Meghan McCain won’t be gaslit. The conservative co-host of ‘The View’ spoke out against her fellow Republicans who see nothing wrong with the aftermath of the Capitol Hill insurrection.

The View co-host Meghan McCain is a vocal, ardent Republican. But she’s not standing with the members of her party who think Donald Trump did no wrong after his followers stormed Capitol Hill on January 6. “To all the Republicans who think it’s going well over here in DC — there are more American troops present in this city than Iraq and Afghanistan,” Meghan tweeted on January 13. “What is this, Moscow?! Stop defending this — I’m not going to be gaslit. This is insane.”

— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) January 13, 2021

Meghan is currently living in DC with her husband, conservative writer Ben Domenech, and their newborn daughter, Liberty, so she is seeing this first hand. Her tweet comes after shocking photos circulated showing hundreds of National Guardsmen napping on the marble floors of the Capitol building, including the iconic Statuary Hall and the visitor center. National Guards troops were sent into DC in the wake of the insurrection to squash further riots.

“One for the history books. We haven’t seen this in over 160 years, since the Civil War,” one soldier resting at the Capitol was overheard saying to his friend by a reporter. Some congressional members brought in pizzas to feed the hungry troops as they went inside to debate potentially impeaching President Trump. They are expected to vote in the House of Representatives on the afternoon of January 13.

Meghan, the daughter of late GOP Senator John McCain, is passionate about her politics and doesn’t shy away from voicing her opinion — especially on The View, where she’s often the only conservative voice in the room. But she’s no Trump supporter. Meghan vehemently condemned Trump on The View after the riot, saying that she absolutely supported him being removed from office, or impeached. “The bedrock of who we are as a country is the peaceful transition of power, and he is clearly a president who has turned into a mad king,” Meghan said. “And at this point I am calling on all Republicans and Conservatives who still have clout: we have to invoke the 25th Amendment.

“We cannot withstand this. The country cannot go on like this.” She added a scathing message to the rioters: “You are not patriots. You do not represent America. You are scum of the earth who are using and abusing and bastardizing all that I love and have grown up with for your own sick agenda. And that agenda has directly been sent by President Trump.”

Hailey Baldwin and Kendall Jenner looked so fierce posing for new campaign photos for Versace’s spring/summer 2021 collection! See the young models working their looks!

Hailey Baldwin and Kendall Jenner couldn’t have looked better in new photos for Versace‘s spring/summer 2021 show at Milan Fashion Week. The nautical theme was front and center for the photo shoot, featuring the aforementioned models, as well as Precious Lee. Hailey and Kendall perfectly executed the under-water look that Donatella Versace envisioned, and the series of photos were truly breathtaking. Although both of them were striking, Hailey had one photo that was truly jaw-dropping.

Hailey, 24, looked like a true sea princess. The model wore a bodice top featuring gold cupping and details of yellow, orange and blue that mimicked waves. Hailey’s dampened hair covered parts of her face, accentuating the mysteriousness and under-water vibe of the shoot. This particular look featured Hailey without wearing any bottoms, covering herself with the Versace lilac purse that she was modeling.

She was poised in a black corset bodice, which complimented the black bag with gold embellishment. Kendall’s hair was styled the same way as Hailey’s, featuring the allusion of dampened hair covering parts of the model’s face. The unique looks were thanks to the impeccable artistry and craft of Paul Hanlon styling hair, Lucia Pieroni on makeup, and Jacob K styling the two women on behalf of Versace.

She also wore a corset, which had starfish of varying colors and sizes designed on the bodice. In Hailey’s hand was a lilac Versace bag with a chunky yellow chain.

The two ladies joined Precious Lee as the faces of Versace’s spring and summer 2021 styles. The looks, much like Versace’s theme, are completely unique and show off Versace’s pieces perfectly. Milan Fashion Week begins on February 23 and runs to March 1. We cannot wait to see what else these gorgeous ladies fashion in the months ahead.

Donald Trump Impeached By House For 2nd Time After Capitol Hill Insurrection

The House of Representatives has, for the second time, impeached President Donald Trump. Trump was charged with one article of ‘incitement of insurrection’ for his role in the Capitol Hill riot.

