LeBron Out For Another Week At Least

LeBron is still out for the count and will be for at least another week.

He’s been out since Christmas day due to straining the left side of his groin against the Warriors. He’ll be missing the Lakers’ upcoming two games against the Wolves and the Mavs. He’ll also sit when they play the Knicks on Friday night.

The only win in LeBron’s absence came against a Kings team that’s lost three straight. Looks like we shouldn’t be so quick to scoff at his GOAT comment.

Virginia Congresswoman Brings Trans Flag to Capitol Hill

One congresswoman is letting the country know exactly who she came to fight for and support. Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-VA) placed the transgender flag right next to the Virginia state flag outside of her office.

“The trans community has been under attack,” Wexton, who is an aunt to a transgender child, told Washingtonian. “I wanted to show my solidarity because we are talking about my friends and family.”

We’re looking forward to seeing the amazing things she’ll be doing for our country on the hill.
