The Late Show host Stephen Colbert roasted Eric Trump on Wednesday night, dubbing him the “dullest knife” in the Republican drawer after the first son told Fox & Friends that “95 percent” of people were behind his dad. “My father is in there, and he’s fighting every single day. And he has to fight against the media,” the Trump son said. “He has to fight against these lunatics. And guys, I’m telling you, 95 percent of this country is behind him in this message.” After playing the clip of Eric’s words, Colbert then did his best and somewhat brutal impression of the president’s son, complete with funny teeth and a distracted monologue. “Yeah, 95, I’m telling ya,” Colbert as Eric said drawing laughs and applause from his audience. “95 percent is behind my dad, okay,” he continued on. “Okay, you better check my math, okay, he lost the popular Continue reading "Stephen Colbert Brutally Roasts Eric Trump: ‘Dullest Knife in the Republican Drawer’"

The Late Show opened up on Wednesday night with a mock ad poking fun at CNN’s live debate draw event. The actual CNN event, scheduled for Thursday night, will decide the line-up for two nights of live debates and will air during a special episode of Anderson Cooper. After showing an ad calling the live draw an “unprecedented event,” The Late Show writers took liberties with an ad of their own suggesting ideas for a dramatic, pre-draw special with some unusual ways to decide the line-ups. Calling it the “Draw Draw,” the announcer opened by saying the event will show “how we draw for the draw.” The screen then flashed to Wolf Blitzer decked out only in tighty-whities and slathered in honey. “Whoever sticks to his chest is on the first night, on his ass the second,” the announcer declared. Next up was Chris Cuomo sitting on eggs, Continue reading "The Late Show Pokes Fun at CNN’s Live Debate Drawing Hype"

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham tonight covered President Donald Trump‘s rally and how a “small section of the crowd” was chanting “Send her back!” when POTUS was going off on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. The chant was roundly condemned tonight, including from some pundits who regularly criticize Omar. Ingraham tonight went off on the media for pouncing and “fram[ing] the entire rally around this one section of the crowd’s reaction.” Ingraham said it’s just like how the press went after Trump supporters for “lock her up” chants, asking, “Are the media and the Democrats missing how many Americans feel about what they’re told about the way they should think from these four elected officials?” Dan Bongino said there’s a clear “double standard” at play. He called it “straight-up asinine” to accuse Trump of racism, but did say at one point, “Some of the tweets could be worded differently Continue reading "Laura Ingraham Reacts to ‘Send Her Back’ by Ripping the Media: ‘Conjured-Up Outrage’ Just Like With ‘Lock Her Up’"

A CNN panel went off the rails after Kayleigh McEnany slammed Rep.Ilhan Omar for “not condemning al-Qaeda” and suggested that if she “hates’ the country, she should leave. McEnany is the National Press Secretary for Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign. Things started to get heated on Wednesday night’s Cuomo Primetime after former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm defended the female members of Congress, including Omar, who have been targeted by Trump in recent comments. “It is un-American to call out these women and say send them back,” Granholm said, echoing the words chanted at Trump’s rally just hours before. “It is — what is this country?” McEnany said that was “absurd.” “It’s un-American because they are American,” Granholm pressed on. “They are Americans. It’s un-American to say send them back.” Then after some back and forth, McEnany asked Granholm — framing it by saying she had been asked Continue reading "CNN Panel Goes Off the Rails: ‘How Dare You Tell an American Citizen They Must Go Away!’"

CNN Senior Political Analyst and former Nixon advisor David Gergen said President Donald Trump‘s recent comments — including his behavior at Wednesday nights rally in North Carolina when “Send her back” chants broke out —  manage to “outdo”  Richard Nixon in “repulsiveness.” Gergen’s comments were prompted by host Anderson Cooper‘s question about his thoughts on Trump standing by while his rally crowd chanted “send her back.” The chant, which followed Trump ripping into a sitting member of Congress, was aimed at Rep. Ilhan Omar. “David, I mean, you know, there have been past president held views but in private, it is — I’m wondering as somebody that worked for Democratic and Republican administrations, what is it like to see the president on that stage tonight encouraging or at least standing by and allowing the ‘send her home’ chant to grow?” Cooper asked. Gergen said it Continue reading "CNN’s David Gergen Slams Trump After ‘Send Her Back’ Rally Chant: ‘When You Outdo Nixon in Repulsiveness…’"

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes was not covering all of President Donald Trump‘s speech live, but the moment when Trump supporters erupted in chants of “SEND HER BACK!” about Ilhan Omar appalled the entire panel. Hayed showed the clip before emphasizing, “That’s a crowd of Americans being incited by the American president to chant ‘send her back’ against an American congresswoman.” “It’s a sad moment for the country,” MSNBC political analyst Zerlina Maxwell said, “but it’s not surprising in any way… What Donald Trump has done is normalize racism, that has been true going back to birtherism, and he makes it okay again to be overtly racist in public without any fear that there will be any societal repercussions whatsoever. And that is not something that I am willing to, you know, sit around and be silent about.” Former assistant U.S. attorney Maya Wiley said “it’s more Continue reading "MSNBC Panel Trashes ‘Send Her Back’ Trump Rally Chants: ‘More Than Sad… It’s Dangerous’"

