BBC’s ‘GENIUS’ satire of Piers Morgan’s interview with Trump is… a vulgar ass joke (VIDEO)

The Mash Report BBC Two

    

You can pick apart Piers Morgan’s recent interview with Donald Trump for factual flaws, or mock Trump’s “not a feminist” comment… or you can simply make anal sex jokes, like BBC Two did.

Both Trump and controversial ITV Breakfast presenter Morgan offered plenty of ammunition for critics during their “world exclusive interview” on Sunday, January 28: From Trump’s “I’m not a feminist” admission to his ideas of climate change.

Indeed, RT joined in as well, talking about Trump and Morgan’s off-screen links among other things.

But most of those bullets have now been used up, and BBC Two has now decided to run this:

Comedian Rachel Parris, in a 4-minute segment on the “satirical and surreal news show” ‘The Mash Report,’ decided to have her own belated go at the controversial interview – by showing off a sketch of Morgan with his face buried between Trump’s butt cheeks. GENIUS (that way, in all caps) is how BBC Two’s official twitter page promptly labeled the crude drawing.

Parris’ point was that the interview was a “celebrity puff piece,” not “hard-hitting journalism.” The vulgar cartoon, along with the comments drew a predictable peel of laughter from the audience – and mixed reactions on the network’s, and Parris’ own Twitter accounts. Some called it brilliant and spot on, others were not so thrilled, though.

One tweeter commended Parris for her “effort on trying to get noticed”, considering she has some 23,000 Twitter followers compared to Morgan’s 6 million.

Morgan himself retweeted the segment several times, saying he “can take it” and wants the world to see “exactly what the BBC did.”

The Putin I Know – Interview!

Archbishop Gabriel Interviews

The Putin I Know
Interview With Archbishop Gabriel
By Brother Nathanael Kapner January 25, 2018 ©
___________________________________

ARCHBISHOP GABRIEL, born in 1961, serves as the Bishop of Canada with the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR).

Upon graduating from Holy Trinity Seminary in New York in 1984, he became an instructor of Russian culture at the Seminary until 1989.

After serving as an assistant to his superiors, he was ordained as a hieromonk and soon consecrated as a bishop in 1996.

Steeped in the history and culture of Russia, Archbishop Gabriel speaks with authority on the religio-political scenario of that nation of which he and his peers call “Holy Russia.”

His “Monarchy Must Come To Russia” reveals a penetrating perspective on world events.
____________________________

Brother Nathanael: You were in Russia this past December for a Bishops Conference of the Russian Orthodox Church. Did you see President Putin?

Archbishop Gabriel: Yes. Like last spring, he made a special effort to meet with us again.

Br Nathanael: What’s your impression of him?

Abp Gabriel: He’s intense, a quiet intensity bounded by an air of confidence.

He’s a driven person without the harsh edges. For along with his drivenness is an air of inner calm. It’s really remarkable since he’s under severe attack from the West.

Br Nathanael: Is Putin interested in Church affairs?

Abp Gabriel: Very much so, both in Russia and abroad.

Soon after his first term, Putin worked to hasten the reestablishment of unity within the Russian Church which had separated during the Revolution, with part in the Diaspora and the other part in Russia.

We were separated due to the Communists taking control of the Church which the Bishops abroad opposed.

Putin was convinced that unity was necessary for the entire Russian world, and by the time of his first term the Church was free from government control.

Br Nathanael: When did you first meet Putin?

Abp Gabriel: In 2001, ten days after 9/11. Putin came to the Russian Embassy in Washington DC to give a talk at which many people were present including the media. After the talk, I, together with a few others, was invited to meet with him privately. Afterwards, we had a short one-on-one chat.

Then in 2003, we, the bishops who comprised the Synod of Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR), were invited to greet him at the Russian Consulate in New York City which is just two blocks away from the Synod building.

Instead of an expected short session, we had dinner with him and ended up talking for over 2 hours, which surprised everyone.

Putin set aside much more time for church matters than for meetings with heads of state.

Br Nathanael: What do you make of that?

Abp Gabriel: He’s comfortable with us. His body language is unmistakable. Yet it’s not in the realm of familiarity but in the realm of respect. Respect, yet comfortable.

For example, in 2005 he specifically asked to visit our Church headquarters at 93rd and Park while on official business to venerate the famous Kursk Root Icon which has been in ROCOR’s possession since 1920.

Metropolitan Laurus, of blessed memory, and I welcomed him. Then we did a short prayer service, he venerated the Icon, and afterwards we had tea for another half hour. It seemed he could’ve stayed all day.

