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

URL of the original posting site: https://conservativetribune.com/students-t-shirt-steals-show/?

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.

Melania Wears THIS Dress To Church – Liberals LOSE Their Minds


waving flagPublished on December 26, 2016

Isn’t it somehow anti-feminist to comment on a woman’s skirt length? Not if it’s a Liberal and the woman is Melania.

Check out the opening in the Daily Mail:

Melania Trump joined her president-elect husband for midnight mass in Florida wearing a very short mini dress as fellow churchgoers cheered wildly as they arrived.

Trump and his wife kicked off Christmas by attending midnight services at an Episcopal church in Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday night. They were pictured arriving at the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea at about 10.30pm. It is the same church where the couple were married in 2005.

Melania stood by Trump dressed in the mini dress and heels as they spoke to a minister in the church doorway. Most members of the church could be seen standing up and cheering when the Trumps arrived and took their seats.

And what was the controversy all about?

melania-dress

Ok. I’m not really seeing the issue…

This is the same news site that had this to say WAAAAY back in April 2016:

Supermodel Heidi Klum, 42, shows off her killer legs in TINY leather mini-skirt as she steps out for romantic dinner date with boyfriend Vito Schnabel, 29.

She is used to strutting her stuff on the catwalk for the world’s biggest designers. And Heidi Klum is so skilled, she can even make leaving a restaurant look like a glamorous affair…

…The gorgeous mother-of-four cut a striking figure in a very small black leather mini-skirt and matching silk top. The beauty’s tanned and toned legs looked endless, and were given a little extra help with a pair of black leather stud detail stilettos.

heidi-klum

So, why cut down Melania for a skirt that is longer than Heidi Klum’s that had rave reviews? This isn’t really about the length of a skirt.

It’s a way to take a petty swipe at the Trumps because:

a) The Trumps actually went to church on Christmas Eve as opposed to the Obamas that participated in an ‘Escape Room Game’.

and

b) They were welcomed with applause:

The Media (D) is foaming at the mouth to find any reason to be upset with Donald or Melania even when they do the right thing. According to Glamour magazine, it’s a ‘DO’ to wear a shorter hemline for an evening event. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that a midnight service is an ‘evening event’ even if it is a church service.

It’s a good thing we’re now on the look-out for ‘fake news’ because this is one giant nothingburger.

LMAO: Melania TROLLS Hillary & Liberals With ‘PUSSY BOW’ Blouse at Debate

If this was intentional, it shows a level of class and subtlety that Hillary could never pull off. Because .. well … class and subtlety are not Hillary’s (pant) suit.

Melania Trump, wife of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, wore a Gucci blouse to the th0h69c3rtsecond presidential debate that is called a “pussy bow.”

The potential First Lady’s wardrobe choice came as her husband faced blistering criticism over a recorded conversation in 2005 in which he joke about groping women. One of the words he used included a crude reference to the female anatomy.

In addition to apologizing several times since the video emerged, Trump also pointed at former President Bill Clinton’s behavior towards women and the way in which Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton treated his accusers.thtkada44h

Four of those accusers appeared with Trump at a press conference prior to the debate, and were seated in the front row at the debate at Washington University in St. Louis.

The Gucci “pussy-bow” blouse retails at Net-a-Porter.com for $1,100. The site’s editors note: “Pussy-bow shirts are one of Gucci’s signature silhouettes. New for Pre-Fall ’16, this fuchsia style is cut from silk crepe de chine for a languid drape. We think it’s a chic way to elevate office or weekend looks.”th5ugljmxn

Social media exploded after the debate with speculation about Mrs. Trump’s blouse. “If Melania Trump is trolling us, this would be the sickest thing ever. I detest conspiracy theories, but a man can still dream,” wrote Sky Palma of Deadstate.

A Trump campaign spokesperson reportedly said that Mrs. Trump’s sartorial choice was “unintentional.” Breitbart

Melania Trump says she was offended by her husband Donald Trump‘s “unacceptable” sexual remarks about women, but is asking the nation to accept his apology. Melania Trump said in a Saturday statement that the “words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me.” 

