Sgt. La David T. Johnson’s mother, Cowanda Jones-Johnson, told The Washington Post that she was present during the call from the White House on Tuesday to Johnson’s widow, Myeshia Johnson. Johnson’s mother also stood by an account of the call from Rep. Frederica S. Wilson (D-Fla.) that Trump told Johnson’s widow that her husband “must have known what he signed up for.”
“President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband,” Jones-Johnson said.
Trump lashed back. He denied Wilson’s account in a Twitter message Wednesday. He said he had “proof” that the exchange did not go as Wilson had described. Trump did not elaborate, but White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president had not taped the conversation. She said several White House staffers were in the room during the call, including chief of staff John Kelly.
Twitter Fingers Trump defended himself in his usual ham-fisted fashion, using the finesse of a stampeding water buffalo. Although all of this is speculation, how shocking would it be if it were true? Also “that Congresswoman” has a name, Mr. President.
Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend Marilou Danley has been detained and the house they shared raided by police following the attack that left 50 dead and 200 more injured.She is believed to be an Australian citizen of Indonesian heritage and was described by police as his room mate or companion.
She lived on the Gold Coast in Queensland for more than a decade with her former husband, an Australian man, who has since passed away. She moved to the United States 20 years ago.
Adding: ‘He was just a guy. Something happened, he snapped or something, he was just a guy.
‘He has no political affiliation, no religious affiliation, as far as we know. This wasn’t a terror attack’.
Early on Monday morning police in Las Vegas issued a statement to say that Danley was no longer a person of interest in the investigation.
Paddock was confirmed dead early in the investigation, leaving police in search of 62-year-old Marilou.
She and the shooter are said to be roommates or companions, though the precise nature of their relationship has not been made clear.
California police arrested the man suspected of sucker punching a black supporter of President Donald Trump at at a vigil for people who died at the hands of illegal immigrants.Officers with the Laguna Beach Police Department arrested Richard Losey late on Tuesday night on suspicion of battery assault and making terroristic threats for punching R.C. Maxwell, a black conservative, Daily Caller reported.
Losey punched Maxwell during an America First rally which was attended by a few dozen people who oppose illegal immigration. The few people that gathered were quickly outnumbered by an Antifa extremist mob.
Police kept everyone safe by keeping the group separate, but a video shows Maxwell on the Antifa side trying to engage in peaceful dialogue with the group. This is when Losey snuck up behind Maxwell and threw a loaded punch.
Maxwell reported the incident to the police who were able to track Losey down using videos from the scene. He was caught trying to buy a bus ticket back to Ohio.
Maxwell said he thinks his story has not made any mainstream media headlines because his skin color doesn’t go along with the narrative leftist outlets have been advancing for years.
“If the optics were completely different and I was a Black Lives Matter supporter and I was attacked on the Trump side of the protest I would be the spotlight on CNN right now,” Maxwell told Fox 11.
Losey identified himself on Twitter shortly after the rally.
“I did it because he would stop talking about Trump when all of us told him thousands of times we did not want to hear it. I am NOT racist,” Loset wrote.
Losey’s bail was set at $50,000.
Maxwell thinks he is especially “triggering” to Antifa because of the color of his skin.
“I think the fact that I’m a black conservative causes a lot of problems for the left side because there is no way for them to resolve that according to their narrative of what they think Trump supporters are,” Maxwell said.
Chicago rapper/songwriter Che “Rhymefest” Smith said Monday that he supports President-elect Donald Trump’s call for federal aid to fight violent crime in Chicago as long as it results in additional resources for certain neighborhoods.In his tweet, Trump express displeasure in the city’s violence, asserting that Mayor Rahm Emanuel should “ask for federal help” if local authorities can’t handle the crisis.
“If the president-elect is talking about federal intervention in terms of resources, then we welcome that,” Smith said in an interview with CNN. “Illinois is number one for African-American unemployment. When we look at violence, especially in Chicago, you can circle on a map the small areas where violence in happening.”
“If we can circle small areas, that means we can take what works in Chicago, by and large, and apply that to these areas that have been divested from,” Smith added.
In an August interview with CNN, the rapper invited Trump to Chicago as a response to the president-elect’s divisive rhetoric about the city.
“Chicago is in a fragile state,” Smith said at the time. “However, it’s not what Donald Trump is saying it is.”
Smith, said Monday that “it’s not the president’s job to stop violence in Chicago,” referencing President Barack Obama. He claimed that responsibility falls to the Chicago City Council and Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
Emanuel’s office responded to Trump’s tweet Monday, signaling a working relationship between the mayor and the president-elect. Emanuel met with Trump last month in New York City, delivering a letter from mayors across the country calling for protections for young immigrants.
