James Comey’s Book Hits No. 1 on Amazon After Trump’s Scathing Tweets, And It’s Not Even Published

President Donald Trump is truly making book sales great again. The commander in chief sent yet another one of his least favorite people soaring to the top of the best sellers lists overnight — all thanks to his incessant tweeting. Former FBI Director James Comey’s book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, climbed from No. 15 on Amazon’s best sellers list Saturday to the No. 1 spot by Sunday afternoon. The book will detail Comey’s time in office, as well as his interactions with the president, ultimately culminating with his historic firing amid an ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. All orders for the book are currently pre-sale, since it’s set for release on April 17. In other words, Comey is already a bestselling author, and his book hasn’t even been published yet.

SNL Ridicules Betsy DeVos’ 60 Minutes Trainwreck: Behind the Scenes I Am ‘Much Worse’

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos — or, at least Kate McKinnon’s uncanny impersonation of her — was offered a shot at redemption on Saturday Night Live following her recently botched interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes. McKinnon played DeVos on the show’s latest episode, appearing on “Weekend Update” to clear up her stance on several issues. The SNL version of the education secretary addressed her views on charter and public schools, as well as arguably being one of the most hated cabinet appointees in the Trump administration. “I don’t like to think of things in terms of school,” the mock-DeVos said, echoing a statement the secretary made on 60 Minutes. “It should be up to the states. In Wyoming, for example, where there are many potential grizzlies, there should be a school for bears. In Louisiana, crocodile crossing guards. In North Carolina, stop being trans, and that’s what’s best for them! That’s Continue reading "SNL Ridicules Betsy DeVos’ 60 Minutes Trainwreck: Behind the Scenes I Am ‘Much Worse’"

Cambridge Analytica Whistleblower Suspended By Facebook

Christopher Wylie, the 27-year-old whistleblower who recently revealed how the controversial firm Cambridge Analytica used harvested Facebook profiles for the 2016 presidential election, said he was suspended from the social media platform in a tweet on Saturday morning. The data scientist blasted the social media platform on Twitter, posting a screenshot of a message he received from Facebook, indicating his account had been removed from the site. “Suspended by @Facebook. For blowing the whistle. On something they have known for 2 years,” Wylie wrote.

Watch Guardian’s Stunning Interview With Cambridge Analytica Whistleblower: ‘A Grossly Unethical Experiment’

A 27-year-old data scientist named Christopher Wylie revealed extraordinary information about his time working for Cambridge Analytica in an interview with The Guardian published Saturday. The controversial company harvested 50 million Facebook users’ personal information in an attempt to “build a psychological profile of each voter” throughout the United States, Wylie said. Among other charges, the whistleblower said the company was capable of pulling users’ private information without their consent, including status updates and direct messages. He also directly contradicted statements made by Alexander Nix, the chief executive of Cambridge Analytica’s parent company SCL Group, who denied the use of Facebook data in a testimony before Parliament. “That’s just fundamentally not true because we spent a million dollars harvesting tens of millions of Facebook profiles, and those profiles were used as the basis of the algorithms that became the foundation of Cambridge Analytica,” Wylie said. “The company was founded Continue reading "Watch Guardian’s Stunning Interview With Cambridge Analytica Whistleblower: ‘A Grossly Unethical Experiment’"

Trump Says ‘Mueller Probe Should Never Have Been Started’ in Scathing Tweets After McCabe Firing

President Donald Trump unleashed a series of scathing tweets on Saturday, blasting Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation and Andrew McCabe, the former deputy director of the FBI. The president’s tweets were unusual — even for him — in that they arrived the same day his personal lawyer said the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election should come to an end, before walking that statement back shortly after. “The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime,” the president tweeted Saturday night. “It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!”

St. Patrick’s Day is in full effect on the streets of Boston. Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker was spotted in a local bar downing tequila shots during the holiday celebration. Video footage posted to Twitter on Saturday shows the governor knocking back a shot and quickly biting into a slice of lime right after — as any professional drinker does with tequila. Twitter user Becca Ruesch posted a video of Baker to the social media platform – which you can watch above – writing, “This just in: Charlie Baker, the Governor of Massachusetts, is taking shots with the locals in Southie #Boston.” Baker appeared to celebrate the festivities throughout Saturday, posting photos from the parade to Twitter with the caption, “From Dot Continue reading "WATCH: Massachusetts Governor Takes Tequila Shots With Boston Locals on St. Patrick’s Day"

CNN Analyst Suggests Stormy Daniels ‘Could Just Take a Page out of The Art of the Deal’ and File Bankruptcy

President Donald Trump’s personal team of lawyers are desperate to gag porn star Stormy Daniels — going so far as to publicly threaten a $20 million lawsuit against her. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is currently basking in the national attention she’s received over her alleged affair with Trump in 2006. Her lawyer, who said the porn star has been physically threatened to remain silent, has been on a media tour in recent days, promising the full story of the affair will be told in an interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes later this month. Despite her newfound notoriety and decades in the adult entertainment industry, Clifford isn’t exactly a one-percenter like Trump. Her biggest break was a small role in the 2005 film 40-Year-Old Virgin, and she was only initially paid $130,000 not to mention anything she may or may not have done with the future Continue reading "CNN Analyst Suggests Stormy Daniels ‘Could Just Take a Page out of The Art of the Deal’ and File Bankruptcy"
