Haley Wants Cognitive Tests for U.S. Leaders
November 4, 2021 at 5:47 pm EDT By Taegan Goddard 56 Comments

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the Christian Broadcasting Network that older government leaders should undergo a “cognitive test.”

Said Haley: “If you’re gonna have anyone above a certain age in a position of power — whether it’s the House, whether it’s the Senate, whether it’s vice president, whether it’s president — you should have some sort of cognitive test.”

She added: “Let’s face it, we’ve got a lot of people in leadership positions that are old. And that’s not being disrespectful. That’s a fact.”

Will she start with a certain former President? Inquiring minds want to know.

If You Live In Virginia, And Haven't Voted Yet, Please Do!!!

The polls are tightening, and if we can't get more turnout for McAuliffe, we will likely end up with Governor Youngkin, the T***p wannabe. Please don't let that happen!

TFG's Official Theme Song

Keep trolling, everyone. We'll get him there yet!

I Guess It Takes One To Know One

MTG says Joe Biden is a "Piece of Shit". I think she's like the dog doo I stepped in the other day and scraped off my shoes.

So, Is TFG Actually pResident Again Today?

It's Reinstatement Day, according to what the MyPillow dude was saying, but somehow I have missed it if he is.

Anyone? Bueller?

T'Storm Aftermath

So I'm in Northern Virginia (Arlington/Falls Church/Fairfax County Area) and the storms just rolled through...knocked out our power again. There are huge trees down all around our area, including one that's blocking our street.

I hope Dominion will be able to get the power back on relatively soon. Last time (week before last) it was out for almost 18 hours.

Anyone else in NOVA without power?

Edited to add: our power is still out, and the earliest Dominion is saying we might be restored is 7:00 tonight. They’re working on a lot of outages in our area, but it’s miserably hot and humid today. At least the basement is still relatively cool.

And They Didn't Even Get Killed!

Two women tried to pass a fake $1,000,000 bill in a Dollar General.

Excerpt: According to WREG Memphis, the incident occurred at a Dollar General store in Maryville, a suburb of Knoxville. The two women reportedly tried using the bill to pay for numerous gift cards, and, when confronted, they claimed they not to have known the bill was fraudulent.


An employee, however, easily identified $1 million as fake, according to UNILAD, because $1 million bills do not exist in U.S. currency. The employee reportedly called authorities around 10 a.m. to report the "suspicious incident."

Of the two women, 39-year-old Amanda McCormick is the suspect who appeared to originally be in possession of the fake bill. When officers questioned McCormick, she explained that she "received the one million dollar bill in the mail from a church." However, she "could not provide the church information."

Here We Go Again

Another day, another mass shooting.

Multiple people were shot late Thursday at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis, police said.
Just after 11 p.m., Indianapolis police officers responded to reports of shots fired at the facility at 8951 Mirabel Road, police said early on Friday.
As officers arrived, they came in contact with an active shooter, said Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Officer Genae Cook. The suspect then apparently killed himself, Cook said.

This Audio Clip of John Boehner Telling Ted Cruz to "Go Fuck" Himself Is Really Delightful

I couldn't agree more!

By Abigail Weinberg

It was reported earlier this year that, while recording his audiobook, former Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) occasionally randomly veered from the script to tell off Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). Specifically, he told Cruz, “Go fuck yourself.”

Now, Axios released the audio. It’s real, and it’s spectacular. Listen:

“Freedom,” Boehner says, “means you’re free to reach as high as you want no matter where you came from, even if you’re a little kid sweeping a bar out in southwest Ohio. Take it from me. You’ll never know where you’ll end up. That’s freedom. I’ll raise a glass to that any day. P.S. Ted Cruz, go fuck yourself.”
