«Казалось, что компания стала нашим четвертым ребенком»

Французские СМИ рисуют образ Маргариты Луи-Дрейфус как загадочной русской, воюющей с именитой бизнес-династией, сироты из Ленинграда, которая вышла замуж за богача и взяла под контроль солидный французский бизнес. Ее путь от торговки печатными платами в СССР до кресла руководителя компании Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC), одного из крупнейших агросырьевых торговых домов мира, без сомнения, весьма примечателен. Но, как утверждает 54-летняя Маргарита Луи-Дрейфус, когда пошли споры с семьей ее покойного мужа, история ее жизни была изрядно искажена СМИ.

Female Presidential Candidate Finds New Purpose After Election Defeat In ‘Veep’ Trailer

And yes, Gary (Tony Hale) is still there by her side.

And tell him I’ll stand at a glass podium and wear a short skirt,” she adds. “Veep” returns April 16 at 10:30 p.m. ET on HBO. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

The Biggest Moment Of Nancy Pelosi's Town Hall Almost Didn't Happen

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s exchange with a college student about capitalism and the Democratic Party’s economic agenda was arguably the most memorable moment of Tuesday night’s CNN town hall with the California congresswoman. But it almost did not take place, because the questioner, New York University sophomore Trevor Hill, had agreed to ask Pelosi a “personal” question at CNN’s behest. His decision not to do so, apparently came as a surprise to CNN, including host Jake Tapper. Hill first heard about the town hall from a friend who had been contacted by a CNN producer, he recalled in an interview with The Huffington Post. He submitted the same question he ended up asking on live television ― almost verbatim. “According to a Harvard University poll last May, 51% of young voters between the ages of 18 and 29 no longer support capitalism. The Democratic Party inarguably failed to inspire young leftists during this election cycle, who voted in overwhelming numbers for the farther left candidate during the presidential primary elections,” Hill wrote in an email to a CNN producer. “What is the Democratic Party going to change going forward in order to capture and inspire the new generations of leftists who feel as though the party is failing to stand up for left wing economic values?” CNN did not accept his submission, according to Hill. “But they seemed interested in my biographical information that I had given them,” Hill said. “So they emailed me back, asked for a picture and stuff. And then they asked me, ‘Oh, do you want to know anything a little more personal about her? Maybe you could submit some extra questions.’” Hill agreed to submit two questions that he characterized as “fluffy.” CNN selected one Hill had drafted based on the HBO comedy series “Veep.” He recalled the question he was supposed to ask: “One of my favorite TV programs is the HBO show ‘Veep.’ In the show, Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ character is subjected to a lot of ridiculous and embarrassing campaign events by her staff that she doesn’t enjoy in order to secure votes. I was wondering if you could relate to us a time when maybe you felt ridiculous or embarrassed on the campaign trail and if there is anyone you would like to call out for putting you in that situation?” Hill decided not to pose the query, however, because he was more interested in whether Pelosi thought Democrats should embrace a more progressive economic platform. “It would have been fun, but it definitely wasn’t what I really wanted to know,” Hill said of the “Veep” question. “And as a former Democrat, I had some stuff that I really did want to know about, like if they were going to make any effort to regain a lot of the voters they lost during the election cycle. So that was what I was more interested in. That’s why I asked my question.” But given the dire circumstances ― I’m so sorry Mr. Tapper ― given the dire circumstances our country is in, I wonder if you would indulge me in a little bit more of a serious question about the future of the Democratic Party. Trevor Hill CNN did not dispute Hill’s version of events. “To ensure we cover a variety of topics, we asked him if he had a personal (non-policy) question he wanted to ask the House Minority Leader,” a CNN spokeswoman said in a statement. “The question he originally submitted and then ultimately asked, was his.” When Hill proceeded to ask Pelosi about whether Democrats planned to accommodate young people who believe in progressive economic policies, it seemed like CNN’s Jake Tapper was caught off guard. “This is what we call in this business a soft landing. And it’s a lighter question from our friend Trevor Hill. He’s a student at NYU, he’s from San Diego,” Tapper said by way of introducing Hill’s question. “Good evening congresswoman. Thank you for being here and thank you for taking my question. I was originally slated to ask a soft question ―” Hill began. “Uh oh,” Tapper interjected. “But given the dire circumstances ― I’m so sorry Mr. Tapper ― given the dire circumstances our country is in, I wonder if you would indulge me in a little bit more of a serious question about the future of the Democratic Party,” Hill continued, before asking his question. Although Pelosi critiqued capitalism in its current form, her response ended up angering many progressives. Pelosi’s critics were particularly peeved that she did not address whether Democrats are interested in taking the party in a more populist economic direction or otherwise offer proposals for remedying the flaws in capitalism she enumerated. In some cases, they also lamented what they regarded as her naive and paternalistic view of past business tycoons’ generosity, including an unnamed former chairman of the now-shuttered 20th century multinational Standard Oil of New Jersey. The exchange became something of a metaphor for the larger struggle for the Democratic Party’s soul taking place between its leaders and its younger, more progressive voting base. Hill’s personal story only heightened the political significance of his dialogue with the House minority leader. He told HuffPost that he abandoned the party when he felt its leaders’ sunny assessments of the economy were out of sync with his family’s financial suffering. Unable to pay their bills, his parents declared bankruptcy three years ago. HuffPost asked Pelosi’s office on Thursday if she had anything to add to her Tuesday night response, such as addressing Hill’s query about whether Democrats would embrace economic populism going forward. “Leader Pelosi’s statement was an indictment of shareholder capitalism and how it’s falling short,” Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Pelosi, responded in a statement. “We hope that Mr. Hill and other young people interested in economic inequality would join efforts in each of their states to fight for a living wage as Leader Pelosi leads the fight for one at the national level.” Below is a complete transcript of Hill’s conversation with Pelosi: JAKE TAPPER: This is what we call in this business a soft landing. And it’s a lighter question from our friend Trevor Hill. He’s a student at NYU, he’s from San Diego. TREVOR Hill: Good evening congresswoman. Thank you for being here and thank you for taking my question. I was originally slated to ask a soft question― TAPPER: Uh oh. HILL: But given the dire circumstances ― I’m so sorry Mr. Tapper ― but given the dire circumstances our country is in, I wonder if you would indulge me in a little bit more of a serious question about the future of the Democratic Party. What I’ve seen on NYU’s campus and what I’ve seen in polls all over, in CNN even, a Harvard University poll last May showed that people between the ages of 18 and 29 ― not just Democrats, not just leftists ― 51 percent of people between 18 and 29 no longer support the system of capitalism. That’s not me asking you to make a radical statement about capitalism but I’m just telling you that my experience is the younger generation is moving left on economic issues. And I’ve been so excited to see Democrats move left on social issues. As a gay man, I’ve been very proud to see you fighting for our rights and many Democratic leaders fighting for our rights. But I wonder if there’s anywhere you feel the Democrats could move farther left to a more populist message, the way the alt-right has sort of captured this populist strain on the right wing ― if you think we could make a more stark contrast to right-wing economics? NANCY PELOSI: I thank you for your question. But I have to say, we’re capitalist and that’s just the way it is. However, we do think that capitalism is not necessarily meeting the needs with the income inequality that we have in our country. And let me just tell you this ― I don’t know how much time we have ― about 40 years ago, no less a person in terms of capitalism than the chairman of the Standard Oil of New Jersey said ― that he talked about stakeholder capitalism. Capitalism that said when we make decisions as managements and CEOs of the country, we take into consideration our shareholders, our management, our workers, our customers and the community at large. At that time, the disparity between the CEO and the worker was about 40 times ― 40 times more for the CEO than the worker. As productivity rose, the pay of the worker rose, and the pay of the CEO rose. Everything rose together. Around 20 years ago it started to turn into ― maybe 15 ― 20 years ago it started to turn into shareholder capitalism where we’re strictly talking about the quarterly report. So a CEO would make much more money by keeping pay low even though productivity is rising. The worker’s not getting more pay and the CEO is getting a big pay because he’s kept costs low by depriving workers of their share of the productivity that they created. And as I call it. a right angle going in the wrong direction. The disparity between the CEO and the worker under the shareholder capitalism is more like 350 to 400 to 1 ― from 40 to 1 to 350 to 400 to 1. That income inequality is an immorality and it is