Here's Every Single Possible Twitter Joke All At Once

I’m old enough to remember when there were still original jokes on Twitter.


But as comedian Paul F. Tompkins notes: after 11 years on the social network, we’re running out of unique ways to be funny. 






The BoJack Horseman star’s tweet inspired an incredible thread of responses pretty much proving his point. Here are some of our favorites:


“Life comes at you fast.”






“TFW.”






“Hold my beer”






“Said no one ever.”






*Record scratch*


*Freeze frame*


Yup, that’s me. You’re probably wondering how I ended up in this situation.


(with bonus Jared Kushner meme!)






“Don’t @ me.”






“You had ONE JOB.”






Condescending applause emojis.






you, fool: still thinks these jokes are original.


me, genius: knows that there are no new jokes anymore.






“RIP my mentions.”

'G.I. Joe' Just Got A Homoerotic Makeover

G.I. Joe is about to go full-on homo(erotic) ― or at least one of the covers of an upcoming issue of the beloved comic book is.


The franchise, which has been offering fans stories about the “real American hero” and his comrades and enemies for over 50 years, recently asked acclaimed artist Ed Luce to design a variant cover for writer Aubrey Sitterson’s “G.I. Joe” #7.


The resulting art, due in stores on July 5, features The Dreadnoks, a biker gang that regularly appears in the comic book, covered in muscles and body hair, and engaged in some sensual bad-boy wrestling.



Luce, who created the queer “Wuvable Oaf” comic book series, recently chatted with HuffPost about the inspiration for his new “G.I. Joe” cover, the reactions he’s seen and more.


What inspired the homoerotic cover of “G.I. Joe” #7?


It was “G.I. Joe” writer Aubrey Sitterson. He has a unique, fun take on the familiar “G.I. Joe” team with this new book. He’s really interested in pushing the boundaries of the concept, honoring long-term fans but also engaging people that are primarily interested in more quirky indie comics. That’s why he’s invited some staples of the indie comics world to do covers ― folks like Tom Neely, Benjamin Marra and Brandon Graham. 


He’s also a fan of my comic “Wuvable Oaf,” published by Fantagraphics, which features a group of large, very bear-y looking dudes as main characters. So he thought I would offer a new spin on these beefy, macho military types. I was only too happy to oblige ... I was definitely a fan of the ‘80s toys and cartoon.


Was there any hesitation over doing the variant cover in this way?
I wouldn’t say there was hesitation ... certainly never from the writer, editor or the publisher, IDW. They’re very progressive with their releases. They’ve done great things with another Hasbro property, “Jem and the Holograms.” I did get a note from the first sketch I did, requesting that a certain character’s posterior be a little less arched, which kind of made me chuckle, because with female comic characters, that’s often been a selling point. They call it “broken back pose,” when you see the woman’s chest and butt at the same time ... which is ridiculous and just not physically possible. But that request to tone down the one Dreadnok’s rear was it. Everyone involved seems to love the cover.


Was there a particular aesthetic you were inspired by or going for? I love all of the fur and I get a Tom of Finland vibe.
I was mainly drawing furrier, grittier versions of all these characters I loved growing up. So not to sound too arrogant, but I was giving them “Wuvable Oaf” makeovers. More body hair, a little chubbier, grimier. The original characters were always a bit too manscaped for my liking. I know my audience and I definitely wanted to give them incentive to seek out this book. I also wanted to remain as true as I could to their ‘80s costumes ... because those are some classic “Mad Max” heavy metal/punk looks.


Has there been any pushback from readers?
Twitter whining. But what doesn’t inspire that these days? Honestly, that was the only conversation I checked in on. It’s interesting when someone clearly doesn’t like something that has a queer point of view. They’ll focus on something else and nitpick it to bits, just so they can voice their outrage without being called homophobic. A few tweets took umbrage with the idea that this was the first openly homoerotic take on these characters. They insisted someone else must have done this before, without citing any examples, of course. Some were frustrated that we were sexualizing these male characters at all. I’m curious if they have a problem with how Baroness and Scarlett [the two main female “G.I. Joe” characters] are drawn?


There were a few comments from gay men about the cover not going far enough. I guess that’s what fan art is for, right? I can’t go there in a licensed cover version ... sorry, guys.


What are your thoughts in general about queer imagery ― especially obviously sensual or sexual imagery ― in comics? 
I think there needs to be more of it, now more than ever. And I think it needs to be as diverse as possible, encompassing all sexualities, gender identities, colors. People look to comics for comfort, connection and representation. They want to see themselves and I think honest portrayals of queer sensual or sexual imagery are a key component to acceptance, both of self and from society.


Can we expect more of this?
Yes ... at least on my part! I did two queer-themed covers for Image Comics’ Pride Month campaign, one for Rick Remender’s “Deadly Class#29 and Donny Cates’ “Redneck” #3. Those will both be available on June 28. Proceeds from these variants go to the Human Rights Campaign. And “G.I. Joe” #7 comes out on July 5!

8 Dumbledore Quotes That Can Help You Save For Retirement

Millennial fans who read through all 3,407 pages of the Harry Potter series know that Albus Dumbledore is among the greatest wizards ever. But they don’t, apparently, know how to save for retirement.


