  • Don't Call Me Sweetheart: Ashley Judd Slams 'Everyday Sexism' at Airport

    NBC Philadelphia ^ | Caroline Carballeira
    You can call Ashley Judd a Golden Globe-nominated actress or a feverish Kentucky Wildcats fan — but don't call her "sweetheart." Judd took to Facebook Live earlier this week condemning employees at an unspecified airport after saying she experienced "everyday sexism" on her way through security Saturday.

    The Washington Times ^ | March 13, 2017 | Jessica Chasmar
    Ashley Judd says she’s “very sad” and “scared” after a man who took her picture at a Kentucky basketball game Saturday dared to mention that he likes President Trump. Ms. Judd, who famously spoke out against the president during the post-inauguration Women’s March on Washington, wrote a Facebook post about the “uncomfortable and scary” situation Saturday during the semifinal between the Kentucky Wildcats and Alabama Crimson Tide at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The actress described “an older man with white hair” who approached her at her seat and asked to take a picture. “I said ‘Yes.’ And before I could...
  • Ashley Judd: Trump’s Election Victory Worse than Being Raped

    Actress and left-wing activist Ashley Judd says the “tragedy” of Donald Trump’s election victory is far worse than an experience from her childhood in which she was raped. “It remains for me the worst thing that has ever happened to me in my lifetime,” Judd said of Trump’s successful election. “Raped as a child – bad. Re-raped by a political system that ordains a clown – really bad.” The Divergent star made the claim in a Huffington Post video titled, “Ashley Judd describes being triggered by Trump.” Sporting a so-called “Pussy Hat” popularized by feminist activists, Judd said the same...

    by Brooke Bosca | Top Right NewsOne day after President Trump's inaugural, left-wing groups organized nearly half a million people to a march in Washington, D.C. to protest Trump's election. Many celebrities spoke there, including Scarlett Johannson, Amy Schumer and Madonna. But by far the most controversial"speech" came from actress and author Ashley Judd. In a wild display many labeled "unhinged," Judd recited a 4-minute poem titled "Nasty Woman," which blasted the United States as racist, homophobic and unfair to women. She also virulently attacked Trump as a Nazi who wants gay kids to commit suicide, imprison and murder Blacks, and oppress...

    Remember when there was serious discussion about Ashley Judd running as the Dem candidate for senator from Kentucky against Mitch McConnell in 2014? Maybe cooler heads prevailed, realizing what they would have had on their hands! Check out Judd’s performance at the DC Women’s March today. After cutting off Michael Moore, she proceeded to histrionically channel a diatribe on behalf of a young woman from Tennessee that was laden with Hitler and Nazi references to Trump and the Republicans: “a man whose words are a death trap to America . . . I didn’t know devils could be resurrected, but...

    She’ll have to wait at least one election cycle if she decides to run, but Hollywood actress Ashley Judd is still flirting with Kentucky politics, telling Larry King a governorship sounds “interesting.” Judd, who came within a breath of challenging Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell in last year’s election, told talk show host Larry King that she is intrigued by the position of governor in Kentucky — laying out a potential platform. “Governor seems like an interesting position too, particularly in Kentucky, where we have a mono-economy, really abusive mineral extraction, pervasive poverty, low educational attainment,” Judd said on King’s...

    The Republican party is full of rebranding efforts these days. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has his. And the NRSC is working on appealing to the young and hip with their Buzzfeed-style website. Now there’s Sen. Mitch McConnell, the top Republican in the Senate, whose campaign is out with a new web video that splices inspirational lines from McConnell speeches and argues that the GOP is the party of opportunity for minorities and immigrants. But the video also has a decidedly Tea Party feel at times. It has gotten more than a million views in a day.

    The FBI will have more details soon on the investigation into how a strategy meeting of U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell campaign staff was secretly taped, according to McConnell’s campaign manager. Three main theories have emerged about how that audio recording was made: 1. That the office was bugged. But McConnell Campaign Manager Jesse Benton said Tuesday in a statement to the press that the staff had not found a bug in the office. 2. That someone in the room recorded the meeting and released it. Benton told Pure Politics on Wednesday he was confident that didn’t happen because the only...

