Andy Dick Groped Ivanka Trump in Resurfaced Jimmy Kimmel Footage

Of all of the men named in #MeToo stories, Andy Dick was the least surprising to many folks. Yes, including Harvey Weinstein.

And now, the world can see for themselves in newly resurfaced video from 2007.

On television — on Jimmy Kimmel, in fact — Andy Dick reaches over and gropes Ivanka before getting removed by security.

Andy Dick is a comedian and actor. Unfortunately, he has been accused of groping a number of people.

Despite his dismissive attitude towards those claims, he has been let go from projects because of it.

(Don't touch people without their consent, folks)

Now, an old clip of Andy exhibiting inappropriate touching has surfaced.

He and Ivanka Trump were both guests of Jimmy Kimmel's in 2007. And Andy couldn't — or rather, he simply refused to — keep his hands to himself.

In the clip, Andy can be seen reaching over and running his finger's along Ivanka's leg.

Kimmel tells him to stop.

Ivanka, though trying to laugh it off at the time (and clearly looking over to Kimmel to make sure that he has noticed), tries to get him to stop.

Eventually, Andy was removed by security.

Kimmel would later suggest that Andy, who has been to rehab more than a dozen times in his struggle for sobriety, was under the influence.

Andy actually reminded his followers about this incident by posting about it in December of 2017.

"The time I 'groped' Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, on Jimmy Kimmel Live," he writes.

"Her legs were sparkling," he says, as if to explain. "And I was trying to see if the glitter would wipe off."

That curiosity is understandable. Acting on it is not excusable.

"I also mistakenly thought she would date me," he says.

Wow.

"I was jokingly carried off by security," Andy says.

Maybe half-jokingly.

"Is anybody going to carry Trump off?" Andy asked in December. "No joke. Confusing times."

This is a transparent attempt to deflect from his own actions.

See, a lot of people would like to see Donald Trump impeached and tried for his misconduct and alleged crimes.

But trying to distract from your own behavior by pointing to someone else's is called whataboutism.

Ivanka Trump may be her father's daughter, but that doesn't mean that it's open season on any of her body parts.

Andy Dick has been dismissive of allegations against him, saying that he never touched people's genitals and perhaps licked some people's faces.

His implication was that it's all part of his brand.

Folks, "it's all part of the act" does not fly when we're talking about sexual harassment or sexual assault.

If the other person does not consent, you are not entitled to touch them. Yes, even if their father is a bad, bad man.

Andy Dick may struggle with sobriety, and we wish him the best on his quest for good mental and physical health.

But everyone has their struggles. No one is entitled to invade another's body without permission. Even if it's covered in glitter.

Woman Scales Statue of Liberty in Protest of Donald Trump

The Statue of Liberty in New York City was shut down for most of July Fourth this week after a woman actually managed to hoist herself all the way up to the robes of this iconic pretend woman.

(To be accurate, seven protesters holding a banner that read "Abolish I.C.E." actually stood at the base of this national monument prior to tha above incident, prompting officials to close the statue to tourists.

But it was the woman and her climb that got all the national attention.)

Not until the woman was apprehended by authorities did we learn her name and a little more about her background.

Her name is Therese Okoumou and she is a native of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

According to various news outlets, Okoumou told police that she scaled all the way up this monumentto protest the separation of immigrant children from parents who cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.

This has been a prominent issue of national debate for weeks now, with stars such as Amber Heard making their opinions on the topic well known.

The activist group behind the Abolish I.C.E. sign, Rise and Resist, Tweeted that the climber wasn’t connected to its demonstration and expressed concern for her safety, although we believe she did not suffer any injuries.

Okoumou, 44, has lived in The Big Apple for the past 10 years.

Police with safety ropes had to go up, grab her and bring her down as she sat under the sandal of the statue for several minutes late yesterday afternoon.

She was eventually tethered between two officers and climbed down to the promontory via a ladder to safety.

“No one in the group knew this was going to happen,” Rise and Resist member Jay Walker told the New York Daily News, adding:

“We don’t know if she did it on the spur of the moment or if she had been planning it beforehand."

