In the aftermath of the Iranian missile attack against two U.S. bases in Iraq Tuesday evening, it appeared as though there were no U.S. casualties (as of this post's publication) and both President Trump and Iranian officials were ready to deescalate the situation. But CNN was not having it.During an appearance on CNN Tonight, chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta insisted that Trump was backed into a corner, and could do nothing but push the United States closer to a major conflict with Iran. He even suggested Trump was gambling with the lives of U.S. troops.After getting teed up by host Don Lemon, Acosta chided

Acosta and Lemon were using each other as sources. It sounds like the beginning of a dirty joke involving a gay and a midget.

Little Jimmy is still upset that the cameras were turned off. This narcissist has no clue how moronic he sounds. He’s been reduced to shouting at the President during chopper pressers! Lastly, has he gained weight? His face looks puffy.

Let's see, CNN viewership as of Oct 2019 was about 774,000 a day, obviously not all related to Acosta. Meanwhile 63 MILLION voted for Trump. Acosta has 1% (probably much less) of the support Trump has. We care about Jimmy says WHY? The proper response should be "Jimmy who?".

Just watched Jennifer Griffin’s report, an update on what happened. The missile attack was largely ceremonial, calculated to hit Iranian TV as Soleimani was lowered into his grave. Our people had advance notice, due to interception of “chatter” from Iran, and so there were no casualties. Experts are saying that the Iranians could have hit other targets that would have resulted in more damage. But they didn’t. This was to be a one-off response to Soleimani’s death that would not cause retaliation from the U.S. Our President is very, very good at games like these...

MPs have finally given their formal backing to Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal after more than three years of bitter parliamentary wrangling over the UK’s departure from the European Union. The historic EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill cleared the Commons this afternoon - despite Labour opposition - as MPs gave the draft legislation its third reading by 330 votes to 231, a majority of 99. It is the final major Commons hurdle which the so-called WAB had to navigate and it will now head to the House of Lords next week for further scrutiny before the UK leaves the EU on January 31.

Trump plans to exempt privately funded projects from undergoing environmental reviews, a significant change that would make building mines and pipelines much easier, The Washington Post reported. Energy producers are cheering the move.The changes will narrow the scope of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), a 50-year-old law requiring agencies to assess the impact a big project could cause to the environment.

How’s this for quitting your job: Abandon every aspect you hate, while continuing to reap all the benefits you love. This, in effect, is what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have done. In a statement loaded with confusing double-speak, the couple wrote, in part, “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the royal family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.” None other than Queen Elizabeth is confused. According to BBC royal correspondent Jonny Dymond, the statement blindsided the entire royal family, and they don’t know what this means either.

The new signs will reportedly read, “When they will completely disappear depends on how and when we act. One thing is consistent: the glaciers in the park are shrinking.” The US Geological Survey informed the park in 2017 that the glaciers were no longer expected to melt
