The Beatings Will Stop When Morale Improves

Just a couple of Trump voters who wish you would be kind to them.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders now is under Secret Service protection after being refused service at a Red Hen last weekend.

Since that restaurant in Lexington, Va., turned the press secretary away, it has been inundated with threats.

It has been blitzed with red-hot one-star reviews on Yelp. Some fool today tossed chicken manure at it while screaming, “Make America great again.”

Red Hens across the country – guilty for only sharing the name – are being targeted by angry customers and also have seen their review rankings tank.

A Comedian Told Some Jokes. Get Over It.

Judging from the stink, you’d think someone served flaming plates of poo at the White House Correspondents’ dinner this weekend.

Dear President Obama,

As a child of the ’60s, I’ve seen my share of presidents – some good, some bad, some well-meaning, some corrupt.

Like many of my generation, I have a cynical view of politicians. The word seems to suggest, if not a charlatan, then certainly an opportunist.

When you became the 44th president of the United States in 2009, you inherited an economy in crisis and a country fighting two wars in the Middle East.

As the first African-American leader of the free world, you faced unparalleled opposition from Republicans, who vowed to thwart your every initiative even before you took the oath of office.
