Trump Surrogate Scottie Neil Hughes Outrageously Blames Pro-Life Movement For Trump’s Idiotic Failure To Grasp It

This is… one of the more unbelievable segments you will ever see on TV. I’ve said it a million times – not everyone who supports Trump is a garbage human being, but the folks who are leading the Trump Train in public are universally garbage. Just unmitigated trash. And I won’t apologize for saying it. I swear, these people are going to drive me to literally donate to Hillary Clinton if Trump is the nominee.

Enter Scottie Nell Hughes, Trump surrogate and garbage human being, to rubbish the pro-life movement and the decades it has struggled to improve the plight of unborn children in the public’s eye, just because doing so gives her an excuse – however stupid and illogical – to defend her not-very-bright boss.

Via Right Scoop:


Hughes: But I think that right there speaks to what I said about they are throwing everything at him. It’s not like this is the only thing we’ve talked about this week. Every, single… it’s almost like morning and afternoon we’re getting something else. I’m not saying it’s organized (Ed. note – this is a lie) but it’s interesting that this has been the war on women week, that Donald Trump hates women. Two weeks ago it was about campaign violence [crosstalk] But you know, but you know, you have to understand, everybody has attacked him, has thrown stuff at his campaign, and this issue, obviously this is the issue this week…

Bolduan: I’m just talking about this one issue (the abortion comments – LW).

Hughes: Well welcome to the big week that everyone is making something about it. But, but the key is, even though he’s bringing it up, the confusion, and I think why Mr. Trump was not able to give a good answer, a solid answer, is because the pro-life movement has not been able to have a solid answer, either. They’ve not. If they’ve had such clear answers in all of this in legislation, they would have been able to pass it through. But we’ve..

Bolduan: But Scottie, you’re now saying the pro-life movement… (trails off, clearly realizing that a prominent conservative is about to be willfully baited in to defecating on the pro-life movement on live television)

Hughes: The pro-life movement is not very clear also because we have, we’ve seen the best chances in the fall to defund Taxpayer funded abortions (Hold on a second, I just sprained my brain trying to follow this particular diversion from the question that was asked) and yet for some reason they did not have the strategy, they did not have the communication with the sitting GOP Congress that we control to have that pass… until Carly Fiorina made it a presidential issue, we had the momentum to remove that funding, and then the gaffe that she had caused us once again, every Senator including Ted Cruz backed away from it and did not fight for that funding to be defunded. That’s the action right now. There is not organization amongst the pro-life movement to clarify the issue otherwise maybe this might have been a lot more cut and dry than it was.

Wow. What in the world any of that part about the Planned Parenthood funding had a damn thing to do with the fact that Donald Trump did not know how to answer a very basic question, I am at a loss to understand. But that’s okay, because the factual premise was wrong.

The momentum did not exist to pass that legislation while Barack Obama was President because there were not at any point 66 senators willing to vote to override his veto, nor could there have been. The idea that some strategy or communication would have existed to overcome that basic fact is just a fantasy dreamworld. There was exactly one even possible strategy: shutting down the government, and they refused to do it. End of story.

But back to the actual issue which is whether the pro-life movement has been clear on the question Trump was asked: yes we have. It’s been clear for years that every public pro-life leader who is asked the question says that the right public policy is to deal with abortion as a medical licensing issue.

But even if that were not true, it’s not the responsibility of any nebulous “pro-life movement” to tell Donald Trump what to think. It’s Donald Trump’s responsibility. He calls himself “pro-life.” He even angrily declares, while pointing his stubby little fingers at no one in particular, “Everyone knows I am pro-life.” It’s up to him to know what that statement actually means, or at least to have some independent idea about what it should mean.

And if he’s not smart enough to do that, it’s not the pro-life movement’s fault.

Parents Move Monitor to Other Side of Daughter’s Room. Now They Now Why She’s Such a ‘Chatter Box’

Imgur user MaxGeorge used to have the baby monitor facing his daughter as she slept, but because she liked to play with the camera, he moved it to the changing table.

When he turned on the monitor one night, this is what he saw:

What is she talking to?

In the image is a very obvious figure with a human shape and two glowing eyes.

Max tells Independent Journal Review that despite being people who try to use logic and reason when they encounter things they can’t understand, whatever it was he and his wife saw on that monitor put them in a bit of a “conundrum.”

“All of my daughter’s clothes are in the closet, we do not own pets, and the door is made of wood thus it possess no reflective properties,” he says. “We believe in God, and try to see the value in everyone’s beliefs. We accept that there are ‘things’ in this world that we cannot explain and are comfortable living by faith in those matters.”

And although they admit that “demon” was the first thing that came to mind, it wouldn’t surprise them if their little girl was being followed by a divine spirit.

Max explains:

“It makes sense that she is followed by something divine as she herself is, well, divine. Also the thought of an angel in her room over a demon is much more comforting to us as parents.”

After all of this, Max says at least he now knows “what” their daughter has been talking to as she falls asleep…

Teen Saw 2 Cops at Chili’s and Dropped a Napkin on Their Table. She Had No Idea What She Started…

When two Kansas City Police Officers went to a local Chili’s for lunch, they were dumbfounded by what happened next.

Captain Rance Quinn and Captain George Sims were surrounded by community members while eating their meal when a teenage girl leaving the restaurant dropped them a note. On it read a simple message:

“Thanks for keeping us safe.”

Unfortunately, before the men had time to react and give her a thumbs up, she was gone.

