When having as bad of a week as Ilhan Omar the last thing you do is quote conspiracy kooks — and yet that is what she did

 

As weeks go it has not been the best for the lightning-rod-of-Congress, Ilhan Omar. She fell for Trump’s provocation and got into a beef with Nancy Pelosi. She came off as ridiculous while sitting in with Rachael Maddow, has sounded childish in claims of racism, and her bid for impeaching the President has been one big fizzle.

‘It gets worse’: Yahoo’s demented hit job on Chris Pratt also dragged veterans’ charity through the mud

As Twitchy told you yesterday, Yahoo! Entertainment did their damnedest to create a controversy out of Chris Pratt wearing a Gadsden Flag t-shirt. As evidence of the backlash against Pratt’s “white supremacist” clothing, writer Hanna Flint cited … a handful tweets. Some backlash, right?
