Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders later said Hill's actions were a "fireable offense." Obviously people can share their opinions on Twitter. The controversy here is whether or not Jemele's tweets reflect the views of the sports network. Related: Kid Rock Asks 'Why Is Everything So Gay?' In Concert Rant!

Donald Trump VS The NFL — Everything You Need To Know!

What could the President of the United States of America possibly have to gain by fighting with the NFL?? Well, when you're talking about Donald Trump, there actually are a couple good reasons. (And by "good" we mean horrific.) Let's rewind. Related: Like John Oliver Did Last Night For Megyn Kelly — OUCH! On Friday night, Trump was holding [...] What could the President of the United States of America possibly have to gain by fighting with the NFL?? Well, when you're talking about Donald Trump, there actually are a couple good reasons. (And by "good" we mean horrific.) Let's rewind. Related: Like John Oliver Did Last Night For Megyn Kelly -- OUCH! On Friday night, Trump was holding a rally in Alabama -- yes, our sitting president who has been in office less than a year regularly holds campaign-style rallies to inflate his ego -- in which he made some inflammatory remarks about protesting football players. In short, he said NFL owners should fire the players who kneel during the National Anthem. And he said it in the crudest way: "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He's fired. He's fired!'" Yep. Our president used an expletive in a public speech attacking private citizens who are peacefully protesting. Though he didn't mention Colin Kaepernick by name, he is at the vanguard of this controversy. So his mom responded to the "son of a bitch" comment with an AMAZING quip: Guess that makes me a proud bitch! — Teresa Kaepernick (@B4IleaveU) September 23, 2017 It should be noted in that same speech he also rattled off the opinion that penalties for hitting too hard, installed to protect players from concussions, are "ruining the game." Shortly after this, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry was so offended by this (and presumably everything that came before) he decided not to attend the traditional visit by the NBA champs to the White House. In response, Trump officially, publicly disinvited him. CLICK HERE FOR MORE! Guy. Everyone knows you can't un-invite someone after they said they weren't coming! It turns you from a loser into an ANGRY loser. Even middle school student body presidents wouldn't make that mistake. Damn. Or as LeBron James put it: U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up! — LeBron James (@KingJames) September 23, 2017 Ha! But Trump had moved on from a feud with a specific player. He decided he wanted to take on the entire NFL. On Saturday, Drumpf doubled down: If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL,or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect.... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 ...our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU'RE FIRED. Find something else to do! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 If you haven't seen it, longtime sports journalist Bob Costas gave an epic response to this argument, pointing out that peaceful protest and dissent are some of the most patriotic things you can do in a free country. CLICK HERE FOR MORE After NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Trump's comments showed an "unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players," Trump responded: Roger Goodell of NFL just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country.Tell them to stand! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 On Sunday, he actually encouraged his followers to boycott watching the games: If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2017 This is clearly on very shaky ground ethically -- the POTUS directing people to boycott a private American business -- and he's already had a complaint filed against him with the Office of Government Ethics. Oh, and if you're like us and know to look for the tweet from Barack Obama's presidency that proves Trump is being a total hypocrite about this, look no further: President should not be telling the Washington Redskins to change their name-our country has far bigger problems! FOCUS on them,not nonsense — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 8, 2013 Every time. So on Sunday when it came time for football players to stand for the National Anthem, all eyes were on their reactions, which... varied. At latest count more than 200 players league-wide didn't stand for the anthem. Trump's friend Tom Brady doesn't have his back. The Pittsburg Steelers didn't show up on the field at all! CLICK HERE FOR MORE Trump was so unhappy about all this he may even have snuck a lewd gesture onto live TV. You can decide that one for yourself. Trump was undeterred. Obviously. But on Monday morning, he did tweet a clarification, as once again he didn't like being called out as a racist: The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2017 Except it DOES have to do with race. You can't say the intent of these players has nothing to do with race when they're flat-out saying it's about race. It's about injustice along racial lines, specifically when it comes to police brutality. Police keep getting away with killing unarmed black citizens. But the surge in players kneeling this Sunday was in unity AGAINST Trump's awful comments attacking players and their freedom of speech. We know because THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT IT! And they aren't alone. Many celebrities have come out in support of the protesting. CLICK HERE FOR MORE So with all of this support on the other side, for the NFL, for freedom of speech, for African Americans looking for justice, why would Trump take the position he's taking? Two reasons: 1. His Base We already know by Trump's inability to condemn the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, equating the white supremacists with those counter-protesting, that Trump is unwilling to go against his base. Let's be honest here. Trump ran on a platform of hate. He painted Mexicans as criminals as he threw his hat in the ring. He regularly fans the flames of Islamophobia. His wall, aside from being completely idiotic, is as xenophobic a policy as we've ever heard. The first time he even dipped his toe into the political world was to declare Obama wasn't really an American. So his core supporters, the ones he's courted from the beginning, are racists. And he can't lose them. They're all he has left. Besides the cowardly Republican party that let him hijack them we mean. 2. Ego Trump KNOWS so much of this is about him. He's the one who is embarrassing and demeaning our country, he's the one making us all look bad, he's the one emboldening Nazis. It's 2017, and we have a Nazi problem! Let that soak in. He's making every problem with our country worse. So as the leader of the United States, he takes it as a personal slight when players kneel during its anthem, when they don't stand for the flag. And we know how he reacts to criticism. And he's petty enough to start a war with an organization like the NFL over it. So there you go. [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Omarosa Manigualt Did NOT Leave The White House On Good Terms — Juicy Details On Her Firing HERE!

