Today's Funny Friday involves Jimmy Kimmel, $14 shoes, and some people who really love Kanye.
Watching it I couldn't help but consider it in the context of this election. Blind faith is one powerful drug.
Have a great weekend!
"Then this heifer has the nerve to ask for my input on what to do next about 10 mins later",Dr. Cross had said,
"Then this kike has the nerve to ask",or
"this wop".Would the story have had the same pickup? Or would the story have even been picked up at all?
Today's Funny Friday, where Samantha Bee covers the Billy Bush Trump tapes and more, isn't safe for work or watching around young kids. And that's an amazing statement given it's a story, albeit by a late night comic host, about an actual presidential candidate.

Have a great weekend.
The World Health Organization recommends that we limit free sugar intakes to a maximum 10% of calories a day. But there are many factors that hinder our ability to abide by these guidelines, far more than support it. First of all, it’s pretty difficult to picture what 10% of calories looks like. Sure I can tell you that for the average adult it’s about 50g or 12 teaspoons, but would that really help you all that much? Most of the free sugar we eat is coming from inside candies and sweets, cereal, beverages, and baked goods, so we can’t easily see how much free sugar is in the food.
