Tim Ryan slams Trump, NRA in wake of El Paso and Dayton shootings

Democratic presidential candidate Tim Ryan slammed the National Rifle Association on Sunday in the wake of two mass shootings last weekend that left 31 people dead and scores more wounded.

Ryan, a Democratic congressman from Ohio, criticized the arguments made by some Republican politicians and NRA members that the root causes of the frequent mass shootings in the United States are mental illness and violent video games.

“The NRA, their suggestion is we do nothing, we do nothing,” Ryan said during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.” “We know that mass shootings happen primarily in the United States, at least at this level.”

MASS SHOOTINGS BRING TRUMP TO DAYTON, EL PASO AMID PROTESTS

Ryan added: “There’s mental illness in other countries, there’s video games in other countries. How we take some modest steps to start getting these guns out of the hands of people.”

Last weekend’s mass shootings occurred inside a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, and at a popular nightlife area in downtown Dayton, Ohio. The alleged shooter in El Paso, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, reportedly wrote in an online manifesto before carrying out the attack that he was targeting Mexicans because of the “invasion” of Hispanics into the U.S. – a  detail that has Ryan and other critics of President Trump blaming the hardline immigration rhetoric for, in part at least, inspiring the shooter.

“There are ethical lines that we should not cross,” Ryan said on Sunday. “I think the President hasn’t done a good job at all setting a tone of bringing people together. He’s the first one that torched the joint on Twitter and start a fight. I mean even the supporters of him say this. Like, he can’t do that. This country needs to heal, and I’m looking for new and better, not left or right.”

Despite claims by some of the president’s critics that Trump’s rhetoric and language fueled the El Paso shooter to carry out his attacks, Crusius in his online screed noted that he held his anti-Hispanic views long before Trump’s election in 2016.

While Ryan – who has been in the news a good deal since the shootings last weekend — says he is optimistic about his own presidential run, poll numbers still have him far from being a viable contender in the Democratic presidential primary.

An average of recent polls put together by Real Clear Politics has Ryan averaging less than 1 percent support nationwide, compared to more than 31 percent for former Vice President Joe Biden. Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Bernie Sanders of Vermont sit second and third, respectively, with Warren nabbing just over 18 percent and Sanders pulling in 16.5 percent.

Heinz Ketchup pays to repair ‘reformed ketchup thief’s’ car

A ketchup thief worried about bad karma may have been onto something after all.

In early August, a restaurant owner found two bottles of ketchup and a note at the Perkins Restaurant & Bakery in Forked River, N.J., that told a strange story. Someone had stolen a bottle of ketchup from the restaurant a few weeks earlier only to be hit with a string of bad luck. They were hoping to fix their karma by returning the ketchup (and a little extra).

The photo made headlines and, it turns out, may have worked.

According to the note, someone crashed into the ketchup thief’s car soon after taking the bottle (which reportedly kicked off the string of bad luck). This eventually prompted them to return two large bottles of Heinz Ketchup to the restaurant.

BIKINI BARISTA COFFEE SHIP SLAMS CITY, CLAIMS IT FOCUSES MORE ON OUTFITS THAN ‘DRUGS AND OUR HOMELESS’

Apparently, Heinz found out about the story and tweeted out a message. “Reformed Ketchup Thief,” they began, “We get it, Heinz makes you do crazy things. In honor of your good Ketchup Karma, we’d love to help you with your car damages. DM us. We’ll keep your identity top secret.”

It may have taken a few days, but it looks like the reformed thief’s karma is back in order.

Heinz followed up their original tweet with the message, “Great News! We found the Reformed Ketchup Thief. Thank you to all who helped get the word out.”

Meanwhile, the restaurant’s manager, Charlene Reebe, told the NY Post that she forgives the customer and claimed that she would “hire her in a second.”

“Because if you do something like that, you’re not an awful person,” she told the Post. “You’re an honest person.”

Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth break up less than a year after wedding

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have called it quits less than a year into their marriage, 10 years after meeting on a movie set. 

The two announced their breakup Saturday night after rumors sparked earlier that day when Cyrus posted an Instagram photo in which she wasn’t wearing her wedding ring. 

A representative for the singer told The Associated Press on Saturday that the pair decided a break was best while they focus on “themselves and careers,” but will remain “dedicated parents to all of their animals they share.” They requested privacy. USA TODAY has reached out to representatives for Cyrus and Hemsworth for comment. 

Cyrus, 26, and Hemsworth, 29, met in 2009 while filming an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ “The Last Song” and announced their engagement in 2012. She began wearing her engagement ring again in early 2016, and the couple married in December 2018 in Tennessee

Cyrus has been posting photos this weekend while on vacation in Lake Como with Kaitlynn Carter, who has been in a relationship with Brody Jenner. Paparazzi photos obtained by Entertainment Tonight and TMZ show Cyrus and Carter kissing poolside in Italy.

Earlier this summer, Cyrus opened up about her “modern” marriage to Hemsworth and how she doesn’t feel like she fits into a “stereotypical wife role.” 

“My relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in a place where people would get it,” she told Elle. “I mean, do people really think that I’m at home in a (expletive) apron cooking dinner? I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women.”

She continued: “I have a new song, ‘Never Be Me,’ and the chorus says, ‘If you’re looking for faithful, that’ll never be me. If you’re looking for stable, that’ll never be me. If you’re looking for someone that’ll be all that you need, that’s never going to be me.”

