Wife of top Trump communications aide attacks ‘skanks’ and CNN’s Erin Burnett

Published

The wife of one of Donald Trump’s top communications aide has rejoined Twitter — and is already attacking “skanks” and palling around with conspiracy theorists.

Mediaite reported Wednesday that Darla Shine, wife of former Fox News executive Bill Shine who was hired as Trump’s deputy chief of staff for communications last summer, has ended her Twitter hiatus in fiery fashion.

Last year, Shine garnered headlines after her husband joined the Trump administration in the wake of his ouster from Fox over his role in sexual harassment scandals due to her history of making racist posts on Twitter.

Her brief hiatus appears to have begun in December when Shine responded to a tweet by Adrienna DiCioccio, a conspiracy theorist and several-times Infowars guest who promoted the theory that the Sandy Hook shooting was a “false flag.”

On December 12, Mediaite reported, DiCioccio called on her followers to take a one-day boycott of social media companies that she called “censorship awareness day.”

“Let’s do it!” Shine responded.

Shine became active again in the new year and on January 15 called CNN host Erin Burnett “pompous” after the anchor said comments that First Lady Melania Trump should make salads are “sexist.”

“Pompous Erin Burnout of CNN too good to make a salad guess she has a chef cooking for her baby and husband so sad she thinks cooking for her family or friends or guests is beneath her,” the White House official’s wife said. “Pathetic.”

Shine also complained over the weekend that she was “put in 24 hour Twitter jail” for calling Trump mistress Stormy Daniels a “skank.”

US moves to end decades-old movie distribution rules

Published

on

The US Justice Department signaled Monday that it plans to end a 71-year-old antitrust enforcement program on movie distribution, saying it is no longer needed to protect consumers.

Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim announced that the Department of Justice would move this week to terminate the Paramount Consent Decrees, which went into force in 1948.

The decrees -- which smaller movie chains and drive-in theaters still champion -- barred major film studios from owning movie theaters, a system that had existed in the early part of the twentieth century and largely blocked independent venues from being able to show hot films.

Trump mocked by Washington Post columnist for bizarre doctor visit: He’s healthy as ‘half a horse’

Published

on

On Monday, Washington Post columnist Alexandra Petri mocked the White House for suggesting President Donald Trump's sudden visit to Walter Reed Hospital over the weekend was part of his routine physical.

"The good news is that everything is completely normal," wrote Petri. "The president is just doing that unremarkable thing we know and love to do, where we have a free afternoon and decide, suddenly, on a whim, to do some but not all of our annual physical, just to get a jump on it. That classic thing, an option we have, and furthermore have always known we had. As he tweeted, 'Also began phase one of my yearly physical. Everything very good (great!). Will complete next year.' Very good (great!)."
