Donald Trump Claims Victory Over Obama

Donald Trump on Wednesday claimed victory after President Barack Obama released his birth certificate and explained the details of his birth. Trump said he is very proud of himself, while Obama reminded the citizens of America that they should not be distracted by the “silliness” of the issue.

Just a few minutes after Obama addressed America regarding concerns about where he was born, the main impresario of the “carnival” Donald Trump claimed his victory.

He said shortly after he landed by helicopter in New Hampshire that he has accomplished something really huge and hopes that people will see the big role he played in getting rid of the long-standing issue.

However, Trump is not abandoning his cause of insinuating gloomy issues regarding the president. Reports say that Trump told reporters that he heard rumors that the president was not a very bright student and he does not deserve his Ivy League education. Now, Trump is challenging the president to show his college transcripts.

People are already noticing Trump’s seemingly attention-grabbing issues directed to the White House and on the president in general. More intriguing is the business tycoon’s sudden interest in politics. Few weeks ago, issues about the authenticity of his birth certificate were released.

Still, Trump said that he will soon make a decision on whether or not he will join the ticket for Republican nomination in June. Political analysts frown on the idea of considering Trump as an actual candidate. They also think that Trump’s move is very “schoolyard stuff.”

Celtics Won Over Knicks in Their First Game

For 47 minutes New York Knicks were on the edge of vindication, Sunday Night. However, with 11.4 seconds left on the clock, Ray Allen of Boston Celtics hit a 3-point shot and drove his team to victory, 87-85.

After Allen shot the 3-pointer, Knicks hurriedly went down their side of the court to claim what they lost. Carmelo Anthony, however, missed his supposed game-winning 3 point shot. Anthony is the superstar Knicks got after a trade in February.

The Knicks had a strong start in the first game of the Eastern Conference playoffs. They even had a 12-point lead over Celtics at one point during the game. Knicks dominated the Celtics; Amar’e Stoudemire was even able to carve through the usually solid defense techniques of the Celtics. However, Allen’s 3-point shot did wonders for his team.

The last few minutes of the game kept viewers at the edge of their seats. With 37.8 seconds left on the clock, Toney Douglas hit a 3-pointer placing them on a 3-point lead over Celtics at 85-82. Rajon Rondo, Celtics point guard, inbounded an alley-oop to Garnett for a dunk which made them only one point away from a tied score with Knicks. Allen led the team with a 3-point shoot with only 11 minutes left.

With no remaining timeouts, Anthony tried to redeem their team but missed what could have been their winning shot.

Knicks’ coach D’Antoni said that they will make big plays during the rest of the playoffs. Anthony also said that the team did great on most parts of the game so he is still excited about the series.

Student Shot by Another Teenager at Indiana Middle School

Middle School ShotingA former student of West Middle School at Martinsville, Indiana shot another student twice on the stomach around 7:00 Friday morning. The suspect was taken into custody just an hour after the shooting took place. Assistant Superintendent Randy Taylor said that the shooter was no longer a student in that school and should have not been inside school premises.

The 15 year-old boy who was shot, Chance Jackson, was immediately flown to the hospital following the incident. His exact condition was vague until his family released a statement saying that the boy is already out of surgery and his vital signs are stable. The family further said that they appreciate all the kind words and they pleaded that people continue to pray for their son and all the others who were involved.

The person suspected to have been the shooter, Michael Phelps, is also the same age as Jackson – 15 years old. He was kicked out from school after threatening to burn down the entire building. The shooting is said to have been rooted from an argument in a school dance a few days prior to the incident.

Phelps just moved in a trailer park and is the youngest among four children of a single parent. Some say he is a nice boy and no one would have predicted this to happen; his facebook page though, says otherwise. There were statements hinting to the shooting such as “Today is the day”, posted a few minutes before he allegedly shot Chance Jackson.