Br Nathanael: Many say Putin poses as a Christian for political points. Is his faith sincere?

Abp Gabriel: There’s nothing for him to gain by ‘parading’ his Orthodoxy, as many say, since he’s immensely popular and will easily win the election come March.

I personally believe Putin’s faith is sincere, and let’s mention that just this past Christmas he attended the church where his father was baptized.

Another reason I’m convinced of his sincerity is that he always wears and treasures the Cross his grandmother gave him, which once saved him from a serious mishap.

He’s also a frequent visitor of Valaam Monastery, much more than people know about. I’m told this is where Putin has a Spiritual Father.

Br Nathanael: Does Putin’s Orthodoxy translate into a vision for the future?

Abp Gabriel: Putin understands full well—since he didn’t grow up as a Christian (he makes no secret of this) and like millions of others has returned to his Orthodox roots—that Russia’s future well-being hinges on how the current and next generation is brought up, that good Orthodox Christians can only strengthen Russian society.

The old Soviet system based on atheism could in no way strengthen the nation and we see by contrast in the short 20 years since the fall of communism it’s come a long way.

Br Nathanael: What’s missing in Putin’s presidency?

Abp Gabriel: The same thing that was missing in Yeltsin’s and Medvedev’s presidency.

Br Nathanael: What’s that?

Abp Gabriel: Monarchy – the ideal form of government, with the understanding that the monarch would be an Orthodox Christian who’d rule the country in conjunction with the Church’s teachings and act as a defender of the faith, both domestically and globally.

This, for the most part, is the historical reality of Russia. Russia’s culture was built upon the life of the Orthodox Church, especially before the era of Peter the Great. The hope is that Monarchy in Russia will be reinstated.

But the people aren’t ready for it. To this day there’s still not a proper evaluation of the tragedy of the Russian Revolution.

Br Nathanael: How so?

Abp Gabriel: First of all, we still see Lenin lying in Red Square with the paradox of various towns, streets, and even subway stations bearing the names of Bolsheviks who were in fact “executioners” of ordinary Russian people and foremost of Orthodox Christians.

Even recently a monument to Felix Dzerzhinsky, a Bolshevik persecutor of Orthodox Christians, was erected in Kirov. The residents were given the option to return the city’s original name to Vyatka but they voted for the communist name instead.

How can we talk about monarchy when Russians don’t fully comprehend the tragedy of their history?

Br Nathanael: How do you deal with it?

Abp Gabriel: I pointedly ask Russians, “Why are you indifferent to Lenin and the Revolution when he and his cronies murdered tens of thousands, if not millions, of Orthodox Christians?”

They answer, “It’s part of our history.”

I respond, “It’s not just history, it’s the wrath of God that came down on Russia because the people abandoned their Orthodox Christian roots.”

The American writer, Pat Buchanan, said that this is something Americans should be thinking about as well. America was founded on Christian principles and most Americans in some way identify as Christians.

If we also stray from Christian principles, God can only be patient for so long.

The New Negro: Unseen Martin Luther King Interview From 1957

BLuke Miller Truth Theory

Shocking interview with Dr Luther King shows the struggle black people had to injure to simply be accepted a citizens.

The clip was taken from a show called the open mind, a series which explored new and out of the box ideas. The introduction of the show tells a story of the collective indoctrination that had taken place during the time, in which black slaves that were “acquiescent” (submissive) were portrayed as happy slaves and those who wanted their freedom and rights as unhappy trouble makers.

While slavery had been abolished when this video was released, it was a time when racial segregation was in full force and the narrative of the time, was that whites were the superior race.

What’s shocking about this video is that it is not that long ago and much of the current population were alive when this message was being shared. And while it may seem (to some) that racism is not as prevalent now, institutionalised racism still exists. Through environmental conditions (which could be argued as intentional or not) black people in America have less opportunity, worse educations and are far more likely to be targeted by the police. So while it is a shock in this video to see the attitude towards the black community, maybe in another 50 years, we’ll look back to the current day and also be shocked at how people are being treated in America.

