    In another display of her incredible ability to juggle parenting and White House life, President Trump's eldest daughter hit two very different events on Sunday. Ivanka Trump has used social media as a window into her family life since her father's 2016 election win, offering the American public a look at her day-to-day activities with husband Jared Kushner and their three children -- Arabella, Joseph and Theodore. Ivanka Trump posted to Twitter on Sunday that she had taken her kids to a "Monster Jam" event in the Washington area. "Epic first Monster Truck show with the kids!," Ivanka Trump wrote....

    The Russians did it! That’s probably what liberal media would be shrieking if the epic Oscars gaffe had not been captured on live TV. After spending two hours needling President Trump, Hollywood got egg on its face bigly after the wrong winner was announced for best picture. The bizarre turn of events unfolded when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were presenting the Academy Award for best picture. Beatty was handed an envelope that was supposed to contain the winner.

    Completely screwing up the most important announcement at the Academy Awards ceremony might seem monumental to some. But I have a story far more harrowing, if not completely self-serving and inconsequential in scope.

    Older than dirt? Then you just have to appreciate this one. Young people forget that we old people had a career before we retired... Charley, a new retiree-greeter at Wal-Mart, just couldn't seem to get to work on time. Every day he was 5, 10, 15 minutes late. But he was a good worker, really tidy, clean-shaven, sharp-minded and a real credit to the company and obviously demonstrating their "Older Person Friendly" policies. One day the boss called him into the office for a talk. "Charley, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a bang-up...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 26 Feb 2017 | John Semmens
    After the California legislature memorialized former State Senator Tom Hayden, who died last October, Sen. Janet Nguyen (R-Garden Grove) attempted to offer another perspective on the former 1960s radical anti-war agitator. Presiding Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) ordered her to shut up and when she wouldn't, had her physically removed from the senate chamber. "I realize that many of the senators who honored the late Sen. Hayden may have been ignorant of his role in prolonging the Vietnam War and enabling the Communists to kill millions of my former countrymen," Nguyen said. "Rather than let his misdeeds go down the...

    Bolivia’s President Evo Morales said that the legal team representing his country in the maritime trial at the International Court in The Hague is prepared to “demolish” Chile’s arguments. In mid-February, Morales met in the Netherlands with his team of international lawyers due to the need to prepare a response to the impending Chilean counter-suit. On Wednesday, at a press conference, the president said that “The meeting was to review details for our legal defense based upon historical, legal, and technical issues and, above all, a proposal to demolish the Chilean counter-suit.” Legal arguments will be presented by attorney Eduardo Rodríguez...

    Montana Governor Steve Bullock (D) vetoed legislation that would have made the state a “Constitutional carry” state. That is, individuals would be permitted to exercise their right to bear arms as defined in the US Constitution’s Second Amendment without having to obtain state or local government permission to do so. In his veto message, Bullock declared that “the idea that an individual is qualified to determine whether he needs to carry a firearm is absurd. Selfish concern for self-preservation at the expense of broader social goals must not derail sensible gun control. Right now, far too many people have guns....

    Misinterpreting the Words When my twin daughters were young, I taught them to say this prayer before going to bed. As I listened outside their door, I could hear them say, "Give us this steak and daily bread, and forgive us our mattresses." My husband and I always had a good laugh over this. That was over 50 years ago, and the memory still remains in my heart. Groton, Mass. My mother spent her early childhood saying, "Hail Mary, full of grapes" Missoula, Mont. My son, who is in nursery school, said, "Our Father, who art in Heaven, how didja...

    He’s 83 now, and doesn’t look all that familiar, until you hear his schtick. Growling like a dog, clucking like a chicken, whirring like a helicopter, it all comes out of Lenny Schultz. It all comes back to you if you’re old enough to remember television from the late 1960’s through the 70’s, and you recognize the man as a living, breathing comedy legend. "They would go nuts, the people, it was very hard to follow my act because I’m doing silly and crazy things," Schultz said, reminiscing about his glory days. "That was my reputation, unique and different and...

    President Trump invited the Pope for lunch on his mega yacht, the Pope accepted and during lunch, a puff of wind blew the Pontiff's hat off, right into the water. It floated off about 50 feet, then the wind died down and it just floated in place. The crew and the secret service were scrambling to launch a boat to go get it, when Trump waved them off, saying "Never mind, boys, I'll get it." The Donald climbed over the side of the yacht, walked on the water to the hat, picked it up, walked back on the water, climbed...

    LOS ANGELES — One day last summer, Lin-Manuel Miranda, on break from “Hamilton,” stopped by neighbor Jimmy Fallon’s house in the Hamptons. They both love music and Fallon has a listening room in the basement, so it wasn’t long before they were downstairs sharing another passion: “Weird Al” Yankovic. “I said, ‘Do you know “Polka Party!”?’ ” Fallon says. “He’s like, ‘Oh my gosh, I know it word for word.’ ” Fallon threw Yankovic’s 1986 record on the turntable, and the Broadway phenomenon and the late-night TV star sang along to an accordion-driven medley that covers 12 songs in three minutes, from...

    WASHINGTON — Donald Trump is stuck in his own skull. “He lives inside his head, where he runs the same continuous loop of conflict with people he turns into enemies for the purposes of his psychodrama,” says Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio. Because Trump holds Thor’s hammer, we must keep trying to figure out his aggrieved style of reasoning. So we’re stuck in Trump’s head with him.And the more Trump turns journalists into whipping boys and targets, the more he sounds like a dictator himself. “When Trump was a kid, he was obsessed with intimidating other boys,” D’Antonio says. “Prior to...
