By Bobby M.

In case you missed any of the news over Christmas weekend, here is a brief recap regarding much of what happened. Not everything will have a hyperlink, so if you would like more information, please highlight and google it.

The biggest news of the weekend involved Trump officially claiming he is Putin’s lapdog when he publicized a letter from him. This came just days after the both of them used the news to discuss how the two of them want to increase nuclear weapon proliferation. More big news involved yet another musical icon dying in 2016, George Michael has died at the age of fifty-three. Our world in music also lost Leonard Cohen, Merle Haggard, Prince, and David Bowie this year. And the final major headline of the weekend was the United Nations voting to condemn Israeli settlement plans in Palestinian lands. The resolution was sponsored by New Zealand, Malaysia, Senegal, and Venezuela and voted yes on by 15 members of the UN Security Council, but Obama got the blame for it because he had the United States abstain from voting due to his administration’s view that these settlements hurt the chance of peace in the Middle East. The rest of what is listed below may have been harder to hear about…
