Over budget and behind schedule, the controversial infrastructure project is running out of money; William La Jeunesse reports from Los Angeles.
MSNBC isn't even attempting to hide their complete and utter lack of control when it comes to anything anti-Trump.
The liberal hack said even produced a video attempting to mock the president for a border wall that is overwhelmingly backed by the American public, especially among legal immigrants who have come from Latin American countries.
MSNBC aired another Joe Scarborough single Monday morning, set it to footage of the Women’s March that occurred over the weekend, and effectively kicked off the week in the most awkward way possible.
“And speaking of volatile times and protest movements, we go to break with some of the powerful images from over the weekend as millions of Americans gathered in cities and streets across the nation for the 2018 Women’s March,” Mika said as she introduced the segment with Joe on the screen.
MSNBC then played Scarborough’s newest single, “Stand,” accompanied awkwardly by nostalgic video and photos of the weekend’s Women’s March.
The song is politically motivated, and in his own words, Scarborough said the inspiration for the song comes from “the Women’s March and dedicated to those who #Resist.”
Scarborough did not create a song for the March for Life, which occurred on Friday in Washington, D.C. and attracted thousands of pro-life men and women who marched from the mall to the Supreme court. The March for Life began in 1973 to protest the Roe v. Wade Supreme court case and has happened every year since.
The Women’s March began last year to protest the Trump administration, and this year it has morphed into a “power to the polls” movement. Ironically, even though the Women’s March supposedly stands for female empowerment amid the slew of other factional issues, Linda Sarsour, a figurehead of the Women’s March, was accused of ignoring alleged workplace sexual assault.
If nothing else, watching the Democrats tie themselves into knots over the potential government shutdown has been pretty entertaining. Dem shutdown messaging is so convoluted they're contradicting themselves in real-time:
Hoyer just now: "I believe we should stay here and do our work."
"What is your motion?"
Hoyer: I motion to adjourn.
You can't make this stuff up!
See, that’s what’s so great. You don’t have to make it up, because it’s real. Move over, Dianne Feinstein! Democrat Rep. Steny Hoyer is going for the gold in the Self-Contradictory Olympics:
That’s pretty much how it went, yeah:
Hoyer: “I believe we ought to stay here and do our work [pause for cheers and applause]. And I believe we ought to vote to do so. And therefore, I will vote no.”
“Does the gentleman have a motion?”
Hoyer: “I have a motion … And the motion is the House do now adjourn.”
Jennifer Shutt: “The is the floor chart the House is voting on. At question is whether or not it violates House rules and/or decorum.” -- Drew McCoy: “The Democrats are claiming quoting Chuck Schumer on the floor violates the rules of decorum in the House. That's… an interesting stance.” -- That violates House decorum? For what it’s worth, the House voted, and the whiners went down in flames. -- Jennifer Shutt: “House voted 224-173 that everything is fine. Rep. Byrne is back on the floor speaking next to the chart. Every time he starts speaking Dems begin yelling and booing.” -- Yelling and booing? What was that about decorum? -- Cristina Marcos @cimarcos: “The House voted that Byrne's poster was in order. Byrne is now trying to resume his speech. But Democrats keep booing him.”
This is the moment a man running to catch a train ran headfirst into a huge concrete pillar in front of jeering passengers.
Open-mouthed and sprinting as the train pulls away from the platform, in dramatic footage the Philadelphia Eagles fan looks unstoppable and completely oblivious to what's about to happen.
A split-second later the unnamed man, dressed in the team's green jersey, is seen bashing his head as he smashes into the pole front-on in dramatic footage.
People inside the train shout and laugh at what looks like an extremely painful accident.
Unfortunately for him, the journey continues without him.
Liberal comedian and failed Comedy Central host Larry Wilmore made several snide comments about conservatives as he not only cracked that former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was "murdered by a pillow," but he poked fun at the 13 children who were infamously held prisoner and abused by their parents as he likened them to Republicans held hostage by President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence as "that creepy white couple." He also suggested that those who opposed Martin Luther King Jr. and ultimately murdered him were of the same ilk as Fox News and Republicans as host Bill Maher wondered how they would treat Dr. King if he were alive today.
At about 10:18 p.m. ET, Maher accused Republicans -- also lumping in Wal-Mart -- of lying to bolster President Donald Trump, referring to it as a "vast right-wing conspiracy." Wilmore then jumped in with a tasteless joke: "It's fascinating, but he's like people are scared to leave, like Trump and Pence are those -- that creepy white couple and Republicans are those 13 kids or something, you know." Trying to preempt negative reaction, he then tried to claim: "I'm not making fun of them." A bit later, Wilmore complained that Democrats do not "play hardball" like Republicans, and made a joke about Scalia's death: "Well, remember, Mitch McConnell -- Judge Scalia was murdered by that pillow like a -- for a whole year, he was dead. Mitch McConnell held out for a whole year for Gorsuch, That's playing hardball."
This is not the first time former Justice Scalia's death has been exploited for laughs on the Real Time show, as host Maher joked about it on his show in February 2016 the week after Scalia's passing. Returning to Friday's show, Maher then brought up Martin Luther King Day and mocked Republicans for praising the slain civil rights leader: "Whenever this holiday happens, all of the Republicans, they talk in such glowing terms, Dr. King, and they're gonna march with him -- what would they be saying about him on Fox News if he was alive?" Wilmore tried to blame Fox News retroactively for King assassination as he responded with more vitriol: "We saw how they treated him when he was alive, which is why he's not alive right now."

