1. Is violence about to explode in the Holy Land? The Orange One has reportedly informed the Palestinian Authority the US plans to move its Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem - a move the Palestinian Authority and the governments of many other nations have warned could lead to another Intifada. The US State Department has already issued a warning to Americans about potential violence. This could very well be the dumbest of many dumb things the Orange One has done so far as president.

2. Is banning Russia from the upcoming Winter Olympics the right call? The International Olympic Committee has banned Russia from the 2018 Winter Olympics. Individual Russian athletes can still compete if they pass drug tests and compete under a "neutral" Olympic flag.

3. Are women in the "alt-right" really surprised to find the (overwhelming majority of) men in their "movement" are raging misogynists? Shocker of the century.

4. Will anyone miss John Conyers? Not when the longtime US Congressperson has been accused of sexual harassment.

5. Is the future female? Yes - and partially thanks to older women who usually outlive men.
