Vice President Mike Pence Calls Claims He"s Running For President In 2020 "Laughable & Absurd"!

Mike Pence will NOT be running for president in 2020. The Vice President made this fact abundantly clear after the New York Times suggested he was considering a run for the office. Not only did the Veep drag the report as being "categorically false," but he also hit back by calling the allegations "laughable and absurd."

Doth protest too much, sir?? Nonetheless, Vice President Pence noted on Twitter: My statement regarding the absurd @NYtimes article. pic.twitter.com/htvYSbS2dy — Vice President Pence (@VP) August 6, 2017 Well, there you have it! Although, to be fair, the NYT didn't say out right that Pence was planning to challenge Donald in 2020. Rather they said the VP was "acting more like a second-term vice president hoping to clear the field than a No. 2 sworn in a little over six months ago." Still, we have a feeling this report left those working in the Oval Office shaken up. We mean, the Trump administration made sure Kellyanne Conway took shots at the article during her recent appearance on This Week With George Stephanopoulos. After calling the claim "complete fiction," the White House adviser added: "It is absolutely true that the vice president is getting ready for 2020 — for reelection as vice president." Phew. As much as we hate Donald Trump, we're terrified at the idea of Pence becoming Commander-In-Chief. [Image via Dennis Van Tine/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

Miranda Lambert Vows She "Won"t Take Pain For Granted Anymore" AND Straight Up Refuses To Pen A Political Song!

Miranda Lambert is letting her music do the talking. As you may've noticed, the blonde country crooner has done little press for her December released double-album, The Weight of These Wings.

As you may've noticed, the blonde country crooner has done little press for her December released double-album, The Weight of These Wings. That's mainly because, at the time, the Vice singer wasn't ready to get emotional about her failed marriage to Blake Shelton -- especially since she already did that in the LP itself. Video: Cara's Music Video Debut Will Make You Feel Everything Miranda chose to release The Weight of These Wings with little to no media attention after she shut down a prerelease interview with a journalist who asked about her divorce. On that decision, the hitmaker recently explained to Billboard: "I just didn't need to talk about the record. If you want to hear my side of the story or my opinion of what happened, it's all on there. There's no mystery anymore -- take from it what you will." And, boy, is she right! Unsurprisingly, Vice has stood out on the album for its raw power. This likely has something to do with the fact that the 33-year-old wrote the track on the day her divorce news hit the internet. Lambert dished: "I walked in with guns blazing. I just knew one thing: I didn't want a breakup record... I was like, ‘Let's feel it all.' I was ready to have the days where I can't even stand up and the days where I'm celebrating." YAS, kween. Despite being one of the country scene's biggest stars, the Texas native has found her success by being different than the typical country starlet. On her career post-Shelton, the songstress quipped: "I'm not going to try to fit in, but I'm not trying to be an outlaw -- I'm just trying to do me. And if that's carving my own path or making my own lane, then I'll do that." Hear! Hear! Still, it seems as though Miranda has learned a thing or two post her public heartbreak, as she relayed: "I'm more known for my fiery personality and my confidence, but that's not me all the time. I won't look at things ever again in the same light, because different things in your life bring you to a deeper level with yourself. I won't take pain for granted anymore." But the Over You artist is certainly getting her groove back as she spends her days in Nashville surrounded by pals. And, trust us, she does NOT miss her Oklahoma days with The Voice judge. Miranda honestly stated: "I lived in a small town in Oklahoma. I remember I had to write a song for a Dodge RAM commercial. It was hard. I barely got it out, and I was like, ‘Man, I need some fuel. I have to go fall in love with it again.' So Nashville does that for me." Partying aside, Miranda couldn't be more focused on her career and hopes other female artists find their success in the industry. After noting that men dominating country radio "is just a phase," the Nashville Star alum added: "I think there was a time [for women] before, and there will be again, and that doesn't stop any of us. I love country radio when they all play me, and when they don't, I think that sucks." You tell 'em, girl! Although, Miranda doesn't really care what radio thinks anymore as everyone is streaming everything these days. In fact, all Lambert cares about is holding the door "open for the girls coming behind [her]." Shockingly, with all her badassery, the Pistol Annies member has zero plans to get political. Even though she has a platform to make a difference, Miranda shared: "I am a 100 percent believer in not ever using the platform that I've built for anything other than music, because music to me is an escape from your own reality. I don't want to go to a show and hear somebody preach about their opinions... It's so divided [in politics], you can't win anyway -- and what are you winning? For someone to agree with you, and now you've spoken your piece and pissed off many other people, just for one person to go, ‘She's right'? It doesn't do any good." Well, that's a tad disappointing. Then again, not everyone can be Katy Perry and her purposeful pop! Keep doing you, Miranda. Know that we're rooting for you! [Image via Billboard.].....»»

