Big Shots: This Week's in Photos

You, With the Yarmulke!Washington, D.C.—President Donald Trump calls on an Orthodox Jewish reporter during a turbulent 77-minute press conference in the White House’s East Room on February 16. The president seemed to see the conference as a chance to rise above the crises that have marked his first weeks in office, telling the gathered reporters, “This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine.” After mocking reporters from CNN and BBC and raising the idea he might shoot a Russian ship “out of the water,” Trump called on a reporter from Ami Magazine, an Orthodox Jewish weekly. When the reporter asked about an uptick in anti-Semitic acts, Trump said it wasn’t a fair question, told him to sit down and added, “So here's the story, folks. Number one, I'm the least anti-Semitic person you've seen in your entire life.” Andrew Harnik/AP Baton RageParis—A vehicle burns in the suburb of Bobigny on February 11 as protesters—enraged by allegations that police beat and sodomized a 22-year-old black man with a police baton—set trash cans on fire and damaged storefronts. The protests soon spread to central Paris, where the authorities arrested dozens after clashes with demonstrators. Much like the unrest that roiled the capital in 2005, the angry crowds reflect the tension between police and residents of the city’s poor, immigrant-heavy suburbs. Four officers are now being investigated in the incident.

On February 15, Rohingya children seeking refuge rushed to meet the crew of the Nautical Aliya, a Malaysian ship carrying thousands of tons of food and emergency supplies. Since October 2016, tens of thousands of Rohingya—a persecuted, stateless Muslim minority—have fled to Bangladesh after police in Myanmar began a brutal crackdown against them. Allison Joyce/Getty
