During this feisty presser yesterday, CNN hack Jim Acosta put his hand on a young staffer’s arm to try and stop her from doing her job. See the video here.
Sarah Sanders announced last night that Acosta has been banned from the White House until further notice. From her tweets:
“We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern. This conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter’s colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question.”
Expect Acosta to be on a massive, whiny rant for the next few days (heck more like the rest of President Trump’s presidency).

From Fox News: Bill Clinton spokesperson-turned ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos has been called out for hypocrisy after a combative interview with press secretary Sarah Sanders on Tuesday, when the “Good Morning America” star accused President Trump of always siding with men when it comes to sexual misconduct claims.
“It is absolutely amazing that Stephanopoulos has the gall to say it seems like President Trump is always siding with the men when it comes to accusations of sexual impropriety and sexual assault given his work in the Clinton administration,” conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News.
The interview started off with a series of questions about Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein before the conversation shifted to the ongoing sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“The president consistently, every single time, takes the side of the man,” Stephanopoulos said.
Sanders fired back, “It’s interesting that you say that. It’s a lot of Democrats that like to ignore Keith Ellison and Cory Booker. They love to fight and champion women until they disagree with them.”
Stephanopoulos reminded Sanders that Al Franken lost his job over inappropriate sexual behavior.
“A number of other Democrats should have the same type of scrutiny,” Sanders said, before Stephanopoulos interrupted, “Every single time, the president has taken the side of the man against women accusers.”
Sanders said that Trump knows Brett Kavanaugh and has heard his story, explaining that there hasn’t been a “shred of evidence” to back up claims made against the Supreme Court nominee — but the “GMA” star quickly changed the subject.
“Maybe ABC should have found someone with a little more credibility around this issue to ask these questions,” Barron said. “Factually, Stephanopoulos is also flat wrong. President Trump has been a high-profile defender of women like Juanita Broaddrick who were victimized by President Clinton and demonized by the main stream media.”
Some of these celebrities who have butt hurt about Bannon are people who have a platform to trash others who aren’t of the same political persuasion:
Jim Carrey: Uses his “art” to trash Sarah Huckabee Sander’s looks and religion
Judd Apatow: Used profanity in a stand-up gig to trash Melania and Barron Trump
Patton Oswalt: Retweeted about the “long list of targets” that terrorists have when it comes to then- President-elect Donald Trump’s worldwide holdings. “Trump has properties all over the world. Terrorists will have a long list of targets that are literally owned by POTUS and bear his name,” a Twitter use wrote. Oswalt responded by retweeting the tweet and adding, “Holy f–k. Come ‘n’ get it, terrorists!”
More hypocrisy and intolerance from “the tolerant” left.
From Hollywood Reporter: After news that Steve Bannon will be a featured speaker at the upcoming New Yorker Festival drew sharp criticism from numerous bold-faced names, the festival has dropped Bannon as a speaker.
The news came after several famous faces, including Judd Apatow, Jim Carrey, Patton Oswalt and John Mulaney, all tweeted that they were canceling their scheduled appearances at the event.
The New Yorker tweeted late Monday that Bannon had been dropped from the lineup and that it was New Yorker editor David Remnick’s decision.
New Yorker editor David Remnick put out a statement Monday that he had decided to drop Bannon from the speaker lineup.
“I don’t want well-meaning readers and staff members to think that I’ve ignored their concerns,” he said. “I’ve thought this through and talked to colleagues — and I’ve re-considered. I’ve changed my mind. There is a better way to do this. Our writers have interviewed Steve Bannon for The New Yorker before, and if the opportunity presents itself I’ll interview him in a more traditionally journalistic setting as we first discussed, and not on stage.”
He also explained his rationale for originally including Bannon on the lineup.
“The main argument for not engaging someone like Bannon is that we are giving him a platform and that he will use it, unfiltered, to propel further the ‘ideas’ of white nationalism, racism, anti-Semitism and illiberalism,” he said. “But to interview Bannon is not to endorse him. By conducting an interview with one of Trumpism’s leading creators and organizers, we are hardly pulling him out of obscurity. Ahead of the mid-term elections and with 2020 in sight, we’d be taking the opportunity to question someone who helped assemble Trumpism.”
Organizers announced the lineup early Monday of speakers including Apatow, Mulaney, John Krasinski, Jack Antonoff, Oswalt, Christine Baranski, Zadie Smith, Carrey, Jimmy Fallon and Maggie Gyllenhaal.
