WH scrambling to distance itself from Mueller indictments 

The indictments against Paul Manafort  and his associate Mr Gates have the WH in a scramble.  According to reports,   the WH says that these indictments have nothing to do with Trump personally.  No really.  During a press briefing, Sarah Sanders claimed that the WH itself had very little to do with the indictments and had no knowledge of what was going on with them.  Furthermore,  it now appears that they do indeed have something to do with the other -- given that if Manafort turns on Trump in any way this could get ugly.  Keep up with us on social media for the latest news on Mueller's investigation.

If you ask anyone with a conscious and two moving thumbs to access some sort of electronic device -- they probably know who Lisa Bloom is.     Lisa Bloom, she's almost like that elephant in the room; the random aunt that shows up uninvited to your mother's wedding insisting she's only there for morale support.

NAACP issues national travel advisory in America for African Americans

The NAACP is intervening in what has become a growing problem with American  Airlines: injustices in the sky for those who are minorities.  This week, the NAACP issued a national travel advisory for African Americans and minorities -- as -- they've managed to discover an even further reason why they did such.   The announcement originally was thought to have come after a string of recent incidents in which saw minorities, essentially, be mistreated or entirely get kicked off of planes for no real reason. The goal of the advisory is to 'educate people; minorities, and communities"  about the concerns that we must "face while aboard American Airlines flights".  Most recently, the warning appears to have been born out of a controversy involving a pregnant Pakistani woman; an allergen t...
