‘Jon Stewart’ …. “🐢 Won’t Let Mitch McConnell Off That Easy … ‘Bent Out of Shape?’ 🐢 …. “!!

STOP JACKING AROUND

I watched last night. Prior to that I’d watched Jon’s emotional appearance in the House hearings a few days ago.

There’s no describing McConnell’s demeanor on a FOX interview when he said he didn’t understand why “Jon Stewart is so bent out of shape”.

That showed complete entitlement, callousness and disregard for others. Mitch is drunk on power.

See for yourself!

Jon Stewart Fires Back at Mitch McConnell on ‘Colbert’: Stop ‘Jacking Around’ 9/11 First Responders

The ex-‘Daily Show’ host went off on McConnell for saying he was ‘bent out of shape’ over the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund bill during Stephen Colbert’s ‘Late Show’ Monday night, June 17.

When Stewart reappeared from under his old friend Stephen Colbert’s desk on The Late Show on Monday night, June 17, he had a lot to get off his chest. Asked by Colbert if he was “bent out of shape,” Stewart replied, “No, Mitch McConnell, I am not bent out of shape! I’m in fine shape.” Then he added, “Well, I am out of shape,” before explaining that he is only “bent out of shape” on behalf of the first responders.

As for McConnell’s suggestion that he’s “looking for some way to take offense” after members skipped his hearing, Stewart said, “I feel like an asshole,” sarcastically calling the whole situation a “huge misunderstanding.”

“I didn’t know that they were busy,” he said of Congress. “I didn’t mean to interrupt them … with their jobs!”

“Honestly, Mitch McConnell, you really want to go with the ‘we’ll get to it when we get to it argument’ for the heroes of 9/11?” Stewart asked. “Listen, Senator, I know that your species isn’t known for moving quickly.”

“Would that be a turtle reference, Jon?” Colbert asked, alluding to a classic Daily Show bit.

Taylor Swift’s “You Need To Calm Down” is a pop anthem for equality and understanding

The singer debuted a new video for the song on “Good Morning America” Monday, June 17, in the midst of LGBTQ Pride Month and included a call to action.

“Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all our citizens equally,” reads an on-screen message at end of the video.

“Please sign my petition for Senate support of the Equality Act on Change.org.”

The Equality Act, if passed, would amend the Civil Rights Act to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

The video features numerous celebrities who identify as LGBTQ, including Ellen DeGeneres, Billy Porter, RuPaul, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Adam Lambert, Todrick Hall, Hayley Kiyoko, Adam Rippon, Chester Lockhart, Dexter Mayfield, Hannah Hart, Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness and Tan France to name a few.

Some are met by chanting protestors holding anti-gay signs.

’VICE News‘ travels to Puerto Rico …. “🇵🇷 Crucial Aid after Hurricane María is still in Limbo 🇵🇷 …. “!!

~~June 15, 2019~~

PUERTO RICO AND HURRICANE MARIA AID

I wasn’t in Puerto Rico for this catastrophic event. I was aware of what could happen because I’ve been through hurricanes while I lived there. None, however were as monstrous as Hurricane María.

I sat at home and waited for news and communication from my friends and family.

Then … the response of the ‘master‘ of Puerto Rico, the mighty, imperialistic U.S. of A. flabbergasted me!

But, what can anyone expect from the ‘Squatter in the Oval‘?

… and the Puerto Ricans are still waiting!

This video speaks for itself.

====================================

Hurricane María was a deadly Category 5 hurricane that devastated Dominica, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico in September 20, 2017.

It is regarded as the worst natural disaster on record to affect those islands and is also the deadliest Atlantic hurricane since Jeanne in 2004.

Maria then directly hit Puerto Rico as a Category 4 with 155-mph winds, making it the third-strongest storm to make landfall in the U.S. It was even stronger than Hurricane Irma when it roared into the Florida Keys Sept. 10.

After months of negotiations, Congress finally passed a $19.1 billion disaster aid bill on Monday. The bill, which Drumpf has said he will sign, will provide billions in aid to flood-ravaged Texas, wildfire areas in California, and hard-hit Puerto Rico. But the $1.5 billion that the bill allots to the island’s recovery is just a fraction of the money the government has already promised – but failed to deliver.

“I think that the fact that we are not a state has essentially given the platform for the Administration to give a different and unfair treatment to Puerto Rico,” Omar Marrero, the head of recovery in Puerto Rico, told VICE News.

Without proper funds, Puerto Rico has been slapping Band-aids on things, building only temporary infrastructure – and leaving tens of thousands living in shaky, damaged homes.

“Across all Puerto Rico, the only fixes, the only work that is being done, is emergency work,” said Marrero.

María Cruz-Vega can sometimes hear the foundation creaking when she’s in bed at night. There are holes in her floor – and her walls – and she prays the blue-tarp roof that covers her home won’t collapse on her and her family.

Nearly 30,000 households in Puerto Rico are still living like this, literally without a real roof over their heads, almost two years after Hurricane María pummeled the island.

So far, Cruz-Vega has only received about $3,000 from FEMA. She may be able to get more aid soon.

VICE News traveled to Puerto Rico to see what recovery looks like almost two years after Hurricane María, just as a new hurricane season is getting started.

YOU NEED TO CALM DOWN

Just in time for Pride Month!

In her most political move yet.

She just released a lyric video. Will wait for the ‘people version’.

Hats off!!

Thank you TeTe!!

HortyRex

At midnight on Friday, Taylor Swift dropped her new track “You Need To Calm Down,” in what is her most political effort yet. Sitting just under three minutes, the single is a markedly less saccharine experience than her last single “ME!”, but it’s the lyrics, ardent in their support for the LGBTQ community, which has got the internet very excited.

The first verse is a general middle finger to her internet critics, but then by the second verse, the song takes clear aim at homophobes. It’s perfect timing given it’s currently Pride month, and the lyrics aren’t subtle about those who are against the LGBTQ community.

“Taylor Swift is one of the world’s biggest pop stars,” said Anthony Ramos, Director of Talent Engagement at GLAAD. “The fact that she continues to use her platform and music to support the LGBTQ community and the Equality Act is a true sign of being an ally. ‘

You Need to Calm Down’ is the perfect Pride anthem, and we’re thrilled to see Taylor standing with the LGBTQ community to promote inclusivity, equality, and acceptance this Pride month.”

Taylor Swift‘s new song “You Need to Calm Down” from the upcoming album Lover is basically a gay anthem that is perfect for Pride Month!

In each of the verses, the 29-year-old singer takes aim at different people/groups of people who just need to calm down.

Friday Fun Facts …. “🍍 ‘I’m Just Showing Off my Fine Pineapple’ 🍍 …. ‘“!!

June 14, 2019~~

VERY EXPENSIVE PINEAPPLES

In the American colonies in the 1700’spineapples were no less revered. Imported from the Caribbean islands, pineapples that arrived in America were very expensive – one pineapple could cost as much as $8000 (in today’s dollars).

This high cost was due to the perishability, novelty, exoticism, and scarcity of the fruit.
