Creator of Marvel’s ‘Thanos’ compares Trump to ‘teenage girl’ after president tweets viral meme

Westlake Legal Group Starlin-Trump-Getty-AP Creator of Marvel's 'Thanos' compares Trump to 'teenage girl' after president tweets viral meme Sam Dorman fox-news/topic/marvel fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc ccdba8a7-9d1a-5776-8a0e-32854150d3e8 article

Artist James Starlin criticized President Trump Friday after his campaign published a meme of Trump’s head on the body of Thanos, a Marvel Comics villain created by Starlin.

Starlin said that he was “shocked” and “saddened” by the meme, and added that he was “sad” for his country.

“I am old enough where I remember our presidents — when they spoke to the public — they did so to encourage, to inspire, to lead, not to complain like some teenage girl who’s had a bad day. And that’s what I see so much going on with this particular administration,” Starlin told CNN.

In the recent “Avengers” movies, Thanos is a supervillain who kills half the universe’s population by merely snapping his fingers.

THANOS CREATOR SAYS HE FEELS ‘VIOLATED’ AFTER TRUMP CAMPAIGN RELEASES ‘AVENGERS’ AD: ‘THESE ARE SAD AND STRANGE TIMES’

Trump’s campaign previously tweeted a video of Thanos with Trump’s face. The video showed Thanos snapping his fingers and saying “I am inevitable.” The video cuts to another clip in which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other Democrats disintegrate like some of the characters in “Avengers: Infinity War.”

“House Democrats can push their sham impeachment all they want. President Trump’s re-election is inevitable,” the tweet read.

During Starlin’s CNN interview, anchor Brooke Baldwin asked him whether he could request the video be “taken down.”

“No, the First Amendment protects it under satire if nothing else,” Sarlin responded, adding. “I feel that the only thing I can do is sit there and speak out about it.”

Starlin previously said he felt “violated” by the meme but backed away from that term during his conversation with Baldwin. “I probably shouldn’t use that term because it has so much connected to the #MeToo Movement.”

Varney: So far, December is a month for Trump to remember and Democrats to forget

“We’re not even halfway through the month, but already this has been a December to remember,” said Fox Business host Stuart Varney on the latest edition of Fox Nation’s “My Take.”

“The month began with a stunning jobs report. It confirmed that America has the best-performing economy in the world. That’s quite a statement. But with massive job creation, sharply-rising wages and historically low unemployment, the statement is justified,” Varney said as he ticked off some of the biggest news events of the past few weeks.

The U.S. economy added 266,000 jobs in November and the unemployment rate stayed steady at 3.5 percent, according to the Labor Department. The numbers blew away estimates that the U.S. economy would add roughly 180,000 jobs last month.

“Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi called the president a king and vowed to bring him down,” Varney continued. “Yes, impeachment is a blockbuster event, but I get the feeling it’s turning into a bust. It’s totally partisan. The Democrats are split and scared stiff that they’ll frighten away moderate voters. For the Democrats, December may turn out to be the month they would rather forget.”

The House Judiciary Committee voted Friday along party-lines to send two articles of impeachment to the full House, for an expected vote next week. Democratic House leaders reportedly expect to lose as many as a half-dozen votes from moderate Democrats representing swing districts or those that backed President Trump in 2016.

Looking overseas, Varney argued that the landslide victory of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s party over the left-wing Labour party in Parliamentary elections was another good sign for Trump. The Tories won their biggest majority in the lower chamber of Parliament since the days of Margaret Thatcher and Labour turned in its worst showing since the 1930s.

“Another bombshell: Boris [Johnson]. He won big in the U.K. election,” Varney said. “He will take the Brits out of the European Union and he really will move toward a big trade deal with President Trump. That’s good for America.”

Trump sent his well-wishes on Friday to his U.K. counterpart and raised the prospect of a new trade agreement, tweeting: “Congratulations to Boris Johnson on his great WIN! Britain and the United States will now be free to strike a massive new Trade Deal after BREXIT. This deal has the potential to be far bigger and more lucrative than any deal that could be made with the E.U. Celebrate Boris!”

