Related: Michelle Calls Out THIS Double Standard From When She Was First Lady! Barack Obama's wife told WFCO President and CEO Lauren Casteel: "The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut. Knowing that after eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who won't see me for what I am because of my skin color." Adding: "Women, we endure those cuts in so many ways that we don't even notice we're cut. We are living with small tiny cuts, and we are bleeding every single day. And we're still getting up."

As the White House Communications Director, you'd think Anthony Scaramucci would know better than to name drop Joe Paterno -- the disgraced football coaching legend who was fired from Penn State for his role in the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal -- when talking about "honor" and "dignity." But, here we are. On Thursday, Scaramucci called into CNN's New Day where he went on a rant suggesting his financial disclosure report was leaked, even though it was public information. Related: Sean Spicer's Post-White House Gig May Be Dancing With The Stars Donald Trump's adviser said: "Remember Joe Paterno? What would he say? ‘Act like you've been there before.' Act with honor and dignity and respect and hold the confidence of the presidency in his office." All of us: Wanna know the best part? "Act like you've been there before" is originally a Vince Lombardi (NOT JoePa) quote! LOLz! Ch-ch-check out Twitter's confused reactions (below)!!

Father Publicly Disowns Son After He Took Part In "Pro-White Activist" Marches In Charlottesville Rally

Maybe listen to dad on this one. A North Dakota father has publicly disowned his son after the 30-year-old took part in the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend.

A North Dakota father has publicly disowned his son after the 30-year-old took part in the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend. On Monday, Pearce Tefft penned a moving letter to his son Peter, warning that he will be ostracized from his family if he refuses to let go of his "hateful opinions." Video: Late Night On Trump's Inability To Condemn White Supremacists In a post on the Forum of Fargo website, Pearce wrote: "My son is not welcome at our family gatherings any longer. I pray my prodigal son will renounce his hateful beliefs and return home. Then and only then will I lay out the feast." Peter calls himself a pro-white activist who went to Charlottesville to protest against the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. The "Unite the Right" rally erupted into violence after "pro-white activists" clashed with counter-protesters demonstrating against the event. Peter was seen in news footage at the event and, days later, promoted his cause on CBS Minnesota, whining about how "white people deserve civil rights." Related: Jennifer Lawrence Encourages Unmasking White Supremacists! He also flipped the term "white supremacy" on its head, explaining: "As far as the term white supremacist goes, in my view, anybody that thinks white people don't need advocacy, they are the white supremacists." Uh... wut? Like most, Peter's family does Na-zi the ways of his bizarre logic. His nephew Jacob Scott has described the pro-white activist as a "crazy Nazi," telling the Forum: "He scares us all. We don't feel safe around him, and we don't know how he came to be this way… We reject him wholly — both him as a vile person who has himself made violent threats against our family, and also his hideous ideology, which we abhor." Pearce echoed the family's sentiments, making it clear his son's "twisted worldview" was not learned at home. In response to the multiple threats the family received, Peter's father added: "His hateful opinions are bringing hateful rhetoric to his siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews as well as his parents. Why must we be guilty by association? Again, none of his beliefs were learned at home. We do not, never have, and never will, accept his twisted worldview." Yikes. How did we get here, again?

Game Of Thrones Hatches A Mad Plan, Teases Madder Queens, & The Bastard Reunion We"ve Been Waiting For! Eastwatch Recap HERE!