For the first time in United States history, a sitting president has been impeached twice. President Donald Trump, 75, was impeached by the House of Representatives on January 13 on one article of “incitement of insurrection” following the January 6 siege on Capitol Hill that left five people dead. The impeachment ruling now heads to Senate, where senators will potentially vote to convict Trump, removing him from office.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made good on her word that the House would pursue impeachment if Vice President Mike Pence didn’t agree to remove Trump from office via the 25th Amendment by Wednesday, January 13. “In protecting our Constitution and our Democracy, we will act with urgency, because this President represents an imminent threat to both. As the days go by, the horror of the ongoing assault on our democracy perpetrated by this President is intensified and so is the immediate need for action,” Pelosi said in a letter to Democratic colleagues on January 10.

Pence said in a letter to Pelosi on January 12 that he believed invoking the 25th Amendment would not be in the best interest of our Nation or consistent with our Constitution.” He accused the House of attempting to “play political games.” That same day, Trump refused to take responsibility for any part of the insurrection despite telling his supporters to “fight like hell” and march to the Capitol minutes beforehand.

“If you read my speech — and many people have done it, and I’ve seen it both in the papers and in the media, on television — it’s been analyzed, and people thought that what I said was totally appropriate,” Trump told reporters at Joint Base Andrews, en route to Alamo, Texas. This, of course, is another lie out of the mouth of the president. He also issued what sounded like a disturbing warning to President-elect Joe Biden while surveying the border wall in Alamo:

““The 25th Amendment is of zero risk to me but will come back to haunt Joe Biden and the Biden administration – as the expression goes, be careful what you wish for. The impeachment hoax is a continuation of the greatest and most vicious witch hunt is causing tremendous anger and division and pain far greater than what most people will ever understand. Which is very dangerous for the USA, especially at this very tender time.”

On January 6, insurgents marched straight from a pro-Trump rally, where they heard an inflammatory speech from the president himself, and attempted to overthrow the Capitol. Hundreds of rioters busted through barriers outside the building and attacked Capitol Police officers standing in their way. Disturbing footage from the insurrection shows rioters climbing the walls and smashing windows, knocking down doors, and running through the hallways with Confederate flags and Nazi propaganda — and red MAGA caps.

Inside, a joint session of Congress was in their chambers counting Biden’s Electoral College votes in order to officially declare him the president-elect. Some insurgents were carrying zip ties, implying the intent to take hostages. Others set up gallows outside the building and said they were there to hang Vice President Pence, whom Trump had just condemned for not overturning Biden’s victory — a power Pence does not have. Congress narrowly escaped before insurgents burst into the chambers.

Five people, including a Capitol Police officer, died in the attack. As of January 13, over 150 case files were opened in regards to the Capitol rioters, and 70 people charged, according to Michael Sherwin, the DC District Attorney. The misdemeanor charges filed so far are “just the beginning,” he said in a statement, adding that officials are also looking at “significant felony cases” of sedition and conspiracy.

This is, of course, the second time President Trump has been impeached, in just over one year. Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives in December 2019 on two articles: “obstruction of Congress” and “abuse of power.” The charges came after Trump engaged in a quid pro quo arrangement with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Trump urged Zelensky to dig up dirt on Biden, his 2020 election rival, as well as his son, Hunter Biden. In exchange, Trump implied that the United States would give substantial aid to Ukraine.

Only two other presidents have been impeached in United States history: Andrew Johnson in 1868, and Bill Clinton in 1998. Neither were convicted. This story is still developing. HollywoodLife will provide updates as more information becomes available.

Days after confirming his romance with Lori Harvey, ‘Black Panther’ star Michael B. Jordan dropped a very flirty comment on her IG snap.

Michael B. Jordan, 33, is putting his love for new flame Lori Harvey, 24, on display. The Black Panther star commented on her latest Instagram post — which you can see here — proving the pair are certainly going strong. “Gimmie!! Sheeesh!! Happy Birthday Turtle!!” he commented on her January 13 Instagram photo, which showed her dipping her fingers into a vanilla birthday cake. “Thank you nugget,” she replied, adding the tongue emoji. Hundreds of friends and fans alike jumped into the comments section to wish her a happy 24th birthday, including supermodel Ashley Graham. “HappyBirthdayLori,” she wrote.

It comes just a couple of days after the pair made their relationship Instagram official. Lori shared a picture of Michael kissing her on the cheek on January 10, confirming what many fans had already suspected. A source close to the new couple revealed why they made their relationship public. “Lori decided to post Michael because it was something he wanted,” the source told HollywoodLife, “so she followed his lead. She’s very happy that he wanted to let the world know she’s his.”

“She’d never post first, but she is happy that he wanted to make it Instagram official,” the insider continued. “He’s proud to be dating her, and she feels the same way about him. It’s very balanced. So far, this does seem like the best relationship she’s ever had because he’s just such a good guy. Her family’s so happy. They really support this relationship, [and]  so far they are very impressed with him.”

A second source also spoke to HL, revealing Lori’s friends are totally on board with the new romance. They “can tell that she feels different about Michael than she has about any other guy she’s dated in a long time. Michael is on a whole other level, and they have this connection that is unreal. Lori is playing it cool with Michael because she doesn’t want to show all her cards too soon, but it’s obvious to those that know her that she really, really likes him. She can’t stop smiling around him, and she talks about him all the time to her inner circle.”

Summer may be long gone, but celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian are all about rocking cutout swimsuits any time of year. Just look at Kylie this vintage Dolce & Gabbana set!

Celebrities love rocking all different kinds of styles and trends when it comes to their swimsuits. Over the last few years, the sexiness has been taken up a notch when it comes to bathing suit style, and cutouts have played a part in that. Whether it’s a bikini with some fabric cut out on the sides, or a one piece with various chunks of fabric missing, these stars have slayed the cutout swimsuit trend!

Kylie Jenner, 23, rocked a unique cutout bikini in a 2005 Dolce & Gabbana set with sultry wrap ties in an Instagram post shared on Jan. 12, 2021, as you can see above. Kylie was promoting Kylie Skin’s new $20 hair drying towel, making it look as though Kylie had just emerged from a resort spa in her luxurious bikini.

Kylie rocked another one-of-a-kind swimsuit during a day by the pool at her $36,000,000 mansion in Nov. 2020, which you can see below. The Kylie Cosmetics mogul posed in a grey velvet monokini while basking in the Los Angeles sunshine, which featured a large cutout over her abdomen and an extremely high cut on the sides. If it weren’t for the thin, velvet straps, this would basically just be a bikini. Kylie was still wearing her honey blonde, Rapunzel-length extensions that she debuted in early November 2020.

The Kardashian-Jenner sisters in particular, can’t get enough of flaunting their famous curves in bathing suits that allow them to show off their hard-earned bodies. Kourtney Kardashian, 41, is a lover of the fabulous cutout look. She rocked an orange and tan two-piece while hitting the beach for a stroll. The bikini featured cutouts on both the bottom and top, with plenty of fabric left to cover the necessary areas.

Lindsey Vonn rocked a similar white look while spending time on a yacht. Her white swimsuit featured major cutouts all the way down both sides, which allowed for a complete open back look. The bathing suit was held together with nothing but some thick white fabric across the bottom, and Lindsey rocked it fiercely and confidently.

Sailor Lee Brinkley-Cook, 22, proved that cutout swimsuits also work well with animal prints! Christie Brinkley‘s mini me rocked a one-piece, cheetah print piece for a tropical getaway at Turks and Caicos in Jan. 2021, and the cutouts in the front made this an especially chic vacation suit.

Selena Gomez, 27, has been known to be a fan of cut-out swimsuits, as well. She wore a black one piece with a strip of fabric up her torso and nude panels up the sides while on vacay in Mexico several years ago. Ciara rocked a gorgeous yellow one piece with a giant cutout panel to flash her flat abs while taking in some pool time in 2015.

Even superstar Beyonce is a fan of the look. When she famously went vegan in 2015, she showed off the results in a black one piece with colorful patterns and two massive side cut-outs to show off her super trim waist. There are plenty of more where these came from, though! Scroll through the gallery above to check out more stars in cutout swimsuits.

Bruce Willis issued a regretful statement, after reportedly making people upset in a Los Angeles pharmacy for not wearing a mask. ‘The Sixth Sense’ star was wearing a bandanna around his neck.

UPDATE (1/13/2021, 0:50am ET): Bruce Willis has reacted to viral photograph of himself not wearing a mask in a Rite Aid in Los Angeles on Jan. 10, calling it an “error in judgement” in a statement that he gave PEOPLE two days later. The Die Hard star didn’t offer much else of an explanation. Instead, he simply added, “Be safe out there everyone and let’s continue to mask up.”

ORIGINALBruce Willis, 65, visited a Rite Aid in Los Angeles, CA on Jan. 10 and refused to wear a mask to protect himself and other from the coronavirus pandemic, according to Page Six. The actor was apparently wearing a bandanna around his neck during the outing and got people in the store upset when he didn’t lift it and put it over his mouth after being asked to. The situation led to him walking out of the store without making a purchase, the outlet further reported.

Bruce’s headline-making pharmacy incident comes after he’s spent much of the pandemic quarantined at his family’s Idaho home with ex-wife Demi Moore, 58, and their children Rumer, 32, Scout, 29, and Tallulah, 26. Rumors that Bruce’s marriage with wife Emma Heming, 42, was on the rocks began after she decided to not join them in Idaho and stay in Los Angeles with their kids Mabel, 8, and Evelyn, 6, but Scout later put the rumors to rest when she revealed there was a reason Emma stayed in LA.

Scout claimed that one of her half-sisters stepped on a hypodermic needle in a local park and had to wait for test results. “My stepmom had to be in LA waiting to get the results from taking her to the doctor,” Scout said. “So, my dad came up here and then travel got crazy so my stepmom stayed in LA with my little sisters.”

A post shared by Demi Moore (@demimoore)

After sharing quarantine photos without Emma and Bruce’s two youngest children, Demi took to her Instagram in May 2020 to share a large group photo that included them outside their Idaho home. “Family photo shoot #bts… social distancing style,” she captioned the epic snapshot. Just days before that, Rumer also took to Instagram to share a video of the family, including her mom, who was married to Bruce from 1987 until 2000, celebrating Evelyn’s 6th birthday.

In the clip, Bruce, Emma and Demi are all cheering Evelyn on together, proving they have no problem getting along. Demi was also just as excited as everyone else, and it was a delightful sight to see. Since Bruce and Demi are known for spending time together as friends, we look forward to seeing what other large and happy family gatherings they have later in the year!

Rebel Wilson Reveals The Extensive Lengths She Went To Find Love Before Meeting BF Jacob Busch

Rebel Wilson went on a lot of dates before finding her Mr. Right in BF Jacob Busch. The actress is now revealing the experiment she did with relationships that eventually led her to love.

Rebel Wilson did a lot of dating before meeting boyfriend Jacob Busch, because she tried an “experiment” of not saying no to any man who asked her out. The 40-year-old revealed her “learning” process of not shutting the door on the possibility of love during the new episode of Ant Middleton & Rebel Wilson: Straight Talking, airing on Britain’s Sky One on Jan. 14.

The pair went on a series of adventures in Baja, Mexico. During the trip, Rebel admitted to the host that “It was part of the rules of that year, not that I told people that was happening. I just gave people a chance and then I learnt lots about myself,” adding “I did an experiment where I dated anyone who asked me out.”

During her 2020 “Year of Health” where she lost 60 pounds, Rebel had frequently talked about 2019 being her “Year of Love.” But apparently it didn’t turn out with true love as she hoped, despite all of that dating. The Pitch Perfect star is now with 29-year-old Anheuser Busch scion Jacob, making him red carpet official in Sept. 2020 at a black tie gala in Monaco. “Don’t shut yourself off to love. I had lots of really good friends but I never allowed myself to get into relationships until the last few years. Life is short and you really have to go for it,” Rebel explained to Ant.

Rebs also talked about her weight loss, and why it took her until she was 40 to get the body that she has today. “I wasn’t loving myself in the way that I should from 20 to 40 – that’s 20 years,” she explained, as the actress said she turned to the habits of unhealthy “comfort and emotional eating” in her twenties.

“I feel so sad that I did that to myself, just not loving yourself in the right way. It’s hard because I was so self-confident and don’t want to project a message to people that girls can’t be happy with themselves at bigger, plus sizes, because I was living the life,” she revealed. Rebel went on to say that she really needed to think hard about what she was eating before she was able to start losing weight.

“What I realize is that, it wasn’t treating myself eating 2,000 calories for dessert, that’s not treating myself, that is putting toxins in my body that I don’t need. Is it momentary comfort? Yes. But the next hour it’s fat and it’s not healthy for you,” Rebel admitted. She spent the better part of 2020 keeping fans up to date and inspired by her “Year of Health” through Instagram photos and videos. By the end of the year, she was down a whopping 60 pounds from when it began. With so many people gaining weight in 2020 due to COVID-19 lockdowns, Rebel was one of the celebs who came away with the biggest weight loss…and a hot younger boyfriend on top of that, even though he loves her no matter what her size.
