Published

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.

Trump’s Latino roundtable spirals off the rails as he questions Biden’s brainpower after ranting ‘I’m like a wall’

Published

President Donald Trump held a roundtable to discuss issues of importance to Latino voters in Doral, Florida on Friday, but it quickly went off the rails as the president attacked Democratic rival Joe Biden's mental acuity.

During the discussion, the president babbled about the border wall that he still hasn't finished building after nearly four years in office.

"I'll tell you what, I'm like a wall," Trump said. "You know we're building a wall on the southern border it's almost complete. But I'm like a wall between the American dream -- I'll say this because it sounds nice but it's true -- I'm like a wall between the American dream and chaos and then a horror show, a horror show, it would be very bad it would be very bad."
