Meghan Markle guest edits Vogue UK September issue with ‘Forces for Change’ cover

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6062769626001_6062768507001-vs Meghan Markle guest edits Vogue UK September issue with 'Forces for Change' cover Jessica Sager fox-news/entertainment/media fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news/meghan-markle fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 995f4de8-52a5-5389-bc9f-1a354af0d116

Meghan Markle added another job title to her impressive resume, which runs the gamut from calligrapher to “Deal or No Deal” model to “Suits” star to philanthropist and Duchess of Sussex: She’s now the guest editor of Vogue U.K.’s all-important September issue.

The theme of Duchess Meghan’s featured issue of the fashion Bible is “Forces for Change,” focusing on women who’ve made a difference in the world. The cover features photos of all the women profiled in the piece, as well as a small mirror to inspire readers to be their own forces for change.

Some of the influential women featured include Jane Fonda, Salma Hayek, Christy Turlington, model Adwoa Aboah, diversity advocate Sinead Burke, “The Good Place” star Jameela Jamil, author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, “Orange is the New Black” star Laverne Cox, “Crazy Rich Asians” star Gemma Chan, “Grown-ish” star Yara Shahidi and teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

MEGHAN MARKLE’S HALF-BROTHER BEGS QUEEN ELIZABETH TO MEND ROYAL FAMILY FEUD

Within the issue are also interviews with Michelle Obama and Jane Goodall, who recently met with Prince Harry and his and Duchess Meghan’s son Archie.

Duchess Meghan herself doesn’t appear on the cover.

MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY’S NEW FOUNDATION NAME REVEALED

Vogue U.K. editor-in-chief Edward Enniful said of the choice, “From the very beginning, we talked about the cover — whether she would be on it or not. In the end, she felt that it would be in some ways a ‘boastful’ thing to do for this particular project. She wanted, instead, to focus on the women she admires.”

Duchess Meghan, 37, said in a statement, “These last seven months have been a rewarding process, curating and collaborating with Edward Enninful, British Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief, to take the year’s most-read fashion issue and steer its focus to the values, causes and people making impact in the world today.”

MEGHAN MARKLE HAS STRUGGLED WITH ‘INTENSITY OF THE SPOTLIGHT’

She continued, “Through this lens I hope you’ll feel the strength of the collective in the diverse selection of women chosen for the cover as well as the team of support I called upon within the issue to help bring this to light. I hope readers feel as inspired as I do, by the ‘Forces for Change’ they’ll find within these pages.”

MEGHAN MARKLE SAYS PUBLIC DOESN’T MAKE THINGS ‘EASY’ FOR HER AND PRINCE HARRY

Cox wrote on Instagram, “I am completely overwhelmed and overjoyed to share this cover. Being on the cover of Vogue magazine has been a dream of mine since I was a child. To get to share this cover with this group of women who inspire me, who are truly forces for change is deeply humbling. That it’s @britishvogue is even more special to me because British Vogue was the first to feature a black model on its cover, Donyale Luna in May 1966. Thank you so much @edward_enninful and guest editor Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Sussex for including me. Thank you to the entire team at Vogue for making this experience truly divine. #TransIsBeautiful.”

PRIYANKA CHOPRA SAYS HATE FOR MEGHAN MARKLE STEMS FROM RACISM

Shahidi also thanked Duchess Meghan for being featured, writing,  “Thank you @edward_enninful and the amazing HRH Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex @sussexroyal for considering me one of the #ForcesForChange for @BritishVogue, amongst these incredible change makers, and for using this iconic platform to continue to shift narratives and expand the role of fashion.”

Gemma Chan also expressed her joy at being a cover girl.

OPRAH WINFREY SAYS MEGHAN MARKLE IS ‘BEING PORTRAYED UNFAIRLY,’ HAS A ‘WONDERFUL, LOVING HEART’

“Proud and honored to be included as one of the fifteen #ForcesForChange featured on the cover of the September 2019 issue of @BritishVogue, guest-edited by HRH The Duchess of Sussex @SussexRoyal,” the actress wrote.

