Former White House communications director Hope Hicks leaves the hearing room during a break at a closed-door interview with the House Judiciary Committee June 19, 2019 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Former White House communications director Hope Hicks testified in a closed-door hearing this week before the House Judiciary committee, and the transcript of that meeting was released by the committee on Thursday. In that hearing, as CNN’s Abby Phillip discovered and shared on Twitter, Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler repeatedly referred to Hicks as “Ms. Lewandowski,” the last name of former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, with whom Hicks has been romantically linked and about whom many of the committee’s questions inquired. Just to be clear, it wasn’t unclear that they were speaking with Hope Hicks. Here she is stating her name for the record in response to Rep. Nadler.
Hicks let it go the first time, but as you can see

WH Correspondents Celebrate 100+ Days Without a Press Briefing By Throwing Sarah Sanders a Goodbye Party

Some White House reporters are apparently planning to host goodbye drinks for departing White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. HuffPost reports that Politico’s Anita Kumar and DailyMail’s Francesca Chambers have invited reporters and Donald Trump staffers to come to “farewell drinks” for Sanders at a swanky D.C. restaurant on June 24. Kumar, who sent the email announcing the event, described the drinks to HuffPost as a “casual gathering for reporters who have engaged with Sarah, many of whom have done so for years.” Kumar is a board member of the White House Correspondents’ Association and Chambers is the group’s treasurer. WHCA President Olivier Knox told HuffPost his group is not involved in the event. The sendoff is in spite of the fact that Sanders admitted to Special Counsel Robert Mueller she gave baseless information to reporters. Sanders has also not held a public press briefing in 101 days.

After a briefing in the White House Situation Room, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was unequivocal. Though the possibility was floated earlier Thursday by President Donald Trump that Iran shooting down a U.S. drone over international waters was a “loose and stupid” mistake, the Speaker believes the strike was no accident. “Are you personally convinced, based on the intelligence you’ve seen, that this was an Iranian attack on an American asset operating legally in international airspace?” A reporter asked Pelosi on Capitol Hill. “Yes,” the Speaker said. Though she is convinced Iran took hostile action, Pelosi adopted a cautious posture. “However we go forward from here has to be strategic, and smart, and in close alliance with our allies,” Pelosi said. “We have common interests in the region. We know that the high tension wires are up there. And we must do everything we can not to escalate Continue reading "Pelosi Dismisses Trump’s Suggestion Iran Strike Was Accidental, But Urges Caution: We Must ‘Not Escalate’"

If you missed the first few Cannes Nightcap editions, no worries—they’re right here and here and here.

As the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity lurches toward its conclusion tomorrow, things have been getting a bit... tense. Environmental activists have been busy trying to disrupt the proceedings (even though #disruption has a Cannes-five-years-ago feel to it). A group called Extinction Rebellion stormed Facebook Beach on Thursday—jumping off a raft and then swimming ashore—but police, on high alert, were quick to crack down.

Ad Age’s Lindsay Rittenhouse, reporting from the scene at 5:20 p.m. Cannes time, witnessed about 20 protestors facing off against 15 police. “The police won’t talk to me,” she told us as it was happening, “and they won’t let the protestors talk to me. A protestor—a red-haired kid—just tried talking to me and the police pushed him back.” Ultimately a group of about 20 Extinction Rebellion activists Continue reading "Storming Facebook Beach, #FreeDroga, story-vaping: Cannes Nightcap Day Four"

L’Oreal SA named the first female president of its flagship cosmetics label, elevating Delphine Viguier-Hovasse to the top job at the world’s biggest beauty brand. Viguier-Hovasse, who has been running the company’s Garnier unit, succeeds Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou as head of L’Oreal Paris. Angeloglou is taking on a new role with LVMH‘s Louis Vuitton, leading strategic missions in fashion and leather. The move comes as L’Oreal wrestles with sluggish growth in its consumer products division, whose drugstore brands have underperformed the units selling high-end perfumes and premium skin care. L’Oreal Paris, which makes products such as True Match foundation and Revitalift wrinkle creams, is the cosmetics giant’s founding division. Viguier-Hovasse will report to Alexis Perakis-Valat, president of L’Oreal’s consumer products division, the company said in a statement. Even as lagging U.S. consumption and a rising interest in niche competitors dragged down growth for mass-market brands, L’Oreal Paris grew faster than Continue reading "L’Oréal names first female president of biggest beauty brand"

MSNBC Contributor Painfully Confuses Rep. Joaquin Castro With Twin, 2020 Candidate Julian Castro

MSNBC contributor Noah Rothman stumbled into an awkward moment after he confused Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) for 2020 presidential candidate and his identical twin Julián Castro. Rothman, a Commentary magazine editor, asked Joaquin Castro on Morning Joe about his stance on Iran relations discussed during a Fox News town hall (which was held with Julián Castro, not Joaquin and apparently unbeknownst to Rothman). “Well, the first thing is, I have to correct you,” the lawmaker said. “The person who did the Fox News town hall was my brother, Julián, who is running for president. I’m here in the Congress.” Rothman was clearly embarrassed and apologized. “That is a truly awful confusion on my part. But I’m sure it’s not the first time this happened,” Rothman said. Castro was seemingly okay with the mixup, laughing while Rothman was apologizing. Rothman later apologized again on Twitter.

