      Only the media thinks islam is a billion lone wolves doing the exact same thing they’ve done for 1400 years.

      Just start calling these Islamic attacks.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I just read there’s still 23 in Critical Care with horrific injuries from the Manchester Arena bombing. So sad 😦

  2. helenk3 says:

    yes he did.

    does anyone else think, this is a weekend that we honor those who died for our freedom and find that an American president ordered government departments to spy on American people?
    I hope this breaks wide open and consequences are paid for all those involved.

    Ok, first item she has worn that I don’t like. She has been wearing a lot of Dolce and Gabbana on this trip, so maybe she wore this jacket as a favor to them.

    • votermom says:

      Awful jacket! It must be a favor to them, like you said.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I think it works on Melania because of the simple and neutral dress underneath. Michelle couldn’t pull this off because she’d wear a zebra print foofy dress with a leopard print boob belt to cinch her fashionista cred with her moron worshippers 😀

        • Miranda says:

          I’m with Denise on that. Due to the plain dress, it works. Not something I’d wear, but I think it’s ok on her given the rest of the outfit.

        • lateblum says:

          What Denise said! 😉

    • Jeffhas says:

      And this is one of my favorite looks of hers. Melania has a clean, pure aesthetic most of time, but you have to have a little ‘party’ now and then for a little extra attention and drama. This jacket looks like it’s very high quality – which will make it a classic. This is a jacket/coat my wife would love… want less drama?/ take it off and set it on a chair for a while… MO would wear a dress or shirt or pants that would be this loud – uh oh, can’t tone that down in any way quick – attention whore.

    • Constance says:

      It’s fun! But it is wearing her.

    • Dora says:

      I think it looks very attractive on Melania, but I can’t imagine why it costs $51,000. That’s a lot of dollars!

      • Jeffhas says:

        $51,000 !

        Holy cripes…

        Sadly when the Target version comes out it will not look nearly as well done, then it will be sofa cover/drapes as Swannie mentions.

      • lateblum says:

        Someone suggested (in one of the links) that the artistic work plus fittings, plus flying the clothing and seamstresses to Melania also contribute to the cost.
        It’s somewhat of an explanation. If Moochelle had worn something like that, she’d have needed at least 3 times the amount of fabric and 4 times the work hours just to get it around her shoulders and hips.
        I could never wear anything like that (now) but when I was younger, I might have tried. 😉

    • swanspirit says:

      I love it. Floral done right, with whimsy. It’s not the sofa slipcover, or the tablecloth, or the drapes. And it’s a jacket, not a dress.

    • mothy67 says:

      We are also not seeing it in the bright sun. Might look totally different.

  5. helenk3 says:

    well bomber billy ayres is a teacher and a democratic political consultant, so I guess honoring another bomber with is parade is ok with today’s dems.
    but the NYPD and the NYFD ,you know those guys who have to deal with the consequences of bombers do not agree.

    Don’t know if you guys ever ran across this guy, but he is a funny, Trump supporting, redneck.
    Down to earth no bullshit.
    Great videos.

    • lyn says:

      I would buy it if “are” replaced “is.”

      • DeniseVB says:

        One of those tricky grammar rules I always mess up. Looked it up, and still confused 🙂

        As media is a collective noun, you can treat it as singular or plural depending on the sense of your sentence. The words agenda, data, criteria, and media are the Latin plural forms of agendum, datum, criterion, and medium.

        Then again, I had to look up how to spell grammar.

      • Somebody says:

        Picky, picky……is our children learning, LMAO!

  10. taw46 says:

    Here’s Mommy!

  11. Dora says:

    I really do think her mind is going.


    Nancy Pelosi complains Trump not visiting countries in alphabetical order

    Has Nancy Pelosi completely lost her mind? Or does she just have to complain about everything President Trump does?

    During a press briefing on Thursday, the House Minority Leader criticized the president’s choice of visiting Saudi Arabia first during his inaugural foreign trip.

  12. DeniseVB says:

    Jimmy should do more of this and less politics, wonder if his ratings would go up? He can be very entertaining…….

  13. Somebody says:

    Hmmmm, Klown hasn’t been around much…..coincidence??? I report, you decide.

  14. taw46 says:

    • taw46 says:

      I didn’t know C-SPAN was covering these events.

    • Jeffhas says:

      Looks like Mommy wear the pants in that family.

      … but she does look good in jeans. (When I cover up the face).

      • DeniseVB says:

        I think she looks pretty great for a women in her 60’s (?). Not sure if “casual afternoon on the sailboat” style was appropriate for the event?

        • mothy67 says:

          Makes her stand out though. Not easy to do with all eyes on Melania.

        • Jeffhas says:

          I think too much sun… after 30, maybe 40 stay out of the sun or just a ‘gentle touch’ to give you a glow (unless you’re a guy and don’t care)… after 60 there ain’t enough moisturizer In the world to keep up with too much sun (see also: Donatella Versace).

          Someone up thread thought she tried to look too young to keep up with her student husband, and that might be spot on – all I know is the head ain’t going with the rest of it for me. If I put my thumb on her face, that figure in those jeans could be a 20-30 something… but when I uncover her face she looks like mommy to all the other women… and aren’t all of those other women pretty close to her age? THEY all look terrific too!

          Ahh whatever, I’m just being petty and spiteful because boy wonder is President of France (and that’s probably a big deal somewhere.)

          Anyways, I like that you guys coined her ‘Mommy’ !!!

          Teacher Mommy…
          Teacher Wife..,

          No, Mommy is best.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Well I have had to listen to a lot of Dump Trump talk today so I am going to wade over to the fashion section for stress relief.

