    Donny Deutsch might have set a vulgar new low in expressing contempt for supporters of President Trump. On today’s Morning Joe, Deutsch referred to a group of Trump supporters as “fluffers.” For those who might be unfamiliar with the term, “fluffer” is defined as “a person employed on a pornographic film set to ensure that male actors are kept aroused.” After uttering the slur, Deutsch, a sly smile on his face, added, “I just said that word, didn’t I? Well, just metaphorically, of course.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Police in Indiana believe a pet pig might've thwarted would-be robbers from burglarizing a home in Indianapolis. The thieves broke into the home this week and "completely damaged [the back] door," the homeowner, who wished to remain anonymous, told Fox 59. Whoever broke in, however, didn't steal anything, and police apparently suggested the family's pet pig, named Dumplin, is to blame. "The officers were guessing when the person broke in they were probably surprised I had a pig and were like, 'We don't want to deal with this,'" the single mother of four said. "The cop was like we definitely...

    U.S. pork producers are about to be bitten by a second batch of hefty retaliatory tariffs from China and Mexico — and that has some large producers predicting they could lose big money and be forced to invest overseas. Executives say the pork industry has been expanding in recent years, in part on the expectation of export opportunities that would continue to support growth. However, the threat of a trade war is adding uncertainty and driving fear. "We put a halt on all investment, not just because we will be losing money, but because we don't know if growing in...

    Bill Maher began by asking Moore about the “Hail Mary” plan he supposedly had to prevent the replacement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. “Listen, the Senate right now is 50-49. Sadly, McCain will not be able to vote, so it’s a 50-49 vote,” Moore declared. “C’mon! We’ve got to push it off til after November.” “And I don’t trust every Democrat,” Maher told Moore. “I’ll join a million other people surrounding the United States Capitol,” Moore responded. “I will stand there. I will put my- Bill, let me tell you something. If this judge goes through, for at least the rest...

    NORTH RIDGEVILLE – Police in northeast Ohio said they received a call from a man walking home early Saturday morning claiming he was being followed by a pig. That's right. A pig. Police didn't believe it, either. The North Ridgeville Police Department said it responded to the “obviously drunk guy walking home from the bar at 5:26 in the morning” in Elyria. When police arrived, they found a man who was not drunk at all. And apparently, he was telling the truth. Police confessed the man was not walking from the bar named "Train Station" but rather from the actual...

    A North Carolina jury awarded $50 million to neighbors of a 15,000-hog farm in Eastern North Carolina in a case being closely watched across the country by environmentalists and the hog farm industry. The verdict, revealed late Thursday after a jury deliberated less than two days, is the first to come in a series of federal lawsuits filed against Murphy-Brown/Smithfield Foods, the world’s largest pork producer. In this case decided in a federal courtroom in Raleigh, 10 neighbors contended that industrial-scale hog operations have known for decades that the open-air sewage pits on their properties were the source of noxious,...

    A team of scientists says it has created a pig that can be used in transplantations in humans. According to the team, which includes researchers from Meiji University and Kyoto Prefectural University, the animal is the first to be developed for transplantation based on national guidelines for xenotransplantation, in which animal organs and cells are transplanted into humans. The team will present its findings at a forum of the Japanese Society for Xenotransplantation in Suita, Osaka Prefecture, on Saturday, and plans to jointly supply the pigs with a private company early next year.

    Award-winning actress Meryl Streep took a shot at first lady Melania Trump and White House adviser Ivanka Trump for their “silence” on sexual harassment. Hollywood and Washington have been grappling with sexual misconduct allegations in recent months, and numerous well-known men in the media, politics, and the entertainment industry have been forced to resign or were fired as accusations surface. In an interview with the New York Times published Wednesday, Streep was asked about her own silence on the allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein. “I don’t want to hear about the silence of me. I want to hear about...

    Three additional women who previously interned for TV veteran Charlie Rose accused him of misconduct. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, one woman told Business Insider that Rose touched her legs and invited her to his hotel room, while two others said he greeted them at his home wearing a bathrobe and invited them inside. The additional allegations emerged after a Washington Post report on Monday detailed the accounts of eight women who said the 75-year-old made unwanted advances, exposed himself in their presence, or groped their breasts, buttocks or genitals. Among the three women who spoke to Business Insider...

    Opponents of an armed population often make the unfounded claim that AR-15 rifles are unsuitable for hunting. Joe Clowers of Texas shows that America's favorite rifle, some variation of the AR-15, works very well for hunting feral pigs. From theepochtimes.com: A Texas man shot a 416-pound boar that he found ripping up his backyard and terrorizing the makeshift deer sanctuary he has on his land. Joe Clowers, of Union Grove, Texas, said he shot the boar with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. He was fed up with the boar preying on his fawns for the last five years. The semi-automatic...

    For people who love bacon but hate everything it does to their diet, scientists in China may have created a way to have your pig and eat it too. A team of researchers have genetically altered pigs to carry nearly 24 percent less body fat. Using the CRISPR-Cas 9 gene editing technique, the team reportedly modified a group of pigs which gave birth to much leaner piglets. The experiment, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), is looking to make pigs less susceptible to the cold. Scientists noted that modern pigs, especially younger ones, lack the ability...

    In a striking advance that helps open the door to organ transplants from animals, researchers have created gene-edited piglets cleansed of viruses that might cause disease in humans. The experiments, reported on Thursday in the journal Science, may make it possible one day to transplant livers, hearts and other organs from pigs into humans, a hope that experts had all but given up. If pig organs were shown to be safe and effective, “they could be a real game changer,” said Dr. David Klassen, chief medical officer at the United Network for Organ Sharing, a private, nonprofit organization that manages...

    wo Omaha police officers who were involved in the June death of an unarmed, mentally ill man will stop working at the city on Friday. The police labor contract bars the city from releasing disciplinary information in most cases, so Assistant City Attorney Bernard in den Bosch didn’t say whether the officers had been fired. But he said Thursday: “As of tomorrow morning two officers will no longer be employed by the City of Omaha.” He said the two officers are Scotty Payne, a five-year veteran of the force, and Ryan McClarty, a two-year veteran.
