Welcome to News from Nowhere for this Sunday, the final day of April. I guess the big news this weekend is that the White House Correspondents Dinner happened last night with the Commander in Chief President Donald Trump conspicuous by his absence. Then again, how unpleasant must it be, eh, to have to sit and listen to all these biased media people, trashing and ridiculing your administration? I didn’t hear much of this dinner, but during the portion I tuned into they were making a joke of Steve Bannon being a Nazi. You get the picture.
Anyway, in typical Trump fashion, he held a counter-event — a rally in Pennsylvania celebrating 100 days in office. Take that, all you fake-news people in DC. He also took the opportunity to invite Philippine president Duterte to the White House! The Correspondents may have had their Dinner on Saturday, but once again, Trump eats the press.
In other news from the week, the left-wing protesters were at it again at Berkeley, trying to prevent yet more people they disagreed with from speaking. What happened there was that Ann Coulter’s speech was first cancelled, then it was rescheduled, and then it was cancelled again, all at the urging of these protesters.
All in all, this is pathetic.
Free speech is taking a beating at college campuses across America and the world, but especially at Berkeley. And every time something like this happens, where some protest is staged over a speech by someone right-leaning, the left’s credibility takes another blow, because conservatives are incensed and won’t put up with being silenced like this anymore. Most definitely, Ann Coulter is incensed.
In fact, I read that Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity are talking about teaming up and going on a college campus speaking tour, just for the heck of it. This is bound to attract all these “Alt-Left” people, as Hannity likes to call them. And of course, these protesters will all look like fascists again, as usual, trying to shout down the people they disagree with.
What they don’t realize is they have lost the public. Folks, it’s exactly this sort of mayhem, this shutting down of dissenting opinions, that led to Trump being elected President — and which will surely lead to his re-election, while we are at it.
Sadly, we are into tornado season in the United States. Four people lost their lives to a tornado in north Texas and 11 people died in the South overall from the storms that hit this weekend.
There is still a lot of concern about North Korea, there are a lot of war preparations going on there and more failed missile tests, and people are really worried that their unhinged leadership will ignite World War III. I guess the good news is nobody has been nuked — yet.
In music news, a total fiasco happened at the Fyre Festival. This was a music festival in the Bahamas that had been heavily promoted by all these supermodels like Emily Ratajkowski, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid, but which ended up being poorly organized and a total mess, including lousy food that looked like something served right out of a really bad school cafeteria. And apparently people paid thousands upon thousands of dollars to go to this.
In sports: Stanley Cup playoffs are still on, and to show you how bored the people of Canada are, the big controversy earlier this week was that hockey fans were all upset at Ottawa for not selling out the Ottawa Senators playoff game.
Could it be, folks, that maybe Canadians simply can’t afford the tickets anymore to this ridiculously overpriced National Hockey League?
Finally, I notice that it’s not just me who is interested in Baywatch actress Donna D’Errico, because the Daily Mail tracked her down and got some photos of her in a red swimsuit on the beach in Malibu, at age 49. Oh, Donna!
That is all for now.