Winter is here — which means the people of Westeros need to put their houses and grudges aside to fight a common enemy. That's the brilliant plan that brings our new favorite group of Game of Thrones boys North of the Wall — including one bastard we haven't seen in years! The latest hour of the HBO [...] Winter is here -- which means the people of Westeros need to put their houses and grudges aside to fight a common enemy. That's the brilliant plan that brings our new favorite group of Game of Thrones boys North of the Wall -- including one bastard we haven't seen in years! The latest hour of the HBO fantasy series ended with Jon Snow's mission to end all missions: capture a wight in hopes of convincing Cersei and Daenerys to form an armistice against the Army of the Dead. Related: Celebs Who LOVE Game Of Thrones! It's a visual fans would die to see -- but alas, nothing on this show ends up like the characters plan. At least that seemed to be a running theme through Eastwatch. Get the full recap (below)! Bend The Knee The episode kicks off in the aftermath of the Loot Train Attack, with Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) giving the defeated Lannister soldiers a choice: either bend the knee or get burnt to flames. Only two are stubborn enough to take the second option, Randyll Tarly and Dickon Tarly, who refuse to submit to the Mother of Dragons. She refuses to back down as well, and roasts the Tarly's alive. Once the Dragon Queen is back in Dragonstone, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) hatch an idea that could put an end to this petty war amongst men: bring Cersei evidence of this Army of the Dead to convince her to join forces with Jon and Dany (who still isn't 100% sold on the White Walkers herself just yet). It's an idea crazy enough to work -- mostly because it's the only idea left -- so, Ser Davos and Tyrion take an impromptu trip to King's Landing to get the ear of Cersei's most trusted hand, Jaime Lannister. After surviving that plunge into the river after last week's battle, Jaime returns to King's Landing to find a greater distance between him and Cersei (Lena Headey) -- she doesn't seem to give any fucks that it was Olenna Tyrell who poisoned their son Joffrey, and not Tyrion as she long suspected (wished?). Jaime then finds himself in a secret meeting with his traitor brother, now serving for the opposing army, who explains his plans to convince Cersei that the White Walkers are real. Once Jaime brings this news back to Cersei, he discovers an even more shocking revelation: she's pregnant with his child and plans on announcing it publically! Oh, and she knows about his secret meeting with Tyrion -- and, yeah, never betray the evil pregnant queen again. Rocking The Boat Meanwhile in King's Landing, Ser Davos has unfinished business in Flea Bottom -- to reunite with Gendry Baratheon (FINALLY!!!) who is no longer still rowing, but has been forging weapons for the Lannister army right under Cersei's nose. He immediately signs up for whatever mission Davos is offering, and later shows off his deadly skills with that cast-iron hammer by bashing in two nosy Gold Coats. As Tyrion says: "He'll do." Over in Oldtown, Sam is FED UP with his intern work in the Citadel. After Archmaester Ebrose brushes off a message from Bran warning about the walkers marching on the Wall, Sam decides he can no longer idly stand by with the maesters and ignore the looming threat. In fact, he's so fired up he completely ignores Gilly accidentally coming across a MAJOR revelation. According to an old scroll, a High Septon had annulled Rhaegar Targaryen's marriage in Dorne and married him to another woman (Jon's mother, Lyanna Stark). This means not only is Jon Rhaegar's son, but his legitimate son -- and rightful heir to the Iron Throne! (Sry, Dany!) Thankfully, Gilly will have a more appropriate time to reveal that information, as she and Lil' Sam head off to the North with big Sam and a bunch of books from the restricted section of the library. Stark Secrets Things are also heating up back in Winterfell, specifically between Arya (Maisie Williams) and Sansa (Sophie Turner). The sisters are already back to their bickering ways, but this time each Stark girl holds much more power. After some Stark bannerman suggest that Sansa should be their ruler in the Great Hall, Arya points out to her sister that she didn't extinguish the complaints as decisively as she should have. Sansa retorts that "cutting off heads" like Ayra is used to doing isn't the way to get people to work together. But Arya swipes back, hinting that Sansa's thirst for glory is evidenced by her taking residence in their parents' chambers. Easy, girls! Arya later sneaks around Winterfell following Littlefinger. She sneaks into his room to look for a scroll she hears him speak about with Maester Wolkan, but instead finds the letter Sansa was forced to write in Season One, asking Robb and Catelyn to pledge allegiance to Joffrey. As she leaves his room, it turns out Arya isn't that great at being faceless -- because the sneaky Littlefinger has been watching her, too. The Boys Are Back Up North Back in Dragonstone, Jorah Mormont has returned and replaced his allegiance as Daenerys' number one fanboy. But he doesn't stay for long -- instead, he volunteers to head up north for the wight-catching party beyond the Wall. Dany's fine with Jorah leaving, but isn't quite so happy when Jon declares he needs to lead the expedition. She says she hasn't given him permission to leave, which launches the King in the North into a passionate speech about trusting a "stranger" -- though Dany's eyes reveal she sees him as much more than that. The final scene of the episode teased all your favorite Westeros boyfriends putting aside their differences in the Eastwatch castle. Jon, Gendry, Jorah, and Davos try to convince Tormund, Beric Dondarrion, Thoros of Myr, and the Hound to join their wight-hunting party. The group has some history -- Turmond isn't a fan of Jorah because his father used to hunt wildlings as Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. Gendry points out that Beric and Thoros once sold him off to Melisandre. The Hound is, well, just the Hound. But Jon reminds them that their all on the same side now because they're all breathing, and the men agree to embark on perhaps the most important mission yet: to capture a White Walker and convince the feuding Queens to join forces. Bring your coats -- next week's episode is gonna be extra chilly! [Image via HBO.].....»»

