According to those who had the unfortunate displeasure of watching Monday evening’s New Years Eve coverage on NBC, the show hosted by Leslie Jones, Chrissy Teigen and Carson Daly was a complete flop.
“NBC this is the worst New Years Eve show EVER!!!” said one Twitter user.

Apparently, former supermodel Teigen went on tirade – pre-approved by NBC, mind you – about something called “vaginal steaming,” which included the network airing photos of the procedure.
@NBC Vaginal steaming? Really? WTF? Bringing New Years eve to a new low. The whole night has been whacked.

Thousands of others shared this sentiment.
Daly (who tis apparently still alive) had an existential crisis on air, questioning all of his life decisions. The horribly unfunny Jones, known more for her Twitter feud with Milo Yiannopoulos than for her role in the all-female “Ghostbusters” remake, a box office flop, also managed to poke Teigen in the eye with her umbrella.
All of this culminated in the network failing to air the countdown and the ball drop, which is supposed to be the climax of the show. The three hosts were apparently busy blathering on about, well, God knows what.
A Twitter user summed the program up thusly:
Is anybody else watching this NBC New Years Eve shit or am I just on acid?

Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
Operation Desert Storm…in the jungles of…Vietnam. https://t.co/QEr698vhJ4
