How about them apples?

Except for leadership positions, every member of Congress earns $174,000 taxpayer dollars annually.

Of course that’s way too much, but that’s a story for another day.

Freshman Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw, the Navy SEAL whose war wounds were made fun of by “Saturday Night Live,” just made a widely-praised announcement about his salary during the government shutdown.

Freshly sworn-in Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw is not just talking the talk, but walking the walk. The popular Texas congressman announced Thursday that he will not be taking a paycheck until the security at the southern border is properly funded and the government shutdown ends.

He wrote:

I cannot in good conscience get paid while federal employees’ financial futures hang in the balance because of this partial government shutdown. I’ve asked the Chief Administrative Officer to withhold my pay until we have come to an agreement to adequately fund border security.

Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) called for members of Congress to not accept their pay during a shutdown, but she has yet to make an announcement similar to Crenshaw’s…

“Saturday Night Live” castmate Pete Davidson lost his father, a firefighter, on 9/11.

Since then, Davidson has been to rehab for drugs and admitted to having mental health issues.

Pete was engaged to singer Ariana “I hate America” Grande, but the two have since parted ways.

“Disgusting” Pete and SNL had no problem whatsoever openly mocking then-Congressional candidate Crenshaw’s war wounds.

Check out Crenshaw’s excellent response:

The full clip:

SNL may have just lost the remaining conservative viewers they might’ve still had.

On the other hand, Davidson is a comedian. His job is to tell jokes and not be politically correct, as Crenshaw implied.

Before departing to Texas on Thursday, President Trump spoke with the press outside of the White House.

He revealed what will happen if Republicans cave to Democrats on the border wall.

Trump: “I have the absolute right to declare a national emergency … I’m not prepared to do that yet, but if I have to, I will.

If this doesn’t work out, probably I will do it. I would almost say definitely.”

WATCH:

From The Hill:

The Democratic-led House approved a bill Wednesday to reopen the Treasury Department, Internal Revenue Service and Small Business Administration, among other federal agencies.

The chamber voted 240-188 to advance the measure, with eight Republicans bucking party lines to back the bill, which is the first of four bills expected to be brought to the floor by Democrats.

The Republicans who voted to advance the measure Wednesday included Reps. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), Will Hurd (Texas), Fred Upton (Mich.), John Katko (N.Y.), Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Greg Walden (Ore.), Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) and Herrera Beutler (Wash.).

Again, the names:

-Elise Stefanik (NY)

-Will Hurd (TX)

-Fred Upton (MI)

-John Katko (NY)

-Brian Fitzpatrick (PA)

-Greg Walden (OR)

-Adam Kinzinger (IL)

-Herrera Beutler (WA)

Save conservative media!

NBA legend Kobe Bryant’s death in January set us up for one of the craziest year’s in a long, long time. And to think, it’s not even halfway through! Think about it: Kobe died; Australia was set ablaze; Kim Jong-un died and came back to life; a friggin’ pandemic; murder hornets; riots; Yellowstone earthquakes; all in an election year.
