OMG, There's A Bowling Green Massacre Victims Fund Now!

Kellyanne Conway

Instead of Donald Trump blaming "fake news" on everyone else, maybe he should take a look at his own damn team.

ICYMI, POTUS's verbal garbage disposal (AKA Kellyanne Conway) went on national television on Thursday to defend Drumpf's immigation ban by saying:

"I bet it's brand new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre. It didn't get covered."

You're right, Kellyanne… this IS brand new information because IT NEVER HAPPENED.

Yasss.

The description on the site HIGHlariously mocks Conway's latest embarrassment by saying:

Following the blonde's admission, the eccentric actor then revealed he would be directly donating to the two charities of his former flame's choice, Children's Hospital of LA and ACLU, and has already started to send checks their way.

However, Miz Heard does NOT approve of her ex's decision, and is now insisting that he pay double what he initially agreed, and here's why.

The actress' team says that the 53-year-old wouldn't actually be shelling out the full $7 million if he passed along the checks himself, because he'd be getting a charitable tax deduction!

Plus, the Justice League star maintains that the money is no longer the Kentucky native's to give away.

The 30-year-old's people told TMZ:

Melissa Etheridge has always been very vocal about her support for legalizing marijuana, and she’s at it again.

The breast cancer survivor penned an open letter after reading a report from the ACLU called The War on Marijuana in Black and White: Billions of Dollars Wasted on Racially Biased Arrests.

The report documents the lopsided numbers among different races in drug-related arrests.

The singer sums up what she took away from the report in her lengthy letter, which states:

ACLU Threatens Ohio High School With Lawsuit Over Anti-Gay Bullying

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersSad SadLGBT

Whatever it takes to put an end to such AWFUL behavior in schools!

Check out the video (above) about a high school freshman who was badly beaten up by another student because of his sexuality.

When the student and his mother contacted school officials, they refused to help, and now the ACLU has taken on the case.

We're glad to hear that the ACLU is supporting this student, but we seriously need anti-bullying laws to be instated in the United States and abroad to stop this once and for all!

As we've said many times before……. #makealawforjamey

Disgusting! Tennessee Principal Assaults Student For Wearing Pro-GSA T-Shirt!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayLegal MattersSad SadLGBT

This is absolutely horrific. And DISGUSTING.

How on Earth are we supposed to teach our youth to stop bullying if our school ADMINISTRATORS can't even do the same?!

Chris Sigler, a 17-year-old senior at Sequoyah High School in Tennessee, was apparently shoved and verbally harrassed by his own PRINCIPAL last week after he refused to take off a shirt that he had made promoting the establishment of a gay-straight alliance club on campus!

Principal Maurice Moser has apparently threatened to punish students attempting to circulating petitions about the club, and when Sigler wore a homemade T-shirt to school that read: GSA: We've Got Your Back, he was asked to take it off. The young man knew that he had a right to wear it, so he did on the following Friday, and this time refused to take it off.

Moser reportedly then

Olivia Wilde Gets Obama-esque Portrait

Megan Fox must be jealous!

Shepard Fairey, who painted the iconic Obama portrait for the 2008 election, created an image of Olivia Wilde to help out her ACLU campaign to give a voice to the underprivileged.

Said Olivia:

“I believe we have to judge our society not by how we treat the privileged and the empowered, but by how we treat the silenced, the condemned, the undocumented, and all those whose views and rights are deemed inconvenient. The ACLU works tirelessly to uphold the promise of the Constitution, and I am proud to support their courageous and necessary work.”

She’s an inspiration!

Now, if only Shepard Fairey would paint a portrait of Perez…
