Fox News host mimicks Ivanka Trump sex move, takes abrupt vacation

Fox News' Jesse Watters thought it was the perfect time at Fox News to make a sexual joke at a woman's expense. And he earned a three-day vacation for his on-air blowjob joke about Ivanka Trump after saying, "I really like how she was speaking into that microphone."

From Digg:

Despite Watters' efforts to play it off, it seems like the controversy has caught up to him. Today he announced abruptly that he would be taking a vacation with his family until Monday... three days into his new primetime slot.

The controversy comes on the heels of Fox News' firing of Roger Ailes and, more recently, Bill O'Reilly over sexual assault and harassment allegations, illustrating what appears to be a disturbing pattern disrespect for women.

This isn't the first time Watters has been in hot water. Last year, Watters received the ire of the internet over his now-infamous Chinatown segment, in which he ambushed random people in Chinatown and barraged them with racist questions.

In custody battle, Alex Jones is claiming to be a "performance artist"

Kelly Jones, ex-wife of Infowars lunatic Alex Jones, is in a custody battle over their three children. She says Alex is "not a stable person."

"He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin's neck," says Kelly Jones. "He wants J-Lo to get raped. I'm concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a member of Congress … He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast."

Calm down, said Randall Wilhite, Alex Jones' attorney at a pretrial hearing. "He's playing a character. He is a performance artist."

From The Week:

The Jones' children have lived with Alex Jones since the couple divorced in 2015. In a July 2015 broadcast, Jones brought his then 12-year-old son onto the show: "He is undoubtedly cut out for this, and I intend for him to eclipse what I've done," Jones said at the time. "He's a way greater person than I was at 12. I love you so much, and I didn't mean to get you up here, sweetheart, and tell people how much I love you, but you're so handsome, and you're a good little knight who's going to grow up, I know, to be a great fighter against the enemy."

Suspended sentence for idiot who pushed fisherman into a pond

In what looks like a deleted scene from A Clockwork Orange, a leering droog pushed an elderly fisherman into a pond while his sociopathic pal recorded it and laughed, "It's funny innit?" The pusher, Brendan Cleary (45), received a suspended sentence, though he was jailed for 12 weeks and ordered to pay £150 compensation. He is probably not very popular in Hillfields now that the video has been seen by many people there and around the world.

The videographer remains at large.

Catholic priest pointed rifle at 8-year-old boy and threatened to shoot him for liking the wrong sports team

A 54-year-old priest at St. Margaret of Cortona Roman Catholic Church in Little Ferry, New Jersey was arrested for endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated assault by pointing a firearm. Father Kevin Carter threatened to shoot the youngster for liking the wrong football team, say witnesses.

From NBC 4 New York:

The priest allegedly approached the boy before Mass services at the church on Sunday, Sept. 13, and asked to see him in one of the rectory rooms, according to prosecutors.

Once they were in the room, the priest allegedly had the boy stand against the wall, then retrieved a musket and pointed it at him, prosecutors said, citing several witnesses.

"As he raised his weapon and pointed it at the boy, he said, 'I'm going to shoot you,'" Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli told NBC 4 New York Friday.

Father Carter's lawyer said his client will plead not guilty. Read the rest

That douchebag pharma-bro hedge fund guy lowered the medicine price hike

Yesterday, former hedge fund manager Martin Shkreli (above) was in the news for jacking up the price of a drug called Daraprim from $13.50 per tablet to $750 per tablet. He went on Bloomberg to explain why he thinks a pill that costs less than $1 to manufacture should cost $750. He said that even at that price, "Daraprim is still underpriced relative to its peers." He then went onto Twitter to live up to his douchebag reputation by behaving like a douchebag - calling a journalist a moron for asking Shkreli why he increased the price of the medication, which helps people with compromised immune systems.

Today, Shkreli's Twitter account is closed to everyone but confirmed followers. He also said he would reduce the cost of Daraprim to "to allow the company to break even or make a smaller profit," according to NBC.

"Yes it is absolutely a reaction — there were mistakes made with respect to helping people understand why we took this action, I think that it makes sense to lower the price in response to the anger that was felt by people," Shkreli said, 32.

Jeremy Stahl at Slate says this isn't the first time Shkreli has gouged sick people:

When Shkreli was CEO of Retrophin, the company purchased a kidney medication approved by the FDA in 1988 called Thiola and increased the cost from $1.50 per pill to $30 per pill. That drug treated cystinuria, a lifelong disease for which there is no known cure and which afflicts about 20,000 patients in the United States.

Costco shopper, 78, punched in fight over free Nutella waffle sample

Police have arrested 24-year-old Derrick Gharabighi for punching a 78-year-old man who scolded Gharabighi for grabbing too many Nutella waffles from a sample cart at a Burbank, California Costco. Gharabighi has been charged with elder abuse and "inflicting great bodily harm."

From LA Times:

I'm not sure if Nutella is available in the California prison system, but if it isn't Gharabighi may have to go without any for a long time -- if convicted, he could receive up to 11 years in prison.

“The victim told Mr. Gharabighi that he wanted a sample and he shouldn’t take so many,” Sgt. Claudio Losacco said.

That’s when Gharabighi reportedly punched the man in the face. The man was hospitalized with a one-inch cut and swelling above his left eye, Guillen said.

Alaska troopers want to know why idiot in bear suit is harassing grizzlies

Why would someone wear a realistic bear costume and use it bother a mother grizzly and her two cubs trying to eat salmon in an Alaska river? First of all, he's lucky the mother bear didn't eviscerate him when he ran to within five to ten feet of the cubs and began “waving and jumping,” according to a group of people watching from a respectful distance. Second, it's stressful to the bears.

Alaska Fish and Game technician Lou Cenicola, was able to move the mother bear out of the way, and he tried to talk to the man. The man didn't remove the bear head, and didn't identify himself. He told Cenicola, “You have the license plate number. You figure it out.” Then he drove away, still in costume.

State troopers are investigating and said the man could face wildlife harassment charges.

$75,000 in rewards to catch drone operators who interfered with firefighters

Drone operators are causing problems for firefighters in California's San Bernardino County. On multiple occasions pilots of planes and helicopters loaded with flame retardant have had to abandon their missions because they've spotted drones flying next to their aircraft. If a drone collides with a plane or helicopter it could cause the aircraft to crash.

San Berdoo County supervisors are offering three rewards of $25,000 for tips leading to the identification of operators of drones that have interfered with firefighters this summer.

LA Times reports:

Drones first became a problem in the county during the Lake fire, which ignited June 17 and burned through more than 31,000 acres of wildlands in the San Bernardino National Forest and nearby San Gorgonio Wilderness.

Low-flying aircraft were preparing to drop fire retardant over flames in the Barton Flats area when a 3- to 4-foot drone was seen buzzing between two planes. Fire officials immediately grounded the aircraft. Fire officials later saw a second drone in the area.

On July 12 — the first day of the Mill 2 fire — officials had to briefly suspend a tanker after a drone was spotted flying over Mill Creek Canyon near California 38.

And for about 25 minutes, officials had to halt tankers over the July 17 North fire, which jumped Interstate 15 near California 138 and destroyed dozens of vehicles, U.S. Forest Service officials said.
