President Trump Is Touring Around The World And Social Media Is Eating It All Up

After facing mounting criticism and talks of impeachment in the United States, President Donald Trump decided to visit a few places with less political turmoil. You know, places like Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the Vatican. And while he might be out of the country, President Trump cannot escape the unblinking eye of social media. Here’s a quick look at a few of the adventures our commander-in-chief has gotten himself into over the past few days.

In Israel, Melania Trump was seen slapping away the president’s outstretched hand. It became “The Swat Heard ‘Round The World.”

No word on whether or not this was a friendly love slap or full on shade. A body language expert has claimed that Melania’s hand slap was in reaction to Trump treating her like a child.

Twitter was quick to jump on Melania’s slap.


They couldn’t hold back the snark.


Or the savagery.


Trump also visited the Western Wall in Jerusalem, making him the first standing president to do so.

The wall, also known as the Wailing Wall, is one of the holiest sites in Jerusalem. Visitors to the Western Wall often leave prayers or wishes in the form of notes.

Trump’s love of walls was not lost on Twitter.


Trump left a note, and some speculated what was written on it.

User @BigAlDell speculated President Trump’s note was less like a prayer and more like a tweet, writing, “I won the electoral college suck it! – DT”

While in Jerusalem, Trump let diplomats know that he had just gotten back from the “Middle East.” Jerusalem is in the Middle East, btw.


While talking to President of Israel, Reuven Rivlin, Trump said the following: “We just got back from the Middle East. We just got back from Saudi Arabia. And we were treated incredibly well.”

Trump’s geographical flub didn’t go unnoticed. The individual sitting to Trump’s left couldn’t hide his disbelief.

Several members of the Twitterazzi caught the goof-up too.

In Saudi Arabia, President Trump attended the opening of the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology in Riyadh.

Nothing weird going on here. Just three world leaders touching a glowing orb in Saudi Arabia.

The Internet showed just how perfect these photos were for memes.

References to movie villains were everywhere.


The background made for the perfect evil-villain layer.


They speculated what magical powers the orb gave President Trump.


Trump plans on meeting with Pope Francis on Wednesday.


While the Pope says he “won’t make a judgment” on Trump until they meet, other Twitter users are less forgiving.


No matter what happens, most people believe the encounter will be somewhat awkward.


But we’ll just have to wait and see how it plays out.

Rihanna Hilariously Took A Jab At Trump While Taking Out The Trash On Inauguration Day— ‘I’m just here to help’

Rihanna Hilariously Took A Jab At Trump While Taking Out The Trash On Inauguration Day— ‘I’m just here to help’

Rihanna just proved that she’s capable of just about anything. Last week, the class act proved that she can class up even the trashiest of things. While on a walk to the curb with bags of trash the singer rocked diamonds and a pair of satin pink peep-toe heels and gloves in a pointed jab at former President Trump. 

She might be a star but Rihanna isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty when it comes to taking out the trash on behalf of President Joe Biden.

Last Wednesday, the singer and fashion designer celebrated Biden’s inauguration and Trump’s exit with a silly post on her Instagram page. Dressed in stilettos, the “Love On The Brain” singer carried two bags of garbage out to the curb with a caption that read “I’m just here to help #WeDidItJoe.”

The comment was a clear nod to Vice President Kamala Harris and President Biden’s historic win and their ultimate swearing-in last week.

Dressed in a vintage tee-shirt reading ‘End Racism By Any Means Necessary’ Rihanna threw some shade and the trash away. 

Continuing to throw shade in the caption, Rihanna added: ‘I’m just here to help.’ The singer has proven herself to be an ultimate fan of the Biden-Harris ticket. Last year when they won the election she tweeted about their win writing “The faces of history makers, boundary breakers, and WINNERS!!CONGRATULATIONS to you both, and mostly to the American people!! So much work to do, so much hurt to undo! Let’s GO! I’m so proud of you America!”

Fortunately, it looks like Rihanna is showing no signs of slowing down her celebrations this year.

On Sunday, the Savage x Fenty owner shared a video of herself dancing in a hotel room while sporting some of her own line’s lingerie.

After doing some twerks and showing off a Savage x Fenty dotted mesh skirt, and a set of matching gloves, RiRi gave fans a fun Valentine’s Day champagne toast.

“Cupid could NEVA!” she captioned her post. “#ValentinesDayCountdown.”

Trump Labels Cuba A State Sponsor Of Terrorism As His Own Supporters Face Similar Allegations

Trump Labels Cuba A State Sponsor Of Terrorism As His Own Supporters Face Similar Allegations

In a move that is sure to complicate things for the incoming Biden administration, Trump has moved to put Cuba back on the list of nations that allegedly sponsor terrorism.

Obama had taken Cuba off of that list in 2015 and with four years to Cuba back on the list, many agree that Trump has simply put Cuba back on the list to make life difficult for President Biden.

The Trump administration has put Cuba back on the list of countries that “sponsor terrorism.”

With just days left in office, Trump has moved to label Cuba as a “state sponsor of terrorism” in a last-minute move that is sure to complicate things for the incoming Biden administration.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo justified the controversial move which reverses Barack Obama’s 2015 decision to remove Cuba from the list after more than three decades – by accusing Havana of “repeatedly providing support for acts of international terrorism in granting safe harbour to terrorists”.

Pompeo also alleged Cuba was engaging “in a range of malign behavior across the region”, highlighting its support for Venezuela’s authoritarian leader Nicolás Maduro who Trump has unsuccessfully tried to overthrow.

The controversial step places Cuba alongside Iran, North Korea and Syria as state sponsors of terror.

However, most officials agree that Trump’s claims about Cuba are bogus.

Many international observers – including U.S. allies – aren’t impressed by the administration’s claims that Cuba is sponsoring terrorism.

In an interview with The Guardian, Christopher Sabatini, a senior fellow for Latin America at Chatham House, said “These are trumped up charges. Terrorism as an international definition is committing acts of violence against unarmed civilians intended to frighten the population. Cuba doesn’t do that. Yes, it represses its own people – but so does Saudi Arabia.”

Groups that favor greater U.S. engagement with Cuba criticized the announcement.

“There is no compelling, factual basis to merit the designation,” according to Ric Herrero, executive director of the Cuba Study Group, a Washington DC-based organization that supports engagement with the island. “Instead it appears to be another shameless, last-ditch effort to hamstring the foreign policy of the incoming Biden administration and set the stage for the next election in Florida, all at the expense of the Cuban people and relations between our countries.”

Many observers agree that Trump’s move is simply a gift to party hardliners in Florida, and likely a deliberate attempt to make life difficult for the incoming Biden administration who may wish to end deténte with Cuba.

Of course, Cuban officials reacted angrily to the announcement.

After the announcement, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez tweeted: “We condemn the US announced hypocritical and cynical designation of #Cuba as a State sponsoring terrorism. The US political opportunism is recognized by those who are honestly concerned about the scourge of terrorism and its victims.”

Reversing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s action would require the Biden administration to certify to Congress that there has been a fundamental change in leadership in Cuba and that the government is not supporting acts of international terrorism, has not for the previous six months and will not do so in the future.