President Donald Trump spared no punches during a rally in North Carolina on Wednesday, railing against the “hate-filled extremists” and insisting if they don’t like America “let ’em leave.” During the rally, Trump ran down a laundry list of comments he claimed were made by members of the so-called ‘Squad’ including freshmen Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib.  At one point, his remarks prompted a chant of “Send her back.” “Their comments are helping fuel the rise of a dangerous, militant hard left, but that’s okay because we are going to win this election like nobody’s ever seen,” Trump told his supporters, eliciting cheers. Then, he said this: “Tonight I have a suggestion for the hate-filled extremists who are constantly trying to tear our country down. They never have anything good to say. That’s why I say, hey, if they don’t like Continue reading "Trump at Rally: If ‘Hate-Filled Extremists’ Trying to ‘Tear Our Country Down’ Don’t Like It, ‘Let ‘Em Leave’"

The audience at a Trump rally in North Carolina chanted “send her back” as President Donald Trump railed against freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar on Wednesday. The chant came during a lengthy screed during which Trump lashed out at the so-called “squad” of four Congresswomen, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib. “These left-wing ideologues see our nation as a force of evil,” Trump told the crowd of supporters. “The way they speak so badly of our country…You have to look at some of their recent comments which are never talked about.” “When you see the four congresswomen, oh isn’t that lovely?” he said, drawing boos. “I will give you a couple. I have had pages and pages but we don’t want to bore you or go too long. We have to give a couple. That’s the great thing about live television.

Did Ilhan Omar Marry Her Brother? President Donald Trump was asked on Wednesday night about whether Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) should be investigated for possibly marrying her brother, bringing a scandalous rumor from the congresswoman’s home state onto the national stage. In response to the question — from a reporter at OANN, a right wing network best known for pushing conspiracies — Trump said: “There’s a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother. I know nothing about it. I hear she was married to her brother. You’re asking me a question about it. I don’t know, but I’m sure that somebody will be looking at that.”

Did Omar actually marry her brother? Rumors that she did so have circulated since 2016 — when Omar became the first Somali-American elected to the Minnesota state House of Representatives — and can be traced by to an allegation on a Somali blog Continue reading "Trump Floats Rumor That Ilhan Omar Married Her Brother.

President Donald Trump kicked things off at his North Carolina rally tonight by touting the House vote late this afternoon against the resolution to impeach him. “I just heard that the United States House of Representatives has overwhelmingly voted to kill the most ridiculous project I’ve ever been involved in: the resolution —— how stupid is that —— on impeachment,” Trump said. “I want to thank those Democrats,” he continued, “because many of them voted for us. The vote was a totally lopsided 332-95-1.” Trump added, “They want to try and impeach. It’s a disgrace. So now we have that behind us.” Some House Democrats made it clear today this isn’t over yet.

The House of Representatives voted to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in criminal contempt Wednesday afternoon. The 230-to-198  vote comes after both Barr and Ross failed to comply with subpoenas calling for documents to related the Trump administration’s attempt to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. The White House responded to the vote by calling it “ridiculous” and insisting that House Democrats have “no right” to the documents. “Yet another lawless attempt to harass the president and his administration,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement sent out to the press. She added: “House Democrats know they have no legal right to these documents, but their shameful and cynical politics know no bounds.”

Jon Stewart and 9/11 first responder John Feal joined Fox News’ Bret Baier tonight to react to the latest developments concerning the legislation to reauthorize the 9/11 victims compensation fund. Senator Rand Paul blocked the Senate from approving the legislation through unanimous consent, saying, “It has long been my feeling that we need to address our massive debt in this country. Any new program that’s going to have the longevity of 70, 80 years should be offset by cutting spending that’s less valuable.” The Washington Post reports that Senator Mike Lee has also “placed a hold on the legislation”:
A spokesman for Lee said the senator “fully expects the 9/11 compensation bill to pass before the August recess and he is seeking a vote to ensure the fund has the proper oversight in place to prevent fraud and abuse.”
Stewart and Feal have been part of a large Continue reading "Jon Stewart, 9/11 First Responder John Feal Blast Rand Paul, Mike Lee: ‘Fiscal Responsibility Virtue Signaling’"

House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Mike Quigley told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday that President Donald Trump‘s continued squabble with the ‘Squad’ makes him “extraordinarily” concerned about the president’s mental health. Blitzer asked the Congressman about Trump’s ongoing feud with four freshmen Congresswomen — namely Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley also known as ‘The Squad’ —  during an interview from Capitol Hill. “[Trump] says that he is enjoying the fight with these Progressive freshmen Democrats, and he says that your party is moving so far to the left that you are about to fall off of the cliff. How do you respond?” Blitzer asked. Quigley replied that Trump is a “president who has divided this country and rather than unite it.” He added: “This is not how you lead. You build coalitions to get something done.” Then, referring to Continue reading "Dem Rep. Sounds Off Trump’s Fight With ‘Squad’: I’m ‘Extraordinarily Concerned’ About His Mental Health"

First company to fail GDPR compliance shares tips on prepping for US privacy regs

Almost exactly one year ago, Benoit Grouchko, co-founder and CEO of Paris-based Teemo, a technology company that specializes in location data, opened a letter from French regulators that shook him to his core: Teemo had just become the first company to get busted under the European Union’s Global Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR. 

“It was by far the hardest time in our company because it was such an intense crisis,” Grouchko says. “We were very thoughtful about our strategy in becoming GDPR compliant. We worked with lawyers and we wanted to make sure we had done everything the right way.” 

Obviously, that wasn’t the case. 

Roughly two months later, however, Teemo became the first company to meet GDPR compliance. It has since expanded its operations to the U.S., where regulation is imminent. California’s Consumer Privacy Act, for instance, goes into effect on January 1, and affects Continue reading "First company to fail GDPR compliance shares tips on prepping for US privacy regs"
