New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) joked that his brother Chris Cuomo, who hosts CNN’s “New Day,” has “certain development issues” during a speech at the New York State Democratic convention on Thursday.
“This morning I did CNN. I have a brother. He’s not a natural brother, he’s adopted. But we treat him like he’s a natural brother,” Andrew Cuomo joked. “It’s actually a funny story: he was found at our front door in a basket, and he was 16 years-old. So, he has certain development issues.”
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told Attorney General Maura Healey (D-MA) that she would like to be CEO of Facebook, while receiving the Radcliffe Award at Harvard on Friday.
“If you could be a CEO of any company right now, what would you choose?” Healey asked.
“Facebook,” Clinton quickly answered.
The former secretary of state explained that Facebook “is the biggest news platform in the world.”
“Most people in our country get their news, true or not, from Facebook,” she said. “It really is critical to our democracy that people get accurate information on which to make decisions.”
Apparently Clinton would like to be the one deciding the “accurate information” that Americans see.
Harvey Weinstein was all smiles as he was charged with multiple counts of rape in a New York courtroom on Friday.
The 66-year-old disgraced movie mogul was arrested, processed and booked for the alleged sexual assault of two women shortly after 7:30am, arriving alone in a chauffeured SUV before being taken in to the station by two members of the special victims unit - Detective Nicholas DiGuadio and Sergeant Keri Thompson.
He then headed off with his hands cuffed - in three linked handcuffs on account of his girth - to criminal court, where he was paraded around in front of spectators and looked to be in a daze, exclaiming at one point: 'Wow.'
Weinstein's attorney Benjamin Brafman met him in court, holding his client's passport for all to see before surrendering it to the judge as part of his bail.
He also handed over a cashier's check to cover the $1 million cash bond before leaving the court, with Weinstein heading off alone to be fitted for his electronic monitoring bracelet.
Weinstein was ordered to remain in New York or Connecticut as he prepares to face trial, and Brafman said outside court that Weinstein will enter a plea of not guilty.
Brafman then spoke outside court, and offered up an unexpected defense for his client.
'My job is not to defend behavior. My job is to defend something that is criminal behavior,' stated Brafma.
'Mr. Weinstein did not invent the casting couch in Hollywood. To the extent that there’s bad behavior in that industry, that is not what this is about. Bad behavior is not on trial in this case.'
A top Senate Republican is challenging the Justice Department over extensive redactions made in files showing text messages between anti-Trump FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, drew particular attention to one text that suggested the Obama “White House is running this,” in reference to an unspecified investigation.
But, like in so many of the files, a name was redacted and the context was unclear, though one report suggests that was related to the Russia probe.
In a letter sent Wednesday to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Grassley called for all redactions to be removed.
“The manner in which some redactions have been used casts doubt on whether the remaining redactions are necessary and defensible,” Grassley wrote.
A TMZ reporter confronted Green and asked him about saying Democrats would impeach Trump if Democrats take control of the House of Representatives.
Green clarified that “what I actually said is there’s a likelihood that there would be impeachment articles filed.”
“And this president has committed impeachable offenses,” Green continued. “I take great offense at the notion that he can have perfidy perpetrated, that he can engage in invidious discrimination, and I think we ought to be on the record showing that we disapprove of it.”
When the reporter asked Green if such an effort would be a gift to Republicans, Green seemed unconcerned about the impact on lawmakers across the aisle.
“It’s not about Republicans, it’s about the republic and whether or not we’re going to maintain a republic or we’re going to have a president who disregards most of the rules and who seems to think he’s above the law,” Green said. “He’s not. Nobody is above the law, not even the president.”
Green argued it’s unnecessary to hold off on impeachment until after special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation concludes because he’s basing cause on Trump’s “perfidy” and “insidious behavior.”
“All of this bigotry that he’s enshrined in policy is what this is all about. If he makes another racial slur, he knows I’m waiting for him,” he said.
