Harvey Weinstein´s estranged wife is seeking support from Huma Abedin - a woman whose husband has been the center of a similar sex scandal. Two sources told Page Six that Georgina Chapman reached out to Abedin over the weekend as more women came forward accusing Weinstein of sexual misconduct. Abedin´s ex Anthony Weiner has made headlines several times for his sexting. Next month, he´s due to report for prison where he will serve a 21-month sentence for sending a lewd image to a minor. Chapman and Abedin met through Weinstein, who has been a major donor to Abedin´s boss, Hillary
She and Hillary and Huma all knew what they were married to, but the money or the power or the status was worth it. But they need a support group for coping with the fact that the world knows what an idiot they are for staying.
I´m going to say something very unpopular here. It is my understanding, and I could be mistaken, that Harvey Weinstein provided the resources to make his wife´s design company successful, not the least of which was arranging to have A list actresses wear her clothing to the Oscars as well as widely publicized elite international events, providing financial backing, and allowing her to gain access to the top echelon of the world´s wealthiest women. Also, she has had three of his children. While I think Mr. Weinstein is a monster, I also think his wife had to have a pretty good idea of the sort of man he is, maybe not all the salacious details and alleged criminal behavior, but certainly she knew generally what he was doing, and she absolutely knew about his tyrannical bullying behavior, he acted as he did in public. I don´t believe that her well crafted statement about those poor, poor women is sincere, I think it was written by a PR firm. He crashed and burned and she tossed him out the very first instant. Of course, it certainly leads one to doubt their relationship was ever based on anything of genuine value.
Had she reached out TO Huma in the past to console her?
There is something oxymoronic about both relationships: Huma, a Muslim, married to a Jew.
Georgina, a mere sprite, an elfin figure, tiny, floret, dainty, scrawny creating sheer, delicate, feminine garments, married to a grossly fat and piggish brute, ugly, beard of a bum or old sot, stumbling along down the streets, rolling down hill into the ditch.
Is someone going to say, Georgina saw beyond the exterior to the wonderful man hidden behind the flabs and folds of fat? (Did he make her look at him in the shower, too? ugh)
They knew. Huma always knew. Georgina always knew.
We didn´t exactly need the reinforcement but there is an insider club of powered elites running Hollywood, the Media, Academia and our government. Perfectly natural to reach out to a club member. It is also to be expected that she behave as though she isn´t part of the inside circle of knowledge.
At least she’s dumping him. Unlike Illary who married the slimeball Bill when she knew he was already cheating on her during their engagement. Now, after 40 years of dealing with and covering for him, she has the nerve to call HW’s behavior aborhant, disgusting and intolerable. Only Illary Clinton would have the delusional chutzpah to say something like that.
forget the outrageous behaviour... I love that Hillary wasn´t expecting someone to ask her about her money from him! LOL
From what I understand, any donations to her campaign, belong to the campaign, not to her personally for her to "donate" to charity. She should know that, but of course, they always keep the money.. she needs it now more than ever. The foundation is broke, Bill is not going to be getting those speaking engagements, her book has probably reached its peak of idiots willing to waste their money on excuses.
Now I hear she will be a professor at Columbia. Such a joke. She lost her law license because of lying and cheating.. so lets let her teach our little numbskulls how it´s done in the liberal elite world.
If this was not disgusting it would be funny! All of the women mentioned turned a blind eye to their husband sleazy, immoral behavior because they were Rich and Powerful! They are as guilty as their husbands.
As I understand it, Huma KNEW what her sleezebag husband was doing, partially because he did it over and over and was caught over and over. I think Weinsteen´s wife had a willing suspension of disbelief, which is another thing entirely.
Wiener didn´t even come close to Harvey. But I can see it now, Huma, Weinstein´s wife and Hillary commiserating about their dirty old men husbands over a martini or two. Not exactly the first wives club.
Chick-fil-A broke one of its core rules and opened on Sunday to feed stranded passengers at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport during a massive power outage. The fast-food chain, which is famously known for being closed on Sundays to give employees a day to rest and worship, got to work to help feed thousands of travelers during a nearly 11-hour power outage at the world´s busiest airport, local NBC affiliate WXIA reports.Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed thanked Chick-fil-A on Twitter for donating 2,000 meals.

