    Donald Trump, 2016 Presidential election, Emmanuel Macron, France, Donald Trump approval rating, polls

    A day after he returned from an awkward trip to France where he was apparently criticized in a speech by French President Emmanuel Macron, Donald Trump took to his Twitter account to chide Macron over his “very low approval rating,” even though Trump’s own approval rating stands at a record low, according to the average of all polls compiled by FiveThirtyEight.

    After Trump at a campaign rally on October 24 declared himself a “nationalist,” as USA Today reported, Macron gave a speech with Trump looking on at a World War I memorial service in France on Sunday — the 100th anniversary of the end of that war — in which he directly condemned the ideology of “nationalism,” in what was widely seen as a message to Trump.

    Donald Trump Explains Why He Skipped Cemetery Ceremony in France, Blasts 'Fake News' In New Tweet

    President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to explain the reason why he did not appear on Saturday at a U.S. military cemetery in France for a memorial event commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

    “By the way, when the helicopter couldn’t fly to the first cemetery in France because of almost zero visibility, I suggested driving. Secret Service said NO, too far from airport & big Paris shutdown. Speech next day at American Cemetary [sic] in pouring rain! Little reported-Fake News!” said Trump, echoing previous statements from White House officials and blaming the media for allegedly failing to tell the whole story about his absence at the event.

    Black Security Guard Jemel Roberson Stopped A Bar Shooting, Then Police Arrived And Shot Him Dead

    Jemel Roberson stopped a drunken man who opened fire at a bar outside Chicago and was holding the man at gunpoint, but when police arrived it was Roberson who they shot dead — even as witnesses shouted that Roberson was the wrong man.

    The killing of the black security guard has spawned protests in the community just outside Chicago, where Roberson was shot to death in the early morning hours on Sunday. As WGN-TV reported, Roberson was working as a security guard at Manny’s Blue Room Bar when he asked a group of drunken men to leave. One of them returned with a gun at close to 4 a.m. and opened fire.

    Roberson fired back and was able to apprehend one of the attackers, holding the man at gunpoint. As witnesses claimed, Roberson was still detaining the suspect when police arrived.

    walt disney world splash mountain dion cini trump 2020 banner banned magic kingdom

    Going to Walt Disney World is a privilege and not something that anyone has granted to them, but it can most certainly be taken away. People go to Disney Parks with the hope of having a great time and getting away from the stress of the outside world. One guest thought that it would be a good idea to let the magical world know his affiliation and support for Donald Trump, but it ended up getting him banned for life.

    Dion Cini is not ashamed of his support for president Donald Trump and he will continue to let the world know that he will vote for him in 2020. That is why the guest went to Walt Disney World, as it wasn’t just to ride the attractions and try all the different foods.

    Monica Lewinsky

    Monica Lewinsky has been interviewed multiple times over the years, but she has rarely discussed her affair with former U.S. President Bill Clinton. However, in the new A&E series The Clinton Affair, Lewinsky, 45, has finally opened up about the relationship that would become a national scandal, and a very specific event that she had never addressed before — that infamous stain on her dress that she wore after their much-written-about hookup, and which would prove she and Clinton were more than just friends.

    In The Clinton Affair, Lewinsky covers a range of topics, from the way the president wooed her to the blue dress that became soiled after she performed a sex act on Clinton in the Oval Office bathroom, according to a report from the New York Post.

    “I went to dinner that night. None of these people said to me, ‘Hey, you’ve got to go to the bathroom, you’ve got stuff all over your dress,'” she said.

    Mad Max Newton performs his crossbow act

    A strange incident has left a 35-year-old mother dead in England and her newborn in serious condition after a murder in the early morning hours in the Newbury Park neighborhood of East London. Sana Muhammad was doing dishes when she was shot through her kitchen window with a crossbow.

    The Telegraph is reporting that a 50-year-old man is in custody and charged with murder after he shot Muhammad, who was eight months pregnant at the time, in her abdomen with a crossbow, killing her in front of her five children. Paramedics arrived on the scene, but they were too late to save the mother. Instead, they performed an emergency c-section and delivered the baby onsite.

