And You Thought “Pharma-Bro” Was an Idiot

The amazing part to me here – Is WHO is supplying this guy investment money? I mean …Usually investors avoid walking lawsuits like thei like the plague.

Somebody also needs to look into the judge who let this dude go.

‘N**ger, n**ger, n**ger’: Tech bro CEO insulted employees and beat multiple women, says lawsuit

A new lawsuit alleges that Silicon Valley CEO Gurbaksh Chahal routinely used racial slurs when speaking to subordinates, physically attacked two women and fired a male employee who tried to prevent him from striking a third woman.

The Daily Beast reported Sunday that Chahal is the subject of a lawsuit which alleges that he called workers his “n**gers” and took out his violent rages on employees. Two other pending lawsuits against Chahal accuse him of misleading investors, hiring women based on their looks and making death threats against one employee of his multiple tech companies.

In 2013, Chahal briefly stepped down as CEO of his ad tech company RadiumOne after a vicious attack on his then girlfriend in a San Francisco penthouse.

Police examined surveillance video and determined that during the attack, Chahal punched and kicked the woman he was dating 117 times. He then tried to smother her with a pillow for 20 seconds. Court records show that microphones caught Chahal telling the woman “I’m going to kill you” four times as he beat her.

Nonetheless, he resumed his position at RadiumOne after he was able to get the 47 felony counts against him dropped by a judge who ruled that the video was inadmissible as evidence. Chahal crowed online that he was innocent and accused his former partner of having sex with other men for money.

The RadiumOne board ousted Chahal, but he formed a new company called Gravity4 and has continued to helm new ventures including trying to raise $100 billion to start a new Bitcoin-like crypto-currency, the Daily Beast’s Kelly Weill wrote. Former reality TV star and hotel heiress Paris Hilton has given her imprimatur to the project.

“He’s the biggest liar I’ve ever met in my life,” said one former employee to the Daily Beast.

Gravity4 chief of staff Ali Al-Ansari filed a new suit alleging that Chahal is shockingly sexist, detailing a series of remarks he made against women’s rights and equal pay for men and women.

Other pending lawsuits accuse Chahal of forcing alcohol on women, attacking another girlfriend and then pressuring an employee to help him evade charges, as well as asking male coworkers if women job applicants’ breasts were attractive enough to hire.

Al-Ansari alleges that Chahal described to him in lurid detail how he wanted to further harm the two women he’d attacked, who he saw as trying to “ruin his life.”

The final straw for Al-Ansari came in a Miami apartment when Chahal attempted to attack a woman and Al-Ansari physically prevented the assault.

According to the lawsuit, “Al-Ansari was forced to interpose himself between the woman and Chahal and physically intervened to defend this woman to block Chahal from hitting her. Chahal nonetheless managed to hit this woman. Al-Ansari repeatedly told Chahal ‘don’t touch her!’”

When Al-Ansari took out his phone and began to record the altercation, Chahal reportedly fired him on the spot. The lawsuit further alleges that after the firing, Chahal tried to illegally access Al-Ansari’s personal laptop and destroy incriminating data.

Chahal was freely racist and open about his contempt for black people, the lawsuit says. He used the “N-word” frequently and was resentful and defiant when called out about it.

“I’m not going to stop the n-word,” Chahal said in a discussion transcribed in the suit. “Dude, do you want me to go ahead and say n**ger, n**ger, n**ger? I don’t give a fuck. Martin Luther King might not like that, but he’s a n**ger, too.”

Number of CEOs Ditching Chumph Panels Grows in Response to Charlottesville

The Chumph – as usual – isn’t making any friends hitting back at Corporate leaders.

Never having been in those circles, he really doesn’t realize the ties, relationships, and mutual respect between the small group of folks at that level.

“Shooting back” in this case will likely have some unexpected consequences.

Don’t expect the big government contractors to bail. The GE’s, Lockheed Martin, United Technologies, and Harris’ are going to stay due to the potential for huge government contracts.

Trump Cites ‘Grandstanders’ After Another Executive Leaves His Business Council

Scott Paul, the president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, is adding his name to the list of executives who’ve resigned from President Trump’s manufacturing council, prompting new criticism from the president.

“I’m resigning from the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative because it’s the right thing for me to do,” Paul wrote in a tweet Tuesday.

Even before Paul posted about his resignation on Twitter, the president beat him to the tweet, writing some 15 minutes earlier, “For every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Council, I have many to take their place. Grandstanders should not have gone on. JOBS!”

By departing, Paul follows in the footsteps of three CEOs — Merck’s Kenneth Frazier, Under Armour’s Kevin Plank and Intel’s Brian Krzanich — who resigned from the council on Monday in the wake of the president’s heavily criticized handling of the deadly violence that erupted at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend.

Frazier said in announcing his decision, “I feel a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism.”

The council was formed back in January, when Trump launched the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative as part of his effort to create American jobs. At the time, the White House said the president would be “meeting with some of the world’s most successful and creative business leaders to share their experiences and gain their insights.”

Tesla founder Elon Musk left the manufacturing council and another presidential advisory group in June, citing his disagreement with Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate accord.

Here is the list of 28 business leaders the White House said were named to the council on Jan. 27 — we’ve used dashes to highlight the executives who have resigned:

Andrew Liveris, The Dow Chemical Company

Bill Brown, Harris Corporation

Michael Dell, Dell Technologies

Trump attacks black CEO who resigned from White House council over response to Charlottesville protests

Kenneth Frazier resigned from Trump’s American Manufacturing Council after he felt Trump failed to denounce racism

It took President Donald Trump less than an hour to criticize Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier for resigning Monday from the White House’s American Manufacturing Council. Meanwhile, it’s been two days since white nationalists and neo-Nazis overtook a college town in Virginia, and Trump has yet to publicly condemn them.

