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. Authorities believe as many as 10,000 protestors have besieged the German city during the G20 summit meeting of world leaders this week.
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. CNN reports the spouses of various G-20 leaders were scheduled to tour a climate change center in Hamburg today before embarking on a leisurely cruise down the Elbe
An armed man wearing a bulletproof vest tried to talk his way into Trump Tower to see Ivanka Trump, daughter of President Donald Trump. New York’s ABC7 reports 52-year-old Adames Benitez of The Bronx was taken into custody by Secret Service agents Thursday afternoon. Ivanka Trump was not in the luxury apartment building at the time as she is in Germany, accompanying her father in her role as an advisor during the G20 summit meeting of international leaders.
Police say Benitez told agents he was a U.S. senator and wanted to talk to Ms. Trump about her dress line, according to New York’s Daily News. He also claimed to own the building at one point. After being searched, Secret Service discovered a bulletproof vest
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
A New Jersey teacher has been suspended after yearbook photos were mysteriously altered to remove pro-Donald Trump messages. According to the Associated Press, the yearbook adviser has been suspended while an investigation goes on.
As NJ.comshares, 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.”
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.
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
President Donald Trumpand his team have been laughably upset over stores like Nordstromand TJ Maxx distancing themselves from his daughter Ivanka Trump‘s clothing and accessory lines. The President even took the time out of his busy day to call out the high-end retailer for their “unfair” treatment of his scion:
Donald may have thought his tweet would discourage people from shopping at the store, but turns out the publicity might have beeen pretty good for the company, seeing as their stock is on the rise. Teen Vogue noted that despite a brief dip following the tweet, Nordstrom’s stock has gone up almost five percent since the start of the day. (Other companies have suffered worse fates following petty social media attacks from the POTUS, with Lockheed Martin, General Motors, and Toyota stocks falling after Trump’s criticisms.)
“We’ve said all along we make buying decisions based on
Have you been thinking about burning the American flag lately? If so, you might want to get to it before Donald Trump is inaugurated in January, because on Monday morning he was wide awake and tweeting about taking away some rights.
“Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!” he tweeted.
Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!
It is, of course, completely unconstitutional to jail someone for burning a flag, because it’s a form of protest protected under the First Amendment. You also can’t perfunctorily strip people of their citizenship based on 140 characters. But we live in a crazy world where
Barron Trump hasn’t spent much time in the public eye, but that’s most likely because he is 10 years old. Donald Trump’s other children have been pretty front and center throughout his campaign, especially his beloved Ivanka. Naturally, people are curious about the youngest of his brood. During Barron’s public appearances on TV, flanking his father during a live broadcast late at night, he appears to be yawning and grimacing. This is pretty normal behavior for a tired kid, but since he is so infrequently seen, it attracted a lot of attention.
An unnamed man posted a video to YouTube that suggests Barron has autism, based on these brief appearances. The man who created the vid has autism himself, and was diagnosed when he was five years old. Rosie O’Donnell, who is no fan of Donald Trump (nor he of her), shared
It hasn’t even been a month since Donald Trump lost the popular vote but won the Electoral College, and therefore has stepped us over into the Twilight Zone to become the president-elect of the USA. Eh, you know what? It’s not even a nightmarish other realm. It’s our very real, very current situation—a buildup of fear, selfishness, and just plain ignorance that translated to votes for Donny. And you couldn’t even scream “give him a chance”before he started to add known anti-Semitic and racist members to his cabinet, allowed his daughter to be a part of top-secret meetings and started tweeting about our 1st amendment right to protest.
But hey! The good news is that…the holidays are here. If your family is of the same political viewpoint as you, awesome! You might be able to have a great holiday, one where you talk about what you’re thankful for this year. You might