But the speaker drawing the most attention on social media is Bannon, the controversial former White House chief strategist who served as executive chairman of the right-leaning Breitbart News before joining Donald Trump’s campaign as chief executive in August 2016. He exited his White House position a year later.
Bannon was set to take part in a talk with Remnick titled “The Ideology of Trumpism” on Oct. 5, the first day of the three-day New Yorker Festival.
The news was met with criticism on social media from many famous faces, including Hollywood A-listers like Apatow and Ava DuVernay and the New Yorker’s own staff.
For his part, Remnick earlier told the New York Times: “I have every intention of asking him difficult questions and engaging in a serious and even combative conversation. The audience itself, by its presence, puts a certain pressure on a conversation that an interview alone doesn’t do. You can’t jump on and off the record.”
Still, TV and movie producer Aditya Sood noted that Bannon was previously featured on the festival’s main page but had since been removed.
Later Monday, Oswalt, Apatow, Carrey and Mulaney tweeted separately that they were going to pull out of their planned appearances.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House press secretary and daughter of former Arkansas governor Republican Mike Huckabee, was thrown out of a Virginia restaurant Friday night (June 23) in an incident that sparked a social media storm. The reason? Sanders works for President Donald Trump.
An Associated Press report, first picked up by the Christian Broadcasting Network, and subsequently by other media, said Sanders was ordered out of The Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, by the owner Stephanie Wilkinson, even as the chef was cooking Sanders’ dinner. Sanders said the event said far more about the owner of the restaurant than it did about her.
In a tweet from her official account, Sanders said, “I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.” The tweet generated more than 22,000 replies in about an hour. The ensuing furor pitted both supporters and detractors of Sanders. Her father, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, even joined the conversation. “Bigotry.” He tweeted. “On the menu at Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington VA. Or you can ask for the ‘Hate Plate.’ And appetizers are ‘small plates for small minds.”’
The incident mirrors an earlier incident in the week when Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen cut short a working dinner in a Mexican restaurant after protesters shouted, “Shame!” until she left.
In the ensuing social media dialogues, people from all across the country began to take sides. Some wanted to organize protests outside Red Hen restaurant, while others championed owner Wilkinson as a hero.
On Yelp, a Los Angeles-based restaurant reviewer chimed in, “Don’t eat here if you’re a Republican, wearing a MAGA hat, or are a patriot.”
Other Yelp commenters, however, supported the restaurant owner’s action. A responder from Commerce City, Colorado wrote, “Bonus: this place is run by management who stuck up for their beliefs and who are true Americans. THANK YOU!!!!”
Red Hen was trending toward the top of Twitter — 75,000 mentions within a couple hours of the first news stories.
In an interview with the Washington Post, Wilkinson explained her reasons for why she asked Sanders and her companions to leave.
“Several Red Hen employees were gay,” she said. “They knew Sanders had defended Trump’s desire to bar transgender people from the military. This month, they had all watched her evade questions and defend a Trump policy that caused migrant children to be separated from their parents.” Wilkinson said that the Sanders party already had been seated and their orders taken when she was informed by telephone who they were. It took her several minutes to drive from her home to the restaurant. She conferred with her employees.
“Tell me what you want me to do. I can ask her to leave,” Wilkinson told her staff. “They said yes.” Wilkerson then walked up to Sanders’ chair.
“I’m the owner,” she said. “I’d like you to come out to the patio with me for a word.”
She told Sanders about her feelings vis-sà-vis the president and recent events.
“I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation. I’d like to ask you to leave.”
She said that Sanders’ response was immediate: “That’s fine. I’ll go.”
As of Saturday afternoon, media personnel from broadcast stations and newspapers were camping out on the street next to the Red Hen. Wilkinson, however, remained steadfast in her belief that she was justified in throwing out the White House press secretary because she works for President Trump. She told the Washington Post, “Whatever happens, we will soldier on. Absolutely, yes, I would have done the same thing again.”
It must be noted that what the jackals of the Mainstream Media call “separation of families” is actually the Trump administration enacting a measure that flowed from the Clinton-era Flores vs. Reno Supreme Court decision allowing unaccompanied illegal border-crossing minors be held “in the least restrictive setting appropriate to the minor’s age and special needs.”
Below is a pic of Red Hen owner and her partner, Duncan Richter, wearing pink pussy hats (h/t FOTM‘s MCA).
