apologizes to Ariana Grande

Associated Press, by Staff

DETROIT — The bishop who officiated Aretha Franklin’s funeral apologized Friday to Ariana Grande for how he touched her onstage and a joke he made about her name. Bishop Charles H. Ellis III led Franklin’s funeral and awkwardly greeted Grande on stage after she performed “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” Images of the moment showed Ellis’ hand holding Grande well above her waist, with his fingers pressing against one side of her chest. The preacher apologized in an interview with The Associated Press at the cemetery where Franklin was interred late Friday. “It would never be my intention to touch any

First of all, she was dressed for entertainment and not a funeral. Second of all, the preacher is a leech. The both deserve each other (disgusting).

Thought the entire funeral was trashy. The gold coffin. Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson.. the reverence and his unacceptable behavior. The screaming that was called singing. Bill Clinton ogling. All these low lifes pushing and shoving to get in the front of the parade. Disappointing.

Also FTA: "Ellis also apologized to Grande, her fans and Hispanic community for making a joke about seeing her name on the program and thinking it was a new item on the Taco Bell menu." So did those in attendance gaffaw? Or were they aghast? Just wondering.

Last time I looked, the Funeral was at 6 1/2 hours. Not sure how long it actually was! WHO does that? Who would like to sit through that long of a funeral and why in the world did Franklin´s "people" think it was appropriate to do that? It was garish!

First, what Ariana did was wrong, at least at a funeral. The funeral was about Aretha Franklin, not selling your image or songs for money. It was also wrong for all those liberal anti American political hacks to use the death of a great singer, as a way to spew their hatred for our Constitution, personal freedom and anything sacred and moral. THEY HAD NO RIGHT to politicize Aretha Franklins funeral!!!
Second, Bill Clinton´s stares at Ariana, along with the other "guests", proves one thing... the utter stupidity and politicizing, done by the Gender Neutral crowd, who keep trying to convince us that there is no difference between men and women (done to justify perverted lifestyles). Sorry, but their is a difference... and thank GOD there is.
She was using her female sexuality to sell herself and her music and Bill was lusting after a cute, leg baring young woman. Both doing what is nature (but should be self controlled and curbed), in spite of the fact that both are Democrats and proponents of Gender Neutral ideology.

The really funny thing is that the pastor made a joke about her name sounding like an item on the Taco Bell menu, then apologized to the Hispanic community for the joke. In case anyone cares, Ariana Grande is 100% Italian! Her family is half from Abruzzo and half from Sicily, it´s all out there. She was raised in Florida and speaks (and sings) in Spanish at times, perpetuating the Hispanic myth. This makes the pastor many times more ignorant than he already is - making assumptions about race and ethnicity based on a name.

A federal judge barred the Trump administration on Monday from refusing asylum to immigrants who cross the southern border illegally. U.S. District Judge Jon S. Tigar issued a temporary restraining order after hearing arguments in San Francisco. The request was made by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights, which quickly sued after President Donald Trump issued the ban this month in response to the caravans of migrants that have started to arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border.

An aspiring film actress on Monday filed a restraining order against lawyer Michael Avenatti – just days after he was detained by police on domestic violence charges, according to court records obtained by The Blast. Mareli Miniutti, an actress who appeared in Ocean’s 8, filed the domestic violence restraining order Monday in Los Angeles, the report said. It wasn’t immediately clear if Miniutti was the woman who accused Avenatti of domestic violence last week. Miniutti did not immediately respond to Fox News´ request for comment.

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to hear a case next year about whether the Constitution permits a 40-foot cross honoring World War I veterans on a traffic island in Bladensburg, Md. Lawyers seeking to preserve the war memorial appealed the case to the high court months ago. But after Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, the lawyers began planning to emphasize additional arguments, said Ken Klukowski, a lawyer at First Liberty Institute, a conservative legal group representing the American Legion, a veterans group involved in the case.

Rain is on its way to the Golden State. Firefighters battling the deadly wildfires raging at both ends of California will get some respite when a rainstorm hits Tuesday night into Wednesday, meteorologists said. Additional rounds of rain are expected in northern California, near the devastating Camp Fire, Thursday and Friday, according to Accuweather Senior Meteorologist Mike Doll. “The rain mid- to late week will greatly aid crews battling the Camp Fire,” said Doll. Southern California, where the destructive Woolsey Fire is raging, will also see rain midweek, but not as much as northern and central areas of the state.

Georgia Gov.-elect Brian Kemp should not be treated as a “normal head of the state” because of allegations of voter suppression during this month´s election, a former ethics chief for the Obama administration said Sunday. Norm Eisen, who also served as U.S. ambassador to the Czech Republic from 2011 to 2014, was responding to allegations about Georgia´s gubernatorial race that were posted on Twitter by Ari Berman, a writer for liberal publications such as Mother Jones and the Nation.

Looking out the window on icy snow this cold, gray mid-November morning, it is hard not to make the comparison. Minneapolis is looking more and more like Moscow on the Mississippi. Predictions by global warming enthusiasts not withstanding, the weather is not the only similarity. A grayness hovers over Minnesota like a fog. It is a heaviness. It feels oppressive. The gray funk resulting from the reality that the Left has strengthened its grip on this state and its government. The Governor-elect wasted little time announcing that we should brace for the jolt of a hefty tax increase on gasoline.

The 2018 World Scrabble Championship was held last month in London. The champion, 51-year old Nigel Richards, played “groutier” (meaning “sulky”) for the winning 68 points. This was Mr. Richards’s fourth world title in English Scrabble; he also took the French Scrabble title this year for the second time, even though he doesn’t speak French. If Mr. Richards’s dominance of competitive Scrabble is clear, there is a less noticed but more significant pattern in the game: Since the World Scrabble Championship began in 1991, all winners have been male. The North American Scrabble Championship has had one female winner

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. That age-old advice about the distinction between freedom and wisdom came to mind as I read the ruling that requires the White House to reissue media credentials to CNN blowhard Jim Acosta. Federal Judge Timothy Kelly said Acosta must be allowed to return because there was no due process in the decision to suspend him. Kelly, appointed by President Trump, emphasized he wasn’t ruling on the merits of the suspension or Acosta’s behavior, only the process.

The number of people who remain missing in the wake of a pair of ferocious wildfires that have been blazing across both ends of California for more than a week spiked to nearly 1,300 late Saturday.

Officials said that 63 of the remains have been positively identified so far.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that Brown is proposing one of the most significant changes to the state´s logging rules in nearly half a century. "Gov.

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term.

Arrogant Obama accused President Trump of ignoring the climate change hoax because he’s a racist with mommy issues. “The reason we don’t” invest in climate change policies, Obama said, “is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism…mommy issues.” The audience of drones laughed after Obama trashed Trump.

The watchdog group also wanted top Clinton aides and State Department officials, including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills´, deposition videos made public.
