Sheldon Adelson Pledges to Support Donald Trump

Source: Mother Jones

After months of remaining neutral in the Republican battle for the presidential nomination, casino magnate Sheldon Adelson on Thursday said he will back the party's presumptive nominee, Donald Trump.

"Yes, I'm a Republican, he's a Republican," Adelson said in an interview with the New York Times. "He's our nominee. Whoever the nominee would turn out to be, any one of the 17—he was one of the 17. He won fair and square."

Adelson, a fierce supporter of pro-Israel causes, also told a BBC reporter on Thursday he would support Trump as the nominee, believing the real estate magnate would be a strong ally to Israel:

The GOP megadonor, who spent a reported $150 million in the 2012 election, had previously abstained from weighing in on the primary battles—although it was widely believed Sen. Marco Rubio had secured Adelson's favor. With Rubio long gone and Trump now uncontested, Adelson becomes the latest Republican to get in line with the party's likely challenger against Hillary Clinton in the general election.

Arsenio Hall sues Sinead O'Connor for $5M over allegations that he "was Prince's drug dealer"

Arsenio Hall Sues Sinead O'Connor for $5 Million
Singer previously claimed talk show host was Prince's drug dealer, spiked her marijuana
By Brittany Spanos May 5, 2016


Arsenio Hall is suing Sinead O'Connor for libel due to the singer's recent accusations that the talk show host was not only Prince's drug dealer for years but that he also spiked O'Connor's marijuana at Eddie Murphy's house.

After news spread of the possible place painkillers or hard drugs may have had in the sudden death of Prince, O'Connor weighed in on the claims via a Facebook post published on May 2nd. "Two words for the DEA investigating where Prince got his drugs over the decades…Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince's and Eddie Murphy's bitch)," the singer wrote on her official page. "Anyone imagining Prince was not a long time hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land."

O'Connor continued to claim that she reported Hall to the Carver County Sheriff's office. "Expect their call. They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie Murphy's house."

The following day, O'Connor elaborated on her accusations of being spiked. In her account, Hall had invited the singer to a party at Murphy's home on the night of the Grammy Awards. O'Connor chose to not attend the ceremony, which she claims made Hall act maliciously towards her.

Trending on Facebook...Tweety's OgleGate ("caught on hot mic ogling Melania Trump")

'Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God that is good': MSNBC's Chris Matthews is caught on hot mic ogling Melania Trump


MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews has been caught ogling Melania Trump live on national television.

While Brian Williams was speaking about the impact the result would have on the Republican party, Matthews could be heard talking about Mrs Trump's appearance.

Apparently unaware he was speaking into a hot mic, Matthews said: 'Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God is that good. I could watch that runway show.'


In 2011, he said Republican Governor Sarah Palin 'could not be hotter as a candidate'. 'There’s something about her. It’s primordial,' the Hardball anchor said. Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God is that good. I could watch that runway show 'When she walks and moves, there’s something electric about it. Look at, there‘s something. Other candidates don’t do this. She’s constantly in motion. She looks, obviously, very attractive. She’s doing something that works.'

Ben Carson: Attorney General Cruz could "prosecute Hillary, and then go on the Supreme Court"

Ben Carson has a plan for Ted Cruz now that the Texas senator has dropped out of the GOP presidential race: attorney general, then Supreme Court justice under a Trump administration.

When Fox News Radio’s John Gibson asked Carson on Wednesday whether it would be “smart” for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump to offer Cruz a position on the Supreme Court, he said yes.

“I think he would be terrific on the Supreme Court, or I think he would be a terrific attorney general. Or he could be both,” Carson said. “He could be attorney general first, you know, go ahead and prosecute Hillary, and then go on the Supreme Court.”

"Tearful Ted Cruz supporter" Linda Bond is "sad and hurt by Americans"

Tearful Ted Cruz supporter Linda Bond hugs another supporter after her candidate exited the race Tuesday night. "[I'm] sad, hurt. Hurt by Americans," Bond said. "I believe that they had an opportunity of a lifetime and instead gave in to anger and emotion instead of thought."

