Chelsea Handler tweets she hopes Rep. Devin Nunes ‘gets hit by a lime scooter’ amid impeachment hearing schism

Chelsea Handler isn’t holding back when it comes to her frustration with Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif. after the congressman criticized the impeachment inquiry process during his opening and closing remarks at Wednesday’s hearing on Capitol Hill, as well as additional statements he made against Democrats on Thursday.

Nunes accused partisan House Democrats of “hijacking” the Intelligence Committee in an attempt to concoct “ludicrous” theories about President Trump’s involvement with Russian officials and slammed the inquiry from Democrats as “the impeachment version of three-card monte, the notorious short-con card trick where the mark – in this case President Trump and the American public – stands no chance of winning.”

Nunes’ statements on the inquiry didn’t sit well with Handler, with the liberal comedian taking to Twitter on Thursday to share her disdain for Nunes’ defense of Trump as European Union ambassador Gordon Sondland noted a “potential quid pro quo” situation between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

CHELSEA HANDLER CALLS FOR TRUMP IMPEACHMENT FOR SAYING SEMI-AUTOMATIC GUNS ARE ‘ENTERTAINMENT’

“I hope @DevinNunes gets hit by a lime scooter when he leaves the building today,” Handler, 44, tweeted on the fifth day of public hearings in the Trump impeachment inquiry on Thursday.

The talk show host’s comments came just a month after Handler admitted on “The View” that she needed psychotherapy in order to civilly interview conservatives about white privilege for her Netflix documentary “Hello Privilege. It’s Me, Chelsea.”

CHELSEA HANDLER ‘NOT EMBARRASSED’ BY SEXUAL ATTRACTION TO ROBERT MUELLER

According to Netflix, the documentary shows Handler “explor[ing] how white privilege impacts American culture – and the ways it’s benefited her own life and career.”

Handler has been a vociferous critic of Trump, and even called for his impeachment in June after Trump termed semi-automatic rifles “entertainment” during an appearance on “Good Morning Britain” with Piers Morgan.

“Well, a lot of them use them for entertainment, they do,” Trump said in response to Morgan asking him why a private citizen needs a semi-automatic AR-15 assault rifle in their home.

“Are guns entertainment?” Morgan responded.

“For some people, it’s entertainment, they go out and they shoot and they go to ranges and they have a tremendous amount of fun,” the president answered.

Handler took to Twitter to call for Trump’s impeachment over the comments and to bash the National Rifle Association.

“Trump telling Piers Morgan that semi-automatic guns are for entertainment is grounds for impeachment,” she wrote. “There are thousands of parents grieving and he calls guns entertainment. I can’t wait to elect a strong leader who has the courage to stand up to the NRA. That will be a leader.”

Andy Cohen is thrilled by Adam Schiff comparison, calls him a ‘patriot’ after Stephen Colbert jab

Andy Cohen says he is thrilled to be compared to Rep. Adam Schiff, whom he described as “a patriot.”

The “Watch What Happens Live” host made his comments after learning that he was name-dropped by “Late Show” host, Stephen Colbert, in a lengthy monologue earlier this week titled “Don and the Giant Impeach,” about the ongoing public impeachment hearings against President Trump.

Schiff, as chair of the Intelligence Committee, is one of the lead investigators in the impeachment inquiry.

‘WATCH WHAT HAPPENS LIVE’ HOST ANDY COHEN ANNOUNCES BIRTH OF SON

Specifically, Colbert highlighted the moment in which Schiff read tweets from Trump attacking former Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, in real time during the hearings.

“Wow, he’s reading Trump’s nasty comment right to her on live TV. It’s like he’s the Andy Cohen of Congress,” Colbert said before launching into a lighthearted impression of Cohen.

“No, you’re kidding!” Cohen exclaimed when made aware of the clip by Yahoo Lifestyle. “I love it!”

ANDY COHEN ACCUSES KATHY GRIFFIN OF LYING ABOUT HIM AFTER ‘DOG’ COMMENT: ‘I HOPE SHE FINDS SOME PEACE’

“It’s great. Adam Schiff is a patriot, and so am I,” he continued. “I’m flattered to be in the same sentence as Adam Schiff. And Stephen Colbert.”

