Brittle Foxes

From David Zurawik at THE BALTIMORE SUN:

It was hard to imagine a news organization taking any hit comparable to the one Fox News did in August when founder Roger Ailes was pushed out amid charges of sexual harassment.

But the news today that Bill O’Reilly would not be returning to the highest rated show on cable news might be even bigger, because of his status as an on-air personality and the foundation of an incomparable primetime ratings lineup.

Le Pen and La Pencildick

From THE LOCAL (FRANCE):

While Russia has been formally accused of trying to meddle in the French presidential election to seek a favourable outcome, it seems they are not the only ones (alleged) interfering.

The company Linkfluence, which monitors social media channels, released data to BFM TV that suggests American internet users are also trying to influence the outcome of the presidential election by helping to boost Marine Le Pen’s chances of winning.

It comes after news site Buzzfeed claimed in January that Trump supporters were pretending to be French online in a bid to help the National Front’s Marine Le Pen.

Easter Basketcase

From silive.com:

As the White House prepares for its annual Easter Egg Roll on Monday, April 17, social media posts remind the world when Press Secretary Sean Spicer donned the Easter Bunny costume during George W. Bush’s administration.

…snip…

With the egg roll coming up soon, some wonder if Spicer will resume his role as the White House Easter Bunny again this year.

Princess Twitlerella

From International Business Times:

US President Donald Trump is keen to use the Queen’s royal carriage to travel down The Mall to Buckingham Palace.

I thought pumpkins turned into coaches, not ride in them! Anyway, here’s what Twitler is imagining. Wait until Prince Philip finds out that Twitler expects him to caddy for him.

Gall In the Family

From Think Progress:

There’s supposed to be a firewall between President Trump and the business he continues to own, which is being run by his his two adult sons, Eric and Donald Jr. Both Trump Sr. and Eric have recently made public statements about their commitment to making sure the presidency doesn’t becoming a money-making venture for the Trump family.

But there’s already been indications that firewall isn’t as firm as it should be.

A Little Veruca Salt to Rub in Steve Bannon’s Wounds?

From Think Progress:

Ivanka Trump — an official government employee without military experience but with her own White House office— reportedly influenced President Donald Trump’s decision to strike against Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad last week, according to her brother Eric Trump.

Trump authorized a U.S. missile attack on a Syrian airbase on Friday in response to a chemical weapons attack allegedly committed by the Assad regime that killed scores of people, including more than 30 children.

“Ivanka is a mother of three kids and she has influence. I’m sure she said: ‘Listen, this is horrible stuff,’” Eric Trump told The Telegraph.

“My father will act in times like that,” Eric Trump added.

Hey! If that’s all it takes, maybe there’s a way to get rid of Steve Bannon quickly!
