South Carolina Republican state Rep. Chris Corley was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly beating a woman who reportedly caught him “cheating.”

Deputies from the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office were called to Corley’s home on Monday where a woman accused him of hitting her in the face and threatening to kill her children, the Aiken Standard reported.

According to the arrest warrant, the woman said that Corley was “caught cheating.”

She told deputies that Corley beat her with a closed fist until he noticed blood coming from her head and heard her children screaming. She said that Corley retrieved a handgun from his car, and then came back into the home and pointed it at her.

Corley threatened to kill himself and then went into the bedroom, the report stated.

The state representative insisted to police that the two had gotten into a verbal disagreement when she accused him of cheating. He said that he was forced to push her because she attempted to strike him with a closed fist.

Corley was arrested on charges of first-degree domestic violence and pointing and presenting firearms at a person. He was being held at the Aiken County detention center. A bond hearing was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.

"With a president whose performance is as rotten as Trump’s (Gallup also shows him with a 43 percent job approval rating), his only hope was to make his opponent even more unappealing than himself," wrote Rubin. "Trump, however, never settled on an effective attack on Biden and, in any case, cannot stand ceding attention to anyone else.

In other words, Trump’s raging narcissism has prevented him from doing what was necessary to give him a reasonable chance to win reelection."

Fox News host predicts impeachment for President Biden — right after inauguration

Published

Fox News' host Greg Gutfeld ranted on Thursday that the day after Vice President Joe Biden is inaugurated that Republicans should impeach him.

Yelling into the camera, Gutfeld ranted that Trump got rid of ISIS and stopped North Korea from setting off nuclear weapons, both of which aren't true.

"So, now we're all talking about are "words, words, words' as opposed to Joe Biden's deeds," he continued. "There's a foreign policy issue we should discuss. He has compromised himself. And to Jesse's point, once -- If he actually wins, impeachment proceedings start the day after inauguration."

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace blasted President Donald Trump for not caring about his staff much less "his own godd*mn supporters."

Speaking with conservative Charlie Sykes and Democratic strategist Basil Smikle, Wallace showed a new Lincoln Project ad with Sam Elliott about fathers and sons and what it means to be a "man of family and faith."

"Above all they taught us to own up to it when we did something wrong," the ad says before showing a video of Trump saying he doesn't accept responsibility for the failures of the coronavirus.
