Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Thanks to the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States in November 2016, angry liberal Hollywood, still unable to accept the will of American voters, is dusting off and bringing back a television show from the 1990’s. This time it is the show devoted to witchcraft and female empowerment on the old WB network, titled Charmed. Since it's 2018, the three sisters can no longer be white and one of them has to be a lesbian, apparently.
It's a conversation, Barney, not a soliloquy . . .
Discussing the regulation of executive pay with CNBC's Mark Haines today, the testy liberal Dem from Massachusetts was affronted when Haines tried to get in a word edgewise.
Before long, Barney announced that the interview was over, and ripped off his earpiece. Unruffled, Haines got off a good last line: "Fine, goodbye sir. We'll manage without you." [Hat tip reader Chuck S.]

On CNN's American Morning today, White House correspondent Suzanne Malveaux reported on Barack Obama's campaigning in Virginia. Afterwards, anchor Kiran Chetry had a question:
CHETRY: All right. And Suzanne, what's on tap for the campaign today? And please tell me it's not lipstick again.
MALVEAUX: Let's hope not. He's going to be in Norfolk, Virginia. That is in southeast Virginia, and it's home to the world's largest Naval base. It's one of the most competitive areas that the Democrats and Republicans are fighting over. It's a critical piece of property, piece of land there with folks in Virginia, and they want those voters.
It wasn't good news by any means, but it also wasn't the end of the world.
