Confirmed: Next Year’s Met Gala Theme to Mock Islam

From The Babylon Bee.

NEW YORK CITY, NY—Representatives for the Metropolitan Museum of Art confirmed Tuesday that after its annual gala’s theme successfully skewered Catholicism and Christianity this year, it would continue its edgy commentary on religion by asking attendees to wear sacrilegious outfits making a mockery of Islam next year.

 

Gala organizers wanted to ensure they were offending all religions equally, and not unfairly targeting Christian beliefs.

“Our theme for 2019 will be ‘Islamic Imagination,’ and we will encourage celebrities to dress up like the prophet Muhammad or one of his concubines,” a representative for the Met said in an interview Tuesday. “Mocking religion is uncharted territory for cultural influencers such as ourselves. And we’re going to continue our edgy take by absolutely slamming Islam next year.”

“It’s gonna be lit,” she added.

Celebrities from across the world have already RSVPed, with Jared Leto confirming he would come dressed up as Muhammed, and Rihanna suggesting she may come dressed up as the Koran.

At publishing time, organizers had confirmed that following years would include mockery of Hinduism and Buddhism to make sure no one felt left out.

The Senate just killed blue slips on judicial nominations

This is just as important as many other things the President is doing.

For the third time in the Trump administration, Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley has moved forward with a confirmation hearing for an appeals court nominee over the objections of Democratic home-state senators

Many people have bemoaned the demise of the filibuster and now the blue slip. It certainly reflects a decline in senatorial courtesy. It’s bad news for individual senators, who now have less power to scuttle nominations.

What is (was) a blue slip?

In the Senate, a blue slip is an opinion written by a Senator from the state where a federal judicial nominee resides.  Both senators from a nominee’s state are sent a blue slip in which they may submit a favorable or unfavorable opinion of a nominee. They may also choose not to return a blue slip. What was originally meant as a courtesy has been abused by some Senators to stall Trump’s nominees.

California’s US Senators’ tortuous exchanges with CIA Director Nominee

Arrogant and extremely rude, Harris thinks she can waltz to the presidency the way Obama did.

The Junior Senator, Kamala Harris, lived down to my abysmal expectations for her.

Harris’ overbearing questions about morality were demeaning, nonsensical, and completely devoid of relevance to today’s security needs.

Earlier on Wednesday, Haspel, a 33-year veteran of the agency who is currently serving as acting director, vowed not to restart the CIA’s controversial detention and interrogation program during a confirmation hearing by the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The First Couple Honor Military Mothers

“Mother’s Day, which is this Sunday, is celebrated just one time per year. I don’t know about all of you, but I think mothers should be celebrated each and every day,” Trump shared with the group, thanking them for the sacrifice they make everyday for our country.

“As a mother myself, I know what goes into raising a child. It takes an incredible amount of strength, a lot of time, a generous amount of patience, and all of your love,” FLOTUS stated. “As moms, we are so incredibly privileged to be able to bring children into this world and be a part of helping them grow into adults.”

THEY RIP THIS WOMAN APART BECAUSE THEY HATE HER HUSBAND. YOU CAN TELL THESE TWO TRULY LOVE EACH OTHER.
