It's Snarkurday!

Ever since Leah Remini left Scientology in 2013, she has no more f**ks to give for that Cult, and she calls the cultists out at every opportunity.

Case in Point #1: when Leah’s show, Scientology and the Aftermath, recently won an Emmy and when she took the stage to accept, silent Scientologist Elizabeth Moss left the room. And Leah explained that since she’s escaped the cult, and was now a suppressive person, cultists cannot have anything to do with her. And so, when the press jumped on the Is-Lizzie-Moss-a-Scientologist bandwagon, she had to admit that, yes, she is, but doesn’t feel the need to share her, um, faith, in any other way than walking out of a room when a suppressive person is honored.

Case in Point #2: Leah outed Jada Pinkett-Smith, the Kelly Preston to Will Smith’s John Travolta, as a Scientologist:
“I know Jada’s in. I know Jada’s in. She’s been in Scientology a long time. I never saw Will there, but I saw Jada at the Celebrity Centre. [Will and Jada] opened up a Scientology school, and have since closed it. But Jada, I had seen her at the Scientology Celebrity Centre all the time.”
Will and Jada did open a school—which has since closed—but never acknowledged that Dianetics was one of the actual textbooks used there even though it was. And then Leah shared the story of the time that Tiny Tom Cruise made her, Will and Jada, and other guests play Hide-n-Seek in his mansion. Tom even made Leah be ‘it’ when she declined to play.

Leah also says Jada lied to Andy Cohen when he asked about that game:
“She was on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live a few weeks ago promoting her film [Girls Trip], and Andy said to her, ‘Have you read Leah Remini’s book?’ and he was like, ‘What was that whole thing about playing tag?’ and she said, ‘Oh, she lied.’ He goes, ‘Isn’t that weird, to play tag?’ and she goes, ‘No, the kids were there.’ That was untrue. Bullshit. There were no kids there. I was like, okay, alright, you’re gonna do that? More power to ya.”
Like I said, Leah Remini has no f**ks left to give when it comes to that cult and she’ll even come for Jada Kelly Preston Pinkett-Smith.
Last year Justin Bieber posted a picture on him alongside Marilyn Manson with the caption:
“Night out with the boys.”
Well, maybe not so much, because Marilyn isn’t feeling the ALLEGED bromance and now that he’s out promoting his new music, Manson gave several interviews where he outed Bieber as a Little Brat:
“I ran into him in some fancy bar where a lot of celebrities—a word that I despise—go. I saw a little girl in a pink hoodie with blond hair, and it turns out to be Bieber. I sit down, and I say, ‘Hey, so you wore my shirt and everything onstage.’ He was one of those touchy people that hit you when they talk, and he comes up to about dick height. Then he goes, ‘I made you relevant again.'”
Well Marilyn was not happy about the ‘made you relevant again’ business, and the t-shirt thing—the front had Manson’s picture on it, but the back said “BIEBER”—that Biebs was hawking for $195 a pop, and he threatened to sue until Justin’s team told him that he could have all the proceeds from the shirt. Manson then explained that he wouldn’t have taken the money if Justin hadn’t acted like such a little brat”:
“He was a real piece of shit in the way he had the arrogance to say that.”
And so what do child-like rock stars do when they are dissed by child-like pop stars? Exact a little child-like revenge:
“The next day I told him I’d be at his soundcheck at Staples Center to do Beautiful People.”
And then he never showed up. Seriously? I mean, I like Manson calling Bieber out on his bratitude, but this I’m’a-be-there-now-I’m-not stuff is stupid.
Martha Stewart is continuing her passive aggressive feud with Gwyneth Paltrow and she’s channeling Mariah Carey to do it.

