    On Sunday, Reiner tweeted, "On this Mother’s Day let’s honor all mothers and empower all other women with the right to decide if and when they want to become mothers." Laurence Tribe responded to Reiner by tweeting, "Rename it 'Make Motherhood Voluntary Day.'" A leaked Supreme Court draft opinion indicates that the high court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade. The official ruling will come out later this year, and could differ from the draft. "The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives," the draft opinion states.

    Spinal Tap is going to need a bigger amp—one that goes to 12, maybe. The band is getting back together for a sequel to This Is Spinal Tap, Deadline reports, with the entire original troupe set to return for more rockstar antics. That is, if they can find their way to the stage this time around. Spinal Tap II will feature OG stars David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean), Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest), and Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer), with Rob Reiner also set as the film’s director. In the first movie, Reiner also plays a part in the film as the mockumentary creator Marty DiBergi, a role he’ll revise in this sequel. “The plan is to do a sequel that comes out on the 40th anniversary of the original film and I can tell you hardly a day goes by without someone saying, why don’t you do another one?” Reiner told Deadline about his vision for the sequel. “For so many years, we said, ‘nah.’ It wasn’t until we came up with the right idea how to do this. You don’t...
    Actor Rob Reiner said on this week’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show” that if a person votes for any Republicans, they vote for “autocracy.” Reiner said, “First off, all let’s dispense with the idea of Republican a Democrat, or conservative and liberal. We are talking about democracy versus autocracy. We see it happening all over the world. That’s one of the reasons Putin invaded Ukraine. He is wanting to destroy democracy.” He continued, “We have an election right now in France between Macron and Marine Le Pen, and we don’t know the results yet there, but that is also a test as to whether or not democracy or autocracy will survive in the world. So, you have a man, former president of the United States, who led and incited a deadly insurrection to overthrow the United States government. He now is in control of one of the parties in this country.” Reiner added, “He controls every aspect of what he would now call the Republican Party. I don’t know what it is. This is an autocratic movement. So, if...
    Earlier this week, Martin announced that he was wearing two masks on a flight. "I don’t give a damn what some grossly unqualified Donald Trump judge said, I’m double masked and wearing goggles on this Nashville to DC flight. I had COVID in December. Y’all can KISS MY ASS about me not wanting it again. And any fool saying they don’t matter is a damn liar," Martin tweeted on Tuesday. On Thursday he declared: "To all of you nutcase conservatives who have been on my TL for the last three days, I said on Monday y’all can kiss my ass when it comes to wearing a mask when flying. Ain’t nothing changed, even with the #MAGA idiots posting. Y’all mean NOTHING to me. Not. One. Damn. Thing."

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — San Francisco’s redistricting fight brought a crowd to city hall Friday. The new maps are due within days, but the fight over what they look like — and how they’re being drawn up — is only intensifying. “So we have a lot of growth that is mostly on the inside, and that means the west side districts, in order for all the districts to be the same size.” says Sharky Laguana, a San Francisco resident and member of the Small Business Commission. “They are going to have to move to the east. The result, for districts in the middle, like district 5, is there being stretched like taffy.” READ MORE: UPDATE: Highway 92 Reopens in San Mateo County After Fatal Head-On CrashPotential district line changes invariably create tensions.

    CNN medical analyst Jonathan Reiner called Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo “disgraceful,” after the latter recommend against Covid vaccines for children. Ladapo has flirted with controversy since the pandemic began. He called masks a “distraction” in an op-ed he wrote for the Wall Street Journal in 2020. Ladapo has also questioned the efficacy of vaccines. On Tuesday, Ladapo, who was appointed by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) in September, stated he does not believe vaccines for health children are necessary. “The Florida Department of Health is going to be the first state to officially recommend against the COVID-19 vaccines for healthy children,” Ladapo said. “We’re kind of scraping at the bottom of the barrel, particularly with healthy kids, in terms of actually being able to quantify with any accuracy and any confidence the even potential of benefit.” Reiner joined The Lead on Wednesday, where he unleashed on Ladapo while talking with Jake Tapper. “So, Florida’s Department of Health released new guidelines Tuesday that said healthy children in Florida, age five to 17, do not need to get vaccinated,” Tapper said. “That’s obviously not what...
    CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner said Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead” Florida’s surgeon general Joseph Ladapo was “disgraceful” after he announced healthy kids should not get COVID-19 vaccine. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “So Florida’s Department of Health released new guidelines Tuesday that said healthy children in Florida, age 5-17, do not need to get vaccinated. That’s not what the CDC says. What do you make of that?” Reiner said, “Florida has a disgraceful surgeon general. I think what has become abundantly clear is children do get this virus. Most children thankfully will do fine with it, but the CDC says we’ve lost about 1,400 kids to coronavirus, and thousands and thousands of children have been hospitalized. That can almost entirely be prevented by vaccination. Even though there’s some data that suggests children between 5 and 11 have had a bit less of a benefit in terms of preventing infection with this vaccine, the vaccine remains very, very effective preventing those children from serious illness. Every child in this country should be vaccinated for Coronavirus. The surgeon general has...
    (CNN)Here's a look at the life of Grammy and Emmy-winning actor, screenwriter, novelist and director, Carl Reiner.PersonalBirth date: March 20, 1922Death date: June 29, 2020Birth place: The Bronx, New YorkRead MoreBirth name: Carl ReinerFather: Irving Reiner, watchmaker Mother: Bessie (Mathias) ReinerMarriage: Estelle (Lebost) Reiner (December 24, 1943-October 25, 2008, her death)Children: Lucas, Annie and Rob Education: Attended Georgetown University, 1943 Military service: US Army, 1942-1946 Other FactsNominated for 18 Primetime Emmy Awards with 11 wins, including seven awards for his work as writer and creator of "The Dick Van Dyke Show." He was also inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame.Nominated for eight Grammy awards with one win. Growing up during the Great Depression, Reiner developed an interest in writing and performing after taking a government-funded drama class sponsored by the Works Progress Administration (WPA). When Reiner received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in 2000, he said the WPA was instrumental in steering him towards a comedy career and he credited President Franklin D. Roosevelt as one of the people who helped him break into showbiz. Reiner's...
    CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner said Wednesday on “The Lead” that cloth masks were “fashion” and do not protect against COVID-19. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “One of the issues I hear a lot from viewers is the CDC doesn’t seem to distinguish — although they acknowledge on their website that there is a difference — they don’t seem to distinguish the real difference between a cloth mask that your Aunt Sadie made you with Eagles logos on it or whatever and an N95 mask. But there is a big difference. The CDC acknowledges it on the website, but when it comes to mask requirements or mandates, they don’t. I think a lot of people are confused by that because they think if the cloth mask doesn’t really do that much, why are they mandating it?” Reiner said, “I think CDC leadership believes any mask is better than no mask. What I’m here to say — if you want to wear a mask, wear an N95, a KN95 or KF94 mostly from Korea. Those three masks are extraordinarily protective against...
    CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner slammed President Biden's selection of former California Attorney General Xavier Becerra as the Secretary of Health and Human Services over reports that the White House privately believes he doesn't have the necessary experience.  During a Sunday appearance on "CNN Newsroom," Reiner reacted to the report by declaring that Becerra was the wrong choice for the job since first being tapped by Biden to head the department amid the coronavirus pandemic, and that the administration was suffering coordination challenges stemming from the lack of experience within leadership.  US Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra (Photo by Greg Nash / POOL / AFP) (Photo by GREG NASH/POOL/AFP via Getty Images) ___ Jonathan Reiner -  CNN (Photo by GREG NASH/POOL/AFP via Getty Images  |  CNN) BIDEN RETAINS CONFIDENCE IN HHS SECRETARY BECERRA DESPITE REPORTS OF TENSION: PSAKI "The problem is that Secretary Becerra was the wrong choice for the job from the beginning," Reiner told host Jim Acosta.  The remark followed CNN reporter Edward-Isaac Dovere reporting on how Becerra pushed back on criticism of his...
    A 32-year-old Bucks County man is facing criminal charges for apparently shooting his neighbor with a bow and arrow, authorities said. Joseph Reiner, of Levittown, was arrested Wednesday and charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, and possessing instruments of crime, according to the Falls Township Police Department. Reiner on Wednesday had gone to a neighbor's house to pick up some personal items when he got into an argument with the man, police said. Reiner then went back to his own house. Soon after, Reiner's neighbor felt something in his thigh area and saw a bow and arrow protruding, authorities said. Reiner apparently fled the scene but was later nabbed by officers around 7 p.m. The victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment. Reiner was arraigned before a judge and subsequently sent to Bucks County Prison in lieu of 10 percent of $100,000 bail, records show.
    CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner on Sunday condemned journalist and author Bari Weiss for saying she was “done with COVID” after nearly two years. Speaking to anchor Jim Acosta, Reiner said of Weiss’ remarks, “She needs to grow up, because she’s acting like a child.” Weiss had let loose her frustration with the failure to return to normal life in a Friday appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher. “I’m done with COVID. I’m done. I went so hard on COVID,” she told Maher. “I sprayed the Pringles cans I bought at the grocery store. Stripped my clothes off because I thought COVID would be on my clothes. I did it all.” Weiss called it “ridiculous” that the vaccine for the coronavirus hadn’t brought about a complete return to pre-pandemic times. “This is going to be remembered by the younger generation as a catastrophic moral crime,” she added. The journalist said that many of her “liberal and progressive” friends agreed with her but were afraid to say so out of fear that they might be “smeared” as anti-vaxxers, Trump...
