wish President Trump would clarify his remark that “the age of men is over, the time of the orc has come” so as not to play into the hands of those who would portray him as being anti-men and pro-orc

GREAT this courageous humanitarian rat not only has done more for mankind than I can ever hope to do but also he eats better and works out more?? give me a break

“When he is not in the minefield, the two-foot-long rat likes snacking on bananas, peanuts and watermelons, and taking a spin on the running wheel.”

“do you scare easily?” well I regularly read horror at night and watched Texas Chainsaw Massacre without incident but one time my husband didn’t make enough noise coming into the kitchen and was suddenly there when I turned around and I’m still recovering from that

Attorney Ben Crump, who is representing Breonna Taylor's family, tweeted that the charges against a Kentucky police officer involved “NOTHING for the murder of Breonna Taylor. This is outrageous and offensive!”

if anyone needs me i'll be curled up into a ball emitting a low-pitched wail

More than 6 months after Breonna Taylor was killed, a grand jury indicts 1 officer on criminal charges. Former detective Brett Hankison has been charged with three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment. #BreonnaTaylor
