Trump just humiliated Melania and Barron while boarding Air Force One

The president is not a decent man. He’s repeatedly demonstrated an utter inability or simply an unwillingness to care about anything beyond his own turgid, unjustified ego. He’s a man who lives to tend to his own craven desires and base instincts.

Last night, Trump showed that his trademark selfishness means he won’t even extend some common courtesy to his own family. While boarding Air Force One to fly back from his umpteenth trip to Mar-a-Lago he hogged an umbrella for himself while his son Barron and First Lady Melania were pelted with harsh winds and rain, reports TMZ.

President Trump didn’t so much as tilt the umbrella to provide some basic cover to Barron and Melania, preferring instead to keep the entire thing to himself to shield his oft-mocked, easily mussed hair.

It was not only an unchivalrous display but a blatantly rude one. What kind of man would choose to shield himself from the elements over his own wife and child? It’s as if he sees his family as props rather than people, accouterments to help fashion an image for himself rather than loved ones that he actually cares about.

A gentleman would have offered the umbrella up or at the very least made sure there were extra umbrellas for his family. He is the president after all. It’s not as if obtaining two more of the simple objects is beyond his immense range of powers. The simple fact seems to be that he just didn’t care enough to request more for his wife and son.

It’s a small gesture but is a clear indication of the lack of moral fiber and basic consideration for others that infests our president. One can’t imagine President Obama doing something like this.

Michelle Obama just went to the beach and racist Trump fans are livid at her outfit

Republicans, trying to change the topic from what a rascist pig they elected President and the impending government shutdown that Trump is causing with his immigration intransigence, attacked former first lady Michelle Obama for wearing beach clothing to the beach. according to a new report on Opposing Views.

Yeah, that’s how Republicans celebrate Martin Luther King Day, making inappropriate accusations towards the first African-American woman to be first lady.

Michelle Obama was in Miami Beach with her daughter Malia when they headed out to the sand wearing an outfit wouldn’t get a second glance, much less blistering internet comments, from any of the other casually dressed tourists and locals present.

Dressed all in white at the beach, with fashionably ripped-denim cut-off shorts, a white blouse, and a black bandana, sunglasses, and hoop earrings, Mrs. Obama looked like she was perfectly dressed for a day at the beach, but Republican trolls were posting comments online like she was a homeless woman crashing a party at a 5 star hotel.

“The ripped white shorts! Hard to believe she was ever a First Lady,”one commenter wrote. “Getting too much inspiration from Beyonce, I think.”

“Totally inappropriate for her age and who she is,” said another. “Her daughter looks embarrassed. Rightly so!”

“Why holes on the white cut offs?.. looks a little trailer trash,” added another person who apparently hasn’t visited a mall in the last 20 years.

“The whole family has no class,” added another user. “Thank god they no longer represent us!”

This last comment is the most unbelievable of all given the current occupants of the White House. With Melania Trump’s past as a nude model, one has to wonder what their definition of “class” could possibly be.

Luckily more intelligent defenders of the former first lady came to the rescue in the comments section.

“I don’t think Michelle needs our approval,” one commenter wrote. “She is a self confident, elegant woman.”

“Former First Lady on holiday. So what?” another user asked. “She was in the public eye for long enough. Now leave her alone.”

“Not a fan but always liked her style. She does look great. So do her kids,” wrote another. “Family should be left out of politics.”

“To the commenters here that are along the lines of ‘And she is still headline news….why?’ I’ll tell you,” one perceptive reader explained. “People are pining for the days when they had a beautiful, intelligent, eloquent first family who had some decency.”

Now that’s an opinion that’s difficult to argue with.

Pence Furious And Visibly Shaken After Pastor Destroys Trump, Room Erupts With Applause (VIDEO)

The old joke about being as “nervous as a whore in church” took a whole new meaning on Sunday. Vice President Mike Pence sat in the pews at the Metropolitan Baptist Church in Largo, Maryland where he reportedly became “visibly red-faced” with embarrassment and shame after a black pastor called out his boss’s most recent racist remarks.

Last Thursday, during a meeting with lawmakers concerning immigration, Donald Trump reportedly blurted out:

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers.

