Texas mom bites dog’s ear off to save 2-year-old daughter from being mauled

Published

A Texas woman and her 2-year-old daughter are recovering after a dangerous encounter with a friend’s dog that culminated in the woman biting the animal’s ear off to save her from being mauled.

KHOU-TV reported that the incident involving Chelsi Camp and her daughter Mackenzi ocurred at the end of March while Chelsi Camp was dog-sitting for a friend at their apartment complex in Alvin. Camp told KHOU that the dog, a pit bull, had been friendly toward her in the past, but attacked the child not long after encountering her for the first time.

“The dog came up and he was just curious,” Camp was quoted as saying. “When he smelled her, that’s when you saw it flip because I think he smelled my dog on her.”

Besides biting its ear off, Camp came to her daughter’s aid by stuffing her fist into the animal’s mouth and contacting authorities. She suffered damage to her arms and only recently regained full use of them. Mackenzi still bears scars on her face from the incident but has otherwise recovered. She is scheduled to attend counseling to address any mental trauma caused by the incident.

“I can actually hold her again,” Camp told KHOU. “I couldn’t hold her for the first week, that was the hardest part.”

Local police shot the dog after the incident. It was later euthanized at a local facility.

NYT columnist says one of Trump’s friends begged him to talk him out of launching war with Iran

Published

On Monday, Thomas Friedman of The New York Times spoke to CNN's Anderson Cooper, following President Donald Trump's attacks on him for calling his behavior racist in a recent article. The president accused him of "kissing [his] a**" in an Oval Office phone call.

Speaking to Cooper, Friedman denied Trump's characterization of their discussion.

"The president tweeted about a private conversation we had and lobbed in a few insults," said Friedman. "Basically, my response, which I put out on Twitter is that I was encouraged by a friend of his to speak to him after the downing of the American drone, because I thought it was wise that we not retaliate, and I thought he was wise not to retaliate, and this friend of his wanted me to encourage him in that, because he was evidently agonizing a little over that not retaliating. And I did that. I began the conversation by saying that 'I disagree with you, Mr. President on many things, but I think you did the right thing on this.' We talked for about four minutes. We also talked about China and we left it at that."

Democrats will lose the 2020 campaign if they treat it like a typical election and instead need to make a moral issue against President Donald Trump, author Tim Wise explained on MSNBC on Monday.

Wise is the author of the 2004 book White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son.

"As Democrats work on their strategy to counter President Trump ahead of the 2020 election. Anti-racism activist Tim Wise -- who helped to defeat David Duke in two campaigns in the 1990s -- provided this advice for Democrats," anchor Chris Matthews said.

He read excerpts of tweets from Wise.

‘They’re trying to gag Mueller’: Ex-White House attorney worries Bill Barr’s scheme will work

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr is trying to "gag" special counsel Robert Mueller before his public testimony before Congress on Wednesday, former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal worried on MSNBC on Monday.

"When you see these new reports that the Barr Justice Department continues to try to narrow what will come out of this hearing, what does that say to you?" MSNBC anchor Ari Melber asked.

"I’m extremely concerned. I don’t think it’s narrow. I think it looks like they’re trying to gag Mueller and trying to say anything not in the report is presumptively privileged," Katyal explained.
