A vegetarian Wall Street trader says he lost his job after he refused to eat meat with his boss. Ryan Pacifico has filed a lawsuit that claims he was fired for his vegetarianism. According to the suit, Pacifico’s boss said, “You don’t even eat steak, dude. At what point in time did you realize you were gay?”
While Pacifico is heterosexual, the lawsuit claims his boss called him a “homo vegetarian.”
Fox’s Megyn Kelly disagrees with lawsuit. “What a crock. He was fired because of his perceived sexual orientation because his boss teased him about being gay? To steal a phrase from prince, ‘Welcome to this thing called life.'”

"They didn't cover two Nobel Prizes," Trump says he told first lady Melania Trump. "I got two in one week, did you ever hear of that?"
Trump received two nominations, he has never won a Nobel Peace Prize.

Trump’s Amy Coney Barrett pick for Supreme Court might backfire: analysts
President Donald Trump announced Saturday that he would nominate Amy Coney Barrett to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vacant Supreme Court seat. Trump made his pick official during an event at the White House Rose Garden.
“As Amy has said, being a judge takes courage. You are not there to decide cases as you may prefer, you are there to do your duty, and to follow the law, wherever it may take you. That is exactly what Judge Barrett will do on the U.S. Supreme Court.”
He continued: “No matter the issue, no matter the case before her. I am supremely confident that Judge Barrett will issue rulings based solely upon a fair reading of the law. She will defend the sacred principle of equal justice for citizens of every race, color, religion and creed.”
