Remind me again, which side of the political spectrum is full of conspiracy theorists?
Over at the NY Daily News, there's a story about #fakemelania. Apparently, this is a thing.
"Melania Trump body double conspiracy theory resurfaces following recent appearance alongside the President," reads the title. The theory RESURFACES, you know, again.
“That one does not look like her, sorry,” Joy Behar said while co-hosting “The View” Monday and looking at a photo of the visit. “I wasn’t going to go along with this, but that one in that picture doesn’t look like her. It’s a different-shaped face.”
“Melania is a very tall statuesque woman, and the one that we saw...she looks kind of short,” “View” co-host Sunny Hostin chimed in.
Of course, Joy Behar is in on this.
So I went over the Associated Press image website to check out the pictures of Trump and Melania (?) when they visited Alabama, the latest episode to trigger the concerned and discerning Trump-haters.
Melania getting off the plane in Alabama, picture 1:
Here's a close up:
And one more:
Melania greeting people in church, picture 2:
And here's a close up:
That looks like Melania to me. How about you?
See how much of this you can take before turning it off:
The Washington Examiner reports that "Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page testified last year that officials in the bureau, including then-FBI Director James Comey, discussed Espionage Act charges against Hillary Clinton, citing 'gross negligence,' but the Justice Department shut them down."
Newly released transcripts from Page’s private testimony in front of a joint task force of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees in July 2018 sheds new light on the internal discussions about an investigation into Clinton's emails. This goes back to the FBI’s "Midyear Exam" investigation, which looked into whether Clinton committed crimes when she sent and received classified information on her unauthorized private email server while serving as secretary of state.

So... slow enough news day for ya?
AOC today asked Wells Fargo CEO Timothy Sloan why he's involved with the caging of children:
It's almost like AOC is trying to replace reigning champ Hank Johnson in a "dumbest question asked during a House hearing" contest. She hasn't quite matched Johnson's crowd-pleasing, tour-de-force performance of 2010, but give her time. I think she may be the Democrat to do it.
Wells Fargo CEO Timothy Sloan testified before the House Financial Services Committee Tuesday Morning about his company’s business practices.
[slow clap for Nic Cage]
At least they've stopped pretending that they aren't in bed with the media:
The poor dears in the media feel put upon because, for the first time in the modern media era, a Republican president is pointing out the overwhelmingly biased, partisan hackery of the MSM.
It's fun to watch.
Some brilliant stuff on display here.
Here we go again:
This latest anti-MAGA incident happened in a NYC bar last week:
Dion Cini, a Trump supporter, says he was drinking a beer and eating fish and chips at Jake’s Dilemma, located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, when a bartender decided to kick him out because of the red MAGA visor he was wearing.
The management of Jake's Dilemma addressed the incident in a Facebook post:
Our staff and management team include people from all walks of life and beliefs. There is no singular or any defining character of Jake’s Dilemma. With all this in mind, we do fully acknowledge that one of our employees took it upon himself to wrongly promote his political views. We can assure everyone that this employee has been disciplined and will be retrained before being allowed to serve at Jake’s Dilemma. We hope to see you at Jake's Dilemma next time you are in the neighborhood.
That's it? The employee will only be "disciplined and retrained" -- after throwing out a customer because he disagreed with his politics?!
This excellent response to Jake's Dilemma's post is from a Facebook user who claims to manage a one of the top 10 beach bars in the world:
I bartend and manage one of the top 10 beach bars in the world and have worked there for 30 years. We have one standing rule that states that every customer is treated with respect, regardless of sex , race , religious or political standing. If a patron was ever refused service because of a political hat , that employee who refused service would be terminated immediately .. no 'retraining" just fired. Prejudice at that level can not and does not deserve the chance to be retrained. Every year since 9-11 our bar sends a large group of employees to New York to support the City. As long as the bartender in question is still employed we will skip "Jake's Dilemma".
I must disagree with my PJ Media colleague Debra Heine, Mitt Romney's unusual way of blowing out candles is actually quite courteous to people might have a problem eating dessert that someone else has blown their germs on.
