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.
The death of Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie, a music superstar beloved for songs about culture, small towns and hockey, triggered an outpouring of tributes and grief across Canada on Wednesday - including a teary-eyed press conference from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Downie, 53, who was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in 2015, died on Tuesday night surrounded by his family. Weeping openly, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told reporters that he had drawn strength and inspiration from the nation´s best known songwriter. ´We lost one of the very best of us this morning. Gord, was my friend, but Gord
SACRAMENTO — Organizers of a campaign to qualify a ballot measure that would repeal the state’s gas tax and new vehicle fees unveiled their growing coalition Wednesday at the state Republican Party headquarters, where GOP gubernatorial candidate John Cox said he will make a “substantial” donation to the effort. Cox, a wealthy businessman, declined to give specifics about how much he will donate to the campaign, which named him honorary co-chair. To qualify for the November 2018 ballot, organizers of the measure have to collect 584,000 signatures, a hefty lift for any effort. The ballot measure would be a constitutional
In a taped interview that aired today the security guard, Jesus Campos, and maintenance worker, Stephen Schuck, from the Mandalay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, speak to Ellenn Degeneres about the October 1st massacre at Mandalay Bay. Worth noting, according to the well-prepared and rolled out script, Mr. Campos and Mr. Schuck will not be giving any additional interviews with the media. As such, it can be intellectually assumed the content of this interview was thoroughly vetted and prepared after consideration from all stakeholders. (Video) The emphasis on the “hero angle” is inauthentic, too heavy, and appears structured as
Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News senior judicial analyst, weighed in on the report, telling FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on “Varney & Co.,” “The significance is an FBI acknowledgement that Huma Abedin, Mrs. Anthony Weiner, when she had a top security clearance as the number two assistant to Hillary Clinton when Hillary was Secretary of State, regularly sent copies of sensitive material to her own laptop so she could look at it at night, either knowing or forgetting that her husband had access to it as well.” Napolitano said this gives insight into the State Department’s casual approach to top secret
The socks worn by former President George H.W. Bush while performing the coin toss at Super Bowl 51 will be auctioned off by a Roman Catholic diocese in Maine. The Diocese of Portland said the auction will take place Friday at its annual Harvest Ball. The auction winner will receive the red, white and blue socks worn by the 41st President while taking part in the pregame ceremony with his wife Barbara Bush at February´s NFL championship between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. Bush, a longtime summer resident of nearby Kennebunkport, also donated an autographed photo from
On Tuesday´s The Beat with Ari Melber on MSNBC, during a discussion of attempts by Russia to influence the U.S. presidential election, former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson hyperbolically likened President Donald Trump´s manner to that of "the Soviet old playbook that Putin still seems to be using." Host Melber introduced a clip of a Russia analyst who argued that it is important for Russian President Vladimir Putin to portray the U.S. as an enemy for domestic political reasons, even though President Trump is perceived to be relatively friendly to Russia. Melber posed: "Jill, walk us through your
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) finally cracked under pressure from conservatives and populists alike and decided to extend the Senate’s workweek into Fridays and even the possibly the weekend. Conservatives and populists urged McConnell to extend the Senate’s work hours to carry out President Donald Trump’s agenda, which includes confirming judicial nominees and passing vital legislation such as a budget resolution and tax reform. Conservatives chastised the Senate’s light work week, which typically spans from Monday evening to early Thursday afternoon. GOP sources say that the Senate’s work schedule will start to mirror the average Americans’; the Senate will
Oprah Winfrey visits California´s Pelican Bay State Prison and the infamous Security Housing Unit that has been controversial for years and once earned the "supermax" prison the nickname "Skeleton Bay." She reports on conditions in the "SHU" isolation unit that critics charge constitutes torture. Winfrey´s report will be broadcast on 60 Minutes Sunday, Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m. ET and 7 p.m. PT. California, which long sent thousands of inmates to solitary confinement, is now on the leading edge of a reform movement aimed at curtailing the practice of limiting prisoners´ human contact – which many say can cause mental
Real per capita federal spending has increased more than sevenfold since fiscal 1941, which concluded on June 30 of that year — or about five months before the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. In fiscal 1941, real per capita federal spending was approximately $1,718. In fiscal 2017, which concluded at the end of September, it was about $12,239. Back in 1941, at the beginning of Franklin Delano Roosevelt´s unprecedented third presidential term, the federal government spent $13,653,000,000, according to the White House Office of Management and Budget. Although that was a massive increase from the $4,598,000,000 the federal government had spent
The Republican National Committee broke a fundraising record and raised more than $100 million during the first nine months of 2017, fueled by small-dollar donors at the center of a grassroots movement. In a statement released by RNC Chairman Ronna McDaniel, the "record-breaking fundraising has been fueled by grassroots enthusiasm for President Trump and the Republican Party," McClatchy reported. The accomplishment marked the first time the RNC raised that amount, that fast, in a non-presidential election year. September´s $10.4 million give the RNC $44.1 million in the bank with a total of $104.4 million raised this year. Across the aisle,
