“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.
“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added.
A second source confirmed the fireworks.
“The meeting took place in a big board room and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said.
“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said."
Hamilton Actor/Lecturer Brandon Victor Dixon is Sexual Predator
"After the post-show curtain speech delivered at Vice-President-elect Mike Pence Friday night, many conservatives thought a boycott of the ground-breaking musical would be a great idea. It’s a natural reaction to what many non-Hillary-voters see as an insulting message delivered by the Hamilton cast that they are not welcome and are worthy of a condescending lecture if they show up at the theatre.
...the show’s creator has been surprisingly mum about the incident on his very active Twitter feed. He delivered this message of support tagged with the all important “don’t stop buying tickets” coda:
Why has the usually verbose and active writer/composer/actor been somewhat mum about his play being thrust into the post-election hysteria? To paraphrase Michael Jordan, “Republicans buy tickets too.”
And this isn’t just about high-price theatre tickets. You see, Lin-Manuel Miranda, the savant-like genius behind Hamilton is set to open a brand new animated film this week. A Disney film. Moana is due December 2.
"... Donations to the Clinton Foundation nose-dived last year amid Hillary Clinton’s presidential run, pay-to-play allegations, internal strife and a black mark from a charity watchdog.
Contributions fell by 37 percent to $108 million, down from $172 million in 2014, according to the group’s latest tax filings.
The cash plummeted as Hillary Clinton left the nonprofit in April 2015 after announcing her ill-fated candidacy. The foundation became a major issue in the race, with Donald Trump vowing to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate it.
The Clintons’ earnings on the speaking circuit took a big hit in 2015, too:
Not only did contributions drop, but so did revenue the Clintons brought in from speeches. That income fell to $357,500 from $3.6 million in 2014."
...Judge Brown then handed down the maximum sentence of ten years for each of the three charges, counts two and three will run consecutively and count four will be served concurrently for a total of 20 years in prison.
Brown said her decision to hand down the maximum sentence was based on the evidence presented, which she says, “Points out a pattern of a predator that is a danger to society.”