According to a Pew Charitable Trust analysis of 2012 Census Bureau data, more than two-thirds of millennials (ages 22 to 34) have failed to open a retirement savings account. If evil forces such as low salaries, high student loans and a lack of access to 401(k) plans are conspiring against your financial future, why not look to Dumbledore for some good advice?


“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light,” says Dumbledore in “The Prisoner of Azkaban.” As this June marks the 20-year anniversary of the series’ release, what better time to faithfully reference Dumbledore ― in the form of eight of his classic quotes ― and start saving?


#1 “It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.” Time is the one thing that millennials have on their side that no other working generation has. Life expectancies are only rising, and the impact this has on the exponential growth of your money due to compound interest can be quite magical. For example, if at the age of 22 you put $10,000 in an account earning 8-percent interest and never add to it again, you’ll still have over $1 million by the time you turn 82.


#2: “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” Even if you don’t have the ability to save high dollar amounts now, you can still chose to save something. Even a “riddikulus” $25 a week earning 8-percent interest will grow to give you $466,998.79 in 45 years’ time.


#3Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it.” Millennials are facing a nearly pension-less future combined with uncertain government programs and benefits. There’s nothing to gain by putting this off. If your employer offers a matching 401(k) plan, then by all means take advantage of the free money. If you’re self-employed or one of the 35 percent who work for employers not offering 401(k)s, opt for an IRA or a SEP IRA. Yes, they offer the same tax advantages as a 401(k), you can still invest in stocks, and setting them up is simple.


#4 “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Remember why you are saving in the first place. Think about how good it will feel to spend time with your friends or kids or grandkids without rushing off to work. Think about how good it will feel not to be a burden to your family.


#5 “We must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy.” Yes, there will be hard days. You will be tempted to take that extra $25 and give in, go out and throw caution to the wind. Next time you’re faced with that decision, remember what you are choosing and why.


#6 “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.” On the other hand, don’t make yourself crazy. Figure out how to do both ― save for retirement and live your life.


#7 “Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth.” As millennials, you have officially become the nation’s largest demographic at 83.1 million, according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau report. The financial industry is desperate to serve you. The data-heavy white paper Millennials + Money generated by Facebook found that even though millennials are underinvested, 86 percent say they value saving. If lack of knowledge is stopping you, ask for help.


#8 “People find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right.” While it might be hard to stomach the advice of all the well-meaning people imploring you to save, saving is still the right thing to do. Whether you get with a good advisor or take a more do-it-yourself approach, what matters is that you do what you can, or as Dumbledore says, “fight and fight again, and keep fighting.”

This Is How Much Your Favorite HGTV Stars Are Reportedly Worth

Over the past few years, people have become more obsessed with HGTV and the network’s major stars. 


E! News recently looked at the most popular stars on the channel and tried to figure out who was the most sought-out of the group. Their infographic broke down the celebrities’ popularity by their HGTV spinoffs, social media following, estimated net worth (using known salaries and sponsorships, as well as a variety of other incomes or financial involvements), number of years in the business, book deals and more.


In descending order, here are the shows and their stars who have made the most, in terms of reported net worth: 


#5: “Flip or Flop” 


Tarek and Christina El Moussa have earned an estimated $4 million. 



Tied for #3: “Fixer Upper” 


Chip and Joanna Gaines are worth an estimated $5 million, but that will probably increase exponentially with all the deals and real estate offerings they have in the works. 



Tied for #3: “Rehab Addict” 


Nicole Curtis is tied with the Gaines at a reported $5 million. 



2. “Love It Or List It” 


David Visentin and Hilary Farr have brought in an estimated $7 million. 






1. “The Property Brothers”


Drew and Jonathan Scott are worth an estimated $5-10 million, according to E!. 



As the infographic points out, “House Hunters” is one of the most popular TV shows on the channel with over 1,700 total episodes. But because it doesn’t have a star or two, it’s a bit hard to estimate the show’s worth to the network. 


HuffPost reached out to HGTV for comment, but the network could not provide specific information about the stars’ net worth.

Trump Administration Hires Official Accused Of Sexually Assaulting Students


By Justin Elliott


A political appointee hired by the Trump administration for a significant State Department role was accused of multiple sexual assaults as a student several years ago at The Citadel military college.


Steven Munoz was hired by the Trump administration as assistant chief of visits, running an office of up to 10 staffers charged with the sensitive work of organizing visits of foreign heads of state to the U.S. That includes arranging meetings with the president.


At The Citadel, five male freshmen alleged that Munoz used his positions as an upperclassman, class president and head of the campus Republican Society to grope them. In one incident, a student reported waking up with Munoz on top of him, kissing him and grabbing his genitals. In another, on a trip to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., a student said that Munoz jumped on him in bed and he “felt jerking and bouncing on my back.”


An investigation by The Citadel later found that “certain assaults likely occurred.” A local prosecutor reviewed the case and declined to seek an indictment.


Munoz’s hiring raises questions about the Trump administration’s vetting of political appointees, which has been both slow and spotty, with multiple incidents of staff being fired only weeks into their jobs, including for disloyalty to Trump. The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment.


Munoz, a Miami native, worked as a political consultant in South Carolina after graduating from The Citadel in 2011. He was publicly reported to be under investigation the following year around the time he was working for Rick Santorum’s presidential campaign. Stories from that time, which outline some but not all of the allegations against Munoz, are easy to find via a simple Google search.