    In what was probably the most reported on tweet in political history since the Anthony Weiner scandal, actress Ashley Judd’s run against U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell was put on hold in 140 characters. The brief media frenzy that ensued before she ended speculation could all come back to the commonwealth. Jonathan Miller, the former two-term state treasurer and one-time gubernatorial and congressional candidate, told Pure Politics that Judd might move back to her old Kentucky home. “I do really think she’s thinking about moving back to Kentucky permanently,” Miller said in an in-studio interview with Pure Politics. Miller said Judd...
  • Ashley Judd Bails on Kentucky Senate Race

    Actress Ashley Judd's next role will not be as a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in Kentucky. Judd said on Wednesday she has decided not to run in 2014 to try to unseat Republican Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, after considering such a candidacy for months. "After serious and thorough contemplation, I realize that my responsibilities and energy at this time need to be focused on my family," she wrote on Twitter. Judd and her husband, three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti, announced in January that they had decided to end their 11-year marriage. Judd, 44, considers Kentucky...

    Former President Bill Clinton has spoken to both Ashley Judd and Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes about the U.S. Senate race in Kentucky, encouraging them both to take a hard look at the race. ABC News has learned that Clinton encouraged Judd to enter the race and promised he would help her, according to several Kentucky political sources. That conversation happened sometime between the November election and President Barack Obama's second inauguration. Earlier this month Clinton met with Grimes, who is also weighing a bid, after he spoke at an event for former Kentucky Sen. Wendell Ford in...

    Mother Jones is shocked. The Huffington Post is shocked. The Left, everywhere, is shocked. It’s shocking. It’s really, really so terribly shocking. And appalling and disgusting. That in these times, here in the year of our deity (or no deity because that, too, is a valid life-path) 2013, terrible, misogynistic men like Steven Crowder still exist. This man-beast, this throwback to an unenlightened age, when women were forced to stay home and vacuum in high heels and pearls, clearly hates women, probably because he wasn’t breastfed hard enough. Steven Crowder is asked to speak at clandestine cabals like the Conservative...

    Former President Bill Clinton and former U.S. Sen. Wendell Ford have recently downplayed an Ashley Judd run for U.S. Senate seemingly opening national discussion for Secretary of State Allison Lundergan Grimes to potentially run. Ford, who served in the U.S. Senate from 1974-1998, said last week there may be a better Democratic candidate than Judd to face Sen. Mitch McConnell in 2014. “I think there’s maybe some other candidate out there that might be better — with political experience, and with some background. She’s a smart woman apparently,” Ford told Brandon Bartlett of 14-WFIE TV last week. Clinton would likely...

    **SNIP** The email is designed to look like a fundraising pitch for Judd from Democrats. "Ashley Judd needs your help. Despite the fact that she lives in Tennessee, Judd desperately wants to run for Senate in neighboring Kentucky. I know what you're thinking: how can a person who has said "Tennessee is home," that San Francisco is "my American city home" and that she "winters in Scotland" run for Senate in Kentucky?" the email reads. "Well, that's where you come in.," it says. Littered with links to "donate" to Judd's campaign, the email also includes photos of the Versailles, Kentucky...

    Hollywood cutie Ashley Judd is preparing to run for the Kentucky senate seat currently held by Mitch McConnell (R). The 44 year-old actress has no prior political experience, but exudes confidence she’ll win. “I’m pretty sure I’ll have the edge in the swimsuit and evening gown portions of the competition,” Judd bragged. “Talent-wise, I’m prepping by taking singing lessons from my Mom. The one iffy part I’m facing is the ‘poise question.’ There are so many worthy causes I’d like to promote during my reign that it”ll be hard to pick one.” Judd speculated that “McConnell’s ugliness is a definite...

    She’s not even a candidate yet. But the GOP opposition research machine is already in full froth over what it views as perhaps the juiciest 2014 target: Ashley Judd, who is exploring a challenge to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Republicans are homing in with glee on the actress and activist, picking apart her views and statements and compiling a thick compendium of speeches, writings and tweets. What they found: Judd may not have a legislative record, but she has left quite a paper trail. This early opposition research effort seems as much about scaring Democrats nationally about a...

    Gov. Steve Beshear said Tuesday he has now talked with actress Ashley Judd about how “seriously” she’s considering running for U.S. Senate in 2014 against Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell. While Beshear would not go into detail on the conversation, he did say that he is convinced that Judd is “seriously considering a race for United States Senate in the Democratic primary.” Beshear told reporters Tuesday at a bill signing that he thinks Judd could be an “effective and formidable opponent” against McConnell in a general election. Beshear has a good idea of what that takes having lost by double-digit...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) -- After two decades in front of the camera as an actress and more recently as an activist, Ashley Judd has been unguarded in her comments -- a candor which might cause complications if she runs for U.S. Senate from Kentucky. As Judd inches closer to a decision, her outspoken nature is yielding decades of pointed and controversial comments which Kentucky Democratic strategists concede are a gold mine for the campaign of potential opponent, U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R). Judd's essays and speeches are easily accessible on her website. In one, she criticized the tradition of a...
