Bernie Sanders tweeted a sick burn at Donald Trump about his inauguration crowd size

  • On Saturday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted that his followers should hold their own rally, even though his presidential campaign was a series of rallies that continued into his presidency with a rally last weekend in Melbourne, Florida
  • Bernie Sanders promptly replied with a brutal tweet, reminding Donald Trump of the small crowd that gathered for his inauguration.
  • Trump has been more than a little sensitive about the size of his inauguration crowd, which was also objectively smaller in comparison to the crowds for Obama’s inauguration in 2009. Read more (2/25/17 11:09 AM)

Hannibal & church collapses

You may have noticed in the paper yesterday, God dropped a church roof on thirty-four of His worshipers in Texas Wednesday night—just as they were groveling through a hymn. Don’t you think that felt good? – Red Dragon

I collect church collapses, recreationally. Did you see the recent one in Sicily? Marvelous! The facade fell on sixty-five grandmothers at a special Mass. Was that evil? If so, who did it? If He’s up there, He just loves it, Officer Starling. Typhoid and swans– it all comes from the same place. – The Silence of the Lambs

He enjoys seeing the destruction of faith, it’s his favorite thing. It’s like the church collapses he used to collect. The pile of rubble in Italy when the church collapsed on all the grandmothers at that special Mass and somebody stuck a Christmas tree in the top of the pile, he loved that. – Hannibal

This pop-up in Detroit is rallying against Trump’s travel ban by serving Iranian food to the masses

  • Can xenophobia melt away with every bite of warming, hearty Iranian food? The founder of Peace Meal Kitchen hopes so. 
  • The Detroit-based pop-up was created out of a hope to educate Americans about Iran in the most delicious way possible — with a feast of Iranian food.
  • Peace Meal Kitchen founder Mana Heshmati has lived in multiple U.S. cities and noticed “most people did not know what Iranian culture or food entailed,” she said in an email. 
  • “Iran tends to get grouped together with the Middle Eastern food and culture of the countries surrounding it in the Levant region, but it is actually very distinct and unique.” Read more (2/9/17 3:09 PM)

Former NSC spokesman Edward Price resigns over Trump and Steve Bannon

  • A former senior figure at the National Security Council has resigned from the CIA in the wake of Trump’s whirlwind first few weeks in office.
  • Edward Price, a career CIA employee who served as an NSC spokesman for three years until last month, penned an op-ed in the Washington Post explaining he had resigned over Trump’s “disturbing” actions. 
  • Price cited Trump’s casual dismissal of evidence linking Russia to hacks of Democratic Party targets during the election as well as “ego and bluster” during an address to intelligence officials at the CIA in January.
  • The “final straw” was when the CIA director and director of national intelligence were cut as NSC principals and replaced with “the president’s chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, who cut his teeth as a media champion of white nationalism,” Price wrote. Read more (2/21/17 7:09 PM)

Hey!! I’m really late for the party and I guess I will not be able to keep up but I wanted to join the @emimikeweek

So this is my small contribution for the first 2 prompts!

3/08 - Day 1: Firsts
first skate, first kiss, first time, etc.

3/09 - Day 2: Language Barrier
one or both trying to learn the other’s native tongue

I imagined that Emil dragged Michele to the hotel’s bar to cheer him up after what happened at the Rostelecom Cup, and that he asked Sara’s help to impress Michele with some words of encouragement in Italian…BUT she knew better and she taught him some wise words in the dialect of Naples (because it’s canon they’re from Naples, Kubo Sensei said it in one interview

@scribbles-and-co (who’s name is Sara and she’s from Napoli as well!) came on the rescue and gifted me this GEM that I leave the real Sara Crispino explain to you! (because yes, I’m Italian, but I’m from the North East, not the South, so I needed HELP and an explanation as well XD)

This couple is being charged $100 a day for the racist graffiti someone left on their home

  • On Jan. 14, the Stamford, Connecticut, home of Heather Lindsay and her husband Lexene Charles was defaced with racist graffiti — someone had spray-painted the word “n***er” across their garage door. 
  • Now, the couple is being fined $100 by the city — because they refuse to clean off the slur until the authorities “do their job,” as Lindsay told the Stamford Advocate on Monday.
  • After they found the slur on their metal garage door in January, Lindsay and Charles reported the graffiti to Stamford police. But the department told the Advocate they have no witnesses to the incident and that no security cameras in the neighborhood recorded it.
  • Ted Jankowski, Stamford’s director of public safety, told the Advocate police offered to remove the slur — but Lindsay and Charles said not to.
  • She told the Advocate she wants Stamford police to find the person, or people, responsible — and “not just cover it up and sweep it under the table as they have done in the past.”
  • But now, because of the couple’s refusal to remove the slur from their garage door, Lindsay and Charles have been issued a blight citation from the city — which comes with a fine of $100 a day. Read more (2/22/17 11:09 AM)

The Trump administration  is targeting a lot more people for deportation

  • On Tuesday, the Department of Homeland Security released a new set of documents that confirm what many had already suspected: 
  • The Trump administration is making a priority of deporting an incredibly large number of undocumented people.
  • While Trump spoke previously about immigrants who have been convicted of felonies, the newly revealed DHS documents confirm that the administration is taking a more expansive view of which immigrants it plans on prioritizing for deportation.
  • The DHS release went so far as to say the department will target people who “have abused any program related to receipt of public benefits.” 
  • That category may be broad enough to include any undocumented person who has participated in a government program.
  • The memoranda also detail plans to hire 10,000 new ICE officials and increase the number of immigrant detention facilities in the U.S. Read more (2/21/17 1:09 PM)
