San Fran’s mayor is speaking up for the Speaker of the House.

You surely heard of Nancy Pelosi’s recent face-filled fling with the supposedly shuttered ESalon in San Francisco. The incident followed her insistence upon Americans remaining — like hashbrowns at the Waffle House — covered and smothered.

In 80-year-old hair parlance, call it a dye-chotomy:

To be clear, San Francisco requires masks be worn in businesses.

Here’s more, from RedState’s Nick Arama:

All salons are currently closed and blow outs are forbidden, yet Pelosi was caught on camera without a mask on having her hair done. The salon owner spoke out against it after one of the people who used space in her salon worked on Pelosi.

Tucker Carlson had a thing or two to say:

Nancy alleged the situation was a “setup,” and perhaps that’s how SF Mayor London Breed sees it, too.

We may never know — when asked about Pelosi living outside rules she favors for you and your family, the mayor would only take part in that hottest of all Democratic fads: bashing Donald Trump.

According to London’s thoughts on Nancy Unmasked, POTUS is on par with bin Laden and Hussein.

Strange, but this is politics — don’t speak according to what exists; by any means possible, cloud the air.

Courtesy of The Daily Wire, here’s London fog:

“We have a terrorist, we have a dictator who is running this country, and Nancy Pelosi is at the forefront fighting against this person every day.”

“The forefront”:

Mayor London did graze Nancy’s trip to maintain her mane:

“[I]’m not trying to excuse what happened. I’m just saying that to allow an issue like this to turn our city upside down when we got folks who are homeless, we’ve got people who can’t open their business, including these salons.”

One reporter posed, “So, why not apologize, not you, but the speaker?”

London’s not her sister’s keeper:

“Let me just be clear, I can be responsible for my behavior, I can’t tell other people what to do.”

Guess she feels differently about Brother Trump.

Either way, the mayor thinks all you critics should get over it:

“I get that they have these feelings, they are voicing their feelings, but we are doing the very best we can and I know that’s not good enough for them, I understand. I get it, but at the end of the day, it is really time for us to move on.”

So there ya go.

If London wants to get down to the real problems — at least in San Francisco — why are the real problems still real problems?

Points to ponder, as we struggle under Führer Trump.

The answers may not come easily, and questions over Nancy’s salon day still abound.

Regardless, Pelosi need not make an appointment next time she needs her hair washed.

She can just do like the residents of her city — use a fire hydrant:

We’ve got some strange things going on with regard to race.

For months now, thousands of violent rioters — the vast, vast majority of them evidently Caucasian — have taken to the streets bearing the banner of “Black Lives Matter.”

While screaming at black people in uniforms.

And raging about things having nothing to do with race, like the right to own their own business (capitalism) and the ability to keep from getting dead (anti-anarchical law enforcement).

Meanwhile, the official organization Black Lives Matter™ — led by “trained Marxists” — lists among its objectives a rebellion against family.

And the Smithsonian is telling us things such as hard work, planning for the future, science, rigid time schedules, aesthetics, justice, competition, and individualism are inherently white.

Here’s another: To hear the media tell it, only the pale prefer the President.

Joe Biden agrees — if you don’t vote for him, “you ain’t black.”

But surprise: Many actual black individuals own their own businesses, show up on time, work hard to compete, and do it in style — like artists.

And they don’t all think alike.

That was made clear in Los Angeles this weekend, as black supporters marched with flags touting “Trump 2020.”

One of the event’s leaders gave the mainstream media narrative a bit of What For:

“Amidst the scorn, and despite being called c**ns and Uncle Tom’s, a few of us black Trump supporters took to the front to head a collective march thru the streets of Los Angeles, as we all showed support for America, Trump, and our police.”

He topped it off with a clever hashtag: #BLACKLIVESMAGA.

Bonus: #liberalsworstnightmare

As you can see beneath the scene’s red muscle shirt, that screen name — “MAGA Hulk” — is no joke.

The march got some online love:

Black conservatism’s been a trending topic for a quite while — see #Blexit.

