The View: Andrew Yang, Hot Topics, Summer Reading List

Andrew Yang Talks About His Campaign

Editing note: Meghan McCain is heretofore now known as Mam /me again mccain/ because I’m tired of typing her name.




[Warning: Mam is a Bitter Betty today]

Summary of convo [Spoiler (click to open)]
Mam has a friend who is part of the Yang Gang. Brings up Yang claim his mic was off during times when he wanted to interject. NBC denied. Yang says he was asked 2 questions over 2 hours, shifts to future debates. Joked about bringing a sign. Joy mentioned Marianne also felt the same. Sunny talks about his campaign products, says that people are smarter than we give them credit. Yang talks economy and the tech impact on that, which isn’t the result of immigrants. Stats about economic difficulties by industry and demographic. Joy asks if other candidates are on board, Yang feels no one is really addressing this in reality.

Talks universal basic income. He talks his dividend plan $1K per month from age 18 until death. Joy butchers the analogy of giving a fish vs teaching to fish. Yang talks trickle up economy. He has two children, one is autistic (!) they show a family photo (2nd clip). Yang talks about how he will pay for this (AMZN, AAPL, NFLX, GOOGL, FB, etc). Mam interjects, tries to talk about the deficit. She and Joy are already bickering. Yang reminds that he runs companies (that didn’t go bankrupt).

Sunny does lightning speed round. Universal healthcare = yes. Mueller set to testify, should Congress start impeachment = non answer, glad Mueller is testifying let’s hear what he says. Follow up, what would he have to say to change Yang mind = Yang still says he’d have to see what he says first, believes it’s up to Congress to determine eg their job. Reparations = diverts to his UBI platform, says reparations would be separate. Yang tries to explain more, Mam interrupts, is rude. Yang brings up Alaska model, says it would remind even wealthy folks they’re still American, it can always be donated. Immigration = he’s a son of immigrants, supports path to citizenship. Mam brings up he’s against circumcision (?) he says parents should educate themselves. Believes in free marriage counseling. Cites data re/two parent households. Mam says her marriage counseling is drinking Jack Daniels, shooting some guns, and hanging out. (Countdown to her divorce in 5-4-3…). Yang also believes in WH staff psychologist, he brings up that we need to de-stigmatize mental health issues.

Diddy is considering reviving MTV’s “Making The Band”

This morning Diddy took to social media to say that he’s considering reviving MTV’s Making The Band after the former music channel reached out to him.

“Something interesting happened this morning that I need to share with you guys,” he says. “Years ago I did something that will go down in television history. This show called Making the Band. Now, I’m trying to figure out my schedule for the next 24 months...but MTV called me out of nowhere and was like, ‘What do you think about partnering and bringing Making the Band back?’”

Diddy went on to admit that he’s hesitant about bringing back the show because it was such a classic moment for reality television. Diddy also added that he believes the intensity he displayed on the show may be too much for current up-and-coming acts to handle.

To help sway his decision, Diddy urged those who want the show back to respond to him directly via social media with the hashtag #IWantMyMTB.

Dark Phoenix Might End Up a Bigger Flop than F4ntastic

Almost 4 years to the day (in 29 days) of it's release, F4ntastic can breathe a sigh of relief in not being the biggest superhero bomb of the decade.

DARK PHOENIX, the last (? What do we consider THE NEW MUTANTS now) X-Men movie to be released under the 20th Century Fox banner, has done pretty poorly, so much in fact, that it might be a bigger loss than...Fox's other ill-fated Marvel franchise I just mentioned above.

 It's looking like DP will not make it over 250$m internationally. It's very close though, at 249.1m$, though SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME has pretty much left it for dead. To remind everyone, Fantastic 4(2015) only made 56m$ domestially & 167$m worldwide.

While the box office #s for DP were much higher than F415, so was the budget, which is undetermined, but far higher than 120m$.


Keep an eye out for my "Fantastic (Four) Through the Ages" ONTD Original regarding all these ill-fated movies. Gotta rewatch 94 and - god help me - 2015.

kip pardue found 'guilty of serious misconduct' and fined $6000 by sag

  • it’s been roughly one year since sarah scott went to the screen actors guild to report sexual harassment on set. she went to the union just days after an incident with kip pardue, her costar in an independent television pilot, in which she alleged he had forced her to touch his penis during a sex scene and later masturbated in front of her in a dressing room in may 2018.

  • filing her account with sag seemed like her best recourse. she didn’t want money from pardue, so a lawsuit seemed costly and time-consuming. and though she filed a police report about the may 2018 incident, she told the authorities she wasn’t interested in pressing charges. instead, she wanted to focus on the union — the closest thing scott felt there was to human resources in hollywood — and, in hopes of making change within the industry, have it weigh in on what she said happened.

  • following a private hearing in front of the union’s disciplinary committee on march 20th, the union ruled that pardue was “guilty of serious misconduct in violation” of the sag-aftra constitution. in the notice of the decision, which was addressed to pardue but copied to scott, told the actor the sag committee “censures and admonishes you for this inappropriate and unprofessional conduct.” as a result of his behavior, which the union said was “inconsistent” with its code of conduct on sexual harassment, pardue was fined $6,000. however, the union said, if he took an online workplace sexual harassment training module within 90 days, he would pay sag $3,000. (the fine will be deposited into the union’s general treasury.)

      so he was found guilty of engaging in the same behavior as several high profile men before him, which was widely reported and still regularly referenced--and he chose not to take the online sexual harassment training course, apparently, since his fine was $6000 instead of $3000. i just...

      Sarah Jessica Parker says one of her male co-stars acted ‘inappropriately’

      Sarah Jessica Parker is opening up about a bad experience on set with a male co-star.
      She recalled wanting to leave a job early because a colleague “was behaving, not only inappropriately, but perhaps even I would say, they weren’t living up to contractual obligations as well.”
      Parker didn’t name the project or the actor, only calling him a “very big movie star.”
      She didn’t feel comfortable enough to speak up on set at the time.
      Ultimately, Parker decided to go to her agent and express her discomfort.
      After seeking help, Parker said, the environment improved but it wasn’t “perfectly pleasant.”
