Rosie O’Donnell Says You Can’t Compare a Predator President Trump to Weinstein

Rosie O’Donnell is calling out the hosts of NBC’s Morning Joe for making a “false equivalence” between President Donald Trump and disgraced film executive Harvey Weinstein—one of which she feels is much worse than the other.

On Wednesday morning the 55-year-old comedian tweeted: “hey morning joe – TRUMP is the president – harvey weinstein never was – both are gross sexual predators but its a false equivalence #tvHOSTS.” Her tweet is in response to a comment made by Donny Deutsch, who is not a host but a regular guest on Morning Joe, on Friday.

“Like our president, everything is about [Weinstein]. There are a lot of parallels—I’m not calling our president a sexual predator—but there are a lot of parallels in the psyche of these two guys,” said Deutsch, the former host of the CNBC talk show The Big Idea With Donny Deutsch.

Meanwhile, Let’s Not Forget That the President of the United States Is Also an Alleged Sexual Predator

“Why now?” a friend asked me over dinner this week amid our umpteenth conversation about Harvey Weinstein and the flood of sexual assault and sexual harassment allegations that have emerged about him. Why, after decades of guarding what had become an open secret, had women finally felt more willing to go on the record with journalists and share their stories publicly—even in the face of threats of legal action to the paper by Weinstein, and risk to their own careers, that had been there all along?

I don’t know the answer for sure, but I told her that I think—and I certainly hope—it’s because something in our culture has shifted. With the

President Trump on Witness List in Case Involving Pedophile …

President Donald Trump is on the witness list for a civil trial, involving a Florida attorney, who represents convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein‘s alleged victims, and the disgraced billionaire himself.

“President Donald Trump has been identified as an individual who may have information relating to these allegations,” attorney Jack Scarola told LawNewz.com in an interview. Scarola is representing attorney Bradley Edwards, a party in the case.

Scarola told LawNewz.com that they have evidence that at least one of the now (former) employees at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club were recruited by Epstein’s agent to become involved in a pattern of alleged molestations.

The civil trial, which is expected to begin soon, is a complicated one and dates back to 2009.  It involves allegations of malicious prosecution, and defamation filed by Florida attorney Bradley Edwards. Edwards also represents several of Epstein’s alleged victims who brought separate civil cases against Epstein.  But, what is particularly interesting about this latest case is that it now

Philippines Angry After CBS Show Paints President as a Sexual Predator

A fictional portrayal of the president of the Philippines in a hit U.S .television series has earned criticisms from the real-life administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.

The trailer for the upcoming episode of the CBS political drama “Madam Secretary” was recently released and no less than the Philippine Embassy in Washington, DC express dismay over the 20-second preview, Reuters reports. 

In the clip released earlier this week, Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord, the lead character played by Téa Leoni, receives sexual advances from the Philippines’ “unconventional new president” named Datu Andrada. The reaction of Leoni’s character was a powerful punch in the face that made the fictional president’s nose bleed.

According to its Facebook page, the Philippine Embassy said it wrote a letter

President Kiir reverses orders to shoot rapist soldiers | Radio Tamazuj

South Sudan President Salva Kiir ordered that soldiers who rape civilians should not be publicly executed before being taken to court, a spokesman for the presidency said.

The statement directly contradicts Kiir’s previous statement during a religious occasion in the town of Yei that soldiers who rape civilians be shot in the head and in public.

Speaking to Radio Tamazuj on Sunday, Ateny Wek Ateny, South Sudan’s presidential spokesman, said members of the security forces who were convicted of rape would be taken to court for trial, saying the perpetrators would not be executed publicly.

Ateny claimed that President Kiir was referring to history of the SPLA army. “For now, the President said we cannot kill anyone before we take him to

Man Boasts Of Sexual Assault, Later Inaugurated 45th President Of …

Eighteen years ago, while I was taking the number 9 subway train home from Midtown Manhattan to 121st and Amsterdam, a man “grabbed my pussy.” That is, while I was locked into the rush hour crowd, unable to move and with my arms around a large box I was carrying, a man reached under that box to stick his hand through my sundress into my vagina to fondle it. I tried to wiggle away, but I couldn’t actually get away until the next stop, when I darted for the doors as soon as I could and then sat down to cry with the shame washing over me. I was “lucky”—though it’s telling that I use that word—because I haven’t been raped. But I have been violated, intimately touched without consent, that time and others.

I never imagined that nearly two decades later, that subway experience would be the part of my history that

President Sexual Predator plans big cuts to violence against women programs

Donald Trump’s transition team is ready to move fast on slashing government programs from climate change to nuclear physics to the National Endowment for the Humanities, but one part is extra special—and extra appropriate:

At the Department of Justice, the blueprint calls for eliminating the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, Violence Against Women Grants and the Legal Services Corporation and for reducing funding for its Civil Rights and its Environment and Natural Resources divisions. [Emphasis added]

There’s a lot to be appalled at right there in that one sentence, but let’s take a minute to consider that the man who dismissed a recording of himself talking about sexually assaulting women as just locker room talk is now planning to preside over the gutting of programs to prevent sexual assault and aid victims of sexual assault.

This is one serious, policy-level commitment to locker room talk. Either that, or
