The owner of the Red Hen explains why she asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave
“I’m not a huge fan of confrontation,” Wilkinson said. “I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals.”
Not much of a story, really, but hat's off to Wilkinson (the owner).

challenge: name one (1) good accomplishment of this administration (specifically potus) with no sarcasm or something that would be deemed detrimental to the administration's intended goals or intentions (which would be deemed a good accomplishment to those that opposed it or to which you do not agree with) :D

well "good" will be to each person's own perspective, hence the challenge. I won't go with the easy fairly recent pardon, I will go with the ban of federal funding to abortion overseas. to me that is "good", to others maybe not. the challenge is ONE good thing in YOUR eyes from the administration, specifically the potus. no matter which party you are affiliated with, or if you are affiliated with none, you can go through history of all American presidents and probably come to the conclusion that one thing was good in your eyes; hence the challenge, not everyone will agree with what one may consider a "good" thing that the administration has done, but just curious if those that oppose trump can at least support one thing; hence the challenge. And fredo yes, considering pros and cons is a horrible way to make decisions or form opinions, unless you have humorous jpeg :lol:

didn't watch it all but the first part is heartbreaking, didn't even want to watch anyone argue after that
