U.S. State Dept. hosts 'Family Travel Hacks' Facebook Live as if that's a totally fine thing to do right now

U.S. State Dept. hosts 'Family Travel Hacks' Facebook Live as if that's a totally fine thing to do right nowIn times of crisis, one would hope the U.S. Department of State would know how to respond accordingly. Sadly, not this time. On Tuesday, rather than showing any compassion for the nearly 2,000 children who have been separated from their parents at the border due to the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy, the State Department decided to hold a fun Facebook Live. The almost 50-minute-long “Family Travel Hacks” Q&A encouraged people to ask about “applying for U.S. passports for kids, document requirements, and tips to make sure your vacation this summer goes smoothly.” Though, predictably, many used the opportunity to share their upset at the fact that families are being separated at the border.

Here are just some of the many comments from angry and appalled people watching the live stream, wondering how the U.S. State Department could be so upbeat and tone deaf at a time like this. Needless to say, people were NOT pleased with the timing of this Facebook Live.  If you too, are tired of the lack of action being taken to to help families at the border, check out our guide on how to help.

Buyers travel thousands of miles to pick up first batch of Elon Musk's flamethrowersThe first batch of flamethrowers sold by Elon Musk’s tunnel construction business The Boring Company have been handed out to customers – with some people traveling thousands of miles to pick one up. The Tesla entrepreneur had suggested the idea of selling a flamethrower at the end of 2017, with the project aiming to raise $10m for The Boring Company, which was founded with the intention of building a network of tunnels to help reduce traffic congestion across the US. Mr Musk claimed that the company had sold 20,000 of the $500 in four days in during January this year, with the first flamethrowers handed out at Boring’s Hawthorne, California offices over the weekend.