Breaking Interview: Lead Author of ‘Dirty Vaccines’ Study Speaks Out

AG: Certainly the particles, be they isolated, aggregated or clustered, are not supposed to be there. They are foreign bodies our tissues can’t recognize and, because of that, they are perceived as potential enemies. The biological reactions are expected to be fairly complicated, with macrophages that try to engulf them the way they do normally with bacteria and parasites. Unfortunately, though, the particles we found then and keep finding now in vaccines are not biodegradable. So, all macrophages’ efforts are useless and, also depending on the chemical elements involved, the particles may be especially toxic. Cytokines and pro-inflammatory substances in general are released and a granulation tissue forms enveloping the particles. This involves inflammation, and, in the long run, such a chronic condition can lead to cancer.

In the case of vaccines, besides the local problem we checked for Mainz, there are three more possibilities: one, the most likely, is that those particles spread throughout the body and, because of their small quantity in such a comparatively huge volume, they don’t immediately trigger any clinically visible reaction. The next, certainly rarer, possibility is that they are carried by the blood and move to the central nervous system and, more in particular, to some of the different compartments of the brain. Depending on the point they reach, the reaction is obviously different. So, conditions like, among others, autism are impossible to rule out a priori.

The last possibility is that particles or other contaminants reach the microbiota. In that case, unlike what happens with the brain whose reactions become visible in a few hours, nothing can be seen before weeks or a few months. The bacteria that form our microbiota are essential to synthesize enzymes, many of which are indispensable for the proper functioning of some of the numerous activities of the brain. If that is the case, that production can be wrong and the chemistry of the enzymes be not what it should be. The supply of enzymes containing, for instance, mercury or other pollutants takes time to be delivered and that’s why the reaction is not immediately detectable.

Kellyanne Conway’s Interview With Chris Cuomo Quickly Flies Off The Rails

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway claimed Wednesday night that no one in Donald Trump’s White House talks about Hillary Clinton. The interview came just hours after the president himself mentioned Clinton several times. 

“Nobody here talks about her,” Conway told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “Hey Chris, Nobody here talks about Hillary Clinton, I promise you.”

The two were engaged in a heated discussion about the Russia investigation when Conway mentioned Clinton and the 2016 election. 

“So many people can’t get over the election results,” Conway said.

“Says my friend who can’t keep Hillary Clinton’s name out of her mouth,” Cuomo shot back. 

See the full exchange above. 

That wasn’t the only eyebrow-raising moment of the interview. Conway gave Cuomo an epic eye-roll that harkened back to the one Anderson Cooper threw at her last year: 

The two sparred about the First Amendment, specifically Trump saying he wanted to change libel laws

CUOMO: For a man who says as many things that are as demonstrably false on a pace that we have never seen any president even approach, it is odd that he want’s to be in the fact-checking business. 

CONWAY: Oh that’s nonsense. He’s demonstrably successful on a pace we’ve never seen. 

They also shared an apples-and-bananas moment while talking about how drugs get across the border:

CUOMO: Putting up a wall isn’t going to stop illegal drugs coming into this country and you know that.

CONWAY: Oh that’s ridiculous.

CUOMO: They come by air and they come in tunnels. I’ve been in them. I’ve been in those tunnels.  

CONWAY: They come all different ways. Are you saying, I’m sorry Christopher, are you telling the viewers that no drugs come through the southern border? Did you just say that?

CUOMO: No, I’m saying the idea that a wall…

CONWAY: Facts first! Be an apple, don’t be a banana!

CUOMO: …the wall is going to be a difference is a joke. 

Conway was apparently referring to CNN’s apples and bananas “Facts First” ad campaign

They even argued about the interview itself: 

CUOMO: You can’t just run through an explanation, trample the facts and then move on. You gotta give me a chance to get in here.

CONWAY: Whoa, whoa, whoa, don’t just do that just because it’ll make for a great viral moment or a promo, I see them in all your Cuomo promos.

CUOMO: There’s only one promo and you’re in it once but that’s OK.

The exchange prompted sharp reaction on Twitter:

Top Takeaways From Senate Interview Of Man Whose Firm Probed Trump’s Russia Ties

WASHINGTON — On Tuesday, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee unilaterally released the transcript of that committee’s interview with a co-founder of Fusion GPS, the research firm that hired former British spy Christopher Steele to investigate ties between Russia and the Trump presidential campaign.

The Judiciary Committee talked to Fusion’s Glenn Simpson in August as part of its investigation into Russian election interference and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow. The interview focused on Fusion’s work with Steele, who compiled allegations of salacious and corrupt ties between Donald Trump and Russian government officials going back several years. BuzzFeed published the unsubstantiated allegations last January.

Once a bipartisan effort, the Judiciary Committee’s inquiry has splintered along partisan lines, with Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) working to discredit Fusion by portraying it as a Russian operative.

