‘A meme is born’: Watch Kellyanne Conway use visual aids to explain why there’s no Trump-Russia collusion

Published

on

In an interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway brought along some very important visual aides to “help all the people at home” dissect what’s really going on with Donald Trump and the Russian government.

To recap: On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. released a series of emails (circa June 2016) that showed he willingly accepted a meeting with a Russian emissary after being promised information detrimental to then-Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

If Trump Jr.’s version of the events are to be believed, nothing came of that meeting, and the president’s eldest son was in fact pretty bummed that his nefarious exchange with a Russian lawyer yielded nothing of substance for the campaign.

Investigators are now probing that get-together—which was also attended by Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort and top Trump adviser/favorite son Jared Kushner—as part of the ongoing investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives hoping to impact the 2016 election.

Now, the ins-and-outs of Trump associates’ various connections to Russia make even a highly-engaged political observer’s head spin. Which is presumably why Conway brought along her helpful props to explain why—despite all evidence to the contrary—the only “conclusion” one can reach is not “collusion” but “illusion and delusion.”

Duterte bristles at any Western condemnation of his signature campaign, which has killed thousands and critics say could amount to crimes against humanity.

The comments late Monday from presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo came in response to the UN Human Rights Council last week backing the Iceland-proposed resolution to review the killings.

"(Duterte) is seriously considering cutting diplomatic relations with Iceland," Panelo said in a statement.

AIDS deaths down a third since 2010: UN

Published

HIV-related deaths last year fell to around 770,000 -- some 33 percent lower than in 2010 -- the United Nations said Tuesday, but warned that global efforts to eradicate the disease were stalling as funding dries up.

An estimated 37.9 million people now live with HIV -- a record 23.3 million of those have access to some antiretroviral therapy (ART), UNAIDS said in its annual report.

Highlighting the enormous progress made since the height of the AIDS epidemic in the mid-1990s, the report showed that the number people dying from the disease fell from 800,000 in 2017 to 770,000 last year.

The figure was down by more than a third from 2010, when there were 1.2 million AIDS-related deaths.
