Women's magazines are notorious for their undying devotion to Hillary; but sometimes, they go a bit too far. Hopefully, if you don't get sick, this slideshow will spark some chortles and eye-rolls.

Jimmy Fallon’s back at his Trump act. But this time, the Tonight Show host was joined on stage by avid Hillz supporter Barbra Streisand for an evening of musical Trump bashing. Parodying the Annie Get Your Gun song “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better,” Fallon crooned: “Any wall you can build, I can build taller.” Later, he sang “I can build casinos and deport Latinos,” to which Streisand parried: “I can vote for Hillary … she’s going to win, and she’s going to win HUUUGE.”

The New York Times editorial page has already raged that any opposition to the wishes of transgender activists is the new Jim Crow. Now it’s imposing its wrath on conservative politicians. Ken Paxton, the Republican Attorney General of Texas, secured an injunction against the Obama administration’s warning schools it would deny federal funds to any establishment failing to bow deeply to the bathroom wishes of transgender students.

The Times feels that Paxton opposes "common sense." That's Orwellian.

Editor’s Note: Normal people might find some of this offensive. (We hope.)

If you want to be a victim, become a liberal. It doesn’t matter whether you want to go online to whine about your lot in life or whether you want to harm others with everything from shutting down free speech to fiddling with the climate. Both work.

Disturbing news broke Thursday that for the third time in a week US Navy ships in or near the Persian Gulf were harassed by vessels maned by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. But the situation escaladed Thursday when the vessels ignored warnings and got close enough to for the USS Squall to draw warning shots. As provocative as the actions of the Iranian vessels were, they did not seem important enough for the “Big Three” network news outlet who didn’t report about the engagement at all, Thursday evening.

Many liberals are certain that a Donald Trump presidency would be an unprecedented fiasco, but The Washington Monthly’s D.R. Tucker isn’t among them. In a Sunday post, Tucker suggested that in terms of racism and overall “incompetence,” a Trump administration would be a sort of sequel to George W. Bush’s, and speculated that Republicans who are backing Hillary Clinton may be, “on a very subtle psychological level…acknowledging that [Trump] would equal, if not surpass, Dubya in his dimwittedness.”

On Thursday night, Fusion/Univision anchor Jorge Ramos met his match in Fox News Channel’s Kelly File host Megyn Kelly, who proceeded call out Ramos on his claim that journalists shouldn’t be neutral in their coverage of Donald Trump and wondered if he’d do the same for Hillary Clinton since many consider her to be a liar like some Latinos consider Trump a racist.

The war of words in the 2016 race for president reached a new level Thursday when both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton accused one another of being a “bigot.” On CBS Evening News, fill-in anchor James Brown seemed disappointed in them, starting the show off saying, “The presidential campaign may have hit a low point today, and there are still 75 days to go.” While Brown seemed disappointed, both ABC and NBC took the opportunity to pounce on Trump and praise Clinton’s attacks.

Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's All In with Chris Hayes on MSNBC, Georgetown University professor and former MSNBC political analyst Michael Eric Dyson was the latest liberal to claim that a general slogan like "Make America Great Again" really has a racist "code" of "white nationalism" as he claimed that even a generic reference to the "nation" of America implies "whiteness" "by default."

Reporters at the State Department's daily briefing were very impatient with the bobbing and weaving of spokespersons Mark Toner on Tuesday and Elizabeth Trudeau on Wednesday when they were questioned about $1.31 billion in payments out of the U.S. Treasury's Judgement Fund listed as having occurred on January 19, two days after several hostages were freed. It was also the first banking business day of that week.

If these journalists, who can't be expected to know everything about banking system mechanics, had better help — or any help — back at their main DC offices, the world might know more about these transactions than the Obama administration has thus far been willing to admit.

Earlier this week, we brought you the story of Russell Wilson’s wedding planner, and her statement that the Wilsons scrapped North Carolina as a potential wedding destination, due to the state’s HB2 law regarding transgender bathrooms. Enclosed in that story was my fervent hope that the wedding planner got it all wrong, and that the proudly Christian Wilson had decided to forego the Tarheel State for some other reason. Well…that didn’t happen.

On Thursday, CBS and NBC's evening newscasts played up the "controversy exploding around the world over so-called burkinis," after several French city governments banned the Islamic swimming garment. CBS's James Brown previewed the subject by trumpeting, "Nuns go to the beach in their habits; so why has France banned the burkini?" NBC's Kelly Cobiella spotlighted protests against the ban, and gave a slanted description of the burkini: "A bikini that's more like a burqa, covering almost everything, and designed to give Muslim women more freedom."

How can over 90% of Native Americans be wrong? Well, according to USA Today, it’s when they say that the word Redskin is not a slur. Badly needing a comeback to the Washington Post poll in May, where American Indians resoundingly rejected the idea of the term ‘Redskin’ as a slur, USA Today decided to seek out an expert to tell American Indians just how silly and wrong they are

“It's important to say right up front that this isn't a story about pedophile priests,” began the NPR reporter on Wednesday night....in a story with the online headline “Catholic Church Groups Fight Bills To Revive Old Sex Abuse Cases.”

Some legislators want to put in a "grace period" for new sex-abuse lawsuits outside the statute of limitations. The people who call their show All Things Considered didn’t consider this: Can we open the statute of limitations on rape allegations for Juanita Broaddrick to sue Bill Clinton? Would that seem fair?

According to The Atlantic’s Michelle Cottle, a Hillary Clinton presidency will not only be a win for women as the first woman takes the White House – but it will usher in an “era of the bitch,” not because Clinton is one, but because Cottle believes a Clinton presidency will create an uptick in the amount of sexism and misogyny in the United States.
