Trump Claims Ketchup Would Never Have Hit Wall if Giuliani Had Not Ducked

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Disputing Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony before the January 6th committee, Donald J. Trump claimed that ketchup would never have wound up dripping down the Oval Office wall if Rudy Giuliani had not ducked.

“Lyin’ Cassidy said that I threw my lunch at the wall,” Trump wrote on his social network, Truth Social. “I actually threw it at Rudy Giuliani, and he ducked.”

“It was a perfect throw,” he boasted. Trump said that, had the former New York mayor not ducked, “ketchup would have been dripping down Rudy’s head like his hair die [sic] does.”

Trump expressed some surprise that Giuliani was able to evade the flying lunch. “When you consider how bombed he was, the guy had incredible reflexes,” the former President observed.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Admits Arming Fetuses Is 'Impossible'

But she does believe "children should be trained with firearms," Greene said at a House Rules Committee meeting.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) admitted Friday that arming fetuses just wouldn’t work. She was responding to a baiting remark by Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) as the two argued at a House Rules Committee meeting about the Second Amendment and private armed militias.

“Do you think the students should be armed?” Raskin asked her. “I think children should be trained with firearms,” Greene replied. “I definitely do. I think that’s very important.” “So they can repel someone who comes in” to a school? Raskin asked. “I said I believe children should be trained with firearms so they understand how to use them and understand the safety,” Greene answered.

She then veered into a rant about abortion.

“Abortion kills babies!” she said. “We’re talking about kids being killed; abortion kills innocent children. They can’t protect themselves at all from this horrific procedure.” “Sounds like you want to arm them,” Raskin cracked. “That’s impossible,” she replied, completely seriously. “That’s impossible, Mr. Raskin.”

https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2022/06/22/westminster-dog-show/



A floppy-eared bloodhound named Trumpet was awarded Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show finale Wednesday night, the first of his breed to take the competition’s top award.

Trumpet was the winner of the hound category, strutting his facial folds and floppy ears as he bested other hounds, soaking up the spotlight and cheers alongside handler and owner Heather Helmer. His father, Nathan, has also won the hound group at Westminster, but never Best in Show. “I’m just ecstatic,” Helmer said. Outside the ring, she said, Trumpet “has a lot of attitude and he’s a little crazy.”



Trumpet bested six other finalists:

perfect example of racism (IMHO) by the Alabama media on FB

WAFF is a television station in Huntsville, Alabama



which of course leads to a comment like this:





but then, on another site, I found the shooter's actual pic

Progressive cuts ties with insurance agency over racist Juneteenth sign

https://www.insurancebusinessmag.com/us/news/breaking-news/progressive-cuts-ties-with-insurance-agency-over-racist-juneteenth-sign-410555.aspx?Region=United+States



An insurance agency in Maine has found itself facing backlash after it put up a “racist” sign on Juneteenth, NPR reported. A sign taped to Millinocket-based insurance agency Harry E Reed Insurance Agency, which is affiliated with Progressive Insurance, said the business was closed for the day, and told visitors to “enjoy your fried chicken and collard greens”.

Progressive confirmed to Insurance Business that it will be terminating the relationship with the insurance agency. A Progressive spokesperson said: “We’re aware and appalled by the sign recently posted at the Harry E Reed Agency and are terminating our relationship with the agency. At Progressive, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) are fundamental to our Core Values.

“We’re committed to creating an environment where our people feel welcomed, valued and respected and expect that anyone representing Progressive to take part in this commitment. The sign is in direct violation of that commitment and doesn’t align with our company’s core values and code of conduct.” An image of the racist sign, shared on Monday, caused outrage on social media.

Allura Stillwagon, who shared the sign with her online following, told NPR: "I had to read it more than once because I thought it was something [my mom] saw on Facebook. But when she said it was a business [in town], I was immediately disgusted.” "People have this idea that Maine isn't very racist and that it's pretty liberal. But up north, it's not like that at all,” Stillwagon said.
