Trump Retweeted A GIF Of Him Hitting Hillary Clinton With Golf Ball And Internet’s In Disbelief

Donald Trump is no stranger to Twitter tirades. The President took to social media yesterday for a series of disparate tweets but it’s one tweet against Hillary Clinton that has many stunned. As Vox shares, Trump retweeted a GIF showing himself hitting Clinton with a golf ball.

“Donald Trump’s amazing golf swing #CrookedHillary,” the original tweet says. In it, Trump is seen swinging a golf ball. Then Clinton is shown from behind boarding a plane and falling down.

Trump has been vocal about his displeasure of Clinton even after the election has ended. During the campaign, he referred to her as “Crooked Hillary” and encouraged his followers to “lock her up!” Pundits pointed to this retweet as his endorsement of escalating violence against his Democratic opponent.

“President of the United States fantasizing about inflicting violence on his defeated rival, the first female major party candidate for POTUS,” said Jeet Her of The New Republic. 

“Trump has a series

Trump condemns racist groups for deadly Virginia violence after days of criticism for failing to do so

WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Donald Trump on Monday answered two days of bipartisan furor over his initial response to deadly protests in Charlottesville, Va., with a statement for the first time explicitly blaming white supremacists for the “racist violence” over the weekend.

“Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans,” the president said in a brief statement, reading from a teleprompter at the White House.

“To anyone who acted criminally in this weekend’s racist violence, you will be held fully accountable. Justice will be delivered,” Trump said.

The president’s statement was a hastily arranged do-over that implicitly acknowledged the need to stanch the self-inflicted damage his first reaction had caused him and his administration. Criticism and outrage had continued to build, including among Republicans, to Trump’s

First Lady Melania Trump is unable to leave the hotel where she is staying due to violent protests in Hamburg, Germany, according to NBC News.  Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s communications director, said Hamburg police refused to clear Mrs. Trump from leaving her residence Friday morning due to the ongoing street violence.

Early Friday morning The First Lady tweeted out “Thinking of those hurt in #Hamburg protests. Hope everyone stay safe! #G20.” The Slovenian-born former model and her husband, President Donald Trump, arrived in Hamburg Thursday, ahead of his much-anticipated meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin today.

Trump Describes His Health Care Bill As "Mean"

At a lunch meeting with Republican senators, President Donald Trump described the version of his healthcare plan passed by the House as “mean.” It’s unclear as to what, exactly, he meant by the use of that specific adjective, although it does seem to directly contradict his other statements on the issue.

According to CNN, Trump has been urging the Senate to “add more money” to the bill recently passed by the House — although, again, what he means by that is unclear. Trump has similarly urged the Senate to make the bill more “generous, kind (and) with heart.”

It seems like Trump is hoping that revisions to the bill made by the Senate will be significant, despite having celebrated the bill’s passing in its current state. He previously described the bill as “incredibly well crafted.”

“He made pretty clear that he thinks the House bill leaves people — many of which probably make

Teacher Suspended After Pro-Trump Yearbook Photos Altered

A New Jersey teacher has been suspended after yearbook photos were mysteriously altered to remove pro-Donald Trump messages. According to the Associated Pressthe yearbook adviser has been suspended while an investigation goes on.

As NJ.com shares, students’ t-shirts featuring pro-Trump messages like: “Trump. Make America Great Again” appear to have been photoshopped in the Wall Township High School yearbook. Superintendent Cheryl Dyer told the publication that the investigation is ongoing but there’s “no evidence to suggest that students were involved” in the altering. According to parents, at least two students wore Trump shirts in their photos which were edited.

“This is just about the issue of censorship,” said Joe Berardo, whose son’s shirt was changed. “The kids should know that they can’t be censored, unless it’s rude or inappropriate. And from the teaching side of it, I think teachers have to understand that the kids don’t check their rights at the door.”

The father met with school

What is covfefe? President Trump’s late night typo sparks criticism, laughter

It looks like the late-night Tweeter in Chief has struck again.

Around midnight Tuesday, President Donald Trump sent out a strange message that read “Despite the negative press covfefe.” Nothing else was added to the tweet, which remained on the president’s Twitter feed into the overnight hours, picking up more than 53,000 retweets and 65,000 “likes.”

#covfefe quickly shot to the top of the trending list on Twitter.

No explanation was given for the Tweet and no correction was immediately issued. The “covfefe” usage quickly became a sensation on social media, with even the Merriam-Webster dictionary joining in the definition fun.

Trump has been easing Obama-era gun restrictions

By Anita Kumar

McClatchy Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON, D.C. — With little attention, President Donald Trump’s administration has been quietly loosening firearms restrictions in the United States after successfully seeking the support of gun owners on the campaign trail.

His agencies narrowed the definition of “fugitive,” a change that cuts the number of people who’ll be included in a database designed to keep firearms from people who are barred from owning them.

Federal officials have also signaled that they may no longer defend the Army Corps of Engineers’ ban on carrying loaded firearms and ammunition on federal lands.

Trump signed a bill behind closed doors that killed an Obama-era regulation that required the government to add to the no-buy list people whom the Social Security Administration has deemed eligible for mental disability payments. He signed another one that lifted restrictions on hunting on federal lands in Alaska.

While Trump promotes military buildup, some look at another round of base closings

WASHINGTON, D.C. — At the same time that President Donald Trump is pushing a plan to increase defense spending by 10 percent, Washington state Rep. Adam Smith says it’s time to save money by closing some of the nation’s military bases.

Smith, the top Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, wants to reopen the controversial Base Realignment and Closure process, known as BRAC, last used in 2005.

While the 11th-term congressman has promoted base closings before with no luck, there are signs that the idea is getting increased attention this year on Capitol Hill.

“We ought to give it serious consideration,” Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in an interview Tuesday.

And South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, another member of the panel, sounded receptive to the idea as well, saying: “I’ll follow Senator McCain’s lead on this.”

Smith said that with McCain’s backing, “it makes

Caitlyn Jenner Got Dragged To Hell For Acting Surprised That Trump Attacked The Trans Community

Rich people will almost always prioritize being rich over any other concern, and Caitlyn Jenner is a textbook case from the presidential election. Jenner was a vocal supporter of Donald Trump, and seemed to think that she could be the voice of reason in his ear on trans issues. Keep her money and protect the rights of LGBTQ people at the same time! Turns out you actually can’t deal with the Devil and Donald Trump cannot hear voice of reason.

This week, Donald Trump personally pressured Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos into rescinding protections for trans students. Much like a child, Trump is still obsessed with where other people go pee-pee. Unfortunately, where people go to the bathroom is a serious matter. Using public facilities that align with your gender identity is a basic right, it’s something that transgender people have been doing