And there’s this, courtesy of The Daily Wire:

In early July, noted black conservative radio host Larry Elder released his documentary Uncle Tom, of which he stated, “The Uncle Tom movie…asks a very simple question: Why can’t we have an intelligent, healthy discussion within the Black community without a whole cadre of well-educated, bright, thoughtful Black people being maligned and discarded as sellouts? What’s prompting this?”

Elder added, “The so-called war on poverty was launched in the 1960s … And what the welfare state has done, in my opinion, is incentivize Black women to marry the government, and allow men to abandon their financial and moral responsibilities to their families. We’ve gone from 25 percent of Black kids born outside wedlock in 1965 to nearly 70 percent now. You cannot attribute that to Jim Crow and racism. It has to do with bad government policy.”

There’s a lot of “bad government” going around. And according to UCLA data collected before the death of George Floyd, young black Americans may be more likely than their folks to believe it’s compliments of Democrats.

From JustTheNews.com:

The data collected from April 2-May 13 by the Democracy Fund + UCLA Nationscape project, an initiative that conducted weekly surveys of thousands of potential voters for nearly a year, found that 29% of percent of black voters ages 30-44 and 21% ages 18-29 have a “very favorable” or “somewhat favorable” view of President Trump. This compares to just 14% of black voters 45-64 and 9% of those 65 and older.

So considering all the above, where are we headed? What does November hold, and will all those white BLM rioters vote? How could they — they’d be taking part in an evil system.

One thing’s for sure: Someone’s skin color doesn’t tell you anything about their politics. Or, really — despite what some may believe — anything else.

Are any of you white readers roarin’ and ready to go on reparations? And what if you’re El Salvadorian? Would you still need to pay?

It’s a bit unclear how things would work, but the usual underlying idea’s that black people have been kept poor by the extended heritage of slavery.

Given that, here’s a question — what about black millionaires who’ve been kept down?

Ice Cube has an answer: Those in Hollywood are owed a pie slice, too.

The rapper-turned-movie man’s calling on Tinseltown to pay up.

During a Wednesday interview with Charlamagne tha God, Cube told The Breakfast Club’s audience that oppressive studios have contributed to the pain of black entertainers, and the piper’s readied his credit-card machine:

“Virtually all the studios who contributed in our narrative, in our pain, in our misrepresentation, in stealing our history and giving it to…white people for over 100 years. So I think these studios that we…love should kick in to a studio that’s [run] by black people with no outside influences, and whose movies and projects are owned by those black people…”

The BIG3 basketball league founder — whose real name is O’Shea Jackson — thinks it’s time for studios to cough up ownership of their stuff as well. How ’bout they’ll only be able to purchase licenses?

“Those black artists, those black directors and writers, and people who put the projects together should own the projects. And these studios, they can license the projects, the movies, or the TV shows or whatever, or they don’t have to.”

And it sounds as if he’s game for a black-only-owned app:

“We can put [the films and shows] on our own streaming services. I just think it’s a form of reparations from the entertainment industry if they all had to invest a certain amount of money into the studio each year as payment for all the damage they’ve done to black people.”

More broadly, the Ride Along star wants to see mathematical precision:

“[We’re] catching hell no matter [who’s] in office, and we always have. So we need to think about who’s gonna support this plan, and try to better the whole country…try to do it in [an] across-the-board, broad manner. Because…stomping out little fires here and there, it just ain’t gonna cut it. We are 13% of this country — more, 13.5 — and we deserve 13.5%…straight up. Across the board. …We’re not trying to get to reform. We need equality, straight up. … Why reform a system that was geared towards our demise? We need to be equal.”

It seems to me that promotes a principle which would deflate all of Hollywood like the biggest pin prick puncturing the littlest balloon: If 13.5% of the population deserves 13.5% of the wealth, then — in a country of roughly 330,000,000 — 1/330,000,000th of America deserves the same fraction of its cash.

Start perfectly dividing equity from coast to coast, and the silver screen’s megastars’ll be moving into lofts lickety-split.

Speaking of millionaires, Charlemagne asked Cube — who’s reportedly worth $160 million — whether he considers himself free in the USA.

As it turns out, it’s impossible:

“No. [There’s] no way to feel free in America. because I’m connected to our people, you know, so I actually feel the pain.”

