Jason Chaffetz Reportedly Resigning From Congress

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) will step down from Congress later this year, Politico reported Thursday. Sources told The Wall Street Journal that Chaffetz, whose term was set to last until 2019, plans to leave office in June.

The news comes less than a month after Chaffetz, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, announced he would not seek re-election or ?be a candidate for any office in 2018.? He also hinted in an interview with Utah?s KSL Newsradio that he was considering leaving before the end of his term.

While he left open the possibility of running for governor of Utah in 2020, Chaffetz said he wants to spend more time with his family. Sources told Politico that he is considering joining Fox News.

In his role as House Oversight chair, Chaffetz has been near the epicenter of many of the issues surrounding President Donald Trump?s administration. Chaffetz was often criticized for being slow to investigate allegations against the president, including questions about his campaign?s ties to Russia and conflicts of interests related to Trump?s businesses.

It?s unclear how Chaffetz?s departure may affect the investigations into the Trump campaign. Some of the leading contenders to replace Chaffetz as House Oversight chair are former Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Rep. Jimmy Duncan (R-Tenn.) and Rep. Mike Turner (R-Ohio).

Wall Street Is Starting To Panic About Trump

Wall Street looked at the news coming out of Washington, D.C., and pushed the panic button Wednesday.

In the first day of trading after The New York Times reported that President Donald Trump had told former FBI Director James Comey to stop an investigation into disgraced former national security adviser Michael Flynn, stocks slid the most since Election Day. The Standard & Poor?s 500 index closed down 1.8 percent.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, an index that tracks a smaller group of companies, dropped 371 points or 1.77 percent. Bank stocks, which have surged since Trump?s election, were down 3.5 percent.

The prices of bonds and gold went up, as usually happens when other assets are volatile.

Before Wednesday?s slide, stocks were up 15 percent since Election Day, despite ho-hum jobs reports and growth numbers. Investors seemed to be betting that everything that could be good for stocks ? slashed tax rates for capital income and the wealthy; a huge infrastructure spending bill; bank regulations being gutted; a one-time tax holiday on overseas cash that companies could plow into huge dividends and share buybacks ? would happen. But an infrastructure spending bill and a massive tax reform package always seemed like long shots, and only look even more unlikely given the current turmoil in Washington.

The other assumption investors seemed to be making was that things that are bad for stocks ? restrictive immigration policies; trade wars; a foreign policy crisis; a constitutional crisis ? wouldn?t happen. But the chances of the last scenario becoming a reality rose dramatically Tuesday night with the report that Trump appeared to try to obstruct the FBI?s investigation into Flynn by telling Comey to drop the investigation before eventually firing him.

As stocks fell Wednesday afternoon, Bloomberg?s Joe Weisenthal tweeted: ?Investors lose faith in Trump agenda after stocks go down.? That may sound like a joke, and it is funny, but Weisenthal was serious and he makes a perceptive point about the basis of the Trump Rally: On Wall Street, the question of whether something is ?good? or ?bad? hinges entirely on how it affects stocks.

‘Walking Dead’ Star Reportedly Leaves Instagram Over Body Shaming

Another ?Walking Dead? star has had it with internet bullies.

Josh McDermitt recently left social media due to online abuse, and now Alanna Masterson has apparently done the same. The BBC reports that Masterson deleted her Instagram account over body shaming this week.

The actress, known as Tara Chambler on ?The Walking Dead,? gave birth to her daughter, Marlowe, before the latest season started filming. She went right back to work and was subjected to intense online abuse after being featured on an episode late last year.

Masterson then addressed the abuse in a lengthy Instagram post, telling people to ?grow the fuck up?:

Dear Instagram trolls, body shamers, and the men and woman who think it?s ok to comment on my weight: I hope that you don?t have children. And if you do, I hope you teach them about kindness and acceptance. I hope they learn that it isn?t ok to make fun of people or call people names. I hope one day YOU learn what it takes to be a parent. A kind, selfless parent. A working parent. A parent that puts themselves in someone else?s shoes. Maybe you can?t get it through your thick fucking skull, but nursing a baby for a year (and pumping in a van between takes, in the dead of summer in Georgia) is a lot of work, determination, and scheduling. So before you decide to make a comment about my chest being ?too large? or how ?fat? I?ve become, just know that this little girl got the best start to life. I wouldn?t have changed it for a second. I would?ve gladly continued to eat enough calories to produce milk for her little bones to grow. Also, grow the fuck up. Your mother should be ashamed for raising such a judgmental bully. I?m sure she knows how ?courageous? you must be for trolling and hiding behind your Iphone and computers. P.s. I would LOVE to see any man or woman give birth to a baby, nurse the baby, and then work 17 hour days and NAIL their own stunts. P.s.s. Be kind to each other. We need it now more than ever.

At the time, McDermitt came to his co-star?s aid, telling HuffPost, ?People need to chill the F out with the crap that they?re putting on the internet.?