Living for this gossip coming out of our supremely dysfunctional White House — and this time, shockingly, Donald Trump isn't even really involved in the dysfunction!!

As we've been reporting this week, Omarosa Manigault resigned was most definitely fired from her job in the White House by Chief of Staff John Kelly, but that is so far from the end of the story that it's almost ridiculous. She has a LOT to tell and it looks like she may be positioning herself for a tell-all book, or something. Get your popcorn. Related: Trump Got His OWN Birthday Wrong On Absentee Ballot It all started this week when Omarosa was told that her husband no longer had clearance to attend the White House staff Christmas party, according to an exclusive report in the Daily Mail. That led directly to what sources are calling an "epic showdown" with Kelly, in which she blew up at him, swearing and yelling, and pretty much sealing her fate. A source said: "When she got word that her husband could not attend the Christmas party because his security clearance under her had been canceled already, she was outraged. She confronted General Kelly about it and that's when the explosive altercation happened between them. She was embarrassed by that and it sent her over the top." The thing is, though, that Kelly was sick of Omarosa's "abusive treatment" of other senior officials long before the blow-up this week, and he was already in the process of getting around to firing her... the Christmas party blow-up just pushed him to do it immediately on Tuesday night. Being a relatively honorable man, Kelly agreed to let Omarosa say she "resigned" and that her last day would be January 20 -- one full year of working in the White House. But Manigault and Kelly did not part on good terms; and in fact, literally no other senior official in the White House liked her, either! Oops!!! While Kelly saw Manigault as a "tyrant," with an "air of entitlement," other senior officials also had a strong distaste for Omarosa. Related: Omarosa Weds At Trump International Hotel! One source revealed: "The only reason Omarosa survived Reince Priebus, Steve Bannon and Sean Spicer is because the president protected her. They all had issues with her at one point or another, but despite their gripes about her and their desires for her to be let go, Trump always had her back." LOLz!! Of course Trump had her back -- she's a reality TV snake oil salesman just like The Donald himself! Birds of a feather flock together... well, at least in most cases they do. Speaking of Trump, Omarosa tried to go see him after Kelly laid down the hammer on her White House career, but she was prevented from going into the President' living quarters and eventually hauled off the grounds of the White House, allegedly being physically removed from the space (though Omarosa denies that this happened). More from a source on her removal (below): "This is a woman who showed up at the White House with her entire bridal party for an unplanned, unauthorized wedding day photo shoot. So, imagine her outrage when she was told that her husband could not come to the White House that evening for one of the holiday parties, she was pissed to say the least ... She became disgruntled and she tripped the alarms [trying to get to Trump] and she started throwing obscenities." Oh, Omarosa... Never change!!! Sounds like she's starting to prepare for that inevitable tell-all book coming in 3... 2... 1... [Image via WENN.].....»»

