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.

WATCH: Lewandowski’s lawyer freaks out, tries to block Congress from asking any further questions

Published

on

During the House Judiciary Committee testimony of President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski about the Russia investigation, Lewandowski's attorney frantically crashed the witness table and demanded that Congress stop asking questions of his client.

"Mister Chairman, as you know I am counsel for Mr. Lewandowski—" began the attorney.

"You are not a witness and you should not be seated at that table," cut in House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) sharply.

"I understand that," said Lewandowski's attorney. "I will leave after I register a formal protest based upon the debate that I heard. These seem to be unauthorized questions and I know you choose your words carefully—"

Lewandowski’s testimony will let Democrats build Nixon-like articles of impeachment: Ex-prosecutor

Published

on

As President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski combatively testified before the House Judiciary Committee, he admitted that Trump asked him to communicate to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions that former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation must be shut down. Aside from that revelation, most of the testimony was unproductive, with Lewandowski lashing out at members of Congress and running interference for the president.

But as former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti wrote on Twitter, these outbursts — and the fact that Trump sanctioned the way that Lewandowski behaved in the hearing — could be the basis for Democrats to write up articles of impeachment against Trump similar to those drafted against Richard Nixon in 1974:

Putin aims a weaponized barb at Trump over Saudi attack – and hits the mark

Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin joked this week about selling defense systems to Riyadh following weekend attacks on Saudi oil facilities. The gag was aimed at US President Donald Trump and it hit the mark with the precision of a guided weapon.

It was a masterful piece of trolling by the czar of trolls – a snide, disparaging jibe with an element of truth twisted into absurdity for maximum effect and laughs. At a joint press conference with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts in Ankara on Monday, Putin cast his bait into the volatile Persian Gulf region just days after devastating attacks on Saudi oil facilities exposed the limits of the Gulf kingdom’s expensive defense systems.
