“I got up this morning to go to work and the car was parked a couple of doors down,” Amber Timmons told Denver 7. “I came out and was surprised to see it all covered in graffiti and hate messages.”

Timmons’ car was covered in black paint with words like “tranny” and “Trump” drawn alongside Nazi symbols. She had previously written “love trumps hate” and “not my president” in erasable marker on her windows.

“It’s hard to describe,” she said. “The first thought is shock. You just can’t believe it. You hear about it happening with others, but you never think it’s going to happen to you … It’s a personal attack against me as a person.”

While Timmons struggled coming to terms with the vandalism, messages of support poured in. In Facebook posts, she shared images of her friends helping her clean the paint off her vehicle.

“We are successfully ERASING THE HATE!!!” Timmons wrote. “We are not going down… You fight hate with love… so whoever did this… I LOVE YOU!! And love to everyone out there who came to my support and love. Thank you so very much!!!”

Timmons said she came out of her apartment to find a different kind of message on her car: Post-It notes reminding her “you are loved!”

”I am deeply sorry this happened to your car,” one of the Post-It note read. “Do not worry though, this is just the racist/homophobes getting scared of America not complying w/inequality. Love + peace wins always!”

Timmons said while she’s “definitely” rattled by the incident but insists, “you don’t fight hate with hate.”

“If I have to change my lifestyle, it means hate wins,” she said. “And hate doesn’t win. Love wins.”

These 7 details from the damning Sharpiegate report show it was a dark omen of Trump’s destructive potential

Published

on

While it was dismissed by some as an overhyped media obsession, the presidential scandal that has come to be known as "Sharpiegate" was, in fact, an early warning sign of the truly catastrophic potential of Donald Trump.

The story arose out of Hurricane Dorian, which began its deliberate march up toward the East Coast of the United States in late August and early September of 2019. It ravaged the Bahamas, and officials feared the damage it could inflict stateside. But then came a Trump tweet on Sept. 1, and later comments to reporters, in which he warned that Alabama was in the storm's path. He said it was among the states "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated."

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asks why Bill Barr is trying to ‘erase Robert Mueller’s investigation’ before November

Published

on

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace returned to television Friday night to address what she called outright corruption in the Trump White House after another example of the president trying to escape the consequences of the law.

Wallace began by calling Attorney General William Barr nothing more than Trump's "bouncer."

"He has been intellectually overestimated from day one. He is not a mastermind of anything," said Wallace. "He is Donald Trump's body man."

She cited "well-sourced spin" coming from the White House Friday evening, because there were people that she said were "enlisted" with trying to talk Trump out of commuting Roger Stone's sentence. She anticipated that Barr and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone may huff and puff about the act, but that they won't quit over it. "And we should remember their names forever. They are all accomplices in the greatest corruption of one of the most sacred powers."