not even smart from an economic standpoint, because it doesn’t grow the economy. The more money you put in the pocket of the worker for the productivity he or she has produced, the more money they will spend, consume with confidence, inject into the economy and grow the economy. So what you talked about and what you talked about are the same thing. The stagnation of wages and the financial instability that families are feeling tied with with seeing priorities that are not necessarily ones that they have ― well, they care about it but it’s not a job, and being able to have a home home and send your children to school and have a dignified retirement are what we want for all Americans. And capitalism should serve that purpose. The capitalist system has been well served by the so-called safety net. It’s not just a safety net for individual workers. It’s a safety net for capitalism. Because they can go through their cycles, and we have unemployment insurance or all kinds of benefits as a safety yet that enable them to go through cycles. But instead ― and there’s some enlightened corporations which say, ‘I’m keeping my whole staff through thick and thin. At the end of the day, I have a productive, trained, loyal work force.’ So we have to change the thinking of people. I don’t think we have to change from capitalism. We’re a capitalist system. The free market is a place that can do good things. Actually, Adam Smith ― Wealth of Nations, the invisible hand ― he was more compassionate. He wrote two books. His other book was about our responsibilities to each other, as well as Wealth of Nations. I wish he had written one book where he incorporated all of it together. I hear what you’re saying about young people. And may I say we have our Eric Swalwell, heads up something called our Future Forum, where young members of congress in their 30s, late 20s ― I think they’re all, some of them have graduated to 30s now ― go around the country and listen to young people. Perhaps he can visit you at school as well. But thank you for sharing. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Гадание на премиях. Гильдия киноактеров США назвала лучшие фильмы года

В Лос-Анджелесе вручены награды американской Гильдии киноактеров (Screen Actors Guild, SAG). Традиционно эту премию принято рассматривать еще и как способ предсказания: основываясь на выборе киноактеров, можно строить предположения относительно актерских итогов "Оскара", до вручения которого осталось уже меньше месяца. Последние десять лет лауреаты премии Гильдии киноактеров за лучшую мужскую роль неизменно получали следом аналогичного "Оскара". Призы за лучшую женскую роль и за актерский ансамбль совпадали хоть и не всегда, но в убедительном большинстве случаев. Исходя из нынешних видов на "Оскар", где, кажется, все сулит тотальный успех фильму "Ла-Ла Ленд", можно было бы рассчитывать, что картина Дэмиена Шазелла и здесь сорвет основной премиальный куш. Однако этого не случилось. "Ла-Ла Ленд" получил 14 номинаций на "Оскар" В самой почетной номинации "Лучший актерский ансамбль" победили "Скрытые фигуры" Теодора Мелфи, основанный на реальных событиях фильм о трех афроамериканках-программистках, работавших в NASA во время космической гонки 1960-х. За лучшую мужскую роль награжден Дензел Вашингтон ("Ограды"), среди мужских и женских ролей второго плана выбраны соответственно Махершала Али ("Лунный свет") и Виола Девис ("Ограды"). И только в одной номинации гильдия все-таки уважила "Ла-Ла Ленд": за главную женскую роль награждена Эмма Стоун. Глубоко политкорректные результаты срезонировали с нашумевшим решением Дональда Трампа ограничить въезд в США для жителей ряда мусульманских стран и вообще с антитрамповскими настроениями. Многие из награжденных прямо или косвенно сослались на противоречивое президентское решение. Звезда "Скрытых фигур" Тараджи Хенсон напомнила, что этот фильм - "история о том, что бывает, когда мы забываем наши различия и объединяемся". Актриса Джулия Луис-Дрейфус высказалась яснее: "Поскольку я люблю нашу страну, меня ужасают ее ошибки. Этот запрет на въезд - ошибка. Это не по-американски". Луис-Дрейфус благодаря своей работе в сериале "Вице-президент" получила приз за лучшую женскую роль в комедийном телесериале. Среди остальных "телевизионных" итогов премии стоит отметить успех сериала "Корона": награды достались Клэр Фой, сыгравшей в первом сезоне молодую Елизавету II, и сыгравшему Уинстона Черчилля Джону Литгоу. Если возвращаться к кинематографу, премия SAG хоть и важная для оскаровских прогнозов "гадальная карта", но, повторимся, не безошибочная и уж точно далеко не единственная. Скажем, всего днем ранее "Ла-Ла Ленд" взял главную премию Американской гильдии продюсеров, а еще в оставшиеся до вручения "Оскаров" недели должны пройти наградные церемонии Гильдии кинорежиссеров и BAFTA. Причем в обоих последних случаях перечни номинантов в категории "Лучший фильм" опять-таки частично совпадают с оскаровским: на все три награды претендуют "Манчестер у моря", "Прибытие", "Лунный свет" и, разумеется, "Ла-Ла Ленд".(http://kommersant.ru/doc/...)

