According to Wapo’s Robin Givhans, Melania Trump’s coat is “ridiculous.” But Hillary Clinton is a style icon ? OK, got it. Whatever… Via Federalist. You’ve likely noticed that many in the media are a bit emotionally invested in defeating Donald Trump. Even so, this headline from the Washington Post takes things to dramatic new journalistic lows:…. But in a non-partisan way, Clinton’s proximity to the presidency has invited designers to reconsider the relationship that women have to power and how it manifests in attire and style. Designers have responded in ways that have been inventive, charming and reassuring. They have refused to be caught up in all the old clichés of polished jackets and below-the-knee skirts. And they are thinking...

Confused Libs. And I think I just repeated myself. 🙂 Via NY Post. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has been named WholeFoods Magazine’s person of the year. No, not that Whole Foods. The popular grocery chain sent out dozens of tweets this week clearing up the confusion and emphasizing that the publication has no affiliation with its company. It was responding to outraged shoppers who have been rebuking the grocer on social media with tweets like, “SHAME ON YOU!,” “despicable,” and “What in the world were you thinking?” “I love you, but I cannot stomach this,” one user wrote. “How awful.” Some customers even pledged a lifelong boycott of the store…. Last week, the magazine featured McConnell on its...

That awkward moment when Trump Derangement Syndrome makes your mag look really foolish. Fake news gonna fake! pic.twitter.com/ykmlenbFLi — Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) November 28, 2019 Via NY Post. President Trump slammed Newsweek over its story on his Thanksgiving plans, which it said included “tweeting, golfing and more,” though he ended up making a surprise visit to US troops in Afghanistan. “I thought Newsweek was out of business?” the president wrote along with a retweet of his son Donald Trump Jr.’s photo of the commander-in-chief serving Thanksgiving dinner to the service members…. The writer began the story by writing, “As with any other day of the year, Trump will probably be tweeting, or expressing his opinions in another way.”…. In...

Definitely a contender for the 2019 Darwin Awards. Via NY Post. This guy is no Clark Kent. An on-the-lam UK thief “disguised” himself with a pair of black-rimmed glasses — but local cops saw right through his ploy, according to a new report. David Springthorpe, 30, who was wanted for a number of shoplifting offenses and breaching a court order, was busted this week “after a chase” when cops spotted the now-bespectacled suspect, authorities posted to Facebook….

Memo to would-be cat smugglers: Do not brag — on Instagram — about how you tricked an airline into allowing your fat furry feline to board the plane. Via NYT. A man who tricked his way into getting his overweight cat into the passenger cabin of a plane has been penalized by a Russian airline. Aeroflot stripped the passenger, Mikhail Galin, of his air miles and removed him from their frequent-flier program after he bragged on social media about sneaking his hefty pet onboard by switching him for a lighter cat during check-in…. The airline told Agence France-Presse that it opened an investigation after Mr. Galin’s post caught their attention, and that it eventually found video surveillance footage of the...

I think the name of their vessel is the ‘SS Virtue-Signaler’… or maybe ‘SS Ship Of Fools’… Or something… Via Red State. ….Santiago was set to host the UN Climate Conference and an intrepid group of climate activists, otherwise known as people without jobs, decided that instead of simply flying, they’d waste nearly two months sailing to their destination. Their journey began on October 2nd, starting in Amsterdam. Then something hilarious happened. The conference got cancelled while they were a little over halfway there. A group of climate activists crossing the Atlantic by sailboat to a UN summit in Chile were shocked to learn the event was canceled — four weeks into their grueling voyage https://t.co/FgFJCbl3xY — CNN (@CNN) October...

Kamala Harris is now in tenth place among the 2020 Dem candidates, and she stands at 2% support among Democratic caucus voters. Not surprising, given her many dumb comments, such as this one. But here’s the real shocker: A CNN host actually asked a Democrat a good question! Via Daily Caller. CNN’s Anderson Cooper stumped Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris on Friday night when he asked her what specific laws President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani has broken…. Harris said Giuliani “has clearly broken many laws,” adding that his actions are “further evidence of corruption” by the Trump administration and that they violate an “extraordinary number of rules and ethical laws.” When Cooper asked Harris what specific laws she...

