Bloomberg taps Oprah Winfrey as his vice presidential running mate for the 2020 election.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has made his decision on his running mate for the 2020 presidential election. For his vice president he has chosen Oprah Winfrey, the talk show host and philanthropist. In 2016 Bloomberg flirted with the idea of Oprah Winfrey as his secretary of commerce, this time deciding to make the leap and add her name to the ballot.

Bloomberg has a history of sexist and racist comments, and hopes that selecting the most powerful black woman in America will rectify this. Winfrey, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama for her efforts during the 2008 election, has decided she is ready to help get Bloomberg to the White House.

Despite his patterns of sexual harassment and discrimination against minorities, Winfrey and Bloomberg get along quite well and have become good friends. Winfrey’s work with the Time’s Up movement and her Leadership Academy for Girls will help balance Bloomberg’s past controversies.

Bloomberg is a late addition to the poll and is hoping this move will produce a frenzy of online memes and thus boost his polling numbers.

Mexico Agrees to Pay for Border “Welcome Wall”

A thousand artists are queued up to build the Welcome Wall, an art installation wall running the length of the US/Mexico border. The first section of the Wall was unveiled today in Mission, Texas, at the National Butterfly Center, painted by eight artists, including organizer/creator and world-renowned artist Ron English, a New York-based Texas native.

“The wall is being built NOW, but not by Trump, and Mexico is paying for it, not American taxpayers. And it really is beautiful. It’s environmentally neutral, and we hope it becomes a global tourist attraction and national treasure. Our wall is a welcome, not a rebuff. Our wall has doors and climbing rocks!”

The first section of the Welcome Wall was funded by an indiegogo campaign. Subsequent sections will be funded by the Mexican government, which has also agreed to provide contractor and construction support for the art installation to run from Texas to California along the US/Mexico border.

Mark Green withdraws as Trump’s Army secretary nominee, citing ‘false and misleading attacks’

The Trump administration’s second Army secretary nominee withdrew from consideration Friday amid mounting opposition to past comments he made about Islam, evolution and gender issues.

Mark E. Green, a firebrand Republican state senator in Tennessee and veteran of the Iraq War, said there can be no distractions in overseeing the military and blamed “false and misleading attacks against him” in a statement provided to the media. The Pentagon and the White House had no immediate reaction to his announcement, but it came hours after a Defense Department spokesman declined during a meeting with journalists to say whether Defense Secretary Jim Mattis still supported him for the job.

Green pulled out after a month of calls for the Trump administration to choose someone else. Advocacy groups for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people immediately launched an effort on Capitol Hill to block his nomination after it was announced April 7, saying his history of antagonism toward them made him an unacceptable choice.
