Donald Trump Wades Into International Controversy With Tweet About Terminally Ill Infant — Is He Actually Trying To Help??

Filed under: Baby BlabberLegal MattersPolitikDonald TrumpTwitterHealth

Donald Trump actually tweeted something nice for a change on Monday — and even that is mired in controversy thanks to literally everything else he's done.

In case you haven't followed the story of U.K. infant Charlie Gard, the 10-month-old suffers from a rare genetic disorder called mitochondrial depletion syndrome that keeps him from breathing and moving on his own. He's currently being kept alive by machines.

But doctors say there's nothing they can do to fix his declining condition, and that turning off the machines is the merciful thing to do as Charlie will only suffer more. And the courts agree.

His parents have been fighting, but last week the European Court Of Human Rights upheld a lower court ruling that "it was likely that Charlie would suffer significant harm if his present suffering was prolonged without any realistic prospect of improvement, and the experimental therapy would be of no effective benefit."

It's a heartbreaking case. Even the Pope weighed in, saying he prays Charlie will be treated "until the end" per the parents' wishes.

Charlie's parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, set up a GoFundMe to pay for an experimental treatment in the U.S. — one which Connie says has never been tried on his particular gene but has helped with a similar syndrome. So far they've raised an astounding $1.7 million.

That's where Donald Trump comes in. He tweeted on behalf of the U.S.:

Lamest Boyfriend Ever Tries To Crowdfund An Engagement Ring — And FAILS!

Filed under: Oops!Love LinePut A Ring On ItGIFsViral: News

Wow.

There are a lot of bad ways to propose, but we can't think of any more undignified than trying to crowdfund the ring.

First off, assuming your S.O. has the Internet, you're completely spoiling the magical moment of popping the question. #Surprise?

Also, buying an engagement ring is SUPPOSED to hurt your wallet. It's a sacrifice showing your commitment, symbolized in a shiny little accessory. Isn't getting other people to foot the bill for it kind of defeating the gesture??

Alas, poor William Oliver probably isn't too worried about those points — he's too busy being humiliated by the fact his campaign is a massive failure!

He originally wrote on his GoFundMe page last week that he wants YOUR help in buying a ring for his girlfriend Alexandra:

Some sad stories really do have a happy ending.

Last month, Beyoncé's songwriter, Diana Gordon, revealed she had found her long-lost brother, David, after he had been missing for 16 years!

The songstress explained on a GoFundMe page that, on December 19, she had discovered her sibling alive and homeless at a bus stop in Los Angeles.

The 28-year-old wrote:

"You see, after the first decade went by, I lost hope of ever finding him. These last few years, I accepted the fact that we were never going to find him. In my heart I had put him to rest."

The Sorry writer was also shocked to find him in California, considering it was across the country from their childhood home in New York:

"Los Angeles has a population of nearly 10 million people. How is it that he was sitting alone at a bus stop less than a few miles from my home? Also we are all from New York, so it is a surprise to find him here."

The "Becky with the good hair" lyricist recalled that David didn't recognize her when she approached him, and realized he had developed mental health issues, adding:
