Liberal mainstream media outlets have been fawning all over “Star Wars” actor Billy Dee Williams — he played Lando Calrissian in “Empire Strikes Back” — for using gender-fluid pronouns and confessing that he has both masculine and feminine sides.

The comments in question were made by Williams in an interview conducted by Esquire magazine.

Here are the details from TheBlaze:

“I say ‘himself’ and ‘herself’ [when referring to himself] because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine,” he admitted. “I’m a very soft person. I’m not afraid to show that side of myself.”

Williams, who gave the interview ahead of the Dec. 20 release of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” also said that this isn’t earth-shattering news, because he “never tried to be anything except myself.”

“I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn’t take himself or herself seriously,” he explained.

Many news outlets have been absolutely gushing about Williams comments. Here’s a small sample of what’s being said.

NY Daily News said “‘Star Wars’ actor Billy Dee Wiliams comes out as gender fluid.”

TooFab, a publication owned by celebrity tabloid TMZ said, “‘Star Wars’ Billy Dee Williams Comes Out as Gender-Fluid: ‘I See Myself as Feminine as Well as Masculine.'”

Vanity Fair added, “Billy Dee Williams Describes His Gender Fluidity in Interview.”

Entertainment Tonight also got on board with the praise with their headline which stated, “Billy Dee Williams Celebrated After Coming Out as Gender Fluid.”

Actor Donald Glover portrayed Calrissian in the film, “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” and stated around the time of the movie’s release that he believed the character to be pansexual.

Glover said, “[Calrissian is] coming on to everybody [in the films]. I mean, yeah, whatever. He’s like having like a ’70s swing — yeah. It just didn’t seem that weird to me ’cause I feel like if you’re in space it’s kind of like, the door is open! It’s like, no only guys or girls. No, it’s anything. This thing is literally a blob. Are you a man or a woman? Like, who cares? Have good time out here.”

One of the writers for “Star Wars” confirmed Glover’s comments right after they went viral.

Resistance Rises Against Michigan Governor As Biden Running Mate Decision Draws Near

Very interesting…

It seems that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is watching her chances of being chosen as Joe Biden’s vice president for the upcoming election are getting slimmer by the minute as more and more resistance to her governorship rises up after two very unflattering stories emerge about her and how she’s handled the coronavirus pandemic in her state. However, she’s not alone in scrutiny. Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico is also being criticized for her handling of the crisis. The criticisms of both women have happened simultaneously, after reports emerging detailing how they violated their own lockdown rules for personal benefit. Here are the details from The Washington Examiner: In April, Lujan Grisham reportedly purchased jewelry from a close friend who runs a store in Albuquerque despite issuing an order just days before, asking that New Mexicans only leave home for food and medical supplies. “We are in really tough financial times as a state. It mirrors the incredible, personal sacrifices that happen every single day because people have limited their ability to work, telecommuting, and many people, in fact, have lost their jobs,” she said on April 3. Lujan Grisham’s office maintains that she did not violate the order because the transaction was “entirely contact-free,” as Lujan Grisham had a friend pick up the purchased piece of jewelry at the owner’s home. Republicans in the state noted that curbside pickup from stores wasn’t allowed until May 1, weeks after Lujan Grisham bought the jewelry. The New Mexico Republican Party posted up a tweet on Wednesday saying, “Our Governor is the latest Democrat to decide that the rules they impose on their citizens to address the COVID-19 pandemic don’t apply to her. A bombshell report reveals that the governor violated her own stay-at-home order to stock up on some high-end…

Lindsey Graham Suggests It’s ‘Not A Bad Idea’ For Senate Judiciary Committee To Hold Hearings On Police Violence

Published

Sen. Lindsey Graham has come out and stated that the idea for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold hearing regarding the subject of police violence against black citizens isn’t a bad idea. This suggestion comes after the violent and tragic death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd, after a law enforcement officer put his knee against his neck while attempting to detain him. As of right now, the city of Minneapolis is full of angry residents who have taken to the street, rioting and looting over the incident, burning some local businesses to the ground. Graham made an appearance on the Hugh Hewitt radio program on Thursday where he was asked whether or not the Senate Judiciary Committee should look into instances of police brutality against black citizens. Graham answered that this is something he most definitely intends to pursue. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “I think a lot of African Americans have a legitimate claim to a hearing on the issue of police violence against African American men in these situations. What do you think, Senator Graham?” Hewitt asked. “You know, that’s not a bad idea at all,” Graham responded while adding that he does not want to interfere with the investigation into the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who was pronounced dead at a hospital after a Minneapolis police officer pinned him down by placing a knee on the back of his neck for approximately eight minutes until he became unresponsive. Graham suggested that folks need to take a few steps back from things and really look at the overall picture of the incidents of police violence against black citizens and the frequency with which they keep occurring. “To take a 30,000-foot view of things: Why does this happen? How often is it? Is it…
