Mike Huckabee jokes about sharing spotlight with daughter Sarah: ‘I don’t mind sharing some of the public scorn’

Former Governor of Arkansas and Fox News contributor Mike Huckabee was candid in a new episode of Fox Nation‘s “Quiz Show,” where he discussed his famous daughter, and favorite hobbies, as he squared off against host Tom Shillue on TV show trivia.

QUIZ SHOW MUST-SEE MOMENTS

“Most of the time I’m just known as Sarah’s dad,” said Huckabee, cutting short his introduction.

Asked how he felt with his new title, Huckabee said he didn’t mind taking a back seat to his daughter, who served as the White House press secretary under Trump before leaving her post in June.

“It’s fine,” he said, “I don’t mind sharing some of the public scorn with my daughter.”

TOM SHILLUE TRIES TO STUMP DR. OZ, FAILS

At one point in the episode, Huckabee took a jab at 2020 Democrat Joe Biden, referencing a recent gaffe made by the former vice president during a Democratic presidential primary debate last month.

Huckabee joked that if he didn’t perform well on the quiz show, he’d make sure his agent never booked him on the show again — and Shillue granted him permission to “call his direct line” if that were the case.

“Is it Joe-3-0-3-3-0…how do I reach you Tom,” Huckabee responded satirically, referring to Biden’s viral call for supporters to visit “Joe 30330”  as the debate was coming to an end.

HUCKABEE: OUR VALUES ARE COLLAPSING AS A COUNTRY

Later in the segment, Shillue tested the former governor on shows including “Saved By The Bell,” “South Park,” and “The Andy Griffith Show.” Ultimately, Huckabee performed incredibly well, answering all but one of the Emmy nominated show themed questions correctly.

“I didn’t pay attention,” Huckabee said when he scored one of the eight questions incorrectly. “It’s the same problem I had in school as a kid…I just didn’t pay attention.”

Promoting his new book “Make The Most of Your Life: Rare Medium or Well Done,” Huckabee took the “Emmy” themed trivia one step further.

Rare, Medium or Done Well

“I’ve made the most of my life today by coming and doing this quiz,” he joke.  “I’ve never in my 64 years had such a moment as this and I just want to thank all the little people who made it possible for me to be here to get my own Emmy for this performance.”

New York Times slammed as ‘disgusting’ for downplaying Ed Buck as ‘small time’ Democratic donor

The New York Times caught flak on Friday for referring to Ed Buck as a “small-time Democratic donor” despite his long history of giving big bucks to liberal politicians.

Buck, who was hit with a federal charge on Thursday in the 2017 drug overdose death of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore, has donated tens of thousands of dollars to California candidates. According to federal records, Buck also contributed more than $500,000 to Democratic groups, including $1,500 to the Obama presidential campaign and $2,950 to the Hillary Clinton campaign – but this fell into the category of “small-time,” according to The Times.

DEMOCRATIC MEGADONOR ED BUCK NOW FACING ALLEGATIONS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING, REVENGE PORN

“Two men died in the home of Ed Buck, a small-time Democratic donor and political activist. Now federal prosecutors say they have detailed a disturbing pattern in which he exchanged drugs and money for sexual favors, citing at least 11 victims,” the paper’s verified political account tweeted.

Political satirist and “No Things Considered” host Tim Young questioned why the paper would diminish Buck’s contributions to the Democratic Party.

“Is the New York Times being sassy and sarcastic with their Twitter now or are they pushing a blatantly false narrative? He’s a mega-millionaire who lives in West Hollywood who donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democrats in the last few years alone,” Young told Fox News.

“There is nothing even remotely small-time about those numbers,” Young added.

CLINTON, OBAMA SILENT ON ED BUCK DONATIONS

The Gray Lady also called Buck a “small-time Democratic donor” in the lead of a story about him facing federal charges.

The New York Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Buck, 65, was charged with distributing methamphetamine resulting in Moore’s death. He would face a minimum of 20 years in prison if convicted.

Buck was charged earlier this week with causing the overdose of another man who escaped from his West Hollywood home this month. The man escaped the apartment and reportedly called for help at a nearby gas station.

NY TIMES SPARKS FUROR WITH TWEET DESCRIBING ALLEGED KAVANAUGH BEHAVIOR AS ‘HARMLESS FUN’

A third man, Timothy Dean, 55, died of an overdose in Buck’s home this past January. Prosecutors said Buck provided drugs to several men over the years after bringing them to his home. They described the political donor as someone who preyed on the homeless and drug addicts.

“The real threat of bias in the media is how pervasive it has become. Black men have died at the hands of this predator and the priority for The New York Times is covering for their preferred political party,” conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News. “Disgusting.”

This is the third time The Times has made news with a tweet in recent days. Under its “New York Times Opinion” Twitter banner, the paper issued an apology late Saturday, saying it had deleted an “offensive” message promoting a controversial, now-revised article that made allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“We deleted a previous tweet regarding this article,” The Times’ Opinion message said. “It was offensive, and we apologize.”

The original Times tweet graphically described an obscene act that Kavanaugh is accused of having done during his college years. The tweet then said the act “may seem like harmless fun.”

The New York Times also caused an uproar last week with a now-deleted tweet and now-updated story that originally said “airplanes,” not terrorists, were responsible for the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center/

The 9/11 anniversary message was immediately met with harsh criticism and was swiftly deleted.

Jim Breslo: Why should government get involved in health care for people who don’t need assistance?

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6085843321001_6085837070001-vs Jim Breslo: Why should government get involved in health care for people who don’t need assistance? Jim Breslo fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/opinion fox-news/health fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 7e5eadfe-d628-5eee-9e5a-ddcdd47c26f8

For the third straight time, the Democratic presidential debate in Houston led with a discussion of health care. As Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., put it: “Every one of my colleagues on this stage believes in universal health care.”

Booker’s statement prompts this question: Why should government get involved in health care for Americans who do not require government assistance?

Most Americans believe the government should provide a “safety net” for the poor. It does this with assistance such as food stamps. However, you do not hear anyone calling for an expansion of food stamps to cover all Americans regardless of whether they are rich or poor. So why is that the case with health care?

HOW MUCH WOULD ‘MEDICARE FOR ALL’ COST? DEMOCRATS’ HEALTH CARE PLAN EXPLAINED

The federal government, through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) – more commonly known as food stamps – provides assistance to low-income people. The government does not make the food or control the price of food. It does not dictate what foods people should buy. And the government provides absolutely no food assistance to the majority of American households.

This is a “safety net.” It is designed to make sure the poorest among us have food on their table.

There seems to be broad agreement that food stamps are a good way to address the nutritional needs of our poor. In health care, we have something similar. It is called Medicaid. It provides funding for medical services for low-income and disabled people.

We also have Medicare, which provides health insurance coverage for older Americans. So the government already has programs in place to take care of the health of our poor and elderly.

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR OPINION NEWSLETTER

Until President Obama came along, there seemed to be rough consensus that this was the right way to ensure America took care of its poor and elderly.

Most Americans were, presumably, in a position to take care of their own health care. Most accomplished this by working in job that provided health benefits, buying their own insurance, or relying on a parent or spouse’s health insurance plan. Others chose not to buy insurance and to pay for care as they received it.

More from Opinion

Obama and his fellow Democrats insisted that every American have government health care or private insurance, and thus devised ObamaCare, which expanded Medicaid to cover more Americans.

In order to cover everyone else, for the first time in our nation’s history the federal government made it illegal not to purchase a particular product: in this case, health insurance. Yes, even if you paid tens of thousands of dollars for your child to become a doctor who could take care of you for free, you still were legally obligated to buy health insurance.

Now health care is again front and center for Democrats. They say ObamaCare is not enough. They insist America must provide free health care for every single American, old and young, rich and poor.