Duchess Meghan shared a video preview of her “Forces for Change” collaboration and wrote on her @SussexRoyal account, “Guest editing the September issue of British Vogue has been rewarding, educational and inspiring. To deep dive into this process, working quietly behind the scenes for so many months, I am happy to now be able to share what we have created. A huge thanks to all of the friends who supported me in this endeavor, lending their time and energy to help within these pages and on the cover. Thank you for saying “Yes!” – and to Edward, thank you for this wonderful opportunity.”

Al Sharpton urges 2020 Dems to skip ‘political cannibalism,’ focus on taking down Trump

Westlake Legal Group TV-MSNBC-Sharpton-1 Al Sharpton urges 2020 Dems to skip 'political cannibalism,' focus on taking down Trump fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/kamala-harris fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/cory-booker fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Danielle Wallace article 91b289e0-80d7-54e6-8129-4722778845f1

The Rev. Al Sharpton warned Democratic presidential candidates Friday against engaging in “political cannibalism” during the nomination process and urged them to focus on the bigger picture of defeating President Trump in the general election.

Sharpton, who founded the civil rights advocacy group National Action Network, also addressed the political infighting between Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden and black Sens. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker, both of whom challenged the former vice president’s record on civil rights.

JOE BIDEN WARNS HE WON’T BE ‘AS POLITE THIS TIME’ WHEN HE FACES KAMALA HARRIS IN NEXT DEBATE

“Let’s stop here now, because all of us in public life have done things you could capitalize on,” Sharpton said Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” Sharpton explained that by fighting among themselves, the 2020 Democratic hopefuls “do Trump’s job for him.”

“None of us are diametrically opposed to the voting rights and gender rights and LGBTQ rights and civil rights of people like Donald Trump is,” Sharpton said of the Democratic 2020 hopefuls. “Save your fire for the main event. Don’t shoot all your bullets now and come into the main event with an empty gun.”

Speaking to African-American voters at the NAACP convention in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Biden said he’s not going to be “as polite” with Harris during next week’s round of Democratic presidential debates in Detroit.

During their debate in Miami in June, Harris confronted Biden on his opposition decades ago to federally mandated school busing. That same night, the California Democrat also criticized comments Biden had made about his ability to find common ground during the 1970s with segregationist senators with whom he disagreed.

During Wednesday’s convention, Booker, a Democrat from New Jersey, also challenged Biden’s support of a 1994 Clinton-era crime bill that critics claim was responsible for the mass incarceration of black men in the U.S. Biden countered by criticizing the so-called “stop-and-frisk” tactic used against African-American men in Newark, N.J., while Booker was mayor there from 2006 to 2013.

Sharpton wrapped up his appearance on the MSNBC program by recommending the Democratic candidates define their differences and not waste too much energy and fire “when it ought to be all directed at who’s trying to turn back the clock in this country,” a jab directed aimed at President Trump.

Mike Huckabee: Pelosi a ‘capable’ leader but not used to ‘mutiny’ in her ranks

Westlake Legal Group pelosi-trump-thumb Mike Huckabee: Pelosi a 'capable' leader but not used to 'mutiny' in her ranks fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/elections/house-of-representatives fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 33bcfc54-71ff-5c13-afec-fe8e7c952d2d

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is an experienced Democratic lawmaker but is not accustomed to stark disagreements within her caucus, according to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

The 17-term legislator’s caucus has many moderate and center-left Democrats, but the progressive wing has become more vocal in recent months, Huckabee said Friday on “Hannity.”

