Muhammad Ali's son detained at airport

25 February 2017 - 06:33 PM

Muhammad Ali Jr. was reportedly detained at the Ft. Lauderdale airport. According to a family friend and attorney, Ali and his mother were detained for their "Arabic sounding names" and Mr. Ali was asked twice during his 2 hour detainment if he was Muslim.

 

Interestingly, Mr. Ali's mother was released when she showed officials a photograph of her with Muhammad Ali, but her son had no picture proving his identity, though he did have a U.S. passport. They were traveling from Jamaica.

 

This was reported on several news sites, but I have no idea if it's fake news, or not.


The view from the couch

Whenever I need to convince myself the current POTUS is really good for a chuckle, I find something straight from his mouth, unedited.

 

Full transcript of President Trump's remarks commemorating Black History Month.

 

He's precious, isn't he? The video is even better, you get the full effect of his oral presentation "style".

 

By the way, there was no published, vetted report of Trump moving the bust of Martin Luther King, Jr., it was a Tweet from a NYT reporter who corrected it and apologized within one hour when he discovered the bust behind a door.

 

 

On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

The Dakota Access Pipeline project has been halted by the Army Corp of Engineers while alternate routes are investigated.

 

They can call off the attack dogs and stow the water cannons now.


I missed this during the debate...

At least someone's making a buck off this nonsense...
