Gavin Newsom bashes Trump on ‘The View,’ claims president ‘is scared of California’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6124281901001_6124285290001-vs Gavin Newsom bashes Trump on 'The View,' claims president 'is scared of California' fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Brian Flood article 14b075b2-4df0-53b1-9c63-b357124c5df6

California Gov. Gavin Newsom joined “The View” on Monday to bash President Trump and declare that Lindsey Graham is “an embarrassment” while the panel offered zero pushback.

Newsom, a Democrat, appeared on the ABC News daytime talk show that was missing regular co-hosts Meghan McCain and Whoopi Goldberg, who are both scheduled to return later in the week. CNN pundit Ana Navarro and supermodel Tyra Banks joined the panel in their absences.

GAYLE KING RETURNS TO ‘CBS THIS MORNING’ AFTER CONTROVERSY OVER HER KOBE BRYANT QUESTION

Co-host Joy Behar began the Newsom segment by airing a clip of Trump criticizing California’s sanctuary laws during last week’s State of the Union address.

“Does he hate California because he knows that you’re there, and Nancy [Pelosi] is there and [Adam] Schiff? All his enemies are there?” Behar said.

Newsom added that Trump “lost by four-plus million votes” in the Golden State.

“We are the most un-Trump state in America. We’re also the most diverse state in America,” Newsom said. “We’re also prospering across every conceivable difference.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin added, “He can’t stand it, diversity is working for California.”

Behar gushed over Newson, telling him he sounded like “America’s coming attraction” as the governor boosted California’s recent accomplishments.

“Trump is scared of California,” Newsom said before taking a shot at Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

“I’m not going to turn into Lindsey Graham, I’m going to fight on principle,” Newsom said, when asked if an ongoing feud with Trump could backfire. “We’re gonna stand up to a bully. We’re not going to capitulate.”

Behar then asked if lawmakers such Graham and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are scared of Trump.

MEGHAN MCCAIN CONFRONTS BUTTIGIEG ON LATE-TERM ABORTIONS: ‘THIS IS GOING TO HURT YOU’

“[Graham] is an embarrassment,” Newsom said. He really is. Mitch McConnell is dangerous, not just an embarrassment.”

McCain, who is typically a Graham defender, was not around to rebut the governor and the liberal panel on hand seemed to agree with Newsom’s every word.

Navarro pressed Newsom to single out a 2020 Democratic hopeful but he instead declared that the party is united in wanting Trump out of office.

“That’s where I’m ultimately confident,” Newsom said before Banks asked if he would end up on the ticket as a candidate for vice president, in the closest thing to a tough question the governor received.

“I get to represent the fifth largest economy in the world,” he answered, referring to California. “I have no interest in that. I love my job, I really do.”

Who was the ‘Parasite’ translator at the 2020 Oscars?

Westlake Legal Group Parasite1 Who was the 'Parasite' translator at the 2020 Oscars? Tyler McCarthy fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/events/oscars fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 07037dbf-ee65-5db1-b601-71b52e695fc6

Parasite” made history and won big at the 92nd annual Academy Awards, but many noted that the director and cast’s translator was the real MVP of the night.

Sharon Choi, 25, took the stage with the cast of the film and director Bong Joon-ho several times throughout the 2020 Oscars broadcast to help translate. She’s been the go-to translator for Bong throughout the entirety of the 2020 awards season to help convey the Korean director’s thoughts to the audience.

OSCARS 2020: COMPLETE WINNERS LIST

Choi received praise on social media from people who noticed that she did a seamless job translating for the director and cast of the world’s first foreign-language Oscar winner for best picture. Bong Joon-ho didn’t always make the task easy on her. For example, while giving a shoutout to the other directors in his category, Choi was forced to translate the line: “If the Academy allows, I would like to get a Texas chainsaw, split the Oscar trophy into five, and share it with all of you.”

Although she did an admirable job at translation, Choi’s main vocation is not that of a translator.

‘PARASITE’ AMONG THE NEW OSCARS GUINNESS WORLD RECORD-HOLDERS

“You already know she’s a filmmaker,” Bong said backstage at the Oscars (via Variety). “And she studied film in the university. Yeah, so I’m so curious about her script. Actually, she’s writing some feature-length script, I’m so curious about it.”

In addition to now having the ear of the filmmaking industry’s top director, Choi’s time translating for the best picture winner has earned her fans, according to the director. Speaking on the red carpet with E! News, Bong Joon-ho noted, “I know she has a huge fandom.”

The acclaimed director’s comments echo those he made to The Hollywood Reporter backstage at the Golden Globes, where he once again made sure to publicly note that Choi is a filmmaker herself before complimenting her role in the “Parasite” press tour.

“She’s perfect, and we all depend on her,” Bong said in English.

Maldives officers apologize to tourist detained for ‘indecent’ bikini after arrest video goes viral

The Maldives Police Service has issued an apology for how its officers handled a British tourist arrested for “indecent exposure” at a public beach after video of the incident was shared on social media. The woman in the video accused the officers of “sexually assaulting” her during the arrest.

TOURIST FINED FOR WEARING ‘EROTIC AND LEWD’ STRING BIKINI TO BEACH

Cecilia Jastrzembska, who has appeared reportedly on reality show “First Dates” and game show “Ninja Warrior UK,” was vacationing on Maafushi island Thursday when she was arrested by three officers for wearing a bikini. According to a press release from the police service, others on the beach complained about the woman being “inappropriately clad.”

Warning: Video contains graphic language.

The video shows Jastrzembska resisting arrest while three officers attempt to handcuff her arms behind her back. Another man is seen offering a sarong to cover the woman.

“You are sexually assaulting me,” she is heard repeatedly screaming at the officers while she struggles against them.

According to the press release, the three officers allegedly approached Jastrzembska and requested “her to comply with the local regulations,” but she refused and was then detained, authorities claim.

However, since the video was circulated widely on social media, the officers received backlash for how they treated Jastrzembska, who was alleged to have been inebriated at the time.

“I apologize to the tourist & the public for this. The challenge I have taken up is to professionalize the police service & we are working on that,” Commissioner Mohamed Hameed wrote on Twitter.

In the statement shared on Twitter, authorities begin by saying “tourists, on local islands are requested to respect the community’s cultural sensitives and local regulations by restricting the wearing of swimwear to certain areas of the island,” before apologizing for the “regretful manner in which this incident took place.”

The police service is reportedly launching a full investigation into the incident to ensure that “disproportionate measures” are not repeated.

Jastrzembska was released later that day without charges.

The Maldives is an Islamic nation in the Indian Ocean. Though popular with tourists for its beaches, visitors are asked to dress modestly outside of resorts “as a sign of respect to the community.” On the island of Maafushi, only private tourist beaches allow bikinis. Maldivian law does not permit the swimwear on other beaches.

Coronavirus cases in UK double after country sees 4 more cases

The United Kingdom saw its number of confirmed coronavirus cases double over the weekend after four more people were diagnosed with the pneumonia-like illness. To date, there are eight cases of the novel virus in the country.

“The new cases are all known contacts of a previously confirmed UK case, and the virus was passed on in France,” Professor Chris Whitty, the Department of Health’s chief medical officer for England, said in a statement on Monday.

TEXAS SHERIFF SAYS INMATE’S CORONAVIRUS CLAIMS ARE ‘PRETTY UNREALISTIC’ 

The new cases are linked to a British man who contracted the virus while in Singapore on business. He then traveled to a ski resort in France, exposing others to the illness. He is currently being treated at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London, the BBC reported. 

“The patients have been transferred to specialist NHS [centers] at Guy’s and St Thomas’ and The Royal Free hospitals, and we are now using robust infection control measures to prevent further spread of the virus. The NHS is extremely well prepared to manage these cases and treat them, and we are working quickly to identify any further contacts these patients have had,” Whitty added.

9 FAMILY MEMBERS INFECTED WITH CORONAVIRUS AFTER SHARING HOT POT MEAL

U.K. government officials also on Monday declared the coronavirus outbreak a “serious and imminent threat to public health.”

“In light of the recent public health emergency from the novel Coronavirus originating from Wuhan, Secretary of State has made regulations to ensure that the public are protected as far as possible from the transmission of the virus,” the government said in a statement, adding Arrowe Park Hospital in Merseyside, and Kents Hill Park in Milton Keynes, are “isolation facilities.”

Swedish woman swept out to sea by wave in Hawaii, Coast Guard suspends search

Authorities in Hawaii suspended the search late Sunday for a 20-year-old woman from Sweden who was swept into the ocean by a wave over the weekend.

The U.S. Coast Guard 14th District said in a news release the active search for Hanna Wänerskog was suspended at 11 p.m., and that the Honolulu Fire Department is taking the lead in an attempt to locate and recover the 20-year-old.

“This incident is tragic and unfortunate,” Lt. Cmdr. Brock Blaisdell of Coast Guard Sector Honolulu said in a statement. “The decision to suspend an active search is always a difficult one.”

OREGON FLOODING LEADS TO DOZENS OF RESCUES, BODY OF WOMAN ‘SWEPT AWAY BY RUSHING WATER’ DISCOVERED

Wänerskog was last seen at Waimea Bay on the north shore of the island of O’ahu around 6:30 p.m. treading water. Fire officials told KHON2 they received a swimmer in distress call shortly before 7 p.m., and the Coast Guard was called in to assist by 7:30 p.m.

A surveillance camera captured the moment that Wänerskog was standing on the beach with two other people when all three were overcome by a wave and swept out.

