Scaramucci Post Slammed Over Twitter Poll on How Many Jews Died in the Holocaust

The Scaramucci Post is facing a lot of questions today after they asked the Twitterverse to decide on how many Jewish people died as a result of the Holocaust. The new online media venture from former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci posted a peculiar Twitter poll on Tuesday, asking what was the result of Adolf Hitler‘s Final Solution. The poll is already getting a lot of reactions, and this should give you an idea of what the reception has been like:

That Time Carrie Fisher Sent a Cow Tongue to Producer Who Sexually Harassed Her Friend

As Harvey Weinstein‘s sexual harassment controversy continues to rock Hollywood, the scandal has caused an old story about Carrie Fisher to enter the spotlight. Screenwriter Heather Ross, who was friends with the late actress, recently gave a radio interview where she talked about how she was sexually abused once by an unnamed film producer. Ross said she met the producer in his car to discuss a project years ago, and she had to force him off herself after he climbed over and pinned her to her seat. Ross was able to get away, but she recounted how the producer told her, “You’ll never make a movie in my town and get the F out of my car.” After Fisher learned about what happened, the Star Wars icon got revenge on Ross’ behalf by sending the producer a gross surprise:
“About two weeks later, she sent me a Continue reading "That Time Carrie Fisher Sent a Cow Tongue to Producer Who Sexually Harassed Her Friend"

Ryan Lizza: Trump Just ‘Makes Sh*t Up’

New Yorker writer Ryan Lizza ended up in a contentious debate on Monday night when he condemned President Trump over his latest bogus remarks about Barack Obama. Lizza was part of a CNN panel discussion––flagged earlier by TheWrap media editor and Mediaite alum Jon Levine––about whether Trump declined to talk about the fallen soldiers in Niger before because it might’ve been pertinent to sensitive military matters. Former Trump communications director Jason Miller was on to defend the president’s remarks, though Lizza was not in the mood for any justifications of Trump’s constant, demonstrably-untrue statements:
“This president, on a daily basis, he just makes sh*t up. He lies. Why is that? Why is he so different from previous presidents, that just, when he gets a question like that from a journalist, his immediate thing is just to make something up, and then when he’s presented with the facts, he just Continue reading "Ryan Lizza: Trump Just ‘Makes Sh*t Up’"

Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich Blasts ‘Soulless Coward’ Trump Over Remarks on Obama, Military Families

Gregg Popovich went all in on Monday as he tore into President Trump and his false claim that Barack Obama and other past presidents never called the families of fallen military operatives. Popovich isn’t shy about his political opinions, having called Trump an embarrassment and a danger to America’s crucial institutions earlier this year. Today, after the president held his press conference with Mitch McConnell, the San Antonio Spurs coach called The Nation and offered a full-throttled denouncement of Trump:
“This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner–and to lie about how previous Presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers–is as low as it gets. We have a pathological liar in the White House: unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically Continue reading "Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich Blasts ‘Soulless Coward’ Trump Over Remarks on Obama, Military Families"

Josh Earnest Knocks Trump’s Remarks On Obama: ‘Doesn’t Seem to Understand’ Responsibility of the Office

Former White House press secretary Josh Earnest gave an interview on MSNBC on Monday night, and he defended his old boss after President Trump said that Barack Obama never called to offer sympathy to grieving military families. Chris Hayes started things off by asking for Earnest’s response to a White House statement about how Trump was just “stating a fact” earlier today. Earnest said the statement parses the president’s actual remarks, and argued that Trump has not yet realized the responsibility he carries for the lives of the men and women serving the country:
“The thing that’s painfully obvious about President Trump’s remarks today is that he doesn’t seem to understand, or at least feel the weight, of the responsibility that he has as our Commander in Chief. If he just spent half of the time that he dedicates to trying to convince the public he cares for our troops, Continue reading "Josh Earnest Knocks Trump’s Remarks On Obama: ‘Doesn’t Seem to Understand’ Responsibility of the Office"

Fmr Obama Spokesman Spars With Fox News’ John Roberts for Asking Trump ‘Stupid, Clickbait’ NFL Question

Former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor is fighting with John Roberts tonight after the Fox News White House correspondent asked President Trump a question about Hillary Clinton today. During the president’s joint press conference with Mitch McConnell, Roberts brought up a recent interview where Clinton defended NFL anthem kneelers and their right to express their beliefs. Trump responded by reiterating his hope that Clinton runs for president again, and he also said it was that sort of “thinking” which cost Clinton the presidency. It was not the only question Roberts asked, but Vietor took notice of the Clinton one, and he had a few objections about this question coming up instead of more pressing political topics:
