REPORT: Trump Claims “All Haitians Have AIDS”

The New York Times reports:

According to six officials who attended or were briefed about the meeting, Mr. Trump then began reading aloud from the document, which his domestic policy adviser, Stephen Miller, had given him just before the meeting. The document listed how many immigrants had received visas to enter the United States in 2017.

More than 2,500 were from Afghanistan, a terrorist haven, the president complained. Haiti had sent 15,000 people. They “all have AIDS,” he grumbled, according to one person who attended the meeting and another person who was briefed about it by a different person who was there.

Forty thousand had come from Nigeria, Mr. Trump added. Once they had seen the United States, they would never “go back to their huts” in Africa, recalled the two officials, who asked for anonymity to discuss a sensitive conversation in the Oval Office.

CNN reports:

The White House strongly pushed back on a report that President Donald Trump spoke about immigrants in a dismissive and demeaning fashion during a June meeting with top administration officials.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement blasting the paper and denying that Trump had made the comments.

“General Kelly, General McMaster, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Nielsen, and all other senior staff actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims and it’s both sad and telling the New York Times would print the lies of their anonymous ‘sources’ anyway,” Sanders said.

            I worked in a restaurant that served broiled lobster; we had to cut them in half and there was a black line down their backs – as if we needed directions on where to cut. I sometimes ‘forgot’ to remove the brain. I used to remove the wedges and bands that kept the claws from working and them from moving around – they weren’t very fast but occasionally they would get one of the prep cooks. I had to stand guard over the prep line to keep the damned help from eating all unbroken crab claw meat. The employee meal was always something not on the menu; the first time they served braised lamb shank I near killed myself eating them.

        Whatever happened to Glenda Jackson? For a few years she seemed to be in everythign and getting nominations and awards for everything, and then she kind of just disappeared.

        • Nick in Pasadena

          She was a member of the British parliament for quite awhile.

          • Reality.Bites

            From Wikipedia:

            In 2015 Jackson returned to acting following a 23-year absence, having retired from politics. She appeared in the play Blood Sex and Money by Émile Zola, which was broadcast on BBC Radio 4, taking the role of Dide, the ancient matriarch of the Rougon-Macquart family. Never one to be scared, she returned to the stage at the end of 2016, playing the title role in Shakespeare’s King Lear at the Old Vic Theatre in London, in a production running from October 25 to December 3. Jackson was nominated for Best Actress at the Olivier Awards for her role, but ultimately lost out to Billie Piper. She did, however, win the Natasha Richardson Award for Best Actress at the 2017 Evening Standard Theatre Awards for her performance in King Lear at the Old Vic.

          • perversatile

            Miss Jackson. Glenda if you’re fortunate.

            ”I was working but I doubt that I would have been there
            even if I hadn’t been. Watching it on television here in my
            hotel suite, I kept telling myself that I ought to turn it off and go to bed. I felt disgusted with myself–as though I were attending a public hanging . . . No one should have a chance to see so much desire, so much need for a prize, and so much pain when it was not given.”
            -Glenda Jackson commenting on her second Oscar.

        • Cuberly Deux

          Wow, you led me to check out her Wikipage. I keep forgetting to see The Music Lovers, how the hell have I missed seeing that! Jackson, Chamberlain and Ken Russell fer kriss sake!!!!

          Have always been a fan. I think the last time I saw her was when Netflix ran Ken Russell’s Salome’s Last Dance.

          • David Walker

            First time I saw her was in the original Royal Shakespeare production of “Marat/Sade” on Broadway…one of the most harrowing and thrilling nights of theater I’d ever experienced. She was a standout and I hoped I’d see more shows or movies with her. I think that was in 1965 and the movie came out in 1967, and she was also in that.
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYSW8QtpgbU

            I have the DVD box set of her “Elizabeth R.” Six 90-minute dramas, each an object lesson in acting, writing, and directing. God, I love her. Allegedly, she wanted to bring her “King Lear” to Broadway, but I haven’t heard anything lately.

          • Cuberly Deux

            Never saw her Shakespearean performances, I should definitely take a look.

          • Hue-Man

      So in the climactic closeup, Reed is on top, prone. Then, in the medium shot, he is suddenly supine before rolling over. What is that discontinuity about?

      • David Walker

        The “continuity girl,” as she would have been referred to, would have been barred from the shooting, as would most of the crew. That’s not unusual for nude scenes, even now. That’d be my guess.

        • Natty Enquirer

          Bates and Reed agreed to be nude for only one day. So those are the long and medium shots, for the most part. They did the closeups the following day. Guess that’s where the slip up occurred.

    I can’t keep track of the horrible things he and his band of thieves, mobsters and liars have done. Yesterday destroying the UN. Day before, destroying the middle class financially, day before supporting a pedophile, day before appointing incompetents to the judiciary, day before destroying the EPA, day before decimating the State Department, and today displaying his contempt for people with AIDS. And lies scattered like leaves in the fall. I hope he kicks the bucket soon. He is a worthless POS.

  • I’ve been reading reports/rumors that the real reason Cheeto Twitler is on a rampage today is because his lawyers met with Mueller’s team this past week, and for whatever reason, he was expecting his “letter of full exoneration.” Probably because it was also reported he believed Mueller would be done before the end of the year and that said letter would eventually be forthcoming.

    Well. Duh-hoy, that ain’t happening and never was, but the raging merkin-tufted Petals McPoutyFace talked himself into believing it had to be so. And the reason for *that* is deep in his sociopathic narcissistic psychosis, in which avoidance of shame is of paramount importance and the thought he might (nay, likely will) one day be charged formally with numerous felony crimes is intolerable. Thus he retreats into these deranged, delusional fantasies in which he’s universally adored and guilty of nothing but being the greatest human being who ever existed (including Jesus Christ, but don’t tell Mike Pence that).

    This next week is gonna be bad, I can feel it.

      Trump has been trying his hardest to get impeached. The Repuglican party is too thrilled being in full control of government to notice.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    OT but not totally OT: This is one woman’s view of apologies that have been coming lately from men who have been harassing women. Because I also think it applies to anybody who in the future does the performance of apologizing for not knowing how fucking stupid/bigoted/criminal Trump is. Apologies don’t matter unless it create a change in overall behavior.

    https://www.buzzfeed.com/scaachikoul/the-year-of-apologies?utm_term=.yadm2mQ9R#.elQQvQ7Wo

    “The catch is that giving forgiveness is more work than merely asking for it. True atonement, an honest attempt to fix something you broke, would involve work invisible to most women. Apologies are, largely, performative, and the ones women have received in the last few months have become burdens unto themselves — and, crucially, pathways for men to shrug off responsibility: I said I was sorry, ball’s in your court now.

    Years ago, I would have settled for an apology from any man who did something wrong. I would’ve given into a meek plea for forgiveness, tucked tail and all. Now, receiving an apology has the adverse effect that it’s supposed to: It just feels like being asked to process someone else’s regret, and embarrassment, and pain, on top of my own anger and frustration. It sounds like dealing with more work.

    In most cases, what I want is rarely words, or even anything I can see or hear. I want to be left alone at a bar, at a work party, on a plane, at a restaurant. I want you to tell the other men in your life that they can’t behave like this. I want you to fire them and stop being their friends and uninvite them from parties, regardless of whether I’m there or not. I want to notice the absence of action — how rarely I have to ask you not to say something crude to me or touch me. I want you to do
    the quiet, unseen work women do every day to keep ourselves safe, and I want you to do it so automatically that I don’t notice it at all. I want, for five minutes a day, for you to be as uncomfortable as I am almost constantly. I want you to stop yourself before you start. I want you to have retroactively been better.

    It might seem unfair that we’ve asked for apologies for so long and, now that we’re getting them, we’re picking them apart — turning up our noses, asking for even more. But if the last three months have taught me anything, it’s that just
    because an apology is thrown at you doesn’t mean you have to take it.”