“Why do we need more Haitians?” Trump said, according to people familiar with the meeting. “Take them out.”

According to reports, Trump later went on to suggest that the U.S. should try to let in more people from countries such as Norway.

With Pence in attendance, Pastor Dr. Maurice Watson called out Donald Trump over his “shithole” remarks during Sunday service. The pastor also took exception to Trump’s racial preference toward taking more white immigrants than people of color such as Haitians and Africans.

“I stand today as your Pastor to vehemently denounce and reject any such characterizations of the nations of Africa and of our brothers and sisters in Haiti,” Watson told his congregation as Pence looked on. “And I further say: Whoever made such a statement, whoever used such a visceral, disrespectful, dehumanizing adjective to characterize the nations of Africa… whoever said it, is wrong. And they ought to be held accountable.”

WUSA 9 reported that the vice president “became visibly red-faced at times throughout the speech,” despite the fact that Watson never mentioned Trump by name.

Other than his physical reaction to having his racist boss called out in church, Pence has yet to issue a statement addressing Trump‘s remarks. In fact, Politico reported that Pence’s strategy appears to pretend that nothing happened.

Instead, on Friday afternoon, Pence was tweeting pictures of himself and Trump with Martin Luther King Jr.’s nephew at a White House ceremony and hailing King’s “efforts to peacefully advocate for justice & equality for African-Americans.”

Pence’s visible shame in church speaks volumes for what the white-headed yellow-bellied coward doesn’t have the spine or moral fortitude to say to the public.

The Cabinet Official Who Has Kept Silent On Whether Trump Said ‘S***hole’ Now Sets the Record Straight

Have you noticed that the media has spent more time on President Donald Trump’s alleged comments on Haiti and African countries than it actually spent on the Clinton Foundations’s actions that left Haiti in a bad way? More time then on a truly historical event like the protests in Iran, a fight for freedom that everyone should encourage?

This despite the fact that Trump himself has denied he made the comments as reported and despite the fact that Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue have said definitively they were not made.

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin has said they were made but he has credibility issues and Republican Senator Lindsay Graham told Senator Tim Scott that’s ‘basically’ what was said but then when asked specifically, refused to confirm that.

Maybe Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen weighing in on the matter will help put it to rest.

Fox News host Chris Wallace pressed for what she knew since she was one of the few people in the meeting.

From Biz Pac Review:

“I don’t recall him saying that exact phrase,” Nielsen said.

“I’m just going to press back on you once on the subject,” Wallace responded. “It seems to me — you were in the meeting when these comments were made. I can understand you either saying they were said or they were not said.”

The Fox News host continued:

“It is pretty shocking language and to say ‘I don’t recall’ seems impossible. If the President of the United States used the word blank-hole talking about countries in the Oval Office or didn’t say it, I would know.”

But she refused, saying, “It was an impassioned conversation. I don’t recall that specific phrase being used. That’s all I can say about that.”

Wallace pushed that the comments, if made, must be racist because there was supposedly a comment about why shouldn’t we be taking more people from Norway.

“There are several things about the president’s comments … that disturbed people. One is the president seems to be writing off people who come from black countries while he’s saying we should take people coming from one of the whitest counties on Earth–Norway.”

15-Year-Old Black Student: MLK Would Be Proud of President Trump (VIDEO)

CJ Pearson, a 15-year-old high school sophomore, is gaining massive support online after presenting the case for why Martin Luther King Jr. would be proud of President Donald Trump.

Pearson has been blogging about politics since he was just eight years old.

In the video, which has been viewed nearly 30,000 times, the passionate student argues that President Trump “has done more for black folks in one year than Obama did in eight.”

“Under President Trump, black unemployment is at an all-time low. This is also a president who set his sights on saving inner cities across America, lowering the violent crime in these cities so that black babies aren’t scared to go play in the playground without the threat of being shot hanging over their head,” Pearson began. “He’s also focused on bringing jobs to these communities, bringing economic investments to these communities and bringing rising wages to these communities.”

“Something that President Obama never did in the entirety of his eight years in office,” Pearson states.

The young student from Georgia, who comes from a Democratic family, goes on to credit the president for his work to save historically black colleges.

