Attention all unemployed minors: Jobs are coming!
But the president’s message was slightly skewed in a video promotion for the rally that Trump himself posted on Facebook later in the day.
The video’s creator seems to have fallen victim to a classic case of homophone confusion, writing that the White House is “putting our minors back to work” — referring to underage citizens as opposed to the coal miners Trump has championed throughout his campaign and presidency. »

Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed rival CNN on Thursday night, saying the network practices “advocacy” as opposed to journalism these days because they attack President Trump so often. Carlson and The Hill media columnist Joe Concha were discussing the fact that CNN and MSNBC didn’t air Trump’s recent rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in its entirety. “MSNBC I get actually, they know who their audience is.

Ray Pillar of Character Award -- which recognizes "good character as a role model" -- at the Ron Pearson Center in West Des Moines, Iowa, on Saturday, and in addition to gushing over his wife, he also opened up about a time when he had his "name splashed across every gossip magazine as an adulterer, like, five years ago."

The dinner party is fertile ground for movies about a handful of characters whose unspoken biases bubble to the surface. From “The Exterminating Angel” to “The Celebration,” this longstanding subgenre is a precise means of examining society at large. In the hands of regular collaborators Miguel Arteta and Mike White, it’s a window into the oppressive forces of wealth and privilege, uniquely suited for our troubled times.
So it goes “Beatriz at Dinner,” an engaging if at times heavy-handed drama about characters from vastly different sociopolitical backgrounds facing their differences. As directed by Arteta from White’s screenplay, its appeal largely stems from a nuanced turn by Salma Hayek as a Mexican immigrant confronting an avaricious hotel mogul (John Lithgow), whose corporate mindset and scandal-ridden career make him an unsubtle avatar for Donald Trump.
