Hillary Supporter Cher Has Just A Few Words To Say To Melania Trump, And They’re Not Good

Singer and music icon Cher had a few thoughts regarding first lady Melania Trump and her marriage to President Donald Trump.

“Not to [be] mean, but Melania Trump always [seems] sad/angry, like she lost a best friend. They NEVER smile or exchange little looks on TV,” Cher tweeted June 29. “I feel bad.”

Cher’s tweet came on the heels of controversy surrounding Mr. Trump’s tweet to Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, hosts of MSNBC morning talk show “Morning Joe.”

“I heard poorly rated ‘Morning Joe’ speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore),” Trump wrote June 29. “Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

Rebukes to the tweets came from around social media, with a few Republican lawmakers denouncing Trump’s comments completely, according to CNN. Lindsay Graham and Ben Sasse, both Republicans in Congress, were among the first to respond to the president’s tweets with condemnation.

“Please just stop,” Sasse wrote. “This isn’t normal and it’s beneath the dignity of your office.”

As for Cher’s particular comments, it seemed she was responding to Melania’s willingness to staunchly defend her husband after the tweets.

“As the first lady has stated publicly in the past, when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder,” said Stephanie Grisham, Melania’s communications director.

Melania has also been a vocal supporter of efforts to stop cyberbullying, according to CNN.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the official White House spokesperson, also came to the president’s defense regarding his tweets.

“Look, the American people elected a fighter,” Sanders explained. “They didn’t elect somebody to sit back and do nothing.” She then added that Trump “fights fire with fire.”

“I don’t think that the president’s ever been someone who gets attacked and doesn’t push back,” she continued. “There have been an outrageous number of personal attacks, not just to him but people around him.”

Mr. Trump is known to watch cable TV news programs and pays particularly close attention to Fox News, CNN and MSNBC, often calling pro-Trump guests after he sees their appearances to thank them for the kind remarks. His relationship with the “Morning Joe” hosts was described as “jovial” and lighthearted during the campaign, but the feelings had turned during his presidency.

9-year-old girl killed while sledding down driveway

A 9-year-old girl was hit by a pickup truck after she sledded down the driveway of a Virginia home and into the street, according to WTVR.

The child was transported to VCU Medical Center, where she died as a result of her injuries.

The tragic incident happened before 2:30 p.m. Thursday outside a home along the 2600 block of Mistwood Forest Drive.

The girl’s name has not yet been released. Sources said she was not from Virginia, but in town visiting family.

The driver of the truck, a man who lives in the neighborhood, immediately stopped, police said.

The crash team investigation into the crash remained ongoing. No charges were filed as of Friday morning.


Soldier home for Christmas dies while rescuing neighbors from massive fire in New York apartment building

Private Emmanuel Mensah went off to serve in the Army National Guard, but it was back home where he made the ultimate sacrifice.

Mensah died trying to rescue people from his burning apartment building this week in the Bronx, New York, in the city’s deadliest fire in more than 25 years, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

As Mensah’s father tells it, he went back into the building twice to rescue neighbors. But he did not make it out alive.

“Private Emmanuel Mensah was a first-generation immigrant, a soldier and a New Yorker. He gave his life rescuing his neighbors in the Bronx fire. His heroism exemplifies the best of our city. Rest in peace,” the mayor said Saturday.

A child playing with a kitchen stove started the fire, which quickly spread through the 29-unit building. The fire killed at least 12 people, including four children.

Emmanuel Mensah, 28, was stationed in Virginia, his father said.

A private first class in the New York National Guard, he had just graduated from boot camp after starting basic training in the fall, spokesman Eric Durr said. He was slated to go to advanced individual training in 2018. He was training to be a military police officer, a role that offers a variety of potential responsibilities, from garrison law enforcement to security in the field.

This visit was his first back to the Bronx in the year since he enlisted in the National Guard, his father said. He was in the building when the fire broke out.

A 3-year-old boy’s screams alerted his mother that a fire had erupted in their apartment in the building’s first floor. The boy was playing with the burners on the kitchen stove, officials said. As his mother fled the burning apartment with him and his sibling, she left the apartment door open, a move that would prove fatal.