Donald Trump Was Dragged By Pretty Much Everybody At The SAG Awards

Ashton Kutcher kicked off the ceremony with a message in support of immigration after Friday’s executive order severely restricted blocked refugees and people from Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. Julia Louis-Dreyfus took a more explicit stance, calling the president’s actions “un-American,” and the Muslim “Moonlight” star Mahershala Ali was compelled to share a story about his faith. Others went after Trump more generally, and with a sense of humor. “I would like to go against the [grain] this evening and thank President Trump for making Frank Gallagher look normal,” said “Shameless” actor William H.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Calls Donald Trump's Muslim Ban 'Un-American'

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); Julia Louis-Dreyfus kept the political mood alive at the SAG Awards on Sunday, calling Donald Trump’s executive order blocking Muslims and refugees “un-American.”  Louis-Dreyfus, who won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series, skipped the standard thank-yous to address Trump’s recent political actions. She started on a lighthearted note: “Whether the Russians did or did not hack the voting of tonight’s SAG awards, I look out at the million or probably even a million and a half people in this room, and I say this award is legitimate and I won. I’m the winner. The winner is me. Landslide!” The “Veep” actress then spoke of her own experiences as the daughter of an immigrant. “My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France, and I am an American patriot, and I love this country,” she said. “I am horrified by its blemishes, and this immigrant ban is a blemish, and it is un-American.” Julia Louis-Dreyfus jokes by echoing Trump: “This award is legitimate and I won.” #SAGawards pic.twitter.com/mQB9nhPDuJ— Hollywood Reporter (@THR) January 30, 2017 The actress closed with the Writer’s Guild’s statement against the executive order, saying, “Our guilds are unions of storytellers who have always welcomed those from other nations, and of varying beliefs, who wish to share their creativity with America. We are grateful to them, we stand with them, we will fight for them.” Louis-Dreyfus is one of many stars who spoke out against Trump’s anti-immigration actions over the weekend.  function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_2'),onPlayerReadyVidible); -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

GOP’S OBAMACARE PROBLEM -- Jared Kushner’s Chinese deal -- CAMPBELL BROWN to Facebook -- WEEKEND READS -- Former Defense Secretary Robert and Becky Gates celebrate 50 years

NYT’S FRONT-PAGE, FIVE-COLUMN BANNER HEADLINE -- “PUTIN LED SCHEME TO AID TRUMP, REPORT SAYS” http://nyti.ms/2iP3Tqr ... NYT story http://nyti.ms/2i1LrsK … WaPo http://wapo.st/2iNmqps … Read the report http://nyti.ms/2inFMOD-- QUITE THE SENTENCE: NYT’s Scott Shane: “For the three agencies that produced the report -- the C.I.A., the F.B.I. and the National Security Agency -- this is a heart-stopping moment: They have just told their new boss that he was elected with the vigorous, multifaceted help of an adversary, the thuggish autocrat who rules Russia.” http://nyti.ms/2i3IEmc TOP STORY -- “Jared Kushner, a Trump In-Law and Adviser, Chases a Chinese Deal,” by NYT’s Susanne Craig, Jo Becker and Jesse Drucker: “On the night of Nov. 16, a group of executives gathered in a private dining room of the restaurant La Chine at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Midtown Manhattan. The table was laden with Chinese delicacies and $2,100 bottles of Château Lafite Rothschild. At one end sat Wu Xiaohui, the chairman of the Waldorf’s owner, Anbang Insurance Group, a Chinese financial behemoth with estimated assets of $285 billion and an ownership structure shrouded in mystery. Close by sat Jared Kushner, a major New York real estate investor whose father-in-law, Donald J. Trump, had just been elected president of the United States.