Jane Seymour can ‘sympathize’ with Meghan Markle amid media struggles: ‘It’s not easy being in the public eye’

British actress Jane Seymour says she understands the struggles that Meghan Markle is facing.

The 68-year-old star’s comments follow several months of contention between Markle, 38, and British tabloids, which have published private correspondence and other sensitive information.

“I don’t know Meghan, but I can definitely sympathize with the struggle,” Seymore said to Us Weekly. “You never know. I never believe what the newspapers say anyway, so I don’t know what the truth is. It’s not easy being in the public eye.”

PRINCE WILLIAM REVEALS WHAT PRINCE GEORGE WANTS FOR CHRISTMAS

Despite having never met Markle, the “Live and Let Die” star is no stranger to the royal family, having been awarded an OBE in 2000 from Queen Elizabeth for her contributions to the arts.

Seymour is among a handful of public figures who have offered the Duchess of Sussex their support, including fellow royal family member Duchess Camilla.

“I think Camilla was probably just as surprised as anyone else when the documentary came out and perhaps didn’t realize how much Harry and Meghan were suffering,” a source close to the royals told Vanity Fair in November. “She wants everyone to get along and be happy. Her mantra is carry on and keep smiling. She doesn’t want to see anyone struggling and she is fond of Meghan and she could be a very good ally too.”

Missing Texas mom: Investigators won’t rule out any possible suspects in hunt for woman, baby girl

The search for a missing Texas mom and her three-week-old baby girl is still underway, and authorities said Tuesday they aren’t ruling out any possible suspects.

Heidi Broussard and her daughter, Margot Carey, vanished from their home near West William Cannon and South First Street in Austin on Thursday after Broussard dropped her son off at Cowan Elementary School in the morning, police said in a news release.

Authorities believe both mother and baby returned to their residence before they went missing, but Broussard’s car and her and her daughter’s belongings were all still at the residence when Broussard’s fiance, Shane Carey, discovered them missing and alerted police.

TEXAS MOM, 2-WEEK-OLD GIRL VANISH; BABY’S FATHER PLEADS FOR THEIR RETURN

“We have reason to believe that both of them were back at the apartment complex after being at the school,” Detective Brad Herries with the Austin Police Department Violent Crimes Unit said at a news conference Tuesday.

Police said they were called to the apartment at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday. Shane told local news outlets that he received a phone call from his son’s school when Broussard didn’t return to pick him up at the end of the day.

The couple, who has been together for nearly 10 years, was also raising Carey’s older child from a previous marriage.

Investigators said they “do not have a person of interest” currently, adding that “anything is possible” and they are not ruling out any potential suspects, Herries said.

“We’re exploring every avenue we have and every possibility,” he said. “It’s possible that Heidi and Margot left on their own accord. It’s also possible that there could be something nefarious or foul play involved.”

Police alluded to previous calls of disturbances or “investigations” at the apartment prior to the mother and daughter’s disappearance, but did not elaborate.

Authorities were tight-lipped on the details of the “ongoing investigation” but did say that the FBI has teamed up with the police department to aid in the search. Authorities are asking the community to call the police if they have any information that could lead to finding Broussard and her daughter.

Herries said the search for the pair is ongoing and police “have no reason to believe Margot or Heidi are harmed. We are still looking for them in a search and recovery manner.”

Broussard is 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds. She has long, dark brown hair with highlights.

Margot is a newborn who weighs 7 pounds, 7 ounces. She is 22 inches long.

Antonio Brown reportedly facing lengthy suspension as wide receiver promotes rap album on social media

Westlake Legal Group NFL-Antonio-Brown19 Antonio Brown reportedly facing lengthy suspension as wide receiver promotes rap album on social media Ryan Gaydos fox-news/sports/nfl fox-news/person/antonio-brown fox news fnc/sports fnc article 8172d13c-0ec0-50ea-8dd3-0dc6889dd0b7

Antonio Brown is facing a lengthy suspension amid the NFL’s investigation into the rape and sexual-assault claims against the wide receiver, according to a report Tuesday.

Brown, whom the New England Patriots released earlier this season, could receive a suspension of anywhere from six games to an entire season, Bleacher Report reported, citing several sources.

Despite the report of impending discipline, Bleacher Report reported last Friday that at least 20 teams were interested in signing Brown — including all postseason teams aside from the Patriots.

ANTONIO BROWN DRAWING INTEREST FROM NEARLY TWO DOZEN TEAMS DESPITE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST HIM, REPORT SAYS

Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro selection, has had 841 catches for 11,263 receiving yards and 75 touchdowns. However, he’s faced a string of serious off-field allegations and displayed erratic behavior on social media.

Brown was accused in a lawsuit by his former trainer of sexual assault and rape. Separately, he was accused in a Sports Illustrated report of sexual assault. Brown met with the league over the allegations but the NFL has not dished out any discipline. He could face a lengthy suspension or could be subjected to the commissioner’s exempt list if he did sign with a team.

Meanwhile, the free-agent wide receiver teased his rap album Tuesday. Brown apparently planned to call it “No White Women 2020.”

Kendall Jenner debuts new lighter hair color and fans are loving it

Westlake Legal Group ET-USE-ONLY-KENDALL-JENNER Kendall Jenner debuts new lighter hair color and fans are loving it Jessica Napoli fox-news/entertainment/style fox-news/entertainment/kardashians fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox news fnc/entertainment fnc bf70fc52-f8fa-5381-a516-8b1093f1d8f7 article

Kendall Jenner‘s dark hair has been her trademark since she began modeling as a teen, but now the runway pro is debuting a new look.

The 24-year-old magazine cover star stopped by colorist Cassondra Kaeding of 454 Salon’s chair on Sunday to update her hair as the new year approaches.

“Glammed up on a Sunday,” the hair care master wrote on social media. The video featured Jenner tossing her new caramel-highlighted hair around while pouting her red lips to the camera.

KENDALL JENNER EXPLAINS WHY SHE DIDN’T ‘FIT IN’ WITH HER SISTERS GROWING UP

“It’s safe to say that warm brunette is definitely in this season!” Kaeding wrote on her Instagram Stories.

The look was styled by longtime Kar-Jar friend and hair guru Jen Atkin, and Jenner’s makeup up was done by celebrity artist Mary Phillips.

Fans were quick to react on Instagram, writing “beautiful,” “pretty” and “way too gorgeous.”

Jenner said she mostly keeps her hair and makeup “simple.” In a previous interview, the reality TV star told Byrdie: “My hair is so stick-straight and silky so when I sleep with it wet and wake up in the morning, it has this nice texture to it. That’s my version of doing my hair.”

KARDASHIAN AND JENNER FAMILY MAY NIX ANNUAL CHRISTMAS CARD PHOTO SHOOT IN 2019

She loves trying different looks but they’re usually reserved for the red carpet or the runway.

“I wouldn’t say I’m that daring [with makeup],” she admitted.

“But I’ve always been super OCD about washing my face — and that’s even before I started modeling,” she added. “But it’s definitely enhanced now because I wear so much makeup all the time. I wash my face at least two or three times a day.”

When she’s not working, Jenner said she prefers to “go makeup-free, but usually, to make myself feel better, I’ll throw on a light foundation and some mascara.”

Republicans Attack House Democrats on Impeachment, and Democrats Change the Subject

Westlake Legal Group 17impeachmentads1-facebookJumbo Republicans Attack House Democrats on Impeachment, and Democrats Change the Subject United States Politics and Government Trump, Donald J Trump-Ukraine Whistle-Blower Complaint and Impeachment Inquiry Spanberger, Abigail Slotkin, Elissa Presidential Election of 2020 Political Advertising impeachment

For the past two months, television ads across central Virginia have sounded a lot like President Trump’s Twitter feed.

“A rigged process. A sham impeachment. No quid pro quo. But Pelosi’s witch hunt continues,” an ad from the Republican super PAC America First Policies cried, as images of Abigail Spanberger, who represents the region in Congress, flickered onscreen.