“I’ve got a lot of respect for Nancy Pelosi — may not agree with her, hope she is not the speaker next time — but she is a very capable, experienced, and very able legislator. … But this is something she’s not used to, which is mutiny within her own ranks,” he said

FLASHBACK: HOUSE VOTES TO KILL REP. AL GREEN’S RESOLUTION TO IMPEACH TRUMP

In regard to calls for impeaching President Trump, Huckabee said Pelosi is effectively, “trying to ride both sides of the see-saw, which is impossible.”

While the more moderate wing of the party is reticent to begin impeachment proceedings, House Democrats such as Al Green of Texas, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan have made statements in support of the move.

Green, of Houston, has taken the additional step of introducing articles of impeachment multiple times.

A total of 137 Democrats voted in favor of tabling Green’s latest impeachment resolution — compared to just 95 who voted against shelving it. Only one lawmaker, Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., voted present.

“She’s got all of these very radical leftist loons in her party that are taking the party away from her,” Huckabee told guest host Jason Chaffetz on Friday. “But, she’s also got reasonable Democrats across the country who will never go that far.

“If the party nominates somebody as far left as most of the people on that stage — if they continue to let people like Ocasio-Cortez be the voice of the party … I think then the Democrats have got a real problem on her hands.”

Fox News’ Andrew O’Reilly contributed to this report.

Lara Trump lashes out after CNN host accuses her of ‘lying’ about rally crowd’s ‘Send her back!’ chant

Lara Trump fired back Saturday against critics who’ve asserted that the “Send her back!” chant at President Trump’s recent rally in North Carolina was planned, instead of a spontaneous crowd response.

“Anyone insinuating that there was some premeditated plan to orchestrate the ‘send her back’ chant is obviously desperate to continue pushing a biased, racially-charged narrative,” the president’s daughter-in-law wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

“Anyone insinuating that there was some premeditated plan to orchestrate the ‘send her back’ chant is obviously desperate to continue pushing a biased, racially-charged narrative.” 

— Lara Trump

She added the hashtag, #FakeNews.

Lara Trump’s message was in response to a Saturday article in the Washington Examiner that reported CNN’s Anderson Cooper had criticized her on Friday’s edition of his nightly program, “Anderson Cooper 360.”

TRUMP SLAMS PROGRESSIVE CONGRESSWOMEN AT FIERY ‘MAGA’ RALLY IN NORTH CAROLINA

“She’s just friggin’ lying,” Cooper said at one point, accusing the wife of Eric Trump of misrepresenting the North Carolina situation during her interview earlier Friday on Fox Business, the Examiner reported.

“She’s just friggin’ lying.”

— CNN’s Anderson Cooper

Lara Trump had said that the “send her back” chant – which the crowd directed at Somali-born U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. – was not prompted and that President Trump did not join in.

Lara Trump took issue with some remarks that CNN’s Anderson Cooper made Friday, according to a report.

“It wasn’t the whole crowd,” she added. “It was just a couple of people right there in the front, but [the president] didn’t say it.”

But Cooper argued that Lara Trump had “primed” the crowd during her warm-up speech prior to the president’s appearance Wednesday in Greenville, N.C., the Examiner reported.

“If you don’t love our country, the president said it, ‘You can leave,’ right?” Lara Trump is heard saying in a video clip before the president took the stage.

But Lara Trump was not shown coaching the crowd to chant, “Send her back!” — contrary to what Cooper appeared to be suggesting.

Following Wednesday’s rally, critics of President Trump latched onto the chant to advance their argument that some Twitter messages from the president earlier in the week – targeting Omar and other far-left House Democrats known as “The Squad” – were racist.

But the president pushed back against the racism argument, saying he was merely opposing what he viewed as the Democrats’ negative attitudes toward America – and that his tweets had nothing to do with race.

“I was not happy with it, I disagree with it,” President Trump said Thursday, referring to the rally crowd’s “Send her back!” chant. “But again, I didn’t say that, they did.”

