Comedian Negin Farsad traveled all over the U.S. to clear up misconceptions about Islam while making people laugh. She calls this form of activism "social justice comedy."

...For April Fools' Day, the Russian Foreign Ministry put out an “official joke” — a video of a proposed voice-mail message for its embassy answering machines. In the clip, recorded in Russian and English, an automated recording tells callers to press 1 for “a call from a Russian diplomat to your political opponent.” You can press 2 “to use the services of Russian hackers,” or 3 "to request election interference." (The English portion of the recording begins about 26 seconds into the video.)

The “pilot” message was posted on the (Russian Foreign) ministry's Facebook page, nestled between serious articles about bilateral discussions with Kyrgyzstan and daily briefings. It's billed as something being tested for Russian embassies and consulates...

Has anyone checked to make sure we have an extradition treaty with all the countries Trump is visiting?

“Four score and seven years ago — that’s a long time ago, very long — our fathers, who spoke about this at great length, did what perhaps has virtually never been done before: brought forth on this continent, a new nation, a very great new nation — there’s no question about that — conceived in liberty — and that is so important! — and dedicated to the amazing proposition — and they felt very strongly about this, I can tell you — that all men are created equal. Number one for me.”

Time for Donald Trump to close, sell or restructure Kentucky

To Make America Great Again, we can’t afford any namby-pamby political correctness — we need to tell it like it is. Low productivity states (subsidized by our more productive states) need to carry their own weight or go.
