Fox News doctor: President Trump will lower suicide rates because hell make people feel good

Fox News doctor: President Trump will lower suicide rates because he’ll ‘make people feel good’


Dr. Kevin Campbell joined Fox News host Jenna Lee on Thursday afternoon to discuss health care under the Trump administration, as well as growing suicide and drug overdose rates facing the country, Mediaite reports.

“I think there’s been a lot of hopelessness in this country,” Campbell explained. “And the opioid addiction problem has been huge. That’s been a huge cause of death.”

He continued, “We have to give our kids hope again, and I’m hoping with the new administration we can do that. Make people feel good about what’s going on, support our children, support our seniors, make sure everyone feels like they got a fighting chance.”

Campbell seemed to believe that Trump’s White House would provide hope for Americans across the country. However, various suicide prevention hotlines were flooded with phone calls on election night following Trump’s victory.

Trump: The 1st U.S. President to earn "5 figures per episode" for producing TV while presidentin'

Donald Trump will remain an exec producer on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” which is returning Jan. 2 after a two-year hiatus with new host Arnold Schwarzenegger.

MGM confirmed to Variety that Trump has retained his EP credit on the series. The president-elect’s status on the 15th season of the reality series that made him a household name has been a question since Trump launched his presidential campaign in June 2015. In the credit sequence, Trump’s name will air after that of “Apprentice” creator Mark Burnett and before Schwarzenegger, who is also an exec producer of the new incarnation along with Page Feldman and Eric Van Wagenen.

The larger issue for MGM, NBC, and the White House is the payment that Trump will receive for the series. It’s unclear what his per-episode fee is, but it is likely to be in the low five-figures, at minimum. NBC has ordered eight episodes of “The New Celebrity Apprentice.” Trump’s fees will be paid through MGM, the production entity on the show, not NBC. MGM declined to comment on the financial terms of Trump’s deal. A spokeswoman for Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment. NBC declined to comment.

Trump is also a profit participant on the “Apprentice” franchise, which has been sold as a format in various markets around the world since it first became a hit on NBC in 2004. Trump bowed out as frontman of the show as he launched his political career. His last episode of “Celebrity Apprentice” aired in February 2015. NBC wound up cutting its business ties to Trump in July 2015 amid the outrage stirred by Trump’s assertion that many Mexican illegal immigrants are criminals and rapists.

Andrew Puzder, Trump's Pick for Labor Department, Was Accused of Abusing Wife

Andrew Puzder, Trump's Pick for Labor Department, Was Accused of Abusing Wife


Andrew Puzder, the St. Louis attorney who rose to become CEO of Carl's Jr. and now stands as Donald Trump's pick to be Secretary of Labor, was accused of abuse by his first wife in the 1980s — with police twice summoned to the couple's home.

The allegations were first aired in the couple's 1989 divorce. The abuse allegations in the divorce filings then became the subject of a July 26, 1989, Riverfront Times cover story.

Puzder denied the abuse both in a deposition for his divorce and in the RFT's story, calling his ex-wife Lisa Henning's allegations "baseless."

In her divorce filing, Henning alleged that Puzder hit her, threw her to the floor and unplugged the phone after she tried to call the police for her help. Puzder would later acknowledge in a deposition that he "grabbed her by the shoulders and pushed her back," but said he did it to stop her from hurting herself.

Kellyanne Conway sees no future in working for He-Man Women Haters Club (AKA "Trump's White House")

Kellyanne Conway Slips Up, Implies Trump White House Will Be Terrible Place For Women
There’s a sad subtext to her comments about why she won’t officially join the administration.
12/08/2016 12:59 pm ET


Kellyanne Conway suggested on Wednesday that she would turn down an official role in the White House because of the strain it would put on her family. Conway, who managed Donald Trump’s campaign, added that she would continue to advise the president-elect.

Conway did not, as some twisted media reports claimed, say that mothers generally shouldn’t work at the White House. Nor did she play the “woman card,” as one opinion columnist in The Washington Post tried to argue.

But what she did say at “Women Rule,” a conference hosted by Politico, signals that the environment for women in the Trump administration will be difficult. Men are the ones who rule in Trumpland, which adheres to “traditional” male-female roles when it comes to work and family. Modern notions don’t seem to apply.

Conway, who turns 50 on Inauguration Day, has four children under the age of 12 at home and a husband who works full time as a litigator at a prestigious law firm. Her choice makes sense. It’s also possible her comment was just an elegant ― and classic ― way to dump Trump. Leaving a job to “spend more time with family” is a time-honored politician dodge.

Question RE: "Celebrities" and LBN

I never thought about this one too much until I woke up to the news of Greg Lake's passing, which I posted in GD.

I understand "no celebrity news" in LBN. 2016 has been one hell of a year for loss in the music world, and I have split obit posts between GD and The Lounge.

"Celebrities" can be defined a number of ways..."anyone in the entertainment industry" or "anyone in the media, period."

By that definition, a guy like Greg Lake...who many would call a "legend"...is in the same category as Kim Kardashian. So is Trump.

So is an obit for someone like Greg Lake...or David Bowie...or any actor, musician, author of that stature...still considered "taboo" for LBN?

How, specifically, do you define "no celebrity news" in LBN, and I ask, because I have seen obits there.

Greg Lake dead aged 69: Lead singer of King Crimson and Emerson loses battle with cancer

Greg Lake dead aged 69: Lead singer of King Crimson and Emerson loses battle with cancer


Celebrated British singer, musician, songwriter and producer Greg Lake has passed away after a long and hard fought battle with cancer.

The Dorset born vocalist, who fronted both King Crimson and Emerson, Lake and Palmer, has died at the age of 69.

Greg was one of the founding fathers of progressive rock, and amongst his many musical accomplishments he's best remembered for songs including In the Court of the Crimson King and 21st Century Schizoid Man.

His manager confirmed that he passed away on Tuesday after "a long and stubborn battle with cancer", said his manager.

December 8...one of the worst "anniversaries" of our lifetime.

Wait...I get to be President, AND the RNC is paying me to have their Christmas party at my hotel?

"I got your conflict of interest right HERE! HA HA HA HA HA! (uses tiny fingers to point to tiny penis)...Keep making America great again, boys and girls. One day you could grow up to be just like me. Well, not just like me. Only I could be that great. But you could be maybe half like me, so keep shooting for the stars."

The Republican National Committee will host its Christmas Party this year at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., the newest property of its newfound leader.

The event, which two GOP sources confirmed to The Huffington Post, is said to be a more exclusive and celebratory affair this year owing to the unexpected election victories enjoyed by the party this November. But in moving the proceedings to Donald Trump’s downtown D.C. hotel, which only opened this past fall, the committee risks furthering the perception that the president-elect is leveraging his newfound political power for private gains.

Trump has yet to announce his plans for handling or transferring his vast business empire once he takes office. But the New York Times reported on Wednesday night that Trump plans to step down from his post while still maintaining a stake in the company.

Such a move will likely leave critics and concerned politicians and observers unsatisfied about potential conflicts of interest. Already, there have been complaints that Trump has carelessly ― if not unethically ― intermingled his business and political affairs. Those first surfaced during the campaign, when he spent millions on his own plane and property, and extended to the first weeks of the transition as he made various calls to foreign officials who resided in countries where the Trump Organization does business.
