Ariana Grande reportedly had a proposed performance at the White House rejected because of the outcry over her doughnut licking scandal last year.
WikiLeaks published thousands of emails on Friday that it had hacked from the Democratic National Committee, including one thread revealing Ariana was vetted prior to being booked to sing at a White House gala late last year.
Gawker reports the singer passed the criminal and financial record checks, but the background checks included a detailed report on the controversy surrounding the incident in which Ariana was caught on camera at a doughnut shop.
The Bang Bang hitmaker licked two doughnut she did not pay for at a bakery in California, and was also caught saying “I hate America”.
There was public outcry after video footage was released, as Republican congressman Jeff Duncan from South Carolina called out America’s “double standards” for not bashing the popstar over her candid words the same way it had presidential candidate Donald Trump over his comments regarding Mexican migrants.
The White House report also includes notes about Ariana blasting a fan over a homophobic remark about her gay brother Frankie.
In the leaked emails, staff member Kevin Snowden summarizes the vetting of the pop star, and wrote, “Video caught her licking other peoples’ dounuts while saying she hates America; Republican Congressman used this video and said it was a double standard that liberals were not upset with her like they are with Trump who criticized Mexicans;Cheap Jerseys from china cursed out a person on Twitter after that person used an offensive word towards her brother.”
Upon this review, White House employee Bobby Schmuck replied simply to the suggestion that Ariana perform at the presidential gala with, “Nope, sorry.”
Whitehall wages war on Canada geese
CHRISTMAS may be coming, but the geese are getting far too fat for the liking of the Government. And the Heritage Department has already shot 100 of them secretly at dawn on Bird Island in St James’ Park, the very place where they were first introduced to Britain from North America, as an ornamental species, by Charles II 325 years ago.
The numbers of Canada Geese, the football hooligans of the bird world, is doubling every eight years. Forty years ago there were only 2,000 in Britain, now there are well over 60,000, and by the end of the decade there will be around 120,000.
They are aggressive, crowding out other waterfowl, and attack children trying to feed the ducks. They damage crops and strip the banks of ponds and lakes of grass.
Cursed with regrettable digestive systems, they produce prodigious amounts of slimy green excrement each bird deposits an inch and a half long dropping every three or four minutes.
They have no natural predators here (even foxes are reluctant to take them on). They can live for 12 years, and they are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act.
They also have famous friends. The fight got so fierce that Rentokil, the company hired to carry out the cull, refused to do the deed, fearing ‘irreparable’ damage to its reputation.
The RSPCA decries ‘character assassination of a species’ while the RSPB says ‘Canada Geese should be innocent until proven guilty’. Chastened by this fiasco, Whitehall has set up a working group, including conservationists, hunters, bureaucrats and Wandsworth Council, to come up with a ‘humane solution’.
The group has just come up with the idea of coating the eggs with paraffin, but this is banned by the Ministry of Agriculture.
Park keepers in Milton Keynes take the eggs from nests, soon after they are laid, cook them in a tea urn and return them, thus fooling the parents into going to work on hard boiled eggs. Bromley Council puts trip wires around its ponds to stop the geese waddling on to the grass.
Privately many members of the working groups say that killing geese is the only effective solution. Hunters can already shoot them in the spring and summer, but are forbidden to sell their carcasses, and have had little impact on the population.http://www.cheapjerseysfreeshipping.cc And so far, the Government has been wary of ordering an organised slaughter.
The Heritage Department last week admitted to the Independent on Sunday that they had secretly shot 100 geese in St James’s Park in the early hours of one morning last July. Asked why it had not made it public, a spokesman said that was part of ‘the normal day to day management of wildfowl’, before confirming that it was ‘unprecedented’.
One senior Environment Department official has his own solution: he ate a Canada Goose for dinner last New Year’s Day. ‘People say they are inedible,’ he said. ‘They may taste a bit gamey, but they make jolly good eating.’
