    So I turn on CNN tonight and they are showing the devistation in the south with over 200 people killed from the tornados. It was heart breaking. Thinking that FOX could expand on this, I turn to see O"Reily telling everyone that the GOP is going to have to deal with Trump....very sad.

    AND I WILL BE SO FRIGIN GLAD WHEN THE ROYAL WEDDING IS OVER! I hope William waits longer than his dad did, before committing adultry.

    Glenn talked about it quite a bit earlier today.

    Don't know why OReilly is wasting his time with Trump

    I missed that. I must agree on the wasting of time. But I guess the assumption is people want to hear about Trump...

    I think the GOP brass are going to have a hard time getting use to Trump's style. There is nothing "kind and gentle" about it.

    If Donald Trump married Oprah, would the world explode?

    Like...cataclysmic chunks of the earth flying off towards Mars or something.

    Im not too worried about it. Once he drops out and someone else is the nominee, we wont even remember he was in it.

    I sometimes criticize the Weather Channel for over sensationalizing the weather but in this case they had it right. Weather guy Jeff Morrow was on a hill overlooking the path of the tornado in Ala. and he had breathtaking videos of the gigantic black cloud.

    I just don't see him revealing his net worth. It ain't gonna happen...IMHO.

    Maybe lefties don't understand the difference between news commentary and ....well....news? O'Reilly is taped. News is relatively live. Watch the weather channel if you want up to date weather news.

    Not to mention that Trump is political news in the US. CNN, MSNBC, et al have been running the royal wedding in Britain the majority of the news cycle.