Y’all remember, years back, when Mimi was asked about JLo and she responded with “I don’t know her,” right? Well, Martha was on Watch What Happens recently and when a caller asked:
“Are the rumors true that you are happy that Goop is having deceptive health issue claims?”
And Martha replied:
“Who’s Goop?”
And you just know it sent Gwyneth’s minions searching for a passive aggressive way to get back at Martha, like the time Martha dogged Gwyneth about the “conscious uncoupling” and the kids at Goop posted a recipe for “jailbird cake.”

Children. Play nice.

Jada Pinkett-Smith does not like that Leah Remini called her a Scientologist and instead of simply denying it, or saying nothing, Jada pulled a _____-like Tweet-storm at 3AM to clear the air; it went like this:
“I recently lit Shabbat candles with Rabbi Bentley at Temple Sinai... but I am not Jewish.”
And this:
“I have prayed in mosques all over the world... but I am not a Muslim.”
And this:
“I have read the Bhagavad Gita... but I am not a Hindu.”
And this:
“I have chanted and meditated in some of the most magnificent temples on earth… but I am not a Buddhist.”
And this:
“I have studied Dianetics, and appreciate the merits of Study Tech… but I am not a Scientologist.”
And this:
“I practice human kindness, and I believe that we each have the right to determine what we are and what we are not.”
And this:
“NO ONE ELSE can hold that power.”
Methinks the Scientologist doth protest too much.
Feud Alert:

Jeffrey Mezger, the CEO and chairman of KB Home, was caught on tape hurling homophobic slurs and profanities at his neighbor, Randy Bick, and his girlfriend, Kathy Griffin, so you just know it became a thang!!

Jeffrey was caught on security cameras saying:
“Hey Randy, go f**k yourself. You’re stuck with a f**king bald dyke who Donald _____ kind of put the heat on. F**k you and f**k Kathy. You’re not our f**king neighbor, you’re a f**king asshole.”
The rant was over noise; noise! It seems Mezger’s grandchildren had been swimming in the pool at his home when the police showed up on his doorstep to register a noise complaint; Mezger instantly went after Bick and, by association, Griffin.
“Seriously? You call on my grandkids at 9 o’clock? You’re not even the f**king owner! Let’s declare war, asshole, ’cause we got a lot to go for. Let’s bring it on, you bitch.”
Bick says he made the noise complaint after enduring hours of excessive party noise coming from Mezger’s yard. He admitted to hearing kids, but said there were adults who were being loud as well. And, while speaking to officers, Bick said his security cameras caught the audio of Mezger’s profanity-laden tirade and you can hear Kathy in the background, while taking notes so she can pout this latest feud into her act:
“Randy, what’s happening?”
And Mezger yells back:
“If you’re asking Randy what’s happening, he called the cops on my 5-year-old granddaughter, you f**king c**t! Bullsh*t—9 o’clock at night—oh, this party’s loud, this party’s really happening. F**k you. I’ve done enough trying to be a nice partner—f**k you, neighbor. War’s happening. Don’t wait until we’re gonna bring some things on you. Now f**k you.”
Mezger, who was once named “most admired homebuilder” by Fortune magazine, has been the CEO of KB Home since 2006.

I may be wrong, but I think the KB in KB Home might stand for Kill [a] Bitch?

And so, naturally, when the tape went viral, Mezger had his team release the non-apology, this is not me, statement:
“Mr. Mezger regrets losing his temper over a supposed noise complaint involving his three young grandchildren in his swimming pool around 8 p.m. on Saturday, while they were being supervised by their mother and grandmother. He apologizes for the language he used, as it does not reflect who he is or what he believes.”
Mad this may not end, because this was started about a year ago, right when Griffin and Bick moved in to Mezger’s gated community.

Homeowners association logs show a long history of noise complaints filed by Bick—at least five—with some being filed almost immediately after the couple arrived. Mezger denies ever throwing loud parties and says if there is noise, it’s coming from children ... as if that makes it any less noisy?

No, it does not, but I guess rather than walking across the lawn and politely asking people to keep it down, Bick and Griffin call the law, and Kill [a] Bitch goes apesh*t.

