What's Next for Trump after the GOP Tax Plan? The 'Black People Plan'
You’ve all likely seen the hideous Donald Trump. Oh, wait, there was more to that sentence. You’ve all likely seen the hideous Donald Trump wax figure that Disney unveiled for their Hall of Presidents attraction. Personally, I think it looks better than Donny. I think it looks kind of like they took the Peter Boyle statue from the Everybody Loves Raymond attraction and slapped a squirrel pelt on his head. Madame Tussauds got in on the digs too. - (The Hill)
According to The Daily Beast, President Trump has signaled that he will not try to repeal Obamacare next, but he and Pastor Darrell Scott plan to start implementing their “black people plan.” (Scott, for the record, describes the Democratic party as “pimps” who “pimped out the inner city” like a “pimp stands next to a prostitute”. (Daily Beast)
You can't make it up: the Trump White House apparently plans to declare victory over Obamacare and move on to its … wait for it … "black people plan," run by Cleveland pastor Darrell Scott. Yeah, THAT Darrell Scott. https://t.co/8oZkKDEgLv— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) December 21, 2017

I’m not a baseball person, so I don’t know who Cole Hamels is, but it sounds like he and his wife are pretty awesome. They donated their $9.75 Million mansion to Camp Barnabas, a charity for individuals with chronic illnesses and special needs. - (Bleacher Report)
I’m also not an E! person, because I have no idea who Catt Sadler or Jason Kennedy are, BUT that’s not important. What IS important is that Catt Sadler has been doing her job at E! for ten years and when she found out that her co-host was making TWICE her salary, she felt she should be making more. When E! decided that they were ok with having such disparate pay ranges between their female and male hosts, Catt walked. GOOD FOR HER! - (Dlisted)
Mindy Kaling gave birth to her daughter with zero fanfare and she’s also given her a very lowkey and lovely name. - (LG)
We often bitch about how our doctors are disengaged and only spend a couple of minutes (at most) with us at our appointments. It’s nice to read stories where that’s just not the case. - (Yahoo)

There’s really no reason why looking at pictures of people in cars should be so entertaining, but when it’s the Royal Family arriving for pre-Christmas lunch, it just IS. I don’t know why. It just is. - (GFY)
