The Trump White House on Wednesday tried to make Thanksgiving a new political flashpoint, calling new restrictions recommended by health experts and governors “Orwellian.”
As COVID-19 spikes dramatically across the country and Americans struggle to decide how many family members should gather, or whether to do so at all, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said leaving it to individuals how to deal with the virus was “the American way.”
Much as the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine became an unproven remedy for Covid deniers, ivermectin has emerged in recent weeks as a new false cure.
Just in the nick of time, Victoria’s Secret model Joy Corrigan left New York and moved to Newport Beach in Southern California right before the pandemic. Now, instead of being holed up through the winter in some dim apartment, she’s by the shore at least a few times a week for a run, a walk or just to sun herself.

Federal authorities have arrested a Donald Trump supporter caught on video bragging about macing police at the Capitol on Jan. 6.
Samuel Lazar, who was arrested in Pennsylvania on Monday, spent the months after the Capitol attack attending political events in support of the former president and his political allies. The case against him was unsealed on Tuesday.
David Montgomery Fantasy Football Outlook (2021) (7/7) Advice: I was the one pounding the drum for David Montgomery last season when he was being drafted as the 25th RB off the board. With that being said, in no way did I anticipate a top-5 finish! Despite a truly terrible offense, Montgomery produced for fantasy managers and helped deliver some titles with his dominant stretch to end the year. Unfortunately, we shouldn’t be expecting that same level of dominance in 2021. Tarik Cohen will be back and healthy, which means a dramatic dip in receiving production for Montgomery. Additionally, Damien Williams was added to this backfield to take the Cordarrelle Patterson role, which will take some carries away too. Montgomery is still going to provide fantasy managers with a very safe floor week after week, but we need to temper our expectations for the young RB heading into this season. Fantasy players that draft Montgomery thinking that they’re going to get 2020 production are most likely going to be disappointed. It’s safe to view Montgomery as a mid-range RB2. My Very Early Projection: 249-1058-8 rushing & 31-238-1 receiving. (FantasyPros.com)

2021 fantasy player outlook for DeVante Parker, WR, Miami Dolphins (6/23) Advice: DeVante Parker went from the No. 1 receiver in Miami to potentially No. 3 on the depth chart after the Dolphins added Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle this offseason. That makes Parker tough to trust in most Fantasy leagues, and he’s only worth drafting with a mid-round pick at best. Along with Mike Gesicki, Preston Williams and plenty of depth at the receiver spot, Parker will likely look more like the Fantasy option who averaged 11.5 PPR points per game last season compared to the one who averaged 15.4 PPR points per game in 2019. Parker also struggled with Tua Tagovailoa compared to Ryan Fitzpatrick, and hopefully Parker and Tagovailoa establish a better rapport this year. Keep an eye on Parker’s role in training camp and the preseason, but his arrow is pointing downward with the additional weapons Miami added this year. (CBSSports.com)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Hunter Henry, TE, New England Patriots (6/23) Advice: Hunter Henry’s Fantasy prospects seem very different now that he’s with the Patriots. While New England’s offense figures to be a little more pass friendly in 2021, Henry is one of several new parts of this offense. Competing for targets is nothing new for Henry, who had a career-best 6.6 per game in 2020 with the Chargers. However, in 55 career games, Henry has scored 21 times and has just 13 outings with at least 70 yards. His PPR per-game average tumbled from 12.1 to 10.0 last season, and with 10 career catches on passes 20-plus yards downfield, he’s never been a legit deep threat. If you’re starting Henry, you’re hoping he scores, and in this version of the Patriots offense, that’s tough to count on from week to week. Henry is no better than a late-round flier with uncertain expectations — don’t take him until Round 11 at the earliest. (CBSSports.com)
Trump’s years in the White House have produced many books written by renowned American journalists ready to demonstrate the tycoon’s collusion with Russia. This week, American Kompromat: How the KGB Cultivated Donald Trump, and Related Tales of Sex, Greed, Power, and Treachery by Craig Unger, has joined these ranks, promising to reveal the ex-President’s relations with the KGB.
To get to the bottom of the spy story Unger draws on the account of Yuri Shvets, an ex-Major of the KGB working undercover as a Tass Agency correspondent in Washington D.C. in the 1980s.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry left their posh Montecito estate for even posher Bev Hills, and they went pretty much unnoticed.