It’s well-known that Barbra Streisand only wants to be filmed or photographed from her “good side” ... and that includes when she appears at a charity event.

The diva joined other celebrities—Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake, Kerry Washington and Diddy—at the “Hand in Hand” relief benefit in LA last week, but made sure photographers shot her best side ... her left side.

In fact, Babs actually walked the red carpet backwards—heading toward the door and not the event site—just so she’d only have her left side available for pictures.

Streisand is famous for insisting on being shot from the left; she even swapped seats with Fallon as a guest on his “Tonight Show” and did the same when she appeared on Oprah years back. On Oprah she even wanted to have a microphone that matched the color of her outfit.

Whatever diva wants ...
I love Kelly Clarkson, and not just because she has a fabulous voice and can sing just about anything, but because she has a back bone.

Kelly was one of the first celebrities to come out and support Kesha in her ALLEGATIONS of sexual misconduct and bullying by music producer Dr. Luke. But Kelly wasn’t just talking; she’d had her own experiences working with him, though she wasn’t sexually harassed, but says he was “difficult to work with” and “kind of demeaning.” 

In fact, Kelly was so disgusted at being forced by her record label, RCA, to work with Luke that she refused a song writing credit for My Life Would Suck Without You because she didn’t want her name next to his.

Doesn’t sound like much, really, until you realize that by removing her name from the song, she removed herself from any royalties the song would ever produce ... a number that could be in the millions:
“I was making a point to the people working with me, going, ‘This is how much I didn’t want to do this.’ I don’t care about the money. I don’t care about, oh, ‘You’re going to be the most famous person ever if you do this.’ That’s not what holds weight in my life.”
Clarkson ALLEGES that RCA vowed not to release her album if she did not work with Dr. Luke:
“Basically, they were gonna sit on my record unless I did what they wanted. I was so frustrated because I literally said, ‘Anyone in the world but this one person. I will work with anyone you want to put in my path.’ ... It was just this one thing, and I asked not to work with Dr. Luke just because I had not a good experience with him ... You have to really be a special kind of … for me not to like you.”
And so she did it, under force, but when the time came to add her name to the tune, she said:
“I don’t want my name near his. I want to pretend this didn’t happen in my life and I want to forget it.’”
Good for her.

PS Another reason to love Kelly ... over the 4th of July holiday this past summer, she sent out a Tweet in support of our overseas troops and someone responded with this:
"You're fat."
Kelly instantly replied:
"And yet ... still f**king awesome!"
Loved that one!

PR 16 Ep 6: Model Clients ... Not So Model Designers

Model’s have a hard life. No, really; they have to watch what they eat and stay in shape so they can work. And now that models—thanks to social media—are also celebrities, they must also be aware of how they present themselves to world each day.

And, designing for a model has to be tough, too, since they know what works on their body, what they like and dislike.

All that will make this a tough week, maybe? See, this week not only are the designers creating looks for the model to wear, the model is also the client, and so she needs to be satisfied as well; she is not, as Amy said, just a coat-hanger.

The designtestants meet Tim atop a Brooklyn rooftop, if for no other reason than it’s a rooftop, I guess, and he spills the beans about this week’s challenge: to create a street style look that the models can post on social media to boost their careers.

Then the models pick their designers: Jazzmine selects Samantha; Meisha picks her Japanese buddy Kentaro; Sanita chooses Kenya; Christina pairs with Margarita. Colleen picks Brandon; Liris chooses Michael; Marsha goes for Amy; Monique chooses Batani. Lena selects Ayana.

Claire and Shawn are not being picked; well, at least Bottom Claire, because Shawn gets picked before her, by Janine, and finally the last model standing, Sian, gets Claire, and she acts like it was meant to be.

The designtestants and their model-clients then take a stroll through Brooklyn and toss about ideas before heading off to Mood with $200 and one day to work.

