Trump Gave Pope Francis A Copy Of MLK Jr. Writings And The Irony Was Almost Too Much

President Donald Trump met with Pope Francis for the first time on Wednesday, and, as customary for visits between dignitaries, the two men exchanged gifts. In a not-so-subtle nod to Trump’s shaky track record on environmental issues, Francis gave the U.S. president a copy of his 2015 encyclical on the environment, “Laudato Si.” As his offering, Trump saw fit to present the pontiff with a first-edition set of writings by Martin Luther King Jr. In some ways, the gesture was fitting. Francis spoke about King’s civil rights legacy during his address to Congress in 2015, and he frequently preaches on topics like nonviolence and the perils of capitalism, which were also close to King’s heart. But Trump’s gift was filled with irony. The White House claimed the gift “honors Dr. King’s hope, vision, and inspiration for generations to come.” Whether Trump, himself, honors King’s message is a question many have pondered. For one, Trump has had a troubling way of talking about black people over the years. “I have a great relationship with the blacks,” he said in April 2011. “I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks.” In his years as a casino mogul, Trump allegedly disparaged his black employees as “lazy” in vividly bigoted terms, according to a 1991 book by John O’Donnell, a former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino. “I think the guy is lazy,” Trump said of a black employee, according to O’Donnell. “And it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” Trump was also a leading proponent of “birtherism,” the racist conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States and was thus an illegitimate president. Trump claimed in 2011 to have sent people to Hawaii to investigate whether Obama was really born there. He insisted at the time that the researchers “cannot believe what they are finding.” Two months before the election, Trump finally acknowledged that Obama was indeed born in the United States. After his presidential win, Trump also consistently sidestepped opportunities to renounce white nationalist and former KKK leader David Duke, who told his radio audience that voting for any candidate other than Trump would be “treason to your heritage.” When asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper if he would condemn Duke and say he didn’t want a vote from him or any other white supremacists, Trump claimed that he didn’t know anything about white supremacists or about Duke. When Tapper pressed him twice more, Trump said he couldn’t condemn a group he hadn’t yet researched. The president has also surrounded himself with a number of advisors and cabinet picks who have a history of prejudice. He replaced former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the first African-American woman to hold the position, with Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), a conservative, white, Republican senator from Alabama with a history of racially insensitive comments. To kick off Black History Month in February, Trump hosted a “conversation” at the White House and managed to make part of the discussion mostly about himself. In his remarks, the president also seemed a little shaky on his history when he referred to Frederick Douglass ― a man who escaped slavery to become an acclaimed author, abolitionist and civil rights activist ― as “an example of somebody who has done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice.” Whether Trump fully grasps the struggles and achievements of black Americans like King enough to bestow his writings on the pope is a question many Twitter users were pondering on Wednesday: Now, we all know that Trump ain't read or internalized a single thought of MLK. https://t.co/KXRZXWWB3n— deray mckesson (@deray) May 24, 2017 Trump giving MLK's books to the Pope when his policies will killl the folks MLK tried to help & Trump's DHS choice would've arrested him. pic.twitter.com/9ZWCmXnHKs— April (@ReignOfApril) May 24, 2017 Trump gives MLK writings to Pope.

