President Biden signed into law Friday the bill designating the site of the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, as a national memorial, according to the White House. “Just over five years ago, the Pulse nightclub, a place of acceptance and joy, became a place of unspeakable pain and loss,” Biden said. “And we’ll never fully recover, but will remember. ... May no president ever have to sign a monument like this.” Biden was joined at the White House by First Lady Jill Biden, survivors and family members of the victims of the June 2016 shooting, as well as Florida Congress members and members of...
Jimmy Kimmel mocks 'world's craziest ex' Trump for attacking Biden: 'Just another old man in Florida'
Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday night marked the one-year anniversary of President Joe Biden's inauguration.
"It's also the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump skipping his inauguration, like it was Don Jr.'s birthday party or something," Kimmel said during his monologue. "One year ago today, Donald and Melania Trump boarded Air Force One to fly home to Florida, and that was the last time they saw each other."
Kimmel also mocked Trump for his statement Wednesday falsely accusing Biden of taking only "softball" questions during a White House news conference, and claiming he "would never have been allowed to get away with that."
"So he released this while Biden was in the middle of the press conference," Kimmel said. "He really is the world's crazy ex. Basically, Biden is Pete Davidson, America is Kim Kardashian, and Trump is a chubby orange Kanye."
"He got away with everything," Kimmel added. "He Sharpie'd his own weather on a map. There's nothing he didn't get away with. But now he's just another old man in Florida complaining about things he sees on TV."
Watch the full monologue below.

Former president Donald Trump can't seem to keep his walls straight.
During an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity on Thursday night, Trump appeared to confuse a completely metaphorical wall with his actual border wall.
Referring to President Joe Biden, Hannity said, “So, you keep banging your head against the wall — why would you expect a different result?”
Trump responded: "So, we would have had the wall completed in three weeks. It was largely completed. We did almost 500 miles of wall.”
Coincidentally, Trump also bragged during the interview about once "acing" a cognitive test.

GOP lawmaker introduces measure for New Hampshire to secede: 'Our state's sovereignty has been stolen'
On Thursday, WMUR's Adam Sexton reported that New Hampshire Republican state Rep. Mike Sylvia has introduced a constitutional amendment to allow New Hampshire to secede from the United States.
"Some believe that the question of independence has been settled," said Sylvia at a House hearing. "If so, then our state's sovereignty has been stolen."

New Hampshire state lawmakers have been embattled in a series of controversies over the past several months. In October, state Rep. Ken Weyler stepped down as chair of the House Finance Committee after claiming that the COVID-19 vaccines are a Satanic plot by the Catholic Church and contain tentacled creatures and 5G mind control technology.
The party's conspiracy theories have grown so bizarre that one Republican member of the New Hampshire House, Bill Marsh, defected to the Democratic Party in protest.
