Tree of Life Rabbi Says He Was ‘Surprised’ by President Trump’s Behavior During Pittsburgh Visit


Reported By Nick Givas | November 1, 2018 at 6:21am

Tree of Life Synagogue Rabbi Jeffrey Meyers said Thursday on CNN’s “New Day” that he was “pleasantly surprised” by President Donald Trump’s warmth and compassion during his visit to Pittsburgh.

“I was privileged to have a private 15 or 20 minutes with the (Trump) family. The president was very warm, very consoling,” Meyers said.

“He put his hand on my shoulder and the first question he asked me was, ‘Rabbi, tell me how are you doing?’ And I must say throughout the time we spent together I was pleasantly surprised by a warm and personal side to the president that I don’t think America has ever seen,” he added.

Meyers said he told the president about his ordeal and said they discussed the issue of hate speech, along with other personal matters.

“I told my personal story of my experience, which they found quite shocking and upsetting,” he said.

“We talked. I shared the same message that I shared with you throughout the course of the week — that hate speech has no place in our society, that hate speech leads to actions of hate. Hate speech led to the death of seven of my congregants and 11 total in my building.

“And we shared other personal conversation that I’d respectfully like to keep personal.”

Meyers said it was important to walk the president through the memorial so he could know who was taken and fully understand how devastating the shooting was on the community.

“I have been through this a few times. I don’t know how people would react to see that horror. It’s seared in my brain and it’s a sight I’ll never forget the rest of my life,” Meyers said.

“After we lit the 11 memorial candles, I chanted … the memorial prayer in Hebrew and in English. The president then asked me if I would escort he and the first lady to the makeshift memorial … and I gave him a bit of a background story about each person because it was a human being who lived, who was a good, decent person and the president needed to know something about these people because they, too, were his citizens.”

Trumps Spend Thanksgiving Serving Meals To Active Duty Armed Forces


Reported by Benny Johnson | Reporter At Large | 1:53 PM 11/23/2017

The president and first lady chose to spend part of their Thanksgiving feeding and thanking active duty members of the Armed Forces. President Trump and Melania Trump showed up to Coast Guard Station Lake Worth Inlet to deliver meals to dozens of active Coast Guardsmen who had to work on Thanksgiving.

The First family served sandwiches, fruit, juice, cookies, muffins and sodas they had donated to sixty active duty coast guardsmen, some who were heading out to patrol soon thereafter.

According to the White House Pool report, Trump encouraged the men and women in the room:

“It is an honor to be here,” the president said.

He noted that “there is no brand that went up like the Coast Guard” during the hurricanes in Texas, the Gulf Coast and Puerto Rico. He recognized the Coast Guard for rescuing 16,000 people in Texas after Hurricane Harvey, a number that he says few know or believe.

“Incredible people, you’ve done an incredible job,” Trump said.

The First Lady jumped in to tell the group: “Happy Thanksgiving!” She smiled and waved with both hands as she spoke.

The president offered to take questions from the Coast Guard, although no one spoke up — which the president says he loves.

Student’s T-Shirt Steals Show During Melania Visit


Reported By Ben Marquis | October 24, 2017 at 3:11pm

First lady Melania Trump — joined by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos — paid a visit to a school in Detroit on Monday afternoon to spend some time speaking with the children.

According to Politico, Trump spoke to the students about identifying and guarding against the act of bullying, and urged them “be yourself” while also making sure to treat each other with “respect and compassion.”

On top of that, she also urged the children to always say “no” to alcohol, cigarettes and drugs, and joined the students in the cafeteria to promote her “No One Eats Alone” campaign that encourages students to take it upon themselves to join others sitting alone at a table at lunch time.

While the visit went quite well and Trump was well-received by the children — with whom she is obviously at ease — one particular student garnered some attention for the shirt that he was wearing during the visit, according to Independent Journal Review.

The young boy was wearing what appeared to be a Nike T-shirt bearing the words “Destroy Excuses,” a message likely intended as a challenge for those pushing to improve themselves in their workouts or athletics, but one that can also be applied to just about every other aspect of life.

To be sure, that message needs to be heard by failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who can’t seem to come up with enough excuses as to why she lost the 2016 election, as well as the rest of her Democrat Party, which always seem able to find an excuse for bad behavior from anybody … provided they share the same liberal ideology.