Terrible @RogueFirstLadyHand Twitter Account Inevitable Now

Like what you read below? Sign up for HUFFPOST HILL and get a cheeky dose of political news every evening! President Trump’s approval rating continues to decline, though voters haven’t given the orb enough time to fully integrate into the president’s neural pathways and firmly settle into its new host body — believe us, you’ll absolutely love the guy then. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke met with a notorious internet troll — and in addition to meeting the president, he also met with Chuck Johnson (hey oooh!). And Fox News retracted its Seth Rich story, upgrading its journalistic reputation from “existential threat to civil society” to a mere “cancer on the First Amendment.” Well done, gang. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017: MORE DAMNING TESTIMONY AGAINST TRUMP CAMPAIGN - Maybe Trump will clarify this matter by blurting something out during a photo op with the Pope. That is the new fourth estate. The president blurting out things. Greg Miller: “The CIA alerted the FBI to a troubling pattern of contacts between Russian officials and associates of the Trump campaign last year, former agency director John Brennan testified on Tuesday, shedding new light on the origin of a criminal probe that now reaches into the White House. In testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, Brennan said he became increasingly concerned that Trump associates were being manipulated by Russian intelligence services as part of a broader covert influence campaign that sought to disrupt the election and deliver the presidency to Trump. ‘I was worried by a number of the contacts that the Russians had with U.S. persons,’ Brennan said, adding that he did not see proof of collusion before he left office on January 20, but ‘felt as though the FBI investigation was certainly well-founded and needed to look into those issues.’” [WaPo] TRUMP BUDGET AS TERRIBLE AS PROMISED - Remember: the president’s budget is simply a wish list of how he’d like to kill your grandmother. That’s all. Don’t get too worked up.  Arthur Delaney: “President Donald Trump wants Congress to cut food stamps and other anti-poverty programs in order to pay for more military spending and a border wall, according to a budget proposal the White House will formally unveil on Tuesday. Trump’s budget for fiscal 2018, a summary of which the administration released late Monday, would plow the savings from welfare cuts into higher military spending and deficit reduction…. The budget cuts Social Security Disability Insurance by about 4 percent. Mulvaney argued that doing so doesn’t violate Trump’s Social Security campaign pledge because most people only think of retirement insurance when they think of Social Security. The proposal doesn’t touch retirement insurance, but Social Security advocates say Trump nevertheless broke his promise.” [HuffPost] Congress reacted Trump’s budget like it was printed on a filthy, stinky diaper. “President Donald Trump’s first budget didn’t exactly get rave reviews, even from Republicans, as word of its cuts spread on Capitol Hill Tuesday.” [HuffPost’s Michael McAuliff and Laura Barrón-López] @W7VOA: “Donald Trump united the entire Muslim world in a way that it really hasn’t been in many years,” said sr. admin. official on Air Force One. WON’T SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE RICH PEOPLE! The director of the White House Office of Management and Budget published Ayn Rand fanfic in the form of an op-ed today. Mick Mulvaney: “For years, we’ve focused on how we can help Americans receive taxpayer-funded assistance. Under President Trump’s leadership, we’re now looking at how we can respect both those who require assistance and the taxpayers who fund that support. For the first time in a long time, we’re putting taxpayers first. Taking money from someone without an intention to pay it back is not debt. It is theft. This budget makes it clear that we will reverse this larceny.” [Miami Herald] FOX PULLS SETH RICH STORY - Despite the fact that the network retracted the story, Sean Hannity remains tragically, er... tracted. Travis Waldron: “A week after publishing a thinly sourced, conspiracy-peddling article that linked slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich to Wikileaks, Fox News has issued a retraction and removed the story from its website. The network’s statement, however, did not mention Fox’s television programming, where prominent commentator Sean Hannity has repeatedly pushed the conspiracy theory since the story published. Hannity was still peddling the theory on Twitter just before the retraction was published, urging his followers to read a post from hacker Kim Dotcom that claimed Rich had definitive links to WikiLeaks. Earlier this week, CNN reported that Hannity had invited Kim Dotcom on his show…. Hannity isn’t the only Fox television commentator to spread the Rich conspiracy theory since the story published online. The ‘Fox and Friends’ morning show has pushed the story as well, and Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich also raised it during an appearance on the network over the weekend.” [HuffPost] FIIIIIIIINE, PRESIDENT AGREES TO MEET POPE - Erik Wasson, Steven T. Dennis and John McCormick: “No two world leaders would seem to have less in common. They’ll meet face to face at the Vatican for the first time on Wednesday, at Trump’s request…. Trump, a Presbyterian, was in no hurry to meet the leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics, according to a senior Vatican official who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the issue. The White House reached out to the Vatican only at the end of April, the official said, noting that leaders usually schedule meetings with the pope two months or more in advance…. The two leaders are expected to discuss issues including global poverty, immigration and climate change on which there will be ‘legitimate differences,’ the Vatican official said.” [Bloomberg] Haircut: James Comey (h/t Christopher J.