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., criticized former Vice President Joe Biden’s plan in the last debate because it only covered 97 percent of Americans! For his part, Biden proudly announced that under his plan the government will tell drug companies what they can charge for drugs.

With government now involved in everyone’s health care, we are seeing the adverse effects. Everyone is now on government health care or mandatory insurance, and insurance premiums cost the same regardless of a person’s heath, destroying much of the free market in health care.

Where are the menus of services with prices at the doctor’s office? They are not there because people do not care what the cost is because they don’t pay it!

The government and insurance companies are in the middle, determining what and how much to pay, but never sure about what services the doctor or hospital actually provided. Fraud, therefore, runs rampant. Patients have no incentive to shop for better pricing, and doctors have no incentive to provide it. Patients similarly have no financial incentive to avoid doctor visits by maintaining a proper diet and exercise.

As a result, we have runaway increases in the costs of health care. The Democratic solution? For Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and others on the stage, it is to put the final bullet in what is left of the free market in health care. Progressivism has taken over the Democratic Party. It no longer believes in free markets.

History shows that if government would get out of the way and allow the free market to do its thing, there is no telling what solutions would emerge for health care. New technologies utilizing the Internet, cell phones, Skype, and artificial intelligence would be fully exploited. Competition would bring down prices, as we have seen in areas of medical care not covered by the government or insurance companies.

Sanders complains that America is “the only major country on Earth that does not guarantee health care to all people.” America also is the richest country on Earth. Has he ever considered that the two may be related? It is precisely because America does not hand over control of large sectors of its economy to the government that we have had such economic success.

Why is a safety net insufficient for Democrats? Is it about control? Is it about destroying free-market capitalism wherever they can? Is it in pursuit of a liberal utopia where everyone is treated the same?

We do not know. The question was never asked.

Sen. Hawley: Zuckerberg was ‘stunned’ when I called for third-party audit of Facebook on alleged bias

Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley outlined Friday his tough questions for Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg on censorship and privacy on the social media platform, calling for the company to “take real action.”

“I told Zuckerberg that if he wants to get serious about censorship and proving that Facebook isn’t biased, he ought to submit to an independent third-party audit,” Hawley told “America’s Newsroom.”

“Open Facebook’s books up, open their employees to interviews.”

Zuckerberg said Thursday that the company’s handling of a fact-checking controversy involving pro-life group Live Action was biased.

The embattled tech executive discussed the issue during a meeting on Thursday with Hawley, a frequent critic of Big Tech, on a host of topics, including privacy and allegations of anti-conservative discrimination.

Hawley also challenged Zuckerberg to sell off Instagram and WhatsApp, which the company owns, and submit to an independent, third-party audit on censorship. Zuckerberg declined on both counts.

“I think he was stunned and secondly, he said well we’re just not gonna do that. Until Facebook shows that it’s willing to take real action, then it’s just talking,” he said.

The tech mogul’s visit to Washington, D.C., came as Facebook faces an antitrust probe being led by state attorneys general, and a separate antitrust investigation by the Federal Trade Commission.

Last month, Live Action was told by Facebook that its fact-checkers had marked two videos containing the statement “abortion is never medically necessary” as false.

The tech giant also said that Live Action, its links and Rose’s page would now have reduced distribution and other restrictions because of repeatedly sharing false news.

‘Hustlers’ star Lili Reinhart says she loved playing a character who ‘didn’t have all their s— together’

Westlake Legal Group Lily-Reinhart3 ‘Hustlers’ star Lili Reinhart says she loved playing a character who ‘didn’t have all their s--- together’ Julius Young fox-news/entertainment/movies fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 64f1b5dd-d2a5-5488-9857-b3eaa4cb9cc5

Lili Reinhart was excited to ditch Riverdale to become a stripper.

The actress showcased her dancing chops as Annabelle in the late-summer blockbuster “Hustlers” and said she had more fun than ever encompassing her role as an exotic dancer looking to find her way.

