Donald Trump Says Texas Church Shooting "Isn"t A Guns Situation" — But Twitter Reminds Him That"s Absolutely What It Is

Donald Trump has yet another divisive and passive response in the face of tragedy. As we're sure you heard, a 26-year-old gunman killed at least 26 people and wounded about 20 others inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday. In response, POTUS told reporters the shooting "isn't a guns situation," but rather a [...] Donald Trump has yet another divisive and passive response in the face of tragedy. As we're sure you heard, a 26-year-old gunman killed at least 26 people and wounded about 20 others inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday. In response, POTUS told reporters the shooting "isn't a guns situation," but rather a "mental health problem." How about: it's both. We should care about mental health AND gun control -- and why in the world someone with mental health issues can have access to an assault rifle in the first place. Related: Trump Is The First Result When You Search For 'Hitler' On Twitter At the press briefing, Trump said "mental health is your problem here," calling the shooter a "very deranged individual" with "a lot of problems over a long period of time." He went on to say that it's "a little too soon" to get into gun control policy. He said the same thing after the Las Vegas shooting and has yet to do anything about that attack either. You can watch Trump express his "thoughts and prayers" (below): ...Americans do what we do best: we pull together. We join hands.

The 25-year-old entertainer spent the earlier part of her Saturday (September 23) in New York City as she attended the Global Citizen Festival. There, she was named Global Citizen Mental Health Ambassador. “I am so proud to partner with Global Citizen as their official ambassador for Mental Health with focus on vulnerable communities around the world,” Demi said of her new position. “With their support and our combined platforms, I will be able to further my work around some of the issues I deeply care about as it relates to mental health and well-being around the world.” That night, Demi flew to Las Vegas for a surprise performance of her hit song “Sorry Not Sorry” during DJ Khaled‘s closing set at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival. Click inside for 20+ photos of Demi’s busy day, and to read her full letter on her Global Citizen ambassadorship… “I am so proud to partner with Global Citizen as their official ambassador for Mental Health with focus on vulnerable communities around the world. With their support and our combined platforms, I will be able to further my work around some of the issues I deeply care about as it relates to mental health and well-being around the world. In October 2016, I, along with my friend and partner Mike Bayer, went to Kurdistan to visit one of the biggest refugee camps in the world. The experience of meeting with some of the displaced families, and my encounter with a very young girl who told me all she wants is to just be happy (what a simple and yet completely out of reach wish), will stay with me for the rest of my life. As a first step in my partnership with Global Citizen, over the past year we have worked to identify the right partner who will help us bring a bit of a solace and peace to some of the displaced children in Iraq. We will be bringing Save the Children’s HEART program (which offers healing, psychologial support, and basic education through the arts) there this year. The trauma that displaced families and children all around the world feel from losing not only their homes, but also some of the people closest to them, is unfathomable and has long lasting impacts. My hope is that this program can bring at bit of comfort to those who need the most. This isn’t about politics or race or religion. It’s simply about humanity and protecting one another.”.....»»

It is just as much about mental fitness too,” Harry continued. “The military has faced the challenge of dealing with things like post-traumatic stress, anxiety and depression.

VOTE: Tyrese"s Baby Momma Demands He Get A Mental Health Evaluation — Do YOU Agree?!

The latest move in the bizarre saga of Tyrese Gibson's legal battle is by his ex.

Norma Gibson, who testified the Fast & Furious actor physically abused both her and their daughter Shayla, is now demanding a mental health evaluation. TMZ reports attorney Aleen Khanjian told the judge on Tuesday that Tyrese's recent erratic behavior (flying a banner over Shayla's school, sharing breakdown videos on social media, picking a fight with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson -- for which you'd have to be crazy!), constitutes a breach of his temporary restraining order. Related: Will Smith Denies Giving Tyrese $5 Million To Pay His Legal Bills Pointing out that a court evaluator had already referred to Tyrese as having "mental illness," she asked the court for a mental health eval. It may not be a bad idea; after all, we don't just have the safety of one child to consider for long... Tyrese was adamant he doesn't have any mental illness, just a bad reaction to medication. But while he may have changed his dosage, he hasn't taken down his website selling "Shayla Rocks" t-shirts. For real. You tell us, Perezcious readers... [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Sinead O"Connor Sparks Concern For Her Well-Being After Admitting Online That She Is Suicidal & Living In A Motel