“I would argue that President Trump has lead a presidency that Martin Luther King would be proud of — and it’s kind of funny to say because everyone in the media and everyone on the left is hellbent on accusing this president of being a racist, a bigot and all these other baseless accusations that have no merit at all,” Pearson asserts.

Pearson grows upset as he discusses accusations of Trump being racist, and fiercely defends the president.

“I as a black teenager, I saw the devastation that liberal policies have had within the black community, I have seen the hurt that they have caused,” Pearson emotionally demands. “I have seen the pain that President Obama’s inaction has caused in places like Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta and so forth and so on.”

The teen concludes that MLK and Trump share the common goal that “America First” is “America together” and that both men believed that every person of every color deserves to thrive.

“As a 15 year old Black American, I saw firsthand the devastation the Obama Administration caused within my community. President Trump has sought to heal those wounds and has done a darn good job. Perhaps, the Left should take notes,” Pearson told the Gateway Pundit.

WATCH: Rand Paul Reveals What Trump Did For Haiti As A Private Citizen, Delivers Blow To ‘Racist’ Narrative

On Sunday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) delivered a major blow to the media’s narrative that President Donald Trump’s supposed “s***hole” remark about Haiti proves that he is “racist.”

Paul appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with host Chuck Todd where he revealed that Donald Trump, as a private citizen, was a major financial backer of medical mission trips to Haiti which resulted in life-changing surgeries for hundreds of Haitians.

Speaking about Trump’s alleged “s***hole” comment, Paul said, “You know, I don’t think the comments were constructive at all, but I also think that to be fair we shouldn’t draw conclusions that he didn’t intend.”

“I know personally about his feelings towards Haiti and toward Central America because when I was not a candidate for president and he wasn’t a candidate for president I went down there on a medical mission trip,” Paul continued. “I did about 200 cataract surgeries with a group of surgeons in Haiti and the same in Central America, and when we asked Donald J. Trump as a private citizen to support those trips, he was a large financial backer of both medical mission trips.”

“So I think it’s unfair to sort of draw conclusions from a remark that I think wasn’t constructive is the least we can say, and it’s unfair to all of a sudden paint him as ‘he’s a racist’ when I know for a fact he cares very deeply about the people in Haiti because he helped finance a trip where we were able to get vision back for 200 people in Haiti,” Paul concluded.


Hillary Clinton calls Trump’s views “ignorant” and “racist” after president’s “sh*thole” comment

Hillary Clinton posted a response Friday to President Trump’s “shithole countries” remark from an Oval Office meeting a day earlier.

The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee noted that Friday was the eighth anniversary of the Haiti earthquake after Mr. Trump reportedly referred to the nation as one of a number of “sh*thole countries.”

Mr. Trump issued a denial Friday about using that language where he reportedly described Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as “sh*thole countries.” The White House meeting on immigration included a bipartisan group of senators. The president tweeted that he used “tough” language but that that was “not the language used.” Although it is being taken as a denial of the “sh*thole” comment, Mr. Trump did not specifically reference that phrase in his denial.

After The Washington Post first reported Mr. Trump’s remarks on Thursday, later confirmed by CBS News’ Nancy Cordes, the White House did not deny the comment in a statement.

Former Vice President Joe Biden weighed in on Twitter Friday morning. President Obama, whose father was from Kenya, has not responded.

Jim Carrey: Trump Pushing America Toward ‘Suffering Beyond All Imagination’

Actor Jim Carrey warned that President Donald Trump’s insistence on ‘alienating the world’ will eventually thrust America into unimaginable agony.
“I woke up this morning in Hawaii with ten minutes to live,” Carrey wrote on Twitter Saturday, apparently referencing a Emergency Alert System (EAS) message sent to citizens of Hawaii warning them to “seek immediate shelter” from a “ballistic missile threat.”

“It was a false alarm, but a real psychic warning,” Carrey continued, adding of Trump, “If we allow this one-man Gomorrah and his corrupt Republican congress to continue alienating the world we are headed for suffering beyond all imagination. ;^\”

The erroneous message, reportedly sent to some one million-plus Hawaiians, prompted panic as the false alarm wasn’t confirmed as false for more than thirty-five minutes. The message was sent by the state agency false alarm sent by Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency (EMA), which apologized for the mistake.

