Thibodaux Police have charged 30-year-old Jeremiah Wright with first degree murder over the killing of Jori Lirette, his seven-year-old special needs son.

Authorities have said that Wright has confessed to killing the wheelchair-confined boy.

“According to police, Wright decapitated Lirette, and dismembered his body over the home’s kitchen sink. Police say a passerby saw Lirette’s head on the sidewalk outside the family’s home Sunday afternoon.. It was near a garbage bag with the child’s dismembered body,” WWLTV reported.

“When you have a seven-year-old child, innocent child, that’s killed, that had no way to protect himself, it’s such a shock to this community,” Thibodaux Police Captain Calvin Cooks said.

“We’re thinking there may have been some tension between them before this [murder] occurred, arguing, perhaps physical fighting, we don’t know at this time.”

Veteran ex-Trump supporter: ‘Real veterans who remember their oath will support impeachment’

In an op-ed published in The Times of Israel this Wednesday, an Army veteran who has since renounced his support of President Trump accused the President of being "unpatriotic."

According to David Weisman, "real veterans who remember their oath will support impeachment."

"When I first got into politics, as I have mentioned numerous times, I thought the Republican Party was the party of upholding the Constitution and ethical principles," Wesiman writes. "I took the word of pundits thinking Republicans stood for truth, justice, and the American way. I never questioned their integrity when they condemned President Obama. Why? Because they were religious and it didn’t occur to me they would lie. Years later, if you are aware of my story, I learned that most of the demonizing of President Obama was propaganda. I’ve also learned to read the fine print of the Constitution because there’s more involved than just the right of free speech and the right to bear arms. Lots of nuance to acknowledge."

In a press conference Wednesday with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, President Donald Trump openly reminded that he only takes questions from people on his side.

"Would you like to pick somebody?" Trump asked Erdoğan after taking a question from the far-right OANN. "A friendly person from Turkey, please. Friendly. Only friendly reporters. There aren’t too many of them around."

Trump has increasingly refused to take questions from reporters who ask him actual questions that he both knows the answer to and will make him look good.

The White House hasn't hosted a "daily press briefing" for 247 days and not at all under the new press secretary, Stephanie Grisham. She has, however, had time to appear on Fox News multiple times to speak for the White House.
