HUFF POST: The Minneapolis City Council has determined — and it is veto-proof — that the city's police department will be dismantled. I do not understand completely defunding police. I do understand drastic reforms, but NO police? This seems like city suicide and also a gift to Trump.

EXTRATV: Horror fave Danny Hicks shocks fans on Facebook with announcement he has one to three years to live.

FACEBOOK: This white B-I-T-C-H may be the ultimate Karen.
