A McDonald’s manager begged the police for help when teenagers said they only wanted glasses for water but were getting soda with the water cups instead.

According to a police report sent to 40/29 News, Cody Morris, 18, was arrested on a felony robbery charge for stealing a large cup of soda from an Arkansas McDonald’s.

The report says that the McDonald’s manager watched as three people drove through the drive thru ordering three large cups of water. The people then parked, came inside, dumped out their water and filled the cups with soda. The manager told the individuals to return the sodas. Two did, but Morris would not.

The manager then followed Morris to the parking lot and stood behind his car to try to prevent Morris from driving off. Morris allegedly ignored him and reversed hitting the manager. The manager then reached into Morris’s car attempting to wrestle the keys from Morris’s ignition when Morris hit him on the hand and the vehicle hit him again.

Springdale, Arkansas has a lower violent crime rate and property crime rate than Arkansas in general. The cost of a large soda at McDonald’s, which carries with it unlimited refills, is $1.49. McDonald’s also announced Monday that it would have all-you-can-eat french fries to all customers at select locations.

Trump and Kushner ripped on MSNBC for ‘the dumbest, most suicidal, self-sabotaging politics’

Published

Speaking on MSNBC this Tuesday, contributor John Heilman said it's hard to think of a "stupider thing to do politically in the closing days of a campaign" than to insult African Americans.

Heilman was referring to recent comments from Jared Kushner where he said the African American community has to "want to be successful" in order to benefit from Republican policies.

"So what's the dumbest thing you could do if you're Jared Kushner, the son-in-law?" Heilman said. "Go out and say a bunch of racist crap that would not only inflame African Americans, rightly so, but would give the most powerful motivator of Black turnout in the country, Barack Obama, as talking point as powerful as that one -- you heard Obama going after Jared Kushner ... he was driving the message of raising the stakes for that voting cohort that matters so much, is literally the dumbest, most suicidal, self-sabotaging piece of politics I've seen."

Trump says militia that sought to kidnap and kill Michigan’s Gov. Whitmer was ‘maybe a problem, maybe it wasn’t’

Published

In a startling moment during his Michigan rally Tuesday, President Donald Trump implied that the militia that attempted to kidnap and kill Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) was maybe or maybe not all that big of a problem.

“People are entitled to say maybe it was a problem, maybe it wasn’t," Trump told his rally.

It's a commonly used tactic by Trump to say things like "people say" or "some say" or raise hypotheticals so that it gives him the ability to say "I don't think that, people do." But he has never been able to cite the actual person that said that to him.

In this case, one would assume all political leaders would oppose kidnapping and killing a political leader regardless of the party to which he or she belongs. In Ohio they've opted for a gentler approach, merely trying to recall Republican Gov. Mike DeWine for his mask mandate.

‘No wonder he’s losing suburban women’: Trump flattened for promise he’s putting ‘your husbands back to work’

Published

President Donald Trump is drawing ire from women as his closing message to female voters is, "We’re getting your husbands back to work!"

Trump made the statement to a cheering crowd in Michigan Tuesday, though he didn't clarify what women should do if they work outside of the home and have been laid off due to the pandemic. It also appears the president has decided to ignore unmarried women entirely.
