Women of SNL release statement in support of Al Franken

Al Franken: A devoted and dedicated family man…

Y‘all may regret that decision, ladies.

From Entertainment Weekly: Women who worked with Al Franken on Saturday Night Live are stepping out to support him — 36 “SNL Women,” to be exact.

The comic-turned-senator, who spent a total of 15 years on the series as a writer and performer, faced sexual misconduct accusations by KABC radio anchor Leeann Tweeden last week, who claimed Franken groped her and kissed her without consent during a USO tour in 2006, and even released a photo of Franken appearing to be grabbing her breasts while she was sleeping. Franken has since apologized and Tweeden accepted it, and now, his former colleagues are speaking out in solidarity with him.

“We feel compelled to stand up for Al Franken, whom we have all had the pleasure of working with over the years on Saturday Night Live (SNL),” begins a statement signed by the 36 women, including Not Ready for Prime Time Players Jane Curtin and Laraine Newman. “What Al did was stupid and foolish, and we think it was appropriate for him to apologize to Ms. Tweeden, and to the public. In our experience, we know Al as a devoted and dedicated family man, a wonderful comedic performer, and an honorable public servant. That is why we are moved to quickly and directly affirm that after years of working with him, we would like to acknowledge that not one of us ever experienced any inappropriate behavior; and mention our sincere appreciation that he treated each of us with the utmost respect and regard.”

Last weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live didn’t exactly go easy on Franken. “Now, I know this photo looks bad, but remember — it also is bad,” Colin Jost quipped during Weekend Update, later adding, “Sure, this was taken before Franken ran for public office, but it was also taken after he was a sophomore in high school. It’s pretty hard to be like, ‘Oh, come on, he didn’t know anything — he was only 55.’”

I believe the womyn supporting Franken wrote this letter before pictures surfaced of Franken groping Arianna Huffington during a photo shoot. Oops…

TDS: Americans root for Kim Jong-un

rosie odonnell apologizes to kim jong un

Traitor Rosie O’Donnell in her apology to dictator Kim Jong-un

When President Trump was elected, I predicted that the TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) would be a thousand times worse than Bush Derangement Syndrome. And my prediction has come true.

Amidst Fat Boy puffing to nuke the US, liberals have shown their allegiance – to a brutal killer and dictator who threatens the United States.

Here are a few examples:

Rep. Keith Ellison: “Kim Jong-un is acting more responsible than Donald Trump.”

Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein said this on MSNBC: “North Korea has been demonized by US, forced to attain Nukes. Russian interference based on circumstantial evidence.”

Fat womyn and angry libtard Rosie O’Donnell promised to leave the US if Trump was elected. Just like a bunch of other celebrities who promised to do the same, she is still living in the good ‘ol USA. She also promoted a “Trump-killing” game.

Rosie has now offered an apology to Kim Jong-un for Donald Trump. See her apology here.

I suggest all of the libtards who are siding with North Korea take a little visit over there to offer your sympathies in person. I DARE YOU.

Liberalism is truly a mental disorder.

Minneapolis mayoral candidate proposes disarming police of guns

serious

He thinks you can bring a night stick to a gun fight. Criminals enthusiastically approve.

From Fox9: MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) – State Representative and Minneapolis mayoral candidate Raymond Dehn is calling for major policing changes, proposing to take away guns from the majority of officers.

Dehn is one of several candidates running to beat current Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges in the fall.

He recently won the support of voters at the Democratic Farmer Labor convention and now his call to disarm police of their side guns is garnering major attention. “I’m not saying they don’t have access to that, just like they have access to more lethal weapons in their cars, I would believe they would still have access to their guns in their cars,” said Dehn.

Dehn says there needs to be drastic changes in how officers are trained. He would be open to officers using other means to protect themselves like a night stick or pepper spray. “I think as we look at how to change policing and how we get officers to not react to use their gun in situations, but learning skills around de-escalation training I think are important,” he said.

Mayor Hodges disagrees with Dehn’s proposal. “And if we are going to talk about changes in gun policy, we shouldn’t start with police officer who are going to be operating in a world with people who have guns,” said Hodges.