Simpson answered questions from committee staffers for nearly 10 hours, producing more than 300 pages of transcript. Last week, he accused the committee’s Republican members of selectively leaking details from the interview to far-right media outlets while refusing to release the transcript in full.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) appeared similarly frustrated with her Republican counterparts. “The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice. The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public,” she wrote in a statement explaining her unusual decision to bypass the committee’s chairman in releasing the document.

Here are the top takeaways from the transcript:

Simpson was cooperative.

Grassley told The New York Times that Simpson was “uncooperative” during the interview. But the transcript shows the former Wall Street Journal reporter providing forthcoming responses to questions about Fusion GPS’s work with Steele and Steele’s communication with the FBI. Simpson did decline to comment on Steele’s sources and the identity of Fusion’s clients.

Simpson also answered extensive questions about Fusion’s work for an American law firm that represented Prevezon, a shell company owned by a Russian business that was accused of money laundering.

Simpson saw Natalia Veselnitskaya the same day she met secretly with the Trump campaign.

Natalia Veselnitskaya was Prevezon’s lawyer in Russia so Simpson interacted with her when Fusion was working on the Prevezon case. She was also the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort in June 2016 at Trump Tower. The Trump team took the meeting with her under the impression that she would provide damning information the Russian government had acquired about Hillary Clinton.

Simpson saw Veselnitskaya in court for the Prevezon case in New York on June 9 — the same day she met with the Trump team. He saw her again on June 10 at a dinner in Washington, D.C., but said they were seated at opposite ends of the table. He first became aware of her role in the Trump Tower meeting when The New York Times broke the story the following year. “I was stunned,” Simpson told the committee.

Steele sought out the FBI because he was worried candidate Trump was being blackmailed by Russia.

Fusion hired Steele in May or June of 2016, after exhausting open-source methods of investigating Trump, Simpson said. The former spy produced the first of several memos for Fusion in June 2016 and then suggested going to the FBI.  

“His concern,” Simpson said, was “whether or not there was blackmail going on, whether a political candidate was being blackmailed or had been compromised.”

Simpson signed off on the decision and Steele took his information to someone he knew at the FBI in late June or early July, according to Simpson. Steele traveled to Rome in September to give the FBI a full debriefing.

The FBI thought Steele was credible because they had received a similar tip from a Trump insider.

After briefing the FBI, Steele told Simpson that the bureau “had other intelligence about this matter from an internal Trump campaign source,” according to Simpson.

“My understanding was that they believed Chris [Steele] at this point — that they believed Chris’s information might be credible because they had other intelligence that indicated the same thing and one of those pieces of intelligence was a human source from inside the Trump organization,” Simpson said during his Senate interview. Asked to clarify whether the source was part of Trump’s campaign or Trump’s business, Simpson declined to comment.

It’s possible that Simpson was referring to George Papadopoulos, a onetime foreign policy adviser on the Trump campaign team. Although Papadopoulos didn’t go to the FBI, he told an Australian diplomat in 2016 that Russia had dirt on Clinton. The Australian government later passed that information to the FBI.  

Steele “severed his relationship” with the FBI after the Times reported the bureau found no Trump ties to Russia.

On Oct. 31, 2016, The New York Times reported that the FBI had not “found any conclusive or direct link between Mr. Trump and the Russian government.” Steele, who had been meticulously documenting allegations of ties between Trump and Russia, was taken aback. He stopped dealing with the FBI “out of concern that he didn’t know what was happening inside the FBI,” Simpson told the committee. “There was a concern that the FBI was being manipulated for political ends by the Trump people and that we didn’t really understand what was going on.”

Liz Spayd, then the New York Times public editor, addressed this story last January and implied that the paper’s reporters were aware of Steele’s unsubstantiated findings but weren’t able to verify them. “I have spoken privately with several journalists involved in the reporting last fall, and I believe a strong case can be made that The Times was too timid in its decisions not to publish the material it had,” Spayd wrote.

“Somebody’s already been killed” as a result of the publication of the Steele dossier.

Near the end of the interview, Jason Foster, Grassley’s chief investigative counsel for the committee, pressed Simpson on what steps he took to verify the credibility of Steele’s sources. Simpson declined to answer. When Foster pushed back, Simpson’s lawyer Joshua Levy interjected.

“It’s a voluntary interview, and in addition to that he wants to be very careful to protect his sources. Somebody’s already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier, and no harm should come to anybody related to this honest work,” Levy said.