Not long after they came under fire for a controversial fantasy football sketch following the Charlottesville violence, they're facing way more heat for their latest decision.

Filmmaker C.J. Hunt was at the rally getting footage for a documentary about Confederate monuments when he captured the disturbing moment he "watched a Nazi disappear." Related: 'Sad' Donald Trump Criticizes The Removal Of ‘Beautiful' Confederate Statues! In a GQ article, Hunt shares the experience (and video) of a young man marching with Vanguard America, a small white supremacist group, one whose vague name and nondescript uniform -- white polo and khakis -- allows them to pervade college campuses undetected. They're also the same group with whom homicidal driver James Fields Jr. is affiliated. But when he was confronted by a group of counter-protesters while all alone, he quickly tore off his white shirt and said: "I'm not really white power, man. I just came here for the fun. Fuck. I'm sorry." After the police order the group to disperse, Hunt asked the guy what he was doing there if he wasn't a real white supremacist. The subject said he was "barely" part of the movement because: "It's kind of a fun idea. Just being able to say, like, hey man, white power." When the camera operator asks if he'll put the uniform back on, he says: "To be quite honest, I love to be offensive. It's fun." Ugh. Related: Former Presidents Shame Trump With Eloquent, Unequivocal Response To White Supremacists So what do YOU think, Perezcious readers? Is this a troll having a laugh at the expense of minorities? Or a white supremacist trying to escape consequences? Is there a difference??? Watch and decide or yourself (below)! Hunt was deeply shaken by the experience, which serves as a reminder that these people can easily slip off their uniforms and walk among us with impunity. He writes in his article: "Since I'm a person of color, my identity is not a uniform I can take off when I am feeling unsafe—when I'm stopped by police or when my white girlfriend and I travel through southern towns where Confederate flags billow from porches and pickup trucks. Like all minorities, I've grown used to the way that difference marks me—the burden of being ever ready for the moment my skin turns me into a target for angry white men determined to take back what they think the world owes them."

Donald Trump Uses 280 Characters To Whine About Story Revealing His INSANE Cable News, Diet Coke, & Twitter Habits

