Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy was identified last week by The Daily Beast as a donor to the National Christian Charitable Foundation, which has a history of funding opposition to The Equality Act.
Burger King, which recently launched the Ch’King sandwich, tweeted Thursday it will donate 40 cents for every chicken sandwich sold in June (Pride month) up to $250,000, or 625,000 sandwiches, to The Human Rights Campaign.
“This is a community we love dearly and have proudly supported over the years, so we couldn’t miss an opportunity to take action and help shine a light on the important conversation happening,” a Burger King spokesperson said in an email statement to USA TODAY.
You’ll note in Burger King’s tweet below the company notes that it would continue its donations “even on Sundays.” Chick-fil-A has a long-standing policy of being closed on Sundays.
In a playful back-and-forth, the Whopper’s Twitter account seems to be a bit jealous of the new chicken sandwich LOL…
*6/3-6/30 with every Ch’King sold, BK will contribute 40₵ to the Human Rights Campaign (Max. donation $250k)
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau greeted Biden like an old friend, took a tacit swipe at former president Donald Trump and said he was glad to have a partner on climate change again during the leaders’ first virtual bilateral meeting.
“U.S. leadership has been sorely missed over the past years,” Trudeau said, referring to his strained relationship with Trump.
This was Biden’s first bilateral meeting with a foreign leader, signaling the importance of America’s relationship with its neighbor to the north. “I look forward to seeing you in person in the future,” Biden told Trudeau. “The United States has no closer friend than Canada.”
Trudeau to POTUS in opening bilat comments: “We’ll also be talking about climate change. And thank you again for stepping up in such a big way on tacking climate change. U.S. leadership has been sorely missed over the past, uh, past years.”
The Trump-Trudeau relationship was a bitter one. Trump called him “weak” and “dishonest,” and after Trudeau was seen mocking him to others, “two-faced.” In the words of @Kevinliptakcnn, “that is not likely to occur” when Biden and Trudeau meet today.https://t.co/QVjH0rASRn
The oh-so-conservative Ms. Owens was not impressed by the dress.
“There is no society that can survive without strong men,” Owens tweeted. “The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack.”
“Bring back manly men,” she hissed in closing.
Today, Styles posted a photo of himself wearing a light blue suit complete with fluffy shirt sleeves while eating a banana.
His caption was brilliant in its simplicity: “Bring back manly men.”
The post has received over 6.5 million ‘Likes’ in less than a day.
Owens reportedly commented on Styles’ post but it, to be honest, was too hard for me to scroll through all the love sent his way in the comments. Pretending to be oblivious to his sarcasm, she wrote, “Thank God you agree.”
Unable to resist her ugly nature, though, she threw in another catty remark writing, “He looks great! He just doesn’t look masculine.”
In his Vogue cover interview, Styles shared his view of exploring the possibilities of fashion and referenced pop music royalty as his inspirations.
“The people that I looked up to in music—Prince and David Bowie and Elvis and Freddie Mercury and Elton John—they’re such showmen,” he told Vogue. “As a kid it was completely mind-blowing. Now I’ll put on something that feels really flamboyant, and I don’t feel crazy wearing it. I think if you get something that you feel amazing in, it’s like a superhero outfit. Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with.”
Regarding the nasty tilt Owens clearly assigned to her conservative bent, it’s notable that Styles has been vocal about his support for all of his fans.
At several concerts in the past, he’s carried rainbow flags and declared his love for every fan: “If you are black, if you are white, if you are gay, if you are straight, if you are transgender – whoever you are, whoever you want to be, I support you and I love every single one of you.”
MSNBC’s Brian Williams threw down some masterful deadpan shade last night at the end of his 11th Hour program after former newsman Geraldo Rivera suggested on Fox News that the upcoming coronavirus vaccines should be named after Donald Trump.
Giving props to Trump as the ‘prime architect of Operation WarpSpeed,’ Rivera seems to think Trump the humanitarian scientist created the vaccine all by his little self.
“You know, for my money, Geraldo raises a good point there,” begins Williams. “You know it’s possible we just don’t give the president enough credit for his FDR-like devotion to tackling this virus. His laser-like focus, his daily devotion, the sympathy he’s forever expressing to the families of the quarter-million dead.”
Williams says all of this and more during a montage of Trump out on a golf course.
Hit the play button.
Brian Williams throws deadpan shade: “What Trump Steaks did for the hungry, what Trump Water did for the thirsty in our nation, what Trump University did to lift up the uneducated in our country. Along comes Trump Vaccine. The possibilities are endless.” pic.twitter.com/nWkuAMjLUJ
When Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) attempted to troll Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Twitter, Omar threw some next level shade Loeffler’s way and kept moving.
Loeffler: “Ilhan, We saw the video of you smiling and laughing while talking about al-Qaeda & 9/11. We know that you funneled MILLIONS of dollars to your new husband’s “consulting” firm. And we know that you’re an unabashed anti-Semite. You should be expelled from Congress.”
Omar: “Sorry Kelly, if you need help writing real clap back, I am here to help. This ain’t it, try harder.”
Tony Award-winning diva Patti LuPone, who knows a thing or two about holding court on a balcony thanks to her Tony Award-winning role in Evita, slammed Donald Trump’s appearance on the balcony of the White House last night when he made his ‘dramatic’ return from Walter Reed Medical Center.
Taking note of Trump’s visible gasping for breath in video of his balcony moment, LuPone wrote, “I still have the lung power and I wore less makeup. This revival is closing November 3rd.”