For a smarty-pants Harvard law prof, this is a really dumb move. How about “I’m sorry I misspoke” ? Then we would not be talking about yet another of her invented stories. Or maybe she could just explain that she was only 1/1,024th discriminated against. Via Daily Caller. 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren doubled down on her claim that she was fired from a teaching job for being pregnant Monday. The Massachusetts senator said Monday in an exclusive interview with CBS News that she stands by her previous statements that she was pushed out for being pregnant in 1971…. However, Warren recounted the same story in 2007 but said she did not have the proper credentials to continue...

Is Hillary angling for a new career as a performance artist? And why was she sitting at a mock Oval Office desk when she read her e-mails? Wouldn’t it have been more authentic to read the e-mails in a bathroom…next to her server? Via Washington Examiner. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sat at a replica Resolute Desk to read her old emails for an hour as part of an Italian art exhibit. Clinton traveled to the Venetian Teatro Italia in Venice on Tuesday to become a part of the exhibit created by artist Kenneth Goldsmith. Titled “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails,” the exhibit featured a mock Oval Office Resolute Desk with more than 60,000 pages of Clinton’s leaked emails...

Kamala Harris claims she didn’t hear the man’s comments, so why is she apologizing? And why would she compliment the questioner’s statement (“Well said!”) if she did not fully hear him? Via WaPo. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., claimed Saturday that she didn’t hear an audience member at a New Hampshire town hall Friday call President Trump “mentally retarded” and apologized for laughing after the comment. “When my staff played the video from my town hall yesterday, it was upsetting,” Harris tweeted Saturday. “I didn’t hear the words the man used in that moment, but if I had I would’ve stopped and corrected him. I’m sorry. That word and others like it aren’t acceptable. Ever.” Audience member: “What are you going...

Nice going, Mayor Bill “Worst-Mayor-Ever-In-The-History-of-NYC” de Blasio, using your personal security detail from the NYPD to move your daughter’s furniture back to Gracie Mansion. Because apparently, rules are for the ‘Little People,’ not for the Elite. Via NYDN. City conflict of interest rules clearly bar Mayor de Blasio and his family from ordering police detectives to help move Chiara de Blasio out of an apartment in Brooklyn, ethics experts told the Daily News. City law says it is a violation of the city charter “for any public servant to use City letterhead, personnel, equipment, resources, or supplies for any non-City purpose.” A former high-ranking official with the city Conflicts of Interest board batted down the excuse de Blasio spokeswoman Freddi...

Wait, I thought deporting anyone from the USA was racist and hateful and un-American and horrible and ‘not who we are’ etc. Or something. Please, Michigan, vote this Trump-hating Israel-bashing horror out of office in 2020. Via Fox News. President Trump spent the last week battling accusations of racism for his tweets suggesting liberal lawmakers “go back” where they came from, fix things and return to “show us how it’s done.” But it turns out one of his targets — Rep. Rashida Tlaib — had a similar, even harsher, message for him during the 2016 campaign. “Deport this a–hole!” Tlaib, D-Mich., tweeted in December 2015, linking to a story about then-presidential candidate Trump’s highly controversial call for “a total and...

No, Sandy’s little ‘word salad’ lecture about the cultural context of cauliflower is not from The Onion. No justice, no peas! Or something. Via Washington Examiner. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., explained Sunday that a “core component” of her Green New Deal legislation is ending “colonial” attitudes that dominate community gardens. “What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” the freshman congresswoman said in an Instagram video while exploring a Bronx community garden. “So that’s really how you do it right. That is such a core component of the Green New Deal is having all of these projects make sense in a cultural context, and it’s an area that we get the...
