Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, has slammed Donald Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr, saying the US president is petty for not letting the White House staff hang Barack Obama’s potrait in the White House until he leaves office while also slamming Trump Jr as a ‘sick person’ after the president’s son suggested that Biden was a paedophile.
While talking about Trump’s response to the covid-19 pandemic, Biden went after Donald Trump Jr. for sharing a meme on Saturday that suggested Biden was a pedophile.
The meme showed an image of Biden saying ‘See you later, alligator!’ An alligator responded with, ‘In a while, pedophile!’
It’s sick, it’s sick, it’s sick” Biden said in response
”But he is his father’s son.’ he added
NBC News reported on Monday that President Trump would not be hosting President Obama at the White House for the traditional portrait unveiling which is a ceremony that usually takes place in a president’s first term when his predecessor’s portrait is unveiled.
According to the report, Trump doesn’t plan to extend the invitation to Obama and Obama doesn’t plan to attend either.
Biden while speaking to Yahoo’s Brittany Shepherd on her Tuesday night show said the snub was ‘venal’ and ‘so petty’ and also spoke about ‘Obamagate,’ the term Trump has been using to blame the origins of the Russia probe on Obama’s administration.
‘This is a pattern: diversion, diversion, diversion. Don’t speak to whatever the issues before us are,’ Biden began. ‘My God, “Obamagate,'” the former vice president scoffed.
‘And he also by the way just said, I read, he’s not going to allow President Obama’s picture to be hung in the White House as long as he’s president,’ Biden continued. ‘. That’s another inducement for you to make sure he’s not president beyond January 20.’
‘Come on, this is so venal, so petty,’ Biden said. ‘The greatest crime? I mean my Lord,’ the presumptive nominee continued, returning to ‘Obamagate.’
Shepherd then asked Biden about the “pedophile” posts against him by Donald Trump Jr on social media.
Shepherd told Biden that it reminded her of ‘Pizzagate,’ a conspiracy theory that revolved around 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton running a child sex trafficking ring out of the basement of a D.C. pizza place – which doesn’t have a basement. ‘Pizzagate’ was difficult for the Clinton campaign to push back on because it was so farfetched.
Biden responded saying Trump Jr. was trying to ‘get something going on the internet.’ calling it a Trumpian tactic. ‘Like his father says, if you say it enough people will believe it.’
‘No, I don’t want to get down in the mud with these guys,’ he continued.
‘I mean, look, people know who I am. That good news is the bad news – they know me. They know my faults, they know my talents, they know me, so it’s hard to lay on me some of the things that are totally out of sync with anything in my whole life that anyone has ever said in their life.’
‘But this is bizarre,’ Biden said, of Trump Jr. floating this idea that he can’t be around kids.
He also talked about Tara Reade, the former staffer who claims she was sexually assaulted by Biden in 1993.
‘The truth is this never, ever, happened,’ Biden
‘And what I’m reading now online and I’m seeing in the national press, apparently there’s a lot of other people who are wondering whether or not it happened.’
‘It’s not my role to ascribe a motive to anything that she’s done or not done, except to assure you it never, ever, ever happened,’ Biden said.
Roger Federer Replaces Lionel Messi As The World’s Highest-Paid Athlete
Roger Federer is the world’s highest-paid athlete for 2020 as the Covid-19 pandemic knocked football’s Lionel Messi off top spot, according to the annual Forbes list released on Friday.
The Swiss tennis great, owner of a men’s record 20 Grand Slam singles titles, earned $106.3 million in the last 12 months, including $100 million via endorsements, to move up four places and become the first player from his sport to top the list.
Footballers Cristiano Ronaldo ($105 million), Messi ($104 million) and Neymar ($95.5 million) and American basketball player LeBron James ($88.2 million) rounded out the top five.
“The coronavirus pandemic triggered salary cuts for soccer stars Messi and Ronaldo, clearing the way for a tennis player to rank as the world’s highest-paid athlete for the first time,” said Kurt Badenhausen, senior editor at Forbes.
“Roger Federer is the perfect pitchman for companies, resulting in an unparalleled endorsement portfolio of blue-chip brands worth $100 million a year for the tennis great.”
Japan’s Naomi Osaka ($37.4 million), who was ranked 29th on the list, surpassed fellow tennis player Serena Williams ($36 million) as the world’s highest-earning female athlete.
Osaka and Williams were the only women on the list.
Basketball players led all sports with 35 players among the top 100. American football occupied 31 spots, none higher than six-times Super Bowl champion Tom Brady ($45 million) who was ranked 25th.
Football was the next most-represented sport with 14 players, followed by tennis (six), boxing and mixed martial arts (five), golf (four), motor racing (three), and baseball and cricket with one each.
Real Madrid Offer Man United Four Players To Seal Pogba Deal
Real Madrid has offered four players to Manchester United in a bid to finally land Paul Pogba, the UK Sun reports.
The players include James Rodriguez and Martin Odegaard.
It is understood that Lucas Vazquez and Brahim Diaz could also be thrown in as a deal sweetener.
Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has remained an admirer of his compatriot, who has missed most of the Premier League season with a series of ankle issues.
However, the LaLiga giants are still keen on Pogba, although United will insist he is not for sale.
With the COVID-19 affecting clubs financially, Madrid will press on with their pursuit and will try to do swap deals in order to secure their targets.
A Ghanaian Lady Who Was Bathed With Acid In Saudi Arabia Shares Her Story
A Ghanaian lady who was bathed with acid in Saudi Arabia has come out to share her story and how she is contemplating taking her life.
According to the woman narrating her sad ordeal to Crime Check Foundation, somewhere in December 2018, she went to braid her hair in a salon in Saudi Arabia and that was where the unfortunate incident happened.
She narrated that the acid was not meant for her but rather the hairdresser but she was the one that got the worse injury.
She revealed that the hairdresser identified as Rabi was having a fight with the lady who committed the heinous act also known as Salomey over an apartment.
Read her full story below:
“As Rabi was braiding my hair, she stopped to go and eat. As she was eating, we heard a knock on her door and she asked me to help her open it. As soon as I opened the door all I saw was someone pushed me and poured a substance on me. That was my end”
“I had to come back home because I couldn’t see anything talk less of going to work to cater for myself. Rabi too visited me only twice and have never visited again. I returned to Ghana without a pin. Here I am without even a pesewa to go to the hospital because I still feel pains and sick always”.
Saudi authorities promised to arrest her attacker but Memuna says she could not follow up on the case after she was brought to Ghana.
She has completely given up on life and prefers to die. “I’d rather die than to live this painful life,” she said.
Memuna narrated that when children see her they start running away because they think they have seen a ghost.
“One day my mother wasn’t well so I decided to wash our clothes and go dry them outside. As I was drying the things, two children that were standing by were having a conversation and one told the other that- you see this sister her face is really scary and looks like a monster, that made me less of a human being”.
Her mother, Hajia Safia, who could not hold her tears said it was difficult when she first saw pictures of her daughter after the incident.
“It wasn’t easy for me at all because she is all I’ve got in life. She traveled to go and seek greener pastures to support the family and see what has happened to her” she added.