He’s connected:

“You feel it in your bones. That’s how I feel when I see something [happens] to one of us in the street. I feel it in my bones, and so I don’t feel free. I feel like that person. I feel like that can happen to me. That can happen to one of my sons. That can happen to my daughter. That can happen to my nephews, nieces, my father. That can happen to my mother.”

To Ice Cube, freedom’s about more than cold, hard cash:

“How the hell are you going to feel free in this country just ‘cause you got money? That ain’t sh–.”

Whether Benjamins buy freedom, the notion of Hollywood forking over reparations probably suits a lot of middle Americans just fine — after all, it’d likely come from the pockets of those who’ve championed similarly left-wing ideas in the public square — it’s a veritable WokeFest out there. Why not put their money where their mouths are?

Beverly Hills is full of liberals. Now’s their chance to lead by example.

Time to give it up, one-percenters.

Back to the studios, as for a cold Caucasian creative clamp-down on movies’ melanated makers, Mr. Jackson offered, “Every artist I know — every great actor or director or writer — has ten projects they can’t get made because some white people can’t understand what they’re trying to make. … There needs to be a place where Hollywood pays for what they’ve done to our people.”

Right-O. Let’s go, La La Land. Stick it to ’em, Cube.

Should there be a temporary ban on immigration while the U.S. battles COVID-19? If you’re like the majority of Americans, your answer is Yes.

So says a Washington Post/University of Maryland poll released Tuesday.

The survey was taken after the President announced he’d issue a for-the-moment moratorium (but prior to details being provided — see my coverage of those here).

A random sampling of 1,008 adults from across the country (with a sampling error of 3.5 percentage points) found that 65% support a temporary 86’ing of nearly all immigration into the country. Thirty-five percent opposed.

The Trump administration released a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation championing the poll’s results:

“The American people clearly stand with President Trump as he takes action to protect American workers and ensures they are the number one priority as we begin to revitalize our economy.”

As reported by the Caller, Professor Michael Hanmer of UM — who was involved with the study — was caught off guard by the numbers:

“One of the most surprising results is that majorities of 18- to 29-year-olds, who tend to be more open to immigration and have a more global perspective, support the proposal to block immigration. One way for people to deal with the reality that so many scientific and policy questions have yet to be answered is to look to concrete solutions.”

Perhaps their change of attitude was due to a feeling that the policy could affect them personally.

Unsurprisingly, more Republicans agreed with Trump than did Dems. GOP folks gave an Amen to the tune of 83%, while the Party of the Donkey was split 49%-49%.

Independents were definitely in favor at 67%.

This isn’t the first time the citizenry’s shown statistical support for a coronavirus immigration block. An Ipsos/USA Today study reported that, on April 9th and 10th, 79% of Americans were in favor of a short-term stoppage of “immigration from all other countries.”

There’s certainly a sense to it: We’ve been invaded by a foreign entity, and a lot of Americans are on board with limiting our biological imports while we figure this thing out.

It’s easy to believe that 65%+ would prefer to press Pause.

But here’s a thought: Forty-nine percent of Democrats opposing an immigration ban doesn’t seem in sync with what I believe to be a much higher percentage claiming that we should stay on lockdown. How can they want to force American citizens to stay home, while not doing the same for others?

I look forward to your response.

n Sunday, Trump made an announcement about CNN

Let it be known: The network is “pathetic.”

One thing you can say about the guy is he’s not especially vague.

During Sunday’s Coronavirus Task Force press briefing, a CNN reporter queried:

“On President Xi, you now talk about the missteps that China made early on in this crisis and how it put the United States behind the curve. So, when you repeatedly praised Xi in January and February, you said he will solve the problem, you said he was doing a great job. Were you duped by President Xi?”

Press Pause.

It seems to me that so many of the media’s questions for Trump, particularly during this pandemic, are aimed at creating “Gotcha” moments.

“Many” = Any more than the appropriate number, which would be none.

As for the circumstance with China, The Daily Wire offers two interesting points:

[T]he Trump administration banned travel from China and created a Coronavirus Task Force in January to deal with the outbreak, which came as the U.S. had cases in the single digits and had no reported deaths until late-February.

