Watch Alex Jones scream in front of the White House as Trump meets with Twitter CEO

Published

on

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump met with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. And far-right “InfoWars” conspiracy theorist Alex Jones — best known for claiming that the government was turning frogs gay and that the Sandy Hook massacre was a false flag operation — decided to use the moment to promote himself.

Jones, who was banned from Twitter last year for hate speech and targeted harassment against protected classes, stood in front of the White House with a megaphone chanting “InfoWars.com! InfoWars.com!” and shouting “President Trump, you must stand up against big tech censorship!” The whole event was live streamed.

Watch below:

During the course of this stunt, Jones engaged with passersby:

Top officials from a raft of departments have been meeting to hash out the best approach.

How Trump could save America

Published

on

Donald Trump keeps claiming that his accomplishments exceed those of all previous American presidents.

Earlier this year, the White House published an amazing piece, titled “The Historic Results of Donald J. Trump’s First Two Years in Office.” Trump´s staff patted itself on the back so hard it must have hurt.

You don’t have to be a psychiatrist to realize the following: First, Trump has an obsessive desire to claim himself a success story. Second, despite his massive narcissism, he is painfully aware that he is an unmitigated failure. That is what explains his irrepressible desire to aggrandize himself.

South Korean fighter jets fired nearly 400 warning shots at a Russian military aircraft on Tuesday after it violated the country's airspace, with Seoul warning of a far stronger reaction if a breach reoccurs.

The Russian A-50 early warning and control aircraft breached South Korean airspace twice off its east coast, the defence ministry official said, forcing the air force to scramble fighters.

Moscow denied any of its military aircraft had violated South Korean airspace, saying its planes had carried out planned drills over international waters.

But Seoul said a warplane entered South Korean airspace near the disputed Dokdo islets -- which are also claimed by Japan -- the first such violation since Korean War hostilities ended in 1953.
