Gregg Nunziata, a general counsel for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), is calling on his party to actively purge former President Donald Trump from its ranks on the grounds that he is a danger to the American republic.
Writing on Twitter, Nunziata took stock of the latest controversies swirling around the former president, who is the only person in this history of the presidency to have been impeached two times.
In particular, Nunziata pointed to Trump's dinner with neo-Nazi Nick Fuentes and his call for the "termination" of the United States Constitution to return him to power as red lines that the GOP should simply not tolerate.
"Former president, current candidate, likely GOP frontrunner this week dined with a Nazi and called for the dissolution of the U.S. Constitution," he wrote. "Sorry, GOP electeds, I know you don't want to be asked about this all the time, but we own it until we purge it."
Trump's declaration that the Constitution must be "terminated" came in response to revelations that Twitter removed pornographic photographs of Hunter Biden in the runup to the 2020 election.
"So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION?" Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform. "A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great 'Founders' did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!"
A Florida man engaged in what law enforcement officials are calling a "bad idea" by trying to steal from a Walmart that was crawling with police officers.
Local news station WNDU reports that the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office this week detained a man it is identifying solely as "Brad" decided to steal from the Walmart in St. Cloud, Florida while it was hosting a "Shop with a Cop" event in which children in the community go Christmas shopping with local officers.
The man tried to steal from the store at a time when roughly 40 officers were present, along with Osceola County Sheriff Marcos Lopez.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office mocked the suspect in a post on its Facebook page in which it chided him to try stealing from a store where dozens of law enforcement officers were nearby.
"Brad decided to steal from our good neighbors and partners at Walmart in St. Cloud while we were conducting the Shop With a Cop event with the children of our community," the office wrote. "Bad idea, Brad!"
The niece of former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was reportedly kicked off of an airplane after she accused a Latino family of being "drug mules."
The Times-Picayune reports that Christie's niece, 25-year-old Shannon Epstein, confronted the family after boarding her flight going from New Orleans to New Jersey on Thanksgiving Day.
According to law enforcement officials, Epstein asked the family if they were "smuggling cocaine" and then became increasingly irate to the point where airline workers asked her to leave the plane.
Epstein refused, which led to the airline workers calling up Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies to have her removed.
At this point, reports the Times-Picayune, Epstein became physically violent.
"In the scuffle, she injured six deputies, biting one of the arm and breaking the skin, and kicking another in the groin," the newspaper writes. "Seven deputies were needed to handcuff Epstein to a wheelchair, so that she could be moved to the airport security office... She continued to shout vulgarities and try to bite deputies."
Epstein was subsequently arrested and charged with six counts of battery on a police officer, three counts of disturbing the peace, one count of resisting arrest by force, and one of remaining on an airplane after being ordered to depart.
