Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s daughter was threatened with charges in connection with her alleged involvement in a series of fights at an Anchorage, Alaska home, Talking Points Memo reported.

Authorities released audio and photos taken at the scene of the Sept. 6 incident, including a police interview with the homeowner, who identified himself as “Korey f*cking Klingenmeyer.”

“I think I might want to press charges on Bristol Palin,” Klingenmeyer says. “So bring one of your officers the f*ck up here. ‘Cause that’s where we’re going with this now.”

Klingenmeyer goes on to complain about the “Palin drama show” arriving at his home during a birthday party for his son and two other men. He accuses Bristol Palin and one of her sisters of threatening a woman at the event. Palin, he said, subsequently hit him “six or seven times” before falling to the ground when he stopped another punch.

Shortly afterwards, he said, he got into a “melee” with her brother Track and a group of other men in his driveway.

“We’re gonna take the f*cking legal f*cking side, because I know what’s coming tomorrow morning,” Klingenmeyer tells the officer. “And you and I both know what I’m talking about, so let’s get the paperwork f*cking rolling right now. I want to press charges against Bristol f*cking Palin, and if you want some witnesses, I can go get them.”

In her own interview with police, Bristol Palin said the altercation started when a woman pushed her sister Willow, before Klingenmeyer got involved.

“A guy comes out of nowhere and pushes me on the ground, takes me by my feet in my dress — in my thong dress in front of everybody — [and says] ‘Come on you c*nt, get the f*ck out of here, come on you sl*t, get the f*ck out of here,'” she tells authorities.

Sarah Palin can be heard briefly in two of the police’s audio recordings. In one instance, she tells Track Palin to cooperate with officers. In another, she expresses surprise that he was able to find his necklace after the disturbance.

“Track, that is such a God thing. See?” she says. “Track, that went to Iraq and Afghanistan. Let me see it. I can’t believe you found it. Let me put it in my pocket.”

At least one witness, Matthew McKenna — one of the people celebrating their birthdays that night — refused to share video of the incident.

“I know everyone here, and it’s just an unfortunate deal,” McKenna told police.

Despite Klingenmeyer’s threat, prosecutors decided not to press charges in connection with the fight.

Trump says militia that sought to kidnap and kill Michigan’s Gov. Whitmer was ‘maybe a problem, maybe it wasn’t’

Published

on

In a startling moment during his Michigan rally Tuesday, President Donald Trump implied that the militia that attempted to kidnap and kill Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) was maybe or maybe not all that big of a problem.

“People are entitled to say maybe it was a problem, maybe it wasn’t," Trump told his rally.

It's a commonly used tactic by Trump to say things like "people say" or "some say" or raise hypotheticals so that it gives him the ability to say "I don't think that, people do." But he has never been able to cite the actual person that said that to him.

In this case, one would assume all political leaders would oppose kidnapping and killing a political leader regardless of the party to which he or she belongs. In Ohio they've opted for a gentler approach, merely trying to recall Republican Gov. Mike DeWine for his mask mandate.

Trump’s closing argument to women: ‘We’re getting your husbands back to work’

Published

on

One week before the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump made his closing argument to women at a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan.

"I love women and I can't help it, they're the greatest," Trump said, four years after the Access Hollywood tape was released which showed him bragging about sexually assaulting strangers.

"I love them much more than the men," he added.

Trump also made an economic argument that sounded as dated as his talk about "suburban housewives."

"We're getting your husbands -- they want to get back to work, right? We're getting your husbands back to work," he argued.

Trump chants ‘COVID!’ ten times in a row after Obama slams him as ‘jealous’ of virus

Published

President Donald Trump on Tuesday again complained about the amount of media coverage being given to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump made the remarks at a campaign event in Lansing, Michigan, where he reminded supporters that he had been infected by the virus.

"I would like to give me full credit," the president said of his recovery. "I don't want to give the drug any credit. I want to say, because I am a very young person that's in perfect physical shape, I took that virus and I woke up the next morning and I felt like Superman."

Trump then motioned to members of the media at the event.
