Another family from the reality TV series Sons of Guns is facing charges of child abuse.

According to New Orleans Fox affiliate Channel 8, Kristafor Ford and his wife Stephanie Hayden were arrested on Friday for beating a 9-year-old boy with a belt hard enough to leave severe bruises on his buttocks and upper legs.

Ford is charged with administering the beating while Hayden, the boy’s mother, stood by and watched. Ford is the boy’s stepfather.

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office told Channel 8 that Ford was charged with cruelty to a juvenile and Hayden with principal to cruelty to a juvenile.

Sons of Guns ran for several seasons on the Discovery Channel and centered around Red Jacket Firearms, a Louisiana-based custom firearms company. Red Jacket’s founder and star of the reality show, Will Hayden, was arrested and charged with the rape of his 11-year-old daughter in August. In September, another woman came forward and accused Hayden of raping her when she was 12 years old.

The Discovery Channel canceled Sons of Guns after the initial set of allegations surfaced against Hayden.

"It was indecorous of the president to shoot someone on Fifth Avenue," Shaub said, imagining a scripted GOP response. "I would have preferred he not do that. In the strongest possible terms, I add that I find it to be generally inconsistent with the higher aims of responsible governance. And you can quote me on that."

Rick Santorum falls apart during CNN defense of Trump as fellow Republican Charlie Dent smirks

Published

As CNN contributor Rick Santorum struggled to defend Donald Trump's quid pro quo proposal to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday morning, his fellow Pennsylvania Republican, former Rep. Charlie Dent, laughed at his fumbling for answers.

Sitting down with "New Day" host John Berman, Santorum once again attempted to make the case that the president was withholding aid over Ukraine corruption and not because he was seeking dirt on political opponents -- and didn't fare well as Berman kept fact-checking him.

With the two former GOP lawmakers on split-screen, Santorum refused to concede that the president was asking for a personal favor during the phone-call that eventually led to a House impeachment inquiry into the president's actions.

Ukraine’s ambassador to Austria shreds Trump allies for giving Putin their ‘enthusiastic help’

Published

on

Olexander Scherba, who currently serves as Ukraine's ambassador to Austria, sent out a scathing tweet on Friday excoriating allies of President Donald Trump who seem hellbent on helping Russian President Vladimir Putin reassert Russia's dominance over Eastern Europe.

In his tweet, Scherba explained the scope of Putin's ambitions, which he said went far beyond seizing Ukrainian territory.

"Putin isn’t just fighting Ukraine," he wrote. "He is fighting the whole world order, created by Reagan."

The ambassador then turned his attention to American supporters of President Donald Trump who have been cheering Putin's actions.
