Pop star Lizzo has rerecorded a song, stripping out an offending lyric that she learned was ableist. “It’s been brought to my attention that there is a harmful word in my new song ‘GRRRLS,’ " she said on Twitter Monday. “Let me make one thing clear: I never want to promote derogatory language.” The song contained the line, as she sings over a Beastie Boys sample, “Hold my bag/ Do you see this s---?/ I’m a sp-z/ I’m about to knock somebody out/ Yo, where my best friend?/ She the only one I know to talk me off the deep end.” Disability advocates immediately lashed out on Twitter, informing her t...

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) revealed that running for president is "not something that I don't consider."
During an interview on Wednesday, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones pushed the Georgia lawmaker to launch a 2024 campaign.
"I think you would poll better and be a better candidate than [Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R)] and [former President Donald Trump]," Jones insisted. "I'd rather just go ahead and back you for president."
"You're way smarter," the radio host pressed after Greene laughed. "You're smarter than both of them and you've got the guts we need. Everybody loves you. I'm serious. We need to think about MTG for president."
"Get the New World Order off my back! Stop the Drag Queen story time!" he shouted. "We want you MTG!"
"Well, thank you, Alex, and I will tell you it's not something that I don't consider," Greene replied. "But you know I'm the kind of person that if I ever get engaged in something, I'm going to win. And I won't do something unless I think it's possible."
Greene went on to say that she would serve as a Vice President for Trump or Florida Gov.

Former White House Counsel Pat Cipollone has agreed to speak to the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on Congress on Friday.
Former Assistant Deputy Attorney General Harry Litman told CNN that Cipollone has carefully negotiated the testimony and he will likely "steer around down the middle" of the attorney/client privilege. However, former President Donald Trump is not the client of a White House counsel, the White House is. President Joe Biden has waived executive privilege for anything involving Jan. 6 or the 2020 election.
"He is a greatest hits package of crazy statements by Donald Trump," Litman said of Cipollone. "He is the one who says to Mark Meadows, 'You know, if you do this, you'll have blood on your effing hands.' He's the one who says to Mark Meadows about [Mike] Pence, 'You've got to stop it' and Meadows says, 'You've heard him. He thinks the rioters are right.' He's the one who has to go to Cassidy Hutchinson, a 25-year-old, and plead with her because Meadows won't speak to him. 'Please try to keep him from going to the Capitol.' He's the one who says, 'if I go to the Capitol, it will be every effing crime imaginable.'"
"Now, they've negotiated it up, and probably what he wants is to say he's not piercing attorney/client privilege. But all these statements I've said to you, Trump's nowhere around. So, attorney/client has to be with the client for the purpose of getting legal advice, so he's got tons to say without that."
As Litman explained, Cipollone is in "everything."

Ahead of his sentencing for child sex trafficking, Joel Greenberg, who is an associate of Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz, says he's cooperated with numerous investigations, Newsweeks reports.
Greenberg pleaded guilty to six federal crimes, including sex trafficking of a child, identity theft, stalking, wire fraud, and conspiracy to bribe a public official. He now faces 12 years in prison.
Greenberg's lawyer filed a motion on Tuesday saying that he has been "cooperating with federal prosecutors in active investigations currently being conducted by the United States Attorney's Office in the Middle District of Florida and the Department of Justice in Washington D.C. as well as in other jurisdictions" in order to "mitigate the significant penalties he faces."
"If this Court sets a hearing on the motion, the proceeding will convey specific information to the Court concerning Mr. Greenberg's cooperation against multiple individuals," the motion stated.
As Newsweek point out, Gaetz is currently under investigation by the Justice Department over allegations he had sex with a teenage girl and paid for her to travel over state lines with him. The 17-year-old girl in question is also at the center of the investigation into Greenberg.
