Trump Guilty

What, me worry? Donald J. Trump convicted of 34 counts of falsifying business records. He could get 136 years of slam time.  Took this during 2016 campaign.

Devastating news. @howfineman ace reporter and friend, died yesterday at 75. We covered politics together for @newsweek. I never enjoyed working with a reporter more than Howard. On top of being a great writer he was funny and had a wickedly acerbic wit. He loved this shot and told me, "You finally got me looking excited." Love & sympathy to @amynathan1 @meredithfineman & @nickfineman So sorry that Howard is gone. Such a loss. @jon.meacham @msnbc norahodonnell @joescarborough @mikabrzezinski @mikeluckovich @improvambassador @jameskencolton @marktwhitaker @petesouza @wapokp @whipplc @dklaidman @mattbai @cntrforcreativephoto @canonusa #canonusa ...

Cheers! Sorry that President George Bush isn’t here to celebrate his 100th birthday today, but plenty of people (including me) are. President Bush was a one-in-a-billion person. I first met him 50 years ago when he came in to meet with President Ford who named him the envoy to the People’ Republic of China, then head of the CIA. Among so many things he did well was being a fiercely competitive tennis player, and I know that first-hand! I made this pic of him at @fordlibrarymuseum in Grand Rapids in 1997. @bush41library @cntrforcreativephoto @davidvaldezusa @prezfotog @petesouza @yousuf_karsh_official @mikebarnicle @improvambassador @wapokp ...

Tomorrow, June 12, 2024, is former President George Bush`s 100th birthday. He was a wonderful guy whom I first met when he was 50 in 1974! When Barbara Bush realized what her husband was doing here, she said, "George, won`t you ever grow up?" To the benefit of us all, he didn`t.

I’ve been photographing @joebiden on and off since I returned from the Vietnam War in 1973. I made this of him in New Hampshire as he campaigned for president in 2020. In this image the former Vice President was talking about his son Beau who died at 46 in 2015 of brain cancer. The hurt he was feeling can be seen here. This was not acting.

In 1972, at 29 years old, Joe Biden was the sixth youngest person ever elected to the U.S. Senate, and it was a happy time in his life. But that joy was short lived. A few weeks after he was elected, Biden`s wife Neilia and their one-year-old daughter Naomi were killed when a truck hit their car. His young boys Beau and Hunter survived the accident. Today his son Hunter is in a courtroom facing a felony gun charge that was linked to his drug addiction. A father`s grief continues. As a dad of three sons, I can’t imagine his anguish.

Photography can reveal a bit of someone’s heart and soul. I believe this portrait is one of those moments. It is as pertinent today as it was when I took it. @kamalaharris @cntrforcreativephoto @schultzinit @jackimages @petesouza @mikebarnicle @improvambassador @wapokp @helenhunt @jeffreynordling @chao_time @canonusa #canonusa

Mickey Mantle Day. The Mick`s famed No. 7 was officially retired on this day 54 years ago, June 8, 1969. Thousands jammed #yankeestadium to honor the #nyyankees slugger who retired from baseball after 18 years as one of the game`s top players. I caught a pic of an exuberant fan chasing after him as he circled the stadium in a golf cart. @cntrforcreativephoto @improvambassador @jayz @adamsandler @mikebarnicle @bobmcneelyphoto @petesouza #mickeymantle ...

My colleague and friend AP photographer @ronedmondsap passed away last week at 77. He`s kneeling in this photo with (L-R) me of @time, Rich Lipski of @upi, Darryl Heikes of @usnews, and Wally McNamee of @newsweek - Darryl died in 2018 and Wally in 2017. This photo of us was made in front of a Nazi bunker in Normandy 40 years ago today on June 6, 1984 while we covering President Reagan`s trip to #normandy where he commemorated the 40th Anniversary of D-Day. Ron won the Pulitzer Prize for his photos of President Reagan being shot in 1981. Ron will be greatly missed by all of who knew and worked with him. Sincere sympathy and condolences to his wife Grace, daughter Ashley, and the rest of Ron`s family. @winmcnamee @pulitzerprizes @cntrforcreativephoto @ronedmondsap #pointeduhoc @davidburnettfoto @petesouza @nppa @pulitzerprizes ...

Today is the 80th Anniversary of D-Day. I was there to document President and Mrs. Reagan 4O years ago on this June 6th at the #NormandyAmericanCemetery set above Omaha Beach. @joebiden was there to commemorate the occasion.

In his speech facing those 9,388 graves and some surviving soldiers before him, Reagan said, “You all knew that some things are worth dying for. One’s country is worth dying for, and democracy is worth dying for, because it’s the most deeply honorable form of government ever devised by man. All of you loved liberty. All of you were willing to fight tyranny, and you knew the people of your countries were behind you.”

Would that these words make their way to the ears & hearts & souls & (guts?) of those trying to flip our democracy. @improvambassador @cntrforcreativephoto @davidburnettfoto @wapokp @petesouza @reaganlibrary40 @mikebarnicle @danabashcnn @stephenwilkes @nickkristof @j_kennerly

Fifty six years ago today, June 5, 1968, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy was gunned down by an assassin in Los Angeles. He died the next day. He was the person responsible for me choosing the path of political photography as a career. His appearance in Portland, Oregon that I covered in 1966 led this then 19-year-old newspaper photographer to pursue a career in documenting the people who started wars and stopped them. It has been all about history for me. I took this during a speech at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel just a few weeks before he was killed. @kerrykennedyrfk @cntrforcreativephoto @improvambassador @nickkennerly @j_kennerly @katiemeitayy @davidburnettfoto @bob_ahern @wapokp @bobmcneelyphoto @politico ...

Forty years ago this week I was there when President Ronald Reagan delivered a moving speech in Normandy above Omaha Beach to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the D-Day Invasion and to remember those who fought and died there. It was a great presidential moment. He talked about a small group of Rangers in particular whose survivors were seated in the audience. Reagan said, "Behind me is a memorial that symbolizes the Ranger daggers that were thrust into the top of these cliffs. And before me are the men who put them there. These are the boys of Pointe du Hoc. These are the men who took the cliffs. These are the champions who helped free a continent. These are the heroes who helped end a war . . . You all knew that some things are worth dying for. One’s country is worth dying for, and democracy is worth dying for, because it’s the most deeply honorable form of government ever devised by man. All of you loved liberty. All of you were willing to fight tyranny, and you knew the people of your countries were behind you.”
Can`t put it better than that. When I think of the rhetoric used by the previous president during his time in office and now, I cringe. When I think of the people who support those words that rail against our democracy that those gallant men fought and died to defend, I fear for the Republic. Ronald Reagan would be horrified. @cntrforcreativephoto @reaganlibrary40 @mikebarnicle @petesouza @improvambassador @nickkennerly @j_kennerly @wapokp @barackobama

Ten years ago today, June 1, 2014. Raghad, a 10-year-old Syrian refugee girl in Za’ahari Camp in Jordan near the Syrian border. What a ray of sunshine in a difficult place. At one point there were more than 150,000 refugees there. The camp, run by the UN, is now permanent, and is the largest Syrian refugee camp in the world. (In Arabic “Raghad” means pleasant, a carefree person). @j_kennerly @cntrforcreativephoto @improvambassador @nickkennerly @katiemeitayy @unhcrjordan #unhcrjordan @wapokp @bob_ahern @scottwisemanphoto @utnicky @jess_chappe ...

Turned up these little gems in my archive that I shot during Judge Samuel Alito`s Senate Judiciary hearing to become a Supreme Court Justice on January 11, 2006. Sen. Ted Kennedy, who was on the committee, said in his diary, that Supreme Court nominee Alito told him in private before the hearings that he respected Roe v. Wade and that he believed a right to privacy was "settled" law. Alito said, "I am a believer in precedents," according to what Kennedy wrote, "`People would find I adhere to that." Kennedy didn’t believe him and gave an extraordinary speech on the Senate floor before the vote warning of the dangers of Alito’s extreme ideology. The senator said, “If you are concerned about women’s privacy rights . . . it’s not Judge Alito . . .” Not surprisingly, Kennedy voted against Alito. @cntrforcreativephoto @mikebarnicle @improvambassador @wapokp @petesouza @whipplc @kerrykennedyrfk ...
