Donald Trump “showed Angela Merkel his bedroom” during private White House tour

Trying to defend President Trump’s personal relations with the German chancellor Angela Merkel, Richard Grenell who is the US ambassador to Germany, said Trump had given her a “very personal” tour of his private living quarters.

“Donald Trump personally led the Chancellor through the part of the White House where he actually lives,” said Grenell in an interview with several German newspapers.

“Angela Merkel even saw the president’s living room and bedroom. That was very personal. No president has shown that to her before.”

During Angela Merkel’s first visit to Washington, President Trump did not respond when she offered to shake hands. When she returned last week she was given only a quick working visit rather than the ceremony rolled out for French President Emmanuel Macron.

But the US ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell claimed Trump and Merkel have “great chemistry” and said the two leaders were able to joke together.

Although they have “different views on some issues” President Trump has “incredible respect” for the Angela.

The US embassy in Berlin confirmed that President Trump had given Angela Merkel a tour of the White House private quarters. They visited a number of bedrooms, including the historic Lincoln Bedroom which is today used as a guest room, a spokesman said.

Howard Stern: Mike Francesa Had The World’s Shortest Retirement

Earlier this week, Howard Stern and Robin Quivers were discussing sports host Mike Francesa return to WFAN and their own feelings on retirement.

“I’m just one of these human beings, I’ve accepted it just to be miserable all the time. And work makes me miserable. But then people say to me, ‘if you didn’t have work you’d be miserable too, you would miss it.’ But I really do not believe that’s true,” Stern, 64, remarked.

Howard had just returned from a week-long vacation when the comments were made.

“On vacation, I get up and have breakfast. Then I’d get up and take a walk with my wife. Then I’d come home and I’d paint. I enjoy the painting. I had a great time. I don’t think I’d have any problem being retired.”

It seems that Mike Francesa return to WFAN made Stern think long and hard if retiring now would be the right decision.

“That’s why I was following the Mike Francesca story while I was away. I was kind of obsessed with it. I was just so interested.” Stern explained. “Like literally a month ago, he was set for his retirement. He said I want to retire: ‘that’s it I’ve had enough, I don’ want to do this anymore.’”

“So the guy leaves in December and all of a sudden he’s back. That is the world’s shortest retirement,” added Stern.

Alex Jones: “I feel like the Syria strike is Donald Trump’s funeral”

Some of President Trump’s most hardcore base turned on the president Friday over his decision to launch military strikes against Syria without Congressional approval in retaliation for an alleged chemical attack by Syria’s President Assad.

“Fuck Trump, and fuck these fucking people,” said Alex Jones, before bursting into tears. Alex Jones has been referred to as “the man who got Trump elected” by the mainstream media due to his early, vocal and unrelenting support during the 2016 campaign.

“If he had been a piece of crap from the beginning, it wouldn’t be so bad,” Jones said of Trump. “We’ve made so many sacrifices and now he’s crapping all over us. It makes me sick.”

Many Trump supporters have lost jobs, friends, family members during the campaign because of their fervent support for him. The Syrian strike has come like a slap in the face for most of President Trump’s hardcore base – and Trump could seemingly care less.

Trump himself tweeded against a potential Syria strike without Congressional approval back in August 2013. “The President [Obama] must get Congressional approval before attacking Syria – big mistake if he does not!”

“I haven’t had Trump call me in six months,” said Jones. He was streaming live from the Infowars studio Friday night because President Trump had just announced a strike on Syria. “I will tell Trump that you really betrayed your family and your name, and everything you stood for with this horse manure.”

“I shouldn’t even be live right now,” he said. After a couple of calmer sentences, Jones started to yell again: “Fuck Trump!”

“I’m not in a fucking cult for Donald Trump.”

Syria has always been a dividing point between Trump’s online base and America’s right-wing politicians, left-wing politicians, mainstream media.

“Attacking a foreign nation that has not attacked or threatened America is globalist interventionism. This is not America First. This is not what Trump was elected for,” tweeted Infowars writer Paul Joseph Watson in a message shared by Ann Coulter.

