1 – Looney Tunes Uses Bugs Bunny to Celebrate Drag Queens for Pride Month: ‘Get Your Drag On’
Breitbart reported: Looney Tunes — the classic children’s animated brand from Warner Bros. — is celebrating Pride Month by encouraging people to dress up as drag queens.
In a tweet Thursday, which was the first day of Pride Month, the official Looney Tunes Twitter account posted a tribute to Bugs Bunny in various states of female attire — though noticeably not from his turn as Brunnhilde in “What’s Opera, Doc?”
“Happy Pride, get your drag on,” Looney Tunes wrote.

4 – Two more Oath Keeper defendants sentenced for Jan. 6 sedition
ABC News reported: Two more Oath Keeper defendants were sentenced Friday, the latest in a series of new prison terms for those convicted of disrupting the Jan. 6 certification of the 2020 election.
Oath Keeper David Moerschel, a former neuroscientist, was sentenced to three years in prison for seditious conspiracy and other charges. He was joined by his co-defendant Joseph Hackett, who was sentenced to three years and six months on Friday. Both sentences were a fraction of the recommendation from prosecutors who said Moerschel and Hackett each deserved 10 and 12 years, respectively.
Last January, the two were found guilty of conspiring to commit sedition against the United States. That jury convicted both men of three additional felonies, finding they had plans to disrupt the electoral college certification and were — at least partially — successful.
Hackett, a former chiropractor from Florida, was also found guilty for destroying evidence.
“I regret being there that day,” Hackett told the judge Friday. “I regret ever joining the Oath Keepers.”

5 – POLL RESULTS: Did Elon Musk handle the Daily Wire movie launch correctly?
There’s been a lot of contention on how Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, handled the premiere of Daily Wire’s What Is A Woman? documentary last night. The lead up to the premiere was met with resistance by internal employees at Twitter. In fact, Twitter’s head of trust and safety Ella Irwin resigned Thursday evening, per multiple sources, after owner Musk rebuked his own staff over the content moderation label placed on the documentary.
Many have been critical and appraising of Musk’s decision. Some praised him for the swift intervention.
We asked you if Musk handled the movie launch correctly. Below are the results.
