‘My friends have lost work’: Former Trump-supporting porn stars abandon the president over career fears

Published

on

Conservative adult film stars claim there have been reprisals against performers who supported Donald Trump during the 2016 election.

“Being a Trump supporter in the adult industry is dangerous,” the Daily Beast reports. “Every porn star who’d once been an outspoken Trump supporter—many of whom I’d spoken with during and immediately following the election—refused to go on the record, fearing possible industry backlash.”

“I haven’t heard a peep from the people who once supported him,” porn director/performer TarantinoXXX told The Beast. “People in the industry are afraid of who might speak out against them; they’re afraid of the backlash. Once you get backlash from prominent people in this business you’re out of a job. You’ll stop getting work and it’ll push you down.”

“This is so intense, my friends have lost work over this,” a brunette perfomer said, after being granted anonymity. “You should know the industry is biased and no one will admit it.”

The Beast reports that A-list star Brandi Love, “made it a point to ignore my repeated requests to talk Trump. Numerous other popular porn stars have followed suit.”

“Being a Trump supporter would not be beneficial in any way for a girl’s career,” says talent agent Mark Spiegler. “This is show business, and if you want to get hired you give them a show.”

President Trump has a complicated history with the adult film industry. Candidate Trump signed an anti-porn pledge and adult film star Jessica Drake alleged Trump kissed her without consent and propositioned her for $10,000 and a ride on Trump’s private jet from Tahoe to Los Angelas.

“To me, most Trump supporters show an incredible lack of character. I’d have a hard time dealing with them on a personal level if they were on set voicing their warped sense of values,” director Brad Armstrong, who works alongside Drake at Wicked Pictures told The Beast. “And when you’re naked on set things have a tendency to get kinda personal.”

President Trump’s campaign of “maximum pressure” on Iran has hit an obstacle: Russia.

While the United States insists that Iran shot down a U.S. surveillance drone in international airspace last week, Russia rejected the charge on Tuesday and supported Iran’s claim that the Global Hawk drone with a 116-foot wingspan was shot down over Iranian territory.

A top Russian official stated Moscow’s intelligence findings at a meeting with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday, according to Haaretz, the Israeli daily.

2020 Election

How the GOP is embracing more ruthless power grabs in the face of huge political challenges

Published

on

On Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule on two cases highlighting the collision between partisan power grabs and setting the ground rules for two of the most important elections in America—those for U.S. House and state legislative chambers.

This article was produced by Voting Booth, a project of the Independent Media Institute.

One ruling concerns whether the Trump administration can add a question to the 2020 census that asks if anyone residing in that address is not a U.S. citizen. The other concerns whether hyper-partisanship is unconstitutional when state legislatures run by a single party draw electoral districts to maximize their party’s likelihood of winning elections.

Hope Hicks may have implicated Jared Kushner in a coverup

Published

on

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks frustrated Democrats last week when she refused to answer multiple questions about her time in the White House.

However, Mother Jones' David Corn and Dan Friedman noticed one bit of Hicks's testimony that shines a negative light on Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner.

When asked about her false statement in December 2016 that there had been no contact between members of the Trump campaign and Russian government officials, Hicks said she consulted several top officials who worked for the campaign before making the statement, including Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon -- and Jared Kushner.
