Woman tells police Oprah instructed her to set fire at Las Vegas LGBT Center

Woman tells police Oprah instructed her to set fire at Las Vegas LGBT Center

http://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/woman-tells-police-oprah-instructed-her-set-fire-las-vegas-lgbt-center



A woman arrested in connection with a fire set Saturday night at the Las Vegas LGBT Center claimed she received instruction from Oprah to start the fire, according to a Metropolitan Police Department arrest report.

Grewndolyn Glancey, 21, faces a charge of first-degree arson. Surveillance video shows Glancey lighting a fire at 401 S. Maryland Parkway in two separate locations, the report indicates.

When taken into custody Saturday night, Glancey said the LGBT community “needed to pay for their sins,” according to the document.

Glancey was initially taken into custody in Valley Hospital Medical Center’s psychiatric hold area because she was believed to be suicidal, according to the arrest report.

"I would imagine nuts and crackers," she said.

Here's Why Donald Trump's New DC Hotel May Be a Financial Flop

Trump had said his DC hotel would feature two high-end restaurants. He had originally signed up two celebrity chefs, José Andrés and Geoffrey Zakarian, to open highly anticipated restaurants in the hotel. Then Trump launched his presidential bid by calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals, and both restaurateurs backed out. Trump is now suing each of them. The ongoing litigation has generated heaps of bad press for Trump. The lawsuits, coupled with Trump's controversial statements on the campaign trail, have also made the project toxic to other well-known chefs who have apparently steered clear of the project.

Top Chef's Tom Colicchio, the owner of Craft and a number of other top restaurants, tells Mother Jones that he was approached by the Trump Organization after Andrés and Zakarian backed out. But he quickly turned down the offer. Colicchio says he was put off by the way the Trumps had treated Andrés, a friend, and by the GOP candidate's comments about immigrants.

Colicchio says the battle with Andrés has hurt Trump's standing in the restaurant community and Trump's comments on immigrants have made it tough to work with the reality television mogul. "He's clearly a racist and makes racist comments, and we have an industry that has always reached out to an immigrant population and built on the work of an immigrant population," Colicchio says. "I think that the remarks [Trump] makes would make it very difficult for anyone to stand up in front of their staff and want to be part of what he's doing."

Colicchio is just one of several chefs who declined to get involved with Trump's DC hotel. As a result, the hotel will open with no top-drawer destination restaurant. Instead, it will feature just one establishment: BLT Prime, a chain steakhouse that is not likely to be a major attraction for tourists or locals. The other planned restaurant space in the hotel has been turned into a conference room. At some point, a seasonal bar might open, Ivanka Trump said in a recent deposition in the Zakarian case, according to the Washingtonian. "I would imagine nuts and crackers," she said of its food offerings.

More Republicans expect Clinton to win U.S. election than Trump: poll

Source: Reuters

More Republicans now think Democrat Hillary Clinton will win the presidency than Donald Trump, as their party's candidate struggles with difficulties including allegations of sexual misconduct and his suggestion he may not honor the outcome of the election.

A Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Wednesday and conducted from Oct. 20 to Oct. 24 found that 41 percent of Republicans expected Clinton to win the Nov. 8 election, versus 40 percent who picked Trump.

That reflected a sharp decline in confidence from last month, when 58 percent of Republicans said they thought their party's nominee would win, versus 23 percent who expected Clinton to prevail.

Among Trump's supporters, 49 percent in the latest poll said they believed Trump would win, down from 67 percent who felt that way at the beginning of the month.

Hillary Clinton TOTALLY EFFING PUNKS Trump with her choice of election night venue. YOOOOOOGE!



Election night is 13 days away, and Politico reports that Hillary Clinton finally has a venue for her victory rally: the Jacob V. Javits Center, overlooking the Hudson River in Manhattan. The venue, with its soaring glass ceiling, comes with obvious symbolic value for a candidate vying to become the first woman president. But the Javits Center also has an added significance for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump—it's one of his least favorite buildings in all of New York City.

It wasn't always that way. Trump acquired the option to develop the site early in his career as a real estate developer, and he spent years trying to get the city to build a convention center at his location on West 34th Street. "There wouldn't be a new convention center in New York today if it hadn't been for the Trumps," he wrote in his first book, The Art of the Deal, Trump even lobbied the city to name the building named after his family, offering to waive his $833,000 fee if they slapped the "Trump" name on the center.

