Donald Trump is considering pardoning TV star Martha Stewart

US President Donald Trump is considering pardoning television personality Martha Stewart.

“I think to a certain extent Martha Stewart was harshly and unfairly treated,” he told reporters aboard air force One overnight, the New York Postreports.

“And she used to be my biggest fan in the world … before I became a politician,” he said. “But that’s okay, I don’t view it that way.”

Stewart was found guilty in 2004 of conspiracy charges and of making false statements to federal investigators during an insider-trading investigation into her sale of ImClone stock just before it plunged in value.

She spent five months in a federal prison in West Virginia, and served another five months under house arrest.

Mr Trump appears to be right that she is no longer a fan of his — she gave the finger to a portrait of him at an art fair in New York last year.

However, while Mr Trump is no doubt displeased at Stewart’s comments about him those feelings pale in comparison to how he feels about the man who prosecuted her case.

The US lawyer for the Southern District of New York in 2003 who got Stewart thrown in prison was none other than former FBI boss James Comey.

Mr Comey was fired by Mr Trump last year and has since written a book scathing about the US President.

Mr Trump also said he was thinking of commuting the sentence of disgraced former politician Illinois Govenor Rod Blagojevich.

Blagojevich has been behind bars since 2012 and is about halfway through serving a 14-year-sentence on public corruption charges for trying to sell a state Senate seat once held by Barack Obama.

“Plenty of other politicians have said a lot worse. And it doesn’t, he shouldn’t have been put in jail,” Mr Trump said.

“If you read his statement it was a foolish statement there was a lot of bravado.”

In 2010, Mr Trump fired Blagojevich when he appeared on his Celebrity Apprentice show on NBC.

In a commentary piece published in the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, Blagojevich claimed he was the victim of the country’s out-of-control law enforcement agencies.

“The rule of law is under assault in America. It is being perverted and abused by the people sworn to enforce and uphold it,” he wrote in the newspaper. “Some in the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation are abusing their power to criminalise the routine practices of politics and government. ”

President Trump has been focused on pardoning in recent days. He granted a full pardon to conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza who was convicted of making illegal contributions in a Senate race in New York.

“Will be giving a Full Pardon to Dinesh D’Souza today. He was treated very unfairly by our government! ​,” he tweeted.

A day earlier he also met with Kim Kardashian at the White House to discuss the pardoning of US grandmother Alice Marie Johnson, who is serving a life sentence without parole for a first-time, nonviolent offence. She’s been in an Alabama prison for 21 years.

Twitter Drags 43-Year-Old Conservative Pundit for Aging Like an Avocado

Millions of people watched Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding on TV and online.

After the fairytale wedding came the Royal Wedding dress debate, with fans and pop culture/political analysts discussing who had the best wedding dress between the Duchess of Sussex (Meghan) and her new sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton).

“Political dummy” Katie Hopkins weighed in on the debate, saying that it was “no competition,” because, in her opinion, Kate had a certain level of “class” that Meghan doesn’t possess, which wasn’t a surprising comment coming from someone like Katie Hopkins, who has no problem letting people know her distaste for people of color.

A bit of a backstory before we move forward with the hilarious memes: Katie Hopkins is a far-right commentator from the United Kingdom who has said a number of vile things against brown people, including calling someone a “jiggaboo” on Twitter and implying that immigrants should be shot if they try to enter the U.K.

So when Katie—an old, dried up crustacean—came for the insanely beautiful Princess Meghan, Twitter used a bunch of hilarious memes putting the 43-year-old beside folks who are OLDER and prettier than her to let her know she looks terrible for her age, or, as someone put it, she’s “43 going on 93.”

In other words, how the hell are you gonna come for someone’s looks when you’re aging like an avocado?

Also, this is what happens when you’re ugly on the inside:

And y’all… Lemme tell you… the juxtapositions were some of the funniest stuff I’ve ever witnessed on social media, and I’ve been doing this internet thing for a WHILE now.

Take a look at some of my favorites below:

In the words of every black grandma that ever lived, “God don’t like ugly.”