Details of the case, drawn from an extensive, previously unreported police case file, also raise questions about The Citadel’s response to the alleged string of assaults, according to experts in campus sexual assault. After one student reported to a school official in 2010 that Munoz had sexually assaulted him, The Citadel didn’t discipline Munoz. Instead, it gave him a warning.


Over the next year and a half, Munoz allegedly assaulted four other students. Those incidents weren’t reported until well after Munoz graduated in 2011.



Munoz referred questions to his lawyer, the prominent Charleston defense attorney Andy Savage, who denied the allegations. “I believe that certain disgruntled cadets made exaggerated claims of wrongdoing concerning Munoz’s participation in boorish behavior that was historically tacitly approved, if not encouraged, by the Institution,” Savage said. 


Upon graduation, The Citadel gave Munoz an award for “leadership, sound character and service to others.” The citation said he could “always be counted upon to help classmates who need assistance and to mentor younger cadets adjusting to life at The Citadel.”


A Citadel spokeswoman, Kim Keelor, said the committee that gave the award would not have known about the 2010 allegation because of privacy law. Keelor said of the case overall: “The college proceeded thoughtfully in addressing the reports in accordance with its policy and related processes, and with great concern for those involved and the protection of their privacy.”


When more students came forward the year after Munoz graduated, The Citadel banned him from campus and referred the case to state police, who did an extensive investigation.


When The Citadel later conducted its investigation, it interviewed complainants and witnesses and concluded in 2014 that assaults occurred “based upon a ‘preponderance of evidence,’” according to a statement from the school to ProPublica.


*****


The Citadel is a storied public college based in Charleston, South Carolina, where students, known as cadets, get military instruction as well as traditional coursework. Many join the armed services after graduation.


Freshman are dubbed “knobs” for their shaved haircuts. They go through what the school refers to as “strict indoctrination.” They are subordinate to upperclassmen. There have been repeated hazing problems for many years, and there was a major scandal involvingsexual abuse at the school’s summer camp in the mid-2000s.


The students who accused Munoz of assaults say that he abused his power as an upperclassman and student leader.


Here is what one Citadel student told police about his encounters with Munoz in 2009 and 2010 during his freshman year:



Munoz coerced threatened and convinced me to allow inappropriate touching, grabbing, and kissing by leading me to believe it was what I needed to do to gain acceptance in the corps of cadets. He threatened to call my upperclassmen who would be upset if I did not comply with him.



The student told police he and Munoz would sometimes return to campus early and stay at the home of a Citadel professor, where “during the night Munoz would enter my room and continue the touching.”


Another student who was a freshman in 2011 traveled with Munoz, then a senior, as part of the Republican Society trip to the annual CPAC event in Washington. The student later said in a statement to police that Munoz had jumped on him two times. In one incident, after the freshman was caught with alcohol, Munoz informed the younger student that he would not be citing him for the violation, then came into the freshman’s hotel room:



I was groggy, [Munoz] jumped on me, I felt jerking and bouncing on my back, I threw my elbow up which threw him off the bed to the floor.



A third student, who met Munoz through the Republican Society, described Munoz setting up a series of meetings with him alone in Munoz’s room to talk about how to get leadership positions in campus organizations.



He instructed me to sit on his bed during these meetings. … After a few meetings he began to rub my leg with his hand. He moved his hand under my shorts and the first time I pushed his hand off my leg he said he was just playing and that he did it with his other knobs so I shouldn’t mind. I had seen this in the past and when I asked my classmates about the interaction, they said when they resisted, he yelled at them for not trusting him and Mr. Munoz made them stay longer in his room.



In another meeting, Munoz “put his other hand down my underwear until I again pushed him away, but he did not stop. He said as a new leader I had to learn to trust other leaders on the team and this was how I should show him I trusted him.” Munoz said “he read the Bible and knew what it said and I should not question his love of God. He continued to rub my leg and rub my private area. … He said this needed to stay between us and dismissed me.”


The first incident reported to the school took place in April 2009. As later recounted by a state police investigator, Munoz, then a sophomore, and a freshman were at an off-campus house watching TV and consensually spooning. The freshman later woke up in the middle of the night, “thinking he was having a wet dream, but it was Munoz on top of him with fully body contact, kissing him with his tongue in his mouth. Munoz had his left hand down [the other student’s] shorts touching his penis.”


The following year, in February 2010, the student reported that incident to a Citadel official, Sexual Assault Response Coordinator Janet Shealy. The reporting student told Shealy he didn’t “want to do anything but informal,” according to her notes.


School officials set up a mediation session in which Munoz and the other student met in a conference room. In that meeting, according to Shealy’s notes, Munoz “said it was consensual and that accuser started it.” The other student left “upset,” saying that Munoz had “lied.”


Shealy and another Citadel official, Col. Christopher “Hawk” Moore, met with Munoz again to tell him there would be no disciplinary action taken. Munoz was warned and told to write a statement about what happened.


Experts on campus sexual assault questioned how The Citadel handled that initial report.


“The school has the responsibility to keep people safe on campus,” said Colby Bruno, an attorney at Victim Rights Law Center. “The school should have investigated this more thoroughly. Instead of investigation they went to this mediation.”


