Gregg Sulkin is facing some backlash after showing off a new well-meaning fashion accessory. “Grab Her By The Brain is an initiative dedicated to empowering females of all ages,” the “Faking It” actor tweeted Thursday, along with a photo of himself sporting a hat bearing the phrase. “Honored to take part.” Unfortunately, Sulkin’s followers found the phrase problematic, despite its attempt to put a more positive spin on Donald Trump’s notorious “Grab her by the p—y” sound bite from a leaked “Access Hollywood” tape recorded in 2005.

Donald Trump insisted tonight during the final Presidential debate that the allegations of women who have said he did in fact do those things of which he boasted to Billy Bush in that Access Hollywood tape have been "largely debunked.” "I don't know these people," he said on the stage, claiming again it's part of a conspiracy perpetrated by Hillary Clinton's campaign. "Those store are all totally false. I don't even apologize to my wife because I don't do anything with… »
Ivanka Trump would like it to be known: She never said that she’d like to see a mulatto c–k. At least not in the presence of BuzzFeed CEO Jonah Peretti.

This is the inside story of why People published Natasha Stoynoff ‘s account of beingÂ physically attacked byÂ Donald TrumpÂ while on assignment for the magazine.

On Tuesday’s “Late Show,” the late night host first joked that Trump and Bush were on a bus because “it was easier it was easier to throw Billy underneath it,” and then brought in “Melania Trump” (actress Laura Benanti) via satellite and asked her why she hasn’t appeared since her plagiarized speech at the Republican National Convention.
“Yes that is my choice, they did not send me to live in an undisclosed location, I’m a private person Stephen, my life is not a photo opp,” she assured Colbert, staring off-camera at someone else in the room coaching her on what to say.
“Melania” went on to confirm that her husband had justified his lewd comments to her and dismissed them as harmless to his campaign because “women know »

After Melania Trump gave her first interview in months to defend Donald Trump's behavior on the leaked Access Hollywood tape, actress Laura Benanti parodied her on Tuesday's Late Show. Benanti as Melania blamed the controversy on the "left wing media, international bankers and Billy Bush."
"Yes, it was all Billy Bush's fault. Now I know why they were on a bus, it was easier to throw Billy underneath it," Colbert said in response to Melania's CNN interview.
"So let me get this straight: Melania's defense of Donald Trump, »
On Oct. 10, The Apprentice producer Mark Burnett broke his silence on the "hatred, division and misogyny" associated with Donald Trump's presidential campaign, just days after the leak of the 2005 Access Hollywood tape in which Trump boasted to Billy Bush of groping women. Burnett's decision to denounce his longtime collaborator comes at a tenuous time for the Apprentice franchise, as NBC gears up to relaunch the show with another figure whose treatment of women has come under scrutiny: Arnold Schwarzenegger. When The New Celebrity Apprentice debuts in January, it will boast a different location (L.A.'s Silicon Beach instead of

Pundits have blamed the media for giving Donald Trump too much airtime since he launched his presidential campaign in June 2015. But Oct. 7 to 14 might have been this season's most lopsided when comparing Trump with Hillary Clinton — and Clinton isn't complaining. Thanks to the Access Hollywood tape in which Trump boasts about groping women, the network news bosses — ABC's James Goldston, NBC's Andrew Lack and CBS' David Rhodes — dedicated a combined 70 minutes of nightly news coverage to Trump during the six weeknights after the leak, according to news analyst Andrew Tyndall, most of it

Stephen Colbert interviewed “Trump’s wife and strategic eye-shadow reserve, Melania Trump” to ask how the “dirty and bad stuff” Donald Trump said in the Access Hollywood tape was Billy Bush’s doing, as she has said in interviews. For those who have been hiding under a flat rock since WaPo published the Access Hollywood tape, “Melania’s defense of the man who wrote ‘The Art of the Deal’ is he got outmaneuvered by a guy who has been deemed by the Today show to be… »
We originally weren’t going to draw attention to the Late Show return of Laura Benanti‘s fabulous Melania Trump impression, but Stephen Colbert egged us on. (And therefore, it’s really all his fault.)
Benanti returned to CBS’ late-night talker in the wake of Mrs. Donald Trump’s recent interviews, in which she denounced those who accused her husband of sexual violence and said Access Hollywood host Billy Bush encouraged Trump to brag about grabbing women “by the p—y” in a 2005 video. »
Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka has finally spoken out about her father’s lewd remarks in a leaked 2005 “Access Hollywood” video, calling the comments “inappropriate” and “offensive.” “My father’s comments were clearly inappropriate and offensive and I’m glad that he acknowledged this fact with an immediate apology to my family and the American people,” Ivanka Trump said in a statement to Fast Company. Earlier this month, leaked audio from a 2005 conversation with then-“Access Hollywood” personality Billy Bush revealed Trump bragging that, when you’re famous, women will let you do whatever you want.

Helen Mirren is no fan of Donald Trump. The Oscar-winning actress said that the Republican presidential nominee is part of a generation of misogynists that is nearing its expiration date, while expressing hope that younger women will have more opportunities than she did when she was beginning her career in the 1960’s.
“It’s dinosaurs,” Mirren said at a New York luncheon for her film “Eye in the Sky.” “I think they’re dying out, honestly. I think there are a few old dinosaurs left and I think that Mr. Trump is one of them.”
During a question and answer session moderated by former New Yorker editor Tina Brown, Mirren poked fun at Trump’s physique, dismissing him as having an “enormous body, small head,” and noting that he had, “dinosaur-y hands.” Mirren’s comments came the day after she appeared at a Broadway fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, during which »

On Monday, Rose McGowan wrote a powerful open letter to Hollywood and to the “woman and men in the entertainment,” urging them to not work with offenders and to “take a stand” against sexual assault.
“I say be brave. Do not work with those you know to be offenders or you are no better than they. Take a stand,” she wrote. “You are culpable for your actions. Stop rewarding sociopaths. Every time you sanction abhorrent behavior, you are aiding and abetting a crime, that makes you no better than the criminal.”
Adding, “How many stories do you have to hear before you do the right thing and stop rewarding men that are predators?”

Earlier this month, a horrifying, troubling video from 2005 put Donald Trump's entire presidential campaign in jeopardy, and for good reason. The clip depicts a conversation between Trump and then-Access Hollywood host Billy Bush; the two men talk crudely about objectifying women, grabbing their genitals, and making unwanted sexual advances. While Trump obviously had to deal with the issue - it was, in fact, awkwardly addressed during Sunday's second presidential debate - Billy Bush was not exempt from media scrutiny. Billy had only just joined Today as an anchor in May 2016, but the now-infamous video may have permanently dented his career. We're breaking down Billy's side of the timeline, from Friday's video leak to Monday's massive fallout. A crude, taped conversation between Donald Trump and Billy Bush surfaces. On Friday, Oct. 7, The Washington Post obtained and released a 2005 video featuring Donald Trump and Billy Bush. At the time, Billy »
