  • Fox News' Jesse Watters appears to make lewd Ivanka Trump joke then takes abrupt holiday

    A Fox News presenter is taking a break from TV after he made a joke about Ivanka Trump that was widely interpreted as a sexual innuendo. Moments after suggesting left-wingers booing the first daughter, were being disrespectful, Jesse Watters said he "liked how she was speaking into that microphone", before smirking at his fellow presenters. Mr Watters said during a live broadcast: "It’s funny, the left says they really respect women, and then when given an opportunity to respect a woman like that, they boo and hiss.

  • On his birthday, his 13-year-old sister hugged him. Then he shot her in the head

    On Martaevious Santiago’s 17th birthday, he shot his 13-year-old sister in the back of the head. She had just hugged him in the kitchen of the family’s Florida City home, police said. As they separated and Tedra King walked away, Martaevious pointed a loaded semiautomatic handgun at her. Then he pulled the trigger and killed her. Martaevious told police it was an accident. The shooting happened Tuesday night inside a modest Florida City subdivision called Washington Park. Outside the home on Wednesday, shocked family members — some on the way to identify the young girl’s body at the morgue — demanded privacy. “Everybody that knows a word of prayer, please pray for the Bess family,” close family

  • Dude teases a lion and gets a healthy dose of instant karma

    It's probably not a good idea to tease things that are perfectly capable of eating you. A man spotted an Asiatic lion in the Gir Forest National Park in India and got a little too wrapped up in watching the king of the jungle. In the clip, released in September of 2016, the man drives just a few feet away from a lion walking alongside the road. He's filming the whole thing, with his window down, no less.  After teasing the lion with his car for a bit, the lion stops, stares at the man and lets out the tiniest, yet powerful roar. While the lion's actions were small, it was enough to freak out the man. He quickly rolled up his window and let out a shriek that seems to say, "OMG I'm I almost just

  • “80 sets of invisible eyes rolling”: senators unimpressed by White House North Korea brief

According to senators who attended the briefing, it was a whole lot of nothing.

  • Mom Tells Teachers Her Daughter Is "Done" With Homework in Bold Email

    If you ever worried about why your child was coming home with hours upon hours of homework each night, Bunmi Laditan — the mom behind The Honest Toddler blog — can not only relate, but she can also serve as a reminder that you have the power to put a stop to it. "My kid is done with homework," she wrote in a heated Facebook post. "I just sent an email to her school letting her know she's all done. I said 'drastically reduce' but I was trying to be polite because she's finished." She noted how her 10-year-old daughter, Maya — who is in school from 8:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. and still has two to three hours of homework each evening — "loves learning" but has become more and more stressed by school. She's

  • United Airlines offers $10,000 for passengers to give up seats on overbooked flights

    United Airlines has announced sweeping changes on how it "respects its customers" following the infamous moment when a passenger was forcibly dragged off an overbooked flight. The company made a total of 10 "substantial" changes to how they will manage customer experience after a video seen across the world showed David Dao being forcibly dragged screaming from an overbooked flight in Chicago in what resulted in a PR disaster for the airline. The changes include limiting the use of law enforcement officials on board flights to safety and security issues only, as well as increasing the compensation incentive for passengers to voluntarily give up their seats on overbooked flights to $10,000 (£7,700).

  • Even Donald Trump's birthday tweet to Melania has a factual error it in

    Our Tweeter in Chief Donald Trump, is known for playing fast and loose with facts, but you'd think a birthday message to his wife would be a nice softball. He can garner a few awws and then move on.  Nope. SEE ALSO: The only Melania in the White House is this photograph On Wednesday, Melania Trump celebrated her birthday. And like most loved ones do on their spouse's birthday, Donald Trump took to Twitter to send his best wishes to his wife. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our @FLOTUS, Melania! https://t.co/rYYp51mxDQ pic.twitter.com/np7KYHglSv — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 26, 2017 However, when it came to the graphics, there was a ball drop. Or a star drop, if you will. If you look closely you'll notice that the flag in that graphics package only has 39 stars, which leaves out quite a number of states.  And because nothing escapes the internet, Twitter definitely noticed. There are only 39 stars on that flag, sir. https://t.co/KATgoLIQUv — Dan Zak (@MrDanZak) April 27, 2017 This is so weird: The American flag on @FLOTUS Melania Trump's birthday card only has 39 stars. H/t: @eventsforgood pic.twitter.com/IYd2hdOXGJ — Christina Wilkie (@christinawilkie) April 27, 2017 Very weird. Since the 39 star flag was never official since we went from 38 to 42 states in 1890. https://t.co/TG5JWAPOA3 — MyNinjaTurtle (@MyNinjaTurtle) April 27, 2017 @chrislhayes Wonder which 11 states are slated for destruction? #39StarFlag pic.twitter.com/KKkIS1ElZB — kathy greenstone (@KathyGreenstone) April 27, 2017 To make matters even more worse, this is not the first time Donald Trump has shared the 39-star flag. As MSNBC's Chris Hayes pointed out, Donald Trump also shared the flag at the end of the video welcoming freed Egyptian American Aya Hijazi who was imprisoned in Cairo. @christinawilkie @FLOTUS @eventsforgood IT'S THE SAME FLAG IN THE END OF THIS VIDEO!!!! https://t.co/jZOSS7VjNh — Christopher Hayes (@chrislhayes) April 27, 2017 Someone in the WH graphics operation has a 39-star flag saved on their computer as the current flag and is using it everything! — Christopher Hayes (@chrislhayes) April 27, 2017 For reference, Mr. President, we've never actually had a 39-star flag in the history of the United States.  The design was actually created in 1889 when flag makers were anticipating the addition of the Dakotas to the United states. Flag makers incorrectly assumed that what we know as North Dakota and South Dakota would be admitted to the US as only one state, not two. The New York Times notes:  Long story short, flag makers jumped the gun, so now 39-star flag was never an official flag. They are now just collectors items. Note: there was never an official 39-star flag, but some folks thought there would be 39 states in 1889, so some flags were actually created — Brian Ruh (@brianruh) September 5, 2016 WE NEVER EVEN HAD A 39 STAR FLAG https://t.co/XpMS0LMd97 — SheriffFruitfly (@sherifffruitfly) April 27, 2017 Now, to be fair, this is probably just a graphic design mistake from the White House art department, not a comment on how many states Trump wishes we had. But the fact stands: The. President. Of. The. United. States. Tweeted. A. Fake. Flag. Happy Birthday, Melania!
