Duggars accused of animal cruelty after son-in-law deliberately hits cat while sledding

Published

An Instagram video showing members of Arkansas’ Duggar clan sledding on a snow-covered hill has raised animal lovers’ hackles across the Internet.

According to BuzzFeed, the short video clip was posted March 1 ago by Derick Dillard, who is married to Jill Duggar, one of the daughters of the famously fecund 19 Kids and Counting family.

In the video, Dillard slides down the hill on a flat piece of metal directly toward an orange tabby cat that is crouched in the snow.

“Move, cat,” Dillard said before beginning his descent toward the animal.

“Push him, push him, push him!” someone shouts over and over as Dillard plows into the cat, which does not appear to see him coming.

Social media users have responded furiously, accusing the so-called “Quiverfull family” of deliberate cruelty toward the animal.

“Sure don’t think running over a cat and laughing about it is funny. Clearly you are not very Jesus like either,” wrote an Instagram user.

Another said, “Not cool, guy. No longer a fan. Cruelty towards animals is not Christian-like behavior. I certainly hope you don’t have the same disregard for your child as you do this helpless cat.”

“Ugh, what an a–hole. This whole family is a hot mess and horrible people,” said another user.

At press time, the Instagram post had more than 1,000 comments.

On Dillard (@Derick4Him)’s Twitter post about the incident, commenters were equally scathing.

Published

President Donald Trump spent some of his time at his Ohio rally Saturday, saying that under his leadership, the military has developed a secret hydrosonic missile.

There's just one problem: Hydrosonic is a toothbrush.

The Hydrosonic Pro is a Curaprox product that boasts "ultra-fine, gentle CUREN® filaments."Hypersonic missiles are weapons that can travel at 17 times the speed of sound and Navy warships will be outfitted with them. Trump also seems confused about the facts, saying that the missile travels at five times the speed of normal missiles.

‘Jarring’: PA Trump fans attack polls making so much noise poll workers couldn’t read instructions to voters

Published

One Pennsylvania polling place fell under a full out attack on those standing in line to vote and trying to cast a ballot on Saturday.

In a Twitter thread, Behavioral Economist Alex Imas explained that while he was casting his ballot on the outskirts of Philadelphia County, PA Saturday, a parade of semis and other cars surrounded the polling place, laying on their horns.

"I arrived just as polling place opened. Short line. Thought I'd be in and out in 20 minutes tops. Even w/ this short line, it took 2+ hours," he explained.

"Then the next Semi followed, then the 3rd," he continued. "A motorcade of semis, jeeps, and a few sedans drove down the road. All honking. All flying Trump 2020 flags. With people yelling out the window. This motorcade snaked around the polling place the entire time I was there (2 hrs)."

Trump gives 9/11 first responders back the $3.3 million he took from health fund: GOP Congressman

Published

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told Rep. Peter King (R-NY) announced that the 9/11 first responders would get the $3.3 million back that President Donald Trump stole from the program that helped them with medical treatments.

Those at the Twin Towers site in the days following the terrorist attacks breathed in a series of toxic gasses and asbestosis, leading them to have a slew of health problems years later. A fund was set up to ensure that those heroes were always taken care of for the rest of their lives as they suffered through their final years.

“It’s a great victory for really deserving people,” King told the New York Daily News Saturday. "I mean this just never should have happened, but we fought hard, we got it done."
