    • Cecelia

      That’s how you declare your moral bonafides. You lecture others, rip the U.S., and you back certain public policies.

      Though if you do the latter absolutely nothing else is required.

  • Larry Kelly
    • Shep must watch a lot of MSNBC. Today’s the second time in the last week or two he’s referenced something he saw on MSNBC…and with Sharpton no less.

      • Larry Kelly

        He mentioned yesterday he’s regular viewer of Kelly & Michael Live, but on DVR as there is a travel part he hates and FFwd through it.

      • Cecelia

        I saw on Twitter that MSNBC had Brian Williams breaking in with the big news on Prince.

        Guess all that speculation about him staying marginalized was wrong.

        • GATXER

          Well Williams is the most trustworthy person on MSNBC. 🙂

          • Cecelia

            True. Maybe someone should recheck Prince’s pulse.

          • Larry Kelly

            He claims to have been Prince’s Bernie Taupin.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          Does this mean that William is next in line to the throne?

  • Son of Blackflon

    I remember fondly when my dad-blackflon would sing Purple Rain to me as he rocked me to sleep…..

    • Cecelia

      He was singing Purple Haze and at the time he thought he was slow dancing with Cher.

      • Son of Blackflon

        Well he did do acid when I was young

        • He was visiting you, Son.

        • Cecelia

          Young as in a gleam in his eye.

          That explains a lot.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          Your mom must’ve when she was pregnant with you.

          • Son of Blackflon

            Ouch! I and dad flon would like you to change your icon to honor the slaughtered redman

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            You’re doing well enough with yours honoring a mass murderer. Red, black, brown, white…he killed then all. He was especially fond of shooting women and children in the heads. Honor him, be proud. Or change it to somebody less offensive like Charlie Manson.

          • Son of Blackflon

            And your moniker Nixon who shredded the constitution
            Bombed Laos and Cambodia and never petted his dog Checkers

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            At least he wasn’t a commie bastid.

    • You were lucky they allowed visitors at that jail.

      • Son of Blackflon

    • Larry Kelly

      I fondly remember when my dad-kelly would sing My Wild Irish Rose after he had downed a fith of it.

      • Son of Blackflon

        My dad Blackflon never drank
        He has a natural inebriation
        But boy can he rock you to sleep…..

        • Cecelia

          You do a good job of that yourself.

  • dsmawley

    Megyn, don’t take any advice from his clownship Glenn Beck!

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      I don’t think that Glenn Beck even takes advice from Glenn Beck.

  • Larry Kelly

    With report by TVNEWSER that death of the artist was dominating cable news, I treated it like a mass shooting: left TV turned off.

    • TheMightyINB

      The artist formally known as being alive?