It seems the Bravo host isn’t offended by Colbert’s impression one bit. In fact, the conversation got him to talk about how he handles criticism and negative press attention, especially in the wake of recent backlash he caught over a photo with his infant son.

“I posted a picture of me with Ben on a boat in front of the Statue of Liberty and I was holding him up and everyone’s like, ‘He doesn’t have a life jacket on!’ And I was like, ‘Oh that’s funny,’” he said. “People will always pick something to criticize you on, and so I know myself, and I know the reality of every situation, and so I just ignore it. It’s stupid.”

Michael Moore says Democrats’ ‘Job One’ is removing Trump from ‘our White House’

Filmmaker Michael Moore said that Democrats’ first job is to remove Donald Trump from “our White House” before the 2020 election while commenting on the fifth Democratic primary debate.

The “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 11/9” moviemaker appeared on MSNBC Wednesday to comment on how the Democratic hopefuls for the 2020 nomination performed in the debate. He was asked by Brian Williams where the candidates’ focus should be following the explosive public impeachment hearings earlier in the day.

“Well, yes, of course, Job One is beating — actually, Job One is convicting and removing Donald Trump sometime in the next couple of months,” he said.

Moore continued, “So, it’s like if you really want to go to No. 1.  After what we heard today, he shouldn’t be there in that White House, in our White House, another single day. Somebody said earlier on one of the shows here that — that in the — in the old days, there would be a delegation of Republicans going up to the White House today to say, ‘You know what? That’s it.’”

The 65-year-old went on to suggest that Democrats across the board should not only be focused on removing Trump from office, but his enablers on the right as well.

“So, that’s Job One. Job One for the election next year is to make sure that we not only get rid of Trump or Trump’s replacement, but we get rid of that which gave us Trump. That’s really what the real issue should be.”

Moore, who previously gave his endorsement to Bernie Sanders, noted that he and the candidate share similar views on the working class in America.

“I said, the majority of the working class actually — are women, people of color and young people — are paid the least. So, when we say working class, it’s always, we’re always evoking this image of lunch bucket Joe. The actual working class of 2019 is a 30-year-old black woman. That’s really the working class. And when you say working class, I want everybody to always think, now, that’s a 30-year-old black woman, because that is what the working class is.”

Ilhan Omar slammed by NBA player for voting against Turkish sanctions

Enes Kanter, the center on the Boston Celtics, slammed Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Tuesday for voting against a bill that would impose sanctions on Turkey over the invasion of northern Syria.

Kanter wrote on Twitter that is was an “absolute disappointment and shame” that Omar was the only Democrat to not support the “Protect Against Conflict by Turkey Act.”

He added that it seemed like Omar was on President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s payroll and “working for his interests, but not for the American people and democracy!”

LLHAN OMAR VOTES ‘PRESENT’ ON BILL CONDEMNING ARMENIAN GENOCIDE

Last week, Omar penned an op-ed for the Washington Post in which she called sanctions part of the “failed foreign policy playbook.”

Kanter is Turkish and a critic of Erdoğan, The Hill reported.

The bipartisan bill passed 403 to 16.

Omar also voted “present” Tuesday on a bill that would recognize the Armenian genocide by Ottoman Turks.

In an explanation of her vote, Omar said “accountability and recognition of genocide should not be used as a cudgel in a political fight” but should instead “be done based on academic consensus outside the push and pull of geopolitics.”

Bette Midler on Rand Paul’s Syria comments: We should ‘be more grateful’ to man who assaulted him

Bette Midler tweeted we should “be more grateful” to the man who attacked Sen. Rand Paul in 2017. The star’s tweet came after comments Paul made about the Kurds being “ingrates” for disrespecting U.S. troops in Syria.

“I DO NOT promote violence but… Rand Paul says the Kurds are being ‘ingrates’ for taking their frustrations out on US troops. Which is a good reminder for us all to be more grateful for the neighbor who beat the s— out of Rand Paul,” Midler tweeted on Wednesday.

