The DREAMer President Barack Obama highlighted in his national address on immigration Thursday night said she felt "complete relief" when Obama laid out his plan to shield up to 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation and said she was surprised to hear him tell her story.
"It was completely unexpected. I didn't know that it was coming," Astrid Silva, an undocumented immigrant who came to the U.S. with her parents when she was four, said in an interview with CNN Friday.
Obama said Thursday that he will use his executive authority to focus immigration officials on "felons, not families. Criminals, not children."
Linda Traitz was either 18 or 19 when she met Bill Cosby, she said; she did not recall exactly. But she was fresh out of high school and new to the city, she said.
Cosby offered her a ride home but on the way, told her he'd like to swing by the beach with her in his Rolls Royce, she said. They parked, and he offered her drugs, an array of brightly colored pills, "to relax," she alleged.
She said no, a few times. "He kept offering me the pills," she alleged, and it made her feel uncomfortable. She claimed that he then groped her chest, pushing her down in the seat and toward the door, and tried to lay on top her.
"When you get a little more sophisticated, you realize there is no way of tricking anybody into doing things they don't want to do," Russell Brand says of controversial pickup artist Julien Blanc, who gives seminars that teach men aggressive tactics for pursuing women.
So, what is the secret of the well-known womanizer? Love everyone. And by everyone, he means all three New Day anchors: Alisyn, Michaela AND Chris.
Dick Cavett sat down with New Day to discuss his new book, "Brief Encounters: Conversations, Magic Moments, and Assorted Hijinks."
He says it came about because somebody pointed out that he had "an appropriate number [of stories published] to get out another book and hustle it and go on people's shows and pretend it's not 'plugola.'"
(Plugola? Is that spelled right?)
The stories, regardless of plugola, are fascinating. Cavett recounts experiences with the likes of James Gandolfini, John Lennon and more. Watch the interview for a taste of what's in the book.
