At last! I’ve located the 60 Minutes interview featuring that Nate Dykeman interview. Among other goodies; :)
1:12 sharper senior photos of Eric posed by the bench 30:04 - Brooks Brown, Randy and Judy Brown interviews 35:51 - two more clearer Eric senior photo 34:02 - Nate Dykeman interview (yes that one!) 34:44 - Devon Adams interview - reported Eric to the school; clearly no love.
I found this 60 minutes to be pretty interesting thorough show. They really pursue and demonstrate to us how unquestionably poor Jeffco police/SWAT handled Columbine. Lives were lost due to their lack of action. They justify it as following the protocol they had in place which is basically a passive ‘wait and see’ response but no adequate excuses can be given to justify the lives that were lost because of their lack of flexibility in an emergency situation. Their fuck up cost their own children’s lives. Some of those cops had children in that school too! The poor parents, two years in and filled with grief, still do not understand how police could’ve stayed outside waiting hours to get the green light to go into the school and do their job. Even then, the cops went in on the far/east side of the school (where none of the action occurred) and slowly combed through. Such a waste of time and resources. Today, Eric and Dylan would not at all have had the upper hand they were given by the authorities back in ‘99. It’s amazing when you think of E and D walking around lazily in the cafeteria trying to get the bombs to explode when they could clearly see the cops surrounding the school from the cafeteria windows. They must have continually wondered why in the back of their minds that no confrontation was happening. They were ruling the roost for far longer than any school shooter today would be allowed to.
“I think generally, I just cannot really envision life without writing,
and producing records and singing. I think, in short, it’s
as cornball as that. You know? It really is what I do. And I’m so glad I
chose that to be my profession. It’s been just terrific.”
Written by Linda Sharp, one of the most talented journalists in the country. The sad thing is that those in greatest need of reading this article would quit midway through the first paragraph.
What Will It Take?
So, you voted for Trump.
You cheered his rhetoric of hate and phobias.
You proudly wore your “Fuck Your Feelings” t-shirts to his rallies.
You cried out “Lock her up!” at his events - not caring to comprehend that there is nothing to “lock her up” for. Hell, as recently as last night in Tennessee, you were still chanting that ridiculous mantra as he held another “Make Me Feel Great Again” rally.
You LOVED his blanket condemnations of Islam.
You grabbed your sac every time he hollered how Mexico would pay for his wall.
You death gripped your whiteness, so fearful of becoming the minority and having the treatment tables turned on you.
You happily lapped up every impossible promise he made.
You fact checked nothing. And you voted for him.
A man-baby so insecure with himself that he championed his own penis in a debate. A self-confessed womanizer, cheater, molester, and piece of excrement who has never had any use for religion was embraced by churchgoers because he said words like “abortion” and let people pray over him. A thin-skinned schoolyard bully who tweets as often and as foully as he farts his KFC emissions.
You voted for him despite the hordes of white supremacists who lauded him. You proudly stood shoulder to shoulder with them at his campaign stops. You joined in the mob mentality he meant to elicit each time he pointed to the penned in group of reporters and endangered their very lives.
You voted with your hate, with your ignorance, with your misogyny, with your fears, with your phobias, with your delusions.
You voted for his pledges to “drain the swamp.”
You spent 8 years hating on President Obama for every breath he dared to take, grabbing at every salacious made up story, ridiculing his time spent with his family, spent golfing, hell, you ridiculed his family as well. A family that never had a breath of scandal; a family that is affectionate, intelligent, close. A President who projected intellect, probity, empathy, sympathy; a President who was largely respected around the world.
When the election came around, you were more than happy to transfer your bullshit onto Hillary Clinton, believing all manner of made-up garbage, including that she runs a child rape ring from the basement of a pizza parlor.
Seriously, how fucking dense are you people?
Rhetorical question. No answer needed.
So, you voted for him. For that whole Make America Great Again emptiness, but then bumper sticker thinking tends to win the day in your crowd. Sorry, Trumper sticker thinking.
He has now been in office for just shy of two months. What will it take to make you finally wake up and see what you have let loose?
His great plan to defeat ISIS in 30 days? Where is it? Again, rhetorical question - it exists only between his ears and as expressed hot air when he rambles out loud.
He emboldened all the dullards who see only color, and who feel it is now their right to physically strike out at anyone who is not white - ripping off hijabs, punching people on subways, shooting them dead in bars - all accompanied by the words “Get out of my country!”
