Nancy Sinatra puts on boots and walks all over CNN. After CNN published an article claiming she was unhappy about Trump using her father’s song at his inauguration, she corrected them by asking the question we’ve all been asking for a long time: “Why do you lie, CNN?”
Cabinet confirmation comparison: Obama 2009 versus Trump 2017. How obstructionist and petty are Democrats being? Trump will start his presidency with only two confirmed cabinet members: James Mattis, Secretary of Defense, and John Kelly, head of Homeland Security. They can hold their first cabinet meeting in a toilet stall. In 2009, Obama had seven cabinet members on his first day and they approved Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State on the second day. As Sen. John Cornyn says, that was “a demonstration of the good faith and the civility that ordinarily extends in the peaceful transition of power from one president to another.”
Taliban bomb maker accidentally blows himself and four sons to hell. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. Do not get 72 virgins. (But cheer up: you might win a posthumous Darwin Award.)
School fires employee for correcting student’s grammar. Egads! what was she thinking? You can’t hurt a young man’s feelings like that! So what if he’s functionally illiterate? Doesn’t she know the Golden Rule of educators: “Don’t hurt the snowflakes”?
Apprentice contestant files defamation lawsuit against Trump. The contestant is female, this is about an incident that supposedly occurred in 2007, and the lawsuit was filed three days before Trump’s inauguration… so what was our first clue the slimeball lawyer involved is Gloria Allred?
Reason number one million (or so) why mainline Protestant churches are dying. The pastor at All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena will no longer pray for the president by name because the word “Trump” is a “trauma trigger” and might “jeopardize the safety of the congregation.”
Trump administration thinking about kicking press out of White House. “They are the opposition party,” one Trump official says. “I want ’em out of the building. We are taking back the press room.”
Intelligence officials undercutting Trump with Israel. “American intelligence officials allegedly warned their Israeli counterparts not to share intelligence with Washington once Donald Trump becomes president of the United States,” their reasoning being that Trump might share the intelligence with Russia.
One final screwjob from the outgoing pretender-in-chief. With the stroke of his anti-liberty pen, Obama ended a long-standing policy of giving any Cuban who reached America automatic asylum. Now they will be sent back to Cuba to face prison or death. (Syrian Muslims, on the other hand, Mr. Obama will continue to welcome.)
Rosie O’Donnell wants the military to impose martial law. Why? To stop the inauguration of Donald Trump.
Leftwing Dutch woman denied Swiss passport because she’s “annoying.” She does look sexy in that cow bell though.
The student behind the KoolKidsKlanKKK tweet at Baltimore high school is… (drum roll please) a 14-year-old African American girl. So yet another bogus hate crime.
The perfect example of defense spending under Obama. The Army has a “proposal solicitation” for bullets and casings that are “biodegradable composites with embedded seeds” so spent ammunition will grow into “environmentally-friendly plants.”
Fort Lauderdale terrorist is Salafist Sunni Muslim. Why are we not hearing this from the mainstream media?
Jill Stein held a “Count My Vote” rally in Madison. Quick question: if nobody except your mom and a bunch of journalists show up, is it still called a rally?
Study: liberal churches dying, conservative churches thriving. An early nominee for 2017 No Shit Sherlock Award.
New York Times “unexpectedly” comes out in favor of filibuster. After being against the filibuster in 2013, for the filibuster in 2005, and against the filibuster in 1995. (You get a prize if you figure out the logic behind that flip-flopping.)