“It was a mutually auspicious moment. Mr. Wu and Mr. Kushner -- who is married to Mr. Trump’s daughter Ivanka and is one of his closest advisers -- were nearing agreement on a joint venture in Manhattan: the redevelopment of 666 Fifth Avenue, the fading crown jewel of the Kushner family real-estate empire. Anbang, which has close ties to the Chinese state, has seen its aggressive efforts to buy up hotels in the United States slowed amid concerns raised by Obama administration officials who review foreign investments for national security risk.Now, according to two people with knowledge of the get-together, Mr. Wu toasted Mr. Trump and declared his desire to meet the president-elect, whose ascension, he was sure, would be good for global business.” http://nyti.ms/2jeMGWCGood Saturday morning and happy weekend. Here is TRUMP ON THE TWITTERS THIS A.M. -- @realDonaldTrump starting at 6:56 a.m.: “Intelligence stated very strongly there was absolutely no evidence that hacking affected the election results. Voting machines not touched!” … “Only reason the hacking of the poorly defended DNC is discussed is that the loss by the Dems was so big that they are totally embarrassed!” And then again, beginning at 10:02 a.m.: "Having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. Only 'stupid' people, or fools, would think that it is bad! We.....have enough problems around the world without yet another one. When I am President, Russia will respect us far more than they do now and....both countries will, perhaps, work together to solve some of the many great and pressing problems and issues of the WORLD!"-- MAYBE IT’S JUST US, BUT… We haven’t really seen a growing movement of people saying that Trump is an illegitimate president and should not be inaugurated.... ALSO: The intelligence agencies didn't weigh in on whether Russia impacted the outcome of the election. From the report: "We did not make an assessment of the impact that Russian activities had on the outcome of the 2016 election. The US Intelligence Community is charged with monitoring and assessing the intentions, capabilities, and actions of foreign actors; it does not analyze US political processes or US public opinion."INTERESTING POINT -- @geoffgarin: “Trump won Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin collectively by just 0.56% -- EVERYTHING affected the outcome of the election.”CAPITAL WEATHER GANG says D.C. will get a dusting to two inches of snow. http://wapo.st/2jeBB7RTHIS COULD BE A PROBLEM -- “GOP resistance grows to Obamacare repeal without replacement,” by Burgess Everett: “A growing number of Senate Republicans are resisting the idea of repealing Obamacare without a concrete replacement proposal, complicating GOP plans to move swiftly to undo the health care law. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) started the open, intra-party dissension this week when the libertarian-leaning senator urged Republicans to vote on a replacement plan at the same time they pass a repeal bill. He was followed a day later by hard-line conservative Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), then by the more centrist Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.) … At least a half-dozen GOP senators have now expressed public or private concerns about the party’s current trajectory. Their worry: Republicans will be blamed for wreaking havoc on the health care system and causing people to lose their coverage without any assurance they have a superior - or any - plan of their own.” http://politi.co/2inoAc8-- @RandPaul: “I just spoke to @realDonaldTrump and he fully supports my plan to replace Obamacare the same day we repeal it. The time to act is now.”-- THIS IS BECOMING A THING and that’s an issue. Why? Because Republicans are nowhere close to being ready to replace the law. One of two things will need to happen: Republicans will have to wait to repeal the law until they come up with a replacement package, or someone will have to emerge with a replacement package now. There is peril in both approaches, obviously. If Republicans wait, they risk the ire of their constituents, who they have been telling they’ll repeal the law on day one. And if they rush a replacement, they hand Democrats a potent attack: Republicans rushed and rammed a health care plan down our throats quickly.OUT AND ABOUT -- SPOTTED at the big POTUS goodbye party last night at the White House where Queen Latifah performed: Robert DeNiro, Sheryl Crowe, David Geffen, Connie Milstein, Susan Sher, Judge Neil Cohen, Julia Louis Dreyfus and Brad Hall, Stevie Wonder, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, Stephanie Cutter. Bruce Springsteen was spotted at the Jefferson Hotel, just up 16th Street near the White House.ABOUT THAT WALL…. -- “Hill GOP skeptical over Trump plan to force Mexico payment of border wall,” by CNN’s Manu Raju: “In interviews with CNN, a number of Republicans suggested that Trump’s claim amounted to wishful thinking, saying they believed the billionaire businessman would ultimately backtrack on one of his central campaign promises. ‘I doubt that they're going to pay for it,’ said Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, the longest-serving Senate Republican, referring to Mexico. ‘There’s a lot he could do if he wanted to (force Mexico's hand). In all honesty, I don't think that’s going to happen.’ Rep. Mike Coffman, a Colorado Republican, added: ‘I never thought that would happen. I thought it was a gimmick.’ And some conservatives warned Trump would face a backlash if he failed to follow through. ‘I'm for building a wall,’ said Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama. ‘And I'm for Donald Trump keeping his promise to the American people that Mexico pay for it.’ He added that he would be ‘disappointed’ if Trump failed to deliver.” http://cnn.it/2iNarrS-- WaPo’s Mike DeBonis: “Hill Republicans embrace building of border wall, despite cost” http://wapo.st/2iNk6yp-- Former Mexican President Vicente Fox -- @VicenteFoxQue:“TRUMP, when will you understand that I am not paying for that f***en wall. Be clear with US tax payers. They will pay for it.”IT’S OFFICIAL … TRUMP NAMES COATS DNI -- Statement from Donald Trump: “I’m very confident that Senator Dan Coats is the right choice to serve as Director of National Intelligence. Dan has clearly demonstrated the deep subject matter expertise and sound judgment required to lead our intelligence community. If confirmed as Director of National Intelligence, he will provide unwavering leadership that the entire intelligence community can respect, and will spearhead my administration’s ceaseless vigilance against those who seek to do us harm.”JOSH ROGIN in WaPo, “Mattis clashing with Trump transition team over Pentagon staffing”: “With only two weeks left before Inauguration Day and days before Mattis’s Senate confirmation hearing, most major Pentagon civilian positions remain unfilled. Behind the scenes, Mattis has been rejecting large numbers of candidates offered by the transition team for several top posts, two sources close to the transition said. The dispute over personnel appointments is contributing to a tenser relationship between Mattis and the transition officials, which could set the stage for turf wars between the Pentagon and the White House in the coming Trump administration.” http:[email protected]: “Great transition at DoD. Reports to contrary completely false and come from sources who do not have any knowledge of our transition efforts”FT. LAUDERDALE UPDATE -- “Airport gunman sent panicked passengers fleeing for lives,” by AP’s David Fischer in Fort Lauderdale, Florida: “Without a word, the gunman moved through the baggage claim picking off travelers until his handgun ran out of ammunition, leaving five dead and eight wounded in Fort Lauderdale’s airport. Panicked witnesses ran out of the terminal and spilled onto the tarmac, baggage in hand. Others hid in bathroom stalls or crouched behind cars or anything else they could find as police and paramedics rushed in Friday to help the wounded and establish whether there were any other gunmen …“The gunman was identified as 26-year-old Esteban Santiago of Anchorage, Alaska, who served in Iraq with the National Guard but was demoted and discharged last year for unsatisfactory performance. His brother said he had been receiving psychological treatment recently. A law enforcement official told The Associated Press that Santiago had walked into the FBI office in Anchorage in November to say that the U.S. government was controlling his mind and making him watch Islamic State videos. Agents questioned an agitated and disjointed-sounding Santiago and then called police, who took him for a mental health evaluation.” http://apne.ws/2i1Mx7GUNDER THE HOOD -- “Trump’s Attack-Dog Strategy Has Limits,” by NYT’s Glenn Thrush: “As a political underdog and now as president-elect, Donald J. Trump has employed the same brutal but effective go-to move when he’s tweeted or talked himself into an impasse: Attack the attacker. That aggressiveness served him well in the presidential campaign, and allowed him to muscle through scandals and self-inflicted management mistakes that would have scuttled a lesser politician. But Mr. Trump’s postelection effort to minimize intelligence assessments about Russia’s actions came to an abrupt end Friday