“Even better, he clobbered the socialists,” Varney added, in reference to Jeremy Corbyn’s party. Political analysts, such as Fox News Digital Politics Editor Chris Stirewalt, argued that American Democrats would be wise to recognize that the far-left proposals of the U.K’.s Labour Party proved to be unacceptable to moderate voters.

Varney also said December has been good for American pocketbooks, which is always a plus for a president running for reelection.

“The market has gone straight up. The value of American business up by a quarter trillion dollars. And that’s just from December 1st through December the 12th. That’s stunning,” he added.

Kentucky’s defeated Gov. Bevin pardoned 428 since election day, prompting harsh criticism: report

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6101511017001_6101510604001-vs Kentucky's defeated Gov. Bevin pardoned 428 since election day, prompting harsh criticism: report Morgan Phillips fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/kentucky fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/politics fnc article 3f8fc419-76ab-527f-a7fd-bfaae13dcce3

After conceding to Democrat Andy Beshear — but before giving up his governorship — Kentucky’s now-former Republican Gov. Matt Bevin pardoned 428 people between election day through the end of his term Monday, according to the Secretary of State’s Office, including some who committed violent offenses.

Bevin narrowly lost to Beshear in November, by about 5,000 votes. After calling for a recanvass, he conceded to the loss nearly a week later. Since that time, he’s issued 428 pardons, including to a man convicted of reckless homicide, a convicted child rapist, a man who murdered his parents at age 16, and a woman who threw her newborn in the trash after giving birth in a flea market outhouse.

Bevin wrote that the woman, Kathy Harless, had “paid enough for the death of her newborn son.”

In one case, a man was convicted of homicide and other crimes in a 2014 home invasion. Patrick Baker was pardoned after his family raised $21,500 at a political fundraiser last year to help repay debt from Bevin’s 2015 gubernatorial campaign, according to the Louisville Courier Journal.

In 2018, a photo was found of Bevin at the home of Baker’s brother and sister-in-law.

KENTUCKY REPUBLICAN GOV. MATT BEVIN CONCEDES TO DEM ANDY BESHEAR IN REELECTION BID 

Bevin has also pardoned Dayton Jones, a man who was convicted of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy at a party. The incident was captured on video and shared to social media; the boy suffered internal injuries as a result of the attack.

Governors often issue pardons as they leave office, but Bevin’s odd choices have infuriated some of the state’s attornies. Commonwealth’s attorney Jackie Steele — a Republican like Bevin — said it would be an “understatement to say I am aggrieved” by the pardons.

Steele said that in the Baker case, Bevin did not pardon Baker’s co-conspirators in the robbery and homicide. Steele said he believes Baker was pardoned because of the money his family had donated to Bevin.

Judge David Williams sentenced Baker in 2017. He told the Courier Journal that, in his 30 years of practice, “I’ve never seen a more compelling or complete case… The evidence was just overwhelming.”

“I’m a big believer in second chances,” Bevin told The Washington Post on Thursday. “I think this is a nation that was founded on the concept of redemption and second chances and new pages in life.”

He claimed on Twitter that “not a single person was released who had not already been scheduled for a specific release date or who was sentenced with the eligibility to be considered for early release.”

“The vast majority of those who were pardoned, have actually been out of prison for years and have fully paid their debt to society,” Bevin added.

KENTUCKY’S BESHEAR RESTORES VOTING RIGHTS TO OVER 100,000 CONVICTED FELONS DAYS AFTER INAUGURATION 

Lawyer Eddy Montgomery said the pardoned criminals’ victims received no warning of their release, and he rushed to inform families before they were blindsided.

Montgomery said he was particularly shocked to see Brett Whitaker pardoned — Whitaker was convicted of two counts of murder after killing a pastor and his wife while driving under the influence in 2011.

Another pardon was granted to Micah Schoettle, who was convicted last spring of raping a 9-year-old child and sentenced to 23 years in prison. Bevin wrote that Schoettle had been convicted of the crime “based only on testimony that was not supported by any physical evidence.”

The governor has full jurisdiction over pardons under Kentucky’s constitution, except in cases of treason against the state.

On Thursday, Beshear restored voting rights to 140,000 convicted non-violent felons, just days after being sworn into office.

The state used to allow non-violent offenders to vote after they’d served their sentence, but in 2015 Bevin reversed the order. Kentucky was just one of two states with lifetime disenfranchisement laws that barred convicted felons from voting, regardless of the crime.

Chris Stirewalt’s urgent warning for American Democrats after British liberals routed

Westlake Legal Group Chris-Stirewalt Chris Stirewalt's urgent warning for American Democrats after British liberals routed Matt London fox-news/world/world-regions/united-kingdom fox-news/topic/fox-nation-opinion fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/opinion fox-news/fox-nation fox news fnc/media fnc article 5f657784-61c0-5a67-8849-d0bd2c2fb1e1

Fox News Digital Politics Editor Chris Stirewalt said that Democrats “should take a lesson” from the landslide election victory of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party over the left-wing Labor Party of Jeremy Corbyn.

“This is analogous to the American Democratic Party,” Stirewalt said on Fox Nation’s “Halftime Report.”

“The British Labor Party is where some in the Democratic Party are trying to take it,” he said. “A very radical agenda, extremely radical, with a heavy emphasis on sort of cultural politics, intersectionality, the politics of race and the politics of grievance.”

Johnson’s Tories won 365 seats in Parliament’s lower chamber, with Labour picking up just 203. It hands the Conservatives their biggest majority since the days of Margaret Thatcher and marks the worst showing for Labour since the 1930s.

Stirewalt also said that Corbyn is not an attractive figure to many U.K. voters.

“Jeremy Corbyn, the Labor leader, himself a supporter of Hamas in his time, a real wreck, and something that couldn’t appeal to mainstream Britons. And they got routed because they simply weren’t acceptable,” he said of the party.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., appeared to throw her support behind Corbyn on Thursday ahead of the vote and shared a video promoting the Labour Party.

“This video is about the UK, but it might as well have been produced about the United States,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “The hoarding of wealth by the few is coming at the cost of peoples’ lives. The only way we change is with a massive surge of *new* voters at the polls. UK, Vote!”

“This is what people like Pete Buttigieg and Joe Biden and Michael Bloomberg are saying to American Democrats,” Stirewalt said. “‘Hey, look, you could go so far out on a limb that you render yourself unelectable.’ And then it doesn’t matter whether people like Donald Trump anymore, and then it doesn’t matter whether they think he’s honest or trustworthy… All that stuff doesn’t really matter if you render yourself unelectable.”

Additionally, Stirewalt described a scenario in which Democrats may alienate moderate voters on the same day that the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee voted along party lines to send articles of impeachment against President Trump to the full House of Representatives for a vote.

Thirty-one House Democrats are from districts that President Trump won in 2016. Their votes for or against impeachment will be watched closely, as the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls shows that Americans are split over whether Trump should be impeached and removed from office.

“Which members lose first?” Stirewalt hypothetically asked. “The ones in moderate districts. And you can get shrunk down to a point where your party’s base is so out there… so crazy […] that you can’t be appealing to the mainstream anymore.”

Peggy Grande: Democrats beware — British election is final nail in the coffin of the globalist experiment

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6115680330001_6115682195001-vs Peggy Grande: Democrats beware -- British election is final nail in the coffin of the globalist experiment Peggy Grande fox-news/world/world-regions/europe/brexit fox-news/world/world-regions/europe fox-news/topic/the-european-union fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/boris-johnson fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 33ca7354-1805-59c5-9790-dcc9ce594a7d

Imagine California being “too close to call” for Donald Trump vs. his Democratic opponent on election night in November of 2020. That, in essence, is what happened in the United Kingdom Thursday night with an enormous, and historic, win for Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party.

