One Million Moms, a far-right Christian group, is offended by Hallmark commercial of newlywed women kissing

A coterie of Karens, banded together under the banner "One Million Moms," have called for a boycott of the Hallmark Channel after it ran a commercial that showed a married couple kissing.

Border troops bracing for possible clashes with armed crackpot militias of U.S. citizens, not Migrant Caravan

U.S. military intelligence analysis documents obtained by Newsweek reveal that defense officials do not believe there are terrorists or other national security threats present within the so-called “migrant caravan.” Despite this, Trump has demanded that up to 15,000 military troops be dispatched to the border, to brace for an “invasion” that doesn't exist, just before the midterm elections.
