Chelsea-ManningChelsea Manning up (Video still via ABC)

Chelsea Manning is speaking for the first time since her release from prison following receiving clemency from departing President Barack Obama. (Obama did not grant her a pardon.)

In a new interview with Good Morning America, she says she felt compelled to go to WikiLeaks after witnessing the messy decisions being made by the U.S. in its war against insurgents, and is adamant that she never felt the documents she leaked would harm her country.

Keep watching, and wait till the end, where she says what she would like to communicate to President Obama ...

GLAAD In Need Of A GLAAD Moment Of Its Own Over Lorrie Morgan Brouhaha Comments (0)

Lorrie Morgan is a big-time country singer who will be appearing at an LGBTQ event co-hosted LorrieMorganPublicity by out country artist Ty Herndon and out CMT host Cody Alan — and yet, on her personal Facebook page, she has routinely mocked trans rights.

This is messed up.

The Concert for Love and Acceptance is a nice idea, a benefit for GLAAD held in Nashville and featuring country acts like Herndon, Billy Gilman (GLAAD misspells his name in its press release), Dana Goldberg, Kree Harrison, Michael Ray, Mickey Guyton, Runaway June, Ryan Kinder, Street Corner Symphony, Thompson Square and Trent Harmon. It's a positive thing to hold an event for LGBTQ issues in the South, where empathy for the cause is perceived to be low, and Morgan's inclusion was a good idea before her antipathy for trans people came to light.

I mean, what do you do when one of the stars appearing has shared memes like this:

Morgan is approvingly passing on a nasty, anti-trans message that was initially posted by a group that is opposed to gay marriage.

She also shared this one, which is the tip of the iceberg as far as her anti-Obama tendencies:

WIDGETJackson Free Press: Koch-funded Republican legislator says those removing Confederate monuments should be lynched, fails to see the irony.

WIDGETPolitico: Billy Bush says his infamous dialogue with Trump was not “locker-room talk.” However, he didn't really take it seriously, didn't feel it was literal.

WIDGETHuff Post: Surprise! Trump's beloved goon Michael Flynn expected to plead the Fifth during testimony. Has a hard time telling the pravda.

WIDGETWaPo: Try to imagine Obama standing amidst Arabs, his hand on a glowing orb, for a similar photo op. How would Trump's base react to that?

Fox News Still Mad Obama Bowed To Saudi King — Trump Just Curtsied! Comments (0)

As pointed out by Matt McDermott on Twitter, Fox News ran (and is still running) a piece jubilant Screen Shot 2017-05-20 at 12.50.00 PM over the fact that Trump didn't bow to the Saudi king like Obama did.

An hour later, Trump literally curtsied while receiving a giant gold welcoming necklace (that was denied Obama).

Now, right-wingers are crowing on Twitter how Trump was treated so much better than Obama was.

By the Saudis.

Who were behind 9/11.

Allegedly.

So now, right-wingers love Russia and Saudi Arabia. That whole comparison between right-wing Christians and right-wing Muslims is sounding a lot more rational now. They don't fly airplanes into buildings — no, they just suck up to those who do.

Liberals get hell for saying that not all Muslims are terrorists, yet Trump will curtsy to the king of a country with indisputable ties to 9/11.

Amazing how much people can change when they have no code of ethics and no moral center.

Also, the right-wingers are circulating a fake meme that suggests Melania Trump is the first first lady not to wear a head scarf on a trip to Saudi Arabia — not so. It's traditional not to.

But while we're speaking about it, Melania arrived with no head scarf and yet when Michelle Obama arrived the same way, Trump blasted her for it:

Again: No code of ethics, no moral center, pure lies.

Let's hope this comes true:
