NOT CHARMING. Mike Pence’s behavior toward his wife.
JASON CHAFFETZ. Flynn shouldn’t be given immunity and Trump shouldn’t be talking about it. “Look, it’s very mysterious to me, though, why all of a sudden Gen. Flynn is suddenly out there saying he wants immunity. I don’t think Congress should give him immunity. If there’s an open investigation by the FBI, that should not happen. I also don’t believe that, actually, that the president should be weighing in on this. They’re the ones that actually would prosecute something.”

ADVERTISING. Boy Butter ad banned in Chicago: “According to ComCast TV in the so-called liberal windy city of Chicago did not think viewers could handle the level of gayness in this ad starring sexy ginger, Seth Fornea, who is showing us all how to properly use a butter churn.

Its sudden closure comes after a number of other venues that form London’s LGBT scene have been forced to shut up shop in recent years.”
