So… Not that we’re surprised, but Trump ain’t got no damn tapes. The president admitted to not having them on Thursday, tweeting, “With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea whether there are ‘tapes’ or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings.”
Yo. But peep how he put “tapes” in quotes, though. As if that wasn’t hi… Nevermind. But can we please also note how when asked about the tapes by press just a couple weeks ago, his response was: “I’ll tell you about that sometime in the very near future… I’m not hinting anything. I will tell you over a very short period of time”? Talk about anticlimactic :-\
Not sure if y’all’ve heard, but Bill Cosby’s reportedly planning a tour of sorts. And no, it’s not to perform standup comedy—but to teach young folks about… Sexual assault.
“This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today,” Cosby’s publicist, Andrew Wyatt, reportedly said on Good Morning Alabama. “And they need to know what they’re facing—when they’re hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things they shouldn’t be doing.”
Alright, so it’s not actually a tour. It’s going to be a series of town halls, but nonetheless, Wyatt says Cosby’s team is planning to stop in at least five cities, including Chicago, Detroit and Philadelphia, according to CNN. The announcement comes not long after it was revealed 10 of 12 jurors actually voted to have Cosby convicted.
We just… Sigh.
Obama isn’t here for the Senate Republican leaders’ healthcare bill. The former president took to Facebook Thursday to express his concern and disdain, stating, “The Senate bill, unveiled today, is not a health care bill. It’s a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America.”
He later added, “Simply put, if there’s a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family – this bill will do you harm. And small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation.”
The post came hours after Senate GOP leaders revealed their version of bill, which seeks to do away with large chunks of the Affordable Care Act, The Hill reports. Last month, House Republicans passed their version of the bill.
