President Trump- We’re Trying Hard For Peace

It’s definitely been a melancholy week with the horrific event at the Ariana Grande concert. While President Donald Trump was overseas, he did still make remarks regarding the incident.

Now, Trump has taken to Twitter to share a tweet regarding his trip and a tweet that seems to be reflective on his trip (as well as relevant in the aftermath of what’s happened).

“Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Middle East were great,” Trump shared. “Trying hard for PEACE. Doing well. Heading to Vatican & Pope, then #G7 and #NATO.”

“All civilized nations must join together to protect human life and the sacred right of our citizens to live in safety and in peace,” Trump added.

This week’s awful incident has sadly reminded us, yet again, how prevalent the threat of terrorism is and how much better it would be if there was peace in the world. We support our President working towards that.

Al Gore Honored To Have Movie At Cannes

Former Vice President Al Gore appeared at the Cannes Film Festival to debut his new film, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power about climate change.

Gore claimed he was honored to have his movie at Cannes and spent a good deal of time praising the recently elected President Emmanuel Macron.

“Yes things are in a state of constant flux in the world and here in France I was very happy- and if it’s not in politic- relieved when President Macron was elected,” Gore shared.

While we don’t necessarily see Gore ever running for President again, we definitely think he’s found his niche with being an advocate for issues regarding climate change. Rock on, Al!

Al Gore – A President Can’t Stop The Climate Movement

Former Vice President Al Gore recently appeared in Cannes, France, for the premiere of An Inconvenient Sequel, a sequel to An Inconvenient Truth, his documentary on climate change.

When speaking about President Donald Trump and his administration’s stance on climate change, Gore said, “We now know after four months of the Trump administration that no one person- not even a President- can stop the climate movement. We have seen large states like California and New York and many others now making faster progress than the commitments made by former President Obama during the Paris agreement.”

“One of the most conservative Republican cities in America has agreed- not only agreed to go to 100% renewable energy, they have just accomplished it in the heart of the oil country,” he added. “Not because they use the slogans about global warming, but because it’s economically beneficial to them.”

While we agree with Gore, specifically on the point that one person can’t stop a movement, it almost seems like he gives Trump’s administration credit in comparison to the Obama administration, and that’s certainly not something we expected to see.

Trump Speaks Out On Manchester Bombing, Calls Attackers Evil Losers In Life

Last night, a horrific event took place at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, when a bomb went off towards the end of the concert that killed people.

President Donald Trump, who is currently overseas in Israel, spoke out about the tragedy.

While he offered prayers to those affected by the events, he stated that, “So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life.”

“I won’t call them monsters,” he added of the attackers, “because they would like that term. They would think that’s a great name. I will call them, from now on, losers, because that’s what they are, they’re losers.”

In later remarks, Trump called for “all civilized nations” to “obliterate this evil ideology.”

Our thoughts and prayers remain with the victims of this terrible tragedy.

Weekly Trump Dump – 10 Most Outrageous Things President Donald Trump Said And Did This Week

As always, it’s been another interesting week- to say the least- living in Trump’s America. Let’s get right into our weekly Trump Dump, the 10 most outrageous things our President said and did this week.

  • Trump gave his first commencement speech as President to Liberty University, making sure to take time out to condemn Washington.
  • Speaking of graduation speeches, Trump also spoke to the graduates of the United States Coast Guard Academy and took time to talk about how badly he’s treated. Specifically, he said, “Look at the way I have been treated lately, especially by the media. No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down, you can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams.”
  • Trump was outed for having shared information with Russian officials which he- unsurprisingly- defended.
  • Trump misspelled the word counsel in a tweet, spelling it as “councel.” It took him approximately two hours to correct this.
  • At a press conference yesterday, a question was asked regarding if Trump had asked former FBI Director James Comey to stop or slow an investigation into Michael Flynn. Trump brazenly responded, “No. No. Next question.”
  • In the same news conference, Trump called the investigation into what exactly has gone down between Trump’s administration and Russia, Trump called it out for being a witch hunt. Specifically, he said, “The entire thing has been a witch hunt. There is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign, but I can always speak for myself and the Russians, zero. I think it divides the country. I think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things.”
  • Trump calling it a witch hunt was similar to a tweet he issued yesterday morning- where he used the same terminology- tweeting, “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”
  • According to a report from The Hill this morning, Trump’s approval rating is currently at 41%.
  • While this wasn’t something said, staunch conservative Ann Coulter called him out this week, stating that, “The Trump-haters were right. It’s a nightmare.”
  • Finally, there’s been lots of talk regarding “impeaching” Trump this week and, shockingly, he’s not directly responded to any of it.

There’s certainly been a lot to digest this week in Trump’s America. See you next week, as we’re sure there will be lots more.

Anthony Weiner Admits Guilt In Sexting Scandal, Has To Register As Sex Offender

While Anthony Weiner‘s been caught up with a sexting scandal for quite some time now. According to a report from ABC News, Weiner admitted today that he did send “obscene material” to a 15 year old girl.

The report also mentions that Weiner turned himself into the FBI this morning and that he pled guilty to a “single count of transferring obscene material to a minor.”

Due to the fact that his sexting was with a minor, he will have to register as a sex offender and also is giving his iPhone up.

As the report notes, he agreed to 21-27 months behind bars, but will get out on a $150,000 bail bond. His ultimate fate will be decided in September. Once sentenced, it is possible he could face more jail time.
