Warren has a spot-on lookalike she met face-to-face

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-3763f302b61c4883ac9f97e3d3cdfdbf Warren has a spot-on lookalike she met face-to-face Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/minnesota fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/media fox news fnc/politics fnc ec7a6d20-1f94-53f4-89a8-8c720754ec70 article

Massachusetts senator and 2020 Democrat Elizabeth Warren was seeing double on Monday after meeting her lookalike in Minnesota. 

Stephanie Oyen sported short blond hair, glasses, and a blue blazer at a town hall event at Macalester College knowing that her attire would resemble the presidential candidate’s style. But she apparently underestimated how good of a doppelgänger she is.

“I thought it would get some giggles,” Oyen told the Star Tribune. “Then people started yelling, ‘Senator Warren!’ People were clapping and running up to me to take photos. I kept saying ‘I’m not her!’ but I looked up and hundreds of people were staring at me.”

Eventually, she had enough of the confusion she had sparked at the event and took off the blazer and glasses.

“It got weird very fast,” she explained. “I talk with my hands and shake my head, which only made me look more like Elizabeth Warren. I was saying ‘I’m not her!’ but I could have been saying ‘Medicare for all!’ ”

She continued, “I’m not a prankster. I really thought people would know, but then they started running up and saying ‘You’re my hero!’ and taking photos. I felt so bad.”

However, things took a strange turn when Oyen met Warren face-to-face.

“I couldn’t tell if she recognized I was dressed like her or if she thought, ‘Here’s a weird lady dressed like a stereotypical politician,’ ” Oyen recalled.

Warren reportedly told her “We need to talk!” as she pointed to Oyen’s outfit.

The 2020 candidate later joked on Twitter that it “would’ve been even better if she’d brought her own Bailey,” aka Warren’s golden retriever and campaign companion.

Spike Lee calls Trump a ‘white supremacist,’ says his supporters ‘kneel down before the altar of the almighty dollar’

Westlake Legal Group Spike-Lee Spike Lee calls Trump a 'white supremacist,' says his supporters 'kneel down before the altar of the almighty dollar' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/media fnc article a7ede1ed-2633-5b35-b772-a7b175c4eee1

Famed filmmaker Spike Lee claimed Tuesday it is “not even a question anymore” that President Trump is a “white supremacist” and suggested his supporters back him “for money.”

While commemorating the 400th anniversary of the first slaves arriving in North America, Lee pivoted to “where we are today” and asked CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, “Why are we still asking, ‘Is this guy a white supremacist?'” which was likely in reference to several 2020 Democratic candidates who agreed that Trump is a white supremacist when asked recently.

“It’s not even a question anymore,” Lee said. “I mean, the Muslim ban, all Mexicans are rapists, murderers, and drug dealers…”

DONALD TRUMP ATTACKS SPIKE LEE OVER ‘RACIST HIT’ DURING OSCARS ACCEPTANCE SPEECH

“Do you think he’s going to be reelected?” Cooper asked.

“Can I get on my knees now and pray?” Lee joked.

The Oscar-winning screenwriter then slammed Trump for his handling of the 2017 Charlottesville riot, saying that the president couldn’t “make a decision between what’s right and wrong.” He also claimed Trump gave neo-Nazis and white nationalists the “dog whistle” to “come on out” and show their faces in public since their guy “is in the White House.”

He also took a swipe at Trump supporters.

“I think that people out there really look in their heart and I truly believe people know what’s right and what’s wrong. You know that.” Lee continued. “And a lot of these people getting behind this guy… they’re gonna be on the wrong side of history with him… For money? What are you doing it for? I mean… you kneel down before the altar of the almighty dollar, then I guess all bets are off.”

Scaramucci launching PAC to ‘dismantle’ Trump: I can possibly move ‘eight percent’ of his voters

Westlake Legal Group Scaramucci-Trump Scaramucci launching PAC to 'dismantle' Trump: I can possibly move 'eight percent' of his voters Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 4bf42a4e-1f55-58de-b4f3-22bbd22762a4

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is launching a PAC in order to “dismantle” President Trump and claims he could potentially sway as much as eight percent of his voters.

During a Tuesday interview on the “Hacks on Tap” podcast, Scaramucci casually mentioned that he was going to be “running advertisements” from his own political action committee featuring him and his wife describing what the president “does to people” in hopes of swaying white suburban women.