The security guard who was shot at the beginning of the Las Vegas gunman´s rampage has finally spoken out about his brush with death. Jesus Campos had several interviews scheduled last week, before he cancelled them all and disappeared. But he resurfaced on Tuesday, when Ellen announced that she would be interviewing him on her show. Ellen released a preview of the interview Wednesday morning, in which Campos describes the moment that gunman Stephen Paddock started shooting at him through the door of his Mandalay Bay hotel room suite. Sitting next to maintenance worker Stephen Schuck, who was also shot
Russian president Vladimir Putin was left in fits of laughter during an agricultural meeting last week after the Minister of Agriculture suggested exporting pork meat to Indonesia. During the meeting, which was held on Friday last week, Alexander Tkachov compared Russia´s exporting figures to Germany and made the suggestion as a way to increase overseas trade. Footage shows Mr Tkachov saying: ´They (Germany) send half their pork to export. Look at Germany’s numbers: five and a half million tonnes of pork produced a year, of that almost three million is exported to all countries, to China, to Indonesia, to Japan,
Hillary Clinton fell and broke her toe during her book tour in London as President Trump said he hoped she would run for president again in 2020.Clinton, who had to cancel several interviews on Monday, appeared on "The Graham Norton Show" with a protective walking boot on her right foot.“I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards,” she said.“I tried to get up and it really hurt. I’ve broken my toe,” Clinton continued, going on to say she received
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in the United States in an emotional speech Monday night after receiving the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal. “To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ´the last best hope of earth´ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of
Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." During the same interview, the 79-year-old was asked if she had a "sense of regret" for her visit to North Vietnam in 1972. The
Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again. Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton. Here´s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out: If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was the “antithesis” of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Scarborough said, “You look in Matthew, and go through the Beatitudes. Every single Beatitude. You go through Jesus’s teaching. What he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it.” He added, “None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way it seems to thumb his nose at all conventions. Including the basics of
Sen. John McCain warned against the US turning toward ´half-baked, spurious nationalism´ and jabbed at unnamed pushers of isolationist politics while at an event honoring the war hero´s contributions. (Snip) ´To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems, is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,´ he said. He added: ´We live in a land made of
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says players should stand for the national anthem, speaking out amid the furor over some players´ protests before games. "We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem. That´s an important part of our policy," Goodell said in a press conference Wednesday in New York. But Goodell said he would not commit to making a rule stating players must stand for the anthem. "Our players will state to you publicly they are not doing this in any way to be disrespectful to the flag," Goodell said. He said the league is "not looking to get into politics, but what
As National Football League owners and players’ union representatives meet in New York today and tomorrow to discuss the players’ recent demonstrations — the kneeling, linking arms or raising fists during the national anthem — they should know how the law views these protests. This will not only tell them what the league lawfully can do; it also will reveal something about American values. There has been some confusion about the law and the anthem protests. Because the First Amendment generally treats government and corporate power differently, allowing a business to impose on its workers what the government
Hillary Clinton was delayed arriving for the filming of the BBC´s Graham Norton Show due to a broken toe. The former US presidential candidate arrived for the recording of Norton´s BBC One show wearing a surgical boot. Mrs Clinton said: "I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards. "I tried to get up and it really hurt. I´ve broken my toe. I´ve received excellent care from your excellent health service." Mrs Clinton is said to be "very apologetic" after missing her slot on
Clinton Scandals: For well over a year now, the progressive left in the Democratic Party have tried hard to sell the idea that, a) Russia meddled in our election, and, b) that it was to the detriment of Hillary Clinton. After nearly a year and a half of investigating, neither appears true. What is true, and now documented, is that Hillary Clinton and her family foundation both benefited handsomely from Russian corruption. Citing federal officials and government documents, The Hill details the Russians´ nuclear-industry corruption here in the U.S., citing extensive evidence that "Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery,
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Tuesday issued a warning shot after Republican Sen. John McCain questioned "half-baked, spurious nationalism" in America´s foreign policy, saying "people have to be careful because at some point I fight back." McCain, a former Navy pilot who spent 5½ years in a Vietnam prisoner of war camp and is battling brain cancer, offered a simple response to Trump: "I have faced tougher adversaries." Trump said in a radio interview with WMAL in Washington, "I´m being very, very nice but at some point I fight back and it won´t be pretty." He bemoaned McCain´s decisive
Sen. John McCain exploded on Fox News’ Peter Doocy on Wednesday for asking him if he would oppose everything that President Trump asks him to do. Doocy asked Sen. McCain if his relationship with the president is “so frayed” that McCain would “not support anything that he comes to you and asks for?” McCain snapped, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb?” “My job as a United States senator — you mean I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement?” McCain said incredulously.
