Good morning Her Campus! With a break-neck news cycle, there is no possible way for you to stay on top of every story that comes across your feeds — we’re all only human, after all. 

But, life comes at you fast. So grab a cup of coffee and settle in for this quick and dirty guide to stories you might’ve been sleeping on (like, literally. It’s early.) 

People Pissed At Trump For Tweeting About The World Series Hours After Synagogue Shooting 

Just hours after the mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, President Trump tweeted about the World Series. The tweet received both criticism and support as people reacted throughout the night. 

“Watching the Dodgers/Red Sox final innings,” Trump tweeted. “It is amazing how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through almost 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever(s) who get shellacked. 4 run lead gone. Managers do it all the time, big mistake!”

Many were bother by the tweets timing. 

“Is this even real?” tweeted Joan Walsh, who is a CNN political contributor. “[Eleven] Americans were murdered in a hate crime today.” 

“What is wrong with you?” journalist Wajahat Ali tweeted. “There was a shooting at a synagogue today. 11 people were killed. Earlier this week, there was mass assassination attempt by a proud MAGA supporter. Also, a man shot and killed two black people in Kentucky and said, ‘whites don’t shoot whites.’” 

California Rep. Ted Lieu criticized the president in a tweet asking in a retweet, “Is tonight when @realDonaldTrump became our President? Or was it when he said ‘there are some very fine people on both sides’ at the white nationalist mob recent in Charlottesville? Or when he tweeted CNN getting body slammed? Or when he sabotaged healthcare?” 

Some didn’t find his tweet to be offensive though. Sports blogger Dan Clark said, “Why are people going ape sh*t over @realDonaldTrump tweeting about the #WorldSeries?” He continued to tweet, “Surely the President of the United States has the right to relax on a Saturday night and watch America’s favorite pastime like any other citizen. Regardless of his baseball opinions, fair’s fair.”

After the gunman was taken into custody, Trump told reporters that it had nothing to do with gun laws and more to do with a lack of armed guards. 

Simone Biles Soared At The World Artistic Gymnastics Championship Despite Being In the Hospital The Night Before 

Simone Biles got the highest scores for three events at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Qatar on Saturday, even after she was just in the hospital with a kidney stone. 

She got the highest individual scores on beam, vault, and floor, and then placed second on the uneven bars. Her performance ensured that team USA will qualify for the team final round, and they currently have a 12-point lead in front of Japan. 

The reigning Olympic champion tweeted on Friday that she had to go to the emergency room. The doctors took a CT scan that showed a kidney stone. 

“We had to go to the ER, because I’ve been having stomach pains on my right side for two days,” Biles said in a video posted by USA Gymnastics

“We started to think it was my appendix, so we wanted to go as a precaution. We got tests done, and they found a kidney stone. I’m in a bit of pain [today], so adrenaline helps.” 

“We were pretty good. We tried to stay focused just like in practice, because practices have been going really well. Hopefully we’ll go out there and kill it again.”

Biles plans to have stone, which is nicknamed "the Doha pearl, removed after the competition, according to Buzzfeed News.

Honestly, she is such a champ!

The Dynamic Prince Duo to….Separate?

There are some big changes ahead for the royal family.

Royal correspondent for The Sunday Times Roya Nikkhah spilled the tea on some exclusive details about Prince Harry and Prince William’s roles within the royal family. According to Nikkhah, “the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex are preparing to go their separate ways. William and Harry considering plans to split the Kensington Palace household and create two separate courts as their future roles with Kate and Meghan diverge.”

This is some major news for all of us who love the how close the royal brothers are.

“The brothers have leant on each other and looked after each other since their mother died,” the royal source told The Sunday Times. “But now they have their own families, they no longer rely on each other as before.”

It makes sense to focus on their own families, but I still hope we will get to see their brotherly love in action every now and then.

What to look out for...

Happy National Cat Day to all my fellow feline lovers!