after a detailed classified briefing from the nation’s top intelligence officials at Trump Tower and the release of an unclassified report concluding that the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin, had a ‘clear preference’ for Mr. Trump.” http://nyti.ms/2iP37tRSHOW ME THE MONEY -- “Trump insiders head for big K Street paydays,” by Isaac Arnsdorf and Ken Vogel: “A growing number of Donald Trump’s allies are rushing straight to K Street to cash in, despite the president-elect's pledge to restrain the industry, and their prized connections could draw huge paydays. Legitimate ties to Trump and his inner circle are exceedingly rare - and coveted - in a lobbying industry where many established GOP players kept their distance from Trump, or defiantly opposed him, during the bitter primary. Bona fide Trump insiders can expect offers of at least $450,000 a year downtown, according to a person familiar with efforts to recruit them as lobbyists.” http://politi.co/2iP1AE9FORMER DEFENSE SECRETARY ROBERT GATES AND HIS WIFE BECKY are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary today. Geoff Morrell emails: “When they started dating as graduate students at Indiana University, Bob told Becky that if she married him, ‘it would never be boring.’ Seems to have kept that promise!”PLAYBOOK INBOX – From President-elect Donald Trump with the subject line, “Win a trip to join me at the Inauguration”: “Contribute $3 BEFORE January 13 at 11:59pm to be automatically entered for a chance to win a trip to Washington, D.C., to join me for our Inauguration. The entire world will be watching that day. ... They will be watching a movement of free people reclaim their independence. They will be watching us unite as one people, saluting one American flag, ready to deliver real change for our country.” At the bottom of the email: “NO PURCHASE, PAYMENT, OR CONTRIBUTION NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN.” http://bit.ly/2i1OkgyTOP-ED – MARGARET CARLSON in the NYT, “The Life of a Disabled Child, From Taunts to Hate Crimes”: “I saw cruelty firsthand — and was guilty myself — as a child. Despite my protection, Jimmy was the last to be picked for a team, although he could swing a bat as badly as just about any other 6-year-old. ... Hitting another kid was punishable, but sidling up to Jimmy and subtly pinching him was not. ... It’s called politically correct and squishy liberal or nannyish to protect the weak among us — transgender children, minorities, the homeless, old people — but it’s really just human.” http://nyti.ms/2i1GMa5IN YOUR SPARE TIME -- “Here’s 520 Hours of Trump Interviews So You Can Fact-Check the President,” by Motherboard’s Jordan Pearson: http://bit.ly/2j1Y3lzON RUSSIA -- DAVID REMNICK on NewYorker.com, “Trump, Putin, and the Big Hack”: “Duma members cheered and applauded [after Trump won]. In the days to come ... Dmitri Kiselyov, the host of ‘News of the Week,’ a popular current-affairs show on state-controlled television, gloated over Trump’s victory and Barack Obama’s inability to prevent it. Obama, he said, was a ‘eunuch.’ Trump was an ‘alpha male’—and one who showed mercy to his vanquished rival. ‘Trump could have put the blonde in prison, as he’d threatened in the televised debates,’ Kiselyov said on his show. ‘On the other hand, it’s nothing new. Trump has left blond women satisfied all his life.’ Kiselyov further praised Trump because the concepts of democracy and human rights ‘are not in his lexicon.’ In India, Turkey, Europe, and now the United States, he declared, ‘the liberal idea is in ruins.’” http://bit.ly/2jmYSsrA NEW WASHINGTON -- “Obama and Clinton loyalists grapple with Trump recession,” by Sarah Wheaton: “The job market is about to get even more crowded for Washington Democrats, as thousands of Obama appointees join the hundreds of Clinton campaign staffers looking for employment. There’s rarely been less demand for their services. ... There are also the lobbying firms, trade associations and corporate government affairs offices that are pitching senior Obama aides’ resumes into the round file while scrambling to hire operatives with Republican connections. ... [F]or those who want to fight to keep President Barack Obama’s legacy from being erased, there aren’t a lot of places ready to pay them to do it. ‘It feels like there are just thousands of us trying to find a job, and there are no jobs,’ said Mira Patel, a longtime Clinton aide.” http://politi.co/2i1J5KwCABINET