  1. You haven’t seen anything yet regarding Trump. Wait until he drops out out of first in the polls. The temper tantrum will be worthy of a two year old.

  2. Shame the Pope got suckered into the climate change crap, but if he works on his English and has a dish put on the Vatican, a little FOX NEWS will put him on a better path.

    • The Pope is a marketing genius. He has been gotten so much out of giving so little.

      A year from now the mainstream media will label the pedophile priest issue a tempest in a teapot.

  3. I didn’t know it until today when he told the story, but did you guys know that Brian Williams saved the Pope’s life thirty years ago when he and Bill O’Reilly beat back an angry mob in Argentina?

  4. Catholics as far as the eye can see.

    Sitting here in my recliner sampling the cable news coverage of the Pope reminded me of just how many Catholics there are in certain key positions in prime-time cable television + late night on broadcast TV.

    Not only are all three late night hosts (Kimmel, Colbert and Fallon) former altar boys who are Catholic, but so are some MSNBC and FNC anchors/hosts (I think).

    7 pm
    FNC – Greta (a former Catholic)
    MSNBC – Chris Matthews

    8 pm
    FNC – Bill O’Reilly
    MSNBC – Chris Hayes

    9 pm
    FNC – Megyn Kelly
    MSNBC – Rachel Maddow

    10 pm
    FNC – Sean Hannity
    MSNBC – Lawrence O’Donnell

    Corrections welcomed as always. I’ve been known to have some senior moments.

        • Catholics also do not roam the barios looking for converts like johos, mormans, 7th dayers and evangelicals. the “miracle” channels in countries that are not 1st world outnumber sports channels. they still sell bits of cloth and vials of water, roll in the dirt ranting in tongues, do the fake cures etc. for all the water projects, orphanages and homes built for poor people one would think they could lighten up on the scam aspects.

  5. Trump – “Fox News has been treating me very unfairly…” Translation – “They aren’t kissing my a**. Don’t they know who I am? I’m Donald Freaking Trump. I was declaring bankruptcy when Megyn Kelly was still in diapers.”

    • Wasn’t Eboni based in Los Angeles?

      If so, perhaps she needs a little time to relocate to New York and get settled. Just a wild guess on my part.

    • after the debate … however during the debate they played like the national enquirer desperately wanting to show dead bodies. the desire to lead with the bleed devalued the entire affair. last i checked, and i was just there, the USA is in deep doo doo.

  6. Today’s most popular links:

    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Wemple: Trump’s anti-Fox tired a sure sign he’s felling the heat.

  7. It is uh-noy-ing when Bill gets staccato, which I’ve previously addressed with his “[name]…is…next” bit. And when he said “up-a-head,” his voice went high-medium-low. That’s equally annoying.
