[WATCH] The Daily Shows digs up old Trump speech urging folk to climb over walls
70 days ago
The president of the United States, Donald Trump has been very clear about building a wall across the southern border between the US and Mexico, hoping the wall will help keep undocumented immigrants from entering the country.
However, in a speech back in 2004, Trump was preaching a very different story. Ironically he told students in his address "If there is a concrete wall in front of you, go over it."
Elsewhere, on What's Gone Viral with Khabazela, a politician vomits while trying to raise awareness about dying fish.
The stench of rotting fish caused me to involuntarily retch
I couldn't finish this video because I was involuntarily retching from the smell. It was one of the most disgusting experiences of my life. I felt so sick that I panicked and jumped in the river to escape it - as bad as it is! The overwhelming stench from millions of dead fish floating in the Darling River at Menindee is grotesque. I visited yesterday to see what decades of mismanagement and corruption have resulted in - an ecological catastrophe. Magnificent Murray Cod and other fish have been killed by a blue-green algae event. A lack of water in the Darlin River and the Menindee Lakes means that authorities were unable to flush the system before millions of fish suffocated through a lack of oxygen in water. Where is all the water? Well too much cotton irrigation upstream in NSW and Queensland is taking too much water out of the river. Small and medium flows are sucked dry and only big floods ever get downstream. Governments have also emptied the Menindee Lakes system rapidly, rather than leave water in reserve for dry times. This mass fish kill should be a wake up call for Australia. For too long, politicians have shifted blame from one another and pretended they can fix the policy without the fundamental issue of returning more water to our natural waterways and wetlands. We've spent decades and $13 billion only to end up with ecological tragedy in our rivers.Posted by Jeremy Buckingham on Wednesday, 9 January 2019
Something else that has gone viral is that Stirling University has discovered a treasure containing sports equipment, a bottle of whisky from 1969 and photographs during a £20 million renovation of its sports pavilion.