“Hold on a second, tell me about your political action committee,” podcast co-host David Axelrod interrupted.

SCARAMUCCI PREDICTS THAT ‘DEMAGOGUE’ TRUMP WON’T BE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE IN 2020

“I haven’t formed it yet, but I will,” Scaramucci said. “I’m in the process of doing it. It’s going to be The Committee to Dismantle Trump, but I’ll come up with a much more clever thing than that. I’m gonna throw in my own dough, ask others to put their dough in there and we’re going to explain to the people what he’s doing.”

Scaramucci suggested that the reason he gets “under Trump’s skin” is because he himself isn’t a politician and that his insults are “a reflection of him.”

“At the end of the day, you know, I can grab ahold of five, six, eight percent of the people that know he’s nuts and possibly move them,” Scaramucci added.

On Monday, Trump blasted Scaramucci on and referenced Scaramucci’s wife, Deidre Ball, on Twitter.

“I barely knew him until his 11 days of gross incompetence — made a fool of himself, bad on TV. Abused staff… got fired,” Trump tweeted.

“Wrote a very nice book about me just recently. Now the book is a lie? Said his wife was driving him crazy, “something big” was happening with her. Getting divorced. He was a mental wreck. We didn’t want him around. Now Fake News puts him on like he was my buddy!”

Conan O’Brien vows to negotiate Trump’s Greenland deal, offers up Florida

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-88a63f3254d5493d87de3c571e34b2d6 Conan O'Brien vows to negotiate Trump's Greenland deal, offers up Florida Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/politics-on-late-night fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 215c442e-c56f-519f-b4a8-fafe447fa689

“Conan” host Conan O’Brien is offering his negotiation skills to President Trump after it was reported that the president has expressed serious interest in buying Greenland.

“A lot of people have kind of been making fun of the idea for the past day or so… but not me,” O’Brien told his audience Monday. “You see, I want to give the President Trump the benefit of the doubt. What if we, the United States, did buy Greenland? It might just be a good idea. It seriously might. And as the elder statesman of late-night, what if I negotiated the deal?”

After sparking some laughs, the TBS host doubled down.

WOULD COLBERT INVITE TRUMP ON HIS SHOW AGAIN? ‘THE QUICK ANSWER WOULD BE NO’

“Seriously, what if I handled this historic negotiation?” O’Brien said. “I have as much, if not more, negotiating experience as Trump. I mean c’mon, an 11 o’clock timeslot on TBS, you don’t just get that!”

Despite Denmark insisting that Greenland is “not for sale,” the late-night comedian is convinced otherwise and warned that China will snatch it with “all cash.”

“So alright, Denmark, you want to play hardball? I’m ready to sweeten the deal,” O’Brien said. “We could do a straight trade: Greenland for Florida.”

The “Conan” host then highlighted some perks of being part of the United States, like being “enrolled in the U.S. health care system,” and never being cold by being “American fat.”

He also announced that he was going to make an actual visit to the icy nation as part of his “Conan Without Borders” special.

“Here’s my promise… if I do not make this deal to purchase Greenland, if I do not make this deal, I, Conan O’Brien will never, ever again step foot on American soil,” he joked to this audience, which roared with applause.

Jill Biden to voters: You may have to ‘swallow a little bit’ with my husband so we can beat Trump

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-e2c11343617941bf95d5a4759b019680 Jill Biden to voters: You may have to 'swallow a little bit' with my husband so we can beat Trump Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article ac6f01c7-8d3c-5ccc-805f-5c99f1c33f3d

Speaking at a bookstore in Manchester, N.H., Dr. Jill Biden urged voters on Monday to consider the “electability” of her husband, former Vice President Joe Biden, ahead of the 2020 Democratic primaries, and how they may have to “swallow a little bit” with the Democratic front-runner in order to defeat President Trump.

“I know that not all of you are committed to my husband, and I respect that, but I want you to think about your candidate, his or her electability, and who’s going to win this race,” Dr. Biden said.

“And so if you’re looking at that you’ve got to look at the polls,” Biden said. “If they’re consistent and they’re consistently saying the same thing, I think you can’t dismiss that.”

The former second lady insisted the party’s eventual nominee “just can’t have Democrats” in order to win a general election, stressing that person must win over independents. She also pointed to polls in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan, where her husband is leading in matchups against Trump.

