Sam Heughan, the Hot Ginger from Outlander, on rumors that he’s gay, and on why he’s played so many gay characters throughout his career:
“Yeah, I guess. I played a few gay parts and maybe people might make assumptions about me. I mean, it’s not true, but I don’t really care. I think, whatever, if that’s what you’re gonna pick out from someone’s performance.”
Still, a boy, or in my case, a grown-assed man, can dream about a gay Sam Heughan.
Shepard Smith, Fox news host, calling out _____ and the White House for banning a journalist because she asked a question they didn’t like:
“For those of you at home, if I may, journalists are not the enemies of the people. It’s quite the opposite. Our profession is enshrined in the Constitution and the fourth estate holds the essential job of being your eyes and often ears and, when appropriate, your voice. It’s a cornerstone of our republic. Over 22 years at this network, it’s been my experience that the journalists of Fox News and Fox Business and those of our colleagues at competitors at CNN and MSNBC, NBC, ABC and CBS, Bloomberg and PBS, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, The Washington Post—all of them operate in the public interests. We work to discern what is truth. Then to present it to you in context and with perspective. As your representatives in the people’s halls, we report to you without fear or favor while striving to hold those in power to the same standards. This is the foundation of what we do.”
Until we got a president who lies and lies and commits adultery and works with murderers and loves racists and hates immigrant children.
Then the press becomes the enemy because they seek the truth form the horde of liars.
Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers, on James Comey’s wish for people to vote Democratic, but not too far left Democratic:
“Really, James Comey? You’re worried the Democrats are going to move too far to the left? Really? I don’t know if you remember, but we were just about to have a nice, boring, moderate Democrat for a president until you decided to open your mouth a week before the election, you big, dumb scarecrow.”
Eric Church, country singer who appeared at that music festival in Las Vegas last year where dozens of people were shot to death,slamming the NRA for doing nothing:
"Something broke in me that night, and it still hasn't healed. There are some things we can’t stop, like the disgruntled kid who takes his dad’s shotgun and walks into a high school. But we could have stopped the guy in Vegas. I’m a Second Amendment guy. That’s in the Constitution, it’s people’s right, and I don’t believe it’s negotiable. But nobody should have that many guns and that much ammunition and we don’t know about it. Nobody should have 21 AKs and 10,000 rounds of ammunition and we don’t know who they are. [And the NRA has] been a bit of a roadblock. I don’t care who you are—you shouldn’t have that kind of power over elected officials. To me it’s cut-and-dried: The gun-show [loophole] would not exist if it weren’t for the NRA, so at this point in time, if I was an NRA member, I would think I had more of a problem than the solution.”
I semi agree with him, except you could stop a disgruntled teen from getting his daddy’s gun if daddy locked it up and didn’t give out the key the gun safe.
And he’s right about the NRA and
Oh, who’s kidding. F**k ‘em all.
Anderson Cooper, on _____ lawyer Rudy Giuliani who has flip-flopped badly on Michael Cohen:
“‘Lying for years,’ [Giuliani] says, which is strange because that means Michael Cohen must have been no less a liar when Rudy Giuliani was praising him for not being a liar. So was Mr. Giuliani lying in that clip you just heard or lying in this one from just a couple of months ago? … It’s confusing, to say the least. The honest honorable lawyer has also been deeply dishonest for years, or at least this week. Maybe it’s like truthful hyperbole or something. Or maybe like so much else these days is yet another thing that would be funny if it weren’t so serious.”
Just say Rudy Giuliani is a liar and leave it at that. And then add _____, Huckleberry, Kellyanne and that whole motley crew to the list of liars, too.
Sylvester Turner, mayor of Houston, responding to an anti-LGBTQ group’s over his appearance at Houston Pride:
“This is the most diverse city in America. We acknowledge and celebrate that diversity in all its dimensions. You can be diverse and yet separate, segregated and apart. As Mayor of this City, I want us to be diverse and , and I want to live in a City where people can be who they are and we can be tolerant of people’s opinions, ideologies, sexual orientation, ethnicities, religion and/or cultures.”
As it should be.
Bradley Kim, Air Force defensive back, becoming the first active football player in the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marines to come out as gay:
“I did not think this day would ever come, but I’ve finally reached the point where I am comfortable and confident enough with myself to say that I am gay. It’s been a long road to get to this point and I definitely would not be here without the love and support of my amazing family, teammates and coaches here at the academy, and my equally amazing friends. I feel blessed to have such receptive and understanding people in my life. I hope that I can serve as an example to those who are allowing their fear of acceptance to change who they are. I almost gave up my dream of playing division 1 football for fear of not being accepted by everyone, but today I am happy to say that I am a cadet at the Air Force Academy playing the sport I love with amazing people standing behind me and supporting me. If anyone feels like they don’t have a voice or feel like they are alone, just know there are plenty of people out there like you and me, and more that are willing to talk to you about it. God bless all and thank you to everyone who has made me feel comfortable to live my most genuine life.”
