Priyanka Chopra called out as ‘hyprocrite’ by audience member during panel

Priyanka Chopra was called a “hypocrite” on Saturday during a Beautycon panel talk in Los Angeles by an audience member who accused her of encouraging war in the India-Pakistan conflict.

Ayesha Malik, who is Pakistani, was handed the microphone during a Q&A portion of Chopra’s panel discussion on global beauty standards.

“It was kind of hard hearing you talk about humanity because as your neighbor, a Pakistani, I know you’re a bit of a hypocrite,” Malik said to the Indian actress and film producer.

The woman referred to a Feb. 26 tweet in which Chopra wrote, “Jai Hind,” which means “Victory to India,” and the hashtag #IndianArmedForces.

“You are a UNICEF ambassador for peace and you’re encouraging nuclear war against Pakistan. There’s no winner in this. As a Pakistani, millions of people like me have supported you in your business of Bollywood —” Malik continued before the microphone was grabbed away.

PRIYANKA CHOPRA SAYS SHE WAS BULLIED FOR HER RACE IN HIGH SCHOOL: ‘IT AFFECTED MY SELF-ESTEEM’

Chopra quickly responded to the woman, saying, “I hear you. Whenever you’re done venting. Got it? Done? OK, cool.”

“I have many, many friends from Pakistan and I am from India,” she continued.

“And war is not something that I’m really fond of, but I am patriotic, so I’m sorry if I hurt sentiments to people who do love me and have loved me, but I think that all of us have a sort of middle ground that we all have to walk, just like you probably do as well.”

Chopra then criticized Malik’s approach in the way that she addressed her.

“The way you came at me right now, girl, don’t yell. We’re all here for love. Don’t yell. Don’t embarrass yourself,” she said. “Thank you for your enthusiasm and your question and your voice.”

On Sunday, a Twitter account identified as Malik addressed the controversial moment.

“Hi, I’m the girl that ‘yelled’ at Priyanka Chopra. It was hard listening to her say, ‘we should be neighbors and love each other’ — swing that advice over to your PM,” she tweeted.

“Both India and Pakistan were in danger. And instead she tweeted out in favor for nuclear war.”

Malik accused Chopra of gaslighting her, tweeting, “She gaslit me and turned the narrative around on me being the ‘bad guy’ — as a UN ambassador this was so irresponsible.”

She might be voted most likely to suc-sssssseed.

A wayward snake photobombed a back-to-school picture of a seventh-grader in Alabama who was lining up for the perfect photo next to a tree in Auburn.

Brooke Mills, the girl, was posing for a “Summer’s Over” picture on Thursday, according to AL.com. The picture is traditional at the beginning of the school year, the report said.

“Lord it was scary,” the girl’s mother told the paper.  She said she tried to keep her composure, but she told her daughter to get away from the tree.

“I said it calmly, but I’m sure my face said it all,” she said.

Conservative Pundit S.E. Cupp Quits The NRA In Powerful Plea For Gun Control

Westlake Legal Group 5d50d16e240000a945937eef Conservative Pundit S.E. Cupp Quits The NRA In Powerful Plea For Gun Control

Conservative commentator S.E. Cupp, a longtime NRA advocate once featured as an “NRA Mom” in an ad campaign, said she has quit the organization in an emotional call for stronger gun control laws. 

“I am so sick and tired of participating in this predictable cycle of politics, where a mass shooting happens, the left calls for new gun laws ― some meaningful, some unproductive ― the right yells ‘slippery slope’ and hides behind the Constitution,” she said on her CNN show on Saturday. 

“Nothing happens, nothing changes,” she said. “And with the next mass shooting, we do it all over again.”

Cupp spoke a week after 31 people were killed in two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, which came a week after three people were killed in Gilroy, California

She said that in the past, she’s defended the NRA and its members and argued against stricter gun laws.

But not this time: 

“I am no longer an NRA member. Being right no longer feels righteous because in the wake of more mass shootings, acts of senseless violence that sent innocent people running for their lives, leaving children orphaned, loved ones dead on the ground, we must do something about guns.”