The actor later left his social media accounts after receiving death threats for his character?s storyline on the show. It appears Masterson is following in her co-star?s footsteps, although the actress remains active on Twitter.

Like McDermitt said, the people doing this abuse really do need to ?chill the F out.?

HuffPost has reached out to Masterson?s reps for comment and will update this post accordingly.

17 Adorable Photos Of This Toddler Dressed As Famous Icons

A lot of little kids love to play dress-up, but 3-year-old Scout Larson takes it to the next level.

The Florida toddler dresses up as famous icons like Carrie Fisher, Frida Kahlo, David Bowie, and Malala Yousafzai and recreates some of their classic photos.

Scout?s mom, Ashley Jinks Larson, told HuffPost her daughter has always loved wearing different outfits and costumes and posing for photo shoots. She said the icons project started after her own mother was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. 

?I started doing the photos mostly to keep our minds busy while we were all dealing with a tough time,? the mom said. ?We shot mostly fierce women, because I wanted to replicate that strength in Scout. I wanted to have photos to show Scout that women are amazing and tough, just like her Nonnie (my mom). I?m happy to announce that my mom is cancer free now!?

Nothing says #girlpower quite like Frida Kahlo. #scoutstolemystyle

A post shared by Scout Penelope (@hello.scout) on

Ashley posts Scout?s icon photos on an Instagram account she runs. To recreate the famous looks, the mom uses a combination of clothes they already have, borrowed items and new purchases.

Scout is a big fan of fashion. ?Right now, her big thing is rain boots,? said Ashley. ?Rain or shine, she?s wearing her rainbow-striped rain boots.?

The mom said her daughter is ?full of personality? and ?wears her heart on her sleeve.?

#twinning with the infinitely amazing @davidbowie #scoutstolemystyle

A post shared by Scout Penelope (@hello.scout) on

?She is almost always laughing and her dimples are seriously the cutest thing ever,? she explained. ?I?d say my favorite thing about her, though, is her ability to make friends. Everywhere we go, she?s striking up a conversation.?

She added that the little girl is sweet and compassionate and tends to act like ?the little mommy? always looking out for her two brothers.

Ashley said she hopes people who see Scout?s photos see that girls can be ?fierce, funny, smart or whatever they decide they?d like to be.?

?In our society, it?s easy for women ? or anyone, honestly ? to think that beauty is the most important attribute a person can have,? the mom told HuffPost. ?I?m doing my best to teach Scout that intelligence and resilience are more important than looks.?

?Most of the time when I tell her that she?s beautiful, she corrects me and says ?I?m smart, too!?? Ashley added. ?She?s a pretty rad 3 year old!?

You know we had to twin with the gorgeous and hilarious @bettymwhite #ScoutStoleMyStyle #twinning #bettywhite

Michael Moore Vows To Defeat Donald Trump With New Documentary

Michael Moore pledged Tuesday that his newly revealed documentary about Donald Trump will finally defeat the president.

Production of ?Fahrenheit 11/9? ? named for the date Trump was declared president-elect ? has already begun in a ?cloak of secrecy,? according to a news release distributed to outlets. The film will explore Trump?s victory over Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and his turbulent tenure as the commander-in-chief.

?No matter what you throw at him, it hasn?t worked,? the filmmaker said in a statement. ?No matter what is revealed, he remains standing. Facts, reality, brains cannot defeat him. Even when he commits a self-inflicted wound, he gets up the next morning and keeps going and tweeting. That all ends with this movie.?

No release date is set, but producers Bob and Harvey Weinstein said Tuesday they had already purchased the rights, Entertainment Weekly noted. The Weinsteins served as executive producers on Moore?s Oscar-nominated ?Fahrenheit 9/11,? which examined the administration of former President George W. Bush and its war on terror after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Moore, who won an Oscar for his gun-violence documentary ?Bowling for Columbine,? also has a one-man show expected to open on Broadway this summer. He previously made the film ?Michael Moore in TrumpLand,? which he released in October.

Katy Perry Chopped Off Her Hair For The Most Relatable Reason

Katy Perry?s recent buzzcut made fans compare her look to Justin Bieber. But as she revealed in an interview on Tuesday, the singer didn?t necessarily want to go that short ? she simply had to. 

During an appearance on ?The Ellen DeGeneres Show,? the ?Chained To The Rhythm? songstress explained the inspiration between her new ?do. 

?I did it about a month and change ago,? Perry said, before turning to speak to the studio audience. ?I don?t know if you?ve ever dyed your hair blonde ? and too blonde ? sometimes your hair falls out when you go too blonde. So, that?s the way I handled it.? 

The singer then said that her hair falling out (and subsequent haircut) was all a part of the universe?s plan. Plus, she said also gotten a few nice compliments on the cut. 

?People are saying, ?Now you can really see the beauty of your face,? Perry said, waving her hand toward Ellen?s face. ?Now I can really see how beautiful you are.? 

Sort of an awkward compliment, but nowhere near as awkward as Ellen forgetting the singer?s brief marriage to Russell Brand. Whoops!
