Boner (Round One) for September 14th, 2017

Boner Candidate #1: NOW EVERYONE IS CALLING ME BUSTY McBUSTERSON

A Missouri teenager says a high school teacher told her during class that she was too “busty” and that “plus-sized women” need to shop at stores that sell larger clothing. The confrontation happened last Friday, an attorney for Kelsey Anderson said in a statement released Tuesday, and the 17-year-old was sent to the office at Joplin High School for a dress code violation.

Senator Ron Wyden (D-Oregon), the top Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, said in an interview with ABC News that Mnuchin’s request for a government jet on his honeymoon defies common sense. “You don’t need a giant rulebook of government requirements to just say yourself, ‘This is common sense, it’s wrong,'” Wyden said. “That’s just slap your forehead stuff.”
