Ex Arsenal Flop Mistakenly Pictured in Breitbart Story on Migrant Gangs

lukas podolski

Alt-right website Breitbart .com has had more than its share of controversy over the years. They certainly have gotten a lot wrong along the way too. This time, their mistake was to include a picture of former Arsenal FC flop Lukas Podolski in a story entitled “Spanish Police Crack Gang Moving Migrants on Jet-Skis.”

Podolski, a Polish born German international who now plays his club ball for J-League side Vissel Kobe, has absolutely nothing to do the subject matter of the story. The only connection he has to the Breitbart “article” is the fact that he’s on a jetski in the photo.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has no more worries about approval ratings. In his next career, the ratings he’ll be pre-occupied with will pertain to radio listenership. Christie is going through the motions as he finishes out his final term, blissfully aware that it no longer matters what the public thinks of him as a politician.

The Fourth of July Holiday week, in which Beachgate had a heavy presence in the news cycle, showcased just how much Chris Christie doesn’t a give a you-know-what. Well, in his next career, being hated could help, as long as the haters tune in.

Bobby Knight Really Sucks as a Human Being, Now Let’s Move on From Him

bobby knight

Why is Bobby Knight still a thing? We’ve known for several decades already what kind of horrible human being he is. During his 76 years on this planet he’s racked up an infamous resume of deplorable actions that should have long disqualified him from relevance and being worthy of our attention.

Yet here we are again, talking about another disgusting thing Bobby Knight did. This time, he went to give a motivational speech at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and he ended up under investigation from both the FBI and the U.S. Army for groping the female employees.

The Chicago Cubs visited the White House for a second time yesterday, and this time the occasion had very limited media access. Limitations aside, this photo of Cubs outfielder Albert Almora seemingly extending his middle finger, albeit downward emerged and briefly created some uproar.

Of course, if Almora was actually “flipping the bird” to President Trump, he would have had his hand turned upward, not downward. Have a look:

ana navarro

Ana Navarro, conservative strategist and political commentator, absolutely stole the show at the 2017 AHAA: The Voice of Hispanic Marketing conference. Her Tuesday morning session, “Multiculturalism and Today’s Media: The 2016 Election and What It All Means,” was the highlight of the entire event. The jokes she made about “The Wall” and her story of what she said to Paul Ryan at the Romney retreat was worth the price of admission all by itself.

She was part of a panel that included the woman in that AWFUL  Tronc video Anne Vasquez, and Juan Carlos Lopez, anchor of CNN en Español.
