Alec Baldwin, it appears, can’t catch a break. Baldwin and his influencer wife, Hilaria Baldwin, had just settled into the revelry of a mostly positive news cycle, celebrating last week’s birth of their latest baby, their seventh, a 6-pound, 13-ounce daughter named Ilaria Caterina. But on Monday, the couple were hit with the alarming news that the actor could be criminally charged in the fatal 2021 shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his Western film, “Rust.” Despite Baldwin’s insistence that Hutchins’ death was an accident and that he wasn’t responsible, as well as his b...

Donald Trump significantly harmed his position in his 2024 positioning against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis by dining with Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes and the rapper formerly known as Kanye West at Mar-a-Lago, a longtime advisor admitted on Friday.
On Friday, NBC News reported, "despite Trump’s suggestion the event was “uneventful,” the fallout over his dinner with Fuentes appears to have thrown Trump’s campaign into damage control mode. The former president took hours to respond publicly after multiple media outlets reported that Fuentes was present at the dinner. Even the two Trump advisers winced at how a Holocaust denier like Fuentes was able to wind up with Trump at dinner — even if it was by mistake — along with the rapper, who had just had his Twitter account restored but lost major endorsement deals for making anti-Semitic remarks."
The rapper said Trump was "really impressed" with Fuentes.
"I like this guy, he gets me," Trump also reportedly said.
One longtime Trump adviser described it as a "f*cking nightmare."
"If people are looking at DeSantis to run against Trump, here's another reason why," the advisor explained.
Another potential 2024 GOP hopeful, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said on Friday the Fuentes scandal was disqualifying.

A prison inmate who was on a cleanup crew on an Oregon highway stumbled upon a "suspicious object" which turned out to be a human skull in a backpack, CBS News reports.
The skull was found in Marion County, about 75 miles south of Portland.
The Oregon State Medical Examiner's office is trying to identify the skull, which they say belongs to a female in her late 30s to 40s.
"This is not the first time a human skull has been discovered alongside an Oregon highway. According to the Oregonian, a highway crew found another in June 2018 while conducting maintenance along Interstate 5 in Roseburg. No other remains were found," CBS News' report stated.
"It took more than a year for the deceased person to be identified, but in December 2019, authorities said that DNA testing had shown the skull was the remains of Scott Evenson," the network reported. "He was an Oregon man who had been listed as a missing person on Facebook in 2016, but whose disappearance was never reported to the police, the outlet said."
The skull was found near I-5, Fox 12 reported.

Former Gov. Chris Christie blasted Donald Trump's 2024 comeback attempt after his latest racist scandal.
"Former President Donald J. Trump on Tuesday night had dinner with Nick Fuentes, an outspoken antisemite and racist who is one of the country’s most prominent young white supremacists, at Mr. Trump’s private club in Florida, advisers to Mr. Trump conceded on Friday," The New York Times reported Friday. "Also at the dinner was the performer Kanye West, who has also been condemned for making antisemitic statements."
West, who legally changed his name to Ye, said Trump was "really impressed" with Fuentes.
"I like this guy, he gets me," Trump reportedly said.
"In recent years, Mr. Fuentes, 24, has developed a high profile on the far right and forged ties with such Republican lawmakers as Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona, largely through his leadership of an annual white-supremacist event called the America First Political Action Conference," The Times reported. "A Holocaust denier and unabashed racist, Mr. Fuentes openly uses hateful language on his podcast, in recent weeks calling for the military to be sent into Black neighborhoods and demanding that Jews leave the country."
Christie, who may himself seek the GOP nomination again, said the scandal was disqualifying.
“This is just another example of an awful lack of judgment from Donald Trump, which, combined with his past poor judgments, make him an untenable general election candidate for the Republican Party in 2024,” Christie told the newspaper.
The former GOP governor speculated on what was motivating Trump.
“He can’t stand not having attention all the time,” Christie said. “And so, having someone show up at his club — even if you believe that he didn’t know who Nick Fuentes was — and want to sit with him, feeds the hunger he feels for the attention he’s missing since he left the presidency.”
According to the Anti-Defamation League, "Nicholas Fuentes is a white supremacist leader and organizer and podcaster who seeks to forge a white nationalist alternative to the mainstream GOP. Nicholas Fuentes first gained widespread notoriety in 2017 when he left Boston University after he reported receiving 'threats' tied to his attendance at the white supremacist 'Unite the Right' rally in Charlottesville, Virginia."
And the Southern Poverty Law Center reported, "Nick Fuentes is a white nationalist livestreamer who advocates pulling the Republican Party further to the extreme far-right end of the political spectrum. An outspoken admirer of fascists such as Mussolini, Fuentes emerged as an influential figure on the national stage during the now-infamous “Stop the Steal” movement, which relied on misinformation to falsely claim that Donald Trump had won the 2020 election and sought to overturn the results of it."
