Last Laugh

Jokes galore at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner. Seth Meyers & Barack piled on the Donald. Belittled him mercilessly. Not that he didn’t deserve it. But, he really didn’t like it. So much so that it was the catalyst for his running for President. Last night no one showed up at the White House Correspondents dinner while 10,000 rallied around him in Harrisburg, Pa. As President of the United States. Who’s laughing now?

Losers

People on United Airlines. Animals are treated well. Get to keep their seats. Allergic people passengers get kicked to the back of the cabin or booted off. Remember when cigarette smokers had to sit in the back? For health reasons?!

Smith College. Relegated to runner-up for Veep Selena Meyer’s Presidential library after Yale dumped her. Then Smith dumped her, too. Not feminist enough.

Free speech. On college campuses no less. Censorship is the new academic ideal.

Pocahontas. Why tag her with Granny Warren? Liz will be swinging her tomahawk on Real Time with Bill Maher tonight.

White House Correspondents Dinner. Incestuous glitterati fest. This year no guests.

Feminish

Women’s movement. For some women. Not all women. Christine Lagarde spurned at Smith College graduation. Condoleeza Rice run out of Rutgers. Ann Coulter banned from Berkeley. Ivanka booed in Berlin. You don’t have to agree with all women. You just have to acknowledge that they are actually women. Okay. People. With independent opinions. Worth listening to. Then agree or reject their views.

Second Thoughts

Marine LePen came in second to 39-year old Macron. A former investment banker, he married his 24-years older former high school teacher. What? Yup. Stock market likes him better. Run-off will result in an outsider running France either way. Former Prez Obama emerges at the University of Chicago. The guy I voted for President, Mike Bloomberg is still my first choice.

Rory McIlroy tied the knot at Ashcroft Castle in Ireland. He wasn’t ready with Caroline and dumped her the day the invites went out. This time he showed up to wed a PGA friend.

Le Poison Pen

Barbs and arrows are flying in France pre-election. It will be close. And Marine Le Pen could disrupt the EU beyond repair. She is set to write a chapter worthy of Les Liaisons Dangereuses. Exploiting her native land’s intrinsic jingoism. The most chauvinist of all European countries. Where nationalism has always been a way of life. As Brexit and Trumpxit have prevailed, Frexit could be the final blow to Yerp as we know it.
