GOP Rep. Thomas Massie Says Trump Could Be A ‘One-Term President’ If Health Care Bill Passes





A Republican lawmaker says he is trying to save President Donald Trump by voting against the White House-backed health care bill.
We’re afraid he’s a one-term president if this passes,” Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) told CNN’s Kate Bolduan. “We are trying to save him.”
Massie also made headlines on Wednesday for changing his vote on the American Health Care Act from “no” to “hell no.” 




Earlier this week, Massie said he had received 275 phone calls from constituents who were against the bill, and only four who called to support it. 
“Electorally, voting for this Continue reading "GOP Rep. Thomas Massie Says Trump Could Be A ‘One-Term President’ If Health Care Bill Passes"

Oklahoma Republican Says God Can Use Rape And Incest To ‘Bring Beauty From Ashes’




A Republican lawmaker in Oklahoma defending an anti-abortion bill claimed that rape and incest could be part of God’s will. 
The bill by state Rep. George Faught would ban abortion due to genetic abnormalities or Down syndrome, with no exceptions for cases of rape and incest. 
Democrats challenged him on that in a debate on the floor of the state’s House of Representatives. 
Is rape the will of God?” asked Rep. Cory Williams. 
“If you read the Bible, there’s actually a couple circumstances where that happened and the Lord uses all circumstances,” Faught replied. “I mean, you can go down that path, but it’s a reality, unfortunately.”
“Is incest the will of God?” Williams asked.
“Same answer,” Faught replied. “Doesn’t deal with this bill.”  
Williams fired back that his questions did deal with the bill.
“You won’t make any Continue reading "Oklahoma Republican Says God Can Use Rape And Incest To ‘Bring Beauty From Ashes’"

Pastor Claims Anointed Cake Stopped A Guy From Being Gay




A conservative preacher and vocal supporter of President Donald Trump shared claims an “anointed” cake “saved” a gay bartender. 
Lance Wallnau was answering a question via a Periscope session from a viewer who wanted to stop her son from being gay, according to a video that Right Wing Watch posted online. 
In response, he shared the story of “hookers” who got “saved” and wanted to help a bar owner “who was gay and very adamantly anti-Christian.”
So they baked him a cake and prayed over it, he said.
“It was an anointed cake,” Wallnau said. “The power of God hit him while he was eating the cake.” 
Wallnau claimed the bar owner felt “the presence of God” while eating the cake and underwent some kind of transformation and was eventually baptized.
“The spirit that was working him got broken off,” he said. “I’m telling you, it’s a story. Continue reading "Pastor Claims Anointed Cake Stopped A Guy From Being Gay"

Kushner Family Wants To Erect A Skyscraper That Looks Just Like A Penis






The company owned by the family of Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House advisor, has unveiled plans for a makeover of a New York City building.
The Wall Street Journal said Tuesday that Kushner’s role in the White House is complicating the process due to the potential for conflicts of interest, even though he has sold his stake in this and other family owned properties. 
But the possible conflicts aren’t getting nearly as much attention as the building’s design, which Twitter users say is unmistakably phallic.
Here’s some of the reaction:





Sean Hannity Once Had Very Different Feelings About FBI Investigations





Fox News host Sean Hannity used to feel very differently about FBI investigations and presidents.
When Hillary Clinton was running for the presidency, Hannity claimed the probe into her private email server would create a “major constitutional crisis” and prevent her from doing the job if she won the election, as a clip from his Oct. 31, 2016 broadcast shows.
Hannity has been singing a different tune lately.
While Hannity celebrated FBI director James Comey’s probe of Clinton, his most recent Fox News column said the agency’s investigation of possible ties between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia has “fueled alt-left conspiracy theories.”

Elmo From ‘Sesame Street’ Learns He’s Fired Because Of Donald Trump’s Budget Cuts




Elmo... laid off??? 


A new parody video from What’s Trending shows what could happen if President Donald Trump’s proposed budget cuts reached “Sesame Street.”
Since the show isn’t directly funded by the corporation and has a contract with HBO, Elmo is probably safe... at least for now. 
But some children may no longer be able to watch the show as the cuts could force some PBS stations to shut down, especially in rural areas. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Vicente Fox Mocks Trump’s Low Ratings: ‘If This Were TV, You’d Be Fired’






Former Mexican President Vicente Fox let loose on President Donald Trump on Monday.
Using Twitter, Fox shared a graphic featuring the president’s latest poll numbers from Gallup, which showed Trump with a record low approval rating of just 37 percent and a disapproval rating of 58 percent.
Fox then told the former “Apprentice” star what numbers like that would mean if he still had his old TV gig:




Fox, who was the leader of Mexico from 2000 to 2006, has been a vocal critic of Trump since the presidential campaign. He's called Trump the “hated gringo” and “ugly American,” delivered the message Continue reading "Vicente Fox Mocks Trump’s Low Ratings: ‘If This Were TV, You’d Be Fired’"
