George Zimmerman took a lot of heat recently for auctioning off the gun that he used to kill Trayvon Martin for $250,000, but he’s not showing any signs of remorse. In an interview with KTNV Channel 13 Las Vegas, Zimmerman said that he was proud to sell off the gun and added that he’s going to donate the money he made to police officers who have been shot while on duty.
He didn’t stop there, however, as he also unleashed a slew of insults at his political foes, whom he said inspired him to sell off the gun in the first place.
“I was tired of Hillary Clinton’s anti-gun rhetoric,” Zimmerman explained when asked what gave him the idea to sell off the gun. “She has been stumping around for a false campaign for the Trayvon Martin Foundation. She lied saying that I killed him when he was walking home in his daddy’s neighborhood. Which if anyone watched more than seven minutes of the trial they would know that is false.”
When asked whether he was concerned that selling off the gun might have upset a lot of people, Zimmerman defiantly stated that he initiated the auction for altruistic reasons.
“I want all the Black Lives ‘activists,’ which I think are just absolute pansies, to realize that anybody and everybody that they try and hurt, all they’re doing is guaranteeing I’m going to step in to make their [purported victims’] lives 10 times better than before their Black Lives Matter campaign,” Zimmerman said, before also unloading on “racists” like Barack Obama and Eric Holder who were out to get him.

Morning Joe destroys your Facebook friends’ excuses for voting for Trump
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said most of the people he grew up hate President Donald Trump, but they're voting for him anyway.
The "Morning Joe" host said they share many of his concerns about the president and his fitness for office, but he said they always offer excuses for holding their nose and voting to give him four more years.
"It's good talking to them and just saying, so why are you voting for this man?" Scarborough said. "'Well, he's a terrible guy, he's a horrible example for my kids, I'd never invite him over to the house, he's despicable -- I hate him, I just hate him,' but and then, fill in the blank, AOC or Nancy Pelosi or Bernie Sanders or regulations or tax cuts or 401(k)s, and I say, so, well, we have right now a president of the United States who is demanding that his attorney general arrest the former vice president of the United States, his chief political competitor. This is something that happens or happened in the former Soviet Union, this is something that happens still in Russia."
Trump ‘is hemorrhaging support’ and is flailing badly to win it back: reporter
President Donald Trump is trailing Democratic rival Joe Biden in the polls, and one veteran journalist said that he seems clueless about how to stop the bleeding.
Journalist Alex Wagner, the host of Showtime's "The Circus," told CNN on Wednesday that President Donald Trump's flailing attacks on Dr. Anthony Fauci and "60 Minutes'" Lesley Stahl are not part of some grand strategy to stage a comeback in the 2020 presidential election.
"The idea that President Trump has somehow hatched a multi-pronged plan to make a closing argument in the last remaining days of the election is a fallacy," she said. "He is hemorrhaging support among suburban women and seniors, and what is he doing? Taking on a fight with the elder statesmen of the most venerable news brand in America. She is an older woman at precisely the time he needs to be getting women and seniors."
Progressives unite for last-ditch effort to delay Amy Coney Barrett vote — by impeaching Bill Barr
Progressive activists are urging House Democrats to essentially kill two birds with one stone by impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr -- which would delay the confirmation vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
"Attorney General Barr has acted to subvert the laws that he, as our nation's chief federal law enforcement official, is duty-bound to uphold," more than 20 progressive groups signed in a joint letter.
"Attorney General Barr has made a career out of undermining our democracy and it is pellucidly clear that he has been ramping up efforts to undermine the upcoming elections and invalidate the votes of millions of Americans," the groups wrote.
