Edit: I am not condemning Bono for talking to Pence but I knew the public would feel rather strongly against this.
meh, it's not that strong a backlash just yet - we've seen worse #SOIhowdoigetthisfuckingalbumoffmyiphone

but seriously, i would seriously think he has some serious masochistic issues if he pushes it much further

It's kind of refreshing to realize that I'm disappointed in Bono but not all put out about it. My life goes on. I like having reached the point where I'm out of kneejerk-Bono-defense mode. Ha.

I saw Milo speak for the first time on Bill Maher over the weekend.

Quite punchable, in that neo-Nazi kind of way.

Also, Bono needs better researchers.

Lol yes now that was a nightmare al the backlash they got! Yes this is not as bad but I agree that if he pushes further or becomes friendly with trump or pence, there go s any chances of people starting to like him.

Bill Maher's almost on the same level of punchable, too.

Sometimes Maher can come off really well. Other times, very poorly.

The Milo thing was a new low for him, though. Fuck Milo Kunisopolis. He's an attention whore who just likes to be different. People are saying "stop interviewing Kellyanne Conway." Stop protesting Milo. Stop interviewing Milo. Stop sharing one degree of separation worth of news about Milo on your Facebook. Stop talking about Milo.

I get it, I'm talking about him a lot having said his name half a dozen times just now... but you get the point. He's like a fucking Kardashian. There's no reason he's famous except for the fact that we let him be famous.

All this is shocking in its scope for cruelty, but hey let's protect freedom of speech.

Too many folks were perfectly okay with Milo's hate until it gets too close to home.

this was the first time i think i ever saw him interviewed, on UK Channel 4 news with Cathy Newman

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entr...b0b8f7701070a5

omg i was so shocked how rude and egotistic he was - they were practically shouting at each other - i don't think i'd ever seen that on UK news before lol
came across as a really smug hateful person!

This is obviously a super important question but are they doing something different to the Orange One's hair? It looks different to me, like they are trying to tame the front.

Yeah, he also seems less orange to me.

Now if only they could also change his personality and add a brain.
We might be in business.
