Charles Barkley on Roy Moore Vote for Him Is Vote for White Separatism

12/11/2017 3:07 PM PST
Breaking News

Charles Barkley doesn't think Roy Moore should even be allowed on the ballot for the open U.S. Senate seat in Alabama due to his close ties to Steve Bannon.

Barkley appeared with Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones Monday in Birmingham on the eve of the election. The NBA Hall of Famer, and Alabama native, got pretty heated just ahead of a rally, calling out Bannon for alleged ties to white separatism.

Barkley says the Bannon factor alone is enough reason to NOT vote for Moore ... never mind the allegations of sexual misconduct with minors.

It's interesting ... Barkley won't vote in Tuesday's special election -- he no longer lives in Alabama -- but still took time to appear with Moore's opponent.

In fact, he admits not knowing a lot about Jones, but seems to say ... he's gotta be better than Moore. 

Bill Clinton How's Hillary, You Say? Check My Digit!

EXCLUSIVE

Bill Clinton was on the move in D.C. Monday morning -- but for as fast as he was going ... he didn't hesitate to give a status update on Hillary.

We got 42 leaving Reagan National Airport, and asked how the missus was doing on her national book tour. He wasn't all that chatty ... but was happy to flash a nonverbal response.

His security detail kept our photog at a distance -- one of the perks of being a former Prez -- but Bubba definitely seemed to be in high spirits here.

Who's got two thumbs (but only uses one) and likes to cheese a lot ... this guy!

Bullied Student Keaton Jones' Mom Gets Backlash Over Confederate Flag

12/11/2017 10:47 AM PST

Photos and words posted by Tennessee student Keaton Jones' mother have many people questioning whether she deserves any of the sympathy generated by Keaton's viral video.

Kimberly Jones' Facebook page reportedly features several photos of herself and friends displaying the Confederate flag. There's also a post in August where she seems to be telling people to stop whining about slavery and racism. It's not clear exactly what she's referring to, but the post was written 2 weeks after the neo-nazi rally in Charlottesville.

One of the photos on her page shows Keaton and a few other kids. Keaton is holding the U.S. flag and another kid is holding the Confederate flag.

The video Kimberly posted of Keaton talking about getting bullied has won over a ton of celebs -- many of whom have invited him and his mom to Hollywood and sporting events.

You gotta wonder ... if Kimberly's posts -- especially the one where she shows zero sympathy for "butt hurt Americans" -- will make celebs and others reconsider their sympathy for her and Keaton.

President Trump Sexual Assault Accusers Demand Investigation by Congress

12/11/2017 7:32 AM PST

Three women accusing President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct are demanding Congress investigate their claims.

Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey and Rachel Cooks held a press conference in L.A. Monday -- detailing their alleged experiences with Trump -- and asked Congress take a closer look into their claims. 

Among the allegations -- Cooks says Trump forcibly kissed her in 2005, and Leeds claims Trump grabbed her breasts and tried putting his hand up her skirt during a flight to NYC more than 3 decades ago.

The news conference comes one day after U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said anyone claiming they're victims of sexual misconduct should be heard.

The White House calls the allegations absurd and false.

Newt Gingrich on Al Franken Innocent Until Proven Guilty ... But Stay Outta Politics!

EXCLUSIVE

Newt Gingrich knows how to sit on a fence -- 'cause he's now defending Al Franken ... while also bashing him for thinking he could go the distance in politics.

We got the former Speaker of the House on Capitol Hill and asked about his recent defense of Franken on TV ... where he said the guy deserved his due process before being forced to resign

Newt breaks it down rather simply -- Americans are innocent until proven guilty, regardless of party ... period.

Still, he couldn't help but leave with a parting shot to the SNL comic-turned-senator ... and any other comedians who think they're cut out for D.C.

Michael Steele on Roy Moore The RNC's Funding a Pedophile ... Thanks to Donald Trump

12/9/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Steele didn't hold back ... he blamed President Trump for forcing the RNC's hand to resume funding to what Steele calls a pedophile's campaign for U.S. Senate.

We got the former RNC chief on Capitol Hill Friday and asked about Roy Moore's on-again, off-again support from the Republican Party following allegations of sexual misconduct with teenagers when Moore was in his 30s.

One woman claims Moore tried forcing her into giving him oral sex when she was 16.