            Indulgences are supposed (according to RCs—I’m an Episcopalian. We don’t do this stuff!) to get one out of Purgatory faster, but they’re not supposed to be existentially neccesary.

            Orange juice benefits skin largely by shrinking the open pores. Just apply the juice of an orange on your face; let it stay for 2-3 minutes and wash off immediately. This helps in closing the enlarged pores and giving a shining glow to your face.

            But cast iron.. okay, I’m stepping into this one: Does one really clean it or merely wipe it with a towel? I thought that scrubbing negatively affects the build up that acts as a buffer with the iron.

            I use water on a very hot cast iron. The instant steam cleans it. Occasionally re-oil and bake to seal.

          • Oscarlating Wildely

            Re-oil? Please describe.

          • The_Wretched

            Cast iron carbonizes with carbon. Oil is a carbon compound so if the black stuff that’s nonstick comes off, you can put it back by using regular vegetable oil, coat the pan, and bake to recreate the carbon – iron shell. It also prevents rusting.

          You can cheaply make an absolutely extraordinary–as in, surpasses any commercially available–glass cleaner with the following:

          1/4 cup white vinegar
          1/4 cup isopropyl alcohol, 70% is fine
          1 tsp to 1 Tbsp corn starch (colloidal oatmeal can be used as well)
          2 cups warm water

          Shake well before use; the corn starch will settle.

          • if you also have a problem with ants entering your house (i.e, if you live in Florida) this is a great way to keep them out. Ants will not cross vinegar — it is a great natural repellant. Just use it as a light wash on windows, window sills, even floors and it will keep the little critters away.

    OK. It’s Saturday night, I’m feckin’ sick and tired of the fucking moron, and I just want a good laugh. Not necessarily a clean laugh, but a good laugh. I’m told that Mrs. Brown’s Boys is not the most critically acclaimed thing on the BBC these days, but there’s something about her (and him) to which I have become addicted. To. There are two sections to this, so don’t be fooled by the dip to black about midway. I hope you enjoy these. The very last one blows me away every time.

      I’ve been a fan of BBC humor for decades. Going back to the 70s.

      To my taste, I can’t think of any contemporary American comedic TV that even remotely approaches the quality of the average British comedic TV.

      Same with dramatic TV programming.

      The Brits are way way ahead of us.

      • Bryan

        Proof of that is how wildly successful Doctor Who’s been even on shoestring budgets.

        • another_steve

          Today, Doctor Who’s all CGI. Back in the day, they had actual “special effects.”

          I don’t know which technique is/was more expensive.

          • Bryan

            True – my headspace was more in the Tennant era – still did some CGI but it was also costume porn. I meant more that the focus moves to the acting and you realize, holy shit they can act circles around us in their sleep. No, really. They even do coma scenes better. They can literally act our asses off, while sleeping/pretending-to-be-asleep.

    It turned out well; the white is already adjusting down to mid-range tan (it’ll end up being a pretty deep brown in a few days as the vanilla oxidizes). The scent is intensely vanilla with a bit of rosewood.

    The pock-marks are from it overheating severely as it turned from oil to soap. They’re cosmetic issues only, but I still wouldn’t give this as a gift.

    The older one with the incised code next to it is the test I did back on December 12th, the one with 5% oatmeal and colored as a faint marble. It’ll be ready around January 10th. This new one? January 20th at the earliest–it’s high in olive.

    • JohnJay

      So for us soap making illiterates, what is this “olive” of which you speak? Olive Oil? Olivine?

      • Treant

        Olive oil. It’s been a staple in soap making for millennia, but certainly has advantages and disadvantages. It’s a conditioning, gentle cleansing soap, but has lousy lather and takes forever to harden if you use too high a percentage. I kept it moderate.

        I use a higher percentage in my winter soap than summer soap, when I don’t need the cleansing but do need the conditioning.

        • JohnJay

          Thanks. You never hear commercial soaps touting olive oil. Do they not use it? I only have heard things like goats milk, cocoa butter, shea butter, etc in soaps. Then again, I grew up with “Lava”, which felt like sandpaper, and Boraxo, that scratchy powder you shook out of a metal container.

          • leastyebejudged

            Oil of Olay ?

          • Dreaming Vertebrate

            Nope!
            If you use Oil Of Olay products, you’d better get accustomed to a new name because the new name is simply “Olay”. This is because many consumers are realizing that the ‘oil’ in Oil of Olay is mineral oil on skin just isn’t a fine idea. In fact, it’s a terrible idea and mineral oil safety is highly questionable meaning that Oil of Olay & skin aren’t good companions.

            https://www.blissplan.com/beauty/natural-skin-care-beauty/oil-of-olay-products/

          • Treant

            Personally, if I were going to use a moisturizing oil, I’d want to use lard. It’s the one that’s closest to your own natural oils. And no, it doesn’t rot, smell bad, or otherwise force you to transform into a pig. 🙂

            But it squicks most people out. Severely. Most of the tropicals aren’t great for your skin, so olive and castor are the two remaining. Either are fine, neither is a good match for your own protective oil layer.

            Honestly, that’s one case where a honey-based lotion with some oatmeal in it comes in handy. Both will protect and moisturize your skin, and both are humectants.

          • Treant

            Most don’t use it, it’s too expensive and more difficult to handle. But most American soaps suck.

            Goat’s milk, cocoa butter, shea butter, and so on are nice in soap, but they’re mostly in there for label appeal. Soap is an apply and wash off product, within seconds generally, so none of those have any time or chance to absorb or change your skin.

            Not that I don’t do it; people go nuts when I put honey on the label. It sounds great, but tends to overheat soap, does funky things to lather production, and again, you wash it right off.

            About the only thing that does make a difference is something that’s there to soothe or exfoliate, so oatmeal? That works.

    So with the new tax overhaul, a lot of people who own property, particularly property that falls in states, counties, and municipalities with high taxes, are going to have a really shitty holiday season.

    Because you’re a fool if you do not prepay next years taxes before January 1st, since THAT deduction is going away.

    The serious ramifications of the deduction disappearing should give everybody some pause, because there are some BIG changes coming as a result of this, and you need to be prepared to deal with it. Crying about it, well that’s not going to do a thing for you.

    • Friday

      Sounds like not just economic warfare on Blue states, but an active real estate *looting* of them.

      • leastyebejudged

        People who live in the triple and double tax states/counties/cities will be hit the hardest.

        But one shouldn’t ignore the fact that those prohibitive taxes were reliant on a particularly shitty federal shell game of taking your money and giving it back at the end of the year.

        It was a evil and fucked up way to do it in the first place that has only caused property to end up concentrated in ever increasingly wealthier hands.

        Owning your home shouldn’t be exploited by realtors OR lenders OR evil fucked up local governments.

Oh I know that there were things going on that weren’t accepted socially, racially or sexually. It was a time when there was a real middle class. I’m 75 and a Vietnam Combat Veteran.

            When I was a young teen my grandparents were watching Lawrence Welk and they sang about Bad, bad, Leroy Brown, the baddest man in the whole darn town.

            What’s worse is they ended it with “And now he’s nice, nice, Leroy Brown, the nicest man in the whole darn town.”

            I was incensed. If you can’t respect a song, don’t perform it.

          Kirsty is one of the most under appreciated UK female singers. She was incredible.

          • easygoingmister

            we came across some of her songs 10 – 15 years ago. not sure if it was an album, but i specifically remember ‘these shoes’, and ‘designer life’. remember it so much that the phrase ‘designer life’ is part of our private lexicon to date.

            something goes upside-down and either I or my best friend from high-school invariably say ‘welcome to designer living, this is your designer life’.

    No Fucking Way. Not Remotely. Aaron Blake, senior political reporter for The Fix: are you insane? No, really?

    • TampaDink

      Bernie is STILL not a Democrat. He needs to relish in his “independence”.

      • Oscarlating Wildely

      Doesn’t he have ice cream makers to talk to or something?

    • Treant

      Naw, that’s crap. He’s even managed to erode support he had in 2016…when he couldn’t win against somebody his supporters whined was deeply hated. And with several states having gotten fed up with caucus manipulations due to his converts, it’s going to be even harder for him to appear relevant.

      So no, the #1 choice in 2020 is somebody we haven’t even thought of yet.

      • JCF

        This. I think in 2016 that Bernie, working the caucuses, kind of snuck on Democrats. A 2nd time around, absolutely not—especially when there are now so many “Bernie Regretters” around!

        • Blake J Butler

          With the way he acted last year, and the way he’s acting now, he has regressed his base, even those that never wanted to vote for hillary in the first place.

          Either he will try again, or groom a puppet to run with his blessing and bemoan about wall street, super PAC’s, and the corporate democrats, while trying to secure the nomination against the waste of sperm that republicans will choose again for their nominee.

          And he or his plant will lose.

      • Oscarlating Wildely

        I don’t know. Biden keeps… acting like it? Harris, possible. Warren, no, agreed. Booker: too soon. Castro twins? No, not now. Coumo?
        God, I hope not. NY in this case is not the nation. Brown? GOP can’t win without OH. Wow, is he boring to listen to, though. Guess: Harris or Warren or Gillibrand or Booker for VP, none for Pres. Eyes still on Biden. 2028: Sims, VP slot.

        • JCF

          I like Sherrod Brown. If there has to be a white guy at the top of the ticket, he’s the only one who enthuses me. (Sorry, Joe.)

          The ticket I came up w/ a few nights ago, still seems like the “Dream Team” to me: Harris/Kennedy (ginger Joe K getting more and more buzz). But keep an eye on Xavier Becerra: he’ll be fresh off a statewide California win (Attorney General, and boy does the USA need a restoration of the Constitution right now!), w/ years in Congress. Mexican-American, handsome, and combines BOTH passion and smoothness. Serious possibility for Veep slot, w/ almost any of those listed. [I listed “Brown/Becerra” last week too.]

          • Oscarlating Wildely

            I actually thought about Kennedy. He just seems so… not interested at all right now, unless I missed some developments.

          • Oscarlating Wildely

            Biden does have blue collar cred and two magical letters by his name: PA. Dude was technically from here and is currently working in Philly.

          • Blake J Butler

            Biden has one problem, and that is going off script and his mouth runs before his brain gets in the car on occasions. Obama was smart to put him in as VP, but his mouth gets him into trouble.

            A trait i do not enjoy at all with the current waste of sperm we currently have. That and age may be a factor, his window passed him when he should’ve taken it, also the times he did run, he was nowhere near on the radar in the nomination in 08.

          • Reality.Bites

            He also has the problem of being even older than Trump.

            What the hell is it with the US electing/considering old white men as President? In any other country he’d be considered 20 years too old to be RETIRING from the Presidency!

            Our ex-PM is 58 and was in his early 40s when he became PM, just like our current PM, who at 45 is older than the leaders of the opposition parties.

            I’m 59. I know my capabilities and how I’ve changed. I was never qualified to be PM, but I’m a good deal less qualified to do ANYTHING than I was 10 years ago. The idea that I’d be a suitable candidate for office in 15 years is an absurdity.

            I wouldn’t let a doctor who was 75 perform surgery on me.

          • Cackalaquiano

            Biden’s way too old, and I don’t know why, but I feel like there’s some harassment scandal in his past to come to light.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      I read that article. I don’t think Bernie is going to win. I’d actually put more money on Kamala Harris than him.

      What I’m curious about is who will run for the GOP nom if Trump doesn’t run for 2020 because he’s dead or in jail. And let’s go with the idea that Pence is so tainted by the Dump stuff, it kills his run for the nom early on.

      • Oscarlating Wildely

        Run in 2020? Paul Ryan. But it’s hard to run when one doesn’t have a spine, so… no clue.

        • Skeptical_Inquirer

          The only thing I want to see happen with Paul Ryan is for him to be revealed to be a vampire and for him to be staked.

          • Lazycrockett

            Harris will easily sweep the NE, and the south in the primaries, CA in march will put her over the top.

      While I don’t have much experience with this sort of prediction in politics, every time there’s going to be a new Doctor on Doctor Who, there’s a flurry of predictions in the UK press. Not only do they never get it right, the person eventually chosen for the part has never even been on the list!

      These articles are nothing more than clickbait and not worth getting fussed about. And while the last two Democratic nominations were somewhat predictable, in that there was a clear front-runner from the start who ended up winning, name me one pundit who picked Donald Trump three years before the election.

      There is a much higher chance of Bernie being dead in 2020 than of him being the Democratic nominee.

          Have you heard about melatonin for reflux? A friend told me about it (sounded crazy to me, but I googled it, and found some promising info). I’m trying it. 6mg per night. I know there’s a possible placebo effect, but it seems to be working…

          • Reality.Bites

            I hadn’t, thanks, however I’m on blood thinners and it can increase bleeding risk. I’m super-cautious about anything that can interact with something as major as that, unlike something that might quickly cause a minor symptom like a headache or drowsiness.

            I don’t normally have it but I just got back from a short visit to the parents a month after having a kidney removed. At home, where it’s winter, I’m not going out much and when I do it’s for a couple of hours or so to shop or visit my boyfriend (he most often comes here), so I feel pretty much like normal, but spending all day out with family is exhausting. My parents don’t know about the surgery – they’re in their mid-80s and I can’t even let them know when I have a headache or a cold!

            Because of an anti inflammatory Rx I’ve developed acid reflux and have been snacking on saltine soda crackers, also available salt free.
            Saltines are an old remedy for heartburn because they contain baking soda and cream of tartar, both of which are alkaline and able to neutralize the acid in the esophagus. Furthermore, chewed-up saltines are absorbent and act as a sponge to soak up acid as they move down the esophagus towards the stomach.

Hope your infection clears. CIPRO is one hell of a drug. As some one mentioned, papaya enzyme. Picking up one of those huge ones today. Meanwhile, Provecho! And Merry Christmas.

            Love to you both, too!
            I hope for next year you get a reliable connection to a sweet, talented old lady who makes and sells tamales. (I lost the phone number of mine in the move, but the ones I got from Hector’s Bakery I must admit are superb.)

            I hear you. I try to keep my own aches and pains from my dad (97) as much as possible—just one more source of my own stress. }-p

      The Post doesn’t have a paywall. (The NYT does)

      • Reality.Bites

        They sure do – but it’s more generous, with I think a 20-article limit.

        There are some ways around it, such as having a .mil or .gov email. Amazon Prime members can also get a free trial.

          Hmmm. You’re a Canuck, right? Maybe it’s different, between Yanks and fur’ners (;-/). I’ve certainly never run into one, and I l look at WAY more than 20 articles/month! [And I don’t have the type of emails listed, either]

      Oh my god, that’s sickeningly accurate.

      • Reality.Bites

        Remember that poster who spammed us constantly with anti-Hillary cartoons and disappeared right after the election?

        It’s rather clear, in retrospect, that the user was a bot or worked at a troll farm.

        I don’t know what tools are available to Joe, or what will be available in 2020, but it’s not only Facebook that was hijacked. I personally would advise that if someone repeatedly posts and but won’t engage in conversation, they need to be IP banned. And probably ALL posts from some countries should be blocked.

        I’m openly a “foreign agent” – I specifically identify as Canadian. Someone actually posting from Russia and not saying so, while adopting an American persona? Ban the fuck out of them.

        • Ninja0980

          Yup, I have no doubt many of them were bots but sad to say, some of them were JMG regulars or former ones.
          Had to block most of them, which was tough, especially Scott Wooledge aka Clarknt67.
          But I just got sick of the obsessive Hillary hate/Bernie slobbering in their posts, which was akin to Trumpbots.

