‘Godd*mn, what is this?’: Trevor Noah shocked by chaotic video of cops gunning down unarmed black man

Published

on

Donald Trump’s tornado of a presidential campaign has consumed the news cycle, and Trevor Noah refocused some attention on a fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man in Chicago.

Paul O’Neal was shot and killed by police July 28 after stealing a Jaguar and then leading officers on a foot chase, which video shows ended when police opened fire on the 18-year-old suspect and nearly shot each other.

“The (body) camera’s got the whole thing, except the actual shooting,” Noah said. “It’s a little suspicious, right? Makes you ask the question, why are the police only sloppy with evidence against them? If I run a red light they’ve got three camera angles and another with J.J. Abrams’ commentary track.”

Noah said each of these stories sheds a little more light on police violence, and he said the O’Neal slaying showed officers put themselves in danger by shooting toward one another while trying to kill the suspect.

“Goddamn, what is this?” Noah said, after watching body camera video of the incident. “That doesn’t look like a professional police video, it looks like your dad trying to play ‘Call of Duty.'”

The police have said officers believed they were under fire from O’Neal, who turned out to be unarmed, and Noah wondered why police guns couldn’t be manufactured to produce a distinctive sound — like patrol cars make.

“If you’re driving in a car and you hear someone behind you (honk), then you’re like, ‘Oh, there’s a civilian honking,’ so you know what you need to do — you need to tell them to ‘f*ck off, because I’m driving over here,'” Noah said. “But you know if you’re driving and you hear (a siren), then you go, ‘Oh, that’s the police,’ and then you pull over and you throw the weed out the window.”

Trump flip-flops on meeting with Iran with ‘no preconditions’– then blames it on the media

Published

on

President Donald Trump went off on the "fake news media" yet again, after his own appointees announced he was willing to meet with Iran.

"The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, 'No Conditions.' That is an incorrect statement (as usual!)," Trump tweeted.

In an odd twist, Trump announced just three months ago he'd be willing to meet with no preconditions.

“Not as far as I’m concerned – no preconditions,” the president said in a Meet the Press interview. At another point in the interview, he also said: “I think they want to make a deal. And my deal is nuclear.”

Internet fears Trump’s ‘locked and loaded’ tweet about oil field bomb means he’s gearing up for war with Iran

Published

the largest U.S. oil producer can be brought to its knees with a drone carrying a bomb. President Donald Trump responded to intelligence that the drone didn't originate in Yemen, but rather from Iraq or Iran, by saying he was "locked and loaded."

"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" Trump tweeted Sunday.

Donald Trump in coal hard hat thumbs up

President Donald Trump's promises to coal miners have fallen along with his other broken campaign promises. Another state is facing the harsh reality that Trump is not riding in on a white horse to save them.

According to Axios, three out of the nine coal companies in the Powder River Basin in northeastern Wyoming have filed for bankruptcy and another two companies are consolidating. Kentucky coal miners have been protesting Blackjewl, which filed for bankruptcy in July, withdrawing payroll dollars from miners' accounts. Little has been heard about the Wyoming workers as those companies crumble, however.