Steele's adamant ... the RNC's reversal is obnoxious as hell and it's sad how far the Republican Party has fallen with Trump at the helm.

Bella Hadid Joins 'Free Palestine' Protest

Bella Hadid is very vocally making it clear she's pissed about President Trump officially recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital city.

The supermodel marched with "Free Palestine" protesters outside the U.S. Embassy in London. They chanted, "Hands off Jerusalem."

It's one of many such protests going on around the world after a Palestinian extremist group called for a "day of rage" in response to Trump's decision. It's unclear exactly how long Bella marched with the group. She'd been partying earlier in the evening at a nearby event. 

Bella's action shouldn't be surprising. Her father, Mohamed Hadid -- who is Palestinian -- told us why he's disappointed by the Jerusalem move.

Roy Moore's Alleged Victim Fires Back with Handwriting Expert

Breaking News

One of Roy Moore's accusers says she has evidence proving the Republican U.S. Senate candidate knew her before he allegedly sexually assaulted her.

Beverly Young Nelson was flanked by her lawyer, Gloria Allred, at a news conference in Atlanta Friday and distributed a report from an expert which concludes the signature in Nelson's yearbook is that of Moore.

As we reported ... Nelson alleges Moore flirted with her when she was a waitress and signed her yearbook. She then alleges Moore offered her a ride home after one of her shifts but instead drove her to the back of the restaurant and attempted to force her to perform oral sex.

Moore has denied Nelson's allegations and went as far as to say he doesn't know her.

Eminem is on the warpath about racism in America in his new track, "Untouchable" -- even dropping a verse about Colin Kaepernick and his national anthem demonstration.

"They call it a Kaepernick tantrum if you don't stand for the national anthem," Shady says in the track that dropped Friday. 

"They gonna say you're tying to take an irrational stance if you try to slander the flag ... but somebody has to be the sacrificial lamb."

There's more ... a lot more ... but it's probably best if you stop reading and just listen.

The guy running against Kim Davis -- who once denied him a marriage license because he's gay -- says he's not gunning for her job out of revenge.

We spoke to David Ermold about his campaign for Rowan County Clerk in Kentucky. As we reported ... he actually had to turn in his candidate paperwork to Davis herself. We asked him what it was like coming face-to-face with her, and while he admits it was tense -- it doesn't sound like it was a battle royal.

Surprisingly, Dave doesn't have 1 mean thing to say about Kim, even though she screwed him. Like he says -- no grudges here, just time for a change in ideas ... and he certainly walks that walk.

If Texas Rep. Al Green's discouraged by his attempt to impeach President Trump getting shut down by the House of Representatives ... he's not showing it.

We got Green on Capitol Hill Thursday and asked about 58 Democrats voting to move ahead on 86'ing Trump from office -- not nearly enough to make it happen -- but he still chalks it up as a win.

Al says he's still got options and gave props to the other 57 "good people" who are on his side ... and makes a solid pitch to recruit more.

As for the singer who shares his name ... Al tells us he's always been a fan and rattles off his 2 favorite songs without hesitation.

Sen. Al Franken I'm Resigning Jabs Trump, Roy Moore On His Way Out

12/7/2017 8:20 AM PST
Breaking News

Senator Al Franken is resigning, but still insists some of the allegations against him are not true, and he thinks the Ethics Committee would agree he's done nothing wrong while in the Senate.

In his speech on the Senate floor, Franken said he wanted to be respectful of the women who accused of him of sexual misconduct, but that doesn't mean he was admitting their claims were true. Then he said he would be stepping down in the coming weeks, but also took a huge parting shot at President Trump and Roy Moore.

Franken said, "I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office, and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party." 

Franken's latest accuser came forward Wednesday -- taking the count to at least 7 -- claiming Franken tried forcibly kissing her in 2006, adding he allegedly said, "It's my right as an entertainer."

Franken denied the latest allegation, but that didn't stop the drumbeat for his resignation. At least 39 Senators called for his exit.

The Franken accusations began with radio host Leeann Tweeden posting a photo showing he groped her and also sexually harassed her during a USO trip in '06.

More accusers came forward, claiming everything from unwanted groping to attempts of forcible kissing. Franken apologized time and again, but that clearly wasn't enough.