          • Reality.Bites

            Yes, there were a few regulars who I blocked as well.

            Of course L. Collins always bugged the fuck out of me for not being able to spell his own first name.

            Speaking of names, did you ever read the redit theory that all countries have Ninjas and we only know about Japan’s because they’re the worst at it?

        • whollyfool

          Good point. I’m sure it wasn’t only FB. Putin had a machine of an organization cranking out this stuff and it was according to a strategy. It pisses me off so badly that he’s getting away with it.

          He’s also just sowing discord. We need to stop this way before 2020. (May 2020 be the year of clear sight.)

          • MaryJOGrady

            May 2018 be the year of clear sight, followed swiftly by the impeachment of #45 and Pence! (Pence is dirty, up to the eyeballs in #45’s filth, he just does not get the press that #45 does.)

          • whollyfool

            That works too. Not as good a joke, but much better for everyone.

          • prixator

            Pence is far deeper than the eyeballs. Did you read this? Beyond belief is an understatement:

          It’s not just Joe that needs to do that. If you’ve ever visited the CBC’s comment section you’ll notice that something’s changed over the last few years.

          The posters don’t read as if they’re really from Canada, IMO anyhow. 🙁

          • Reality.Bites

            I haven’t been there in years, but before the Star shut down their comment section it was pretty clear that the overwhelming majority of comments were not from Canadians or Star readers.

            My reality is that when I read a publication I want to read comments from other readers who care about that publication, not people who’ve come in to shit all over it.

    I dont know exactly who Eric Garland is, but, girl is melting down on twitter.

      Brent Corrigan is as well, though I think everyone saw that coming.

        Going through a breakup with his fiancee? The holidays are a wierd time

        • Ninja0980

          They had already called off the engagement so this was just a matter of time IMO.
          And not a surprise it’s happening now.
          Contrary to popular belief, issues boiling up tend to get worse during the holidays, not better.
          So I’m not shocked at all to see it happen with them.
          Personally knowing folks who know Brent, I’d say JJ should cut his losses and run, as Brent needs more help then JJ or anyone else can give.

    The Los Angeles Police Department bomb squad responded to a report of a suspicious package addressed to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Saturday night.

    According to NBC Los Angeles, the box wrapped in wrapping paper contained manure .

    Bel Air Road was closed due to the investigation.
    The package was cleared by officials by 8 p.m.

    • Reality.Bites

      Gee, usually at most one of those can clear a bathroom or a small studio apartment.

    O/T Jordan Waller who plays (gay) Lord Alfred Paget in the second season of TV series Victoria, : ‘I told friends I had three mums’

    One of the great things about being born to a gay couple is that they
    have to work hard to have a baby, so you know you were really wanted: babies don’t just ‘happen’ to two women or two men.

    https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2017/dec/23/jordan-waller-victoria-actor-gay-parents-interview?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other
    Christmas episode of Victoria airs tomorrow, Christmas Day in the UK. PBS will show season 2 starting next month.

      Why three mums – was one a step-mum?

      Grumble… these kids today have no morals. Imagine, lesbians divorcing left and right as if they were Christians!

      “Call me old-fashioned, but I still think a child deserves a mother and a mother.” – Henry Winkler as Dr. Stuart Barnes, Out of Practice, Jan. 9, 2016.

      • JCF

        “lesbians divorcing”?

        No, in Waller’s childhood, lesbians “divorcing” (we can use scare quotes too!)

        That’s long been demonstrated a benefit of legal marriage: that it promotes couples staying together (compared to couples w/o it). Neither Waller’s biological mother, nor any of her partners (Jordan had two significant ones in his childhood, though one is now sadly deceased), had that support of legal marriage. We can be proud of the fight our community has conducted (is conducting!) worldwide, to change that.

      The English language is likely the most extensive language on the planet with more words than any other. Donnie, has, in one short year, caused us to use up all the insulting, derogatory, demeaning, and degrading words the average citizen can recall. Now THAT’S quite an achievement for a newly elected President.