Like many of her fellow freshmen Democratic colleagues, Ms. Spanberger has faced a barrage of attack ads from the Republican National Committee and super PACs aligned with President Trump. During the roughly two months that the impeachment inquiry has been underway, Mr. Trump and his Republican allies have flooded the airwaves, spending more than $16.7 million on ads critical of the impeachment effort. A vast majority of those ads attack House Democrats rather than defend the president, according to Advertising Analytics, an ad tracking firm.

Democratic groups are not fighting back directly. They are spending just $5.4 million on television ads specific to impeachment. Instead, the most prominent Democratically-funded message on television at this moment is this: “Mike Bloomberg for President.”

The former New York mayor is spending more than $109 million, primarily on biographical TV ads across the country and an additional fraction of that on Facebook and Google ads, all without mention of the drama unfolding in Washington this week.

He is investing some resources in impeachment: Mr. Bloomberg pledged a week ago to donate $10 million to the House Majority PAC to help defend House Democrats, which is nearly twice what Democrats have spent already.

Online, the Trump campaign has been dominating the impeachment discussion, with $2.3 million on Facebook alone ranking as the most money invested in digital impeachment advertising, though a coalition of Democratic groups, led largely by Tom Steyer’s campaign, have come close to matching Mr. Trump online, according to data analysis from Bully Pulpit Interactive, a Democratic consulting firm. Some have gotten creative, however. Mr. Bloomberg’s campaign, for instance, began advertising off Google searches of the word “impeachment” this week. The top result on Google was a link to Mr. Bloomberg’s website.

The disparity in ad spending reflects the political dilemma facing so many Democrats. Loath to make impeachment appear at all political, Democrats are hesitant to use aggressive persuasion tactics to make their case for supporting impeachment. Aside from Mr. Steyer, the deepest pocketed Democrats right now — presidential candidates — have barely run any advertisements around impeachment. The Biden campaign announced a new ad on Tuesday to run ahead of impeachment proceedings, but makes no mention of impeachment.

If the Democrats are mostly ignoring impeachment to focus on the election, the Republican strategy appears to be the opposite. The bulk of Republican ads avoid 2020 entirely. They are aimed more at pressuring the members themselves to vote against impeachment, and not at furthering an anti-impeachment narrative in key swing states.

For most House Democrats, not even a year removed from expensive midterm campaigns, dipping into their cash reserves this early is a risky move. Running in 2020, during a presidential election, is likely to drive up advertising costs. So they are left without a robust defense against a well-funded coalition of Republican super PACs and the Trump campaign.

“For Republicans, you want to get on offense against Democrats, you want to press their issues and define them early,” said Matt Gorman, a Republican strategist and former communications director at the National Republican Congressional Committee. He noted that for House races, the ability to attack early can be key in a presidential year. “The airwaves get cluttered, put your message in now.”

National polling on impeachment has remained largely unchanged in recent weeks, reflecting the deep polarization in the national political arena. Only two Democrats have publicly announced their opposition to impeachment so far (and one, Representative Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey, is planning on switching parties after doing so). So the impact of tens of millions in negative advertising can be difficult to gauge.

“There is no evidence at this point that the Republican spending is working,” said Meredith Kelly, a Democratic strategist and former senior adviser at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “There really has not been significant movement in support for the impeachment inquiry nationally and within the battlefield, everyone appears to be holding steady in their corners.”

The torrent of negative advertising on Democrats breaks down along two key lines of attack: that the impeachment is driven by a far-left conspiracy against the president, and that the new Democrats in Washington traded in their 2018 midterm promises to fight for health care and better jobs for a singular focus on impeachment.

Progressive icons like Senator Bernie Sanders and Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar are often front and center in the negative ads, despite not playing central roles in the impeachment process. The favorite foils of Mr. Trump and the modern Republican Party are depicted, often falsely, as describing the impeachment effort as a means of preventing Mr. Trump’s re-election.

For example, 18 different ads from the American Action Network, a Republican super PAC that has spent $5.4 million on TV ads so far, all begin with an appearance of Ms. Ocasio-Cortez on CNN where she warns of foreign interference in the 2020 election, and hopes for “preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year.”