Democrats blast Trump for tweeting conspiracy theory linking Epstein death to Bill Clinton

BEDMINSTER, N.J. – Democratic presidential candidates blasted President Donald Trump on Sunday for re-tweeting a no-evidence conspiracy theory seeking to link Jeffrey Epstein’s death to predecessor Bill Clinton.

“This is another example of our President using this position of public trust to attack his political enemies with unfounded conspiracy theories,” Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Another presidential candidate, Cory Booker, told CNN that Trump is “whipping people up into anger and worse” and added that “this is a very dangerous president that we have right now.”

There is no evidence at all linking Clinton to Epstein’s death Saturday by suicide, yet Trump on Saturday night re-tweeted the comments of a Twitter user named Terrence K. Williams:

“Died of SUICIDE on 24/7 SUICIDE WATCH ? Yeah right! How does that happen #JefferyEpstein had information on Bill Clinton & now he’s dead I see #TrumpBodyCount trending but we know who did this! RT if you’re not Surprised.”

Epstein, the financier who had been facing federal sex trafficking charges, was not on suicide watch when he was found dead in his jail cell early Saturday, officials said.

Other conspiracy theorists on the Internet are trying to link Epstein’s death to Trump, but there is no evidence of that either.

Like Clinton, Trump was once friends with Epstein.

Social media users condemned Trump for basically accusing Clinton of murder.

“Let’s not mince words here: The President of the United States is a nut job,” tweeted attorney George Conway, who is married to Trump presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Kellyanne Conway explained Trump’s re-tweet by saying he “just wants everything to be investigated.”

Bethenny Frankel honors Dennis Shields one year after his death

Bethenny Frankel took to Instagram with a heartfelt tribute to her late boyfriend, Dennis Shields, on the one-year anniversary of his death.

In her lengthy post on Saturday, the “Real Housewives of New York” star recalled waking up on a typical summer morning with her dogs when her “world crumbled and turned upside down in an instant.”

“A man Dennis, who I loved and respected, who was in my life for 30 years unexpectedly passed away,” the 48-year-old wrote.

BETHENNY FRANKEL REVEALS DENNIS SHIELDS WAS WITH HER AT ‘RHONY’ REUNION A MONTH BEFORE HIS DEATH

Shields, who Frankel met years ago but had dated on-and-off since 2016, was found dead after overdosing on a combination of oxycodone, Vicodin and a sleeping pill in his Trump Tower apartment in Manhattan last year. He was 51.

Frankel’s grieving process was captured on the most recent season of the Bravo reality show as she started filming three weeks after the incident.

On the show, she revealed he had proposed to her at one point but she wasn’t quite ready to tie the knot for various reasons. In one episode, she also opened up to a grief counselor and admitted she felt “guilty” about his passing.

BETHENNY FRANKEL AND DENNIS SHIELDS: EVERYTHING WE KNOW ABOUT THEIR ROMANCE

BETHENNY FRANKEL SAYS DENNIS SHIELDS’ DEATH IS ‘EXCRUCIATING’ AND ‘PAINFULLY RAW’

In her tribute, she shared a photo of Shields with her two dogs, Biggy and Smallz, complete with a sweet story of how he convinced her to adopt the pups and helped her name them.

“He loved these dogs and the feelings were mutual,” she wrote.

“At times, it seemed like he and they spoke the same language and they were the only ones who understood him,” she added. “He was a loving, sweet, gentle, brilliant, complicated, hilarious, creative and supportive man. He is missed terribly by so many but lives on in his friends and family and furry loved ones.”

BETHENNY FRANKEL BREAKS SILENCE ON DENNIS SHIELDS’ DEATH

Frankel has since moved on with boyfriend Paul Bernon. They had known each other prior to Shields’ death but she revealed in most recent “RHONY” reunion special that the two reconnected. They regularly post about each other on Instagram and just celebrated his birthday in Italy.

“I am a different person and in a different emotional place than I was a year ago,” she concluded. “The wounds have begun to heal but the scar will remain on my heart forever.”

She is mom to 9-year-old Bryn, whom she shares with ex-husband Jason Hoppy. The two have been in an ongoing legal battle over custody.

Indians Plant 220 Million Trees In A Single Day

Westlake Legal Group 5d501fdc240000a945937eaa Indians Plant 220 Million Trees In A Single Day

LUCKNOW, India (AP) — More than a million Indians planted 220 million trees on Friday in a government campaign to tackle climate change and improve the environment in the country’s most populous state.

Forest official Bivhas Ranjan said students, lawmakers, officials and others planted dozens of species of saplings Friday along roads, rail tracks and in forest lands in northern Uttar Pradesh state. The target of 220 million saplings was achieved by 5 p.m.

Ranjan said the trees, including 16 fruit species, will increase forest cover in the state.

India has pledged to keep one-third of its land area under tree cover, but its 1.3 billion people and rapid industrialization are hampering its efforts.

“We set the target of 220 million because Uttar Pradesh is home to 220 million people,” said state Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

Planting was carried out in 1,430,381 places, including 60,000 villages and 83,000 sites in forest ranges.

“The whole process is online. The pits are geo-tagged and the saplings carry a QR code. So we can record how many saplings are planted and where,” state government spokesman Awanish Awasthi said.

The long-term survival of trees remains a concern. Usually, about 60% of saplings survive, with the rest succumbing to disease or lack of water, he said.

Kavya Sharma, a 7-year-old student, skipped classes in Lucknow, the state capital, to plant two saplings in a forest range.

It was the second huge tree planting campaign in Uttar Pradesh. In July 2016, 50 million saplings were planted in a day.
