The White House responded Monday to the father of the U.S. Navy SEAL killed last month in a raid in Yemen, defending an operation it says produced valuable intelligence that will ultimately save American lives. William Owens’ 36-year-old son, Ryan, and a number of civilians were killed in the Jan. 28 mission — the first such counterterrorist operation approved by President Trump. “I can’t possibly imagine what he’s going through in terms of the loss of a son,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday at his daily press briefing.

The statement-making guests Trump and Democrats are bringing to his big speech to Congress

28 Feb 2017 10:32:47 -0500

Both President Trump and his opposition in Congress look to highlight their sides of ongoing policy battles with their choice of guests for Tuesday night’s joint address to Congress. The act of bringing notable guests, or “Lenny Skutniks,” to such addresses is a well-established tradition. Skutnik committed an act of heroism following the crash of Air Florida Flight 90 in January 1982 and was subsequently invited to then-President Ronald Reagan’s 1982 State of the Union address. For this year, the White House announced that six guests would be joining first lady Melania Trump at the address.

George Takei cleverly tore through Trump's address to Congress using the power of tweets

01 Mar 2017 12:37:13 -0500

Sulu has things to say. Last night President Trump held his first major address to a joint session of Congress. It was his first major speech since his inauguration and, as usual, there was a lot of trolling done by both the internet and the Democratic women of Congress. SEE ALSO: George Takei Reading Erotic Fan Fiction Will Blow Your Trekkie Mind However, once Trump's speech started, no one was laughing. The hour long address featured his future policies on everything from immigration to education. Many celebrities voiced their outrage on Twitter, but the loudest voice seemed to be that of George Takei,
Star Trek veteran and activist.  In a series of tweets, Takei managed to not only share his feelings about the joint session but call Trump out on many of his hypocrisies.   You can't be "a country united against hate" when your AG is a racist, your VP attacks LGBTs, and your top advisor is a White Nationalist. — George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) March 1, 2017   You're not making "communities safer for everyone" by doing the NRA's bidding and making it easier for mentally ill folks to buy guns. — George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) March 1, 2017   You're not "draining the swamp" by appointing a billionaire dimwit as head of Education and an oilman CEO as head of State. — George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) March 1, 2017   They say repeal and replace. You know what I want to see replaced? The GOP Congress. — George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) March 1, 2017 "We cannot allow a beachhead of terrorism form inside America." Yes. And let's start by putting a stop to Radical White Supremacist Terror. — George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) March 1, 2017 Takei may have been speaking out about important issues but he also injected his trademark sense of humor into some of his tweets. Pay attention: "Access to healthcare" is not healthcare. I have "access" to Ryan Reynolds. But he's not covering me. — George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) March 1, 2017   Rebuke and Replace. #2018Midterms — George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) March 1, 2017 Towards the middle of the address, the
Star Trek star had to take a quick break to take care of himself. Sorry, just had to get up to go throw up. — George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) March 1, 2017 But, he was back to call out Trump's claim that education is the "civil rights issue of our time" and rename the Supreme Court. Since education is the "civil rights issue of our time," Betsy DeVos will be handing out vouchers for the back of the bus. — George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) March 1, 2017 After this first Joint Session, I worry about what the SOTUs will be like. Maybe we'll just call them STFUs. — George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) March 1, 2017 In the end, Takei summed up how everyone felt about the session. The Democrats cleared out like someone had just passed some nasty gas in Congress. Oh wait... — George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) March 1, 2017 Oh my, we can only hope Takei narrates all of Trump's speeches. BONUS: George Takei Talks Facebook and EdgeRank Sharing in New Book
