A woman receiving SSDI welfare sparked outrage this week after sharing a video featuring an animal reaping the benefits of the U.S. welfare system.
The video went viral, but the original video was later yanked from YouTube.
The unnamed woman in the video can be seen visiting a grocery store, where she purchases two lobster tails with her EBT card.
Addressing minimum wage, the woman mocks how long the grocery store employee would have to work in order to pay for the $13.98 lobster tails — nearly 2 hours — and points out that the minimum wage workers then have to pay taxes, which end up going to people who receive handouts like her.
Later at home, the woman brings out her two mobile phones. One, she says, is her own phone, and the other was provided by the government. She then compares her two phones to that which the grocery store employee had — a flip phone that probably gets shut off all of the time because the employee can’t afford to pay her bills.
Toward the end of the video, the woman admits that she receives Social Security Disability Insurance for depression, and feeds her dog the lobster tails.
“This is my Coach keychains,” she says as she pulls a set of keys out of her purse. “These three keychains here, they cost more than those minimum wage people’s f***ing car payment.”
Laughing, she adds, “Well actually, most of them don’t even have f***ing cars, they’re using f***ing public transportation!”
The woman then mentions that she’s on social security for depression.
“I’m on social security for depression,” she says. “Depression is a disability. So if you’re too depressed to work full-time, apply for social security.”
Concluding the video, she says, “So, this is what the minimum wage people will pay for is for me to give lobster to my f***ing dog and make a YouTube video about it mocking them.”
The liberal women on “The View” tried to pivot the conversation to President Donald Trump while discussing accusations of sexual assault against Democratic Sen. Al Franken.
News anchor Leeann Tweeden accused Sen. Franken of forcibly kissing her during a USO entertainment tour in 2006, and shared a photo that shows Franken groping her breasts while she was sleeping.
“I certainly don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann,” Sen. Franken said in a statement. “As to the photo, it was clearly intended to be funny but wasn’t. I shouldn’t have done it.”
The women of “The View” gave Franken credit for apologizing and then Joy Behar tried to switch the conversation to talk about Trump.
“What about Trump, his people are saying that those women who accused him are liars!” Behar exclaimed.
Conservative panelist Meghan McCain responded, “oh my god, this isn’t about Trump right now though,” clearly fed up with Behar’s insistence on making every conversation about the president.
“This is serious. I know her. And when you’re saying ‘what about Trump, what about Trump,’ this is about Leeann!” McCain said exasperatedly. “This is an epidemic…bipartisan, across party lines.”
Sunny Hostin chimed in to save Behar, stating, “I think Joy’s point is that we’ve talked about, you know, do politicians get a pass. You know, we heard the Hollywood Access tape and his accusers, 16 of them.”
The stunning video, captured with a Nest security camera, shows the moment an object appears over the city. It at first appears a tiny orb in the night sky, before quickly blossoming to become a massive flash that illuminates the clouds
The City of Phoenix, AZ’s security camera spotted the mysterious flash last night
People in Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, and New Mexico reported sightings
While many have claimed it could be a UFO, it’s likely a meteor passing through
A mysterious bright flash tore across the Phoenix sky last night, sparking fresh fears of UFOs and alien invaders.
But, it’s likely the fireball was a tiny chunk of space rock burning up in our atmosphere.
The remarkable object was spotted by numerous people in the area, with reports streaming in from Arizona and the surrounding states, including California, Nevada, Utah and New Mexico.
Something BRILLIANT just flew across the Phoenix sky around 8:30 this evening!’ the City of Phoenix, AZ tweeted last night.
‘Check out what our Phoenix City Cam Captured! Look to the right of this screen.’

Excited observers were quick to share their own stories, too.
‘We saw the sky light up not far from Flagstaff!,’ Twitter user Debora Lee Soltez wrote in reply.
‘We were driving north, so didn’t see the meteor, just the sky lighten up then the flash…bright enough to see the trees along the road’
You remember Wendy Davis, right? She’s the one who attempted to filibuster an abortion law in Texas, lost, but was celebrated by the Left for yammering on in pink shoes in order to protect infanticide. She then parlayed that into a run for Texas, in which she again lost. Got smoked! And now she tries this
Wendy Davis: Why Women Shouldn’t Shut Up About Gun Violence
Women are disproportionately affected by guns in America, and now they’re leading the fight for gun control.
Let’s be clear about what’s going on here. These headlines, these senseless killings, are about people using guns to kill people and therefore, this is a “guns situation” (as President Trump denied in reference to the recent shooting at the small church in Sutherland Springs, Texas). And because the majority of mass shooting incidents — at least 54 percent — in the United States involve domestic violence, it’s a “violence against women situation” as well. (And that doesn’t even count the mass shooters who have committed acts of domestic violence in the past and then later go on to shoot and kill people who are not in their domestic circle, as was the case in Sutherland Springs.)
That 54% is a pretty loose statistic. Regardless this is a women situation or something
While gun safety may not seem like a feminist issue at first blush, it doesn’t take too much digging to see that women are uniquely vulnerable to and disproportionately the victims of gun violence. As former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords (herself a survivor of gun violence) has eloquently said: “Dangerous people with guns are a threat to women. Criminals with guns. Abusers with guns. Stalkers with guns. That makes gun violence a women’s issue. For mothers, for families, for me and you.”
What better way to protect women than a gun? Which is why women have been one of the largest groups purchasing firearms the past few years. Because a whistle doesn’t work.

The terror group ISIS has made a chilling threat against the Vatican just weeks before tens of thousands of faithful gather there to celebrate Christmas.
A pro-ISIS propaganda channel made the threat in a poster depicting a car attack.
The poster – reading “Christmas blood” – depicts a masked jihadi driving a BMW towards St Peter’s Basilica, where Pope Francis holds mass.
An assault rifle and a rucksack are visible on the seat next to the driver, who is using a sat nav and driving at high speed.