CNN’s Jim Acosta resumed his role as White House punching bag on Friday when Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney shut him down during a briefing on the looming government shutdown.
Acosta asked, “How can it be the Schumer Shutdown when Republicans control the White House, the House and the Senate?”
Mulvaney smirked before firing back, “Come on, you know the answer to that as well as anybody. I laugh when people say that… you know as well as anybody that it takes 60 votes in the Senate… you know that?”
Acosta timidly acknowledged that he did, in fact, claim to know what Mulvaney was referring to before re-phrasing his question.
“The president asked Congress to come up with a solution for the Dreamers. Congress was in the room, members of Congress were in the room with the president last week, seemed to be a fairly productive meeting, and the whole process got blown up,” Acosta said. “It seems like the whole process was blown up by the president’s comment.”
Mulvaney tried to respond as Acosta spoke over him for a few seconds. The OMB director eventually stated that Democrats want Trump to be blamed for the shutdown.
“This is purely an attempt by the Senate Democrats, led by Mr. Schumer -- that’s why we call it the Schumer Shutdown -- in order to try and get a shutdown they think this president gets blamed for,” Mulvaney said.
Amid the current media frenzy surrounding President Donald Trump’s yearly physical and cognitive exam, a group of cocky reporters agreed to undergo the same mental test which the president aced. They undoubtedly expected to find that they could pass the text with ease, thereby proving that it was far too easy an exam to be giving the President of the United States. However, the smug reporters were no longer laughing when the results of their own tests came in.
It has been just one year since President Donald Trump was inaugurated, and already he has been perhaps the most effective president in United States history. Indeed, in just twelve short months, Trump has delivered on nearly every single promise he made to the American people on the campaign trail. He has all but defeated ISIS, he has passed sweeping tax cuts and slashed government regulations, and the economy is now booming.
With such a resounding record of success just one year in, liberals have been left with zero legitimate grounds on which to attack President Trump. They cannot say he doesn’t keep his word, they cannot say we are in a worse spot than we were when Barack Obama left office, and they cannot argue with the skyrocketing stock market or the falling unemployment numbers. Thus, they have taken to claiming that Trump is “mentally unfit” to lead the country.
With all of the talk surrounding Trump’s mental capacity, the media was waiting on pins and needles for the results of his cognitive test to come in.

Oscar winner Mo’Nique says she’s calling for a boycott of Netlix for gender bias and color bias. In a video posted to Instagram, the comedic actress says she was severely low balled by Netflix in an offer for a comedy special that would have paid Amy Schumer, Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock millions. But Mo’Nique says she was offered just $500,000.
Curiously she says in the video, What about her resume? But she never says, I won an Oscar. It’s so weird. She won Best Supporting Actress for “Precious.” But she never embraced the Oscars.
Recent headlines declared that the suspect police say is responsible for racially charged graffiti found at the University of Maryland has been arrested, but none of those reports indicated the race of the suspect.
The College Fix, after repeatedly calling and emailing the university for comment, finally received an answer Wednesday. The 18-year-old suspect, Terrell Demonte Alexander, is black, a public information officer with the University of Maryland Police Department confirmed via email.
Recent articles by The Washington Post, Associated Press, NBC, The Baltimore Sun and the Diamondback campus newspaper about the arrest did not include that information. The University of Maryland Police Department also had not included that information on its statement about the arrest.
The College Fix sent email inquiries about Alexander’s race to the Diamondback (including its editor-in-chief), the Sun’s Liz Bowie, and WaPo’s Lynh Bui. None responded.
Alexander has been charged by police with two misdemeanor counts of malicious destruction of property and two misdemeanor counts of damage to property of certain classes of persons or groups, police said in their statement. If found guilty, he can face as much as three years in jail and a fine of $5,000, the police stated.
The Jan. 10 arrest warrant stemmed from “racially charged writings” found on campus in late October and early November, according to the police statement.
“We take incidents of hate-bias in our community very seriously, which is reflected in the extensive effort to identify the individual responsible,” University Police Chief David Mitchell said in his statement, adding that officers nabbed the suspect using a forensic investigation of writing samples, security footage reviews, and witness interviews.
The Diamondback reports that Alexander is a former University of Maryland employee. This marks the second time in recent months that a black UMd employee has been accused of hate-crime hoaxes. Another black former employee, 52-year-old Ronald Alford, was arrested on a similar charge last fall.
Best known for his roles in movies such as "National Treasure" and "Leaving Las Vegas," Nicolas Cage was once a top earner in Hollywood, worth $150 million.
But Cage didn't hold on to his fortune for long. He squandered it away on a string of expensive and often eccentric purchases, eventually facing foreclosure on several properties and owing the IRS $6.3 million in property taxes.
Now worth around $25 million, Cage is taking roles left and right to help pay off his debts.
As chronicled in CNBC's "The Filthy Rich Guide," here's a glimpse at some of Cage's craziest purchases.

