Jill and Jessa Duggar accused of scheduling pregnancies to keep TLC from canceling spinoff show

Published

on

The Duggar family had their fair share of advertising problems after coming out as homophobic and having their brother’s pedophilia and sex addiction splashed all over the news.

Daughters Jill and Jessa Duggar got their own spinoff, “Jill & Jessa: Counting On,” when the first show was canceled due to a child molestation cover-up. Despite being in a rehab facility, Josh Duggar left just in time to help promote his sisters’ new program. A few weeks ago, the show closed out its first season, but not before teasing that the next time the ladies get pregnant they plan to be pregnancy buddies, which is causing many to ask questions.  Christian Daily reports there is new speculation that these pregnancies are being coordinated to keep TLC interested in the show.

“Which of the two of you will have your second child first?” a producer asked, Hollywood Gossip cited.

“It’s hard to say,” Jessa said.

“I think we will probably be pregnant at the same time, but to say who will be first, well Israel is older… so we will see,” Jill answered.

“I’m not pregnant yet, that’s the question everyone keeps asking me. Not yet,” Jill continued. “I feel like we will have another child. I just don’t know how. It will probably be a naturalized citizen of the family.”

Their show was slated to be canceled before they even finished the first season, Hollywood Gossip reports. That makes these new coy comments about a dual pregnancy seem calculating. While ratings have leveled out, advertisers refuse to have their products marketed next to a possible child molester and the family that allegedly covered it up.

Hollywood Gossip thinks the pregnancies plotline is a determined effort to keep the show on the air. TLC still hasn’t renewed the program for its second season, however.  Given their track record with children, that’s probably the moral decision.

#PresidentPelosi Trends After Sondland Testimony Implicates Pence in Trump Ukraine Scheme

Published

on

The hashtag #PresidentPelosi was trending Wednesday as Ambassador Gordon Sondland testified to the House Intelligence Committee in the impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump's Ukrainian schemes for assistance in the 2020 election and implicated Vice President Mike Pence in the effort.

If Trump and Pence are both removed from office over their involvement in the plot, the next in line for the presidency is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

"I'm fine with Pelosi serving as interim president until we hold an election," tweeted activist Bree Newsom. "Both Trump and Pence are implicated in this conspiracy to extort Ukraine."

Trump claims not to ‘know’ Gordon Sondland very well — but the evidence suggests otherwise

Published

on

President Donald Trump attempted to distance himself Wednesday from his hand-selected European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland. At the same time, Trump claimed that Sondland’s stunning testimony, which alleged that the president had ordered a “quid pro quo” with Ukraine, in fact, vindicated him.

“Was there a ‘quid pro quo’?” Sondland said in his testimony to the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday. "The answer is ‘yes.’”

Sondland further claimed that “everyone was in the loop” and all actions were “directed” by the president.

Published

on

It was a day of blockbuster day of testimony from E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland, in which Sondland — who once gave Donald Trump a million dollars for his inauguration — decided to save his own hide by ratting out not just Trump and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, but seemingly half the senior staff of the White House.