Paul was assaulted by neighbor Rene Boucher in November 2017 while he was mowing his lawn. Paul was tackled from behind and suffered six broken ribs, including three displaced fractures. His recovery was complicated by fluid and blood around the lungs and pneumonia. He ultimately had part of his lung removed in August 2019.

BETTE MIDLER DENOUNCED AS A ‘REAL RACIST’ BY FELLOW CELEBRITIES FOR TWEET ABOUT BLACK TRUMP SUPPORTERS

On Wednesday, Paul furthered his remarks on Syria telling “America’s Newsroom” host Bill Hemmer it was “amazing” that “we actually have a realignment in Turkey, in Syria, that may actually lead to peace for the first time in eight years.”

Despite saying she doesn’t promote violence, this isn’t the first time that Midler has caused a stir over her rhetoric on Twitter. Over the summer she courted controversy again with a since-deleted tweet that insinuated someone should stab President Donald Trump.

Monica Lewinsky teaming up with ‘Catfish’ co-host for public shaming documentary

Monica Lewinsky and former “Catfish” co-host, Max Joseph, are teaming up for a new documentary about the effects of public shaming

Lewinsky is set to produce the documentary for HBO Max alongside Joseph, who previously hosted the MTV documentary series for seven seasons. The documentary, titled “15 Minutes of Shame” takes an in-depth look at the culture of shaming and how it’s affected high-profile people around the world.

According to Deadline, the film will use documentary storytelling as well as social experiments and the examination of social behavior to explore subjects from around the world who have been the subject of widespread public ridicule.

“Monica Lewinsky is an anti-bullying activist with unparalleled authority, making her the perfect partner for this project,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max (via The Hollywood Reporter). “And Max’s strong advocacy for social justice and distinctive storytelling make him particularly well-suited to explore this complex modern phenomenon.”

Since becoming a major political figure in former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment over their sexual relationship while he was in the White House, Lewinsky has become an anti-bullying advocate. She has worked with campaigns such as In Real Life and Defy the Name. In March, she appeared on John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” for a segment about public shaming and the effect it had on her life.

This isn’t the first major project that Lewinsky will produce in the coming months. She’s already attached as a producer on Ryan Murphy’s upcoming third season of “American Crime Story.” The anthology series, which previously dramatized the infamous O.J. Simpson case and the murder of famed fashion designer Gianni Versace, will center on the scandals that led to Clinton’s impeachment hearings in the 90s.

Trevor Noah rips into Joe Biden on ‘Daily Show’ after candidate’s fumbled debate response

“The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah laid into former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden Tuesday night after his strange response to a rather pressing question.

When asked about son Hunter’s dealings with Ukraine, the presidential candidate fumbled over his words and meandered aimlessly before finally getting to his point.

“My son’s statement speaks for itself. What I think is important is we focus on why it’s so important to remove this man from office,” said Biden. “On the 17 — look, the fact George Washington worried on the first time he spoke after being elected president, that what we had to worry about is foreign interference in our election,” Biden said as he oddly diverted from his initial thought.

ERIC TRUMP BLASTS HUNTER BIDEN OVER ‘RAMPANT CORRUPTION’

Upon playing this clip, Noah immediately mocked the former vice president.

“Okay, one minute he’s talking about his son, then it’s George Washington then something about the 17?” Noah asked, wondering why Biden’s response was so frenetic. “Joe Biden is the only candidate who remixes his speech while he’s giving it,” Noah said before imitating sounds of a record scratching.

The controversy behind Hunter Biden stems from when the son of the former vice president accepted a lucrative position to serve on the board of a Ukrainian gas company.

INGRAHAM: ‘SWAMPINESS OF THE BIDEN’S’ REMINDS AMERICANS WHY THEY VOTED FOR TRUMP

The 49-year-old son of former Vice President Joe Biden told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that accepting the lucrative position was, in retrospect, “poor judgment.”

“I know I did nothing wrong at all. Was it poor judgment to be in the middle of something that is a swamp in many ways? Yeah,” he said in an exclusive sit-down with ABC’s Amy Robach at his Los Angeles home.