A meme circulating on Facebook claims without evidence that Hillary Clinton has made $95.5 million since she ran for president in 2016, and falsely implies that she and former President Barack Obama enriched themselves by “steal[ing] your money.”
The national embarrassment Jimmy Kimmel has termed “Squattergate” – Donald Trump’s refusal to acknowledge Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential election and facilitate the transition of power – sputtered along on Tuesday evening, the day before the deadline for the Trump campaign to request a recount in Wisconsin. The recount for a state Biden won by over 20,000 votes would cost the Trump campaign $8m, “which is why he’s asking his supporters for $16m – a little walking around money on the side,” Kimmel joked.
“The only way Wisconsin is getting $8m from Donald Trump is if it has sex with him 63 times.”
2021 fantasy player outlook for O.J. Howard, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6/23) Advice: O.J. Howard enjoyed a very productive training camp in 2020, but there was very little buzz surrounding his Fantasy stock after the team signed Rob Gronkowski. After all, how much production could we expect from a potentially No. 2 TE option in a Bruce Arians offense that is typically not very TE-friendly? Howard went on to have a bigger role than expected with 19 targets and two TDs in four games. The talent that got him drafted in the first round of the 2017 class is still there, but he’s more of a wait-and-see play than someone to target in your 2021 drafts. (CBSSports.com)
The idea of a “California exodus” that has seen waves of residents abandon the state has been steadily gaining steam. But new research has revealed it appears to be more myth than reality.
It can be tough to keep an account of everything running on a multitude of platforms these days: from traditional broadcast and cable to premium networks to a multitude of streaming options, knowing where to find the best TV and movies can be a nearly impossible task. But we are here to help!
Q: Did NPR report that a study found “over 25 million Hillary Clinton votes were completely fraudulent,” and that she “actually lost the popular vote”?
A: No. That claim was made in a story that conflates a 2012 article about inaccuracies in voter registration rolls with actual fraudulent votes.
“An electric vehicle merely gives you one more reason to own Apple, not trade it,” the “Mad Money” host said. “Hopefully, everyone will forget this story tomorrow and the stock will sell off, giving you another chance to buy into weakness.”
On Monday, Reuters published an article reporting that the iPhone manufacturer could build a car, potentially with its own battery technology, by 2024. Investors responded the day after trading the stock up almost 3% to a $131.88 close, giving it a more than $2.25 trillion market cap, the largest valuation on the market.
Q: Was “voter fraud” responsible for Democratic wins in Orange County, California?

A whopping 5.4 million new business applications were filed in 2021, surpassing the record set in 2020 of 4.4 million.
2021 fantasy player outlook for N’Keal Harry, WR, New England Patriots (6/23) Advice: N’Keal Harry will likely be the No. 4 receiver in New England this year at best, and he’s not worth drafting in most Fantasy leagues. The Patriots added Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne this offseason, and along with Jakobi Meyers, all of them could be ahead of Harry on the depth chart. Since being selected in the first round of the NFL Draft in 2019, Harry has been a bust, and things aren’t likely to change for him in New England, which should remain a low-volume passing attack. Hopefully, Harry proves us wrong and could become a waiver-wire addition during the season, but we need to see it first over a solid stretch of games. (CBSSports.com)
Mitt Romney lost by 5 million votes in 2012 and sparked a 100-page RNC autopsy report. Donald Trump lost by 7 million and there isn’t a peep.
The Italian shades brand is harking back to the 1990s once again with its latest interpretation of the PO3260S, the Persols worn by Jude Law in the eternally stylish 1999 thriller, The Talented Mr. Ripley. (Before that, the iconic frames were made famous by Marcello Mastroianni in La Dolce Vita.)
Donald Trump falsely claimed that “John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, was quoted in WikiLeaks as saying, illegal immigrants could vote as long as they have their driver’s license.” Podesta said no such thing.
President Trump wrongly claims that “58,000 non-citizens voted in Texas.” That’s based on the state’s efforts to match driver’s license and state ID card applications from noncitizens to voter registration rolls. But none of those on the lists have been confirmed as noncitizen voters.
