    Donald Trump is not happy about the shape of the Republican Senate primary in Pennsylvania. His fame and celebrity thirst led him to endorse TV star Dr. Mehmet Oz, an accomplished surgeon who gave it all up for the easy cash of peddling snake oil. But now it looks like Oz may lose his primary, dealing an embarrassing blow to Trump's fragile ego. Worse, Oz may not even lose to the generic Republican candidate, David McCormick, a walking MAGA-hat whose bland white guy looks can pass as "normal" to low-info swing voters. (I like to call this "pulling a Glenn Youngkin.") No, the surging candidate is Kathy Barnette, a hard-right commentator and crank in the style of Christine O'Donnell or Todd Akin — in other words, weird enough to pull in national attention, but with extreme views that could sink her in a general election race. "Kathy Barnette will never be able to win the General Election against the Radical Left Democrats," Trump ranted in a statement released Thursday. He complained that she "has many things in her...
    Maj. Gen. Tracy Norris in 2018. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s Operation Lone Star has been an unmitigated disaster, and he’s the one solely to blame for that. He’s the one who decided to use vulnerable asylum-seekers as a primary campaign prop. He’s the one who deployed soldiers to the border scheme. He’s the one who’s forced them to live in deplorable conditions when they could have been at home. Ultimately, it all points back to Abbott. (Personal responsibility, as Republicans used to like to say.) But as a leaked survey has revealed continued discontent among deployed soldiers (aside from the widespread external criticisms), the right-wing governor has found a scapegoat. Abbott’s office said on Monday that he was replacing Maj. Gen. Tracy Norris as adjutant general of Texas, which oversees the Texas Military Department. Replacing Norris is Maj. Gen. Thomas Suelze, who Abbott said “will uphold the integrity of the Texas Military Department and exemplify servant leadership throughout every aspect of this position." Too bad Abbott hasn’t bothered to do the same. And while Army Times and The Texas Tribune report that Norris has been “under heavy criticism” for conditions like...
    A new filing by Alec Baldwin's legal team attempts to eliminate any possibility of the actor bearing guilt for the fatal shooting on a film set last year. The arbitration demand, which arrived less than a month after the family of dead cinematographer Halyna Hutchins filed a wrongful death lawsuit alleging that Baldwin and his producers are at fault for Hutchins's death, was filed with an unspecified court. Baldwin's complaint, submitted on Friday, alleges the actor did not play any role in the accidental loading of live rounds into his gun. "At this point, two things are clear: someone is culpable for chambering the live round that led to this horrific tragedy, and it is someone other than Baldwin. Baldwin is an actor," reads the legal filing. "He didn't announce that the gun was 'cold' when it really contained a live round; he didn't load the gun; he didn't check the bullets in the gun; he didn't purchase the bullets; he didn't make the bullets and represent that they were dummies; he wasn't in charge of firearm...
    Sen. Lindsey Graham took aim at President Biden after the president's address to the nation Monday, insisting Biden take more responsibility for the situation in Afghanistan. "President Biden chose a dangerous and dishonorable path in Afghanistan, and he has no one to blame for this debacle but himself," Graham said in a statement on Biden's speech. "With today’s speech, President Biden reinforced the view he still does not understand the War on Terror or how to protect America from the threat of radical Islam," he continued. "The speech was a pathetic attempt to shift blame and an unnerving analysis of the situation he – and he alone – created. Contrary to what he may say or think, President Biden has not ended the war in Afghanistan. He is simply creating a new chapter – one that will be filled by Taliban thugs and al-Qaeda murderers." BIDEN IGNORES QUESTIONS, RESUMES CAMP DAVID RETREAT AFTER ADDRESSING AFGHANISTAN CATASTROPHE Biden spent much of his speech pinning the blame for the deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan on others, most notably the Afghan military and...
    Getty A former NFL agent weighed in on Danielle Hunter's contract dispute with the Vikings. Tension is mounting between the Minnesota Vikings and Pro Bowl defensive end Danielle Hunter over his potential holdout next week. Hunter hadn’t skipped out voluntary OTAs once in his career until this offseason amid the rumors surrounding his unhappiness with his current contract with the team. But if Hunter is absent for mandatory three-day minicamps starting June 15, the Vikings could hit him with a series of fines and escalate his contract dispute with Minnesota. Former NFL agent and CBS Sports analyst Joel Corry weighed in on Hunter’s situation and blasted the 26-year-old, saying there is no one to blame for his unhappiness other than himself. The latest Vikings news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Vikings newsletter here! Join Heavy on Vikings!  ‘Hunter Has No One to Blame But Himself’The crux of Corry’s breakdown of Hunter’s situation comes down to a mistake the then 23-year-old Hunter made by signing a five-year, $72 million contract back in 2018. He had...