Let’s rip ...
Clockwise from top left
AMY I like it; well, I like the reversible jacket; the rest is just a basic Little Black Dress.

AYANA I hate to agree with Shawn, but that pink thing does look like  a bathrobe. And, I’m with Tim about the stars! Why??

BATANI Her client, Monique, wanted African prints and Batani really gave it to her ... and not, in my mind, in a good way. It’s literally too literal.

MICHAEL I like the technique he used to create the slits in the fabric, but, in the end, it’s just a nice dress with slits.

BRANDON He vowed to give us something different and yet we got another wide-legged pant and cropped top, layered upon layered look with straps. I like it, but ... c’mon!
Her client is Jazzmine, whose fashion sense is Grunge-Glam and Samantha, whose style is something called Lolita—modest but edgy—thinks they’ll have this. Sadly, every time Samantha thinks she “has it” she doesn’t.

When Tim sees the look, along with Jazzmine, he likes it, though Jazzmine seems worried it might read too Goth, and not as Glam. But Samantha soldiers on, and at one point, even suggests to the room that she might keep the look she’s making and give Jazzmine something from her own closet.

Uh oh.

It’s an equal balance of cute and tough.

I don’t know from Lolita, but this reads a bit too Little Girl Goth to me.

Guest judge, The Beautiful Georgina Chapman™ starts off saying the look is verging on costume; it’s not fresh or modern, and she feels Samantha needs a bigger voice.

Zac Posen says it’s too literal Lolita, too one-note, and he’d like a more runway version of it.
Guest judge, singer Kelsea Ballerini likes it without the vest and loves the work and the details.

Heidi Klum also loves the details, the lace and corset and straps, oh my, that went into the piece.

Nina Garcia, however, once again wanted what Samantha’s wearing because it has a presence on the runway.

But the best part is when Zac notes all the layers and Heidi asks why; he explains that the layers become evident when the model sits, but Heidi again wonders why, since models don’t sit on the runway. Nina stops them all with:
“She could be standing on her head and it would have no effect. I really could care less about this look.”
Bam! Mean Garcia strikes again!
She is not at all bothered at being picked last because this will be a week of redemption ... with a sweatshirt and jogging pants in basic black. No ... seriously. Now, to be fair, her client, Sian, wants something comfy, but aren’t there other options besides an oversized sweatshirt?

Tim and Sian do like the direction Claire is headed, though when she suggests putting some words on the garment—Twins Rule? Somebody Save Me From My Sister? I Have No Real Talent?—Tim puts the kibosh on that at once. 

What he cannot stop is Claire stopping her own work because Shawn needs help with a pocket or a measurement or a stitch or a stroke of her massive ego. In fact, Claire spends so much time helping her sister, that she cannot make jogging pants and instead gives Sian short ... short  ... shorts.

Sian is rocking this look ... she’s strong and confident.

Basic boring black and blue with butt cheeks.

Nina Garcia liked the idea of sportswear, but thought it was missing a pop of color and said it photographed like a black blob; she’s also seen it before and before and before.

Zac Posen reminded us all that social media is the public’s form of editorial—go figure—and this look, while well-executed, was making no fashion statement.

Heidi Klum said the look did nothing for the model’s figure, though she liked the top ... up close.

Kelsea Ballerini stayed positive and said she liked the top.

The Beautiful Georgina Chapman™ said if you’re doing all black, then the silhouette is very important, and this silhouette gave the model no waist and made her look pregnant—which isn’t good when you’re not pregnant.

At the Up Close Look, Tim tells the judges that Claire wanted pants, but spent so much time helping Shawn craft her look that she could only make the shorts; while this isn’t against a rule, Zac doesn’t like it, but Kelsea made a good point, though, that Claire could have, and should have, told Shawn ‘No’.
Kenya’s girl, Sanita, wants something simple and sleek, and Kenya thinks menswear. Then she also thinks emerald green fabrics and a Dalmation print, so I don’t know if that’s where this went off the rails for me but it seems like a good start.

