Trump Makes Fun of Beto Hand Gestures

President Donald Trump expressed skepticism for the initial theory that the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris burned to the ground due to a “renovation” accident.

“They think it was caused by — at this moment, they don’t know. But they think it was caused by renovation,” President Trump said at his economic roundtable Monday in Minnesota. “And I hope that’s the reason. Renovation. You know, what’s that all about? But it’s a terrible sight to behold.”

Construction on the Cathedral began in the year 1160.

President Trump quickly noticed problems with the response to the Cathedral fire, urging French authorities to send in “flying water tankers” as the Cathedral burned to oblivion.

BLP reported:

In February 10 churches in France were attacked in one week, causing some to fear increasing religious tensions in the migrant-friendly country.

The attacks, allegedly sponsored by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, saw 5 churches vandalized, attacked, or damaged in a one week span.

Roman Catholic publication La Croix International first reported that four churches were vandalized in a week period in February. The first church to be vandalized was in Houilles, France on February 4 at the church of St. Nicholas, where a statue of Mary was found broken into pieces.

The next attack occurred on the following day in Saint-Alain Cathedral in Lavaur, when the parish’s secretary discovered “the smoking remains of the tablecloth of the altar” and the church’s nativity scene. Fortunately the fire did not spread, but a cross and statue of the crucified Christ were also vandalized. The event led the town’s mayor, Bernard Carayon, to remark that “God will forgive. Not me.”

On February 6, police were called to a church in Nîmes, where a tabernacle was destroyed, and human excrement was used to smear a cross onto one of the church’s walls.

In nearby Côte-d’Or, a tabernacle was destroyed and a table cloth was soiled at the Church of Notre-Dame de Dijon on February 9.

On February 10, the church of St. Nicholas was again struck with vandalism, as it had its tabernacle destroyed by a man who would later admit to the crime.

More churches would be vandalized in the following days.

Today the Cathedral of Notre Dame is currently ablaze, as an accident relating to the renovation and construction of the building is suspected to be the cause.

While the event is not suspected to be caused by vandalism, social media users on Facebook are celebrating the devastation with “haha” reactions and comments calling the fire retribution for centuries old French colonization, with one user remarking “Allah is grand.”

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