And:

[T]he Trump administration, which tried to get the CDC into China in early January, might have had a significantly harder time getting information out of China about the outbreak and critical supplies that were needed to fight the outbreak had the administration openly started criticizing the communist party.

Additionally, with regard to whether China was doing a great or terrible job at any given moment — so far as we knew — those, of course, are the operative words. Hindsight’s 2020 — just ask this guy:

But suggesting the President was “duped,” in my opinion, sounds as if the Collusion News Network’s asking, “Would you say you’re a dope?”

The reporter perpetually interrupted, and the Commander-in-Chief eventually dropped the hammer:

“You people are so pathetic at CNN.”

Clear.

The Prez also correctly noted that, after he’d banned travel, Nancy Pelosi was telling people to gather in Chinatown.

Oh, and just to drive it home, once again, CNN’s a turd:

“Listen, long before Pelosi, she was having parties in San Francisco, ‘Let’s go to Chinatown,’ and that was a long time after I closed up the country. That’s why your ratings are so bad because you’re pathetic. Your ratings are terrible, you got to get back to real news.”

Here’s a reminder of just how pitiful politics can be:

Back to the news briefing brawl, we’ve come to a place where it seems the Trump administration’s primary adversary is the press. Listen to news reels from the days of World War II — journalists were banded together with America, White House and all. These days, some in the media appear more ready to side with China than us, if it means going against that orange guy.

Such a penetration of partisanship and lack of national unity is…what’s the right word? Oh, yeah — a bit pathetic.

C’mon, folks!

Find the transcript below:

CNN: Mr. President, on President Xi, you now talk about the missteps that China made early on in this crisis and how it put the United States behind the curve.

TRUMP: Well, based on an investigation, we’re going to find out. Yeah, sure.

CNN: So, when you repeatedly praised Xi in January and February, you said he will solve the problem, you said he was doing a great job. Were you duped by President Xi?

TRUMP: No, no, no, no. I made a deal that’s phenomenal for the United States. You know who was duped? You. You and the Obama Administration were duped for years because China was ripping off this country like in the history of any country, nobody’s been ripped off like the United States by China and many other countries, and we stop it. And we’ve done a deal where they are paying us 250 — they are buying…they didn’t do anything for us. You know, we didn’t even have a deal. It was so bad … It is about a deal. Because the deal started a long time ago before anybody heard about this — the deal was finished a number of months ago…I was very happy. I hope they were happy. Billions of dollars came in in tariffs. Billions of dollars. They’re going to be purchasing billions. And then all of a sudden, long after that, I find out about this. And I told you —

CNN: [Interrupting]

TRUMP: Listen, CNN. Listen, CNN. I told you, I’m not happy about it. And this was after the deal. So we have this wonderful deal, and I was very — nobody‘s been tougher before the deal ever on China than Trump. Then I made a deal, was very happy with the deal. It’s a great deal, great for our farmers. The farmers have been paid a fortune already. Then what happened…now I find out after the deal, after the deal…I find out that I’m not happy.

CNN: [Interrupting]

TRUMP: You people are so pathetic at CNN. … I was very happy with the deal. Very happy with everything. Then we find out about the plague, right? The plague. And since we found out about that, I’m not happy. But I closed it up long before Pelosi —

CNN: [Interrupting]

TRUMP: Listen, long before Pelosi, listen, she was having parties in San Francisco. ‘Let’s all go to Chinatown’, and that was a long time after I closed up the country … That’s why your ratings are so bad because you’re pathetic. Your ratings are terrible, you gotta get back to real news.

On Saturday, the White House responded to Hillary Clinton’s jab at Melania Trump.

Promoting her Hulu Documentary on Thursday’s episode of Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, the former First Lady slammed the current one.

If you weren’t aware, Melania promotes Be Best, an organization aimed to stop bullying.

Here she is, in May of 2018:

On WWHL, Hillary suggested that, if Melania’s serious about combating cyberbullying, she “should look closer to home.”

In response, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham had this to tell The Daily Caller:

“She of all people should refrain from doling out relationship advice. Her bitterness and envy were on full display.”

Hillary seems to still hold a rootin’ tootin’ interest in Trump, as she continues — nearly four years after the election — to talk about him.