Once she reached her destination, Okoumou held up a T-shirt that supported her case, as you can see in the photo above.

"At first, she wasn't friendly with us, but we took the time to get a rapport with her so that took a while," Officer Brian Glacken said in a news conference Wednesday evening, elaborating as follows:

"She just kind of mentioned the kids in Texas. I guess the whole debate that's going on about that. In the beginning, she threatened to push us off, push the ladder off, but we stayed with her…

"She actually apologized to us for having to go up and get her."

Watch the video at the top of this post to learn more and to see this protest/rescue in action.

Melania Trump Laughs Off Ivanka’s Claims of Influencing POTUS

After widespread national and international backlash and Melania Trump’s “I don’t really care” controversy, Donald Trump finally retracted his family separation immigration policy.

First Daughter Ivanka Trump has reportedly been claiming credit for influencing her father.

First Lady Melania is, according to this report, not even a little amused.

HollywoodLife reports that Melania was amused at best when Ivanka seemed to claim credit for influencing daddy dearest.

According to their source: “Melania thought it was laughable that Ivanka took credit for changing Donald’s mind about the immigrant family separation policy.”

After massive domestic and international outcry, Trump did walk back his family separation policy … though countless children are still separated from their parents.

“When in truth,” the insider continues. “As far as Melania is aware, she had very little input on the matter at all.”

Which leads to the question of whether Ivanka simply believes that she had more influence, or was just trying to make it appear so for the public.

We don’t know the answer to that. And it’s not clear if Melania does, either.

The source continues, describing the relationship between Trump’s eldest daughter and newest wife.

“Melania really doesn’t care much for Ivanka,” the insider reveals.

Well, neither do plenty of people. Not everyone gets along with their husband’s family.

“She finds her,” the source explains. “To be a little devious and self serving.”

That … certainly matches the Trump brand.

“Melania thinks that Ivanka is very much her father’s daughter,” the insider claims.

The source explains that shade, saying: “And that in essence she always puts her needs first before all others.”

Ivanka spoke out on Twitter after Trump walked back his family separation policy.

“Thank you @POTUS for taking critical action ending family separation at our border,” Ivanka wrote.

“Congress must now act,” Ivanka continued, pivoting the burden from the Executive Branch to the Legislative. “[And] find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values.”

That’ll be the day, right?

“The same values that so many come here seeking as they endeavor to create a better life for their families,” Ivanka’s tweet describes.

“Now that an [Executive Order] has been signed ending family separation at the border,” Ivanka concludes. “It is time to focus on swiftly and safely reuniting the families that have been separated.”

That process has been slow-going, with reports coming out this week of parents being forced to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars to fly back the children who were taken from them.

Ivanka allegedly considers herself to have been one of the influences for Trump’s turnaround, which is interesting.

So, remember the “c-ntroversy’ surrounding Samantha Bee’s insult of Ivanka Trump?

The focus, which man perceived to be deliberately manufactured outrage by people seeking revenge for the cancellation of the Roseanne reboot, surrounded Bee’s use of a c-word (it was not “cookie”).

But the actual subject of Samantha Bee’s monologue was about Trump’s controversial immigration policies.

Because Ivanka presented herself as an ally of fellow women during the 2016 campaign, she has repeatedly been a focus for Bee when issues of humans rights and women’s rights come up.

So Bee, when she dropped the c-word, was suggesting that Ivanka actually act like a human rights advocate and influence her father.

Now, this stance by Melania of disliking Ivanka or thinking that she’s ridiculous for claiming undue credit has not been confirmed.

So much about Melania, who speaks less than most First Ladies, is speculation.

But it is certainly easy to imagine conflict and resentment between Melania and Ivanka, and we don’t just mean because of Trump’s creepy comments about Ivanka’s looks.

Though … also because of that.

We don’t know if Ivanka really had any input with Trump.

But the only person we know for sure who has recently exerted influences over Trump (and isn’t a Russian autocrat0 is … Kim Kardashian.