But when the city chose a different developer for the project, Trump turned on it. In his book, he held the ensuing project responsible for "perhaps the most horrendous construction delays and cost overruns in the history of the building business":

Trump pimps “under budget” and “ahead of schedule" DC hotel, built 1 later than originally scheduled

WASHINGTON ― Instead of spending his morning in a hotly contested battleground state like Florida ― where Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton held an event encouraging people to vote early ― Donald Trump on Wednesday decided to promote his sagging brand at his glitzy new Pennsylvania Avenue hotel, just blocks from the White House.

Trump has made many unusual decisions this year, including campaigning in traditionally blue states like Connecticut, but this press conference was perhaps his most bizarre move. Over 200 journalists descended on the property at the Old Post Office, where they were handed promotional pamphlets about the hotel’s luxurious amenities before the GOP nominee and company executives launched into speeches about its perks.

“Today is a metaphor for what we can accomplish for this country, the same kind of thing,” Trump said as the ballroom’s massive crystal chandeliers glittered overhead. He said his successful real estate background shows he knows “how to work with government and get things done,” adding that his hotel ran “under budget” and “ahead of schedule.”

In fact, the project was completed a year later than originally scheduled.

Trump's Walk of Fame star destroyed with a sledgehammer, police investigate



http://deadline.com/2016/10/donald-trump-hollywood-walk-of-fame-star-destroyed-vandals-1201842842/

EXCLUSIVE: Donald Trump took a lot of hits today, and not just in the Presidential race. With less than two weeks to go before America decides if the ex-Apprentice host will pull off a surprise victory over Hillary Clinton, Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed early Wednesday morning by a man dressed as a city construction worker and wielding a sledgehammer and pick-ax in what looks to be a Tinseltown first.

The attack on the embedded, five-pointed terrazzo and brass star came at around 5:45 AM on Hollywood Boulevard. Located right near the Dolby Theatre, Trump’s star was dedicated in 2007 in recognition of his work fronting and firing on the NBC series. Apprentice EP Mark Burnett, Larry King and then Tonight Show host Jay Leno all spoke at the ceremony for Trump almost a decade ago.

Speaking to Deadline, the man said his name was Jamie Otis. He said he originally intended to remove Trump’s star completely to auction it off next month in New York to raise funds for the women who have recently come forward to accuse Trump of sexually assaulting them over the decades. In the past few months, 11 women have claimed the GOP POTUS candidate groped or otherwise attempt to get intimate with them. At a rally earlier this week, Trump told supporters the accusers were not telling the truth and that he would sue them after the November 8 election.

The removal effort was not a success today, with the star smashed into pieces but not leaving the ground.

Trump CLEARLY lost his sh*t over Joe's "back of the barn" comments

Trump, responding to Biden’s suggestion last week that he’d like to beat up the GOP presidential nominee for his comments toward women, mocked Biden and said he’d welcome a confrontation.

“Did you see? Biden wants to take me to the back of the barn,” Trump said at a rally in Tallahassee, Florida. “Me. I’d love that. I’d love that. Mr. Tough Guy. You know, he’s Mr. Tough Guy.

“You know when he’s Mr. Tough Guy, when he’s standing behind a microphone by himself,” Trump continued, standing behind a microphone by himself.

“Some things in life you really love doing,” Trump added.

Newt just effin' LOSES IT when Megyn reminds him that Trump is a sexual predator



http://www.rawstory.com/2016/10/watch-newt-gingrich-has-a-complete-meltdown-after-foxs-megyn-kelly-calls-trump-a-sexual-predator/

After the conservative broadcaster brought up the sexual assault allegations against Trump, Gingrich blew up.

“I’m sick and tired of people like you using language that’s inflammatory that’s not true!” Gingrich blurted. “When you use the words, you took a position. And I think it’s very unfair of you to do that, Megyn!”

A nonplussed Kelly responded, “Your defensiveness on this may speak volumes.”

“You wanna go back through the tapes of your show recently?” Gingrich snapped at Kelly. “You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy! That’s what I get out of watching you tonight!”