      I think, with the exception of grandma, all the spouses look very nice. The guys get away with suits – but that is not so easy to pull off for the gals. The women seem to have chosen outfits that work with their physiques and colors that suit them. I really like the print peplum dress on from Akie (Japan). Not everyone can wear prints – but she pulls them off with a quiet flair. The dress shows better in other photos.

      As to grandma. Just no. Now had she done this look with a classy silk sweater and some off white palazzo slacks she would have really looked nice and stood out – in a good way. She is tall enough and thin enough to pull them off. Instead she goes for outfits that look like she is stealing items from her granddaughter’s closet. Not to mention other photos show that in close up she has the snaps on the sweater open across her shoulders – ala MO.

      • CiscoKid says:

        Akie of Japan.
        Tks! I was wondering who she is.
        What a wonder splash of color, the both of them.
        Akie and Melania just draw your eyes toward them.

    This is a funny article.

    Bill Donahue tells it like it is. 🙂



    Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the way the media are playing a photo of President Trump and Pope Francis:

    The poor thing. That pneumonia can take forever to go away.

  20. John Denney says:

    Trump really needs to get the EPA under control. Example:

    The article calls the style of plow a “ripper”, which I think is also referred to as “chisel plowing”, which is a technique that loosens the soil without turning it over, greatly reducing soil erosion.

  21. helenk3 says:

    I grew up with tv shows like ” I was a communist spy for the FBI’ and FBI Files.
    even after all the stuff came out about Hoover, I still believed they were the good guys.
    now with Comey, I am not too sure they can be trusted

    • CiscoKid says:

      Excellent catch.
      I too agree it is a must read.
      I downloaded it for future reference.
      Damn fine piece of writing.

  22. helenk3 says:

    this is one awesome lady. I think she and Trump could work together.
    speaking from a country that has been under attack from many different sources throughout history , her words have meaning

    • mothy67 says:

      I just cringe at the thought of her song about the attack. I cannot listen to those type songs. I know jts cathartic to write and sing for the artist and that some people relate.
      Not me that Eric Clapton song is too much.

      • lateblum says:

        I’m right there with you, mothy. That Clapton song was too difficult to listen to.

  23. taw46 says:

  24. DeniseVB says:

    Yay ! Lizzy Warren has a challenger, a strong Trump guy too. Just sent him $10.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I pick 5 to send $10 to, mostly as a gesture of support from another state. I think one will be Antoino Sabato and the guy challenging Maxine Waters. Hopefully, there will be a blood challenger to Pelosi 🙂 Of course, this guarantees I’ll get craploads of donation requests for the rest of my life.

      • 49erDweet says:

        Good plan. I’ll send them some more – but in your name so you’ll get the phone calls and letters.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Yeah, I donated to PETA a few decades ag0, I still get email from my *purposely* misspelled name *DeNice* Didn’t know Key and Peele would steal it, lol….

    • lateblum says:

      Remember that silver, grey and black Beyoncé get-up Moochelle wore? the one that looked like she was just landing from outer space. (I know that’s pretty generic.) Well, thank goddess those days are over! 🙂

    • Jeffhas says:

      See this is just f’ing gorgeous.

      Wow. WOW !!!! Woof!!!

    • DeniseVB says:

      I read earlier, the entire town is shut down, with hopes all attendees are resting with peace of mind. Dear Lort, I’m exhausted just following the First Family’s travels on twitter. Melania doesn’t’ event have bags under her eyes. Not fair /snork.

      • Constance says:

        I keep looking at Melania’s ankles to see if they are swelling up in the heat and with walking around in heels all the time. I almost said “clomping around in heels all the time” but Melania doesn’t clomp, not even going down slippery looking stairs in heels. I clomp around when I wear heels. I don’t quite look like a football lineman in heels but it’s not a look I can pull off with easy grace.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I wore Papagallo spikey heels in the 80’s when my dh was a big sh*t in the military, threw them out the day he retired.

        • taw46 says:

          I wore those spikey heels until about the mid 90’s, then I was done. I must admit, they look great. But you reach a point where your feet say, no more!

        • 49erDweet says:

          I’ve realized for some time how well put together she is, but only recently noted her great height and stature. Good show!

        • mothy67 says:

          Not a big fan of her belts. I liked the dresses the ladies wore on Revenge.

    • CiscoKid says:

      I looked at the pictures, fabulous place.
      But TGIF and cocktail hour started 2 hours ago and I couldn’t help myself.
      Silly, I know, but I couldn’t get Bette Davis out of my head.

  27. Dora says:

    Watch everything here. The country is beautiful; the music is beautiful; Melania is beautiful. Everything is beautiful. 🙂


    G7 Opening Ceremony – La Scala Philharmonic in Ancient Theater of Taormina, Italy…

    At the ancient Greek Theater in Taormina, Italy. G7 leaders, their spouses and other EU summit caviar socialist officials attend a sunset concert by La Scala Philharmonic Orchestra.

    • kanaughty says:

      Question, how can there be obstruction of justice when there is no foundational case and with no evidence to have obstructed against?

      • lyn says:

        Hillary and Obama are obstructing democracy. Jail them!

      • kanaughty says:

        It’s seriously like if a friend keeps trying to call you something you never were like a cheerleader, and i say, dude, can you get off that already, i was never a cheerleader. And then they yell obstruction of justice! Because i told them to stop investigating me ever being a cheerleader. Lol!

      • CiscoKid says:

        When one drinks deeply from the well of kool-aid, it makes sense.
        And the colors, oh man the colors.

    • Jeffhas says:

      So awesome!! The winning just keeps coming!

    • CiscoKid says:

      I’m beginning to think that Waters, Cummings, Pelosi and Hillary have lost touch with reality.
      May it’s the med’s their taking, because nobody can talk and act the way they do w/o some kind of drug in their system. Really.
