‘Impractical Joker’ James Murray pens new sci-fi thriller novel

Westlake Legal Group murray 'Impractical Joker' James Murray pens new sci-fi thriller novel fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox-news/entertainment/genres/books fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article Anna Hopkins 177f64b6-e38f-5398-a070-4a6089c19425

Funny guy James “Murr” Murray is once again taking his talents from television to print, releasing a new sci-fi thriller.

During a Monday appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Murray discussed his new book, ‘The Brink: An Awakened Novel,’ and how it contrasts with his day job as one of the core four members of ‘Impractical Jokers,’ a hidden camera reality series on truTV.

On the show, Murray and his three longtime friends complete a serious of embarrassing and hilarious dares, and if they fail to do so, they get an even more cringe-worthy punishment.

“One would argue what they do to me on ‘Jokers is already horror. It’s an easy transition to write a thriller,” Murray said of his new book.

“It’s exciting, thrilling – there are Nazis in it, possible terror attacks, thwarting of villains – it’s such a great, action-packed thriller,” he continued.

‘Brink’ is the follow-up to his hugely successful first book, ‘Awakened: A Novel,’ which came out last year. The second book, Murray said, takes the themes of his first book and applies them on a larger scale.

“They have to hunt down the creatures and the villain behind the whole thing on a global scale, it’s really exciting,” he said.

As part of the promotion, Murray is also offering one lucky winner an all-expenses-paid trip to New York City to spend a “night out on the town” with him.

Ron Goldman’s sister on O.J. Simpson’s Twitter debut: Maybe podcast release ‘pushed him over the edge’

Westlake Legal Group kimG Ron Goldman's sister on O.J. Simpson's Twitter debut: Maybe podcast release 'pushed him over the edge' fox-news/us/oj-simpson-case fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc b4d6e3da-d404-55b1-966e-484d36e34386 article Anna Hopkins

On the 25th anniversary of the infamous white Bronco chase, Ron Goldman’s sister revealed Monday that she “100 percent” blames the jury for failing to convict O.J. Simpson for the murders of her brother and Nicole Brown Simpson.

Kim Goldman appeared on “Fox & Friends” to reflect on watching a suicidal O.J. Simpson being driven down a Los Angeles interstate by his best friend and former teammate Al Cowlings in June 1994. It was her family’s hope that the incident would end peacefully so that the football legend could go to trial and they could “find out what the truth was” about her brother’s death.

On her podcast, “Confronting: O.J. Simpson,’ Goldman discusses the trial with several former jurors, who she blames for the outcome of the trial.

“They were the decision makers,” she said. “And if you listen to the podcast two of the jurors tell me that we were never going to get a conviction. They believe in the conspiracy.”

KIM GOLDMAN RECALLS OJ SIMPSON CAR CHASE, COMMENTS ON GLOVES 25 YEARS ON: ‘THEY FIT!’

Goldman reflected on the day she found out her brother had been murdered while she was attending college in San Francisco. She watched the story unfold on the news before her father was notified of Ron’s death by the local coroner.

“I didn’t realize that I had watched the news earlier in the day and watched my brother being wheeled out of the crime scene,” she said.

Simpson raised eyebrows over the weekend when he created a Twitter account two days after the 25th anniversary of the murders.

O.J. SIMPSON SAYS HE WILL USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO ‘SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT’

He announced his presence on the platform by posting a grinning video in which he discussed the fact that many have been able to say whatever they’ve wanted about him for years, but he now has “got a little getting even to do.” In a matter of days, he’s accumulated more than 600,000 followers.

Kim Goldman told “Fox & Friends” hosts that she wonders if the announcement of her podcast triggered O.J., just as the release of the book “If I Did It” did in 2007. She recalled that the day the book was originally published, Simpson committed armed robbery in Las Vegas for which he spent nine years in jail.

“I find it kind of disgraceful that on the observation of Ron and Nicole’s death that’s the day he chooses to go online and say he is going to get even,” she said.

McConnell says he’ll bring up ‘freestanding’ bill to address humanitarian crisis at border: ‘What’s the objection?’

Westlake Legal Group mitch McConnell says he'll bring up 'freestanding' bill to address humanitarian crisis at border: 'What's the objection?' fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/person/mitch-mcconnell fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc David Montanaro article 5e484c8a-b4d3-5e6c-ac35-e6778e58f386

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on “Fox & Friends” Monday that Democrats have been less helpful than Mexico when it comes to addressing the border crisis.

In response, he said he will bring up a “freestanding” bill next week to commit roughly $5 billion to address the humanitarian part of the crisis.

McConnell, R-Ky., said the money was supposed to be included in a recent bill to provide emergency funds to areas hit by storms, but the Democrats insisted the funds be removed.

