A lawyer for Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, has threatened legal action against The Lincoln Project over New York City billboards erected in Times Square that depict the pair as showing “indifference” toward the devastating toll of the COVID- 19 pandemic.

According to ABC News, Ivanka Trump is prominently featured smiling in her billboard, gesturing her hands to show the number of New Yorkers and Americans who have died so far from COVID-19. In an adjacent ad, a businesslike Kushner is pictured with his arms folded, along with the quote attributed to him “[New Yorkers] are going to suffer, and that’s their problem.”

The couple’s lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, called the ads “false, malicious and defamatory” in a cease-and-desist letter sent to the Lincoln Project, which they posted on Twitter yesterday.

“Of course, Mr. Kushner never made any such statement, Ms. Trump never made any such gesture, and the Lincoln Project’s representations that they did are an outrageous and shameful libel,” the letter from Kasowitz said. “If these billboard ads are not immediately removed, we will sue you for what will doubtless be enormous compensatory and punitive damages.”

Trump’s image in the billboard was actually taken from a July photo of her, in which she held up a can of Goya products to show support for the brand after many called for a boycott. Kushner’s quote was taken from an article in the September issue of Vanity Fair in which Trump’s son in law criticized NY Gov Andrew Cuomo, accusing him of not doing enough to get PPE for New Yorkers in need. Kushner allegedly said, “His people are going to suffer, and that’s their problem.”

An hour after sharing the letter from Trump’s lawyer, the Lincoln Project responded, stating that the “billboards will stay up” and called the White House advisers “entitled, out-of-touch bullies.”

“The level of indignant outrage Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have shown towards The Lincoln Project for exposing their indifference for the more than 223,000 people who have lost their lives due to their reckless mismanagement of COVID-19 is comical,” the group said in their statement.

Open Post: Michelle Obama praises Zaya Wade’s courage and bravery

Michelle Obama took time out of her busy schedule to chat with male-to-female adolescent Zaya Wade.

The former First Lady told Zaya she was proud of the youngster who is ex-NBA star Dwyane Wade’s youngest born son, formerly Zion Wade.

The chat was awkward and both participants seemed at a loss for words at times.

What does a grown woman say to a 12-year-old child who is apparently on female hormones and puberty blockers?

“We’ve already heard so many great things about you,” Mrs. Obama said, as the youngster giggled.

Zaya skipped a class to chat with Mrs. Obama who was very appreciative.

“I am just so proud of you, being an amazing role model and embracing your truth right?” Obama said.

Democrats are gently steering more Black boys to try puberty blockers. Joe Biden’s assistant health secretary Dr. Rachel Levine previously expressed support for gender confirming surgery in teens.

Dr. Levine, who is openly transgender, said “street youth” should not receive puberty blockers, but proceed immediately to taking cross-sex hormones.

“You’re already doing this,” Mrs. Obama told Zaya, “so maybe this is for some other young people that are listening.”

Outrage: Space Jam’s Lola Bunny is decidedly less sexy in the sequel

Social media is in an uproar over the modernized, less sexy look of Space Jam 1 star Lola Bunny in the sequel, Space Jam: A New Legacy.

If you recall, the original Lola Bunny was a top heavy sexy siren who made male fans forget for a minute that she was an animated bunny rabbit.

But this is a new day, and liberals have taken over Hollywood. They have something to say about top heavy sexy sirens — even if they are just cartoon rabbits.

Fans are mortified over the desexualization of Lola Bunny 2.0 in the sequel. Gone are Lola’s sexy curves and her ample boobs are nonexistent. Instead of a crop top and short shorts, Lola is clad in the same genderless team uniform as the boys.

Social media reacted to the drastic change by pointing out that Lola Bunny now looks like a WNBA player — 80% of whom are male-identified lesbians.
 

L.A. Lakers star LeBron James makes his leading man debut in the new Space Jam: A New Legacy sequel to 1996’s Space Jam starring the g.o.a.t. Michael Jordan.

LeBron appears in the sequel alongside the Looney Tunes all-stars: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Taz and Lola Bunny.

But no one is talking about LeBron, because, apparently, a bunny rabbit is more interesting than he is.
 

LeBron is probably not happy that a bunny rabbit is taking all his shine in his first big screen debut.

No doubt someone on his team sat him down and gently explained that if no one was talking about Lola Bunny, there would be no buzz about the film at all.

Space Jam: A New Legacy director Malcolm D. Lee dismissed the criticism of new look Lola Bunny.

He tells Entertainment Weekly that he was caught off guard by the “very sexualized” look of the original Lola Bunny, and he thought her look should be updated for a more liberal audience.

“This is 2021. It’s important to reflect the authenticity of strong, capable female characters, a.k.a. the team’s best non-LeBron player.”

His explanation may be PC, but fans are exhausted by the liberal gymnastics.

One Twitter user wrote: “I don’t care that Lola Bunny is dressed less sexy in Space Jam 2 but I am unbelievably exhausted by the idea that the way you communicate that a female character is to be taken seriously is by removing her boobs.”

A fan of the original took the time to depict Lola Bunny 2.0 the way she should look in 2021.

The CDC Updated Its Zombie Apocalypse Preparedness Guide

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released a guide for how to survive a zombie apocalypse.

“Dawn of the Dead,” “Zombieland,” we’ve seen all the zombie classics on screen. But could it possibly happen in real life? The CDC seemingly thinks so. The 16th-century French astrologer Nostradamus predicted there would be a zombie apocalypse in 2021, and here we are in 2021, and the CDC is not going to slip up without letting you know how to be ready for it….if it does happen.

According to Yahoo! News, the CDC recently updated its Zombie Preparedness section on its website, which was initially created in 2011. While the CDC notes that it’s clearly a joke, it seems they aren’t taking any chances since we are still recovering from a sudden global pandemic that none of us knew how to prepare for.

“Wonder why zombies, zombie apocalypse, and zombie preparedness continue to live or walk dead on a CDC web site?” the landing page reads. “As it turns out, what first began as a tongue-in-cheek campaign to engage new audiences with preparedness messages has proven to be a very effective platform. We continue to reach and engage a wide variety of audiences on all hazards preparedness via ‘zombie preparedness.’”

For those wanted to know what to do, the CDC provides lesson plans for teachers on zombie preparedness equipped with a downloadable poster that reads, “Get a Kit. Make a Plan. Be Prepared.” The guide also instructs people to be well-stocked with food, water, and medical supplies to last at least 72 hours. It also says to make sure to have power sources, medical records, and an emergency supply of prescription drugs. The page states that if you get bit by a zombie, you’re a “goner” but that “you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane.”

John Sellick, a professor in the Jacobs School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo, says he thinks the guide isn’t a bad idea. “I think it’s great,” he said. “As we’ve seen with coronavirus, disaster preparedness is crucial.”