Each time someone opened a window, oxygen rushed into the building, fanning the flames. The apartment’s stairway acted like a chimney as the fire burst from the apartment, feeding the flames and allowing them to spread throughout the building, FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said.

‘God is in control’
Kwabena Mensah learned from others that his son helped others to safety. He went out and back twice, but “on the third time he couldn’t find his way out,” he said.

“I thought as a military man he may have gotten out already,” he said Friday. “But like I said, God is in control.”

It came as little surprise to Mensah’s father that he came to the aid of others. “That’s his nature: He wants to help people out,” Kwabena Mensah told CNN on Friday. At the time, his son’s death had not been confirmed but he had little hope for his survival.

“As a father, you always have to feel sad when you get such news about your son, and I thought maybe he’s coming back,” Mensah said. “But unfortunately it turns out the other way.”

Prisoner Who Killed 2 Officers, Impregnated Guard Gets Surprising News

A New York man who killed two detectives has been taken off of death row after a federal judge found that he is legally considered to be intellectually disabled.

Rowell Wilson, 33, was sentenced to death for a March 10, 2003, incident in which he shot James Nemorin and Rodney Andrews, both of whom were undercover NYPD detectives, reports WPIX. Both were shot in the back of the head.

In court in 2006, a prosecutor said Wilson was part of a Staten Island gang called the Stapleton Crew. The prosecutor said Wilson may have been trying to steal $1,200 from the detectives while they posed as potential gun buyers.

Wilson was convicted by a jury and sentenced to death by lethal injection.

In 2010, the sentence was thrown out by an appeals court due to a jury error. In 2013, prosecutors repeated the penalty phase and a jury resentenced him to death. Wilson has been in a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, since the 2013 sentencing.

In 2012, Wilson impregnated a prison guard, Nancy Gonzales while incarcerated in New York City. Their child, Justus, was born soon after Gonzales was arrested, reports Daily Mail.

Gonzales was sentenced to prison for one year and one day for having relations with an inmate.

During a 2012 hearing, a judge found that Wilson’s IQ scores may qualify him for being considered intellectually disabled.

The Supreme Court ruled in 2014 that IQ score alone was not enough for a judge to determine a person to be intellectually disabled.

After reviewing his findings, Wilson was ruled to be intellectually disabled on March 15 and was removed from death row. He will serve life in prison without parole, reports the Daily Mail.

Cops Leave Drunk Teen Girl Handcuffed In Back Of Car, Come Back To Horrific Sight

A 17-year-old girl was arrested in Quebec, Canada in September 2011 because she was intoxicated. The arresting officer, Danielle Gallant, placed the handcuffed girl in the backseat of a Kativik Regional Police Force (KRPF) squad truck with 24-year-old Joe Kritik, a registered sex offender.

Kritik was not handcuffed and had been arrested for causing a disturbance. When Officer Gallant made a stop, and left the two alone and unsupervised in the backseat of the police truck, Kritik attacked and raped the teenage girl.

It is reported that the victim, whose name has not been released, did not receive medical attention following the rape. Additionally, the Kativik Regional Police Force failed to notify her parents of the incident. She was kept in a jail cell overnight.

The victim has filed a lawsuit in Quebec Superior Court against Officer Gallant, the Kativik Regional Police Force and the Kativik Regional Government. The lawsuit asserts, “The plaintiff was unable to defend herself, being handcuffed in her back and unable to leave the vehicle, the doors being locked,” as reported by the National Post. The victim is seeking $400,000 in damages.

Gallant was a rookie with the Kativik Regional Police Force in September 2011 and had only been on the job for less than a month when the rape occurred under her watch. Gallant was patrolling alone, without a partner. She was not permitted to carry a weapon.

The victim’s lawsuit alleges, “The KRPF manifested a serious lack of professionalism and gross negligence by leaving an inexperienced police officer, with no knowledge or life experience of northern Quebec populations, and without the authorization to carry a firearm, to ensure alone the security of the public,” according to the National Post.

Gallant has since resigned from the Kativik Regional Police Department, that is, after immediately being suspended by the Force because of the incident. Kritik was sentenced to 39 months in prison after pleading guilty to raping the victim.

