Roy Moore"s Election Eve Rally Featured An Anecdote About A Child Brothel Visit & Confirmation That One Of His Lawyers "Is A Jew"

Roy Moore's last campaign event was certainly his weirdest. As you surely know, the Alabama senatorial candidate has been riddled with controversy as he's been accused of pursuing women back when they were minors. Despite previously admitting to being familiar with at least two of the accusers, the GOP candidate/alleged child molester has since decided to [...] Roy Moore's last campaign event was certainly his weirdest. As you surely know, the Alabama senatorial candidate has been riddled with controversy as he's been accused of pursuing women back when they were minors. Despite previously admitting to being familiar with at least two of the accusers, the GOP candidate/alleged child molester has since decided to follow in Donald Trump's footsteps and deny, well, everything. Related: 12-Year-Old Girl Interviewed Alleged Pedophile Roy Moore In fact, during Monday night's rally, the 70-year-old attempted to convince the public that the allegations against him were just "fake news." The former state judge told the crowd: "I want you to understand this. The Washington Post put out this terrible, disgusting article, saying I had done something. I want you to understand something. They said these women … had not come forward for nearly 40 years, but they waited until 30 days before this general election to come forward." Yeah, just to clarify, these women came forward when they realized a predator may actually become a senator. Smh. Roy's wife Kayla attacked some "fake news" stories as well, as she went after those who accused her husband of being racist and anti-Semitic. Specifically, Mrs. Moore noted that Roy has hired many black employees and has Jewish friends. She explained: "Fake news will tell you that we don't care for Jews. One of our attorneys is a Jew. We have very close friends that are Jewish." How is this real life?? Just because you know someone who is black and/or Jewish, that doesn't immediately prove you're not racist. Sadly, this wasn't even the most bizarre part of the evening. That moment came when Roy's Vietnam War buddy Bill Staehle got up to tell an anecdote about the time he and Moore ended up in child brothel. Again, WHAT????? Apparently, at some point during the war, the twosome were lured to a "private club" by an officer who was celebrating the last night of his tour. Rather than partaking in the unsavory activities, Bill claims Roy was horrified by the misconduct occurring in the establishment. Staehle shared: "We got in his Jeep, he drove, he knew where he was going. And he took us to this place, which turned out to be a brothel. We walked inside, I can tell you what I saw, but I don't want to. It was clear what kind of place it was, and Roy turned to me, in less time than it took for someone to come up to us... And there were certainly pretty girls. And they were girls, and they were young. Some were probably very young, I don't know. I don't remember that, I wasn't there long enough. Roy said to me, ‘We shouldn't be here. I'm leaving.' Or words to that affect, I think those were his exact words." The two soldiers left the whore house and returned to their base camp. The veteran concluded: "And that was Roy. That was Roy. Honorable. disciplined, morally straight and highly principled." Oh cool, Roy abstained from taking advantage of young girls this one time. We wonder what his half a dozen accusers would have to say in response to Bill's inneresting story. In addition to Staehle, Trump lackey Steve Bannon spoke at the election eve rally, who claimed that liberals and the press wanted to "shut up President Trump and Judge Moore" as well as their supporters. Ugh. Roy had one last message for his naysayers when he asked: "If you don't believe in my character, don't vote for me." Fingers crossed they don't. [Image via NBC News/YouTube.].....»»

On Thursday, Amazon Studios programming chief Roy Price has been suspended following allegations he told The Man in the High Castle executive producer Isa Hackett, "You will love my dick," at Comic-Con in 2015. Related: Harvey Weinstein May Lose His Honorary Degree According to The Information, the exec allegedly made the remark inside of a cab, where Hackett told him she was not interested, and is married with children. Before news of Price's suspension broke, Isa told The Hollywood Reporter why she came forward: "Having power and influence is such a huge responsibility. As somebody with some power, I feel it is imperative for me to speak out. I want to call out [Price's] behavior and also hold myself to a certain standard. It's difficult because of the fact that I have two shows and I love those shows and I value my experience at Amazon. But this incident has been looming and it's difficult to shake it. I didn't want the details to come out previously because I didn't want to distract or deflate the energies of all the people who are so invested in these shows, and all of that positivity. You don't want to bring this into it. It feels demoralizing." As we reported, that same day, Rose McGowan said she told the head of Amazon Studios that Harvey Weinstein "raped" her. Reportedly, Price's leave of absence is effective immediately. [Image via Ivan Nikolov/FayesVision/WENN.].....»»

Michael Douglas Preemptively Denies Masturbation Harassment Claim from 80’s

The harassment claims […] The post Michael Douglas Preemptively Denies Masturbation Harassment Claim from 80’s appeared first on wwtdd. Michael Douglas got wind that the Hollywood Reporter was about to run with a story that a woman who worked for Douglas in the early 80’s was accusing him of workplace harassment. The outlet had reached out to him for comment, as well as contacting a number of his long time associates. The harassment claims included the horrible crimes of using profanity while talking to buddies in the office, not speaking well of  her to industry friends after he fired her, and the only actual real charge, masturbating in front of her. That old clam. Douglas contacted the entertainment trade magazine, Deadline, to produce an interview discussing his counter claim before the claims could even hit the newsstand in the Hollywood Reporter. Hard to say if this will be the new strategy in the #MeToo/#TimesUp witch hunt era, but it’s at least a strategy. And Douglas is no dummy. He’s been in the business since birth. The full Deadline interview is rather awkward, in that Douglas is recounting what the Hollywood Report told him was their story, while similarly providing his defense of the claims in that story. Regardless, he knew well to hit home on the denial of the tugging bit, the one real accusation: Finally, masturbating in front of her? I don’t know where to begin. This is a complete lie, fabrication, no truth to it whatsoever. Michael Douglas has banged a ton of tail in this town. He was the original ginned up sex addiction rehab patient after plowing through a couple wives and ladies on the side. He’s been accusation free when it comes to anything sinister. You have to wonder about a woman, who was fired by him, in 1983, now coming out with a series of charges which are largely puttering, save for a last of the list trendy masturbated-in-front-of-me charge. Doesn’t mean it didn’t happen, it only means she’s delivering the news in one of the least believable frameworks possible. With the nature of recent revelations about a bunch of dudes who maybe did rape or semen bomb women long ago but only now are being called to task, you’d be wise not to hundred percent call a claim against a powerful dude in Hollywood out and out bogus. It likely is, but who knew Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer were naked so much in their offices? The Hollywood Reporter will still run with the story, even if Douglas deflate-gated much of their bang. And the people who want to believe the 80’s charges by an ex-employee will do so because it fits their view of the universe. The smart strategy for defending yourself in this 17th century Salem environment has yet to be discovered, but at least Douglas is trying something.