“You know we have to include everybody, our party has to be more inclusive, which means we have to go to independents and say ‘join us,’ we have to go to Republicans and say ‘OK, you’re a Republican, but you can’t tell me that your children are proud of the president, you know, of the things he says and, you know, as a mother or as a father, I mean, how can you be proud of that president as a leader?”

She continued, “So yes, you know, your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, healthcare than Joe is, but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election, and maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘OK, I personally like so and so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.”

In the latest Fox News poll, Biden has a double-digit lead against the president, with 50 percent of likely voters to Trump’s 38 percent.

Gov. Cuomo knocks ‘The Godfather’ for anti-Italian stereotypes following brother’s ‘Fredo’ incident

Westlake Legal Group Chris-Andrew-Cuomo Gov. Cuomo knocks 'The Godfather' for anti-Italian stereotypes following brother's 'Fredo' incident Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/person/andrew-cuomo fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc fdefe57a-efe3-55b0-84e6-e69708e5efc2 article

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., blasted “The Godfather” for repeating “negative stereotypes” about Italians following a viral confrontation involving his brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, taking offense at being called “Fredo” by a heckler.

During a Monday interview on WAMC, the New York governor was briefly asked about a video where Chris Cuomo had a fiery exchange with a heckler who taunted the cable news anchor by referring to him as the “weak brother” from the Oscar-winning film, which he called a “slur” against Italians.

Although Gov. Cuomo didn’t directly address the “Fredo” video, he expressed a similar sentiment to his brother, telling WAMC’s Alan Chartock that the film repeats “discrimination.”

CNN’S CHRIS CUOMO SAYS HE’S ‘OK’ WITH MEDIA MOVING ON FROM VIRGINIA GOV. RALPH NORTHAM

“My father wouldn’t watch the movie because it was anti-Italian. The stereotype is anti-Italian,” Cuomo said.

“I can’t tell you how many times people have come up to me and said, ‘In ‘The Godfather,’ who are you, which one are you, which character are you?’ I had a battle with ‘The Sopranos,’ which was the same stereotype over and over and over, the Italian thug, the Italian Mafia… When you repeat the negative stereotypes, you are repeating the discrimination.”

The top New York Democrat also mentioned that he had only seen “parts” of “The Godfather.”

Last week, the “Cuomo Prime Time” host was seen in an unverified video responding to a personal attack, equating the term “Fredo” to the N-word.

“No, punk-ass b—-es from the right call me ‘Fredo.’ My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN,” Cuomo told the man. “‘Fredo’ was from ‘The Godfather.’ He was a weak brother and they use that as an Italian slur — are any of you Italian?… It’s a f—ing insult to your people. It’s an insult to your f–kin’ people. It’s like the N-word for us. Is that a cool f—ing thing?”

Security guard for CNN’s April Ryan security guard reportedly facing charges over incident with reporter

Westlake Legal Group April-Ryan-Bodyguard Security guard for CNN's April Ryan security guard reportedly facing charges over incident with reporter Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Brian Flood article 731d4b62-3acb-5ce8-992f-20a773527740

The security guard of CNN political analyst April Ryan will apparently face criminal charges after he was captured on video appearing to violently remove a local news editor from an event where the outspoken pundit was a keynote speaker.

The alleged victim, Charlie Kratovil, editor of New Brunswick Today, tweeted an image of himself holding up court documents on Monday, noting that Ryan’s security guard, Joel Morris, will be arraigned on Sept. 12 in Superior Court on charges of harassment, assault and theft by unlawful taking.

A reporter also tweeted the document, but New Brunswick Municipal Court did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for confirmation. The court’s online archive was not updated with Monday’s documents at the time of this report.

CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

CNN’S APRIL RYAN AFTER BODYGUARD EJECTS LOCAL JOURNALIST: ‘WHEN I SPEAK, I DON’T HAVE NEWS COVERING MY SPEECH’

MAN SAYS HE WITNESSED CNN HOST DON LEMON’S ALLEGED ASSAULT: ‘I WAS KIND OF MAKING FUN, I FEEL BAD NOW’

The alleged incident occurred on Aug. 3, when Kratovil said he was covering a speech given by Ryan at the 4th annual New Jersey Parent Summit, which focuses on “educating, empowering and preparing parents for our future leaders.”