    The victim was known as Devi Unmathallegadoo before her current marriage and had two sons with her first husband.

    The woman’s husband, Imtiaz Muhammad, found the alleged shooter hiding in their garden shed with the crossbow.

    hate crimes have increased for the third year in a row

    Hate crimes have increased for the third year in a row, up 17 percent in 2017 from 2016, according to a new Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) report made available via CBS News.

    The federal law enforcement agency compiled reports of 7,175 incidents that have since been classified as “hate crimes,” up from 6,121 such crimes in 2016. The FBI defines a “hate crime” as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity.”

    For the past three years, the agency has noted an increase in such crimes year-to-year; a five percent increase between 2015 and 2016, and a 17 percent increase between 2016 and 2017.

    In 2017 alone, for example, the agency recorded 5,000 hate crimes that were directed against persons specifically – crimes such as assault or robbery, for example. Another couple thousand were targeted against property – businesses, places of worship, or homes, for example. The remainder were targeted at both.

    Medical marijuana escapes from a canister.

    People who use medical marijuana — or have purchased legal recreational pot in a state where it’s legal — won’t be able to buy guns, a Missouri firearms expert tells KMBC-TV (Kansas City).

    It’s a problem that the cannabis industry has known about for some time now — namely that cannabis users, even if they have a doctor’s prescription (or, as it’s known in the cannabis industry, a “recommendation”), are violating the law and could find themselves unable to own or purchase guns as a result. However, it’s been more of a theoretical consideration until now, says Missouri firearms instructor Don Pind.

    The inside of the Borderline Bar & Grill, where a light shines on the scene of a mass shooting on November 8, 2018.

    As the Thousand Oaks community faces the aftermath of a deadly mass shooting and raging wildfires, Brian Hynes must decide whether or not he will reopen the Southern California establishment that became a “horrific scene” after 12 people were killed last week, CNN reported.

    The Borderline Bar & Grill has routinely been a place of comfort for residents of the town 40 miles west of Los Angeles but has remained closed following the tragic night of November 7 when a Marine veteran opened fire inside the establishment before taking his own life.

    Owner Brian Hynes has not determined whether or not to reopen the Western-themed bar but knows eventually he will come to a decision.

    “With what Borderline is to…my community, I don’t know if [reopening] is going to feel right,” he told CNN’s Brook Baldwin on Monday. “But once I stand inside that building, it’s going to be like going to my childhood home, and I’ll know. I’ll know then.”

    Sketchy Car Sitting on the side of the road at night.

    Ten-year-old Maddison Raines was walking near a park in Arizona with her friend when she was approached by a strange man in a white SUV. The man covered his face when he told the little girl that her brother had been in a serious accident and that he’d been instructed to take her home. According to People, Raines was not about to be fooled. She asked the stranger what her family’s code word was. Stumped, the man froze and immediately drove away. The girl ran home immediately to alert her family of what had happened. “He just kind of froze, his face. And drove off,” the fifth-grader told Good Morning America, adding, “I was scared because if I would’ve hopped in, I didn’t know what he would do to me.”

    The state of Maryland says that Matthew Whitaker’s appointment as Acting Attorney General is “illegal and unconstitutional,” according to USA Today.

    Through court documents, Maryland’s Attorney General Brian Frosh called for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to be appointed over Matthew Whitaker. Appointing the Deputy to a recently-vacated position such as Attorney General is more standard than appointing the chief of staff, which is what Whitaker was before he was made the Acting AG.

    “Few positions are more critical than that of the U.S. Attorney General, an office that wields enormous enforcement power and authority over the lives of all Americans,” Frosh said Tuesday.

    Whitaker has not been confirmed by the Senate, but he does have a legal background. Whitaker is a former Iowa federal prosecutor.

    A company that Whitaker was previously involved with is currently under FBI investigation for fraud.

    A visual representation of Bitcoin

    Scammers are using Twitter to run a fraudulent scheme to receive bitcoin payments.

    USA Today reports that Tuesday saw the latest in a series of hacks on the social media platform. This time, hackers took control of Target’s twitter account, using the big-box retailer’s profile to send out a post with the cryptocurrency scam. Other accounts were also hit in the cybersecurity breach.

