In case you missed it, President Donald J. Trump addressed Muslim Leaders at the Arab Islamic American Summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on May 21, 2017.

I want to thank King Salman for his extraordinary words, and the magnificent Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for hosting today’s summit. I am honored to be received by such gracious hosts. I have always heard about the splendor of your country and the kindness of your citizens, but words do not do justice to the grandeur of this remarkable place and the incredible hospitality you have shown us from the moment we arrived.

You also hosted me in the treasured home of King Abdulaziz, the founder of the Kingdom who united your great people. Working alongside another beloved leader – American President Franklin Roosevelt – King Abdulaziz began the enduring partnership between our two countries. King Salman: your father would be so proud to see that you are continuing his legacy – and just as he opened the first chapter in our partnership, today we begin a new chapter that will bring lasting benefits to our citizens.

National Hug a Newsperson Day

April 4 is not just another ordinary day… it’s National Hug A Newsperson Day! Seriously. It is. And in case you think this is just another fake news story, think again. I researched it and hereby confirm National Hug a Newsperson Day is, indeed, 100% legit. Oddly enough, according to the official website, the best way to observe the occasion is to hug your newsperson, but no worries if you aren’t able to do it in person. You can send virtual hugs to all your faves by posting the official hashtag to social media.

Top Ten 2017 Super Bowl Ads

Last year, I published the first ever official Just Another Ordinary Day List of Top Ten Super Bowl Ads.  I anticipated it would be an annual tradition published each year on the Monday immediately following the big game, but compiling this year’s list has proven to be no easy task. It’s why I’m a week late.

Super Bowl Sundays historically provide us with bumper crops of captivating ads…the kind you remember for years to come… like this one from 1995, but…

…not this year. I’m not certain who lost their creative edge and sense of humor… the advertisers or me… but somebody did because this yield of $5-million-dollar-a-pop ads left me overwhelmingly underwhelmed. Anyway, I promised myself this would be a tradition and since I never break a promise (even to myself) I present the second official Just Another Ordinary Day List of Top Ten Super Bowl Ads.

Talk Is Cheap

Check out how quickly these hypocrites bleeding hearts abandon their principles when asked to do something more than exploit the right to shriek speak freely and parade around with placards in protest.  Freedoms protected under the first amendment are precious, but talk is cheap.  Watch.

Practice what you preach.

#NotMyMarch

I contemplated attending the Women’s March on Washington for about a nano-second before I figured out it was not my march.

On Friday, January 13  – a week before the march – New Wave Feminists, a Texas-based pro-life feminist group, was added to the event’s official list of partners. Wow, I thought, maybe this is a sign that modern feminism is beginning to acknowledge that a moral opposition to abortion and a desire for political, economic and social equality of the sexes are not mutually exclusive.
