After the break, Gina begins the news talking about the cancelation of the rebooted Roseanne in response to her racist tweets. They also talk about the upcoming Las Vegas orgy having to change locations, Rachel Dolezal’s welfare fraud, and Amazon’s policy on banning people who return too many items.