PELOSI ACCUSES REPUBLICANS OF TOLERATING TRUMP’S UNETHICAL BEHAVIOR FOR ‘MONEY’

“I’m going to bring it up freestanding next week and see if they really aren’t interested in dealing with this mass of humanity that we have to take care of at the border. What’s the objection? he asked.

He stressed that the bill would focus on the humanitarian issues, not President Trump’s border wall, which is vigorously opposed by Democrats.

“I think it’s safe to say the president is getting more cooperation out of Mexico than he is out of congressional Democrats,” said McConnell.

He said Democrats are “suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome” and whatever he supports, they will “reflexively” oppose.

“We want to build a wall. We think the president has made a good case for that. That’s not what this is about. This is just the humanitarian part of the problem on our side of the border,” he said.

McConnell also responded to comedian Jon Stewart, who accused him on “Fox News Sunday” of failing to prioritize the continued funding of the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund.

McConnell responded to the clip by stressing that the Senate has “never failed” to address the issue, adding “I’m not sure why he’s all bent out of shape.”

Scarborough ‘completely at a loss’ on how Trump believes he can win in 2020

Westlake Legal Group Joe-Scarborough-Donald-Trump-MSNBC-AP Scarborough 'completely at a loss' on how Trump believes he can win in 2020 fox-news/shows/morning-joe fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc ff89ccfb-7f6a-5025-9653-2e66ef22e6a3 David Montanaro article

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said Monday he is “completely at a loss” to understand President Trump’s current strategy for re-election in 2020.

The “Morning Joe” panel responded to reports that the Trump campaign cut ties with internal pollsters after a leak of polling from March that showed Trump trailing Joe Biden in 11 battleground states.

Meantime, a new Fox News poll found that Trump trails the Democrat in each of the possible 2020 head-to-head matchups tested and never gets above 41 percent support.

Biden tops Trump by 10 points (49-39 percent) and Bernie Sanders is up by nine (49-40) — both of these leads are outside the poll’s margin of error. Elizabeth Warren has a two-point edge over Trump (43-41), and Kamala Harris (42-41) and Pete Buttigieg (41-40) are up by one (within the margin of error).

CNN BOSS JEFF ZUCKER MAKES SEXUAL JOKE ABOUT STAR ANCHOR DURING AWARD CEREMONY: REPORT

Scarborough said even Trump has acknowledged that “everything broke his way” on Election Day in 2016, where he narrowly defeated Hillary Clinton in the battleground states of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

“Considering everything that’s happened over the past several years, I must say I’m completely at a loss at how he thinks he’s going to get where he needs to go to get re-elected again, while he still just keeps playing to that small base,” he argued.

The former Florida Republican congressman compared the current state of the race to the 1976 election, where incumbent Republican Gerald Ford lost to Democrat Jimmy Carter.

Journalist and commentator Mike Barnicle noted that pollsters have told him that Trump’s numbers with female voters are “devastating.” MSNBC political analyst Nick Confessore countered that Trump has a “real advantage” being able to campaign as the incumbent president and has outraised his opponents thus far.

“He’s gonna have this whole year to fine-tune an apparatus of social media and advertising and bash the Democratic field,” he said, cautioning that polling is hard to assess until the Democratic nominee is chosen.

Trump’s admiration for ‘slaveowner’ Jackson halted Tubman $20 bill, CNN host suggests

CNN anchor Don Lemon heavily implied Friday night that President Trump halted plans for placing abolitionist Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill by expressing admiration for “slaveowner” President Andrew Jackson, the current face on the currency.

On his “CNN Tonight” telecast, Lemon played a video clip of then-candidate Trump saying that he’d “love” to leave Jackson on the $20 bill and suggesting that Tubman could instead go on the $2 bill, calling the Obama-era Tubman plan “pure political correctness.”

“Pure political correctness.”

— Candidate Donald Trump’s description of Obama-era plan for Tubman $20 bill.

“So Harriet Tubman, the American hero who risked her life to free slaves, should get the $2 bill that hasn’t been printed in years, and Andrew Jackson, the owner of slaves who is known for the policies that lead to the deaths of countless of Native Americans, should stay on the 20?” Lemon reacted.

The Obama administration announced in 2016 that it wanted to remove Jackson from the $20 bill and replace him with Tubman, the historic American icon who helped free slaves through the Underground Railroad and that the new bills would be unveiled in 2020.

But Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin told Congress last month that the Tubman bill is being delayed until at least 2026 due to security concerns.

Lemon on Friday accused Mnuchin of giving a “misleading excuse” to Congress after a New York Times report revealed that a Tubman bill was well underway and that security features were likely already addressed.

“What does it say about this administration that it went through all of this to avoid giving an African-American hero, a symbol of the fight against slavery, even a token acknowledgment?” Lemon concluded.

