Here’s Some Real News to go Along with Your Morning Java!

Real News – Finally “Reported” Thanks to Donald Trump TV

Well, on Monday, President Trump decided to fight CNN and other widely-known news agencies with his very own “real news” show! It’s very hard for me to write that without feeling a bit nauseous. Here is a link to his Facebook page where you can catch up on all the latest Trump propaganda. Oh – By the way… Trump doesn’t report on anything scandalous within his own administration, so if you’re looking for the real news on that, you’ll need to head back to CNN or the New York Times.

Oh… we’re not done yet! The best part is that Kayleigh McEnany is the “News” Anchor! If you’re not familiar with this lovely woman, you’ll probably remember her from episodes of CNN where she defended Donald Trump and his brand of crazy. We think this will be some great morning entertainment to go along with your morning java!

Stay tuned… we’re going to be watching Trump’s page closely, as he reports on the “real news”!

Just in case you were wondering what the purpose of the ‘real news’ show vs. the mainstream news, here’s this clip!

“And that is the real news”

I think I’ll Have my Cake and Eat it too!

Aaron Carter

Moving on to something a bit more interesting than US Politics, Aaron Carter came out this week as Bi-Sexual. Remember the dancing, singing, boy crush from the 1990’s (viewed in the pic above)? Well, he’s taken to twitter to let everyone know that he’s liked boys and girls since he was 13. At age 17 he had his first experience with a boy.

Aaron posted this on Twitter,

“There’s something I’d like to say that I feel is important for myself and my identity that has been weighing on my chest for nearly half of my life,” Carter wrote. “This doesn’t bring me shame, just a weight and burden I have held onto for a long time that I would like lifted off me.”

We love hearing when people come into their own – Good on ya, Aaron! Check out CNN’s full article here.

Google Strikes Back!

While it’s not as interesting as Star Wars, Google’s dealing with a problem of its own!

We’ve all heard about the tech industry trying to do a better job of diversifying their workforce, as the vast majority of their coders and leadership team are white or Asian males. Well… One software engineer decided to memo out his feelings on the situation and provide his own rational as to why women are not in leadership positions or prevalent in the tech industry.

He wrote,

“Distribution of preferences and abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes and that these differences may explain why we don’t see equal representation of women in tech and leadership,”

Suffice to say, pointing the finger at biological reasons and drawing conclusions based on stereotypical reasoning didn’t work out for this gent! Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, and newly appointed Head of Diversity, Danielle Brown, weighed in on the employee’s memo, stating that his views don’t represent the company’s perspective in any way shape or form. Danielle wrote a memo to all employees, where she said,

“Part of building an open, inclusive environment means fostering a culture in which those with alternative views, including different political views, feel safe sharing their opinions.”

“But that discourse needs to work alongside the principles of equal employment found in our code of conduct, policies, and anti-discrimination laws.”

In addition to the responses crafted by Mr. Pichai and Ms. Brown, other executives of the organization denounced the employee’s essay. The employee was later fired for his essay and discriminatory views.

Oh, No you Di’n’t!

China, one of North Korea’s only allies, announced this week that they support the sanctions against North Korea. Check out the clip below to see what China had to say:

China would like to see a nuclear-weapons-free zone and is willing to jeopardize their economic relationship to do so – Awesome job, China!  Here’s the link to the full CBC article here.

Kill it with Fire!

Wasp Nest

Do you hate those yellow flying things that infiltrate everything at the most inopportune time? Wasps are one of the most annoying pests of all! We’re so glad we found someone who feels the same way we do. In fact, a homeowner in Thunder Bay, Ontario burnt his house down in an effort to get rid of a wasp nest!

Fire crews were called to the scene of the incident after he doused the nest with gasoline and set it on fire. Don’t worry man, we completely identify with this situation. You did the right thing ?.

… This section of the blog wouldn’t be complete without a responsible message:

John Kaplanis, the Thunder Bay Fire Rescue District Chief, said,

“Applying gas and lighting it would not be recommended at any time,” he said. “Things can go wrong in a hurry.” ?
