Massive Crowd of Protesters Gathers Outside the White House

Source: Mediaite

Protests outside the White House in Washington D.C. grew Tuesday night a day after Trump said he would “end the riots and lawlessness.” Washington D.C. has a 7 p.m. curfew in effect while people have continued to protest.

The growing crowds comes a day after peaceful protesters had tear gas and smoke bombs fired toward them minutes before President Donald Trump spoke on the Rose Garden at the White House. After his address on federal response, Trump left for St. John’s Episcopal Church for a photo op holding a Bible.

Australian Prime Minister calls for investigation after reporters violently attacked by U.S. police

Source: Mediaite

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is calling for an investigation after an Australian news crew was apparently assaulted by police as they covered protests outside of the White House Monday evening.

Channel 7 reporter Amelia Brace filmed a segment on the George Floyd protests Monday, that documented D.C. police firing tear gas at the peaceful protesters just as President Donald Trump was about to give his Rose Garden speech. While Brace was reporting that her cameraman got hit by a rubber bullet, her segment suddenly showed police charging at the crowd before one officer lunged at their camera.

The live footage shocked Brace’s colleagues back in the Sunrise news studio, who remarked that “they’re not discriminating between protesters and the media here.” When Brace got back in front of the camera and confirmed the crew was alright, she continued to report on the chaos while saying “you heard us yelling ‘we were media,’ but they don’t care… They were quite violent and they do not care who they’re targeting at the moment.”

The incident happened as police forced protesters to disperse so that Trump could visit St. John’s Episcopal Church for a photo-op.

China Rips Trump for 'Hiding' During Nationwide Protests

Source: Daily Beast

Chinese officials and state media have ridiculed Trump for “hiding” from the protests sweeping across the nation. Many have accused the United States of hypocrisy and compared the unrest to the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong.

Hu Xijin, editor in chief of state-controlled tabloid the Global Times, wrote: “Mr. President, don’t go hide behind the Secret Service... Go to talk to the demonstrators seriously. Negotiate with them, just like you urged Beijing to talk to Hong Kong rioters.”

China’s foreign ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, posted George Floyd’s last words—“I can’t breathe”—to Twitter with a screenshot of her American counterpart, State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus, condemning China’s crackdown on Hong Kong.

The Global Times published clips from the protests, including one of a police vehicle ramming into protesters in New York with the caption: “Peacekeepers or mass murderers?”

We should all be very thankful Biden is our nominee

He just visited the site of George Floyd protests in Wilmington Delaware.

One thing that's apparent is that his instinct to comfort and empathize with people is truly genuine.

The complete opposite of Trump.

All the chicken littles who think this situation will hurt Dems are dead wrong.

Just my 2 cents.

Selfish GOP asshole refuses temperature checks which help to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The source provided a slightly different headline, but I fixed it for them.

GOP Lawmaker Refuses Temperature Check

Ohio state Rep. Candice Keller (R) “refused to have her temperature taken at work this week, calling the practice an invasion of her privacy,” the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Said Keller on Facebook: “The reason I’ve had to put up with so much opposition over the last 4 years as a Representative is that NO ONE GETS TO CONTROL ME. I mean, NO ONE. I have civil rights and I have a right to privacy.”

Has Susan Collins talked about Trump's tweet referring to dead Democrats?

Do you think she's more than deeply concerned this time?

Maybe she might even throw in a furrowed brow?

Trump's Net Approval IMPLODES in His Favorite Poll -- Down 15 Points in 3 Weeks!

Trump’s Net Approval IMPLODES in His Favorite Poll — Down 15 Points in 3 Weeks

President Donald Trump got more bad polling news, as his net approval cratered in a pair of new surveys — including the one he often cites because it typically shows him faring better than others.

Last week, Trump lashed out at Fox News after their poll showed him losing to former Vice President Joe Biden by eight points, and his net approval dropping by 20 points. But on Wednesday, he got even worse approval news from a pair of national polls.

The Politico/Morning Consult poll had his net approval at a whopping minus 17, with 40 percent approving of the job Trump is doing and 57 percent disapproving. That marked a 7-point drop in that poll since May 8, when his net approval was at minus ten.

But in the Rasmussen daily tracking poll, which Trump and his White House frequently cite because Trump tends to overperform in it, the bloodbath was even bloodier. On May 8, Trump was dead even with 49 percent approval and 49 percent disapproval.

Three weeks later, Trump’s net approval has sunk by fifteen points, with 42 percent approval and 57 percent disapproval.
