“Oh f***": Donald Trump caught in awkward blunder

<p>President Donald Trump was caught on a hot mic fretting over an ink stain on his suit shirt just moments before his Oval Office address on the coronavirus pandemic Wednesday night.<span> </span><br /><br />“Oh f***…uh oh, I got a pen mark,” he was heard saying.<span> </span><br />“Anybody, anybody have any white stuff?”</p> <p>The president made another unscripted comment after the speech - seeming to be completely unaware that a C-SPAN camera was still streaming.</p> <p>Trump finished his remarks and waited silently until a voice off-camera said: “We're clear.”<br /><br />He let out an exaggerated exhale and said: “Okayyy!” as a man stepped into the frame and removed the microphone from inside his blazer.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"> <p dir="ltr">C-span camera still on.

Bill Clinton reveals why he had an affair with Monica Lewinsky

<p>Bill Clinton claims that his affair with Monica Lewinsky was one of the “things I did to manage my anxieties”.</p> <p>In a tell-all documentary, the former President revealed that the reason behind his affair with the ex-White House intern while he was in office was because it helped him with issues he was dealing with at the time.</p> <p>Bill said that at the time he met Lewinsky, the pressure of the job made him feel like a boxer who had done 30 rounds and he looked at Lewinsky as “something that will take your mind off it for a little while”.</p> <p>He makes the claims in an interview featured in the new documentary series about his wife Hillary Clinton, called<em><span> </span>Hillary</em>, where the former First Lady and Secretary of State candidly reveals that in the aftermath of the scandal the couple underwent “painful” marriage counselling.</p> <p>Bill apologised to Lewinsky in the documentary that is set to premiere on Friday and says he felt “terrible” that her life was defined by the affair.</p> <p>But he said that at some point when things don’t return to normal "you’ve got to decide how to define normal", suggesting the former intern should just move on.</p> <p>The scandal resulted in Bill being impeached in 1998. But he survived the trial in the Senate and remained in office during his second term.</p> <p>His hand was forced in 1998 when it became clear that he had lied to a grand jury which was investigating his personal affairs by denying the affair.</p> <p>Bill had also lied to Hillary, and she believed him.</p> <p>He said in the interview: “I went and sat on the bed and talked to her. I told her exactly what happened, when it happened. I said I feel terrible about it. We’ve been through quite a bit in the last few years. I said I have no defence, it’s inexcusable what I did”.</p> <p>Hillary told the cameras: “I was just devastated. I could not believe it. I was so personally just hurt and I can’t believe this, I can’t believe you lied.”</p> <p>Hillary then told her husband that he was the one who had to come clean to their daughter Chelsea, who was 18 at the time. He said it was worse than telling his wife and he said that doing so was “awful”.</p>

Oprah Winfrey tumbles while preaching about balance

<p>Media mogul Oprah Winfrey took a fall during her most recent Oprah’s 2020 VIsion: Your Life on Focus tour.</p> <p>She was holding her second-last event at The Forum in Los Angeles and fell to the floor while talking about wellness and balance.</p> <p>"Wellness to me means all things in balance, and balance doesn’t mean all things are equal or at peace at all times," she says in a video captured and posted on Twitter, before she takes a step and falls to the ground. </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"> <p dir="ltr">Oprah took a tumble today during a speaking tour in Los Angeles.

"I just thought 'Okay I fell, everybody knows what falling is.' You would prefer not to fall, but now I've fallen."</p> <p>"I thought this was a great day in spite of the fall, which now becomes a meme, I know," she said in a later video. </p> <p>"But I picked myself up I don't know if it was something on the floor or my foot twisted or what. I had the indication I was gonna fall before, and then it is what it is, it was a great, great day."</p> <p>Luckily, the event went on without a hitch with singer Jennifer Lopez attending as her special guest.</p> <p>The nine-stop tour has featured other special guests, including Lady Gaga, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Michelle Obama.</p> <p>"How do you take this energy of inspiration and people feeling triumphant in their lives? How do you use that to something that's a greater good than just my front porch?" she asked. "And that's how this idea came about. I'll try to spread that word around the country."</p> <p>"The hardest thing I've ever done is to ask all of these people to come on tour," she said, adding that she was glad they all accepted her invitation. </p>