Frazier, an African-American, announced on Twitter Monday that it was Trump’s inadequate response to Charlottesville that forced him to resign from the president’s council.

“Our country’s strength stems from its diversity and the contributions made by men and women of different faiths, races, sexual orientations and political beliefs,” Frazier said in a statement. “America’s leaders must honor our fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal.”

“As CEO of Merck and as a matter of personal conscience, I feel a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism,” Frazier added.

Trump wasted little time Monday to hit back at Frazier for his moral stance.

Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President’s Manufacturing Council,he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!

Letting Your Mouth Get Your Rear End in Trouble – Under Armour’s CEO

Joining the list of the stupid, Under Armour’s CEO Keven Plank came out supporting the Chumph. The kickback was immediate, as a number of the company’s spokes people came out to reject any endorsement of Putin’s Bitch. Plank’s comments go 180 degrees against many of the athletes who use his products, as well as many of the spokespeople. Dumb move – alienating his customer base.

Looks like the company may be in the market for a new CEO shortly…Call me.

Under Armour endorsees speak out against Plank’s comments on Trump

Looks like Under Armour’s tough week is just getting tougher.

More and more athletes on the Baltimore company’s roster spoke critically on Thursday of CEO Kevin Plank’s recent comments complimenting the Trump administration. In the past 24 hours, Stephen Curry, Misty Copeland and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have all issued statements distancing themselves from the CEO’s comments.

“I have always appreciated the great support and platform that Under Armour has given me to represent my community, gender, and career on the world stage,” said Copeland in a Facebook post Thursday. “However, I strongly disagree with Kevin Plank’s recent comments in support of Trump as recently reported.”

The first African-American woman to be principal ballerina with the American Ballet Theater, Copeland said she has never backed away from openly speaking about the importance of diversity and inclusion and it’s important that her sponsors share that belief.

“I have spoken at length with Kevin privately about the matter, but as someone who takes my responsibility as a role model very seriously, it is important to me that he, and UA, take public action to clearly communicate and reflect our common values in order for us to effectively continue to work towards our shared goal of trying to motivate ALL people to be their best selves.”

Around the same time, Johnson put out a statement on his social media accounts calling Plank’s comments “divisive.”

“I appreciate and welcome the feedback from people who disagree (and agree) with Kevin Plank’s words on CNBC, but these are neither my words, nor my beliefs. His words were divisive and lacking in perspective. Inadvertently creating a situation where the personal political opinions of Under Armour’s partners and its employees were overshadowed by the comments of its CEO,” Johnson said.  “I partner with brands I trust and with people who share my same values. That means a commitment to diversity, inclusion, community, open-mindedness and some serious hard work. But it doesn’t mean that I or my team will always agree with the opinion of everyone who works there, including its executives.”

It’s been a rough few days for Plank. The company’s fourth-quarter results were poor, its CFO quit and its bonds were downgraded. Then, after he told CNBC’s “Fast Money Halftime Report” that President Trump “is a real asset for the country,” Under Armour’s prize endorsement asset, Stephen Curry, came out against that assessment of Trump.

“I agree with that description,” Curry told Mercury News, “if you remove the ‘et’ from asset.”

The NBA MVP and face of Under Armour’s basketball shoe went on to say that he has spoken with Plank regarding his comments, saying he spent “all day” on the phone with the company. Curry has an endorsement deal with Under Armour through 2024.

While Curry is standing with Under Armour,  he is putting the company on notice.

“If I can say the leadership is not in line with my core values, then there is no amount of money, there is no platform I wouldn’t jump off if it wasn’t in line with who I am. So that’s a decision I will make every single day when I wake up. If something is not in line with what I’m about, then, yeah, I definitely need to take a stance in that respect.”

Meg Whitman – Carly FIorina “Unqualified”

Ouch! This one is going to leave a mark. Fellow CEO (former in Carly’s situation) Meg Whitman – who is credited with building EBay and is currently President of Hewlett Packard…

AND Fellow Republican…

Unloads on Republican Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina!

Meg Whitman

HP CEO Says That Carly Fiorina Is Not Qualified To Be President

“Literally having some experience in politics is probably an important criteria,” Meg Whitman says.

Current Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman doesn’t think former HP CEO Carly Fiorina is qualified to be president because the Republican contender has no political experience.

“I just think literally having some experience in politics is probably an important criteria for the highest office in the land,” Whitman told CNN over the weekend. “I think it’s very difficult for your first role in politics to be president of the United States. I think having experience in the Senate or as the governor of a state is really important. It’s just hard to be dropped down in Washington, D.C. never having experience in politics before.”

Indeed, only three U.S. presidents have landed the job without some experience in elected office. However, those three — Ulysses Grant, Zachary Taylor and Dwight Eisenhower — all served in top leadership positions in the U.S. military.

Whitman’s been running HP since 2011, when she took on the role after a run of disastrous leadership at the struggling computer maker, and she is now preparing to split the company into two publicly traded entities. She’s probably most well-known for leading eBay from a startup to a booming auction site, but she did try her hand at politics in a failed run for governor of California. That’s another thing she has in common with Fiorina, who lost a bid for senator in California in 2010.

Whitman also happens to be backing New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in his bid for the presidential nomination. He’s not exactly the leading candidate for the role, and Whitman has declined to say who she will ultimately support in next year’s election.

Good thing Carly got that “Get out of Dodge” Golden Parachute…

The only Board I can see hiring her after her serial lies and “reality dysfunction” this election…Would be a circular firing squad.
