You Got Exactly What You Booked With Michelle Wolf

Perhaps, the way to get Trump to come to next year’s WHCD, and get all of his staff (Whatever is left of it by then), they need to take some advice from Tina Fey, and hire a child’s choir.

Anybody that watched the White House Correspondents’ Dinner probably watched Michelle Wolf’s appearance during the event. The correspondent from The Daily Show with Trevor Noah hit on a variety of issues plaguing the current political and social climate, including the #MeToo movement and made fun of the way you can’t shut her up unless you are Michael Cohen and can wire her money under her porn star name, Reince Preibus.

Then, she got a little more “controversial” with it and lamented that if teachers had guns, they’d be able to turn them in for more useful things, like school supplies. That wasn’t even the tip of the iceberg of the controversial statements; that was reserved for one Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was sitting front row to a blistering critique delivered by Michelle Wolf. It included her southern roots, the track record of truthfulness, and her appearance. Taking a line from the Maybelline commercials, this was the one that hit home for most:

"I actually really like Sarah. I think she's very resourceful. But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye," Wolf said. "Like maybe she's born with it, maybe it's lies. It's probably lies."

You might want to apply some ointment to that burn, Sanders. They always say, “Truth is often said in jest.”

Anyways, after Wolf’s appearance at the WHCD, she was at the receiving end of a lot of hateful tweets and other social media missives. As usual, most of it came from the right-wing, most of which are somewhat hypocritical coming from Trump supporters. Of course, Trump weighed in on his favorite social media platform, Twitter:

Like he did last year for the first WHCD under his presidency, Trump did not attend. He was at a campaign rally in Washington, Michigan.

As for the negative reactions to Michelle Wolf: What did you expect to happen? Some soft, uninspired trash like what you hear from customer service representatives? No, you booked A COMEDIAN. Not only did you book a comedian, you booked A CORRESPONDENT FROM A LIBERAL-LEANING SHOW.

I have to give the likes of Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway some credit; they did not up and leave after being roasted. They stayed and handled it like adults. A sad way to give credit, but the bar has been set so low in 2018 America that credit has to be given for simple acts of maturity. I only wish the likes of Matt Schlapp, who left along with his wife, would have handled it with the same maturity. Instead of crying about “elites mocking them.”

As much as I don’t condone tit-for-tat behavior and stand by two wrongs never making a right, I have to point out the hypocrisy in that statement. Aren’t you and your ilk the same people who mock, on a routine basis, little snowflake millennials who regularly need safe spaces because “they’re too soft, and too easily offended?”

Sounds like the pot calling the kettle the black--wait, I’m sorry, African-American.

Perhaps, the way to get Trump to come to next year’s WHCD, and get all of his staff (Whatever is left of it by then), they need to take some advice from Tina Fey, and hire a children’s choir.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
