw in viewers?
Keep it up, Hollyweird. I look forward to the day when you are completely irrelevant.

Hollyweird is stuck on stupid: Gina Rodriguez's "Dreamers" series hopes to rid America of the term "illegal"

gina rodriguez
Why is following the law so hard for folks to understand? I hope this series bombs.
From LA Times: By all appearances, Rafael Agustin had been the all-American high school student: he was class president, prom king and an honor roll student. But there was one hitch: he was also in the country illegally.
It was a discovery Agustin learned while applying for college in 1998 — before there was a program like the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
“I was in shock,” the Ecuador-born writer-performer recalled during a recent phone interview with The Times. “I knew I was an immigrant — I remember a time when I didn’t speak English. But I didn’t know we were undocumented illegal immigrants.”
Agustin, now a U.S. citizen who received his undergraduate and post-graduate degrees from UCLA’s School of Theater, Film & Television, has channeled that experience and created a series inspired by his life about an immigrant family, tentatively titled “Illegal.” The series is in development at the CW and is expected to be an hour-long dramedy that Agustin describes as an edgy Latino version of “The Wonder Years.”
The announcement came a day after the Trump administration’s decision to dismantle DACA, which has provided hundreds of thousands of young immigrants the ability to work legally in the U.S. and a temporary reprieve from deportation.
“Illegal” is one of two immigrant-related series that “Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez has in development under an overall deal at CBS TV Studios for her I Can & I Will Productions. (The other, “Have Mercy,” is set up at CBS.)
LA Times interviewed these two and you can read the whole interview here.
The Times asked Gina, “What emotions were you feeling last Tuesday when it was announced Trump was dismantling the DACA program?”
Her response: “For me personally I was just devastated. My heart breaks for these young kids that are just trying. America just seems real brutal these days. Everything that I’ve grown up with and thought America stood for has just been destroyed by this administration time and time again. I’m just so afraid for young kids who fear not having anywhere to go. I just wish I could change it all, but I can’t.”
Hey Gina: If the kids really wanna try, have them go here.

Boycott: Upcoming Emmy's hosted by Stephen Colbert, who makes Nazi salute in criticism of Trump

stephen colbert

CBS must be so proud of this hack


Trump basher Stephen Colbert is hosting the Emmy’s this year which is scheduled for September 17 on CBS. Expect the award ceremony to be a full-on production of Trump Derangement Syndrome. I for one will not be watching this show full of elite, hypocritical narcissists.
From Daily Mail: Stephen Colbert, the host of CBS Late Show who has been one of President Donald Trump’s most vocal critics, is once again generating controversy on Friday after he made a Nazi salute in reference to Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon.
Colbert, CBS’s late night star who once made a crude remark about President Donald Trump’s relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, returned to host his show this week after a two-week hiatus.
In his opening monologue, Colbert cracked jokes about Bannon, the now-departed White House aide who returned to head alt-right news site Breitbart. Colbert’s jokes were interspersed with clips of Bannon talking to Charlie Rose of 60 Minutes in an interview.
CBS has released portions of the interview in which Bannon is heard talking about a number of issues, including Trump’s controversial reaction to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last month.
Trump was criticized for blaming ‘both sides’ after an anti-racist counter-protester was killed and 20 others were injured when a suspected neo-Nazi ploughed his car into a crowd of people on August 12.
In his 60 Minutes interview, Bannon defended Trump’s response to Charlottesville. ‘By the way, after the Charlottesville situation – that’s what I told John Kelly – I was the only guy that came out and tried to defend him,’ Bannon told 60 Minutes. ‘I was the only guy that said, “He’s talking about something that’s… taking it up to a higher level”,’ he said.
That’s when Colbert interjected.
‘Yeah, he’s definitely taking it to a higher level. I’d say his support is about up there. Right around here,’ the former Colbert Report host said as he stretched his arm out to a 45-degree angle with his fingers extended similar to how the Nazis used to salute Adolf Hitler.
‘Or over here,’ Colbert said, adjusting his arm to give another mock Nazi salute. ‘Somewhere up there.’
Colbert has drawn criticism in the past for controversial statements about Trump. On his May 1 broadcast, he lashed out at the president during his opening monologue, when he remarked that ‘the only thing [Trump’s] mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c*** holster.’
The broadcast sparked thousands of complaints to the FCC, which launched a review. The agency eventually declined to take any action against Colbert.

Parents Upset Over Tutoring Program That Excluded Whites

A Colorado school principal is apologizing after he mailed parents a letter informing them that an after-school tutoring program was for non-whites only.

Andre Pearson, the principal at Mission Viejo Elementary School in Aurora, also left a voice mail message confirming that the program excluded whites.

It’s focused for and designed for children of color,” Principal Pearson said in a voicemail to parent Nicole Cox. “If we have space for other kids who have needs, we can definitely meet those needs.”

The voicemail was obtained by CBS-4 News in Denver.

I was infuriated,” Cox told the television station. “I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups.”

Cox, who is white, said her daughter needed tutoring.

We have come so far in all these years to show everybody that everyone is equal, that everyone should be treated equally – this is a form of bullying,” she said.

Tustin Amole, the director of communications for the Cherry Creek School District, told Fox News it was simply a mistake.

The communication the principal sent out was wrong,” she said. “He made a mistake and he has apologized for that.”

Amole said the tutoring program was created last year in a partnership with parents of color. The purpose of the program was to talk about how the school could meet the needs of their children.

We have a performance plan for the entire school district and a very big piece of that is excellence in equity – narrowing our achievement gap,” she said.

Amole said white students were a part of the program last year and this year. Approximately 44 percent of the children in the district are non-white.

No one is turned away,” she said. “There is no segregation. We serve the needs of all children.”

She would not comment on whether the principal faces disciplinary action. However, she did say that parents would be receiving an apology letter and it would also be posted on the school’s website.
