South Africa's Gordhan ordered home from London ahead of Gupta court case
Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan is set to return to South Africa early on Tuesday after being ordered home from London by President Jacob Zuma, hours before a court hearing over the closure of accounts belonging to friends of the president. Zuma's order on Monday that Gordhan return "immediately" from a roadshow for investors in Britain and the United States has revived talk of a cabinet reshuffle and unnerved investors who see Gordhan as an emblem of stability. In December, Gordhan asked the High Court to rule he was not allowed to interfere with decisions by South Africa's major banks to close business accounts of Oakbay Investments, owned by brothers Ajay, Atul and Rajesh Gupta and with interests stretching from technology to media to mining.
Angry Sean Spicer tells April Ryan, a veteran black female journalist, to "stop shaking" her head
It'd be nice if, for once, Sean Spicer could make it through a press conference without crushing one of the country's core values. Unfortunately, that day was not today. During Tuesday's press conference, the Press Secretary became incensed that April Ryan, the Washington Bureau Chief for American Urban Radio Networks, was shaking her head at an answer he gave. And, for some reason (likely a terrible one), Spicer decided to comment on it. SEE ALSO: Interview: Maxine Waters thinks millennials can change politics for everyone (yes, everyone) "Which is the President ? I'm sorry, please stop shaking your head again," Spicer said to Ryan. This isn't the first time Ryan has been targeted by a member of the Trump administration, each time with vaguely racist and sexist overtones. In February, President Trump asked April Ryan to help him set up a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus, even though she: 1. Isn't a member of Congress; 2. isn't his secretary; 3. didn't know what he was talking about. Earlier in this depressing day, a Fox News commentator told viewers he couldn't listen to Congresswoman Maxine Waters because of her "James Brown wig." Waters is the most senior black woman in Congress and one of the Trump's administration's chief critics. Twitter quickly spoke up in horror. Bill and Sean are showing the world how Black Women get talked about and treated everyday. Take notice-and do something. ? Brittany Packnett (@MsPackyetti) March 28, 2017 Maxine Waters & April Ryan. Today seems to be the day for Republicans to insult black women. ? Jeet Heer (@HeerJeet) March 28, 2017 Never have I seen so blatant misogyny and condescending. "April Ryan" It's time for Spicy to go. We are with you April Ryan ?