This movement of the political tectonic plates will surely cause a tsunami of reaction across the pond, here in the U.S., as well around the world.

Since the era of Margaret Thatcher the U.K hasn’t seen such a surge toward the Conservative Party and this is such a large win that it will hold for at least a generation to come.  And while Boris Johnson can claim victory, this win may almost be in spite of him, not because of him.

UK ELECTION: JOHNSON’S CONSERVATIVES PICK UP MASSIVE MAJORITY, WREAK HAVOC IN LABOUR HEARTLANDS

A controversial leader with both wide support and lots of criticism, Johnson happened to be in the right place at the right time when the tidal wave of public opinion ushered in a new era for the U.K. and turned the pages of history simultaneously forward – to finally Leave the European Union – and backward – in returning the United Kingdom to national sovereignty and independence.

Thursday was an historic day indeed as Prime Minister Johnson will continue to lead from 10 Downing and a new Parliament with a Conservative majority, will certainly march toward the January 31, 2020 Brexit date with new enthusiasm and strong consensus.

The people of the U.K. have surrendered their allegiance to both Westminster and to Brussels for far too long and have given more than they have received, and have lost more than they have gained. 

The voters have been sending a clear message incessantly since 2016 – they wanted to leave the E.U. – and it has fallen on deaf or closed ears. Even as predictions of the polls tightening and fear of a Johnson loss was being touted this past week, the dire wishes of those peddling that desired outcome could not make it come true. The headline in the Daily Mail Friday morning shouted “Rejoice” (and the liberal Daily Mirror was the opposite with a headline that declared “Nightmare Before Christmas.”)

Yet is there really anything surprising about wanting to control one’s own destiny? The people of the U.K. have surrendered their allegiance to both Westminster and to Brussels for far too long and have given more than they have received, and have lost more than they have gained.  What began in the 1970s as merely a common market trading agreement devolved into full surrender of borders and immigration and courts and trade and laws and even fishing waters.

Yet the 17.4M Brexit voters of 2016 haven’t forgotten their vote and haven’t changed their mind.  And in fact, have confirmed emphatically with a double exclamation point that their decision to Leave then still means Leave now.  Regardless of how the other side has tried to spin and control the narrative, the Leavers never wavered and never bought into the lies that were peddled 24/7/365 by the Remainers.

They never believed the insult that their vote was a mistake or looked back wishing they had voted to stay in the European Union.

They never believed the lie that the E.U. provided stability to the U.K., but rather knew that the U.K. was providing stability to the E.U.

They never believed the doom and gloom naysayers predicting economic catastrophe would come by leaving the E.U., but instead knew that economic calamity would occur by electing Jeremy Corbyn and his progressive policies of taxation and big government.

They never believed the lies predicting the U.S. had made a secret backroom deal to take over the U.K.’s NHS (National Health Service) or believed that there would be shortages of food or medicine by deciding to leave the E.U.

Hard-working, law-abiding, tax-paying individuals don’t like being told what to do or how they should live. 

They never believed that their future opportunities for trade and growth were tied to a small, declining population in Europe with fragile, failing leadership and crumbling economies, but rather looked to the U.S., to the Commonwealth nations and to the waiting world, knowing they would be welcomed back to trade and work together and align for good globally once out of the confines of E.U. oversight.

More from Opinion

And most importantly they never believed the lie that the vote to Leave was a vote AGAINST something, but proudly knew it was a vote FOR everything – sovereignty, independence, self-governance and a declaration to Europe and to the world that they are ready to Lead, not Follow.

This historic election is the final nail in the coffin of the globalist experiment. It has failed in dramatic and spectacular fashion and with the U.K.’s imminent exit now from the EU, there will likely be other countries lined up right behind them also plotting their plan of escape.