“She was at the beach here, close to the rocks, in about ankle-deep water when a swell came in and knocked her and her friends over, unfortunately, she was swept out,” Sr. Chief Petty Officer Jason Bryant of the U.S. Coast Guard told KHON2. “She was last seen attempting to swim back in but then a wave overcame her and that was the time she was last seen.”

At the time she was swept out to sea, Wänerskog was fully clothed, wearing black shorts and a black skirt.

FLASH FLOOD, ‘EXCESSIVE RAINFALL’ RISK ACROSS SOUTH DUE TO WIDESPREAD RAIN THROUGH MIDWEEK, FORECASTERS SAY

Since Friday, Coast Guard helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft, and cutters along with helicopters from the U.S Navy conducted 40 searches encompassing over 485 square miles in an attempt to locate Wänerskog.

The Honolulu Fire Department, Honolulu Police Department, and Ocean Safety also utilized helicopters, jets skis and ground teams in the three-day search for Wänerskog before efforts were suspended late Sunday. Searchers had difficulty over the weekend with high surf and strong winds out of the north.

“It is a decision based on survivability factors and time always works against us,” Blaisdell said in a statement. “Our deepest condolences go out to the Wänerskog family and Hanna’s friends. “

Wänerskog was reportedly at the beach area with friends she met during the first weeks of a three-month internship with a nonprofit called Surfing the Nations. Logan Jacobs, a leadership team member with the organization, told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser she came to Hawaii to serve “the youth at risk and homeless.”

Nazi flag seen hanging in classroom window at Maryland public high school

A Maryland public high school launched an investigation Monday after photos of a Nazi flag hanging in a classroom window went viral over the weekend.

ARIZONA CEO FIRED AFTER VIRAL VIDEO SHOWS HIM ALLEGEDLY USING RACIAL SLUR AGAINST UBER DRIVER

Several people visiting Governor Thomas Johnson High School in Frederick, located in central Maryland about 50 miles from both Baltimore and Washington D.C., said they saw the flag in the classroom window while on campus for a school basketball game Friday night. Photos of the flag then began to circulate on social media.

Facebook user Nicole Hopkins originally posted the photo of the flag in the classroom window. Her post was then shared by another user, according to Frederick News Post, which then received nearly 400 shares and more than 700 comments as of Monday.

“I just want to know what class at Governor Thomas Johnson High School has this hanging in the window,” Hopkins initially wrote, sharing the photo of the Nazi flag in the window.

“Edit: Yes. I’m aware this is probably a history class. Yes I know the significance behind teaching it.. my issue is it being in a window for the whole world to see. There’s several other flags hanging in the class that could swap places with this IF it needed to be on display,” she later added in an update.

Frederick County Board of Education President Brad Young told WFMD that he was emailed an image of the flag around 8 p.m. Friday night and ordered the flag it taken down.

The Nazi flag seen in the photo was used in a World War II history class and left hanging in the window, visible to the outside, Frederick County Public Schools superintendent Theresa R. Alban said in a statement obtained by news outlets. She added that officials will “take appropriate action” on Monday to figure out what led up to the flag being hung there.

“The flag was removed as soon as our administrators were made aware. An apology was sent to the community,” Alban told WTTG-TV. “This does not reflect the values of our school system.”

Principal Daniel Lippy said in an email to the school community that the administration has taken steps “to ensure that this never occurs again,” according to The Associated Press.

The school was conducting an internal investigation into the incident. Young said it was too early to determine whether the teacher who hung the flag would receive any disciplinary action for what he described as “poor judgment” in leaving the flag on display. He added that teachers are encouraged to use “hands-on” methods to engage students in the classroom, including dressing in costumes, WFMD reported.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

NYC cops ‘declaring war’ on Mayor de Blasio, union says, following ‘assassination attempts’ on officers

A police union says the men and women of New York City’s finest are now “declaring war” on Mayor Bill de Blasio following a pair of shootings targeting officers in the Bronx over the weekend.

The fiery rhetoric directed at the Big Apple’s Democrat leader — who has implemented several measures critics say are hostile to police – comes as the NYPD filed charges against suspect Robert Williams in both attacks.

“Mayor De Blasio, the members of the NYPD are declaring war on you!” the Sergeants Benevolent Association wrote in a tweet. “We do not respect you, DO NOT visit us in hospitals. You sold the NYPD to the vile creatures, the 1% who hate cops but vote for you.

“NYPD cops have been assassinated because of you,” the tweet added. “This isn’t over, Game on!”

New York City police officers work the scene of a police-involved shooting outside the 41st precinct on Sunday. (AP)

BRONX ATTACKS ON NYPD LIKELY TO FURTHER INFLAME TENSIONS BETWEEN COPS, DE BLASIO’S CITY HALL

Police say Williams first ambushed two officers from the 41st Precinct on Saturday night, who had been sitting in a marked patrol van. One officer was wounded as a result of that attack when a bullet grazed his chin and neck.

