Mel Brooks did a sight gag involving crumpling under the weight of his newly received National Medals of Arts and Humanities medal. (Many in the media thought he was pretending to pants the prez, but Brooks later joked it was heavy.)

This woman is so blindingly racist it's breathtaking. It's terrifying that adults capable of dressing themselves and making a living would say this stuff, but she literally believes President Obama created racism (It's almost like she says racism but means racial unrest?! And even that!) and that any black person in the past 50 years who hasn't had a successful life can't say it had anything to do with race.
REALLY? Does anyone believe that with white ladies like her running around in positions of power a black person would have an equal opportunity to work with/for her, let alone to be sold a house by her? (She's in realty, but not reality.)
She has resigned and apologized. How anyone could accept that apology considering how explicitly she explained herself is beyond me:
Talking Points Memo gets it right.
Above is what appears to be an image of Ahmad Rahami in custody following a shoot-out with police in, Linden New Jersey. (It bears mentioning that cops are great at capturing a probable terrorist but all too often shoot black teenagers. Another topic.)
Great news that he has been nabbed, terrible news that he apparently shot a cop.

Now we'll get to hear the lunatic ramblings of a slacker terrorist (he did NOTHING to try to get away with it) about why America is bad.
Hillary Clinton spoke this morning on the importance of approaching the threat of terorrism:

President Obama has spoken out in a cool, calm, collected way that is in sharp contrast to the frothy-mouthed ravings of Donald Trump:
President Obama gave a fiery speech tonight at a Congressional Black Caucus event in which he offered yet another full-throated endorsement of his onetime rival, onetime employee Hillary Clinton:
If I hear anybody saying their vote does not matter, that it doesn't matter who we elect—read up on your history. It matters. We've got to get people to vote. I will consider it a personal insult—an insult to my legacy—if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election. You want to give me a good send-off? Go vote.
That has to be his bluntest plea to date. He knows this election matters, and he knows that Hillary is not the lesser of two evils—but will Democratic voters get the message?
He also had sharp words for Donald Trump's assertion that there's never been a worse time to be black in America. Which, you know, duh:
He missed that whole civics lesson about slavery and Jim Crow.
At the same event, Hillary called out Trump's attempt to lay birtherism at her feet:
It’s not about golf course promotions or birth certificates. It comes down to who will fight for the forgotten. Who will invest in your children and who will really have your back in the White House. We need ideas, not insults, real plans to help struggling Americans, to help communities that have been left out and left behind. Not prejudice and paranoia. We can’t let Barack Obama’s legacy fall into the hands of someone who doesn’t understand that. Whose dangerous and divisive vision for our country will drag us backwards.

Donald Trump owes him and the American people an apology.
After using a gathering of military veterans and media-friendly teasing to promote his latest hotel venture, Donald Trump on Friday finally admitted what every sane person has always known:
President Obama was born in the United States, period.
He made no apology, and in fact lays the blame at Hillary Clinton's feet—and there is ZERO evidence Hillary Clinton started that line of inquiry.
“Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. I finished it,” Trump said.
It makes me sad, but I think many people will accept his lie about Hillary. I hope she pushes back hard.