    CNN’s John Berman marveled at the wonders of modern medicine while reacting to the news that a man received a heart that came from a pig in a successful transplant. On Tuesday, Berman used part of New Day to focus on the story of David Bennett, a Maryland man with terminal heart disease who underwent an experimental procedure to receive the heart of a genetically modified pig. CNN’s reporting states that Bennett was ineligible for a conventional heart transplant or an artificial heart pump after his medical records showed he was too sick to qualify, but he decided to take a chance on the surgery, and the FDA granted emergency authorization to make it happen. While Bennett’s long-term prognosis isn’t clear, his body’s immune system hasn’t rejected the transplant yet, and the heart appears to be working. As Berman spoke about all of this with Dr. Jonathan Reiner, he hailed it as a miracle of science as he exclaimed “When I read the headline ‘A pig art in a human being,’ I’m like, nothing else matters. This is everything that...
    CNN’s Jim Acosta has slammed Tucker Carlson for peddling Covid-19 misinformation many times before — the latest excoriation was focused on a recent segment touting Viagra as a Covid remedy — and on Sunday issued a challenge to the Fox News host to reveal his vaccination status. After coming back from the commercial break, Acosta introduced his guest, CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner, commenting that it “unfortunately” had “become a tradition for you to come on here and clear up Tucker Carlson’s covid nonsense.” “Here’s his latest, involving Viagra, if you can believe this,” said Acosta, cuing up a clip from Tucker Carlson Tonight on Friday, in which the Fox News host reported on a story about a woman who had reportedly taken a “massive dose of Viagra” and claimed it was responsible for her recovery. “I think it’s pretty obvious,” said Carlson. “Is there anything it doesn’t cure?” “I suppose some people will justify those prescriptions with just about anything,” Acosta quipped, adding that Carlson’s show “really should come with a Surgeon General’s warning for disinformation.” “That show has propagated myth and...
    (CNN)The Omicron variant has sent cases of Covid-19 surging once again, and many businesses, workplaces and schools have reintroduced restrictions to curb the spread. Even for those who have been cautious, the cycle of hope for a return to normalcy followed by the disappointment of rising cases has become exasperating. America calls out sickPart of the problem is the 37.8% of Americans who still are not fully vaccinated against the virus, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.But there is hope on the horizon. CNN spoke to Dr. Jonathan Reiner, professor of medicine and surgery at George Washington University, who talked about what the US can expect next from the pandemic and why we need to continue to work hard to keep the virus in check.This conversation has been lightly edited and condensed for clarity.

    CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner dinged controversial Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo on Monday night after Ladapo made some remarks about Covid-19 testing. In October, Ladapo raised doubt about Covid vaccines, stating, “We don’t know all there is to know.” “We’re going to be working to unwind the, sort of, testing psychology that our federal leadership has managed to – unfortunately – get most of the country in over the last two years,” said Ladapo at a press conference on Monday. “We need to unwind this testing, sort of, planning on living one’s life around testing. Without it, we’re gonna be sort of stuck in the same cycle.” Erin Burnett pointed out Ladapo’s comments reflect many people’s frustration with various Covid protocols. “Does he have a point?” she asked. “And if not, why?” “No,” replied Reiner. “In fact, it’s hard to believe those comments came from the surgeon general of one of the largest states in this country. And his words echo what the former president of the United States Donald Trump said in June of 2020 when he...
    CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner took Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) to task on Tuesday for comments he made on Fox News about the safety and effectiveness of Covid-19 vaccines. “We all hoped and prayed the vaccines would be 100% effective, 100% safe,” said Johnson on Monday’s Fox News Primetime. “But they’re not. We now know that fully vaccinated individuals can catch Covid, they can transmit Covid. So what’s the point?” After playing a clip of Johnson’s appearance, CNN’s Poppy Harlow asked Reiner for his reaction. “I’d say that he’s so misguided that it makes me wonder whether this is all just an act,” Reiner responded. “And if it is an act, what does that say about what he thinks his constituents want to hear?” In his remarks, Johnson omitted the crucial fact that being vaccinated against Covid-19 greatly reduces one’s risk of dying or requiring hospitalization as a result of having the virus. “The only people dying essentially now from this virus are the unvaccinated,” Reiner continued. “And the vast majority of people being hospitalized in this country are...