Bruno pointed out that the federal government’s guidance on how schools should respond to sexual assault under federal civil rights law explicitly says that even voluntary mediation is not appropriate in assault cases.


“Sexual assault is about power and control,” Bruno said. “You can’t sit two people down who have an imbalance of control and power to have a balanced mediation.”


Citadel spokeswoman Keelor said in a statement that the school’s policy on mediation differs from the federal guidance “because it was developed under the direction of the Department of Justice and the federal courts during the school’s transition to coeducation” in 1996.


Keelor said after the 2010 assault report “the college conducted an investigation.” She said the school could not give details about any specific case. But she said in a statementthat generally an “informal investigation” would include interviewing both students and providing options for support services. The statement also details how the Citadel requires sexual assault prevention classes for each year of a student’s time at the school.


Shealy, The Citadel’s sexual assault response coordinator, declined to comment.


Bruno said a thorough investigation would include speaking to potential witnesses or people who had seen Munoz or the other student soon after the alleged assault.


When more students came forward in fall 2012 — more than a year after Munoz graduated — The Citadel referred the case to the state police, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division. The school also sent a campus-wide email notifying students of the allegations and banned Munoz, then an alumnus, from campus.


One student said in a statement to campus police that he had come forward so long after what happened because he had heard of other incidents and “I want this school to be safe from sexual predators.”


Over the course of several months, police interviewed the five alleged victims, who said they were willing to press charges. (None of them responded to our requests for comment.) The incidents were classified variously as forcible fondling, sexual battery and simple assault.


In March 2013, the state police referred the case to the office of the Charleston County prosecutor, Solicitor Scarlett Wilson. A week after receiving the nearly 200-page case file, the prosecutor said in a letter to police that her office would not seek indictments against Munoz because “there is no probable cause that he committed a crime prosecutable in General Sessions Court.”


Wilson’s office did not respond to requests for comment.


In 2014, according to The Citadel, Munoz requested that the school review its decision to ban him from campus. That’s when the school conducted its own investigation and found that “certain assaults likely occurred.”


Later that year, the school partially rescinded the no-trespass order, “permitting general access to public facilities and events, but no direct cadet interactions.” Asked why, the school pointed to the prosecutor’s decision not to seek indictments.


Savage, Munoz’s lawyer, said in his statement: “Steven Munoz, a graduate of the Corp with a sterling reputation for honesty, integrity and all Corp values, was used as a whipping boy in an attempt by the institution to change its shameful image shaped by its ignorance of the conduct of Skip ReVille and Michael Arpaio.” ReVilleand Arpaio were at the center of widely covered Citadel sexual assault and child abuse scandals.


At the time two of the allegations against Munoz surfaced in 2012, Savage told The Post and Courier newspaper that the allegations were not only false, but also politically motivated. Savage claimed that an unnamed Citadel employee — who was also the mother of one of the alleged victims — had released information on the allegations because she disliked Munoz’s conservative politics. Savage declined our request to provide details to substantiate his claim.


Savage also criticized the investigation of the case, saying that “several cadets complained that they were being pressured to provide misleading statements.” They were “pressured to report interactions that the cadets considered typical barracks banter as if they felt it was inappropriate,” he said.


When asked for details, Savage provided the name of one student, who Savage said was a witness, not a victim. The student is not cited as a witness in the nearly 200-page police case file, and was not immediately available for comment.


Savage also criticized the school’s investigation, saying he was not given enough time to provide witnesses or statements.


Since Munoz graduated, he has been president of a Charleston-based political consulting firm called American Southern Group, according to his LinkedIn profile. The Trump campaign paid the firm tens of thousands of dollars for “event consulting,” according to disclosure filings.


Munoz was then hired to work on Trump’s inaugural committee.


He joined the State Department on Jan. 25, a spokesperson confirmed. The agency declined to comment further.


During the Obama administration, vetting of potential political appointees like Munoz was extensive. A possible hire would be thoroughly examined by the White House Office of Presidential Personnel before being offered a job. That would include everything from a Google search to running a person’s name through criminal records and news databases.


Any significant negative media reports or criminal accusations would lead a file to be flagged for further scrutiny by White House lawyers, according to a former staffer in the office who vetted Obama appointees. Sexual assault allegations would be a serious flag. In the Obama years, candidates under consideration for jobs were passed over because of, for example, a drunk driving case or for being a registered lobbyist.


President Trump’s personnel office is being run by a former Republican Capitol Hill staffer, Johnny DeStefano. But not much is known about how the office checks the backgrounds of political appointees. The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment about details of its vetting process.

Here's What The American Dining Scene Would Look Like Without Immigrants

In light of President Donald Trump’s recent threats to immigrants in the United States, these days we’re becoming more and more aware of the value that other cultures bring to our nation. A quick look at the current American dining scene, and this value becomes instantly palpable.


You can taste it in the kebab carts on the street corners of New York. You can smell it walking past French bakeries that pop up in our metropolitan areas. In fact, entire neighborhoods in big American cities are defined by immigrant cuisine. Think Koreatown in New York City, Little India along Devon Ave. in Chicago, or Thai Town in Los Angeles.


You can also see it in small cities and towns across America. Take, for example, the small city of Northampton, Massachusetts. 