Roger Federer responds to Greta Thunberg criticism: “I am misused”

<p>Tennis veteran Roger Federer has responded mounting scrutiny regarding his controversial partnership with Swiss bank Credit Suisse after he was criticised by Greta Thunberg last month.</p> <p>In January, a group of climate activists raided a Credit Suisse office in Switzerland to protest against the bank's investments in fossil fuels.</p> <p>The dozen of activists began to play tennis in a stiff call-out to Federer as they urged him to cut ties with the institution which they claim has provided over $85 billion to companies searching for new fossil fuel deposits.</p> <p>Brandishing banners read: "Credit Suisse is destroying the planet. Roger, do you support them?"</p> <p>Thunberg would soon retweet the initial post from 350.org, asking Federer to "wake up now".</p> <p>That gave birth to the hashtag #RogerWakeUpNow which was quick to begin trending on Twitter.</p> <p>Prior to the Australian Open the 38-year-old had touched on the incident claiming that he was open to "innovative solutions" to climate change and discussing "important issues" with Credit Suisse.</p> <p>"I take the impacts and threat of climate change very seriously, particularly as my family and I arrive in Australia amid devastation from the bush fire," Federer said in a statement to<span> </span>Reuters.</p> <p>But before his charity exhibition match against Rafael Nadal in South Africa over the weekend, the Swiss Maestro doubled own on his stance, and argued his persona was being leveraged.</p> <p>However before he began his charity exhibition match against Rafael Nadal in South Africa over the weekend, he argued his personal was being leveraged.</p> <p>"I am sometimes misused for certain purposes," Federer told Swiss publication<span> </span>Tages Anzeiger.</p> <p>"When I help one person, I am criticised for not doing it with others. I have reached a point where I have to think carefully about what I am doing.</p> <p>"But I also have to be able to overlook criticism. I can't be everywhere, I can't do everything. I am also a father and tennis player.</p> <p>"I am aware that I can make a difference, take the microphone and address certain things. But I can't do that all the time.</p> <p>"It is important that you choose the right things at the right time and get your message across in a fair way. Not by attacking others.</p> <p>"I know I can make a difference with my popularity. For others, for the planet, for the animals. And I think it's good what has recently been raised about collective consciousness."</p> <p>Federer’s charity initiative at Cape Town Stadium was to raise money for the <em>Roger Federer Foundation.</em></p> <p>His organisation supports early childhood education in six African countries.</p> <p>The foundation was hoping to top $US1 million from the exhibition. It raised a whopping $US3.5 million.</p>

“She lives a teenage life like no other”: Greta Thunberg to get her own TV series

<p>BBC Studios has announced a new documentary series about Greta Thunberg, following the 17-year-old’s “international crusade” with environmental campaigning.</p> <p>The new show will see Thunberg meet with scientists, politicians and businesspeople to explore the evidence around climate change. It also promises to share her “journey into adulthood” and some “quiet moments” as she prepares her speeches and “lives a teenage life like no other”.</p> <p>“Climate change is probably the most important issue of our lives so it feels timely to make an authoritative series that explores the facts and science behind this complex subject,” executive producer Rob Liddell said in a statement Monday.</p> <p>“To be able to do this with Greta is an extraordinary privilege, getting an inside view on what it’s like being a global icon and one of the most famous faces on the planet.”</p> <p>The title and number of episodes are yet to be determined.</p> <p>Thunberg is also the subject of a Hulu documentary airing this year,<span> </span><a rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://deadline.com/2020/02/bbc-studios-series-greta-thunberg-1202856214/" target="_blank"><em>Deadline</em></a><span> </span>reported.</p> <p>Thunberg came into prominence after she began organising school climate strikes in 2018.

