Trump Changes Plans on MLK Day Visit To African American History Museum

President-elect Donald Trump is no longer expected to visit the Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture in observance of Martin Luther King Day, senior level transition sources tell ABC News.

Senior sources initially said Trump would visit the museum, but ABC has learned that the visit was removed from his calendar due to scheduling issues and was not fully planned out.

Trump is expected to visit the museum sometime after he assumes office, the sources say. He will commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day in Washington, D.C., in another way, though details were not immediately available today.

News of the planned visit on Martin Luther King Day came Saturday as Trump drew ire from critics over a Twitter attack against Congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis.

Esquire EXCLUSIVE: The Trump administration may evict the press from the Wh

According to three senior officials on the transition team, a plan to evict the press corps from the White House is under serious consideration by the incoming Trump Administration. If the plan goes through, one of the officials said, the media will be removed from the cozy confines of the White House press room, where it has worked for several decades. Members of the press will be relocated to the White House Conference Center—near Lafayette Square—or to a space in the Old Executive Office Building, next door to the White House.

"There has been no decision," Sean Spicer, Trump's press secretary, said about the plan today. But Spicer acknowledged that "there has been some discussion about how to do it."

Spicer cast the possible relocation of the press corps as a matter, in part, of logistics. "There's been so much interest in covering a President Donald Trump," he said. "A question is: Is a room that has forty-nine seats adequate? When we had that press conference the other day, we had thousands of requests, and we capped it at four hundred. Is there an opportunity to potentially allow more members of the media to be part of this? That's something we're discussing."

Another senior official, however, suggested a more pointed motivation for the move. According to the official, the potential relocation reflected a view within the transition team that coverage of Trump has been so hostile as to indicate that the press has abandoned its role as neutral observer.

"They are the opposition party," a senior official says. "I want 'em out of the building. We are taking back the press room."

Martin Shkreli Pelted With Poop At UC Davis As Yiannopoulos Event Gets Canceled Amid Protest

Friday night's planned appearance by Milo Yiannopoulos at UC Davis — with, just for the hell of it, despicable sidekick Martin Shkreli in tow — was canceled amid a loud and predictable protest, and campus Republicans say it was out of fear for the safety of Yiannopoulos fans who planned to attend. But for some reason Shkreli, who is apparently a glutton for anger directed towards himself, went out to work the crowd amid the protest, and in addition to getting shoved around a little, he got pelted in the face with feces.

The video from Twitter posted above purports to show the moment Shkreli was hit with shit, just as a protester is calling him "a piece of shit."

Conservative supporters of Yiannopoulos, and in particular one man wearing a red "Make America Great Again" cap, were heckled and jostled by protesters, and Frances Wang of Sacramento's ABC 10 reports that many of the protesters were not UC Davis students, but most of them were protesting peacefully. The university confirmed that one arrest was made during the protest.

An editorial in the school newspaper Friday morning read, "Make no mistake: Yiannopoulos is a hateful spectacle, not a conservative political theorist ... we support any members of the community who decide to exercise their freedom of assembly and peacefully protest the event."

HOW DID A RUSSIAN SPY GET ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES?

HOW DID A RUSSIAN SPY GET ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES?

January 14, 2017
Recently on Twitter we received a query from a lovely woman in Canada, let’s call her Betsy to help protect her identity. She asked, understandably, “How in the world did a Russian Spy (Donald Trump) get elected President of the United States?”

I promised Betsy an answer and here it is:

Donald Trump was aided and abetted by senior people in the Republican party. These people pushed legitimate, non-Spy candidates out of the way during the Republican primary in order to push Donald Trump forward. In other words, they colluded with a Russian spy against their own party: self before party.
Donald Trump was aided and abetted by other traitors who hold United States passports and who have served, or are currently serving, in senior government positions on the federal and state level: greed before loyalty.
Donald Trump was aided and abetted by Putin and his henchmen in Russia. They gave him information and money for his campaign. Plus, Russia has been involved in cyber-warfare against every day Americans, including trolling them through social media through the use of paid propaganda trolls.


All of this has been substantiated by press reports and government intelligence.

................

So, Betsy, there you have it. Donald Trump is a traitor, and so are the United States citizens who have worked so hard to put a Russian Spy in the White House.

Putin is just doing what Putin does. He is trying to do it in other countries, including Canada. He is particularly interested in installing other puppet despots (Trump being one) at the head of European countries in an attempt to weaken NATO. He wants to weaken NATO so he can push ahead with military plans to invade European countries.