Trump launched the attack on Syria before any international evidence of President Assad’s supposed chemical attack had been presented. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, article 11, states: “Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defence.”

Stormy Daniels told Bubba the Love Sponge that Donald Trump “was the best in bed”

Former Howard 101 host Bubba The Love Sponge is back on the air in Florida. The Bubba the Love Sponge show airs on AM 820 News and 98.3 FM Pinellas County.

Bubba was recently featured on CNN for a 2007 interview he did with Stormy Daniels where Stormy discusses her alleged relationship with Donald Trump.

From CNN:

Bubba the Love Sponge Clem, known as Todd Clem before he legally changed his name in 1999, played portions of the interview on his radio show Friday and Monday, in which Daniels was asked to write down the names of famous men she had slept with. Clem says the first name on that list was Donald Trump. Although neither Daniels nor the host says Trump’s name in the 2007 audio, she can be heard describing key details that match the description of her alleged affair with Trump.

Clem said on his nationally syndicated radio program that Daniels was talking about Trump, and later verified the same information to CNN. CNN independently corroborated the story with another person who was in Clem’s studio that day, who would speak only on the condition of anonymity. That person also said Donald Trump’s name was the first on Daniels’ list.

Clem told his listeners in January that he had removed the appearance from his archives, the website Bubba Army Radio, because he didn’t want any unwanted attention in advance of an upcoming federal court case with Nielsen over alleged ratings tampering by Clem.

“Be careful on this one. Do not say a word,” Clem can be heard saying, cautioning Daniels and his co-hosts to not speak the man’s name.

Daniels, when asked how long the affair took place, added that it lasted “less than a year.”

Later in the show, Clem plays short clips of Daniels responding to questions over the alleged affair. Daniels said the tryst took place in “Nevada, but not Vegas.” At the prodding of the radio hosts she says it was in Lake Tahoe, which is where Daniels first encountered Trump at a celebrity golf tournament in 2006.

She said she found it “horribly embarrassing” that this person was the best in bed of the three people on her list and added that the person contacted her “twice a month.”

She later added that there was no money exchanged.

“There was no exchange of money,” said Clifford. “I’m sure if he had felt the need to graciously help me I would have put it in my purse.”

Bubba the Love Sponge declined to be interviewed for the CNN story, citing a pending civil matter, but provided CNN with a statement:

“This interview happened in May 2007. I only asked the questions. Stormy answered them. I wish her and our President nothing but the very best. I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. We need to stop worrying about the past and focus on the future. President Trump is our President, regardless of who he slept with 12 plus years ago. The media and haters need to get over it,” said Bubba.

This would be the earliest known instance of Stormy publicly discussing the alleged affair.

Howard Stern’s advice to Donald Trump: “Just give it over to Mike Pence”

Donald Trump was a regular on the Howard Stern show prior to assuming the presidency. Howard admits he is not an “insider” with Trump, but also says that they used to have a friendly relationship and he considered Donald Trump a personal friend.

“I was watching the news. They said that the president calls his friends and asks advice,” said Stern.

“He’s never once called me and asked for advice. Which kind of got me a little upset.” Robin Quivers suggested that President Trump might not expect good advice from him, Howard agreed.

“Yeah, probably not,” he said. “My advice would be, like, get the fuck out of there man. Just give it over to Mike Pence. Let him do his thing.”

By signing the $1.3 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill last week President Trump has completely betrayed his hardcore base. Even die-hard MAGA supporters like Alex Jones and Mike Cernovich are convinced impeachment will occur.

Artie says his latest court appearance “went great”

Artie Lange appeared in court on March 23. Artie said his latest court appearance “went great.”

Artie was arrested for drug possession last year, 81 decks of heroin to be specific. He was supposed to be sentenced in February, but that date was pushed back when he was hospitalized for health related issues.

“Just out of court. It went great. It was a pre-sentence interview. I saw the judge who is very fair,” Lange tweeted after leaving Superior Court in Newark on Friday morning. “She said I looked better! The interview went well. So I’m praying for probation but I will respectfully do what they tell me to do!”

Artie is scheduled to be sentenced on May 18.

