Christmas Music: Idina Menzel "Do You Hear What I Hear?"

From Idina Menzel's holiday CD, Christmas Wishes.

I'm a huge fan of Idina's talent. AND I'm happy to report, having met her briefly on a couple of occasions, she's just as charming and beautiful in real life as you would want her to be.

I love the Christmas CD. You may recall her duet with Michael Buble, "Baby It's Cold Outside," found it's way to #1 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.

Bravo, Idina!

Quote Of The Day: Steve Bannon "Looks Like A Drunk That Wandered Onto The Political Stage"

Republican Rep. Peter King speaking to CNN’s New Day regarding former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon's responsibility for last night's stunning GOP loss in Alabama by U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore:

“It’s not a political issue but a moral issue… this guy does not belong on the national stage. He looks like a drunk that wandered on to the national stage.”

Omarosa Out At The White House

Omarosa Manigault Newman, who entered the Donald Trump orbit as a villainess on his reality TV show, The Apprentice, has apparently resigned her position in the Trump administration.

The White House issued this statement:

“Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities. Her departure will not be effective until January 20, 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service.”

Omarosa held the title of director of communications for the Office of the Public Liaison.

During her time with Team Trump, she reportedly showed up unannounced with a 39-member wedding party, wandering around the grounds of the White House taking pictures. Shortly after that episode, she was banned from posting White House photos.

And then, of course, right after Trump's election she indicated that Trump had an "enemies list," telling the Independent Journal Review, “it’s so great our enemies are making themselves clear so that when we get into the White House, we know where we stand.”

Alabama: Democrat Doug Jones Defeats Alleged Child Molester

Roy Moore Campaign: You Can't Serve In Congress As Muslim Because You Have To Be Sworn In With A Bible



You've got to check out Roy Moore campaign spokesman Ted Crockett, who was left speechless when CNN’s Jake Tapper asked him about Alabama Republican Roy Moore’s claim that Muslims cannot serve in Congress because the oath of office requires swearing on a bible.

Jake Tapper: “You don’t actually have to swear on a Christian bible. You can swear on anything, really. The law is not that you do have to swear on a Christian bible. That is not the law. You don’t know that?”

Crockett: (pause, pause, pause....) “I know that Donald Trump did it when we made him president.”

Tapper: “Because he’s Christian and he picked it. That’s what he wanted to swear in on.”

Umm - freedom of religion? First Amendment?

Watch below.

And then there's his response when asked if Roy Moore believes if homosexual conduct should be illegal. Watch below.

Congrats, Alabama! Here's your team. This is classic 'crash and burn' stuff.
