WASHINGTON (ABC7) — Christmas decorations are popping up left and right, but one street in NW Washington has a different kind of decoration this season—rainbow flags.
“A respectful message showing, in my case, my disagreement with some of his thinking,” said Ilse Heintzen.
The ‘he’ Heintzen is referring to is Vice-President Elect Mike Pence. Pence moved into a house on Heintzen’s block where he will stay on-and-off until he moves into the Vice-President’s mansion on the grounds of the Naval Observatory next year.
Neighbors started hanging the pride flags after the VP-Elect moved in because the LGBTQ community has criticized Pence’s policies regarding LGBTQ rights.
I haven’t watched the Daily Show in quite some time. To be honest, I never tuned in to watch it when Stewart was a host but just would watch clips as I came across them in the wild. The last time I did see a Daily Show with Noah, the jokes felt forced and not all that strong. Maybe he is finding his footing because this is my favorite clip I have seen of him to this point. And he does it by just calmly and rationally pointing out the gaping holes in her arguments and her defense of Trump.
Also, the white woman says that racism will go away if we just ignore it. With the level of ignorance on this panel alone, I no longer am wondering why Trump managed to pull out a win.
“No one in this world, so far as I know—and I have researched the records for years, and employed agents to help me—has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.” – H. L. Mencken
Two of the women (including the main idiot that does most of the talking in this video) are Trump delegates:
A CNN video segment getting a lot of play today features Alisyn Camerota revisiting with some Donald Trump supporters now that he has won the election. This was a call back to a panel discussion a year ago, featuring five of the same Trump voters from that forum.
Obviously, what will make this one get much play on CNN over the next few days, as well as online, will be the moments where two Trump supporters claim that millions of illegal immigrants voted in California. They also claimed that you could look on Facebook and Google to find out that President Barack Obama told people to vote illegally. While Camerota tried to convince them it wasn’t true, they insisted they had heard all of this from the media. (Camerota spoke to Mediaite not long ago about how she prides herself on these panels.)
Now, the two women responsible for this exchange with the CNN host — Susan DeLemus and Paula Johnson — are more than just passionate Trump voters who CNN talked to last year. They are both veteran politicians in New Hampshire you were selected as delegates by the Trump campaign and have been featured in the news, and on CNN, over the past year and a half.

Oh boy, another day, another boycott. Why is there a movement from the Breitbart crowd to boycott Levis?
Levi Strauss & Co chief executive Chip Bergh posted an open letter to LinkedIn on Wednesday requesting that jeans shoppers not carry guns, even with a permit, into any Levi’s location.
It should be noted that, although some outlets reported this as a ban on guns in Levi’s stores, it is not. In his note, Bergh specifically stated it is a “a request not a mandate.”
Stating that he has “tremendous responsibility to share our position on the issue, now, at a time when clarity is paramount,” Bergh wrote that “providing a safe environment to work and shop is a top priority for us at Levi Strauss & Co. That imperative is quickly challenged, however, when a weapon is carried into one of our stores.”
He stated that a customer recently carried a firearm into one of its stores, where it inadvertently fired, injuring its carrier. He did not specify in which location this occurred.
Ah. Gun fondlers don’t feel like they can shop for pants without being armed. What a sad existence to be in a constant state of fear.
When George W. Bush assembled his first Cabinet in 2001, news reports dubbed them a team of millionaires, and government watchdogs questioned whether they were out of touch with most Americans’ problems. Combined, that group had an inflation-adjusted net worth of about $250 million — which is roughly one-tenth the wealth of Donald Trump’s nominee for commerce secretary alone.
Trump is putting together what will be the wealthiest administration in modern American history. His announced nominees for top positions include several multimillionaires, an heir to a family mega-fortune and two Forbes-certified billionaires, one of whose family is worth as much as industrial tycoon Andrew Mellon was when he served as treasury secretary nearly a century ago. Rumored candidates for other positions suggest Trump could add more ultra-rich appointees soon.
Many of the Trump appointees were born wealthy, attended elite schools and went on to amass even larger fortunes as adults. As a group, they have much more experience funding political candidates than they do running government agencies.
