Fox News Remembers Aretha Franklin With Photo Of Patti LaBelle

Their hoods are showing again:

The video, while sincere, had a glaring issue. At around the 3:30 mark, there’s an image of Franklin with the text “1942 ? 2018.” Transposed on that image in the upper right corner is a photo of a woman singing.

A fast glance would lead you to believe it’s Franklin. It’s not. It’s the legendary singer Patti LaBelle.

Omarosa May Have as Many as 200 Tapes

You don’t have to like or trust Omarosa, but that this will be another thorn in Trump’s side, and one that he created by hiring “the best people”, makes me want to cut a small slice of schadenfreude pie.

The tapes of Ms. Manigault Newman’s private conversations with Mr. Trump and other officials connected to him have rattled the White House in a way that few things other than the special counsel investigation into possible campaign collusion with Russia have. Mr. Trump’s aides have been concerned that they will make appearances on other tapes, of which Ms. Manigault Newman is believed to have as many as 200.

Head of Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs Will Host a Trump Fundraiser

I picked the wrong time to start limiting meat in my diet. I can’t really boycott Nathan’s now on purpose.

Howard Lorber, the executive chairman of New York City hot dog icon Nathan’s Famous, will host a fundraiser on Friday for President Donald Trump, Bloomberg reports.

The fundraiser will reportedly take place at Lorber’s Southampton home and include a roundtable with supporters and a luncheon, with proceeds benefiting Trump Victory, which is a joint committee for Trump’s 2020 campaign and the Republican National Committee.

Lorber and Trump are best buds, with the President last year calling Lorber one of his two best friends. The pair’s relationship goes back 30 years; the two traveled to Moscow in 1996 “to explore business opportunities.” Trump also named Lorber chairman of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council’s governing board and had him as an economic adviser to his presidential campaign. In addition to heading up Nathan’s, Lorber is also chief executive officer of the Vector Group, which owns Douglas Elliman Realty.

There’s already been backlash to the news on social media, with many people voicing the decision to switch to Hebrew National. Nathan’s is a now-global enterprise and the official hot dog of Major League Baseball, but it has its roots in Coney Island since 1916. The brand has not been family-owned since 1987.
