    Will Smith has resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences in wake of his onstage assault of Chris Rock during last Sunday's Oscars show. Smith, in a statement obtained by Variety, called his actions during the ceremony 'shocking, painful and inexcusable,' adding that he would accept any additional consequences the Academy's Board of Governors deemed appropriate. 'The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all those in attendance, and global audiences at home,' Smith said. 'I betrayed the trust of the Academy. I deprived other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work. I am heartbroken.' The actor also acknowledged that slapping Rock during the ceremony caused other award winners to be overshadowed.  'I want to put the focus back on those who deserve attention for their achievements and allow the Academy to get back to the incredible work it does to support creativity and artistry in film,' Smith, 53, said. He also shared how 'change takes time' and...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Thursday was supposed to be debate night in Miami until President Donald Trump’s COVID infection derailed it. Instead, he fielded questions from undecided voters at the Perez Art Museum Miami. Democratic challenger Joe Biden did the same some 1,200 miles away. During the dueling town halls, President Trump was pressed about COVID-19, which has claimed the lives of nearly 16,000 in Florida. He said he doesn’t remember taking a required test before the first debate. “Did you take a test on the day of the debate?” asked Savannah Guthrie, the moderator of the NBC News Town Hall. “If you ask the doctor, they give you a perfect answer. They take a test and I leave and I go about my business,” he said. “Did you take a test on the day of the debate is the bottom line?” Guthrie pressed. “I probably did,” he responded. Sometime later, Guthrie then asked Trump if he would accept a peaceful transfer of power, something he had declined to do in the past. Trump went on to say for the first...

    Tearful Brad Parscale blasts his wife for refusing him sex and claims she's having him committed to a hospital so she can steal his money in explosive new video obtained by DailyMail.com. 'I got f***ing tackled like a f***ing terrorist for wanting my wife's attention,' the former Trump campaign boss sobs while handcuffed in the back of a police car. 'I'm gonna f***ing divorce. I'm applying for divorce as soon as I get out of here. I'm gonna do this thing, whatever, to prove I'm not f***ing crazy.' The astonishing rant was filmed on a female officer's body-worn camera after Parscale was transported to the hospital in the aftermath of his September 27 meltdown. 'She didn't have a bruise on her, I never hit her, I never have,' Parscale, 44, continues to plead in the footage. 'I've never touched her. This is all about money. 'She knows exactly what she is doing. It is the most baller move of all time. It is the most checkmate, f*** you, move of all time. It is un-f***ing-believable. 'I'm gonna throw you in...
    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump said Thursday that he's not sure November's election will be "honest" because of the use of unsolicited ballots, extending his baseless assertion that widespread mail-in voting is rife with fraud and again casting doubt on if he will accept the results of the election."We have to be very careful with the ballots, the ballots, that's a whole big scam," Trump falsely told reporters before departing the White House on Thursday, referring to unsolicited mail-in ballots that only nine states and Washington, DC, provide.The November contest, he said, needs to be "honest," adding that, "I'm not sure that it can be, I don't know that it can be with this whole situation, unsolicited ballots, they're unsolicited, millions being sent to everybody."The President's comments come as he continues to lean into a conspiratorial message around the US voting process and build on his pointed refusal Wednesday to commit to providing a peaceful transition of power after Election Day. "Well, we're going to have to see what happens," Trump said when asked whether he'd commit to a peaceful transition,...
    President Donald Trump will respect the result of the November Election if the Supreme Court rules in favor of Joe Biden, he told Fox News on Thursday. Fox News Host Brian Kilmeade asked Trump to clarify his Wednesday refusal to confirm he would allow a peaceful transfer of power. Kilmeade paraphrased comments from Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham suggesting he would accept the election if the Supreme Court rules that Biden won, going on to ask whether Trump agreed. “Oh, that I would agree with but I think we have a long way before we get there. These ballots are a horror show. They found six ballots in an office yesterday in a garbage can,” he responded. White House Press Secretary also addressed Trump’s earlier comments during a Thursday press briefing, saying Trump would accept the results of a “free and fair election.” She also highlighted Trump’s longstanding complaints against universal mail-in voting, which he has argued will lead to fraud.