The Ted Cruz event in Indianapolis on Tuesday night — deemed an election night watch party — was set to begin at 7 p.m. ET, right about the time Cruz supporters found out their guy had lost Indiana by a whopping margin. But just about everyone stayed after the news got out. Because when you're a supporter, you're a supporter.

They thought that once Cruz took the stage, he'd rally the troops and declare, yet again, that he would take his floundering presidential campaign all the way to the Republican National Convention in July, hoping for a delegate miracle on a second ballot.

A few times, when Cruz's face or name appeared on CNN, the crowd would cheer, but mostly they waited. Hung by the bar. Took selfies. Chatted. Strategized about how they could help Cruz the next day, as his campaign pushed on, when he perhaps might need it most.

But then there were rumblings. Tweets and such. Cruz was going to drop out. Many said they didn't believe it, but around 8:30 p.m. the man himself confirmed the news. Toward the end of a long speech filled with thanks to his supporters, family and friends, and much discussion of Ronald Reagan's legacy, Ted Cruz dropped out of the presidential race.

Bowie's "Blackstar" album cover (vinyl version) changes when exposed to sunlight


Some industrious fans have apparently discovered one more parting gift from David Bowie. They say they left the vinyl-edition cover of Blackstar, the late rocker’s final release, exposed to sunlight – and were thrilled as the image transformed.

Originally conspicuously black, in keeping with the title, the star on the LP’s cover reportedly becomes dotted with an entire galaxy of stars. See for yourself in the above image, which was uploaded to Imgur. (We recommend you take the vinyl disc itself out of the sleeve before trying this at home, by the way.)

Blackstar arrived just days before Bowie’s sudden death in January. Only later did fans learn of his lengthy, secret battle with cancer, and how Bowie had struggled to complete the project. “He made Blackstar for us, his parting gift,” Tony Visconti, Bowie’s longtime producer, memorably said. “I knew for a year this was the way it would be. I wasn’t, however, prepared for it.”

On the other hand, this latest Easter egg moment, if true, was so well hidden that it took months to discover. “He always did what he wanted to do,” Visconti said. “And he wanted to do it his way and he wanted to do it the best way. His death was no different from his life – a work of art.”

Hillary Clinton defends Kelly, Fiorina in outlining how she will run as a woman against Trump

Hillary Clinton defends Megyn Kelly, Carly Fiorina in outlining how she will run as a woman against Trump


Christina Bellantoni, assistant managing editor: How do you run as a woman against Donald Trump, given the type of things he said.... How do you anticipate this moving forward, particularly given that he seems to have no bounds when discussing women?

Clinton: The whole idea of "playing the woman card," which he charged I was doing, and by extension other women were doing, has just lit a fire under so many women across the country. And I think it’s because they see his attacks on me, or Megyn Kelly or Carly Fiorina or whoever else he’s attacking at the moment as really a much broader attack on them. I think we are going to be pushing back and drawing the contrast whenever he does that. Because it’s just absolutely beyond the pale. He’s not going to get away with it, at least going forward.

Andy Borowitz: Senate Officially Mourns Return of Ted Cruz


Ordering all flags at the U.S. Capitol to half-staff, the Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, announced the day of mourning in a somber proclamation. “We mark this day with a deep personal sense of loss that will never completely heal,” he said.

To recognize Cruz’s return, which is expected to be imminent, McConnell said that the Senate would suspend all work for the day. “Ordinarily our members would welcome a day off,” he said. “But not for this.”

“If that bastard had somehow been elected President, we would have only had to see him one day a year, at the State of the Union,” Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said. “I should have done everything in my power to make that happen. And now it’s too damn late.”

“We have to respect the will of the voters, but they didn’t think about the devastating effect this would have on us,” the usually stoic McConnell said, his voice quavering. “There’s a real human cost to this.”

I, for one, am very impressed to see Ted Cruz rebound so quickly and return to public service.
