Although Gaffigan is a Catholic and considered a Christian, at least by his Catholic priest in New York City, where he lives, he did not seem to know why hospitals are named after Mr. Sinai or for Jesus’ apostles.
Instead, he made fun of the names during his "Noble Ape" standup special:
“My wife had the surgery at a hospital named Mt. Sinai. I’ve noticed that a lot of hospitals are either named after (Christian) saints or ancient places in Israel, which is not that reassuring, when you think about it. It’s like, ‘Hi, welcome to our hospital, we’re all about science, which is why our building is named after the place where God talked to Moses as a burning bush. Over hear’s our Casper the Ghost wing, next to our astrology center. Do you like UFOs? We love those. We’re all about science.”
Pres. Trump chastizes Iran and Venezuela, condemns promoters of illegal immigration during UN speech
Pres. Donald Trump blasted Iranian and Venezuelan leaders during a 40-minute speech at the United Nations General Assembly Thursday in New York City. While Iranian leaders sat stone faced, a young Venezuelan representative attempted to look busy and distracted while holding a book. China was also in the president's crosshairs, as he recounted a history of their taking advantage of the World Trade Organization and American businesses. He accused China of stealing technology for making computer chips from Micron, then shutting out Micron from selling semiconductors there.
Rep. Devin Nunes launched yet another blistering attack on the integrity of the latest Democrat led investigation into what by all accounts turns out to be a completely legal conversation between Pres. Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Initial reports claimed there was a quid pro quo between Trump and Zelensky. Although that proved to be false, it did not stop Democrats from claiming the conversation violated some kind of law, o was in some way corrupt.
Former Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski shared the story of his meteoric rise from congressional staffer, to peace officer, to campaign manager for the future president of the United States, Pres. Donald J. Trump during testimony at a House Oversight committee hearing. The hearing was either combative or encouraging, depending on whether the congressman asking the questions was Democrat or Republican.
Heather Mac Donald disrupted the normal black victimhood mantra normally presented at congressional hearings, like the one Wednesday during the House Oversight Committee on Policing Practices. The norm is too hear multiple stories about how police are the reason why blacks live in sub standard and often inhumane conditions, that blacks in the inner city are afraid of police, that they have to warn their children about how to talk to police so as not to make them angry.
During Corey Lewandowski's testimony before the House Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday, Rep. Shirley Jackson Lee objected to being referred to, along with her Democrat colleagues, as useful idiots by Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado.
Buck started his five minutes by referring to an Alliance for Securing Democracy report, which indicates that Russia interfered with elections in more than a dozen countries, including Belarus, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom, Ukraine, and the United States. But he went further, suggesting that Democrats, by holding the hearing, are playing into the hands of Russia in their efforts to undermine American interests.
Felicity Huffman decided to live out her husband, William H. Macy's character on "Shameless," by paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older daughter's answers on the SAT. She considered taking the same shameless action for her younger daughter, but decided against it.
Macy has played a starring role in the series that depicts the poor, dysfunctional family of Frank Gallagher, a single father raising six children. He spends his days drunk or in search of misadventures, and his children learn to take care of themselves. Trouble is, in real life, Macy or his wife are not supposed to take actions that might land them in jail. That's for other people, who don't have a sense of shame.
