"When ignorance and bigotry is allied with power, it is a dangerous force in our country. Your silence and your amnesia is complicity," said Senator @corybooker as he criticized the Homeland Security secretary for saying she can't recall President Donald #Trump using a certain vulgarity to describe African countries.
.
DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday that she couldn't remember the president using the word ascribed to him.
.
#CoryBooker said the words attributed to Trump cast a shadow over millions of Americans from those countries. He said the president's language can fester and give license to bigotry and hate in the country.

A man is arrested during a protest against Pope Francis in #Santiago, #Chile, on Tuesday. The pontiff is on a three-day visit to the country, where the Vatican's handling of sex abuse cases has fueled bitter criticism.
.
#PopeFrancis begged for forgiveness Tuesday for the "irreparable damage" done to children who were raped and molested by priests, opening his visit by diving head-first into a scandal that has greatly hurt the Catholic Church's credibility here and cast a cloud over his visit.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction." — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
.
Born on Jan. 15, 1929, King's message of #nonviolence still resonates and inspires.
.
During the #civilrights movement, King directly confronted and exposed the ills of #racism, and led a movement that pressured the American government to end legalized #segregation. He spent the last year of his life condemning what he called the "triple evils" of racism, poverty and war.
.
King was assassinated April 4, 1968.

The death toll at the scene of devastating #mudslides in a Southern #California community rose to 20 Sunday as the list of those still missing shrunk to four.

Recovery crews continue to slowly make progress digging away masses of mud, boulders and toppled trees in coastal Montecito. Officials said they've removed enough debris from creek canals to prevent another potential disaster when the next rainstorm hits.

Meet the missileers: 247 women are trained by the #AirForce to help control the U.S. nuclear arsenal. Their shifts can be grueling. #Missileers stay underground for 24 hours at a time, with only each other to talk to. There's no fresh air. The light is artificial. The protocol they've memorized is extensive. At any moment, the call could come down.
.
Two people are required to launch a missile once an encrypted nuclear code from the White House is received. “Two-Person Control” ensures that one individual can’t launch a missile on her own.

President Donald Trump shakes hands with #WhiteHouse physician Dr. Ronny Jackson after getting his first medical checkup as president at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in #Bethesda, Maryland on Friday.
.
What has been a fairly routine exam for previous officeholders has taken on outsized importance in the age of #Trump, given the tone of some of his tweets, comments attributed to some of his close advisers and Trump's recent slurring of words on national TV.
.
Trump himself has pushed back hard against any suggestion that he's mentally unfit, declaring himself "a very stable genius."

A street vendors sells items in Cite Soleil, an extremely impoverished and densely populated slum in #PortauPrince, Haiti at the end of December. Friday marks eight years since a devastating earthquake on Jan. 12, 2010 left thousands of Haitians homeless and without basic resources.

President Donald Trump on Friday appeared to deny he insulted #Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries” but admitted he used “tough” language during a discussion about an immigration deal with lawmakers.
.
On Thursday, Trump used vulgar language during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House, a Democratic aide briefed on the meeting told NBC News. When they were talking about Haiti, Trump questioned why Haitians should be given specific consideration, two sources briefed on the conversation said.
