Easter at the White House Has Been Ruined…

(from March 2017) | Queerty.com

Who thinks we may have a repeat “Easter brush-off” by #DumpTrump and Melania ?

queerty.com: Easter at the White House has been ruined thanks to Melania Trump. Sad! |Queerty

Since 1878, the Easter Egg Roll has always been coordinated by the first lady. Seeing as how Mrs. Trump not only lives 200 miles away from the White House, but has yet to bother putting together an official staff, this year’s event, like Trump’s numbers in the popular vote, is expected to underperform bigly.

The reason Melania Trump couldn’t be bothered to plan the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, a nearly 140-year American tradition, is because she was too busy coordinating her own private, invitation-only Easter Egg Roll held for the very rich and powerful at Mar-a-Lago.

CPAC Speaker Just Publicly Called Out Trump’s Infidelity. What Happened Next is Disturbing

CPAC got weird, and not for the reasons you’d think. Yes there was the requisite guru-ification of Trump and the sorely outdated chants of “lock her up,” but that was all to be expected.

It was conservative writer and a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center Mona Charen who defied expectation and actually took a surprisingly reasonable – and therefor unpopular – position on a panel called #UsToo: Left out by the Left.

When asked what gets her “riled up” about modern feminism, Charen surprised (and then pissed off) the crowd with this hot take.

 

The conservative writer dared to criticize the president and quickly paid the price.

How the 18th-Century Gay Bar Survived and Thrived in a Deadly Environment

Like men’s club houses, molly houses were also places people went simply to socialize, gossip, drink and smoke. WELLCOME COLLECTION/CC BY 4.0

Welcome to the molly house. 

In 18th and early-19th-century Britain, a “molly” was a commonly used term for men who today might identify as gay, bisexual or queer. Sometimes, this was a slur; sometimes, a more generally used noun, likely coming from mollis, the Latin for soft or effeminate. A whole molly underworld found its home in London…

George Will: Trump is Now the Worst-Ever ‘President’

Will wrote that Trump’s support of Moore earned him the ranking of the “nation’s worst president.”

“By joining Stephen K. Bannon’s buffoonery on Moore’s behalf, the 45th president planted an exclamation point punctuating a year of hitherto unplumbed presidential depths,” he wrote, referring to the former White House chief strategist and current head of Breitbart News.