Northampton, also known as The Paradise City, is located in Western Massachusetts, 35 miles shy of the Vermont border and just east of the Berkshires. It feels like a place where the American dream is alive and strong. The small city of nearly 28,000 residents is a charming locale where small businesses, restaurants and bakeries thrive.


Northampton is the kind of place where people still stroll along Main Street, where folks linger in downtown Pulaski Park, and where you’ll likely see at least familiar face during an outing. Northampton also happens to be where I live.


There is one area, however, where Northampton fails and that’s in its diversity. According to the United States Census, as of 2010 Northampton is almost 88 percent white. (Nearly seven percent Latino, four percent Asian and about three percent black.) This is not representative of the demographics of the United States as a whole, in which 77 percent of the population is white, 13 percent black, nearly 18 percent Latino and close to 6 percent Asian as of 2015.


Despite these disproportionate numbers, this small New England city represents the people of the world through its cuisine in a big way. Just walking along Main Street ― the main thoroughfare that runs just below Smith College ― one comes across 33 dining establishments, nearly half of which showcase foods from other nations. 


A close look at this small city ― which in many ways represents a lot of smaller American communities across the nation ― demonstrates just how scarce our dining scene would be without the influence of other countries. Without immigrants to introduce those cuisines, our options would be cut in half, and our lives would be blander because of it.


We made a map so you can see for yourself. The yellow dots indicate each of the 33 restaurants located in Northampton. Scroll to the right, and you’ll see the current restaurant scene in town. Scroll to the left, and you’ll see how many restaurants would remain without the influence of immigrant cuisine ― only 16 remain.





Thailand, Morocco, Mexico and Vietnam are just some of the nations represented in downtown Northampton’s 17 immigrant-influenced restaurants ― and it’s all thanks to non-native residents who have influenced the way we eat. 


The Banh Mi Spot, located at the east end of Main Street, serves traditional Vietnamese sandwiches that rival some of the best in Brooklyn. It’s been in business for three years in Northampton and is an appreciated part of the dining scene. “The Northampton community has been very welcoming,” manager Sitha Ok told HuffPost. “We actually won Best of the Valley Advocate three times in a row.”


The Banh Mi Spot is owned by Ok’s family friends, who are Vietnamese and Cambodian ― and his family works closely with them. Ok manages the place and his brother is one of the cooks in the kitchen. Ok, born in Amherst, Mass. to Cambodian parents, wants to make banh mi as known and loved as burritos. “Everybody knows Mexican food, but not many people know Vietnamese food ― how different it is, and how fresh. We’re just trying to help people be more aware, and it helps that everybody loves food.”


 



This is how food changes this country, when immigrants bring their culture and their food."
Restaurant owner Martin Guillermo Carrera


 


Directly across the street is La Veracruzana Mexican Restaurant, which has been in business on Main Street since 1989. The Mexican-born owner, Martin Guillermo Carrera, says that when he first moved to Northampton you couldn’t find any Mexican food products anywhere. The only corn tortilla he could get his hands on came out of a can. When he opened up shop he had to ship in all his ingredients from Chicago. As a bigger Mexican population moved out east, ingredients became easier to locate. “This is how food changes this country, when immigrants bring their culture and their food,” Carrera told HuffPost. 


Carrera, who has 11 brothers and sisters, discussed the current president during our talk. “All twelve of us were all insulted when Trump said Mexico sends its worst ― we served in the military ― his words cheapened our contribution to this country,” he shared.


But Carrera’s contribution with La Veracruzana has been well appreciated within the Northampton community. And still, within his own restaurant, his staff is affected by Trump’s words and his stance on immigration. “I think people are all nervous for some family members or friends they may have,” Carrera explained.


Adam Dunetz, owner of the breakfast and lunch spot the Green Bean and popular coffee shop The Roost, offers another perspective on how non-native speakers have shaped our American dining scene ― and his insight all happens behind closed doors.


 



Hiring [immigrants] has really been a significant cultural shift in my restaurant. ... I think that they’ve helped people recognize the value of having a good job.”
Restaurant owner Adam Dunetz


 


Dunetz has been in business for over nine years now, and he says he’s never had many non-native speakers in his employment ― until recently. All within the past year, Dunetz told HuffPost, that has changed drastically ― reaching close to 18 percent of his staff ― and he couldn’t be more thankful. His non-native speaking staff is mostly from El Salvador and Mexico.


“The work ethic is unlike anything that I’m familiar with in my experience running these restaurants. I’ve done the Green Bean for nine and a half years, The Roost for six years, I’ve worked with phenomenal employees,” Dunetz told HuffPost. But “these guys work for me for eight hours as hard as I’ve seen anyone work for me, and they usually go on to another job where they do the same thing at night ― probably for another eight hours and probably just as great over there ― they go to bed and do it again in the morning, happy to be there with a smile on their face.”


Dunetz said that this change in his staff came when he was starting to lose some steam in the restaurant industry. “Hiring these folks has really been a significant cultural shift in my restaurant. How could it not influence everybody to see these people that are so appreciative of the work, that work so hard, that are going to work somewhere else when they’re done with here? I think that they’ve helped people recognize the value of having a good job.”