Artie Lange facing “anywhere from three to five years” in jail?!?

Last month Artie tweeted that he had checked into a hospital to get his blood sugar under control. A couple of months prior to his hospital stay, Artie was beaten by a pipe in a New Jersey jail. Today, Artie is back in rehab seeking treatment for drug addiction and possibly facing 5 years of prison time for drug possession charges.  He was arrested back in March 2017 for possession of cocaine, heroin, and drug paraphernalia at his home in Hoboken, New Jersey.

But that wasn’t the only time he was arrested in 2017. In May 2017, Lange was arrested after he was allegedly seen driving his Range Rover erratically near a McDonald’s on the Garden State Parkway. Police said they found him with a large bag of heroin on his lap. Lange was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

When police arrested him for not showing up to court, Lange pleaded guilty to possession of 81 decks — each deck is about 1 to 15 grams — of heroin.

“I went in the hospital to get my blood sugar under control,” he tweeted mid-February 2018. “I’m out to go to work. I missed too many days & I insisted. My blood pressure is way up. So I have to go back in tonight til it’s down. I’m payin for an unhealthy life. When the medication is right I will be fine.”

Artie who is now 50, admitted that he had gotten scared after a doctor told him he was in danger of suffering a stroke.

“So don’t worry. But when a doctor says I’m in danger of a stroke unless I change everything I do I get insanely scared. I hate the hospital but they said if I don’t go back they’d refuse to treat me. I will do this guys. I ain’t ready to check out yet.”

Artie Lange‘s sentencing hearing has been pushed back because the comedian remains in rehab seeking treatment for drug addiction, Lange’s attorney told Page Six.

Artie is now scheduled to appear in court on March 23.

Possibilities for penalties Artie could face include a drug treatment program, probation or probation with a split sentence — a year in county jail, for instance. But in general, jail time for possession of heroin could mean anywhere from three to five years. – Brian McCauley said, a criminal defense attorney who worked as a prosecutor in Mercer County for 30 years.

The fact that Artie is completing a stay in rehab could help but 81 decks heroin is a lot for anyone to be arrested with.

Howard Stern Wins 2017 Lawsuit Over Airing of Taxpayer Call

Back in February 2017, Judith Barrigas filed a lawsuit which put Howard Stern and the U.S. government in the odd position of having to defend a leak of tax information.

Judith Barrigas was suing the United States of America, Howard Stern and the Howard Stern Production Company on grounds of unlawful invasion of privacy and negligence, among other things.

That day, I.R.S. agent Jimmy Forsythe called up The Howard Stern Show, presumably to be a guest. He was put on hold. So Forsythe got back to work and spoke to Barrigas, who had a problem with her taxes. When Stern was ready for Forsythe and put him on air, he was in the midst of a conversation with Barrigas.

“Jimmy, go ahead,” said Stern that day. “You’re on the air in Long Island…Jimmy?”

“$71 due on the 20th,” said Forsyth.

“Jimmy, you’re on the f***ing air,” exclaimed Stern.

“What is he doing?” asked Stern’s co-host Robin Quivers. “Making a transaction?”

The I.R.S. agent continued to talk to Judith for several minutes without being aware that Stern, Quivers and their audience were listening in and making fun of what was being said. “It sounds like a raw deal,” said Stern at one point, and when Forsyth finally finished with Barrigas and checked in on his other line, he heard Stern comment, “Dude, we just heard your whole transaction. What’s going on, man? You got the most boring job, dude.”

In response to the lawsuit, the U.S. government argued it had sovereign immunity under the “tax exception” to the Federal Tort Claims Act. Meaning, that it couldn’t be held liable for actions, even wrongful ones, made by a federal government employee while acting within the scope of employment.

A Massachusetts federal judge has ruled that a private call between an I.R.S. agent and taxpayer Judith Barrigas that was broadcast on The Howard Stern Show was somehow related to the collection of taxes and also wasn’t “sufficiently personal or intimate in nature.”

The judge says the disclosed tax information was “imprecise and only roughly identifiable with a particular individual.”

