Fusfoo Five: Politics (Pineapple Pizza, NSA Head, Dreamers)


As America experiences its most explosive political climate in decades, filled with vitriolic debates on immigration, sexism and racism, Iceland’s leader has ignited a unique national debate: pizza toppings. During the Q&A portion of an interview at a North Iceland High School, President Guðni Th. Jóhannesson was asked for his thoughts on pineapple as a pizza topping. Jóhannesson’s response was a decisive no, and to leave no room for misinterpretation, he added that if given the power to single-handedly pass laws, he would ban the topping nationwide. On Twitter, pizza companies and restaurants spoke up in lighthearted defense of the topping, some consumers expressed their love for the dish, others, their disdain, though all seemed to express relief that at least one world leader still has room for joviality.

Army Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster has accepted President Donald Trump’s appointment to the position of national security adviser. In accepting the post, he replaces Trump’s former NSA adviser Mike Flynn, who recently resigned after admitting he lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his communications with the Russian government. McMaster’s appointment comes as a surprise to many, given that he and Trump fundamentally disagree on a number of high-profile issues, including Russian relations, counterterrorism tactics and overall military build. McMaster will however have many prominent friends and military allies around him, such as Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Marine General Joseph Dunford, and war hero Senator John McCain, who serves as chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Nearly one month after President Trump signed an executive order greenlighting the controversial Dakota Access pipeline, mandatory evacuations have cleared many protestors from the pipeline site. The evacuations were not only a result of the order, but also the weather—the Army Corps is rushing to clean up the construction zone before a nearby river thaws and floods the area. While some protestors have chosen to move to the higher, drier grounds of the Standing Rock reservation, others refuse to budge, despite the threat of flooding. As the river melt looms, it appears law enforcement may be required to forcefully move the remaining few. North Dakota’s Morton County Commission Chairman Cody Schulz has expressed concern regarding potential conflicts, adding, “there's the fear I think from law enforcement that maybe some of that hope may be diminishing and desperation sometimes can set in."

Embattled Brietbart News Editor and alt-right champion Milo Yiannopoulos has stepped down from his position after controversial comments he made regarding pedophilia leaked to social media. The comments were made during a live-streamed 2016 interview, during which Yiannopoulos said, "we get hung up on this kind of child abuse stuff, this arbitrary and oppressive idea of consent." On Monday, Yiannopoulos attempted to defend his comments as misread, blaming "sloppy phrasing" and "deceptive" video editing. During his resignation press conference on Tuesday, Yiannopoulos changed his tone, explaining, "I do not believe any change in the legal age of consent is justifiable or desirable. I said some things on those Internet live streams that were simply wrong.” Yiannopoulos’ comments have also cost him a Simon & Schuster book deal and a headline speaking engagement at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Though President Donald Trump has declared nearly all illegal immigrants as targets for deportation, when it comes to “dreamers”, a term for immigrants who were brought to the US illegally as children, his stance softens. In 2012, an executive order issued by former President Barack Obama established deportation protection for the nation’s estimated 750,000 “dreamers”. Trump has decided to leave this order in place—for now. This was confirmed on Tuesday, as the Department of Homeland Security issued its full guidelines to immigration agents. These guidelines are a component of Trump’s overall security and immigration enforcement plan, as initiated by executive order last month. One of Trump’s primary campaign pledges was to crack down on the approximately 11 million illegal immigrants living and working in America, and to build a massive wall at the with Mexico/US border, which he insisted Mexico would pay for.