Send tips/stories/photos/events/fundraisers/job movement/juicy miscellanea to [email protected] Follow us on Twitter - @HuffPostHill FEC MEMBER CALLS FOR GREATER TRUMP INVESTIGATION - Kenneth P. Vogel: “A member of the Federal Election Commission is calling on the agency to investigate whether Russian agents paid for Facebook ads to spread damaging stories about Hillary Clinton ahead of last fall’s presidential election. ‘I think there is potential there for finding a violation, but I don’t want to suggest that I have prejudged anything that could potentially come before me,’ said FEC Commissioner Ellen Weintraub, a Democratic appointee to the commission. Her assertion comes as agency staff is already moving to investigate a related complaint filed in December by a pair of watchdog groups against President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government, according to two sources familiar with the agency’s handling of the complaint. They said that, if the investigation proceeds apace, agency staff could be expected to incorporate the recent revelations about Facebook ads into their fact-finding.” [Politico] TRUMP UNPOPULAR - Ariel Edwards-Levy and Grace Sparks: “President Donald Trump’s average approval rating just reached a new low, according to HuffPost Pollster’s aggregation of publicly available surveys. Trump’s ratings took a noticeable dip in March after Republicans failed to pass a bill repealing the Affordable Care Act. They stabilized in the low 40s for much of April. In the past month, however, his ratings have taken a more significant downturn. His average approval rating stands at just below 40 percent as of Tuesday afternoon, with his disapproval rating at nearly 56 percent…. Individual pollsters who’ve tracked Trump’s ratings this month have measured strikingly similar downward shifts. Of the six pollsters who’ve released multiple surveys taken in May, five found Trump’s net approval rating ― the difference between his ‘approve’ and ‘disapprove’ numbers ― falling by between 7 and 9 points, as of Monday evening. The sixth, the Ipsos/Reuters tracking poll, shows him down by 11.” [HuffPost] Impeachment is so yesterday. The 25th Amendment so fresh. ZINKE MET WITH CONSPIRACY TROLL - If only that were the name of some kind of endangered mole-rat the department were trying to protect. Alas. Chris D’Angelo: “Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke held a video call in April with an infamous right-wing internet troll and a virtual reality entrepreneur to discuss the Trump administration’s plans to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Zinke’s half-hour call with Charles ‘Chuck’ Johnson, the CEO and founder of Gotnews.com, and Palmer Luckey, the founder of Oculus VR, occurred just after lunch on April 12, according to a recently published log of Zinke’s scheduled meetings last month. The call’s listed topic of discussion: ‘Border Wall building plans.’ … A conservative journalist with serious credibility issues, Johnson is perhaps best known for being banned from Twitter in 2015 after asking for donations to help him ‘take out’ civil rights activist DeRay McKesson.” [HuffPost] Oh: The wife of President Trump’s top anti-terror adviser, Sebastian Gorka, has been hired as a temporary adviser to the Department of Homeland Security’s chief of staff, according to documents obtained by a watchdog group. Katherine Gorka will serve as a temporary adviser for 120 days, with the possibility of an extension, according to the American Oversight