Very recently President Donald Trump met with the state and local officials on school safety at the White House and he has shared his thoughts on the recent violent culture that is emerging. According to him, the Violence in the Video Games and films are shaping the minds of young people. If you remember the tragic incident that took place on 14th Feb 2018 in a Florida High School where a former expelled student unleashed a storm of bullets killing at least 17 adults and children in the process. To that the Kentucky Governor, Matt Bevin, in an interview said something similar to what President Trump has said. The Governor also blamed the violence in video games to be responsible for the real-life Violence. While the White House talks about video games to be blamed for real-life violence the survivors of the Florida Shooting are taking steps to gain national advocation for the gun control legislation. In an interview conducted by CNN a 19 years old student at the school Chris … [Read more...] about President Trump Holds Violent Video Games Responsible For Real Life Violence
President Trump, weighing in on the ongoing conversation about gun violence in America, suggested laying the blame partly at the feet of pop culture today, citing violent movies and video games as possible causes of the problem. “We have to do something about maybe what they’re seeing and how they’re seeing it, and also, video games,” said Trump, speaking during a discussion on school safety at the White House. “I’m hearing more and more people say the level of violence on video games is really shaping young people’s thoughts.” The president is not the only politician, especially on the Republican side, to bring out this old chestnut following last week’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in which 14 students and three staff members were killed. Within two days of the shooting, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin had given multiple interviews in which he pointed to violent video games as a factor in … [Read more...] about Trump shifts blame to violent video games, movies in gun violence discussion
A growing number of Democrats are boycotting Tuesday’s State of the Union address, underscoring the depth of disdain the Democratic lawmakers hold for President Trump. Only two Democrats — Reps. Maxine Waters (Calif.) and Al Green (Texas) — skipped Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress last year, though more than 60 Democrats boycotted Trump’s inauguration. This year, boycotts appear to be spiking. Here’s a running tally of those skipping the address. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (Ore.) Blumenauer was the first Democrat to announce he would boycott this year’s State of the Union. “Rather than listening to yet another destructive and divisive speech by Trump, I will not attend this year’s annual address to Congress,” Blumenauer said in a statement on Jan. 5. “Instead, like I did during Trump’s Inauguration, I will be working here at home listening to Oregonians about what they think about the State of the … [Read more...] about The Hill’s List of Democrats boycotting Trump’s SOTU.
The Entertainment Software Association has issued a statement in response to what the New York Times reports as President Trump’s description of Haiti and some African nations as “shithole countries.” The ESA, which sees itself as the voice of the US video game industry and counts many major game companies among its members, rebuked the President’s comments via Twitter, stating that the language used was ‘repulsive’ and undermines the fundamental values of the United States. This isn’t the first time the ESA has spoken up in response to decisions or comments made by the current United States leadership. The organization notably (and to the dismay of some developers) voiced its support for the GOP’s tax reform plan before it was signed into law late last year. Before that, the Association warned the White House to “express caution” with last year’s selective travel ban, cautioning that the plan could have a negative … [Read more...] about ESA rebukes U.S. President’s ‘shithole countries’ comment