    Trevor Noah joked that the coronavirus has “finally struck its least surprising victim yet” on Monday’s The Daily Show, mocking Rudy Giuliani for failing to abide by Covid-19 guidelines. Giuliani has spent the last month traveling around the country to (unsuccessfully) fight for President Donald Trump’s baseless voter fraud claims — often maskless and sometimes even encouraging others to ditch the mask too. “The truth is that Rudy’s only got himself to blame for this,” Noah said. “I mean, this dude was going all over the country refusing to wear a mask. What do you expect? If I go around licking car windshields, I can’t be shocked if I get bird flu. Or if I go around drinking at bars until 3 a.m., I can’t be surprised when I go home with yo mama!” The host then put on his best serious face to discuss the dangers and unpredictability of the coronavirus: “As much as you might have some schadenfreude about this thing, Rudy Giuliani testing positive for COVID-19 is a terrifying new development,” Noah said. “Up until now, we...
    Late-night hosts pounced on the opportunity to make jokes on Monday night after it came to light that Rudy Giuliani had tested positive for the coronavirus.  Giuliani said he is "getting great care and feeling good" Sunday night after President Trump announced that his personal attorney had tested positive for the virus, which has infected more than 14,954,329 Americans. The former New York City mayor has been leading the Trump campaign’s legal battle to overturn the 2020 election results in several states, which various late-night hosts were quick to mock during their shows Monday.  “Rudy Giuliani has tested positive for the coronavirus, although he is suing to have that result overturned,” joked the host of “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah. “But right now, it doesn't look good and the truth is that Rudy has only got himself to blame for this. I mean, this dude was going all over the country refusing to wear a mask. What do you expect? If I go around licking car windshields, I can’t be surprised if I get bird flu.” James Corden made a...
    Trevor Noah kicked off a new week of The Daily Show by informing viewers that COVID-19 has “finally struck its least surprising victim yet.” He was of course talking about Rudy Giuliani, who spent weeks gallivanting around the country pushing his client Donald Trump’s ridiculous voter fraud claims before testing positive for the coronavirus over the weekend. “Although he is suing to have that result overturned.” “The truth is that Rudy’s only got himself to blame for this,” Noah said. “I mean, this dude was going all over the country refusing to wear a mask. What do you expect? If I go around licking car windshields, I can’t be shocked if I get bird flu. Or if I go around drinking at bars until 3 a.m., I can’t be surprised when I go home with yo mama!’” But as much as Daily Show viewers may have “schadenfreude” about this news, Noah called Rudy’s diagnosis a “terrifying new development” in the pandemic. “Because you realize that up until now, we didn’t even think that dead guys could get corona.” Wishing...
    Members of the Trump administration have started turning on one another as their final days in the White House draw to a close.    With only 50 days until Joe Biden takes the oath of office, President Donald Trump's staff is starting to engage in one of Washington D.C.'s favorite past times - the blame game. Under attack first is Stephanie Grisham, one of Melania Trump's closest aides, who was subject to a 'hit piece' in the New York Post Monday with White House 'insiders' blaming her for the first lady missing out on a magazine cover to Meghan Markle.  'Out of nowhere and a complete hit piece,' a senior administration official described it to DailyMail.com. 'I’ve been trying to figure out what logic can be in it and I can’t find it. It’s two months until the end of the administration. I really don’t understand where this is coming from there.' Citing 'insiders who have worked for the White House over the past four years' and 'administration loyalists,' the New York Post claimed the first lady has been 'ill-served' by...
    President-elect Joe Biden is calling on President Trump to step up his administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic, emphasizing how the sitting president was responsible for the country's poor handling of the outbreak. "I am the president-elect, but I will not be president until next year. The crisis does not respect dates on the calendar, it is accelerating right now. Urgent action is needed today, now, by the current administration — starting with an acknowledgment of how serious the current situation is," he said. Biden, the two-term vice president, urged Trump to direct resources, such as protective gear, to front-line healthcare workers, as well as help hospitals set-up their surge capacity facilities. He also implored the incumbent to distribute testing kits, treatments, and therapeutics more widely. Biden's comments reflected advice he received from his coronavirus task force Friday as COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths tick up around the country. "This week's news on progress toward a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is positive, but it will be many months before there is widespread vaccination in this country," he warned....
    MIKEL ARTETA last night admitted that he failed in his responsibility to get the best out of Mesut Ozil but insisted his conscience is clear. The Arsenal boss was responding after Ozil had declared war on the club by accusing them of disloyalty. 4Mesut Ozilclaims his 'loyalty' to Arsenal has not been returned but boss Mikel Arteta says he has been left out purely due to performance levelsCredit: Getty Images - Getty 4Gunners' manager Mikel Arteta says he gave Mesut Ozil a fair chance to prove himself before omitting the midfielder from his current Prem squadCredit: Getty Images - Getty Ozil lashed out on social media after being omitted from Arsenal’s Premier League squad this week. But Arteta insisted that Ozil had no-one to blame but himself for the decision which means he has almost certainly played his last game for the club. He said: “What is happening with Mesut now is nothing new. "The atmosphere around him when I joined was pretty difficult and a lot of these things have been going on for eight years. “My job...
