Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., joined the legion of “Game of Thrones” fans disappointed by the show’s finale. “I’m sad,” said Ocasio-Cortez in a video of the two legislators posted to Warren’s Twitter account Tuesday. “Disappointed about it.” “I was just really… meh,” said Warren. The pair bemoaned the arcs of the female characters who seemed prime to rule at the end of the series. Instead, one “went crazy” and the other settled for ruling only part of the continent. The lawmakers were not alone in their distaste for the series’ treatment of its female characters

I've the writer of this series and he's not interested in women if you know what I mean. The series spent years developing characters, but this year was written as if they just wanted to end it. After viewing the first few episodes of the last season, I stopped watching. There were too many "Jumping the Shark" moments.

So, like, I think the congress person (is that still acceptable?) and Senatrix should join X chromosomic forces and do something about this outrageous affront to the Earth and her life forms. The writers should be killed of course and probably the producers too. No torture could be too cruel and unusual for the crime of disappointing the two officious blabbermouths AOC and Pocahonkey.

It's a fictional TV show. It's not real. Nobody ruled anything. Nobody really went crazy. Is it just me, or do lie-berals seem to live in a state of constant misery?!?!?!? Nothing, and I do mean nothing, makes them happy.

Just as we thought, they are silly, shallow women who are detached from reality. A chunk of Americans entrusted them with making laws for the country but they are not capable. These immature squaws spend time watching fiction instead of the world's real history.

Seeing how females like Pocahontas and AOC behave in Congress, I'd say the ending was about right. How can two congress critters get all bent out of shape over some stupid television show? They need to get a life and it shouldn't be any more time in Congress.

You would think she and all the females would be happy. After all Bran is sexless so in the end they get exactly what they want, a unisex leader. Besides they missed the point that Sansa becomes a Queen in her own right and Arya is the heroine who goes off to explore the world. But then I wonder if that means she brings death and disease to all those indigenous people left to be discovered. Something to think about.

They are upset that the female queen who was going to "save the world" went crazy and revealed herself to be a totalitarian (sound familiar, Democrats?). Perhaps this hit too close to home for the feminazis...

I quit watching GOT early on when I realized although it was an interesting premise, the idea was to get people hooked on the debauchery and violence. Maybe I am getting cantankerous in my old age but I refuse to fill my head with much of the garbage coming out of the entertainment industry. There is always an agenda and now they don’t even hide it. Most of the time it is an attempt to chip away at our moral values. The culture rot we see happening can be traced back primarily to the entertainment industry.

My daughter talked me into watching one episode with her. I got up and left the room after about 15 minutes. Who needs all that gore and gratuitous sex? Those two women just can’t seem to get over what is between their legs. Everything isn’t about male vs female or any other “gender”. It seems as if that is all they have. That and the race card.

#16 is spot on! In the end, the just, handsome, masculine man killed the Leninist nutcase woman and saved the realm from her radical ideas. And the north refused to be brought into the global order, confidently remaining an independent and self-reliant kingdom. I don’t think the writers intended that interpretation, but people still like the good guys to win. And that’s pretty much what happened. Everything is political.

Can we please start calling identity politics exactly what it is -- discrimination that the Left finds socially acceptable because it enhances their power. Can you imagine any white male speaking about women the way these hags speak about men and not be ostracized from any public organization? They may have the support of a large number of male cucks, but it's time to call it what it is -- un-American.

I never watched it, and happy that I didn't. Much like Dallas, never watched a single episode. Soap operas don't interest me much. The little I heard that it was bloody and too many unnecessary sex scenes. I am in favor of sex, and there are definitely times when blood needs to flow, but showing the details of each isn't necessary or really something I need to watch. I haven't missed a thing.

Louisville, Ky. — Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin cleared his first hurdle toward a second term, defeating three Republican challengers Tuesday. He will advance to a tougher fall campaign where his Democratic challenger, Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear will hope to defeat Bevin by using his high-profile feuding with public school teachers. While Bevin claimed the nomination in GOP-leaning Kentucky, an upstart challenger — state Rep. Robert Goforth — attracted a sizable share of the vote in a sign the incumbent has fence mending to do with his political base. Bevin got a last-minute boost from President Trump.

During Tuesday’s broadcast of The View, co-host Meghan McCain seemed a bit irritated and annoyed with her colleagues for not taking her viewpoints on politics seriously enough, insisting at one point that she comes to the show every day to give a “different perspective” even though it is an “unpopular one.” With the show hitting the air just moments after a House Judiciary Committee hearing adjourned following former White House counsel Don McGahn defying a congressional subpoena, the hosts jumped right into a debate over impeachment and whether the president attempted to obstruct justice.

The New York Democrat, who introduced the proposal to tackle climate change by radically transforming the economy, posted a series of Instagram videos filmed in her home state talking about community gardens as a “core component” of her proposal. “What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community.

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible

WASHINGTON — Some supporters of Donald Trump proudly tout their loyalty with “Make America Great Again” T-shirts and hats, taking delight in the irritation they may cause critics of the president. There’s even a thriving market for Trump tattoos, which take that provocation to an entirely new — not to mention permanent — level. But some who voted for Trump kept quiet about casting their vote for him in the 2016 election, fearing condemnation from friends, family and co-workers. A new study finds that “secret” Trump voters were twice as common as “secret” voters for Hillary Clinton. In fact, more than half of

The comments by Hickenlooper, who is running for the White House, come as Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden has focused his candidacy on a promise to “restore the soul of the nation” and “rebuild the backbone of the nation” in the wake of Trump’s presidency. “When you are rebuilding, never say you are going to rebuild what was there before,” Hickenlooper

New York City - Crossing the street here can be challenging any time, and you might be even less likely to notice that honking cab or zooming bicyclist if you're looking at your phone. Now, it could become illegal to do so. A bill in the New York State Senate seeks to ban pedestrians from using portable electronic devices while crossing the road. Fines would range from $25 to $250. The statewide ban would include texting, checking emails, and browsing the internet, with exceptions for emergencies.

If you've been to an event with a Democrat running for president this year, there's a good chance you've heard about it: the racial wealth gap. Candidates are regularly bringing up the fact that the typical black family has only one-tenth the assets of the typical white family — a divide that has grown larger than it was 35 years ago. Far from a niche concern, candidates have incorporated it into their signature proposals. They've addressed it in speeches not just to black churches in South Carolina, but also to mostly white town hall crowds in Iowa and New Hampshire. In

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion.

This happened despite the fact that most analysts expected it to lose a large number of seats; despite being (seemingly) out of step with the nation’s emerging consensus on climate change, marriage equality, religion, and race; despite a chaotic tenure in office that has seen three leaders since 2016; despite a threadbare

If there was a reason President Donald Trump chose the small Pennsylvania town of Montoursville to hold a campaign rally, no one in the media is saying what it is. In the absence of any answers, let me suggest one, admittedly more speculative than proven but a possibility nonetheless. In 1996, during the midst of Bill Clinton's desperate drive to become president, 16 French club members from the Montoursville high school and five of their chaperones died in the crash of TWA Flight 800 off the coast of Long Island. Although the phrase has been much abused, there is none better than "cover-up" to describe what followed.
