Houston waiter receives $5,000 tip

Published

on

A waiter in Houston, Texas will lay claim to one of the biggest tips ever received for someone in his profession, telling KPRC-TV that he was given $5,000 from a pair of regular customers.

Greg Rubar has been a waiter at D’Amico’s restaurant for 16 years, but never had a day like the one he witnessed on Saturday.

“He said, ‘We’re still going to come in, but we’re not going to tip you for a while,’ Rubar said Wednesday. “He said ‘This is for you to go and buy a nice car.'”

Rubar had lost his car in a storm several weeks ago, resulting in him taking cabs and buses to get to work.

D’Amico’s co-owner Brina D’Amico Donaldson admitted her obvious shock at the size of the tip, but indicated how Rubar is one person who deserves such a pleasant surprise.

“He’s an incredibly hard worker. He would work every shift if we would let him,” he said.

While the NYPD has never released video of the shooting, the Bronx District Attorney’s Office released footage of it last month, along with a detailed report. ProPublica separately obtained parts of the videos.

The View’s Ana Navarro drops the hammer on election challenge: ‘One more Trump fraud’

Published

"The View" co-host Ana Navarro called out President Donald Trump's efforts to undermine U.S. democracy as just another "grift."

The president's efforts to overturn his election loss to Joe Biden have set Republicans against each other in Georgia, where both Senate seats -- and the GOP majority -- remain up for grabs in a Jan. 5 runoff.

"When your enemy is shooting themselves, don't get in the way," Navarro said. "Look, if I were [Sen. Kelly] Loeffler or [Sen. David] Perdue, frankly, I would draw the curtains, bolt the doors, shut off the lights and ask somebody to wake me up when he's gone."

‘Simply not true’: Fox News reporter fact-checks Trump’s latest election ‘fraud’ conspiracy theory

Published

on

A Fox News reporter debunked President Donald Trump's latest conspiracy theory intended to overturn his election loss in Georgia.

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani claims to have new video evidence of Fulton County election workers illegally counting ballots after Republican observers left State Farm Arena, which he argues should be enough to throw out the state's mail-in ballots -- but Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins disputed those allegations.

"Here they produced what they allege is new evidence of surveillance camera video showing Fulton County election workers, you see here, illegally counting ballots with no supervisors present, affecting potentially 24,000 ballots," Jenkins said.