Most of the "fake news" Donald Trump has been attacking lately is factual errors in reporting on the Russia scandal and ongoing Mueller investigation. Even if those stories are quickly corrected, any mistakes serve as fuel for Drumpf's war against the press. But don't forget that the President is a very small man, and this fight comes [...] Most of the "fake news" Donald Trump has been attacking lately is factual errors in reporting on the Russia scandal and ongoing Mueller investigation. Even if those stories are quickly corrected, any mistakes serve as fuel for Drumpf's war against the press. But don't forget that the President is a very small man, and this fight comes first and foremost from a fear of people not taking him seriously. Video: Watch Trump Creeps On A Woman In Vintage Commercial Footage! After all, the more people actually learn about him, the worse he looks. That's the problem with being an awful, crooked simpleton. So it's no wonder Trump had a meltdown in response to a mind-blowing profile in The New York Times this weekend, which revealed he consistently watches 4-8 hours of TV and drinks "a dozen Diet Cokes" every day. See some of the most shocking excerpts AND Dumb Donald's response (below)! Trump The TV Addict "Before taking office, Mr. Trump told top aides to think of each presidential day as an episode in a television show in which he vanquishes rivals. People close to him estimate that Mr. Trump spends at least four hours a day, and sometimes as much as twice that, in front of a television, sometimes with the volume muted, marinating in the no-holds-barred wars of cable news and eager to fire back." Did Trump's Lawyer Really Write That Obstruction Tweet? "When three former campaign advisers were indicted or pleaded guilty this fall, Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer handling the investigation, urged the president not to respond. If he did, it would only elevate the story. Mr. Trump, however, could not help himself... By Sunday morning, with news shows consumed by Mr. Flynn's case, the president grew angry and fired off a series of tweets excoriating Mrs. Clinton and the F.B.I., tweets that several advisers told him were problematic and needed to stop, according to a person briefed on the discussion." Diet Coke Fiend "The ammunition for his Twitter war is television. No one touches the remote control except Mr. Trump and the technical support staff — at least that's the rule. During meetings, the 60-inch screen mounted in the dining room may be muted, but Mr. Trump keeps an eye on scrolling headlines. What he misses he checks out later on what he calls his "Super TiVo," a state-of-the-art system that records cable news. Watching cable, he shares thoughts with anyone in the room, even the household staff he summons via a button for lunch or for one of the dozen Diet Cokes he consumes each day." Trump's Work Day "Mr. Kelly is trying, quietly and respectfully, to reduce the amount of free time the president has for fiery tweets by accelerating the start of his workday. Mr. Priebus also tried, with only modest success, to encourage Mr. Trump to arrive by 9 or 9:30 a.m." Eesh! Democrat or Republican, EVERYONE should be a little freaked out by this information. We're talking about the POTUS here! And he can't get to work by 9:30? He watches sometimes EIGHT HOURS of cable news a day? TWELVE DIET COKES??? How is he even standing?? His off-the-rail speeches are starting to make more sense... Video: Trump Accusers Demand Congressional Probe Into Alleged Sexual Misconduct! So of course Trump had to respond (exactly as one who read the article might expect), on Twitter: Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day - Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the "dumbest man on television!" Bad Reporting. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 11, 2017 Just real quick, some reasons for not believing this is "bad reporting." 1. We have plenty of circumstantial evidence of his TV habits; his tweets that seem apropos of nothing can usually be traced directly to the subjects being discussed on Fox & Friends or other cable news shows -- including Don Lemon, which the article claims he "hate-watches." 2. The information is not supposition; it's based on the accounts of "60 advisers, associates, friends and members of Congress." 3. The article was written by Maggie Haberman, Glenn Thrush, and Peter Baker, who have better access to Trump and the White House than any other reporters alive. Trump keeps calling it the "failing NY Times", but he gives extensive interviews with these three reporters every few months, including April and July of this year. Then again, maybe he'll say that was faked too. As the article tells us: "Mr. Trump's insistence on defining his own reality — his repeated claims, for example, that he actually won the popular vote — is immutable and has had a "numbing effect" on people who work with him, said Tony Schwartz, his ghostwriter on The Art of the Deal." That sound like "Fake News" to anyone? [Image via Kento Nara/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

James Gunn Fat Shames Donald Trump

In a move that proves fat shaming is an entirely invented offense for the sake of women feeling offended on an as-needed basis, politically progressive Hollywood director James Gunn came out and called Donald Trump a big fat liar. Emphasis on the fat. A long time Trump Administration anger-management, Gunn proposed on social media that Trump weighs far more than the 239 listed in Trump’s medical report. He proposed a $100K to Trump’s favorite charity if the President agreed to step on a neutral scale for cameras to identify is he’s telling the truth about his weight. Which is something of an odd accusation, as the long time White House doctor released the report and findings, so you’re actually accusing him of undercounting President Tubbies pounds. Regardless, this is the era that rewards sad male anger on the coasts. Gunn’s evidence for the deceit, a side by side photo of Trump and baseball bulked up home run hitter Albert Pujols, both officially listed at 6-3, circa 240. He picked a photo where Pujols appears more slender in frame and Trump appears like Santa Claus out of costume. Comparing body weights between people from photos is, at best, a shitty method. Both because angles have a ton to do with appearance, as any overweight woman taking selfies will tell you, and because we know muscle weighs more than fat, so a relatively slender old white dude with a big round gut isn’t going to weigh as much as his height counterpart who’s squatting heavy and burning up his charge card at GNC. There’s no doubt Trump is a fatty. Though you’d have to wonder if the naval doctor would lie about Trump’s weight for no particular reason. This is the same doctor who downplayed Obama’s smoking habit, but not as if he simply lied about it in medical evaluations and reports. Gunn’s sweltering rage clearly isn’t aimed at Trump’s BMI, but as he himself admits, his lying about his weight reveals an even deeper issue of the man being a cheat, a scoundrel, and a man who obviously eats the blood of black babies he steals in the night. When called out for fat shaming, Gunn did what any man would do these days, he tried to remind everybody this was about Trump being horrible, not him being a victimizer of big beautiful people: “This has nothing to do with fat shaming, it has to do with a continuous pattern of fabricating facts by both Trump and his administration…That’s the point of my tweet. The biggest issue we are facing is a dictator wannabe who is trying to destroy the press. When facts don’t matter, we can’t even begin to have real conversations and debates about policy with a figure like that leading our country.” The lying President claims are perhaps the most tired of them all. Every party accuses the other party’s President of being a massive liar. Obviously, they all do lie, so it’s technically accurate, but it’s so entirely rampant and cliche, it’s entirely moot as a point of contention. Like blaming a hooker for stealing your wallet. Sex workers lack morals. Were you aware? The inability of Trump-haters to form coherent arguments against a man who is so incredibly and obviously flawed in important terms, remains something of a mystery or a group headed by highly paid creatives. How can you create strong universe films like Guardians of the Galaxy and not be able to provide any profundity on the failings of the Trump administration beyond, he’s fat and lying about his weight. That’s how high school girls fight. The skinny ones at least. The ones who weigh in at Pujols plus or minus ten try to remain on the perimeter.