When Tim and Sanita come by for a look and a fitting, Tim calls the emerald “a lot” and worries that Sanita will look like a “green bean.” Of course, Kenya spins out because she doesn’t know how to fix it and all she has is green fabrics and the Puppy Print.

She looks great ... sophisticated.

She looks like Cruella DeVil after being arrested and forced to pick up garbage along the highway in a green prison jumpsuit.

Zac Posen calls it “Debbie Harry meets Peter Pan meets 101 Dalmatians” ... and he likes it.

The Beautiful Georgina Chapman™ says it has an ease and a confidence, and is both strong and quirky.

Kelsea Ballerini calls it stunning and says the model has legs for days.

Nina Garcia believes it looks mysterious, chic, retro, French.

Heidi loves the green and the petals, but isn’t a fan of the print.
Shawn likes what her model, Janine, has on at their consult, and Shawn likes what she’s wearing, so she basically takes her look and the model’s look and makes another version in the same colors and very similar fabrics; yes, she is that talented ... and that was sarcasm in case you missed it.

Tim also notes that the look is very similar to what Shawn is wearing, but lets it end there because Shawn needs to get busy having Claire do a vast majority of her work, from opinions and thoughts to actual cutting and sewing.

I’m in awe ... she looks so confident ... effortless ...easy.

Um, yeah, because she’s wearing basically what she wore the day before.

Zac Posen points out that the pants look slick—thanks to Claire, no doubt, though Shawn says nothing—and loves that the look can got day to night.

Heidi Klum thinks it’s fantastic, and notes that this all black number works better than Claire’s black hot mess.

Nina Garcia says feminine and pretty always sell, and she loved the bow detail on the back—which Shawn actually may have done.

Kelsea also likes the bows and calls the look adorable.

The Beautiful Georgina Chapman™ says it has an elegance and an ease.  I think Claire did that, too.
Meisha selects Kentaro mainly because they both speak Japanese, but that provided a good jumping off point for them. Kentaro wanted to make something that reflected both Japanese and American styles: a Kimono style short over denim pants, with a sexy crop top.

Tim loves how they are meshing their ideas together to create a look that represents them both. There are no problems with this look, though Kentaro says something about the top looking like ... and I think this is what he said ... mayonnaise; even Michael thought he said mayo.

Meisha looks great because she has natural beauty ... edgy and beautiful.

It’s cool and urban and sexy and modern and different. I.Love.It.

Heidi Klum called it the coolest look on the runway, and loved the shorts over the jeans.

The Beautiful Georgina Chapman™ called it samurai dangerous, and both masculine and feminine. She says it has a personality and a direction.

Nina Garcia called it haphazard in a way that works.

Zac Posen called it crisp and easy and loved the draping of the top. Up close, though, he noted that the jeans weren’t pants at all, but just leggings, and all the judges agreed that was a great choice.
Christina picked her, and since they are both Latina and both had the same sense of style and flair, this was a match made in heaven ... at least until the runway.

When Christina said her style inspiration was Aaliyah. Margarita loved it ... loved it ... and ran with it. She went for baggy, saggy white pants, a tight, barely there halter top, and a bomber jacket. It was a lot, and she was worried, but Tim could see that both women ... both women ... loved the idea and o he urged Margarita to “make it work.”

She looks hella cool.

She’s a Fly Girl from In Living Color ... Google it youngun’s.

Kelsea Ballerini loved the jacket but was indifferent about the pants; Margarita said she made the pants her client wanted even though she wasn’t a fan ... huh, what?

Zac Posen then dubbed Christina a “picky” client, and said he hated the fit on the pants ... a woman’s crotch made him uneasy ... go figure. Margarita missed her second chance to say she was behind the look, huh ... what?

Heidi Klum called it cheesy and not modern, and said it looked like a back-up dancer; Margarita nodded ... huh ... what?