‘The View’ co-host awkwardly confuses John Hickenlooper with Jay Inslee during interview

Westlake Legal Group John-Hickenlooper-split 'The View' co-host awkwardly confuses John Hickenlooper with Jay Inslee during interview Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/the-view fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc df1ccde0-07fb-56ab-8ae1-cb646fa86ba6 article

Things took an awkward turn on the “The View” Friday when a host confused former Gov. John Hickenlooper, D-Colo, with fellow 2020 presidential candidate, Gov. Jay Inslee, D-Wash.

Guest co-host Ana Navarro made the embarrassing blunder when she quizzed Hickenlooper on a memorable moment from the first round of debates that the candidate himself did not recall — for good reason.

“I remember from the first debate Amy Klobuchar slapped you down pretty hard when you said that line, that you were the only one that had done something on — on, you know, abortion rights and she said there are three women on the stage,” Navarro said to Hickenlooper.

“What are you going to do to distinguish yourself? How do you distinguish yourself in such a field?”

MEGHAN MCCAIN, JOY BEHAR CLASH OVER DEMS’ 2020 PROSPECTS

The 2020 hopeful then corrected Navarro, telling her “that wasn’t to me” and later saying he was on the other debate night. The hosts then determined that it was Inslee who boasted his record on abortion rights.

“All white people look alike, apparently,” Joy Behar quipped.

Navarro, who is also a CNN commentator, blasted Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla, for calling out “self-righteous hypocrites” amid the uproar of President Trump’s attacks on the Democratic “Squad.”

Michelle Obama seemingly swipes at Trump amid ‘send her back’ controversy

Westlake Legal Group obama-trump- Michelle Obama seemingly swipes at Trump amid 'send her back' controversy Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/person/michelle-obama fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 00cc4c69-d9a8-517f-b442-01d5a219042c

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has seemingly taken a shot at President Trump amid his ongoing feud with four progressive congresswomen, saying “there’s a place” for natural-born citizens and refugees alike.

Tensions escalated this week when the president blasted the Democratic “squad,” Reps Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., suggesting on Twitter that they “go back” to the countries they came. All four women are U.S. citizens, with Omar being the only one who was born outside of the U.S.

After exchanging several barbs during the week, Trump continued his attacks during Wednesday’s rally, during which a “send her back” chant aimed at Omar broke out from his supporters.

On Friday, the former first lady tweeted what seemed to be a rebuke of the remarks — while stopping short of mentioning the president directly.

MICHELLE OBAMA: THE NIGHT BEFORE TRUMP’S INAUGURATION WAS ‘VERY EMOTIONAL’

“What truly makes our country great is its diversity,” Mrs. Obama tweeted. “I’ve seen that beauty in so many ways over the years. Whether we are born here or seek refuge here, there’s a place for us all. We must remember it’s not my America or your America. It’s our America.”

Her husband, former President Barack Obama, has not commented in on the feud.

While the Obamas have largely avoided weighing in on political matters since leaving the White House, Friday’s comments are not the first time the former first lady has seemingly tweaked Trump.

“The leader of the free world with a tweet can start a war, can crush an economy, can change the future of our children,” she told Gayle King of CBS News at the Essence Festival in New Orleans earlier this month.

She added the next president needs to have “deep seriousness and focus” and operate “with a clear base of facts and ideas.” She also said she thinks her husband sometimes made the presidency look easy.

“I guess it’s kind of like if the black guy can do it, anybody can do it — and that’s not true. It’s a hard job.”

Al Roker apologizes for Hurricane Michael comment: ‘I misspoke’

Westlake Legal Group Al-Roker Al Roker apologizes for Hurricane Michael comment: 'I misspoke' fox-news/entertainment/media fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 1439fe75-cf64-5d66-8640-b0ccd9a27011

Al Roker is apologizing for a recent comment he made about Hurricane Michael, which devastated the Florida Panhandle last fall.