He hates Muslims so much (like you) that he has now tried twice to institute travel bans - except countries where he has financial interests, actual terrorists from those countries be damned - those Mu$lim$ are okey dokey? How do you reconcile that?
You gleefully supported over 33 hearings on Benghazi, not caring one whit how your tax dollars were being squandered on a witch hunt in which your own party could find no wrongdoing on Hillary’s part. Yet Trump orders an ill-conceived, bravado-laden raid over dinner resulting in women, children, and a Navy SEAL being killed, and you look away.
Seriously, the mental gymnastics you must be doing to be cool with that are worthy of a Simone Biles gold.
He promised you the “greatest health care” while stumping, and has now made it clear that what he supports is tens of millions being throw off their insurance, premium increases that will bankrupt your parents, and millions in tax cuts for his rich friends. Good luck when little Johnny needs asthma meds or you get ass cancer. Or you change jobs and your wife with diabetes can no longer get insured because of that pesky pre-existing condition of hers. Oh, and you are aware that her simply being a woman will be a pre-existing condition, correct? Perhaps you should have done your research and actually comprehended that the Affordable Care Act and the FOX slurred Obamacare are the same thing.
Maybe when enough of you start to die… will that be enough?
You derided Obama as elite for his impressive education, called him a celebrity because of his crowds. Then you elected a petulant, spoiled brat from Wharton, who was a reality TV star.
Does your hypocrisy chafe at all?
Trump assured you time and again that Mexico would pay for that big beautiful border wall. Mexico told him to fuck off time and time again. And now, today comes the confirmation in his own budget proposal sent to Congress that YOU will be paying the billions for a wall that will be meaningless.
Is that enough? What, no umbrage? No outrage?
You embraced his every childish taunt, his every 3 am Twitter rampage during the campaign, thinking them hilarious, brave, profound - how about now that he should be governing yet is more distracted by wars with Nordstrom and Snoop Dogg?
He making you proud by acting like a 12-year-old boy with his first cell phone?
That whole swamp draining thing? Um, he is surrounded by white nationalists, climate deniers, liars, and fellow million/billionaires. He loudly derided Hillary for giving a speech at Goldman Sachs - you booed and hissed and wanted her head - he has surrounded himself with former Goldman Sachs employees.
“Her emails! Her server! Security!!!!!” <—-There’s a popular one from the campaign trail. Yet you are as quiet as a ward of coma patients as his administration uses private email servers, he openly conducts the business of national security over dinner at his “winter White House,” invites Mar-a-Lago members to sit in on cabinet interviews, and he continues to use an unsecured Android phone.
Vacations? Golfing? Pfffft. “There’s just so much to be done,” Trump told CBS’ 60 Minutes in an interview broadcast Nov. 13, 2016. “So I don’t think we’ll be very big on vacations, no.” Melissa McCarthy (ahem, Sean Spicer), his sartorially challenged mouthpiece, told FOX “He will never take a vacation… he can’t sit still. He’s so eager to get things done and change things up – there is never an idle moment and so there is not going to be the word vacation will not exist in a Trump administration.”
He leaves tomorrow for the FIFTH weekend trip to Mar-a-Lago, where he most certainly fills his idle time with round after round of golf. He has played NINE times since taking office.
What, is golfing suddenly cool? Ok with all of you who derided every stroke Obama took? And the costs you all shit yourselves blind over in terms of “vacations” when Obama was in office? All these $3 million trips to Florida hunky dory with you? West Palm Beach is starting to realize what a bankrupting grifter he is as his repeated trips are threatening the very existence of many businesses: “We’re going broke.” $1.7 million dollars in taxpayer money that has gone from the WPB coffers to his security? The White House refuses to even acknowledge the requests to be reimbursed.
Melania living in Manhattan and costing you (all of us) just shy of a million a day? Look, I am fine with their choice to let Barron finish the school year there. My own family has made that choice, hell, we are LIVING that choice, and have been for over 9 years. BUT WE ARE PAYING THE COSTS OF OUR CHOICE.
Of course, it’s ok with you. You’d rather eat from a buffet of Trump’s rectal remnants than admit, perhaps, that you got conned by a man who literally earned the moniker Don The Con DECADES ago. You got played by a reprobate who has made a very public display of constantly and consistently cheating, lying, ripping off, and threatening people all his life. The Art of the Deal? Sorry, the only art here is the art form to which he raised carnival barking.
So what will it take? THAT is a serious question.
Will you have to see your own grandparents starve to death as Meals On Wheels evaporates? Will Putin have to be caught with his tongue in Trump’s mouth and his hand down his trousers for you to stop with the “fake news” bullshit? Sorry, but just because news doesn’t make your head feel good or your pee pee hard does not make it fake. Will your child have to die in front of you because your healthcare disintegrated? Well, you can take heart in all those new weapons of death he has promised for the military.
What will it take for you to finally admit that you were lied to, vote grifted, used?
I suspect for most of you will take a target finally being squarely placed on your back.
Whether it is healthcare, bankruptcy, your coal jobs NOT coming back, your deployed spouse or child being blown to bits in a war of distraction and bravado, or finally being labeled a “loser” by Trump for being poor - it will happen.
You cheered as he targeted Muslims. Because you aren’t one. You applauded as he targeted the LGBT. Because you aren’t one. You proudly wore your MAGA hats as he targeted Mexicans. Because you aren’t one. You laughed as he constantly went after minorities (pssst, brown people). Because you are not one. You clapped like a deranged seal as he repeatedly took aim at Black Lives Matter supporters. Because you are not one. You blew off his obvious ridiculing of a disabled reporter. Because you are not disabled.
Your target is coming. It is inevitable. You will need something at some point - we all do - assistance, insurance, school lunches for your children when you lose your job, food stamps, housing aid, an emergency operation, and on and on. And when you do, you will be a loser, a taker, a welfare cheat. Too bad you can’t eat boot straps.
Some of you are slowly opening your eyes - comment sections now contain those who confess to making a mistake with their vote, TrumpRegrets collects all the staunch supporters who have finally realized they have been chewing on bullshit, not red meat, thrown to them by this fraud. Investigations into his lies and connections (and those of the cadre of villains around him) are ongoing and more is gleaned every day.
His house of cards is coming down. Alternative facts, fake news, Tweets meant to distract, all of it, will eventually give way to cold, hard facts that reveal how vile, corrupt, compromised, and naked is this emperor. Sadly, however, the damage has been done.
And you own it. All 62 million who looked the other way at every horrific statement, heinous promise, and pledge to hurt other people. You did this to our nation because, like Trump, you cared more about winning than you do about your neighbors, this country.
What will it take? Pain.
It’s coming Trumpers. But when you are crying, in need, damaged, bereft don’t expect the majority that tried to keep this from happening to feel sorry for you.
Larries are like see he denied hobama see he can deny things...I guess that 2012 (?)interview where they other denied larry saying they genuinely believe where in a relationship but we're not.. means nothing to them..
except………….he didnt….deny…..hobama lol
he did, however, deny larry in the 60 minutes interview in Australia 2013.
The process of watching my aggressively white republican 58 year old mother slowly become obsessed with Hamilton has been the most entertaining thing I’ve ever witnessed omfg because starting from when I got obsessed with it to last night she,
Originally thought it was just a modern, musical retelling of Hamlet
Got super confused over who the hell Alexander Hamilton even was (“Mom, you’ve worked in banking for over 40 years!”)
Became massively offended that Ben Franklin does not appear in the show
Did not understand the concept/importance behind the non-white cast and refused to listen to my explanations or read articles I sent her because they were “too long to hold her interest” (“Your five minute attention span is everything wrong with the human race.”)
Started just rolling her eyes every single time I mentioned it and speaking to me in that whole ‘that’s nice, dear’ not listening tone. (“Molly, it’s just a silly show, it can’t be that big of a deal.”)
Started getting annoyed when she was around my friends and we’d talk about it
Was just downright confused when I had a New Years party/sleepover and everyone kept singing songs from it
(“Who actually likes rap music anyway? It’s dumb.”) (“Mother, You haven’t listen to it.”)
