Trump: Germans ‘turning against their leaders’ over immigration

US President Donald Trump waded into the political crisis facing Chancellor Angela Merkel Monday, declaring that the German people were “turning against their leadership” over immigration. Trump “We don’t want what is happening with immigration in Europe to happen with us!” he said in a pair of tweets. Trump’s highly intrusive comments came as Merkel was fighting to save her coalition government amid demands by her interior minister to turn back immigrants at the border. They also came as Trump faces mounting pressure of his own to halt a widely condemned US policy of separating children from immigrant parents attempting to cross the US border. “The people of Germany are turning against their leadership as migration is rocking the already tenuous Berlin coalition,” he ...

Ted Cruz Beats Jimmy Kimmel In Charity Basketball Game

Ted Cruz might not test well in the court of public opinion, but there is one court where the Republican senator can dominate: a literal basketball court. The Texas politician bested late night host Jimmy Kimmel in a charity basketball game on Saturday (June 16), with Cruz beating Kimmel 11-9 to benefit the Texas Children’s Hospital. There’s no hard feelings, clearly, with the politically opposed figures making nice on social media after the game; you can catch footage from the Blobfish Basketball Classic (yes, that’s its real name) on Monday (June 18) night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Tommy Lee’s Son Posts Video of Motley Crue Drummer Apparently Unconscious

It wasn’t the happiest Father’s Day in Tommy Lee’s house as the veteran rocker’s son let fly with two stinging social posts.  The former Motley Crue drummer’s relationship with his son has deteriorated badly — and publicly — in recent months. Back in early March, 911 responded to a call after the then-21-year-old allegedly punched his father at their Calabasas property.  After the incident, the rocker claimed he his wife were in bed when Brandon burst in and punched his father, knocking him out. Brandon blamed his father’s drinking problem, which the muso denied on social media. The D.A. declined to file the charges. Matters escalated once more on Sunday when Brandon posted a video of his father seemingly unconscious on a carpeted floor, with the caption “Look a little sl...

Saraki, Offa armed robbers and the law

By Olukayode Majekodunmi UNDER normal circumstances, one would dismiss the recent police invitation of Bukola Saraki, the Senate President as one of the unfolding political drama where the police as presently headed by Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Ibrahim Idris has been shown to be an active participant. That is if it were an isolated incident. But it becomes troubling as it appears to be a pattern of onslaught against perceived opponents of the President and/or his allies. In recent times, there was the reported invasion of Kaduna State NUJ Secretariat by political thugs allegedly under the watch of the Police to attack Senators Shehu Sani and Suleiman Hunkuyi who are known adversaries of Governor El-Rufai, a foremost backer of President Muhammadu Buhari. Shortly after, the Police in...