Dehn says the details of his no gun proposal are still in the early stages and he wants to sit down with police officers and come up with a strategy that keeps both the community and law enforcement safe.

But the head of the police union, Lt. Bob Kroll, says there’s not a chance this idea would fly with any cop. “I don’t think the people in Minneapolis are logically ready for anything like this,” said Kroll. “Who would ever do the job of policing again? It’s absolutely an absurd thought.”

Fox 9 reached out to several of the other candidates running for mayor. All agreed that there needs to be substantial reform within the police department, but they say stripping officers’ guns is going too far.

Illegal alien, 42, arrested after contacting a special needs teenager, 19, for sex in a school

From WCCO (MINNNEAPOLIS) — Immigration officials say they have taken a man who was accused of having sexual contact with a student in a Twin Cities high school into custody.

David Manito, 42, was set to be released from jail Friday after the Hennepin County Attorney declined charges. An Immigrations and Customs Enforcement official said the agency placed a detainer on Manito following his arrest.

After he left the jail, ICE took him into custody. According to officials, ICE only places detainers on individuals believed to be deportable from the United States.

Manito was arrested after a Snapchat video appeared to show him inside a bathroom stall at Champlin Park High School Wednesday. He was accused of meeting a 19-year-old male student at the school for sex after contacting him on a cell phone app. Police say the student has special needs.

Charges could still be brought at a later date.

Seven-year-old pooch becomes mayor of Minnesota village by a landslide

duke

From Daily Mail: Politics has quite literally gone to the dogs in one Minnesota village, where a seven-year-old pup has been named mayor.

Duke, a Great Pyrenees, won the mayoral election in Cormorant this weekend by a landslide, taking all but two or three votes. The dog, who is often seen eating hamburgers and chips in the village’s pub, will be officially sworn in on Saturday.

All 12 Cormorant villagers paid $1 to vote in the election, with at least nine voting for Duke. Duke won the ceremonial role after a tightly fought campaign against local store owner Richard Sherbrook.

Mr. Sherbrook, who voted for Duke himself, said: ‘I’m going to back the dog 100 per cent. He’s a sportsman and he likes to hunt. He’ll really protect the town. There’s no question that he’ll do a good job representing the community.’

Duke was treated to five hours of grooming after his victory and will receive a salary of a year’s supply of free dog food from Tuffy’s Pet Food store in the nearby village of Perham.

A video of Duke shows him wearing a mayoral hat, but it is not clear if he will have to wear it for all official business.

Villagers say Duke, who is yet to make an inaugural address, has already started making changes in Cormorant. David Rick, who voted for the dog, said: ‘What he does is when the cars are coming through town, they’re hitting town at 50mph, and he slows them down. He follows me wherever I go.’

Tricia Maloney also voted for Duke and said: ‘He doesn’t know how to handle this publicity. He won by a landslide. He’s used to coming to the pub and getting some burgers and some fries or something.’

Don’t Pee On The Golf Course

money

A little old lady was walking down 
the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind 
her. One of the bags was ripped and every once in a while 
a $20 fell out onto the sidewalk. Noticing this, a 
policeman stopped her, and said, “Ma’am, there are $20 
bills falling out of that bag.” “Oh, really? Darn it!” 
said the little old lady. “I’d better go back and see if I 
can find them. Thanks for telling me officer. “Well, now, 
not so fast,” said the cop. Where did you get all that 
money? You didn’t steal it, did you?”

“Oh, no, no”, said the old lady.

“You see, my back yard is right next to a Golf course
A lot of Golfers come and pee through a knot hole in 
my fence, right into my flower garden. It used to really 
tick me off. Kills the flowers, you know. Then I thought, 
‘why not make the best of it?” 

“So, now, I stand 
behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with my 
hedge clippers. Every time some guy sticks his thing 
through my fence, I surprise him, grab hold of it and say, 
O.K., buddy! Give me $20, or off it comes.” 

“Well, 
that seems only fair,” said the cop, laughing. 

OK. Good luck!” 

“Oh, by the way, what’s 
in the other bag?” 

“Not everybody 
pays.”
