Nothin' to see here. Just the MSM exposing themselves as insensitive pricks just to take a cheap shot at Trump.

CNN’s Chris Cillizza slammed after mocking Trump’s eulogy to mom who lost son to opioid crisis

CNN politics reporter and editor-at-large Chris Cillizza used an emotional story about a mother who lost her son to the opioid epidemic as political fodder against President Trump in a Monday morning tweet.

“Fox & Friends” featured a segment about Sue Kruczek, who joined the morning show to explain why she sent a letter to the president detailing her son’s opioid overdose. She lost her son four years ago when he was 20 years old.

“Through our broken hearts, we wanted to show the president our love,” Kruczek said before reading an excerpt of the letter she sent Trump.


“I can walk away the lucky one now. I was privileged to be Nick’s mom for 20 years and I got to hear, ‘I love you, Mom,’ every single day,” a teary-eyed Kruczek read from the letter on live television.

The president was apparently watching the interview, or at least informed of the tragedy, and took to Twitter to offer kind words for Kruczek.

“Thank you to Sue Kruczek, who lost her wonderful and talented son Nick to the Opioid scourge, for your kind words while on @foxandfriends. We are fighting this terrible epidemic hard,” Trump tweeted on Monday morning. “Nick will not have died in vain!”

Cillizza quoted the president’s tweet and mocked him for watching television.

“’But I don’t get to watch much television. Primarily because of documents.’ -- Donald Trump,” Cillizza wrote.

Back in November, Trump told reporters that he doesn’t get to watch much television because he spends so much time reading documents. “I actually read much more -- I read you people much more than I watch television,” he told reporters on Air Force One at the time.

CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker has seemingly installed an anti-Trump programming strategy at the increasingly liberal network. Anchors Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, Brooke Baldwin and Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta are some of the network’s stars who have been vocal about their disdain for the president. This past weekend, CNN was slammed for publishing a glowing puff piece about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister appearing at the Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea — with a headline claiming she was “stealing the show.”

Some observers think CNN is now the official cable news leader in anti-Trump content. Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor called Zucker’s network the “TV home for the resistance,” while others criticize CNN for failing to admit what it has become.

“It seems to me that MSNBC sort of owns its own liberalness in that they don't shy away from it, while CNN still makes this attempt to call themselves unbiased despite their coverage often being slanted,” Mediaite columnist Joseph Wulfsohn told Fox News.

Meanwhile, President Trump has vowed to fight the opioid crisis that is plaguing America, regularly saying, “We will prevail.” Cillizza criticizes Trump on a regular basis, often calling him a hypocrite, and he recently accused the president of spending his day watching taped episodes of the Fox News morning show.

Cillizza’s claim to fame is that Trump once called him “one of the dumber and least respected of the political pundits,” which the CNN star quotes on his Twitter bio.

Teen girls charged with killing pet birds, smearing bird blood everywhere after breaking into classmate's home

Two female teenagers are accused of breaking into a North Carolina home, killing the pets inside and setting a vehicle on fire, police said.

Hallie Pate, 17, of Kinston, and Jordan Ruiz, 18, of Albertson, reportedly broke into the home of a girl they went to school with in Lenoir County on Feb. 4.

Once inside, the teens allegedly killed the girl’s two parakeets before smearing the birds’ blood on the furniture, the Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office said.

The teenagers also allegedly stole some items from inside the home, including an Xbox One gaming system and medical inhalers. After finding a vehicle parked outside, they set the car ablaze and left, officials said.

The pair were arrested Thursday on a dozen charges, including breaking and entering, larceny and cruelty to animals. They were caught after allegedly trying to sell the stolen items.

Homeowner Mack Price told WITN the teens poured lighter fluid throughout the house.

“It would be bad enough if they just broke in and attempt to take something, but when you break into a home, kill an animal and then attempt to burn the place, that’s very disturbing,” Sheriff Ronnie Ingram said, according to the Daily Mail.

Hailey Davis, who identified herself as Pate’s sister on Facebook, said in a post her sister was “forced to do this, not because she wanted to.”

Both teens were booked at Lenoir County Sheriff’s Detention center, where they each are being held on a $50,000 bond.

All I know is Australia is where kangaroos and Elle Macpherson are from.

Prof says Australia not a country, fails student who says it is — and displeased school takes action

Southern New Hampshire University fired an adjunct professor who insisted Australia isn’t a country and gave an “F” on an assignment to a perplexed student who said that it is, the New Hampshire Union Leader reported.

Lauren Keane, the school’s assistant vice president of communications, told the paper that a BuzzFeed story about the interaction between the professor and online student Ashley Arnold of Idaho was true.

Arnold — a 27-year-old stay-at-home mom — compared social media use in the United States to Australia for a class assignment, but the professor penalized Arnold in several sections, which resulted in a failing grade.

And the prof’s main issue? Arnold wrote that Australia is a country.

Wrong, said the prof, who corrected Arnold by saying Australia is a continent.

Arnold responded that the land down under is a country as well as a continent, and she sent the prof evidence to back it up.

Here’s a bit of how the prof responded to Arnold’s pushback, via BuzzFeed:

I will gladly re-examine your week 2 milestone project report.

But before I do I want you to understand that any error in a project can invalidate the entire research project.

Research is like dominoes, if you accidentally knock over one piece the entire set will also fall.

Australia is a continent; it is not a country. That error made it nearly impossible for you to accurately complete your week 2 research outline correctly.

Well, after further review — and after Arnold contacted SNHU — her grade on the assignment was changed to a B+ and the professor was let go, Keane told the Union Leader.

“Following an investigation, we have replaced the instructor as we strive to adhere to the highest standards of integrity and accuracy in educating our students,” Keane told the paper in an email.

The school isn’t identifying the professor in question “at the student’s request,” Keane also told the Union Leader, adding that the adjunct professor “does not live in New Hampshire and does not work on campus.”

What’s more, Arnold got an apology from the college — and a refund for the class, the paper said.

A naked dude in my car bound and gagged? What's the big deal? I call that, 'Friday night.'

Pastor insists nothing happened with bound naked man in car

A Pennsylvania pastor insists he was merely counseling a naked man cops found bound with nylon rope in a parked car on a residential street, saying “I have nothing to hide.”

George Nelson Gregory, 61, was sitting in the back seat of a car parked outside a house in Homestead when cops — responding to a call for a suspicious vehicle — spotted a naked man bound with nylon rope in the front seat around 11:30 p.m. on Friday, KDKA reported.

A witness told police the naked man got out of the car in full view from his daughter’s window.

Gregory told the officers that he and other unidentified man were “just playing” in a consensual setting, adding that they “meet up from time to time to play with each other,” according to a criminal complaint obtained by the station.

And despite being inside a car on a well-lit public street — one witness said he saw the naked man from his daughter’s window — Gregory believed they were in a private setting, cops said.

Update:

Letter with white powder for Trump Jr. calls him 'awful,' says he'll get what he 'deserves'

The written contents of an envelope containg a white powder received Monday by Donald Trump Jr.’s wife said the president's son would get what he "deserves," the NYPD confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday.

"You’re an awful person and now you get what you deserve," the threatening note read, according to police.

President Trump’s daughter-in-law, Vanessa, opened the letter addressed to her husband around 10 a.m. She was subsequently taken to the hospital as a precaution, along with two others, police said.

A team of hazmat workers began decontaminating the couple’s apartment in New York City and the substance was eventually deemed “non-hazardous” after being tested, officials said.

The “white powder,” according to the New York Post, was thought to be cornstarch.

Trump Jr. tweeted Monday about the “scary situation,” saying it was “Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior.”

The U.S. Secret Service confirmed in a statement that they, along with authorities in New York, were investigating the incident.

Trump Jr. is the eldest son of the president. He married Vanessa in 2005. The couple has five children, but it was unclear if any were home at the time of the incident.

Fox News’ Katherine Lam and Shira Bush contributed to this report.

I hope the guy shows up well.

But saying that his last known local was 1000 block of Wilshire Blvd doesn't seem real bad.

People on the streets of New York mistake ‘Communist Manifesto’ for Democratic Party platform

The 1848 “Communist Manifesto,” written by German philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, is sounding an awful lot like someone you know as of late. Could it be the Democrats?

DING DING DING!!!!!

In a funny, but not-so-funny PragerU video, several passersby on the streets of New York city were asked whether or not a statement read by PragerU Host Ami Horowitz stemmed from the “Communist Manifesto” or the Democratic Party’s platform.

Sadly, some struggled miserably to decipher which party platform each statement came from.

“1. We will push for a societal transformation,” stated the host. “‘Communist Manifesto,'” the young NYU student replied incorrectly.

“2. We have established new classes, new conditions of oppressions, new forms of struggles that replace the old ones,” stated Horowitz to another unlucky passerby. “Democratic Party platform,” said the young man. Wrong again.

Watch the video below.
