James Woods SUED For Accusing A Bernie Sanders Supporter Of Doing The Nazi Salute At A Trump Rally!

james woods sued bernie sanders supporter

It sucks to be James Woods right now.

On Monday, it was revealed that the Hercules star is being sued for mistakenly identifying a Bernie Sanders supporter as the person who did the Nazi salute at a Donald Trump rally in March of last year. Eek!

ICYMI, during the 2016 presidential race, the Trumpster tried to hold a rally in Chicago where a woman was photographed giving the Nazi salute (the event was eventually canceled due to heavy protester activity). When the pic began circulating on the web, Mr. Woods took to Twitter to accuse Portia Boulger of giving the salute as she was allegedly a Sanders "agitator/operative." This statement was more than false as Portia was in NO way the woman who was photographed at the rally. In fact, it was Illinois native and Trump supporter, Birgitt Peterson who was featured in the image.

While James retracted his tweet and clarified the mix up, he didn't immediately delete the message

Good or bad, this will prove to be a big deal for the Democrats moving forward as they fight Donald Trump's agenda!

On Saturday afternoon in Atlanta, Tom Perez — a former Labor Secretary under Barack Obama — was elected to serve as the chairperson of the Democratic National Committee.

Narrowly defeating Rep. Keith Ellison in a tough vote at the DNC's party meeting, Perez is now the first Latino chairperson of the committee!

Speaking to the group in a hoarse voice after the final vote — which Perez won by a tally of 235 to 200 over Ellison — Perez said:

Holy Shit, Bernie Sanders!!!

If you're looking for Donald Trump showing himself off to be a fool, boy do we have that for you here.

The Donald took to Twitter early this morning — as he typically does, well, every morning — but today was a little different.

That's because Senator and 2016 Democratic primary presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was just straight up not ready to watch The Donald spout bull shit.

Look at this unbelievable interchange (below), starting with The Donald's initial tweet:

Donald Trump Gets Caught In Yet Another Lie!

Filed under: PolitikDonald Trump

Donald Trump caught in another lie.

Donald Trump lied so often during his bonkers press conference on Thursday that our heads are still spinning!!!

In addition to acting like he was just so eager to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus when they'd already attempted to set up a meeting with him last month, the pathological POTUS is now insisting that Rep. Elijah E. Cummings canceled a scheduled meeting with him.

During the presser, Trump said:

"I was all set to have that meeting. We called him and called him. Very nice guy. He wanted it, but we called, called, called, called. They can't make a meeting with him. Every day I walk in I say, 'I would like to meet with him, because I do want to solve the problem.' But he probably was told by [Sen. Chuck] Schumer [of New York] or somebody like that — some other lightweight — he was probably told, 'Don't meet with Trump. It's bad politics.' And that's part of the problem with this country."

Well, the truth is that shit never happened.

Cummings himself addressed the issue after the press conference, posting a letter online that read in part:

Donald Trump Loses Another One! Labor Secretary Pick Puzder Withdraws His Nomination!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald Trump

Donald Trump's pick for Labor Secretary is out!

Andrew Puzder, the CEO of Hardee's and Carl's Jr. parent company CKE, has officially withdrawn his nomination!

After a mini-scandal involving an undocumented worker, more scrutiny led to the discovery of charges of spousal abuse by his ex-wife, who apparently appeared incognito on The Oprah Winfrey Show in the 1980s.

Add that to the fact he is against the minimum wage, in favor of replacing workers with more automation, and has been accused of mistreating his own workers, and you have a pretty terrible looking candidate with little chance of confirmation.

Bernie Sanders explained:

"The simple truth is that given his relationship to employees at the companies he runs, he was not fit to lead a department responsible for defending workers' rights."

Even Conservatives didn't think he could get confirmed.

FINALLY, one of these horrific picks shut down. Along with Michael Flynn stepping down and the Muslim Ban getting repelled, Trump is having a bad run!

Sadly, we're sure another awful name is on its way…

Bernie Sanders & More Male Senators Are Reading Coretta Scott King's Letter To Support Elizabeth Warren — And They AREN'T Being Silenced!

Filed under: PolitikViral: NewsSocial Issues

no title

Elizabeth Warren's words will be finished… even if she's not the one saying them.

On Tuesday, the Massachusetts Senator was formally silenced by Republican Senators for rejecting Jeff Sessions' attorney general nomination by reading a letter from Coretta Scott King.

Warren's reading of the 1986 letter, in which King objected to Sen. Sessions' nomination to be a federal judge, was cut short by GOP Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — who later banned Warren from the floor for the remainder of the debate.

But even though Warren was silenced, her words found a way right back to the senate floor!

Later in the night, Sen. Jeff Merkley supported his colleague by finishing what she started and elaborated on the context of King's letter — and specifically quoted the section McConnell objected to.

Unlike Warren, however, the Oregon Senator spoke without an interruption from McConnell.

The GOP got another earful of Warren's speech on Wednesday, when Democratic Senators Sherrod Brown, Tom Udall, and Bernie Sanders all read King's words:

Donald Trump's Secretary Of Education Pick Gets Schooled By Democrats After She Says Classrooms Need Guns To Fend Off Grizzly Bear Attacks…

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpBearEducationalSchool

no title

She's just as smart as the men in the Cabinet! Too bad that's not really saying much…

Donald Trump is about to become the most openly sexist President in the history of the United States in just two days' time — but even he couldn't get away with only hiring men in the White House.

Unfortunately for female politicians (and feminists everywhere, for that matter), one of only TWO women in his 16-person Cabinet may actually be the least qualified pick of the entire bunch!

Secretary of Education nominee Betsy DeVos had her Senate confirmation hearing Tuesday evening, where she somehow managed to overshadow her extremely anti-LGBT attitude on schooling by taking an even more barbaric stance on gun control in classrooms…

In fact, when asked by Sandy Hook rep. Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy about the place of firearms in schools, the Amway heiress literally answered:
