    Yesterday I learned what a squatty potty was. I learned because Anderson Cooper’s gal pal was their soon to be ex-spokesman. I learned Mr. Concha has three of them. I learned the customer reviews on AMAZON were too gross to read.

    • Joe Concha

      “The stool for better stools.” Tremendous slogan.

      • Cecelia

        Three of them?

        Just eat more fiber.

        • Joe Concha

          Good point.

    • Mitch Alan

      Why buy three of them? Buy just 1 and carry it from bathroom to bathroom. You can also take it to work using a cardboard box.

      • Joe Concha

        I’ll take laziness for $100, Alex.

        • Larry Kelly

          A family can function with one glass if they wash it between sips.

          • Cecelia

            That’s not a pretty analogy.

          • Larry Kelly

            Neither is carrying the squatty potty from the basement bathroom to the wife’s upstairs bathroom and then to the kids room. Then. running around looking for the damn stool when you forget where it was last. “A squatty stool in ever bathroom.” That will be my campaign slogan when I run for township trustee.

        • Larry Kelly

          never know when your doctor might request a stool sample

        • That reminds me: Ken Jennings is in hot water for taking offense to President Trump invoking Barron over the Kathy Griffin flap. For the record, he only had one tweet regarding the infamous uncorrected typo. Further for the record, he retweeted a climate change tweet. As I said about Tom Bergeron over the weekend, it’s disappointing when you find out your heroes differ from you politically.

          • homemaker

            Jennings had some tweets about Barron Trump that I personally thought were over the line yesterday. You can think one way about someone & and voila! their tweets can make you think something completely different.That happened to me yesterday.

          • Cecelia

            Oh, you can fear monger by saying that Trump’s budget proposal is designed to make life harder and shorter for those who the president hates, but if you say a horrific picture of what appears to be your decapitated head has horrified your fifth grader, you’re using him as a prop.

          • Joe Concha

            Replace Barron with Sasha, close eyes, turn on the visual, and duck.

          • carolr527

            Not according to Eboni Williams. She has done this several times before. Today on The Specialists when the topic was Jennings and Kathy Griffin, she said when people did this to Obama no one was worried about Sasha and Malia. Whenever the topic is the way the media treats Trump, she always brings up how badly Obama was treated. I don’t remember anyone holding up Obama’s severed head and I don’t remember anyone criticizing the Obama girls, except for one Republican staffer.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            The Obamas were treated like royalty. Actually, more like deities. Eboni may feel comfortable in her little fantasy world where everybody was bad to Obama, but the facts speak otherwise.

          • Grandpa D

            Those who are smart are not always wise.

          • Minnesota Nice

            I realized Ken Jennings was a radical years ago when he tweeted a picture of his young daughter giving the finger in church to the church pulpit. It’s very obvious he put her up to it. What a disgusting dad to use his underage daughter for his anti-religious sentiment.

          • Presbyter

            Wasn’t he a Mormon?

  • GATXER

    Example #39876 why you cant trust a newshound.
    This little gem from Disgraced racist Ice yesterday

    https://twitter.com/IceManNYR/status/869730669164888068
    FOX’s #TheFive has time to cover Kathy Griffin and Tiger Woods DUI but no time for the horrible #Portland Stabbing. Fair and Balanced!

    But you know there always a catch with a newshound boy………it was brought up by juan williams in the A block……it just wasn’t the topic at hand and wasn’t shown as a topic on The Fives page….so if you didn’t actually watch you wouldn’t know it was talked about…………but never mind that its a 5 day old story………..it makes in his deluded mind Conservatives look bad…….never mind the murder hated Trump……so he runs with it.

    This wasn’t a mistake it was in the first 10 min of the show………it was a LIE! When you say something wasn’t discussed and it was…..that’s not a mistake….its a lie.

    Need more proof that the disgraced Racist Newshounds don’t really watch so you don’t have to?????

    • Larry Kelly

      The truth at Newshounds walks on thin Ice.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        But their sheets are nice and white.

    May 2017 Ratings: Fox News Remains the Most-Watched Cable News Network

    http://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/may-2017-ratings-fox-news-remains-the-most-watched-cable-news-network/330617

    However POLITICO reporters says this:

    They cant be first and third at the same time can they?

    • Cecelia

      Demo perhaps?

      • GATXER

        Well from the adweek link it doesn’t look like it but I cant really tell and cant find a place that says….I’m sure J$ knows.

        I wish if people aren’t talking about total viewer they would says so………..

      • GATXER

        http://www.thewrap.com/fox-news-tops-basic-cable-in-total-day-for-11th-month-in-a-row/

        Well this says Fox won the demo for the month also. MSNBC only won the prime time demo race.

        • One of yesterday’s links spells it out: Fox won total viewers AND the demo for the full day, and for primetime Sun-Sat as well. MSNBC won the weeknight primetime demo. Only on Bizarro Planet is FNC in third place.

          • GATXER

            Oops didn’t see that one …thanks.

        • LenInFlux

          Given how both CNN and MSNBC’s ratings have gone way up in the Trump era you’d think that instead of running Lockup reruns they would give some original political programming. I wouldn’t consider Watters World to be must-see-tv but Fox smartly doesn’t take anything for granted.

  • Larry Kelly

    It’s getting ridiculous when Ed Schultz is on the side of the angles:
    http://www.mediaite.com/online/ed-schultz-blasts-absolute-hogwash-cnn-for-comey-reporting-witch-hunt-against-kushner/
    PBS NEWSHOUR used CNN reporting last night as its excuse to predict the former FBI chief would testify Trump pressured him to shut down investigation.

    • Mitch Alan

      Ed Schultz is on the side of anyone who is signing his paycheck.

      • Larry Kelly

        don’t mean he and they are wrong

    • Presbyter

      The angels too I guess.

      • Larry Kelly

        i was being obtuse

  • LenInFlux

    Trish Regan has a nice looking family – didn’t know she had twin girls.

    • Mitch Alan

      It was a shame she didn’t get the 7 pm slot on FNC. Martha MacCallum is really sleep-inducing and boring.

      I don’t trust the judgement of whoever is running Fox News these days.

      • LenInFlux

        I wonder who came up with the “Fox News Specialists” – I’ve tried to give that show a chance but it’s just bad (or maybe just a cookie cutter opinion show with oddball guests).

        • GATXER

          Well I DVR-ed the first few but after all the bad reviews I just deleted
          them……..watching my first full show today……..it no better or
          worse than any other show on CNN or MSNBC…….but I tend to expect
          better from FOX. I doubt I will be a regular watcher. I just happen to
          be doing nothing today.

          • Mitch Alan

            I will usually watch FBN or BBC World News at 5pm. I used to like Eric Bolling and Eboni Williams, but I am unable to sit through that show.

      • Lurker

        Megyn leaving is like Martha hitting the LOTTERY

        • Cecelia

          I miss Megyn.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            So do I.

  • Mitch Alan

    Shep Smith very sad about us pulling out of the Paris Climate Change Agreement. Very sad. Chris Wallace is also upset. What happened to fair and balanced?

    • Larry Kelly

      Balanced when Neil Cavuto came on and sad gave way.

      • Lurker

        No brainer TRUMP would pull out!

        TRUMP is an EGOMANIAC, he wants to be the Best Republican President ever! For him to considered the best, he will do everything to make Conservatives happy

        It’s going to be a GREAT 8 years! lol

        • Larry Kelly

          He knows the secret to keep from being impeached is to keep his 40% base content. He will do that.

          • Lurker

            His base is SOLID =)

    • TheMightyINB

      How do you still not understand that “fair and balanced” does not mean “right-wing echo chamber?”

      • Cecelia

        Because everyone is becoming ideology purity cops.

        I find myself wanting to drop kick into Cuba the Never Trumpers. Objectively, I know that everyone doesn’t have to think alike and that Trump has given a lot of reason to congratulate themselves.

        It’s human nature to demand conformity.

        • Larry Kelly

          We don’t need it at FNC and we don’t need it around here.

      I heard on the news today that China has announced measures to grow their economy that will grow their carbon footprint (plans to build more coal plants and so forth). So this whole thing seems like belonging to, say, an anti-racism club and your membership makes you feel good about yourself but the club never does anything beside collect dues and having a bowling night.

    I made a fine blackberry cobbler and no one saved me a piece.

    • Minnesota Nice

      It was delicious. 😉

      • Cecelia

        You know it’s my grandmother’s recipe and I knew that monolith of stalwardness had crossed a road when I was eating her wonderful cobbler and bit Into a bandaid she must have had around her finger.

        I baked a nice juicy one into my cobbler in memory of her. Hope you enjoyed it.

    Glad MacCallum is continuing to stay .
    And glad having a chance of more Chris Jansing anchoring