Turned on the daily news just in time to discover Leslie Odom Jr. is from Philly like we are, decided to become lowkey obsessed with him. She does this weird thing where she makes it her goal to know every actor from Philly or the surrounding suburbs
But then, refused to listen to any of his songs from Hamilton, instead decided to focus on the fact he played Paul in the obc of Rent
Kept talking about Leslie???? Still would not listen to the show. I grew weary
After a few weeks, she appeared to forget her weird Philly obsession with Leslie, resumed the eye rolling every time she heard the word Hamilton
One time I was watching the History channel (as I’ve grown up doing) and they were having a marathon about the Founding Fathers. My mom walked into the room the exact second they started mentioning the Hamilton/Burr duel, proceeded to lowkey make fun of me for being too obsessed with the musical, apparently forgot about the past two decades of me already being a history loving nerd
Later that day, I caught her watching the history channel just as they were talking about Alexander Hamilton. She claimed she had started watching because they mentioned Ben Franklin and was just about to change the channel. That night over dinner, she started spouting random facts about Ham that she had learned from the program
Started saying when we go to NYC in April, we have to win the lottery- not because she wanted to see the show, but because she wanted to see me see the show
She saw Lin on a talk show and found him utterly delightful
I took the opening and sent her a bunch of youtube videos of Lin. She quickly became obsessed.
You don’t understand. I’ve never seen this woman fangirl so hard like she does with Lin.
Started off claiming she was a fan because she “just likes Latin men”, but quickly started talking about how he just seemed so nice/funny/talented/smart/etc
Found out he wrote In The Heights, which we couldn’t afford to see when it came to our area a couple years ago, but she had really wanted to see because it was getting such good reviews
Kept mentioning our upcoming New York trip, saying how we absolutely need to win the lottery (“I don’t want to really want to see the show, but I want to see him. I’m a fan of the Lin guy”)
I made her watch the Grammy performance. She legitimately burst into tears during it and tried to deny the fact she was crying even though she went through half a pack of tissues
(“This doesn’t mean I like the show, Molly! It was just very good and the pause he took for applause at the beginning really got to me!”)
Went to a family party, and her sister, my aunt Kathy, randomly started talking about how much she wanted to see the show. Listen to me, guys. Kathy is possibly the most boring person on the face of the planet. She can have an 'exciting’ conversation about buying packs of applesauce to eat with her pork and doesn’t realize no one cares. So her wanting to see Hamilton caught my mom off guard.
Apparently, she had seen the 60 minutes interview online, and thought “the guy was so charming and it looks so good”. ( @linmanuel , apparently you have a way with seducing 50/60+ year old suburban moms. Congrats?)
My mom stopped complaining if she heard me blasting the album, but still made no mention of wanting to listen to it.
Freaks out every time James Corden mentions Hamilton on the Late Late Show, aggressively wants him to do a Carpool Karaoke with Lin (which I agree would be RAD AS HELL)
Kept talking about how amazing Lin is every single chance she got. If she met someone who hadn’t heard of him or the show, she made sure they learned everything.
(“Okay, Molly, we’re getting closer to the New York trip. The key here is to VISUALIZE. If we can VISUALIZE ourselves winning the Ham4Ham lottery, we WILL win. Stop rolling your eyes! You need to take this seriously!”)
Started getting really mad at me because she’s all happy-go-lucky-dreamer thinking we’re actually going to win the lottery and I’m standing there like “Mom they pick like 20 people out of thousands. Have you seen our luck? We’re not gonna win.”
Honestly she’s so pissed at me for thinking logically about this omfg
Has begun liking every single thing Lin posts on facebook. But the thing is, most of his fb posts just link to his twitter, and twitter is blocked on her work computer, so this woman is just liking everything he posts with absolutely no context.
Yesterday, she watched that live Q&A Chris Jackson did at the White House. Sent me a facebook message saying “I’m not entirely sure who he is, but I support him”. I responded by sending her that Ham4Ham video of him singing with Elmo, to which she responded “OMG I REALLY SUPPORT HIM”
Finally figured out that it’s called Ham4Ham because they sell the tickets for 10 dollars and that’s the bill that Hamilton is on, thought it was the most clever thing in the world
Last night I could literally hear her listening to all the White House performance videos she could find, didn’t say anything
She walked downstairs at like eleven pm, saw me on the couch, loudly sighed in defeat, and whispered “I need to see this fucking show”
Spent an hour talking about how amazing it looks and how talented everyone was and how much she needs to see the damn show.
Dedicated 15 minutes of the hour to talk about how adorable she thinks Daveed Diggs is. She didn’t know Daveed’s name so she just kept calling him “The Tall One”
(“Lin was free styling!!!! With Obama holding the words!!!! It was so cool!!!!!”)
(“I didn’t listen to all of the songs they did because I want to experience it live, you know?”) (“Mom, you should just listen to the songs. Better chances than with the lottery.”) (“MOLLY!!!!”)