Overarching supranational bureaucracies don’t help individuals – they help themselves – and the U.K. voters were smart enough to see that and brave enough to reject it.

They have changed the trajectory of their nation’s history and those who prosper in Britain’s vibrant and independent future will thank them.

Just as we saw the 2016 Brexit vote as a precursor to the 2016 Trump victory, the progressive left here in the U.S. should take this as a warning shot across the bow.

Hard-working, law-abiding, tax-paying individuals don’t like being told what to do or how they should live.

They don’t like being dismissed as uninformed or too simple to understand the complexities of government.

They resent having their voices ignored and having words put in their mouths about what they think and believe. Their priorities are not always in alignment with the loudest voices who wield the most power and ultimately they will refuse to give in to intimidation but will quietly go to the polls and make their silent voices heard in the arena of equality – the ballot box.

Unless drastic changes occur here between now and November, the U.S. presidential vote of 2020 has now been foreshadowed by this vote. The left should be extremely worried. And the right should be watching with enthusiasm and optimism.

The megaphone of the powerful has been proclaiming the Lies of Leaving since 2016, using the sword of fear to divide those who supported it.  But rather than dividing support, instead, they have increased support by overplaying their hand.

Yet democracy cannot – and should not – be dismissed by those who think they know better than the electorate. The people should ultimately tell their government what to do, not the other way around.

In the U.K. we saw a “Leave” county go toe to toe with a “Remain” parliament – and win.

Here in the U.S. we see coastal elites, the media and even members of Congress in opposition to much of the rest of America – an American electorate which I believe will go overwhelmingly to the ballot box and make their distaste for what is happening in Washington known.

Will pundits once again offer that a Trump victory is 2020 is “shocking,” “stunning,” and “unexpected”? Perhaps we will even see another historic victory next November.

Yet those who are following what the Brexit voters of 2016 and 2019 have done will not be the least bit surprised at the outcome.

Christina Anstead says 3-month-old son Hudson London has been her ‘hardest’ baby: It’s ‘been very difficult’

Westlake Legal Group christina-anstead Christina Anstead says 3-month-old son Hudson London has been her ‘hardest’ baby: It’s ‘been very difficult’ Julius Young fox-news/person/christina-el-moussa fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 5bbadb47-85be-5960-8d80-f920a9326586

Christina Anstead has been going through some rough patches with her and Ant Anstead’s son, Hudson London, whom she revealed has “definitely been [the] hardest” of her three children.

The “Christina on the Coast” star gave an interview with Us Weekly while doing press for the second season of her solo HGTV show.

“He still really just likes being in the house,” Anstead told the outlet on Thursday. “He doesn’t like going out. As a very busy family, that’s been very difficult. But since he hit the 3-month mark, he’s been doing a lot better. A lot more smiles and coos and sleeping better, so I think we’re on the right track.”

‘FLIP OR FLOP’ STAR CHRISTINA ANSTEAD ON BED REST FOLLOWING BIRTH OF SON

Christina also said the pair’s son, whom they welcomed in September, is “only waking up on time throughout the night.” The 36-year-old reality star also co-parents her daughter, 9-year-old Taylor, and son Brayden, 3, whom she shares with ex-husband and business partner Tarek El Moussa, 38. Anstead said the parenting arrangement has been a breeze so far.

“It’s definitely gotten a lot easier,” Christina told the magazine. “The kids love seeing us sit together and that’s what’s important. Me and Tarek work together still, obviously, so it’s not like we don’t see each other. And I’m still really close with his family, as well.”

ANT ANSTEAD ON CHRISTINA’S BLENDED FAMILY: ‘NOBODY GIVES YOU A MANUAL’

Anstead and El Moussa will have a new set of episodes to film for their uber-popular house-flipping series on HGTV, “Flip or Flop,” after the network announced Thursday that they would be renewing the former couple’s show for season nine, slated to come August 2020.

In a statement, HGTV President Jane Latman said: “Christina and Tarek’s relatable, personal journey attracts millions of viewers who now have a true emotional stake in their story and want to see more. Their story is real, compelling and filled with the hallmarks of HGTV hits — family and unforgettable personalities with home-related expertise who are passionate about the work that turns houses into homes.”

Anstead and El Moussa finalized their divorce in January 2018. Meanwhile, El Moussa has been dating luxury real estate agent Heather Rae Young, who is also featured on the Netflix series “Selling Sunset.”

It’s only been a week since “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi announced her retirement from the popular reality series – signaling the end of an era.

Polizzi recently went on the “Mel Robbins Show” and explained the exact moment that she knew she would be stepping away from reality TV.

“I think when I was, like, actually forcing myself to be in a situation that I wasn’t happy in,” the 32-year-old said when asked about her decision to hang up her “Jersey Shore” shoes. “Like, I was forcing myself to be ‘happy’ and I’m like that’s not me. I’m not genuinely happy. That’s when I’m like. ‘I’m out!'”

Regardless of her reasons, the reality standout said coming to the decision was more difficult than she thought it would be once the moment finally reared its head.

“It was really hard,” she said of closing that chapter of her life. “But I had to think about my happiness and where I really wanted myself to be and it’s being a mom and being [with my] kids and not drama and drinking and drama.”

Polizzi revealed on the Dec. 6 episode of her podcast “It’s Happening with Snooki & Joey” that she would be leaving the long-running MTV show, which premiered in 2009.

“I love you so much, and don’t hate me for my decision,” she said. “I am retiring from ‘Jersey Shore.’ I am not coming back to ‘Jersey Shore’ for season 4 if there is one.

“The main reason is really… I just can’t do it anymore. Literally, leaving my kids to film it is really, really hard on me,” Polizzi confessed. “I try and quit every single day. I quit every time we film because I just hate being away from the kids.”

She explained that at this stage in her life, the show doesn’t fit her purpose – which for Polizzi, is her young family.

“I don’t like partying three days in a row. It’s just not my life anymore,” she explained. “I want to be home with the kids. I don’t mind here and there going to a dinner or whatever, but it’s just really hard for me to leave the kids and film the show.”

Additionally, Polizzi explained that she was unhappy with the direction the show was moving in, though she left the door open for a potential sighting down the line.

“I’m not saying goodbye…I just need to move on from the show because I don’t like the direction it’s going in when it comes to the drama and the cattiness,” she added.

Democratic debate once again in peril as candidates threaten to boycott over union dispute

Westlake Legal Group 14_AP19289011810975 Democratic debate once again in peril as candidates threaten to boycott over union dispute Marisa Schultz fox-news/politics/elections/presidential-debate fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/person/pete-buttigieg fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/person/andrew-yang fox-news/person/amy-klobuchar fox news fnc/politics fnc article 5d805182-e29e-5dc7-97a8-4880f24b7237

Next week’s Democratic debate is now in jeopardy after all seven candidates slated to participate said they will refuse to take the stage over a labor strike at the proposed venue — chaos that comes after the location was already moved once.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, entrepreneur Andrew Yang, former Vice President Joe Biden, environmentalist Tom Steyer, South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar all announced in rapid succession Friday afternoon their plans to sit out the Thursday debate at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) if the college’s food service workers are picketing.

TRUMP SLAMS PELOSI, SAYS DEMS USING IMPEACHMENT FOR ‘POLITICAL GAIN’ AFTER JUDICIARY VOTE

“I stand with them,” Warren tweeted Friday. “The DNC [Democratic National Committee] should find a solution that lives up to our party’s commitment to fight for working people. I will not cross the union’s picket line even if it means missing the debate.”

Sanders immediately followed with his own tweet in support of the workers of Unite Here Local 11, a labor union representing the hospitality and food service workers at the university.