‘RIVERDALE’ STAR LILI REINHART WARNS FANS ABOUT RIDESHARE IMPOSTERS AFTER SCARY AIRPORT INCIDENT

“It was fun to play someone who doesn’t have their s— together,” Reinhart told Wonderful Magazine during a photo shoot for the publication on Friday. “I was like, ‘This is a great opportunity to be a part of a film with a bunch of women who are experienced that I can look up to and a big feature film that I can play this naive, clueless girl.’”

In preparing for the role, Reinhart, 22, said she had the opportunity to visit the famed Playboy Club. However, she found the place a “little too loud” for her liking.

The “Riverdale” star opened up about moving from Los Angeles to Vancouver in order to shoot the teen drama — she said that a part of her felt like she was taking a step back, considering the works she had put in to make it to Hollywood.

“I was just so in awe of the entertainment industry and how so much seems to be happening in that city,” Reinhart explained. “It was where the big movies were made, where the movie stars lived, where such history was, and film and television.”

JENNIFER LOPEZ IN TALKS FOR SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW: REPORT

“It was a hard pill to swallow when I knew that I had to move to Vancouver to be on ‘Riverdale’ because I had worked so hard and so long to make it to LA,” added Reinhart.

Moviegoers showed their interest in the swanky film about New York City strip-club performers who swindle unsuspecting Wall Street stockbrokers during the 2008 recession. The film brought in more than $13 million on its opening night and was projected to make it rain to the tune of about $32 million in ticket sales by the end of its first weekend showing, according to Variety.

In addition to Reinhart, the star-studded film includes singer Jennifer Lopez, rappers Cardi B and Lizzo, as well as actors Constance Wu, Julis Stiles and Keke Palmer.

Sylvester Stallone admits he ‘hated’ Dolph Lundgren during the making of ‘Rocky IV’

Sometimes it’s not all love between co-stars.

Sylvester Stallone stopped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday to chat about his new “Rambo” movie but the late-night host couldn’t help but ask about his iconic movie franchise, “Rocky.”

The 73-year-old admitted that casting Rocky Balboa’s nemesis, Ivan Drago, in “Rocky IV” was a tough process until he found Dolph Lundgren.

SYLVESTER STALLONE HAS ‘ZERO OWNERSHIP’ OF ‘ROCKY’ FRANCHISE

“In ‘Rocky IV’ I really wanted a big, horrible, vicious guy,” Stallone admitted. “Like a primitive. And I couldn’t find him. I’m finding giant wrestlers and football players and that. And then all of a sudden the door opened, the smoke came in, there’s light. [He had a] proceeding hairline, shoulders this wide, everything was perfect.”

“Even his calves were coming through his clothing. Just muscular,” he added. “Blue eyes are staring into my soul. He was the real Terminator, and I was like, ‘I hate this guy. He’s too perfect. And if I loathe him, I’m sure the world will.’ He’s not really, but he looks like something from a thousand years into the future.”

DOLPH LUNDGREN NEARLY KILLED SYLVESTER STALLONE WHILE FILMING ‘ROCKY IV’

Stallone and Lundgren are good friends in real life, and have been for many years.

“There’s an idea we’ve come up with called ‘The International,’” he explained. “It deals with the UN but it’s a different kind of UN, a little hardcore. There’s a lot of action in it but it also really feeds into who Dolph is, because he is international. He’s incredibly intelligent, so he’s going to bring a different spin to the whole thing.”

Mom whose son was bullied, attempted suicide speaks out: ‘My gut dropped’

[Editor’s note: This story discusses suicide. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).]

A United Kingdom mother whose son was severely bullied is detailing the cruelty he faced that eventually led him to attempt suicide.

Tyler Hills, 46, claims her son, Caleb, 10, was bullied for roughly two years while attending the Orchard School in Canterbury, Kent. Caleb, who is of a mixed ethnic background, was largely bullied over race, Hills said.

