Trump attacked this moderate Republican. His devastating response is unforgettable.

Go ahead and put this one on loop. We'll wait.

After a surprisingly close race in Ohio’s 12th congressional district last month, Republicans have been grappling with the increased likelihood that this November’s midterm elections will not go well for their party.

On Monday morning, President Trump decided to throw blame at Ohio Gov. John Kasich.


In a tweet to his followers, Trump said it was Kasich’s late endorsement that caused the race to be so close.

Kasich is normally a pretty thoughtful politician.

In fact, during the 2016 Republican presidential primary, he ended up being the last person standing against the future president, offering a moderate and even-tempered alternative to Trump's bluster.

But sometimes, you just gotta cut to the chase.

Rather than writing out an extended explanation of why Trump’s reasoning was unsound, Kasich simply chose to respond to his tweet with a GIF of Vladimir Putin smirking.

The two have feuded for years but this is next level.

Things got pretty heated between Trump and Kasich during the 2016 primary and they’ve never made up.

During Trump’s infamous summit with Putin, Kasich was quick to call out the disastrous meeting for what it was, a “sad day” for America and the world.

But in his tweet response Monday morning, Kasich was cutting through all the nuance and declaring through a simple image that in his view, Trump is little more than a joke and one that Putin is laughing at all the way to the bank.

Kasich reminds us that the best way to handle Trump is often with humor.

Responding to Trump’s policies and behaviors on a daily basis can be exhausting. Not every activist, lawmaker or citizen has the emotional bandwidth to go high when he goes low.

Sometimes, the best way to tell a story is with humor. And Kasich is telling one heck of a story in a single image. And it’s one that won’t soon be forgotten.

The fasting period of Ramadan observed by Muslims around the world is a both an individual and communal observance. For the individual, it's a time to grow closer to God through sacrifice and detachment from physical desires. For the community, it's a time to gather in joy and fellowship at sunset, breaking bread together after abstaining from food and drink since sunrise.

The COVID-19 pandemic has limited group gatherings in many countries, putting a damper on the communal part of Ramadan. But for one community in Barcelona, Spain, a different faith has stepped up to make the after sunset meal, known as Iftar, as safe as possible for the Muslim community.

According to Reuters, Father Peio Sanchez, Santa Anna's rector, has opened the doors of the Catholic church's open-air cloisters to local Muslims to use for breaking the Ramadan fast. He sees the different faiths coming together as a symbol of civic coexistence.

"I love being a nurse because I have the honor of connecting with my patients during some of their best and some of their worst days and making a difference in their lives is among the most rewarding things that I can do in my own life" - Tenesia Richards, RN

From ushering new life into the world to holding the hand of a patient as they take their last breath, nurses are everyday heroes that deserve our respect and appreciation.

To give back to this community that is always giving so selflessly to others, CeraVe® put out a call to nurses to share their stories for a chance to be featured in Heroes Behind the Masks, a digital content series shining a light on nurses who go above and beyond to provide safe and quality care to patients and their communities.

First up: Tenesia Richards, a labor and delivery nurse working in New York City who, in addition to her regular job, started a community outreach program in a homeless shelter that houses expectant mothers for up to one year postpartum.

Upon learning at a conference that black mothers in the U.S. die at three to four times the rate of white mothers, one of the widest of all racial disparities in women's health, Richards decided to take further action to help her community. She, along with a handful of fellow nurses, volunteered to provide antepartum, childbirth and postpartum education to the women living at the shelter. Additionally, they looked for other ways to boost the spirits of the residents, like throwing baby showers and bringing in guest speakers. When COVID-19 hit and in-person gatherings were no longer possible, Richards and her team found creative workarounds and created holiday care packages for the mothers instead.
