    After Years Of Attacking Michelle Obama, Hannity Aghast That GOP Candidates’ Wives Are Being Attacked
    March 29, 2016 9:20 AM EDT
    MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

    Fox News host Sean Hannity criticized Republican presidential candidates for bringing “families and wives” into the race and getting distracted from other issues following recent attacks between Republican candidates on their wives, contradicting years of his attacks against first lady Michelle Obama.

    Hannity has frequently attempted to smear the first lady over the years by ridiculing her comments encouraging kids to go to college, claiming she had a “deep rooted anger” and “bitterness” about American race relations, and repeatedly attempting to smear her as “unpatriotic.” His show has also frequently featured guests attacking Michelle Obama on a litany of fronts, including her health initiatives and her disposition.

    Despite Hannity’s frequent attacks on Michelle Obama, during the March 28 edition of Fox News’ Hannity, the host said that by bringing wives and family members into play the Republican primary was beginning to “coalesce around the wrong things we ought to be talking about” adding “for the life of me, I don’t understand when families and wives are brought into it”:

    Enormous document leak exposes offshore accounts of world leaders

    A massive leak of more than 11.5 million documents exposed the offshore accounts of current and former world leaders, The Center for Public Integrity reported Sunday.

    The investigation of the files, known as the Panama Papers, was published Sunday by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.

    The investigation “exposes a cast of characters who use offshore companies to facilitate bribery, arms deals, tax evasion, financial fraud and drug trafficking,” according to the website.

    “Behind the email chains, invoices and documents that make up the Panama Papers are often unseen victims of wrongdoing enabled by this shadowy industry.”

    The report exposes hidden information about how banks and lawyers hide dealings with people such as prime ministers, plutocrats and criminals.

    The documents have information about Russian President Vladimir Putin, details about England’s gold heist in 1983 and information about bribery allegations regarding soccer’s governing body, FIFA.

      Good Morning Ametia and SG2 :)

      I just learned of Boscoe Hunter, artist and musician.

      From Wikipedia:

      Boscoe Holder (16 July 1921 – 21 April 2007), born Arthur Aldwyn Holder in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, of Barbadian descent in part, was Trinidad and Tobago’s leading contemporary painter, who also had a celebrated international career spanning six decades as a designer and visual artist, dancer, choreographer and musician. In 1948 he married the dancer Sheila Davis Clarke, daughter of radio personality Kathleen Davis (a.k.a. “Aunty Kay”), and their son Christian was born the following year. Christian Holder eventually became a leading dancer with the Joffrey Ballet and an artist in his own right.

      Living in London, England, during the 1950s and 1960s, Boscoe Holder has been credited with introducing limbo dancing and steel-pan playing to Britain, performing on British television and radio, in variety and nightclubs, in films, and at well-known theatres in the West End. His company also danced for Queen Elizabeth II at her coronation in 1953, and, in two years later, at Windsor Castle.

      He is considered one of the top painters from the Caribbean whose work is in many collections around the world. Particularly recognizable for his paintings of people of colour, relecting his appreciation of Caribbean people and culture,he often used his dancers as models, his favourite being his wife Sheila who was also lead dancer in his company.