WATCH -- “New group boosts Pruitt nomination, adding to political backers,” by Alex Guillén and Esther Whieldon: “Energy companies and their executives have poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into political action committees run by or supporting President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the Environmental Protection Agency, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt. And now Pruitt is getting extra help from a new nonprofit that doesn't have to disclose its donors … The new group, Protecting America Now, warns that Pruitt’s confirmation ‘is not a certainty’ and says that millions of dollars are needed for advertising and social media campaigns to counter anti-Pruitt campaigning from ‘anti-business, environmental extremists,’ according to a flier obtained by POLITICO.“The flier assures donors that PAN’s 501(c)(4) status means individual and corporate donors can remain anonymous, and asks for contributions ranging from $25,000 to $500,000. Nonprofits registered as 501(c)(4)’s are not supposed to spend more than half their money on political activities. It is unclear precisely who is behind the campaign, but PAN’s activities come on the heels of separate efforts by oil, coal and other energy interests to funnel money into pro-Pruitt PACs in recent years. Legally, one of those PACs could continue to raise money even after Pruitt joins Trump's Cabinet.” http://politi.co/2i3MhIBFOR JERUSALEM -- “Meet Arnon Milchan, the Hollywood producer at the center of Netanyahu probe,” by L.A. Times’ Ryan Faughnder, Jeffrey Fleishman and Batsheva Sobelman: “His movie credits include classics such as ‘Pretty Woman’ and ‘JFK,’ as well as recent Oscar winners ‘The Revenant’ and ‘12 Years a Slave.’ But his back story reads more like an espionage thriller that has landed him at the center of a scandal shaking the Israeli government. The latest chapter in the strange saga of Israeli billionaire and veteran film producer Arnon Milchan arose this week over accusations that he -- in typical Hollywood mogul fashion -- gave thousands of dollars worth of cigars and champagne to Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife. Israeli police Thursday interrogated Netanyahu for the second time this week over accusations that he improperly accepted gifts from rich businessmen. Those individuals are said to include Milchan, 72, and others who gave gifts to the prime minister, according to Israeli media reports. Milchan, through a spokeswoman, declined to comment. Netanyahu’s lawyer dismissed the allegations after the three-hour questioning session, saying ‘any reasonable person knows that there is nothing remotely criminal involved when a close friend gives his friend a gift of cigars,’ according to Israeli new outlets.” http://lat.ms/2j1XJD0MEDIAWATCH – “Facebook Hires Campbell Brown to Lead News Partnerships Team,” by NYT’s Jim Rutenberg: “Facebook is turning to a former television news journalist to help smooth over its strained ties to the news media, which views it as both a vital partner and a potentially devastating opponent. It has hired Campbell Brown, a former NBC News correspondent and CNN prime-time host, to lead its news partnerships team, starting immediately. ... The addition of Ms. Brown comes as Facebook is struggling with its position as a content provider that does not produce its own content — that is, as a platform, not a media company.” http://nyti.ms/2i1KvYt ... Her Facebook post announcing the news http://bit.ly/2j07QZ3 -- “Donald Trump’s Condé Nast Meeting Draws Quiet Protest From Staff,” by WWD’s Alexandra Steigrad: “The off-the-record meeting on the 42nd floor drew what insiders described as a ‘small grassroots’ protest by some women at Condé, who chose to wear white instead of the fashion uniform of black. Wearing white is a nod to the Suffragette movement, and was also a veiled reference to the campaign of Trump’s presidential rival Hillary Clinton, who donned a white pantsuit when she clinched the Democratic nomination this summer.” http://bit.ly/2i454n9POLITICO PRO HIRES – CARRIE BUDOFF BROWN andMARTY KADY email the staff: “Adriel Bettelheim ... is joining as Health Editor here in DC. Adriel was managing editor for leadership and enterprise at CQ Roll Call, where he was also a podcast host. ... Lisa Zamosky, who had been helping us out short-term over the last few months, is joining as a part time Deputy Health Editor based in California. ...
