Topless woman ambushes Czech leader for being ‘Putin’s slut’

Published

on

A bare-breasted woman ambushed pro-Russian Czech President Milos Zeman on Friday as he was about to vote in an election that could win him a second term, calling him “Putin’s slut.”

The woman wearing only blue jeans was swiftly overpowered by the president’s bodyguards, an AFP journalist saw.

Some bodyguards had to help a visibly rattled Zeman, who walks with a cane, leave the room.

The 73-year-old ex-communist later told reporters he felt “honored to be attacked by a member of the Femen movement, that has also attacked the pope”.

Femen, founded in Ukraine, has staged anti-Kremlin protests and is now also focuses on the Catholic Church which it says suppresses women’s rights.

Femen confirmed responsibility for the stunt in a video of the incident posted on its Twitter site.

Czech polling stations opened Friday for a presidential vote that continues Saturday and pits the anti-Muslim, pro-Russian and pro-Chinese incumbent Zeman against more liberal pro-European rivals.

Polls show the divisive Zeman leading the pack of nine candidates ahead of Jiri Drahos, the 68-year-old pro-European former head of the Czech Academy of Sciences.

Although he is in pole position, the outspoken head of state — who uses a cane to walk — is unlikely to win an outright majority and is set to face a run-off vote on January 26-27.

Fauci said he has not seen any pressure from the White House to announce a vaccine close to the Nov. 3 election in the hopes of boosting President Donald Trump's re-election chances.

Trump indicates he cares about money for the first time — saying a GOP convention at the White House is ‘cheaper’

Published

President Donald Trump hasn't cared about how much things cost in the past, but suddenly he decided he cares about the hefty dollars he has cost the American taxpayer with security for his adult children who work for him and for his many vacations.

During his press briefing Wednesday, Trump said that hosting his GOP convention speech at the White House would be less expensive and that if he was supposed to travel somewhere it would ultimately cost taxpayers a lot of money.

Trump: ‘I’m doing the country a big favor’ with my conspiracy theories about voter fraud

Published

on

At Wednesday's White House briefing on coronavirus, President Donald Trump was once again asked about his conspiracy theories about mail-in ballot fraud, in light of his move to sue the state of Nevada to stop an expansion of the practice.

When confronted with his previous lie that Nevada isn't checking signatures, Trump doubled down, saying it would be "physically impossible" to verify the ballots. He then repeated, for the third day in a row, his complaints about the New York primary process — and when a reporter pointed out to him that the delays in ballot reporting isn't evidence of fraud, he replied, "well, you're reading a different newspaper than me." He added that "I'm doing the country a big favor" by talking about these issues.
