Michael Moore Blames Donald Trump Presidency on … Gwen Stefani

Before the days of Rudy Giuliani saying “Truth isn’t truth,” Donald Trump was a reality star. So what prompted him to run for office?

Michael Moore has a theory, and he shared it while promoting his new film on Trump.

Moore says that the blame for Trump’s run for office can ulimately be laid at the feet of … Gwen Stefani. What?!

In a lengthy interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Moore shares his curious theory about what heralded our current political nightmare.

While it’s a bit of an oversimplification to blame Gwen Stefani … he basically blames Gwen Stefani.

See, Gwen was getting paid more to be a coach on The Voice than Trump was for starring on The Apprentice. Both shows were on NBC.

Moore’s theory is that Trump staged that first, infamous political rally as a stunt to remind NBC of his value as an entertainer.

And here we are in 2018, where every day is steeped in misery and dread. Is this all Gwen’s fault?

“He’d been talking about running for president since 1988,” Moore tells The Hollywood Reporter.

Trump spoke of the idea, like anyone who always believes that they could do better, Moore says, “but he didn’t really want to be president.”

“There’s no penthouse in the White House,” Moore explains.

Presidents work relentlessly at hours that they seldom get to choose. They are under constant scrutiny and carry the weight of the world on their shoulders.

“And,” Moore adds. “He doesn’t want to live in a black city” like Washington D.C.

“He was trying to pit NBC against another network,” Moore summarizes.

Moore says that all that Trump wanted was a little more money and attention, “but it just went off the rails.”

Trump’s stunt, if Moore is correct about his intentions, backfired disastrously.

While any hefty dose of anti-immigration rhetoric is going to be exciting to racists, Trump referring to Mexican immigrants as “rapists” was too openly hateful.

NBC severed their ties with Trump, leaving him without a show … but with crowds of enthusiastic fans who clung to his every word.

Obviously, Gwen Stefani is not actually to blame for our current existential misery.

Of course she was being paid more for her role on The Voice — she’s a huge star.

Trump was, at the time, just a famous buffoon whom most people didn’t consider to be a political figure at all unless they remembered his “birther” antics.

In fact, it was smart of him to secure the regular salary of a reality series. That’s a good idea for anyone who is famously terrible at running a business.

This also isn’t NBC’s fault. Cutting ties with him after his racist comments was the right thing to do. Unfortunately, too much of the electorate did not feel the same way.

Trump is not Gwen’s fault. The Trump Regime is the fault of Donald Trump, of the society that paved the way for him, and of everyone who voted for him.

Moore’s theory may also ignore that Trump had apparently been plotting this since 2012, even registering trademarks in the buildup to his 2015 announcement.

Notably, Trump’s trip to Russia is believed by many to have helped to fuel his desire to run for office.

Moore may be right in that Trump never planned to win, but we’re not sure that Gwen’s salary was the impetus that he believes it to be.

As always, however, Michael Moore’s perspective is an interesting one to hear, even if you do not agree with him.

Farrah Abraham Blames MTV for Insanity of Jenelle Evans

Farrah Abraham holds a grudge better than someone holds a camera in front of the former Teen Mom star for a live sex show.

In light of Jenelle Evans flipping out on a motorist and getting arrest, an incident captured on a recent Teen Mom OG episode, the former MTV personality has placed the blame for this situation squarely on…

… the company that fired her?

How did Farrah make this connection?

Good question!

Scroll down for the answer!

1. Wait… What Happened?!?

Jenelle evans and david eason on july 4
In April 2018, Evans pulled a gun on a fellow motorist who was driving near her in North Carolina. Her son, eight-year old Jace, was with her at the time of the confrontation.

2. Who Called the Cops?

Jenelle raging on the road
Evans, actually. She dialed 911 to report that her kid was injured after a some dude “purposely slammed on the brakes” in front of her. This maybe was possibly true. But it also left out some key facts.

3. For Instance?

Jenelle evans eye roll
Well… based on report from the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office Communication Center CFS, this other driver claimed that Jenelle “hit his truck, ran over his mailbox and pulled a gun on him.” Oh. Okay then. That sure is different from what Jenelle insinuated originally.

4. How Dare This Guy?!?

Onlookers, meanwhile, said that Evans became irate while driving behind this man and then took it upon herself to follow him to his house, where she threatened him physically.

5. According to a Witness:

Jenelley evans
“A crazy lady followed [the man] to his house, fixing to get shot. She was driving blocking traffic, he tried to pass her on the inside like everyone else and she flipped out.” That does sound like our gal!

6. Bring It On!

The driver himself says that Evans ended up on his property and he taunted her to “bring it on.” Evans obliged, brandishing a firearm!

Kendra Wilkinson: Hank Blames ME For His Extramarital Handjob!

Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett, after weeks of what we can only awkwardly characterize as "hype," split.

At first, things were looking more-or-less amicable.

That has now changed.

Kendra has gone from posting about being sad and single and needed to feel motivated and excited again to tweeting some accusations against Hank.

These aren't what you'd expect — they're not accusations about his behavior during their nearly 9 years of marriage.

These are accusations about his behavior towards her now that they have broken up.

Kendra hastily deleted most of the tweets that we are about to show you.

Take a look:

1. Kendra and Hank are over

Goodbye hank
And it looks like things have turned downright nasty

2. First, Kendra accuses Hank of recording her

Kendra wilkinson tweets 01
In most places in the United States, it is illegal to record someone speaking without their permission.

3. She says that he blames her for a lot of things

Kendra wilkinson tweets 02
I’m no sports expert, but it is my understanding that the Vikings making him a free agent was the end of his football career. That’s something that happens, sooner or later, to every athlete.

4. That wasn’t his most outlandish claim

Kendra wilkinson tweets 03
While Kendra was pregnant with their daughter, Alijah, Hank reportedly cheated on her with a transgender model, though he insists that he was, at worst, a passive participant. Other reports claim that the two went further than he claims. Regardless, it’s hard to see how a pregnant Kendra could have forced his hand (or any other body part).

5. Kendra was outta there.

Kendra wilkinson tweets 04
No one likes being recorded or disrespected. Especially by an ex. There are clearly a lot of emotions in play.

6. But Kendra wasn’t done

Kendra deleted those tweets — which included some accusations. But then she tweeted out some further thoughts, which have ALSO since been deleted.