“This does not represent the man that I know. He has the heart and mind of a leader.”

The audio released by the Washington Post on Friday revealed a vulgar conversation Donald Trump had in 2005, describing an unsuccessful attempt to seduce a married woman, and saying that “when you’re a star” women let you “do anything.”

At the time, Trump had been married to Melania for a few months.

Trump offered a defiant apology late Friday night, noting that he “never said I’m a perfect person nor pretended to be someone I’m not.” “These words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong and I apologize,” the GOP presidential nominee said.

Melania Trump says she hopes “people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world. “Never-Hillary-Egl-sm

When tolerance becomes a one way street

The people claiming to support “WOMEN” took to social media and proceeded to call Melania every disgusting name in the anti-woman book – many times over, as the graphic below shows.

Apparently, the “loving liberals” only care about women who believe in the same warped and hypocritical BS they do.

Sorry ladies, if you’re not all, “#ImWithHer” you’re just another plastic slut, bitch, whore, who acts like a skank-tramp. Remember that the next time a liberal refers to Trump as a sexist bigot.

Ann Coulter Letter: Michelle’s Speech Was Trite, Too


waving flagCommentary by  Ann Coulter  | 

Michelle's Speech Was Trite, Too

When MSNBC signed off at 3 a.m. the first night of the Republican National Convention, they were still talking about Melania’s speech. For five solid hours, MSNBC had been obsessing over two paragraphs of Melania Trump’s speech that were nearly identical to Michelle Obama’s 2008 convention speech. 

The similar passages were:

— The only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams!

— Your word is your bond!

— May your tomorrows be brighter than your yesterdays!

— From tiny acorns great oaks grow!

MSNBC covered the banal sayings as if Melania had been caught selling secrets to the Soviets. All night, commentators somberly intoned, It’s essential that the campaign get out in front of this. Trump needs to apologize … Now is the time for him to demonstrate crisis management skills — and this IS a bona fide crisis. gag me
The network presented a split screen presentation of the two paragraphs next to each other, with a color-coded bar showing when the plagiarism becomes more intense. Hosts read the corresponding parts of the speeches over and over again. Lawrence O’Donnell pronounced: “This is serious.” If you’re on MSNBC and traffic in outrage and sanctimony every day, you can lose your bearings and not even realize what an idiot you’ve become.
MSNBC called in experts from various fields — a linguist from MIT, a psychiatrist specializing in pathological self-destructive impulses — and now, let’s go to Jacques Truffaut in Paris! Well, Brian, the French here are just getting a translation of the speech as we speak, and I can tell you they are shocked.extra bowl of stupid
(Yes, the moderator for MSNBC’s hysterical coverage of Melania’s “plagiarism” was Brian Williams, who must have been trying to quietly excuse himself from someone else’s embarrassing verbal blunders.)
Not one single person on MSNBC said, “Yeah, um, can we talk about something else because this is so lame and trivial, we risk looking like sissies.”
Huffington Post, Gawker and Jezebel pulled all-nighters to hoot and sneer at the prospective first lady’s speech. The following day, Andrea Mitchell devoted half her show to Melania’s “plagiarism.” In a few days, we’ll be seeing, DAY 5: NO APOLOGY FOR PLAGIARIZED PARAGRAPH!
Listen to yourselves, MSNBC! Your obsession with the “theft” of these saccharine sentiments only reminds people how trite Michelle Obama’s speech was. (Which you adored.)
More shocking than the fact that Melania used some of the same expressions from Michelle’s speech is that someone heard these hackneyed phrases and said, “I KNOW EXACTLY WHERE I’VE HEARD THAT BEFORE!” Haven’t you heard these platitudes a thousand times before?
Kids spend half the day affirming how special they are. I am somebody! I can do anything! The world is my oyster!
Personally, I think it’s a creepy and cynical thing to do. We ought to be honest with people. You can do some things and have a happy life, but there are other things you probably can’t do. Most of you are never going to be a nuclear scientist, an NFL quarterback or a dancer with the Joffrey Ballet.
No one wants to state the obvious because it involves making fun of both Melania and Michelle, but the fact is: It’s impossible to “plagiarize” meaningless twaddle.
Obviously, Melania’s speechwriter didn’t think up those words — and neither did Michelle’s. You can hear the same thing at any third-rate college commencement, at Orientation Day at Excel academies, at motivational speakers’ corporate events, and right now, in the greeting card aisle of your local Rite Aid.
Not even Hallmark cards could claim authorship because there were probably caveman drawings with rainbows that said, “You can achieve anything you set your mind to!”
If I were giving a speech and suddenly burst into, “We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets …” you’d have a right to say, “Um — Ann, did you write that part about fighting on the beaches yourself?  But if I say: “The only limit to your achievement is your dreams!” no one can claim the rights to those words because they’re insipid nothings.
No one invented “the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams,” anymore than I invented “Hey — how you doing?” There’s nothing there! These are phrases designed to allow you to make sounds while moving your mouth.
People who wanted to hate Melania thought her speech was godawful, and the ones who like her thought it was awesome and are now requesting copies of the speech to use at the office.
But all that actually happened was: Melania Trump gave a typical first lady speech.
I can’t remember a first lady speech that was memorable. In fact, it would take me a week to think of any convention speech that was memorable. I’ll see your “the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams” and raise you, “I LOVE YOU, WOMEN!” (Ann Romney, 2012 Republican Convention.)
Some people like this stuff. There’s a reason we have a greeting card business.
The media wanted a catastrophe the first night of the Republican National Convention because they’d already written the chyrons for it. Unfortunately, the fact that Melania gave a typically banal first lady speech was the best they got, so MSNBC just powered through with “an attitude of gratitude” realizing that “satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment.” I wrote those myself.

