Question: “If you were in a similar situation as president, would you take up arms like Zelensky?”— Ron Filipkowski (@RonFilipkowski) February 27, 2022

ABOVE: At CPAC, Trump was lobbed a softball question about whether he'd take up arms to defend the U.S. Even though a U.S. president would NEVER be in that situation, and he could have just said he would of course do it, Trump is such a fucking coward he couldn't even offer hypothetical bravery.

METRO WEEKLY: Barry Williams — Greg from The Brady Bunch — is speaking out about the show's impact, and also about co-star Robert Reed's sexual orientation:
That was very difficult and unfair. You’re talking about a time period where there was a different … social consciousness and acceptability. Robert did not talk about it. He just didn’t. He was very private. He wasn’t out out, but I can say that when you work together for that many years that closely — and we spent more time together as a Brady family than we spent with our own families — you get to know a lot about everybody. There really aren’t any secrets, even if they’re not being shared.
He advocated for more, not less, sexual freedom — even in the face of AIDS. (Image via University of Chicago Press)

BUSINESS INSIDER: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) was the surprise speaker at a white nationalist event. Then, she said she didn't really know they were white nationalists, but is always looking to inspire (Hitler?) youth.
