Full Frontal Thursday: Weinstein, Women’s Health Care Rollback, and Finnish Fake News

Funny how bible-thumpers don’t see that they really are just as restrictive of women’s rights as the Muslims they hate – perhaps even more so – but why let little things like facts and reality get in the way?

And finally, Sam’s token Brit takes a trip to Finland, since she’s the only member of the crew who would be allowed inside the borders of that frigid, sub-Arctic locale. Now that I think about it, Sam and the other Canuck chick would be accepted, too…

Estee Portnoy, a spokeswoman for Jordan, told the Charlotte Observer that he was…