Nina Garcia loved the jacket but felt the look was too Miami ... which is a bad thing I guess ... ?

The Beautiful Georgina Chapman™ loved the street style but said she thought Margarita had no voice ... unless it was throwing her client under the bus. She also said it was dated dated dated; three times as bad, you know.
Well, it’s a no-brainer that Kentaro won;; I loved his shock when Heidi asked if he thought he was in the Top or Bottom and he said Top, and giggled when she agreed. This was a surefire win.

Now, I think Margarita should have gone for her silly look that wasn’t really fashion ... or Claire should have gone for The Blob and then we could have seen how Shawn flails next week having to do her own work.

But, in the end, Samantha’s Lolita was crushed and Auf’d.

I am over Claire helping Shawn and Shawn being such a demanding bitch. I want a Claire-Shawn Meltdown-Bitchfest-Smackdown, please? Otherwise, just send them both home because they bug me.

That said, why aren’t the other designers calling them out on the runway? Stop being so nice! This is reality TV and in reality people aren’t nice ... are they?

I loved Brandon’s nervous little giggle when asked if he had a crush on any model; he really is adorable. That said, when he got the call home, and then didn’t really step out of his comfort zone in his look, I was worried there’d be repercussions ... even if he has immunity.

“I’m kinda like Beyoncé in concert, but on the street.”
Beyoncé should be so fierce!

Kentaro, to his model:
“I wanna make you look dirty ... homeless ... but clean, modern, beautiful homeless.”
Now that would be a look ...

Kenya, on starting her look over:
“If I even think about it, or even try to recreate something right now, I won’t get finished. We don’t all have a sister on Project Runway.”
Ding.Ding.Ding. We have a winner.

I fear for Margarita since she threw Christina under the bus and acted like she didn’t want to design what she designed. Christina was pissed at the critiques and if she and Margarita work together again, it might just go south.

I loved having The Beautiful Georgina Chapman™; I lovelovelove her. That said, why a singer as a judge? I mean, they didn’t even suggest she had a fashion line or blog and what she was wearing was bo-ring.

And Kentaro asking if saying “African look” is racist was kinda everything.

So, The Tents? Brandon and Kentaro. Kenya redeemed herself, at least to the judges if not to me. The Twins? Not if there is any justice left in this world at all! Batani? Maybe. Amy? She needs a win because she’s going unnoticed as hell. Michael also needs another Top Look, as does Ayana. Margarita may have reached her pinnacle ... which is really a tiny pebble about a quarter way up the hill, so she should go soon.

Brandon, Kentaro, Kenya, and Michael are who I want to see.

Next week, a duo challenge with the Twins on one team. And so, I’m’a need someone to step up and call out the bull shiz!

What did YOU think?

I Didn't Say It ...

Donald _____, at one of his ego-boosting rallies in Florida the day after first responders removed eight dead bodies from a nursing home:

“It was such a small number [of dead people] that nobody would have — people thought thousands and thousands of people may have had their lives ended. And the number is a very small number, which is a great tribute to you.”

There were some 33 storm-related deaths, damage estimates run as high as $100 billion, and, as he spoke some 2.7 million Floridians were still without power. But hey it’s all great!
Oh, and by the way, earlier this year ____ requested massive cuts to FEMA’s disaster relief fund so he could pay for that wall that we aren’t supposed to be paying for.
Lady Gaga, on Madonna ... again:

“The thing with me and Madonna is that I admired her always and still admire her, no matter what she might think of me. The only thing that really bothers me about her is [that] I’m Italian and from New York, so if I have a problem with somebody, I’m gonna tell you to your face. She wouldn’t look me in the eye and tell me I’m reductive [Madonna’s ‘pet phrase for Gaga]. I just want Madonna to push me up against the wall and kiss me and tell me I’m a piece of shit.”