“Their addition to my team in both places has been incalculable in ways that’s just really hard to measure, but really significant,” Dunetz sums up.


All that would be lost in an America where immigrants are no longer welcome. 


Here’s a list of the restaurants on the main thoroughfare ― which includes Main Street and a small section where Main becomes Bridge Road ― that are represented on the map above. Restaurants that primarily feature immigrant cuisine are bolded:

'I'll Fix This,' Sean Spicer Says Of Slow News Day


Like what you read below? Sign up for HUFFPOST HILL and get a cheeky dose of political news every evening!


Fact-checkers tut-tutted President Donald Trump for misstating the number of new jobs added since he took office, but they failed to account for all of Jared Kushner’s jobs. Sean Spicer engaged in some weird comparison of Bashar al-Assad and Adolf Hitler, apparently because he wanted to impale himself on the news cycle. And Trump’s travel expenses are on pace to cost taxpayers more in a single year than Obama did in eight, and it also turns out that Trump was born in Kenya and cheered the 9/11 attacks from a rooftop in New Jersey. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Tuesday, April 11th, 2017:


YOU KNOW WHO ELSE… Chag sameach, everybody! Marina Fang: “White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Tuesday incorrectly claimed that Adolf Hitler ‘didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,’ apparently forgetting that under Hitler, the Nazis gassed millions of Jews in concentration camps…. When a reporter asked him to clarify his remarks, Spicer responded: ‘He was not using gas on his own people in the same way that Assad is doing,’ adding that Hitler ‘brought them into the Holocaust centers,’ apparently referring to the gas chambers.” [HuffPost]


April Ryan reacting to this​ is all of us:






THIS IS AN ACTUAL POOL REPORT: “Subject: White House Pool report #3 — Holocaust.” Tough day at the office for Sean Spicer, who asked the pooler to send out the following statement on his behalf: “In no way was I trying to lessen the horrendous nature of the Holocaust. I was trying to draw a distinction of the tactic of using airplanes to drop chemical weapons on population centers. Any attack on innocent people is reprehensible and inexcusable.”


: Why is this clarification of Hitler comments different from all others?


NANCY PELOSI REALLY MAD - “While Jewish families across America celebrate Passover, the chief spokesman of this White House is downplaying the horror of the Holocaust,” Pelosi said in a statement. “Sean Spicer must be fired, and the President must immediately disavow his spokesman’s statements.” [Press Release]


TRUMP ADMINISTRATION BEEFING WITH RUSSIA - S.V. Date: “While U.S. intelligence has not yet concluded that Russia knew about Syria’s plan to gas civilians ahead of time, senior White House officials said Tuesday that Russia must be pushed on that question. Officials noted the years of close cooperation between the two militaries and the presence of Russian troops at Syrian military bases ― particularly the Shayrat air base that officials said was used to launch the April 4 nerve gas attack that killed close to 100…. The White House held the briefing to refute claims being pushed by Russia, Syria and their surrogates in the media ― including such websites as Infowars ― that the attack was either a hoax or the result of a Syrian government airstrike on a chemical weapons store under the control of rebels and terrorists.” [HuffPost]


WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH KANSAS REPUBLICANS? Suffice to say, it’d be yuge if Dems picked up this seat. Sam Levine and Marina Fang: “Voters in Kansas’ fourth congressional district are heading to the polls on Tuesday in an unexpectedly close race. And there’s a chance they’ll send President Donald Trump a rebuke in the first federal election since he won the White House in November. The contest is over the seat formerly held by Mike Pompeo, the tea party congressman Trump picked to run the CIA. Republicans have a considerable advantage in the district, which is home to Koch Industries, as Pompeo was re-elected by over 31 points in November. Ron Estes, the Republican state treasurer, remains the favorite to win. However, the race appears to be closer than expected. Despite the GOP advantage, Democrat James Thompson, a civil rights attorney and Army veteran, raised about $240,000 in small donations, much of which came in the waning days of the race. [HuffPost]


DONALD TRUMP IS A HUGE LIAR - Noland McCaskill: “President Donald Trump claimed credit Tuesday for the creation of more than 600,000 jobs since he entered office, a figure tens of thousands — if not hundreds of thousands — off his administration’s true job creation totals…. ‘We’ve created over 600,000 jobs already in a very short period of time, and it’s gonna really start catching on now because some of the things that we’ve done are big league, and they are catching on. Already, we’ve created more than almost 600,000 jobs.’ … According to Labor Department data, the U.S. economy added a combined 317,000 jobs in February and March, the first full months Trump’s presidency. About 98,000 of those jobs were added last month.” [Politico]


Weird details of Trump’s private meetings with foreign dignitaries.


