Here's a quick summary of the top stories on charismanews.com:
After being banned from social media, former President Donald Trump is following in the footsteps of embattled Mike Lindell in taking the first steps to allegedly create his own social media platform by launching an online site called 45office.com.
The site is a place to "fulfill our promise to put America first," the website's homepage reads. "Through this office, President Trump will remain a tireless champion for the hardworking men and women of our great country – and for their right to live in safety, dignity, prosperity and peace," it continues.
The president and first lady Melania Trump said they hope the site fosters communication between them and the American people. "The official website of the 45th President of the United States will allow individuals to submit correspondence, scheduling requests, and press inquiries for President and Mrs. Trump," The Boston Herald reports. "President and Mrs. Trump are continually strengthened by the enduring spirit of the American people, and they look forward to staying in touch."

ORU was eventually eliminated from the tournament on Saturday night by No. 3 seed Arkansas. But it made its presence felt in March.
The announcement of rapper Lil Nas X's limited edition Satan sneakers has created a media firestorm, which was the most obvious goal of the campaign. After all, how much money can be made from a run of 666 sneakers, all allegedly featuring a drop of human blood? Yet there are practical takeaways from this publicity stunt.
First, while the sneakers will be here today and gone tomorrow, we must not underestimate Lil Nas X's influence on children in general. Rather, as reported by NPR on Jan. 5, children are his "core audience right now," and by children, NPR meant little children.
I'm talking about children who watch Sesame Street. (Check out this video of the rapper appearing on Sesame Street and performing with the Muppets.) I'm talking about elementary school children.