A Sanders campaign spokesperson told Fox News that if the labor dispute isn’t resolved and there isn’t an alternative venue, Sanders will skip the Los Angeles debate, which will be co-hosted by PBS NewsHour and Politico.

“He’s not going to cross the picket line. Simple as that,” the campaign spokesperson said.

The Democratic National Committee did not immediately have a comment.

The debate was initially scheduled to be held at the University of California, Los Angeles, but the DNC canceled the location on Nov. 6 over ongoing labor disputes between the university and AFSCME Local 3299. LMU was picked as the alternative site.

Local 11 announced Friday it would protest the debate’s second site because contract negotiations have stalled between the union and Sodexo, which runs food operations for students and employees at LMU’s campus. About 150 dishwashers, cashiers, cooks and servers are affected by the union dispute.

“We had hoped that workers would have a contract with wages and affordable health insurance before the debate next week. Instead, workers will be picketing when the candidates come to campus,” Susan Minato, the co-president of UNITE HERE Local 11, said in a statement.

JUDICIARY COMMITTEE APPROVES ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST TRUMP, AS GOP SLAMS ‘KANGAROO COURT’

A union rep told Fox News the foodservice employees had been working without a contract for several weeks and had already held several pickets in an attempt to force school leaders to provide them with better wages, benefits and working conditions.

The employees were planning to work as normal on debate day, but didn’t rule out the possibility of work stoppage, the union spokesperson said.

A source familiar with the matter said the DNC and LMU were not made aware of the issue until after the union sent a letter to the candidates Friday about their picket. Officials at the DNC were looking into the matter on Friday.

A Sodexo spokesperson told Fox News they are searching for a solution.

“Sodexo is 100 percent committed to reaching an agreement, and any statement that we have left the bargaining table is not accurate,” the spokesperson said. “We have been negotiating in good faith with the Unite Here Local 11 since December of last year with a goal to reach a new collective bargaining agreement that is equitable for everyone, including our employees, and we still intend to achieve such an agreement.”

It’s unclear whether the DNC could move the debate location again in such short notice with the avalanche of candidates threatening to bow out.

“We must live our values and there is nothing more core to the Democratic Party than the fight for the working people,” Yang tweeted.

“We’ve got to stand together with @UniteHere11 for affordable health care and fair wages,” Biden said. “A job is about more than just a paycheck. It’s about dignity.”

Steyer tweeted: “I support @UNITEHERE11. If their dispute with @sodexoUSA is not resolved before the debate, I will not cross the picket line. I trust the DNC will find a solution ahead of the debate, and I stand with @LoyolaMarymount workers in their fight for fair wages and benefits.”

“I stand in solidarity with the workers of @UNITEHERE11 at Loyola Marymount University and I will not cross their picket line,” Buttigieg said.

“As I said at my event with labor leaders here in Miami, I will not cross the picket line and I will stand with @UniteHere11 to fight for the dignity of work,” Klobuchar tweeted.

Moschino debuts giant backpack, gets mocked on Twitter

The fashion pendulum has swung far, far away from the micro bags of 2019.

Though the massive bag was just one of the large accessories in the show, which featured mostly oversized items – including giant fanny backs, purses and, at one point, a lighter – it was the one that most struck a chord on Twitter, which has since tirelessly mocked the look.

A (laughably) large Moschino backpack made its “subway catwalk” debut Dec. 9, during the fashion house’s Prefall 2020 runway show.

Though the massive bag was just one of many large accessories featured in the show — which was comprised of mostly oversized items, including giant fanny packs, purses, and, at one point, a lighter — it was the one that most struck a chord on Twitter, which has since tirelessly mocked the look.

The colossal backpack is just part of the runway, however, so those on the subway likely won’t be encountering life-size bags anytime soon — which Twitter will likely be pleased to hear.

However, for those that actually wanted such a bag, a Japanese brand called CWF really did debut a ridiculously oversized backpack back in January.

The retail price of that bag, known as the Backpacker’s Closet, was over 25,000 yen, or around $240.