President Trump was, according to the Associated Press, in Florida at the time and was briefed on the situation.

Carrey, of course, wasn’t the only Hollywood star to pin the panic-inducing false alarm on President Trump.

“YOU DID THIS!” belted actress Jamie Lee Curtis on Twitter, blaming the false alarm on Trump.

“This Hawaii missle scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that mothers & fathers & children felt is on YOU. It is on YOUR ARROGANCE. HUBRIS. NARCISSISM. RAGE. EGO. IMMATURITY and your UNSTABLE IDIOCY. Shame on your hate filled self. YOU DID THIS!” the Halloween star tweeted.

Below is a round up of more celebrity freakout and Trump-bashing over the false ballistic missile alarm.

Donald Trump: ‘DACA Is Probably Dead’

President Donald Trump expressed his skepticism that a DACA deal could be reached with Democrats.
“DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don’t really want it,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday.

He suggested that Democrats were preparing a government shutdown over the issue after they leaked details of a private conversation with them to the media.

“They just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military,” Trump wrote.

On Saturday, he said it was “too bad” that Democrats were not serious about reaching a DACA deal.

“I don’t believe the Democrats really want to see a deal on DACA,” he said. “They are all talk and no action. This is the time but, day by day, they are blowing the one great opportunity they have. Too bad!”

Trump urged a return to a merit-based system of immigration.

“I, as President, want people coming into our Country who are going to help us become strong and great again, people coming in through a system based on MERIT,” he wrote. “No more Lotteries! AMERICA FIRST.”

Flake to denounce Trump media attacks as Stalinist in Senate speech

WASHINGTON — Sen. Jeff Flake is planning to slam President Donald Trump’s attacks on the press on the Senate floor this week in a speech that will compare the president’s use of the term “enemy of the people” to describe the media to Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.

“When a figure in power reflexively calls any press that doesn’t suit him ‘fake news,’ it is that person who should be the figure of suspicion, not the press,” Flake, R-Ariz., will say, according to excerpts of the speech provided to NBC News.

Trump called the media the “enemy of the people” in a February tweet. “The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!” the president wrote on Twitter.

“Mr. President, it is a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses words infamously spoken by Josef Stalin to describe his enemies,” Flake plans to say in the Senate remarks.

“It bears noting that so fraught with malice was the phrase ‘enemy of the people,’ that even (later Soviet leader) Nikita Khrushchev forbad its use, telling the Soviet Communist Party that the phrase had been introduced by Stalin to for the purpose of ‘annihilating such individuals’ who disagreed with the supreme leader,” Flake will say.

“This alone should be a source of great shame for us in this body, especially those of us in the president’s party. For they are shameful and repulsive statements.”

The speech from one of Trump’s fiercest Republican critics comes as the president has promoted his “Fake News Awards” on Twitter, saying that the awards, expected to be on Wednesday, will go to “the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media.”

Since the 2016 election, Flake has emerged as a sharp critic of Trump, writing a book challenging the president earlier this year.

Flake, who is not running for re-election, explained his rationale for the upcoming Senate speech in an interview with NBC News’ Kasie Hunt for Sunday night’s “Kasie DC” on MSNBC, urging fellow GOP lawmakers to resist the temptation to “retreat into camps” when dealing with Trump.

“What I’m trying to do with this speech is basically trying to nudge the president back where I think that we, as elected officials, ought to be. And I think that that’s a role that I should have as a member of the Senate,” Flake told Hunt in the interview.

“We have a balance of power, separated powers here. We shouldn’t all be afraid to criticize the president when we think he’s wrong,” he added.

In the Senate speech, Flake plans to label Trump’s attacks on the press as “unprecedented” and “unwarranted.”

“2017 was a year which saw the truth — objective, empirical, evidence-based truth — more battered and abused than any other time in the history of our country, at the hands of the most powerful figure in our government,” Flake will say, according to the excerpts.

In an interview with Hunt, Flake reiterated his opposition to labeling the media the “enemy of the people.”

“I don’t think that we should be using the phrase that’s been rejected as too loaded by a Soviet dictator,” Flake said.
