Monica Lewinsky On Matt Drudge “The Original Cyberbully”

Is Monica Lewinsky blaming DrudgeReport‘s Matt Drudge for her dubious place in history?

Lewinsky made some unambiguous comments while telling Daily Mail what she thought of Hillary Clinton’s book, “What Happened?”

“He could have made it right with the book, but he hasn’t. He is a revisionist of history. He has lied. […] I really didn’t expect him to go into detail about our relationship. […] But if he had and he’d done it honestly, I wouldn’t have minded. […] I did, though, at least expect him to correct the false statements he made when he was trying to protect the Presidency.

Jeff Flake Delivers Anti-Trump Speech In Nearly Empty Chamber – Post News Coverage “Soft”

Arizona lawmaker Jeff Flake compared Donald Trump to Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin on Wednesday, delivering a blistering attack on the president to a nearly empty U.S. Senate chamber.

Flake may have hoped for a big bump in name recognition following his sharply critical speech, however, the post news coverage has thus far proved “slight” – at best.

The Republican has become one of Trump’s favorite targets, earning a presidential nickname – ‘Jeff Flakey’ – since his impending retirement has freed him to openly castigate the White House on several fronts.

‘It is a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses words infamously spoken by Josef Stalin to describe his enemies,’ Flake said, citing a Trump tweet in which he branded five news outlets ‘the enemy of the American people.’

Flake said that ‘so fraught with malice was the phrase “enemy of the people” that even Nikita Khrushchev forbade its use, telling the Soviet Communist Party that the phrase had been introduced by Stalin for the purpose of “annihilating such individuals” who disagreed with the supreme leader.’ Continue reading

China BANS New Star Wars Flick After Deeming Actors “Not Pretty Enough”

We’ve been telling you here on TheCount.com that “The Last Jedi” has fallen flat with fans who have actually started a petition to yank the newest installment from the franchise lineup.

And now, the Chinese have completely pulled the film from theaters citing a major issue with casting. “These actors aren’t very beautiful,” says the owner of China’s biggest Star Wars forum, Chen Tao.

Tao, a project manager and longtime Star Wars fan says that one of the reasons the movie failed at the box office is because the actors “aren’t very beautiful.” That’s definitely a new criticism that hasn’t been brought up to Rian Johnson yet. The director might have to explain this one as he has every other decision that he’s made for The Last Jedi.

Tao reveals that the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies do so well in China because they feature well-known locations (sometimes) and because the actors all meet the “public’s aesthetic standards.” However, The Last Jedi’s actors aren’t as pretty as their more beautiful cousins in the MCU, according to Tao. He had this to say. Continue reading
