A same-sex couple was outraged in Wales on Thursday when a restaurant labeled them “lesbians” on their receipt.

Belinda Mulcahy and Jo James were celebrating Belinda’s birthday at a restaurant in Northern Wales. The couple was sitting alone together and were outraged, when presented with a bill at the end of their meal, to find their server had labeled them “lesbians,” reported PinkNews.

Jo quickly took off her tool belt, tucked in her plaid shirt, and complained to management (okay that didn’t happen but it’s nice to believe.)

“Even though it’s true, they were outraged by it. Why on earth would they put on a receipt? I can’t imagine they’d write Jews or Blacks or even Disabled,” a friend of the couple said to Pink News.

“Belinda looked at me and she said, ‘Are you alright?’ I showed her and she was speechless,” James said to Diva Magazine. “We hadn’t done anything overt. We hadn’t been kissing at the bar or holding hands. We could have been friends. We could have been relations.”

“We could have been a whole host of things. So the fact he decided to identify us as lesbians was a bit horrifying,” she continued. “We were shocked at how stupid this man had been. I don’t know what upon earth possessed the staff member a) to write it and b) to hand me the receipt with it on.”

According to the restaurant, the staff member was verbally reprimanded and the ladies were offered complimentary drinks but they claim it’s not enough.

The restaurant clearly had very little experience handling lesbian outrage, the only appropriate retribution is either a gift card to Home Depot or tickets to some unfunny feminist comedienne like Ellen DeGeneres.

Lesbians being identified as lesbians is horrifying? That is a serious first world problem they have there. Meanwhile around the globe, actual horrifying things happen daily.

This pair is obviously confused, sensitive, uncomfortable, questioning or all of these items combined and that indecision is impacting their own choices in a partner. They are either embarrassed of what they are dragging around with them or being dragged around by some classless loser. This is the Problem here, it is NOT the Restaurant. I know friends who have nice, middle scale and higher food establishments. They do have a category on the servers Customer Tickets, that attempt to define characteristics or preferences of the customer so the environment that the customer will be seated to enjoy their meal, etc., will NOT affect the customer's enjoyment of the time, food, and atmosphere of the Restaurant. In this case in question, the customers just plain stupid, very inexperienced, or just wanted to cause a scene, for someone who had reached out that extra hand to be kind to a customer, and the customer decided to just Bite him instead of being gracious and thankful. In my opinion, the two diners owe the Restaurant Owner, the servers, the waiters a serious heart felt apology.

Offended for being called a lesbian. Isn't that what they have been fighting for? Should I be offended for being called a heterosexual? So sick of the pc world!

If they were in fact Lesbians what's the big deal ... They may have been some of those out there blocking traffic and protesting for gay rights! If they aren't Lesbians then I can see why they might be upset. I eat lunch once a month with an ex-coworker and I'm sure some might think we're a gay couple. If that was written on our bill we would totally blow it off and laugh about it! Come off with a whoa whoa ... hey, we are not lesbians. Done deal!!

THEY SHOULD HAVE PAID FOR THEIR MEAL...PLUS A GIFT CARD FOR THEM BOTH...FIFTY DOLLARS EACH.

It interests me that the guilty parties become the offended parties. They clearly sent signals that they are homosexuals through dress or mannerisms or both, so what's the big deal? If the waiter was female and offered them a threesome, they'd would more than likely have been delighted. This whole thing is really rather silly. It's a typical overreaction one would expect from a village idiot.

If lesbianism is normal why would they be offended. I don't get offended if they label me as "straight good looking tall handsome guy" LOL>>>>

They can suck face and act stupid in public, but they get upset when someone calls them out of the closet. Must be snowflake tourists from the U.S.

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
