Actor and activist D.L. Hughley is furious about the recent shooting of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, Oklahoma. But he’s also using it as an opportunity to slam former NFL players Jerry Rice, Ray Lewis and others who attacked Colin Kaepernick for his silent protest.
“I wish Americans were as upset at #TerenceCrutcher getting shot DOWN as they are at #ColinKaepernick not standing UP!#ItsTooMuch #TeamDl” he tweeted with a video.
“All the people from Jerry Rice to Jason Whitlock, to Ray Lewis….. who were so upset about Colin Kaepernick… not standing up.. I wish all of them were just as upset about Terence Crutcher getting shot down…”
When the news broke of the shooting, Hughley immediately took to social media to question America’s priorities. “Another unarmed black man gunned down by police on video, but Zika is an Epidemic? I’ll worry about a Mosquito when it can carry a badge!” he tweeted early Monday.

What would Russia prefer to happen in the UK election?
The UK election comes against the background of one of the worst periods in Russian-British relations since the end of the Cold War. Badly shaken by the 2006 poisoning of the former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko in London, relations spiralled further down in the aftermath of Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014. The poisoning of another former spy, Sergei Skripal, in March 2018 in Salisbury then killed off any hopes of a recovery in bilateral relations.
Why White Island erupted and why there was no warning
Five people have been confirmed dead, 18 have been rescued and are injured, some seriously, and several remain unaccounted for after a sudden volcanic eruption on Whakaari/White Island off the east coast of New Zealand.
The island is a tourist destination and around 50 people were on it when it erupted on Monday afternoon. Volcanologists at GeoNet, which operates a geological hazard monitoring system, described the eruption as impulsive and short-lived, with an ash plume that rose to more than three kilometres above the vent.
‘Pathetic weenie’ Ted Cruz buried by Morning Joe’s Donny Deutsch for latest suck-up to Trump
Members of the "Morning Joe " panel were both appalled and disgusted after watching a video of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) pushing Russian propaganda and defending Donald Trump over the weekend, recalling the ugly campaign the president ran against the Texas Republican in 2016.
Addressing Cruz's appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press," where he accused Ukraine of meddling in the 2016 election, host Joe Scarborough marveled out at how the senator debased himself in the service of Trump after what happened to him in 2016.
After the host brought up the interview, MSNBC regular Donny Deutsch had a few things to say about Cruz.
