Body language experts have analysed Melania at the inauguration and found something disturbing

Blatantly obvious he doesn't care for her. She looks permanently dejected and bemused and the lack of attention and respect he showed her on inauguration day was so sad to see. I bet she never bargained for this when she saw a way out of her miserable old life. She's a trophy wife, and he's a repugnant old man.
01/24/2017 at 18:07
So you've resorted to using body language experts to degrade trump....Foxconn just announced 20,000-50,000 new jobs in the US, trump stopped car firms going to Mexico in return creating jobs and jack ma met trump and announced 5,000 new jobs in the US. Pretty much doing well isn't he. Body language experts what a job to do hey

Hey Obama and family. We, my wife Britta and I (Mogens) would like to say a BIG thank you,
especially to you with the joy which you have given us in many policy areas over the last eight
(8) years. We felt outrage when it became clear that, Hillary had lost the election for Trump,
but life must of course proceed. Good life Obama (family) to come, it deserves.

01/24/2017 at 16:49
Considering Piers is a huge vocal fan of Trump, who is a sexist, a bigoted racist, a crook, an established serial liar, and someone who has often expressed a sexual interest in young girls, including his own daughter, you'd think Pierce would want to stay away from accusing others because of their associates.
I also find it amusing he tries to insult McG as 'just an actor', while Piers is a C-celebrity at best, only known for being an obnoxious idiot.

I'm not sure whether to laugh at Trump. If you're going to try and destroy the world, at least make sure you aren't on it. There is evidence for Climate change, and that humans are partially responsible. Is Trump actually stupid, or is he deliberately trying to annoy everybody?

John is quite right. You can't be racist against white people.
Not quite sure what Kofi's point was.
When a white person does what to another white person, it is racism and not white on white crime.
White people cant be racist to each other!

I think it was the other way round. The clergyman shifted the baton in his right hand and walked past, without looking at President Trump.

I'm by no means a Trump fanboy but the churchman clearly used his stick to render it impossible for his hand to be taken. Independent- you are part of the reason this man is president..

It's now clear. The major OBSTACLE to peace in the Middle East (Arab Palestinian - Israeli conflict) is Israel. Their destiny is to occupy, enslave and subjugate Palestinians for eternity!
01/24/2017 at 14:13
Defiant as always, Israel continues to break international law and provoke the Palestinians. I wonder how many were forced out of their homes this time around, to make way for this settlement?
Israel takes Palestinian land, destroys their homes, kills their mothers, sisters and brothers. It puts the rest of them in an open air prison, cuts off their water and starves them. But when the Palestinians fight back they are called terrorists?
01/24/2017 at 14:13
Israel was waiting for Trump, the first president to support illegal settlements to come into office so they could continue diminishing peace prospects with no constraints. Peace is not on Israel's agenda. They gain too much from the status quo.

Taraji P. Henson snub is B.S.; her speech alone (in "Hidden Figures") explaining why she takes so long to go to the bathroom at NASA was worth a nod. Any role she takes, she swallows and envelops...
While I'm glad Octavia Spencer got the Supporting Actress nod (rightfully so), Henson should've garnered a Best Actress nod.

You don't have to align yourself with Hillary in order to be against Trump, or to be pro- women's rights, so if she didn't feel comfortable doing that, that's her right to do so.

It would be perfect democracy if the British public had all came out to vote and those who did vote were 100% truthfully informed. Many people voted on garbage that can only be called propaganda.

This was the right thing to do things should always go through parliament that's what its there for and why we employ them and that's to make these decisions! Anyone who thinks a Referendum which is them merely asking us our opinion on something is some kind of legally binding democratic vote is a complete and utter moron.

In the rest of the civilised world, free health care at the point of access to those who need it, is seen as a basic human right. Sure we argue about how to pay for it with spiralling costs, older demographics etc, but nobody argues the principal, except in America.
