Ivanka Trump's vaccine selfie sparked outrage and indignation when she shared the photos on Twitter.com last week.

The eldest daughter of former President Donald Trump tweeted photos of herself taking the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine on April 14.

"Today, I got the shot!!! I hope that you do too! Thank you Nurse Torres!!!" Ivanka tweeted.

But, instead of praise from her followers, the responses she received were mostly negative.

"You're a sad joke," tweeted one follower.

Another Twitter follower wrote: "Nice of you to get on board around a year late."

While a third user tweeted: "Daddy said it was a hoax, just a few days ago, again, after he and pence and your hubby let over 500,000 die needlessly, the least you can do is get a shot."

However, some Trump haters were appreciative.

One Twitter follower wrote: "Listen, I absolutely HATE her too, but we gotta admit this is the right move on her part."

While others thanked Ivanka for her efforts to get more Americans vaccinated.

Matt Gaetz reportedly asked the White House for a blanket presidential pardon ahead of a federal investigation into sex trafficking allegations.

Gaetz is a Republican U.S. representative for Florida's 1st congressional district. The 38-year-old politician is being investigated by the U.S. Justice Department for his relationship with a 17-year-old girl.

He reportedly paid for the girl to travel across state lines. The age of consent varies in many states.

Gaetz reportedly asked former President Donald Trump to pardon him in advance of possible charges for misconduct and trafficking.

He proposed to his fiancee in December at Trump's Florida resort. He reportedly bragged that the former president insisted on hosting the wedding.

Gaetz's request was ultimately rejected, according to multiple reports.

Gaetz alleged he was extorted by a New York Times reporter before the newspaper published the article about his relationship.

He denied asking Trump for a preemptive presidential pardon, according to POLITICO.

"The recent false allegations against me are not something I've ever discussed with Trump, pardons or otherwise," he told POLITICO.

Trump issued dozens of pardons in his final days as president. Pardons went to his former advisor Steve Bannon and rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, pleaded with former President Donald Trump to urge his followers to get the coronavirus vaccine.

On NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday, Fauci told Anchor Chuck Todd it's "disturbing" that most Trump supporters are unwilling to get the coronavirus vaccine.

"I want to talk about vaccine," said Todd. "We are seeing a bigger divide by politics. We talked about it earlier. For instance, among Trump voters, 47% have said they'll not be vaccinated, 30% say yes, and half Republican men say they're not going to take this vaccine."

Todd continued noted that Trump was not among four living presidents to appear in a vaccine PSA: "You have the PSA with all the former presidents except one, President Trump, in there. Do you think he needs to be enlisted here ... to get his voters to take this vaccine?"

Fauci replied, "Chuck, I hope he does because the numbers that you gave are so disturbing, how such a large proportion of a certain group of people would not want to get vaccinated merely because of political consideration. It makes absolutely no sense, and I've been saying that for so long."

Neither man informed viewers that Trump was not invited to participate in the vaccine PSA with the living former presidents -- Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George Bush and Jimmy Carter.

Fauci added, "We've got to dissociate political persuasion from what's common sense, no-brainer public health things. The history of vaccinology has rescued us from smallpox, from polio, from measles, from all of the other diseases. What is the problem here?"

Stacey Dash has apologized for being a supporter of former President Donald Trump. Dash, 54, tells DailyMailTV she is a changed woman and she regrets the error of her ways.

"Being a supporter of Trump has put me in some kind of box that I don't belong in. But he's not the president. I'm going to give the president that we have right now a chance," Dash said. "We have a new president," she added.

The former conservative political commentator was suspended from Fox News for cursing on air while discussing a speech former President Barack Obama gave on terrorism.

Dash apologized for that, too. "I've lived my life being angry, which is what I was on Fox News. I was the angry, conservative, Black woman. And at that time in my life it was who I was."

She added: "I'm not a victim of anyone. Working for Fox at the time, that was my job. I did my job from the place I was at. Stacey now would never work at Fox, would never work for a news network or be a news contributor."

Dash dismissed accusations that she flip-flops her views based on the political party in power.

"There are things that I am sorry for. Things that I did say, that I should not have said them the way I said them. They were very arrogant and prideful and angry. And that's who Stacey was, but that's not who Stacey is now. Stacey's someone who has compassion, empathy.”

Less than one month into his presidency, Joe Biden ordered an airstrike on Eastern Syria, killing 22.

U.S. airstrikes targeted Iran-backed bases in Syria, the Pentagon announced late Thursday.

According to the Associated Press, the airstrikes were "recommended" to Biden by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.

"I'm confident in the target that we went after, we know what we hit," Austin told reporters on Thursday, according to the Associated Press.

The news struck fear into the hearts of many Americans who enjoyed four war-free years under former President Donald Trump.

Even before the airstrikes in Syria, dozens of Democrats pressured Biden to give up his sole authority to launch nuclear weapons as commander in chief.

All presidents have the sole authority to launch nuclear weapons, but Biden's own party wants him to give up that authority.

