Duggars hammered for ‘plundering’ free Krispy Kreme donut give-away

Published

on

The Duggar family inspired ire this week for snagging no less than 168 doughnuts during a giveaway at Krispy Kreme, Inquisitr reports.

The family apparently went to the doughnut chain for their “Talk Like a Pirate Day” promotion, where anyone who said something like “Arr matey” got a free doughnut. Customers who went the extra step of dressing up got a dozen doughnuts. It’s possible Krispy Kremes wasn’t expecting 14 Duggars to show up in full pirate gear, but they all got a box of doughnuts that it seems unlikely they’ll be able to eat.

A video posted to the Duggars’ Facebook page shows the kids holding their boxes and exclaiming, “Free doughnuts!”

This caused some backlash on social media.

Facebook user Linda Sheppard compiled the negative comments because the Inquisitr notes the Duggars actively delete them.

“Just because you ‘can’ get something for free, doesn’t mean you should!” wrote Susan Panther. “Too bad that wasn’t in the homeschool wisdom booklets. Do you realize that you not only cannot possibly eat that many donuts, but it is greedy to take more than you need?! And perhaps you are taking food out of mouths that truly could use it? I’m beyond disgusted by your selfish, pirating, plundering, pandering ways.”

Sally Reader wrote, “Seems excessive to take that many ‘free’ donuts from a business that was doing a promotion. Those donuts weren’t ‘free’ to make. Even if you give them away, you are still taking advantage of that business. That is just not right.”

Some people came to the defense of the family, though most of the comments were negative.

“Actually this family volunteers a lot in our community so I am sure they were donated to maybe our women and children shelter or other just homeless people,” Kayla Lambert wrote.

Trump loyalist Lindsey Graham locked in dead heat with Democratic challenger in red South Carolina

Published

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is locked in a dead heat in his bid to win re-election, a new online poll finds.

Graham, who has represented South Carolina in Congress since 1995 and held his Senate seat since 2003, has in recent months faced mounting pressure from Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison. A new Civiqs poll released this week finds the two rivals tied at 42%.

A deeper dive into the poll reveals more possibly unnerving developments for Graham. Fifty-six percent of South Carolina voters have an unfavorable view of the senator, while only 35% have a positive view of him.

WATCH: Don Lemon blasts Trump — and explains why nobody wants to hear from him on George Floyd’s murder

Published

on

CNN anchor Don Lemon slammed U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald for invoking President Donald Trump on Thursday.

“I know she has a tough job, but guess what, as long as we are being honest right now, nobody wants to hear from the White House or the attorney general right now,” Lemon said. “No one wants to hear from the man who wanted the death penalty to come back for the Central Park Five.”

“No one wants to hear from the man who says that the former president was not born in this country. No one wants to hear from the man who said there are ‘very fine people on both sides.’ Do you understand what I am saying?” he asked.
