President Donald Trump punched back at the widow of a soldier killed in Niger on Twitter this morning. “I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from the beginning, without hesitation!” Trump tweeted this morning, less than an hour after Johnson said otherwise in an interview with Good Morning America. Myeshia Johnson gave her first TV interview this morning to George Stephanopoulos, saying what hurt her most when…
Melania Trump is lonely and obsessed with Michelle Obama. At least in Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s version of events anyway. The Nigerian author has penned a short story for the The New York Times’ style magazine, T, which paints the first lady-referred to throughout only as “Mrs T”-as the reluctant wife of the president who displays an unease with her political fame. And she’s a little bit racist, too. Adichie’s “micronovel,” Janelle Asked to the Bedroom, envisions a conversation between a forlorn Trump and her pilates instructor Janelle. The story was published on the Times website and on the T magazine Instagram page. In the short story, Janelle is unusually called to join Mrs T in her bedroom,

A group of friends swimming at Hahei Beach, New Zealand on October 21 got a major shock when a pod of killer whales wandered close to shore and sent the friends running out of the water. “[We] spotted three orcas swimming about 50 metres offshore,” Kelly Lindsay, who filmed the encounter, said. “[We] weren’t aware of the orca at this stage due to the waves; it wasn’t until one of the orca branched away from the pod towards the shore that onlookers started shouting out to the swimmers.” TVNZ reported four orcas were spotted near the shore Coromandel Beach, where Lindsay and friends were enjoying their long weekend. A lifeguard said the whales come around to feed on stingrays and this particular pod got about 10 metres away from the beach. It this footage, the group of friends panic and run out of the water as the killer whale’s black fin emerges out of the water a few metres away from them. Their delighted screams can be heard off-screen before the orca begins waving its flippers out of shallow waters. “[When] the fin emerged from the water… they turned and ran back to the shore in excitement and shock,” Lindsay said. “It was a once in a life time experience to see such a beautiful animal up close in the wild. We won’t be forgetting this any time soon.” Credit: Kelly Lindsay via Storyful
Parents in a certain Georgia community might now be a little nervous for back-to-school season. On a Fall morning in 2015, East Paulding Middle School's sign welcomed the return of students with one glaring error: "We Are Glad You Are Hear." After area resident Michael Graham drove past the sign, he snapped a photo and shared it on local News Radio 106.7's Facebook page. It's since been passed around across the nation, and it's serving as the ultimate lesson in proofreading . . . and that spellcheck can't always save you. Hear, hear!
All five living former U.S. presidents gathered in College Station, Texas, on Saturday evening to pay tribute to America's tradition of volunteerism and raise money for the victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. At one point, all five ex-presidents - Jimmy Carter, George. H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama - were on stage, and Carter spoke, then Clinton. While Clinton was talking about the enduring disaster in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the younger Bush leaned over to Obama, making him laugh. You can watch the moment at the 3:35 mark: Or you can wonder what was so dang funny in this silent clip of the moment Obama cracked up and Bush looked on mischievously:
