"A howler monkey weighs little more than a pug but can roar as loud as a tiger. Researchers at Cambridge University have found a surprising trade-off across howler species: the louder a male’s roar, the smaller his reproductive organs. His testicles, to be specific."

"Less than a week after video of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and European leaders mocking him at a NATO summit went viral, Trump claimed, absurdly, that 'this country is so respected. And we were not respected four years ago. We were laughed at.'
And just hours after a federal judge blocked his plan to spend billions of military dollars on his border wall, Trump said 'we’re building it and it’s fine and we have the military money coming in from the military. Believe me ... we started winning in court.' ”
However, one jealous little juvenile tweeter couldn't let this accolade go by without showing his envy and childish response.
Trump, instead of acting like a normal adult and congratulating Greta, lashed out at her and made a pathetic ass of himself, as is his usual behavior.
What a vindictive, infantile creep America has for a POTUS!

"...incumbent presidents almost always benefit from a strong economy, and right now job growth is robust and average hourly earnings are up — but Trump’s poll numbers are not:
“Instead of enjoying anything close to overwhelming popularity because of the economy, Mr. Trump’s national approval rating has remained low, dropping about two percentage points to 41 percent since the Ukraine story broke.’’
“Stock Markets Up Record Numbers,” Trump tweeted on Friday, adding, “It’s the economy, stupid.”
Yes, it’s the economy, stupid — when you have a president who is not violating his oath to preserve and protect the Constitution. But if you read today’s poll numbers alongside the economy numbers, it turns out that more than a few Americans are saying, “It’s the Constitution, stupid — and unlike you, Mr. Trump, we value some things more than money.”
We care about having a president who does not lie 20 times a day. We care about having a president who does not demean his opponents and mock their physical appearance. We care about having a president who does not take the word of Russia’s president over that of his own intelligence services. We care about having a president who is not caught up in conspiracy theories, which he then makes everyone around him chase. We care about having a president who values our nonpartisan public servants. We care about having a president who wants to be the president of the whole country, not just his base.
And most of all, we care about having a president who takes seriously his oath to preserve and protect our Constitution. Without that, we will end up one day morally and financially bankrupt. How many Americans will still feel that way on Election Day remains to be seen and will also depend on the Democrats’ alternative. But for now, it’s good to know that it’s a significant number — that despite three years of Donald Trump’s presidency, the country still has a civic pulse."
Trump is at 41% approval. The economy is important, but honesty, decency, and the rule of law is, thankfully, more important to Americans.
