Eric Trump tweets-and-deletes attempted Obama burn.

The spawn of Donald Trump have certainly proven themselves to be the children of Donald Trump this week, with each of the Holy Trinity (Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric) doing something embarrassing and/or dangerous.

Ivanka Trump kicked off her presidential campaign by pretending to be a world leader, hopping into photo ops with heads of state and trying her damnedest to contribute to the conversation. The now-iconic Unwanted Ivanka meme was born.

Donald Trump Jr. shared a racist tweet about Senator Kamala Harris, jumping into birtherism's female reboot.

Eric Trump, who Saturday Night Live portrays as "the dumb one" in a family of dumb ones, tweeted an attempted burn at former President Barack Obama that ended up just being a massive self-own.


My dude tweeted-and-deleted a photo he claimed showed Obama at the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea in 2008. If you recall what the world was like just eleven years ago, George W. Bush was the president, and Obama was a mere senator from Illinois.


The photo was taken in 2012, when Barack Obama, the guy with "Commander in Chief" written on his jacket, was indeed a the commander in chief.

Plus, maybe not offering a dictator a propaganda photoshoot for free was a good thing?


It was also unclear what Eric is trying to say that his father accomplished, other than getting Kim Jong Un to smile. He'd be so pretty if he smiled more.


He fixed the post with a fact-check, but it got burned as well.


Eric is on board with Bromance Diplomacy, but other Americans would rather not see the president become BFFs with a guy who tortured an American student to death and fed his own uncle to dogs, Ramsay Bolton-style.


It's okay, buddy. We can't all be experts in history and diplomacy like Ivanka.

Inside the walls of her kitchen at her childhood home in Guatemala, Evelyn Klohr, the founder of a Washington, D.C.-area bakery called Kakeshionista, was taught a lesson that remains central to her business operations today.

"Baking cakes gave me the confidence to believe in my own brand and now I put my heart into giving my customers something they'll enjoy eating," Klohr said.

While driven to launch her own baking business, pursuing a dream in the culinary arts was economically challenging for Klohr. In the United States, culinary schools can open doors to future careers, but the cost of entry can be upwards of $36,000 a year.

Through a friend, Klohr learned about La Cocina VA, a nonprofit dedicated to providing job training and entrepreneurship development services at a training facility in the Washington, D.C-area.

La Cocina VA's, which translates to "the kitchen" in Spanish, offers its Bilingual Culinary Training program to prepare low-and moderate-income individuals from diverse backgrounds to launch careers in the food industry.

That program gave Klohr the ability to fully immerse herself in the baking industry within a professional kitchen facility and receive training in an array of subjects including culinary skills, food safety, career development and English language classes.

Photographer Katie Joy Crawford had been battling anxiety for 10 years when she decided to face it straight on by turning the camera lens on herself.

In 2015, Upworthy shared Crawford's self-portraits and our readers responded with tons of empathy. One person said, "What a wonderful way to express what words cannot." Another reader added, "I think she hit the nail right on the head. It's like a constant battle with yourself. I often feel my emotions battling each other."

So we wanted to go back and talk to the photographer directly about this soul-baring project.

When a pet is admitted to a shelter it can be a traumatizing experience. Many are afraid of their new surroundings and are far from comfortable showing off their unique personalities. The problem is that's when many of them have their photos taken to appear in online searches.

Chewy, the pet retailer who has dedicated themselves to supporting shelters and rescues throughout the country, recognized the important work of a couple in Tampa, FL who have been taking professional photos of shelter pets to help get them adopted.

"If it's a photo of a scared animal, most people, subconsciously or even consciously, are going to skip over it," pet photographer Adam Goldberg says. "They can't visualize that dog in their home."

Adam realized the importance of quality shelter photos while working as a social media specialist for the Humane Society of Broward County in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

"The photos were taken top-down so you couldn't see the size of the pet, and the flash would create these red eyes," he recalls. "Sometimes [volunteers] would shoot the photos through the chain-link fences."

That's why Adam and his wife, Mary, have spent much of their free time over the past five years photographing over 1,200 shelter animals to show off their unique personalities to potential adoptive families. The Goldbergs' wonderful work was recently profiled by Chewy in the video above entitled, "A Day in the Life of a Shelter Pet Photographer."
