President Donald Trump's "Homecoming" rally in Sunrise, Florida on Tuesday night hit all of the President's usual marks: profanity, falsehoods, and calls to imprison his 2016 opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

With news that Trump recently took an unexpected trip to Walter Reed Medical Center, Trump falsely claimed that media reports said he had a massive heart attack. While media outlets reported that Trump's hospital visit was unconventional at the least, no reputable outlets speculated what the visit for.


Never one to give up a grudge, Trump repeated the claim that he simply had gone in for one phase of a scheduled physical.

Then things got weird..er.

Trump began talking about having to take his shirt off for the doctor, then went on a tangent about his chest.

"Show us that gorgeous chest. We want to see it. We've never seen a chest quite like it."

The trolling continued the day after the rally when the President of the United States tweeted a picture of himself photoshopped onto Rocky star Sylvester Stallone's body.

Even as a joke, people were cringing at the pettiness of the President, who surely has better things to do.

It brought to light a double standard as well.

The President's supporters champion Trump's obsession with "owning the libs" on their behalf. It's worth wondering, however, when the President will rise above vilifying his critics and trying to unify the country.

It's been three years already, so don't hold your breath.

Since the start of his campaign, President Donald Trump's support among Black voters has remained pitifully low.

Despite claims that he's the "least racist person" alive, Trump told four Congresswomen of color to "go back" where they came from, defended unapologetic white supremacists, put forth racist immigration policies, and currently employs at least one white nationalist in the White House—and that's just during his presidency.

Since her upset primary victory in the summer of 2018, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her progressive agenda have become a favorite target of the Right wing.

The party that claims to champion people who "pull themselves up by their bootstraps" often derides Ocasio-Cortez's former career as a bartender in Manhattan—a position she took after college when her father's death put her family in dire financial straits.

Two months after it emerged in Wuhan, China, the coronavirus has spread throughout Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, North America, and sub-Saharan Africa with nearly 84,000 cases worldwide.

The United States is scrambling to prepare for an outbreak that officials have deemed inevitable—but President Donald Trump and his staff are saying the concern is overblown.

All too often, words seem insufficient to describe the latest scandal or atrocity from the administration of President Donald Trump.

That's usually when The New Yorker steps in.

Famous for its headline-free covers, illustrators have perfectly captured the administration's mob-like tendencies or the subservience of once respected Senators to Trump's every whim.

The State Department is responsible for not only foreign relations and embassy operations outside the USA, they also take care of United States citizens and permanent residents when they work and travel in foreign nations.

In response to natural disaster, political unrest or pandemics, the State Department does whatever necessary to safely evacuate USA citizens and residents while mitigating any risks to the rest of the population of the country.

At least that's what is supposed to happen.

Despite the growing threat of the rapidly-spreading coronavirus, President Donald Trump has taken repeated steps to dismiss the need for widespread drastic action to contain an outbreak in the United States that experts have deemed inevitable.

But how could a President possibly benefit from being cavalier about a pandemic?