Cupp specifically called for universal background checks, gun violence restraining orders, raising the minimum age for gun purchases to 21, banning 100-round drums, fixing the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, and mental health programs in schools. 

And she said some people, including domestic abusers and those who make violent threats, “should never have access to a gun of any kind, period.”

Cupp also predicted one of the arguments that will be used against her… because it’s one she’s used herself while on the other side of the issue.  

“I know, I will be accused of letting my emotions get in the way of facts here. I’ve made that accusation before,” she said. “But this is an emotional issue. How could it not be? In fact, it should be more emotional.”

She called for more emotion ― especially from Republicans and NRA members who support gun control.

Weekend of violence in Chicago leaves 2 dead, dozens injured

Westlake Legal Group Chicago-police Weekend of violence in Chicago leaves 2 dead, dozens injured Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/illinois fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime fox-news/us fox news fnc/us fnc article 88bdb126-47c3-5274-9613-700bdf131bbe

Dozens of people have been injured and two have been killed in Chicago, Ill., in 33 separate incidents over the weekend where shots were fired, according to police.

At least 40 people have been wounded in the gunfire since early Saturday morning, according to police reports obtained by Fox News.

On Saturday around 3:15 a.m. a 19-year-old man was standing on a sidewalk in Humboldt Park, which is on the west side of Chicago, with a group of men when shots were fired, according to police. They said the teen was shot in the armpit and transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Also in Humboldt Park, about 15 hours later, police said a 47-year-old man was in a vehicle when “an unknown offender” approached the victim and fired shots.

CHICAGO WEEKEND SHOOTINGS LEAVE 8 DEAD, 40 WOUNDED

The man was hit twice and transported to an area hospital in critical condition. He was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

Police said no one is in custody in either case.

Authorities said a drive-by shooting on Chicago’s West Side early Sunday wounded six people, including one who is reported in critical condition.

Chicago police said the five women and one man were in a large crowd gathered on a street in the Garfield Park neighborhood when someone in a light-colored sedan opened fire.

A 25-year-old man was taken to a local hospital in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the back. Three women were hospitalized in stable condition.

No arrests have been made in the case and the shooting remains under investigation by detectives.

Another drive-by shooting was reported later on Sunday where an 8-year-old girl was hit, according to Chicago police.

They said the girl was at a barbecue in Humboldt Park on the West Side around 3:55 p.m. when someone inside a blue Dodge Charger drove by and opened fire hitting her in the leg.

CHICAGO HAS MOST VIOLENT WEEKEND THIS YEAR: 52 SHOT, 10 DEAD

A witness told Fox 32 that the girl was outside, playing next to her mom when the shooters drove by in the blue car.

“They drove through the block three times, but the first time we thought it was ok because we know them,” she told the television station. “Then they pulled around a second and third time, laughed at us and then I heard six to 10 shots.”

She added that police just missed the shooters, passing their car as they drove off.

Chardonnay Burks, who identified herself as the girl’s 18-year-old sister, told Fox 32 that she was at work when someone called her and said her sister had been shot.

“How are you going to come through shooting when you see kids?” Burks told the station. “They were aiming for somebody else obviously, but my little brother is four and was outside. He could have shot him too.”

The girl is in “good condition,” according to police.

They said no one is in custody in that case.

Chicago police told Fox News the final number of those shot over the weekend will be released on Monday afternoon.

Republican family switches support to Democrats at Iowa State Fair

Westlake Legal Group bG7vfi3Red0lyhSy9UnE_ecgxQLccm5_bTcao4VdaAA Republican family switches support to Democrats at Iowa State Fair r/politics

As nice as this is to hear, it’s dangerous. Once Trump is gone (which will be 202 hopefully) then these people will just flock back to the GOP in the same numbers that they left, and we’ll get the same problem in a few more years time. 2022 perhaps in the mid-terms, Trump is a bad memory and people get out and give the GOP a majority again in both houses.

