MARK GREEN. Trump Army Secretary nominee accuses liberal left of painting him as a hater: “The New York Times reported LGBT groups’ criticism of Trump’s selection of Green as Army secretary earlier this month. The American Military Partner Association, the largest group of LGBT military families, said Green has made “a shameful political career out of targeting LGBT people for discrimination.” The group’s president, Ashley Broadway-Mark, added that Green has a “vicious, anti-LGBT record” and “cannot be trusted to ensure all those who serve have the support they need and deserve.”
TITANIC. Senator Chuck Schumer says Michael Flynn revelations might be tip of the iceberg: “The disturbing news that General Flynn may have violated the law in connection with his security clearance may be just the tip of the iceberg,” the lawmaker said in a statement. “These revelations highlight the importance of the intelligence committee working in a bipartisan way to request and receive documents with respect to any financial arrangements Flynn and others in similar positions may have had with foreign governments.”

WORLD OUTGAMES. Adidas to sponsor LGBT-focused sporting and human rights event that will be held in Miami starting May 26: “The relationship between Adidas and the World OutGames—which the parties are describing as more a collaborative partnership rather than a strict sponsorship—is one of several moves that Adidas has made to promote outreach to the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community.”
OBAMA FAGGOT OBAMA DYKE. Vandal sprays homophobic graffiti on Queens garages. “It has happened before,” Montaudouin said. “In fact, regularly. Every time we patch it over, it comes back.

#throwback to the time my shoulder wasn't exploded into a million pieces. As frustrating as they are, obstacles are a part of life and when you overcome one, another will follow. But that's called growth, they teach us and we learn. In one aspect or another we advance even if we feel they hold us back:) I hope everyone has a blessed week! Retouched by @esaverio