But the ads clip her words, making it sound like the “potentially disastrous outcome” is referring to Mr. Trump’s re-election, as a narrator intones “now it’s crystal clear, their partisan impeachment is a politically motivated charade.”

The Republican National Committee, which has spent $2.3 million on impeachment ads targeting 14 different House Democrats, has decried the impeachment as “broken promises” by Democrats, who “instead of fixing health care and lowering drug prices” have abandoned their platform to focus solely on going after Mr. Trump.

It’s a message that Republicans were using in the midterm elections, long before impeachment became a reality.

Mr. Gorman, the former Republican congressional committee strategist, said that the strongest performing advertisements in 2018 — aside from individual opposition research — were about removing the president.

“The best uniform hit against Democrats was that they were going to go to Washington and just impeach the president,” he said.

Even ads from the Trump campaign have focused more heavily on negative attacks against Democrats than offering a defense of Mr. Trump’s record. More than 70 percent of his $5.6 million on television advertisements have attacked Mr. Biden, according to Advertising Analytics.

The central Democratic response, led by $3.6 million from House Majority Forward, the Democratic super PAC that Mr. Bloomberg donated to, has been to rebut those claims, running positive ads about the targeted Democrats and their efforts on health care, drug prices and increasing jobs. None of the ads from House Majority Forward are negative attacks against Republicans.

“What if you knew the cost of medication before you left the doctor’s office?” one ad from House Majority Forward asks. “Elissa Slotkin wrote the bill to do just that,” defending the Central Michigan representative who has been a primary target for Republicans.

Ms. Kelly noted that reminding voters of winning topics from 2018 was precisely the message Democrats should use to defend themselves, and that the Republican advertising efforts didn’t appear to be persuading any Democrats to change their mind.

“They are all able to say that while they may be recognizing that no one is above the law and pushing forward this impeachment inquiry and ultimately voting to impeach, it’s not stopping them from working on legislation to lower the cost of prescription drugs, or working with President Trump to sign the trade deal,” Ms. Kelly said.

One of the biggest Democratic super PACs, Priorities USA, has also chosen to focus its advertising on issues such as health care and drug pricing and not on impeachment. And last week the House delivered on drug pricing, passing ambitious legislation to lower the rising cost of prescription drugs by empowering the federal government to negotiate prices with pharmaceutical manufacturers.

A few Democratic groups are focusing on the drama in Washington this week. Need to Impeach, the Democratic super PAC founded by Steyer before he announced his candidacy for president, has spent just under $1 million on television ads targeting Republican Senators Joni Ernst, Susan Collins and Martha McSally. The message, from a Democrat: “Put country over party” and follow through on impeachment.

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin dismisses own network’s impeachment poll showing sharp drop in support among Dems

Westlake Legal Group Jeffrey-Toobin-CNN CNN's Jeffrey Toobin dismisses own network's impeachment poll showing sharp drop in support among Dems Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 629ee218-ed3d-5d6c-84ed-3ab53394af98

CNN’s chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin was in disbelief on Tuesday after his network’s own poll showed a sharp decline in support of President Trump’s impeachment among Democrats, insisting the findings were “wrong.”

The poll, conducted last week, showed support slipping in comparison to November with only 45 percent of independents backing the impeachment and removal of President Trump versus 47 percent last month. However, there was a big 13-point shift among Democrats; 77 percent backed removal, down from 90 percent in November.

While opinion hosts on cable news sometimes have criticized their network’s own polls, it’s not so common for a news analyst to be so animately opposed to a network poll as Toobin was.

“Can I just say… that I don’t believe in that poll for one second… the 90 to 77,” Toobin reacted. “It’s just- I don’t believe it. Like- it makes no sense that that number would change like that.”

CNN ANALYST JEFFREY TOOBIN SAYS TRUMP ‘IN A WAY, HAS ALREADY WON’ IMPEACHMENT FIGHT’

CNN political director David Chalian defended the poll, calling that specific data a “subset” of the poll and pointing out the 6.7-point margin of error, insisting the change wasn’t a “wild swing.”

“I don’t know what’s not to believe,” Chalian told Toobin. “That’s what, you know, you call people up on the telephone, you get their information, you pump out a survey, this is those that we polled told us.”

“I get that,” Toobin responded. “But, life has shown us that polls are sometimes wrong, and David, that poll is wrong — just because I said so.”

Toobin’s doubling-down of his strong opposition to the poll sparked some shock and chuckles from the “New Day” anchors, although Chalian did not appear amused.

Here’s A Roundup Of All The Latest Polling On Impeachment

Weeks of congressional hearings over impeaching President Donald Trump have left the public still divided and deeply polarized by the prospect, judging from a new slate of polling, including a HuffPost/YouGov poll.

Pollsters are in some disagreement on the level of support for impeachment, leaving observers with no easy takeaways. The latest surveys find everything from modest backing to modest opposition. Most, however, suggest that support for impeachment has remained steady or ticked slightly downward since the congressional hearings began last month.

In FiveThirtyEight’s aggregate of polls, views are close to evenly divided: About 47% support either impeaching Trump or impeaching and removing him, and about 47% are opposed. When the hearings started on Nov. 13, 47% were supportive and 45% were opposed.

In all of HuffPost/YouGov’s polling since October, support for impeachment has remained between 44% and 48%, with opposition ranging from 39% to 43%. The last three weeks of polling show fluctuation, but not a clear trend. A poll taken Nov. 27-29 found support at 46% and opposition at 41%; a Dec. 4-6 poll found the gap had narrowed to 44% support and 43% opposition. The most recent HuffPost/YouGov survey, conducted last Wednesday and Thursday, puts support at 47% and opposition at 40%.

Westlake Legal Group 5df93c47250000ab79d307f2 Here’s A Roundup Of All The Latest Polling On Impeachment

Ariel Edwards-Levy/HuffPost HuffPost/YouGov tracking poll on impeachment.

Opinions on the impeachment process remain starkly partisan: 90% of voters who supported Trump in the 2016 election say he should not be ousted, the most recent HuffPost/YouGov survey finds, while 93% of those who voted for Hillary Clinton say that he should.

Views are also deeply held. The survey finds that just 18% of impeachment supporters and 16% of impeachment opponents say they might change their minds if new facts were to come out. More than three-quarters in each camp say their minds are made up. 

Among those who still remain undecided about impeachment, 45% say they lean more toward supporting impeachment and 55% say they lean toward no impeachment.

Because the framing of impeachment questions ― and the results ― can vary from poll to poll, it’s worth looking at a few more individual polls that were conducted within the past week.

Here’s a quick summary of the findings from those surveys:

  • Fox News (50% of voters support impeachment and removal, 46% oppose impeachment and removal): “Weeks of congressional hearings and debate have failed to move the electorate on impeachment.”

  • Washington Post/ABC News (49% of adults support impeachment and removal, 46% oppose impeachment and removal): “Weeks of public testimony and days of rancorous committee hearings on the president’s efforts to pressure Ukrainian leaders to investigate a political rival have had no impact on how Americans see the charges pending against the president.”

  • Reuters/Ipsos (45% of adults support impeachment, 41% oppose impeachment): “Perceptions regarding whether President Trump should be impeached or not remain split. … President Trump’s job approval rating also remains unchanged from last week.”

  • NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist (47% of adults support impeachment, 48% oppose impeachment): “Americans’ views of impeachment are split and largely unchanged. … ‘It’s like the hearings have never happened,’ said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, which conducted the poll. ‘The arguments have only served to reinforce existing views, and everyone is rooting for their side.’”

  • USA Today/Suffolk (41% of voters say the House should vote to impeach Trump, 14% that the House should keep investigating, 42% that Congress should drop its investigation): “Americans [are] closely divided on whether the House of Representatives should impeach President Trump. … Sentiments divided along predictable partisan lines.”

  • CNN/SSRS (45% of adults support impeachment and removal, 47% oppose impeachment and removal): “Support for impeaching Trump and removing him from office stands at 45% in the new poll, down from 50% in a poll conducted in mid-November just after the conclusion of the House Intelligence Committee’s public hearings. … Support for impeachment and removal among Democrats has dipped from 90% in November to 77% now. That finding comes even as public views on the facts driving the impeachment process have held steady.”

  • Quinnipiac (45% of voters support impeachment and removal, 51% oppose impeachment and removal): “Opinion on impeachment is unchanged from a week ago. … However, opposition to impeachment has increased since the hearings began.”

More findings from the latest HuffPost/YouGov poll:

  • Americans are roughly split on Democrats’ handling of the impeachment inquiry ― 43% approve and 44% disapprove. They’re more negative toward the performance of the congressional GOP (37% approve, 48% disapprove) and of Trump (38% approve, 50% disapprove).

  • A 46% plurality of Americans say they believe Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine in order to spur an investigation into the Biden family, while 32% say they believe he did not, and 22% are unsure. Sixteen percent say that doing so would be appropriate, with 26% saying it would be inappropriate but not impeachable, 43% that it would be impeachable, and 15% that they’re not sure. Responses to both these questions are nearly identical to the reactions in a HuffPost/YouGov survey taken just after the start of congressional impeachment hearings.

  • Just 26% of Americans think it’s even somewhat likely that Trump will be impeached and removed from office. Democrats are slightly more bullish, with 41% saying it’s at least somewhat likely. Relatively few Democrats express concerns about the political consequences of failing to remove Trump from office: Just 18% say that would hurt the party in the next election.

  • The survey, which was taken after the release of a Justice Department report on the FBI’s Russia investigation, also asked about opinions of the FBI. About half of Americans, 49%, say they trust the bureau at least a fair amount, and 36% say they don’t trust it much or at all. Thirty percent say the FBI is biased against Trump, 30% that it’s fair, and 9% that it’s biased in favor of the president. Those numbers are little changed since last February.

The HuffPost/YouGov poll consisted of 1,000 completed interviews conducted Dec. 11-12 among U.S. adults, including 364 Democratic and Democratic-leaning registered voters, using a sample selected from YouGov’s opt-in online panel to match the demographics and other characteristics of the adult U.S. population.

HuffPost has teamed up with YouGov to conduct daily opinion polls. You can learn more about this project and take part in YouGov’s nationally representative opinion polling. More details on the polls’ methodology are available here.

Most surveys report a margin of error that represents some but not all potential survey errors. YouGov’s reports include a model-based margin of error, which rests on a specific set of statistical assumptions about the selected sample rather than the standard methodology for random probability sampling. If these assumptions are wrong, the model-based margin of error may also be inaccurate. Click here for a more detailed explanation of the model-based margin of error.

Detroit Lions bringing Matt Patricia, general manager back for 2020

The Detroit Lions will bring back coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn for the 2020 season, team owner Martha Firestone Ford said Tuesday.

The Lions are 3-10-1 this season and have had two consecutive disappointing seasons under Patricia, who took over as the team’s head coach prior to the start of the 2018 season.

While talking to reporters, Ford laid down the gauntlet for the Lions and clearly expressed her expectations.

“We expect to be a playoff contender,” Ford said, according to the team’s website. “That means playing meaningful games in December.”

The Lions had not made the playoffs since the 2016 season and have not had a winning record since the 2017 season when they went 9-7, narrowly missing a playoff spot that year. They were one game behind the Atlanta Falcons – who went 10-6.

According to the Lions’ team website, Martha’s daughter Sheila Ford Hamp said the decision to bring back Patricia and Quinn was not easy. Lions executives acknowledged that injuries had a lot to do with the way the season has played out.

The biggest one involved Matthew Stafford, who has not played a game since Week 9 and was put on the injured reserve Tuesday. The Lions were 3-4-1 before Stafford’s injury and have not won a game since then. Detroit has played with David Blough and Jeff Driskel in Stafford’s absence.

Kerryon Johnson, Marvin Jones, Jermaine Kearse and T.J. Hockenson were among the other big offensive players to go down with an injury this season.
