President Trump Takes Another Shot At Congresswoman Who Exposed Him

Donald Trump continues to go after Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) on Twitter following her account of Trump’s insensitive remarks to Myeshia Johnson, widow of the late Army Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed in an ambush in Niger.

According to the Congresswoman, Trump told the widow that her husband “must have known what he signed up for.”

So in classic Trump fashion, he spent the weekend hitting back at Rep. Wilson, first on Saturday:

Twitter had many thoughts.

Many hit back at Trump for going after Wilson…

But let’s face it, Trump’s behavior is hardly surprising at this point.

Insulting people via Twitter is what he does:

But it’s disturbing all the same.

Woman Takes Selfies With Every Guy Who Catcalls Her For A Month

Noa Jansma is a 20-year-old student in Amsterdam who has turned the unpleasant and sometimes very scary experience of street harassment into an art project, Bored Panda reports. On her Instagram account @DearCatcallers, Jansma wrote about her intention of taking a selfie with every person who catcalls her as she walks down the street:

Jansma took selfies with the alleged catcallers for the entire month of September, and they are all ages, races, and walks of life. The only thing they really seem to have in common is supposedly exhibiting zero shame in what they’re doing. Some even cozy up to Jansma like they’re friends with her, which is maybe the most unsettling thing of all:

Beginning in 2018, catcalling in the Netherlands can be subject to a find of almost $ 220. It seems like a law that would be difficult to implement, but then again, if cat callers are this bold, Jansma and young women like her will be able to identify their harassers immediately. They’ll have the receipts.

Photo Of People Guarding Empty Lawn For Pro-Trump Rally Takes Internet By Storm

Saturday’s “Mother of All Rallies” turned out to be anything but.

The D.C. rally, which was expected to draw thousands of Trump supporters to the national mall, only managed to attract a few hundred attendees.

Even a neighboring rally of Insane Clown Posse fans managed to garner a larger crowd:

A photo of dozens of guards stationed along the perimeter of the mostly-empty pro-Trump rally quickly spread on Twitter:

People agreed that maybe the rally…over-estimated their security needs…

In the end, it was not a great day to be a Trump supporter…

Poster Featuring Martin Luther King Jr. And Donald Trump Takes Internet By Storm

[unable to retrieve full-text content]

The thought-provoking image is by a Haitian artist.

With the recent reemergence of emboldened hate groups spewing their rhetoric all over public forums online and in society, many are drawing parallels to the civil rights era of the 1950s and 60s.

Much of the blame for the recent rise in overt racism has been put on President Trump, who, after the deadly protest in Charlottesville, was hesitant to denounce the racist and white nationalist fringe groups responsible, and instead blamed both sides.

So who better to silence Trump than famed civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.:

The powerful image had many wondering who the artist was:

It turns out the artwork is by Haitian artist Watson Mere, and is entitled My Brother’s Keeper:

Incredibly enough, Mere’s artwork is all done on Microsoft Paint, and, according to his website, he “finds inspiration from the love, struggles, happiness, and pain of the people of the African diaspora. Each piece is designed to spark the viewer’s imagination as to interpret the work of art that stands before them. With the screen as his canvas and the mouse as his “brush,” Watson meticulously transforms social issues like race, poverty, and religion into extraordinarily rare and unique works of art. This is his passion.”

You can see some of Mere’s artwork in this video:

And while some didn’t care for the wording of the tweet, they still believed the image was worth sharing:

Perhaps there’s still hope:

Mom Points Gun At Barber When Son's Haircut Takes Too Long

Mom Points Gun At Barber When Son’s Haircut Takes Too Long

We’ve all had a hairdresser or barber take for-freaking-ever when cutting our hair.

Look, I like idle conversation as much as the next person, but some haircutters take it to a whole new level. If I’ve been sitting in a chair for more than 40 minutes, especially with the little bit of hair I’ve got left, then you’re pretty bad at your job. Even worse are the barbers who don’t say anything and still take forever. Which can make a 45 minute haircut seem like some kind of insufferable pilgrimage through salon purgatory.

And as much as I hate waiting in the barber shop chair for extended periods of time, I can say with full confidence I don’t hate it as much as this woman.

Because she pulled a gun on a barber when her son was sitting in his chair for too long.

Police are on the lookout for the woman who allegedly got pissed off that her son’s barber was taking their sweet old time clipping his hair. So much so, that she whipped a gun out on them.

“I got two clips. I’ll pop you!” the woman screamed as the barber cut her child’s hair. 

View post on imgur.com

The victim finished cutting the child’s hair and then the suspect left the barber shop with both of her children.

That’s right, this woman is a mother to two children.

If you’ve got any information that can lead to the identification or arrest of this woman, contact the police. (h/t cleveland19)

Mourning Dog Takes Care Of Stuffed Animals Like Her Own Puppies

HELP, MY HEART!! Look at this good dog. She’s trying so hard to take care of her puppies, but her puppies are three stuffed toys:

BuzzFeed reports that teen Twitter user Xavier Hernandez shared an image of his dog with her replacement family, captioning it, “So my dog was pregnant and she lost all 3 of her puppies so my mom bought her these toys and she thinks they’re her puppies.” Xavier told them that the dog’s name is Twinkle, and her puppies died during their birth. She seemed depressed after her loss, and Xavier’s mom gave her the three toys thinking it might help comfort her. Apparently, she bonded to them right away.

“She didn’t do anything without them and wouldn’t let anyone touch them,” explained Xavier. Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, my face is melting faster than the polar ice caps. On the brightish side, Xavier does seem to think Twinkle is doing better, and taking care of her toys has lifted her spirits. But it’s still freaking killing everyone on the Internet:

Twinkle, Twinkle, little star, you are the best dog by far. Cuddle your baby toys close, cuddle your doggos closer.

Teen Takes The Shoes Off His Own Feet After Seeing Homeless Man With Holes In His

Labor Day is typically Summer’s last stand. It’s a 3 day weekend for most, which means we have 3 nights and 2 days to go out and enjoy ourselves, with one full day to recover before tackling a shortened work/school week.

A few people out in Louisville, Kentucky opted to spend their Labor Day weekend differently.  Fourteen year old LaRon Tunstill, better known as RonRon locally, was taking part in a barbecue set up by PurpMe (People Uplifting Real People) to feed the homeless, when he noticed a gentleman walking along the side of their spread.

He sparked a conversation with the man, and while they were talking, saw the tattered pair of shoes he was wearing.  Jason Reynolds, the founder of PurpMe, saw the shoes. “The soles were completely gone.  His toes literally touched the ground.”

RonRon immediately took off his brand new Nike Air Jordans and gave them to the man, who was reluctant to accept them at first. “At first he was like ‘no, I can’t take these because these are too expensive.’ I told him, ‘take it’ because it’s what God wanted me to do.” RonRon told WAVE.

Reynolds, still in awe of the exchange, spoke:

“It was life-changing to see that powerful moment, Just a year before, he (Tunstill) was getting into trouble and now you see that he’s changing. He used to get in a lot of trouble when I first met him.”

After RonRon’s gift, Reynolds started a GoFundMe page where 100% of the donations would go to helping children in the area.  

“I always tell the kids one simple act is all it takes. Maybe you can’t change the world but you can change someone’s world.”

Hero Takes Matters Into His Own Hands After A Dog Was Left In A Boiling Hot Car

It’s getting warm out, and it happens to be getting even warmer if you’re wearing fur. One man in Ontario, Canada, decided to take matters into his own hands when he saw a dog locked inside a car when temperatures were more than 90 degrees.

Wilson Costa, who shot a video of the scene and posted it on Facebook, told Today the owners hadn’t been seen for about 50 minutes despite an announcement asking them to get their dog out of the car.

One unidentified man evidently couldn’t wait any longer, smashing the back window with a rock and unlocking the door. The dog was soaking wet as the man pulled him to safety, “you’re so gross,” one bystander jokingly remarks as the dog celebrates. “Yeah I know, your owner is an asshole,” she adds. 

It’s legal to break into a car if an animal is in imminent danger in a couple of states. These include Arizona, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, Tennessee, California, Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan and Massachusetts. 

So if you live in one of those states and don’t want your BMW trashed, don’t leave your dog in there.
