World leaders look up during an aerial fly over at the new NATO headquarters in #Brussels on Thursday. Trump slammed fellow #NATO leaders for not meeting financial obligations in a public broadside.
.
The 27 other leaders looked on in awkward silence as Trump suggested most NATO countries were freeloaders not paying their share for military protection.
.
"Twenty-three of the 28 nations are still not paying what they should be paying and what they're supposed to be paying for their defense," Trump said. "This is not fair to the people and the taxpayers of the United States."

β€œThis is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.”
.
A long, long time ago… 40 years to be exact on May 25, 1977, the first β€œStar Wars” film debuted in theaters, forever changing Hollywood and spawning an empire in its wake.
.
It cost $11 million to make and would rake in nearly $461 million domestically. It was rebranded "Star Wars: Episode IV β€” A New Hope" and remains the No. 11 all-time top grossing movie, with three subsequent "Star Wars" films at numbers one, seven and 10.

President Donald Trump met Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday β€” the latest in a string of high-level meetings at sites sacred to the world's three great monotheistic religions.
.
The president smiled broadly beside @franciscus, who appeared subdued and stone-faced before their 30-minute private conversation.
.
However, #PopeFrancis' mood lightened considerably during their gift exchange.
.
Trump and the pontiff have disagreed in the past. During the election campaign, Francis criticized Trump's promise to build a wall on the Mexican border and his declaration that the U.S. should turn away Muslim immigrants and refugees.

Sir Roger Moore, who embodied the heartthrob swagger of the world's most famous spy "James Bond" for a dozen years, has died at age 89.
.
#RogerMoore played the infamous British spy from 1973 until 1985. He was the longest serving #JamesBond in the film's series.
.
"Being eternally known as Bond has no downside," Moore told The Guardian. "People often call me 'Mr. Bond' when we're out, and I don't mind a bit. Why would I?"

A massive new #landslide along California's iconic coastal Highway 1 has buried the road under a 40-foot layer of rock and dirt, the latest hit in winter of crippling slides and flooding.
.
A swath of the hillside gave way in an area called Mud Creek on Saturday night, covering about one-third of a mile of road and changing the Big Sur coastline immediately below, according to officials.
.
The state already had closed that part of Highway 1 to repair buckled pavement and remove debris after an earlier slide triggered by one of #California's rainiest winters in decades.

President Donald Trump placed a note in the Western Wall in #Jerusalem on Monday, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to visit one of #Judaism's holiest sites.
.
The historic visit is part of #Trump's efforts to highlight "the need for unity among three of the world's great religions" on his first foreign trip, senior administration officials said.
.
Trump stood alone with his hand on the wall for several moments before tucking a note between the cracks.
.
The #WesternWall is not officially recognized as Israeli territory, and the Trump administration has not been clear about whether they believe it is part of Israel.

After nearly 150 years, the show will not go on for the iconic @ringlingbros and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which folded up its Big Top for the last time Sunday night.
.
Throughout its 146 year history, the massive, traveling #circus elated crowds from small towns to big cities across America with its exotic animals, mile-long trains and death-defying feats β€” but not without courting its fair share of controversy.
.
The show was "one of these wonderful dynamic miracles in the annals of time, and that's where it's going," said Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson. "It'll be in the memories of many people for years to come."
