00:08-01:41 June 1 marks the beginning of the eighth annual Immigrant Heritage Month (IHM), a nationwide effort throughout June to gather and share and celebrate the inspirational stories of immigrants in America. The White House released a proclamation from President Biden today, declaring June National Immigrant Heritage Month, stating, “Across each generation throughout our history, wave after wave of immigrants have enriched our Nation and made us better, stronger, more innovative, and more prosperous…”
01:42-04:31 Pride Month is celebrated every June as a tribute to those who were involved in the Stonewall Riots. On June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay club in New York City’s Greenwich Village, which resulted in bar patrons, staff, and neighborhood residents rioting onto Christopher Street outside. The movement continued over six days, with protestors demanding the establishment of places where LGBTQ+ people could go and be open about their sexual orientation without fear of arrest.
04:32-05:32 President Biden’s immigration policy changes were outlined recently in a budget request that would eliminate border-wall funding, boost spending on care for unaccompanied migrant children to $3.3 billion and overhaul the way asylum seekers are handled at the Mexican border by dramatically increasing staffing to process their claims.
05:33-07:22 Former national security adviser Michael Flynn said over Memorial Day weekend that a Myanmar-like coup — in which the military overthrew a democratically elected government — “should happen” in the U.S. Appearing in Dallas at a QAnon conference, Flynn was asked during a Q&A session that was shared in a Twitter video: “I want to know why what happened in Myanmar can’t happen here?”
07:23-09:09 According to a CNN review of court documents and Pentagon records, one in 10 people charged in the US Capitol insurrection are veterans or current servicemembers. At least 45 of the approximately 450 overall defendants have ties to the US military. Many of the 45 defendants are veterans, but some are still serving, including an active duty Marine Corps officer from Virginia who was arrested earlier this month.
09:10-11:54 According to data from Johns Hopkins University, the U.S. has more than 33.2 million confirmed coronavirus cases and 594,500 deaths. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, head of the World Health Organization, warned that the coronavirus is “deepening divergence in economic fortunes, and there will be negative consequences for all.”
Tuesday Tea Time With Brad
11:55-26:41 Tennis pro-Naomi Osaka has announced she’s withdrawing from the French Open, less than a week after she said she would not speak to the press during the tournament for the sake of her mental health.
26:42-30:07 Kim Kardashian revealed she didn’t pass the “baby bar” on her first try and suggested to her sisters she’s reconsidering continuing her journey to becoming a lawyer. In a clip of a recent episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”, Kim explained the test, saying: “If you are doing law school the way I’m doing it, it is a four-year program instead of your typical three-year program and after year one, you have to take the baby bar. This one actually is harder, I hear, than the official bar.”
30:08-36:31 Celebrity fitness guru Jillian Michaels isn’t backing down from a viral clip from a January 2020 appearance on BuzzFeed’s “AM to DM.” The former “Biggest Loser” coach said of Lizzo during the interview, “Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? Cause it isn’t gonna be awesome if she gets diabetes.”
