Trump Disarms Media With Special Gift FIFA Prez Gives Him As The Room Erupts!

Published

on

President Donald Trump was off to a great start with his meeting with FIFA President Gianni Infantino. The FIFA president gave Trump a gift of red and yellow cards, the same ones that the referee would use during a soccer match. The cards are used to hand out penalties and right away Trump came up with something incredibly funny that could be done with the specially gifted cards.

He gave the media the red card. The red card means you’re outta there! That means you’ve done something bad enough to get ejected from the game. In this case, the game is the news, and if you get a red card, then you must be fake news! Obviously, everyone who was there knew it was a joke and it was because of the ongoing feud that Trump has with certain media networks.

However, there were definitely some outrageous replies when it comes to the people who didn’t get the joke or didn’t think it was funny. Those people just don’t have a sense of humor and it’s nice to see that someone at the top level of our country’s government can ease up a bit and make light of situations.

Sometimes we just need a good laugh and President Trump has some very subtle jokes and one-liners that he lets rip as if he was a comedian on stage. Giving the media a red card for their behavior (here’s looking at you, CNN) is just another way of Trump showing his lighter side and keeping people engaged, laughing, and having fun.

Of course, if you dislike Trump, then you probably didn’t think this was funny nor do you have a sense of humor. Here it is in action. Maybe you’ll change your mind when you see it’s all for fun and games. Trump is a funny guy and that’s why millions love him!

The Daily Caller stated:

“FIFA president Gianni Infantino gifted President Donald Trump an official soccer yellow card and red card and joked that the president could use them on unruly reporters.

“In soccer, you know, we have refs,” Infantino told Trump in the Oval Office. “And they have cards. Yellow cards and red cards. Yellow is a warning, and when you want to kick out someone — ”

“Trump appeared delighted by the idea of kicking people out of the Oval Office and immediately grabbed the red card from Infantino. The president then pretended to throw the red card at the press as the rest of the crowd laughed.

“That’s very good,” Trump joked with a big smile. “I like that, I like that.”

“So this can be used for — I don’t know,” Infantino said, as U.S. Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro suggested with glee that Trump use it for his “next media session.'”

What is a red card used for in sports? It’s most popularly used in soccer, but what exactly is it? We know it’s not a good thing to get, that’s for sure. That’s why it’s very funny that President Trump handed the “fake news” mainstream media a card that would have kicked them out of a soccer match!

Let’s take a look at Wikipedia and see what the public editors think of it:

“A red card is used in several different sporting codes. Its meaning differs among sports, but it most commonly indicates a serious offense and often results in a player being permanently suspended from the game (commonly known as an ejection, dismissal, expulsion, removal, or sending-off, often with personal embarrassment). In many sports, the ejected player’s team cannot replace them and thus must continue the rest of the game with one fewer player, which may be a significant disadvantage.

“A red card is shown by a referee to signify that a player must be sent off.[1]:38 A player who has been sent off is required to leave the field of play immediately, must take no further part in the game and cannot be replaced by a substitute, forcing his team to play a man fewer. Only players, substitutes and substituted players may receive a red card. If a team’s goalkeeper receives a red card another player is required to assume goalkeeping duties, so teams usually substitute another goalkeeper for an outfield player if they still have substitutes available.

“Law 12 of the Laws of the Game lists the categories of misconduct for which a player may be sent off. These are:

    1. 1. Serious foul play
    1. 2. Violent conduct
    1. 3. Spitting at an opponent or any other person
    1. 4. Denying the opposing team a goal or an obvious goalscoring opportunity by deliberately handling the ball (this does not apply to a goalkeeper within their own penalty area)
    1. 5. Deliberate fouls that deny an obvious goalscoring opportunity to an opponent moving towards the player’s goal[5]
    1. 6. Using offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures
    1. 7. Receiving a second caution in the same match[1]:39

“Serious foul play is a foul committed using excessive force (i.e., “the player…is deliberately or attempting to injure his/her opponent”).[1]:117 Violent conduct is distinct from serious foul play in that it may be committed by any player, substitute, or substituted player against any person, e.g., teammates, match officials, or spectators.[1]:127

“Once a player has been sent off, they are not permitted to stay in the team’s technical area, and instead typically go to the locker room.[9]

“In most tournaments, a single direct red card (i.e. not one received as a result of two successive yellow ones) results in disqualification of the offending player for one or more subsequent matches, the exact number of matches varying by the offense committed and by jurisdiction. Should a team’s on-field players receive a total of five red cards, it will be unable to field the required minimum of seven players resulting in the game being abandoned. Such a situation would typically be adjudicated as a loss for the ill-disciplined team by the competition organizers.”

BREAKING: Trump FIRE Boss In TOP SPOT – Will Also Replace Chief Of Staff

Published

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to remove Department of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen and is considering replacing chief of staff John Kelly in another shakeup of his administration, a source close to the White House said.

Trump has been mulling removing Nielsen, a Kelly protege who became the secretary at Homeland Security when he left the job to become Trump’s chief of staff, for a number of weeks, the source said.

The source cautioned Trump could still change his mind on the matter, but said he has grown weary of her in his push to harden the U.S. border with Mexico.

Trump has not decided on a candidate to replace Nielsen, the Wall Street Journal reported.