Maybe in the future, Katie Hopkins will think before she speaks. But, who the are we kidding? She’s going to keep spewing foul hateful things from that hole in her face and Twitter is just going to keep dragging her for filth, as they should.

Comedian Samantha Bee sorry for Ivanka Trump c**t slur

FULL Frontal host Samantha Bee has apologised after she used an extreme vulgarity to slam Ivanka Trump in her monologue over a photograph the first daughter shared on social media, calling her a “feckless c**t.

The apology came a day after Bee used the slur on her show.

“I would like to sincerely apologise to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on my show to describe her last night,” Bee said in a statement, Fox News reported. “It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.”

TBS, the network that airs Full Frontal, also issued an apology shortly after Bee’s tweet: “Samantha Bee has taken the right action in apologising for the vile and inappropriate language she used about Ivanka Trump last night. Those words should not have been aired. It was our mistake too, and we regret it.”

White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders slammed Bee as “vile,” “vicious,” and “not fit for broadcast” and demanded Time Warner, which owns TBS and CNN, “demonstrate that such explicit profanity about female members of this administration will not be condoned on its network.”

Ivanka Trump was criticised by several celebrities this week for a snap she shared of her hugging her son amid reports the Office of Refugee Resettlement lost track of 1500 immigrant children in the last three months of 2017.

“Ivanka Trump, who works at the White House, chose to post the second most oblivious tweet we’ve seen this week,” Bee said, citing Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet as the first.

“You know, 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**t!

“He listens to you! Put on something tight and low cut and tell your father to f**king stop it. Tell him it was an Obama thing and see how it goes,” she concluded.

The clip of Bee’s monologue was uploaded to her YouTube channel where the words “c**t” and “f**k” were not censored.

Bee’s show, Full Frontal, airs weekly on TBS, an asset of Turner Broadcasting System which also owns CNN, TNT and HLN.

Bee is due to receive a special honour from the Television Academy tonight for “advancing social change” for her work on the show.

The host’s comments were criticised by social media users with some calling for her show to be cancelled.

“If this statement had been addressed to a child of a former president, Samantha Bee would be out of a job,” one social media user wrote.

“Roseanne deserved to get fired for her comment. Samantha Bee called Ivanka a ‘c**t’ on air and Keith Olbermann routinely calls the President a ‘motherf**ker.’ Do you think either will get fired? Maybe see why so many Americans think there’s a media double-standard for liberals,” another tweeted.

Dan Gainor, the vice president of business and culture for Media Research Centre, told Fox News there was a double standard.

“Immediately after the media correctly criticised Roseanne Barr for a racist statement, Samantha Bee tries to outdo her by calling Ivanka Trump the ‘C’ word. Imagine if a conservative did this to Chelsea Clinton or to the Obama daughters. We’d never hear the end of it,” Mr Gainor told Fox News.

“Today media are freaking out about an incorrect (President) Trump tweet saying ABC never apologised for Brian Ross’s incompetent reporting that tanked the stock market,” he said. “They aren’t covering Samantha Bee at all. They would rather protect a discredited journalist than address the insane and hateful comments that come from one of their favourite TV people. ABC set the media-approved standard this week for misbehaviour. When someone does something this disgusting, their show is cancelled.”

Wayment. Did “Dro” and “Tasha” From “Insecure” Just Have a Baby Together?!

Earlier this week, the internet whipped out their Sherlock Holmes magnifying glasses to try and figure out the answer to one burning question: Did “Dro” and “Tasha” from Insecure Just have a baby together?!

Facts: Dominique Perry, who plays Tasha on the hit HBO series Insecure, just gave birth to a healthy, beautiful baby girl. She posted a photo of her daughter, Zen, on Instagram.

Also facts: Fellow Insecure actor Sarunas J. Jackson, who plays Dro on the series, posted another black-and-white photo of a healthy, beautiful baby girl on Instagram Tuesday morning with the caption “NWTS,” referencing Drake’s 2013 album Nothing Was the Same. Social media sleuths immediately noticed the similarities of the photos, despite them being from different angles.

Even more facts: Dominique deleted her photo, essentially confirming that, yup, that’s Sarunas’ baby.