In emails obtained by Fox News, Kratovil had RSVP’d to the event and received confirmation.

Kratovil said during the event he was approached by a man who started to ask him questions. He said that he found out later that he was Ryan’s security guard.

“During the intro, this man came up to me, mentioned my video camera & asked me ‘Who are you with?'” Kratovil wrote on Twitter. “I gave him my card & explained that I followed the proper channels to cover the event. I asked if he had a card & he responded by saying he was ‘with the speaker.'”

Kratovil alleged that Morris threatened to “take… down” the camera if he himself didn’t and the public relations team began “pressuring” Kratovil to stop recording all while, ironically, U.S. Rep. Donald Payne Jr. was praising the American Urban Radio Networks reporter for her “Freedom of the Press” award she received.

CNN HAS BAD WEEK AMID APRIL RYAN, CHRIS CUOMO AND DON LEMON NEWS: ‘IT WAS QUITE EMBARRASSING’

Morris appears to approach Ryan as she was speaking at the podium and whispered something to her. She nods and then pauses for almost 30 seconds until Morris grabs Kratovil’s camera equipment and tripod and walks out of the ballroom.

“Don’t touch my camera, please. Put that down. Don’t you dare. Put that down, sir,” Kratovil told the bodyguard as he followed him out of the room.

As Kratovil and Morris begin causing a scene, Ryan explains to the crowd, “When I speak, I don’t have news covering my speech.” Kratovil said another journalist was recording her speech.

The two men then enter the lobby, where Kratovil is berated by Shennell McCloud, executive director of Project Ready, the group that hosted the event. McCloud accuses Kratovil of “interrupting” the event and demands his removal from the hotel.

Security camera footage from the hotel lobby appears to show Morris forcibly pushing Kratovil toward the exit.

“Once I got the camera back, I was concerned for my physical safety and I asked for hotel security. I was hoping they would maintain order and maybe document the theft of my camera and any damage that may have occurred to it as a result,” Kratovil told Fox News. “I was thinking, ‘Wow, this guy is really crossing the line here.’ At the same time, I was trying not to fall down face first while also trying to protect the camera, and yelling for bystanders to call the police as this was happening.”

Kratovil expressed his solidarity with Ryan, an outspoken critic of President Trump and his treatment of the press, but told Fox News that “her reputation” now depends on addressing what had happened and is hoping for an apology.

“I think that the President deserves much criticism for his administration’s lack of transparency, his own irresponsible rhetoric towards the media, and his childish attacks on individual reporters like Ms. Ryan,” Kratovil said. “Her reputation now depends on finally addressing this situation head-on and proclaiming that what happened that night in New Brunswick cannot be tolerated.”

Maher doubles down on call for recession to oust Trump; says it would be ‘very worth’ it

Westlake Legal Group Bill-Maher-HBO Maher doubles down on call for recession to oust Trump; says it would be 'very worth' it Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/us/economy fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/politics-on-late-night fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 870d7851-e5f1-5cca-9f63-d76bf310cd36

“Real Time” host Bill Maher doubled down Friday on his desire for the U.S. economy to fall into recession in hopes of blocking a second term for President Trump — telling his panel of guests any hardship that results would be “very worth” it.

“I’ve been saying for about two years that I hope we have a recession and people get mad at me,” said Maher, a multimillionaire who would likely be well insulated from a financial downturn.

“I’m just saying we can survive a recession,” he continued. “We’ve had 47 of them. We’ve had one every time there’s a Republican president! They don’t last forever, You know what lasts forever? Wiping out species!”

MAHER SLAMS FAR-LEFT DEMS FOR BACKING ANTI-ISRAEL BDS MOVEMENT: A ‘BULLS— PURITY TEST’

The HBO star then pointed to a U.N. report warning how many species of plants and animals are at the risk of extinction and went on to blast the Trump administration for rolling back regulations from the Nixon-era Endangered Species Act “like any evil villain would do.”

“So yes, a recession would be very worth getting rid of Donald Trump and these kinds of policies,” Maher reiterated. “A recession would definitely knock him out of office.”

Earlier this month, Maher revived his argument in favor of a recession and last week found an ally in NBC News correspondent Richard Engel during a panel discussion.

