Meet the Grieving Military Moms and Widows Who Say President Trump Never Called Them

1 hour ago | | See recent news »

President Trump has claimed that he alone — not Barack Obama or other past presidents — has called “virtually” all families of U.S. soldiers who have died in service since Trump took office in January.

But Gold Star families have since lashed out at Trump over his false claims about past presidents, recalling how they were comforted by Obama and former President George W. Bush as they grieved. Trump was soon forced to walk back what Obama aides called an “outrageous lie,” admitting that his predecessor “probably sometimes and maybe sometimes he didn’t. I don’t know.”

Donald Trump Claims He Has Proof He Didn't Tell Pregnant Widow of Slain Soldier 'He Knew What He Signed Up For'

14 hours ago | | See recent news »

President Donald Trump told the grieving widow of a U.S. soldier killed in an ambush two weeks ago that “he knew what he signed up for” during a short call expressing his condolences, a Democratic U.S. congresswoman says.

U.S. Rep Frederica Wilson told reporters on Tuesday that Trump called Myeshia Johnson on Tuesday and said her husband Sgt. La David T. Johnson “knew what he signed up for… but when it happens it hurts anyway.”

Trump’s 5-minute call came as Johnson was on her way to Miami International Airport – just before her husband’s body arrived from overseas, »

San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich Calls President Trump ‘Soulless Coward’

16 October 2017 6:22 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In his latest rant against Donald Trump, San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich called the president a “soulless coward” for making a false claim that Barack Obama and George W. Bush did not contact the families of U.S. soldiers killed in battle. Speaking to The Nation’s Dave Zirin, Popovich lambasted Trump for his “never-ending divisiveness” and called him a “pathological liar” who is “unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically” to be president. “This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others,” the coach continued.

12 October 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline has revealed another addition to the cast of Adam McKay’s untitled Dick Cheney film, a biopic on the U.S.’ Vice President under George W. Bush, with Tyler Perry set to portray Colin Powell, Bush’s Secretary of State.

Powell played a very important part in the decision to invade Iraq in 2003. He pushed for Bush to invade the country on intelligence that Saddam Hussein had manufactured weapons of mass destruction, but none of the weapons Powell had presented to the Un were ever found.

Christian Bale is leading the cast of the film as Dick Cheney, along with Amy Adams as Cheney’s wife Lynne, Sam Rockwell as George W. Bush and Steve Carrell as Secretary of State Donald Rumsfeld.

Update: Deadline is now reporting that Lily Rabe (American Horror Story, The Wizard of Lies) has also joined the film as Liz Cheney, Dick’s eldest daughter. »

12 October 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Barbara Bush didn’t exactly have a party girl reputation when she served as first lady from 1989 to 1993, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know how to have a little fun — especially when the mischief involves her granddaughters.

In their new book, Sisters First, out Oct. 24, former first daughters Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush, now 35, reveal that their grandmother was the one who served them their very first martinis — at the tender age of 16.

The early introduction happened while the family matriarch known affectionately as “Ganny” treated the girls to a birthday trip to Italy — and »

Liz Hannah to Write MGM’s 9/11 Air Force One Drama “Only Plane in the Sky”

Liz Hannah’s incredible breakout year just got even better. The screenwriter’s debut, “The Post,” bows December 22 and boasts Steven Spielberg as a director and stars Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. Now she’s been hired by MGM to write “Only Plane in the Sky,” a drama that takes place on Air Force One in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. Deadline broke the news.

Inspired by a Politico article by Garrett Graff, the project follows former U.S. President George W. Bush and his team as they are “whisked off from a Florida schoolroom and into Air Force One and into the sky — which was considered the safest place to be” following the terrorist attacks in New York City, the source summarizes.

MGM snagged the rights to “Only Plane in the Sky” after a competitive bidding war last year. No word on who will star, direct, or produce.

“It’s going to follow the similar structure to the article, starting in Florida in the morning and will end with him returning to D.C.,” Hannah told Deadline. “The things that get me excited and the stories I want to tell, the №1 thing that attracts me is the characters. Looking to tell a person’s story as they experience it individually. I’m from New York and grew up during 9/11, and I never ever thought I would want to write a movie about 9/11, but this kind of tore the cloth away and showed they experienced it, too, and it humanized everyone on that plane for me,” she explained. “It’s very compelling and very human. Everyone was a New Yorker that day. Everyone was an American. It wasn’t about being a Republican or a Democrat. I think that is an important story to tell right now.”

Hannah studied producing at the American Film Institute and got her start working in development at Charlize Theron’s production company. “The Post,” a drama about the Washington Post’s role in publishing the Pentagon Papers, marked her first spec deal. She was inspired to tell the story after reading former Post publisher Katharine Graham’s memoir. “I absolutely fell in love with her,” Hannah told Vulture. Hannah was shocked the spec attracted so much attention, especially since it was “a script about two people in their 50s in which no one kisses each other.” She received a call from producer and former Sony studio head Amy Pacscal, who told her that Spielberg was interested in directing.

Liz Hannah to Write MGM’s 9/11 Air Force One Drama “Only Plane in the Sky” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Trump Blames Clinton for North Korea: ‘Rocket Man Should’ve Been Handled a Long Time Ago’

22 September 2017 5:43 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If advisors were hoping Donald Trump would tone down his rhetoric about North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, they were likely disappointed tonight by the President’s appearance at a rally in Alabama Friday night. During his speech at a rally for Gop Senate candidate Luther Strange, Trump repeated his “Rocket Man” jab at Kim, and blamed former Democratic presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for rising tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. “Rocket Man should’ve been handled a long time ago by Clinton,” Trump said, adding that “I’m not gonna mention the Republicans,” apparently letting George W. Bush off the hook. »

‘Kid Nation’ Boss Reflects on ‘Controversial and Groundbreaking’ Reality Series

18 September 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When “Kid Nation” premiered on CBS 10 years ago, it was amidst a firestorm of controversy. Ever since the reality series was first picked up, critics and viewers alike were raising questions about the wisdom of putting 40 children — between the ages of 8 and 15 — in a makeshift town and having them fend for themselves without adult supervision.

Addressing the Television Critics Assn. a few months before the premiere, then-cbs entertainment president Nina Tassler took the controversy in stride, saying that in order for a reality show to “change the landscape of television, you have to stir public debate.” CBS’ goal, said Tassler, was to “do something different, and try and reach out and have people talk about the show.” And in that, they certainly succeeded. Here, executive producer Tom Forman talks with Variety about the genesis of the show, his take on the controversy, and whether he’d ever revisit the idea.
