Social media has anointed an unlikely new sex symbol in the form of Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey. Frey, 38, a Democrat who became the city's mayor in 2018, has become the focus of a social media frenzy in the last week, with dozens of users praising his 'hot' looks - and even professing their 'love' for the official. The Twitter sensation comes amid a devastating time for the city of Minneapolis, which has been torn apart by riots over the tragic death of black resident George Floyd, who lost consciousness when white cop Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for

We have fallen long and hard from the days when John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Lee Marvin, and Charlton Heston were considered to be hot men.

I think some women are attracted to metrosexual males because of the man's "sensitive" nature. I think it's also because they're perceived as easy to control / dominate. Real women quickly tire of such pretenders.

That's funny. I have a brother who lives in central British Columbia and he laments that Justin is much despised out in Canadian flyover country and is seen as the fraud he is. Unfortunately the very liberal millennial crowd in Ontario makes it possible for such imbeciles to acquire political power. Not being reported here in the states is that Canada remains in a very ugly economic crisis. Yes, Canada, elections have consequences. But, electing another Trudeau after what his old man, Pierre, did to the country in the 1980s, really now? "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

What a dolt..... like the "protesters" need to be told to wear masks. I do agree with the social distance requirement though. They should all social distance themselves back to their own homes. And as for this vapid, vacant looking mayor being sexy there are no words. I guess if one prefers men to be of the extremely metrosexual type..... In some of those photos he looks drugged to me.

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets across the country to protest the death of George Floyd, a black man who died on May 25 in Minneapolis after a white police officer pressed a knee into his neck. Many demonstrations have started off peaceful but turned violent, leading to nearly 1,700 arrests in 17 U.S. cities and sparking heated debates among partisan pundits, who blame the other side for the chaos.

In politics your friends are more trouble than your enemies. Joe Biden is experiencing this phenomenon right now. Even though Democratic voters and interests detest President Trump to an unprecedented degree, the squabbling factions of their coalition continue to impose demands on Biden and parse every word, making sure he doesn’t violate ideological norms and sensibilities — potentially costing him the presidency. America’s two-party system forces candidates for president to cobble together a big coalition of interests and demographics that sit uncomfortably under a big tent. The result is competing demands and constant jockeying for influence. These interests often lose

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK - U.S. President Donald Trump is trusted more than Democratic nominee Joe Biden to handle the economy, polls show, even with more than 40 million Americans filing jobless claims and growth stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Some Biden supporters fear that vulnerability could intensify if Trump becomes the face of an economic recovery as the country re-opens after shutdowns, giving the Republican president's re-election prospects a boost when he needs it most. Biden is expected to release a large-scale recovery plan in the coming weeks. Democrats are watching closely to see if his message matches the moment

Within hours, the Justice Department had also announced it was investigating Floyd's death and was looking into charges for possible federal civil rights violations. Both developments occurred unusually quickly for a case involving an on-duty police officer, legal experts told Insider on Friday.

The killing by police of an unarmed black man in Minneapolis has aimed the national spotlight at systemic racism in America. It’s also added pressure on Joe Biden to pick an African-American running mate. George Floyd’s death after a police officer put his knee to Floyd’s neck while pinning him to the ground closely followed the killing of another black man, 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery, who was fatally shot while jogging in Georgia after a confrontation with two white men. Both incidents broke through the coronavirus pandemic to make headlines and capture national attention, while underscoring a growing sense that there

Democratic and Republican officials on Sunday took aim at groups like Antifa and Boogaloo as well as demonstrators from out of town as responsible for violent episodes at protests in major cities across the country. President Donald Trump tweeted that he was designating Antifa as a terrorist organization. That followed Trump and Attorney General William Barr earlier pointing to anti-fascist organizers and anarchists as culprits behind the mayhem following the death of a 46-year-old black man, George Floyd, at the hands of Minneapolis police. Others said right-wing extremists such as Boogaloo followers, who hope to bring about a second Civil War, were pushing for such uprising in the protests.
