Gateway Pundit, the far-right fake news website founded and run by a gay man, Jim Hoft, has walked back accusations made against special counsel Robert Mueller after the FBI opened an investigation of those accusations. Hoft is frequently called “the dumbest man on the internet” for his wild conspiracy theories and constant mistakes.
Yesterday, the website ran a post under this headline: “**EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS** : Special Counsel and Former FBI Director Robert Mueller Accused of Rape By ‘Very Credible Witness ‘ —MUCH MORE TO COME #BelieveAllWomen.”
If you’re not with Azealia Banks 100%, you may as well be against her.
And hey, that’s her prerogative.
She doesn’t make it easy to back her all the time — we’ve covered her many beefs time and time again.
Now Australian pop star Troye Sivan finds himself fresh at the center of her displeasure yet again, after giving a wishy-washy answer to Andy Cohen about what he’d say to her if the two happened to be riding an elevator together.
To back it up, Sivan was asked in January if there are any rappers he’d be interested in working with.
“I mean, I was a huge Azealia Banks fan. That all just kind of like went south a little bit. It’s just one of those annoying things where you just want to support [her] so bad, and it just doesn’t work out like that.”
Carl Pacheco says he was just hoping to have a good time when he showed up to Kathy Griffin’s recent show in Houston in a bright red “Make American Great Again” hat, a t-shirt with pictures of Trump’s face on it, and carrying a knife.
Richard Nunez and his wife, Michele, also attended the show. Afterwards, they got into a heated altercation with Pacheco in the parking lot, OutSmart reports.
“We were one of the last few to exit the hall,” Richard Nunez explains, “and made a comment to ourselves like ‘Whaaat is he wearing?’ and ‘Is that for real?’ and he responded with a comment similar to ‘Do you want a political debate?’”
“As my wife entered the vehicle, she closed the passenger door and rolled down her window,” Nunez continued. “She made a derogatory statement to the Trump supporter and he made another derogatory statement right back.”
In a video that was uploaded (and since deleted) from YouTube, Michele Nunez can be heard saying, “Hey, asshole, f*ck Trump!” To which Pacheco responds, “F*ck you, f*cking c*nt!”
Since a group of parents declared it was “hunting season” on transgender people in response to news that a 12-year-old trans girl used the women’s bathroom at her school in Achille, Okla., the school shuttered its doors over the violent threats and her supporters held a silent demonstration. Now Frontier Airlines has suspended a pilot who allegedly threatened the young girl known only as Maddie, according to Oklahoma TV station KOCO.
The pilot was accused, along with several other adults, of threatening to do harm to Maddie simply for using the women’s restroom once when she couldn’t access the faculty bathroom, as she was told to do.
While the airline would not name the pilot involved with the incident, it released a statement confirming the pilot was suspended August 13 and condemning his actions.
This past March, Florida became the first state to create a private school voucher program just for bullied students.
The Hope Scholarship Program gives students who report being bullied $6,700 towards tuition at a private school, or $750 for transportation to another public school.
Anti-bullying activists in Florida opposed the bill, pointing out that bullying occurs in private schools at about the same rate as it does in public schools, that bullies will just pick new targets if their victims leave, and that private schools aren’t closely regulated when it comes to bullying so students will find they have few tools to remedy a situation at a private school.
A Massachusetts college president is apologizing after campus police were called to investigate a black student quietly eating her lunch in a common room.
Smith College President Kathleen McCartney says in a letter Thursday the college is hiring a "third-party investigator" to review the incident and that every Smith staff member will undergo mandatory anti-bias training.
Pop quiz, hotshot. There’s a guy eating a burrito on a BART train in San Francisco. A sign on the opposite wall says that eating and drinking is prohibited, but he’s still chowing down on his foil-wrapped lunch. What do you do? What do you do?
For most of us, the answer is… nothing. At most, we might roll our eyes in his general direction, start making a mental list of the burrito restaurants between the station and our eventual destinations, or even type and eventually delete a not particularly good tweet about it.
But then there’s this guy, who decides to do the public transport-equivalent of a citizen’s arrest. A video posted to the r/BayArea subreddit on Sunday shows a middle-aged white man—one who’s dressed like Uncle Joey Gladstone’s laundry hamper—berating a burrito-eater before calling the police.
The worst qualities of Los Angeles — endless traffic and shameless self-promotion — collided in exasperating fashion Wednesday on the 110 Freeway in downtown.
It happened about 8 a.m. when a husky, shirtless man in underwear scaled an exit sign near 3rd Street, unfurled several banners and began vaping, dancing and shouting through a bullhorn as thousands of motorists looked on in various states of amusement, anger and resignation.
