One child’s love for candy led to her being put under the school’s stairs wearing handcuffs. Six-year-old Madisyn Moore, a student at Fernwood Elementary, took candy off of her teachers desk last week and the security guard decided to teach her a lesson.
It was nearly an hour later before the girl’s mom was able to rescue her. “I said ‘why you have my baby in cuffs?’” mother Marlena Wordlaw told NBC Chicago. “He said, ‘because I’m trying to teach them to stop taking stuff that don’t belong to them’.”
“They hurted,” the girl said about being put in the cuffs. “He snatched me out of my class. He made me get out in my handcuffs.”
“When he pulled her from under stairs she was crying,” Wordlaw said about her daughter. “He told me ‘I ‘m doing my job, I’m trying to teach her a lesson.’ I understand these teenage boys and whatever the case may be, yeah you can try to teach them a lesson but this is a little girl.”
The principal attempted to apologize to Wordlaw but she wasn’t having it. “I don’t accept your apology ever,” Wordlaw said she told the school’s head. “I’m more angry than anything, because it’s my only daughter. I feel like anything could have happened to her. Somebody could have touched her. She’s in the dark under the stairs,” Wordlaw continued.
She also says that she plans a lawsuit for the incident. Watch the full interview below:
Seth Meyers can’t stop laughing at Devin Nunes: ‘It’s like murdering someone and calling their ghost to testify’
"Late Night" comedian Seth Meyers summed up the day of hearings by saying it was devastating to President Donald Trump. If you don't believe him, he showed the humiliating clip of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) who looked dejected.
"Wow, look at his face!" Meyers said. "He looks like he just walked in on his parents having sex -- with someone else's parents. There's only two explanations for that face, either he just heard lengthy testimony detailing a criminal scheme so shocking to bring down the presidency of Donald Trump. Or he sharted, and he's trying to remember how far away his back-up pants are."
The Republicans’ impeachment lawyer made 2 huge mistakes in questioning Gordon Sondland
Ambassador Gordon Sondland delivered complex and convoluted impeachment testimony on Wednesday about his involvement in President Donald Trump’s Ukraine scandal. He gave detailed evidence recounting the president and the rest of the administration’s involvement in his effort to get Ukraine to launch investigations of Trump’s political opponents — including by leveraging a potential White House meeting and a hold on military aid.
But he also, to the Republicans’ delight, left some ambiguity about how much Trump had been involved in the effort to leverage the aid, saying that he had “presumed” Ukraine’s announcement of the investigations would release the hold. And he noted that, in one phone call the president — as the scheme was slowly being uncovered — Trump angrily denied there was a quid pro quo.
Rick Santorum smacked down for claiming Sondland testimony helped Trump
On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) tried to argue that the testimony of E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland actually helped President Donald Trump — and was promptly challenged.
"I think the Democrats had a good morning. I don't think they had a good afternoon," said Santorum. "I think what when the Republicans actually started questioning Sondland about the details, I think it fell apart a little bit."
"How so?" asked Chris Cuomo.
"He said the president never said any of these things to him," said Santorum. "In fact, what the president said, he quoted what the president said is, no, there's no quid pro quo. What he says is, well, I'm surmising, this is what I'm just sort of gathering. Did anything come from the president? No, it came from Rudy Giuliani."
