Melania Trump flashed a rare big smile while getting off a helicopter with Donald Trump as they traveled to the final presidential debate, and critics used theories about why it was a ‘fake Melania’.

A newly surfaced photo that shows Donald Trump, 74, and a very happy looking Melania Trump, 50, getting off of the Marine One helicopter to board Air Force One last week is bringing back theories that a body double for the First Lady is sometimes being used. In the pic, which was taken as the husband and wife were making their way to Nashville, TN for the final presidential debate, Donald is wearing a suit and waving to onlookers as Melania stands behind him in a sleeveless black dress and sunglasses and also waves while flashing a big rare smile. Since the beauty has often made headlines for looking miserable whenever she’s around the president, it didn’t take long for Twitter users to suspect the recent smiling snapshot was of a “fake Melania”.

“I like a president who doesn’t have to hire a First Lady stand-in,” one Twitter user wrote along with “#FakeMelania.” Actress Meredith Salenger also wrote about her thoughts on the photo. “Holy sh*t this is an obvious one. Do we just let that sh*t slide?” she asked in response to a tweet from writer/director Zack Bornstein that read, “The only thing I’ll miss from this administration is them swapping in new Melanias and just pretending we won’t notice like a 4-year-old with a guppy.”

“Folks, there is a body double running around for Melania. Know how I know? She’s smiling,” another Twitter user cheekily tweeted, while another compared Melania’s teeth in the helicopter photo to in a previous photo. “Notice the two front teeth. Melania’s are more squared…THAT AIN’T HER in the other photo. #FakeMelania,” the tweet read.

Another tweet went into even more details about her appearance while trying to prove that the helicopter pic isn’t the real Melania. “Not just the teeth… If you look at the eyebrows, the hairs are splayed at the start (closest to nasal bridge) – whereas Melania’s are not. Also on the upper lip, there is no prominent commissure – whereas Melania does,” the tweet pointed out.

The latest conspiracy theory about Melania comes after there’s been numerous other times pictures prompted similar reactions in online skeptics over the past few years. From a 2018 trip to Ohio with Donald, to a 2019 trip to Florida, each time, users claimed something was “off” about the First Lady, including looking shorter and/or having darker hair. Like with the helicopter pic, her mood also comes into play since she’s often spotted looking serious around Donald and/or pulling her hand away from his, which she did most recently at the final presidential debate on Oct. 22.

Whether they think it’s because she just doesn’t want to be around Donald or she just wants to be excused from her White House duties, these critics always seem to have a reason to think that a decoy for Melania is right in front of their eyes. While we don’t know for sure, it’s certainly an interesting concept!

Jennifer Aniston is sending her fans an important message on Instagram: it’s crucial to vote in the 2020 presidential election, but do not throw your vote away on Kanye West.

Jennifer Aniston wants YOU to get out the vote… but not for Kanye West. The Friends star, 51, showed her Instagram followers on October 23 that she had voted early in the 2020 presidential election with a photo of herself dropping off her mail-in ballot at a box in West Hollywood. She explained in the caption that she used her vote for Democrats Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, and ended with a plea: “It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible,” she wrote, adding the praying emoji.

#IVOTED for @joebiden and @kamalaharris. I dropped my ballot off, and I did it early 👏🏼 I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever. Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science… too many people have died. ⠀ I urge you to really consider who is going to be most affected by this election if we stay on the track we’re on right now… your daughters, the LGBTQ+ community, our Black brothers and sisters, the elderly with health conditions, and your future kids and grandkids (who will be tasked with saving a planet that our leadership refuses to believe is hurting). ⠀ ⠀ This whole thing isn’t about one candidate or one single issue, it’s about the future of this country and of the world. Vote for equal human rights, for love, and for decency. ⠀ ❤️🗳⠀ ⠀ ⠀ PS – It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible 🙏🏼

Kanye, who announced his presidential campaign on July 4, only managed to make it onto the ballot in 12 states. He’s lobbying his fans to write in his name in the other states and territories, including California, where Jen lives. Voting for the “Birthday Party” candidate in any capacity is throwing away your vote. As election expert Neil Sroka told HollywoodLife following Kanye’s campaign announcement, the Yeezy founder has absolutely zero chance of beating Biden or Donald Trump. A vote for Kanye means taking one away from a viable candidate and potentially swaying the election unfavorably.

That being said, the Emmy winner’s bigger message was about not electing Trump on November 3. “#IVOTED for @joebiden and @kamalaharris. I dropped my ballot off, and I did it early,” Jen wrote on Instagram. “I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever. Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science… too many people have died.”

“I urge you to really consider who is going to be most affected by this election if we stay on the track we’re on right now… your daughters, the LGBTQ+ community, our Black brothers and sisters, the elderly with health conditions, and your future kids and grandkids (who will be tasked with saving a planet that our leadership refuses to believe is hurting),” the Morning Show star continued. “This whole thing isn’t about one candidate or one single issue, it’s about the future of this country and of the world. Vote for equal human rights, for love, and for decency.”

Adele is ‘so ready’ for her ‘SNL’ hosting debut on Oct. 24, a source spills to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY — but the star is ‘fighting’ a sketch that would involve singing.

Adele, 32, can do no wrong! The star has been busy rehearsing for her highly anticipated hosting debut on Saturday Night Live this weekend, and she’s more than up for the challenge. “Adele is so ready for SNL. The only thing that is ruining her spirits is that the week is going by very fast and before she knows it her hosting gig will be done,” an insider close to the singer spills to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “She is very much excited and is looking to make this the best show of the season. She wants this episode to be remembered for a long time,” they added.

Adele has appeared on the long-running NBC sketch series twice as musical guest, including a memorable 2008 performance that helped propel her career in North America. She returned in 2015 to perform her now-iconic smash hit “Hello” but hasn’t released new music since 25. While fans are eager for new music and would love to see her perform again, Adele is focused on showing off her acting chops. “Adele wants to show more of the funny and that is why she didn’t want to be the musical guest,” our source explained.

Currently, singer H.E.R., 23, is scheduled as musical guest for the evening. “For those that want to hear [Adele] sing, she is actually fighting it because she would like to just host but ideas have been thrown to her for skits that involve her voice. But if she is going to sing at the end of the day, she might do it on her monologue with cast members,” the insider added. “She doesn’t want to take anything away from H.E.R,” they also noted.

Season 46 has been one to remember already given the timing of the upcoming presidential election. Jim Carrey, 58, joined the series to play former vice president and current Democratic nominee Joe Biden, while Alec Baldwin, 62, has continued with his brilliant portrayal of President Donald Trump. The show has been somewhat of a moving target with all of changing news, but our source says Adele is ready for anything! “There are some skits that are still being locked down because the writers are waiting for the debate fallout to see where else they go with the show. But Adele is well prepared and not scared,” our source said.

During the final presidential debate on Oct. 22, Donald Trump left people in tears after mistaking the continent of Europe for a country — ‘Game of Thrones’ star Sophie Turner included.

Donald Trump, 74, referred to the continent of Europe as a country during the final presidential debate on Oct. 22, and the flub didn’t miss Sophie Turner’s ears. The 24-year-old Game of Thrones actress immediately hopped onto her Instagram Story to share her reaction to the brain fart: a photo of her face, caught in mid-laughter. “He called Europe a country,” the HBO star wrote over her amused face.

Trump had been discussing working with other countries on finding a response to the coronavirus as he faced off against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, 77, at the Curb Event Center in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday evening. “We also have others that we’re working on very closely with, other countries, in particular Europe,” Trump said in a tone so confident, it made the mistake even more apparent.

Sophie, who just welcomed a daughter named Willa with husband Joe Jonas in July, wasn’t the only person who caught on to Trump’s geographical blunder. “Who’s gonna tell @realDonaldTrump that Europe isn’t a country?,” one person watching the debate asked on Twitter, while another tweeted, “Started the debate from the beginning and Donald Trump just referred to Europe as a country [laughing emoji] if it wasn’t real life it would be absolutely hilarious.”

Hi, Trump. Just reminding you that Europe is a continent, not a country.

— Preston “Just An Adjunct Professor of Law” Mitchum (@PrestonMitchum) October 23, 2020

Confusing Europe for a country wasn’t the only alarming comment Trump had made during the debate. The POTUS tried to claim that the 545 immigrant children who were torn apart from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border beginning in 2017 and whose parents still can’t be found (per court documents reviewed by The New York Times) are “SO well take care of.”

Trump also caused a stir on Twitter for calling his hometown of New York City a “ghost town” because of the pandemic, as he tried to push for the complete reopening of the country. The observation confused NYC locals like The Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen, who tweeted that NYC is “not a ghost town,” while New York Mayor Bill de Blasio quipped on Twitter, “The only ‘ghost town’ will be Mar-a-Lago after you’re forced into retirement on Election Day.” As you can see, celebrities had a lot to say before the upcoming 2020 presidential election on Nov. 3, as more and more stars encourage fans to pay attention to politics and vote!

Rudy Giuliani: 5 Things To Know About Ex-NYC Mayor Tricked By Sacha Baron Cohen In ‘Borat’ Sequel

Learn more about former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, who fell for an embarrassing prank revealed in Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘Borat’ sequel.

For once, Rudy Giuliani is in the news for something other than defending Donald Trump. It’s not exactly good news for him, though. The president’s personal lawyer was duped by Sacha Baron Cohen with an elaborate prank for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, and the embarrassing incident is going to take some time to live down. In the meantime, here’s what else you should know about the former New York City mayor, 76:

1. He was caught with his pants (almost) down by Borat. Giuliani fell victim to Baron Cohen’s scheme while unknowingly filming the Borat sequel. During his brief cameo, Giuliani is talking to a woman (Maria Bakalova, 24) who he believes his a reporter for a fictional conservative news program. The “reporter” invites him up to her hotel room for drinks, where he is caught in a compromising position, reclining on a bed with his hand down his pants for several seconds. Borat bursts into the room and reveals that the journalist is actually his “teenage” daughter. Giuliani leaves the hotel, and actually filed a police report after the incident. He didn’t know at the time that it was Baron Cohen.

2. He was the mayor of New York City during 9/11. Giuliani served two terms in office as the Mayor of New York City, from 1994 to 2001. September 11, 2001, was actually the same day of the mayoral primaries; Giuliani would soon be out of office. His handling of 9/11 and the aftermath of the terrorist attack led him to be dubbed “America’s Mayor” and he even received an honorary knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II. Polls taken six weeks after 9/11 showed a 79% approval rating among NYC voters, as opposed to 26% one year prior. He was named TIME Person of the Year in 2001, as well.

3. He’s President Trump’s personal lawyer. Giuliani backed Trump in the 2016 presidential election, and went on to become one of his informal advisors once elected. He joined the president’s legal team in 2018 amidst Robert Mueller‘s Russia probe, and has become an outspoken surrogate for Trump on TV. He’s garnered criticism for some of his controversial statements

4. He ran for president in 2008. Giuliani once had dreams of the White House himself. The former mayor, who ran unsuccessfully for New York Senate in 2000, vied for the presidency in 2008. While at one point the frontrunner for the Republican ticket, he was beaten in the primaries by the late Arizona Senator John McCain. Illinois Senator Barack Obama, of course, would go on to win the election.

5. He claimed his innocence after the Borat sting. Giuliani claimed that nothing untoward was happening during his appearance in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. The ex-mayor said in an October 21 radio interview, “I had to take off the electronic equipment. And when the electronic equipment came off, some of it was in the back and my shirt came a little out, although my clothes were entirely on. I leaned back, and I tucked my shirt in, and at that point, at that point, they have this picture they take which looks doctored, but in any event, I’m tucking my shirt in. I assure you that’s all I was doing.”

Jennifer Lawrence Shades Donald Trump: I Can’t Vote For A President ‘Who Supports White Supremacists’

Actress Jennifer Lawrence says that President Donald Trump drew a ‘line in the sand’ for her as a voter when he refused to condemn White supremacy.

Jennifer Lawrence is team Joe Biden and Kamala Harris when it comes to the Nov. 3, 2020 presidential election. Now the Oscar winning actress is explaining why even though she grew up in a Republican household, she could never vote for Donald Trump, 74. The Red Sparrow star appeared on the Oct. 21 Absolutely Not podcast with host, comedian Heather McMahan, and said that when Trump refused to condemn White supremacy in the first presidential debate — instead telling the neo-right White male-only organization The Proud Boys to “Stand back and stand by” — it was a “line drawn in the sand” for her as a voter. You can hear J-Law discuss the subject starting at the 36:29 mark below:

The 30-year-old is a board member of Represent Us, the largest grassroots anti-political corruption campaign, yet for Jennifer she says “it’s extremely hard to talk about politics, you don’t want to. I’m an actor and I want everybody to see my movies,” she explained about the possibility of alienating some fans.

Jennifer revealed that she didn’t even vote for Barack Obama during his successful 2008 presidential run. “I grew up Republican. The first president, my first time voting, I voted for John McCain. I was a little Republican and I’ve changed my politics,” the star admitted.

The Kentucky native continued, “I was fortunate to grow up in a Republican house were I was able see the fiscal benefits of some of the Republican policies. And I could also see the social issues weren’t in line with my views. And then for me, when Donald Trump got elected, that just changed everything. Cause he’s an impeached president who’s broken many laws and has refused to condemn White supremacy, and it’s just….it feels like there’s been a line drawn in the sand.”

When it came to the topic of actors giving their opinion on politics and voting, Jen said that all American voices have a right to their own thoughts. “I have an opinion. I don’t want to support a president who supports White supremacists,” she explained. Jennifer then said she longed for the days when Obama led the nation because it was so much more stress-free.

“Don’t you remember…Like, it’s so hard to remember the days when Obama was president, where you woke up and you, you would go days, maybe weeks without thinking about the president. Because like everything, in general would be okay. I mean the amount of anxiety…” she frustratingly sighed about how much nerve racking drama Trump brings every day to the job of president.

Jennifer already endorsed Biden and Harris earlier in October when she appeared on the cover of V magazine‘s special election issue. The Hunger Games star told the publication, “Voting is the foundation of our democracy and our freedom. And I would consider this upcoming election the most consequential of our lifetime. I’m voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris this year because Donald Trump has and will continue to put himself before the safety and well-being of America. He does not represent my values as an American, and most importantly as a human being.

Melania Trump sounded surprised that Beyoncé was made the cover star of the Sept. 2018 issue of ‘Vogue’ and given ‘editorial input,’ according to a report of another leaked phone call from Melania’s ex-adviser.

Another one of Melania Trump’s secretly recorded phone calls with her former adviser and close friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff has been leaked! This time, the First Lady allegedly discussed the decision of Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour to make Beyoncé the cover star of the Sept. 2018 issue for her magazine, according to the audio of the phone call that was shared with NBC News and reported about on Oct. 21. Melania reportedly “appeared to express astonishment” over Anna’s decision, which included uncharacteristically giving the cover star “editorial input,” according to the outlet.

“Anna [Wintour] gave the September issue of Vogue cover — complete, complete, complete, everything — to Beyoncé,” Melania allegedly told Stephanie. She even reportedly addressed the fact that a then 23-year-old photographer, Tyler Mitchell, would shoot Beyoncé’s photos for the cover story. Tyler became the first Black photographer to ever shoot a cover for Vogue, which had reached its 126th anniversary in 2018.

“She hired Black photographer. And it’s the first Black photographer ever doing cover of Vogue,” Melanie reportedly said in the phone call to Stephanie, who used to be the special director of events for Vogue before working for Melania. Beyoncé’s spokesperson declined to comment on the phone call when asked by NBC News, but Melania’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham slammed Ms. Wolkoff in a comment to the outlet.

“Her narcissism knows no bounds, this woman is a fraud. These audio tapes are hand-picked about nonsense and presented with no context. Shame on her for this continued attempt at character assassination and shame on NBC for covering this gossip,” Melania’s spokeswoman told NBC News. However, she did not directly address the comments about Beyoncé’s Vogue cover.

Beyoncé had starred on the Sept. 2015 issue of Vogue as well, but her 2018 cover caused a stir over a Huffington Post report that claimed the “Halo” singer was given “full control over the cover” thanks to a contractual obligation. Bey is not one to give very many interviews — the former Destiny’s Child member didn’t even offer one for her first Vogue cover story — but made a rare move by opening up about giving birth to her twins Rumi and Sir Carter, 3, and more personal topics in the 2018 issue.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff wrote about her 15-year friendship with Melania Trump in her new book, Melania and Me. (Book Cover Courtesy of Simon & Schuster)

Stephanie recorded six total phone conversations with Melania, which last “more than six hours,” according to NBC News. The recordings began in Feb. 2018, when Stephanie had just left The White House, and continued until July of that year. One of these calls was even EXCLUSIVELY shared with HollywoodLife, in which Melania expressed her surprise over another Vogue cover star: Stormy Daniels, an adult entertainment actress who allegedly had an affair with Melania’s husband Donald Trump. Stephanie wrote more about her ex-friendship with the FLOTUS in a tell-all book, Melanie and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady, which hit bookstands on Sept. 1.

50 Cent admitted his plan to vote for Donald Trump for president is ‘affecting’ his ‘love life’, when he took to Instagram to respond to his ex Chelsea Handler’s trolling comment about him no longer being her ‘favorite ex’.

50 Cent, 45, is asking his ex-girlfriend Chelsea Handler, 45, to not let politics and the upcoming presidential election between Donald Trump and Joe Biden come between them one day after she trolled him for publicly announcing his support for Trump. The rapper shared a screenshot of FOX News’ coverage on his post rejecting the reported percentages of what could become Biden’s tax plan, along with the blonde comedian‘s response, which read, “You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriend” on Oct. 21. “🤦‍♂️oh my God this is affecting my love life now. @chelseahandler I love ya Gator, don’t let Trump and joe Biden come between us girl.#starzgettheapp,” he wrote alongside the post.

A post shared by 50 Cent (@50cent) on Oct 21, 2020 at 7:02am PDT

50’s post was met with a lot of comments from followers who had a mixture of positive and negative things to say. “It’s ok dude you’ve got my respect, rap wise and politically,” one follower wrote. “This man doesn’t want equality for his own ppl,” another said, while a third advised, “Don’t sweat it, way cooler chicks out there for ya 50 ✌🏼.”

Since funny lady Chelsea, who dated 50 in 2010, had been open about her support for Biden before her former beau told people to “vote for Trump” in his initial Oct. 19 Instagram post, it wasn’t too surprising that she would use humor to express her disagreement with his opinion. “👀WHAT THE F*CK! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT, 🏃‍♂️💨F*CK NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. 🤷🏽‍♂️I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f*cking mind. 😤,” he wrote in the post, referencing claims that Biden’s tax plan, when combined with local and state taxes, could cap off at 62% for California and New York City’s top earners.

50’s post encouraging others to vote for Trump didn’t just get the attention of Chelsea and some news outlets, it also brought on a public response from Trump Senior Campaign Advisor Katrina Pierson. “I guess 50 cent don’t want to end up 20 cent,” Pierson tweeted after 50 shared his supportive post. Other Trump supporters, such as commentator, Tomi Lahren, 28, also responded with words of joy and praise. “Welcome to the Trump Train!” she exclaimed.

As the Nov. 3 presidential election date gets closer, many celebrities, like 50, have been publicly sharing who they’re voting for. Other Trump supporters include Kid Rock, Kirstie Alley, and Stacey Dash, and those rooting for Biden include Taylor Swift, Cardi B, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Rudy Giuliani Caught With Hands Down Pants In Hotel Room With ‘Borat’s Daughter’ In Sasha Baron Cohen’s Film

Rudy Giuliani was caught in a compromising position during a wild prank played by Sasha Baron Cohen during the upcoming ‘Borat’ sequel.

UPDATE, 10/21/20, 5:38pm ET: Rudy Giuliani claimed in an October 21 interview that he was tucking his shirt in during his brief Borat Subsequent Moviefilm cameo. “I had to take off the electronic equipment,” Giuliani said. “And when the electronic equipment came off, some of it was in the back and my shirt came a little out, although my clothes were entirely on. I leaned back, and I tucked my shirt in, and at that point, at that point, they have this picture they take which looks doctored, but in any event, I’m tucking my shirt in. I assure you that’s all I was doing.”

Giuliani claimed that the “hit job” by Sasha Baron Cohen in the Borat sequel was retaliation for attacking Hunter Biden last week. The scene was filmed in July. “They’ll do anything. They’ve attacked me over everything possible, investigated every business dealing I’ve ever had,” he said. “And now the idiot Borat is going after me with a totally sensationalized false account of a ridiculous movie I guess that he’s done.”

ORIGINAL: Nestled within Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is a moment in which Rudy Giuliani, personal lawyer to President Donald Trump, manages to embarrass himself to excruciating levels. Giuliani falls for a ludicrous (and downright lewd) prank by filmmaker and star Sasha Baron Cohen, in which the former NYC mayor is taken to a hotel room by a female “reporter.” (Hint: she’s really an actress). Giuliani, 76, believes the young woman has just interviewed him for a conservative news program… which doesn’t exist, he later discovers.

In the sequel to 2006’s Borat, which premieres October 22 on Amazon Prime, the woman invites Giuliani for drinks after completing the “interview.” In the hotel room, Giuliani is shown reclining on a bed and untucking his shirt, then sticking his hand down his pants and moving it around for several seconds. It gets worse. Much worse. The 24-year-old actress, Maria Bakalova, isn’t just disguised as a journalist. She’s playing Borat’s teenage daughter, Sandra Jessica Parker Sagdiyev, who is pretending to be one.

Giuliani and the woman are interrupted by Borat, who bursts into the room while wearing pink lingerie, shouting, “She’s 15. She’s too old for you!” All Giuliani says in response is: “Why are you dressed like this?” After Borat pleads with the former mayor to “take me instead,” Giuliani gets up and leaves hotel suite. “I don’t want you,” he says on his way out the door. It should be noted that Giuliani had no reason to believe that the character was underage.

Giuliani admitted in July that he didn’t know he was being set up by Sasha Baron Cohen. In fact, he filed a report with the NYPD about the incident. “This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit,” Giuliani told The New York Post that same month. “This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away. I only later realized it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn’t get me.” Except… he definitely did.

50 Cent just lost the love of one ex-girlfriend thanks to his endorsement of Donald Trump. Chelsea Handler is dissing him after he claimed he didn’t want to ’20 Cent’ under Joe Biden’s tax plan.

It’s all about the Benjamins for Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson when it comes to who he’s voting for in the 2020 presidential election, and that has let down his ex Chelsea Handler. The proud Joe Biden supporter now says that he “used to be my favorite” ex-boyfriend, until Fif declared on Oct. 19 that he’d be voting for Donald Trump on Nov. 3, 2020. The mogul is upset with claims that Biden’s tax plan when combined with state and local taxes could put a 62 percent tax rate on top California and NYC earners, causing him to say he doesn’t want to be “20 Cent” as a result of how it could impact his bank accounts.

You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriend.

— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) October 20, 2020

Chelsea and Curtis, both 45, tried their hand at dating in 2010, and had a steamy relationship for a few months before going their separate ways. But they’ve had cute flirtations since then. In 2014, the former late night talk show host posted an Instagram photo of her skiing without a top on, and Fif wrote in the comments, “Hi haters, boy I love @chelseahandler out of control. Lol.” Her cute “favorite ex-boyfriend” trolling over Trump shows that the two still have a good sense of humor about their past. Chelsea’s other exes include former Comcast Group President Ted Harbert and hotelier Andre Balazs.

Fifty literally made headlines on Fox News and other outlets after he announced on Oct. 19 that he didn’t care that Trump “doesn’t like black people” and that he’d be voting for the tycoon because he’s scared of where tax rates could go for millionaires like himself under Biden. The rap mogul posted a TV news graphic that showed how California state and New York City residents making ver $400K would allegedly pay 62 percent of their income in taxes. However, the number didn’t say how the Golden State already has the highest income taxes in the U.S. already, no matter who is the president.

“WHAT THE F**K! (VOTE For TRUMP) IM OUT, F**K NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f**king mind,” 50 wrote next to a screen grab of a TV graphic showing “Top Tax Rates By State Under Biden Tax Plan.”

A post shared by 50 Cent (@50cent) on Oct 19, 2020 at 12:59pm PDT

As a result, Trump Senior Campaign Advisor Katrina Pierson jumped at the opportunity to share Fif’s Trump endorsement, tweeting out, “I guess 50 cent don’t want to end up 20 cent.” Even conservative pundit Tomi Lahren, 28, wrote in the comments of 50’s IG post, “Welcome to the Trump Train!” However one thing EVERYBODY is forgetting is that Fif is the KING of online trolling, and could have just been looking for an attention fix with his Trump post.

On Oct. 20, Fif posted a video clip of four Fox News personalities talking about his Instagram post endorsing Trump and going after Biden’s tax plan. So his IG post literally made national news, which he has to be loving! 50 wrote in the caption, “Yeah, i don’t want to be 20 Cent. 62% is a very, very, bad idea. i don’t like it!” lifting Katrina’s new nickname, but not mentioning anything pro-Trump. Curtis is a very wealthy man, as in Feb. 2020, Forbes magazine estimated his fortune to be $110 million.

Protesters lined the streets of DC, NYC, LA, and dozens of other cities as they joined the second Women’s March of 2020. See photos from the nationwide marches against Donald Trump.

The threat to reproductive rights in the United States has gotten so significant that the creators of the Women’s March have called an emergency second protest of 2020. On Saturday, October 17, thousands of women, nonbinary individuals, and men took to the streets in Washington, DC and across the nation to let their message be heard: President Donald Trump cannot, and will not, replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court with Amy Coney Barrett.

In the meantime, protesters took part in over 100 sister marches throughout the United States, armed with signs, slogans, and a healthy dose of anger. Rather than the ubiquitous hot pink pussy hats, the must-have accessory for the events were protective face masks. As the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, the Women’s March organizers required marchers to wear masks, attempt to social distance, and stay at home if they felt ill. One protester in DC carried a sign which read “Free Melania” in reference to Melania Trump, while thousands of others wore protective face masks and carried signs which featured images of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Scroll through the gallery above for more pictures from the October 2020 Women’s Marches around the country.

Trump and Senate Republicans’ insistence that they rush forward a Supreme Court nomination less than three weeks before a presidential election is bad enough; nominating someone like Barrett, an ultra-conservative judge with ties to a religious sect that inspired The Handmaid’s Tale, is almost comically terrible, especially considering everything RBG stood for.  The October 17 march comes just two days after Barrett’s Senate hearings concluded, and the nation waits to hear if her nomination goes through.

“If Donald Trump is allowed to appoint another Supreme Court Justice, Roe v Wade will be overturned,” the Women’s March organizers said in a statement. “It’s that simple. This is everything that the Women’s March has warned about since day one of Trump’s presidency. This is the moment we’ve been preparing for… The only thing that will stop Trump and Mitch McConnell from stealing another Supreme Court seat is millions of women in the streets—and defending this seat just became THE defining issue for the millions of women who will decide this election.”

Jim Carrey’s Joe Biden and Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump participated in separate town halls in this cold open on ‘SNL’ — and Kate McKinnon’s Savannah Guthrie lost her marbles!

Kate McKinnon, 36, can do no wrong! The SNL cast member appeared as Today Show host Savannah Guthrie, 48, as she questioned Alec Baldwin, 62, as Donald Trump, 74. “We have lots of questions but I’d like to start with tearing you a new one,” she quipped, setting the stage for the explosive conversation the pair were about to have. After evading a number of questions, Kate’s Savannah put him on the spot about his taxes. “The question was: “Why won’t you release your taxes?” she asked.

“That’s simple, I don’t want to go to jail,” Alec’s Trump replied, explaining that he’s “doing great” since recovering from the COVID-19 virus. “No, not at all. I’m doing great. My doctors said my one lung is beautiful and doing very well…I had a small fever around 100 celsius. I am doing well. I never saw the devil or a list of my sins. I was always doing well and strong,” he said. Kate’s Savannah wasn’t having it, and things took a wild turn as the duo ended up in a WWE style wrestling match! The fight didn’t last long as Kate — clad in a hot pink suit — grabbed a chair and clobbered Alec’s Trump!

Meanwhile, Jim Carrey, 58, also returned to SNL as Joe Biden, 77, for a rather sleepy town hall of his own! After answering questions with several (extremely long winded) answers — including one where he became painter Bob Ross and compared politics to tree branches. “I promise I won’t tweet once because I don’t know how,” he said at one point, also embracing the references to Mister Rogers.

The Ace Ventura star has been killing it since coming on board at the beginning of the season, making is debut in the season premiere cold open! “Absolutely not,” Jim’s Joe answered when asked if he was “ready” for the debate. “But I’ve got the beginning of 46 fantastic ideas that I may or may not have access to. Let’s do that while I hold my bladder,” he quipped, subtly referencing the season 46 premiere of Saturday Night Live. Alec’s Trump could’t be bothered as he declared the entire thing “boring,” while also claiming Jim’s Joe was “mean” to him (insert eye roll here.

Jim’s Joe made his next appearance in a VP debate spoof as the now-iconic fly on Mike Pence‘s head. Beck Bennett, 36, took on the role of the 61-year-old VP, who was facing off against Maya Rudolph‘s basically perfect impersonation of Kamala Harris, 55. After watching her being repeatedly interrupted, Jim’s Joe — watching at home with his wife Jill — had an idea: to show up at the debate! It turns out the former VP hilariously had a teleportation machine ready to go. Unintentionally, Jim’s Joe became a fly en route to the social distanced debate.

“Mr. Vice President do you not feel for them at all?” Jim-as-the fly wondered, adding, “Yes, yes, your economy is so in the toilet I want to lay my eggs on it.” Maya’s Kamala was not about to let her opponent know about the pest, who simply refused to move. “I’m sorry to interrupt vice president Pence — there’s an um…there’s a giant…no, Senator Harris, help me out,” Kate McKinnon’s Susan Page attempted to help. “Oh, I’m good,” she retorted, sitting back with a bowl of popcorn, while Joe’s wife Jill wondered why the fly looked like Jeff Goldbum. In real life, celebrities and viewers couldn’t help but react to the fly, with Gabrielle Union dubbing the insect an “American Hero.”

Chloe Fineman’s ‘Tiffany Trump’ was still in birthday mode despite ‘flack in the press’ in this hilarious bit on ‘Weekend Update’!

With just 2 weeks until the presidential election, the political sketches are on fire at Studio 8H! Chloe Fineman, 32, appeared as 27-year-old Tiffany Trump on Saturday Night Live‘s Oct. 17 episode. Chloe’s Tiffany popped in on Colin Jost and Michael Che’s Weekend Update fresh off a weekend of “maskless partying” in ritzy South Beach, Miami! “Well, you know — the media has been butt hurt because I was partying maskless in Miami with randoms on a boat,” she declared.

“But I’m a stepchild named Tiffany. It’s kind of my job to get faded on South Beach,” she quipped, sitting next to brothers Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump. It turns out that SNL‘s version of the first family hadn’t all had the chance to meet in-person! “Who’s that lady?” a confused Eric pondered. “That’s your sister, Eric! Wait, Tiff — I don’t know if you and your sister have met!” Donald Jr. realized, as Tiffany confirmed this was the case.

Colin wasn’t quite done, however, with inquiring about Tiffany’s pandemic party weekend — especially when dad Donald Trump, 74, just recovered from COVID-19. It turns out that Donald has always practiced social distancing — especially when it comes to his daughter with Marla Maples. “No, daddy has always taken the six foot social distance rule very seriously with me,” she hilariously explained, rocking a captain hat.

The season was off to a bang as Jim Carrey, 58, agreed to come on board as democratic nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden, 77, while Alec Baldwin, 62, returned as Donald Trump, 74. Alec has been playing Trump since before the 2016 election, and the current President has often taken to social media to criticize the actor. “Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!” Donald tweeted in 2018.

While Jim has appeared as a host on SNL seasons past, season 46 would mark his most regular appearance on the NBC sketch series. “There was some interest on [Jim’s] part [to play Biden]. And then we responded, obviously, positively. But it came down to discussions about what the take was,” Lorne Michaels said to Vulture. “He and Colin Jost had a bunch of talks. He and I as well. He will give the part energy and strength, and … [Laughs.] Hopefully it’s funny…I honestly don’t think of them as celebrity cameos…I’m thrilled Jim is doing it,” he added.

The blonde sported a blue tie dye t-shirt sporting the name of Joe Biden, 77, that also boasted the words “World Stage” and “Respected Leadership.” She paired the knotted t-shirt with a light wash pair of jeans and various gold jewelry pieces, including a watch, layered necklaces, and earrings. She opted to keep her blonde hair in two adorable mini funs as she showed off her flawless, glowing complexion for the camera. Several celebrities took to social media with positive messages on World Mental Health Day, including Selena Gomez, Gisele Bundchen, and Meghan Markle, who participated in a podcast interview.

Hailey’s uncle Billy Baldwin, 57, applauded his niece’s post. “Thanks Hailey!! You have no idea how much this means to me…,” the older brother of her dad Stephen Baldwin, 54, commented back. Stephen has been a vocal supporter of current President Donald Trump, 74, and took to social media yesterday cementing his beliefs. “I Didn’t Vote For Trump In 2016, But I’d Crawl Over Broken Glass To Now,” he tweeted on Oct 10. “don’t talk much about family pray 4 everyone every day! in my [heart] beauty of [the United States] ‘land of #free home of #brave” is … reverence 4 our freedom, importance of clarity of  vote?…Many are called, few are chosen!

I would never let politics get in the way of family. It’s over now, and his opinions have changed with how everything’s now unfolding. Every day, the news freaks me out. It’s terrifying.”

Beck Bennett’s character attempted to use his ‘platform’ as an ‘artist’ to take a stand against President Donald Trump — but he didn’t exactly get the reaction he planned for!

The laughs haven’t stopped since Saturday Night Live‘s premiere last weekend! Jason Momoa, 41, made an unexpected appearance in a sketch alongside anti-Trump ranter Beck Bennett, 36. Beck’s character, like many millennials, decided to take to social media (Instagram especially) to share his opinion on the current political climate. “You’ve had three wives, you don’t care about our lives — well, enough is enough is enough, Mr. Trump,” he rapped. “You’re a puppet for Mr. Putin. You’re the one doing all the lootin…you don’t even wear a mask. You may be President but you aren’t mine!” he added.

After an hurricane, a night without sleep, with no electricity and scary noises outside, I was regretting staying up for #SNL. But after this appearance (in a good satirical skit) I’m okay 😁

Beck’s character had plans for his black-and-white rap video to go viral, and decided to enlist some Hollywood A-Listers for help. “I tag Leonardo DiCaprio, Trevor Noah, and Jason Momoa. Let’s get this video to 100 million views by midnight so we can finally send Donald Trump the message,” he said. Unfortunately for Beck, the video wasn’t well received and resulted in a slew of calls — including a video one from Jason! “Is this the guy from the ‘Enough Is Enough’ video? Don’t tag me! This is the weakest thing I’ve ever seen…you need to take that down. It’s pathetic and you’re a loser,” the Aquaman star ranted. “It worked, Jason Momoa knows me!” Beck’s character said, in awe.

Following photos of Morgan at a bar in Tuscaloosa, Alabama without a mask and partying with fans, the “This Bar” singer was dropped from the line-up. “My actions from this past weekend were pretty short-sighted, and have obviously affected my long-term goals and my dreams,” he said in an Instagram video posted on Oct. 7 filmed in an NYC hotel room. “I got a call from the show saying I can no longer play due to COVID protocol… I respect the shows’ decision. On a more personal note, I have some growing up to do. I think I’ve lost myself a little but and I’ve tried to find joy in the wrong places…I’m going to take a step back from the spotlight and work on my self.” He added that show runner Lorne Michaels said they could “find another time to make this up.”

The countdown to the Nov. 3 election is on, and with that in mind SNL plans to keep the heavy political theme going throughout the next few episodes. “SNL is always politically charged and this year will be no different. Colin Jost and the rest of the writers and cast are very eager to dive into this presidential season with all hands-on deck,” a source close to production tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY last month. Excitement has also been in the air with Jim Carrey, 58, on board as Joe Biden, 77, and the series returning to the iconic Studio 8H after a series of “At-Home” episodes.

“[SNL staffers] can’t wait to work with Jim Carrey, Alec Baldwin and everyone else,” the source revealed. “There [are] going to be lots of skits and openers surrounding the election and whatever happens post-election. It will be a very big part of the show this season,” the insider also said. Both Jim and Alec slayed the season 46 season opener as Biden and Donald Trump, respectively, spoofing the September debate. Maya Rudolph, 48, is also expected to recur as Biden’s running mate Maya Rudolph, 55.

Kate McKinnon debuted this hilarious character alongside Colin Jost and Michael Che on ‘Weekend Update’ — but couldn’t keep it together as the ‘medical expert’!

Kate McKinnon, 36, is a comedy genius! The Saturday Night Live star just stole the show on “Weekend Update” as the show’s hilarious in-house medical expert, Dr. Wayne Wenodis. “We know you’re highly respected in your field,” Colin Jost, 38, said to Kate as Dr. Wayne, who was giving us some Dr. Einstein vibes. “We know this,” she declared, which was her go-to line for pretty much everything Colin had to say.

Dr. Weknowdis out and then back in character 😂🤣😂

“Having a televised medical exam is highly unusual,” Colin went on, as Kate’s Wayne leaned back and smoked out of a pipe. “[Trump] has not said if he had a negative test,” Colin went on, as she replied, “That we do not know.” The pair totally broke character as the moment was just that hilarious. “Are you saying we know this, or your last name?” the anchor finally questioned. “Wenodis is Greek. In English, it translates to we know this. Like, we’re aware of this,” she explained. When it came to Donald Trump‘s Coronavirus, Kate’s Wayne, however, had some concerns. “It’s very complicated. How can I say this? A room has air, right? We know this. Everybody has a nose, we know this. Everybody’s face has a hole — we know this,” she went on, declaring Florida a “freaky place” if that happens to be the next location of a Trump rally.

“While I’m here, I have to give you a test,” she went on, proceeding to take Colin’s blood pressure. As the pair completely lost it laughing, Colin finally interjected — “Kate. Kate. Are you okay?” as she went back to using her normal voice! “I’m obviously not,” she hilariously responded. “This is something I just started doing to cope…I have a lot of wigs and mustaches at my disposable and it’s a nice way to escape…Colin the one thing that we do know…no, we don’t know this.”

The season has been off to an incredible start as Jim Carrey, 58, came on board as Joe Biden, 77 — the perfect match to take on Alec Baldwin‘s portrayal of Donald Trump, 74. The Ace Ventura star slayed with his debut on the season 46 premiere as he and Alec, 62, spoofed the Sept. 29 debate. During the actual debate, the former Vice President momentarily lost his cool on Trump, retorting, “Would you just shut up, man?” after multiple interruptions (and we don’t blame him). Jim hilariously made the moment his own against Alec’s Donald and it was everything! Maya Rudolph, 48, also popped in as Kamala Harris, 55, to meditate between the two. “This stops right now. You do not treat my Joe like that, alright?” she curtly informed Alec.

“Kamala, I got this,” Jim’s Joe insisted, as she refused to relent. “Joe, let Mamala go to work,” she responded (what Kamala’s real-life step kids call her). She didn’t stop there, going on to make a now-viral reference to racy track “WAP” by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. “I think if there’s one thing we learned tonight, it’s that America needs a WAP: Woman as President,” she declared. “But for now, I’ll settle for HVPIC: Hot Vice President in Charge,” she then added. Slay, Kamala, slay!

Prior to the premiere, it was confirmed by show runner Lorne Michaels that Jim would be appearing as Joe Biden throughout the season. “There was some interest on [Jim]’s part. And then we responded, obviously, positively,” the Candian-born producer said in an interview with Vulture. Although Jim has appeared on SNL many time as host over the years, he was never a full-time cast member — despite auditioning back in the ’80s. “But it came down to discussions about what the take was. He and Colin Jost had a bunch of talks. He and I as well. He will give the part energy and strength, and…Hopefully it’s funny,” he added, laughing.

President Donald Trump swore his way through an interview with Rush Limbaugh, threatening Iran with unprecedented violence if they ‘f**k with’ the United States.

Donald Trump made an unfortunate gaffe on Rush Limbaugh‘s radio show on October 9, amidst growing concern that he’s unfit for office while suffering from COVID-19. During a discussion about new Iranian sanctions, the president said, “Iran knows that: If you f**k around with us, if you do something bad to us, we are gonna do things to you that have never been done before.”

“If you fuck around with us, if you do something bad to us, we are gonna do things to you that have never been done before.” — the President of the United States pic.twitter.com/RfDKchaw7i

— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) October 9, 2020

Trump called into Limbaugh’s show from the Oval Office for a rambling, two-hour interview that essentially turned into a MAGA rally. The president ranted about Iran, his “unfair” treatment by the media, his Democratic opponent Joe Biden, and… Hillary Clinton‘s emails. He also told Limbaugh, whom he awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in February, that he’s feeling much better since starting a steroidal treatment for COVID-19. The president tested positive for the virus on October 1, and was hospitalized for two days. He is now back at the White House and not quarantining, despite CDC recommendations.

Despite tweeting shortly before being released from Walter Reed Medical Center on October 5 that he was feeling better than he had “in 20 years,” Trump’s behavior post-hospitalization has left some concerned. Upon arriving at the White House, he climbed to a balcony and gave photographers a thumb’s up, but was visibly gasping for air and splotched makeup. While taking a course of multiple heavy steroids, Trump began tweeting erratically, and non-stop for hours, all in caps.

The night before his interview with Limbaugh, Trump phoned into Fox Business for an interview that went off the rails. Trump wheezed and coughed throughout the broadcast, as he claimed that he was “clean” and no longer contagious. It had been less than a week since his diagnosis. I’m back because I am a perfect physical specimen and I’m extremely young. And so I’m lucky in that way,” Trump, who is 74, obese, and has known heart issues (also, again, COVID-19) stated.

Pete Buttigieg calmly and quietly shaded Mike Pence during a pre-debate interview, implying that the Vice President is a hypocrite for being Christian and still working with Trump.

Pete Buttigieg ended an interview on Fox News with guns blazing, shocking his interviewers into silence with an expert, shady dig at Vice President Mike Pence. Buttigieg, 38, appeared on the program hours before the October 7 VP debate to stump for Kamala Harris, when he was asked how the senator would justify changing her stances on policy issues after becoming Joe Biden‘s running mate. Buttigieg went full Midwestern shady with his answer, never losing his calm.

— Frederick Joseph (@FredTJoseph) October 8, 2020

“Well, there’s a classic parlor game of trying to find a little daylight between running mates,” the former South Bend, Indiana mayor began. “And if people want to play that game, then we could look into why an evangelical Christian like Mike Pence wants to be on a ticket with a president caught with a porn star, or how he feels about the immigration policy that he called ‘unconstitutional’ before he decided to team up with Donald Trump. If folks want to play that game, we could do it all night.

“But I think what most Americans want to hear about is,” Buttigieg continued, calm as ever. “Are our families going to be better protected than they have been by this president, who’s failed to secure America in the face of one of the most dangerous things ever to happen to our country?” His answer clearly threw off his interviewers, who had to take a beat before moving on.

Buttigieg ran for president against both Harris and Biden in the 2020 Democrat primaries, but ultimately dropped out in March. He quickly endorsed Biden and began working with the former vice president, and later, Harris. He even reportedly helped Harris prepare for the October 7 event, standing in as Pence during mock debates.

Chris Evans is laying into Donald Trump after his outrageous claim that people shouldn’t be afraid of COVID-19 after his hospitalization. Chris says it was ‘reckless to a shocking degree.’

Captain America to the rescue again. This time the actor who plays him, Chris Evans, is lighting into President Donald Trump for his incredibly dangerous statement that people shouldn’t be “afraid” of catching COVID-19. Over 200,000 Americans have already died from the virus, and the 39-year-old star tore apart a new Trump tweet. POTUS make the completely bonkers claim that five days after his positive COVID-19 test and subsequent four day hospitalization, people shouldn’t let COVID “dominate their lives,” despite getting the best medical care in the country at taxpayers’ expense.

Don’t be afraid of Covid?!

You’ve been under round-the-clock care by the best doctors using the best drugs. Do you really think everyone has access to that?!

Sadly, I’m sure you’re aware of that disparity, you just don’t care

This is reckless to a shocking degree, even for you https://t.co/H8CGlD9DcZ

— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) October 5, 2020

“I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!” Trump tweeted on Oct. 5. The shocking amount of dangerous audacity in the tweet was enough for Chris to take to Twitter to call the 74-year-old.

“Don’t be afraid of Covid?! You’ve been under round-the-clock care by the best doctors using the best drugs. Do you really think everyone has access to that?! Sadly, I’m sure you’re aware of that disparity, you just don’t care This is reckless to a shocking degree, even for you,” Chris wrote, while retweeting the president’s outrageous statement.

Chris was referring to how Trump was treated by doctors at Walter Reed Medical Center with remdesivir, a drug not widely available to most people afflicted with COVID-19. In trial studies it helped patients recover 31 percent faster, and received an emergency authorization on May 2020 for those with the most severe cases of COVID-19, though it has not yet been approved by the FDA.

It is also expensive! Even with private insurance, one dose of the five day remsedivir program runs $520 out of pocket. And with two doses given on the first day, that means a patient would have to pay $3,120 for the treatment course. Which of course the president didn’t need to worry about because his treatment came for free. For most Americans, that kind of money — when coupled with a hospital stay and other treatments — is prohibitively expensive, even with health insurance.

Many fans were just as appalled about Trump’s tweet, thanking Chris for his response. @nanjaybri told Chris about Trump, “I’m crying while typing. My dad passed away from COVID. His tweet is one of the most offensive things I’ve seen. He’s mocking the 210,000+ who have died – mostly alone. My dad didn’t want COVID to dominate his life either.” User @MorgansTKDMom, responded to her comment, “Exactly! And for COMPLETELY FREE! No worries about how his family will pay for it.The worst part is, I’m not even surprised anymore. Or I’m surprised he didn’t do something worse. What the hell does that say about our country? Not a whole helluva lot sadly. #VoteHimOut.”

 @JennKnight14 responded to Chris by commenting, “We all knew he’d turn this into a political propaganda ploy. I mean look at his joy ride yesterday? And now with the ‘Covid isn’t that bad’: tell that to the 200,000+ that died or tell that to every one of their family members left behind.” She referring to Trump doing a “fan” drive-by in an enclosed SUV outside of his hospital on Oct. 4 with several Secret Service members inside with him. Trump was widely called out for endangering his masked employees’ health and lives for exposing them to COVID-19, just so that he could have his ego boosted by seeing supporters in person while still hospitalized.

Melania Trump Shocked By Stormy Daniels In New Winston Wolkoff Tape Released To ‘Mea Culpa’ Podcast

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, author of ‘Melania and Me’ has released an explosive new tape revealing how the First Lady was shocked by ‘Vogue’s decision to do a photoshoot of Stormy Daniels.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Melania Trump‘s former best friend and trusted advisor, shared with HollywoodLife a tape she recorded of a conversation in which FLOTUS finds out that Stormy Daniels, the adult actress who allegedly had an affair with her husband Donald Trump, landed a spread in Vogue. “It’s the porn hooker. Annie Leibovitz shot the porn hooker, and she’ll be in one of the issues,” Melania Trump says in the tape, which the Melania and Me author secretly recorded in July 2018.

When Winston Wolkoff asks her in confusion who Leibovitz, one of the most famous fashion photographers in the world, “shot,” Trump clarifies that it’s “Stormy.” The First Lady continued, “Oh, you didn’t read it? Yesterday [it] came up. For Vogue. She shot her.” Note: while Daniels has done adult films, there is no evidence to support the First Lady’s claim that she is a “hooker.” Trump, according to Winston Wolkoff, was in a state of disbelief because, while she appeared on the cover of Vogue in her wedding dress in 2005, she hadn’t been offered a cover since becoming First Lady. Daniels appeared in the August 2018 issue of Vogue with her lawyer, Michael Avenatti.

The conversation came six months after news broke that Daniels signed a non-disclosure agreement shortly before the 2016 United States presidential election about an affair she allegedly had with Trump in 2006, right after the birth of his youngest son, Barron Trump, with Melania. Daniels was paid $130,000 for her silence by Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen; Cohen is currently serving a three-year sentence in home confinement after pleading guilty in December 2018 to tax evasion and campaign finance violations. Winston Wolkoff, author of the best-selling Melania and Me, which is full of bombshell revelations about her intimate friendship with the First Lady, is the guest on the October 5 episode of Cohen’s podcast, Mea Culpa. this episode, she plays the shocking new Melania Trump tape.

In the episode, which was recorded before the President and First Lady were diagnosed with COVID-19, Winston Wolkoff shares new, intimate details about her friendship with Trump. HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with both Winston Wolkoff and Cohen before Mea Culpa‘s October 5 episode aired. The two actually have a lot in common. What Winston Wolkoff was to Melania, Cohen was to Donald, they explained. Cohen, who also recently released his own Trump tell-all, Disloyal, says that Winston Wolkoff is the “yin to my yang. You can’t really understand the evil of the power of two that’s living in our house, until you understand both.”

“What I found most interesting about Stephanie’s book is her interpretation and characterization of Melania,” he continued. “Because my interactions with [Melania], while many, are very different. I really learned a lot, especially in the very last question that I asked [Stephanie] in the podcast: ‘After they raided my home, my hotel room, my law office, and my safety deposit box, did [Melania] make any statements about me to you in regard to the raid and what was going on in my life?’” The answer was “upsetting,” Cohen said.

“I had spent so many years taking care of her issues, Donald’s issues, the kids’ issues, and she was just completely callous. And disinterested, identical to the way Trump behaved,” claimed Cohen. Winston Wolkoff and the future First Lady met in 2003, when she had just started dating Trump. The two women had lunch every month at the Mark Hotel in Manhattan and the Wolkoffs would vacation at Mar-a-Lago, she writes in Melania and Me, and their friendship continued when the Trumps made their move to DC.

The former director of special events at Vogue was an unofficial advisor to the First Lady until February 2018. She served as executive producer of Trump’s presidential inauguration in January 2017, and even helped FLOTUS craft her Be Best initiative. Their working relationship, and friendship ended in February 2018 after The New York Times reported that her company, SWW Creative, had been paid $26 million by Trump’s inauguration committee. Winston Wolkoff vehemently denies this. “Was I fired? No,” she told the outlet in 2019. “Did I personally receive $26 million or $1.6 million? No. Was I thrown under the bus? Yes.”

Stephanie also explained in a statement EXCLUSIVE to HollywoodLife why she decided to release the tapes: “When I wrote Melania and Me I knew that every word of it would be subject to potential scrutiny, so I made sure everything in the book was not only accurate, but fully provable. I will not sit back and allow the First Lady’s chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, continue claiming I am  [dishonest] to discredit the veracity of Melania and Me. Because the White House’s false claims about my character and integrity continue, I’ve had to take all appropriate steps to defend my name, which is why I released the tapes.”

Grisham told HollywoodLife in a statement in September after Melania and Me was published that, “This book is not only wildly self-aggrandizing, it’s just not truthful. It is an exercise in bizarre twisting of the truth and misguided blame for the sake of self-pity. It’s unfortunate and concerning that she’s overstated their friendship and her very brief role in the White House to this degree.”

Winston Wolkoff said that she taped her conversations with Trump for her “own protection and proof of innocence.” She explained via a statement to HollywoodLife that, “the First Lady, whom Stephanie regarded as a dear friend, told Stephanie that, the White House Counsel was tipped off to an investigation into the presidential inauguration committee’s spending of $107 million dollars, and although she and the President knew, ‘she [Stephanie] did nothing wrong,’ she would be made to take the blame for others’ misdeeds, self-dealings, false allegations, and financial improprieties.

Winston Wolkoff revealed that she “begged Melania to tell the truth” after the aforementioned The New York Times report about her firing. “Melania went so far as to tell Stephanie to ‘not to be so dramatic’ about the devastation it would cause to her life. At that point, it was painfully clear that Melania was no longer her friend,” she concluded in her statement to HollywoodLife.

HollywoodLife reached out to the White House for comment on this story but did not hear back as of press time.

Alec Baldwin’s Trump found his match with Jim Carrey’s Joe Biden as Maya Rudolph’s Kamala came into mediate. The pair hilariously faced off on ‘SNL’s premiere in an epic debate spoof.

Jim Carrey, 58, just slayed with his impression of Joe Biden, 77. In a sketch spoofing the Sept. 29 debate, Alec Baldwin, 62, reprised his role as Donald Trump, 74. “Boring!…let’s get this show off the road and off the rails,” Alec’s Trump retorted as Jim’s Joe made his way onto the stage with a measuring tape to ensure social distancing. When asked if he was ready, ‘Joe’ gave an honest answer: “Absolutely not. But I’ve got the beginning of 46 fantastic ideas that I may or may not have access to. Let’s do that while I hold my bladder.”

“I would love to begin with a list of complaints…Joe Biden is mean to me. The China virus is mean to me,” Alec’s Trump went on, as Jim’s Biden tried to get a word in. “Whatever you’re going to say no…he’s lying. I can’t point out of if he’s lying?” Alec cut in, once again interrupting with. “Will you just shut up, man? No Joe, no! Don’t lose control! That’s what he’s hoping for. Where was I?” Jim hilariously responded, clearly losing his cool.

Of course, Alec’s Donald had something to say about face masks. “I’ve got my mask right here in my pocket. But you don’t need a mask all the time. It’s like a seatbelt — you just wear it when you back out of your drive way then you take it off.” Maya Rudolph, 48, also returned with her brilliant version of Kamala Harris, 55 — putting on her best ‘Mom-ala’ face (her step kids’ nickname for her). “This stops right now. You do not treat my Joe like that, alright?” she said to Alec’s Trump.

“He’s a nice boy! Uh-uh Joe. Let Momala go to work. Look, Donald — I won’t you to apologize to Joe. I don’t care who started it, I don’t even care who sharted it,” she added. Cecily Strong, 36, as Kimberly Guilfoyle, 51, also made a hilarious cameo. Eventually, Jim’s Biden figured out the ultimate solution: hitting pause on Trump!

Of course, the actual debate — moderated by FOX News anchor Chris Wallace, 72 — spurred plenty of social media conversation. Answering a question about the nomination Amy Coney Barrett, 48, to the Supreme Court, Biden urged Americans to get out and make sure they “speak” by voting. “Why won’t you answer that question?” Trump interrupted, as a frustrated Biden retorted, “Would you just shut up, man?”

Anticipation has been building for Jim to appear on the upcoming season of SNL, who has hosted the series on several occasions. Notably, however, Jim was not part of the SNL cast at any point in his career — not making the cut after a 1980 audition! Show runner Lorne Michaels recently talked about Jim’s upcoming appearances as Joe Biden, which came to fruition after the Ace Ventura alum expressed interest. “There was some interest on [Jim]’s part. And then we responded, obviously, positively,” the longtime SNL executive producer told Vulture.

Sources close to the NBC production have also spilled that the upcoming season is set to be “politically charged” and this year perhaps more than ever. “Colin Jost and the rest of the writers and cast are very eager to dive into this presidential season with all hands-on deck,” an insider revealed. “[SNL staffers] can’t wait to work with Jim Carrey, Alec Baldwin and everyone else. There [are] going to be lots of skits and openers surrounding the election and whatever happens post-election. It will be a very big part of the show this season,” they also spilled.

Twitter users were left scratching their heads after Eric Trump said on Fox News that he was ‘part of the LGBT community.’ Did he misspeak?

Viewers were left confused when President Donald Trump‘s son, Eric Trump, said on Fox News that he was “part of the LGBT community.” Eric, 36, was asked on the September 29 episode of Fox & Friends about a lesbian New Yorker who supports his father’s presidential campaign. He responded, “I’m telling you, I see it every day, the LGBT community, they are incredible and you should see how they’ve come out in full force for my father every single day. I’m part of that community and we love the man and thank you for protecting our neighborhoods and thank you for protecting our cities.”

That gave viewers pause: did Eric just come out as a member of the LGBTQ community, or did he simply misspeak? The speculation ran rampant on Twitter. “eric trump coming out is not the birthday gift this homosexual wanted,” one Twitter user tweeted, while another asked, “Does @EricTrump
know what LGBT(Q) means?” Fair question! Others were livid over the chance that Eric could be exploiting the community to make his father look better before the upcoming presidential election.

After all, the Trump administration has a disastrous track record when it comes to LGBTQ rights. Just days after taking office in January 2017, the new president announced that he would be rolling back protections for transgender individuals in the military, including not allowing any new transgender recruits. “Time to pander to anything they can right before the election. Where were they for the past 4 years?” one critic wrote.

Eric said later in a statement to the New York Post that he was misunderstood during his Fox News interview, and merely trying to paraphrase. “To clarify, many of our close friends are part of the LGBT community, which was the intent of my statement — the left has taken that vote for granted for a long time and support from the gay community for my father is incredible,” he stated. “As to me personally, as I think you know, I am a happily married man to my wife, Lara.”

President Donald Trump announced that conservative Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett is his SCOTUS nomination pick 8 days after Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death left a vacant seat in the Supreme Court.

(UPDATE: 9/26/20 @ 5 p.m. EST): Donald Trump made the decision via livestream at 5:00pm EST on Saturday, September 26. Walking out onto the stage with Amy Coney Barrett by his side, Trump addressed the crowd. “This is my third such nomination…and it is a very proud moment indeed. Over the past week our nation has mourned the loss of a true American legend, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” he said, going on to name Amy. “We gather to continue our never ending task of equal justice. It is my honor to nominate one of our nation’s most brilliant and gifted legal minds. She is a woman of achievement, sterling credentials and loyalty to the constitution — judge Amy Coney Barrett,” he said.
“Her qualifications are unsurpassed and her record is beyond reproach. It should be straight forward and prompt,” he added, detailing her various accomplishments “I know that you will make our country very, very proud…at Notre Dame, she was beloved by her students. Three times she was nominated by her students as professor of the year. She’s a woman of remarkable intellect, he also said.

“Thank you very much, Mr. President. I am so grateful…I fully understand that this is a momentous decision for a President,” Amy said in her own speech. “If I have the honor of being confirmed, I pledge to do this job to the best of my ability. I love the United States and the constitution, I am truly humbled. Should I be confirmed, I will be mindful of those who came before me,” she said, paying tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Donald Trump has revealed his plan to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who sadly died at the age of 87 following a battle with cancer. Her death has given the President the rare opportunity to nominate a third candidate to the Supreme Court in just one term, and he has released a list of his top picks. “It will be a woman — a very talented, very brilliant woman,” Trump said at a September 19 rally. “I think it should be a woman. I actually like women much more than I like men.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has pledged to hold a vote on her replacement, and the current frontrunner is Amy Coney Barrett. Here’s 5 things to know about her:

1. Amy has very conservative views. She is a devout Catholic and has previously stated that “life begins at conception.” She also said that justices should not be strictly bound by Supreme Court precedents, and some critics believe that would leave open the possibility for her to vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, given her anti-abortion views. Amy is also an “originalist” which means she believes in basing her rulings and interpreting the Constitution how she believes the Founding Fathers would have. She also signed a joint letter in 2015, asserting that marriage is “founded on the indissoluble commitment of a man and a woman”.

2. She currently serves on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. She was confirmed to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 2017. During her confirmation hearing, she went toe-to-toe with the Senate Judiciary Committee Senator Dianne Feinstein, after she questioned whether her religious views would cloud her legal decision making. “The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern when you come to big issues that people have fought for years in this country,” Dianne said, to which Amy quipped back, “It’s never appropriate for a judge to impose that judge’s personal convictions, whether they arise from faith or anywhere else, on the law.”

3. Amy would be the youngest Supreme Court Justice. At 48 years old, she would be the youngest Justice on the Supreme Court if appointed and confirmed. She would also be the fifth woman to ever serve on the top bench, and could hold her position for decades.

4. She was already a top contender in 2018. Two years ago, it was reported that Amy was a frontrunner to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, so it’s clear she has been front of mind to Trump for some time.

5. Amy has seven children. The Louisiana native is now married to former assistant United States Attorney Jesse Barrett. The couple share seven children, five biological and two — Vivian and John Peter — were adopted from Haiti.

‘SNL’ Gearing Up For A ‘Politically Charged’ New Season With Many Jim Carrey & Alec Baldwin Skits Amid Election

With Alec Baldwin reprising his iconic portrayal of Donald Trump & Jim Carrey on board to play Joe Biden, season 46 of ‘SNL’ is going to be epic!

Saturday Night Live is perhaps best known for its politically-themed sketches, and fans can be assured that the upcoming 46th season isn’t going to disappoint! “SNL is always politically charged and this year will be no different. Colin Jost and the rest of the writers and cast are very eager to dive into this presidential season with all hands-on deck,” a source close to production tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. Notably, Colin serves as co-anchor on “Weekend Update” as well as a writer on the series.

With the presidential election coming up on Nov. 2, showrunner Lorne Michaels has already got Alec Baldwin, 62, back on board to play Donald Trump, as well as comic legend Jim Carrey, 58, to tackle the role of Joe Biden. “[SNL staffers] can’t wait to work with Jim Carrey, Alec Baldwin and everyone else. There [are] going to be lots of skits and openers surrounding the election and whatever happens post-election. It will be a very big part of the show this season,” the insider also revealed. After a series of “At-Home” episodes to close out season 45, SNL will be back at Studio 8H for it’s upcoming Oct. 3 premiere.

Recently, Lorne opened up about his decision to bring Jim on board. “There was some interest on [Jim]’s part. And then we responded, obviously, positively,” the longtime SNL executive producer told Vulture. “But it came down to discussions about what the take was. He and Colin Jost had a bunch of talks. He and I as well. He will give the part energy and strength, and…Hopefully it’s funny,” he added, laughing. While Jim has hosted SNL a number of times over the years, the Ace Ventura actor was never a full-time cast member on the NBC series. He did, however, audition for the show back in 1980 (and didn’t make the cut).

In the interview, Lorne also clarified that he doesn’t view Jim and Alec’s appearances as “celebrity cameos” — noting that Woody Harrelson also portrayed Joe Biden last season. “I honestly don’t think of them as celebrity cameos….Alec Baldwin’s probably done the show 25 or 30 times. He’s just part of an extended group in the same way that if Tina Fey has something meaningful to say on Update, we’d welcome her,” he explained. “It’s the same way with Maya [Rudolph, as Kamala] — you saw what she brought to it. So, I don’t think of it that way. Beck [Bennett] will be doing Pence because he does it brilliantly…But I’m thrilled Jim’s doing it.”

Celebs like Gabrielle Union, Kerry Washington, and Porsha Williams have spoken out after the officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s death weren’t charged with murder.

Porsha Williams is among the stars who have reacted to news that the police officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor will not face murder charges. The Kentucky native was tragically shot and killed by police in her own apartment while she was sleeping on March 13. It was announced on September 23 that former Louisville officer Brett Hankison had been indicted by a grand jury on first-degree wanton endangerment charges in relation to the home invasion — but not for her death. The other two officers at the scene — John Mattingly and Myles Cosgrove — were not charged.

A post shared by #PorshaWilliams (@porsha4real) on Sep 23, 2020 at 2:07pm PDT

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who has already been arrested twice for protesting Breonna’s death, took to Instagram in response to the news. “You deserved so much more #BreonnaTaylor ! I am praying for your mother Tamika and the rest of your family today,” she captioned a selfie of the 26-year-old who died at the hands of cops. “As hard as this verdict is for us to digest, I can’t imagine how she must feel. Shame on America’s racist justice system. Will I be next?? This has to change ! #NoJusticeNoPeace.”

She also shared a flyer on Instagram, which promoted a rally in support of Breonna. “#Atlanta Y’all know what time it is!!!! Today at 5pm!!! #justiceforbreonnataylor,” she captioned the post. Gabrielle Union also spoke out, tweeting a Malcom X quote which read, “The most disrespected person in America is the black woman. The most unprotected person in America is the black woman. The most neglected person in America is the black woman.”

Other celebs like Common, Amber Riley, and Garcelle Beauvais have taken to social media to express their thoughts about the seemingly lesser charges. Actress Kerry Washington addressed the issue on Twitter, and also urged fans to vote in the November election. “Daniel Cameron is on Donald Trump’s short list as replacement of #RGB on the Supreme Court.

Kim Klacik: 5 Things To Know About GOP Congressional Candidate Who Was Kicked Off ‘The View’

This Nov., GOP candidate Kim Klacik is hoping to fill Elijah Cummings congressional seat in Baltimore. Here’s what else you need to know about the candidate, including why she got kicked off ‘The View.’

Republican Congressional candidate Kim Klacik, 38, became a household name on September 18 when her appearance on The View went absolutely haywire. After co-host Joy Behar criticized her for defending President Donald Trump, she shot back by reminding Behar that she once did blackface. Cue an all-out fight between Klacik, Behar, and co-host Sunny Hostin, that ended up with Klacik getting booted from the show mid-interview. Here’s what else you should know about her:

1. She’s running for Elijah Cummings’ Congressional seat. Klacik, a Republican, is hoping to fill the seat in Congress left empty after Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings’ death in December 2019. She already ran in the special election in April 2020, but lost to Democrat Kweisi Mfume. On The View, she blamed her loss on the pandemic after co-host Sunny Hostin said the Black community didn’t vote for her.

The ladies of @TheView didn’t like what I had to say, so naturally they cut me off.

Why are they silencing Black Women?

Hey, @JoyVBehar — I think your White Privilege is showing through your blackface! pic.twitter.com/d39hPOAPOV

— Kimberly Klacik (@kimKBaltimore) September 18, 2020

 

2. She spoke at the 2020 RNC. Klacik opened the 2020 Republican National Convention with a speech disparaging Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for a controversial joke made in a May interview — that Black Americans who vote for Trump “ain’t Black.” She stated, “Joe Biden believes we can’t think for ourselves, that the color of someone’s skin dictates their political views. We’re not buying the lies anymore. You and your party have neglected us for far too long. [Trump] is bringing the American spirit to life for all Americans.”

3. She is the Executive Director of a nonprofit called Potential Me. The nonprofit’s mission, according to their site, is “to provide disadvantaged women with the tools needed to obtain a career and gain financial independence. Professional & successful are related.” That includes providing professional clothing for disadvantaged women so they can look their best for interviews and jobs.

4. She has been endorsed by Donald Trump. A Klacik campaign ad, in which she claimed Democrats didn’t want you to see the “real” Baltimore, caught Trump’s attention. After all, he previously disparaged Cummings, calling the district “rat-infested.” Trump tweeted the ad out to his followers, and later, formally endorsed her: “Kimberly Klacik is working hard to help the people of Baltimore.

Ever wondered what Donald and Melania Trump are really like behind the scenes? These five authors are delivering answers about the Trumps with fascinating tell-alls that are absolute must-reads.

If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, we may receive an affiliate commission.

We know President Donald Trump, 74, and First Lady Melania Trump, 50, from their public personas — the awkward PDA, the tense joint appearances, his bizarre bravado and her stoicism. But behind closed curtains at the White House? Not so much. A number of must-read books about Melania and Donald’s private lives hit bookshelves in 2019 and 2020, and we’ve gathered the best of the best. From a psychological dive into Donald’s past, and a tell-all from Melania’s BFF, you’re not going to want to put these down:

1. Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady

If you’ve ever wondered what Melania was really thinking when she heard that Access Hollywood tape of her husband Donald making vulgar comments about groping women, you’re in luck. The First Lady’s former BFF, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, shares the mom-of-one’s jaw-dropping reaction in her juicy tell-all, Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady.

Wolkoff and Melania’s 15-year friendship was left in tatters after she was accused of pocketing $26 million (via her firm) for helping to plan President Trump’s January 2017 inauguration. It’s an allegation that she denies and she has receipts to prove it. Wolkoff has other receipts – text messages and (according to her Sept. 1 MSNBC interview with Rachel Maddow) taped conversations. All allegedly revealing Melania’s closely guarded tidbits, like why she wore that “I don’t really care” jacket and more. A must-read. $17, amazon.com

2. The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump

With an exhaustive look into Melania’s pre-Donald life and journey to the White House, Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan works to destroy the “Free Melania” trope and prove that the First Lady’s not complacent — she’s complicit. The Art of Her Deal, a play on Donald’s famed 1987 memoir, dissects the Trumps’ relationship and reveals the power and influence Melania supposedly wields over her husband, like renegotiating her prenup before moving to the White House. $17, amazon.com

3. Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man

Who better to reveal the inner workings of the Trump family than one of the Trumps themselves? Mary Trump, the president’s estranged niece, uses her background as a psychologist to dissect how being the son of a ruthless shark, Fred Trump, molded Donald into the man he is today: a “three-year-old” who is “incapable of growing, learning, or evolving, unable to regulate his emotions, moderate his responses, or take in and synthesize information.”

In Too Much and Never Enough, Mary describes a cold and brutal upbringing for Donald and his siblings, including her late father, Fred Jr. After her grandfather’s death in 1999, Mary and her brother learned that they had been excluded from his will, and their cordial relationship with Donald turned frosty. The Trump family tried and failed, to block the book’s publication. It’s unsurprising that this fascinating read sold over one million copies in the first 24 hours after its release. $17, amazon.com

4. Free, Melania – The Unauthorized Biography

Emphasis on unauthorized. Journalist Kate Bennett‘s Free, Melania reveals intimate details about the First Lady’s interactions with the women around her, alleging that she has an “icy” relationship with Second Lady Karen Pence, and that the “I don’t really care” jacket was a jab at stepdaughter Ivanka Trump. In fact, all of Melania’s fashion choices are conscious, according to Bennett. That “pussy bow” blouse Melania wore after the Access Hollywood tape dropped? That wasn’t an accident. $13, amazon.com

5. Disloyal: A Memoir

Donald’s former lawyer puts it bluntly in the foreword of his scathing account of his 12 years working for the president: “I know where the skeletons are buried because I’m the one that buried them.” Michael Cohen has a remarkable memory, detailing dozens of business meetings with The Apprentice host turned Commander in Chief, who he once felt honored working for. And it’s not pretty. From calling his teenage daughter a “piece of ass,” to allegedly saying that Black and Hispanic voters were “stupid,” the book is full of revelations that will shock even the most cynical reader. $22, amazon.com

Cardi B replied to Candace Owens’ comments that Joe Biden was ‘pandering’ by allowing Cardi to interview him, blasting the conservative for calling her ‘dumb’ & ‘illiterate.’

Cardi B, 27, just clapped back at Candace Owens, 31, in a major way. The Invasion of Privacy rapper and conservative political activist exchanged a series of heated messages on Sunday, Sept. 6 after Candace criticized Cardi’s recent interview with Joe Biden, 77, for Elle magazine. “[The interview] is one of the biggest insults…This would be akin to Donald Trump saying, ‘I’m going to give no interviews’ but he decided to give an interview to Justin Bieber. It would be absurd…it’s because you’re pandering,” Candace said to Ben Shapiro.

Since most black people didn’t have the spine to admit that @benshapiro was 100% correct about @iamcardib and how her music and platform contributes to the disintegration of black culture and values…here you go. #WAP #SundaySpecial pic.twitter.com/q5QxxX9G4e

— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) September 6, 2020

She went on to dub Cardi — née Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar — “illiterate” in the clip posted to her Instagram account. “[Joe’s team] looks at Cardi B’s Instagram, you see millions of followers, and you think, ‘okay, this is an illiterate person and if I appeal to this person that says okurr in the middle of the interview…Black people will vote for me.’ Basically saying, ‘Black people you are stupid, you are dumb. And you’re so foolish’,” Candace went on, accusing Joe of being “handled” and being told “‘Black people like this person. This is what they’re into. Talk to her.’”

Yes you are right I have the number 1 song & I have a huge platform and I can make millions go vote to get the MAN THAT USED YOU .I don’t want to argue with you Candace I really don’t have the time .I honestly just feel sorry for you. https://t.co/haACwKRN13

Cardi quickly replied to Candace’s accusations, reminding her that she currently has the #1 song with “WAP” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, 25. “Yes you are right I have the number 1 song & I have a huge platform and I can make millions go vote to get the MAN THAT USED YOU. I don’t want to argue with you Candace I really don’t have the time. I honestly just feel sorry for you,” Cardi tweeted, also explaining that her sister Hennessy Carolina, 24, was “harassed” in the Hamptons with her girlfriend by “Trump supporters.”

Candace retorted, “To clarify—Joe Biden ‘gotta talk’ to you because you have the number 1 song and Santa Claus was harassing your sister?” sarcastically adding “Um. K. Thanks for clearing that one up.” The Blackout: How Black America Can Make Its Second Escape from the Democrat Plantation author then blasted Cardi for her support of Biden. “You are encouraging MILLIONS to go vote for the man that locked up entire generations of Black men. Maybe go google: JOE BIDEN AND 1994 CRIME BILL,” she wrote, adding “Joe Biden used you. Bernie Sanders used you. Neither one of them like or know your music. They think you’re dumb.”

& you are encouraging millions to vote for a man who laugh Everytime a black men gets killed by a cop and tell millions of Americans to drink bleach🤷🏽‍♀️ Trump didn’t even have you talking at the Republican convention 😩He thinks you’re dumb.MASA did you dirty but you mad at me ? https://t.co/0gWcIpInS7

Cardi then clapped back, “And you are encouraging millions to vote for a man who laugh every time a Black men gets killed by a cop and tell millions of Americans to drink bleach…Trump didn’t even have you talking at the Republican convention. He thinks you’re dumb. [MAGA] did you dirty but you mad at me?” explaining to her fans that Candace “needs to be mad at Trump not me.”

From there, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper took to Instagram to blast Candace in an 8-minute video. “It’s not a secret I use my platform to encourage people to vote. I love politics…today, Candace Owens said some real nasty things about me,” Cardi explained to her 75 million followers. “Joe Biden sat down with me to speak with me…and why wouldn’t he? I have millions of followers. I pay millions in taxes. I have the #1 song in this country…I can encourage millions of followers to go vote,” she said.

Listen she needs to be mad at Trump not me !After all that hard work she did supporting him he did not pick her to speak at the Republican convention. https://t.co/MYKSVzzBik

“Why is your president race hating against Hispanic and Black people? The people that get killed the most by police, b—-. You wanna call me a dumb b—-, you wanna call be illiterate — girl, you’re getting pimped out by a white man…this man doesn’t even have the decency to let you talk at the Republican Convention,” Cardi also said in the charged video.

An awkward moment with Kim Jong Un ended with an even more awkward comment from Donald Trump, Sarah Huckabee Sanders writes in her new memoir. He joked that they should hook up!

Sarah Huckabee Sanders reveals in her upcoming memoir, Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House, that Donald Trump once told her to “take one for the team” and hook up with Kim Jong Un. The former White House press secretary, 38, writes that the president made the joke after the North Korean leader allegedly “hit on” her during an event in Singapore in June 2018, according to The New York Times. Sanders described herself as “stunned” after they “made direct eye contact and Kim nodded and appeared to wink at me.”

“I quickly looked down and continued taking notes and for the rest of the meeting only looked up from my notes in the direction of the US delegation,” she wrote about the summit. She recalled the incident with Kim later to Trump and the White House chief of staff at the time, John F. Kelly, during the flight back to the United States on Air Force One. The two men “burst out laughing,” Sanders said. “Kim winked at you? Are you telling me Kim Jong-un hit on you!?!?” Trump asked her, incredulously.

She insisted that wasn’t what she meant, and asked Trump to cut it out. “Well, Sarah, that settles it,” Sanders said the president joked. “You’re going to North Korea and taking one for the team! Your husband and kids will miss you, but you’ll be a hero to your country!” She stressed that it was a joke, and writes glowingly about the president throughout her memoir, according to The New York Times.

The summit between the US and North Korea was to reach an agreement to “cooperate for the development of new… relations and for the promotion of peace, prosperity, and security of the Korean Peninsula and of the world,” per the White House. It was the beginning of Trump’s tenuous relationship with Kim after initially threatening him with nuclear proliferation on Twitter. Trump became the first US president to step foot in North Korea one year later.

Mary Trump Reveals Secret Recordings Of Donald’s Sister Dissing His Kids: Eric Is ‘Moron’ & Ivanka Is A ‘Mini-Donald’

Mary Trump is spilling more tea about her uncle Donald Trump and his kids. She released a taped conversation with Trump’s sister, who threw shade at Ivanka and Eric.

Mary Trump‘s book about her uncle Donald Trump, 74, turned out to be the tip of the iceberg when revealing family tensions. She already released Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man and now she’s sharing secretly recorded conversations with her aunt, Donald’s 83-year-old sister Maryanne Trump Barry. In them, Maryanne calls Donald’s 36-year-old son Eric Trump a “moron” and Ivanka Trump a “mini Donald.” Which for the tycoon, he’d probably take the latter as a compliment considering how much he worships and adores Ivanka.

Mary — who is the daughter of the president’s late brother Fred Trump — released the conversations with Maryanne on the Aug. 28 edition of MSNBC’s The ReidOut, with Joy Reid. In New York, secret recordings like Mary’s are legal with one party’s consent, which in this case is Mary who taped her aunt. Maryanne is heard allegedly saying, “Meanwhile, Eric’s become the moron publicly. Ivanka gives a [ bleep ]. She’s all about her.”  Mary agrees, replying “Yeah, she’s a mini Donald,” to which Maryanne replies, “She’s a mini Donald, but yet he’s besotted with her. He always has been. She’s always been his favorite.” That much is obvious to everyone with working eyes, as even Trump’s own wife Melania, 50, seems painfully aware of that fact.

Maryanne also thought it was incredibly heartless that Ivanka shared a social media photo holding her son on the same day that news broke that more than 1,500 immigrant children had been unaccounted for after being separated from their parents at the Mexico border, under the Trump administration’s cruel policy.

“When that damn Ivanka puts this picture of the Madonna and child on Instagram when the big news of the day was how kids are being ripped from their families,” Maryanne said. “I couldn’t blame — I’d never heard of Samantha Bee before. I couldn’t blame what she said.”

Bee famously called Ivanka a “feckless c*nt” for her mother and son post. The Full Frontal host said on her May 30, 2018 show, “Ivanka Trump, who works at the White House, chose to post the second most oblivious tweet we’ve seen this week. Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices you feckless c*nt!” Bee later apologized for what she said after a fury of complaints from Republicans about the word she used towards Ivanka.

Maryanne also called her brother a tightwad, noting that their father was notoriously cheap as well. “And then you get Donald who won’t do anything for anybody unless it’s going to inure to his —I mean, he won’t do any — publicly,” she said. “I mean, if you — anything he did, he says, ‘Look what I’ve done. Aren’t I wonderful?’ And he’s as tight as a duck’s ass. Just like dad was, really.” During her show, Joy Reid noted that they had reached out to Maryanne Trump Barry for comment about the tapes, but she did not respond.