Caleb, a normally “lovely, bubbly [and] talkative” boy, slowly became more somber over the past couple of years and expressed hesitation to go to school, his mother said.

BOY, 10, KILLS HIMSELF AFTER BEING BULLIED FOR WEARING COLOSTOMY BAG: MOM

Last summer, the 10-year-old, who also suffers from learning disabilities, reached a breaking point: Hills says Caleb attempted to hang himself.

“I found him in his bedroom. I felt sick to the pit of my stomach and helpless,” she told South West News Service (SWNS), a British news agency.

“He said, ‘They keep calling me mean things, they’re not nice to me, I keep telling the teachers but they’re not listening,’” she recalled.

Caleb also told his mother that some of his fellow classmates called him derogatory terms, reportedly using the n-word.

“My gut dropped. He asked, ‘What does it mean?’”

“I thought, ‘How dare you allow my child to be treated like that?’ I’ve got to sit here and explain to him what this means. He’s a baby —  I shouldn’t have to be going through all this, not at this age.”

“It made me angry and upset because I know what the n-word actually means,” Caleb told SWNS. “I didn’t want to go to school because they harassed me all day.”

Hills contacted the school, and the students who used the word reportedly apologized to Caleb. But not long after, the bullying resumed.

Following Caleb’s suicide attempt, Hills withdrew her son from the school. Caleb was just one of a handful of students at the school of a mixed ethnic background, according to SWNS, citing school records.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the Orchard School, Annabel Lilley, said: “School staff, governors, the local authority and I worked extensively with Caleb’s mother to try to bring about a solution that Ms. Hills would be satisfied with and that would enable him to remain here.”

“Caleb was well-liked and was doing well and we are sorry he is no longer a part of our school community,” she added.

Caleb is not yet enrolled in another school. The Kent County Council, of which the Orchard School is a part of, per SWNS, has reportedly offered to pay for Caleb to attend a different school.

“Having him out of school means I am looking after him 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” Hills said. “I love my child dearly, but I need a break and he needs an education.”

According to stopbullying.gov, an official website of the U.S. government, children who are “perceived as different from their peers” are more at risk for bullying.

“Between one in four and one in three U.S. students say they have been bullied at school,” it continues, noting most instances of bullying occurs during a child’s middle school years.

Trump administration to sign asylum agreement with El Salvador

The Trump administration will announce Friday that the U.S. intends to sign an “asylum cooperative agreement” with El Salvador, a senior Department of Homeland Security official confirmed to Fox News — the latest in a rapid-fire series of moves by the administration to tackle the migrant crisis at the southern border.

The Associated Press first reported on the agreement, to be signed by Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan. The agreement would require migrants who have passed through El Salvador to have first sought and been denied asylum in the country, before continuing north to the U.S.

The pact would be similar to that signed in July with Guatemala, yet to be fully implemented, would require migrants who cross into the country to apply for protection there instead of at the border. The administration has also forged an agreement with Mexico that has seen the country up its number of troops at the border and the expansion of the Migrant Protection Protocols, by which migrants are sent to Mexico to await their immigration hearings.

Officials have touted the diplomacy as a primary factor in the sharp drop in migrant apprehensions at the border over the summer: 64,006 migrants were apprehended in August, a drop of 56 percent since May.

“That international effort is making an impact. Mexican operational interdiction is certainly [the] highlight of that effort, but the shared responsibility we’re seeing in the region, governments stepping up and saying we also own this,” McAleenan told Fox News last week.

BORDER APPREHENSIONS PLUNGE AS TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAILS MEXICO PACT

However, many of the moves have been controversial with Democratic lawmakers and immigrant rights groups, and a pact with El Salvador is likely to be met with further outrage. El Salvador is one of Central America’s most violent countries and any agreement that would keep migrants there is almost certainly likely to be decried by critics as one that puts migrants in danger. Many asylum-seekers are fleeing violence in that country.

