Donald Trump has been president for two weeks, and he is already facing dozens of lawsuits over White House policies and his personal business dealings. That’s far more than his predecessors faced in their first days on the job. The lawsuits started on Inauguration Day, and they haven’t let up.
Most of the 50-plus lawsuits filed so far relate to the travel ban on refugees and nationals from seven mostly-Muslim countries that Trump ordered on Jan. 27. They were filed in 17 different states by doctors, professors, students, people fleeing violence and Iraqis who have worked for the U.S. military. Some were detained in American airports for hours over the weekend; others were barred overseas from boarding planes bound for the U.S. Two Syrian brothers with visas to enter the country say they were turned around at Philadelphia International Airport and sent back to Damascus.
Fun story about my thoughts on Katie McGrath:
When I saw Jurassic World in theaters, I had to take my phone out and text my friend about how /unbelievably/ hot the actress who was playing the assistant was bc I was so blown away. Fast forward to when s2 of Supergirl came out, I started texting the same friend about how hot Lena Luther was. It took me about a month or so to realize it was the same person and BOY HOWDY WAS I A MESS WHEN I REALIZED IT. Moral of the story, I am so unbelievably attracted to Katie McGrath that I accidentally had a crush on her twice.
Honestly it still irks me that those two kids were trying to get away from Zara in Jurassic World because WHO WOULD RUN AWAY FROM KATIE MCGRATH?! Especially the older kid who was a confirmed horndog. It’s just not realistic. Even more unrealistic than dinosaurs being brought back to life.
The Affordable Care Act replacement plan championed by President Trump would hurt low-income people in rural areas that voted heavily for the Republican last fall, according to an NPR analysis of data on proposed subsidy changes from the Kaiser Family Foundation.
The new changes in tax credits and subsidies for older Americans are a big reason many Republicans are hesitant to get behind the American Health Care Act, which is set for a vote in the House on Thursday.
“I felt so damn happy all of a sudden, the way old Phoebe kept going around and around. I was damn near bawling, I felt so damn happy, if you want to know the truth. I don’t know why. It was just that she looked so damn nice, the way she kept going around and around, in her blue coat and all. God, I wish you could’ve been there.”
Donald Trump won the backing of the National Rifle Association and many gun owners by opposing limits to the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms. But since his election and in the early months of his presidency, Trump has not been good for the gun business.
