Trump and the right-wing gang up on Pelosi

(CNN)To the casual observer, two seemingly unrelated political stories broke Thursday in Washington. First, The Washington Post reported that doctored videos of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in which she appears intoxicated at a political event, had spread across the internet and social media platforms. (It should be noted that Pelosi doesn’t drink, but facts sometimes take a back seat to smears from opponents.) Later, at the White House, President Trump opened a new line of attack on Speaker Pelosi, saying, “She’s a mess. … She’s lost it. … I think she’s got a lot of problems.” He called her “crazy Nancy.” For context, the previous day, Speaker Pelosi scored a direct shot on the President when she detailed Trump storming …

Woman shares side-by-side butt photos to prove ‘perfect’ bodies do not exist.

via Shutterstock In today’s culture, we are inundated with pictures of perfect-looking bodies, whether on TV, magazines or Instagram. Some of those bodies might be Photoshopped, while others might belong to seriously fit people.

Taipei, Taiwan (CNN)Beaming in the bright sunshine, Amber Wang took the hand of her new wife, Kristin Huang, on the steps of the Xinyi District office in Taipei, Friday, making history as one of the first same-sex couples to marry in Asia.

The judges gave the island’s parliament two years to amend and enact new laws. After months of stalling and acrimony, the laws finally passed on …

Thai media report death of ex-PM Prem Tinsulanonda

Prem was best noted for his devotion to the monarchy, especially the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who appointed him head of his Privy Council in 1998. His close relationship with Bhumibol helped cement the military’s ties with the palace, ensuring they were the country’s two most powerful institutions. Prem served as prime minister from 1980 to 1988. Critics questioned his devotion to democracy, and accused him of encouraging the 2006 coup that ousted elected Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

These side-by-side photos show exactly how Fox News controls Trump’s thoughts.

One of the most alarming aspects of Donald Trump’s presidency is the flippant way he handles his daily intelligence briefings. His most important job is commander in chief of the world’s most powerful military, but he prefers a pared down oral briefing over the full daily document outlining the most pressing information from hot spots around the globe. Leon Panetta, a former CIA director and defense secretary for President Barack Obama, highlighted the potential danger caused by Trump’s approach to intelligence. “Something will be missed,” Panetta told the Washington Post. “If for some reason his instincts on what should be done are not backed up by the intelligence because he hasn’t taken the time to read that intel, it increases …

Ayesha Curry Swats Troll Who Body Shamed Her 10 MONTH OLD BABY! – Perez Hilton

We know the Internet can be a terrible place full of awful words from anonymous trolls — but we honestly never thought we’d have to say the words… Do not body shame an infant!

Brooks Koepka clinches fourth major at PGA Championship

(CNN)The coronation had more spice than he would have liked, but Brooks Koepka held his nerve to seal back-to-back PGA Championship titles to confirm his status as a once-in-a-generation player. Rowdier elements of the already raucous New York crowd chanted “DJ, DJ” at Koepka as they sensed late sport in the bearpit of Bethpage Black. Memories raced back to other famous collapses, such as Jordan Spieth’s Masters misfortunes when he squandered a five-shot lead with nine to play in 2016. Or the similar Augusta agonies of Rory McIlroy or Greg Norman. But with Koepka at his mercy, Johnson faltered at the 16th and 17th to finish six under, and though Koepka dropped a shot at the 17th he had done …

Alabama, surprisingly, refuses to air big gay rat wedding.

UPDATE: Last week, the world learned that Mr. Ratburn, the shady, big-hearted teacher from “Arthur” was gay. And the world’s collective response? “Uh, I didn’t even know ‘Arthur’ was still a thing.” You know what we call that? Progress! Because it’s [jubilant swear words bleeped out] awesome that there’s more representation on TV and that people are cool with it (although, it’s sometimes tiring that you have to celebrate that the high bar of acceptance is “people aren’t freaking out about it!”)  and that the 58 moms who make up “One Million Mom” aren’t out here crying and screeching about the sanctity of traditional marriage. (Or, if they are, we just aren’t paying attention to them!) (At least I’m not. …