The “Today” weather anchor was on-air speaking about Tropical Storm Barry‘s estimated rainfall and wind gusts in Lousianna, Mississippi and other nearby states on Friday when he compared it to Hurricane Michael — a Category 5 storm that caused a number of fatalities. Roker referred to Michael as a “Category 3 or 4 storm.”

He described Barry as “a massive storm in size, 800 miles across, almost across the entire Gulf Coast.”

“In comparison, Hurricane Michael .. was a Category 3 or 4 storm, even almost reaching a 5, and that caused all that damage.”

AUTHORITIES: HURRICANE MICHAEL KILLED AT LEAST 43 IN FLORIDA

Roker then shared his coverage on Facebook, where people immediately demanded an apology over his comment, which they felt diminished the impacts of Michael.

Wrote one person: “‘Do not pay attention to category’… those words proceeding you saying Michael was a 3 or 4… maybe 5. Michael was a 5. Not a maybe 5. While we in the Panhandle are definitely all feeling and praying for the area to be impacted by TS Barry, we don’t appreciate the brush off of just how bad Hurricane Michael was. You owe this area a public apology for the slap in the face you just gave us.”

Another individual said: “You owe everyone here in the Florida Panhandle an apology for downplaying Hurricane Michael! Nine months later and there’s still devastation!”

Then there was this: “Al Roker spend about 1 hour of your day today to educate yourself on Hurricane Michael (Cat 5). View the videos and stories of devastation. For you to come across as to downplay Michael as a Cat 3 maybe a 4 was truly shocking. Our hearts understand and aches for Louisiana. Prayers.”

HURRICANE MICHAEL GETS AN UPGRADE TO RARE CATEGORY 5 STATUS

In response, Roker tweeted an apology one day later on Twitter, admitting that he “misspoke.”

“Yes. Michael was Cat. 5 and I misspoke during yesterday’s broadcast during live TV. I covered it and came down to help bring aid to folks and first responders after. So I apologize for the mistake,” he wrote.

Michael, a rare Category 5 hurricane, was the first to strike the contiguous U.S. since Andrew in 1992.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Broadway legend accused of homophobia for comment directed at Lindsey Graham

Westlake Legal Group Graham-LuPone_getty Broadway legend accused of homophobia for comment directed at Lindsey Graham Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/politics fox-news/person/lindsey-graham fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/media fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 20d12771-fa34-5a69-8da9-6bc0a233a4ce

Broadway legend Patti LuPone is under fire for a shocking personal attack on Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC.

Graham has defended the president in recent days amid the ongoing controversy around his inflammatory comments toward four freshman Democratic congresswomen, as well as a controversial chant at one of his rallies on Wednesday night.

LuPone started her attacking by criticizing Graham for supporting the president before things took an ugly turn and she went after the Republican “on a personal note.”

TRUMP DISTANCES HIMSELF FROM ‘SEND HER BACK’ CHANT: ‘I DISAGREE WITH IT’

“Lindsey Graham you are a disgrace,” LuPone tweeted. “On a personal note, why don’t you just bite the bullet and come out. You might just come to your senses.”

That sparked plenty of criticism on social media of the Tony-winning actress.

“Ahhh a good old fashioned homophobic joke from an icon in the gay community,” journalist Yashar Ali reacted.

This isn’t the first time an entertainer attacked Graham in such a fashion. Liberal comedian Chelsea Handler wrote a sexually-explicit tweet suggesting that Graham was being blackmailed by the Trump administration over his sexuality.

LuPone also blasted Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., for blocking a vote on the 9/11 victim compensation reauthorization bill.

“Don’t set foot in NYC. You too are a National disgrace. Maybe your neighbor had a point?” LuPone wrote, eluding to the 2017 assault Paul suffered by his neighbor.

A spokesperson for Paul earlier released a statement that read: “Senator Paul is not blocking anything,” it read. “He is simply seeking to pay for it. As with any bill, Senator Paul always believes it needs to be paid for. Senator Paul is simply offering an amendment, which other senators support, to pay for this legislation.”