    Hackers were able to control Target’s account for about half an hour, before the company was able to regain access and control of its profile. During that time, hackers posted a tweet that used an ad promising to distribute bitcoins in “the biggest crypto-giveaway in the world!” The ad continued, “We present cryptocurrency payments for your purchases in our store, and want to celebrate this event with all users!”

    Cooked bacon on a tray.

    Some people love bacon so much that they can’t stop eating the salty cured meat — even while at work. Now, one bacon aficionado’s love for the food has gotten her in trouble with the law.

    On Friday, November 9, around 1:30 p.m., a manager at a McDonald’s in Bluffton, South Carolina, repeatedly told one of the restaurant’s cooks to stop eating bacon while working her shift. When the woman would not sampling the store’s meat, the manager was forced to report her activity to her supervisor.

    However, that action did not sit well with the bacon lover, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office report obtained by The State.

    The worker then pushed the manager into a corner and “tried to shove hot crispy bacon in [her] face” to try to force the manager to eat the meat.

    Life support machine

    A real estate agent from Dallas, Texas, who crossed the border for a cut-rate nose job is now on life support with severe brain damage after her Mexico trip went horribly wrong.

    Laura Avila opted to book her rhinoplasty procedure at the Rino Center in Juarez, Mexico, because the price was estimated to be less than a third of the average cost for the same surgery in the United States — which can sit at around $7,500, according to the Daily Mail.

    The 36-year-old traveled with her fiancé, Enrique Cruz, who was with her all the way until the operation began. However, the October 30 procedure turned into an absolute nightmare for the entire family when the anesthesia administrated via Avila’s spine traveled to her brain, instead of downward throughout her body.

    Guide dog walking with a visually impaired person

    A British animal rights activist wants the use of guide dogs to be banned and replaced with technology, citing the fact that the dogs can’t consent to working.

    As Unilad reported, campaigner Wendy Turner Webster shared her unusual opinion on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, explaining that working dogs, including but not limited to guide dogs, sniffer dogs, and police dogs, don’t actually give their consent to be doing a job. Instead, she argued, they are used for the benefit of humans, with no regard for what they might want.

    While she didn’t state that she specifically feels working dogs are unhappy, she pointed out that in some cases — such as police K9s — working dogs are put into dangerous situations, and that doing so is cruel. When it comes to guide dogs, she argued there are “welfare issues.”

    Rapper Tekashi69 arrives in court for his arraignment on assault charges

    Anthony Jemel Ellison, a 31-year-old man, has been arrested and charged for the robbery and assault of rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine back in July this year.

    As reported by Rolling Stone, the official arrest and charging took place on November 6, with the grand jury indicting him at the end of October.

    The incident that took place saw Tekashi 6ix9ine pistol-whipped, kidnapped, and robbed of valuables amounting to approximately $750,000 worth of jewelry, and a further $20,000 in cash. The result of the attack is that Ellison is facing robbery and firearms charges. He has not been charged with kidnapping and has pleaded not guilty to the charges he is facing. His next court date is early in January.

    Ellison was apparently a part of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s management team before the rapper’s career took off.

    Posters requesting the return of Madeline McCann

    The Home Office has confirmed that the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann will be receiving another financial boost with an extra £150,000 (nearly $200,000).

    As reported by the BBC, the new funding will allow the investigation to continue up until the end of March in 2019. So far, a total of around £11.75 million (approximately $15 million) has been spent on the search, nicknamed Operation Grange.

    Madeleine famously disappeared from her bed in her parents’ holiday apartment at the Praia da Luz resort in Portugal in early May 2007, while her parents were having dinner nearby. The preliminary investigation was handled by Portuguese authorities, but after their search came up empty in 2011, Scotland Yard took over.

    In May last year, when the 10th anniversary of her disappearance rolled around, police disclosed that approximately 40,000 documents have been reviewed as part of the case, and over 600 people have been individually investigated. Met Police also conducted a search at the resort in 2014.

    The whopping $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot that sent almost all eligible purchasers to their local gas stations and 7-Elevens to buy a lottery ticket is still unclaimed, as the owner of the winning ticket has yet to come forward, ABC News reported.