Uncovered Mailing Address Reveals Shocking Person Linked to Nude Melania Trump Ad


waving flagBy: Wilmot Proviso on March 28, 2016

A super PAC that launched a smear ad on Melania Trump in Utah has been linked to former GOP presidential candidate and Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina. According to Breitbart, the Make America Awesome PAC, which ran the smear ad in Utah about Melania’s nude modeling, is run by political consultant Liz Mair.

Unfortunately, Mair isn’t that bright. On Make America Awesome’s website, it tells potential donors, “If you would like to donate by mail, send checks to: Make America Awesome PO Box 26141 Alexandria, VA 22313.”

Problem: P.O. Box 26141 is also the mailing address for Carly for America, the official organization for Fiorina’s former presidential campaign. It’s since been re-purposed as a general-issue political action committee.

Whoops.

Mair’s advertisement touched off a Twitter war between the Cruz and Trump campaigns over each candidate’s wives, during which Cruz has vigorously accused Trump of playing dirty. Fiorina, for her part, has been an ardent supporter of Cruz’s campaign these last few weeks, linking the original smear ad back to Cruz for the first time.

The smear advertisement against Melania (it’s disgusting and underhanded enough that we’re not going to show it here; I assure you that you can find it easily enough on Facebook if you’re so inclined) also managed to incur the wrath of some liberals who felt that it was “shaming” Melania.

Mair was open about the fact that she didn’t actually believe in the ad’s content, she just wanted to win.

lm01

And if that wasn’t enough, here’s a more succinct summation of Mair’s moral scruples on the issue.

lm02

Lovely. Of course, you, loyal reader, could argue that Mair paid for the ads; can we really prove collaboration between Fiorina and Mair?

While we can’t definitively prove it, we can come pretty close. See, Make America Awesome’s filings with the FEC show that, on its own, the PAC doesn’t have enough money to Make America Even Slightly Different Than Before. It only lists seven donors who gave over $200, in 2015-16, for a  total of only $2,000. (That will pay for the post office box, but not a whole lot more.)

Fiorina made a bold stand for women’s issues during the campaign, pointing out Hillary Clinton’s “war on women” on multiple occasions. It’s a shame to see her, acting as a surrogate for Ted Cruz, maligning Donald Trump’s wife as a sort of modern-day Jezebel to get votes.

In one simple act, both Mair and Fiorina have thrown away whatever scruples and decency they may have had. If it turns out a desperate Ted Cruz is behind this, too, we can only say the same for him.
