NYT’s Friedman torches Trump in epic rant: ‘Every one of us can trace our roots to sh*thole countries’

Published

on

Thomas Friedman dropped an epic rant against President Donald Trump's racist attacks on Democratic lawmakers.

The New York Times columnist quoted the president's profane insults against majority-black countries as he blasted Trump for demanding four first-year congresswomen of color return to their home countries, although only one of them was born outside the United States.

"The president isn't talking just about or to these four congresswomen, he's talking about us," Friedman said. "He's talking about we. He's talking about every Irish-American whose grandparents fled the potato famine. He's talking about every Italian-American whose grandparents or great-grandparents fled the depression. He's talking about every Muslim-American whose parents or grandparents fled the disorder of Lebanon or Libya or Iraq. He's talking about every black American whose great-great-grandparents were forced to come here in slavery or fled disorder in Africa. He's talking about every Latin-American whose family came mere from Venezuela or Mexico. He's talking about we and us -- every one of us."

"I think that when Trump posts these controversial things, he's posing more loyalty tests to his troops: 'Who's going to go out and defend me?'" she began. "He likes to see who says good things about him on television."

Off the hook: Manta ray asks divers for helping hand

Published

on

A giant manta ray with several fishing hooks caught below its eye appeared to ask two nearby divers for help in removing them, and then waited patiently for them to do so.

Underwater photographer Jake Wilton was diving off Australia's west coast when the three-meter wide animal moved toward him, footage showed.

"I'm often guiding snorkelers in the area and it's as if she recognized me and was trusting me to help her," Wilton said in a statement Monday.

"She got closer and closer and then started unfurling to present the eye to me."

Incredible footage shows Wilton repeatedly diving down toward the animal and removing the hooks, before the manta ray departs after the final impediment is dislodged.