group…. Gorka’s husband has taken heat...over Gorka’s alleged ties to Hungarian far-right organizations with ties to the Nazis.” [The Hill’s John Bowden] CONGRATULATIONS TO MODERATE REPUBLICANISM - What’s it like being dead? Lindsey McPherson: “New Jersey Rep. Tom MacArthur has stepped down as co-chair of the moderate Republican Tuesday Group. ‘I’ve been thinking about it since the day we voted on health care,’ MacArthur told reporters Tuesday, describing divisions in the group. ‘There are people that have bristled with me engaging with the Freedom Caucus,’ he said. ‘I’m going to do that again. That’s who I am. I’m going to work with everyone.’ Still, MacArthur said he did not feel pressure to resign as the backlash against him over the health care negotiations ‘had settled down somewhat.’ Rather, he said he is stepping down because he thinks it’s the right thing to do.” [Roll Call] ICYMI: INTERIOR CENSORING CLIMATE FINDINGS - Really outstanding stuff over at Interior these days. Dino Grandoni: “On Thursday, a group of scientists, including three working for the U.S. Geological Survey, published a paper that highlighted the link between sea-level rise and global climate change, arguing that previously studies may have underestimated the risk flooding poses to coastal communities. However, three of the study’s authors say the Department of Interior, under which USGS is housed, deleted a line from the news release on the study that discussed the role climate change played in raising Earth’s oceans.” [WaPo] SHERIFF CLARKE MAY NOT GET ADMINISTRATION JOB AMID PLAGIARISM REPORT -  Well, Melania Trump did plagiarize that Michelle Obama speech and she was still named first lady, so...how about that for a take? Nathan McDermott and Andrew Kaczynski: “Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke said this week that a CNN KFile report on plagiarism in his master’s thesis could impact the Trump administration’s decision to hire him for a role at the Department of Homeland Security. A CNN KFile review of Clarke’s 2013 master’s thesis found 47 examples in which Clarke used passages from sources and credited them with a footnote, without using quotation marks indicating that he took the language verbatim. In several instances, Clarke copied entire sentences while changing or replacing only one or two words. Clarke has said that he had accepted an appointment as an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security, but a DHS spokesperson said last week that no announcement of his appointment had been made.” [CNN] BECAUSE YOU’VE READ THIS FAR - Here’s a very bad dog. AL FRANKEN REALLY, REALLY HATES TED CRUZ - Reminder that this guy also described the Texas senator as “the love child of Joe McCarthy and Dracula.” Eliot Nelson: “Franken…has been cracking wise about about one of his least favorite colleagues, Ted Cruz (R-Texas), while promoting his sarcastically titled new book, Al Franken: Giant of the Senate. ‘You have to understand that I like Ted Cruz probably more than my colleagues like Ted Cruz,’ Franken told USA Today’s Susan Page, repeating a line from his book, ‘and I hate Ted Cruz.’ ‘He’s a special guy,’ the senator added.” [HuffPost] COMFORT FOOD - The people from those “regular people” Chevy ads speak out: “When that wall opened, it was the loudest, most awkward and slow-moving thing I’ve ever experienced in my life.”   - Vimeo channel features videos of national putt-putt championships dating back decades. - The Killers’ “Mr. Brightside” hasn’t left the U.K. charts since 2004.

