Candace Owens is proof that if you're a black person who's willing to consistently degrade black people, there's a white person who will put you on TV.

They're really bringing back College Bowl? @CapitalOne @NBC
Watching #USOpen2021. Graphics are incred, and course looks like a monster.

True to form, Trump is using his limited remaining bandwidth and relevance to seek revenge against the people he blames for his downfall, like Lisa Murkowski. That’s fine. Murkowski can take care of herself. And if anything this makes her less beholden to the Republican Party.

Targeting Biden and excluding him from the Eucharist because of his political stances makes the Catholic Church a political organization. Tax them.

These critical race theory bans assume that fragile whites need government to make all of history their safe space.
