Commentary on the news.

Forgiveness or foolishness?

It really doesn’t matter where Hoda Muthana was born, or at least it shouldn’t.

What does matter is that she didn’t have this epiphany that she should be able to repatriate to the U.S. until ISIS had been essentially evicted from their caliphate.

The closest she should be able to get to the U.S. is a room in Cuba. She can talk with the FBI from there.

In this case forgiveness isn’t divine, it’s plain damn foolishness.

We understand that she has parents and a family who were probably devastated when she joined ISIS, and that she has a child who was not born a jihadist, and we feel for them.

That still does not absolve her from four years of calling for jihad against Americans.

Perhaps she is repentant, but if she is just looking for a place to light so she doesn’t wind up dead, she could just as easily recruit for ISIS as speak against them.

Better that she stay away.

An actor he ain’t.

Jussie Smollett supposedly concocted his little drama because he was dissatisfied with his $65,000 per episode salary.

Based on how well he played his role in his made-up hate crime drama, he’s overpaid.

This sounded fishy from the beginning. Who would leave a clothesline “noose” around his neck for any amount of time for the police to see? Wouldn’t you want that thing off as soon as you could remove it?

Only in tinsel town.

Still not holding our breath.

We’ll believe the Mueller investigation is wrapped up when he hands it to AG Barr. Until then, we’ll keep breathing.