The Trump administration has also made agreements with Central American countries, including El Salvador, on issues such as human smuggling and border security. A senior administration official told reporters last week that Honduras has so far more than doubled its border force after the U.S. requested they triple it.

The administration also scored a significant win at the Supreme Court last week, when the court allowed the administration’s rule banning migrants who had crossed through other countries from claiming asylum in the U.S. That move would make most migrants from countries south of the border other than Mexico ineligible for asylum in the U.S.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Newly discovered interstellar visitor could be intercepted, study says

It’s been nearly a month since the second interstellar object, C/2019 Q4 (Borisov), was detected. And this newly identified object could potentially be studied, according to a new study.

The research, which can be found here, notes that C/2019 Q4 (Borisov), could be intercepted using existing technology and studied to determine a number of aspects about it, such as whether it’s a comet or an asteroid. Experts also note that it could be studied to see, what material, if any, it has picked up from other solar systems.

“Investigating interstellar objects from a close distance would provide us with unique data about other star systems without actually flying to them,” Andreas M. Hein, the executive director of Initiative for Interstellar Studies ‘ board of directors and one of the co-authors of the study told Universe Today via email.

MYSTERIOUS, NEWLY DISCOVERED COMET IS PROBABLY AN INTERSTELLAR VISITOR, SCIENTISTS BELIEVE

“They might provide unique insights into the evolution and composition of other star systems and exoplanets in them. Interstellar objects are cool, as it’s a bit like: If you can’t go to the mountain, let the mountain come to you,” Hein added in the email. “It will likely take many decades until we can send a spacecraft to another star. Hence, interstellar objects might be an intermediate solution for finding out more about other stars and their planets.”

In the research, Hein and the other researchers suggested that by using the Optimum Interplanetary Trajectory Software (OITS) tool to generate trajectories for the object, a SpaceX Falcon Heavy launcher could have sent a 2-ton spacecraft to the object if it was launched in July 2018.

Other launch dates would need more powerful systems, including a 2030 launch data using the presently under-development Space Launch System that would reach the object by 2045.

The research could also have implications for the study of other interstellar objects, including Oumuamua.

“If C/2019 Q4 (Borisov) turns out to be indeed an interstellar object, its discovery shortly after the discovery of Oumuamua implies that the next interstellar object might be discovered in the near future,” the study’s abstract states. “The feasibility of a mission to both, Oumuamua and C/2019 Q4 (Borisov) using existing technologies indicates that missions to further interstellar objects are likely to be feasible as well.”

Comet C/2019 Q4 (Borisov) was discovered on Aug. 30 by astronomer Gennady Borisov and, after much discussion, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) said it likely originated from another system.

Earlier this month, NASA JPL said the object is approximately 260 million miles from the Sun and will reach its closest point, known as perihelion, on Dec. 8, 2019, when it gets within 190 million miles of the Sun.

COMETS AND ASTEROIDS COULD BE FLINGING LIFE ALL OVER THE GALAXY, STUDY FINDS

Sending a spacecraft to Oumuamua would require fast thinking, as it was discovered in October 2017, but it may still be possible, Hein added. “Regarding ‘Oumuamua, we can launch a spacecraft toward it even beyond the year 2030,” he said in the email. “There is plenty of time to develop such a spacecraft.”

It’s still unclear what Oumuamua actually is, although several theories have emerged, including one from Harvard University researcher Avi Loeb that it could be an extraterrestrial lightsail.

Hein said that he anticipates there will be two types of research, one of which is using remote sensing with a telescope to take pictures. The second would be to actually analyze material on the interstellar objects and hopefully, capture some of the particles from the dust plume, which Hein noted would “provide unique insights into the composition of the object.”

Though it’s too soon to guess what the research could reveal, he speculated that there could be evidence  that “organic molecules the building blocks for life, actually travel between star systems,” adding that perhaps, “life itself might actually spread between stars in our galaxy.”