The “Destroy Excuses” message also needs to be taken to heart by the Republican Party, which for years have begged and pleaded with voters to grant them more control and power to push forward their agenda — yet have done next to nothing but offer up excuses now that they hold the House, Senate, and the presidency.

In the rest of the non-politicized world (or what little that’s left of it), the message of destroying excuses can be applied to one’s job, studies, relationships or virtually any other of life’s endeavors in which obstacles need to be overcome, not excused and allowed to persist.

This young student’s T-shirt bore a message that exemplifies the attitude of Trump and his supporters, one of taking responsibility, assigning accountability and persevering towards victory no matter what. It is a message we all should adopt and hold dear.

Trump Says Kathy Griffin Should Be Ashamed of Herself After Posting Image


URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/trump-statement-kathy-griffin/

Apparently, holding up an effigy of the president’s decapitated, bloody head can get you into trouble. Who knew?

Well, Kathy Griffin now knows. Even the “covfefe” kerfuffle didn’t knock the D-list celebrity out of the headlines after her horrifying photo shoot. Now, she’s gone from having one night a year on a major television network to zero nights a year, as CNN has decided Griffin is actually unfit to get plastered with Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon on live TV this New Year’s Eve.

That’s pretty brutal — and it was all before President Trump decided to lay into her.

In a tweet, the president called Griffin’s actions “sick” and said the beheading photo had an impact on his family.

According to the U.K. Daily Mail, first lady Melania Trump also released a statement in which she criticized Griffin, saying that “(a)s a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing.”

“When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it,” she added.

According to a report in TMZ, Barron Trump was left panicked and screaming when the image of Griffin holding his father’s bloodied head showed up on the television news.

“He’s 11. He doesn’t know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad,” a source told TMZ.

The outrage over Griffin’s photo shoot was exacerbated by the fact that her “apology” didn’t actually mention the president or his family by name. Instead, the comic said she was sorry for “cross(ing) the line.”

That’s not going to work this time — not when you’ve threatened a man with effigial beheading on camera. That’s the kind of thing the Islamic State group does, not anti-Trump celebrities. This is just the beginning of a massive backlash for Griffin, and halfhearted apologies aren’t going to cut it.

DEAR LIBTARDS: Your Protest Over Dressing Melania Is BACK FIRING, Big Time!

Watch how quickly ‘Love Trumps hate’ become ‘Business Trumps Activism’

Remember how quickly the prominent leftist designers rushed forward to show their Liberal Bona Fides? The designer that’s been sewing curtains together and draping them over Michelle Obama wanted nothing to do with Melania. (As though he even had a shot at that gig. We’ve SEEN what Michelle wears.)

There was another virtue-signalling exercise by artists upset that their art was owned and shown by Ivanka. Morons who gladly accepted PAYMENT for their artwork thought their opinion of what was done with it after the accepted their money actually matters. And the other movement trying to pressure Nordstroms and other chains to pull Ivanka’s products. Because Donald Trump won.derangement-syndrom

They’ve come to realize that Trump’s name is going UP in value rather than down. And cutting themselves out of that loop means giving prominence and potential market share to a rival. It’s called Capitalism, snowflakes… look it up.

What do fashion designers think about dressing Melania on Inauguration Day? They’re actually pretty stoked about it.

It is customary of the First Lady to wear an American designer during her time in Washington, and especially during the inaugural weekend, and designers like Zac Posen, B Michael America, and Tommy Hilfiger are all interested.

…Jean Shafiroff, a New York socialite and philanthropist who is friendly with the Trump family, saw them at the New Year’s Eve Mar-a-lago fest, and told the New York Post that interest is growing with American and foreign designers.

She polled the couture council of the museum at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology to see who wants to dress Melania for her first weekend in the White House, and for the next four years.

Shafiroff told the post that Zac Posen, B Michael America, Victor de Souza and Zang Toi are all very interested.DailyMail

Also, B Michael said ‘Any designer who dresses her will get enormous press.’ (And yes, for a business, ‘enormous press’ is kind of a big deal.)

You can add Tommy Hilfiger to the list. And also, Stefano Gabbana (of Dolce and Gabbana) has been very public in his support of Melania.