Fiery debate erupts over news reporters’ risqué outfit choice

<p>A fiery debate has erupted over a Belgian journalist and a former pro cyclist, when he made a crude comment towards a young female reporter’s clothing choice while covering the Vuelta a San Juan in Argentina.</p> <p>Former pro cyclist Sven Spoormakers referred to the reporter’s low-cut top after taking a screenshot of her interviewing one of the riders for television, asking in Dutch: “Is it cool in Argentina?”</p> <p><img style="width: 500px; height: 281.4992025518341px;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7834244/firestorm-over-clothing-1.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/ab48e546884b4172810c54d2768d4cef" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em>The young female reporter was working on the Vuelta a San Juan in Argentina.</em></p> <p>The response was bitter and fiery after numerous fans and pundits condemned him for allegedly sexually objectifying the young reporter.</p> <p>Australian journalist Sophie Smith criticised Spoormakers on his remark, writing: “Seriously? Please tell me this is lost in translation and you did not just publicly objectify a young female reporter.</p> <p>“Speaking from experience, let me say she does the exact same job as you but has to work and withstand twice as much still because of bulls*** like this.”</p> <p>Spoormakers refused to back down from his controversial statement, however and shot back a fiery response:  “Objectify, really? Come on. Don’t draw the feminist card on this one. She knows exactly what she’s wearing – or not wearing – and why.</p> <p>“If I would interview a female athlete with my balls out, you’d be joking about it too. Or calling it a disgrace.”</p> <p>Smith then incredulously hit back: “So it’s her fault because you can’t stop looking at her boobs?</p> <p><em><img style="width: 0px; height: 0px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7834246/sven-spoormakers.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/34fbcdb2baf04d798507de56f5fc2288" /><br /></em></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em>Sven Spoormakers competing in the Amstel Curacao Race 2010.</em></p> <p>“What’s she meant to do, wear a potato sack so you don’t get excited?</p> <p>“If I take a picture of you at work, post it and comment on how small your d**k looks in a pair of shorts would you be all right with that?”</p> <p>British reporter Ned Boulting added his opinion to the conversation to lend his support, quoting one of Smith’s tweets and writing: “Over and over and over again, my female colleagues have to defend themselves from institutional disrespect.</p> <p>“I take your voice, Sophie, and I add mine.”</p> <p>Spoormakers’ tweets were also taken by upset fans, with one writing: “Mate, she’s wearing a top. That’s it. What’s the problem? Jesus Christ you’re a dinosaur.”</p> <p>Another added: “She isn’t exposed in any way Sven. You commented inappropriately as if her body is available for you to simply discuss. That’s objectifying her. Not cool.”</p> <p>While another person on social media added: “Absolutely frustrating. @SvenSpoormakers your comment is inappropriate.</p> <p>“We are more than the clothes we wear. If you can’t understand why your comment is inappropriate I suggest getting some training around sexism.”</p>

Ellen DeGeneres to interview Duchess Meghan?

<p>Ellen DeGeneres has said she’s “excited” to interview Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, seemingly confirming the first interview with the royal after her and Prince Harry’s exit from the royal family.</p> <p>Since stepping down, there has been speculation about a potential “tell-all” interview, with experts weighing in on who the couple may speak to.</p> <p>Some are guessing that the couple would choose Meghan’s friend, Gayle King, to discuss their exit, others believe that Oprah Winfrey may be the one to interview the pair.</p> <p>There was also whispers circulating that Harry and Meghan would sit down with DeGeneres for their first major interview since leaving “the firm”. And now, the talk show host may have confirmed the rumours.</p> <p>Asked on camera on Friday if she was keen to do a tell-all interview with Meghan, the 62-year-old responded: “Sure, I’m excited”.</p> <p>She was out and about in a Los Angeles neighbourhood at the time and was on a lengthy phone call, so it’s unclear how serious her response was.</p> <p>But behind the scenes, plans are reportedly already in place to set up the tell-all royal interview.</p> <p>“Ellen and Meghan have already discussed a sit-down interview. That has been in the works for quite some time now,” a source at the Ellen Show told the Daily Mail.</p> <p>Meghan and DeGeneres have met in the past at a dog shelter in LA a few years ago. The host has also defended the couple in the past, so it’s possible the Duchess would feel safe as she recounts her side of the story to someone she considers a friend.</p> <p>“I see them getting attacked and it’s not fair,” said DeGeneres a little after Archie’s birth.</p> <p>“They are two of the most down-to-earth, compassionate people, they’re doing so much good for the world.”</p> <p>The Sussexes have been extremely quiet since their departure from the royal family, as fans wonder when and if they plan to speak publicly about their decision.</p>