    President Donald Trump showed his ineptitude and disregard for democracy on Wednesday during a press briefing when he was asked about the peaceful transfer of power after the election. A reporter asked: “Will you commit to making sure there is a peaceful transferral of power after the election?” “Well, we’re going to have to see what happens,” Trump said. Here’s Trump’s refusal to commit to a peaceful transition of power: pic.twitter.com/UHQW7KdQj4 — The Recount (@therecount) September 23, 2020 Some interpreted that remark as saying that Trump isn’t committed to a peaceful transition of power. But the question itself was slightly odd. A transition of power would only happen if Trump loses the election to Joe Biden, and the result has not yet been determined. So it’s reasonable for the president not to commit to transferring power when he might still legitimately retain it. But that technicality aside, any responsible president would want to reassure a nervous country that of course, should any need to transfer power occur, he will ensure that it happens peacefully. He should state...
    A BLOKE who hates the baby name chosen by his wife says he's scared the tot will face bulling in years to come and end end up resenting her parents because of the unusual choice. His wife settling on George - an name usually reserved for boys - leaving the bloke puzzled as he at first 'assumed she was joking'. 4 A bloke has clashed with his wife, after she told him she wanted to name their baby girl GeorgeCredit: Getty Images - Getty Later, the discussion became heated and the man offended his wife, saying 'only a lunatic' would think George was a good name for a baby girl. His wife refused to compromise with a more traditional female name, like Georgia or Georgina. Writing on Reddit, the man explained: "We both are very normal and average, so at first I didn't believe her and thought she was joking when she said she liked the name George for our daughter. "This came after we'd been discussing traditional girl names for our daughter, so it wasn't even like she'd been...
    White House chief of staff Mark Meadows expressed confidence in the progress being made on a coronavirus vaccine, saying Wednesday he believes one could be ready as soon as this fall. Several vaccine candidates have been going through trials at a rapid pace as part of President Trump's Operation Warp Speed, in which the federal government and private sector companies are teaming up with the goal of putting an end to COVID-19. DROP IN BRAZILIAN CORONAVIRUS CASES PROMPTS HERD IMMUNITY QUESTIONS "I'm optimistic that we'll have a vaccine by the fall," Meadows told Politico Playbook after being asked about a New York Times report that said the government could issue an emergency use memo for a vaccine.

    David Edwards August 19, 2020 7:38PM (UTC) This article originally appeared on AlterNet. White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday refused to say that President Donald Trump will accept the election results if he loses in November. At a White House briefing, McEnany was asked about Trump's recent remarks claiming that the only way he can lose the election is if it is "rigged." : "Does the president believe there is any circumstance under which he could lose the election fairly?" one reporter asked the press secretary. "The president believes that he's done a great job for the American people and he believes that will show in November," McEnany insisted. "He believes that voter fraud is real, in line with what we see all across the country, particularly with mail-in ballots, which are prone to fraud." "Is the president saying that if he doesn't win this election that he will not accept the results?" a second reporter wondered. : "The president has always said he'll see what happens," McEnany admitted, "and make a determination in the aftermath. It's...
            by Andrew Trunsky  President Donald Trump said during a Thursday interview with the New York Post that he intends to accept the Republican presidential nomination on the White House lawn. “I’ll probably be giving my speech at the White House because it is a great place. It’s a place that makes me feel good, it makes the country feel good,” Trump told the Post. “We’d probably do it outside on one of the lawns, we have various lawns, so we could have it outside in terms of the China virus. We could have quite a group of people. It’s very big, a very big lawn,” he added. He confirmed his intention to choose the White House Lawn after previously considering it along with other locations such as Gettysburg, the Post reported. The location has drawn criticism from some in Washington, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who said on MSNBC last Wednesday that Trump’s consideration of the White House lawn was “very wrong.” “Whether it’s legally wrong or ethically out of the question, it shouldn’t have even been something that...
    President Trump said he would likely accept the Republican nomination in a live address from the White House in August. "It's the easiest alternative," Trump said speaking to Fox & Friends on Wednesday. "I'll probably do mine live from the White House." The White House is "the least expensive from the country's standpoint," Trump added. The president also said that the media would be permitted to be in attendance. "We're going to let the press go in and watch it, but you know, socially distanced," Trump said, alluding to restrictions placed on gatherings due to the coronavirus. The Republican National Committee canceled convention events in Jacksonville, Florida, last month after coronavirus cases surged in the state. Some events will take place in Charlotte, North Carolina, where a number of party delegates will meet. News White House Donald Trump GOP Republican Convention

    (CNN)President Donald Trump confirmed Monday night that he will accept the Republican nomination for president in North Carolina after all, capping a reversal prompted by his desire for a fully attended convention that saw him attempt to move the ceremony to Jacksonville, Florida."I'll be in North Carolina, and that's a very big deal because we have a lot of the delegates there and that'll be a nomination process," Trump told CNN affiliate WRAL. "And that's essentially where the nomination, where it's formalized. And I'm really honored to do it in North Carolina." The President said he would reveal more specifics about his speech -- including the location -- probably by the end of this week or early next week.The announcement comes days after Trump announced plans to hold convention activities in Jacksonville, Florida had been scrapped.

    Igor Derysh July 21, 2020 12:33AM (UTC) President Donald Trump suggested that he may not accept the results of the election if he loses, prompting a strongly-worded rebuke from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Fox News anchor Chris Wallace pressed Trump on the possibility of a forthcoming loss in an interview which first aired on Sunday. The current polling average shows Trump trailing by nearly nine points, according to election forecaster FiveThirtyEight. : "I'm not a good loser. I don't like to lose," Trump said. "I don't lose too often. I don't like to lose." Wallace asked if that meant that he would not accept the election results. "No. I have to see," Trump replied. "No, I'm not going to just say 'yes.' I'm not going to say 'no,' and I didn't last time either." : Trump then brought up his debunked conspiracy theories about voting by mail, a process which has an incredibly low rate of fraud and numerous built-in protections, to claim that Democrats may "rig" the election. Pelosi rejected Trump's remarks in an interview with "Morning Joe." "The...
