Really really stupid: Pope Francis met with a delegation of NBA players in the Vatican Monday to discuss economic equality issues.” According to a report by ESPN, at the pope’s behest, the Vatican reached out to the basketball players’ association last week because the pontiff wished to know more about how players “had recently brought attention to pressing social justice issues and economic inequality,” in reference to players’ taking a knee to protest “systemic racism” and other issues.

Another has-been should stfu: Bette Midler is speaking pout about capital punishment, because “Trump.” According to Midler, the six prisoners, scheduled to be executed before the “inauguration”, all of whom have committed despicable crimes and murders, is typical of the “sadist” individual Trump is. Midler’s opposition to the death penalty comes despite the fact that she has repeatedly advocated violence against her own political enemies. Last year, she deleted a tweet praising the man who attacked Sen. Rand Paul back in 2017, a beating that left the Kentucky Republican with lung tissue damage and multiple broken ribs. And a search shows not a single Midler comment on capital punishment in the last 45 years. NOT ONE, but you know, Trump.