    Screenshot via Twitter. Jaime Harrison, the former South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman who is challenging incumbent Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), brought his own plexiglass barrier to Saturday’s debate to separate him from his Republican opponent. Graham found himself on the growing list of government officials exposed to the coronavirus through his interactions with Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee with Graham and recently tested positive for Covid-19. Both Lee and Graham were in close proximity with each other as Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett attended meetings and events on Capitol Hill this past week. Graham tweeted on Friday that he had been tested and was negative, and felt “fine.” The Harrison campaign has nonetheless criticized him for refusing to quarantine. Studies have shown it can take some time between exposure to Covid-19 and a test result coming back positive. Harrison addressed his plexiglass in response to a question from the debate moderator about the politicization of the pandemic response. Graham noted that people had not blamed former President Woodrow Wilson for contracting the...
    (CNN)In normal presidential elections, the labors of campaign strategists don't change much. Underlying conditions in the country drive the outcome.In the re-election race of President Donald Trump -- who rivets enough national attention to blot out the sun -- they matter even less. That marketer's talent, now a crippling 2020 weakness, renders last week's sacking of campaign manager Brad Parscale a minor development. "Trump is the message, Trump is the strategist, Trump is the campaign manager," observes Kevin Madden, a longtime aide to Republican politicians from George W. Bush to John Boehner to Mitt Romney. Against that reality, the plans of new campaign manager Bill Stepien represent mostly "a bunch of noise." Brad Parscale speaks on the phone ahead a campaign rally inside of the Knapp Center arena at Drake University on January 30, 2020 in Des Moines, Iowa. Rather than signaling a turnaround, the move underscores how badly Trump has already damaged his own prospects. Two new national polls in recent days showed the President with a double-digit deficit against Democratic opponent Joe Biden. Trump, not Parscale, dug that...
    On Wednesday night, Donald Trump dumped Brad Parscale, the sleazy grifter who has been running his campaign since Trump first filed for re-election, right after his inauguration. Officially, Trump has demoted Parscale rather than firing him, replacing him as campaign manager with former White House political director Bill Stepien. But that language fails to capture the extent of the public humiliation for Parscale, a braggart who spends almost as much time hyping himself as he does hyping the candidate. Parscale, true to Trumpian form, pursued a trolling-all-the-time campaign strategy that was designed to distract Trump voters from their candidate’s extensive incompetence and corruption and keep them focused on the goal of “triggering the liberals.” He focused largely on stunts meant to tickle right-wingers’ victim complex and preoccupy them with grievances, such as by selling plastic straws as campaign merchandise (meant to trigger tears among liberals who don’t want to kill sea turtles) and spreading fake videos that portray mainstream journalists as flinging around false accusations of racism. But Parscale’s been on the outs with Trump, especially since the disastrous campaign kickoff rally in Tulsa last month that was clearly meant to be the pièce de résistance of racist trolling, scheduled to...
    A major newspaper in the United Kingdom has published some harsh words for Prince Harry, writing that the redheaded prince “only has himself to blame” amidst persistent rumors of his unhappiness while living in Los Angeles. The stinging rebuke was published in The Telegraph, which is not only one of the few British media companies that is not being sued by the Duke and Duchess and Sussex, but also generally seen as a pro-monarchy paper. However, The Telegraph has slowly joined other British media companies in the chorus of negative press for the couple. “Do you hear that sound? That wincingly high-pitched lament drifting across the Atlantic all the way from LA? It’s the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, sitting on the terrace of their Beverly Hills mansion, playing the world’s smallest violins,” began the article, written by Celia Walden. The piece comes after numerous reports have suggested that Prince Harry has found the transition to leaving the royal family difficult, as was previously covered by The Inquisitr. However, Walden claimed that any misery has been the couple’s own making,...
    This is the girlfriend of Benjamin Keough who pleaded with him not to shoot himself, later telling police she feared his mother Lisa Marie Presley and the rest of his family would 'blame her' for his death, DailyMail.com can reveal. Diana Pinto was heard screaming 'Don't do it' to Keough in the moments leading up to the 27-year-old shooting himself in the chest at Presley's $1.8 million luxury Calabasas, California mansion.   Neighbors said people were partying at the home at 1am and heard screams around 3.30am. They noted police showed up to the home hours later around 6am.   Pinto was interviewed by police, with the neighbor explaining: 'She was pretty hysterical saying ''I can't believe it.'' She just kept swearing and saying, ''I can't believe it... I can't believe he would do that to himself.'' 'She said, ''the family's going to hate me'' and ''they're going to blame me.'' I think she was feeling guilty for it happening.'  This is the girlfriend of Benjamin Keough, who pleaded with him not to shoot himself, later telling police she feared his mother Lisa...
