If there was one thing that our politically divided country could agree on, it was the seriousness of drunk driving. But during Monday’s edition of The Lead, that common understanding took a back seat for CNN as they bemoaned that a so-called “DREAMer” was deported. “Last August [Jorge] Matadamas was charged with drunk driving and evading arrest.

In advance of the Monday evening premiere of the CBSN Originals documentary Gender: The Space Between, CBSNews.com published propaganda pieces promoting the radical left’s perverted LGBT agenda.

Taking a break from tweeting against the President Donald Trump, comedian Sarah Silverman lashed out at a new target: “evil” banks and “BIG OIL.”
"As long as my money is in a big bank, I am part of the problem,” Silverman argued. “And those banks are investing in big oil. They’re scratching each other’s balls.”

In it, she sympathized with fellow pipeline opponents who felt “helpless” because Trump recently approved construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
