Food truck workers attacked by ‘rich’ guys hurling racial slurs: ‘Dude, I’m totally getting away with this’

Published

on

Three Denver food truck vendors said they were attacked by a group of men after refusing service to a customer who was hurling racial slurs.

Terrence Gibbons said three men placed an order about 8:30 p.m. Friday, after the Colorado Rockies’ home opener, when one of the men began yelling obscenities and racial slurs, reported KMGH-TV.

“He pretty much singled me out for being black by using a word we’re all familiar with,” said Gibbons, who was serving barbecue from this new truck for just the second time.

“He kept using the N-word,” said Gibbons, owner of Big T’s Barbeque. “He kept saying that I didn’t really know what it was like to be black.”

He refused to serve the men, who he said appeared to be drunk, and one of them punched Gibbons’ friend in the face.

A fight broke out between the unruly customers and Gibbons and two friends helping him serve food.

One of the customers jumped Gibbons from behind and slammed his head into a car window, shattering the glass and knocking him unconscious.

Gibbons and a friend, Karl Umland, were hospitalized – but not before snapping photos of two of the assailants before they fled.

“I told him he wasn’t going to get away with it,” Umland said. “He was, like, ‘Dude, I’m totally getting away with this — my whole family is rich. We’re wealthy and my dad’s an attorney.’”

Photos of the suspects went viral within 48 hours, Umland said.

Published

on

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."

A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honor to dedicate “Trump Heights” — first time Israel has dedicated a village in honor of a sitting president since Harry Truman (1949). Happy Birthday Mr. President!! @POTUS pic.twitter.com/fdYWzokFLK