Williams then walked into the precinct’s station house the next morning and opened fire with a 9mm handgun, injuring a lieutenant, police added. Only after running out of bullets did the 45-year-old Bronx native lay down on the ground and surrender.

The two officers wounded in the attacks are expected to survive – while Williams has been charged with attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon and resisting arrest.

De Blasio’s office ripped Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins on Monday, telling Fox News that his “comments are absolutely reprehensible.

“He clearly has forgotten his oath to protect and serve,” spokesperson Freddi Goldstein said. “While he threatens violence, the mayor remains focused on the safety of our officers and communities.”

De Blasio himself, in a series of tweets Sunday, hailed the “heroism and extraordinary skill” of the NYPD’s officers for de-escalating the situation.

“This vicious assassination attempt is the second one we’ve seen in 24 hours — and an attack on our NYPD officers is an attack on ALL New Yorkers,” he said. “This despicable hatred is an attempt to divide our city and undermine our safety. We cannot and will not let that happen.”

GUNMAN WHO TARGETED NYPD OFFICERS HAS VIOLENT PAST, POLICE SAY

The charges filed against Williams add to his already lengthy rap sheet, which the NYPD tells Fox News includes prior arrests dating back to 1994 for crimes such as robbery and criminal trespass.

Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said Sunday that Williams also had been paroled in 2017 after an attempted murder conviction in 2002.

In that incident, Williams shot a 23-year-old man several times in the back and leg before carjacking a 30-year-old woman’s vehicle, the NYPD tells Fox News. His bid to escape came to an end when he crashed the car and traded gunfire with New York City police officers, Shea noted.

Police say Williams first ambushed two officers from the 41st Precinct on Saturday night, who had been sitting in a marked patrol van.

Since his parole more than two years ago, Williams has one recorded arrest – a 2018 case of resisting arrest — for which he was already scheduled to appear in court, the commissioner added.

“It is a double miracle that we are not preparing for two funerals right now,” New York City Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch said in a statement following the weekend shootings. “These targeted attacks are exactly what we have warned against, again and again. The hatred and violence directed at cops continues to grow.”

SECOND NYC POLICE OFFICER SHOT INSIDE PRECINCT FOLLOWING ‘AMBUSH’ ATTACK, INVESTIGATORS SAY

The motive for the recent shootings is unclear, but Shea on Sunday criticized criminal justice reform activists who have demonstrated in recent months against excessive force by police, including a large protest in Grand Central Terminal. The protests, he suggested, helped create an anti-police environment.

“These things are not unrelated. We had people marching through the streets of New York City recently,” Shea said. “Words matter. And words affect people’s behavior.”

Yet, Shea didn’t offer any evidence that Williams knew of those protests or was influenced by them.

De Blasio, who won office partly on a promise to reform policing of minority communities, also suggested that anti-police sentiment had gotten out of hand.

“Anyone who spews hatred at our officers is aiding and abetting this kind of atmosphere; it is not acceptable,” he said. “You could protest for whatever you believe in, but you cannot vilely attack those who are here to protect us. It creates this kind of dynamic.”

The weekend attacks recalled other unprovoked assaults on New York City police officers sitting in their patrol vehicles.

In 2017, a gunman killed Officer Miosotis Familia as she sat in her patrol vehicle in the Bronx. In 2014, two officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, were shot dead in their patrol car in Brooklyn by a man upset about recent police killings of unarmed black men.

The killings of Ramos and Liu had also followed large protests. Some officers blamed de Blasio for expressing solidarity with the demonstrations and turned their backs on the Democrat at the funerals.

Fox News’ Greg Wilson, Stephen Sorace, and the Associated Press contributed to this report.

GM recalling nearly 130,000 pickups to fix brake glitch

General Motors is issuing a recall for certain Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 light-duty trucks because a software update may cause the failure of their electronic brake assist system.

The trucks were previously recalled for another brake issue, but nearly 130,000 of them in the U.S. received buggy software that may disable the brake assist when the vehicles are started remotely using their mobile app. The issue can also arise when a driver enters the vehicle and waits longer than five minutes to start it. Both scenarios are accompanied by the illumination of the “Service Brake Assist,” “Service ESC,” and “Brake System Failure” dashboard warning lights.

GM said it knows of no accidents or injuries that have resulted from the problem, but a Detroit Free Press investigation revealed several owners had close calls when their trucks unexpectedly lost the power assist.

NHTSA’s report on the issue says it is only initiated when the vehicle is stationary. A GM spokesman told Consumer Reports that owners are advised not to drive their vehicles if the warning lights illuminate until they have received the new update.

Notifications to affected owners will be sent out in February.
