Karma arrives at last? The man who killed Cecil the Lion has his boat stolen and crashed

Published

Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer outraged the world last year after he shot and killed a beloved lion named Cecil outside the Hwange National Park in Western Zimbabwe.

Although Zimbabwe decided to not press charges against Palmer, he did receive some delayed karma this week when a thief stole his boat and crashed it at the Caxambas Park Marina in Marco Island, Fla.

The Naples Daily News reports that Marco Island firefighters and EMS units were called to the Marina on Sunday to deal with a boat that had reportedly crashed. Shortly after arriving on the scene, police discovered that the boat belonged to Palmer and had been stolen by his neighbor.

The neighbor in question, Andrew Derwin, stole the keys to Palmer’s boat from the rear lanai of his vacation house on Marco Island on Sunday, police said. Derwin and one passenger, Nicolas Stolinas, crashed the boat on Sunday afternoon. Stolinas suffered injuries caused by the boat’s propeller and was treated by medics.

The boat itself is valued at $61,175, The Naples Daily News says, although the publication doesn’t go into great detail about what condition it’s now in since its Sunday crash.

Trump may ‘undo his presidency’ — with Republicans backing impeachment: CNN’s conservative anchor

Published

President Donald Trump's presidency is in peril as Republican lawmakers condemn the administration for green-lighting Turkey's ethnic cleansing of Kurds in northern Syria.

"President Trump this week set fire to the emoluments clause by announcing his own resort would host the G-7 summit. His Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, set fire to his boss’s innocence admitting on camera to the very thing Trump is being investigated for and possibly impeached over," CNN's S.E. Cupp said.

"Donald Trump has put the Republican Party through a lot. Most have gone willingly along with him -- kids in cages, a trade war, protecting Putin, honoring Kim Jong-Un, breaking the law, the lies, the insults, the fake news, the rape allegations. Defending the president over the indefensible has become something of a cottage industry for Republican lawmakers, few of whom have ever dared to call him out," she noted.

"The PM confirmed that the letter would be sent to Tusk today," the source said.

"Tusk will on that basis start consulting EU leaders on how to react. This may take a few days," he added.

Tusk said on Twitter that he was "waiting for the letter".
