by I'm Struggling
in News
Every Division I game scheduled to be played in the Carolinas or Virginia has changed in some way. The Category 2 Hurricane Florence was approaching the Carolinas and Virginia early this week, leading government officials to order at least a million people to evacuate. States of emergency were declared in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, and Georgia. The college football season’s intersection with hurricane season often creates challenges for universities and governments. When thousands of people converge on stadiums as storms approach, the events take up a lot of law-enforcement and public-safety resources. They can also create additional traffic […]

Trump is reportedly upset about old video footage showing him throwing rolls of paper towels at first-responders in Puerto Rico

Evan Vucci/AP President Donald Trump has reportedly been fixated on unflattering news reports about his response to Hurricane Maria, which slammed Puerto Rico in September 2017. Trump has particularly been irritated by video footage of him throwing rolls of paper towels to a crowd of relief workers on the island, according to The Washington Post. The footage prompted accusations that Trump lacks empathy. “I’m not to blame for this,” Trump said about Maria at one point, according to one of his advisers. Trump continued to cast doubt on the final death toll from Hurricane Maria on Friday, and distorted an […]

The White House was going to issue a statement praising John McCain — until Trump reportedly nixed it

by I'm Struggling
Alex Wong/Getty Images President Donald Trump has faced criticism for his statement following the death of John McCain, which did not say anything kind about the late senator and war hero. Trump reportedly rejected a statement from his aides praising McCain, saying he wanted to post his own statement on Twitter instead. Trump and McCain had feuded for years, most notably in 2016 when Trump said McCain was “not a war hero” because he had been captured in Vietnam. McCain reportedly requested that former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush deliver eulogies at his funeral, while Trump was not invited. President […]

One of the rarest birds in the western hemisphere, the Bahama Nuthatch, has been rediscovered by research teams searching the island of Grand Bahama.

by I'm Struggling
in News
All the paper towels in the world can’t wipe up the mess Donald Trump and his enablers have made of the recovery of Puerto Rico following the devastation of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, nor can they clean-up the lies being told daily about how far along the island is in return to normalcy. We have all heard of “whitesplaining,” but Trump, his appointees, and defenders take it to a higher (or perhaps lower would be more apt) level.  There are also Trumpsplainers who are in power on the island, the cream cheese of the crop of elites. They are Republicans like […]
