‘Cool story bro’: Jerry Falwell Jr drowned in mockery for using 9/11 to brag about meeting Don Henley

Published

on

Jerry Falwell Jr. marked the 18th anniversary of 9/11 by bragging about meeting singer Don Henley — and other social media users poured on the mockery.

The Liberty University president has been the subject of a series of salacious reports this week about his personal life and self-dealing, and he interrupted his denials about partying at nightclubs to boast about an Eagles concert he attended after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Falwell claimed he attended the first performance of “Hole in the World,” written by Henley in response to the terrorist attacks, and then bragged about meeting the rock legend afterward.

“We attended an Eagles concert when Hole in the World written in honor of the victims of 9/11 was 1st sung,” Falwell tweeted. “I told Don Henley in person it was a Christian song – until we learn to love one another we will never reach the Promised Land. God bless the victims’ families & 1st responders.”

Other Twitter users were unimpressed.

America’s millionaires just stopped paying into Social Security for the rest of 2020

On Wednesday, not even two full months into 2020, millionaires will stop paying into Social Security for the year due to the program's payroll tax cap.

The cap limits annual wages subject to the Social Security payroll tax to the first $137,700. Sarah Rawlins, program associate at the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), wrote Tuesday that the cap means "someone who makes $1,000,000 per year stops paying into the program on February 19, 2020."

"That makes a millionaire's effective tax rate well below the 6.2% of income that most Americans pay," Rawlins noted. "Instead, it is less than 1% of a millionaire's income. The Social Security tax is only levied on wages, excluding income from other sources like capital gains, meaning those with wages over the cap likely have an effective tax rate even lower than this estimate."

Emerson College was blasted for leaving their own senator out of head-to-head matchups in their latest nationwide poll.

The poll showed four candidates with double-digit support. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) measured at 29%, former Vice President Joe Biden was at 22%, former NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg was at 14% and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) came in at 12%.

But the poll did not even test Warren in head-to-head matchups with Trump.