The “biggest regret” of Queen Elizabeth’s reign

<p>While the third season of <em>The Crown</em> only dropped recently, there is one particular event that has appeared to have haunted Queen Elizabeth all the years later, that has dominated conversation among viewers. </p> <p>The Netflix royal drama has touched on the Aberfan disaster of 1966, which tragically saw the death of 116 children and 28 adults in a South Wales mining village. </p> <p>After weeks of intense, heavy rain, a mountain of mining waste (a colliery spoil tip) liquified and collapsed on the morning of October 21. </p> <p>The horrifying black sludge slid downhill into the village, where it engulfed the junior school and a number of houses. </p> <p>The impact was devastating and resulted in people being buried beneath the rubble. </p> <p>Only 28 students at Pantglas Junior school that morning survived the landslide. </p> <p>The Crown not only touched on the impact of the 1966 tragedy on the United Kingdom, but also the Queen’s actions in the aftermath. </p> <p>When the royal was informed of the Aberfan disaster, she issued a message of support and sympathy to the victims instantly.</p> <p>However, there was one decision that she made which came under a lot of scrutiny by the media, and it was sending Prince Philip to visit the town in her place. </p> <p>In fact, she did not visit the Welsh village until eight days after tragedy struck, a delay which is believed to be Her Majesty’s greatest regret of her reign. </p> <p>The show suggested the Queen, portrayed by Olivia Coleman, was hesitant to visit straight away as she believed her presence would have been an unwelcome distraction during the recovery process. </p> <p>No matter the reason, the royal’s decision to delay her visit was criticised heavily by the press. </p> <p>When she did visit Aberfan, the Queen surveyed the horrific damage and met with the victim’s grieving families. </p> <p>"Aberfan affected the Queen very deeply, I think, when she went there," former royal press officer staffer Sir William Heseltine said in the documentary <em>Elizabeth: Our Queen</em>.</p> <p>“It was one of the few occasions in which she shed tears in public. I think she felt in hindsight that she might have gone there a little earlier.</p> <p>"It was a sort of lesson for us that you need to show sympathy and to be there on the spot, which I think people craved from her."  </p> <p>The Queen has returned to the Welsh village in the years since three times. </p> <p>On the 50th anniversary of the tragedy in 2016, she honoured the victims and shared recollections of that first "heartbreaking" visit to the village.</p> <p>"We will all be thinking about the 144 people who died – most of them children between the ages of seven and ten – and the hundreds more who have lived with the shock and grief of that day," her emotional statement read.  </p> <p>"I well remember my own visit with Prince Philip after the disaster, and the posy I was given by a young girl, which bore the heart-breaking inscription, 'From the remaining children of Aberfan.'  </p> <p>"Since then, we have returned on several occasions and have always been deeply impressed by the remarkable fortitude, dignity and indomitable spirit that characterises the people of this village and the surrounding valleys."</p> <p>Scroll through the gallery to see the Queen at Aberfan.</p>

