REVEALED: Trump-loving CNN pundit Paris Dennard was once fired for sexual harassment

Published

on

Days after being praised by the president, pro-Trump CNN commentator Paris Dennard’s past firing for sexual harassment at an old job has been revealed.

The Washington Post reported that Dennard was fired from a job at Arizona State University four years ago for making “sexually explicit comments and gestures toward women,” according to documents from the school.

According to the report, ASU’s internal investigation concluded that the Trump surrogate expressed sexual interest in a woman and recent graduate who worked under him.

Dennard, the internal investigation continued, “pretended to unzip his pants in her presence, tried to get her to sit on his lap, and made masturbatory gestures.” He didn’t dispute the claims but said they were done so in jest.

An ASU official confirmed the veracity of the report to the Post.

In email correspondences with the Post, Dennard said he “cannot comment on items I have never seen regarding allegations I still believe to be false.”

He added that the story is “another politically motivated attempt to besmirch my character, and shame me into silence for my support of President Trump and the GOP.”

Why is billionaire Tom Steyer running for president — as an enemy of big corporations?

Published

Tom Steyer, the billionaire hedge fund manager who has become a late arrival in the field of Democratic presidential candidates, provides anti-Trump voters with an interesting challenge. His critique of wealth sometimes sounds like Bernie Sanders, but he is by far the richest person in the race (even if you include Donald Trump).

This article first appeared in Salon.

When I interviewed  Steyer earlier this year, he said he had no interest in running for president and was instead focused on funding a campaign to impeach President Donald Trump. He has obviously changed his mind — and while still far behind the leading candidates in the polls, has now qualified for the October Democratic debates, even though he wasn't on stage for the debate held in Houston last week.

Rand Paul snaps at Liz Cheney over Iran warmongering and announces plans to help her opponent

Published

Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" with host Jake Tapper, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) took several shots at Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) over her desire to attack Iran and her defense of departed White House adviser John Bolton.

Asked about his ongoing feud with the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, Paul said the congresswomen is out of touch when it comes to American's taste for war.

“The Iraq War, President Trump has said, was the biggest geopolitical blunder of the last generation," Paul explained. "It destabilized the Middle East and increased the strength of Iran and tipped the balance toward Iran, so really there was nothing good about the Iraq war and Dick Cheney, Liz Cheney and John Bolton still don’t get it. They are still advocating for more regime change in the Middle East.”
