Teen Vogue Writer Twists Knife After Taking Down Tucker Carlson
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Tucker Carlson messed with the wrong person. The Fox News host was blasted by Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca on his show Friday, after challenging her over her tweets about Ivanka Trump. It did not go well for Carlson, who ended his segment with an egregiously sexist remark after the interview devolved. Carlson started by firing shots at Duca for tweeting that Ivanka Trump has “sinister complicity in aiding the most aggressively anti-woman candidate of our time.” Duca stood by her statement and parried his attacks by calling him out for interrupting. “You’re shouting over me every time I speak. It’s incredibly unprofessional,” she said. “You’re actually being a partisan hack who’s just attacking me ad nauseam and not even allowing me to speak.” Carlson moved to personal attacks, grinning and guffawing as he pointed to Duca’s other entertainment stories in an apparent attempt to devalue her as a political pundit. He didn’t win that battle either, and cut off h ...

King revealed that her son was diagnosed with transposition of the great arteries (TGA) at just 20 weeks old, and as a result, had major heart surgery.  “Taylor does countless selfless acts that go unnoticed because she does them silently, from such a great place of unconditional giving,” King wrote in a note on the social media app. “As the Godmother of Leo Thames for his birthday she gave an incredible donation to the people that saved his life Dr. Allistar Phillips [sic] and his brilliant team.” The “Hart of Dixie” actress shared an image of the donation confirmation letter, which states Swift made the donation to support the hospita ...

Here are 13 celebrity baby girl names going in a more unisex direction. Arlo Actor-comedian-stuntman Johnny Knoxville rose to fame as part of MTV’s "Jackass" empire. He’s the father of three: daughter Madison, son Rocko Akira, and daughter Arlo Lemoyne Yoko. Let’s just say that his taste in names has gotten more and more daring as the years have gone by.