So now that those facts are out of the way, let’s get into the drama.

While fans of the show sent their congratulations to Perry and Jackson on social media, Jackson’s girlfriend, Kaylen Zahara, wrote on social media that she found out about her boyfriend’s new baby online with the rest of world. She posted a video on Instagram talking about how she’s “dodging f**kboy after f**kboy” and even made an “insecure” reference (LOL).

“Ladies, listen to your intuition! These dudes will be in your crib, eating your food & laying up with you, taking you on dates, etc but got kids on the way without you knowing,” she wrote. “These insecure men can never keep it 100. Congrats tho.”

A few hours later, Zahara followed that posts up by saying that she and Jackson were “great friends” and had “cleared the air.”

“I found out with the rest of the world so I ran with my feelings,” she wrote in a response to a commenter. “Sarunas and I are great friends and we’ve cleared the air! No foul play or games were played. He’s going to be an amazing father & we are going to continue to be close friends!”

So, despite their lack of confirmation, it looks like Dominique Perry (“Tasha”) and Sarunas J. Jackson (“Dro”) definitely had a baby together. Meanwhile, The Shade Room says they’ve confirmed “from a reliable source” that Jackson is the father of Perry’s daughter Zen.

So, there you have it, folks! Insecure’s TV drama done spilled on over into real life.

Donald Trump petitioner Kim Kardashian’s criminal justice cases

DONALD Trump has issued a pardon after Kim Kardashian West’s White House visit — but it isn’t the one she was pushing for.

The US President announced he would pardon Dinesh D’Souza, a conservative author who pleaded guilty to arranging illegal campaign donations.

Mr Trump said Mr D’Souza was “treated very unfairly by our government!”

The 71-year-old said he was also considering a pardon for Martha Stewart, who was found guilty in 2004 on charges of conspiracy, obstruction of an agency proceeding, and making false statements to investigators over a stock sale.

He also said he may commute the sentence of former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, who was convicted on multiple charges of corruption, including attempting to “sell” a Senate seat.

Stewart hosted a spinoff of The Apprentice in 2005, while Blagojevich appeared as a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice.

Kim’s meeting with the President to ask for a pardon of Alice Johnson had the world divided, with many appalled at the image of the two reality stars wielding power at the White House.

Despite dressing in a conservative black suit to petition the President over prison sentencing, TV star Kim was ridiculed for her efforts.

But the 36-year-old is not one to be silenced by her critics — and she has another, even more heartbreaking, case to fight.

Kim’s appearance at the White House came after Mr Trump’s daughter Ivanka put her in touch with husband Jared Kushner, for whom prison reform is a top priority.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star had a series of phone calls with Mr Kushner about Johnson’s case before the attention-grabbing visit.

Johnson has been in prison since 1996, serving a life sentence without parole for a non-violent drug offence — her first — in which she relayed phone messages. The President has the power to pardon her.

Perhaps remarkably, prison reform is an issue close to Kim’s heart, and she has been quietly working on the issue behind the scenes, consulting her own lawyers and funding a new team for Johnson.

Another case she’s supporting is that of Cyntoia Brown, imprisoned aged 16 for killing a man who had allegedly drawn her into prostitution and sexually assaulted her.

Brown, from Tennessee, was charged for murder as an adult after she admitted to fatally shooting the 43-year-old she said was using her as a sex slave.

Kim isn’t the only celebrity to have spoken out about her case: Cara Delevinge, Snoop Dogg and Rihanna have also voiced their outrage after the story recently went viral as Brown returned to court to plead for clemency.

The hashtag #FreeCyntoiaBrown began trending and a petition circulating calling for a presidential pardon, with Kim saying she had called her lawyers to see what could be done,

The 29-year-old was imprisoned for 60 years, 51 without parole, in 2004 after she was allegedly trafficked by a pimp nicknamed “Kut-throat” in Nashville, Tennessee. She had run away from home and needed somewhere to stay.

Brown said she was repeatedly drugged, raped by different men at gunpoint and choked until she passed out at his hotel room over several days, until she was purchased by a real estate agent for sex.

