[email protected] asks @Comey to respond to comments made about him by Rudy Giuliani, who Comey worked for back in 1987: “I guess the love is gone,” Comey said. #PostLive pic.twitter.com/W3kuEJnVGe — Washington Post Live (@postlive) May 8, 2018 James Comey‘s relationship with Rudy Giuliani has changed quite a bit over the years. In a live talk with the Washington Post on Tuesday, the former FBI director was unsparing when describing just how much the two former colleagues have recently diverged. Interviewer Carol Leonnig started off, noting, “In your book you also talk a little bit about what I find really interesting, the beginning of your career as a prosecutor. And you write as a young person in 1987 working for someone no other than Rudy Giuliani.” Leonnig then read a brief passage from Comey’s memoir wherein Comey lavishes praise on his one-time boss while at the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Comey writes, and Leonnig recites: I loved it that … [Read more...] about Comey on His Former Boss Rudy Giuliani: ‘I Guess the Love is Gone’

Last year, io9 was able to speak with Paul Bettany, who plays the Vision, and Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Wanda/Scarlet Witch, about their characters’ romance in Avengers: Infinity Arc. Bettany previewed the way that his character will be affected by Thanos’s quest (spoiler alert: badly), and Olsen spoke about the opportunity to do such an “emotional arc” in a superhero film. Both actors emphasized the importance of romance for their characters’ arcs. “Vision’s been on this quest to understand what being human is,” Bettany said, “and I think Scarlet Witch, in a large degree, helped him figure that out and what love is.” Olsen also said that having Vision by her side makes the conflict more personal for Wanda. “This is definitely the most emotional arc I’ve done in an Avengers film, that’s for sure,” she said. “… It just feels like you have something really specific to … [Read more...] about I Guess Avengers: Infinity War Is Going All In on This Scarlet Witch/Vision Thing
Fox & Friends ridiculed Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday morning, for her answer to questions over whether she would take a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage. Warren was asked about her heritage claim on Fox News Sunday by guest host John Roberts, and in response the Massachusetts Democrat deflected, citing her family history and what she had been told by her parents. On Fox & Friends, co-host Steve Doocy explained that Warren “has been accused of saying she is native American of that kind of heritage to get jobs, as for instance, as a Harvard law professor.” Doocy added that Warren’s response to Roberts’ question as to whether she would take a DNA test to prove her heritage was “a good case of deflection.” After playing the clip of Warren, Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade replied, “Right, so I guess that’s a no.” “I’m not sure, she said the whole life story,” Kilmeade joked. … [Read more...] about Fox & Friends Ridicules Elizabeth Warren For Deflecting Question on DNA Test: ‘I Guess That’s a No’
Director Quentin Tarantino has been under a lot of well-deserved fire in recent days, both for his treatment of Uma Thurman during the making of Kill Bill, and for the sickening comments he made during an interview with Howard Stern back in 2003 that resurfaced recently to remind us all what a sexist toolbag he can be, despite creating nuanced female characters. Now, he’s apologizing for the latter. Great? As reported by the New York Daily News, Tarantino released an apology directly to Roman Polanski’s rape victim, Samantha Geimer, whom Polanski drugged and raped when she was thirteen, but whom Tarantino said in the resurfaced interview “wanted to have it.” He has apparently rethought that position (the recent backlash he’s experienced helped, I’m sure) and released the following statement: “I want to publicly apologize to Samantha Geimer for my cavalier remarks on “The Howard Stern Show” speculating about her and the crime that … [Read more...] about Quentin Tarantino Apologizes to Roman Polanski’s Rape Victim, Which Is a Good Thing, I Guess?
