French President Emmanuel Macron closed his speech to France, and indeed the world, about the Paris Climate Agreement speaking in English in what seemed to be a direct message to U.S.A. President Donald Trump.

“Make our planet great again. Thank you,” Macron said.

The statement came at the end of a short message in French in response to Trump pulling out of the Paris Accord. The U.S. becomes one of just three countries to not be involved.

“I tell you firmly tonight: We will not renegotiate a less ambitious accord. There is no way,” said Macron. “Don’t be mistaken on climate; there is no plan B because there is no planet B.”

Prominent lawyer Neal Katyal is best known for having tried over 40 cases before the United States Supreme Court and serving as acting Solicitor General during the Obama administration.

On CNN Monday, conservative commentator S.E. Cupp argued that GOP lawmakers are not just scared of retribution for not standing with outgoing President Donald Trump; they are also scared of having to define what they stand for as a party without him telling them what to believe.

"For the past four years, we, especially in the media, have heard Republicans in private are XYZ — disgusted, disturbed, troubled — but publicly, very silent, except in these moments where it really doesn't count, where everyone is doing it," said Cupp. "I think, in fact, if I write another book, I will call it 'In private: the great cowardice of Trump's GOP.'"

Fox host whines about the media after Trump begins transition: ‘The 2020 election was not fair’

Published

On Fox News Monday, Tucker Carlson — who just a few days previously criticized President Donald Trump's attorney for refusing to provide evidence for voter fraud conspiracy theories — attacked the entire voting process as unfair.

"We ought to revert immediately to the traditional system of voting, the one that served our democracy for hundreds of years ... but at the same time, we shouldn't let our focus on voting machines distract us from all that happened earlier this month. The 2020 presidential election was not fair. No honest person would claim that it was fair."
