So funny! Love you Americans!
People complain about Donald Trump when he gets on twitter but I actually enjoy the tweets and watching people responds to him. I just love my fellow American’s that have no patience for BS.
This was reported on CNN. It’s been flying around Facebook like the wicked witch of the west. I’m still not watching CNN as I have PTED (Post traumatic election disorder).

What a cry baby!
Vice President Elect Mike Pence got boo’d by audience at Hamilton. The cast plead with Pence to represent all of us. Trump calls it harassment. Not even in office Trump has no patience for free speech. If Mike Pence can’t deal with people talking to him without running to daddy then he should step down now.
Our advice is to take thing in stride like Joe Biden!

Bashar seeing Hanan and his boys for the first time in a year. Happy, relieved, overjoyed, overwhelmed and many more emotions.
Oh my, I have no idea where to begin this post. Maybe last week. When I met Bashar for the first time. Bashar is a computer engineer from Syria. His wife a medical student.

“Hold the tomatoes” until they’re responsibly sourced – that’s the call behind a boycott of Wendy’s fast-food eateries planned for this weekend. Wendy’s is the only major fast-food chain that has not joined the Fair Food Program, a farmworker-led initiative credited with helping to make strides toward corporate social responsibility in South Florida’s tomato fields. Alayne Unterberger with Tampa Bay Fair Food, a group helping to organize the protest, says the Fair Food Program simply asks corporations to respect human rights.
A spokesperson for Wendy’s says the company purchases tomatoes from Mexico and other places, and insists it holds suppliers to a code of conduct. McDonald’s, Chipotle and Walmart are among the corporations that have joined the Fair Food Program since its launch four years ago. This weekend’s protests are planned at Wendy’s locations in Tampa and St. Pete on Saturday…
