During a discussion on reports that national sorority organizations are advising University of Virginia sorority members to avoid all fraternity events during “bid week” out of sexual assault concerns, a Fox News contributor suggested that some female students who have been assaulted were “bad girls” who like to be “naughty.”

The University of Virginia has been the subject of investigations for on-campus sexual assaults prior to, and in the wake of a mostly discredited Rolling Stone story that appeared in the music magazine last year.

Appearing on Fox’s Outnumbered, former Clueless actress Stacey Dash shook her head while saying she found the ban “ridiculous,” referring to the college women as “girls,” in video captured by Media Matters of America.

“It’s ridiculous, “she said before reversing direction. “And I think — the girls, I think it’s a good thing for the good girls, okay — women — to be told ‘stay home, be safe.’ The other bad girls — bad women — are the ones who like to be naughty, might go out and play and get hurt, and then, y’know…”

After trailing off, she added, “But the other thing about this, is that it then blames the alcohol and not the person, who over-drinks. So, you know, it’s like the same thing with guns. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Alcohol doesn’t get you drunk, you get yourself drunk.”

Co-host Andrea Tantaros jumped in to say that the people she feels sorry for are the University of Virginia fraternity members, saying, “None of them have been convicted.”

Pro-Trump internet trolls tried to hijack Nickelodeon’s kid’s survey on who should be president — and failed

Published

On Tuesday, Nickelodeon hosted its "Kids Pick The President" straw poll, in which young viewers of the network give their own opinion on who should win the presidential election. The poll has no electoral significance, given that kids cannot vote and given that the survey methodology is not scientific and lets anyone opt in regardless of how it balances the sample.

Despite this, pro-Trump internet trolls reportedly sought to hijack the results, spreading the message to get people to flood the poll with votes for President Donald Trump.

In the end, however, they couldn't even do it. Joe Biden won the poll, 53 percent to 47 percent.

Wisconsin residents saw a “nightmare scenario” situation unfold Tuesday as 5,262 COVID-19 cases rocked the state, resulting in 64 deaths as President Donald Trump held a large campaign rally with few masks and zero social distancing.

"This is no longer a slow-motion disaster," said Gregory Poland, director of the vaccine research group at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. "This is a disaster in warp speed. And it's maddening to me as a physician because a whole lot of people have died and are dying."

President Donald Trump's website appeared to have been briefly hacked on Tuesday -- one week before the 2020 presidential campaign.

Visitors to the site briefly saw a fake DOJ takedown notice.

"This site was seized," the message read. "The world has had enough of the fake-news spreaded (sic) by President Donald J. Trump."

"It is time to allow the world to know the truth," the message continued.

The message also claimed "secret conversations" prove the Trump administration "is involved in the origin of the coronavirus."

There is no evidence that is the case, experts believe the virus originated in China.
