Published

It seems like airports have become one of the prime locations for beautiful moments between strangers captured on video that go viral.

Whether it’s singing or dancing at the gate or comforting a nervous mama flying solo, it seems that while air travel can often bring out the worst in people, it strangely seems to bring out the best in others.

But this latest airport-moment-gone-viral video is just too much.

They decided to let her toddle around for a bit, where she promptly made friends with a middle-aged businessman and spent 45 minutes eating snacks and watching cartoons with him.

“I just put her down, let her walk and followed behind her but I was anxious about her touching people’s stuff and not everyone wants a kid slamming into their knees,” Armentrout told “GMA,” according to Yahoo News. “But as she approached him, he said, ‘You want to sit next to me?'”

The stranger, Joseph Wright, said he saw Carter walking around and asked if she wanted to take a seat next to him. She obliged and the two struck up a conversation about Snoopy.

“It just warmed my heart a little,” he told “GMA.” “[She] just wanted to share her food with somebody, you know? That was very touching, and it was just fascinating to see. I get a kick out of young kids who are just growing and showing love.”

In a Facebook post that’s since been shared 65,000 times, Armentrout wrote: “Watching them in that moment, I couldn’t help but think, different genders, different races, different generations, and the best of friends. This is the world I want for her.

In a country that is continuously fed that it’s so deeply divided by beliefs, I want her life to be filled with moments like this… not liberal or conservative republican or democrat, socialist or capitalist, just HUMAN.”

“People just come up and talk to him all the time,” Wright’s wife, Sheila, told “GMA.” “But when it started going viral. I was just like, ‘Wow.’ It was surreal. I really kind of — I couldn’t believe it.”

One of the most wonderful things about small children is that they remind us how easy it is to make friends, something we lose the sense of as we get older and more guarded towards strangers.

There’s always room to be a little more friendly and a little more kind in this cold-hearted world.

Save conservative media!

Yovanovitch Testifies In Impeachment Hearing Of Being ‘Kneecapped;’ Trump Says Everywhere She Worked ‘Turned Bad’

Published

Former ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch decided to do a little bit of finger pointing during her testimony during Friday’s impeachment hearings, targeting Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and discussing her sudden removal from her diplomatic post. President Trump returned fire and stated that every place Yovanovitch worked “turned bad.” Check out the details from Fox News: During her appearance, Yovanovitch, a career diplomat who served both Republican and Democratic presidents, relayed her story of being suddenly recalled by Trump in May, saying she believes Giuliani played a key role in telling people she was not sufficiently supportive of the president. “I do not understand Mr. Giuliani’s motives for attacking me, nor can I offer an opinion on whether he believed the allegations he spread about me,” Yovanovitch said. “If our chief representative is kneecapped, it limits our effectiveness to safeguard the vital national security interests of the United States,” Yovanovitch said. After the hearing started, Trump began attacking her, tweeting, “Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad.” He added, “It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1195356198347956224 As the impeachment hearing kicked off on Friday, the White House released a new transcript of the president’s initial phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The transcript showed the president agreeing to meet with Zelensky — without any sort of preconditions — in the first official phone call between the two world leaders. Devin Nunes, ranking member of the Intelligence Committee read the whole letter during his opening statement. A separate call that happened between Trump and Zelensky is what started the impeachment inquiry, and the GOP is saying this new transcript helps solidify Trump’s argument that he didn’t do anything wrong in his conversation with the Ukrainian president-elect. Yovanovitch’s removal from her post as the ambassador to Ukraine is…

Planned Parenthood Puts On Pole-Dancing Fundraiser For All-Ages, All-Genders; Includes ‘Pleasure Education’

Published

on

Planned Parenthood’s Northwest and Hawaii political action group is putting on an event entitled “Femme Fest” in Olympia, Washington, which is being offered and opened to “all genders and ages,” which will feature “clitoris and pleasure education” workshops and a “Wicked Sexy Pole Dance Showcase.” Here’s more on the event from TheBlaze: “Join Pilates at Play and Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest & Hawaii as we celebrate our sexuality and enjoy an irreverently playful night of fundraising, fitness, sex talk, and exotic pole dance performances,” an announcement for the event reads on Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s website. The fundraiser comes after a recent school board vote in the nearby Battle Ground school district to scrap a comprehensive sex education curriculum that many feared promoted an LGBTQ+ agenda. In fact, the board not only suspended its use of the specific sex education curriculum under fire, known as FLASH, but eliminated the requirements for the district to teach sex education in general, unless required by the state. Presently, Washington law only requires that school districts teach about HIV and AIDS prevention. Planned Parenthood’s event will also have an educational portion comprised of sessions designed to teach attendees about making sex education something that’s mandatory in the state of Washington. Information about how to pleasure the “clitoris” will also be made available. Here’s a glimpse at the whole schedule: 4 – 5 p.m.: Pilates and Barre Class Sampler 5 – 5:30 p.m.: Sexy Floor Work Lesson 5:30 – 6 p.m.: The Art of Feminine Sensual Movement 6 – 6:30 p.m.: Clitoris and Pleasure Education with Planned Parenthood 6:30 – 7 p.m.: Sex Ed in Washington State Informational with Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest and Hawaii 7- 9 p.m. Wicked Sexy Pole Dance Showcase presented by Pole at Play LifeSiteNews reported that this isn’t the first…
