1 – Elon Musk calls out AOC, asks Twitter followers if they trust ‘politicians’ or ‘billionaires’
FOX NEWS reports: The world’s richest man, Elon Musk, is once again trolling liberals online with his Twitter posts. His latest antics were a direct poke at liberal politicians such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who believe that billionaires are a bane to society and need to be heavily taxed out of existence.
On Friday morning, the eccentric billionaire, Tesla CEO and possible future owner of Twitter constructed a Twitter poll asking his 95.3 million followers whether they trust billionaires or politicians less.
Musk’s tweet read, “Who do you trust less? Real question.” He provided the options of either “Politicians” or “Billionaires.” As of Friday afternoon, the poll had amassed over 3 million votes, and 75.7% of participants selected “Politicians” as who they trust less, while 24.3% selected “Billionaires.”
He then challenged AOC to pose the same question to her followers.
Who do you trust less? Real question.

MY TAKE: As I write this, the poll says 75% trust politicians less, and the post registers 3,372,048 votes. Personally, it depends on the politician. Most sway with the wind and you can’t really know what they stand for. Pelosi – I don’t trust her an inch. Trump, I trust much more. That doesn’t mean I trust billionaires necessarily, either. Case by case is the way. How about you? Who do you trust less? Tell me in the comments.
2 – EXCLUSIVE: Salvador Ramos’s cousin reveals he asked her third-grader son for details about Robb Elementary – including what time students were let out for lunch – a week before massacre: ‘He knew my baby went to school there’
DAILY MAIL reports: The cousin of Texas gunman Salvador Ramos has revealed the teenage killer had asked her young son for details about his elementary school, just a week before going on a murderous rampage.
Shelby Celeste Salazar said her son was a third grade student at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, where her 18-year-old cousin opened fire Tuesday in a horrific shooting spree that killed 19 children and two teachers.
Speaking to DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview, Salazar, 28, said days before the massacre, Ramos had spoken to her son and had asked him which school he attended and what time students were let out for lunch.
‘At the time I didn’t think anything of it, they had a good relationship. They are second cousins,’ the mother-of-four said.

MY TAKE: Can this story get any more twisted? Starting with the planning, preening, shooting his own grandmother, killing innocent children, and finally the mocking statements he made as he committed the heinous acts. Absolutely sickening. Now, if the claim is true, to learn that he tried to get information from a young boy that he knew was a student at the school he targeted. Evil is the only word for it.
3 – Keith Olbermann, journalists fall for Twitter hoax accusing Abbott rep of harassing Uvalde victim’s family
FOX NEWS reports: Several journalists were duped by a fake viral tweet on Thursday after a user claimed he was harassed by a representative of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, R., after his “nephew” died in the Uvalde, Texas school shooting.
“Uvalde Update: We were finally able to see my living nephews body to confirm identity. Shot in the face. While leaving to return home we were followed by what was assumed to be media, which win we do not wish to speak during this time,” tweeted an anonymous user under the account @MyCancerJourne3.
According to the thread, the man received a knock on his door four minutes after returning home, where he was greeted by a representative of Gov. Abbott. The representative allegedly offered the man money to stand with the governor and say that the U.S. does not need stronger gun laws, and the user claimed the rep threatened him and his family for not going along with the plan.
“We responded with f— you, try me and find out. Then we were told people get hurt and disappear all the time. F— Greg Abbott and this harassment while we all mourn,” the man claimed at the time.
The story appears be entirely fictional. A spokesperson for Abbott called the claims “completely false,” and the account holder of My Cancer Journey reported that his account was hacked and that he had no family members in Uvalde.
“Somebody somehow got into my account,” he said.
A number of journalists fell for it, however.
Far-left political commentator Keith Olbermann tweeted:
“The nightmare continues. The DOJ needs to prosecute the office of Texas Governor @GregAbbott_TX for malfeasance and intimidation. Read this thread. I’m speechless.”
Olbermann apologized later, saying CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale was confident that the claim was false.
These viral tweets about Uvalde and Abbott have now been deleted. After speaking by phone minutes ago to a man linked to the Twitter account, who refused to answer a bunch of questions, I’m confident in saying there’s no reason to think the story was anything but fiction. pic.twitter.com/WKsviUec8h

MY TAKE: Hahahahahaha.
Here’s something that’s not so funny. Biden struck out today while addressing the US Naval Academy’s Class of 2022. First, he decided to do his creep-o whispering routine. Second, he thought he had to remind the graduates that he will be their commander-in-chief (they are well aware). Third, he instructs them not to ask him any tough questions. What? Then to really put a pin in it, he drops the ball several more times. If you haven’t seen this story & video, take a look:
One more story to lighten things up:
