Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan told reporters on Sunday that she is “devastated” by the murder of Colorado police officer Garrett Swasey in the domestic terror attack on a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs.
According to ABC News, Kerrigan said she and Swasey grew up skating together in her home town of Melrose, Massachusetts.
“I called him ‘Ugh’, he called me ‘Yuck,’” Kerrigan told the Boston Herald. “We were always teasing each other like a brother and sister.”
She recalled that Garrett’s father David Swasey picked her up at school and drove her to the ice rink for practice every day when she was in high school. She said she is still trying to absorb the news.
Describing herself as “devastated,” Kerrigan said, “I am not surprised with the way he was living his life, as police officer helping others. It makes total sense, he was always like that.”

Still-free Epstein friend Ghislaine Maxwell likely cooperating with prosecutors: Vanity Fair columnist
High-powered wealth manager Jeffrey Epstein may have committed suicide — but the case looking into his alleged involvement in trafficking and raping teenage girls is far from over. One particular loose end is Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite who was close friends with Epstein — and who is accused of helping to groom Epstein's victims, and who has seemingly disappeared.
As Vanity Fair contributor William Cohen told MSNBC's Alex Witt, Maxwell is likely not really on the lam at all — she may be helping prosecutors in secret, to lull Epstein's other co-conspirators into a false sense of security.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid names every Trump-loving evangelical leader who refused to take her call on Trump’s ‘chosen one’ claim
On Saturday, in conversation with Muslim political commentator Dean Obeidallah, MSNBC's Joy Reid castigated evangelical conservatives for their silence on President Donald Trump anointing himself "the chosen one" and retweeting a radio host who compared him to the second coming of Jesus Christ.
"Dean, we reached out to a bunch of people," said Reid. "I wanted to know — I grew up in the church. The idea of somebody declaring themselves the next coming of God or the King of Israel, which is what the Romans used to belittle Jesus before they executed him for defying the Roman emperor — Now Trump saying it's a joke, it's apostasy. We reached out to Franklin Graham, Ralph Reed, Focus on the Family, Jerry Falwell Jr., Vice President Mike Pence, and the RNC. We got no response at all. We had Pat Robertson, who declined to comment."
Scaramucci busts White House staffers who ‘hate Trump’s guts’ yet still work for a ‘full-blown lunatic’
On MSNBC's "AM Joy" on Saturday, former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci acknowledged his own faults in supporting President Donald Trump for as long as he did — but urged that his experience has shown him that many more could be pulled out of the fold, if given an accepting opening to do so.
"I accept all criticism," said Scaramucci. "Joy, if you want to fault me and your viewers want to fault me for getting there late, I’m okay with that. I can accept that because I’m a flawed human being. Here is what I would say to everybody. This is an international crisis, you have to create an off-ramp that did what I did, spinning a Rubik’s cube and saying, this part is good, that part is good, that part is bad. And then through the process of cognitive dissonance, we started to lesson the parts that were bad."
