    Donna Karan is still kicking herself. Almost two weeks ago, in a speech that could’ve been straight out of the Jihadist’s Guide to the Hijab, Karan gave a bizarre defense of her good friend, Harvey Weinstein. In between grinning broadly like the Cheshire Cat on Ritalin, the designer rambled on about how women could be asking for sexual harassment and groping because of how they dress. “How do we display ourselves, how do we present ourselves as women, what are we asking? Are we asking for it, you know, by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality?” she wondered....

Elisa Grubbs made the allegation in an affidavit released late Monday by her attorney, Lisa Bloom. Grubbs is the cousin of another accuser, Marion Brown, who reached a confidential settlement with Conyers over sexual harassment allegations but broke a confidentiality agreement to speak publicly last week. "Rep. Conyers slid his hand up my skirt and rubbed my thighs...

    The former supermodel, 62, filed a complaint against Cosby, 80, over his response to a 2014 interview with Entertainment Tonight in which she said that the actor had sexually assaulted her in 1982 after giving her an unknown pill. Soon after that interview aired, Cosby's attorney Marty Singer responded to requests for comment by disputing Dickinson's claim that she was drugged and raped by his client and calling the allegation 'an outrageous defamatory lie.' The judge ruled on Tuesday that because he sent out that statement and a subsequent press release Singer too will face claims in the case. 'We...

    Bill O'Reilly's claims have merit as we all know there are entities that peddle in paying for false allegations to damage the reputations of a given target, i.e. Fusion GPS being paid by the Hillary Clinton campaign to produce a "dossier" to slime opponent Donald Trump. New revelations appear to back him up.

    As Florida’s politically powerful men fear becoming targets of sexual harassment allegations, the new-found awareness of a male-dominated Legislature has come with a cost: Women are collateral damage. Female staffers and lobbyists who returned to the Capitol last week for pre-session meetings discovered many male legislators will no longer meet with them privately. Accustomed to Tallahassee’s Southern culture, where men and women casually and routinely greet each other with hugs, legislators are doing an awkward dance to replace a hug with a handshake. And the fear of retaliation — against women who brought forward allegations or those who may in...

    NBC’s Megyn Kelly featured an interview with three Donald Trump accusers prior to a press conference by Brave New Films, a leftist company releasing a documentary of the accusers. A White House spokesperson said: These false claims, totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts, were addressed at length during last year’s campaign, and the American people voiced their judgment by delivering a decisive victory. The timing and absurdity of these false claims speaks volumes and the publicity tour that has begun only further confirms the political motives behind them.

    Attorney Lisa Bloom set her sights on Fox News’ Jesse Watters with two tweets Wednesday evening. Bloom represented Perquita Burgess, the woman recently ousted Fox News host Bill O’Reilly allegedly called “Hot Chocolate,” and on Wednesday, she blasted Watters for participating in “an environment that reduces every woman to sexual plaything [sic].” “We all saw your hand to mouth gesture on the video,” she continued. “We brought O’Reilly down. Maybe you should be next.” Bloom was referencing comments Watters made on Tuesday’s broadcast of “The Five.” While discussing Ivanka Trump’s recent speech at a European women’s summit, the “Watters World”...

    LISA BLOOM, NBC LEGAL ANALYST: Now, this issue about charging, which I find to be a racially-tinged offensive word in and of itself, but I would have asked him, what exactly does that mean? Because at one point he says Mike Brown took a step forward. Another time he says, he took a hop, as he was about to run and then he began running. So running is inconsistent with one step forward. So which is it, Mr. Wilson? I mean, you really have to get to the bottom of it. You can't let an ambiguous word like 'charged' get...

    A CNN headline during Tuesday's 11 a.m. hour of Newsroom asked, "Should Bush officials be tried for war crimes?" CNN legal analyst Lisa Bloom argued that the U.S. should submit to the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court for the mass murder of Iraqis that far exceeded the 9/11 atrocities. Bloom downplayed the 9/11 terror attacks in the face of the Iraq War. When anchor Ashleigh Banfield noted that America responded to 9/11 with force and not in a "sanguine" manner, Bloom compared it to the Iraqi casualty count: "And that was 4,000, not 100,000, not 10 years."