Sinead O'Connor had friends REALLY worried at the end of last week when she took to Facebook and posted a video where she claimed she was suicidal and living in a motel in New Jersey. Oh no! Related: Selena Gomez Opens Up About Her 90-Day Break From Fame Per the Irish singer's video, Sinead explained that she has been living alone for two years and has been battling with three mental illnesses. Apparently, the Nothing Compares 2 U artist has been residing at a New Jersey-based Travelodge. (Side note: A different report claims there is no record of Sinead staying at the motel in South Hackensack, NJ.) While fighting back tears, O'Connor also called out her family for pushing her away amid her mental health struggles. The controversial A-lister noted: "Suddenly, all the people who are supposed to be loving you or taking care of you treat you like shit... If it was me, I'd be gone, straight away back to my mom." Intense stuff. Nonetheless, the 50-year-old says she hopes her video will be "somehow helpful" to the "millions of millions of millions of people who are just like [her]." She continued: "Why are we alone? People who suffer from mental illness are the most vulnerable people on Earth. You've got to take care of us. We're not like everybody.... I just want to make this video so you all could see what the fuck it's like. It's the stigma that's killing people, not the mental fucking illnesses... If you have a family member that suffers from mental illness, care for them, tenderness, love, care for them. Visit them in the hospital, don't dump them in the hospital and bugger off." Thankfully, Sinead's loved ones have since reached out to the chart topper as a pal took to her social media on Monday evening and wrote: "Hi everybody, I am posting at Sinead's request, to let everyone who loves her know she is safe, and she is not suicidal. She is surrounded by love and receiving the best of care. She asked for this to be posted knowing you are concerned for her. I won't respond to any questions, so please understand. I hope this comforts those of you were concerned." We're glad to hear that Sinead is getting the help she needs, especially since this isn't her first mental health scare in recent years. In case you forgot, back in 2016, O'Connor's son Jake Reynolds reported her as missing. The alternative rock guru was later found at a hotel and hospitalized. Our thoughts are with Sinead and her loved ones during this tough time. [Image via Facebook.].....»»

The 25-year-old entertainer spoke out while moderating a panel for upcoming film Good Time with her friends, director Josh Safdie and producer Sebastian Bear-McClard. Selena explained that she became friends with the duo after watching their film Heaven Knows What, about a woman’s overwhelming love for her boyfriend and her addiction to heroin. “A little while ago I was actually on bed rest, and it’s probably the worst time to watch Heaven Knows What or the best time, depending on your mental state. I ended up becoming extremely fascinated with the boys and kind of forced them to become my friend a little bit,” Selena explained. While later discussing the origins of some of their intense characters, Selena got candid about how she keeps a healthy state of mind. “For me, personally, I really liked the mental aspect of it, because I’ve done a lot of those exercises that you put in. So, the beginning of the movie stuck with me because I actually…I’m very open, it’s not really a secret, but I, for sure, have talked about that, and I’ve done a lot of those exercises,” Selena said......»»

New Bill Calls For Donald Trump To Get A Mental Health Evaluation Following Charlottesville Comments!

Time for a checkup, Donald Trump!

Rep. Zoe Lofgren introduced the bill on Friday, which would call on Vice President Mike Pence [...] Time for a checkup, Donald Trump! A new bill has been introduced to the House of Representatives that would require the President to undergo a physical and mental health exam to see if he's psychologically stable enough to stay in office. Rep. Zoe Lofgren introduced the bill on Friday, which would call on Vice President Mike Pence and members of the Cabinet to remove Trump from office should the results be unfavorable. In a statement announcing the bill, Lofgren questioned if the president is suffering from "early stage dementia," inquiring whether or not he is "mentally and emotionally stable" enough to lead a country. Related: Trump Administration As Game Of Thrones Characters! Lofgren, who is not a psychiatrist or psychologist, pointed out that Trump has yet to release a "serious" medical evaluation to the public. Though she doesn't expect the bill to pass, the representative for California's 19th district told Mercury News the legislature "will stimulate conversation," adding that the Kook-in-Chief should go along with the evaluation if "he cares about the country." The bill, which would invoke the 25th Amendment in allowing the VP and a majority of Cabinet members to remove the president from power, stems from Trump's widely criticized response to the Charlottesville white supremacist rally. Lofgren has already made her thought's on the matter clear, tweeting: Something is seriously wrong with President Trump. Why can't he just condemn Nazis? Unscripted words today show who he really is. Shameful! — Rep. Zoe Lofgren (@RepZoeLofgren) August 16, 2017 Other politicians have suggested booting 45 out of the White House with the 25th Amendment, which is why Lofgren is calling for Pence and other Cabinet members to "quickly secure ... medical and psychiatric professionals," to evaluate Trump's mental health. She explained: "If it was a physical ailment, you would be getting the advice of doctors. The same thing should be true to take a look at his stability here." Sounds like a great plan in theory, but this is definitely a long shot. Anyone with eyes can tell that the president is a few floors short of a Trump Tower, but his failure to condemn his strongest voting demographic may be a very sane -- even shrewd -- move. Maybe there's a diabolical evaluation we can make him take instead?.....»»

Back in November 2016, the Yeezus rapper canceled his Saint Pablo tour after he was hospitalized at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital Center for a mental breakdown. Because of his health issues, Kim Kardashian West's husband was supposed to be paid out by insurance, but never was. Fast forward to Tuesday, he's fighting back! Related: The KarJenner Exes Reunite! West's company Very Good Touring, Inc. is suing insurer Lloyd's of London for refusing to cover the contract's non-appearance fee, and wants $9.8 million plus interest. According to docs, Ye's legal team suspects Lloyd's of blaming his mental collapse on marijuana use: "Nor have they provided anything approaching a coherent explanation about why they have not paid, or any indication if they will ever pay or even make a coverage decision, implying that Kanye's use of marijuana may provide them with a basis to deny the claim and retain the hundreds of thousands of dollars in insurance premiums paid by Very Good... The stalling is emblematic of a broader modus operandi of the insurers of never-ending post-claim underwriting where the insurers hunt for some contrived excuse not to pay." Although North West's dad and his team submitted a claim to the company in November, they allegedly did everything in their power to reject coverage! "Almost immediately after the claim was submitted, Defendants selected legal counsel to oversee the adjustment of the claim, instead of the more normal approach of retaining a non-lawyer insurance adjuster... Immediately turning to legal counsel made it clear that Defendants' goal was to hunt for any ostensible excuse, no matter how fanciful, to deny coverage or to maneuver themselves into a position of trying to negotiate a discount on the loss payment."