“Never Trump” is a start, but some actual insight and realising that it’s not just Trump, it’s the entire party, is what is needed. “Never GOP again” is what we should be hearing. Trump is just the pure manifestation of what they have been doing for 40 years.

Deroy Murdock: Don’t ignore Trump’s unifying, anti-racist rhetoric

Not even the “paper of record” could resist the left’s big lie: Donald J. Trump is America’s “racist-in-chief.”

After last weekend’s deadly mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Democrats and other Trump haters demanded that the president denounce white nationalism, which apparently propelled the alleged Texas gunman. President Trump did exactly that.

“The shooter in El Paso posted a manifesto online consumed by racist hate,” Trump said Monday. “In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart, and devours the soul.”

The Old Gray Lady’s page-one, online headline reflected these remarks: “TRUMP URGES UNITY VS. RACISM”

But those accurate words enraged Democrats. They disproved the leftist lie that Trump is a divisive bigot.

Trump tweets Clinton conspiracy theory on Epstein death, ignores his own Epstein connection — Trump tweeted conspiracy theories connecting the Clintons to Jeffrey Epstein’s death, despite his own Epstein ties

Westlake Legal Group am-5zygzt0mmTFQoKILsCrX7geieq7s5xYg5-b0z1jY Trump tweets Clinton conspiracy theory on Epstein death, ignores his own Epstein connection — Trump tweeted conspiracy theories connecting the Clintons to Jeffrey Epstein's death, despite his own Epstein ties r/politics

Look, if Bill Clinton ends up having nefarious ties to Epstein, then fuck all that, dude gets what he deserves.

But Trump’s ties are extremely close to Epstein. He has been friends with him for decades, He is known to have partied with him. Some of Epstein’s victims also accuse Trump of rape and recruiting at Mar a Lago. Trump said Epstein was a “terrific guy.” From the recent circulating video, they were clearly buddies. Trump ran a fake modeling agency believed to be a child trafficking racket. Jeffrey Epstein preyed on young aspiring models.

Clinton flew on Epstein’s plane a few times as a means to do charity work in Africa, after he was President. That means with Secret Service. That also means after Lewinsky scandal. I have a hard time believing a former president who endured a sex scandal would go to Epstein for women. With all his Secret Service present. Makes no sense. Seems more likely that Epstein wanted something out of this, blackmail, or a way to take heat off him by doing charity. And if I am wrong so be it. Happily admit it.

But Trump and the right’s focus on Clinton is so ridiculous. Even the media parrots Epstein as having ties to “both Clinton and Trump” is so pisspoor. Trump was like his fucking best friend! He said that “Jeffrey likes them young.” What the fuck people, he knew! He did not care. I am convinced he was deep in it too, facilitated somehow, and I believe the 13-year-old victim who said Trump raped her. And look, if I am wrong about that, then I’ll admit it too. But Trump and Clinton’s ties are not equal in any way. Trump has numerous, close ties, and rape allegations involving underage girls. Clinton flew on the wrong airplane.

Simone Biles reasserts herself as greatest gymnast ever with sixth U.S. national championship

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Simone Biles reasserts herself as greatest gymnast ever with sixth U.S. national championship

SportsPulse: As we march towards the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, here are three fun facts about one of the United States’ biggest stars, Simone Biles. USA TODAY

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Another national title for Simone Biles? Been there, done that.

But a move on floor exercise so difficult no other woman has done it and very few men even try it? Now that made it a night to remember.

Biles landed her triple twisting-double somersault Sunday, getting so much height on the move the folks in the first half-dozen rows had to crane their necks to see her. An NBC replay showed she was actually above its boom camera, which means someone could have parked an SUV on the floor and Biles would have cleared it easily.

Take that, NBA Dunk Contest participants.

And unlike Friday night, when she had too much adrenaline and pitched forward, needing to put her hand down to avoid landing on her head, she landed perfectly upright. The back of one of her heels was close to the out-of-bounds line, but she lifted it with such catlike quickness and no flag was raised.

Biles was beaming when she landed. Rightfully so.

“I was so relieved,” she said of the triple double. “Today I was very, very pleased.”

When she came back to gymnastics after taking a year off following the Rio Olympics, it wasn’t because she wanted more medals or had anything left to prove. She’s won every meet she’s entered dating back to the 2013 nationals — and often by large margins — and her sixth U.S. title tied a record that has stood since 1952.

She won five medals in Rio, four of them gold, and has more world titles than any other gymnast, male or female.

No, Biles wanted to challenge herself, to see how much she could wring out of her otherworldly talent. In doing so, she is pushing the boundaries of the sport beyond where anyone could ever imagined.

In this meet alone, she’s done two skills that no one else has ever tried. The triple-double on floor exercise gave her a score of 15.1 — a rarity on events besides vault for the women. She also did a double twisting, double somersault dismount on balance beam Friday night.

There is no question Biles is the best her sport has ever seen and, no offense to LeBron James, Mikaela Shiffrin, Serena Williams and Alex Morgan, you can make the argument that she’s the best athlete in the world right now, too.

Shiffrin seemed to agree, retweeting a video of Biles’ triple-double with a crown emoji

Four years ago, her U.S. teammates used to joke about the “Simone Division,” but it’s no longer a joke. At every meet, domestic or international, it’s not a question of whether she’ll win but by how much and what gravity-defying skills she’ll do along the way.

Her score of 118.500 was almost five points ahead of Sunisa Lee. She had the top scores on vault, floor and balance beam, and her uneven bars score of 14.750 was tied for second. When she finished bars — her least-favorite event — she gave coach Laurent Landi a huge hug then ran off the podium sticking out her tongue and waving her arms like a 4-year-old set free on the playground.

Her night was done and she’d won yet another title. Even better, she’d made the impossible possible.

Well, for Biles, at least.

There Are ‘Thousands’ Of Other Documents On Jeffrey Epstein Case: Journalist

Westlake Legal Group 5d50a0b13b00004b00daed67 There Are ‘Thousands’ Of Other Documents On Jeffrey Epstein Case: Journalist

Despite the apparent suicide of wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein, there are “thousands and thousands” of other documents linked to his sex trafficking case and “so many threads of information” that could implicate co-conspirators, a Miami Herald investigative reporter revealed on MSNBC Sunday.

Journalist Julie K. Brown said she’s hopeful victims will get justice as cases are pursued against possible co-conspirators. Brown has been credited with helping to instigate a new investigation of Epstein in the wake of his shockingly light 13-month sentence in Florida in 2008 after he pleaded guilty to felony solicitation of prostitution involving a minor. He was allowed to continue commute to work while he served his time. He was charged last month in Manhattan with sex trafficking underage girls.

“I sense that U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman in New York is pretty resolute in his effort to find justice for these victims, and certainly with all the documents that were released the other day, there’s a lot of angles for him to pursue,” said Brown.

“There is so much information in those documents, and we have thousands and thousands of more documents that are probably going to be released,” she told MSNBC news host Morgan Radford. “There are so many threads of information and evidence and testimony and witnesses that are contained in those documents that he has a lot to work with there.”

Brown said it was shocking Epstein managed to kill himself Saturday inside a federal prison. “You would think that they would have been checking on him a little more closely,” she said. But Brown also noted that Epstein has a history of manipulating the criminal justice system.

Epstein’s apparent suicide has triggered many questions and suspicions. He was inexplicably not on suicide watch at Manhattan’s federal Metropolitan Correctional Center, despite his apparent suicide attempt there less than three weeks earlier.

President Donald Trump, a one-time friend of Epstein’s who used to party with him, has already promoted a conspiracy theory baselessly linking Epstein’s death to Bill and Hillary Clinton — even though it occurred in a federal facility which is ultimately the responsibility of Trump’s own Attorney General William Barr.

The FBI, the Justice Department’s inspector general and the New York City medical examiner have all launched investigations into Epstein’s death.

Check out Brown’s comments in the video up top. Her remarks about documents and lines of evidence still to pursue begin at 4:15.
