Cohen claims Trump knew in advance of 2016 Trump Tower meeting
“Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, claims that then-candidate Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in which Russians were expected to offer his campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton, sources with knowledge tell CNN. Cohen is willing to make that assertion to special counsel Robert Mueller, the sources said. Cohen’s claim would contradict repeated denials by Trump, Donald Trump Jr., their lawyers and other administration officials who have said that the President knew nothing about the Trump Tower meeting until he was approached about it by The New York Times in July 2017. Cohen alleges that he was present, along with several others, when Trump was informed of the Russians’ offer by Trump Jr. By Cohen’s account, Trump approved going ahead with the meeting with the Russians, according to sources.”
Cohen is playing a dangerous game. He is showing both Trump and Mueller that he knows where all the bodies are buried. He hopes he can achieve something with these leaks – presumably either a pardon or a promise of reduced sentencing for full co-operation with the investigation.
Our long national nightmare is over. There will be another reboot of Charlie’s Angels
A naked Anna Paquin gives it all up for Vampire Bill
Anna Paquin’s nudity in True Blood earned her plenty of recognition in our annual polls. Only four actresses in history have made the list in three different years for the same role: Paquin, Mary-Louise Parker, Emilia Clarke and Emmy Rossum. Paquin and Rossum have won the vote once apiece, while Parker finished in the top five twice, but the ol’ Khaleesi has never finished higher than 9th (surprisingly).
Paquin finished at #1 in the Top Nude Scenes of 2008
She finished at #2 in the Top Nude Scenes of 2009
She finished at #13 in the Top Nude Scenes of 2010
I don’t know how, but Zooey Deschanel somehow avoided a nip-slip in this outfit
Maybe she doesn’t have nipples.
When it comes to the Russia probe, all roads lead to Rohrabacher
He actually said this:
“I’m not Putin’s best friend.”
Sure, maybe not BEST.
Les Actrices Françaises Nues à l’Ecran has been updated for the week ending July 27
This week (thumbnails are clickable):
Mark Zuckerberg just lost more than $15 billion in one day
In fact, in about an hour!
Zuckerberg’s personal one-hour loss was equivalent to the entire value of United Airlines, or the entire GDP of the country of Iceland.
Facebook’s market value dropped more than $100 billion (19% of its value) in a bearish day of trading. That is the largest drop in history for a single stock in a single day.
The left is flush with outrage over a fake interview.
Allie Beth Stuckey did a fake “interview” with progressive darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. (Seen below)
It is precisely the same technique that Seth Meyers uses in substituting fake questions to Sarah Sanders’ answers, or that Stephen Colbert uses in placing himself and his fake questions into Trump interviews. Frankly, it’s never very funny because none of the three fake interviewers has the chutzpah to make the interviews really edgy. Meyers and Colbert are better at it because they are professional humorists, but the fact that Stuckey isn’t really very funny is no reason for liberal Twitter to go nuts. So the tables have been turned. Big deal. Stuckey’s vid is just a less funny version of the same old time-worn schtick.
Omarosa has finished her book about the Trump White House
It is called “Unhinged.” It’s not clear whether this adjective is meant to apply to her, to Trump, to the White House environment, or all of the above.
Her publisher wrote: “Omarosa is finally ready to share her side of the story in this explosive, jaw-dropping account.”
OK, I know they are trying to sell books, but can you imagine anything about Donald Trump that would be “jaw-dropping”? I’m trying to make a mental run-through of the worst things anyone can say about another person, and I’m having a difficult time coming up with anything that would surprise me enough to be jaw-dropping. What secret could she possibly have to spill? He’s a KKK grand dragon? He admits he is the antichrist? His hobby is torturing golden retriever puppies? He is a Kenyan Muslim? He had a gay affair with Putin? He was a member of Manson’s family and personally killed Sharon Tate? He thinks he’s the reincarnation of Hitler? (Hey, he was conceived six months after Hitler’s suicide.) If the secrets fall short of that level, my jaw will remain firmly in place.
Maybe he and Omarosa did anal, with Melania nursing Barron in the next room.
Wait. Never mind. That last one wouldn’t surprise me at all.
Bella Thorne goes to the beach – nip-slips, cheek-peeks
You know, the things that make life worthwhile.
