Tired of boring, binary gender options on your dating app? Lucky for you, Tinder has added dozens of new gender preferences!

Among the selections listed are “transgender female,” “transsexual male,” “agender,” and genderqueer.” And if 37 is still too few, Tinder now includes the possibility of writing in your own gender term.

ABC's George Stephanopoulos questioned President Obama from the left on Tuesday's GMA, as he interviewed Megyn Kelly. The Fox News host disclosed that "we're being told that Steve Bannon will really have the ear of Donald Trump." Stephanopoulos replied, "So that would suggest, perhaps, that President Obama was wrong in his judgment...when he said that he doesn't think Donald Trump is ideological — thinks he's pragmatic." The anchor also asked Kelly, "What do you say to those critics who say this is bringing a white supremacist into the White House?"

Liberal director Joss Whedon on Monday warned that Donald Trump “cannot be allowed” to take office. Without explaining exactly what he meant, the Avengers filmmaker tweeted, “This is simple: Trump cannot CANNOT be allowed a term in office. It's not about 2018. It's about RIGHT NOW.”

On Sunday, Matthew Harrigan, the President and CEO of PacketSled, Inc., posted specific threats to assassinate President-elect Donald Trump on Twitter and Facebook. The company's board placed Harrigan on administrative leave on Monday and announced his "resignation" very early Tuesday morning.
That a company CEO could do what Harrigan did has to be national news, right? Well, not yet. Searches on the company's name at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday morning at the Associated Press's main national site, its Big Story site, and at the New York Times returned no results, even though the tweets involved occurred about 1-1/2 days ago. And where are the lamentations about the "climate of hate" which might have brought such a person to do something so completely unhinged?

In an article for Sunday’s New York Times that bordered on parody, reporter Jason Horowitz touted concerns from Washington D.C. liberals that the incoming Trump administration would sap the nation’s capital of its culture: “What the effect on Washington will be when Donald J. Trump moves into the White House is hard to predict. But many Washingtonians fear the worst.”

If there’s one thing Hollywood currently hates more than Donald Trump, it is the Electoral College that clinched his victory over Hillary Clinton. But are celebrities cognizant of the identity of the man who promoted this unique American institution?

A post-election MRC/YouGov Poll of more than 2,000 actual voters demonstrates the American people were not persuaded by the dishonest liberal media to vote against Trump

As a panel on Sunday's CNN Newsroom with Poppy Harlow discussed the announcement that Donald Trump campaign chief Steve Bannon would be appointed as a high-ranking strategist in the White House, conservative CNN political commentator and former GOP Congressman Jack Kingston was outnumbered by liberals four to one as the group repeatedly pushed charges of "racism" against Bannon. Accusations of "anti-Semitism" and of being a "white supremacist" were recycled, and CNN's Brian Stelter asserted that some find him "frightening" enough to view his presence in the White House as a "national emergency." And at one point, Kingston was even scolded by host Poppy Harlow when he suggested that "journalists" are often equivalent to "Democrats" recalling findings that more than 90 percent of campaign donations given by journalists go to Democrats. Harlow: "That's really -- you know what, Congressman. I take issue with that. That's really unfair."

British comedian John Oliver remained in full denial on his Sunday night HBO show, bitterly lashing out with expletives at Americans for supporting Donald Trump, demanding: “How the f- -k did we get here and what the f- -k do we do now?” He proceeded to blame Trump’s win on “deep racism and/or indifference to it,” the media for going too easy on him as they failed to destroy “a serial liar” and argued that to “mitigate Trump’s damage” his viewers should support mainstream media outlets.

On CNN Newsroom Monday, host Brianna Keilar claimed that she covered an incident or incidents involving Tea Party "people" (plural) who spit on members of Congress and hurled racial slang terms at African-American members of Congress.
In the Tea Party's seven-plus years of national presence, there is only one known event involving two separate incidents when what Keilar referred to could conceivably have occurred. Despite what Keilar claims took place, and despite the presence of hundreds of fellow protesters and dozens of phone and other cameras at the incidents, no one has ever proven that anyone deliberately spat on a member of Congress, nor has anyone proven that racial epithets or slang terms were hurled. The available evidence indicates that these things never happened.

In an episode titled “#StayWoke,” ABC’s newest crime procedural, Conviction, went all-in on Black Lives Matter talking points. Within the first five minutes of the episode, various characters claim that white defendants get a pass, black demonstrations are called “riots,” but when whites riot it’s called a “demonstration,” that “justice is clearly not color-blind,” and that the black defendant at the heart of the episode was railroaded by an all-white jury in Albany.

I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised at this. If I’m watching a science-fiction show, the first thing I should suspect is them peddling the greatest science-fiction of them all: global warming. Perhaps the CW’s Supergirl thinks I’ll swallow whatever they’re saying better than believing a man (or woman) can fly, but climate change remains just as nonsensical as if it were coming from Bill Nye the (fake) Science Guy.