President Trump is set to outline Monday a new national security strategy that reflects his “America First” vision — focusing on economic strength, American prosperity and the preservation of peace through strength.The new document “affirms the belief that America’s economic security is national security,” an administration official said, according to Agence France-Presse. It also reflects a determination to push for balance in US economic relations with the rest of the world, particularly China.“The greatest weapon we have is our strong GDP,” the official said, citing Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.The president, who has taken an aggressive stance on trade, vows to
American optimism on the economy is reaching new heights and President Donald Trump´s approval ratings look to be benefiting, at least somewhat. The CNBC All-American Economic Survey found that for the first time in at least 11 years, more than half of respondents to the survey rated the economy as good or excellent, while a near record 41 percent expected the economy to improve in the next year. (Graph) "We´re not measuring a marginal change in the economy, we´re measuring a different economy,´´ said Public Opinion Strategies´ Micah Roberts, the Republican pollster for the survey. The poll of 800 adults
In report after report following Donald Trump’s election, career staffers at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration kept saying the same thing: climate change is real, serious and man-made. That’s surprising because Trump has called global warming a hoax. His political appointees at the Commerce Department, which oversees NOAA, have complained to its staff, but stopped short of demanding changes or altering the findings. So the reports, blog posts and public updates kept flowing. The bureaucrats won.“Everything coming out of NOAA does not reflect this administration,” said David Schnare, a retired lawyer for an industry-backed think tank who served on
Some years back, I decided I had to quit the teaching profession to which I had dedicated half my life. The modern academy, I felt, was so far gone that restoration was no longer possible.Indeed, I now believe that complete collapse is the only hope for the future, but as Woody Allen said about death, I´d rather not be there when it happens. Three reasons determined my course of action. For one thing, administration had come to deal less with academic issues and more with rules of conduct and punitive codes of behavior, as if it were a policing body
By Sunday morning, a multimillion-dollar house on the top of Park Hill Lane in Montecito was still smoldering and on fire. All that stood were cement blocks that outlined the frame of the house — once yellow, it had been turned black by the fire.Chunks of glass and brick from the house came tumbling down as firefighters made their way up the street. Although an epic firefight Saturday was largely a success, preventing the mammoth Thomas fire from sweeping into whole neighborhoods in Montecito and Santa Barbara, some expensive homes were lost in this affluent coastal community known for its
CNN, never a friend of its competitor Fox News, now appears to have declared open war on the country’s #1 cable news channel (Fox) and its star host, the cable news ratings leader Sean Hannity. The latest salvo came on Sunday December 17, 2017 on CNN’s weekly media analysis program, Reliable Sources. CNN sniping at Fox News is nothing new. The enmity between the two cable news giants goes back years. Recently, with opposition to President Trump turning white hot and talk of impeachment or obstruction of justice in the air, CNN has been aiming more of its fire at
The National Football League has lost millions of fans and seen its profits and ratings tank as a result of the "#takeaknee protests that spread across the league in the first few weeks of the season. But thanks to a new commitment to social justice issues, borne out of the Colin Kaepernick-led protests, the NFL will actually take part in a training program that will help to focus the next generation of activist athletes looking to make a "social justice" difference. The "Advocacy in Sport" workshop, presented by the NFL in concert with Morehouse College, will teach student athletes “how
Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said if the Democrats took control of the Senate after the 2018 midterms elections, the corporate tax rate would go up.Partial transcript as follows: DICKERSON: If Democrats take control are corporate taxes going up? SANDERS: I think we’ll take a very hard look at this entire tax bill and make it a tax bill that works for the middle class and working families not for the top 1 percent and large multi-national corporations. DICKERSON: There’s no question that in order to achieve all of the things you want, taxes are
American President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke on the phone again Sunday, with the Russian leader phoning Trump at Camp David. Putin called Trump to thank him for a CIA tip that helped thwart a series of bombings in St. Petersburg, the Kremlin said. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the conversation in a tweet. Scroll down for video (Photos) Putin expressed gratitude during the call for information provided by the CIA that allowed Russia’s top domestic security agency to track down and arrest a group of suspects that was planning to bomb Kazan Cathedral
Despite the real possibilities of alienating paying customers, the NFL, Starbucks, Target, Chick Fil-A and a host of entertainers continue choosing sides in an escalating culture war centering on America’s past and future. As a new poll documents, citizens increasingly fear expressing their love of country or expressing their political views, for instance by wearing a Make America Great Again cap.George Barna, executive director of the American Culture and Faith Institute, recently released a patriotism poll documenting a surprising degree of polarization and politicization of Americans after the first year of President Donald Trump’s governance. Different world views, values and
WASHINGTON – Senator-elect Doug Jones is already breaking with some prominent Democrats by refusing to call for President Trump to step down over ongoing sexual harassment allegations. “I don’t think that the president ought to resign at this point,” Jones (D-Ala.) told CNN’s “State of the Union.” In his first round of Sunday show interviews since securing a stunning victory in red state Alabama over accused sexual predator Roy Moore, Jones said he doesn’t want to get bogged down in Trump’s sexual harassment allegations and would rather work on “real issues.” “I think we need to move on and not
Over 700 employees at the Environmental Protection Agency have quit or taken early retirement during the Trump administration so far, bringing the agency close to employment levels not seen since Reagan. ThinkProgress, whose senior editor is scared of his plumber who he fears may have voted for Trump, is warning that the exodus will lead to "dirtier air" and "dirtier water." "Since Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt took over the top job at the agency in March, more than 700 employees have either retired, taken voluntary buyouts, or quit, signaling the second-highest exodus of employees from the agency in nearly a
An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment. Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package. The woman complained to CNBC executives about Matthews making inappropriate comments and jokes about her while in the company
There’s bad news and there’s worse news for President Donald Trump in new polls released this week. First comes the latest round of polling showing that Trump is the most unpopular president on record. Just 32% of respondents to a new Associated Press-NORC poll said they approved of the job Trump is doing as president, while an overwhelming 67% they disapproved. Among those who don’t think the president is doing a good job, more than half say they “strongly disapprove” of his work. The poll — conducted earlier this month — also suggests that nearly 70% of Americans believe the United States is “heading
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is returning to Arizona and will miss the final vote on his party’s tax bill this week, CBS News reported Sunday. McCain, who has been hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center suffering from the side effects of his treatment for brain cancer, reportedly left Washington, D.C., on Sunday to return home for the holidays. This means he will not be in D.C. for the GOP tax bill vote, which is expected to take place early in the week. Republicans have won over two key votes for the measure, meaning they should still have the razor-thin majority needed to
I don’t know whether this is comedy or a sign that in rural America, Democrats really don’t have anyone to run in statewide races. There were rumors that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) could become the next director of the CIA, current CIA Director Mike Pompeo would become secretary of state, and current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be asked to take a hike. Talk about some unwelcome Thanksgiving news if you’re Tillerson. The Trump White House has rejected the notion that this plan is in the works. Tillerson himself said he’s never considered leaving his current post.
For much of the year, Kirsten Gillibrand’s critics — sensing a presidential aspirant in their midst — had assumed that the New York senator could not hear enough about herself. For one day at least, it appeared she had. It had been about 10 hours since President Trump accused her of “begging” for campaign contributions that she “would do anything” to secure, and the Ms. Gillibrand, driving with her 14-year-old son on Tuesday evening, flipped on the radio looking for an update on the Senate race in Alabama. The top story, instead, was her. The radio went off again. What, exactly,
Democrats, who have a monopoly of power in California politics, are proposing to spend $1 billion a year to provide health care to illegal immigrants living in the state. Medi-Cal, which is the state’s Medicaid program, would eliminate legal residency requirements.The proposal was offered as part of a $4.3 billion proposal from San Francisco Democrat Assemblyman Phil Ting, the head of the Assembly budget committee. According to NBC Bay Area, 7% of people residing in California lack health coverage, many of them illegal immigrants. California has already eliminated legal residency requirements for Medicaid coverage for
Hillary Clinton responded to a "Saturday Night Live" actor who showed off a new tattoo in the former Democratic presidential nominee´s likeness.Pete Davidson posted an image of his new Hillary ink on his Instagram page, saying it was a "gift" for the 2016 runner-up."Wanted to get @HillaryClinton a Christmas gift so I got a tattoo of my hero," Davidson, 24, wrote on Instagram. "Thanks for being such a bad-[expletive] and one of the strongest people in the universe," he wrote. (Tweet) Clinton later commented on Davidson´s post, thanking him for his support."Thanks," the former first lady wrote. "This makes it
It appears the Obama Administration weaponized the Federal Bureau of Investigation just like they weaponized the Internal Revenue Service. The Obama administration used government agencies to wage a covert war on their political enemies. This is an all-out war. We have a growing mountain of evidence to suggest the FBI was attempting to overthrow a duly elected president. We have evidence to suggest the FBI was protecting Hillary Clinton so she might be elected president. There is no smoking gun just yet – but the evidence is staggering – it is simply staggering. Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) told the Todd
O.J. Simpson´s former lawyer and an investigator who worked on his case have revealed plans for a book they say will finally put to rest the public´s disbelief that he was acquitted of murder. F.Lee Bailey was one of several lawyers who worked on Simpson´s case in the 1990s. (Snip) Now 84, Bailey and Pat McKenna, the investigator who the defense hired, are shopping a book to publishers which they say will finally address what millions have been incredulous over for decades - how did OJ get off? ´We’re not writing this to make a fortune. ´We’re writing this to
The Democracy Dies in Darkness Café is located conveniently near the Capitol, the Hill and the FBI headquarters. It’s open all night and I stopped in for a late-night coffee with my friend, a fiction novelist who was depressed. “I spent a year writing about a coup attempt against an outsider who by strategic brilliance defeated the handpicked candidate of a cabal of establishment powerhouses. It involved the highest officials of the FBI and Department of Justice. They manipulated a FISA Court into letting them electronically surveil the candidate and all who worked with him, unmasked their names, leaked what
PART I A GLOBAL THREAT EMERGES How Hezbollah turned to trafficking cocaine and laundering money through used cars to finance its expansion. In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation. The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was
