  • {Vanity}So Hillary Clinton Overheats At 77 Degrees. Isn't The Debate Stage About 85 Degrees?

    09/25/2016 4:46:11 PM PDT · by TrumpTrain_VS_TheClintonToilet · 67 replies
    So Hillary Clinton claimed that she overheated and collapsed on a perfect 77 degree day in New York. Well, if she was telling the truth, then how will she be able to withstand being on that debate stage with so many hot stage lights all pointing at her? And not just the heat coming from the lights, what about the brightness as well? If Hillary manages to survive the warm and bright stage for 90 minutes, then can we all assume that the "Overheated Excuse" was all a lie between Hillary and all of her paid commentators and leftist news...

    “The western constantly changes depending on where we are as a society,” Fuqua explained. “What I wanted to do was bring it up to date and show people it’s an exciting genre. It represents who we are, what the promise of the United States is supposed to be.” The 1960 “Magnificent Seven” — itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 epic “Seven Samurai” — had featured white actors in even some of the non-Caucasian roles, with Eli Wallach playing the bandit leader Calvera and Horst Buchholz as a young Mexican gunslinger named Chico. In Fuqua’s remake, by contrast, four of...

    Colin Firth almost missed out on the role that launched his acting career because his hair was thought to be too 'ginger', it has been revealed. The British actor, 56, became something of an overnight heartthrob thanks to his portrayal of Fitzwilliam Darcy in the 1995 BBC adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. But screenwriter Andrew Davies has now revealed he was initially unsure about the star - until he was convinced to darken his hair.

    Hollywood is poised to out the A-list star who raped tragic ’80s child star Corey Haim and has brazenly gotten away with the abuse for almost three decades. RadarOnline is choosing not to name the superstar sexual predator at this time, but can reveal that he is one of the most recognizable faces in the industry. The closeted perv has never come out as gay — and even has children of his own. But in truth, the star behind the family-man facade is an evil monster who has led an extraordinarily twisted double-life. “This dirty little secret is an open...

    Huffington Post film reviewer Laura Goldman generally liked the new romantic comedy “Bridget Jone’s Baby,” but she had one problem: It doesn’t promote abortion. Goldman’s movie review read more like an advocacy piece for abortion. She argued that the comedy, the third in the Bridget Jones series, should have mentioned abortion because the pregnant 40-something main character would have considered it in real life. She wrote: “Bridget Jones’s Baby,” deftly written, generates a belly laugh a minute. The one flaw of the movie is that it overdoses on cuteness instead of taking the braver path of discussing birth control and...