Dead Toddler Had 3 Simple Words Written On His Body

A toddler who died of brain injuries the day before Thanksgiving 2016 previously had inscriptions in ink on his stomach and forehead.

The victim, 18-month-old Ares Baroz, died in a New Mexico hospital on Nov. 23, 2016, reports the Daily Mail. He had fractures of the skull, legs and shoulder, in addition to brain bleeding and bruising of both ears.

His mother, Miranda Rabago, 27, was arrested and indicted for child abuse resulting in death. Assistant District Attorney Susan Stinson said additional charges could be forthcoming, pending the results of the autopsy report.

The strange writings on the infant’s body were revealed by Stinson, reports The Washington Post. She said photos on the mother’s cell phone revealed that a black marker was used to write “thug life” across the stomach, and the word “loco” was written to resemble a tattoo on the forehead.

It is not known when the photos were taken, nor if the words were still present when Ares was taken to the hospital.

The prosecutor has asserted that the photos are evidence of how the child was treated at home. Rabago’s attorney, however, contends that it is too early to draw any conclusions.

“It’s difficult to look at something like that and think the worst about that kind of picture, especially in the context of what we know so far,” said Rabago’s public defender, Stephen Taylor. “I just want to caution everybody into thinking that there’s something to that evidence, when we haven’t gotten everything yet to see the whole picture, the whole story about what led to Ares’s death.”

Authorities believe that the child’s injuries were sustained over a period of time. He was found to be malnourished when examined by hospital staff, who suspected abuse and summoned police.

Rabago denied harming her son and told authorities that he seemed fine until she discovered him unconscious and unresponsive two days before his death. Investigators who searched Rabago’s apartment found a sippy cup with rotten milk in his crib, along with a blood-stained pillow.

On Jan. 13, Rabago pleaded not guilty in Santa Fe District Court. If convicted, she faces up to $20,000 in fines and up to 21 years in prison, Stinson said.

5 High School BoysTry To Do Something Awful To Girl For 2nd Time, Don’t Notice One Tiny Thing

Five underage students from a Florida high school have been charged with the gang rape of a 16-year-old girl on Nov. 13.

Two of the students — Deoante Stewart, who turned 17 the day of the alleged assault, and Marquis Pierre, who was 16 at the time but is now 17 — are being tried as adults. The other three are being arraigned in juvenile court today, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

A sixth suspect has not been charged. He is the only adult — 18-year-old Torreano Batton. He’s due back for an arraignment today as well.

The six were arrested when a 16-year-old girl told police that they sexually assaulted her in a patch of woods near Winter Springs High on Nov. 16.

She told police that three of the suspects raped her when she was walking back from the school to a nearby McDonald’s. She was raped again on her way back when two of the boys found her and pulled her into the woods where others were waiting, according to the police report.

The girl was able to film part of the attack on her iPhone. According to the police, the video shows the boys asking her to perform sexual acts and her telling the boys, “No,” and that she wants to go back to school.

“The males are circling her and appear to be trying to intimidate her into performing the acts and keeping her from leaving,” according to the police report.

Two of the suspects assaulted her twice, she said.

Three of the suspects claim that the act was consensual and two denied to have taken part.

Batton told police he was not involved, and was released with a $35,000 bond. He was ordered to wear a GPS monitor and told to stay away from the school.

If convicted, the juveniles would be in juvenile detention until they turn 19. The adults — since they are “youthful offenders” — would only serve four years in prison, reports the Orlando Sentinel. The maximum sentence for their charges is 30 years.

Trump Responds To Farmer Who Plowed Message Into Field (Photos)

President Donald Trump responded to a farmer in North Dakota who plowed a message into his field.

Farmer Gene Hanson considers himself a big supporter of the national anthem. When football players in the NFL began kneeling during the anthem in protest before games, Hanson wanted to send a message stating how he felt about the issue.

To share his message, Hanson chose to use the best platform he could think of: his 850-acre farm.

Since harvest season was over, Hanson decided to plow a clear message into his field. According to All That’s News, the message read, “We stand for the National Anthem.”

Photos of Hanson’s field quickly spread on social media and eventually, the story made its way to the president.

“Thank you Gene Hanson – a GREAT American (and farmer) who is standing up for our flag, our anthem, and our country!” Trump tweeted, sharing a link to an article about Hanson and his message.

