What the cluck – Mike Moon, a Missouri state rep, posted a video of himself decapitating a chicken to help introduce his new anti-abortion bill on Monday.
In the Facebook video, Moon had a live chicken hanging like a piñata from a tree. He proceeded to break the chicken’s neck and rip out it’s heart, all while casually explaining his legislation as if he was not arms deep in a chicken. The video, which looks like it was shot by his neighbor, was probably not the most effective way to reach his audience as presumably everyone was distracted by the fact that he just murdered a chicken with his bare hands.
Gov. Eric Greitens had called a special session to limit abortion, the Huffpost reported.
“So we’ve been called back to this special session for the primary purpose of supporting life, protecting the unborn specifically,” Moon said in his video. “I think we need to get to the heart of the matter here. So today, I’m filing a bill that will lead to the stopping of abortion in the state of Missouri and I hope you’ll support it.”
Facebook users were freaked out by Moon’s disturbing demonstration, which he suggested was similar to what you do to a baby when you have an abortion.
Some people seem to be freaking out about the chicken video… I wonder if they know what an abortion is?… https://t.co/N4YVaFdCvg

Smirnoff’s latest ad targets Trump – Smirnoff Vodka’s new ad campaign takes a shot at President Trump after he said he would “100 percent” testify under oath about Comey’s accusations.
Founded in Moscow, the vodka company released an ad first spotted in the New York area, which pictured a Moscow Mule cocktail and a slogan that read: “Made in America, but we’d be happy to talk about our ties to Russia under oath.”
“The recent interest in American-made products created the perfect opportunity to reinforce that fact and the brand’s roots in Russia — with a wink and nod to current affairs,” a spokesperson for Diageo, the spirits giant that owns Smirnoff, said.

Ivanka Trump gets roasted on Twitter – If the “level of viciousness” against her father surprised Ivanka Trump, then I would love to hear what she thinks of the rash of Twitter responses she got Monday.
When the Prez’s daughter tweeted about how surprised she was at the “level of viciousness,” against her father, the Twittersphere upped their game and showed her what “viciousness” really means.
If Ivanka was expecting Trump’s presidency to be greeted with flowers and rainbows, then she has either lived under a rock for the last 10 years or just underestimated the ruthlessness of people in America.
John Podhoretz, a New York Post columnist, put the word “viciousness” in perspective for poor Ivanka.
Her father said Ben Carson was a psychopath and Ted Cruz’s father killed JFK and she wasn’t expecting viciousness. She’s a filthy liar. https://t.co/8srNXVNTyA

Anchor of BBC World News America, Katty Kay, wondered if Ivanka ever learned the third grade lesson on context clues.
At the Republican National Convention people dressed in orange jump suits shouted “lock her up.” That should have
given Ivanka a heads up. https://t.co/tYoOxeg4ua

Congressman Ted Lieu wasn’t buying the innocence card.
Dear Ivanka: Your father’s Muslim Ban is pretty damn vicious. As is Eric Trump saying Dems are not people. So please stop your hypocrisy. https://t.co/50ue1exdNN

Now that’s viciousness for you, Ivanka.