Trump's Interior Secretary Took Time To Discuss The Border Wall With A Far-Right Troll

WASHINGTON — Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke held a video call in April with an infamous right-wing internet troll and a virtual reality entrepreneur to discuss the Trump administration’s plans to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.  Zinke’s half-hour call with Charles “Chuck” Johnson, the CEO and founder of Gotnews.com, and Palmer Luckey, the founder of Oculus VR, occurred just after lunch on April 12, according to a recently published log of Zinke’s scheduled meetings last month.  The call’s listed topic of discussion: “Border Wall building plans.”  What knowledge or expertise Johnson and Luckey could bring to such a conversation, and why the man tasked with managing some 500 million acres of federal land would agree to the meeting, is anyone’s guess.  A conservative journalist with serious credibility issues, Johnson is perhaps best known for being banned from Twitter in 2015 after asking for donations to help him “take out” civil rights activist DeRay McKesson. He also unsuccessfully sued Gawker for defamation, seeking $66 million over articles addressing rumors that Johnson defecated on the floor at some point during college. In January, Forbes reported that Johnson was “working behind the scenes with members of the [Trump] transition team’s executive committee” to “recommend, vet and give something of a seal of approval to potential nominees from the so-called ‘alt-right’” to work in the administration. Luckey, the multimillionaire founder of Oculus VR, has come under fire for funding a pro-Donald Trump internet group that pumped out anti-Hillary Clinton memes during the 2016 presidential race, and for donating $100,000 to Trump’s official inauguration committee.  The Interior Department did not respond to HuffPost’s multiple requests for comment. However, a spokeswoman for the agency told Gizmodo that the April 12 call was arranged by Zinke’s friend Scott McEwen, a co-author of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s autobiography American Sniper. “The Secretary had a brief meeting where he listened to [Johnson and Luckey’s] ideas about using technology on the border and referred the gentlemen to the Department of Homeland Security,” the spokeswoman told Gizmodo.  “Regarding setting up the meeting, a friend of the Secretary’s suggested he talk with them about their technology,” she added. “As a result, they had a very brief meeting with the Secretary. There was no action after.” Johnson did not respond to HuffPost’s request for comment. Contacted by Gizmodo via Twitter, Luckey reportedly referred the publication to a response he’d previously given them, which read, “I could give you an answer, or I could tell you to fuck yourself.” Paul Blumenthal contributed to this report.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Arkansas Judge Again Blocks State From Using Drug For Lethal Injections

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); A judge in Arkansas has blocked the state from using its supply of a drug used in lethal injections, due to the drug supplier objecting that the state misleadingly obtained its product. Pulaski County Circuit Judge Alice Gray on Wednesday granted a temporary restraining order that drug supplier McKesson Corp. filed Tuesday. The temporary restraining order is the second one the company has filed related to Arkansas’ use of pancuronium bromide for its death penalty protocol. The drug, which paralyzes the prisoner, is the second step in the state’s three-drug cocktail for the procedure.  Wednesday’s court order effectively blocks the state from carrying out any executions for as long as it’s in place. The state is trying to execute eight prisoners in 11 days before its supply of midazolam, the first lethal injection drug, expires by month’s end.  A spokesman for Attorney General Leslie Rutledge (R) said in a statement her office will appeal Gray’s order to the Arkansas Supreme Court. The state has already been thwarted in its attempt to carry out what have been criticized as “conveyor belt”-like executions between April 17 and April 27. The state has not held an execution in 12 years. Two prisoners received individual stays before the execution timeline started; a third was granted a stay within 24 hours of his death warrant expiring. A fourth prisoner, who is scheduled for execution Thursday night, was granted a stay on Wednesday just minutes before Gray’s order was handed down.  McKesson Corp. last week filed a nearly identical temporary restraining order, which was upheld by a different Pulaski County Circuit judge. The drug supplier filed to dismiss its temporary restraining order just days later following an order by a federal appeals court judge to halt the executions. The company said the federal ruling made their order unnecessary. The federal order was later reversed, putting the executions back on track. Meanwhile, the judge who granted the company’s first temporary restraining order was removed from all capital punishment-related cases in Pulaski County after his participation in an anti-death penalty demonstration drew criticism. McKesson does not approve of its drugs for use in executions. On Wednesday, the company said in a statement that it wants to “prevent the use of our product for something other than a legitimate medical purpose. McKesson is committed to ensuring that its property is only used in a manner consistent with our supplier agreement.” In its filing, McKesson demanded the Arkansas Department of Corrections return the 10 vials of the drug it has. The company said it has already refunded the department and demands the drugs be impounded. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Company sues Arkansas, charging fraud over lethal injection drugs

(Reuters) - A major U.S. pharmaceutical firm sued Arkansas again over capital punishment on Tuesday, claiming prison officials fraudulently obtained a muscle relaxant to administer in several executions and demanding the drug in question be confiscated from the state.