“I don’t regret being on the board. What I regret is not taking into account that there would be a Rudy Giuliani and a president of the United States that would be listening to this ridiculous conspiracy idea,” he said, claiming that the allegations of impropriety have been “debunked by everyone.”

Michael Moore mocks Elizabeth Warren’s ‘accountable capitalism’ plan, says ‘there is no such thing’

Michael Moore took a jab at Sen. Elizabeth Warren during the most recent Democratic presidential debate Tuesday for going too easy on big corporations.

The “Fahrenheit 9/11” filmmaker, 65, was tweeting during the event when something the 70-year-old presidential candidate said caught his attention. Warren explained that she has a plan to combat corporations only caring about their bottom line that she calls “accountable capitalism.”

MICHAEL MOORE BLASTS PRESIDENT TRUMP AT CANNES FILM FESTIVAL

In short, the plan calls on companies to be held accountable to their employees and their local communities rather than just shareholders. Moore, who has an estimated net worth of $50 million and who Business Insider previously reported has nine homes, is typically known for his left-leaning point of view. He took issue with Warren’s plan in that it doesn’t do enough to dismantle capitalism.

“Senator Warren (whom I love) just said she believes in ‘accountable capitalism,’” Moore tweeted Tuesday. “There is no such thing. The only thing capitalism is accountable to is weath [sic] and more wealth for the wealthy. It’s only mission is to economically enslave the citizenry so the rich can get richer.”

The “Bowling for Columbine” director also took jabs at former Vice President Joe Biden, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg for their respective stances on healthcare at the debate.

“Joe Biden, Amy K and Pete B just boosted the Republican chances of winning in November 2020 by their passionate defense of the for-profit, capitalist-greed health ‘care’ system,” he tweeted.

The only one that appeared safe from Moore’s taunts was Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“Wow! BERNIE’S BACK!” he wrote. “Fighting the fight for working people for three long hours — just two weeks after a heart attack! Jeez. Amazing!”

Sanders returned to the campaign trail after suffering a heart attack earlier this month. The 78-year-old was asked at the debate how he could “reassure” Americans that he was up for the task.

Cuba Gooding Jr. compared to Joe Biden by his lawyer in alleged groping case

Cuba Gooding Jr.’s attorney tried to defend the actor from groping allegations Tuesday — by comparing the charges to complaints leveled at Joe Biden for getting too handsy with a female politician.

“This indictment constitutes a distorted overreaction pandering to the current hypersensitive climate where innocent common-place gestures are now misperceived and mischaracterized as offensive as exemplified by the incredible condemnation of former Vice President Joseph Biden, who innocently touched a woman’s shoulder,” said defense lawyer Mark Jay Heller in Manhattan Supreme Court.

CUBA GOODING JR. PLEADS NOT GUILTY TO NEW SEXUAL MISCONDUCT CHARGES, COULD FACE UP TO 12 ACCUSERS

Heller gave the eyebrow-raising defense after the Oscar-winning actor was arraigned on four misdemeanor counts of sex abuse and forcible touching. He’s accused of squeezing a woman’s breast June 9 at a Midtown hotel bar and pinching another woman’s butt Oct. 24, 2018, at lower Manhattan nightclub TAO.

Biden landed in hot water in March after former Nevada politician Lucy Flores penned an op-ed for New York magazine, saying the former vice president and current presidential candidate made her feel “gross” when he grabbed her by the shoulders from behind and kissed her hair during a Las Vegas campaign event.

CUBA GOODING JR. FACING NEW CHARGE AS TRIAL IS DELAYED AGAIN

Three other women came forward and said that Biden had touched them inappropriately — including by giving one an Eskimo kiss and placing his hand on another’s thigh. Biden, however, was never accused of groping a woman’s breast or buttocks.

Heller called the Manhattan DA’s case against Gooding “incredibly weak.” Assistant DA Jenna Long said at the hearing that prosecutors would try to introduce evidence at trial from 12 other accusers to prove a pattern of abuse — although he is not charged for those alleged crimes.

A judge will ultimately decide whether the 12 additional accusers’ claims will be admitted at trial.