Angelina Jolie Denies Claims Of A Disturbing "Game" In Casting Process For First They Killed My Father

Even though Angelina Jolie may have gotten very real with the folks over at Vanity Fair for their latest issue, there is one thing she is very strongly denying: she did NOT set up a disturbing "game" to cast children in her upcoming film First They Killed My Father. The actress spoke out on Saturday evening, [...] Even though Angelina Jolie may have gotten very real with the folks over at Vanity Fair for their latest issue, there is one thing she is very strongly denying: she did NOT set up a disturbing "game" to cast children in her upcoming film First They Killed My Father. The actress spoke out on Saturday evening, vehemently denying accusations that had been flying around about allegedly disturbing actions undertaken by the casting directors for her film. Related: Brad Pitt Confirms He's "Got Nothing To Hide" The controversy all started when Vanity Fair reported about an audition exercise the film's casting directors allegedly used to weed out impoverished child actors and find their eventual lead: "In order to find their lead, to play young Loung Ung, the casting directors set up a game, rather disturbing in its realism: they put money on the table and asked the child to think of something she needed the money for, and then to snatch it away. The director would pretend to catch the child, and the child would have to come up with a lie." WTF?! That sounds incredibly disturbing, and intense, and also... not true, according to Angelina. Related: Get More Angelina Jolie News HERE The mom and actress sounded off in a statement adamantly refuting that claim, saying: "I am upset that a pretend exercise in an improvisation, from an actual scene in the film, has been written about as if it was a real scenario. The suggestion that real money was taken from a child during an audition is false and upsetting. I would be outraged myself if this had happened. ... Every measure was taken to ensure the safety, comfort and well-being of the children on the film starting from the auditions through production to the present." Furthermore, another source who had knowledge of the movie's casting process reportedly backed up Angelina's statement: the children were aware all they were doing was improvising a scene from the film, and there was no actual money involved. Whew! First They Killed My Father premieres on Netflix this September. [Image via Michael Wright/WENN.].....»»

As we reported, POTUS was invited (like every other sitting President) to speak at the annual Boy Scout Jamboree, where he took the opportunity to bring up things like the size of his inauguration crowd (still!), the current health care bill, The Apprentice, Christmas, winning the election, living in New York high society back before these kids were even born, and did we mention winning the election? It was truly something else. Anyway, it has garnered a lot of attention for numerous reasons over the past week -- but mainly because it was super offensive, ill-informed, and took away attention from all of these scouts' accomplishments. Related: Defense Dept. Advises Military To Ignore Trump's Transgender Ban In a statement released on Thursday, the Chief Scout Executive for the Boy Scouts of America, Michael Surbaugh, apologized to anyone who might've been alarmed by Trump's words and said their intention was never to make a political statement. Let's be clear... The Boy Scouts of America. Are apologizing. For the behavior. Of the President of the United States. We just... Surbaugh wrote: "...We know the past few days have been overshadowed by the remarks offered by the President of the United States. I want to extend my sincere apologies to those in our Scouting family who were offended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the jamboree. That was never our intent. The invitation for the sitting U.S. President to visit the National Jamboree is a long-standing tradition that has been extended to the leader of our nation that has had a Jamboree during his term since 1937. It is in no way an endorsement of any person, party or policies. For years, people have called upon us to take a position on political issues, and we have steadfastly remained non-partisan and refused to comment on political matters. We sincerely regret that politics were inserted into the Scouting program." Adding: "While we live in a challenging time in a country divided along political lines, the focus of Scouting remains the same today as every day." Aw, poor guy. Let's just hope Trump won't be invited back next year......»»