A man wearing a Guy Fawkes mask tried to blow up an ATM with a huge balloon, but left empty handed when the cashpoint withstood the blast.
CCTV showed the pair carrying a large pink balloon to a bank in the south-western Russian city of Ufa.
One uses a bank card, presumably stolen, to open the lobby door and the pair go inside with their balloon.
They rushed outside after a few seconds and duck away from the door.
Shortly afterwards the bank's lobby doors are blasted outwards by a huge explosion.
The thieves dash inside hoping to help themselves to handfuls of cash but emerge with nothing after a couple of seconds.
At least seven people who said they worked for a TV crew were arrested at Newark Liberty International Airport Thursday, after they allegedly tried to film themselves going through a security checkpoint with a fake explosive device.
The Transportation Security Administration said Port Authority police arrested the group after officers detected a suspicious item in a carry-on bag.
A preliminary investigation indicated that the defendants were all in collaboration and claimed to work for a television network, the TSA said. Some members of the group tried deliberately to carry through the security checkpoint a carry-on bag that with something inside that had “all the makings of an improvised explosive device,” the TSA said.
CBS News obtained photos of the device, which appeared to be composed of wires and portions of a vacuum cleaner.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo tried arguing the definition of “mansplaining” with Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel during a Wednesday “New Day” segment.
“Part of the fallout wound up being the Senate panel interviewing the Homeland Secretary Nielsen and her saying she doesn’t recall. She got into it with Cory Booker. You accused Booker of mansplaining to Nielsen, Sec. Nielsen, who is of course a woman. Why? Why did you call it that?” Cuomo asked.
McDaniel said she believed Democratic Sen. Cory Booker would have treated a man differently, and accused him of political grandstanding.

President Trump kicked CNN star Jim Acosta out of the Oval Office Tuesday after the network’s senior White House correspondent badgered him with racially charged questions.
Acosta has made a habit of grandstanding and interrupting when Trump and his surrogates are available to the media. Tuesday was no exception, as Acosta yelled, “Mr. President,” three times before finally getting Trump’s attention.
“Did you say that you want more people to come in from Norway? Did you say that you wanted more people from Norway? Is that true Mr. President?” Acosta frantically shouted.
“I want them to come in from everywhere… everywhere. Thank you very much everybody,” Trump responded as Acosta continued to bark questions.
“Just Caucasian or white countries, sir? Or do you want people to come in from other parts of the world… people of color,” Acosta shouted.
Trump then pointed directly at Acosta and simply said, “Out!”
Los Angeles city and county have the most chronically homeless people in the country, and nearly all of them sleep on the streets, according to figures released Thursday by the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Department.
L.A.'s chronically homeless population has grown 55%, to 12,536, since 2013, accounting for almost 15% of all people in that category, HUD reported. More than one-third of the nation's chronically homeless live in California, the agency added.

MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski expressed concern Wednesday over Donald Trump getting a clean cognitive bill of health, saying "the word evil comes to mind" to explain the president's behavior.
White House doctor Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson addressed the media on Tuesday about Trump's health, which he declared to be "excellent," and he also said he aced a cognitive test given at the president's request.
In the wake of the controversy over Trump's reported slur on African countries as "s—hole" nations, Brzezinski said she was worried.
"If he wasn't healthy, that would be a great excuse for this behavior. Now he has none, which you can then deduce other things that are far more nefarious and frightening," Brzezinski said.
Former Obama administration official Steve Rattner said he had a similar thought in that he wasn't sure if it would be better if Trump had mental issues.
"I'm disturbed that they say he's cognitively healthy," Brzezinski said. "I think the word evil comes to mind."
During a press briefing with White House physician Ronny Jackson on Tuesday, one member of the White House press corps asked if President Donald Trump was addicted to drugs.
Jackson, a Navy rear admiral, said Trump is in "excellent" health and spent about an hour fielding a wide range of questions about his medical exam. One reporter standing behind the back row of chairs inquired about Trump's possible drug use.
"You said he doesn't drink and he doesn't smoke and other than the diet issue—did you address drug addiction?" the reporter asked.
"Drug addiction?" Jackson replied with a laugh.
"Any other drugs?" she asked.
"Yeah, no, no, he has no drug addiction," Jackson said.
"How about sexual?" another reporter joked, prompting laughter.
Jackson also faced questions on whether Trump had dementia, OCD, diabetes, dentures, or heart problems. Jackson's answer to each of these was negative.
Jackson became the White House physician in 2006 in the George W. Bush administration, and he remained in that position with the administrations of Barack Obama and now Trump.
