TIME Magazine contradicted the assertions of President Donald Trump that he was offered to be Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” but declined the offer. Trump tweeted that “Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year. But I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot,” his tweet continued. “I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!” The magazine now claims that the account is false.
Teen Vogue columnist Emily Lindin is under fire this week after writing how she is “not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs” over false allegations of sexual assault or harassment. Lindin dismissed the dangers of false claims as low in joining other feminist writers in arguing that women must be believed in such cases. Indeed, Lindin wrote that even raising false claims could be a sign of hostility to women. I wrote recently how this standard was not used during the Clinton presidency where leading feminists not only supported Bill Clinton but continue to flock to events featuring the accused sexual harasser.
London detectives are searching for a man who placed a small camera in a toilet at Starbucks in Vauxhall. They have one big advantage: the first picture taken by the creep was of himself installing the camera.
Shakes the Clown allegedly added an unwanted scary element to a haunted house this Halloween: groping women. Two women complained to police and, according to a criminal complaint, Brandon Goral, 43, grabbed their breasts as they were waiting to enter a “haunted barn” at a campground in Janesville, Wisconsin.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. We begin this day with the Turley Turkey bowl with our neighbors and family. This is a tradition that has been held for over 50 years. It is an early game with copious amounts of hot chocolate, donuts, and treats. (It was 32 degrees this morning but blue skies). We then follow with my favorite meal of the year with roughly a large assemblage of friends and family. It is hard to imagine a better day (beyond the other Bears prevailing in a towering victory for Monsters of the Midway).
Many fans are debating today whether to watch football in a long-standing American tradition (including in my house) on Thanksgiving or join the growing boycott of the National Football League over the continued national anthem protests. Viewership and stadium attendance continues to drop around the country. Recently we discussed how the NAACP proposed simply dropping the national anthem as a way to resolve the controversy — a position that some of us strongly objected to. Now the NFL is proposing an equally bizarre solution: if you cannot get rid of the anthem, get rid of the players. The NFL is working on a proposal to keep players in the locker room for the national anthem. No players, no protest. It is an idea that President Donald Trump rejected for good reason.
