MICHAEL BLOOMBERG TALKS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT ON 'THE VIEW'

Image
Michael Bloomberg on a possible 2020 run as a Democrat
“The Republicans did not exercise the check and balance on the White House that the Constitution calls for,” Bloomberg says.
He says he doesn't regret not running for president in 2016, but he says he could possibly run in 2020: "I've looked at it and I've said we'll, beginning of the year, focus on it."
"What I have asked for, and most of my friends have asked for are background checks," Bloomberg says of gun control. "We shouldn't be selling guns to minors, to people with psychiatric problems or people with criminal records. Other than that, the Second Amendment gives you the right to own weapons and there's nothing wrong with that. It's the Constitution — we're not going to change it."
Bloomberg On Climate Change -- The former NYC mayor reacts to the White House saying climate change report isn't based on fact: "When you ... see the forest fires, the floods, …

RECORDING ARTISTS TEGAN AND SARA'S 'HIGH SCHOOL' A MEMOIR

Image
Tegan And Sara
December 2018 (Burbank, CA) – High School, a memoir by Warner Bros. Records recording artists Tegan and Sara, will be published in the fall of 2019 by MCD, a division of Farrar, Straus & Giroux, alongside Simon & Schuster Canada and Virago in the United Kingdom.
High School is the revelatory and unique coming-of-age story of the identical twins from Calgary, Alberta. It follows Tegan and Sara as they grew amid grunge and rave culture in the 90s, well before they became the celebrated musicians and global LGBTQ icons we know today. While grappling with their identity and sexuality, often alone, they also faced academic meltdown, their parents’ divorce, and the looming pressure of what might come after high school. Written in alternating chapters from both Tegan’s point of view and Sara’s, the book is a raw account of the music, drugs, alcohol, love and friendship they explored in their formative years. A transcendent story of first loves and first songs, it captur…

NYPD TRY TO PULL BABY AWAY FROM MOTHER AT BROOKLYN SNAP CENTER

NYPD Tries To Take Baby Away
NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Video showing police officers in Brooklyn trying to pull a baby from the clutches of its mother as she was wrestled to the floor inside a food assistance center has prompted outrage as well as lots of questions.
A woman who was inside the SNAP center in Boreum Hill on Dec. 7 shared the video, which has gone viral. She told The New York Times that the child was "screaming for his life."
"The lady was begging for them to get off of her," Nyashia Ferguson, who posted the video on Facebook under the name Monae Sinclair, told the Times. "I was scared."
Ferguson said the mother had sat down on the floor of the social services center because of a lack of chairs. A security guard confronted her but she didn't want to move.
The office staff and Human Resources Administration peace officers made unsuccessful attempts to remove the woman "due to her disorderly conduct towards others, and for obstructing the …

ABC'S 'THE VIEW' TALKS KEVIN HART AND HIS NOT APOLOGY-APOLOGY

Image
THE VIEW ON KEVIN HART
Hot Topics: Kevin Hart steps down as 2019 Oscar host after homophobic tweets resurface.
"My biggest issue was his not apology-apology," Abby Huntsmans says of the way Hart handled the situation. "Why not use this as a platform to go out there and speak to one of the biggest audiences in the year on television?"
"The Oscars and a lot of award shows, particularly lately since Trump has been president, have been a platform for Hollywood to criticize this president for discrimination, for racism, for homophobia. So I do think that they are and should be held up to a higher standard if they are going to have that standing of them pointing a finger at others," Ana Navarro says. "At the same time, I think you got to let people and give people a chance to evolve."
"The problem that I have with it is this kind of mob mentality that we are seeing, these forced apologies." Sunny Hostin says. "Everybody sort of jumping o…