Here’s more from Clinton during the Bravo program:

“I think he’s hiding a bunch of things. I think he’s hiding that he’s not as wealthy as he claims to be. He has not only not been charitable, but he now is prohibited from having a charitable foundation because he used it for personal and political reasons. I think that he has probably has a lot of funding from suspect sources that would be shown in his tax returns. I think it would just be a cornucopia of information about his claims to the contrary.”

Wait a minute — did Hillary Clinton just accuse someone of using a charitable foundation for personal and political reasons?

Yes.

Yes she did.

Melania didn’t respond to Hill’s jab.

Instead, on Friday, Mrs. Trump said she’d like to expand Be Best to other issues, such as opioid addiction and safety online.

She explained to a group of lawyers at the National Opioid Summit:

“My initiative is meant to promote the positive actions happening in our communities so they can be replicated throughout the country and across the world. As First Lady of (the) United States, finding solutions to our nation’s drug problem is something I care deeply about. Especially when it comes to its negative effects on children and families. I have traveled to hospitals and rehabilitation centers around the country and have seen the devastating results of drug abuse and addiction, and I was saddened to learn that opioids have affected the lives of nearly 2.2 million children in the United States. While visiting treatment facilities across the country, I have had the opportunity to hold innocent newborns who were suffering from neonatal abstinence syndrome. On average, babies born with this condition will be in the hospital four times longer than a healthy newborn.”

So far as I can tell, that seems a much better use of time than battling it out with your opponent’s wife.

But that’s just me.

Well, it’s that time again — time for another lawsuit against The Washington Post.

We’ve seen Nick Sandmann’s $250 million suit against the paper (here); this go-round, the legal launch comes from none other than POTUS himself.

You may have heard about a little thing called The Media’s Giant Claim of Russia Collusion.

If not, here’s an illustration:

Nonetheless, this is how Carl Bernstein saw it last March:

“Let’s look at where the disinformation, and mistakes, and lying have come from. It hasn’t come from the press; it’s come from the President of the United States and those around him.”

Back to the Post, Trump’s suit strikes at two articles from June 2019. Those pieces — the filing claims — included defamatory statements connecting the New York billionaire’s presidential campaign to Russian interference.

Trump Campaign Senior Legal Advisor Jenna Ellis explains via a statement:

“Today the President’s re-election campaign has filed suit against The Washington Post for false statements contained in two published articles, including defamatory claims that the campaign ‘tried to conspire with’ a ‘sweeping and systematic’ attack by Russia against the 2016 U.S. presidential election and ‘who knows what sort of aid Russia and North Korea will give to the Trump campaign, now that he has invited them to offer their assistance?’”

“The statements were and are 100 percent false and defamatory,” Jenna points out.

And it’s asserted WaPo knew that at the time:

“The complaint alleges the Post was aware of the falsity at the time it published them, but did so for the intentional purpose of hurting the campaign, while misleading its own readers in the process. The campaign files suit to publicly establish the truth and seek appropriate legal remedies for the harm caused by false reporting.”

One piece at issue was titled “Trump Just Invited Another Russian Attack. Mitch McConnell is Making One more Likely.” The other’s headline read “Trump: I Can Win Reelection with Just My Base.”

The suit comes on the heels of a Trump libel claim against The New York Times over Russia.

It’s strange to me that the networks weren’t able to cover the news of the day without oozed anticipation for the fall of the Republican president. In my opinion, they came across as absurd, no doubt turning off viewers in the process.

Personally, I miss the days of Ted Koppel. He may have been boring, but — to a great degree — straight news should be. It oughta lack color: Just the facts.

Since the election, there’s been a lot of “just the goofiness.”

Ted thinks so, too; check this out:

The Washington Post doesn’t seem to agree. So Trump’s suin’ ’em for a nice chunk o’ change:

“The Defamatory Article has forced, and will force the Campaign, to expend funds on corrective advertisements and to otherwise publicize the facts that it did not conspire with Russia in 2016 and is not seeking Russia’s or North Korea’s help in the 2020 election. The Campaign was damaged in the millions of dollars, the specific amount to be proven at trial.”
