President Donald Trump on Friday completely flubbed a speech in front of the National Rifle Association as he struggled to read a long word from his teleprompter.
During his speech before the NRA, Trump announced that the United States had sent word to the United Nations that it was rejecting an international arms trade treaty that was signed by former President Barack Obama, but was never signed into law.
In denouncing the treaty, Trump tried to claim that it would have infringed upon American gunowners’ rights.
“This treaty threatened your…,” Trump began before taking a long pause to stare at the teleprompter. “Subjugate… and you know exactly what’s going on here, your rights.”

New York Times admits they ‘downplayed’ the rape allegation against Trump
On Monday, The New York Times issued a mea culpa for the nature of their coverage of the allegation by advice columnist E. Jean Carroll that President Donald Trump raped her in a department store in the 1990s.
"After an article last week reported the advice columnist E.

Some questioned whether the lack of prominence showed too much deference to the president's denials, or whether it even suggested misogyny or an unwillingness to believe a victim's account."

LGBTQ pride ‘forces’ people to accept ‘a perverted and non-biblical view of sexuality’: West Virginia Republican
West Virginia state Sen. Mike Azinger penned an angry op-ed for the Parkersburg News and Sentinel, scorning the idea of LGBTQ acceptance and warning that it is a massive plot to indoctrinate people against Christian values.
"Tolerance, in the face of the violation of the commandments of God, is no virtue at all," said Azinger, a manager of a contracting firm with a master's degree in pastoral theology. He ripped into the local newspaper for covering an LGBTQ pride event the previous Saturday, thundering that, "Sexual deviancy is going mainstream."
