In the category of:  Everyone’s worst PR nightmare – they laughed when they weren’t supposed to.

Donald Trump bragged about himself to the United Nations. The UN laughed.

His supporters love the line: Despite all of the losers and haters, Trump is MAGA-ing!
Which brings us to Tuesday morning — and Trump’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
“In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” Trump said, as he does.
“So true,” said Trump, clearly caught by surprise by the laughter. “I didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK,” he added to more laughter and some applause.

Donald Trump: Kavanaugh’s 2nd Accuser ‘Has Nothing’ Because She ‘Admits She Was Drunk’

Deborah Ramirez told The New Yorker that Kavanaugh thrust his penis in her face at a dorm party at Yale University in the early 1980s.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday continued to downplay the sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, questioning the credibility of one accuser because “she admits she was drunk” at the time of the alleged assault.

“The second accuser has nothing,” Trump told reporters of Deborah Ramirez, who told The New Yorker in an interview published Sunday that she believes Kavanaugh thrust his penis in her face when they were freshmen at Yale University in the early 1980s. “She was totally messed up. She admits she was drunk.”

“Oh gee, let’s not make him a Supreme Court justice because of this,” the president added in a sarcastic tone, according to The New York Times.



In the category of:  Cosby’s new role – prisoner.

Bill Cosby sentenced to 3 to 10 years

Bill Cosby was sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison on Tuesday for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand.

Cosby, 81, faced a maximum of 10 years in prison after prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed to merge the three counts of his conviction into one for sentencing purposes.

The DA tweeted:

Montgomery County DA@MontcopaDA

Bill Cosby sentenced to 3 to 10 years in state prison.

Prosecutors asked for a sentence of five to 10 years in prison. However, Cosby’s defense attorney asked for a sentence of house arrest, citing Cosby’s advanced age and blindness.

Once a groundbreaking actor known as “America’s Dad,” Cosby was accused by dozens of women of drugging and sexually assaulting them over his decades as a powerful media figure.

Cosby was convicted in April of three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and assaulting Constand at his home in 2004, in the first high-profile celebrity criminal trial of the #MeToo era.
