"People are so angry at what is taking place," Mr. Trump told Fox News.

“People are so angry at what is taking place,” Mr. Trump told Fox News. “Whatever we can do to help because the temperature has to be brought down in the country. If it isn’t, terrible things are going to happen.”

The motherfucker is setting the stage for what he wants.

A Florida man was convicted of a hate crime after he ran a Black man's car off the road and tried to attack him. The victim knew mixed martial arts and put him in a chokehold until police showed up.

A Florida man was convicted of a hate crime after he ran a Black man's car off the road. He didn't expect the victim to put him in a chokehold until police arrived.

Jordan Patrick Leahy, 29, was found guilty by a federal jury after prosecutors presented evidence that Leahy threatened a Black man traveling with his family, according to a statement from the Department of Justice.

On August 8, 2021, Leahy encountered the victim – named J.T. in the statement – as he traveled with his girlfriend and daughter. Leahy began to call J.T. racial slurs and "used his car in an attempt to force J.T. and his family off the road," according to the statement.

"When officers from the Pinellas County Sherriff's Office arrived on the scene, Leahy made numerous statements evidencing his bias motive, including telling the officers that Black people need to be kept 'in their areas,'" the DOJ statement said.

Texas Rep Says He'll Never Eat 'A Whole Plate Of Dog Penis' Again

Texas Representative Ronny Jackson met an interesting question with an even more interesting answer while on a podcast last week.

Jackson was asked what his last meal on Earth would be if he could plan it, according to Chron.

"It won't be dog penis. I ate a whole plate of dog penis one time. I'm not doing that again," he said.













The congressman went on to give some much-needed context to the situation. He explained he tried the dish in South Korea. It's likely Jackson was referring to "Gaebul," a fish eaten in South Korea that translates to "penis fish," the news outlet reported. /snip

Okay commentary with rudimentary info on the tRumpster who decided he was going to single-handedly take on the FBI proving the MAGA crowd to be populated with remarkably stupid people.

Mr. tRump, That was not a raid...

It was a group of friendly FBI agents touring Mar A Largo.

(paraphrased from a FB meme)

tRump should have hired Fawn Hall for document removal...

"National Security Council staff member Oliver North and his secretary, Fawn Hall, begin shredding documents that would have exposed their participation in a range of illegal activities regarding the sale of arms to Iran and the diversion of the proceeds to a rebel Nicaraguan group. On November 25, North was fired but Hall continued to sneak documents to him by stuffing them in her skirt and boots. The Iran-Contra scandal, as it came to be known, became an embarrassment and a sticky legal problem for the Reagan administration."

Alex Jones Sent 'Intimate Photo' Of His Wife To Roger Stone, Lawyer Says

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/alex-jones-naked-photo-wife-roger-stone_n_62f24453e4b0133dd5b2cf9d

Alex Jones, the Infowars host who’s been ordered to pay tens of millions in damages for spreading lies that the Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax, may now have another problem closer to home.

The far-right conspiracy theorist sent an “intimate photo” of his wife to longtime Donald Trump crony Roger Stone, according to a lawyer for the Sandy Hook parents who won their defamation lawsuit against Jones. (Watch the video below.)

Attorney Mark Bankston previously revealed that lawyers for Jones accidentally sent him two years of Jones’s text messages, including intimate ones. On Monday, Bankston told “The Young Turks” that one text contained an “intimate photo” of Jones’ wife that was sent to far-right provocateur Stone.

“I’m a little concerned about it because that intimate photo was sent to Roger Stone, and I don’t know if that was consensual,” Bankston said. /SNIP