Sad truth hidden behind “candid” photo of The Queen

<p>The Queen has perfected her look over the 67 years of her reign, which many have tried to imitate from Andy Warhol to Lord Snowden.</p> <p>It has been described by some as “stoic yet resigned with a hint of maternal benevolence”, according to<span> </span><em><a rel="noopener" href="https://www.news.com.au/entertainment/celebrity-life/royals/it-could-bring-down-the-monarchy-sad-truth-hidden-in-candid-photo-of-the-queen/news-story/38e0c09b2cb7535cc8c7008cfa64097f" target="_blank">news.com.au</a></em>.</p> <p>However, thanks to the Queen’s longtime dresser’s new book, many are getting a personal insight to the Queen and how she lives day to day.</p> <p>Angela Kelly reveals in<span> </span><em>The Other Side of The Coin</em><span> </span>that the Queen wanted to take some portraits that had some inside the palace gates fearing that the images would “bring the Monarchy down”.</p> <p>Why?</p> <p>Because the Queen wanted to pose with her hands inside the pockets of her dress.</p> <blockquote style="background: #FFF; border: 0; border-radius: 3px; box-shadow: 0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width: 540px; min-width: 326px; padding: 0; width: calc(100% - 2px);" class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-permalink="https://www.instagram.com/p/B4M4A9UHxnE/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" data-instgrm-version="12"> <div style="padding: 16px;"> <div style="display: flex; flex-direction: row; align-items: center;"> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 50%; flex-grow: 0; height: 40px; margin-right: 14px; width: 40px;"></div> <div style="display: flex; flex-direction: column; flex-grow: 1; justify-content: center;"> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 4px; flex-grow: 0; height: 14px; margin-bottom: 6px; width: 100px;"></div> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 4px; flex-grow: 0; height: 14px; width: 60px;"></div> </div> </div> <div style="padding: 19% 0;"></div> <div style="display: block; height: 50px; margin: 0 auto 12px; width: 50px;"></div> <div style="padding-top: 8px;"> <div style="color: #3897f0; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: 550; line-height: 18px;">View this post on Instagram</div> </div> <p style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 17px; margin-bottom: 0; margin-top: 8px; overflow: hidden; padding: 8px 0 7px; text-align: center; text-overflow: ellipsis; white-space: nowrap;"><a style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: 17px; text-decoration: none;" rel="noopener" href="https://www.instagram.com/p/B4M4A9UHxnE/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by The Royal Family (@themountbattenwindsors)</a> on Oct 29, 2019 at 4:54am PDT</p> </div> </blockquote> <p>Kelly writes: “Many years ago, Her Majesty disclosed something to me — a secret wish that she’d held since she was young. Throughout The Queen’s time on the throne, she has been photographed in countless formal ways.</p> <p>“However, for a long time, Her Majesty wanted to be photographed more informally and have the freedom, for example, to pose with her hands in her pockets.”</p> <p>Remembering this wish, upon the release of Kelly’s first book<span> </span><em>Dressing the Queen</em>, she asked the Queen herself whether or not she would pose in the way that she always wanted.</p> <p>To Kelly’s surprise, the Queen accepted. She was more than ready to shake things up.</p> <p>“No, Barry, this is how we’re going to do it,” Kelly recounts her saying. “Just keep the camera rolling!”</p> <p>“Her Majesty took her position in front of the lens and started striking a series of poses, slipping her hands in and out of her pockets and placing them onto her hips, mimicking the stances of a professional model,” Kelly says. “I stood by in disbelief — The Queen was a natural.”</p> <p>However, when the images were seen by Royal Collection who was publishing Kelly’s book, they were appalled.</p> <p>“Once the full shoot had been shared more widely, their opinion was that these more candid photographs would bring the Monarchy down, and therefore they were not suitable for the public eye,” Kelly has revealed. “Why they thought that, I have no idea.”</p> <p>At least the Queen looks very happy in the candid snaps.</p>