“Short-term pain might be better than long-term destruction of the Constitution,” Engel argued.

“Right!” Maher replied. “Thank you very much.”

Maher slams far-left Dems for backing anti-Israel BDS movement: A ‘bulls— purity test’

Westlake Legal Group bill-maher-HBO Maher slams far-left Dems for backing anti-Israel BDS movement: A 'bulls--- purity test' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/world/world-regions/israel fox-news/person/rashida-tlaib fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox-news/entertainment/politics-on-late-night fox news fnc/entertainment fnc ba369cbc-f66d-50ab-ace6-e75e27f1d1ba article

“Real Time” host Bill Maher spent part of Friday’s show slamming the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, calling it a “bulls— purity test.”

Maher kicked off the show’s panel segment by asking if it was “fair” to boycott, divest, and sanction Israel in wake of the clash between the Israeli government and pro-BDS U.S. Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., over their planned visit to Israel.

But since Maher’s panelists all sidestepped the question, he decided he would “answer it myself.”

BILL MAHER ON BIDEN’S ‘SENIOR MOMENTS’: ‘GET USED TO IT’ IF HE BECOMES DEM NOMINEE

“It’s a bulls— purity test, BDS is a bulls— purity test by people who want to appear ‘woke’ but actually slept through history class,” Maher said, drawing loud cheers from the audience. “It’s predicated on this notion … I think it’s very shallow thinking that the Jews in Israel are mostly white and Palestinians are mostly brown, so they must be innocent and correct and the Jews must be wrong. As if the occupation came right out of the blue, that this ‘completely peaceful people’ found themselves occupied. Forget about the intifadas and the suicide bombings and the rockets and how many wars.”

The HBO star quoted BDS movement founder Omar Barghouti, who said, “No Palestinian — rational Palestinian, not a sellout Palestinian — will ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.”

“So that’s where that comes from, this movement. Someone who doesn’t even want a Jewish state at all,” Maher told the panel. “Somehow this side never gets represented in the American media. It’s very odd.”

Maher then noted how Saudi Arabia doesn’t let Jews into the kingdom and listed statistics of several Middle Eastern countries where the Jewish population had plummeted in recent years.

“And Congresswoman Omar has said things like, ‘It’s all about the Benjamins,’ ‘Israel has hypnotized the world,’ ‘May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.’ She apologized for it, but it’s out there,” Maher said.

“I see why they don’t get a hero’s welcome,” he added.

Colin Kaepernick’s girlfriend slams Jay-Z for NFL partnership

The girlfriend of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick blasted hip-hop star Jay-Z over his recently announced partnership with the NFL, calling it “disgusting and disappointing.”

“We will never turn our backs on @kaepernick7 because your idols decided to work with the same organization that is actively keeping Colin unemployed all because he peacefully protested against social injustice in black and brown communities, specifically police brutality,” radio personality Nessa wrote on Instagram Thursday night.

“So really, how can Jay-Z and the NFL utter social justice in their partnership while keeping Colin unemployed because of his social justice work?”

Earlier this week, the NFL announced that it is collaborating with Jay-Z’s entertainment company, Roc Nation, which will help select music artists for high-profile performances including the Super Bowl.

As part of the partnership, Roc Nation will have a role in the NFL’s “Inspire Change” campaign, which aims to strengthen social justice. However, the Grammy-winning rapper is facing backlash for his business deal after previously showing solidarity with Kaepernick. Kaepernick gained notoriety, and the scorn of figures including President Trump, for faking a knee during the national anthem to call attention to social injustice and police brutality in minority communities.

“It’s typical for the NFL to buy different PR looks to cover up their dirt- that’s nothing new. But what is disgusting and disappointing is Jay-Z let them use him,” Nessa told her Instagram followers. “Whether Jay-Z knew it or not (I don’t doubt his intelligence-so I would think he knew) he helped the NFL bury who he said is an iconic figure, Colin Kaepernick.”

She continued, “Don’t tell me there’s a “master plan and wait for it” because the ONLY reason anything would ever change is because THE PEOPLE are loud and clear and won’t let the league buy their loyalty with their disingenuous moves. The people are letting the league and anyone who works with them know that they aren’t buying the bs.”

The comments came as Kaepernick recently celebrated the three-year anniversary since he began kneeling during the anthem in order to protest police brutality.