Audiences are craving female-driven stories and nostalgia these days, so combining the two seems like a guaranteed slam dunk. But not every male-driven classic works with the opposite gender... specifically, when the entire premise of a story revolves around boys being idiots because they're boys. That's what people are frantically trying to point out after Warner Bros. announced plans to remake Lord of the Flies -- but with young girls stranded on the island instead of boys! Related: Patty Jenkins Responds To James Cameron's Wonder Woman Slam! Those who read William Golding's 1954 novel (or even Sparknoted it) say the story wouldn't make sense with all girls because it was meant to show the pitfalls of toxic masculinity. Many critics mused that instead of turning into barbaric animals, a group of stranded girls would either peacefully work together or just leave each other the fuck alone. Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that the remake will be written and directed by two men, Scott McGehee and David Siegel -- which is hardly a sign we're in for the feminist coming-of-age film of the decade. What do you think, Perezious Bookworms? Can Lord of the Flies be successfully remade with a group of girls? See what people are saying and comment (below)! An all women remake of Lord of the Flies makes no sense because... the plot of that book wouldn't happen with all women. — roxane gay (@rgay) August 31, 2017 imagine having such little interest in seeking out original stories about girlhood by women that you remake LORD OF THE FLIES with girls — JamesHurleyVEVO (@soalexgoes) August 30, 2017 An all female Lord of the Flies? Sigh. There are plenty of good original women's stories to tell. Why do we have to remake classic lit? — Proud Grandstander (@JYates_doula) August 31, 2017 like imagine missing the point of a classic book when u could've sought original stories about girlhood written by women — froy (@froynextdoor) August 31, 2017 "all-female Lord of the Flies remake" SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE MISSED THE FUUUUUCKIN POINT OF LORD OF THE FLIES — Gavia Baker-Whitelaw (@Hello_Tailor) August 30, 2017 I am all for diversity in Hollywood but.....all female Lord of the Flies is a no from me pic.twitter.com/PCrZa5pvFb — Age N. (@_BetterWithAge) August 31, 2017 The female-led Lord of the Flies wouldn't ever happen because women would just branch off into their own respective groups peacefully — rachel leishman (@RachelLeishman) August 30, 2017 All female Lord of the Flies? I thought they made that already and it was called Mean Girls. #topical pic.twitter.com/7dfaeui8EO — Bit (Neat!) Raptor (@bit_raptor) August 31, 2017 the all-girl remake of lord of the flies wont work bc realistically the girls would set aside their differences & work to get off the island — ellie (@spikejonzes) August 31, 2017 lord of the flies is about the pitfalls of masculinity. don't bring the women into this, we don't care about your ass-mar — savannah brown (@savannxhb) August 31, 2017 [Image via Sony Pictures.].....»»

Kanye West"s Tour Insurer Hints Substance Abuse Caused His Mental Breakdown In New Lawsuit!

This shit is getting messy!! ICYMI, Kanye West canceled his Saint Pablo tour in November 2016 after he was hospitalized at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital Center for a mental breakdown. Most recently, West's company Very Good Touring, Inc. sued insurer Lloyd's of London for refusing to cover the contract's non-appearance fee, and wants $9.8 million plus interest.

ICYMI, Kanye West canceled his Saint Pablo tour in November 2016 after he was hospitalized at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital Center for a mental breakdown. Most recently, West's company Very Good Touring, Inc. sued insurer Lloyd's of London for refusing to cover the contract's non-appearance fee, and wants $9.8 million plus interest. Related: Taylor's Album Reputation Drops On The 10th Anniversary Of Kanye's Mom's Death Well now, Lloyd's is clapping back with a countersuit! In court docs filed on Tuesday and obtained by People, the insurer explains they are not liable. Exclusions to the policy reportedly include preexisting physical or psychological condition, prescription drugs not taken as medically prescribed, possession of illegal drugs, and the consumption of alcohol rendering the insured unfit to "perform contracted duties." Hmm! They continued, adding: "Underwriters' investigation indicates substantial irregularities in Mr. West's medical history. Furthermore the insured's failure to cooperate in Underwriters' investigation is contrary to the duties of cooperation VGT agreed to as a condition precedent to any obligation of Underwriters to pay any claim arising under the Policies. Throughout Underwriters' investigation, VGT and its legal, medical and other agents and representatives have delayed, hindered, stalled and or refused to provide information both relevant and necessary for Underwriters to complete their investigation of the claim. Underwriters are informed and believe, and thereon these same persons have willfully concealed and or misrepresented relevant facts in an effort to thwart Underwriters' investigation." Kanye had previously stated that Lloyd's of London made him go to great lengths to prove his mental break was legit, but it seems the insurer just wants this resolved. In addition to claiming no responsibility, they want declaratory relief -- which basically means an official declaration of the status of a matter in controversy, and to not award him the payments requested! DUH! Kayne's lawyer -- Howard King -- responded via TMZ on Wednesday, saying the countersuit: "is the same generic response Lloyd's files when they don't want to honor a legitimate claim but can't find a factual basis to deny the claim." Stay tuned for more on this drama soon! [Image via WENN.].....»»