Madonna is reductive. That’s all.
Ivanka _____, on her ‘job’ and why she never disagrees with Daddy:

“To voice dissent publicly would mean I’m not part of the team. When you’re part of a team, you’re part of a team. That doesn’t mean everyone in the White House has homogeneous views – we don’t, and I think that’s good and healthy – but that doesn’t mean we’re publicly undermining [each other] and this administration. ... Some people have created unrealistic expectations of what they expect from me. That my presence in and of itself would carry so much weight with my father that he would abandon his core values and the agenda that the American people voted for when they elected him. It’s not going to happen. To those critics, shy of turning my father into a liberal, I’d be a failure to them. Whether my contribution ultimately lives up to the expectations of some of the harshest critics? Only time will tell. But I will not be distracted by the noise.”

Um, Ivanka, you idiot. Voicing your opinion, even if it differs from your white supremacist father, isn’t a bad thing. It shows you have a spine—which you don’t—and shows you are willing to stand for something—you don’t—and fight for something—you don’t—that isn’t just a little whim of Daddy’s.
And to reiterate because you, like your Dimbulb Daddy, forget: the American people, a majority if us, voted for Hillary Clinton.
You’re a hypocrite, and a panderer, and a goose-stepper and an accomplice. That’s your legacy.
Dianne Feinstein, Democratic California Senator, on _____’s reTweet of a video which depicted him violently striking Hillary Clinton with a golf ball:

“The president’s Sunday morning tweet of a video depicting an attack on Hillary Clinton is appalling and disgusting. He continues to obsessively lash out at her — at his rallies, with his words and now through social media — in a manner that is utterly unbecoming of the president of the United States. Every one of us should be offended by the vindictive and candidly dangerous messages that demean not only Secretary Clinton but all women. Grow up and do your job.”

Grow up? Like that’ll ever happen.
Oh, and Melania? This should be the first stop on your ALLEGED anti-bullying campaign.
Jimmy Kimmel, calling out Senator Bill Cassidy and the deception and hypocrisy of Republicans who are trying to pass another bill to repeal and replace Obamacare—Cassidy actually promised Kimmel that a new bill would have to pass the “Kimmel test”:

“This new bill actually does pass ‘the Jimmy Kimmel Test’ – but a different ‘Jimmy Kimmel Test.’ In this one, your child with a pre-existing condition will get the care he needs if, and only if, his father is Jimmy Kimmel. Otherwise you might be screwed. Now I don’t know what happened to Bill Cassidy, but when he was on this publicity tour, he listed his demands for a health care bill very clearly. [N]ot only did Bill Cassidy fail the Jimmy Kimmel test, he failed the Bill Cassidy test. He failed his own test and you don’t see that happen very much. This bill they came up with is actually worse than the one that, thank God, Republicans like Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski and John McCain torpedoed over the summer. Health care is complicated. It’s boring. I don’t want to talk about it. The details are confusing. And that’s what these guys are relying on. They’re counting on you to be so overwhelmed with all the information, you just trust them to take care of you. But they’re not taking care of you, they’re taking care of the people who give them money, like insurance companies. And we’re all just looking at our Instagram accounts and liking things while they’re voting on whether people can afford to keep their children alive or not. Most of the congresspeople who vote on this bill probably won’t even read it. And they want us to do the same thing. They want us to treat it like an iTunes service agreement. And this guy, Bill Cassidy, just lied right to my face.”

Of course he did, because it’s not about healthcare at all, because if it was they’d come up with a better plan first, and the repeal and replace.
This is about dismantling Obama’s legacy because he’s a black man.
Ellen DeGeneres, saying she will never have “President” _____ on her show:

“You know, he is who he is, and he has enough attention, and he has his Twitter account and he has ways to get his message across … and I don’t want to give him a platform because it just validates him. I think he’s dangerous for me, personally as a gay woman, and for the country and world at large. He is dividing all of us, and I think, I just don’t want him on the show.” 

What Ellen said.
