The grief-stricken father of a Delaware high school student who was beaten to death by classmates spoke out on Friday, calling the 16-year-old victim the “love of my life,” Fox29 reports.

Amy Joyner-Francis went into the bathroom at Howard High School of Technology on Thursday morning, only to come out on a stretcher. She was airlifted to a hospital, where she would be pronounced dead.

Authorities have released little information on what happened inside the bathroom, but have questioned two female students.

“There was an altercation that initially started between two people, and my understanding is that additional individuals joined in against the one person,” a city official told CNN.

Later Thursday, the victim’s father tearfully spoke about his loss, describing his daughter as an honor-roll student.

“I think this is a dream, and I’m trying to wake up,” Sonny Francis told Fox29. “All I know is that my daughter is gone. And she was the love of my life, and it hurts.”

Francis said he thought his daughter was safe at school.

“I thought that the schools were a safe place that you could drop your kids off, and they will come home after school,” he told the station. “But apparently that’s not the case with some of the schools now. The children are out of control.”

"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."

Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office

Published

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

Published

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
