She then put a man named Harrison Ford on speakerphone, who does not seem to be the Harrison ford, and can be heard offering Freeman protection if she confessed to fraud. He further claimed that if she were to decline the offer, she would go to jail

Well, if it does turn out to be the Harrison Ford...that's the ultimate plot twist right there.

Well... you're close.

Kanye West spotted at Mar-A-Lago alongside mask-off neo-nazi Nick Fuentes

This is the same Nick Fuentes who had Marjorie Taylor Greene as a keynote speaker at a white nationalist conference.

To be fair, it's not clear just how much of an involved Nick was with Trump. But it is clear that Kanye is farther down the antisemitism pit than we may have initially realized.

When I clicked on the OP, I had to double-check the date twice because of deja vu. Of course, it's not really deja vu when you are reliving things.

"Deja oh my ******* gawd not this **** again" is the appropriate term.

I’m saddened by news of Ye and Trump getting along.

I was so looking forward to a formal Trump/Ye debate. They each believe their raison d’être is to interrupt people.

President West would likely be somewhat less harmful to the USA than President Trump redux. Of course the country would never fully recover from either.

I'm pleased to brighten your day: Trump is now trashing him.

I got a good laugh at Kanye asking Trump to be his VP.
