Entertainment Back in the habit! Nuns attend President Trump's rally in Michigan
No, Trump hasn’t been the best president for Black America since Lincoln
Here’s what Trump has — and hasn’t — done for Black communities in the past four years.Over the past year, Trump has shouted this from the lectern at campaign rallies and from the balcony at the White House as a play to Black voters, a countermessage to his racist rhetoric. The phrase has morphed over time, starting in the fall of 2019 as something more restrained — “We’ve done more for African Americans in three years than the broken Washington establishment has done in more than 30 years” — and rising to the bold “No president has done more for our Black community” this year.
Thousands of President Trump's most earnest supporters arrived to his campaign stop in Michigan on Friday, but it was five nuns that snagged his attention.
While speaking to the crowd that rallied at Oakland International Airport in Waterford Township about his bout of COVID-19, Trump directly addressed The Dominican Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary from Hartland.
'Sisters, I wasn’t feeling too good,' he told the women, who arrived in religious habits and sat among others who carried 'Make America Great Again' signs and donned MAGA paraphernalia.
Music's most celebrated—and most notorious—managers
Managing a successful rock band or music act takes an eye for talent, thick skin, savvy business acumen, and a good deal of charisma. For the most part, music management has produced some truly gifted individuals, genuine people with their clients' best interests at heart. But the profession has also reared an ugly collection of scheming opportunists who care little for those they represent and are only interested in lining their own pockets. Click through the gallery and take a look at some music managers who have made the greatest impression—for better or worse!
'And they gave me something called Regeneron,' Trump added. 'The next morning, sister, I woke up and it was like God touched my shoulder.'

Democrats’ 4-Year Plan to Win Michigan Back From Trump
Donald Trump won the state by fewer than 11,000 votes in 2016. Here’s how Democrats plan to flip it back.“There are 11,000 more votes in Detroit,” Garlin Gilchrist told himself that night. “There are 11,000 Black men who could vote to change that.
He was transported via Marine One to Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and spent three days receiving medical treatment.
Throughout his stay, he and doctors presented an optimistic prognosis that was derailed when Mark Meadows, White House Chief of Staff, told reporters that his 'vitals were concerning.'
Doctors administered various treatments to Trump, including a dose of an antibody cocktail from the company Regeneron. The drug was recently sidelined from vaccine trials over 'potential safety concerns.'
Trump has since returned to the White House, and has attempted to level his COVID-19 recovery as justification for previously flouting CDC guidelines and minimizing the pandemic. He called catching the virus a 'blessing from God.'
The Dominican Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary traveled 20 miles to champion Trump, but it's not the first time nuns have showed support.
How ‘America First’ Became America Alone
In his desperation to restore and showcase American strength, Donald Trump has made the country weaker.The fallout at the UN was just the latest episode in the long-running soap opera over Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iranian nuclear agreement. Dismissing the deal as among the worst in history, Trump opted instead for a policy of maximum pressure to force Iran’s capitulation. His efforts were part of a wider shift during his presidency toward diplomatic unilateralism, pulling the U.S. out of key international agreements in favor of a return to the raw-power politics that he believed better suited American strength.
The habit began last Saturday when nuns with the Children of Mary Newark, Ohio, showed up wearing MAGA face masks and holding a Bible to his Circleville event.
During the rally, Trump also railed against Fox News Channel and made fun of Fox host Laura Ingraham for wearing a mask.
Ingraham was in a VIP spot because she is filming a special with the president for her show Friday.
'The crowds are much bigger, there's more enthusiasm, but Fox is the big difference,' Trump said comparing his 2016 run to this one. 'Somewhere along the line we lost Fox, but that's OK.'
The president was angered recently when he saw that Fox News Channel, which leans more conservative, had been airing campaign events headlined by his rival, Democrat Joe Biden and one of Biden's top surrogates, former President Barack Obama.

The president had prefaced his statement with, 'We still have a few great ones at Fox.'
The network carried Trump's full Michigan rally live - the first of 17 rallies he'll hold in four days - despite Biden holding an event in Iowa that started shortly after.
Biden's was then played.
Fox anchor Bill Hemmer said the network aired both 'to give you a gauge of how two candidates are running very different campaigns.'
For one, Trump's isn't abiding by basic COVID restrictions, packing people in and not enforcing mask-wearing.
When Trump looked out into the Michigan crowd to scout Ingraham, he was surprised to see was wearing one.
'I can't recognize you. Is that a mask? No way, are you wearing a mask?' he shouted to Ingraham. 'I've never seen her in a mask.'
'Look at you, Laura, he went on. 'She's being very politically correct. Whoa! Whoa!' Trump added.
At Trump's recent flurry of rallies, of majority of attendees have been unmasked, as the president has mocked Democratic nominee Joe Biden for his mask-wearing.

Superstition or strategy? Trump ends campaign in same city as 2016
Normally, Republicans don't win Michigan -- but Donald Trump took the US state in a shocking upset four years ago. - No 'better choice' - 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was so sure of winning Michigan that she barely set foot in the state. She had added a last-minute rally in Grand Rapids on the last day -- prompting Trump to schedule his own.Unlike in the American South, there is no Michigan county that votes 90 percent Trump. The electorate is more evenly divided, more moderate.
Trump has been using a clip of Ingraham's show in the video reel that he's played at each rally, where she goes after Biden.
His Michigan stop - located halfway between Detroit and Flint - was the first of the day, with just four days left until votes are finished being cast in the 2020 presidential race.
Trump will travel to Wisconsin, which he won over Hillary Clinton, next.
He'll end his day in Minnesota, where his event was capped to 250 attendees due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Trump is hoping Minnesota, another part of the Democrats' so-called 'blue wall,' will flip his way this time.
In Michigan he, again, went after the state's Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, whl was targeted by right-wing militia members in a kidnapping plot.
Trump has continued to bash her coronavirus restrictions anyway, falsely claiming Democratic governors are keeping precautions in place to hurt the president politically.
During Friday's rally he got a raucous 'lock her up! chant.
'Not me!' he said looking at the members of the media at the venue. 'They blame me everytime that happens.'
He also told the Michigan crowd he was sure he'd win Minnesota because of Rep. Ilhan Omar, a favorite target of Trump's and one of just two Muslim women in Congress.
She represents one-fourth of the House Democrats 'squad' of progressive freshmen lawmakers.