“The Secretary is honored to lead the men and women of DHS and is committed to implementing the President’s security-focused agenda to protect Americans from all threats and will continue to do so,” said Tyler Houlton, a Department of Homeland Security spokesman, in response to an ABC News report about the possible staff changes.

Trump is also considering replacing Kelly, an ardent defender of Nielsen, with Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, Nick Ayers, the source said.

Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general, has sought to bring more stability to the White House operation under the unpredictable Trump.

During his time as chief of staff, he and the president have had a rocky relationship, according to various news reports and Bob Woodward’s best-selling book “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

If they leave, Kelly and Nielsen would join a long list of people who have been fired by Trump or resigned since he took office in January, 2017. That list includes former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was removed by the president last week.

Broke Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Breaks Into Pelosi’s Office, Starts Making BIG Demands

Published

* By

Earlier this week, 29-year-old socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, complained about not being able to afford an apartment in Washington, D.C. until she starts collecting her new check. Not a great start when you’re headed into the big leagues and given a seat at the adults’ table. We’re supposed to trust this woman to weigh in on decisions when she can’t even handle her personal finances on the most basic level.

However, she seems to be putting her financial woes aside, to create more negative waves in Washington with an attack on fellow Democrat Nancy Pelosi. Alexandria is clearly no fan of hers, but she also doesn’t quite understand how things work either.

I have a feeling Alexandria won’t be welcomed with open arms. She’s mentioned before she doesn’t like Pelosi. These far leftists are insane. I also don’t see this Cortez lasting long in office.

Scary to think these people are in office. Get ready for more insanity to come out of Washington.

From The Intercept:

PROTESTERS WITH THE environmental group Sunrise marched on Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi’s office on Tuesday. The group, made up of young people pushing for urgent action on climate change, planned to send a clear message to party leadership just one week after Democrats regained control of the House.

But this was no ordinary protest for the Sunrise activists, who typically stand on the opposite side of politicians. This time, they were joined by Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is just weeks away from being sworn into office.

Rep.-elect Rashida Tlaib of Michigan joined the protesters in a rally at the Spirit of Justice Park near the Capitol on Tuesday morning, but she did not continue on to Pelosi’s office. “This is the most American thing you can do,” Tlaib said of the protest. Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib also attended an event with the Sunrise activists on Monday night.

Members of the progressive political group Justice Democrats also joined the protest, which was attended by more than 150 people. “Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party leadership must get serious about the climate and our economy,” said the group’s communications director, Waleed Shahid, in a statement. “Anything less is tantamount to denying the reality of climate change. The hopeful part is that we’re ushering in a new generation of leaders into the Democratic Party who understand the urgency and will help build a movement to create the political will for bold action.”

A recent United Nations report found that catastrophic effects of climate change, some of which are already upon us, could become widespread as early as 2040. To stave off the crisis, the globe’s economy would have to be put on the equivalent of a war footing, scientists involved with the study concluded.

The protesters, including Ocasio-Cortez, are calling on Pelosi to create and give teeth to a new select committee on climate change.

The proposed committee, called the Select Committee for a Green New Deal, would be similar to something Pelosi established as House speaker in 2007, but with more authority. Back then, Pelosi created the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, and assigned her ally, then-Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., who has a strong environmental record, to chair it. The committee held dozens of hearings over the course of four years, until the tea party-led Congress, which took over in 2010, mothballed it. (The Republicans also got rid of the renewable plates and utensils Pelosi had introduced and replaced them with Styrofoam.)

The problem with that committee, Ocasio-Cortez and the Sunrise activists argue, was that it wasn’t funded well enough and didn’t have the true ability to write legislation. In 2009, Pelosi pushed through cap-and-trade legislation, meant to reduce emissions. But even that package moved largely through the Energy and Commerce Committee — not the select committee Pelosi had created. Markey, who chaired a subcommittee under Energy and Commerce, played a lead role in pushing through the bill, which became known as the Waxman-Markey bill, but it never came to a floor vote in the Senate. Some activists argued that it wasn’t robust enough to meet the threat of climate change, while defenders argued it was the best the chamber could do — and, as it turned out, it was far better than the Senate could do.

Since then, the global climate situation has only deteriorated, with once-in-a-century storms taking place with harrowing frequency, and drought conditions sparking war and mass migration. Dozens of people have died in still-raging fires in California that are the deadliest in the state’s modern history, and hundreds more are missing. “Resting on our laurels won’t bring back the 42 lives lost,” said Sunrise activist Varshini Prakash, referring to the deaths in California.

The proposed committee would, among other things, establish a 10-year plan to transition the U.S. economy to become carbon neutral, according to draft legislation that the activists presented to Pelosi’s office. The activists are also pushing Democratic leaders to reject campaign contributions from fossil fuel industry groups. “We need every person who is going to claim the mantle of Democratic leadership to take the no fossil fuel money pledge,” Prakash said at the sit-in outside Pelosi’s office.

Ocasio-Cortez’s decision to join the protesters and march on her own House leader sets a tone of urgency and combativeness that is rare on Capitol Hill. Walking into the Cannon House Office Building, she told The Intercept something new had to be tried. “The way things are done has not been getting results. We have to try new methods,” she said.

Pelosi may need Ocasio-Cortez’s support to win a second shot at the speakership. The California Democrat can only lose roughly 20 votes on the House floor, and already at least 10 Democrats, largely moderates and conservatives, have said they will not back her. Pelosi has expressed “100 percent” confidence that she’ll be elected speaker.
