Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, who died on the cross to pay for the sins of mankind.
Each year, millions across the world celebrate with presents and egg nog, family dinners and reflection on the true reason for the season. Others, meanwhile, get drunk and fire off handguns, brawl in the streets and dress up like St. Nicholas for day of debauchery.
Deputies in Summit County, Utah arrested 56-year-old Randal Weed Dickinson Sunday after his roommates allege he stumbled out of his room drunk and knocked over a Christmas tree.
“The homeowner and his son were in the kitchen of the home when Dickinson came out of his room and fell into the Christmas tree, knocking it over. The roommates then told him to go back into his room,” KTVX reports.
The former acting solicitor general under President Barack Obama claims that President Donald Trump’s “future looks like it’s behind bars.”
During a segment Monday morning on CNN’s “New Day” with host Alisyn Camerota, Neal Katyal claimed Trump is facing “strong criminal liability” over Michael Cohen’s alleged campaign finance violations.
His scathing comments, provided without any evidence of a crime or charges being brought against the president, came in response to Camerota asking about memos being filed in the Southern District of New York last week.
In the memos, Cohen, the president’s former attorney, admitted to lying to Congress and provided information about allegations that Trump may have been involved in the $130,000 that was paid to adult film star Stormy Daniels in Oct. 2016.
Daniels, who claims she had an affair with Trump over a decade ago, was reportedly paid as part of a nondisclosure agreement that she signed.
CNN’s Alisyn Camerota apparently thinks any Democrat considering a run for president in 2020 should check their race before making a final decision.
During a segment Monday morning on CNN’s “New Day,” Camerota asked Colorado Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper if 2020 is “the right time” for a “white guy” to run for president.
“You know the debate that the Democratic Party is having right now — is it time to have somebody of color and a woman and somebody younger?” Camerota asked. “Or somebody more establishment?”

Democrats are okay with foreign meddling in elections when they do it.
As France devolves into what some are saying could be a civil war in the streets of Paris, the French should recall who wanted them to elect Emmanuel Marcon in the first place: former U.S. president Barack Obama.
Fired FBI Director James Comey seemed smugly amused as he exited questioning by a House committee, but inside the room, he seemed awfully forgetful.
According to a tabulation of the times he couldn’t remember the answer to a question, Comey said “I don’t remember” 71 times, “I don’t know” 166 times and “I don’t recall” 8 times, for a staggering total of 245 non-answers on Friday.

New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is apparently triggered over memes.
On Friday, the 29-year-old socialist threatened Donald Trump Jr. over “trolling” her on social media.
Ocasio-Cortez responded to a tweet from The Washington Post, which featured a story about how Trump Jr. used a meme to troll her for supporting socialism.
“I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
“Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a ‘very, very large brain’ idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month. Have fun!” she added, which many clearly view as a threat.

This summer, Facebook deemed the Declaration of Independence “hate speech” before reversing course amid a heated public backlash.
It’s a scenario that’s become routine, and nearly always involves conservative posts or personalities.
Now, even Santa and Jesus are apparently too controversial. Facebook user Jennifer Beachm Crawford posted an image of St. Nick kneeling beside a baby Jesus in a manger, along with a poem about the real reason for the season.
But Facebook blurred out the image with a warning to viewers that the photo “may show violent or graphic content.”
“This photo was automatically covered so you can decide if you want to see it,” read the warning, which came with the option to uncover the image.