Everything You Need To Know About Anthony Scaramucci"s Wildly Uncensored Rant About Trump"s White House Staff!

Anthony Scaramucci is really taking D.C. by storm… and by "storm" we mean category five hurricane. The newly-hired White House communications director stirred the pot on Thursday after an explosive and vulgar interview with Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker, during which he took shots at Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon (who both opposed Scaramucci's hiring [...] Anthony Scaramucci is really taking D.C. by storm... and by "storm" we mean category five hurricane. The newly-hired White House communications director stirred the pot on Thursday after an explosive and vulgar interview with Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker, during which he took shots at Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon (who both opposed Scaramucci's hiring last week). To catch you up, The Mooch is on a crusade to stop "leaks" coming from inside the White House, and he's willing to take down anyone who gets in his way -- including his own colleagues. After news got out about his dinner at the White House with Donald Trump, Melania Trump, Sean Hannity, and former Fox News executive Bill Shine, Scaramucci called Lizza to find out who leaked the information. He later suggested it was Priebus, who he described as "a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac" who has been trying to "cock-block" him for the past six months. Aside from the fact that our country is ran by frat boys, this is a good time to mention that Scaramucci never told Lizza this interview was off the record. Rookie mistake. Related: Blake Lively Wrote The Book On Killing Trolls With Kindness! Here are a few highlights from the expletive-filled conversation: -- Scaramucci threatened to "eliminate everyone in the comms team and we'll start over" if Lizza didn't offer up his source: "They'll all be fired by me. I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I'll fire tomorrow. I'll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus -- if you want to leak something -- he'll be asked to resign very shortly." -- The financier said he's not interested in media attention, unlike other senior officials (who are also very flexible?): "I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own cock. I'm not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I'm here to serve the country." OK, we 100% didn't need that image in our heads. -- The former corporate exec tried to guilt the journalist into coughing up his source by questioning his patriotism: "You're an American citizen, this is a major catastrophe for the American country. So I'm asking you as an American patriot to give me a sense of who leaked it." Reminder: this is about a TWEET that Lizza sent about a DINNER. -- Scaramucci suggested he had more info about other White House aides, and that there are "lie detectors" involved, by saying: "O.K., the Mooch showed up a week ago. This is going to get cleaned up very shortly, O.K.? Because I nailed these guys. I've got digital fingerprints on everything they've done through the F.B.I. and the fucking Department of Justice." One thing's for sure, Mooch's loyalty to Trump, although probably misguided, remains steadfast: "What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President's agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people." Anthony ended the phone call by telling Lizza: "Yeah, let me go, though, because I've gotta start tweeting some shit to make this guy crazy." That's when he sent out via Twitter in a now-deleted message: "In light of the leak of my financial info which is a felony. I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept #swamp @Reince45." We're sure Trump is somewhere (watching Fox & Friends, probably) beaming with pride. Anyway, you should totally read the full conversation (yes, there's more) HERE, but let's get on with the aftermath. Understandably, Lizza's report went viral in a matter of minutes. He responded to the outrage by defending his "colorful" language: I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight for @realDonaldTrump's agenda. #MAGA — Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 27, 2017 I made a mistake in trusting in a reporter. It won't happen again. — Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 28, 2017 Sean Spicer's replacement Sarah Huckabee Sanders tried to clear the firestorm that ensued by telling reporters she hopes Scaramucci can reel in the gossip, especially about fellow Trump administration staffers: "Anthony has put out a statement that has made pretty clear that sometimes he is a passionate guy and he has made pretty clear that sometimes he has let that passion get the better of him. I don't anticipate he will do it again." Adding of his threats to "kill" the entire comms team: "In terms of people's safety, I certainly hate that somebody feels that way, but I have worked with an incredible team over the last six months. We have a great group of people. I love coming to work every day. I consider it a privilege. I certainly feel very safe in the building, and happy to be here." We certainly can't be the only ones who think this shit is b-a-n-a-n-a-s, so let us know your thoughts in the comments (below)! [Image via Ron Sachs/CNP/Media Punch.].....»»

