After Ray Fisher hinted at problems between “Justice League” director Joss Whedon, star Gal Gadot and “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins, the actress confirmed clashes during movie reshoots. “He kind of threatened my career and said if I did something, he would make my career miserable,” Gadot told Israeli outlet N12 Saturday, expounding on what she previously classified as “issues.” “I just took care of it instead.” Fisher broke the seal on allegations of verbal abuse by Whedon, accusing him in July 2020 of “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable” behavior. In April, s...
Democrat Katie Hill ponders another run for Congress after ex-husband attacked her with revenge photos
Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) was the victim of what is being known as "revenge porn," where former partners weaponize photos or videos of their exes to get revenge after a breakup. Such was the case with Katie Hill's former husband, who released nude photos of her after her election to Congress. She quickly resigned, much to the chagrin of supporters and followers who believed she was the victim of an attack, and not in the wrong.
Speaking to Axios, Hill said she's watched Republican members of Congress have major scandals and not step down the way that she had.
"Having seen other people who've had scandals since I left, (Andrew) Cuomo and, you know, of course, Matt Gaetz ... you see that and, of course, they don't resign," she explained. "You really wonder how much of it was the pressure I put on myself because I was a woman, and because I'd been an advocate for the #MeToo movement, and how much of it was sexism and ... the public shaming aspect of it, the revenge-porn aspect of it."

NBC New's insurrection reporter, Scott MacFarlane, explained in a video uploaded to Twitter that one thing he has noticed is that the most egregious information in the cases of Capitol attackers isn't in the sentencing documents, but in their battle to be released before the trial.
In the video, he explained that he reviews every document published in the trials of those who beat police officers, chanted to hang Mike Pence and those who attempted to assassinate Democratic leaders.
"Some of the most compelling arguments from prosecutors — the most illustrative arguments — not coming in the charging documents but when they're trying to hold defendants in jail pending trial," he said.
He cited Robert Gieswein, a Proud Boy member, who is trying to get out of prison pending trial. He is accused of shooting three police with chemical spray, and MacFarlane explained that the prosecutors argued against his release characterizing it as terrorism.

Ryan Samsel, who will be in court on Monday. He's trying to get his detention order changed after being accused of beating a police officer unconscious during the Jan. 6 attacks. In that case too, the federal prosecutors said things that weren't in the charging documents either. According to MacFarlane, prosecutors said Samsel has a history of knocking women unconscious, citing a former pregnant girlfriend he burned in the face and held under water.

Former GOP chair chuckles at how furious Trump will be when he learns Ron DeSantis beat him in straw poll
A right-wing conference over the weekend proved that conservatives are still furious about Vice President Mike Pence not delivering the 2020 election to Donald Trump. But at the same time, they're also not ready to ordain Trump as their 2024 nominee.
During the Western Conservative Summit, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis won the straw poll, besting former President Trump. While Trump was fine with DeSantis before, former GOP chairman Michael Steele predicted that it isn't going to be long before Trump lashes out.
Steele played clips from the conference showing that Republicans are low on policy and big on "culture wars," like Mr. Potato Head, manufactured conspiracies like critical race theory, the continued attacks on LGBT people, and other right-wing ridiculousness.
"Huge races, but the most interesting news to come out of that Faith and Freedom coalition was the straw poll that had Ron DeSantis beating Donald Trump, as you just mentioned at the top of the show," said former Romney/Ryan campaign adviser Kevin Sheridan. "I think that's something to watch. If DeSantis actually were to get into a primary with Donald Trump, it would be a tough race all around. And you know, that's the most interesting news."
"Well, Kevin, I know one thing for sure, when the former president sees that poll where DeSantis did better than him, look for that other shoe to drop from Trump," said Steele.