Hanson said in an interview with “Fox & Friends” on Fox News that the message was not intended to show any disrespect to those who feel passionately about protesting issues such as racism and police brutality.

“I didn’t think it was anything about black, white or brown, Democrat or Republican,” Hanson said. “It was all about honoring our flag and our country. There’s a lot of people that died for it, so I thought that it should be honored.”

He added, “I go with Trump on this one. If you want to protest, that’s not the place to do it. A lot of people died over our flag. We’re able to voice our opinion because of it. If you’re going to show respect for anything, do it for the national anthem.”

Hanson has previously plowed a number of messages into his field, including, “Drain the Swamp,” “Blue Lives Matter,” “Trump” and “GOP get your act together.”

Readers of Fox News shared their thoughts on the story.

“Being a farm wife in rural Nebraska, I understand the time, money, and effort this North Dakota farmer did to make this happen,” one reader commented. “I applaud him for his efforts. If you look over the country side during harvest, you will see combines proudly fly the American flag while harvesting grain. You will see the American flags on top of very high grain bins and even grain cooperatives. You will see the flag displayed on the bills of their hats. You will see flags neatly tucked on their mantles of their loved ones that lost their lives for the freedoms we have. These hard working men and women still kneel to pray each day before harvest begins and still stands (with hats off) for this country and its symbols of freedom. Maybe the NFL should take note of this….”

“Good man, this farmer,” another user wrote.

Navy SEALs Send POWERFUL Message to Trump, Leaving Obama FURIOUS

The days when our military members and veterans are forgotten are long over! This has led to an outpouring of Trump support.

My favorite is a Navy SEAL convoy that flew a Trump flag proudly while travelling from one training site to another. (via Daily Mail)

The only problem is, the Military is investigating the flag, which they say is “inappropriate,” according to Navy Spokeswoman Jacqui Maxwell.

So supporting the Commander-in-Chief is suddenly a problem? I think Trump is going to want to get to the bottom of this one.

Maxwell stated that military code discourage any show of support for a “political candidate, campaign or cause.” Yes, I can see why this is an important rule, but Donald Trump is not a candidate, campaign, or cause.

Unless, that is, you consider the success of our country to be a cause. I mean, the man is the military’s Commander-in-Chief.

Waving a Donald Trump is like waving an American flag, the military is bound to both. Our men and women should be allowed to show support for the man who leads their chain of command. I have a feeling the commanders would be a little less upset if the SEALs had been waving an Obama flag.

On twitter, one Richard Barris made the point even clearer, “A truck of Navy SEALS flying Trump flag is not ‘news.’ Nearly all operators–Seals, Green Berets, Force Recon–are Republican & LOVE Trump.”

It’s true, the only people surprised by this were Liberals. The rest of us just felt some patriotic joy that our military finally appears to be proud of our Commander-in-Chief, instead of just accepting the position’s authority, as most seemed to do with Obama.

A second veteran had a very different opinion. Chris Rowzee, from the Air force, said, “This type of blatant partisan political display demonstrating allegiance to a singular person brings to mind the types of actions historically seen in authoritarian regimes and dictatorships. It’s chilling.”

Right, since when is showing support for our nation’s leader showing support for “one person?” It seems that the Liberals would have taken this incident a little better if they had remembered that most of us think of Trump as our President, not just a random person.

Showing support for our duly elected President is showing support for our country. When did Liberals forget that?

Man Who Slammed 5-Week-Old Infant Repeatedly On Concrete Learns His Fate

A horrid accident happened almost two years back, on September 29, 2015 – 5-week-old infant Lillian Grace Lloyd was brutally murdered by her very own father, Dalton Davis. He had killed her out of anger. How he did so was truly cruel – he slammed his own child’s head on the concrete pavement until she bled to death.

After the baby died, Davis took her body and hid it somewhere where his girlfriend and mother to the baby Courtney Lloyd, could not locate. Courtney found her baby’s lifeless body hours later – but it was too late.

Prior to killing the child, Davis fought with Courtney – and he took his anger out on poor Lillian when Courtney napped.

Davis has been sentenced to a maximum jail term of 65 years for his crime.