JEFF SESSIONS PLOTS BORDER CRACKDOWN - Elise Foley: “U.S. attorneys around the country will devote more resources to prosecuting immigration offenses, including illegal re-entry to the country, document fraud, identity theft and smuggling undocumented immigrants across the border, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday. ‘For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned: This is a new era,’ Sessions told Customs and Border Protection agents and officers in Nogales, Arizona, according to prepared remarks. ‘This is the Trump era. The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our immigration laws, and the catch-and-release practices of old are over.’” [HuffPost]

TRUMP TRAVEL COSTING A &%*@ING FORTUNE - The budget for Trump’s four-year infomercial about his hotels is coming out of your paycheck. Dan Merica: “Donald Trump’s travel to his private club in Florida has cost over an estimated $20 million in his first 80 days as president, putting the president on pace in his first year of office to surpass former President Barack Obama’s spending on travel for his entire eight years. The outsized spending on travel stands in stark relief to Trump’s calls for belt tightening across the federal government and the fact that he regularly criticized Obama for costing the American taxpayer money every time he took a trip…. To date, Trump has spent six weekends — and a total of 21 days — at Mar-A-Lago, his private Palm Beach club. The total estimated costs for those trips are around $21.6 million.” [CNN]


GAO wondering where the Trump transition’s money went. “The U.S. Government Accountability Office is reviewing Donald Trump’s presidential transition, focusing on funding, ethics and communications with foreign governments. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) requested the review in November, citing concerns with ‘reports of ‘disarray’ within a ‘chaotic’ transition.’ In an April 5 letter to Warren and Cummings, the GAO confirmed that it would conduct the review. [HuffPost’s Sam Levine]


SCHUMER DOESN’T WANT TO PLAY WITH POTUS - All the other kids are invited, though. Michael McAuliff: “When Congress returns from its spring break, it will have just four days to pass a spending plan for the rest of the year and thereby head off a government shutdown. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday that despite the looming April 28 deadline, President Donald Trump hasn’t been negotiating with Democrats on a deal. And he said that’s just fine ― because lawmakers on the Hill are on track to get it done and Trump should just leave those Art of the Deal impulses in a trophy case at Mar-a-Lago…. Rather than try to push the White House’s vision, Schumer suggested [White House budget director Mick] Mulvaney and Trump leave it to the lawmakers.” [HuffPost]


And about those tax returns... “Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) is warning that President Trump needs to release his personal tax returns if he hopes to achieve comprehensive tax reform in the coming months. ‘It’s going to make tax reform much harder’ if Trump doesn’t release his returns, Schumer told reporters Tuesday.” [WaPo’s Ed O’Keefe]


THE SOFT BIGOTRY OF LOW EGGSPECTATIONS - Julie Hirschfeld Davis: “The late start in planning by the Trump White House points to a smaller and less ambitious Egg Roll than in previous years. There may be half as many guests, a fraction of the number of volunteers to manage the invasion of the South Lawn, and military bands in place of A-list entertainers like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Idina Menzel and Silentó who have performed for Egg Rolls past. White House officials did not respond to several weeks’ worth of inquiries about the Easter Egg Roll, typically a heavily and enthusiastically promoted affair, and declined to provide basic information such as how many people are expected to attend. It is unclear, for instance, whether Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, will reprise his appearance in a bunny suit for the event, as he did a decade ago when George W. Bush was president.” [NYT]

TRUMP GONNA GET US ALL KILLED - Yes, let’s use Twitter to provoke the weirdo with the nukes. Mark Landler: “President Trump, plainly frustrated by China’s inaction on North Korea, aimed his Twitter feed at Beijing on Tuesday, telling the Chinese government that the United States would exchange trade concessions for support in pressuring Pyongyang. ‘I explained to the President of China that a trade deal with the U.S. will be far better for them if they solve the North Korean problem!’ Mr. Trump declared on Twitter around 8 a.m. That was followed by a more impatient post in which he said: ‘North Korea is looking for trouble. If China decides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the problem without them! U.S.A.’” [NYT]


The North Koreans read those tweets and saw those ships headed toward them. “North Korean state media warned on Tuesday of a nuclear attack on the United States at any sign of American aggression as a U.S. Navy strike group steamed toward the western Pacific…. North Korea’s official Rodong Sinmun newspaper said the country was prepared to respond to any aggression by the United States. ‘Our revolutionary strong army is keenly watching every move by enemy elements with our nuclear sight focused on the U.S. invasionary bases not only in South Korea and the Pacific operation theater but also in the U.S. mainland,’ it said.” [Reuters’ Sue-Lin Wong]


RUDE MAN GETS BELATED COMEUPPANCE - This is good town-hall trolling. Maya T. Prabhu: “U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson received some protests Monday like other Republican congressmen nationwide during town halls this year, getting drowned out at times with loud boos and receiving 30 seconds of ‘You Lie’ chants. ‘I’ve also supported the local solicitor here, and the solicitor in Lexington all efforts to make sure that violence against women is fully enforced,’ Wilson said, prompting one of the loudest negative responses of the congressman’s 40-minute question-and-answer session with voters in Aiken Technical College in Graniteville. Many in the crowd of nearly 200 responded with a phrase he blurted out during a 2009 joint congressional address by then-President Barack Obama: ‘You lie! You lie! You lie!.’ Wilson in 2013 voted against extending the Violence Against Women Act.” [Post & Courier]


ERIC TRUMP LIKES HIS EASY LIFE - Simon Johnson: “The 33-year-old son of the US President goes as far as describing nepotism as a ‘beautiful thing’ as he sits in the clubhouse of the Trump Turnberry golf resort in Ayrshire, where he has overseen a renovation costed at £200 million by the company.” [Telegraph]


WHY IS THIS DINNER STILL HAPPENING? And why does this dude even want the gig? Emily Heil: “’Daily Show’ correspondent Hasan Minhaj will perform at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner this month, taking on the traditional role of cracking jokes about the president and the fourth estate for a black-tie-clad crowd stuffed into the Washington Hilton.” [WaPo]


BECAUSE YOU’VE READ THIS FAR - Enjoy Rick Perlstein’s essay on historians missing the rise of Trump because they’d downplayed racism and fascism in America’s past.