Netflix prank show targeting ‘new hires’ sparks backlash

A new Netflix hidden-camera prank show is causing an uproar over its premise of targeting people believing they’re starting a new job.

The streaming giant has ordered eight episodes of “Prank Encounters,” which is being hosted and produced by “Stranger Things” star Gaten Matarazzo and is set to launch later this year, Deadline reported.

NETFLIX, DISNEY CONSIDER BOYCOTTING GEORGIA, CONTINUE PARTNERSHIPS WITH EGYPT, CHINA

“Prank Encounters” is described as a “terrifying and hilarious prank show” that “takes two complete strangers who each think they’re starting their first day at a new job” and that it’s “business as usual until their paths collide and these part-time jobs turn into full-time nightmares.”

“Props to Matarazzo,” AV Club’s William Hughes writes. “This is a far scarier premise than any monster that’s ever crawled out of the Upside Down.”

The show is just one of many projects for the 16-year-old Matarazzo. The New Jersey native also raises awareness of cleidocranial dysplasia, the disorder he has been living with, which affects his bones and teeth, and also performs in a band, among other activities, Deadline reported.

The Netflix series was blasted on social media.

Netflix did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Bill Maher scolds ‘social justice warriors’ over Oberlin lawsuit: ‘There’s a price to pay’

“Real Time” host Bill Maher on Friday’s show slammed the “social justice warriors” at Ohio‘s Oberlin College, a school recently ordered to pay $44 million to resolve a libel dispute stemming from a shoplifting incident at a nearby bakery.

“Social justice warriors … are finally finding that maybe there’s a price to pay [for political correctness],” Maher said during the show’s panel segment. The liberal comedian has long argued that political correctness does more harm than good to the cause of liberalism.

“Social justice warriors … are finally finding that maybe there’s a price to pay.”

— Bill Maher

BILL MAHER CALLS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS ‘CANCER ON PROGRESSIVISM,’ SAYS HE DOESN’T TRUST MEDIA

Some students and faculty at Oberlin College had launched a boycott against Gibson’s Bakery, allegedly accusing a bakery employee of racism after some black teens were suspected of shoplifting. The boycott reportedly caused the business to take a financial hit. But after the teens pleaded guilty roughly a year later, a jury found the university guilty of libel resulting in the school’s financial penalty.

During the “Real Time” panel segment, New York Times columnist Bari Weiss stressed that social media comments on Twitter and other platforms can cause “reputational damage.”

NeverTrump conservative commentator Charlie Sykes added that the “bullying” culture and the “calling you out” mentality have intensified in recent years.

“I’m tired of the term ‘political correctness’,” Sykes said later. “It’s like ‘performative wokeness.’ In our mono-culture, we have to find a way to humiliate, to drive people out that we disagree with, and I will tell you that there’s a huge backlash. … The folks on the right were bailing on liberalism. … They’re basically saying that, ‘The Left wants to destroy you, they hate you, they want to take away your rights, they want to destroy your business.’ Unfortunately, you have anecdotes like this that make it that plausible.”

“How do we get mainstream liberals to stand up that faction?” Maher asked.

Sykes responded by pointing to remarks made by South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a Democrat who is seeking the party’s 2020 presidential nomination. Sykes described Buttigieg as a potential “bridge” builder between the LGBT community and Chick-fil-A, the restaurant chain linked to several LGBT-related controversies.

Sean Spicer: Press blaming Sarah Sanders for their reduction in airtime

Westlake Legal Group spicerAP Sean Spicer: Press blaming Sarah Sanders for their reduction in airtime fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/politics/executive fox-news/person/sarah-sanders fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 52c6d0f9-43ea-5fdf-8028-b8b620013f6e

Outgoing White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is getting undue criticism because a reduction in daily briefings doesn’t give TV reporters more personal airtime, a Sanders predecessor claimed Friday.

President Trump is one of the best-accessible presidents when it comes to engaging with reporters and their critiques are unfounded, Sean Spicer said on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

“The president has been so much more accessible and engages so much more” than past presidents, Spicer said. “I think the briefings serve a utility. They should occur, but maybe not on a daily basis.”

WH PRESS SECRETARY SARAH SANDERS WILL LEAVE OFFICE BY THE END OF THE MONTH, TRUMP ANNOUNCES

“As you saw with Sarah, she’s out there … all the time on camera, talking to the press,” Spicer added. “They don’t like it as much because it doesn’t work as well for their cable contracts and their YouTube views and things like that.”

Spicer claimed that reporters prefer formal White House press briefings because, “They can make it about them.”

He and fellow guest Ari Fleischer — who served as press secretary under former President George W. Bush — added that the job of press secretary is so much more than just holding briefings and making public statements.

“There is a facilitation of access and interviews to other government officials, to information that’s coming in and out of the White House, whether it’s personnel, events or policies. So, the press office is very busy all day long,” Spicer said.
