Before visiting the CDC in Atlanta on Friday, President Trump toured the devastation and destruction caused by a tornado in Tennessee. A loyal reader emailed Sandrarose.com to say Trump toured a neighborhood in Cookeville, Tennessee where 24 people died and many lost their homes.

Trump offered comfort and condolences to families who lost everything. "We love them, they're special people," he said. The president declared a state of emergency and promised disaster aid to help the residents rebuild their shattered neighborhood. Read the email below.

Hello,
First, I would like to say that I am a loyal reader. Second, after reading the Trump post I had to come in and say the President was also in Tennessee yesterday declaring it a state of emergency. We had tornadoes that landed in parts of Nashville and surrounding areas and killed people. Thousands of people are without homes and electricity days after the storm. I don't specifically know the schedule for the president and the recent virus is completely serious but I'm sure he was assessing the grounds in Tennessee yesterday.

Sir Keith Holman writes in to correct my earlier post on Beyonce Knowles presenting Colin Kaepernick with the SI Muhammad Ali Award.

Beyonce wore a black sequined dress similar to the sequined jumpsuit worn by pop icon Michael Jackson in his "Rock With You" music video. I incorrectly stated MJ's jumpsuit was designed by Michael Bush (of Tompkins & Bush).

Video of mother fighting kid in store

It's shameful what people will do for 15 minutes of Internet fame. Loyal reader Jeniefrumdabloc was so concerned over the violence depicted in this video that she sent me the link. "This is awful Auntie," she wrote in her email. The video shows a mother fighting with her son after a shopper accused the boy of stealing grapes. But after viewing the video for a minute or so, it became apparent that the action in the video was totally staged. The mother's reaction to the grape stealing is over-the-top and comical.

Bu Thiam family at Disney World

Loyal reader Becca writes in about friend of the blog Bu Thiam (Chris Brown's manager)

Hi Sandra!
I was surfing through instagram the other day when I noticed that Rihanna liked a picture that "Bu" Thiam (Traci Ross' ex/Akon's little brother) had posted. It was a beautiful picture of himself, his daughter, and his daughter's mother at Disney world. It looks like they went to Disney world to celebrate his daughter's birthday. I'm not sure if he and his daughter's mother are back together or not, but I just thought the pictures were really nice. With so many black parents at each other's throats, it's always good to see two parents be able to come together and get along and have a healthy relationship, even if they are no longer together... I found a few more photos on her IG. Enjoy.
