TRUMP TOOK ON A COMPLETELY HOSTILE PRESS YESTERDAY And if you haven't seen it, watch it here.
Though I thought some of what he said was dumb, I also thought some of what he said was true. The Press, on the other hand, showed EXACTLY what their agenda was by the continuing barrage of "When Did you Stop Beating Your Wife" questions. My favorite was when someone shouted out, "Do you support the Confederacy?". Really? Really? If you don't want to watch it, which I really think you should, you can read the transcript here.

THE LEFT IS FEEDING THE WHITE NATIONALISTS At least according to the Left's well known logic that being overly concerned about Islamic terrorists plays right into their hands as a recruiting tool.

THIS PICTURE FROM TWITTER MADE ME SORT OF CHUCKLE.

FEMINISM DROPS MALE SPERM COUNT! Okay, probably not, but male sperm counts have dropped considerably since 1973. Is it a coincidence that feminism really hit it's stride at about the same time??? I'm kidding, of course, but it is always funny to draw causation when there is none.
DOES THE SHOW SOUTH PARK HAVE A "RESPONSIBILITY" TO ATTACK TRUMP? The answer is a definite no, as the show has made it's mark by skewering pretty much everything on it's own terms. But when everyone else is doing it, don't expect South Park to do it, and they are catching all kinds of hell for not feeding the lefty angry army (which they have skewered in the past) what they want.
NEDERLAND PROVES IT TRULY IS FANTASYLAND As they reach for the holy grail of hippiness, which is running the city on 100% renewable energy by 2025. Sounds great, right? Except it's not attainable, according to scientists.
