There’s nothing that ticks off the left like Chick-fil-A. And President Trump is a master troller who used that to full advantage this last week. Universities may be fine with banning Chick-fil-A but at the White House, they are at the top of the menu. And that is triggering some LGBTQ activists.
Trump served another feast of fast food to college football champions last week. This time it wasn’t McDonald’s and Wendy’s… it was the feared Chick-fil-A that sparked outrage and anger.

“For the second time this year, Donald Trump has invited an athletic team to the White House and boasted about serving them fast food,” wrote Tracy Gilchrist at The Advocate. “But this time, chicken sandwiches from the virulently anti-LGBTQ company Chick-fil-A were arranged on silver platters for champions on the North Dakota State Bison football team Monday.”
The horror of it all! The sky is falling!!
President Trump said the athletes requested Chick-fil-A so that is what they got. “We could’ve had chefs, we could have, but we had fast food — because I know you people,” Trump told the athletes. “Chick-fil-A, they say? Chick-fil-A.”
From The Daily Wire:
“Bill Browning of LGBTQ Nation denounced Chick-fil-A’s presence at the White House with the same fervor as Gilchrist.
“For the second time in his presidency, Donald Trump has served fast food to an athletic team to ‘celebrate’ their victory,” wrote Browning. “This time, the President who has attacked the LGBTQ community the most served up Chick-fil-A, a company known for opposing LGBTQ rights.”
“The left-wing hatred for Chick-fil-A began in 2012 when company president and COO Dan Cathy expressed support for traditional marriage, prompting boycotts across the country from LGBTQ activists.
“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,'” Cathy said at the time. “I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.”
“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit,” he said on the Biblical Recorder. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. … We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that. We intend to stay the course,” he said. “We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”
“Just last year, two major publications wrote scathing articles begging people to boycott the business: The New Yorker and Huffington Post. “If You Really Love LGBTQ People, You Just Can’t Keep Eating Chick-fil-A,” wrote Noah Michelson of HuffPo. When Chick-fil-A wanted to set up shop in New York City, Dan Piepenring of The New Yorker called it a “creepy infiltration” of the city.
“Later in 2018, the Pittsburgh city council signed a letter asking Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon to drop the Chick-fil-A Pittsburgh Kids Marathon one-mile run for children and their families at the Pittsburgh Marathon. Fortunately, the organizers did not cave.
“We have and will continue to be accepting of any individual or family who wants to participate in our events,” the organizers said in a statement. “This partnership with Chick-fil-A will help us ensure even more children in southwestern Pennsylvania can learn and share in our love of running.”
“Most recently, a Dean at Rider University resigned from his post when the school banned the chicken restaurant on campus.”
This is beyond dumb. Because Christians own a chicken restaurant the left just can’t take it. But they embrace those of the Muslim faith. Memo to the left… they stone gays to death or worse. The owner’s religion should make no difference when you decide to eat somewhere and if it does… that’s your thing, not mine.
Darn it… now I’ve got to go eat me some yummy Chick-fil-A. I guess I’ll just suffer through it and make mine a double.

Elizabeth Warren Blames Family For Telling Her She Was Native American On CNN Town Hall
On Monday night, a town hall event hosted by leftist propagandist Jake Tapper, fake Indian Senator Elizabeth Warren was asked about her “lack of presidential tact” in handling her phony claims of Native American heritage.
Warren, looking rather uncomfortable as she responded, seemingly blamed her family for lying to her about their heritage before she quickly changed the subject.
“How do you respond to people who think that, regardless of the underlying facts, the way you handled the question of your Native American heritage was tone deaf and indicative of a lack of presidential tact?” asked a man attending the event.
“Well, ya know, I grew up in Oklahoma. I learned about my family from my family,” she responded. “And, um, based on that, that’s just kind of who I am, and I do the best I can with it.”
Warren added that an “investigation” concluded that nothing that her or her family ever did with regard to claims of Native ancestry ever “played any role in any job I ever got.”
The senator then looked to pivot to her constituents’ needs, namely housing, education, and health care.
“I have now done 38 town halls in Massachusetts, last year. And this is my 32nd town hall since January. And what I’ve discovered is that people care a lot about what’s happening to their lives every single day and what touches them, like housing, and education, and health care. That’s the kind of reason that I’m in this fight and I’m going to stay in this fight, and I will tell you this: I’m going to fight it from the heart every inch of the way. I’ll do my best.”
Warren had long claimed that she was Native American, citing her family’s high cheekbones and suspect family recipes gathered in a family cookbook titled “Pow Wow Chow.” But in October, the senator’s released DNA test showed that she’s as little as 1/1,024 Native American.
Warren was slammed by the Cherokee Nation in the wake of the DNA test’s published results.
“Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong,” read a statement from Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. ”It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven.”

Ah yes, the candidate that’s willing to throw mom under the bus for the candidate’s own malfeasance.
That ought to play great with America!
Leftists are nothing but frauds. Serial liars that never stop lying, cheating and stealing. This is who they are. If Democrats spoke the truth..they would never ever get elected.

Dems Say Electoral College Was Created Because of Slavery, Then The Facts Hit Them
Here we go… the Democrats are once again claiming that the Electoral College was created because of slavery. Either they don’t know or understand history, or they are just lying their faces off. My bet is on the latter option. A whole bevy of leftists are now screaming over the Electoral College, saying that it needs to be done away with and a few states have already passed legislation on it.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) told CNN at a town hall in Mississippi this week that she wants to abolish the Electoral College. Of course, she does! Then the big cities on both coasts would pretty much rule the country and your average American would have no say in the matter. It’s a dream-come-true for Marxists!!
Warren claims that candidates avoid states that are not “battleground states” because of the Electoral College. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) followed suit on Tuesday, telling CNN the Electoral College was “conceived in sin” to “perpetuat[e] slavery.” What utter bull feces. Neither of those are true… not even close.
“The Electoral College is an institution created by Article II of the Constitution for the election of the president. It provides that each state will appoint a certain number of “electors,” equal to the number of representatives it has in Congress (House plus Senate). The electors are to meet in their respective states and cast their votes for president. The votes from all the states are then counted in Congress, and the person who wins a majority is elected president.
“The primary purpose of the Electoral College was to serve as a brake on populism. As Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist No. 68: “A small number of persons, selected by their fellow-citizens from the general mass, will be most likely to possess the information and discernment” necessary to select a person with “the requisite qualifications,” who would not use “low intrigue” or “little arts of popularity” to sway the masses of the people to support him.
“In other words, the Electoral College was designed as an anti-populist measure. Over time, the votes of the electors became more or less automatic — that is, all of a state’s electors generally case their vote for whichever presidential candidate wins the majority of votes in that state. Few were particularly bothered about that, until George W. Bush defeated Al Gore in 2000 despite losing the popular vote. Even after that, Democrats did not change the system.”
When Donald Trump was unexpectedly elected president, the Dems lost their ever-loving minds and have been claiming he’s illegitimate ever since. They just won’t drop the wacko conspiracy theory that somehow he conspired with the Russians to steal the presidency. Hillary Clinton had far more dealings with the Russians such as Skolkovo, so it would have been far more likely to occur the other way around. The Russians didn’t care who won really… they had contingency plans either way.
What won Trump the presidency was that he campaigned in Midwestern states that Hillary Clinton didn’t have time for or interest in. In other words, the common or working man and woman are the people who elected Trump. Because those Americans finally had their voices heard via the Electoral College, the Democrats want to undo a system that our Founding Fathers wisely crafted and put in place.
Should the Electoral College fall, you would see candidates spend all their time in densely populated areas such as the New York tri-state area and Southern California. Elections, therefore, would wind up being less representative. As President Trump tweeted Tuesday: “With the Popular Vote, you go to … just the large States – the Cities would end up running the Country. Smaller States & the entire Midwest would end up losing all power.”
More from Breitbart:
“A national popular vote would also enable cheating. Democrats know the voting rules are loosest in states they control, like California. In the 2018 midterm elections, for example, they used “ballot harvesting,” in which activists delivered thousands of mail-in ballots for other people. The practice is illegal in many states, but Democrats legalized it in California. They want to run up the score there, then use their “National Popular Vote Interstate Compact” to award other states’ electoral votes to the popular vote winner. Republicans cannot accept that.
“Then there is Cohen’s argument about slavery. He claims that the Electoral College was preferred by southern states because it allowed them greater clout than a national popular vote. Northern states could, theoretically, allow all of their adult residents to vote (though few did at the time). Southern states denied slaves the right to vote — but were allowed to count them, due to the infamous three-fifths compromise, in the size of their congressional delegations.
“That is part of the history of the Electoral College — even after the Civil War and the abolition of slavery, when Democrats in the South continued to restrict the right of blacks to vote until the latter half of the twentieth century.
“But that is not the reason the Electoral College was created, and at this stage it has no effect whatsoever on the way we elect presidents. (Arguably, it is Democrats today that want to disenfranchise black voters, and other citizens, by counting illegal aliens in the Census toward the apportionment of congressional representatives to the states.)”
The three-fifths compromise that came out of the Constitutional Convention was more about congressional representation and taxation than it was about the Electoral College system. “Indeed, the discussions about the compromise and the discussions about the presidential election system were largely separate,” Tara Ross, a retired lawyer and author of the book, “The Indispensable Electoral College: How the Founders’ Plan Saves Our Country from Mob Rule,” says. “The main reason the compromise is cited today is because, late in the convention, it was decided that each state’s electoral vote allocation would match its congressional allocation.”
According to Wallbuilders, there are three important benefits produced by the current electoral college system:
(1) Because a candidate must win at least 270 electoral votes from across the nation, a candidate cannot become president without a significant widespread voter base. In fact, as has happened in three previous elections, the distribution of voter support may actually take precedence over the quantity of voter support. Therefore, the electoral college ensures a broad national consensus for a candidate that subsequently will allow him to govern once he takes office.
(2) Since the electoral college operates on a State-by-State basis, this not only enhances the status of minorities by affording them a greater proportional influence within a smaller block of voters at the State level but it also ensures a geographically diverse population which makes regional domination, or domination of urban over suburban or rural areas, virtually impossible. In fact, since no one region of the country has 270 electoral votes, there is an incentive for a candidate to form coalitions of States and regions rather than to accentuate regional differences.
(3) The electoral college system prioritizes the most important factors in selecting a president. If a candidate receives a substantial majority of the popular vote, then that candidate is almost certain to receive enough electoral votes to be president. However, if the popular vote is extremely close, then the candidate with the best distribution of popular votes will be elected. And if the country is so divided that no one candidate obtains an absolute majority of electoral votes, then the U. S. House of Representatives — the body closest to the people and which must face them in every election — will then choose the president.
The Electoral College is a fundamental component forming the basis of our successful system of government. It should not be abolished. To the contrary, every argument currently raised against the Electoral College can be shown not only to be false and flawed but also to be more problematic than the alleged problems that it claims to solve. The Electoral College should be preserved.
