MISS PIGGY SAVES TONY BENNETT

Just in case you missed it yesterday, Miss Piggy averted a national entertainment catastrophe yesterday by saving singer Tony Bennett from falling off a float at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It was hardly noticed by the Today Show’s Matt Lauer who either ignored it or just kept going. Lauer did promote the singer’s special on NBC later this month. After the song, the float lurched forward. Bennett who is still spry at 90 tried to steady himself with some packages but was faltering. The Miss Piggy character jumped into action and anchored Bennett. The crooner whose most famous song is “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” must have had that heart in his throat yesterday. But leave it to a woman, albeit one in character to save the day.
HILLARY GOES SHOPPING

The night before Thanksgiving, Hillary and Bill Clinton and their daughter were out shopping for a Thanksgiving Dinner. You can bet your ass that Mike Pence’s running mate would never, ever be caught dead doing that. Yet the GOP supporters said she was the elitist.
GET THIS GUY
So isn’t amazing how supporters of Mike Pence’s running mate get pissed and hurt when no one responds to their love of their candidate. This man wanted the plane to cheer for Trump and when no one did he channeled the big man-child baby that was elected President. Why he wasn’t thrown off the plane is incredible to me!
BOB MELLOW MIGHT NEED A RE-DO

Convicted State Senator Bob Mellow will definitely need a re-trial if the Secret Service gets their way. The Secret Service wants to rent a floor at Trump Tower to protect Mike Pence's running mate. And who will get the money paid for by your tax dollars? uh, Mike Pence's running mate. Mellow got convicted pretty much for the same thing. Life just isn't fair UNLESS you're Mike Pence's running mate. This might help Mellow's rehab tour though.
