    On Monday, the President retweeted a blatantly doctored, fake image of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer in Middle Eastern garb together in front of an Iranian flag. In the image, Pelosi is wearing a hijab and Schumer has a turban on his head with "Democrats 2020" written on the bottom of the image. The tweet accompanying the photo reads "the corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the Ayatollah's rescue."

    Trump retweeted the image from an anonymous account with the alias "D0wn_Under," which has previously tweeted out other conspiracy theories around Pelosi and Iran.

    Trump didn't stop with just one deeply offensive, anti-Muslim tweet. Other tweets he sent included one showing a graphic picture of what appeared to be a man's mutilated body, along with the claim that Pelosi "supports this mullahs' crime." The tweet was later removed and replaced, according to the Washington Post, with a note saying it "violated the Twitter Rules."

    All of this is a new low, even for the impeached president who is infamous for making low blows, and it's a new low for the people who work for him. Trump's tweeting the racist pictures show that this president apparently believes portraying someone as Muslim and as sympathetic to a Muslim country is a good way to insult them. Making fun of Islamic clothing, reducing the world's roughly 1.6 billion Muslim population to turbans and veils is offensive and incorrect, especially considering not all Muslims choose to cover or wear religious headgear.

    Instead of trying to apologize for her boss's tweets, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham went on Fox News and defended Trump's decision to amplify the tweet, stating he did what he did to make a point.

    "I think the president is making clear that the Democrats have been parroting Iranian talking points and almost taking the side of terrorists and those who were out to kill the Americans," she said. "I think the president was making the point that the Democrats seem to hate him so much that they're willing to be on the side of countries and leadership of countries who want to kill Americans."

    Even if we were to seriously consider Grisham's point on Trump just lashing out at fellow US government officials for opposing his foreign policy, is it ever OK to insult your opponents using Islamophobic slurs?

    No matter what point Grisham claims Trump is making, his tweets make it clear to the world that the president of the United States thinks that what millions of Americans believe in and how they dress are slurs. This is absolutely unacceptable, and Congress needs to demand that Trump apologize to Muslims at home and abroad.

    Furthermore, during such a sensitive period of renewed and heightened tensions with Iran, Trump is showing that he has no issue proffering anti-Muslim sentiments that put the lives of American Muslims and Iranian-Americans at risk. Recent studies have found Islamophobic sentiment is on the rise in the US. One study has even found that Trump's tweets about Islam are correlated with anti-Muslim hate crimes.

    He is absolutely rattled and scared of this 17 year old girl.

    President Donald Trump says 17-year-old environmental activist Greta Thunberg should not focus on the United States, but other continents that are spewing fumes into the atmosphere.

    Trump and Thunberg have clashed in the past and did so again this week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

    Trump said Wednesday that he would have loved to have seen the Swedish activist’s speech at the gathering, but also said - without mentioning her name - that some people are ‘‘unrealistic’’ about climate change and seek changes that would interrupt people trying to live their lives.

    He noted that other countries have dumped tons of garbage into the Pacific Ocean and is now floating toward the United States. Trump says Thunberg should focus on that.

    Are they fighting again? That young lady hates Trump, absolutely hates him. Gotta love her passion.

    I don't understand why everyone is fighting over climate change, the earth has been warming and cooling, cooling and warming for millions of years there's nothing that can be done about it. Even if we had no cars no planes no factories no garbage no emissions the earth would still warm then cool then warm then cool. All this fighting about it is a huge waste of time.

    I think it's him that hates her. He has hounded her whereever she goes and attacked her.

    I am just glad I don't have kids that will inherit this earth after all the changes the current administration are making with their rollback and giveaways to corporate polluters.

    Whether you want to believe what science has proven about climate change or not, why in the world would you want your kid to breathe in the pollution in the air, drink the pollution in the water, and live in the pollution the current administration is doing everything in its power to encourage?

    I'll be honest with you, I really don't give a fuck anymore. I don't have kids. I will be gone by the time it really becomes an issue. I used to fight it all, but then I realized why bother fighting, just give up and stop stressing myself out...and be selfish about it...it's not my kids that will be living with it.
