Anti-porn NY gov candidate emailed ‘awesome’ lesbian video

Published

on

Emailing funny cat videos to your friends is one thing, but sending pornographic videos you think are “awesome” is on a whole different level, a Republican gubernatorial candidate promoted by the tea party movement is finding out.

An upstate New York website announced Wednesday, “Since Carl decided to make an issue of ‘pornographers and perverts’ who are subverting our society and offending his values and Catholic sensibilities, we here at WNYMedia.net thought now would be a great time to revisit the 70-something emails that Carl Paladino sent around to hundreds of his friends, advisors, and associates as well as to leaders in the WNY business community and government officials over the course of several years.”

Gawker notes,

Earlier this year—when Paladino was running against former Senate candidate Rick Lazio for the Republican nomination—Buffalo-based WNYMedia.net published some of the emails he had sent to “a veritable who’s who of Buffalo-area politicians, media types, hangers-on, hacks, and appointees.” And oh, what emails they were, ranging from racist depictions of President Obama, to different racist depictions of President Obama.

But those weren’t the only copies of Paladino correspondence obtained by WNYMedia.net. Besides the horrifying racist emails, there was the explicit porn email—much of which the site published today. And, well: It’s pretty gross. Here’s one, titled “Russian treasure XX open in private” (the “treasure” is a woman, who lactates on a window, not a painted egg, or whatever)

In reference to one that Paladino allegedly sent in October of 2009 under the subject header “2 Chicks Turning up the heat – XXX”, the WNYMedia.net article states,

Here’s another video that Carl Paladino described as “awesome”. Perhaps this is the proof his campaign needed to establish that he is all for gay people being gay. Nevertheless, based on his speeches in Brooklyn, he doesn’t think that these young ladies’ relationship is a “valid and successful option”. But he’s happy to watch.

The New York Daily News adds,

Paladino spokesman Michael Caputo ripped the website but did not deny his boss sent the salacious texts.

Caputo said Paladino apologized for forwarding offensive emails in April, when the first batch became public. He accused the blog of being run by liberal activists who “tried to derail our campaign once before with emails of questionable origin.

“We’ve gotten past this. We’re not going to take the time to confirm these miscreants’ new attempt to revive their dying website.”

Andrew Cuomo threatens to bail on CNN interview when his brother shows vintage photo of governor in bellbottoms

Published

on

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) appeared to feign anger during a CNN interview Wednesday in which his brother, Christopher Cuomo, showed a vintage photo of their family with the elder brother clad in bellbottoms, a rhinestone belt and an unfortunate attempt at an afro.

The younger Cuomo is still suffering from the effects of coronavirus, appearing redfaced and wiping his brow. However, his brother noted that he seemed more animated than he has in days.

"Now I've seen you referred to a little bit recently as the 'Love Gov' and I'm wondering if that's making you a little soft on the president, that you don't want to really criticize him, because you need him and now's not a time for fighting," said the younger Cuomo. "But don't you have to balance that with calling him out if he's doing things that you don't think are great for the people of your state to be hearing and experiencing? Love Gov?"

Fox News hosts are going back to downplaying threat from coronavirus: report

Published

on

Major Fox News personalities like Sean Hannity spent weeks assuring viewers that the novel coronavirus wasn't a serious threat. In recent weeks, however, they have shifted to a different narrative, acknowledging that the virus is dangerous but giving President Donald Trump credit for taking action and criticizing Democrats' lack of action — even though many Democrats, in fact, warned the pubic first.

But according to The Daily Beast, even as there is no clear end to the crisis in sight, and even as the U.S. crosses 13,000 deaths, many Fox News hosts are going back to downplaying the virus, either telling viewers it wasn't as bad as advertised and urging the president to end public safety measures against it.

The dangers of Trump TV: MSNBC host hammers Fox News as ‘genuine public health threat’ amid pandemic

Published

on

Tuesday night, Fox News decided that all anyone needed to do is to pump Americans with a Malaria drug and send them back to work to save President Donald Trump's economy.

Speaking Wednesday night, MSNBC host Chris Hayes bashed the conservative network for downplaying the seriousness of coronavirus, saying that they are "a genuine public health threat."

While Trump has advisers like Dr. Anthony Fauci, he also has the unofficial advisers he sees on Fox News.

They "are coalescing around the idea the whole thing is just overblown and we need to pump everyone full of the malaria drug and get them back to work. This is what you heard if you watch trump tv just last night," Hayes said. He then played clips illustrating exactly that, with hosts ranting and raving about the virus not being as serious as the flu.
