Neera Tanden despises Susan Sarandan

Sheriff David Clarke says Joe Scarborough has ‘lost his mind’
For bookers: He’s also capable of blasting CNN’s Jim Acosta, Don Lemon and “the idiots at The View.”
Read Clarke’s “talking points” below:
“Scarborough is exhibit ‘A’ as to why more and more people do not believe or trust the media and are turning to other sources to get their news.
Scarborough has lost his mind.
His inflammatory rhetoric and outright hate for Donald Trump came through yesterday when he said that President Trump is a bigger danger and that his policies have done more harm than the 9-11 attackers. Really?
I am not one to demand an apology from him. We need to hang this insane babble from Scarborough around his neck and make him wear it for as long as we can. The American people have had it with this irresponsible commentary from Scarborough, Jim Acosta, Don Lemon, the idiots on The View et al. It’s actually having the reverse effect. It’s helping Trump, it’s helping we who support him.”
Journalist has positive experience at Canadian DMV
“I had to do something at the Canadian DMV yesterday. It was crowded but I was done in 10 minutes. The people working there could not have been nicer.
