A Woman Tried to Board a Plane with her Emotional Support Peacock.

One of the worst parts about flying is that you’re trapped in a metal tube at 30,000 feet with people stupid enough to think they can bring their peacock on board:

K-9s, felines .?.?. and peacocks.

Airlines that have begun talking about tightening restrictions on a proliferating array of “emotional support” animals on commercial flights may have found their case bolstered this week after a picture of a peacock that was reportedly denied a seat aboard a United Airlines flight traveled far and wide.

The Jet Set, a travel-focused television show based in Washington, posted the photo on Facebook of the resplendent blue-and-green bird, saying that the “emotional support peacock” had been denied boarding on a flight at Newark International Airport.

United Airlines confirmed that the exotic animal was barred from the plane Saturday because it “did not meet guidelines for a number of reasons, including its weight and size.”

Fact-checking website crashes during Trump’s first State of the Union

The fact-checking website crashing while checking Trump is the perfect metaphor for this Administration:

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address proved too much for non-partisan fact-checking site PolitiFact Tuesday night. The website saw its servers crash for six minutes during the President’s speech.

“Welp … our website just crashed. Thanks for reading ?!!? We’ll keep things up here on Twitter while we see what happened,” the website tweeted, citing high web traffic numbers.

Trump is reportedly talking about asking Attorney General Sessions to prosecute special counsel Mueller

Interesting…

President Donald Trump has been talking to his friends about possibly asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions to prosecute Robert Mueller, the special counsel overseeing the Russia probe, and his team, NBC News reported.

The revelation appears in a news analysis piece written by Howard Fineman, an NBCNews.com contributor and an analyst for MSNBC.

Fineman quotes an unnamed Trump advisor as saying: “Here’s how it would work: ‘We’re sorry, Mr. Mueller, you won’t be able to run the federal grand jury today because he has to go testify to another federal grand jury.'”

It’s unclear what charges Mueller could possibly face in such a situation.
