    Just saw that. Gutfeld, on Fox, said, "What is this, the Onion?"

    If anyone wonders why ESPN is in trouble financially, this is all the proof they need. If cable TV had a la carte pricing, ESPN would have declared bankruptcy long ago.

    William and Mary will probably be changing to Mary and William soon, too.

    I suspect CNN has been trolled. This first appeared on a satire site and then the first 24 hours it was not being source by any reputable site

    All Asians named Lee are just acceptable casualties of the war. His family should have thought it through before picking such a racist name. Clearly, they picked the wrong side. Sympathizers must be punished. It's all in the history books written by the winners, so get over it.

    Yeah I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings. Watching the media respond today to the trouncing that Trump gave them last night though has been pretty entertaining....
