A new bombshell report from the Washington Post is shedding more light on the nationwide danger posed by labeling foods “exotic”… Claiming the term promotes “racism and xenophobia” towards other cultures.
“The first problem with the word is that, probably within the past two decades, it has lost its essential meaning. The second, more crucial problem is that its use, particularly as applied to food, indirectly lengthens the metaphysical distance between one group of humans and another, and, in so doing, reinforces xenophobia and racism,” writes the author.

–Like ethnic and alien, the word exotic was invented to describe something foreign. It comes from the Greek prefix, “exo,” or “outside.” It used to mean something “alien” or “foreign,” and though this is an archaic definition, it’s part of the word’s legacy. According to Merriam-Webster, in reference to food, its modern-day usage may describe something “introduced from another country,” “not native” or something “strikingly, excitingly, or mysteriously different.” The problem is that it’s a definition that changes based on the user’s perspective.

60 MINUTE MELTDOWN: Trump Rips Stahl, ‘You Should Interview Biden Like You Interview Me’
President Trump called-out 60 Minutes’ blatant media bias during his fiery interview last week; saying host Lesley Stahl “should interview Biden like you interview me.”
“I wish you would interview Joe Biden like you interview me, it would be so good… He’s in the midst of a scandal,” said the President.
“No, he’s not! Come on!” said Stahl.
“Of course, he is. It’s the second biggest political scandal. The biggest scandal is when they spied on my campaign,” added Trump.
“There’s no real evidence of that! This is 60 Minutes, we can’t put on things we can’t verify. We can’t verify that! No!” claimed the reporter.

A NEW LOW: Media Suggests ‘Missing Melania’ a Result of Trump’s ‘DOMESTIC ABUSE’
The mainstream media’s full-fledged meltdown regarding President Trump took a disturbing turn this week, with some in the press suggesting Melania’s recovery from kidney surgery may be a cover-up to conceal “domestic abuse.”
Jamil Smith, a senior writer for Rolling Stone magazine, led the charge over the weekend, saying he “suspects” the First Lady’s absence could be the result of “concealing abuse.”
I wish that I didn’t suspect that the prolonged, poorly explained public absence of Melania Trump could be about concealing abuse. I wish that it was a ludicrous prospect. I wish that the @POTUS wasn’t a man with a history of abusing women, including those to whom he is married.

Atlantic senior editor David Frum also suggested the President may be using the Secret Service to help conceal potential abuse, writing “Suppose President Trump punched the First Lady in the White House (federal property = federal jurisdiction), then ordered the Secret Service to conceal the assault.”
Suppose President Trump punched the First Lady in the White House (federal property = federal jurisdiction), then ordered the Secret Service to conceal the assault. POTUS has Article II authority over Secret Service. Is that obstruction? Under Sekulow/Dowd, apparently NO

“Mainstream media members jumped the shark and took Trump Derangement Syndrome to new heights by concocting tales of domestic abuse when trying to determine first lady Melania Trump’s whereabouts before she showed up to a White House event on Monday night,” writes Fox News.