There was a whole part where she was like“Why is room where it happens such a good song???? I don’t understand??? Why are Hamilton and Jefferson even fighting???” and I was like “Do you know anything about Thomas Jefferson?” and she said“Well it’s good music but they need to chill”
My mother used the word chill end me
“But Lin and that Tall Guy are just so adorable and everyone was amazing!”
She literally just called me from her work as I’m typing this because she had to give someone a bunch of ten dollar bills and it 'feels different what the hell’
So yeah my mom is now absolute Hamilton Trash and it’s amazing and hysterical God Bless America
A Reminder From Oprah to Celebrate ‘Mothers of All Varieties’ This Mother’s Day
Oprah Winfrey, pictured on the red carpet on April 18, gave us an important reminder this Mother’s Day. (Photo: Getty Images)
Oprah Winfrey has said she “wouldn’t have been a good mom for babies,” but she has big love for her fur babies — and apparently the dogs of strangers. The media mogul had her driver pull over on Friday so she could talk to an elderly woman pushing her pups around New York City in a stroller.
Lady O, who recently started her gig on 60 Minutes, was in full interview mode to chat up a woman named Jill who was walking near Central Park. “Rarely do I ask other people for a pic but this was too cute to pass by,” Oprah, 63, captioned the photo of her with the casually dressed woman.
Oprah stopped this woman named Jill on the street in NYC today:
A post shared by Oprah (@oprah) on May 12, 2017 at 8:25am PDT
In the video, Oprah is heard telling Jill, “I jumped out of my car because I saw you pushing this cart.” Then she has the woman introduce her to her three dogs, white balls of fluff, who were 11, 8, and 3 years old. “It’s the cutest I’ve ever seen in their little cart,” O gushed.
Jill was pretty funny, telling Oprah they were headed to the library because the dogs “love to read.” An amused Oprah replied, “Only in New York.” (New Yorkers of course aren’t the only ones to push their dogs in strollers, but you do see it on the regular.)
A post shared by Oprah (@oprah) on May 12, 2017 at 8:04am PDT
Oprah posed for a photo with Jill on the street and wrote, “Jill and her fur children. #Happy Mothers day to Mothers of all varieties of children!”
What a good message as we head into the weekend of celebrating moms — and to have Oprah as the one to deliver it. After all, in a recent interview with Good Housekeeping U.K., O — who, at 14 had a child who died shortly after birth — talked motherhood, saying, “I didn’t want babies. I wouldn’t have been a good mom for babies. I don’t have the patience. I have the patience for puppies, but that’s a quick stage!”
So I decided to be a bit thorough here and essentially compiled a list of every split interview/appearance done by the boys since (and excluding) the X Factor tv show. I’ve divided it into pairings and ot3s and tallied them up at the end to get an idea of just how much Louis and Harry aren’t being grouped together. Ever. Fun times… let’s do this.
Since becoming president-elect, Trump has spoken with foreign leaders via unsecured lines; had an official meeting with Japan PM discussing high level diplomatic issues with Ivanka and her husband also present, who doesn’t and shouldn’t have security clearance; Trump has filed to pushed back his Trump University court case; filed to lower taxes for his D.C. Hotel; conducts official government business in Trump Tower; has not released his taxes as promised; Ivanka advertising her jewelry she wore during the Trumps’ 60 minute interview; Trump’s adult children part of his transition team (illegal); and Steve Bannon was illegally paid by an outside super PAC for his services as Trump’s campaign CEO.
The list goes on and on…let Congress and Trump know this is unacceptable and must be investigated/stopped/corrected immediately!
The 60 minutes interview with Justin Trudeau aired this Sunday. They used this photo above, and misidentified Kim Cattrall as being Margaret Trudeau, saying that Justin Trudeau’s mother was the women pictured (i.e. Kim Cattrall). Pierre Elliot Trudeau also dated Kim Cattrall for a time.
If she avoids all the assholes they have made fun of her or been mean to her like Grimshaw, they will be even more thirsty. Not nice, but I'd like her to make them pay their stupidity. If she isn't seen on their show that would be a great hint. No need to be nice and polite anymore with morons.
She’s at the point in her career where she can actually pick and choose (or in some cases INSIST, if needed) which events and interviews she wants to do.
If I were her, I’d skip Grimmy and request for Greg/Fearne for a special “60 Minutes” like interview, where its not attached to any specific BBC division.