Ex-militaryman Johnny Allen took her to his home, where he had a stash of guns, and allegedly behaved in a threatening manner.

While lying in bed, Allen rolled over and Brown said thought he was reaching for one of his firearms on the floor. She shot and killed him with a gun she kept stashed in her handbag.

“Cyntoia’s sentence is wholly disproportionate for a 16-year-old girl, and therefore unconstitutional,” Marsha Levick, deputy director and chief counsel for the Juvenile Law Center, argued in a statement.

Riya Saha Shah, senior supervising lawyer at the Juvenile Law Center, said sentencing practices in Tennessee were “unduly harsh, foreclosing both any realistic opportunity for parole or any individualised consideration.”

Republican Governor Haslam has not granted any clemency cases in his tenure.

Kim told Mic, whose social video alerted her to Johnson’s case, that the great-grandmother was the first “of many” prisoners she would fight for.

“If you think about a decision that you’ve made in your life and you get life without the possibility of parole for your first-time, non-violent offence, there’s just something so wrong with that,” she said.

“In all honesty, how I felt I was like, where I’m at in my life right now, to go and spend my money buying material things just doesn’t satisfy me the way that it used to.

“I’m just at a different my place in my life, so I thought, ‘Well, if I could put the money into a shopping spree, which sounds ridiculous, to save someone’s life, and do that once a year, then that would make me, just my heart fuller.”

Whatever you think of the Kardashians, sending a reality star to promote important causes with the fame-obsessed President doesn’t sound like a terrible idea.

And while Kim was criticised for engaging with Mr Trump, the tactic might just work.

Although husband Kanye West recently revealed his admiration for the President in a string of strange tweets and caused widespread offence, Kim was a vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton.

“I’m just focused on criminal-justice reform and helping one person at a time. And so far, the White House has been really receptive to my calls, and I’m grateful for that,” she said. “And I’m not going to stop that because people personally don’t like Trump.”

Mr Kushner has made prison reform a priority after his father’s time in the system, and recently pushed through a bill called the First Step Act. It is uncertain, however, whether it will make it through the Senate.

Mr Trump has at times talked tough on criminal punishment, although he said he would sign the act and has pardoned prisoners with strong media or celebrity backing, such as late boxer Jack Johnson.

Barack Obama pardoned more than 1700 people in prison for non-violent drug crimes.

As Kim points out, social media can be powerful, allowing young people to learn about issues and speak out on them. “You can see something that change your life and others.”

Chicago YouTube Vlogger Killed in Drive By Shooting

3Zachary Stoner had a popular YouTube channel called “ZackTV” (aka “The Hood CNN”) with over 170,000 subscribers where he interviewed and promoted up-and-coming Chicago rappers. He also interviewed friends of Kenneka Jenkins, the young woman who was found dead in a hotel freezer.

Zachary Stoner was known for interviewing and promoting a number of up-and-coming Chicago rappers via his “ZackTV” YouTube channel, which boasted over 170,000 subscribers and featured thousands of videos, some with millions of views. He also interviewed Chicago gang members and highlighted the city’s infamous gun violence problem.

Stoner was credited with giving some of Chicago’s most controversial artists their first on-camera exposure, including then-teenage drill music pioneer Chief Keef. He also posted clips showing young men from rival gangs flashing guns and threatening each other.

Stoner described himself on Twitter, where had had over 14K followers, as the “best interviewer in the world” who took his faith in God and his camera to “some of the dangerous hoods in America.”

Eerily, one of his last tweets posted just hours before his murder was a tongue-in-cheek reference to the “death” of rapper Drake as a result of his beef with Pusha T.

ZackTV said in an April interview with the Chicago Defender that he wanted to show an alternative view of Chicago and its residents with his YouTube channel, which was often nicknamed the “Hood CNN.”

“I wanted to show the world the other side of Chicago. Back when I was growing up, we had Common and Kanye West. Those are great brothers and great entertainers, but I didn’t think they represented Chicago the way that I’ve seen Chicago,” Stoner said. “I wanted to show the world what the other side of Chicago looks like … our culture—the way we dress, what we eat, how we talk, how we walk.”

The Defender wrote that Stoner “documents what others neglect and repeatedly interviews personalities who many had hoped would never grace a camera. His videos are not fluffy, glitzy, and sentimental documentary shorts; on the contrary, they are more like visceral punches to the gut that can leave you either inspired for change or disturbed by reality.”

“A lot of people respect what I do. I’m the ‘Hood CNN,’” Stoner told The Defender. “A news station is one-sided. They’ll get your full interview, but they will cut and edit and put whatever they want out. Whatever you say to me will get put out in full no matter if it’s positive or negative. I show both sides.”

Two of ZackTV’s most popular interviews were with friends of Kenneka Jenkins, the young woman was who became the subject of a viral story and public investigation after she was found dead in a freezer at a Chicago hotel.

In one interview, Zack spoke with Jenkins’ friend Irene Roberts, who also went viral on social media in connection with the case after her Facebook Live video showing the hotel party was dissected by internet sleuths in an effort to determine what happened to Jenkins.

Another interview was with two men who were also at the hotel party before Jenkins was found dead. Both interviews were published in November 2017, two months after Kenneka’s death, which was ultimately ruled an accident.

Just three days before Stoner’s murder, Jenkins was remembered on Sunday (May 27) during a tribute at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Rosemont, Illinois where she died. The celebration of life marked what would have been the Chicago teen’s 20th birthday, ABC7 reported.

ZackTV’s most recent interview was posted on Sunday (May 27), featuring Drake of Chiraq discussing the recent shooting death of Chicago rapper Mubu Krump and King Yella being in federal prison.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle return $12 million in wedding gifts

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle are set to return ‘£7 million’ ($12 million) in free gifts they were sent for the royal wedding.

To celebrate the royal couple’s special day, Kensington Palace received gifts from various companies.

But there are strict rules surrounding what the couple can be sent and many companies gave them presents to promote their wares and get their publicity.

Essentially, plenty of people could be looking to exploit the royals and profit from it.

But royal officials are having none of it, with clear guidelines on what free gifts can and can’t be received.

The Express reports one such company is swimwear brand Bags of Love, who sold swimsuits with the royal couple’s faces on them leading up to the royal wedding.

Harry and Meghan requested fans and wellwishers give to charity instead of giving gifts.

It appears that hasn’t always been the case, as the Daily Star estimates that the free gifts Harry and Meghan are sending back are worth £7 million ($12 million)..

The same article suggests William and Kate have returned more than £30 million ($52 million) worth of free gifts, many centred around the births of their three children.

Oh, to be royal.

Teacher, Student Injured; Male Suspect in Custody

Police in Noblesville, Indiana have confirmed that a shooting at Noblesville Middle School has left two people—a teacher and a student—injured. The suspected gunman, a male student at the school, has been detained in connection with the shooting and is believed to have acted alone, police said. The identity and age of the shooter were not immediately released and a motive is unknown at this time.

Authorities said in a press conference that the first call reporting an active shooter situation came it at around 9:06 a.m. and officers responded immediately. One of the victims is an adult teacher and the other is a juvenile student, officials confirmed. Authorities also said that there was a “secondary threat” made at Noblesville High School and they have dispatched officers there as a precaution.

WSBT reporter Todd Connor reported via Twitter, “Police confirm two victims in school shooting at Noblesville West Middle School, a student and teacher. Male student in custody. Police presence at high school after another threat, as a precaution.”

According to CBS4 WTTV-TV, Fox59 evening news anchor Dan Spehler shared with reporters a firsthand account from a seventh grader who was in the Noblesville West Middle School classroom where the shooting occurred.

The seventh grader said a student walked into a science classroom and shot at someone. The science teacher immediately sprung into action by bravely tackling the gunman and swatting the gun away from him, possibly saving others from being injured. The student didn’t say whether or not the hero teacher was injured.

“I literally just spoke with a seventh grader who was in the room where this happened. Her mom came to pick her up this morning. She confirmed what I heard from another person who lives nearby that this was in a science classroom and that a science teacher may have been the one to literally tackle this kid and swat the gun away from him,” Spehler said.

“That is a firsthand account… She described him as a student, and that he shot at someone in the room, and one student was injured. And that this science teacher bravely swatted that gun away from the gunman’s hands, saving everyone else in that room.”

CBS4 WTTV-TV reported that Noblesville Middle was placed on lockdown immediately after the shooting and students were taken to nearby Noblesville High School to be picked up by their parents.

The two shooting victims—a juvenile student and an adult teacher—were taken to area hospitals. IU Health officials said the adult was being treated at Methodist Hospital while the teen was being treated at Riley Riley Hospital for Children. Officials didn’t have any information about the victims’ conditions.

It hasn’t been confirmed whether or not the science teacher who tackled the gunman was the one who was taken to the hospital.

Noblesville West Middle School is located about 27 miles north of Indianapolis.

Watch a live video stream of the scene at the middle school here.

Today’s shooting at Noblesville Middle marks the 23rd school shooting in the U.S. this year. Just one week ago, a 17-year-old student opened fire at Santa Fe High School in Texas, killing 10 and injuring several others.

Roseanne axed: John Goodman reacts to controversy

JOHN Goodman isn’t paying attention to the Roseanne Barr controversy — and he couldn’t care less about ABC’s decision to pull the plug on Roseanne and its Emmy campaign.

“I wasn’t gonna get an Emmy anyway,” Goodman said in a video which was obtained by ET.

“I’ve been up there [11] times already, and if I didn’t get one I’m not gonna get one,” the actor added.

Up until now, Goodman — who served as Barr’s on-screen husband for more than a decade on Rosanne — has remained silent on her controversial tweet about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.

media_cameraThe unprecedented sudden cancellation of Roseanne has left a wave of unemployment and uncertainty in its wake.

“I would rather say nothing than to cause more trouble,” the 65-year-old explained.

Asked about the tweet that his longtime co-star sent out comparing Jarrett to an ape, Goodman claimed that he didn’t pay it — nor the backlash — any mind.

“I don’t know anything about it,” he said. “I don’t read it.”

Describing how he’s been doing now that Rosanne has been cancelled, Goodman said: “Everything’s fine.”

While Barr has apologised for her tweet about Jarrett, she has also repeatedly defended it — calling her words “insensitive, not racist”.

ABC decided to cancel Rosanne and then suspended its “For Your Consideration” Emmy campaign the following day. Judging from the comments of voters, though, the show wasn’t likely to win anyway.

“You can’t put some alt-right scumball on your network and give her a platform,” animation producer Deb Zak told Vanity Fair back in April. “I don’t care if somebody has a conservative viewpoint, that’s fine. She has a hateful viewpoint.”

Drake Has Been Sending Money to Sophie Brussaux Since Adonis’ Birth (Report)

In Pusha T’s scathing Drake diss track “The Story of Adidon,” the former accused the latter of being a “deadbeat dad” (or, in his words, a “deadbeat mothaf**ka”). But a new report from TMZ says those deadbeat allegations couldn’t be further from the truth.

According to sources close to Drake, Sophie Brussaux—the woman Pusha T says Drake has a secret son named Adonis with—lives a pretty comfortable lifestyle, thanks to the money Drake regularly sends to her.

In fact, Drake has not only been financially supporting Sophie since she gave birth to Adonis, but he was also taking care of her before she had the baby.

TMZ’s report continues:

Our sources say Drake plans to take a DNA test to figure out any possible future legalities, but he feels there’s a slight chance the kid is his.

And get this — sources working on Drake’s new album tell us he planned to reveal everything about his new son on his upcoming album — a plan that will obviously need some tweaking.

As we previously reported, in addition to the “deadbeat dad” claims, Pusha T’s diss track against Drake called the Canadian rapper out for being biracial, talked about his absentee father, and even threw a shot at his best friend and longtime producer Noah “40” Shebib, who is currently battling a disease called Multiple sclerosis (also known as “MS”). The artwork for the track featured a photo of Drake in blackface, which Pusha T confirmed was the real deal.

While Drake has since responded to the controversial blackface photo, he has yet to respond to the actual diss track, something the whole world is waiting on at this point.
