jeanine pirro dirt

Jeanine Pirro went running to Sean Hannity on Thursday after Whoopi Goldberg, having had enough of her defense of Trump’s hateful and abusive policies and behavior, unloaded on the FOX News host.

“I just felt that today was a microcosm of what is happening in America as the left suffers from this Trump Derangement Syndrome,” said Pirro to Hannity.

Added Pirro of the Whoopi encounter: She said ‘F you. F you.’ And I said, did you just say, ‘F you?’ Then she said, ‘get the F out of this building.’ And I felt like I was less than dirt. I couldn’t believe that I went there to have a conversation. I got thrown off the set, thrown out of the building, and as I walked away, she is yelling at me, ‘get the F out of this building!’ Sean, It’s sad.”

Seth Meyers Explains Why Republicans Are Protecting Trump Instead of Democracy: WATCH

republicans protecting trump

Seth Meyers wondered what a lot of people are wondering in last night’s ‘A Closer Look’ segment: why are Republicans protecting Trump?

Meyers first pointed out Senator Lisa Murkowski, who recently said: “When the president says something that I disagree with, I will state my disagreement, sometimes very directly. I don’t know if you’ve noticed — I’m not really a bomb thrower. I don’t really lay my body in front of the train.”

Replied Meyers: “That is an amazing quote. ‘I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I would never sacrifice myself for the greater good. I’m not one of those ‘serve the public’ types.’ Also, you don’t have to lay in front of the train. The train’s already off the tracks and headed your way.”

Meyers then pointed out Trump’s ties to Russian oligarchs might explain his affinity for Putin, yet the GOP still pushes back on seeing his tax returns.

For instance, Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY), who claimed that if Hillary had refused to release tax returns, Republicans would have been okay with it.”

Snapped Meyers: “That is insane. If President Hillary Clinton had been accused of colluding with a foreign adversary to undermine an election and refused to release her tax returns, Mitch McConnell would personally dig through her trash and break into her house like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible.”

And Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) said that it was Democrats’ fault they were hacked.

Said Massie: “We should protect our systems. You can’t protect stupid.”

Quipped Meyers: “What do you mean you can’t protect stupid? The Secret Service does it every day!”

Republicans see no need to subpoena Trump’s tax returns or protect our elections even after seeing Trump side with U.S. foe Vladimir Putin over our own intelligence officials, Meyers pointed out.

But one congressman thinks the solution is to make Trump’s tax cuts permanent: “Republicans use tax cuts the way Guy Fieri uses butter.”

Meyers concluded: “One of the keys to understanding what’s happening right now: The GOP establishment and donor class are fine with Trump’s attacks on democracy as long as they can enrich themselves. They’re hostile to democracy because democracy is hostile to their agenda and they think passing another tax cut bill and pleasing their wealthy donors will protect Trump politically. But if there’s one thing we’ve learned this week it’s that (playing Massie clip) ‘you can’t protect stupid.’”

Jason Mraz Talks More About His Sexuality: ‘I’ve Had Experiences with Men’

Jason Mraz Twitter

Last month, singer-songwriter Jason Mraz made headlines after penning a poem to the LGBTQ community which ended with the line, “I am bi your side, All ways.” Many interpreted it as a ‘coming out’ statement from Mraz.

Mraz spoke more about what he said in the poem in a new interview with Billboard: “Honestly, I didn’t realize it was going to be so telling. But I’ve had experiences with men, even while I was dating the woman who became my wife. It was like, ‘Wow, does that mean I am gay?’ And my wife laid it out for me. She calls it ‘two spirit,’ which is what the Native Americans call someone who can love both man and woman. I really like that.”

Cher Remembers Her First Encounter with Gay Men: WATCH

Cher gay men

 

Cher told GLAAD’s Anthony Ramos she had her first encounter with gay men in her own living room, though she didn’t understand what ‘gay’ was at the time:

“The first gay men I met I was 12 years old, and I came home from school and there were these two guys in our living room. And they were talking to my mom and her best friend. They were so happy and excited about everything they were talking about, so animated. And I thought, ‘These guys are much more fun than the regular men that come over to visit.’ And I didn’t know that they were gay, but I just thought ‘These guys are great,’ and it all started from then.”

Whoopi Goldberg Explodes at Trump-Bot Jeanine Pirro on ‘The View’, Ends Interview: ‘Bye’ – WATCH

Jeanine Pirro Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg blasted FOX News host Jeanine Pirro, who was the guest on The View after Pirro accused Goldberg of having “Trump Derangement Syndrome” (above).

Said Goldberg: “Did you just point at me? Listen, I don’t have Trump derangement [syndrome]. Let me tell you what I have. I’m tired of people starting a conversation with ‘Mexicans are liars and rapists.’ Listen, 62 years old. There have been a lot of people in office that I didn’t agree with. But I have never, ever seen anything like this. I have never seen anybody whip up such hate. I have never seen anybody be so dismissive.”

Pirro snapped back: “You know what’s horrible? When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens. What’s horrible is we have sanctuary cities.”

Goldberg replied: “What is horrible is when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people. Say goodbye. I’m done.”

Watch:

Page Six reports that things got even worse off camera:

The confrontation ended with liberal Goldberg allegedly shouting, “F–k you, get the f–k out!” at President Trump supporter and Fox News host Pirro.

During the screaming match, Pirro told Goldberg, “I’ve done more for abused women than you will ever do,” we hear.

“When Jeanine arrived on set she was looking for a fight and refusing to be on with Ana, demanding [Ana] not be in the segment,” an insider said. “[Pirro] was yelling at [‘The View’] executive producer and her staff like, ‘You need to handle this.’”

Another source told us that Pirro “was upset that Ana was there because she wasn’t told until the last minute. Ana is 24-7 anti-Trump. Jeanine wasn’t yelling, but you could tell they felt like the segment was being hijacked by shoving in an anti-Fox, anti-Trump person.”

In an earlier part of the segment, Pirro had spouted off her misinformed views about the Supreme Court, the rumor she was considered for attorney general, the Russia investigation, the James Comey firing, and more:
