American Flags on Laguna Beach Police Cars Spark Backlash

A Laguna Beach police patrol car appears in a photo tweeted by the agency on March 3, 2019.
A decision to affix an American flag graphic to the side of freshly painted Laguna Beach police cars is dividing residents who are alternately praising the image as patriotic or panning it as too aggressive.

After hearing the criticism and acknowledging that the image they approved didn’t quite match the final results, officials agreed to reconsider their February decision to paint the Laguna Beach Police Department’s fleet of 11 squad cars. The City Council will take up the issue again at its Tuesday meeting.

“People are screaming that the American flag on a police car is somehow or another … hurting people’s feelings who might be immigrants or visitors,” said Councilman Peter Blake. “People are actually ridiculous enough to bring up comments about our cop cars having American flags on them.”

Artist Carrie Woodburn went to the podium at the March 19 council meeting and said it was “shocking to see the boldness of the design” when the newly painted Ford Explorers rolled out.

Police Chief Placed on Leave After College Students Discovered He ‘Liked’ President Trump’s Tweets

A police chief was suspended after students discovered he liked President Trump’s tweets.


A Massachusetts police chief was placed on leave after college students found his Twitter account and discovered that he “liked” tweets made by President Donald J. Trump and the National Rifle Association.

Local media reports that Mount Holyoke and Smith College Police Chief Daniel Hect has been placed on administrative leave after college students complained about Hect’s social media activity.

While no specific posts were mentioned, the college students discovered that Hect had used the “like” feature to show support for tweets made by President Trump and the NRA. 22 News reported that students “were outraged to discover conservative tweets the chief had liked” on the platform.

Mount Holyoke’s President Sonya Stephens buckled to the leftist outrage of her students, and came to the decision to place him on administrative leave due to fears that the chief would be unable “to develop the level of trust required to engage in community policing.”

Clown Pepe, also known as Honk Honk, is a depiction of Pepe the Frog wearing a rainbow wig and red clown nose, which is often accompanied by jokes with corny or cringeworthy punchlines and the emojis ���� meant to represent the phrase "Clown World." In February 2019, racist and anti-Semitic variations of the character named "Honkler" began appearing on 4chan's /pol/ board. Additionally, the character is associated with the term "honk pill," which is often described as an absurdist alternative to black pill nihilism allowing a person to appreciate the humor in an absurd universe, interpreting existence as a cosmic joke.

Comedy 2019 edition:

“Late Night with Seth Meyers” will run for an additional half hour on Thursday to allow time for a deep dive into special counsel Robert Mueller‘s report. NBC announced Monday that the episode will be expanded from 60 minutes to 90 minutes “to give context to the redacted version of the Mueller report becoming public earlier in the day.”

Host Seth Meyers, a staunch critic of President Trump, will also interview South Bend, Ind., mayor and 2020 presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg (D) during the late-night program.

Bernie is a millionaire himself.


MARTHA: So would you be willing to pay 52% on the money that you made? You can volunteer, you can send it back.

BELLIGERENT OLD MAN: You can volunteer too…why don’t you give? You make more money than I do.

MARTHA: I didn’t suggest a wealth tax.

BRETT: And she’s not running for POTUS.