WATCH: Joe Biden Talked Civility With Segregationists While Campaigning for Doug Jones

Former Vice President and current Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden spoke about his friendship and civility with segregationist former Senator James Eastland while campaigning for Doug Jones in 2017, even recalling how Eastland would call him “son” in a southern drawl. Biden is under fire for recent comments in which he mused about the “civility” he once enjoyed with the likes of Eastland, remarks that were not caught on video. But Biden has hit on this theme before. For example, Biden name-checked Eastland and other segregationists in his farewell Senate speech in 2009, of whom he said, “I never thought I’d develop deep personal relationships with men whose position played an extremely large part in my desire to come to the Senate in the first place to change what they believed in.” During that speech, he also imitated Eastland’s accent and spoke warmly of his friendship with late Senator Continue reading "WATCH: Joe Biden Talked Civility With Segregationists While Campaigning for Doug Jones"

Roy Moore is Running for Senate Again and Nobody Knows Why

Roy Moore, whose 2017 Senate campaign crumbled amidst allegations of sexual assault against minors, has decided to give a Senate run another go.

“Yes, I will run for the United States Senate in 2020,” Moore told reporters Thursday, adding,  “Can I win? Yes, I can. Not only can I, they know I can.”

Those on the left and the right have called out the absurdity of this idea:

This is pure fake news. I can assure everyone that by running, Roy Moore is going against my father and he’s doing a disservice to all conservatives across the country in the process. https://t.co/pjfDKfoIO0

Newspaper Accuses NBC News of Asking ‘Highly Inappropriate Questions’ For Report on Their Trump Coverage

Epoch Times Accuses NBC News of Inappropriate Questions The Epoch Times, a multi-language newspaper founded by a group of Chinese-Americans associated with the “spiritual group” Falun Gong, printed an open letter to NBC News on Thursday, objecting questions being asked by their reporters. Characterizing NBC’s questions as “inappropriate” and unduly focused on the religious practices of Epoch employees, the letter has garnered some attention on social media. The story NBC is writing, according to this public statement from The Epoch Times, is about the way in which Epoch covers President Donald Trump. As they characterize it, NBC is trying to “discredit” the website because it is insufficiently critical of the president. “The plain truth is that because The Epoch Times’ coverage of Trump differs from that of NBC, two reporters have sought to hunt for an agenda that would discredit us,” wrote publisher Stephen Gregory on Thursday. The public complaint begins with the explanation that NBC’s Continue reading "Newspaper Accuses NBC News of Asking ‘Highly Inappropriate Questions’ For Report on Their Trump Coverage"

9/11 First Responder in Hospice Makes Heartwrenching Plea for Funds: Congress, ‘Do the Right Thing’

The retired NYPD detective who gave a heartwrenching testimony before Congress last week for the 9/11 Fund appeared on Shepard Smith Reporting Thursday to make one more plea for Congress to renew the bill. Authorities assured Luis Alvarez and many other first responders that the air surrounding the debris of 9/11 while they dug through piles for victims had been safe, but we now know that air was filled with toxic dust. Eighteen years after the attacks and 68 rounds of chemo later, doctors told Alvarez there is nothing else they can do for his stage 4 cancer, and he is now in hospice care. “We did the right thing when we went down there. Now it’s the government’s turn to do the right thing by us,” Alvarez said Thursday on Fox News. The retired detective told Shepard Smith that he was comfortable and at peace, and not in a Continue reading "9/11 First Responder in Hospice Makes Heartwrenching Plea for Funds: Congress, ‘Do the Right Thing’"

No stranger to the unconventional, REI is at it again: The outdoors retailer is discontinuing its print mail-order catalog and debuting a magazine. Called Uncommon Path, the print publication will run on a quarterly basis and include stories focused on the outdoors. Kent, Washington-based REI is partnering with Hearst Magazines on the project, which will be staffed by a team of roughly six in-house REI employees as well as a collection of freelancers and Hearst workers. “What this magazine represents is how we are trying to deliver some of our own content and environmental journalism to help people understand issues around the outdoors better,” says Paolo Mottola, editorial director.  He concedes that print journalism is not exactly on the upswing, but predicts that the singular outdoors-focus of Uncommon Path should help REI succeed. Mottolo says the magazine is another vehicle to deliver REI content to consumers, and that it will Continue reading "REI shelves catalog for print magazine"
