  1. He's been telling flat-out lies about the POTUS for how many weeks and he can't take a few jokes. Someone who's hoping to be president (assuming he's serious about it) better have thicker skin than that. Oh, yeah, and a handle on reality.

  5. Just loved how Obama ripped Trump to pieces. Trump was squirming in his chair as everyone around laughed at him!

  6. "Employees are suggested, for example, to ask same-sex duos checking in together if they prefer one king bed or two double ones..."

    I don't understand that part. So what happens if the duo is different-sex? Does the employee assign them a room of their choosing WITHOUT asking what kind they prefer?
    All I would want is to be treated no different with NO REGARD to the gender of the person checking in with me.
    I've checked into hotels with a female friend who's partnered with another man who wasn't with us, with a male friend, with a brother, with my partner, etc. Sometimes my brother and I wanted to share a bed because the room's layout was better. Last week, my partner and I wanted two beds because two other friends were joining us on our third night in the hotel.
    It's none of the hotel's business who we are to each other.
    Give us the room we booked. And if we didn't state a preference, ask us what kind of room we prefer. It makes me wonder what kind of policy they had before.

  8. @ Gregv

    They only ask if the type of room setup they wanted wasn't specified when they booked the room.

    They ask everyone that.

    They're not giving special treatment, I know, I work at a hotel. They probably changed from just assuming that two men would want separate beds.

    All in all they're just trying to further tailor the experience to suit their clientele, no matter if they're gay or straight.

  10. "John Paul II beatified at the Vatican"

    Meanwhile, Jesus taught:

    "Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever receives one such child in My name receives Me; but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of its stumbling blocks! For it is inevitable that stumbling blocks come; but woe to that man through whom the stumbling block comes!"
    - Matthew 18:3-7 (New American Standard Bible)

    Not that the Vatican (or John Paul II, when it came to keeping children away from child raping priests) has ever really cared very much about the teachings of Jesus Christ when it was awkward to do so. Making a saint out of a popular enabler of child rapists is SO very much more convenient!

  11. I saw some of the footage of the dinner on YouTube. I was hysterical with laughter, Donald was the center of attention, yet it seemed that he wanted to be left alone......poor baby. The stupid bastard had it coming.
