Donald Trump Finally Met His Match In The Handshake Stakes




There’s a certain art to dealing with a Donald Trump handshake.


And Tajikistan’s strongman president, Emomali Rahmon, appears to have gotten it down to a tee.


The authoritarian ruler didn’t let the U.S president’s reputation as a fierce hand-grabber faze him when the pair met at a summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Sunday.


In fact, he had the upper hand — as this viral clip shows:





Perhaps Rahmon analyzed footage of Trump’s February meeting with Japan’s prime minster Shinzō Abe to see how it shouldn’t be done:






Or maybe he studied Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s technique






 


Or he  might have just read HuffPost’s piece on how to defend yourself from a Trump-style handshake.


Here’s how Twitter users responded to Rahmon’s handshake encounter:

Donald Trump’s Son Is Giddy Over Rachel Maddow Airing His Dad’s Tax Return






Donald Trump Jr. suggested he was going to sleep well on Tuesday night after firing off a series of tweets thanking MSNBC host Rachel Maddow for airing a portion of his father’s 2005 federal tax return


Maddow teased earlier Tuesday that her show planned to reveal a portion of President Donald Trump’s tax return. The obtained documents indicate that Trump made $150 million in 2005 and paid $38 million in taxes.


Trump broke with tradition and refused to release his tax returns during the presidential election campaign.


After a lengthy introduction, Maddow had Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston on to discuss the documents. Johnston, who has reported on Trump for decades, said he had received the documents unsolicited in the mail. He even suggested the president himself might have leaked the documents, though offered no evidence.


The White House said it was “totally llegal” to publish Trump’s tax return ― though The Washington Post noted the First Amendment likely protects such an action.


But Trump’s eldest child seemed to delight in Maddow’s audience learning about his father’s wealth and tax return. Donald Trump Jr. also tweeted that it was “simply awesome” to watch “the mainstream media aka #fakenews implode.”


He added in an instagram post, “While they will do absolutely anything to take him down they always seem to make him look better as a byproduct of their biased and seemingly anti-American hatred. #fakenews.”


Take a look at the tweets below.

'SNL's' Movie Trailer Honors The Republican Who Stood Up To Trump




Saturday Night Live” wanted to honor the brave Republican who stood up to President Donald Trump, so they made a trailer for that hero’s biopic. 


The trailer has all the makings of an instant classic: suspense, inspiration, Octavia Spencer. All it’s missing is its star.


“A country in chaos, a nation divided, led by a president with unchecked power,” an ominous voice-over says. “Until one Republican decided enough was enough. A patriot who put country over party, who finally stood up for his nation’s founding values.”


That person is, of course, still to be determined ― much like in real life.


“So you want to speak out against the president? Aren’t you scared?” a man asks the TBD hero.


TBD’s response was... well, we don’t know, but it was probably brave. And he had a “rallying cry that spoke to all people” ― not that we know what it is.


“SNL’s” fake trailer for the “The TBD Story” hopefully provides some inspiration to Republicans in Congress, who have kept quiet despite the controversy surrounding the Trump campaign’s communications with Russia, Trump’s own hateful and xenophobic rhetoric and his unsubstantiated claims against former president Barack Obama.


Even though this conservative hero hasn’t stepped forward yet, the trailer got one thing right: “It’s definitely not Paul Ryan,” according to a fake review from Rolling Stone.


And a lot of people are anxious for “The TBD Story’s” real-life debut.

Jennifer Holliday Won't Perform At Donald Trump's Inauguration After All




Broadway singer Jennifer Holliday has canceled plans to perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, according to The Wrap.


A letter from Holliday to the LGBT community published by The Wrap on Saturday called her initial plans to appear at an inaugural event a “lapse of judgement.” Holliday apologized “for being uneducated on the issues that affect every American at this crucial time in history and for causing such dismay and heartbreak to my fans.”


“I was honestly just thinking that I wanted my voice to be a healing and unifying force for hope through music to help our deeply polarized country,” she wrote. “Regretfully, I did not take into consideration that my performing for the concert would actually instead be taken as a political act against my own personal beliefs and be mistaken for support of Donald Trump and Mike Pence.”


Holliday retweeted a

from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestant Victoria “PorkChop” Parker thanking Holliday for canceling her performance:



@LadyJHOLLIDAY Has declined the offer to perform for #Trump #ThankYou Make your voice heard! https://t.co/8N93D2xqrx

— PorkChop Parker (@PorkChopLA)



Holliday called herself a “bi-partisan songbird,” noting she has performed for Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.


Others who agreed to perform at Trump’s inauguration include country singer Toby Keith and rock band 3 Doors Down. Actor Jon Voight also is slated to appear.

Harrison Ford Definitely Did Not Endorse Donald Trump

Sorry, Trump supporters, Harrison Ford isn't one of you. 


The below photo of the "Indiana Jones" actor holding a Trump campaign sign has been circulating around the Web today, leading some to believe the contrary.



Harrison Ford says #OHIO "Get out and vote for Donald J Trump America's last hope" #TrumpTrain #Trump 2016 pic.twitter.com/yKS8HkoP3l

— Chris (@inyourface34)



As it turns out, the photo is most definitely fake. The shot was actually posted online a year ago by Ford, when he was participating in a Reddit AMA




Ford's rep confirmed the photo was fake to BuzzFeed News, adding, "He's not endorsing him for president." 


In case you needed any more proof that Ford isn't a fan of The Donald, the actor once shredded Trump for praising his acting work.


After Trump said he loved movies with heroic presidents, like Ford in "Air Force One," the Hollywood legend brought the businessman-turned-politician back down to earth. 


"Donald, it was a movie," Ford said. "It's not like this in real life. But how would you know?"
