‘Booed by a room full of priests’: Trump bombs at the #AlSmithDinner and the Internet goes nuts

Published

on

Donald Trump got outright booed at the Al Smith dinner Thursday night. Traditionally, the dinner brings both major parties and candidates together for self-deprecating humor and general silliness.

As you watch the video, note the woman to the left and behind Trump (possibly Maria Bartiromo) and the man to the right of Trump (James MacGilvray). The horrified looks on their faces say it all. These in particular:

“A special hello to all of you in this room who have known and loved me for many, many years,” Trump began. “It’s true. the politicians, they’ve had me to their homes, they’ve introduced me to their children, I’d become their best friends in many instances. They asked for my endorsement and always wanted my money. And even called me really a dear, dear friend. but then, suddenly, decided when I ran for president as a Republican that I’ve always been a no-good, rotten, disgusting scoundrel. And they totally forgot about me. But that’s okay.”

This opening section was the first indication the only jokes to come were attacks on Clinton.

Following the event, CNN pundit David Gergen said that he has never once heard booing at the event before. Trump brought a new first in the 2016 campaign.

That’s when the internet began to light him up. Here are a few reactions below:

Franklin Graham blamed sinners for the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic during a Saturday night appearance on Fox News.

Host Jeanine Pirro noted the growing death toll and wondered how God could let that happen.

"Well, I don't think it's God's plan for this to happen," Graham said.

"It's because of the sin that's in the world, judge," he argued.

"Man has turned his back on God, we have sinned against him, and we need to ask for God's forgiveness and that's what Easter's all about," he continued.

"This pandemic, this is the result of a fallen world that has turned its back on God," he added.

Drought causing water shortage amid coronavirus crisis in Chile

Published

on

With historically low river flows and reservoirs running dry due to drought, people in central Chile have found themselves particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic.

Years of resource exploitation and lax legislation have allowed most reservoirs in that part of the country to run dry.

"There are now 400,000 families, nearly 1.5 million people approximately, whose supply of 50 liters of water a day depends on tankers," Rodrigo Mundaca, spokesman for the Movement for the Defense of Water, the Earth and the Protection of the Environment, told AFP.

Europe continues to bear the brunt of the epidemic, however, accounting for over 45,000 of the worldwide deaths, and Britain reported a new daily high in fatalities.

There are now more than 1.17 million confirmed coronavirus cases around the world and there have been 63,437 deaths since the virus emerged in China late last year.