Former Presidents George H.W. Bush & George W. Bush Shame Trump With Eloquent, Unequivocal Response To White Supremacists

It's so easy to denounce white supremacists, even a Bush can do it! We kid the former presidents! At this point we'd LOVE to have either of their conservative asses back in the White House. Seriously, that's how low the bar has been lowered by Donald Trump.

At this point we'd LOVE to have either of their conservative asses back in the White House. Seriously, that's how low the bar has been lowered by Donald Trump. Related: Trump's Defense Of The Confederacy Just Lost Him America's Unions! George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, the 41st and 43rd Presidents respectively, released a statement on Wednesday about the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. And though it didn't mention Trump by name, it did serve to shame him by explaining how he should have reacted: "America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms. As we pray for Charlottesville, we are reminded of the fundamental truths recorded by that city's most prominent citizen in the Declaration of Independence: we are all created equal and endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights. We know these truths to be everlasting because we have seen the decency and greatness of our country." LOVE the reference to the Declaration of Independence. We don't know if it's coincidental, but the mention of a piece of American history of which Trump supporters have already shown their ignorance is some classy shade. Or maybe just sincere patriotism? Related: Obama's Response To The Charlottesville Rally Is Now The Most Liked Tweet Ever Damn, when someone just being patriotic seems to be shaming the POTUS, you know we're screwed. And the Bushes weren't the only Republicans who released statements that seemed to exist to shame Trump's declaration that there were "very fine people on both sides." Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wrote on Wednesday: "The white supremacist, KKK, and neo-nazi groups who brought hatred and violence to Charlottesville are now planning a rally in Lexington. Their messages of hate and bigotry are not welcome in Kentucky and should not be welcome anywhere in America. We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-nazis, and those who espouse their views are not supporters of American ideals and freedoms. We all have a responsibility to stand against hate and violence, wherever it raises its evil head." Again, no mention of Trump by name, but come on. No need. [Image via NBC/Twitter.].....»»

Unsurprisingly, the president's initial non-response -- a vague tweet condemning "hate" instead of denouncing white nationalism -- caused a whole lot of backlash, which POTUS continued to stay silent for. That is, until Big Pharma mogul Ken Frazier publicly resigned from the American Manufacturing Council -- and you better believe that got Trump talking! Related: Too Little, Too Late, Ivanka Trump On Monday, the Merck CEO released a statement announcing his resignation to take "a stand against intolerance and extremism." But before the president got to denouncing the neo-Nazis and the KKK rallying in the name of white supremacy, he jumped at the opportunity to lash out at Frazier, who is black, with a boardroom-style dig, writing: Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President's Manufacturing Council,he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES! — Donald J.