According to TruthFinder, Wilkinson and Richter own and co-habit a home in Lexington, VA:
Stephanie Wilkinson, 55, has a Ph.D. in European and American Religious History from the University of Virginia. Her LinkedIn profile here.
Duncan Richter, 51, is a philosophy professor at Virginia Military Institute in Roanoke, VA. His LinkedIn profile here.
So much for higher education . . . .
Their lofty degrees evidently taught them nothing about classical or original liberalism — the political ideology that believes in the primacy of individual liberty; that while government is necessary to protect individuals from being harmed by others, government itself can pose a threat to liberty; and that no one or group has a monopoly on truth, and so we must tolerate our differences of opinion in the market place of ideas.
On behalf of my hometown of Lexington, I want to apologize for the rudeness of one liberal New York transplant (who also happens to be Meryl Streep’s cousin). We hope you will come back and enjoy our area’s true southern hospitality.

I recommend a hard pass of any woman that might enjoy an “urinary Bermuda triangle.”
From Fox News: Chelsea Handler is known for her inflammatory and often controversial tweets and her latest post did not disappoint. “In my effort to achieve some level of bipartisanship, my goal this year was to sleep with a Republican— voluntarily,” Handler tweeted on Tuesday. “It’s going to be tricky.”
The comedian has been focusing on political advocacy since her Netflix series “Chelsea” was cancelled last year.
She has made headlines lately for a series of offensive tweets including one about Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham. “Holy, f–k f–k. I just [saw] the video of trumps bipartisan ‘meeting’ yesterday,” Handler tweeted on Jan.10.
“Hey, @LindseyGrahamSC what kind of d–k sucking video do they have on you for you 2 be acting like this? Wouldn’t coming out be more honorable?”
In September 2017, Handler went after first lady Melania Trump on Twitter.“Melania to host a discussion on opioid abuse. She says unless you have to have sex with Donald Trump, you have no excuse to be on drugs,” Handler tweeted on Sept. 29, 2017.
This morning, our DCG postedabout unfunny comedienne and TV host Chelsea Handler, 42, calling White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, 35, a “whore” because of her makeup.
On her Netflix show “Chelsea” on December 1, 2017, Handler, consumed with hatred for President Trump, said this about his press secretary, Sanders:
“That harlot that they are dressing up and trolloping out every day. I mean one day she has no makeup on at all. The next, she’s got six-foot-long eyelashes, cleavage and summer whore lipstick all over her face.”
I did a search on DuckDuckGo for images of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, but I found no pic of her with “six-foot-long eyelashes”, “cleavage” and “summer whore lipstick” (whatever that means). See for yourself, here.
The lowest-cut top and brightest lipstick Sanders had worn is in this pic (below), for which no one in their right mind would call her a “whore”.
As usual, the Left are projecting.
The dictionary defines “whore” as “prostitute”; “a woman who has many casual sexual encounters or relationships”.
By that definition and by her own admission, Chelsea Handler is a whore.She even wrote about her many casual sexual encounters in a book titled, My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands. Here’s the book’s description on Amazon:
The author shares a collection of true-life stories about her romps through the bedrooms of a variety of suitors, documenting her brief encounters with a Vegas stripper, a well-endowed little person, and a cruise ship performer.
Not only does Chelsea Handler have many casual sexual encounters, she is “happy” to be urinated on.
On October 15, 2014, 39-year-old Handler went on the Conan O’Brien talk show to inform America that “her buddy,” the actor Jason Biggs of American Pie, urinated on her face.
She said she and Biggs were on a boat — “I got off the boat, and there’s a little below deck. So I jumped off of it and the tide was very strong so I was holding onto it because we were getting in another boat to go to the beach.” She looked up and suddenly “Jason’s penis was there and he was urinating on my face.”
“I thought it was so funny that somebody would pee on someone’s face, that I was laughing so hard I couldn’t swim away. I was trapped. I was in a urinary Bermuda Triangle. Listen, I can take one for the team. If somebody needs to get urinated on, I am happy to do that. I don’t care about urine. Who gives a s—? Sorry, who cares? I was in the ocean! Do you know how many things are living in the ocean? It’s like a human toilet. I can deal with it, I don’t have a problem with urine. There are things that are way more disgusting than that. To me it’s funny that somebody can be that rude to another person. That made me really happy.“
