So I found a few amusing things today that may, for a while, take your mind off the horrors of the third Obama administration.

A potpourri of items from the web and in the news, with some (let’s hope) pertinent comments upon them:

First up, Chicago Mayor Lightfoot spends long minutes quibbling with a reporter because he called violence in her city last summer “race riots.” After excoriating him for his opinion that these were race riots, she then admonished him for criticizing her own opinion, false though it may be, that 99.9% of criticism thrown her way is only because she’s black, female, (and lesbian).

Snow White Says, “Me, too!”

Just when you think that popular (progressive) culture could not get any more ridiculous, it does.

Actress Kristen Bell has suggested that Prince Charming is probably guilty of sexual assault. How so? He didn’t ask Snow White’s permission to kiss her and thus break the spell that kept her in enchanted sleep!
