Politicians Caught Eating: Hillary Clinton

Filed under: PolitikHillary Clinton

HIlary Clinton yum

Hillary Clinton was spotted taking a bite out of dictators in Rome on Thursday night!

The U.S. Secretary of State dined with her team of colleagues, while in Italy to discuss Libyan leader Muammar Quaddafi's frozen assets and reportedly release the money to aid Libyans caught in the country's conflict.

Doesn't look like they're focusing too much on the issue at hand with all that wine around, but everyone needs to cut loose every once in a while! Ha!

Oscar Nominated Restrepo Co-Director Killed In Libya

restrepo co director tim hetherington killed in libya

Such a tragedy!

Less than two months after the Academy Awards ceremony, Oscar nominated Restrepo co-director Tim Hetherington has been killed in Libya while documenting fighting between Gaddafi's forces and rebels.

Along with Tim, Getty photographer Chris Hondros is in "extremely critical condition" following a severe brain injury from a mortar attack. Just awful! We hope he recovers.

Here's what ABC News' James Goldston had to say about Hetherington:

"Tim was one of the bravest photographers and filmmakers I have ever met. During his shooting for the Nightline specials he very seriously broke his leg on a night march out of a very isolated forward operating base that was under attack. He had the strength and character to walk for four hours through the night on his shattered ankle without complaint and under fire, enabling that whole team to reach safety."

Such a brave, fearless man whose work has impacted many, many lives. He will be missed.

Our thoughts go out to Tim's family, friends, and peers during this difficult time.

Saint Angelina Visits Somali Refugees At Tunisia-Libya Border

Such a dangerous time for her to be taking such a trip, but these people desperately need help and she's the kind of woman who goes where she is needed.

Since February, hundreds of thousands of Libyan people have fled their country to escape the constant violence brought on by it's leader. Many of these refugees have found sanctuary in the bordering country of Tunisia and thankfully, the country has show nothing but friendship and understanding to these people.

This morning, in an effort to bring awareness to the brave people of Tunisia who have started relief operations for the refugees, Angelina Jolie visited the country and brought along with her a very important contribution from the Jolie-Pitt Foundation: safe passage for 177 people to return to their countries of origin and a brand new ambulance for one of the many relief centers aiding those Libyans who have been injured crossing the border.

In a statement about her visit, the Goodwill Ambassador said:

"The outpouring of generosity from the Tunisian people says so much for the future of this country. It is a sign of the openness sweeping across the region … We would encourage others, individuals and governments, to continue to support and assist with the needs on the ground."

Such a truly tragic situation, one we hope with the help of people like Angelina and the brave supporters in Tunisia, can come to an end soon.

Donald Trump's Idea Of Strengthening Foreign Relations Is To "Screw" People

Filed under: PolitikDonald Trump

We have to admit - we're kind of with him on this one. (Under these very specific circumstances.)

Donald Trump is telling folks that if nominated as a Republican candidate for the next presidential election, one of his platforms will be strengthening foreign relations. As it so happens, The Donald already has quite a repertoire with some heavy-hitting foreign dignitaries, including Libyan leader Moammer Gadhafi.

But don't take that as a sign that he and Moammer are buddies. Quite the contrary, actually. As Trump explained on Fox News today:

"I rented him a piece of land. He paid me more for one night than the land was worth for two years, and then I didn't let him use the land. That's what we should be doing. I don't want to use the word 'screwed', but I screwed him."

Yeah, you did! Ha!

As humorous as we find this, we also can't help but feel like Colonel Gaddafi wouldn't respond too pleasantly should Trump actually be catapulted into The Oval Office.

We also can't help but feel like this is all a waste of time. Wasn't his running for president just a joke?!
