Joe Biden Defends Himself Against Accusation of Unwanted Kiss: ‘Never Did I Believe I Acted Inappropriately’ But ‘I Will Listen’

Jonathan Ernst

On Sunday morning, former Vice President Joe Biden, who is said to be considering a third bid for the presidency, addressed an allegation that has rattled his campaign-in-waiting and overshadowed other ongoing storylines in the 2020 race to be the Democratic nominee.

“In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort,” he wrote in a statement issued by his communications team.

The latest statement comes in response to an allegation from Lucy Flores, a former member of the Nevada State Assembly and the Democratic nominee for Lieutenant Governor in 2014, who wrote in a first-person essay on Friday that Biden had kissed her on the back of her head without her consent, prior to a speech she gave at a campaign rally he attended.

Coronation Street’s Jack P Shepherd shares amazing throwback of himself in the Rovers Return as a child

CORONATION Street star Jack P Shepherd has shared an adorable throwback snap on the soap’s set as a young child.

Taking to Instagram the throwback shows Jack, now 30, as a young boy in his school uniform as he props himself up at the bar of the soap’s famous pub, the Rovers Return.

The cheeky young actor appears to be wearing his school uniform as he cheekily grins at the camera accompanied by his dad in the retro picture.

“Me in the Rovers with my dad,” he revealed.

The actor first joined the soap in 2000 when he was just 12-years-old and has been playing the role of David Platt ever since.

And feeling nostalgic, many long-time Coronation Street lovers immediately began commenting on the picture as they reminisced about when the actor first stepped onto the street.

One wrote: “Remember u being like that…loved u then…and love your character and your humour now x”

While another added: “I remember you as David walking into the Rovers, going up to the bar, peering over the top, looking at Betty Turpin and saying ‘Two comes when you’re ready Betty, love’, you were all of about 6! Never forgotten that scene, brilliant!

A third simply gushed: “Aww wee David ( jack ) xx”

Meanwhile, nineteen years later and the actor is now doing some legal boozing of his own, as he was spotted celebrating his on screen fiance, Julia Goulding’s, 34th birthday with the rest of his on screen family recently.

Jack wished Shona a happy birthday on Wednesday

On Wednesday Tina O’Brien (Sarah Platt) shared an Insta story showing the group taking a break from filming to host a boozy lunch on set for the actress, who plays Shona Ramsey.

Tina posted a selfie of them eating from takeaway trays with plastic wine glasses and a bottle of Prosecco on the table.

Although, missing from the picture was Jack who was told to “hurry up” by Tina.

Jack jokingly replied: “Just stocking the fridge”.


He then paid his own tributes to his on-screen fiance, by sharing behind-the-scenes snaps and writing: “Happy birthday, we love you.

“See you later for beer. And of course, Champagne.”

The birthday girl was also treated to a Curly the Caterpillar cake by Lucy Fallon, although the actress, who plays Bethany, admitted she’d tucked into it before it arrived at the table.

The Guy Who Dyes Kanye West’s Hair Explains Himself [Photos]

Kanye West

Kanye West has been experimenting with his hair color lately. So of course, someone tracked down the hairstylist responsible for the Skittles bag-worthy hues Yeezy has been coloring his hair.

Page Six tracked down Daniel Moon, owner of HAIR Salon, where West goes to color his non-wavy ceasar.

“This time, I was allowed to be more detailed, which made me super happy because with more time I can create a more original, multi-dimensional piece,” said Moon of Yeezy’s latest, rainbow-flavor dye job. “Making [it] look real and believable from every direction of the head can be a challenge, but we accomplished that really nicely. The energy in the room was vibrating.”

Was it now? More details on the inspiration:

Moon was inspired to create the splatter-painted style after visiting LA art fairs the weekend before, and wanting “to push the prior two styles that we had collaborated on and take them to the next level. Knowing how inspired Kanye is by color and light and artists like James Turrell helps guide the collaborations.”

It all clicked, he continued, “[once] we found that lava red, which we started using with the last time we worked together. [It] felt like a spirit color for him. When you have your spirit color it tends to ignite something inside, and that’s when the magic happens.”

“Personally, I really enjoyed the final outcome and felt like Kanye did too, so I think everybody is pretty stoked,” he added.

See some angles of West’s look below.

Kanye West Rededicates Himself To His MAGA Lifestyle, Again

In the latest episode of “Who’s Man Is This?,” Kanye West has rededicated himself to Donald Trump, or at least the Make America Great Again hat. Yeezy took to Twitter, of course, to triple down on his MAGA lifestyle

“One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black,” tweeted West on Monday, January 1.

This was the last of a series of tweets that included revealing he will appear on Joe Rogan’s podcast and once again telling Drake not to follow his wife on Instagram.

This is where we find it necessary to point out that Kanye West is 41-years-old who is likely not treating his bipolar disorder.

Oh yeah, Ye also threw in a “Trump all day” previously.

Ya Think?: Cops Say Tekashi 6ix9ine Ratted Himself Out Over Ordering Hit On Chief Keef’s Cousin

Tekashi 6ix9ine live in Oslo, Norway.

The hits keep coming with the Tekashi 6ix9ine case and this latest bit of news shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Cops believe the alleged Bloods gang member ordered a hit on Chief Keef’s cousin in New York and video of him allegedly discussing the crime attempt.

TMZ reports:

TMZ broke the story … Tekashi FaceTime’d Keef’s cousin, Tadoe, in late May and repeatedly asked for his location. The conversation went down on camera, in broad daylight, and we posted that video last week. At the end of the convo, the Brooklyn rapper clearly says, “I got a 30 pack on him right now, Blood.”

The translation, we’re told, is putting a $ 30k bounty on someone. Law enforcement sources tell us … investigators working on the June 2 attempted shooting of Chief Keef are now convinced 6ix9ine ordered the hit.

As we reported, someone opened fire on Keef while he was outside the W Hotel in Times Square. We’re told Tadoe was standing nearby at the time — and the “30 pack” video changes NYPD’s perspective on the shooting.

One law enforcement source said, “This is no coincidence. We believe the video is directly related to the crime. We believe Tekashi69 ordered the hit on Tadoe — who we now believe is the intended target.”

Charges have not been filed in the case but NYPD do have two persons of interest including one person connected to Tekashi.

The Mooch Threw Himself a Party Celebrating Trump and Their 11 Days Together

Alex Brook Lynn/The Daily Beast

It was quite the scene Monday night at Anthony Scaramucci’s Hunt & Fish Club in Times Square, where he’d invited the faithful to celebrate him and his book glorifying President Trump and his own 11—not 10!—days as White House communications director.

The guys who were there, and it was mostly guys, were the sort of guys who aren’t terrible guys or great guys and, you know, they used to be Democratic guys, or at least some of them. Queens son Andrew Cuomo might have felt at home. A lot of the bridge-and-tunnel people there, though, followed Trump, because Trump is kind of one of them.

The Scaramucci set is garish and fiercely familial and smart and somewhat anti-intellectual. Anthony even boasts in his book that there was hardly a book in his house growing up. He’s a working class Long Island kid who liked motorcycles and made a fortune. Nice suits and cigars, Yankees tickets, pretty wives, and the ability to take care of your 85-year-old mother, who, by the way, was at the party. To some extent this is the dream Trump sells.

Trump Fired James Comey and Shot Himself in the Foot

Getty

At Jeff Sessions’s urging, Trump nominated Rod Rosenstein to be deputy attorney general in early February. He was confirmed in April, just as the president’s relationship with Comey was turning toxic. The FBI director’s standing deteriorated further on May 3, when Comey vigorously defended his handling of the Clinton email investigation in an appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee. While Comey was always seen as somewhat sanctimonious, his refusal to accept the possibility that he had made a grievous mistake infuriated Democrats and vexed his new Justice Department bosses, Sessions and Rosenstein. His failure during the hearing to declare that the bureau was not investigating Trump himself, and his statement that it made him “mildly nauseous” to think that his handling of the email probe had possibly cost Clinton the race, incensed the president.

The fallout was swift. A White House official returned from a meeting with Rosenstein to inform McGahn that the deputy attorney general had been troubled by Comey’s performance and wished to discuss how to address his refusal to acknowledge—let alone correct—his errors in judgment. Trump stewed about Comey all weekend during a trip to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, and returned to Washington clutching the draft of a letter firing his FBI director—something he had begun composing numerous times only to be talked down by Priebus and others who feared that dismissing Comey would unleash a legal and political maelstrom.

On Monday, May 8, five days after Comey’s testimony, Trump summoned Pence, Priebus, McGahn, Sessions, and Rosenstein to the Oval Office. It was a Comey-bashing session in which nearly everyone—including Rosenstein—participated with enthusiasm. The president declared that he had decided to get rid of the FBI director, and mentioned the letter he’d written. It faulted Comey for his handling of the Clinton email investigation—something Trump had praised in his personal meetings with the FBI chief—and expressed his continued irritation that Comey had failed to tell the public what he had said several times in private, that Trump was not a target of the FBI probe.
