Parkland survivor calls on Melania Trump to intervene after Fox’s Laura Ingraham ‘cyberbullies’ her brother

Published

Citing First Lady Melania Trump’s campaign to end cyberbullying, Parkland survivor Lauren Hogg tagged the president’s wife in a tweet asking her to intervene after a Fox News personality attacked her brother for his gun control protests.

“HEY @FLOTUS,” the younger sister of highly-visible Marjory Stoneman Douglas activist David Hogg tweeted. “MY BROTHER IS LITERALLY GETTING CYBERBULLIED BY @IngrahamAngle.”

“ANY COMMENTS?” she asked.

Ingraham’s criticisms of the elder Hogg have ranged from a tweet earlier in the day mocking him for not getting into his first choice colleges to calling him “less than classy” for using curse words during a Fox News interview earlier in the week.

This is the second time Lauren Hogg has criticized the First Lady on Twitter. In February, shortly after the shooting, she called on her to condemn Donald Trump Jr. for liking tweets that suggested her brother was a “crisis actor.”

“You say that your mission as First Lady is to stop cyber bullying, well then, don’t you think it would have been smart to have a convo with your step-son @DonaldJTrumpJr before he liked a post about a false conspiracy theory which in turn put a target on my back,” Hogg tweeted.

The conspiracy theory “created a safe space for people all over the world to call me and my family horrific things that constantly re-victimizes us and our community,” she continued. “I’m 14 I should never have had to deal with any of this and even though I thought it couldn’t get worse it has because of your family.”

White House employees will now be subject to mandatory testing for COVID-19, an official said on Monday.

In a statement to CNN's Jim Acosta, the unnamed White House official said that staffers working near President Donald Trump would be forced to undergo randomized testing.

"As part of our ongoing efforts to protect the health and safety of the entire White House Complex, randomized testing of Executive Office of the President staff, which has been ongoing for several months, will become mandatory rather than voluntary," the official said.

White House employees reportedly received an email Monday morning with a stern warning.

‘Drinking the Kool-Aid’: Famous anti-cult attorney explains what Trump has in common with notorious People’s Temple leader

Published

on

Los Angeles-based attorney/journalist Paul Morantz is famous for his work against cults — most notably, Synanon, which tried to kill him in 1978 by placing a rattlesnake in his mailbox. And in a scathing op-ed for his website, Morantz compares President Donald Trump to the infamous cult leader Jim Jones, arguing that Trump, in effect, committed “mass murder” by downplaying the severity of the coronavirus pandemic and encouraging large gatherings despite the dangers.

In 1978, the same year in which Morantz survived a rattlesnake bite, Jones was responsible for a mass killing in a remote area of Guyana — where the leader of the People’s Temple ordered his followers to drink Kool-Aid that was laced with cyanide. More than 900 cult members died at the Jonestown settlement on November 18, 1978, and in 2020, the slang expression “drinking the Kool-Aid” is still used to criticize people who blindly accept bad information.
