Proof Trump Doesn’t Care About Health Care

Donald Trump doesn’t care about health care. He wants to focus on things like strting wars. Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Join TYT: https://goo.gl/v8E64M

“President Trump praised health care block grants on Saturday, saying they allow the states to focus on health care, but said he would rather focus his energy on tensions with North Korea than “fixing somebody’s back or their knee.”

“You know in theory, I want to focus on North Korea, I want to focus on Iran, I want to focus on other things. I don’t want to focus on fixing somebody’s back or their knee or something. Let the states do that,” the president told Mike Huckabee on the Trinity Broadcasting Network’s “Huckabee.”

“The block grant concept is a very good concept, and if you have good management, good governors, good politicians in the state, it’ll be phenomenal,” he continued.
“I could almost say we are just about there in terms of the vote, so I expect to be getting health care approved,” he said.

Trump’s comments come after Senate Republicans failed twice this year to fulfill a seven-year campaign promise of repealing and replacing ObamaCare.”

VICTIM Of Charlottesville Beating Wanted For Arrest

DeAndre Harris is facing criminal charges. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Join TYT: https://goo.gl/v8E64M

“A video shows a black man surrounded by white men donning racist symbols. The men hit him with weapons, and he falls to the ground. He is kicked. He stands up and attempts to flee, collapsing. But he finally gets away.

Yet while many of his attackers remain uncharged, he now has an arrest warrant in his name as a result of the clash, according to the Washington Post.

The video, which went viral shortly after the protests in which white nationalists, members of the Ku Klux Klan, and neo-Nazis descended on Charlottesville, Virginia, in August, shows members of those protest groups attacking DeAndre Harris, a black 20-year-old. According to his attorney, Harris ended up with a concussion, a head laceration that required staples, a fractured wrist, a knee injury, and other abrasions and contusions across his body as a result of the clash.”*

How Racist Is The New Dove Ad?

You be the judge… Cenk Uygur, Brett Erlich, and Hannah Cranston, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Join TYT: https://goo.gl/v8E64M

“Over the weekend, Dove got itself into a whole lot of hot water, posting a racist ad to its Facebook page, before removing the post and offering a tepid apology.

The GIF, which social media users captured in still images and was captioned”Ready for a Dove Shower?,” showing a black woman removing a brown shirt and… becoming a white woman in a white shirt:

The viral post shows stills of two of three women that appear in the ad.

As backlash grew, Dove removed the ad and posted an apology, saying it had “missed the mark” (which seems like a bit of an understatement)”*

How Trump’s Immigration Policy Is Bad For The Economy

Trump’s immigration policy is hurting small businesses. Ana Kasparian, Grace Baldridge, and Amberia Allen, the hosts of The Young Turks, give you an example. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Join TYT: https://goo.gl/v8E64M

“DENVER — The first day on the job for the 39 new hires at Jesus “Chuy” Medrano’s landscaping firm started as soon as they stumbled off the bus in the early morning, groggy and stiff from the 13-hour trip from the Mexico border.

“Ready to work?” Medrano joked in Spanish — before the men had a chance to use the bathroom or eat breakfast. The 63-year-old grandfather, wearing a cowboy hat, stuffed his hands into the pockets of his jeans and grinned.

Medrano, founder and owner of CoCal Landscape, had spent more than $32,000 recruiting and securing visas for the Mexican migrants after scrambling to find any American willing to do backbreaking work under the Colorado sun.”

Tourist terrified by new glass walkway that cracks under weight

A video of a tourist guide terrified by the sight of a bridge’s glass bottom cracking has gone viral recently in East Taihang Mountains, in Handan city, north China’s Hebei Province. The glass skywalk hangs 1,180 meters above a valley and stretches 266 meters in length. Just for fun, shattering glass is added as a special effect to give the already-terrifying experience extra zing. The management assured that workers check the glass panels daily to ensure the safety of visitors.