Then, a mom approached them with her two small children and a humble request:

“[She] tells us that her 5-year-old son who is deaf always wanted to meet a police officer. We interacted with our young friend. They walked off. As we finished our meals and asked for our checks the waitress told us the table behind us bought our food. That was the table that left us our note. The waitress spoke about how much she supported us and could not thank us enough. What great people.”

But the good deeds didn’t stop there — as the two officers got up to leave, another woman had something to say to them:

“[We were] headed toward the front door and were stopped by the lady who introduced us to her son. She handed my coworker and I a gift card and told us how she really appreciated what we do. She spoke of her family in the military and she supports the military and law enforcement.

She went on to say she always wanted to join but she is also deaf and could not. As I looked at her I could see true emotion in her eyes and she appeared to be tearing up. We tried to refuse the cards but she was having none of it. She said she wanted to buy our dinner but the other table did and bought us the cards instead. She left as we walked out.”

In hopes of finding these Good Samaritans and thanking them in person, the officers posted their story on the Kansas City Police Department Facebook page — and the community’s response was, once again, incredible.

Thanks kept pouring in from Facebook users:

Officer Quinn tells Fox 4 News in the video above that he’s carried that napkin ever since and has one simple message of his own to the teen who wrote it:

“The message you gave to us that day was powerful. Don’t ever change who you are. Keep that with you through the rest of your life.”

While more than 260 people shared the post on Facebook, the police department has yet to find that young girl.

They Heard Something ‘Crinkle’ Under the Hotel Room Sheets. What They Found Had Them Truly Disturbed…

Talk to any seasoned traveler, and they’re sure to have some hotel horror stories for you.

While weird, loud sounds next door or a broken A/C system in the middle of a heat wave are rough in their own right, one of the most common worries stems from the place hotel guests often spend most of their time: the bed.

As one Reddit poster recently learned, you really never know what you’re getting when you slip under those clean-looking white linens:

View post on

The note, which the poster says they discovered under the sheets right before drifting off to sleep, reads:

“If you’re reading this, then house-keeping did not change your sheets!”

While you certainly shouldn’t expect that you’re sharing bed sheets with the previous guest at every hotel room, hotel executives have admitted that house-cleaning staff are only human and are “going to miss something here or there.”

Admittedly on the far end of the germ-awareness spectrum, microbiologist Phillip Tierno says he won’t stay at any hotel without his impervious, waterproof bed and pillow covers, listing skin cells, human hair, bodily secretions, fungi, bacteria, dust mites, lint, insect parts, pollen, and cosmetics as just a few potential sleeping companions.

Still, some hotels have learned that cleanliness is key to keeping customers coming back.

Hampton Inn has taken a different spin on the idea of the warning note, and took to putting notes around their rooms to reassure guests that their rooms were freshly cleaned.

For those travelers still concerned about what they’re getting into with their hotel room, experts have provided a few suggestions to consider as soon as guests check in:

  • “Turn down the top comforter or duvet cover (depending on which you encounter) and pull it to the end of the bed, avoid coming into contact with it as much as you can.”
  • “Wipe down the sink faucets, bathroom countertop, toilet handle and shower faucets with a damp towel.”
  • “Wipe down all door handles and knobs including the entryway and bathroom, phone, TV remote, and refrigerator if applicable.”

While it’s certainly an unpleasant concept to think about, it seems that there might be a silver lining to the unchanged linens note, as several people responding to the original post have said it’s something they’re going to start doing, as well.

Some have even suggested adding a date to the note before slipping it under the covers, so the next guest would know exactly long those dirty sheets have been lying there.

She Won 21 Emmys for Her Reporting. But One Facebook Post About ‘Black Men’ Ended Her Career…

On March 9th, a backyard cookout in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania, turned into a horrific crime scene after two men, one carrying an AK-47, carried out what is described as a “premeditated” and “calculated” shooting.

Since then, the community has struggled to make sense of the incident, which left 6 people dead, including a pregnant woman and her unborn child.

As WPTV reports, however, one popular and award-winning journalist’s personal reaction to the shooting has not only caused her employer to announce that it has “ended its relationship” with the anchor, but has sparked a sharp divide about racial perceptions, as well.

Writing in a now-deleted Facebook post that she’s “tired of hurting,” anchor Wendy Bell — who has won 21 Emmys in her career — addressed those responsible for the shooting:

“You needn’t be a criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers who broke so many hearts two weeks ago Wednesday…

They are young black men, likely teens or in their early 20s. They have multiple siblings from multiple fathers and their mothers work multiple jobs. These boys have been in the system before.

They’ve grown up there. They know the police. They’ve been arrested…Once you kill a neighbor’s three children, two nieces, and her unborn grandson, there’s no coming back.

There’s nothing nice to say about that.”

Bell went on to describe a recent experience with a “young, African-American teen” at a restaurant, praising his attitude and work ethic and writing that he’s someone who’s “going to make it.”

The reaction to Bell’s message was swift and intense, with many taking offense at her words, and prompting a message from Charles W. Wolfertz III, the President & General Manager of WTAE, her employer of 18 years:

Though WTAE cut professional ties, it hasn’t stemmed the backlash against Bell:

While others stand firmly behind the reporter:

Bell — who has since apologized for her post — told the Associated Press that she believes she didn’t get a “fair shake” over the fallout, adding:

“It makes me sick. What matters is what’s going on in America, and it is the death of black people in this country…

I live next to three war-torn communities in the city of Pittsburgh, that I love dearly. My stories, they struck a nerve. They touched people, but it’s not enough. More needs to be done. The problem needs to be addressed.”

Bell’s former employer, WTAE, has since agreed to meet twice a year with the Pittsburgh Black Media Federation to review the station’s coverage of topics of diversity and American-American communities.