“Internal docs” posted by Baltimore-based investigative reporter Jayne Miller show that Dawnta Harris, the 16-year-old teen accused of running over and killing a Baltimore police officer was supposed to be on house arrest at the time. Even worse, these documents show that Harris was in violation of the house arrest and should have been put in jail: -- Jayne Miller @jemillerwbal: “Internal docs show despite repeated house arrest violations 2 wks ago, state Dept Juvenile Services did not recommend Dawnta Harris be detained… instead favored continued house arrest. Harris accused of killing Baltimore County police officer Monday…while still AWOL”
According to media reports, Harris, who has a long criminal history, admitted to running over Baltimore County Police Officer Amy Caprio with a Jeep: The three other suspects have been arrested in the burglary that led to the death of Baltimore County Police Officer Amy Capri. Mugshot released of 16-year-old Dawnta Harris, who admitted to running over Baltimore County Police Officer Amy Caprio with a Jeep, per charging documents. Harris’ mother said in a press conference that she wanted her son in jail, but that his defense attorney was able to secure him house arrest (we’re going to need Snopes or PolitiFact to weigh in on this one): At May 10th hearing, mother of Dawnta Harris says she wanted her son detained due to repeated car thefts. She says City Prosecutor also asked for detention but public defender asked for him to be released. Court, she says, agreed to send him home on house arrest.
She went on to blame the Department of Juvenile Services for not arresting him: "This is my son…" Mother of Dawnta Harris says Dept Juvenile Services "failed her son"… "if they had kept him, we wouldn't be here." Harris accuses of murder in death of Baltimore County police officer. -- In a curse-filled Facebook post last night, Baltimore defense attorney Warren Brown said he’d take the case pro-bono: Def Atty Warren Brown says he is putting together legal team for 16 yr old Dawnta Harris, charged with murder in death of Off Amy Caprio. Brown's message on FB last evening: -- Harris’ other attorney in the case, J. Wyndal Gordon, blamed the deceased officer for scaring the car theft suspect and no alleged murderer with her gun: "This wasn't intentional, it was an accident" Atty J Wyndal Gordon says Dawnta Harris had no motive to kill police officer… questions why Off Amy Caprio pulled her gun… body camera footage he says will answer questions.
Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP chapter leader who resigned after her parents revealed she’s not African-American, is facing a felony theft charge in Washington state after she allegedly made false statements to secure nearly $9,000 in food and childcare assistance.
The charges against Dolezal, who changed her name to Nkechi Diallo in October 2016, were first reported by KHQ-TV.
According to court documents, investigators with Washington state’s Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) started looking into Dolezal’s finances in March 2017 after the publication of her autobiography, “In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World.”
DSHS investigator Kyle Bunge said Dolezal had claimed that “her only source of income was $300.00 per month in gifts from friends.” However, the department found that she had deposited nearly $84,000 in her bank account between August 2015 and September 2017 without reporting it.
According to the investigation, the money came from sales of Dolezal’s autobiography as well as “the sale of her art, soaps, and handmade dolls.”
Authorities say Dolezal illegally received $8,747 in food assistance and $100 in child care assistance from August 2015 through November 2017.
Former Vice President Joe Biden blasted Republicans in a speech Thursday for “fake nationalism,” among other things.
“This is not your father’s Republican Party,” Biden said at the New York State Democratic Convention.
“This is a different deal. They are not — they are not who we are. They are not who America is. But what they are doing is they’re sending a vision of America around the world that is distorted. That is damaging. That is hurting us with this phony populism, and this fake nationalism.” Biden has openly stated that he’s considering a presidential run in 2020.
Starbucks announced a new policy Saturday that allows anyone to occupy the coffee shop or use the store’s facilities, even if they don’t buy anything, but many are left to wonder if it’ll have a negative impact.
The “Third Place Policy” maintains that employees should consider anyone who enters Starbucks space, including restrooms, cafes and patios, a customer “regardless of whether they make a purchase,” the company said in a statement.
“We are committed to creating a culture of warmth and belonging where everyone is welcome,” Starbucks said.
Customers using the space must still follow a set of general guidelines, which requires them to use spaces as intended, be considerate of others, communicate with respect, and act responsibly, or they might be asked to leave.
Following President Trump’s decision to cancel a highly anticipated summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, an official from the rogue nation said they remain open to talks with the U.S.
“We express our willingness to sit down face-to-face with the U.S. and resolve issues anytime and in any format,” North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan said on Friday, according to the outlet, citing the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
Trump’s move to call off the June 12 talks in Singapore highlights the tension between the two countries and further emphasizes the need to a meeting, the official reportedly explained. He added that Kim has been prepping for the summit.