Rep. Jimmy Panetta, Democrat-Calif., said Monday in a tweet that he is "calling on" Biden "to install checks [and] balances in our nuclear command-and-control structure."

The briefcase containing the nuclear codes -- dubbed the "nuclear football" -- was not handed off to Biden by his predecessor, Trump, as per tradition, since Trump declined to attend Biden's inauguration in January.

Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi previously expressed concern over the nuclear codes when Republican President Donald Trump was in office.

But this time she is asking Biden to relinquish the nuclear codes, presumably due to his declining mental status.

"While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so," wrote Panetta in his letter. "The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war. Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes."

Former President Donald Trump was acquitted by the U.S. Senate in his historic second impeachment trial on Saturday, Feb. 13.

57 Senators -- including 7 Republicans -- voted to impeach the former president on incitement of insurrection charges stemming from the Capitol riots on January 6. 43 Republican senators voted to acquit.

67 votes are required for a conviction in the Senate.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was shaken and outraged during a press conference following the vote to acquit. She lashed out at the GOP and called Republicans "cowards" for voting to acquit Trump.

"What we saw today was a cowardly group of Republicans," Speaker Pelosi said.

Pelosi becomes the first House Speaker in U.S. history to launch two failed impeachment trials.

Many Americans voiced their frustration that the Democrats wasted taxpayer dollars and time on another impeachment trial when they should be working to help unemployed Americans.

On Saturday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell -- who voted to acquit -- said Trump "spent weeks" provoking riots in the Capitol, and "didn't do his job" to stop the riots. He said Trump's actions "were a disgraceful dereliction of duty."

"There is no question, none that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of that day. No question about it,” said McConnell, pictured with Pelosi on December 8, 2016.

McConnell hinted that Trump could still be tried for unknown offenses in the criminal justice system.

But Trump's legal team countered that the same senators sitting in judgment of Trump spent months encouraging rioters last year.

Some senators who voted to convict Trump for a second time donated cash to a fund to bond rioters out of jail to continue their mayhem and destruction. Dozens of people lost their lives during the riots that caused billions of dollars in property damage last summer.

Earlier in the day, before closing arguments were set to begin, the Democrats changed the rules and decided to call witnesses to testify.

But Senate Democrats folded quickly when Trump's legal team presented a list of 300 defense witnesses. Pelosi's name was first on the list followed by D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser.

Trump's lawyer, Michael Van Der Veen, planned to ask Pelosi and Bowser if they had advanced knowledge of a "planned attack" in Washington, DC on Jan. 6.

Van Der Veen said it's "very clear that... House Democrats hate Donald Trump."

The win was bittersweet for Van Der Veen, who told the press, "We demolished their case, and they were like a dying animal that we had trapped in the corner."

Van Der Veen said the senators failed to prove the merits of their case.

But he choked back tears as he revealed the win came at a cost. He said his entire family received death threats, his home was attacked, and his business and law firm were under siege.

Trump released a statement following his second acquittal on Saturday. He thanked his "team of dedicated lawyers and others for their tireless work upholding justice and defending truth" and he thanked "all of the United States Senators and Members of Congress who stood proudly for the Constitution..."

He added:

"It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party in America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree."

He concluded his statement by saying the movement to Make America Great Again is just beginning and that he "has so much to share with you" in the coming months.

Former President Donald Trump took pity on thousands of National Guard troops who were booted out of the Capitol Building and forced to sleep in a cold parking garage.

5,000 National Guard troops, who were sleeping in hallways and in the Senate cafeteria, were ordered out of the Capitol building because one soldier didn't wear a face mask.

An anonymous source in Washington DC told TPUSA Chief Creative Officer Benny Johnson that for the last week his battalion had been sleeping on the floor in the Senate cafeteria after Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) ordered the troops out of the Capitol building and they were forced to sleep in a parking garage in 38-degree temperatures.

The parking garage has one bathroom and 1 power outlet for 5,000 soldiers to use.

Some of the soldiers hadn't showered or changed clothes in 2 weeks.

Governors Ron DeSantis (R-FL), Chris Sununu (R-NH) and Greg Abbott (R-TX) were so outraged over the treatment of their troops that they ordered the soldiers to return home immediately.

After the public backlash, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi allowed the troops back inside the Capitol building.

According to One America News Network (OANN), Trump gave permission for the remaining troops to stay at his luxury Trump Hotel in DC if any of them needed a warm bed, a shower or a hot meal.

Trump reportedly called the soldier's treatment "Disgusting and unforgivable."

Prior to Trump's offer, the troops were forced to subsist on bowls of chili and an occasional slice of pizza donated by sympathetic congressmen.

Hillary Clinton was reportedly so devastated over her loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 election, that President Obama had to urge her several times to concede to Trump.

In a new book, "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign", written by Amie Parnes and Jonathan Allen, Clinton called Trump and told him she would be "supportive of the country's success."
