Bill O’Reilly Sexual Harassment Retirement Party

Bill O'Reilly

Bill O’Reilly joined Roger Ailes in enforced retirement on Wednesday. Both were accused of sexual harassment.

Not to worry though. CNN Money says O’Reilly’s golden parachute falls just a little south of the $25 million contract he recently signed. That compares to his former boss’s $40 million bail out.

Bill O’Reilly Sexual Harassment Charges Lift All Boats

Also, there’s a trickle down payout effect. The NYT says O’Reilly and Fox paid about $13 million to various women who accused him of sexual harassment. He admits nothing.

The cutline on my first sketch for this cartoon read, “You just got x-rayed, searched, and groped… now you’re surprised we’re taking your seat?!”

But I changed it when I read that United CEO Oscar Munoz said the airline “re-accomodated” the lucky passengers.

CNBC reports Munoz was named communicator of the year by a public relations group in March.

War on Coal

Trump ended Obama’s war on coal, as promised. Come to think of it, I don’t know why Obama declared the war in the first place. Or why Hillary signed on for it. The natural gas industry went to war against coal for them. Gas is cheap, clean, and – despite President Obama’s efforts – plentiful.

So, looks like a rout.

Sanctuary Cities Federal Funds

Attorney General Sessions says sanctuary cities are violating the law. So he plans to punish them by withholding federal funds.

They say that’s against the law.

United Leggings

United Airlines created a social media uproar when it kicked two teenage girls off a flight for wearing leggings. Turns out you can wear all the leggings you want.  Even if you’re Caitlyn Jenner. The girls were subject to a dress code because they were flying free on an employee pass.