“You knew exactly what you were doing”: Talk show host bashes Duchess Meghan

<p><span>A talk show host has bashed Duchess Meghan, just days after the royal’s interview about her mental health and public scrutiny went viral.</span></p> <p><span>In the new documentary <em>Harry &amp; Meghan: An African Journey</em>, the Duchess of Sussex said living in the public eye as a new mother is “a struggle” and “not many people have asked if I’m okay”.</span></p> <p><span>“It’s hard,” the Duchess told journalist Tom Bradby. “When I first met my now-husband, my friends were really happy because I was so happy, but my British friends said to me, ‘I’m sure he’s great, but you shouldn’t do it, because the British tabloids will destroy your life’.</span></p> <p><span>“I would say, any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable, and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a newborn, you know – and especially as a woman, it’s a lot.”</span></p> <p><span>TV personality Wendy Williams hit out at the Duchess on Tuesday in a segment on <em>The Wendy Williams Show</em>.</span></p> <p><span>“Meghan, nobody feels sorry for you. You knew what you were signing up for girl!” Williams said.</span></p> <p><span>“You knew exactly what you were doing. And I applaud her plot-ation on the royal situation. But please, don’t try to garner sympathy from us. You knew what you were doing.”</span></p> <p><span>The host added, “Don’t be surprised that the paparazzi are everywhere, of course, because you’re now a royal.”</span></p> <p><span>In the interview with Bradby, Duchess Meghan responded to critics who argued that media scrutiny is just a <a href="https://www.townandcountrymag.com/society/tradition/a29551042/meghan-markle-responds-critics-media-scrutiny-documentary/">part of life as a public figure</a>.</span></p> <p><span>“I never thought that this would be easy, but I thought it would be fair,” the 38-year-old said. “That’s the part that’s really hard to reconcile.</span></p> <p><span>“When people are saying things that are just untrue, and they’re being told they’re untrue, but they’re still allowed to still say them, I don’t know anybody in the world that would feel like that’s okay.”</span></p> <p><span>At the end of the interview, the Duchess expressed gratitude for her family.</span></p> <p><span>“The good thing is I’ve got my baby and I’ve got my husband, and they’re the best.”</span></p> <p><span>Earlier this week, a royal source told <em><a href="https://www.etonline.com/wendy-williams-calls-out-meghan-markle-nobody-feels-sorry-for-you-134831">ET</a> </em>that the Duchess and her husband Prince Harry “are expected to take some extended family time off starting in November”.</span></p>

Helena Bonham Carter uses psychic to contact Princess Margaret for acting tips from beyond the grave

<p>Actress Helena Bonham Carter has revealed that she’s reached out to Princess Margaret via a psychic to ask for her permission to play her in Netflix’s show<span> </span><em>The Crown</em>.</p> <p>Princess Margaret passed away at the age of 71 back in 2002, so Bonham Carter thought that it would only be right to reach out and get permission before she went forth playing the lady herself.</p> <p>“She said, apparently, she was glad it was me,” Bonham Carter, 53, revealed at <a rel="noopener" href="https://www.gloucestershirelive.co.uk/whats-on/whats-on-news/helena-bonham-carter-tells-cheltenham-3398590" target="_blank">a sold-out session at the Cheltenham Literary Festival</a> on October 5.</p> <p>“When you play someone real, you really want their blessing because you do have a responsibility.</p> <p>“I asked her, ‘Are you OK with me playing you?’ And she said, ‘You’re better than the other actress that they were thinking of.’</p> <p>“That made me think maybe she is here because it’s a really classic Margaret thing to say – she is really good at complimenting you and putting you down at the same time.”</p> <p>Reaching out to someone from beyond the grave is nothing new for Bonham Carter as she always talks to a psychic when playing a real person who has passed away.</p> <p>The Queen’s younger sister also included some rules for Bonham Carter to follow.</p> <p>She said, “You’re going to have to brush up and be more groomed and neater.”</p> <p>Bonham Carter has been excited to play the role for a while, as Princess Margaret is known in a “one dimensional” way by the public.</p> <p>“Everyone has such a particular idea of Margaret. It’s very daunting and I don’t really look like her,” she told <em><a rel="noopener" href="https://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/politics/helena-bonham-carter-known-vulnerable-tricky-combination/" target="_blank">The Telegraph</a> </em>in December 2018.</p> <p>“But like the Queen, no one really knows what they’re like privately, so you can make your own choices.”</p> <p>She also confirmed that she researched for the role by talking to people who knew her closely, including relatives and three former ladies-in-waiting.</p> <p>“They really loved her, and when you go to the inner circle of people … they were very happy to talk about her because they miss her,” she said.</p> <p>“I felt very lucky to suddenly be the receptacle of all these stories. I think, for a lot of the friends, they are so tired with her being portrayed in a one-dimensional, very bitchy understanding of her.”</p>