The White House communications director has backed out of his speaking engagements at Politicon this weekend following the fallout he's facing from a vulgar interview with the New Yorker. Organizers of the Pasadena event -- which gathers politicians, media personalities and celebrities -- had said earlier in the week that Scaramucci still planned to attend, even after being named Donald Trump's communications director last week. Of course, that was before his expletive-filled phone call with reporter Ryan Lizza, in which he bashed his White House colleagues, went public. Video: Late Night Rips Scaramucci Amid His White House Drama! According to a spokeswoman for the event, organizers were informed overnight that the Mooch would not be coming in the wake of the on-the-record interview. As we reported, Scaramucci went the fuck off earlier this week on the leak of his financial disclosure form, saying he reported it to the FBI and the Justice Department. On Thursday, Lizza reported that Scaramucci called him up the previous night and suggested the leakers were none other than White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, along with Trump's senior strategist (and alleged self dick sucker) Steve Bannon. Related: Twitter Outraged Over Scaramucci Quoting Joe Paterno!

I’m Phoebe on there,” the 37-year-old Girls Trip star told host Stephen Colbert about the spoof. “I’m a white woman on paper; I’ve been a white woman for the last five, ten years now.” “What do you mean ‘white on paper?’” Colbert asked. “Like seven years ago, the census had come around, right? The census came and they showed up to my house, and they asked me what my nationality was, ’cause they was counting to see how many black people are in the neighborhood. I was like, ‘What do you mean? I’m American.’ And he was like, ‘No, what’s your race?’ I was like, ‘Oh! So, we’re doing that today? We’re bringing racism in my front door on this day? What are you, colorblind?’ And he said, ‘Yes,’” Tiffany joked. “I was like, ‘Ooh! This is my chance.’ I had like a That’s So Raven moment; I went into my brain and I was like, ‘Girl, this is your chance. What do you mean this is my chance? Obama said it’s time for change; you could be whatever you want to be today.’ And I was like, ‘You’re right! I can be whatever I want to be.’ And I looked at him and said, ‘I’m car-casian.’ Because I got a car and I know a lot of Asians, so I just put that together. I told him was ‘car-casian’ and he said OK. He checked the white box and it has been fantastic. Oh, my goodness.” Don’t forget to check out Tiffany in her newest comedy special She Ready: From Hood To Hollywood premiering on Showtime on Friday (August 18)!

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. Related: Trump's Defense Of The Confederacy Just Lost Him America's [...] 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. 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.].....»»

Halsey Gets Real About Growing Up Biracial In Playboy!

For the upcoming music issue of Playboy, the 22-year-old got real about her miscarriage, Planned Parenthood, and what it was like growing up biracial but "passing" for white. Related: Charli XCX & Halsey Cover The Spice Girls When asked about being half black, the songstress said: "I'm half black. My dad managed a car dealership, wore a suit to work, had a nice watch, was always clean-shaven, handsome, played golf on the weekends. And people would come up to him like, 'Yo, brotha! What's up!' And my dad would be like, 'Hi.…'" But for her personally, the Colors singer found it tricky to navigate at times: "I'm white-passing. I've accepted that about myself and have never tried to control anything about black culture that's not mine. I'm proud to be in a biracial family, I'm proud of who I am, and I'm proud of my hair. One of my big jokes a long time ago was 'I look white, but I still have white boys in my life asking me why my nipples are brown.' Every now and then I experience these racial blips. I look like a white girl, but I don't feel like one. I'm a black woman. So it's been weird navigating that. When I was growing up I didn't know if I was supposed to love TLC or Britney." As for the reaction she gets when people learn she's not 100% white, Halsey explained: "White guilt is funny, but this is a really hard time for white allies. People don't want to do too much but want to do enough, and in my bubble of Los Angeles I'm surrounded by a lot of good people with a lot of good intentions. But as I learned in this past election, my bubble is just a small fraction of how this country operates. That is ultimately my greatest frustration with the public perception of any sort of activism: the mentality of 'Well, it's not affecting me.' Open your fucking eyes." Ch-ch-check out everything else she had to say during the interview HERE! [Image via Playboy.].....»»
