FBI Director James Comey was in the Los Angeles bureau when he got the news he was let go. He was speaking to staff members when televisions throughout the office started broadcasting that he had been fired by the president. The New York Times reports that he initially laughed it off before finding out it wasn’t a prank.
In a recent interview with the Washington Examiner‘s Salena Zito, Donald Trump – the current President of the United States – asked, “What caused the Civil War?” This led many in the news media to highlight the sitting president’s apparent lack of knowledge about the historical context surrounding this country’s most deadly war. While it might be the most convenient answer that Trump just “doesn’t know” anything about this country’s history, I have reason to believe this whole farce of a president and the antics he continues to perpetuate run much deeper than simply not knowing any better.
After sending an air strike to destroy Syrian airfields only a few days ago, the United States government has now ramped up its efforts to fight ISIS by dropping its biggest non-nuclear bomb in Eastern Afghanistan.
President Donald Trump has been infatuated with both Russia and its leadership for over a year now. Based on recent news stories, it appears that his affections weren’t one-sided. They may have helped him win the election. However, as many predicted, this illicit relationship has now put Trump, and the United States, in an awkward position especially where it concerns Syria.
One of the many jobs of the president of the United States is to be the face of the nation and act as a middle man between American citizens and other countries. In other words, Donald Trump is currently our main contact with foreign leaders.
Let that sink in for a few minutes.

If only old Kanye was here to comment on the conditions facing young people under the Trump Administration. Then, we might have some public dialogue about it.
From the moment of Kanye West’s now infamous concert rant, the multi-platinum rapper made it clear that he was #teamTrump. But recently, Kanye deleted any trace of his support for Trump from his social media. I can only hope he learned his lesson, after Kanye’s huge fan base of diverse young people were greatly disappointed by his Trump comments. Though Hillary Clinton received a lot of criticism going into and during the course of the 2016 election, young people overwhelmingly supported Clinton over Trump. If it wasn’t already apparent during his ongoing attacks both on the campaign trail and as POTUS, Donald Trump doesn’t care about the consequences of his extremely unpopular and damaging policies his administration has already implemented.
In the remixed version of the old Kanye West: Donald Trump does not care about young people. If he did, he wouldn’t be trying to take away our health care.
President Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban 2.0 is facing the same roadblocks as its predecessor despite being “watered down.”
Ever since he started his campaign, President Donald Trump has made it clear that he would break from tradition and wouldn’t releases his taxed to the public. Many suspected that this was his way of avoiding a major hit in the polls due to suspicion of illicit business practices.
However, yesterday was filled with anticipation as MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow announced that she’d obtained Trump’s tax forms and would reveal them on her show later that night.
Some people don’t like it when politics makes an appearance in entertainment, as if politics doesn’t affect every aspect of day-to-day life. Don Cheadle likely pissed a lot of them off recently after he shared his opinions on President Donald Trump and didn’t hold any punches.