“Despite all of this, the U.S.’ unilateral decision to scrap the talks causes us to reconsider whether all of the efforts and the path we have taken is really the right one or not,” the official said, according to Yonhap. “Our commitment to doing our best for the sake of peace and stability for the world and the Korean Peninsula remains unchanged, and we are open-minded in giving time and opportunity to the U.S.,” he said.
Word from the hermit kingdom came hours after Trump penned a letter to the dictator saying that talks right now would be “inappropriate” considering “the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed” in recent comments from North Korea. –Fox News
Meghan McCain was the only panelist on “The View” Thursday to say she supports the new NFL policy that requires players to stand for the national anthem.
The NFL will allow players to stay in the locker room if they do not want to stand for the “Star-Spangled Banner.”
“I completely disagree with everyone on this table,” McCain said. “I would never be OK with somebody not saluting the flag. Seventy-two percent of Americans, according to Reuters, said that they thought [Colin] Kaepernick’s behavior was unpatriotic, unpatriotic.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin interrupted her, but McCain pushed through: “Can I please finish what I’m saying? I’m still talking. I’m still talking. I’m still speaking.'”

Europe’s new privacy law took effect Friday, causing major U.S. news websites to suspend access across the region as data-protection regulators prepare to brandish their new enforcement powers.
Tronc Inc., TRNC -0.16% publisher of the Los Angeles Times, New York Daily News and other U.S. newspapers, was among those that blocked readers in the European Union from accessing sites, as they scrambled to comply with the sweeping regulation.
“We are engaged on the issue and committed to looking at options that support our full range of digital offerings to the EU market,” the company said in notices it displayed when users attempted to access its news sites from the EU on Friday morning.
Others U.S. regional newspapers owned by Lee Enterprises Inc., LEE +2.04% as well as bookmarking app Instapaper, owned by Pinterest. Inc., were also blocking access in the EU.

Morgan Freeman apologized Thursday for sexual misconduct with multiple women. However, certain instances in which Freeman displayed creepy, unsettling behavior with women have been caught on tape and were released Thursday.
A producer for WGN in Chicago named Tyra Martin had an extremely uncomfortable experience with Freeman. She had interviewed him many times and alleged that he constantly made comments that were sexually charged.
One encounter with Freeman left her feeling uneasy after Freeman had allegedly asked her not to pull her skirt down as she was getting up from the interview, but it remains unclear whether this encounter was recorded on-camera.
There was, however, an instance between Martin and Freeman that was caught on tape. Martin asks Freeman if he is enjoying the life of a bachelor, to which he responds, “I’m enjoying bachelor life immensely, because I get to look at you and drool.”
Another instance was caught on-camera in which Freeman was staring at the HLN guest Chloe Melas’ leg area and said bluntly, “Boy do I wish I was there,” while in the middle of a discussion about pregnancy. She was six months pregnant at the time.
At least eight women accused Freeman of sexual misconduct.

A Marietta police officer is being hailed as a hero, after performing life-saving measures for three minutes to help a choking two-month-old baby breathe again. "It was a joyous experience, I'll tell you that," Officer Nick St. Onge said about the ordeal, as he applied chest compressions and back blows for several minutes to dislodge what was blocking little Zeona's airway. On the evening of May 15, the baby's grandmother called 911 after the baby started choking and turning blue while feeding on a bottle. Officer Nick St. Onge arrived at the scene quickly before paramedics. "I had a panic attack... [saying]'Come on Zeona, come back to life... breathe baby,'" said Zeona's mother, Cianna Stovall, who tells us how she cried watching her baby in distress.
"It was three minutes of sheer terror," Officer St. Onge said, as he continued to apply compressions while the baby was not responsive for some time. "I heard that first half-cry and I was like, Thank God," St. Onge said. Stovall tells us how she was overjoyed and thanked the officer at the scene. "Thank God... thank you, my baby is okay," she told FOX 5 News. Officer St. Onge said he credits his years of military training and training with Marietta Police to know exactly what to do in this crisis to revive a baby. "I'm happy to be one of those officers in the right place at the right time," he said. Little Zeona was taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital. She was released from the hospital and doing just fine, according to her mother.
