Taylor Swift Groping Trial Win — Judge Throws Out DJ’s Case Against Her!

Taylor Swift‘s trial is (almost) over!

The Shake It Off singer has spent the week in court after radio DJ David Mueller sued her, her mother Andrea Swift, and her radio promotions director Frank Bell for up to $3 million for allegedly ruining his career.

In turn, she countersued him for sexually assaulting her as he allegedly “grabbed her ass” during a meet and greet back in 2013.

Now Mueller’s case against Tay is already over — the judge has dismissed the claim, saying Mueller had not proved in any way that Taylor personally did anything to get him fired.

According to CNN, Mueller’s case will go forward with Taylor’s mother and Bell as defendants.

Taylor’s countersuit, for just a symbolic $1, will continue next week, with a verdict expected as early as Monday.

Volkswagen upsizes California camper van with XXL concept

Volkswagen previews the all-new California XXL concept

“Westfalia” is undoubtedly the most famous name in Volkswagen camper van lore, but “California” has also claimed its place in the VW camper van lexicon. Launched as a Westfalia model in 1988, the California eventually became Volkswagen’s own in house-built camper when the California T5 went into production in 2004. Now the good Volks from Wolfsburg are exploring an XXL-sized California based on the second-generation Crafter van. The extra size paves the way for a wet bath and roomy kitchen.

Audience Literally TURN THEIR BACKS On Trump Team Member Omarosa At NABJ Conference — Do YOU Think The Cold Responses Were Justified??

Omarosa Manigault, former Apprentice winner and current Donald Trump aide, appeared on a panel about police brutality at the National Association of Black Journalists convention in New Orleans on Friday, and it was, in Trumpspeak, the greatest panel in the history of panels.

In other words, it was a complete mess.

NY Times reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones was scheduled to moderate but reportedly bailed after Omarosa, now the director of communications for the Office Of Public Liaison for Trump, was added.

According to a source talking to Page Six:

“The majority there don’t want her involved. It’s heavy drama — even the moderator is refusing. Everyone sees it as extremely offensive.”

Panelist Jelani Cobb of The New Yorker also dropped out, explaining:

“(It) wasn’t simply the addition of Omarosa. It was that she was added at the eleventh hour and it was unclear whether we would be able to discuss substantive issues regarding the administration and its policing policies. Also, the panel was very disorganized, and basic things like format were not clear.”

That was all before the event got started!

Once it did, it seemed incredibly contentious on the stage.

Early on, when asked about her role in policy discussions, she told another panelist to Google it instead of asking her:

And then:

Later Omarosa was asked how she could defend Trump’s comments telling police to be more brutal:

Despite Omarosa reportedly saying Trump joking about police brutality was wrong, the biggest statement was in the audience, several of whom began stood and turned their backs on Omarosa as she spoke:

Rainbow Six Siege ‘Operation Blood Orchid’ launches later this month on Xbox One

Prepare your breaching charges – Rainbow Six Siege is heading to Hong Kong later this month, alongside three new operators.

Six months after its last major expansion, Ubisoft has finally unveiled “Operation Blood Orchid” for Rainbow Six Siege. The game’s sixth content drop takes combat to Hong Kong, adding a new map and playable operators upon the existing multiplayer sandbox.

Although little is officially known about Operation Blood Orchid, today’s brief teaser backs up previous leaks in recent weeks. A new amusement park-themed map is expected to be the centerpiece of the update, alongside three new operators. Two of these, codenamed “Dazzler” and “Caltrop,” will be a part of Hong Kong’s Special Duties Unit (SDU), while the third will be a female member of Poland’s GROM counter-terrorism division. Another member of the GROM unit is set to release later this year, as a part of the South Korean operation.

After fans expressed their worry, a note was later posted that said the Irish musician was “safe, and she is not suicidal” and is “receiving the best of care.”

On Thursday, Fiona Apple shared a video where she called the Nothing Compares 2 U singer her “hero,” and offered to “be of some use to” her.

The 39-year-old told O’Connor:

“I want you to know that you are my hero as well. I just saw the video of you and I don’t want you to feel like that. I don’t want you to feel like that. You’ve given so much and I wish I could be there. I wish I could be of some use to you. I wish I could — I’m your friend. That’s all I want to say, and you’re my hero.”

This Fake ‘Mike Pence For President’ Website Is HIGHlariously On Point — And Fooling A Lot Of People!

Amid rumors he’s planning on running for President in place of Donald Trump, someone created a parody website imagining VP Mike Pence‘s campaign.

After some outlets reported on Friday that Pence’s real site had been hacked (it hasn’t — MikePence.com still takes you directly to DonaldJTrump.com, like it always has), it quickly became clear that OfficialMikePence.com was its own entity.

While it’s laugh-out-loud, pointed satire, it’s also a depressing reminder that even if Drumpf were to be impeached, the 46 we’d be left with isn’t exactly a dream for the LGBT community.

In case you didn’t notice in the upper left corner, Pence’s own running mate is “Christ” and that little “Are you a homosexual” link? Yeah, that takes you to Hell.com.

The entire site, which appears to have been created by Funny Or Die, is sweet, sweet satire that reminds you what an awful public servant Pence is, even if he seems like JFK next to President Fire N. Fury.

But our favorite part has to be “Mike Facts,” a hilarious series of nonsensical fun facts about the Vice President:

– Mike Pence went to college.

- Mike Pence won 3rd prize in the 1972 Indiana Junior Corn Contest.

- Mike Pence likes to watch movies.

- Mike Pence carries a tri-fold wallet in his right back pocket.

- Mike Pence has won seven (7) penmanship awards.

- Mike Pence has a “Family RV” a “Personal RV” and a “Permanent RV” aka his house.

– As a young adult, Mike Pence voted for Jimmy Carter after a catchphrase he coined, “I’m a Carter Supparter,” went semi-viral. – Mike’s favorite part of the American flag is the bars. – Mike Pence played baseball in high school until he suffered blunt trauma to his right testicle when a baseball hit it, rupturing the protective covering surrounding the right testicle as well as a contusion to the major blood vessel that, of course, resulted in massive bleeding and prolonged bruising that forced paramedics to cut through his baseball pants in the middle of a junior varsity game against high school rival Glen Oaks high school. All the girls at Mike’s high school were there and saw his bleeding bruised testicle and ruptured genitals. He played second base. – Mike’s favorite type of technology is radio. – Mike’s favorite late night snack is unleavened bread. – Mike Pence can play all of “Joker” by Steve Miller Band on guitar except the slide part after “Some people call me Maurice.”

We also highly recommend this campaign ad:

While it’s still available, you can go to officialmikepence.com yourself to navigate the hilarity.