ROMNEY’S BINDERS FULL OF WOMEN ARE REAL!! And you can read them! Jim O’Sullivan: “In the world of important political documents — from the Magna Carta to the Pentagon Papers — there are also those known for more pedestrian reasons. Count Mitt Romney’s ‘binders full of women’ in that category…. For all the high-stakes attention they drew, the binders themselves never surfaced. Until now.” [Boston Globe]

3 Toxic Mistakes That Can Tear Young Married Couples Apart






Even strong relationships are susceptible to marriage mistakes, particularly if the marriage is relatively new, according to Pastor John Gray of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. Pastor Gray often counsels couples and newlyweds in matters of marriage, and he says there are three particular marriage mistakes that are toxic enough to tear two people apart.


MISTAKE #1: Holding your spouse hostage to past mistakes.


People make mistakes. When your partner says or does something that offends you, it’s important not to harp on that mistake in the future. Instead, Pastor Gray says, you must give your spouse the opportunity to learn and grow. “That can mess up a young marriage because nobody knows how to do it right at the beginning,” he points out.


MISTAKE #2: Assuming married life won’t be different from dating.


What does a little piece of paper end up changing? A lot, says Pastor John. “When you engage another human being willingly with the opportunity to walk away, which is what dating is, there’s less pressure,” he explains. “When you get married, now you’re saying, ‘I’m building with this person.’ ... There will be tension.”


MISTAKE #3: Telling your business to your parents.


Pastor John calls this one of the biggest mistakes young married couples make. “Lady, if he offends you, don’t tell your mama. Because when he ends up apologizing and getting it right, and you’re healed from it, the mother still remembers it,” Pastor John says. “Keep your business to yourself.”


Pastor John’s new series, “The Book of John Gray,” premieres Saturday, April 15, at 10 p.m. ET, but you can  watch the first episode in full now on WatchOWN.tv.

Students Protest Sexist Flyers Depicting What ‘Good Girls’ Wear To Prom






On Monday, posters featuring a new prom dress code appeared in the halls of Stanton College Prep, a public high school in Jacksonville, Florida. 


As with many dress code fiascos, the Stanton College Prep dress code flyers are both odd and sexist. Each poster features a woman in a different type of gown with the first one, featuring a sleeveless gown, reading: “Going to Stanton Prom?” At the bottom the post reads: “YES you are. Good girl.” The other three posters feature a dress with a high slit up the leg, a backless dress and a dress with a plunging neckline. Alongside each dress, school administrators wrote: “Going to Stanton Prom? No you’re not.”


Many students were not happy.


Lily Willingham, a student at Stanton College Prep, told The Huffington Post that the students’ assumed faculty put up the posters. “There was immediate outrage due to not only to the fact that the dress code was introduced five days before prom, but also because of the sexist connotations,” Willingham said.


Willingham tweeted a photo of the posters Monday afternoon.






Beyond the fact that the flyers are blatantly sexist, the sudden announcement of a new dress code so close to prom night worried students.


Willingham noted that many girls were upset because they had already bought their prom dresses and didn’t have the time or money to buy a new one before Saturday.  


Many Stanton College Prep students and other Twitter users tweeted their outrage and concern using the hashtag #SCPGoodGirl that student body president






























By Tuesday morning, Stanton College Prep issued an apology for the dress code and reported that the school had taken the flyers down.


“The display of prom dress photos at Stanton College Prep is not appropriate or an approved policy,” the school tweeted. “Images were removed on [Monday].” 


According to local news station Action News Jax, Stanton Prep principal told students: “Please do accept my apology for this poor delivery of information. Our intent is to make sure prom is enjoyable and memorable.”






On Monday night, student body president Anthony Paul had told students to wear purple and white colors and duct tape the female gender sign on their shirts in protest of the posters.






Since the school’s apology wasn’t made until 10 a.m. on Tuesday (during school hours), many students still wore purple and white in an awesome display of resistance against the sexist dress code. 


Below Willingham and other female Stanton College Prep students pose for a picture on Tuesday wearing purple and white in protest of the flyers.






Willingham told HuffPost she was excited to see students come together to protest the dress code. 


“It was incredibly inspiring to me to see that students voices were heard [on Tuesday] and we were able to unite as a student body to make a difference,” she said. “It also brought to light an issue affecting women all over the nation when it comes to dress code in schools as well as societies constant hyper-sexualization of females bodies so I hope bringing attention to this will cause change in not only schools but society as well.”


Scroll below to see more students who wear white and purple in solidarity. 


























As Willingham told HuffPost, this event reflects a larger trend of policing women’s bodies through dress codes. 


“Unfortunately what happened here is a symptom of what is still happening to girls in this country – – this over sexualization of our bodies and emphasis on it,” she said. “Girls are made to feel responsible for what a boy ‘might do or feel’ in response to how we dress. Dress codes are grossly outdated for 2017.”


We could not agree more.