Judith Barrigas’ name, social security number, address and other identifying information weren’t disclosed. Nor did Stern’s audience hear the sound of her voice. The only thing that might possibly identify her was disclosure of her telephone number, which was publicly listed.

The judge concludes, “There may be circumstances in which the publication of tax-related information does constitute an invasion of privacy under Massachusetts law, but for the reasons stated above, the level of the intrusion was significantly diminished here.”

Alex Jones Accused of Grooming Former Employee for Gay Sex

Two former employees at InfoWars.com have accused founder and radio host Alex Jones, who was a guest on The Howard Stern Show in 2013, of discrimination and sexual harassment, the Daily Mail reports.

Rob Jacobson, a former video editor who worked for InfoWars.com for 13 years, alleges his co-workers and managers called him “The Jewish Individual” and “The Resident Jew,” and that Jones regularly humiliated and belittled him. Jones allegedly called Rob Jacobson “Beefcake” and was grooming him for gay sex.

‘Alex was walking by and it was a “look what I’ve found” moment, I invited him to check it out.

‘But when I clicked on this picture to see the full resolution image, a gay porn website popped up, it was a click-bait picture.

‘I was shocked and embarrassed but Alex knew what had happened so I quickly clicked off, but he instantly jumped on it and called me “Beefcake”.

‘That afternoon he continued calling me Beefcake, the next day it was Beefcake, I thought it would maybe go away, like sort of childish behavior, office banter, but it didn’t.’

In the EEOC report, Jacobson writes of the incident: ‘From 2008-2012, Alex Jones called me Beefcake, referring to male porn stars,’ Jacobson said. ‘I felt like this was intimidating and harassing and a form of sexual harassment in that he was grooming me for homosexual sex.’

On one occasion, Jones allowed a friend to display gay porn on Jacobson’s computer, according to the EEOC report.

‘In 2014, The CEO of the company, Alex Jones, allowed his friend Shane Steiner into my office to display on my computer with images of gay pornography,’ Jacobson said, adding that he made a formal complaint to the human resources department.

He continued: ‘I believe this action was a continuation of the intimidation and sexual harassment in that he was grooming me for homosexual sex.’

The Daily Mail reports, “The abuse got so bad that one member of staff photoshopped Jacobson’s face on to the image of an Orthodox Jew under the words ‘THE JEWISH INDIVIDUAL DEMANDS YOUR HOT TOPICS’ and printed it out for all to see.”

Rob Jacobson who was fired in 2017, is planning to sue Alex Jones for discrimination, harassment, and unfair dismissal, in addition to his EEOC complaint.

Alex Jones responded to the allegations on his radio show, stating “it never happened.”

SiriusXM Bringing Back HowardTV Style Video Service

SiriusXM has committed to launching a Howard Stern video service similar to HowardTV. The possibility of an on-demand video service has been a subject of much discussion ever since HowardTV was closed. SiriusXM will draw on 30 years of Stern interviews for Howard Stern video service starting this summer.

In its most recent quarterly conference call SiriusXM CEO James Meyer used the anticipated launch of a new and redesigned app for SiriusXM to segway into discussion of video offerings, which led to much awaited news about Howard Stern video.

“With the new app in the marketplace, our plan is to launch video, first with Howard Stern in the second quarter and then follow-up later in ’18 with additional short-form content from around the SiriusXM bundle. Let me be clear, we are waiting into the video pool, not diving headfirst. Our approach to video is just one part of our non-stop effort to add value to the SiriusXM experience, and that always starts with our content.”

“I know our Howard customers absolutely are going to want Howard video. I don’t even need to do the research. Howard customers want one thing: more Howard.” – James E. Meyer Chief Executive Officer, SiriusXM.

If SiriusXM can establish a solid video offering to their current customer base and attract some new customers with it, eventually SiriusXM Video could be a stand-alone product.

The video product will be part of SiriusXM All Access, which at $20.99 a month is about a $5 premium over the regular service. With a wide variety of compelling stations, a massive number of partnerships with car manufacturers, and a smart business plan, SiriusXM has become one of the most successful entertainment companies.
