Montel Williams calls meh on Washington Examiner writer’s tweet   

(Note to readers: At least Scarry doesn’t push payday loans.)

EDDIE SCARRY: “Eugene Robinson, without a flicker of irony, said on MSNBC just now that Trump’s CPAC speech was “rambling.” Maybe, but it was only 2hrs. ‘Morning Joe’ is 3hrs but instead of rambling they just repeat the same thing: ‘Trump outrageous. Trump outrageous.'”

MONTEL WILLIAMS: “Eh I’m so so on this tweet – feels forced… No pizzaz…”

EDDIE SCARRY: “I crave your approval, Montel.”

‘Your boy was a pedophile’ 

“Michael Jackson [fans] please get a life. You are DMing and emailing a homosexual Iranian reporter who tweets about towels, elephants, and ADHD. You are not going to change my mind…your boy was a pedophile. Don’t even waste your time replying to tweets!” — Yashar Ali, HuffPost, New York Mag.

Also from Ali: “Think about it this way…. A thirty-five year old man asks you if your eight-year-old son can sleep in his bed and then he does…night after night. He also asks you if your eight-year-old son can live with him for a year without your presence. These are all facts.”
