Former President George W. Bush breaks down memorializing his father as a scowling Donald Trump looks on

Published

Former President George W. Bush broke down eulogizing “the best father a son or daughter could have,” former President George Herbert Walker Bush, as a scowling President Donald Trump sat uncomfortably in the pews.

“When the history books are written they are going to say that George H.W. Bush was a great president of the United States, a diplomat of unmatched skill, a commander in chief of formidable accomplishment, and a gentleman who executed the duties of his office with dignity and honor,” Bush began, tears welling up in his eyes as he quoted his father’s inaugural address.

“‘What do we want the men and women who work with us to say when we are no longer there,'” he continued, as the cameras cut to a frowning President Trump, sitting with his arms tightly folded across his chest. “‘That we were more driven to succeed than anyone around us, or that we stopped to ask if a sick child had gotten better and stayed a moment there to trade a word of friendship?'”

“We are going to miss you, and your decency and sincerity and kind soul will stay with us forever,” Bush said, and broke down weeping. “Let us know the blessings of knowing and loving you. a great and noble man, the best father a son or daughter could have.”

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."

CNN conservative destroys GOPers who are silent on Trump’s racists tweets: Only ‘misfits and the dregs’ will defend him

During a CNN panel discussion on Donald Trump racists tweets attacking Democratic lawmakers who are not white and telling them to go back where they came from, conservative contributor Amanda Carpenter unleashed a scathing attack on GOP lawmakers who are standing by and remaining silent.

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, the former aide to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) called on members of her party to "get off their butts" for once and call out the president.

"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.
