Holy crap, y’all. This has been quite a week. I already talked about the Manchester attacks, so I’m not going to again in this post, but even since then, it’s been one hell of a week.
First off, Donald Trump. Okay, so this is a little bit about the Manchester attack, but more so the intelligence that came out afterwards, and the leaks that came out to the New York Times that gave pictures, information, names, etc, and the New York Times released the information mere hours after the attack. This caused a large amount of tension between the United States and the United Kingdom. The information leaks have to stop. The President needs to learn to keep his mouth shut. We don’t want to hear his voice anyway.
Secondly, Montana. On Wednesday night, Republican candidate Greg Gianforte straight up bodyslammed a reporter from the Guardian. Like, straight up bodyslammed, like a WWE wrestler. All because the candidate didn’t like the question that the reporter asked him. What’s worse than this, HE WON THE ELECTION. AFTER THE INCIDENT. 47.2% of the voters in Montana knew this happened, and still voted for him. This is a result of the Trump rhetoric, where you can do or say anything, and the people will still blindly follow and vote for them.
Third, again, Donald Trump. Yesterday, in a photo op with the leaders of NATO nations, the following happened:
In case you don’t know, the man that Trump shoved out of the way to be at the front and center of the picture is the president of NATO, the man in charge of the organization, but Trump’s ego caused him to literally shove him out of the way, so he could be at the front of the picture. How pathetic and ego-centric do you have to be to need to be at the front of the attention in a group of people who are much more qualified to be leaders than you?
